Michael Imperioli has the best response to the Supreme Court’s homophobic ruling
July 3rd, 2023 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, the supreme court said it is OK for a “Christian” business to turn down business from someone if they are a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

So, Michael Imperioli has a message for the people who agree with that decision. He wrote, “I’ve decided to forbid bigots and homophobes from watching The Sopranos, The White Lotus, Goodfellas or any movie or tv show I’ve been in. Thank you Supreme Court for allowing me to discriminate and exclude those who I don’t agree with and am opposed to. USA ! USA!”

And I would like to make that same offer to the bigots and homophobes; you can’t read my site either! I am all about love and accepting people for who they are. If you can’t go along with that, then I can’t get along with you.


Chrissie Hynde gives the rockingest statement about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
March 17th, 2023 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

You would think that musicians would want to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but so many don’t. And let’s just Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick’s reluctance last year was nothing new.

In 2005, Chrissie Hynde was inducted into the Hall of Fame with The Pretenders’ only other surviving band member Martin Chambers.

Today the singer posted about the Hall of Fame, and let’s just say she is not a fan.

If anyone wants my position in the rock ‘n’ roll Hall of Fame they are welcome to it. I don’t even wanna be associated with it. It’s just more establishment backslapping. I got in a band so I didn’t have to be part of all that.

I was living a happy life in Rio when I got the call I was being inducted. My heart sank because I knew I’d have to go back for it as it would be too much of a kick in the teeth to my parents if I didn’t. I’d upset them enough by then, so it was one of those things that would bail me out from years of disappointing them. ( like moving out of the USA and being arrested at PETA protests and my general personality ).

Other than Neil Young’s participation in the induction process, the whole thing was, and is, total bollocks.

It’s absolutely nothing to do with rock ‘n’ roll and anyone who thinks it is is a fool.

And that is why she is a Rock Gd! She doesn’t pretend, pun intended, something that she is not. They don’t make rockers like her anymore. And I hate to say it, but that is why she is in the HoF. Even if she doesn’t want to be there.

And she is not the only one to feel this way. I have heard this sentiment before from other members of it. It won’t go away, but they should change it up because a lot of Rock Stars hate it and how they treat them.


Little House’s Ketty Lester wants cards for her 88th birthday!
August 2nd, 2022 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

Little House on the Prairie’s Ketty Lester is going to turn 88 on August 16th, and the singer/actress has one request for all of us to make her special day even more special.

Birthday blues. I get a touch of ’em every year, the older I get. I guess everybody does when you reach a certain age. It comes with the territory. And reading of Nichelle Nichols’ passage at 89 and Bill Russell’s passing at 88 just makes this 87 year old lady more aware of time. I’ve outlived 14 brothers and sisters. I’m the last…and I wonder why sometimes.

Changed the calendar today and realized I am expected (God willing) to turn 88 on August 16th. You know what I’d like for my birthday? A card from you. I want to hold a real card that comes in the mail the way they used to, before the internet. Is that silly? I love to read the letters and cards you’ve sent me faithfully over the years. Your words, your stories and your messages mean so much and getting them in the mail is kind of a sweet surprise…makes an old lady feel less lonely! I love flowers, chocolate, perfume like any woman, but what I love most of all is love. If you’d care to send me a birthday card as I turn 88 on August 16th, I would sure appreciate it. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye. shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh. findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”, it is written.

My manager said to me today that if I was feeling this way, I should “put it out there” and so I am. That’s all. I’ve got rehearsal tomorrow for my show on August 14th and probably a photo or two to share in the next day or so. ‘Til then, if you’d care to send a birthday card to ol’

Ketty, this is where they should be sent:
Miss Ketty Lester c/o DAEIDA / 1049 Havenhurst Dr. No. 20 / West Hollywood, CA 90046

Miss Lester has brought us so much happiness as Hester-Sue Terhune and in so many other roles, so let’s give her some joy. Let’s run out, buy her an old school birthday card, and wish her the happiest 88th birthday!

Who doesn’t love getting a physical card on their big day? I miss getting them. Maybe we can start a new tradition by reviving an old one.


Scream Queen Heather Langenkamp wants you to give blood
January 26th, 2022 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

Heather Langenkamp has lost a lot of fake blood in the many horror movies she has starred in, including three of The Nightmare on Elm Street ones. Now, she is asking you to lose some of your blood.

“As a person who has made her career in the BLOODY horror genre – I would like to plead with my followers to give some blood this week if they can,” the actress wrote. “While there’s never a shortage of blood in Hollywood, the REAL WORLD is in dire need of it!!!”

If you can donate, please contact the Red Cross or your local hospital to give blood, platelets, or plasma. As an added bonus, if you do it between now and the 31st, Krispy Kreme will give you a box of a dozen glazed donuts.

I am a platelet donor, and I can tell you it feels so good to give. I can’t tell you why, but it does. Try it; you can watch a Netflix movie or series when you do it. And you can save a life!


Is this the saddest or smartest cake you’ve ever seen?
June 4th, 2021 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

When we were kids, we wanted our birthday cakes all to ourselves. However, that was never the case. Well, there is a three-year-old girl who figured out how to make that happen.

According to her uncle Casey Feigh, “She asked for a Lion King cake but specifically the moment where Mufasa dies, because ‘everyone will be too sad to eat the cake & it will be all for me.'” Then he added, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEONA!! You already got life figured out. Can’t wait to see what else you teach me.”

I don’t know about you, but I am getting a Bambi cake this year, then Old Yeller followed by Marley and Me, Of Mice and Men, City of Angels, and finally one from Mask, the one with Eric Stoltz and Cher.

What cake are you getting for your happy day to make everyone else sad?
