Just Because...They're Pretty

Gerber Babies
Kaia & Presley Gerber
Just Because their Mom is Cindy Crawford, Just Because Cindy's daughter is her doppelganger & Just Because they are both so pretty - Look it's Kaia & Presley Gerber!

Yes, it the offspring of Cindy Crawford & Randy Gerber, I am guessing they get their looks from good ole Supermodel mom. Kaia does fer sure as she is the mirror image of Cindy. Presley resembles a prettier version of his father, who is no slouch in the looks department either.

Some kids have all the luck, being born into money, opportunity not to mention being lookers and such.

I felt like posting this when I saw it today to give you and myself things of beauty since there is so much in the world that can drag you down if you let it. 

My mandate to everyone the final day of September 2017? Be your own thing of beauty, everyone has it in them.

That's a wrap!

Film Buff Friday: Blood Feast

Nom, Nom, Nom, Nom...

The notorious HGL's masterpiece of gore just in time for Halloween...Boo!

Blood Feast [Dual Format] (10/10)

The filmography of late movie maverick Herschell Gordon Lewis brims with the mad, macabre, and just downright bizarre. But perhaps the most unhinged of all his directorial efforts, and certainly the most influential, must surely be his original gore-fest Blood Feast - the first ever splatter movie.

Dorothy Fremont is looking to throw a party unlike any other, and she gets just that when she hires the decidedly sinister Fuad Ramses to cater the event. Promising to provide her guests with an authentic Egyptian feast, Ramses promptly sets about acquiring the necessary ingredients - the body parts of nubile young women! 

Featuring a host of stomach-churning gore gags including the infamous tongue sequence and much more nastiness besides, Herschell Gordon Lewis' Blood Feast more than lives up to its name and remains essential viewing for any self-respecting splatter fan.

Features
- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard DVD presentations
- English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
Scum of the Earth - Herschelll Gordon Lewis' 1963 feature
Blood Perspectives - Filmmakers Nicholas McCarthy and Rodney Ascher on Blood Feast
Herschell's History - Archival interview in which director Herschell Gordon Lewis discusses his entry into the film industry
How Herschell Found his Niche - A new interview with Lewis discussing his early work

Michael's Musings

Come Closer, It Doesn't Smell
Michael Shinafelt
"I wish I was like you...Easily amused" - All Apologies, Nirvana 

It takes a lot to amuse me in the world of entertainment. In life not so much there are so many amusing and amazing people, places & things to engage in the world around us. While I am not one of those overly perky people I am certainly not a pessimist either. I would clarify myself as a realist. 

Life is a series of moments and how you experience them is up to you....time to throw me in the shallow water before I get too deep!

Let's all put on a folk hat and learn something about a foreign culture

Khloe Kardashian & Kylie Jenner are both pregnant. Smells like ratings spirit

Did you know you can purchase Vampire Repellent from Gwyneth Paltrow's life style brand Goop? It's supposed to ward off "Emotional Vampires" - I can save you $100, cut them out of your life. Yeah, it's that simple.

R.I.P. Hugh Hefner you were a true original

Started up yoga again my arms and back are SAF! But it's worth it!

Turns out Tyra Banks is good for something. Whilst trying to treat my dry skin issue I remembered some celebrity had once said they use Vaseline on their face. It works, and the celeb was Tyra.

Vulgarity is an important ingredient of life. F#ck you if you disagree!


Send In The Insane Clown Posse
American Horror Story
No matter what I think about it this season of American Horror Story is certainly the most audacious! 

When someone asks you why the response should always be: Because I can

AT&T needs me to spank them, hard!

What's on my mind? You, you are always on my mind


No one needs squad goals - are you listening Taylor Swift???

Just Because...Madonna

Got MDNA?
Madonna
Just Because she is the The Woman in Red, Just Because she launched new line of skin care & Just Because, Bitch she's Madonna - here is her Madgesty at Barney's in NYC to launch her new MDNA Skin Care line.

Yes, boys & girls it's finally here, Madonna's skin pampering must haves have hit the shelves and she was on hand looking smashing in red to launch that puppy.

