forgotten tv shows: bill and ted's excellent adventures 1992

the year before this was made they had an animated version of bill and ted's excellent adventures & when that was cancelled they decided to make a live action version. why? i have no idea. i remember watching the cartoon & HATING it as a child but i had no idea this tv show existed before a couple of months ago.

its a remake of a remake. i can already tell this is going to be cringe & i should be drunk before starting. obviously keanu reeves & alex winter cannot be replaced(& these fug actors are pretty annoying with their exaggerated impressions) but i did laugh a couple of times. instead of going back into history, the phone book goes into fictional places & comic books(which is dumb & i can see why the show failed). you cant improve the original bill & ted's, hence why all the sequels/shows were bad. this was ok, not a complete waste of time

an olive branch

i didnt read this novel but you can.¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . i didnt care then & i dont care now. y'all can stop with the fake apologies, now

Re: An apology and extending an olive branch. Hi Dallas, I hope you're doing well. This is Lacey from Rock of Love. I'm probably the last person you want to hear from, but I want to take a moment to apologize to you, and extend an olive branch. I'm going to send this, and then write more to you...
As I said, I first would like to start out by giving you an apology. I know that I annoyed the crap out of you on the shows, and at times, really made you upset and angry. I want to take this moment to say "I'm sorry" to you, and to accept responsibility for any pain I have caused you. That was never my intention. I always thought you were, and are, a strong, confident, and "bad ass" woman. When I was on the Vh1 shows, I was very much intentionally playing the "villain" character, with encouragement from the producers. I knew it would get me far in the game (on both shows), and I knew it would make for funny, entertaining television. The reason I chose people like you and Jes to give "a hard time" to, was because I knew that each of you were strong women who could handle it, and could handle me. I knew you were tough and confident, and I knew that of the two of us, I was going to come across as the "bad guy".
Your name has come up quite a few times on the podcast, and I will let you know that nothing bad was ever said about you. If anything, I describe you as being "an incredible adversary" to me. You were such an iconic character, and an integral part of those shows! Not only do I think that, but the fans are well aware of it, too. Fans of the Vh1 shows and fans of the podcast keep asking over and over, "When's Dallas coming on?" You are really important to a LOT of people.... maybe more than you even know.(?)
I was hoping, at the very least, I can talk to you over the phone, so that I can give you a proper apology, (apologizing over text is cheap). I also want to listen to what you have to say to me with an open mind. My hope is that maybe enough time has passed and that maybe you and I can mend this, and hopefully be on friendly terms... or at least be cordial.
The energy and vibe of the podcast is very different from that on Rock of Love. On the podcast, it is all about positivity. If you have your doubts, then I invite you to ask Sam, Brandi M, and Big John about their experiences on the podcast. It is important to me that everyone comes across in the best light possible, because I feel that it is a direct reflection on me, and on the podcast. The fans of the podcast are incredibly kind as well, to all of my guests. My guests are welcome to promote any projects, charities, products, etc, that they may be working on, and each episode of the podcast averages over 10,000 views.
I would love to have you on, as a guest, if you would be open to it. But first, at the very least, I am hoping you will allow me to call you on the phone, so that I can listen to anything that you have to say to me, and apologize for hurting or angering you. I do think you're a good woman. I mean that. I don't reach out like this, to people who I don't respect, and I do have respect for you.
Thanks so much for reading this. I appreciate your time.
I wish you all the best, Lacey Sculls

brave new world

i read this book years ago & i dont remember the exact plot but i do remember how creepy he predicted our "sex positive" future. sex positive is in quotes because nsa promiscuity only benefits men but thats a conversation for another day.

i LOVE jessica brown findlay & was pissed when she left harlots to film this. 3 episodes in & i'm pretty sure this show is only 10% of the book "brave new world" & 90% the imagination of whatever white guy they picked to write the script. i cant stand it when they take a book & then only use the name not the actual plot(because most americans are too stupid to read the book then assume the tv show is "true").

pro: the 1990s/1970s style "futuristic" wardrobes
con: alden ehrenreich ?

i keep trying to get into alden but there is no there there. he's not attractive & ive seen no kind of personality in his work.its like they ran out of bland white guys & he was the last one in the room so he got cast. i slowly die inside every time bernard marx wears his "futuristic" 1970s style leisure suit. i really hope those "willie dynamite" does "gattaca" costumes werent an accident.

its fun to see demi moore go back to her white trash roots, though i wish they gave her a more realistic & less distracting looks like its about to slide off in every scene. the savagelands traditions part shouldve been longer. idgaf about homegirl from harlots protecting the land & pretending to be native american(its gross but i'm sure white people dont see how gross it is plus she's english so i doubt she understands how bad it makes her look).

ed stoppard is so gorgeous & sinister. its bizarre he isnt a huge star by now. i feel like this didnt need to be almost 9 hours since the most interesting characters were killed off pretty quickly.i would probably watch a 2nd season despite saying that.

blind item: geriatric fvckery edition

there is some "new" beef between the italian acting legend & the lacefront wig wearing plastic surgery addict. they've been low key feuding for decades,wig says the italian had him blackballed  & i can almost believe that. 30 years ago they were in a movie with a former child star who was ready to shed her good girl image.

the legend kept trying to flirt with the former child star but she rebuffed his advances. one day they go to their trailers to change clothes for the next scene. the italian went into her trailer unannounced while wearing nothing but a robe(with absolutely nothing underneath). turns out wig was there with the former child star plus another crew member. the italian was embarrassed enough to leave without getting what he came for

contagion 2011 review

i HATE horror/pandemic movies,so i was dreading watching contagion. plus the fact that it stars goop really made me not want to see it.but since this is very timely & i'm bored/drunk, here we go!!!!!

i didnt know it was filled with so many celebrities. "i need no one to know until everybody knows". wow, thats creepy & hits too close to home. marion cotillard is so underrated. its very human to want to "run away from death" but you cant outrun death.when lockdown 1st started i watched the masque of the red death & it made me sadder than it should have. death follows you wherever you go & no amount of money will stop it.

i really cant stand matt damon so its amazing i'm enjoying this movie so much.most of the actors(not goop or damon) are SO talented. jude law walking around in his robot/hazmat suit is a whole mood. its funny to see how fast the fake veneer of society falls away(in real time and in the movie). y'all were always violent savages with neanderthals for ancestors..........

lace miniseries 1985 part 2

the description in the listing: "In Lace, p0rno princess-turned-movie queen Lili (Phoebe Cates) embarked on a relentless quest to find the mother who had abandoned her in infancy. Now it's Daddy's turn. Cates and many of the original stars of Lace return to the opulent world of jets, jewels and heartbreak in Lace II.This time, Lili's mother is kidnapped by Southeast Asian guerillas and held for a million-dollar ransom - or else. Lili enlists the aid of her mother's school friends to hunt for her unknown father, hoping he can meet the ransom before the soldiers fulfill their deadly threat. Her only clue: her mother's book, a roman a clef with three different versions of who Lili's father may be. So many daddies, so little time!"

unfortunately(fortunately?) i read the wiki before i started watching & it said what the ending was for this one. phoebe stopped using that stupid accent so this is a bit better. lili asks her mom who her dad is & the mom gives her a book & tells her to read it(instead of just saying).i wonder if the people writing these scripts have ever had a real conversation before.

instead of just telling the rest of the story, they are going back to when she was pregnant & reshooting the old scenes with the new actress playing the mom :-(. i get that might have been needed pre internet but i just saw this story yesterday so its boring. despite saying that,this one is less slow than the 1st & i didnt have to stop it for hours at a time.

lace miniseries 1984 part 1

i have ALWAYS wanted to watch this but for some reason its never on tv & the dvds are hard to find. i ended up getting lace & part 2. i find it bizarre that Phoebe Cates would give up her career to scrub kevin klines skidmarks or that she'd be typecast as the girl next door, even though i loved "drop dead fred" as a child. i will let the listings description get you ready for this mess because i cannot.

"Beautiful, embittered Lili (Phoebe Cates) has clawed her way from p0rno princess to international film idol. She has money, fame, everything she wants - everything except revenge. Abandoned as a baby, Lili is determined to find, and destroy, her long-lost mother. She's narrowed the candidate list down to three former boarding-school friends, all of whom have gone on to exciting and privileged lives. And one of whom is about to be very, very sorry she left little Lili all those years ago. A starry cast sweeps through two and a half decades of exquisite excess in this high-fashion, high-drama, utterly delicious emotional wallow based on Shirley Conran's bestseller. Sharpen your claws."

ok, betches, lets go!

idk what kind of accent phoebe is trying to do but its not working. she gets out of the car & the peasants riot & act like theyve seen the beatles. people arent freaking out like that for p0rnstars now, so i doubt all those people wouldve known(or cared) who she was then. the moms are supposed to be teenagers in the beginning but they all look 35. of course, they cast a white guy wearing pancake as an arab. even in a film that doesnt have black people in it(i presume), y'all still cant leave out the racism,huh?

i love brooke adams but her "english" accent is a mess as well.its like they werent even trying. i'm getting really tired of these "he raped me & i loved it" tropes. phoebe's accent has changed from "french with mouth full of marbles" to generic mexican. she is too gorgeous for such nonsense.they really shouldve hired an accent(and acting) coach for them.

its too slow & not as messy or glamorous as i assumed it would be. phoebe stopped trying to the accent at all.the "arab" guy has dark makeup on his face but not his hands.this is depressing me.i didnt know it would be so much about the moms. idgaf about the moms.

so lili has sex with a boy who she knows could be her half brother & is planning to have sex with a man she knows may be her father. is this what white people consider revenge? seems more of a self drag to me.i get life was different in the 1980s but was incest less gross then? i'm just confused & i cant get into this at all.

i cant say that i regret watching this but i doubt i will watch it was just way too slow.

i will be reviewing lace part 2 next week

to set the record straight

this will probably be the last time i bring this up. i've been getting a LOT of emails from randoms asking me to be on a certain podcast. that will never happen. now that the podcast has changed,i got an email from my "friend" asking me to be on it. that will never happen. to me, friends are people who are there for you not just when they need something.

so y'all can stop bothering me. its not going to happen. ever. find a new hobby to occupy your time

eta: the "enemy" just sent me a friend request. this is pathetic

blind item: that kinky movie star guy

this "happily" married patrician movie star "respects her too much" to ask his uptight white wife for bdsm but goes online for his kinks. he catfishes with fake pix on tinder to try out his knots on random black women.i guess his wife stopped going to the sex clubs with him for threesomes & now he's playing alone........

i'm not talking about christian grey(& unfortunately i'm not the one he had sex with............)

eta: i heard they seperated because she caught him with a kinky escort(not because he was cheating but because the escort is black).plus she hated he is pro black lives matter. its about to get real messy
