Hello Dalai!

Two Legends at One Time
Being a huge fan of rock legend Patti Smith I could not pass up posting this photo of her and the Dalai Lama on stage at the Glastonbury Festival in England.

It's rare to see Patti in the news so this was cause for celebration!

All hail the high priestess of punk!

Show Patti some worship at:

Available on EST Digital Platforms on August 18th
and on DVD and VOD on September 1st
via Virgil Films

Get your Rhinestone Cowboy on!

Virgil Films announces the VOD and DVD release of Glen Campbell... I'll Be Me, a new documentary film about the country/pop superstar produced and directed by filmmakerJames Keach (Walk the Line). The film, which will air on CNN on June 28, will be available on digital platforms (EST) on August 18th followed by a DVD and VOD release on September 1st.

Glen Campbell... I'll Be Me was directed by James Keach (producer of Walk the Line) and produced by Trevor Albert(producer of Groundhog Day) and KeachKeach and Albertalso collaborated on the award winning film, Waiting for Forever.Bruc

"The making of this film has been an exhilarating, joyous and inspiring ride. I attribute that entirely to the heroic spirit of Glen Campbell and his extraordinary family," said producer Trevor Albert.

In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America. They thought it would last 5 weeks, instead it went for 151 spectacular sold out shows over a triumphant year and a half across America.

What made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He was told to hang up his guitar and prepare for the inevitable. Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a "Goodbye Tour."

The film documents this amazing journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen's progressing disease using love, laughter and music as their medicine of choice. Special appearances include Bruce Springsteen, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Steve Martin, Chad Smith 

and Bill Clinton among many others.

"We are honored to bring this portrait of Glen Campbell to American audiences," said said Joe Amodei of Virgil Films. "This great entertainer and his indelible music have been a part of so many lives for decades, we look forward to reminding everyone of what's so special about him."

Keach added "the legacy Glen Campbell and his incredibly courageous family share in this film is one of the most important movies I have been blessed to have worked on. Glen Campbell.. I'll Be Me will forever inspire me as a filmmaker and a man. Glen is a real life hero on and off the stage."

Andie MacDowell Gets XXL

Andie MacDowell Feels Up Matt Bomer
Oh My!
Since the Supreme Court has declared Marriage Equality in all fifty nifty United States. I thought to myself, let's celebrate the love by posting this image of the eternally beautiful Andie MacDowell getting hands on familiar with a life size poster of her openly gay co-star Matt Bomer at the Magic Mike XXL premiere in Hollywood.

Hey nothing says equality like a straight woman copping a feel off a gay man in my opinion. It's safe and no one gets hurt.

Have a terrific weekend!

What Would Clea Cutthroat Do?

Your Mistress of the Night: Clea Cutthroat 
Have you ever found yourself sitting in your Berlin pad with nothing to do on a Saturday night and suddenly you wonder: What would Clea Cutthroat do?

Well on Saturday July 18th you know exactly what she will be doing and you can join her too!

She will be your Mistress of Ceremonies for the WC Party at The Chelsea Bar in Berlin, Germany starting at 10pm Saturday July 18th. With two floors of sleaze baby!

Heaven is for everybody, Hell is for the guys only. Got it?!

So I asked Mistress Clea to give you ten good fucking reasons you should cum and taste the rainbow at the WC Party! Read on my minions...

1. HEAVENLY CREATURES! It’s true! We’re providing you the gateway to HEAVEN! However, heaven ain’t some fabled world of clouds, gods, & baby angels….we found our heaven, and let me tell ya, it’s delightful! Drag queens, bears, lipstick lesbians, leather daddies, boyz, bisexual & talented bartenders, Half naked hot boys, strippers, DJs, art installations…and liquor.
2. SIN IS IN! Yup! Ya know, as the saying goes…I got a sweet little fluffly unicorn sitting on one shoulder, and a dominatrix leather-clad-vixen sitting on the other. What can I say? I enjoy duality in everything. Plus, what’s the fun of being good, if you can’t get dirty sometimes?
3. HELL HERE! We will provide the enchantment, and we’ll even provide all the temptation for you in HELL! (Gentlemen only) It’s run by this real bitch of a Drag Queen called Satan…she’s a real pain in my ass, but throws one hell of a party.
4. 007! WE HAVE SECRETS! It’s true, we’re mysterious and we wanna seduce ya with awesomeness. I could tell you more, but then I would have to kill you …and we’d rather kiss you, or at least throw some glitter on ya!
5. NO FLAMINGO IS SAFE! It’s true…we got this weird thing with flamingos…just ask John Waters.
6. SHE BOP! Heaven & Hell got one thing in common: MUSIC! We will make sure that those apple bottoms don’t stop clapping all night long.
7. SOFT LIGHTING! Now, you all know what I’m talking about. We’ll make sure that your face it lit properly…and if you need any help keeping your contour on point, our performers will be there all night ready with brushes to beat your face with
8. LIQUID EYELINER! We have amazing performers! This Month we have Raven, The Dark Prince of Boylesque from Australia! He’s such an incredible performer and we’re honored to have him. I’ll also be performing…can’t let the night go by without a little chaos and punk rock realness from yours truly
9. IT’S FUN! (translation: we have lots AND LOTS of alcohol!)
10. WE LOVE YOU! Parties are great, and we know that there are tons to choose from, but we wanted to make a party that WE wanted to go to! So, we painted the biggest picture, and we want WC to take away your inhibitions, forget your stress, and blow your mind.

Teach! Dolly Parton

Teachers Rule! Dolly Parton & Dyane Smokorowski

Dolly Parton Presents A Kansas Teacher
With The 2015 Chasing Rainbows Award


Doer of good deeds, Dolly Parton to the rescue!

Dyane Smokorowski was named the 14th recipient of the Chasing Rainbows Award. She enjoyed a weekend trip to Dollywood where Dolly herself presented Dyane with the award. Each year, the National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) honors one outstanding educator with this prestigious award. The honoree is someone who “has overcome great obstacles in his or her life, has captured the rainbow and is helping children.” This year’s winner serves as the Instructional Technology Coach for Andover Public Schools in Andover, KS.

Smokorowski said, “It is difficult to admit that my personal struggles actually prepared me to be a stronger person today. I wanted to be someone who could inspire others to reach beyond their environments, beyond their extremities, and to do as I have always done—to dream big!”

In 2002, Dolly became the first to receive this award from the NNSTOY. The award celebrated her commitment to fostering a love of reading among children through her Imagination Library. Since then, Dolly has presented the award each year.

Dyane Smokorowski's name will be added, along with past recipients, to the award displayed in the Chasing Rainbows Museum at Dollywood.

For more information on the award and how to nominate an outstanding teacher, visit the NNSTOY website.

R.I.P: Dick Van Patten

R.I.P: Dick Van Patten
8 is Enough was my seminal family show that I grew up with. The Brady Bunch was in reruns by the time I could actually watch TV.

Dick Van Patten was the best TV Dad ever! Sorry Mike Brady.

You will always be one of my fondest memories growing up.

I salute you sir with grace, gratitude and my first introduction to Betty Buckley.
