Just Not Inspired...

I feel like crap, and I don't have time to put up a substantive post, so I'm going to fall back on that "post a video" gambit... at the mothership, mention of Mr French was made, which led a certain bastard to post a video by Angel and the Reruns, who were supposedly America's best loved all female/all ex-con band (sigh, I never knew it was a put-on). Back in my big blond afro days, the band's tribute to the short life and sordid death of TV's Anissa Jones was actually played on the radi-adi-o:





And now, for something completely different those of you who want some of that sexy "Mr French" magic, here's the man himself:

O.K. I must admit that that dramatic reading of Bob Dylan reminded me so much of the reading of Dr. Seuss's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" that I had to interrupt it. Rude, I know, but sometimes I just can't whip up the appropriate gravitas. Know what I mean?

That girl's band reminded me of Cher on "the Sonny and Cher" show introducing an all girl band with the caveat that they weren't very "feminine" as if Cher weren't a professional vamp. I thought at the time that the network forced her into it, because she didn't seem very sincere when she said it. I was 14 at the time, so it was '75 and I'm thinking it might have been very early Joan Jett. Or not. I dunno. But I really liked them and loved it that they were rough and tumble--- like me--- a ridiculously heterosexual tomboy.

Awww. You're still feeling crappy? :(
I think that I turned a corner today and am on the mend-thankfully. (hopefully).

I had one of those Mrs. Beasley dolls shown in the girl band video. I'm not sure whatever happened to her. I saw one, still in the box in an antique shop last summer. It was quite a bit of money, I can't remember how much though.
I did want to buy it. :)

((Hugs))-hope you feel better soon.

Are you trying to tell us something about that ODing song, B^4? Are you addicted to Neti-potting? BE HONEST.

I'll bet it was The Runaways... a teenaged Joan Jett, Cherie Currie, and Lita Ford.

I hope she didn't O.D.

Or, if you are in a Dom/Sub relationship with him on top, MASTER French.

Hang in there, B^4!

Still feel like crap, but I went to a great Indian restaurant and ate a mess of curries at their lunch buffet. Eating a lot of hot Indian food tends to help.

Hey, better to be a pot-head than a snot-head!

I would just like everyone to know that B^4 is not just a user, he's a dealer.

Sometimes my pseudo-thai'll clear out your sinuses if I put enough Sambal Oelek in it.

I have a 2lb 3oz container of red curry paste "just in case". I need to re-up my sriracha supply, though.

Memo to me... Stay away from Big B's washroom for the next day or two. ;D
