Status Updates posted by DramatistDreamer

  1. Heyyyy, Netflix has its own separate thread, so now I know where to put all the Netflix posts!

    Also, I can still increase font size in this post, so I guess it's just in replying to a Status Update created by someone else, that I cannot increase font?


    Overall, I appreciate the less crowded look of the site's layout.

  2. It's a solemn time, I know but I'm sorry...I could not stop laughing at this!:ph34r::lol::lol:


  3. Murder Hornets?!! WTF!

    1. YRBB


      2020 just keeps on delivering!

    2. DramatistDreamer


      The fact that they are coming specifically for North America tells me something. Maybe these "Open The Country" fools might be the first targets of the Murder Hornets.

  4. Lionsgate has been showing a livestream of Dirty Dancing on their YouTube channel. Apparently, they've been doing these livestreams regularly in the wake of the pandemic

  5. I rarely post memes but this one seems especially apt and timely.


  6. Kim Fields is going to be Live on Black film blog Shadow and Act later on today.


  7. Whoever did that #SavageChallenge with Kamala Harris is pretty brilliant.

  8. Can someone please explain to me why people are fighting over toilet paper??

      And fruit snacks. I guess people are afraid of supply chain disruption. Then once the news starts showing shortages caused by hoarding, everyone else starts feeling like they have to hoard too. The hoarding of hand sanitizer seems especially silly.

    3. DramatistDreamer


      The run on cleaning products is odd too, since, it makes me believe that some people weren't already cleaning their homes.  Rubbing alcohol was off the shelves but somehow, there's more soap than ever! Do people not believe that washing their hands is actually more effective than hand sanitizer? Are there that many people w/out access to running water?

    4. Juliajms


      I think people are hoarding cleaning products, especially things like disinfecting wipes out of fear.  It gives a false sense of control.  If I were going to bother to hoard (which I'm not) I'd worry more about canned food and other non perishable nutritious foods. Frozen and canned veggies, soup, rice and pasta probably. The hand sanitizer might be helpful if you have kids and are out and about, but I think most of us are going to get this no matter what we do. I feel really bad for the elderly. Not just the illness, but when the nursing homes stop people from visiting (and they almost certainly will) the loneliness is going to be hard.

  9. R.I.P. James Lipton. A man of many dramatic talents.

  10. The wig alone puts Tyler Perry to shame.😂


    1. Khan


      Actually, aside from the wig, it was better than anything Tyler's multi-tasked in, like, ever, lol.

    2. ReddFoxx


      The ending was unexpected, lol. That poster has some of the funniest videos.

  11. Did Pamela Anderson really stay married to husband #5 long enough for him to pay off her debts, then bounce?

      I'm still giggling over 'international love affair.' Yes, I know she's going to Canada and back but still... lol.


      I don't think Jon Peters is an easily intimidated dude. He was Barbra Streisand's wig designer before parlaying that into 'lover' AND 'producing partner' (certainly nobody on the A Star Is Born set could stand Peters). He's had 5 marriages. Apparently his ego was and likely still is huge!


      But yeah, from the text it does sound like she might have tired him out, so to speak, lol.


      As for Pammy, well, glad she moved on from that abusive football player back in France. Jon Peters was definitely a step up from the French D-list where she was languishing. The ole girl does keep it moving! Everytime I see her, though, I fight the urge to give her a tetanus shot, throw her in the shower and pray for her eyebrows to grow back (god, I hate how she uses magic marker for her eyebrows).

    3. Khan


      Wait.  Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters were married?

    4. Vee


      Few have deserved to get bilked more than him.

  12. I can't believe a 'Supermarket Sweep' revival inspired a bidding war!

  13. If anyone is look for a set to film a sequel to 'The Shining', Dr. Phil's house should just cover it.

    1. ChitHappens


      What a nightmare that house is!  



    2. DramatistDreamer


      I was just hoping I wouldn't have nightmares after looking at this last night.

