Life Hack, Lady Gaga

When In Doubt, Gaga It Out!
Lady Gaga

I have been battling what I think are allergies for the past few days, but could indeed be a cold, I can't quite get a handle on it. Last night was the best nights sleep I have had in a week. I woke up feeling refreshed and then as if on cue the coughing started it and was relentless. It is starting to wane now, we shall see where it all lands.

Which brings me to this image of Lady Gaga performing at Coachella, as you can tell I am a fan of Lady G and this capture is great. It's colorful, exciting and gave me something to focus on during one of my hacking fits this morning. They should package her as cough syrup she made tossing up a lung a more pleasant experience. 

So if you ever need relief from a cough and have nothing available, I give you this life hack tip: focus on Lady Gaga. The more you know...!

The Blood Of Unicorns

Katy Perry
Apparently Katy Perry is a certified Unicorn. You heard me correctly, Katy like many, except myself, was eager to try Starbuck's Unicorn Frappuccino. Well that happiness quickly turned to disgust as she snapped an Instagram photo of herself spitting out the less than delightful concoction with this caption:

"I couldn't handle drinking my own blood" 

She then sprouted four legs and a horn in the center of her head and gored the staff at Starbuck's in a rage that could only come from a pissed off Unicorn cannibalizing one of their own. OK, kidding on that one. 

This brew has been so publicly reviled why does anyone still have curiosity in actually trying it?! Just looking at it makes me want the hurl!

Now aren't you happy?

Sunday Schwing! Luke Perry

Luke Perry
Before He Gets Naked
On Oz
I recently saw a re-run of Law & Order: SVU featuring Luke Perry portraying a rapist. A far cry from his teen heartthrob days as bad boy Dylan McKay on Aaron Spelling's Beverly Hills 90210.

This got me thinking about other adult roles Perry has essayed post playing every teenage girl (and some boys) favorite rouge. Well none of them are as adult as the time he played the Reverend Jeremiah Cloutier on HBO's prison drama OZ.

One of the thing OZ is known for is lots of male frontal nudity. Yes I am talking penis here. Most notorious of the actors baring  all was Law & Order: SVU alum Christopher Meloni. Not one to disappoint Perry too showed his family jewels to the delight of his legions of fans.

Thus you guessed what I did next, can't you? "Yes" I paid a visit to Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things to see if he had posted Luke exposed on the show. Butt (pun intended) of course he did, you can click on the link below and check him out. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

Now quite reading and start Schwinging!

Star Lord Gets A "Star"

Star Lord, Has A Star & So Does
Chris Pratt
Just in time to help hype the upcoming release of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Chris Pratt aka Star Lord, gets his star on Hollywood's Walk Of Fame.

Yes, the man from the stars, who is a Lord portrayed by Pratt in the Marvel films now has been immortalized as a star on a sidewalk in Hollywood so you can walk all over him with your boots, or whatever your footwear of choice is.

Alright enough of my irreverence, the lovable Chris had this to say to his wife Anna Faris at his star ceremony: “I want to thank my wife Anna, I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy, I love him and I love you.”

Awwwwwwwwww...now you know what to get me for my Birthday, a Chris Pratt type of guy.

Happy Earth Day!

Film Buff Friday: The Climber

Joe Dallesandro beyond Andy Warhol's Factory...

THE CLIMBER [Blu-ray + DVD] (May 16th)

After shooting cult favorites Flesh for Frankenstein and Blood for Dracula in Europe, Joe Dallesandro spent much of the seventies making movies on the continent. In France, he worked with auteurs like Louis Malle and Walerian Borowczyk, and in Italy he starred in all manner of genre fare from poliziotteschi (Savage ThreeSeason for Assassins) to nunsploitation (Killer Nun). 

The Climber follows in the tradition of gangster classics such as The Public Enemy and Scarface as it charts the rise and inevitable fall of small-time smuggler Aldo (Dallesandro). Beaten and abandoned by the local gang boss after he tries to skim off some profits for himself, Aldo forms his own group of misfits in order to exact revenge... 

Written and directed by Pasquale Squitieri (Gang War in NaplesI Am the Law), The Climber is a prime example of Italian crime cinema - a high-octane action-thriller full of brawls, fistfights, shootouts and explosions!

- Brand new 4K restoration of the film from the original negative
- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations
- Original Italian soundtrack in uncompressed PCM mono with optional newly-translated English subtitles
- Alternative English-language soundtrack with optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
Little Joe's Adventures in Europe, a brand-new interview with Joe Dallesandro on his numerous European film appearances during the 1970s and early 1980s
- Reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned artwork by Chris Malbon
FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Booklet featuring new writing on the film by Roberto Curti, author of Italian Crime Filmography, 1968-1980

Michael's Musings

Rebel Yell
Michael Shinafelt
In the Reality TV era of which I am a complicit participant, there are many things to consider. One of them should not be the dumbing down of people's minds. Translation: we should get what it's all about and not make it our reality.

Alas that is not true, witness the current state of affairs and who got elected POTUS and why.

Personally I can differentiate the "reality" of media from the realness of life, too bad most people can't. Shall we proceed? 

What a kick Melania Trump had to nudge The Orange Butt Plug of the US to put his hand on his heart during the Pledge Of Allegiance. If she doesn't have her Green Card already, hand her one for this.

Remember there are always going to be Weebles on the rag

Pinata Back Pack!

I fucking love Snapped on the Oxygen Network!

The press has announed that Fleetwood Mac tickets are going to be $800 on their upcoming tour. I love them, but not that much. (luckily I have seen them when ticket prices weren't a mortgage) 

Cheap airfare tip - United Airlines
Andy Cohen, Eileen Davidson & Bunny
Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion part deux - aka bitch better have my bunny!

Pretty Little Liars returned with a vengeance. If you don't like it, well bite me, I do.

Hugs & Kisses to my friend Jackie Kilmer

Roach free water, delightful 

Dildos, instead of rubber bands will be used in spin class today. Not really. One can dream, can't one???

When you wish upon a star, it's worth a try...

Always remember when you annoy someone in an anonymous sort of way, Satan will take care of that.

I'm Hellbent for leather, does that frighten you?

I'm as real as it gets at:
