  Sun. 2/22/09 7:42pm sugarwolf:

Has anyone read David Thomson's The Whole Equation? The part on Joan Crawford's lipgloss was a bit ewwwwwww...
  Sun. 2/22/09 7:44pm CB1:

Have you ever heard Ms Crawford sing "I Never Knew Heaven Could Speak"? Quite the experience.
  Sun. 2/22/09 7:46pm SPUDS:

Monica, Please for the love of all the dribble, KILL YOUR TV, and enlighten us with the Joys of Music. This Klapp Trapp is painful. Music...Music...Music...
  Sun. 2/22/09 7:48pm Parq:

Sorry, the bride just informed me that was Crawford, not Davis. I''m in the kitchen, so I'm not fully hearing the details.
  Sun. 2/22/09 7:49pm CB1:

Hey Spuds,
Lighten up! Give the gal her elbow room.
  Sun. 2/22/09 7:53pm SPUDS:

CB1 I did... I lit another one up...in the haze of dribble I was frantically looking for my Machete. Now that we are all safe I can go back to counting all myPesos in anticipation of the Fun-d Drive.

Kisses, Thanks Monica

  Sun. 2/22/09 7:59pm SPUDS:

Monica, I tried to pass it but not only did Joan Bogart it the crazy lady ate it and told us that if I am patient the Queen will eventually pass it. She states that this is how she raised here warped children and it is the right thing to do.

Please help what should we do about her?
  Sun. 2/22/09 8:03pm sugarwolf:

  Sun. 2/22/09 8:03pm molerat:

Been enjoying the film theme. Funny how "Hooray for Hollywood" is such a cynical song.
  Sun. 2/22/09 8:05pm texas scott:

SPUDS,just don't pass it to Joan again.What were you thinking!!!
  Sun. 2/22/09 8:07pm Joe:

I like how they're applauding their awful treatment of American Indians.

You're right! We're jerks! *clap clap clap*
  Sun. 2/22/09 8:10pm Parq:

Miss Mon, got the clip by any chance of Goldie Hawn announcing Geo. C. Scott winning the best actor for 1971 (or was it 72?), after he had spent months publicly announcing that if he won it, he would not accept it? I remember that Walter Mathau, who'd been up for the same award, then stepped up to present the best-director statuette. Dryly, he remarked "I think I'll try that Geo. C. Scott trick next year."
  Sun. 2/22/09 8:13pm sugarwolf:

  Sun. 2/22/09 8:14pm Jeff M:
