I Want To Ride...
Zac Efron
"I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike, I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like" - Bicycle Race, Queen

See Zac Efron. See him ride his bicycle. See him...fill in your own blank. 

You've heard of Portugal The Man? I hereby decree all shall now refer to Zac Efron as Efron The Man

Check out my boy werking it on a bike during a triathlon in Malibu

Is there anything this guy can't do other than give birth? I think not.

Come to Daddy, Zac.

"I'll Have What She's Having" Jane Fonda

9 to 5 Plastic Surgeons Pick Jane Fonda
l - r
Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton & Jane Fonda 

What a flashback to my Freshman year in High School thrill it was to see the three stars on 9 to 5 - Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton & Jane Fonda reunited at the 2017 Emmy Awards last night!

Oh, those were the days my friend, I'd thought they'd never end...well they really haven't especially for Jane.

Lily always the earth mother looks good for her age, Dolly the bigger than life glamour puss looked very Dolly. Jane on the other hand was a whole different story. At 79 years young she showed up looking like she hadn't even hit puberty. Yet still looked like a wonderfully aged star!

All kidding aside denizens of Hollywood, if you are going to go under the knife, please bend it like Jane. Don't look like a science fiction experiment, or a freakish version of who you once were.

Be like Jane. Look crazy young, and like yourself. Don't distort what the public has liked about you all these years. Nip, tuck and whatever else you have done gracefully, not grotesquely.

Who cares if you have work, everyone in Hollywood does it. All the popular people do it. But you'd better know how to get work, that werks!

In need of a good plastic surgeon? Who you gonna call? Jane Fonda!

Now More Than Ever

File This Under: Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmm...

Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago is the unbelievable true story of the rock band Chicago

Spanning 50 years, from 1967 to the present day, it highlights a band that has sold over 100 million records and has never taken a year off of touring, still playing well over 100 shows a year. 

Detailed are several stories behind their hits and a look at the way they dealt with both ups and downs on their way to becoming the highest-selling band of the 1970s and the second highest selling American band of all time.

Featuring interviews from band members both past and present, as well as those behind-the-scenes, the film shows Chicago as no one has ever seen them before.
As seen and promoted on CNN's January 1, 2017 broadcast

Slow Burn - Michelle Pfeiffer

What A Mother!
Michelle Pfeiffer

Enigmatic actress Michelle Pfeiffer has returned with a cinematic blast in Mother! A film which is an either love it, or hate it proposition (I loved it!) -

Michelle has had an illustrious career with three Academy Award nominations to prove it. One for Supporting Actress in Dangerous Liasons. Two for Best Actress in The Fabulous Baker Boys & Lovefield. Michelle made a total impact in her heyday.

Well that heyday is back!

Her performance in the film is a sly, darkly funny, slow burn. She plays a fabulous game in it. Thus here is what I propose. Since her three co-stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem & Ed Harris have all one Oscars and Pfeiffer has not, let's start a movement for her to finally receive one for Mother!

A Supporting Actress statue bestowed upon Michelle for a performance that to me stole the movie. Don't get me wrong as stated above I loved the whole thing, but Michelle Pfeiffer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michelle Pfeiffer was the foremost thing that I was thinking of when I emerged into the light from the darkened theater.

Dear Paramount, get the buzz for this to happen. Do it and do it now!!!

Michael's Musings

Okey Dokey Doggie Daddy
Michael Shinafelt
While this week has been fairly status quo, it still has had it's moments. Mostly like memories in the corner of my mind, or is that coroner?

Sometimes I think like a car I need a tune up, before next week might be a stellar idea. But there is always right here, right now - bless Jesus Jones and carry on.

AHS: Cult - why is a Lesbian afraid of a clown with a dildo for a nose?

Maggie Murphy was 16, she spent the whole night  on her knees. The more you know.

Let's take a look at a book. The Big Book of British Smiles

There is a story about me out there, it's called "My Busboy"

If your sexy and you know it clap your hands. Damn! mine are really raw at present

The Scorpions song Rock You Like A Hurricane has been on my mind lately...

If you pee in your white snow pants, don't come running to me

Who all is planning on seeing Mother! this weekend, like me? Raise your hands

Serena Williams newborn daughter has a name, it's Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. - say that three time fast

When it comes to ovulating on the catwalk, give IT a name

Speaking of IT, I am loving the desperation TV ad campaign that is coming on the heels of a stellar opening weekend and negative word of mouth

Pardon me, did I hear you say spinach?

Casey has only known booty call love her whole life. Don't be like her, or do, the choice is yours

Daddy needs to get some rest, so submit to him at:

F@ck "IT"

Is That A Helium Balloon? Or Are You Just Excited To See Me?
While the "F" bomb is one of my most favorite frames of reference of all time, so much so I could never tally how much I use it in the course of a day. My favorite usage of it being the term "F@ck it."

This term takes on a whole new meaning this week as you have probably guessed given the byline. Yes, the phrase now refers to the blockbuster $100 million plus grossing movie based on the Stephen King novel IT.

Being a horror fan, I can honestly state this is the least scary film of all time. Seriously, I'm more disturbed by individuals who procure non white paper napkins, for everyday use. I felt like New Line/Warner Brothers marketed the film they wished they had, not the one they ended up with.

Bette Davis Eyes
Honestly I wish I could sue them for baiting and switching, the movie advertised was not what I spent money to see. The trailer was promising, it looked like Pennywise was a dark creature that would get under my skin and infiltrate my psyche, no bueno. 

Even critics were singing it's praises before it opened calling IT frightening. IT garnered an 88% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. I am going out on a limb and saying the ones who loved IT were probably paid off by the studio.

What was IT? A coming of age story with some amazing young actors and a clown who represented their fear of forging through adolescents and becoming adults. Yawn, if I wanted to see that I would view Stand By Me again, another Stephen King adaptation that is way better than this dupe. At least with that one, I wasn't lied to by the studio marketing machine and knew what the movie was about that I was paying to see.

IT's House, In The Middle Of Neibolt Street
The only saving grace for me was I live in Hollywood and got to go to the IT Experience with Robert Krzeski in tow. One of the greatest publicity stunts ever! Yes, Virginia, I got to have live interaction with elements of the movie in Neibolt House, and explore where IT lives.

Translation?! While watching IT and seeing the things I saw inside Neibolt House and my memories of being inside it when the kids entered IT's deadly lair on screen was my only amusement during this marketing scam.

The film was not what I was wanting or, frankly promised by the ad campaign. I'm going to cleanse my palette this weekend with Mother! which I am sure will deliver what it promises.

Pennywise has nothing on me at::
