Oh, George. My first crush. I was three years old when I fell in love with George Harrison, and he's the one true celebrity crush that endured all these many years. I still can't talk about his death of lung cancer in 2001 at the age of 58. Too tragic and too early. George was just so beautiful and his songs with the Beatles were always my favorites. The sound of his guitar; his minor-key melodies, his voice, captured my heart in 1964.
A lovely example is "If I Needed Someone" from the Rubber Soul album.
It took me all day to get this post up. I've mentioned before that sometimes I just have a difficult time writing about certain people or topics...and I realize that makes NO sense whatsoever. None. I can think about it, but I cannot get my brain to connect to my fingers. I wish I had a patch cord from my brain. That would be far more efficient.
In the meantime, I give to you (again?) one of my favorite tributes to George, with quite possibly one of the best guitar solos ever--by Prince.
You are missed everyday, dear George. We have your and Olivia's wonderful Dhani.
Thank you for leaving a glorious legacy in your son...he's a blessing.
This new Rolling Stones video was supposed to debut at midnight EST tonight, but looky who's got it (uhh...thanks Rolling Stone Magazine!).
Just like the classics Gimme Shelter and Sympathy For The Devil, we are challenged as listeners and viewers with the words and images in Gloom and Doom. Listen to it several times.
Oh, hey...if you haven't yet watched Crossfire Hurricane on HBO, I suggest you do so. Record it; you'll want to watch it more than once. The narration by 'the boys' during clips from the Altamont tragedy is riveting and terrifying. Even though you already think you know what transpired--you don't know everything.
Here's one horror remake that I really think might work. Even though I am feeling an Angelina Jolie "Girl Interrupted" Lisa-vibe in this poster up there, I suppose that comparison is never a bad thing.
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Julianne Moore) and her daughter Carrie (Chloe Grace Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Judy Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargensen (Portia Doubleday), but only Chris' friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets her actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to the prom. After a cruel prank by her peers at the prom, Carrie is pushed to the limit and unleashes telekinetic havoc.
I hear-tell Carrie doesn't just take revenge on the high school this time. I love Chloe and I really love Julianne Moore for taking this kind of a cray-cray role as Carrie's mom. And Judy Greer?? This should be bloody good fun.
Carrie is set to be released on March 15, 2013
Oh, and PLEASE let Julianne screech the iconic line "They're all gonna LAUGH at you!".
I generally enjoy anything Brad Pitt related. I can't tell you how many times I watched 'Cool World' when I was younger (I didn't know any better okay?), but this photo shoot. Pitt appears in the October/November issue of Interview magazine sporting dreads and eyeliner in the shoot by Steven Klein. The two have done some great work together, check out that famous set of him and Angelina playing family before they officially hooked up that was done for W back in 2005. I still need to gather my thoughts about this one.
In the interview with friend Guy Ritchie, he talks politics and his future in the film business. He has dropped hints about "retiring" over the past year, but really wants to transition into doing more behind the scenes things.
"I’d rather be behind the camera. As a producer, obviously, you’re part of a team that brings the story to the screen. It wouldn’t be there if you didn’t champion it or if you and a group of people weren’t championing it. I like that."1
Pitt has also become more picky about the roles that he accepts, and his family has a lot to do with that decision:
"I want it to be worthy enough of a story to leave the family, you know? They’re everything," the 48-year-old star told Ritchie, his director on 2000’s 'Snatch.' "The family is first . . . I also don’t want to embarrass them."
In terms of politics, he is still a big supporter of President Obama even though his upcoming movie 'Killing Them Softly' is seen as an attack on Obama's Presidency
"Well, I just want to avoid confusion with this film and say I’m a big supporter of Obama, and I think he’s our best answer for the next four years."
Just in case you were worried.
You can read the rest of the interview, and see Brad looking like an evil hotel caretaker, a Coor's drinking hot piece of bad boy ass, and a few more "characters" at Interviewmagazine.com.

Donatella Versace offered up another sexy Versace collection, but this one was a bit more understated than previous seasons. Instead of body-hugging red carpet ready gowns, there were flow-y dresses paired with gladiator heels, very South Beach.
There were also a number of lace embroidered pieces, including a very cool pair of fitted white jeans.
The show closed with a couple of colorful 70's inspired numbers, showcasing the bright hues Gucci and Moschino also showed on the runway.
I especially liked the short, gold disco dress worn by model Kati Nescher.
