Lethal Music: a roundup of old posts

Marshmallow World

Poor Daddy and Beauty Queen Stepmama Lethal have been without heat and power for four days! And they are not hillbillies, mind you - they live in a major city. Here I am in Los Angeles, complaining that I'm "cold" in the 50+ heat, wearing my pink Isaac Mizrahi wellies in the rain. They went to stay at an elderly friend's, prompting BQS to tell me, "I feel like a turkey! That place is like an oven!" Old people always have the heat up high.

Still, I am in a Christmas-y mood this year for reasons unknown. It's not really because I love the Baby Jesus and am repulsed/frightened by Santa Claus. My favorite Christmas song is Dean Martin's version of "Marshmallow World," because it sounds like he got drunk and fell into a snowbank, and because I love Marshmallow Fluff, which you can't get here in LA. They have an abomination called "Puffed Jet Creme" by Kraft which sounds like something you'd fix airplanes with. Luckily, my cousin keeps me in a steady supply.


Is he the King of Cool or what? I'm forever crushing on Dino. Whenever I play this, the pup looks up when Dino sings, "like a pumpkin head," because that's his nickname.


Here's Dino and Frank.


THINGS


There's so much I love about this, of course beginning with Nancy's hair!


Hot Jerry Reed
People are droppin' like flies!


When you're hot, you're hot!


R.I.P. Ralph Young

Send Me The Pillow


Oh Frere, Jacques
Us gals have been chatting about Jacques Dutronc lately.



Hats off to Larry
Some days I just need a little Larry Hovis.



I love Joi Lansing



"Trapped in the Web of Love" - one of the best Scopitones ever, second only to Sonny King!

Well, maybe it's a tie between Joi and "Mother Nature Father Time" by Brook Benton.






I'm a Hovis Witness.