My Instagram feed has been jammed with her and a commercial she did with that guy affectionately known as The Fat Jew

During the course of the ad Madonna compliments The Fat Jew telling him he has good skin. He in turn tells her, that her face is really symmetrical. A symmetrical face, eh? Yes, it is, and no one comes by that naturally, it's a lot of work.

Whatever! The Queen of Pop looks fabulous with her product smeared on her face. Also I think she should stick with the red, Just Because, red does a Madonna good.

Happy "Hump Day!"

Shave & A Haircut 100

Will You Accept This Rose?
Nick Heyward
Photo: Steve Ullathorne
Hey, Hey, Hey...It's Nick Heyward!
When you have the comfort of working on your ninth album without the rush to meet a deadline, you really want to take your time, especially if it’s your first solo outing in 18 years. For singer songwriter Nick Heyward Woodland Echoes, his forthcoming album out November 3 on Red River/BFE Entertainment, served as a reminder of things he is grateful for. “I’m glad I’m alive, I’m glad that I’m writing and putting records out.”  His appreciation for making music is reflected on all 12 tracks on this breezy, smart pop gem.
Nick has been putting out great pop songs since his band, Haircut One Hundred, blasted on to the scene in the early 80s earning four UK Top Ten and two US Top 40 singles with “Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl),” “Love Plus One,” “Nobody’s Fool” and  “Fantastic Day” from their debut album, Pelican WestWhile enjoying the early days of success, differences in style and direction led Heyward to leave his post as front man and lyricist to begin his solo career.
An artist who has always been well received by both critics and fans, Heyward released three solo albums in the 80s, three in the 90s (including a 1998 release on Creation Records at the behest of Alan McGee) and two 2 collaborations in the aughts.  A 2013 announcement of new music was met with eager anticipation, but supporters would have to wait until 2015 for a preview of what would become the music on Woodland Echoes
Recorded at his son Oliver’s studio, on a houseboat in Key West, and Zak Starkey’s Salo Sound studio deep in the UK countryside, Nick deliberated over the music until he felt it was ready. “At first, I wanted it finished straight away.” he says. “But then, ‘that’ll do’ became impossible for me; in fact, it was the opposite – as soon as someone said something would do, I knew it wouldn’t!”
It’s that precise attitude that makes Heyward’s music so special. This album, like all of his work, is made with the same passion, introspection and grace found in all of his music. An avowed lover of nature and the outdoors, you can hear that influence in all the tracks, particularly “Beautiful Morning.” “Love is the Key By the Sea,” which opens the album, is a bold and harmonious love song, and the jazzy snap-your-finger fun of “Who” is most certainly a tip of that hat to Mr. Paul McCartney. “Baby Blue Sky” is a rapturous beach song with a dash of Oasis thrown in to the mix, and lead single “Perfect Sunday Sun” is the most perfect 70s era pop song.Heyward, who has always been singled out as a strong and thoughtful lyricist, continues his streak of songwriting success on Woodland Echoes, which feels warm and intimate.
All things being equal though, the Nick Heyward of 2017 isn’t the same person as the Nick Heyward of 1982. “You have to find peace and love; it’s a process – my early songs were always bittersweet – the verse would be going through the struggle, but then it would be ‘it’s a fantastic day’; but there was always that struggle. On this album, that struggle is gone. The songs on Woodland Echoes are reflective of the past 10 years.”
It’s a treat to have Nick Heyward back making premium pop music. In 1985, Nick told Smash Hits magazine that “I want to make the kind of LP you can wrap up and give to someone as a present. No duff tracks at all, just 12 shining wonderful singles, I suppose.” In 2017, with Woodland Echoes, he has finally achieved his goal. 
Check out Nick performing some of the new "Woodland Echoes"  tunes as well as some classic Haircut One Hundred music here: https://vintage.tv/episodes/nick-heyward-live-at-the-water-rats-2/

Royals

Intriguing
Meghan Markle 
"And we'll never be royals, It don't run in our blood, That kind of lux just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz" - Lorde 

While I have never really been into the whole Royal Family thing with the exception of Princess Diana, I do have a passing interest in Meghan Markle.

