You'll Read GOLDEN GIRLS FOREVER Many, Many Times! Comments (0)

Picture it: Your living room, late at night, Grindr's buzzing but you're blissfully unaware. Why? Because you just got a book, a book so good they named it.

If you love The Golden Girls—and let's face it, if you don't, maybe you're on the wrong site?—you will love Golden Girls Forever: An Unauthorized Look Behind the Lanai (Harper Design, $35) by Jim Colucci, and you will absolutely never regret devoting many quiet evenings to committing it to memory.

Colucci authored the already indispensable The Q Guide to the Golden Girls (Alyson, 2006)—which was specifically targeted at fancy men everywhere—but has taken a more encyclopedic approach this time around, offering 368 pages filled with internal memos; stills; on-set personal candids; interviews with “the show's creators, actors, guest stars, producers, writers, and crew members”; and even a section of tributes from famous fans like Zachary Quinto and Laverne Cox. 

As the expert on the series, Colucci was able to interview Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur in the years prior to their deaths, and also delivers a new Q&A with Betty White.

The book's greatest use is its inclusion of exhaustive summaries of every episode, which do a lot more than regurgitate IMDb factoids. Colucci offers original comments from the creatives on the making-of that serve as incredible oral histories, the likes of which few if any other TV series have ever received.

Golden Girls Forever also faithfully documents fan art and fan-appreciation events/plays, making it not just a memento of the series, but a breathlessly faithful chronicle of its impact on the greater culture.

On a more superficial level, the book is also beautifully designed, as pretty as Blanche's perky bosoms.

Take a lesson, Rose, Golden Girls Forever is how you tell a story.

Express Your Civic Pride: Drop A Deuce On The Donald! Comments (0)

Turns out that Donald Trump is so unpopular, the star he bought for himself via shell corporation (snark) on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been continually defaced, spat upon and used as an outdoor toilet.

Never had this issue with Francis X. Bushman.

Doris Day turned 92 (or 94, depending on which source you believe!) yesterday, and she did her usual waving-from-the-balcony photo op.

Looks amazing, no?

People hate Donald Trump so much that someone went to the trouble of placing an ominous tombstone dedicated to his D.O.A. aspirations in Central Park:
