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