The thing I think that intrigues me about her is, she is an actress dating Prince Harry. Actresses' aren't the usual cup of tea for Royals, that's for sure.

She is also racially mixed. Which is way atypical for a Royal to be courting. She said this about it: "My dad is Caucasian and my mom is African-American ... I have come to embrace [this and] say who I am, to share where I'm from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident, mixed-race woman."

You go Meghan! The photo of her was taken recently at the Invictus Games in Toronto where not coincidentally Prince Harry was attending too.

I wish you two the best! Happy last Monday of September!!!

Only he and Palin know the whereabouts of the diamonds, prompting plenty of farce and in-fighting as well as some embarrassing nudity and the unfortunate demise of some innocent pooches...

Just Because...Supermodels

Smile & Say Versace!
l-r
Claudia Schiffer, Donatella Versace, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen 

Just Because it's nostalgic, Just Because they all still look amazing & Just Because they are legends - Here are the four of the biggest Supermodels ever: Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford & Helena Christensen with designer Donatella Versace.

What brought the four women together you may ask? They were at Milan Fashion Week to strut on the catwalk for, what else? Versace, I am sure Donatella's presence must have tipped you off to that one, if it didn't...

Rumor has it these four stole the show. But of course they did sweetie darling. They were from an era when being a Supermodel was like being a Movie Star, and emanating the like qualities of one.

Not like modeling is today. What's that? You want me to go there? I'm not in the mood to write a dissertation about that nor do I care enough to do so. This being stated I am sure you can fill in the blank without me telling you what's going through my mind.

Anyway, this image is one for the Entertain Me books.

You'd better werk!

Michael's Musings

Macho Bear
Michael Shinafelt
Do you remember the days of September? Why actually I remember them quite well...and today was one of the lovelier ones. After I clocked in the to my daily work routine and took some meetings. I then came home, ate lunch caught up on American Horror Story: Cult while devouring a delish shrimp salad I made.

Then off to West Hollywood to meet up with my talented buddy Jay Jacobson @ Marix. What was verbally exchanged? Perhaps you will find out, or not. Read on minions...

Jay Jacobson is hard at work on his upcoming CD Travelogue - a margarita told me so

Are you watching Growing Up Supermodel? If you are you now know what Ricky Schroeder would look like transgender

It's not OK to rub boogers on your sister, would you want boogers rubbed on you?!?!

Nicole Kidman complained on The Emmy's that there are few good roles for women in Hollywood. That's partly because she takes them all.

There is a shortage of Latino foreskin happening

Deborah Gibson should duet with Yolanda Foster on a f/u to Shake Your Love called Shake Your Lyme


It's all about the bears, of which I am one, at MisterH.shop who featured me on their site. My personal favorite item from them? The unicorn bear T-Shirt. Get one at:

Hump Day & Chill: Justin Hartley

Spread Em'!
Justin Hartley
Did you know there's a sequel to Bad Moms coming soon? What's that you say, tell you more? It's called A Bad Moms Christmas and it looks very, shall we say Schwing worthy.

Believe me, when you get a load (and you will) of the scene and images of one Justin Hartley naked on his back with his legs spread for Kathryn Hahn's perusal you will Schwing along, like I did, trust.

Justin first caught my eye on the guilty pleasure TV series Revenge where he played Madeline Stowe's aka Victoria Grasyon,  hunky illegitimate son Patrick Osbourne. He even had a same sex kiss Nolan Ross played by Gabriel Mann. This earns him a place in the Schwing Hall of Fame.

So, after catching my eye I was giddy to get an eyeful of Justin in A Bad Moms Christmas via Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things. Yep Christmas came a little early this year in the form of Justin Hartley.

It's time to Hump Day & Chill with Justin by clicking on the NSFW link below -

"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!

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

F@ck "IT"

Is That A Helium Balloon? Or Are You Just Excited To See Me?
Pennywise
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::
