FLY the Friendly Skies

Thank you, Pan-Am! I'd like one of those Benzedrine Inhalers you used to offer, please. I supposed they are a "service item." (Although that wasn't their slogan - theirs was "The World's Most Experienced Airline, and I supposed with offering Bennie Inhalers on their menu, it was.)

Viva Rebecca!

I was hanging out at my galpal Rebecca's the other day. When you're at Rebecca's, things like Gene Simmons' codpiece are on the wall and there are signed thank-you photos of Raquel Welch. But that's not why I like going there. Rebecca is the only other person I know besides my pal Marky who has the same sick Baby Huey obesssion! When I spotted her HarveyToons lunchbox I nearly screamed.

When you are at Rebecca's, heavy metal rock stars come by needing their leather pants tailored. I don't know who they are and have to ask her while they are changing in the bathroom.
(This is another example of Rebecca's work, as I will not embarrass myself or rock star)

Here she is! I wrote her up as one of my LA Girls a few months back, too.

Lily Missed Out

After her recent black eye, she had several fashion options, but foolishly ignored the bombardment treatment:
even after our own Doctor Snidley offered to treat her for free!

Modern Men

Have you not found the man of your dreams? Maybe you need a Modern Man! Popcards has the MAN for you! They have a fine selection to choose from...

Maybe you need a businessman who works all day crunching numbers, Mad-Man style?

Or perhaps he is busy, taking important phone calls from high-ranking officials? Maybe he tells you these details, although he's really not supposed to?

Or you want the dashing life of a spy's girlfriend...as he goes through secret files!

You've been there and done all that. You want to settle down in the countryside with a man who can bring home the bacon and grind the wheat himself:

Maybe you're over it altogether. You've had it. Why not adopt a few smoking fish?

Marabou Feathers and Dead Things

My pal Scott Michaels just topped by with Jayne Mansfield's suitcase! It was in the trunk during her fatal accident and is dented. It contained a few marabou feathers (!) and he let me keep one which I put in a little treasure box. Inside was a gold chip from Gus Stevens' Supper Club which gave me chills.





Scott stopped by to borrow my copy of The Wild, Wild World of Jayne and I also gave him Skidoo and Boom! since I thought he should be watching more movies with exclamation points. He was kind enough to give the new 2012 - The Year in Death Calendar which everyone should get right away!

Guess Again is Right!

Carroll Baker

Our New Year's weekend was spent trying not to get too upset by the arsonist while watching Carroll Baker giallo films. In Baba Yaga (Devil Witch), CB plays a lesbian witch who nearly runs over fashion designer Valentina in her black Rolls while walking home in Milan at 3am in fur coat and silver platform shoes. She stalks her, giving her an S&M doll that comes to life and putting a curse on her camera that causes it to kill her models, and one annoying hippie protester. I'd like a camera that kills hippies. In the meantime, Valentina has dreams about Nazis that strip her naked and whip her. The eyelashes in this movie are fab.
