Critical Comments and Callus Observations

Urban Cowboy

This weekend I binge watched movies, one of them being Urban Cowboy.  Which is one of my favorite’s movies of all time.  I use to love the entire theme of the movie, but as I grew older and would re-watched several times, I began to realize that…I fucking hate Debra Winger as Sissy.  She’s a fucking idiot, but Bud isn’t far behind either.  They are both stupid, they act like complete children, and let’s face it Madolyn Smith (Pam) would have made a waaayyyy better Sissy than fugly Debra Winger.

Pam Urban Cowboy
So much more beautiful than…Debra Winger.
Sissy Urban Cowboy
WTF, seriously? NOT attractive whatsoever!

She’s smart, beautiful and carries herself as such, okay she had a bit of a devious streak in her.  But I can overlook that because she admitted that she didn’t even love Bud, that’s a plus-plus in my book, she was honest.  Unlike fugly Sissy and her misleading Bud, but in her defense, Bud was a chauvinistic asshole.

Actors In their 50’s Then and Now….

Another of one of my favorite films is Rear Window with James Stewart and Grace Kelly.  This film is an absolute classic.  I’ve watched this movie a million times it seems and this weekend I saw it again and noticed something grotesquely odd.  There is a scene where Jimmy Stewart is getting a message by his nurse/physical therapist (Thelma Ritter, another awesome actress) and he takes his shirt off.  And then…….ewwww, just ewww.  Yes I know how that sound but let me put this in perspective.  This film was made in 1954, which means that James Stewart was only 46 in this movie and he looks 70 years old.

46 years old….looks 70

Compare that with Brad Pitt at 56 in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, looking devastatingly handsome.

56 years old….looks 35

Ripped abs and all, while Jimmy Steward in Rear Window at 46, saggy in every place possible.  Not to mention that although I love this film, James Stewart’s character “Jefferies” treats Grace Kelly’s character like shit, and I think she should have left his bedridden, saggy boobed ass.  I’m not sure why actors and actresses in the 40s and 50s look way older than they seemed in film.  But I’m so glad that today, they don’t because, damn!

New/Old Coworker Fake Debra Messing

I found out that an old coworker, or should I say acquaintance works in the office where I’ll be working soon.  And as promised I knew that soon I’d find something or someone to blog about at my new job.  This person use to work at my old university as well, and she got fired for not complying with the professional dress code.  She use to work in the office of Scholarship Programs, with another VP.  She was the admin assistant and she was the first person people saw when they walked into the office.  She dresses (yes still) like an old beat up wannabe gangster chick.  She has NO fashion sense whatsoever, and yet she manages to get jobs with high profile administrators and I don’t know why?  She thinks she’s still 30 years old, and can pull off wearing leather pants and animal print tops (in the office no less) and has never, ever cut her air (remind you of anyone?)   She has this one length, fake red hair all the way past her fat ass.  AND I know she’s a goddamned brunette but she insists on coloring her hair an awful, reddish brown.  I don’t even know what actual color it is, all I know is she looks ridiculous, she always has.

Gross Red Hair meme

Oh did I forget to mention she rides her Harley Davidson to work?  So, she looks like a fake red hair, leather pant, zebra print blouse, bandanna, hooker platform shoe wearing idiot.  Yes I know it sounds like I’m bashing on someone but don’t forget I worked with this person before, and she is not in any way professional (like Baby Kermit) but I know that she doesn’t have any bad/annoying habits like Kermit and her fucking loud gerping.  Other than the fact that she talks like an over the hill Chola.

But I can overlook that, if she leaves me alone.  I’m going to christen her, Fake Debra Messing because I HATE Debra Messing, she’s so unbelievably annoying in EVERYTHING she does.

Grace meme
That’s because you are a loser….ugh!

And she’s the only annoying redhead I can think of other than Carrot Top.  So, you see I haven’t even started my new job yet and I’ve already christened my first coworker with her blog name.  I’ll keep you posted.

This is the Huntress, over and out!

My life has been a lot like the movie Bridget Jones Diary (the Hispanic version) constant comedic struggles and life lessons learned by way of personal experience. I've survived divorce and online dating debacles, so tag along for the ride and lets laugh together.

  1. We watch Rear Window quite regularly here because the husband loves to watch movies he’s already seen 407 times. Can’t say I loved Urban Cowboy, then or now.
    And while part of me cringes on your behalf for another crazy co-worker… the blog part of me says, bring it!
    😈

  2. YES! I don’t like Debra Messing either. The (slightly) dickish part of me is already rejoicing over a new nicknamed co-worker to provide us with entertainment. Should I feel guilty? Yes. Do I? Not even a little bit.

  3. I can’t wait to hear more about your new co-workers! It’s funny; I remember you talking about the woman who dresses like she’s young and hot. I can’t believe you’ll have to see her on occasion at your new job! Good grief. You’re right about the classic movie actors and actresses. They are much different NOW vs. then. I prefer now. But I love some of the older movies! 😉

    1. Believe it or not, it’s NOT the same person, lol. That other woman I was talking about was a director I worked for at the other university. This woman is a coordinator who I worked with over there too but in a different department. Can you believe I know TWO women like that? What are the fucking odds?!?! lol

  4. The first time I saw Rear Window was in a film studies class. That scene where Jimmy Stewart is shirtless made everyone in the room groan and shift uncomfortably. I get that the guy had been badly injured and was more or less bedridden, but, seriously, yeah, lift some weights or something, Jimmy. When people talk about how tough they were in the old days I think about how a sprained ankle used to mean six weeks of convalescence.
    And your new coworker makes me think of Abby from NCIS. Not that there’s any resemblance. Really that’s the point. Abby gets away with the whole goth/emo thing because she’s super-professional. How Fake Deborah Messing gets away with it is beyond me.

  5. I’ve only seen Rear Window a couple of times, but now I will never NOT think about those man-boobs. It always ticks me off that there’s such a double standard for men and women. Could you imagine if Grace Kelly had a tummy or gray hair?!
