Just Because...Raquel Welch

She Wore An Isty Bitsy Teenie Weenie...
Raquel Welch
Just Because we could all use some escapism at present, Just Because Cave Women are exotic & Just Because it's iconic. Here is Raquel Welch  in a her famous fur bikini still from 1,000,000 Years BC, woot!

It's the outfit Ms. Welch wore with great protest and it is one of the most iconic images to ever come straight outta Hollywood. They really don't make stars like they used to and for some random reason visions of Raquel danced through my head while I was sitting at the computer drinking my morning tea.

Nobody does sexy and glamorous like our Lady Raquel. For the record I have screened 1,000,000 Years BC and might I suggest that taking in this image and leaving it at that as the better option? 

Yeah, I went there...

Enjoy the view and TTFN!

Film Buff Friday: Elvira Mistress Of The Dark

She's back! Elvira, Horrorland's hostess with the mostest, finally busts out on Blu-ray with this long-awaited, positively bursting-at-the-seams special edition of her big screen debut, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark! Having just quit her job as a Los Angeles TV horror hostess, Elvira receives the unexpected news that she's set to inherit part of her great aunt Morgana's estate. Arriving in the small town of Fallwell, Massachusetts to claim her inheritance, Elvira receives a less than enthusiastic reception from the conservative locals - amongst them, her sinister uncle Vincent, who, unbeknownst to Elvira, is in fact an evil warlock secretly scheming to steal the old family spellbook for his own nefarious ends... Campy, quirky and stuffed to the brim with more double entendres than your average Carry On movie, 1988's Elvira: Mistress of the Dark helped solidify the horror hostess (played by Cassandra Peterson) as a major pop culture icon, here owning every inch of the screen with her quick wit, sass, and of course, cleaving-enhancing gown!

Michael's Musings

From A Social Distance
Michael Shinafelt
Well March is finally over THAT was the longest month ever!!! I suspect since we are still on lock down until the end of April, March now has competition.

I, like you minions, can't wait until all this is over, so what have all of you been doing with your time, well here are some of the things I've been doing, texting and thinking...

For reasons only known to them HBO is playing a lot of old movies of late. Sometimes it's great when they play gems like Dangerous Liasons, but most of the time it's, meh

My Social Media game has improved of late, there's that

In today's episode of My Life With The Chill Pill Cult

Alyssa Milano is trending on Twitter at present. It's because she called out Bernie Sanders for putting his ego above the greater good. Wait, don't we already have a President that does that?!

If one is unhappy about the way they are depicted in a documentary, here's a hint - stop being a jerk

Life Hack: If you keep a glass of wine in each hand you can't touch your're welcome!

Kenny Rogers checking out during the apocalypse is the most "know when to fold them" gangsta move I've ever seen

The things I will put up your a$$ if you don't STFU, luckily I have a lot of bananas 

Woman Crush of the Week - Michelle Pfeiffer as Madame de Tourvel in Dangerous Liasons - Beautiful and heartbreaking.

See's Candy has halted production, the line has officially been crossed

Employees at Grocery Stores right now should get combat pay

Helpful Tip - remember Vegans are the closest thing to grass fed. Think about it, but not too much


Currently pizza is an essential food group for me

Hump Day & Chill

In the Age of ‘OK Boomer’, Michael Fairman Releases “Other Side”

You don't have to be a boomer to Hump Day & Chill to these cool beats...

Michael Fairman is after what his name implies: a fair chance.  He is out now with “Other Side,” his mid-tempo pop/soul track about ageism, personal struggles, and finding ones inner-strength to face adversity and ultimately triumph.  He co-wrote the track with engineer and producer, Kyle Mangels, in hopes it might inspire those over 35 into action.  “For years now, I have been told, ‘You’re doing music? You sing? How nice!’ when what was really meant was ‘Good Luck with that boomer, you’re too old for the music industry,’” he explains.  Fairman says he understands that pop radio is targeted to those under 25, skews female, and that there are only a few coveted spots for artists.  Many amazing talents – both younger and older - simply don’t get the airplay they deserve.  He hopes to be the artist to break that barrier, because the music he performs and writes is similar to that being played on pop radio and in dance clubs right now. “I have a point of view and a unique vibe and sound to share, and I hope listeners will give me a chance.”     Michael Fairman’s Other Side” is being distributed independently and is available on Apple MusicSpotify and all major music digital platforms. 

Michael Fairman
It’s a song for all the disenfranchised,” Michael Fairman continues from his Los Angeles home.   He believes “Other Side” is relatable for anyone who has ever felt disconnected, alone, or has broken out of a relationship and is trying to come terms with it.  “It’s a reminder that it is ok to feel down, to cry, to hurt, but eventually we all need to rise up, and fight the fight with whatever life throws our way.”

Michael acknowledges there is still plenty he has his sights set on in life.  A self-professed ‘workaholic’, Michael would like to spend more time cultivating a personal life, but he also has his lifelong dream of performing in-concert in front of thousands of people who are singing his songs.   And why shouldn’t he pursue it?

“We should never listen to people who say something cannot be done because it’s a pipe dream or we’ve missed our chance.  While we’re still breathing, there is hope.  The worst that can happen is it doesn’t lead to where you hoped it might, but at least you gave it that shot and fulfilled that part of yourself.”

Michael Fairman grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where music was always his passion and first love.  As a teen, he released his first recordings through a small label in Chicago.   Once he graduated high school, he moved to Los Angeles and eventually to New York to pursue his career as a recording artist.  He formed a band with some of the top studio musicians in the city, performed in rock, pop, and soul clubs, recorded, and tried to get the A&R reps out to his showcases in order to get signed by a label.  Between the financial drain, and the disappointment of not having key people show up to his gigs, Fairman eventually felt burned out and needed a major change.  He decided to put music on hold and move back to Los Angeles where he began a career in TV Production and entertainment journalism. 

Fairman has no idea where this next attempt at a music career will take him, but it’s something he feels he had to do now or regret forever.

“One of my great musical influences was George Michael and his passing made me realize how short life is and how I was wasting my talent,” he explains.  God gave me a voice, and it is time that I share it and make others aware that this is a part of who I am, at my core.”

Michael Fairman’s Other Side” is being distributed independently and is available on Apple MusicSpotify and all major music digital platforms.  Follow Michael Fairman on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.

Getting To Know: Shannon Hemmings

Shannon Hemmings
In case you missed episode one, when yours truly chatted Actor Jeremiah Hahn up from filmmaker Robert Hensley's current project Family Affair, well we are now on to episode two.

"Yes" another cast member from the film was also in attendance at the grand opening of Silverback Coffee of Rwanda in Echo Park, CA.

Her name is Shannon Hemmings she portrays Charlie, she has a tale to tell...

MS: So spill who do you play in Family Affair?

SH: Well, I play Charlie. I can't say too much about my character. She's there, she's a happy face, a caring character. Let's just say she was really fun to play.

MS: Nice. How do you know Robert?

SH: I moved to Los Angeles only six months ago...

On The Set Of "Nashville"
MS: Where are you from originally?

SH: Atlanta, GA. About two weeks in I was submitting myself for things. I didn't expect anything because they say when you come out here it's hard, it's competitive. So I saw this character and I loved her and I thought "why not" I might as well audition. I was submitted and I was taped, I got the job. I got a little E-Mail, I was like "No Way!" I already booked my first job in LA!

MS: Awesome!

SH: When I went to the table read and got to know who these people were for the first time, it was like "This is really cool." I felt so welcomed in, so excited! It really is who you know and the connections you make, it's a really beautiful thing.

MS: Congratulations! Sometimes it takes forever.

SH: Yeah, thanks! I came here so grounded thinking it would take a whole year to build up my resume, get a manager, what's happened now is mind blowing!

MS: Fantastic! There are so many pitfalls and it's easy to get discouraged.

SH: There were those times where I wondered if it was time to go back home. I wasn't sure if I could do this (laughs) There were time when I felt really alone, it's hard to find community in a brand new place. I'm glad I've stayed strong because everything is really coming together now.

MS: Nice to meet you.

SH: You too! Are you on Instagram?

MS: Yes.

SH: Let's follow each other.

Walking In LA...

The Air That I Breathe
Lucy Hale
How's your quarantine going? Are you keeping your social distance y'all? Well something truly wonderful has happened despite how gnarly this is...the air quality in Los Angeles has been clean for weeks now.

That's correct minions, when go outside for a walk, run or whatever I am truly getting 100% verified fresh air! 😲

In fact it's so great outdoors these days I take really long walks, I'm kind of at loathe to go back indoors. Bare witness to Pretty Little Liars Lucy Hale, that smile on her face after exiting the grocery store isn't for naught. She, like me is vibing on the good clean air. I'm telling you it's real and it's spectacular.

In fact as soon as I exit the lap top I'm gonna go out and snort me some.

Mic Drop!

Film Buff Friday: Sixteen Candles

They don't make em' like this anymore... 

In his debut film as writer-director, John Hughes immediately cemented himself as the king of teen cinema with Sixteen Candles, and in the process also introduced one of the most iconic faces of '80s Americana: Molly Ringwald. For high schooler Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald), her 16th birthday might be the worst day of her life. Her entire family has forgotten about it due to her older sister's impending wedding; her biggest crush, high school hunk Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) has discovered an embarrassing "sex quiz" filled out by Sam in which she details how she is saving herself for him; and to make matters worse, she is hounded by a relentless nerd (Anthony Michael Hall) who won't take no for an answer. But Sam's sweet sixteen isn't over yet, and before the end of the night, all her birthday wishes could still come true... Taking the rude and crude humor of the teen sex comedies that came before it and placing it within the intimately portrayed perspective of a girl's mid-teenage-life crisis, Sixteen Candles is a bombshell of 80s pop culture that continues to be debated and beloved over three decades after its release.

Bonus Materials

  • New restoration by Arrow Films from a 4K scan of the original negative

Michael's Musings

Seeing Red
Michael Shinafelt
Cuomo shows up and it's like “Ooooh, Daddy's here.” Newsome shows up and it's like “Ooooh, likable step-dad is here.”Trump shows up and it's like “Ooooh, racist grandpa took out his dick at the bus stop.” - John Fugelsang

Yeah, I wished I could take credit for this gem, but I acquiesce to comedian John Fugelsang. I follow Mr. Fugelsang on Twitter. Oddly getting my Tweet on has been a quite cathartic outlet for me during these trying times. It's the arena where I get truly politic and where brilliant minds like Fugelsang remind me not everyone is a MAGA Zombie Apocalypse wanna be. Moving on up, down and perpendicular...

Post quarantine will the producers of My 600 Pound Life find me? Or do I need to call them? How does this work???

BTW - how's your quarantine going? I actually took a nap yesterday to stop eating...

Vanderpump Rules is totally dreck this season

In these tough times there we can always count on the Taylor Swift/Kanye West/Kim Kardashian menage. They'll be there for you.

Raspberry Sherbet - that's all

My favorite refrain of late? "Where's the pizza???"

Stop getting creative with hard boiled eggs, I implore you!!!

Just Say: Le Woof

Woman Crush of the Week - Sia because I want to swing from the chandelier, damn it

You put your right foot in, you rock out with your c#ck out. Now THAT's the hokey pokey!!!

Doesn't it feel a lot better?

Fingers crossed Halloween Kills, the follow up to 2018's Halloween doesn't get lost in the shuffle due to the age of Corona. Hey, I have my priorities in tact.

When you are a gay man with the last name of Rimmer (true story)

Hump Day & Chill

Bottoms Up!
Patsy Stone
(Joanna Lumley)
Quarantine, quarantine, quarantine that's all I ever hear, and with good reason. Of course along with this comes the usual plethora of catch phrases. Being as today is all about having a Hump Day & Chill, let's focus on the word Quarantini shall we? We shall!!!

Thus I have chosen the official Quarantini poster imbiber straight outta Absolutely Fabulous, Patsy Stone! Patsy, portrayed by actress Joanna Lumley could drink your Quarantini ass under the table. She could take the "Chill" in Hump Day & Chill to a whole other dimension, that's fer sure.

While I suggest you try to remain in this dimension, might I say enjoy your down time while you can, by partaking in your favorite adult beverage. Hey, it doesn't all have to be Quarantini's and olives. Personally my favorite thing is wine when I kick it. Chardonnay & Cabernet Sauvignon to be specific, and I just was.

Thus I hereby decree that today you Hump Day & Chill like Patsy Stone. That is all, WTF are you waiting for?! Hit the bottle & "Chill!"

Check out some Quarantini recipes here...

"American Nightmare"

Justin Utley

Talk about perfect timing...

“American Nightmare” is Justin Utley’s first single release since his activism work in Utah helped to ban conversion therapy, the discredited practice that aims to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender expression, in the state. “The win was not only cathartic but rewarding and empowering,” he says. Utah is now the 19th state to ban conversion therapy. Utley plans to take his fight to the other 31 states. “I’ll take my guitar wherever I need to in order to keep this conversation going and get this horrific, shame-based sham of therapy banned. It’s unethical, it’s disproven, and yet so many are caught in its web of lies, inevitable failure, and suicide.” He blames the lawmakers who blindly follow their party lines and church leaders instead of the will of the constituents who elected them. It’s one of the reasons he chose to shoot the music video for “American Nightmare” in a church (incidentally, the same church used for the Touched by An Angel series) and includes scenes with crowds in blindfolds, unable and unwilling to see the disasters that lie ahead.

Catch the video after the jump!

Frank Zito (a career performance by writer/executive producer Joe Spinell of ROCKY and THE GODFATHER fame) is a deeply disturbed man, haunted by the traumas of unspeakable childhood abuse. And when these horrific memories begin to scream inside his mind, Frank prowls the seedy streets of New York City to stalk and slaughter innocent young women. Now Frank has begun a relationship with a beautiful photographer (Caroline Munro of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME), yet his vile compulsions remain. These are the atrocities of a human monster.