  14. Maybe Frank Underwood was based on Kevin Spacey? His videos give me the creeps!

  15. Every kid in the U.K. this Christmas.


  16. I'm surprised that people didn't realize that Jennifer Lopez played a supporting role in Hustlers.

      Performances aside, anyone who reads a script knows which role is clearly meant to be supporting and which is meant to be leading. 

    3. Khan


      No, what I meant was, J. Lo isn't as relevant anymore, so I don't think people care all that much whether she's playing supporting in a movie or the lead.

    4. Vee


      She is, though; the film was very well-received and she even moreso. It's a big deal for her and IMO she earned it.

  17. These Baby Yoda memes. :lol:


  18. Sometimes it's odd how the timing of things end up.  Just over the weekend, I saw one of those commercials with Wilford Brimley and wondered if there had ever been a reunion interview with the cast of Our House.  As a child, I watched that show every Sunday evening.  Today, with that news about Days Of Our Lives, it made me think about this again.  When will we see the cast get together for an interview about the show? Mr. Brimley isn't getting any younger.

  19. Jessye Norman's voice is power and drama and elegance and poignance and joy and utter beauty. R.I.P. to a true Diva!

      Her voice is one of the most amazing things ever!  I completely zone out while listening.


      RIP 🙏

    3. ChitHappens


      @Donna B pull up some of her work on YT.  Brilliance!  

    4. Donna B

      Donna B

      @ChitHappens, oh, okay, I'll have to do that.

  20. I haven't read this Eddie Murphy interview but this sounds like an apt description for change/evolution.


    1. Vee


      I mean, he apologized for them in the '90s.

    2. DramatistDreamer


      The article apparently also discusses how Eddie is reminding comedians that their work is and should be open to criticism, it's all a part of the business, so he doesn't understand comedians who rail against criticism, it is what it is.

  21. Wasn't there a Popular Music in Soaps thread somewhere?  Seriously, what happened to it??

  22. Not quite a reboot but I loved this!

      Has ABLSS been on awhile?  I can't believe I haven't heard or seen one thing about it.  (Yes, I can.  This is America, after all, and like hell they're gonna give publicity to a sketch show created, produced, starring, written and directed by WOC.)


      My Lord.  This isn't just good comedy.  This is GROUNDBREAKING.

    3. Errol


      @Khan It's an HBO show that started a few weeks ago. I think this is maybe its third episode since debuting. HBO has several clips from the episodes on its YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLO79iP69FaZPUe5TEM4i99eUANCbFThx3


      My favorite clips is the one featuring Angela Bassett

  23. I don't subscribe to cable anymore but this show has the potential to be a hit, imo.  This had me laughing so much!


    1. DRW50


      I've taped it and keep meaning to watch it.

      I'll watch one of the Ru Girls anywhere.

  24. Whew, Titus Burgess does NOT like Andy Cohen, LOL.

    2. NothinButAttitude


      That s*it was hilarious last night. Titus let Andy know real quick that he isn't the one. That aside, I am so glad that so many are waking up to the problematic a**hole that is Andy Cohen.

    3. KMan101


      I've never liked Andy Cohen ...

    4. Khan


      Let's put it this way: I find it amusing that Andy Cohen reads books, let alone writes 'em.

  25. Anyone following this craziness with men's swimming?  I'm sorry I missed out on the actual competitive races but apparently Chinese swimmer Sun Yang and his fellow competitors do not get along!  I'm reading about it all now but I'm going to go to YouTube later on to see if I can get some video footage, lol, because this drama I want to see!:lol:

    1. I Am A Swede

      I Am A Swede

      Yes, it's been unusual scenes. Sun Yang has already served a suspension for doping and is currently under investigation once again. This has not made him popular among his fellow competitors and both Australian swimmer Mack Horton and British swimmer Duncan Scott have refused to stand beside him on the podium during medal presentations and also refused to congratulate him.

    2. DramatistDreamer


      I read that Sun allegedly smash a vial of his blood that anti-doping testers had just collected from him before they could leave with it! :o  Apparently, the testers did not show proper I.D. before asking to take the sample but whoa, what an extreme reaction!  Why not just contact WADA?
