The Reagan Diaries...This post in from cub reporter and Sander Gretchen Sorensen in Seattle

"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his n'er-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida; the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."

From the REAGAN DIARIES------entry dated May 17, 1986.

The B-52s...Funplex (Astralwerks)

Despite being well into their 50s, the B-52s seem more sexually charged than ever, said Jessica Letkemann in Billboard. On their first album in 16 years, their humble little "Love Shack" has morphed into a mall-like Funplex." It's been three decades since "Rock Lobster," but these pleasure-seeking party animals sound as if they've never left the dance floor---or the bedroom. The kitschy qurtet has always approached sex and songwriting with wild abandon. Here, every song is fixated with getting it on: "Sex is dancing! ('Pump.') Sex is a road trip! ('Ultraviolet.') Sex is a cocktail party! ('Deviant Ingredient.')." This dirty talk mioght come across as pervy from anyone else, but it works for the B-52s, said Andy Gill in the London Independent. With their campy, cartoonish quality, the B-52s are a "three-dimensional realization of a two-dimensional ideal."
Since they've never worried about keeping up with the times, they've never actually fallen "out of fashion." They just want to "Keep This Party Going," said Christine Van Dusen in Paste. Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson still have the same cheerleader pep, and only Fred Schneider could shout such nonsense as "Do a white-hot shimmy in a Lurex gown!" So why not just "shut up and dance?"

Good-bye Charlton Heston...April 6 2008

Ruby Montana and Mimi Weddell 93 Year old Star and Model

Mimi Weddell is a New York-based actress and model.
She's also the focus of "Hats Off," a feature length documentary profiling the prolific performer-who happens to be 93.
Weddell didn't begin acting full time until she was 65, following the death of her husband, Dick. "I suddenly decided that I wanted to go a different route, not just having ordinary jobs and things like that," she says.
For "Hats Off" which opened in March, director, Jyll Johnston spent 10 years capturing Weddells's life on film. A true New Yorker, Weddell takes the bus or burns old fashioned shoe leather to her weekly Pilates and dance workouts, cattle-call auditions and photo shoots.
And the dignified dame never steps out of her East Side apartment without her signature cigarette holder and hat.
