The pages are especially worth a look if you're a comic strip/sci fi fan...mouse over them to see what number they are.

Chain-Letter-6I've held onto the hastily Xeroxed (and re-Xeroxed...and re-Xeroxed) pages of this 60-page chain letter for over 20 years, at first because it's filled with interesting names and drawings (again, not originals...dammit!) by famous artists, and then later because the very concept of a physical chain letter has become so antiquated.

The letters include everyone from Bette Midler to Goldie Hawn, from the late wife of Ricardo Montalban to JFK's press secretary, from publisher Joni Evans to the Hollywood Reporter's George Christy. To me, it's fascinating.

Check out the pages in the gallery above, and some notes on the pages below...

Chexytoons: Ice Water In Her Veins Comments (0)

Ice bucket challege

Via Chexy Decimal: What cracks me up about this more than even the fact that it's Joan Crawford in that pose, is the idea of any stars of the past participating in anything like an ice-bucket challenge. Not that things were better back then (classy is overrated and usually not really accurate), but they sure as hell were different!

Joan's only concession to the ice-bucket challenge:

Mommie-Dearest

Madonna: The Lost Movie Star Comments (0)

At one point, Madonna was asked why she continued trying to be a movie star. Her response: “I am a movie star.” And she was correct. It's like art; you may not dig the work, but it's not not art, it's just good or bad art, and only in your opinion, and the person making it is, by def, an artist.

So yes, Madonna was and is a movie star.

As far as her success at it, she's had some hits and some spectacular misses, and her acting has ranged from atrocious to really good. (She's never been flawless, IMHO.)

Here's how Decider ranks Madonna's movies.

After the jump, my own list, which combines both her performance and the film itself...
