Game Over, Man

Oh, what a bummer. Bill Paxton died yesterday. I was a big fan.  I loved him in, “Frailty” and “Aliens”. In Aliens when the rescue ship crashes, leaving the crew stranded on a planet with scary monsters, that’s the oft-quoted line he delivers

Hattie’s Smile

Hattie McDaniel is one of my all-time favorites. Her portrayal of Mammie in, "Gone With the Wind" is . . . OK, really, what could I possibly write about it that hasn’t already been written?  She was fabulous; I’ll leave it at that.  Today

John Adams

HBO’s Documentary Mini Series, “John Adams” is really great. Of course, I like history and I like Paul Giamatti, and Laura Linney (who play John and Abbigail Adams), so I was bound to like it. But I think it’s compelling enough that most people

Lucky Tom

I love Tom Petty, and I really like the TV show he was on, King of the Hill. Tom was the voice of “Lucky”, Hank Hill’s quirkily philosophical nephew in law.

One of Lucky’s most prominent traits was his goofy front teeth, as you can see in this

Marilyn Monroe’s Teeth

I’ve been watching old, “Mary Tyler Moore Show” reruns. They really stand the test of time. The show is still funny and relatively modern.  Mary looks amazing in 1970 just gorgeous. She had fabulous hair, wonderful clothes, such a pretty face

I can’t believe with all these MLK Day blogs I have written that I have yet to discuss Dr. King’s teeth. Maybe it’s because he seldom showed his teeth.

I just did a Google search for images of him, and this was the only one that I found showing

Wow, the Charlize Theron movie, “Monster” is great. It’s so dark and disturbing it’s certainly not for everyone. However, the transformation that Charlize Theron makes from gorgeous movie star to bedraggled, homeless, abused murderer is

I love, “The Walking Dead”.  I love Negan. There I said it, the nastiest villain of all time and I just love him. Really I love the actor who plays Negan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He’s so handsome and has that magnetic personality that shines

Olga’s Open Bite

I loved Olga Korbut. I remember 1972 summer Olympics very clearly although I was only 7 years old. Olga stole the hearts of Americans as the plucky little Soviet girl from Belarus. She was amazing on the uneven bars, her floor routine was great, and

Planes Trains & Automobiles

I love, “Planes Trains and Automobiles” the Steve Martin, John Candy movie. It’s a holiday classic. I really enjoy the fact that it plays on TV often at this time of year. It always makes me chuckle, and I still get choked up at the end.
