1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Friday, January 18, 2013. On this day in 1778 the Hawaiian Islands are first discovered by a European and are named the Sandwich Islands. Perhaps this was due to James Cook having recently stopped at a Subway in San Francisco on the way over.

5 The first of the new 2014 Corvettes from Government Motors will be auctioned off Saturday night at the Barrett-Jackson auction. This is one of the very few TV shows that I watch. Barrett-Jackson actually started yesterday and will continue through this weekend. The show begins today at 2 pm ET on the Speed channel.

23 Hello, ‘rons and ‘ronettes. And thanks for the music andmorning briefing, Gabe and Vic. You know, it occurred to me on the drive to work: if TFG wants universal background checks for guns, maybe the gutless GOP ought to agree – but not unless and until Democrats pass a law requiring photo ID at the ballot box.

Ah, who am I kidding? The GOP stand up for the integrity of the vote? Never happen.


Anyway – I wasn’t able to nail down a couple of details on the Addams Family house, so that story, sadly will have to wait. In the meantime, allow me to bring back a blast from the past, in the hope that some of you may not have read it and the rest of you have been so drunk and / or in a food coma that you don’t remember it:


One of the first stories I ever told concerned the MGM-sponsored brothel known as “Mae’s.” Their specialty was providing women who were near-perfect doubles of Hollywood stars such as Claudette Colbert, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis or even, infamously, Shirley Temple. Each woman was dressed and made up by MGM technicians and all were heavily briefed in the latest studio gossip.


This story concerns a writer – I can’t remember right now whether it was Garson Kanin or Heywood Broun, so let’s call him J.J. – who was writing additional dialogue for a Carole Lombard film. Like virtually everyone, J.J. fell hopelessly in love with the sexy, earthy Lombard, and his puppy-dog eyes and besotted attitude were an on-set joke.


J.J.’s birthday happened to occur during the shoot, so his friends decided on an extra-special gift. They got Lombard to write a note, asking J.J. to meet her at some private location, and then took him to Mae’s, where a Lombard double was waiting, dressed in a sheer satin negligee that left nothing to the imagination.


While his friends occupied themselves playing with the other girls, J.J. and “Carole” fell into deep conversation, talking about the problems on set and whether the film would wrap in time. Occasionally, “Carole” would drop hints about the trouble she was having in her relationship with Clark Gable, subtly encouraging J.J. to think the two of them might take up together after the movie. And then, of course, all roads lead to Rome; hand-in-hand, the two went upstairs and J.J. spent the night happily exploring “Carole’s” holy of holies.


On set the next day, he was still over the moon; at least, until the real Lombard came up and slapped him on the shoulder. “I hear we fucked last night. Was I good?”


J.J. flushed red with embarrassment, but Lombard took it all in stride, pumping him for information on her double and about Mae’s, all the time shrieking with laughter. After giving J.J. a long, lingering birthday kiss, she ended up by saying, “I’ve got to tell Clark about this place!” Then, remembering the King of Hollywood’s less than impressive scepter, she reconsidered: “No, I better not. He’d go there. And she’d be so disappointed!”


Hope you enjoyed that. And I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. In fact, what better way to spend the weekend than by losing yourself in 1914 New York through the pages of my book, The Director’s Cut: A Theda Bara Mystery, available on Kindle or through the Amazon or Barnes and Noble websites?


See you all with a new story on Monday.

29 Excellent post on the ban in NY;

http://tinyurl.com/aeyj9xu

Especially this part;

"In both substance and process, the bill which recently passed at the

governors urging and with the support of our legislature will become

infamous for several reasons. Notwithstanding the lack of a concise goal

it will truly accomplish, these primarily include the lack of

transparency, debate and comment from the governed they serve. Our
government agreed to suspend those wise measures to pass and enact a law
they

deemed necessary and proper. Where did they get such power to subvert

the people and our Constitution? Why did they rush it through and fear

the people’s review? Those are questions we should all be asking

ourselves and legislators at the moment."

