Alejandro Mogollo did the original illustrations in my Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, and I think he is extremely gifted. He captures famous faces and figures perfectly.



Check out his new Facebook page for a taste of what he can do.


I'm sure he takes requests!

Mind The Gap: Marie Osmond Morphs Into Everyone Else Comments (0)


This is fun to watch—Marie Osmond aping great gay icons—but some are more miss than hit. She's great as Marilyn, looks a bit Lisa Rinna as Elizabeth Taylor, is PERFECTION as Elsa Lanchester and then for Madonna, well, the eyes are way too intense and the final shot was done in Swept Away-style color. I think she's more Kate McKinnon above.

Below, see some of the work of Kim Goodwin, who is regardless quite the artist with warpaint...

Quantity & Quality: Prolific Character Actor Eli Wallach Dies @ 98 Comments (0)

Eli WallachEli Wallach, one of the most versatile and prolific actors in movie history, has died at 98.

The list of movie-loving household names with whom he worked in his 50-plus-year film career includes everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Al Pacino.

Tiffeni-2009061442018-eliwallachtiffany-originalWallach was perhaps best known for his role as “Tuco” in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), but also made big impressions in films as diverse as Baby Doll (1956), The Misfits (1961), Lord Jim (1965) and in the otherwise pedestrian The Godfather: Part III (1990).

His final feature film, shot well into his nineties, appears to have been Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010).


WallachjacksonHe is survived by a large family, including his actress wife Anne Jackson (pictured), to whom he was married for more than 66 years.

Wallach's stage work is as revered as his work in film; he appeared with Jackson in innumerable productions.

I never met Mr. Wallach, but did spot him at—of all places—a Madonna photo exhibit; he was a family friend of photographer Richard Corman. I just re-watched The Misfits and just saw The Godfather: Part III for the first time, both in the past week.

Marilyn Monroe

An eight-ton, stainless steel likeness of Marilyn Monroe was unceremoniously hauled to the dump in China after having been commissioned and put on display in front of a business center for a mere six months. This woman just can not get a break.

Marilyn Monroe would have been 88 years old today. (I was going to post a video of Jimmy James singing “Happy Birthday” as MM, but couldn't find one!)
