One Day She'll Darken: The Mysterious Beginnings of Fauna Hodel

so i am the night is based on One Day She'll Darken. normally i read the book first & then watch the movie/show but since iatn is mostly fiction,i figured there was no need. anyway, not even finished with the 1st chapter & already fauna is disrespecting the black woman who raised her(when her white mother refused to).i get jimmie lee was no saint but i'm not getting a good feeling at all & this is really making me not want to finish this.

also i HATE when people dont know what y'all means & keep using it. y'all = you all, meaning multiple people yet fauna types it as "yo'all" & uses it to refer to one person.i get she didnt have a huge budget for editors but not one person who read it caught that in time?

the main problem with "One Day She'll Darken" is that fauna hodel isnt an interesting person. her circumstances are interesting & her grandfather george hodel is interesting, but she isnt. i'm sure this book would have made millions in the 1950s/60s but now, who gaf if a white girl is raised by black parents?

the book was garbage & its weird that they based the show after a tiny part of it instead of just creating different characters.

charlie says movie review

i find charles manson to be pretty boring but matt smith to be incredibly creepy(his face makes my skin crawl).i feel some type of way having kevin bacons kid in this movie. hopefully she doesnt have any nude scenes. all the girls look alike so this is going to be difficult to remember who is who,especially since nobody looks like the people they are playing. i like mary harron but this is slightly boring & i dont care about these girls at all.i cant stop thinking about how much they must have smelled in real life, not how "cool" it must have been to be in a cult/commune.

its pretty funny how angry manson gets while talking to a woman with high self esteem.that was a nice touch.of course all his women were "broken" & searching for their daddy so it makes sense he wouldnt like a woman who saw him as he really was(a loser not a god).

this is when i fell asleep

next day: i guess i'm supposed to feel sympathy for leslie van houten but i really just want to slap the girls.i get why the men wanted to be a part of that cult(unlimited unprotected sex with skanks, no jobs, & free maids) but why would any sane woman want to be a sex slave/maid to those rejects? it boggles the mind.

i heard a couple of charlies songs years ago & its weird that anybody took him seriously as a musician(or why bands today are still covering his "songs"). you'd think terry melcher & dennis wilson would have better things to do.

the first hour is nothing but unwashed white people & then they introduce the 1st(only? if they dont show the black man they killed) black character(a teacher?) to be the wise one & explain why helter skelter was bullsh!t. funny how the white teacher who was in the entire movie could not do that.its like everyone else is too afraid to tell them the truth.why is the wise negro the only one talking sense?this movie is so cringeworthy. i'm so tired of the "white women are still the victims even when they are killing & cutting babies from wombs" trope.

matt smith has no charisma at all & i see no reason why anybody would want to follow or kill for his version of manson. maybe in real life all it took was bible quotes & some drugs but its not enough to be entertaining.

we have always lived in the castle movie review

i've been waiting for this movie for a while.i read the book & the lottery is a gothic classic. sebastian stan was so good in i, tonya but i think they shouldve cast a more attractive man as the sexy cousin. there is something so awkward about him. crispin glover is creepy as usual but unusually boring in this movie.30 minutes in & this is VERY slow. we have always lived in the castle is such a wasted opportunity, it wasnt spooky or goth just very very boring.

tsa is completely useless

so i go on vacation & the absolute worst part of any trip is going through tsa. its like they try to be as disrespectful/dehumanizing as possible. every single time, they stop me to touch my hair no matter how i style it.i have never heard of a black female terrorist but that doesnt stop them from wasting time making sure i feel uncomfortable.

i usually carry pepper spray & brass knuckles because i've seen first hand how the public gets off on black women being hurt(& not helping afterwards).in this life, i have to save myself. the plan is, i put the weapons in my checked baggage & go on the plane with a small purse.

i wake up super early with very little sleep & head to the airport.the tsa line is incredibly slow & its taking a long time for my purse to go through the scanner. finally i get it back & am on my way. later on i look through my suitcase & start to freak out because i couldnt find my keys/weapons. turns out they were in my purse the entire time.i was on the plane with pepper spray & brass knuckles(which is prohibited by the tsa).

seeing how easy it was for me to do that by accident makes me wonder what else is being smuggled on purse was small & half empty, either they saw my weapons & let me go through anyway or worse, they didnt see. i'm sure if i had brought an unopened bottle of water they wouldve made me throw it away but actual weapons was ok. tsa is just theater to make stupid people feel better

Lipstick on Your Collar

i dont know how i missed Lipstick on Your Collar & yet here we are. ewan mcgregor is so beyond fine that even if the plot is stupid & singing bad, these next 6 hours will be worth it.

eh, this is a "jukebox musical" & all the songs are just the 1950s originals lip synced by randoms.4 minutes in & my head is already starting to hurt.this may have been a mistake. every 2 minutes they "sing" a different song & none of them really help tell the story through the lyrics. 17 minutes in & there is this "joke".

