Gay-rapper

The Popinjay has released a double-video for his songs “Superman Glasses” (an R-rated orgy of gay stereotypes) “Kill the Straights” (a blood-thirsty satire of homophobic rap songs that turns the tables by calling for the death of all straights). 

It's pretty gross stuff if you don't take it in the way it was intended. Or maybe it is anyway. Your opinions welcome...

Cold Gossip & Broken News: All The Dish From 1977! Comments (0)

Gossip-World-1

My buddy Sandra dug up a 1977 issue of a teen mag called Gossip World and gleefully sent me scans that demand some dissection.

The cover is hoot, targeting Hollywoods (sic) vamps, scamps & tramps, but tramps was too raw so gets the blank-space treatment. Wonder which of the pictured celebs—Cheryl Ladd, Barry Manilow, Jaclyn Smith, Shaun Cassidy, Kate Jackson and/or Peter Frampton—were which one of the pejoratives?

KLAATU

The mention of KLAATU threw me for a loop, but they're apparently a prog-rock band from Canada. Can't imagine they were moving many Gossip World copies, but as a former teen-mag editor myself, I'm assuming maybe they were favorites of the editor...the hilariously named Rona January! I'm gonna guess that's a pseudonym created to confuse readers who might be thinking of Rona Barrett?

The best has to be the pages of blind items:

Gossip-World-2

“A real shocker concerns the TV star who promised to marry his long time love and then changed his mind. Afterward she went through the abortion.”

Going through an abortion...is that anything like when you drive through a car wash?

Gossip-World-3

“If the truth were known about this famous singing star, it would outsell her recordings. She has a large problem...she digs women. She married twice to help remedy the situation, but both men she married dig men.”

Apparently, there was a sordid truths Top 40 that I wasn't aware of. I guess lesbianism would have gone platinum. You dig?

Gossip-World-4

“Almost as hard to believe is the aging movie queen who loves her men to be boys—YOUNG BOYS. She's at the warm milk stage before bed, and her dates have to show their IDS in other to enter a bar.”

Every item is so poorly written it's actually funnier than the made up stories!

Iconic Film, Theater & Film Director/Comic Writer Mike Nichols Dies @ 83 Comments (0)

Mike-NicholsNovember 6, 1931—November 19, 2014

Mike Nichols, the acclaimed director of such film classics as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) and The Graduate (1967), as well as one half of the legendary comedy duo of Nicolas & May with Elaine May (b. April 21, 1932) in the '50s and '60s, has died at 83. He'd been married since 1988 to journalist Diane Sawyer (b. December 22, 1945).

Nichols won the Oscar for The Graduate, only his second film, and delivered many other memorable movies as diverse as Catch-22 (1970), Carnal Knowledge (1971), Gilda Live (1980), Silkwood (1983), Postcards from the Edge (1990), The Birdcage (1996) and his last film, Charlie Wilson's War (2007).

Movies

In 2001, he brought the highly regarded play Wit to TV, and three years later directed an ambitious Angels in America adaptation for HBO.

Nichols & May were known for their improvisational comedy, which led them to the successful Broadway show An Evening with Mike Nichols and Elaine May. They split, both creatively and personally, but later buried the hatchet and teamed up on plays and films. (May wrote both The Birdcage and the Clinton parody Primary Colors.)

Nicholas was extremely active and frequently rewarded for his efforts in the theater, including directing enduring classics Barefoot in the Park (1963—his debut), The Odd Couple (1965), The Prisoner of Second Avenue (1971), Annie (1977), Hurlyburly (1984), Whoopi Goldberg's blank-titled one-woman show (1984) and the relatively recent runaway hit Spamalot (2005). His final work on Broadway was as the director of Betrayal in 2013, starring Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz.

Apparently, Nicholas had not been in ill health, but died suddenly of a heart attack. A major loss for the entertainment world.