More frightening is the governor believes this type of behavior will appeal to a national electorate...

California teens could submit paperwork to get on the state's voter rolls three years before they are allowed to cast a ballot under legislation introduced this week.

Senate Bill 113, by Democratic Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, would let Californians "preregister" to vote at age 15, giving the state the nation's youngest minimum age for submitting an affidavit of registration.

While the teens would not be able to vote until turning 18, the Santa Barbara Democrat said she hopes the change would increase the number of active voters by linking the "positive experience" of getting a learner's permit at the Department of Motor Vehicles with registering to vote.

84 sven, Radish:

I never could understand why Lugar didn't just retire. Everyone would have forgiven his erratic votes of the last several years, feted him with banquets and awards, pointed out again his genius in Unigov (expanding city limits to include all of Marion County giving us a fair shot at a GOP mayor in Indianapolis) and everyone would have been unified and happy.

He was too old to run for another 6-year term, as he is 80 now. This made no sense.

So I fall back on my theory that he was being blackmailed and that is why he voted the way he did. And blackmail forced him to stay in office and also caused him to be divisive about Murdock's victory and primary loss.

108 99 Miss Marple,

I think Bush didn't pick him because Bush wanted to reduce US presence on the world stage and probably try to sneak a small force reduction in during the "reset" he campaigned on.

Bush ran on "help is on the way" at military stops he pointed out that 10th Mtn had been home about 1/6th of a decade. They had more Stick Time afield than 82d and 101 combined. Clinton ran the military into the ground and the American people knew it.

Dick Dick Dick would have been pushing for an overt and over the top unilateral reduction in strategic forces at the same time Bush was trying to alter the conventional force matrix. Bush wanted to try to get Poland into Nato overtly and push "the west" east. Dick Dick Dick liked to placate the Russians.

Bush will go down as probably the last America focused PotUS IMHO.

There are some, certainly, FenelonSpoke, though Hollywood, being the sort of place that it is, tends to remember the outrageous stories. But here's a nice one:


During the filming of her last movie, Tugboat Annie in 1933, Marie Dressler was dying of cancer. MGM head Louis B. Mayer knew this, but didn’t want Dressler (who did have some history of emotional problems) to sink into depression, so had her doctors give her upbeat estimates of her prognosis. While on location, Dressler saw a little thatched cottage with a picket fence and rosebushes; she mentioned to a co-star, “When I retire, that’s just the kind of house I want.” When Mayer heard of this, he had the studio carpenters, set designers and landscapers build an exact duplicate of the house on Catalina Island, and gave it to Dressler as a gift. And that’s where she lived until she died in 1934.


I’m sorry about the “sexual antics” if you don’t like them. It was the first story that came to mind this morning (which tells you something about me). But I’ll try to find some happier stories for you, I promise.

136 Heather Radish, I went out with friends last night. First time since the New Year. Here is my report that I posted on the ONT.

Well just got home from hanging out with the anime/gamer/FSA nuts.
There is J who seems to oscillate between passing college and not, while desiring to always be at a con or in a mosh pit. Then there is E, he is the sarcastic angry slacker who never does anything. H was wearing a dog collar while she busily did another furry sketch, asked her if she wanted to tackle book cover but she has shown no interest. Across the booth from H is S, she is blond with multiple piercings who just exists to orbit H. C1 is a big teddy bear of a guy, easily going nowhere. C2 is a smaller teddy bear but is always being dominated by H, E, C1, and others. C3 is probably the only one who will make anything of himself, amateur videographer who is studying Chinese in college. Finally for special snowflake mention is Brony Boy - skinny black guy with goatee who is living for his PS3 this Friday while wearing a Rainbow Pony hoodie [baby blue hoodie with a rainbow mane on the hood and little baby blue wings sewn on back].

This is the future it seems. I am going to pull the covers over my head and wish this world away.

141 #130 Hollywood has ALWAYS drawn self-centered, often narcissistic people, and the acting profession has been notorious for loose morals since the days of Shakespeare.

The difference is that in the old days, the studios kept all of this scandal out of the papers. Despite how their employees acted in their personal lives, we saw the image of happy marriages, wholesome young starlets, and patriotic Americans.

With the collapse of the studio system there is no longer a brake on their public behavior, whether personal or political. I do not consider this progress.

Was the old studio system phony? Yep. However, because of it we didn't have traitorous stars consorting with communists in the middle of a war, nor sexual escapades held up as examples to youth.

147 Sven, they have their good moments. But it seems they are going nowhere, but as long as they can play their gaming consoles and talk smack they are happy. These are the ones who will drop $60 for a game but would online comics instead of paying money for one. So draw your conclusion on if they have a hand-cranked flashlight amongst them.

148 And yeah, there's some good new stuff out there but you have to hunt for it.



I mostly listen to improv (I'd say "jazz" but I don't want to give the wrong idea that I'd listen to anything like that asshole Cahrlse Joonnsh plays) but like to at least hear what rock is out there. At the end of every year I check out the WSJ's best-of list for rock/pop/whatever and just start reserving all that shit at the library. Not all of it dovetails with my taste but it never falls below a certain level of quality and keeps me from having to slog through all the shit. Plus I have one bud who does slog through all the mung and lets me know when he finds something worthwhile.

The studios controlled the actors as well as a publicity machine that was in bed with the columnists and papers. One notable time where the apple cart was upset was "Citizen Kane" when Hearst went after Welles and RKO. The other was the Fatty Arbuckle incident.

Today, a star can get away with virtually anything so long as their politics match up with the culture. In that regard the leftists are the new studio system.

was arguing with me over his not being effected by bambiCare at all b/c "I'm a small business."

I did taxes for a living, I have a Tax Preparer ID and was studying for my Enrolled Agent cert....not saying "guru" but am saying I know how to read federalese.

My friend he is friends with says it is just now sinking in with the news of the Wendy's protest that he may be incorrect.

169 Though nowhere near as hated as Harry Cohn, Louis B. Mayer could be a real sonofabitch. If you worked at MGM, you either loved or hated him, but you respected him and if you loved him, were loyal forever. His treatment of Judy Garland in particular was less than stellar, to be charitable and I lost a lot of respect for the man because of it, to say nothing of his treatment of Irving Thalberg at the end of his life.

But this story about Marie Dressler is very moving. It shows a very different side of LB; he was sentimental, loyal to his friends, believed in decency in motion pictures (which led to his firing from MGM in 1951) and was a staunch patriot.

You cannot say that about virtually ANYONE in show business today.

180 Yes, J.J., Mayer's a hard man to like. Although Thalberg himself, who could "piss ice water," in the words of one director, when he had to, was no naif, he didn't deserve the backstabbing he got from Schenck and Mayer - or that comment "Isn't God good to me!" that Mayer made coming back from Thalberg's funeral.

With all due respect to the more sensitive Morons of the horde who come here, surely they must realize fairly quickly the nature of this blog and of the commentary. I mean, considering that commentary often leads to references of anything from pudendae to "The Aristocrats" and everything in between, it's hard to get upset about something as mile as adultery among 1930's movie stars.

The Romans, sadly, had many of the same traits.

They could survive many things, but they could not survive prosperity. Once they had it, they became willing to sacrifice every principle to keep it. Augustus held power because Rome feared more Civil War. The Senate became a group of toadies and battered wives.

We are a nation spending imaginary money which doesn't want to confront that fact. Republicans in Washington are afraid to even mention it.

If it passed both houses of the state legislature, was signed by the governor, the governor withstood a recall election sparked by this issue specifically, a circuit judge upheld parts of the law, and the circuit panel upheld ALL of the law - is that law really "controversial"?
