Whatever happened to Fay Wray?
That delicate, satin-draped frame?


Actress Fay Wray, best known for her role in 1933 movie King Kong, died on Sunday. She was 96. Born Vina Fay Wray in Alberta, Canada, on September 15, 1907, she was one of six children. Her family moved to the United States when she was three years old. Wray was barely in her teens when she began her silver-screen career as a extra. She went on to be regularly cast as a heroine in silent movies, scoring her breakthrough in 1928's The Wedding March. In the early 1930s she made a number of horror movies, including Doctor X and The Vampire Bat, and became known as Hollywood's first "scream queen". After those movies, Wray won praise for her King Kong character's combination of sex appeal, vulnerability and lung capacity as she was stalked by the beast to the top of New York's Empire State Building. But her career fell into decline following King Kong and she retired from movies in 1942 after her second marriage. In 1953, she made a comeback in character roles and made movies until 1958 and worked in television into the 1960s. Wray had a daughter, Susan, by her first marriage to John Monk Saunders, and two children, Robert and Vicky, with Robert Riskin.

Who knows?

Surely it's a question that should have been on everybody's lips these last few years...

Apparently, according to this site, he's most recently been seen on the 'Bernie Mac Show' - whatever that may be...

*shrugs*

Oh, and I found this on another site:

Flava Flav And Ecko Team Up On Talking Alarm Clock
Posted on Monday, November 24 @ 02:47:07 PST by MusicMan

Public Enemy's Flavor Flav and Ecko have teamed up to produce the 'Legends Flavor Flav Talking Alarm Clock'. The $85 clock, available in three colors, features five alarm phrases, including 'Bass In Your Face', 'Get Up Get Down', 'Yo G Yo', and 'Yeaa Boy'.

It had to end in tears...

I thought he and DJ Jazzy Jeff were married. I thought he was his wife. I'm so disillusioned.

*hugs*

Don't let it get you down. Worse things happen in the world of 'pop' - remember that Tori Amos/suckling pig incident?!

Launchcast is an online streaming radio btw - mines configured to play EVERYTHING I LIKE (mostly)...currently playing 'The Mercy Seat'.

Awesome!!

Oh, so it is like a radio for the computer. That's neat!

Tori Amos is kind of a tampon-head.

Let me guess - you're thinking about the colour of the hair, right?

My sister and I, when we were innocent and little, used to steal our mothers tampons and draw eyes on them... Used them as toy mice...

And those 'fit two tampon in' plastic handbag cases used to get used as fake walkie-talkies a lot...

I think I'd better shut up now in case I begin to scare you lol!

Well, the hair and the fact that listening to her music kind of reminds me of a woman who used to read poetry about her vagina and how sad it is to be raped, only she meant 'how sad it is to have to share the world with men'. I also think she's whiny.

Oh god...stuff like that god-awful 'vagina monologue' type stuff that feminist/bald female actors always keep a copy of in their bag??

Sharing the world with men *can* be a good thing - so long as they let you drink too much red wine, don't think you're weird for sniffing books (bookshop habit of mine) and put 'creative' make-up on them...

Ahem.

Yes, Tori Amos is interminably whiny - one of these days someone should put the poor wench out of her misery...

Books smell good. Sniffing books is not an odd thing.

[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<lj-user=vashe>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

<lj-user=vashe> flicks the corner pages to get the scent...

I open them wide enough not to bend the spine (I HATE that) and take a good long draught of the middle section. Different ages of print have different scents, you know. Especially ones with colour plates!

I'm going to have to go into town this week to buy more bookshelves - since I've moved back to my parents (eep!) I find I have enough books to start my own library - and nowhere to put them:/
