@Scandyhoovian But which one is it? This is causing me anguish -fellow nerd who used to do extra grammar exercises for fun
This is great. Tracy Chapman is how I finally broke through with my boyfriend's Dad who'd immigrated from Nigeria in the 80's. He asked me to pick a record and I picked Tracy Chapman. He went on to tell me about how "Fast Car" had gotten him through the worst hard times when he had first come to the US. After working a shift at McDonalds, another shift at Shoney's and then night school before coming home to two kids and wife, he used to put on "Fast Car" and it would always remind of him of what he had come to the US to do; "Be Someone".
25 years later, he is a professor of Economics at Morehouse! Without Tracy, who's to say what would have happened?
@Linette Wow, that would fill a void that I never knew existed in my life until just now. The show must happen.
I will buy the shit out of this book. I don't care if there is no new material (I think I've read all these columns at least twice), I must have ALL OF THE PICTURES. The pretty, glossy black and whites is what I'm after.
@You'll be sorry Jo March That is okay.
@Lyssachelle I audibly gasp.
This installment of Scandals of Classic Hollywood just made the worst day ever into the BEST day ever.
Great Pictures, gossip, EVERYTHING. Almost made me forget that my supervisor assigned a project I asked for to someone who has only been working at my office for 2 months.
@Inkling Mechele Linhehan was profiled on Dateline, Snapped, and 48 Hours on ID.
Clearly this woman is fascinating.
@The Kendragon Are you kidding? Trixie Belden was my shit. Trixie was so real that when she sucked snake poison out of her brother's leg it was NBD and not even a major plot point. Just regular afternoon activity that was causally mentioned in chapter 2.
I cannot even read this because I am shaking so much from excitement. Please keep doing these. It is the only think that keeps me going at work.
