    Yep, Lucie Arnaz is on record saying she hated that TV movie. She especially hated that CBS--which was basically put on the map as TV network by I Love Lucy--were the ones to do it, and not long after Lucy's death.
     
    The morbidly curious side of meis interested in seeing Mo as Desi, though.

    Yeah, I didn't originally find it to a be a problem. I could see how it could be interpreted that way, though.
    But really, my biggest issue was Joseph Kahn saying he isn't racist because the producer or whoever was a "super hot" black woman. Because God forbid she's average looking. SO tone-deaf.
    Anyway, I'm sorry guys. I DO have things I like about her, but I have been getting tired of her lately. I really do a love-hate thing for her. You might have to kick me out eventually.

    If it's about her marriage to Desi only--which I've heard it was--there's a LOT to go on. Namely, Lucy suffering because of Desi's cheating/drinking, and her being more strait-laced. Hell, the movie could end with her marrying Gary, it's not supposed to be about her whole life.
     
    I'm mainly wondering whether or not Cate Blanchett is the best actress to cast as Lucy. Yes, she's a good actress, but that doesn't mean she might not have been miscast. Lucy was known to work on a gag on I Love Lucy--or any of her shows--until she felt she had it right; she almost NEVER improvised. Because of that and her reputation as a rather serious shrewd businesswoman, casting CB might be to an advantage. But being able to play both comedy and drama and pull it off isn't easy, and Cate isn't exactly known for comedic roles. Are there any good examples for her?
     
    In a related note, Debra Messing must be ready to shank a bitch right about now, LOL. (DM IDOLIZES Lucy.)

    I mean, I understand what they're saying. I'm mixed on her anyway. I DO think people get carried away about her sometimes (and yes, I include myself in that, mainly because I sometimes wished I looked like her, even though I look fine ), but occasionally, I think they have a point.
     
    But I'm already risking getting the Swifties to have me executed, so I'll stop while I'm ahead.

    The unfortunate racial implications of the "Wildest Dreams" video:

    Also, Joseph Kahn, the director of the video, is an idiot:

    Okay, y'all are probably going to be kick my ass for this, but this is funny. It's based on how many very random high-profile guests Taylor has had on stage recently, and, I'm sorry, I think it's funny as hell. Some of the more hardcore Swifties would probably have me stoned for thinking so:
     
     
    I will say that it DOES seem to have gotten to a point where she seems to be parading random famous people on stage just because she can. It's one thing to have surprise guests who sing with her, but at some point, the guests during "Style", even though I know about the runway stuff she does, kind of took on a desperate STUNT QUEEN angle to me. 
     
    ...And now y'all are going to kill me for saying that. Oh well.
     
    Anyway, as a figure skating fan, the Tonya and Nancy part of this my favorite.

    Have any of you guys seen this? This was done right after the Twitter feud between Nicki and Taylor got started. The first part is kind of ironic, given what just happened with Nicki and Miley.
     
    This guy makes a lot of these videos. He has a whole series called Ratchet White Girls.

    I don't think Miley was expecting it, though. Here's a video posted by someone who was at the VMA's last night of Mley's reaction when Nicki called her out. The look on her face clearly says "Bitch says WHAT?" Maybe Nicki planned it, but somehow I think Miley's reaction was genuine.

    And now for the video to "Wildest Dreams." The guy in the video is Scott Eastwood, son of Clint.

    Oh okay, gotcha. That's definitely not common at all.

    That's pretty common after shootings, though. After Columbine, the season 3 finale of Buffy was postponed (although Canada somehow wound up broadcasting it as scheduled anyway), that's happened before.
     

    Chubbuck's family received the footage after her suicide, so if it wasn't destroyed, someone in her family most likely has it. There is a great documentary on Budd Dwyer called Honest Man, which included interviews with his widow and kids, and it showed both the speech he made beforehand and the shooting, uncensored. I had to turn away when they got to that part. What makes it worse is that Central Pennsylvania had been hit by a bad snowstorm that day, which means that there were several children home from school who witnessed it, and a few PA stations showed it uncensored during their evening newscasts.
     
    Alison was only two years younger than me. Adam was a year older than me.

    I can't bring myself to look at the video. I lived near Roanoke at one point. Southwest Virginia is just a beautiful part of the country. This is so sad.

    "Wildest Dreams" is the next single from 1989. I expected it, really, but I still hope "Clean" will released next.
