FEUD-BETTE & JOAN

If your like I, a big Joan Crawford fan and Jessica Lange fan, then I bet you can't wait for the premier of the new Ryan Murphy show, which is highly anticipated..... Feud: Bette and Joan starring Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis and Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford. Feud , which starts March 5 on FX, chronicles the intense rivalry between Davis and Crawford that began during their heydays in the ’30s and ’40s. Davis, who was probably the greater actress once said of Crawford, “She slept with every male costar at MGM except Lassie.” And Crawford, by far, the more glamorous star once said Davis appeared to have “never had a happy day — or night — in her life." Though the series is sometimes going to be as outrageous as the dueling divas I read, it’s also to be a astute and occasionally shattering study of two women victimized by men, by the media, by the studio system; a cautionary, compassionate feminist tale.


Rounding out the cast is  Katy Bates as Joan Blondell, Judy Davis as Hedda Hopper, Sarah Paulson as Geraldine Page, Stanly Tucci as Jack Warner, and Catherine Zeta Jones as Olivia De Havilland. This is going to be delicious. Here's the first flirt........

RISE AND SHINE.....IT'S MONDAY

After this weekend, the Mistress is going to need a good jump start of coffee. I was busy with weekend guest at the Raven for a mid winter reunion night and show with the good people and friends from the Woods Campground, one of my summer time playgrounds. Yours truly and everyone had a good ole time, but the spirit got the better of the Mistress after a swim in the gin pool.  Yesterday was spent mostly nursing a hangover lounging, it was much needed. Next weekend will probably be a repeat. Lady Bunny is in town.....and that will get ugly fast! Now where's that coffee??????


How do you like your coffee????

FROM THE CANDY SHOP


While the Mistress will be entertaining what seems like masses of friends coming this weekend, I'll be out and about most of the time, but fear not.....I have the candy shop open , with what is a very sweet, very rich, very luscious bounty of melt in mouth and hopefully, your hands goodness......Ben Todd!!!! Ben has ALWAYS got your Mistress's juices flowing, my claws ready for the dig, my kitty purrrrrrring, well you see why?!?!  I have also learned from Ben there’s a lot of unsaid perceptions about the male body, that twinks should be smooth, and older guys shouldn’t be hairless. Butt, I mean but, model Ben Tood, photographed by fashion photographer Hayden Su, proves that all those opinions are just a bunch of BS. In the sexy shoot, Ben puts his tight and very hairy torso on display and damn does it work… so fiiiiiine! I'm normally a advocate for a little manscaping, but this may well have changed my mind. And how I LOVE THT BIG HAIR!
And what prefect GPD he has in jeans. You know, gluteus maximus pultrude disorder. Example of this above.

IRWIN ALLEN'S NEXT DISASTER FILM DEBUTS


Irwin Allen's next film is bound to be a huge film of disastrous proportions
It started with a little spark and turns into a huge disaster that will get out of control quickly like most of his films and will head our way ...regrettably. It's not a Towering Inferno sequel, but will probably go up just as fast as the Glass Tower did.........


The Trump Presidency!!!!!
Trump and his Administration in the White House, believed essentially honest by his minions,but remain largely unaware of the sickening horde of bigots, neocon warmongers and corrupt, shitheel mutants he’s surrounding himself with as he officially takes office.click to embiggin

Nikki Haley
Where did they find this crazy lookin idiot? Haley plays the part of US Ambassador to the UN! Yikes.

Mike Flynn
 Stars  as the National Security Advisor



Steve Bannon
Steve stars as the White House Chief Strategist


Elaine Chao
The former labor secretary will star as transportation secretary.Elaine is a shockingly incompetent, soulless, corporate parasite who spent roughly eight years deriding American workers as smelly, lazy and uncooperative.

Betsy DeVos
This bitch will star as the Sectary of Education.

Wilbur Ross
 Wilbur stars as the elderly secretary of Commerce Yes I know....will he even make it to take the reins???

And let's not forget the other buffoons rounding out the cast of evil and chaos...Rex Tillerson as the Secretary of State, loser Rick Perry as the Secretary of Energy, Mike Pence as the very evil Vice President. Playing the part of Housing and Urban Development, Ben Carson, huge starring role of Chief of staff is Reince Priebus and lets not forget the two bat shit crazy stars of Kellyanne Conway and KT McFarland  as counselor and National Security Advisor respectfully. Not to mention the Trump family in starring roles as the first family, and ex-escort and model Melania playing the First Lady. This is bound to go down as a huge stinker. Can it even really be happening? Who will survive? I don't know about you, but I'd rather watch Mariah Carey in Glitter. 

GRANDE DAME

D'Arcy Drollinger is based in  San Francisco and is a actor, writer, musician, director & choreographer and fabulous drag queen, known for his high-camp / vaudeville-style stage productions that combine slapstick, farce and often drag. He was a founding member of the post-punk art band Enrique, and is an owner of the San Francisco nightclub Oasis, along with drag performer, Heklina. Drollinger is also creator of the dance-fitness brand, Sexitude, which is an ongoing body-positive, sex-positive dance/fitness program. If you've seen D'Arcy then you know she has legs up to her ya-ya, as anyone who's seen her original musical Shit and Champagne knows. She also has a keen business sense, as one of the four principals behind the year-and-a-half-old SoMa drag club Oasis, which has become a major player in S.F. nightlife in spite of a rather inauspicious start. D"Arcy claims to have started drag at the age of three...... and begged her mother to buy her a wedding dress and umbrella at a thrift store so she could be Marry Poppins. But on a more serious level, she has been doing drag since around 1993. D'Arcy's latest shtick was at the Victoria theater this season, pretty much back to back, as Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Show and Rose in The Golden Girls.

LET'S JUST CHILL

Since it is winter and it's cold, and following up on yesterday's theme of cold and snow, I and a friend were recently discussing the Ice Hotel. I have long been fascinated by it, and I am thinking of adding it to my bucket list of trips. Yes, I'm very odd, and never want to go to the " most popular spots" to travel. The ICEHOTEL is a hotel rebuilt each year with snow and ice in the village of Jukkasjärvi, in northern Sweden, and is the world's first ice hotel. After its first opening in 1990, the hotel has been rebuilt each year from December to April. The hotel, including everything from the chairs and beds, is constructed from snow and ice blocks taken from the nearby Torne River. Artists are invited to create different rooms and decorations made by ice. Besides bedrooms, there is a bar, with glasses made of ice and an ice chapel and even a restaurant. The structure remains below freezing, around −5 °C (23 °F), so best to bring a hunk of man and long johns to stay warm in!!!!

The entire hotel is made out of snow and ice, even the glasses in the bar are made of ice. Nothing like a very cold gin and tonic, I say! Talk about having a drink "in the rocks".  Each spring, around March, Icehotel harvests tons of ice from the frozen Torne River and stores it in a nearby production hall with room for over 900 tons of ice and 27,000 tons of snow. The ice is used for creating Icebar designs and ice glasses, which are used for ice sculpting classes, events and product launches all over the world while the snow is used for building a strong structure for the building. About 900 tons of what is left is used in the construction of the next Icehotel. When completed, the hotel features a bar, church, main hall, reception area, lounge, plus about 100 rooms for guests. The hotel also has an ice restaurant. The furniture is sculpted blocks of ice in the form of chairs, tables, sofas, chandeliers, just about everything. The thick walls, floor and ceiling are made of ice. Even the beds, the fittings and decoration are carved from ice. No two rooms are the same; the rooms are unique works of art.

At the Icehotel the beds are fitted with reindeer furs and guests are given sleep in polar-tested sleeping bags. There is no heating and the bedroom temperatures are constantly around −5 °C (23 °F).  I understand there’s no plumbing at the hotel, but there's a sauna, and spa that is run on the premises of the Icehotel with hot tubs outdoors. The ice suites do not have any bathroom facilities, but bathrooms for guests are found in a warm building close by. The Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi is known to be the biggest hotel of ice and snow in the world,  Each suite is unique and the architecture of the hotel is changed each year, as it is rebuilt from scratch. Each year, artists submit their ideas for suites, and a jury selects about 50 artists to create the church, Icebar, reception, main hall, lounge and suites. When spring comes, everything melts away and returns to the Torne River. The Icehotel only exists between December and April, and has been listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Sweden. The northern hemisphere's aurora borealis can be seen during the winter month in the location. Just how cool would that be to see????
There would be no time to get bored either. They have plenty to see and do beside seeing those stunning northern lights, worth the trip alone in my opinion. One can enjoy the sauna's, fishing, cross country ski, take midnight snow mobile rides, dog sled trips, reindeer sled excursions, a horseback moose safari and even ice sculpting classes.
Now I don't know about you, but I would love to go here and experience this place. I'm ready to grab my gin, my long johns, and my fur chubbies and head there!

As long as the ice bed can support me and one of the hunky locales, I'll be fine. I have also seen what they charge for the trip.

I wonder if they would accept my money made from ice???
