Oh Yes I Cannes!

Whimsy  is never far away from this blog. But no visitor can argue that I don’t attempt to nourish your minds with some knowledge you may not know. Here is a lady I’d never heard of before today. She was an English actress named Simone Silva, and she wanted to make a big impression at the Cannes Film Festival in 1954. So, with a horrified Robert Mitchum (who recently celebrated his 100th birthday in the spirit world) looking on, she decided to whip ’em out. “I’ll do anything to become a star” was her mantra. These photos were big hits around the planet. Result? No Cannes do! – and she was asked to leave the festival. But she certainly succeeded in making an impression. Maybe even two. And now she is making her debut on highteadreams 63 years later. Magazine covers can be more entertaining than real life.

I knew there was an upside to feeling ill…but I can’t write any more posts for a while.

Why Say It With Flowers?

When you can say it with other people’s memes? This will be a change from my usual stuffy reviews. I churn out so many of those that eventually I will probably disappear up one of them, never to return. But the quotes below can speak for me today. I think I agree with them. Goes without saying I hope you are shocked and offended…I am!  🙂 [Read more…]

I’m Looking Through YouTube (For Funny Beatles comments)

beatles-1969Some people’s favourite band have always generated vast amounts of personal opinion from the public. It seems inexhaustible and I am guilty of adding to it here. Paul gets bashed the most, but I found insults aimed at all four. Yes, it can be much fun to read strangers opinions on all this analyzing of Liverpool’s Fab Three (+ Ringo)…with add – ons from this blogger. [Read more…]