"what do you call those little black things in between an elephants toes?"
"slow n!ggers"

this was originally a tv movie. i can see why i've never heard of this before now. another "joke" was the same character literally repeating the word bumholes 100 times. some white man actually got paid to write this garbage.

it isnt funny at all & the author is obsessed with pee/poop/butt jokes. no reason in the world why this story needs to be told in 6 hours.i love to watch ewan dance but its not worth it to waste 6 hours full of racism, bad acting, & unfunny jokes.

i was SUPER excited when i first heard of fosse/verdon. the costumes are amazing & sam rockwell is so underrated but it was missing something(what that something is, i dont know).

the casting was off.the liza minnelli(Kelli Barrett) didnt look or act like liza but if that was her singing voice definitely sounded like her. in order to really get into this show you need to know the history. they dont really say characters names or the names of the projects so you will have no idea what they are talking about(i've seen 90% of these movies & i was still lost).i cannot stand michelle williams but she was pretty good & sounds exactly like gwen.

it might as well have been called "the bob fosse show" because the first episode was all about him & his childhood.i guess gwen verdon was born fully formed on a clam shell? hopefully the rest of the season we will see more of her & less of his horrible behavior

oscars blind items

so this oscar nominated singer broke up with her man a while ago & is waiting until after the ceremony to go back to rehab. plebs think she is in love with her co star but i heard its actually his beard that she wants

that messy hoax might get a little messier.the "victim" didnt plan it alone,he had help from his ex lover, that oscar winning director

this oscar winner is pretty private about everything but his love of cocaine, crack cocaine, & anilingus. he abuses viagra & can rarely perform without it.i suspect he's gay but "going through the motions" for whatever reasons. he's usually fat in real life but loses weight for roles. fat drug addicts are always so weird to me

mrs messy & mr std

i told this story a billion years ago but i'll tell it again because this is my blog. lol.

anyhoo. i met this director & liked him a lot.we went out, he promised me a part in his new movie, & eventually he tried to rape me.he said that the only way i could be in the movie is if we had sex(of course we did not) then he replaced me with a woman who is now instagram famous(i wonder if she got his incurable std?).

years later i watched that movie & it was one of the worst i had ever seen. i completely blocked out all of this until today when i found out that one of her more famous "friends" was ALSO in this movie & now the media is trying to shame her for that(too bad they dont know the full story).i'm a little tempted to watch it again to see if it was pre nose job.

TMZ* it would be great of y'all would stop stealing my stories. pay me what you owe me

"poc solidarity": asian edition

so i was talking to an american born asian man who grew up in los angeles.he told me that he couldnt understand how trump was elected plus arguing racism was nonexistent in the north until trump.

let that sink in

usually i hear only white people telling that lie so it took me a while to recover from the shock.i told him that as a minority the fact that we are surrounded by racists* should not be new news. of course he defended them(dont all buffer races?) & that made me sad/tired. its 2019 & i really should not have to explain white supremacy at this point.

* a little detour while i elaborate on the part in pink before the #notallwhites start emailing me: if you uphold white supremacy in any way, you are a racist. the end.

anyway so i calmly explained how in the south people would call me a n!gger to my face & in the north they would wait for me to leave the room.i told him about how in ww2 californians decided to put their american born japanese neighbors in concentration camps(of course, he had no idea that happened).funny enough texas has a HUGE population of germans yet i'm 99% sure there was no american concentration camp for them. he had no reply to that & its fine.i really do need less stupid people in my life.

i am the night review

"i am the night" is basically the true story of fauna hodel & the man who may have killed the black dahlia. jefferson mays who plays dr george hodel is so funny in real life but super creepy in the role which shows how great an actor he is. it stars chris pine & india eisley(whose real life mother is olivia hussey ). i could have talked to the writer sam sheridan about the black dahlia murder all night long, he was so was one of the best screenings i've been to in years.

i HATE historical fiction but the show is really good & i cant wait to see the full season(starting tomorrow night on tnt)
