Apr 30th 2011 11:28PM I thought this was supposed to be about Oprah's new hair style?! Not many of you even brought that up! Everyone is always so quick to insult & vilify her, & jump at any chance to try to make her look bad! All of you haters with "sour grapes" dripping out of your mouths make me sick! Now, about Oprah's hair, here's my opinion; the 'Bob' is flattering, from the side view, but looking straight on, I don't like it as well as some of her other looks. My all-time favorite (& it always will be) the long, curly look. I know it must take Andre [her long-time stylist] quite some time to roll it, comb & brush it out, to perfection, etc. but "Oh, Baby!" When he does -- that is the *best look* she has ever had! No one, black or white, can hold a candle to her then! It shows off her face & body like no other look ever did, or ever will! Now, with this 'Bob' she's just going to look like so many others, nothing that 'spectacular'! But those long flowing, shiny curls were so unique for her! Oprah "OWNED" that style! That's my opinion & I'm stickin' to it! But, you know, as always; "It's what's inside that counts the most" ~ & our 'Inner Oprah' is something to behold ~ they don't come any better than that! The *core* of that li'l girl from Mississippi, with the tight little braids, & that cute, innocent face staring at the camera all those years ago, hasn't changed all that much (as in this scene from the 'Wizard of Oz'):
~ Dorothy: "Oh, will you help me? Can you help me?
Glinda (The Good Witch): You don't need to be helped any longer. You've always had the power to go back to Kansas.
Dorothy: I have?
Scarecrow: Then why didn't you tell her before?
Glinda: Because she wouldn't have believed me. She had to learn it for herself!" ~
And our "Li'l Oprah" has always had the *Power* ~ she just had to grow up & *learn it for herself*! (And, boy, did she ever)!!! ;-D
Apr 29th 2011 9:49AM Uh-hh....it didn't work! You (and most of the rest of the haters on this page) are rude, crude and full of envy & loathing -- about as UN-Civil as you could get! What a stark contrast to all of those proud, gracious Brits that gathered by multiple thousands to honor their heir to the throne & his beautiful young bride, during their flawlessly happy wedding day!!!! This day will go down in history, & will be such a "shot in the economic arm" for the country that it will eventually be worth much more to them than it "cost" the monarchy! The tourist trade for this week alone will be worth much more than the wedding day "tab"....and the long term effect will be just as valuable too. But you won't understand all that, so just go back to your couch & beer & maybe you can find an old rerun of "The Dukes Of Hazzard" on TV to watch (that's the only "Duke" you'll ever "get")!!! Leave the new "Duke and Duchess of Cambridge" to the rest of us!
Feb 28th 2011 10:13PM OMG! Oh, for the good old days when veterans like Bob Hope and Johnny Carson, Jack Benny, David Niven, and then later on, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Martin, and Jon Stewart, et al, hosted the Academy Awards! Some people with a quick wit and charm, who could ad lib in a millisecond, if need be; & has the 'chops' to carry a 3-hour show while making it look easy, & funny, & never boring! Franco was too distracted, & lazy and seemed like he would have rather been anyplace but there, & I sure didn't appreciate spending 3 hours out of my life "waiting for the two of them to try to get a handle on it & see if they could make it somewhat enjoyable" before the credits rolled! Ms. Hathaway was way too "Pollyanna-ish" with that ever present 'Julia Roberts 32-teeth smile' & showing off like a 12-year-old displaying all of her little 'talents' for grandma (while faking a lot of it) & the schoolgirl giggle (when nothing was funny at all)! Groan-nn! Most of it was painful to watch, & I almost turned it to see what was on Oprah's OWN network, instead! But I (& everyone else) just kept hanging in there waiting to see who the heck was going to win the 'biggie' awards! We were a 'captive audience,' but next year if they have some amateurs running the show, I'll wait for the 11:00 o'clock news report to find out the winners & forego the 'young & hip' crowd-pleasers (who, BTW, didn't even 'please them' either)!! Please, ABC, make it better next year or you'll lose your audience by the droves!
Christine O'Donnell Claims Joe Biden and 'Thug Politic Tactics' Are Responsible For Campaign Probe (VIDEO)
Jan 3rd 2011 9:43AM Go back to your "day job" Christine (that of being a WITCH, the coven is waiting) & keep out of the political arena, 'kay?! You blew it yourself, with your lying, simpering, whining ways when confronted with the facts of what you've been up to for years, (raiding the campaign coffers) & you were just found out, plain and simple! The likes of you can't fool the upper political echelon, & the 'watchdogs' that look out for charlatans such as yourself! And, BTW, that 'toothy' fake "Miss America" smile is a dead giveaway, too! The pundits & experts (from both parties see right through that in a "Washington DC minute") & don't want any part of you! GO AWAY!!!
Dec 13th 2010 6:55PM Here's what concerns me; Willow has been on the stage performing (what is a very stupid song, BTW) and is probably being "fawned over" every place she goes because of her little "hit" song, and/or because of who and/or what her parents are, and that they are very-yy rich! Well, we have watched her daddy Will Smith's ego soar 'over the moon' from his early popularity with his "hit tunes" then his TV shows and movies. Which brings us to the present; Will (and mamma Jada, too) have both become so insufferable that I can't even watch them anymore! They strut onto a TV talk show and act like they "own" the place, and start bragging about themselves and/or their kids and you can just tell how smug and egotistical they all are (they actually 'reek' with it)! The parents think they are "all that," and it's being handed down to the kids, so of course, they mimic their 'role models'! The boy, Jaden, hardly ever smiles now that he's getting older! He gives off that same 'air' his daddy does, like he's "entitled" and 'works it' by just looking that way, without having to say a word! For their info, they come off just looking like they've smelled something really rotten...so what is that? I don't think that's 'the look' they're striving for, but truthfully, that's what it comes off as! Get your noses out of the air, & come back down to earth, 'Smith family,' or you'll go by the wayside much sooner than you expect! Oh, and "No," I don't like Willow's hair! Just cut it short & let it fall into natural curls; that's always the best look for any child! It would look very cute that way! Try it, Willow, I bet you'd like it too!
Nov 3rd 2010 8:52AM Rick Fox was why I have kept watching each week! Now that he's 'over' -- so am I! I'll not watch it for the rest of the season, it's a fraud & this proves it! So long, Rick...you were wonderful to behold! What a beautiful man, inside & out! XOXOX! ;-*
Sep 20th 2010 9:23AM This is for "Dr. Anna" -- the [self proclaimed] child psychologist -- my information came from raising a "tomboy girl" ourselves & experiencing firsthand, what happened in later years, because of it! Here's an abbreviated version of our story: our firstborn was a son, then 6 years later we had a beautiful curly-haired daughter, who adored her big brother! As she grew bigger she started wanting to wear jeans & T-shirts & sweat shirts, just like him! He played basketball & when she got big enough, she did too -- he taught her the game, & softball, etc., too. He helped their Dad coach her & her sister (who was born 1 1/2 yr. later) & we were a happy "normal" family we thought! Well, later on in her pubescent years (after spending all of her previous years being a rough & tumble tomboy, dressing in 'boy's wear' & insisting on a boy's haircut) the actual old "Sassoon haircut" back then, curls cut off & actual sideburns! At that point in time, she suddenly "turned on" her Dad & me for letting her be a "stupid tomboy" for those years & not directing her on "how to be a girl," like her younger sister was, instead, & we ended up having to find a good psychologist & her spending years in therapy to overcome her "identity crisis"! I am 74 now & she is 51 yrs. old & still talks about being confused & resentful toward us for not 'curtailing' her penchant for dressing like her big brother & she recalls us bragging about her being our "little tomboy" & how she grew to resent that so much, etc. etc. I could go on -- but hopefully you'll get the picture! It's not that "I need more information" before spouting off -- the thing is -- you do, dear "Dr." before you try to act so 'knowing' about the subject! We were lucky to get good help for our daughter when she needed it, but I wish we had known that encouraging her in [& being so accepting of] the emulating her big brother was NOT A GOOD, HEALTHY thing after all! If we hadn't found the Dr. that we did, she might still be fighting with herself about what & who she was & is!
Sep 11th 2010 8:15AM "Dead Man's Curve" by Jan and Dean (1964)
(A really 'morbid' song)!
"Well, the last thing I remember, Doc, I started to swerve...
And then I saw the Jag slide into the curve...
I know I'll never forget that horrible sight...
I guess I found out for myself that everyone was right...
You won't come back from Dead Man's Curve!"
~ Here's some trivia about the production of this song; there is a bit of the *Wall of Sound* in this one (a recording feature that became very popular back then, invented by [the now infamous] Phil Spector, who was a 'big shot' record mogul in his day)! He now sits in prison for murder, remember his trial a year or two ago? "Freaky Phil" was always dangerous & ended up getting what he deserved!
Sep 11th 2010 7:53AM "Midnight at the Oasis" by Maria Muldaur (1974)...OMG! I heard this one way too many times 'back in the day'!
Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed
Shadows paintin' our faces
Traces of romance in our heads...
It goes on (and gets worse)! :-0
Aug 23rd 2010 8:08PM Jennifer Aniston was so good in "Friends" & we all loved her in it every week for years...so, her agent needs to shop around for a great new role for her *IN TV* -- something with another actress, with a "girl buddy" theme, or a 40-something married couple theme, or the single gal at 40 theme, or a newly divorced 40-ish woman who just inherited big bucks from a rich granddaddy & she's ready to "set the world on fire" by "perking up her looks & life" & travel the world looking for a big new purpose, etc. etc. or...many other things I could think of, but she just needs to get back to TV, that's where we fell in love with her, & where she should get back to!
