We Need To Discuss David Bowie’s Upcoming Album; And How I’m Marking My Territory Again


Now listen.  I’ve done you all a giant favor by not completely wigging out every gotdamb day about David Bowie’s new album, due out in March.  We’ve established years ago that I’m a 7th grade girl on occasion (shut up!), but I need to cry into my Bowie-plastered locker about something right now.

**To be read in a high-pitched, whiny 13 year-old girl tone of voice**

Apparently some other blogger wrote about Mr. Bowie the other day.  I KNOW, right? Seriously?  I sprayed that part of the lawn already and it’s MY TERRITORY.  Oh, I won’t mention the name of the blog, but GOD!  She was all mushy about her “love” of Bowiefor years” and, well… just shut UP.  She even had the nerve to dwell upon one of the new songs on the upcoming album, The Next Day, titled Dirty Boys.  Bitch? That is MINE.  Back UP.

[Interview with Tony Visconti, Bowie’s long-time producer]

Are the non-rockers more mellow? What’s their vibe?
They’re more funky, mid-tempo songs. Very evocative. “Dirty Boys,” the second song on the album, is very sleazy.

Sleazy in what sense?
It’s dark and it’s sexy.  There’s a fantastic sax solo. You know, David plays baritone sax, but he invited his friend Steve Elson to do the baritone on this album. I think Steve was in the Saturday Night Live band. He’s a little guy, and he’s got a huge baritone sax, and he plays this dirty solo in it that sounds like stripper music from the 1950s. Old bump-and-grind stripper music . . . It wouldn’t be out of place on Young Americans. 

“Dark and sleazy song”?  Oh, it’s already been broughtin’!  That is MY neighborhood.

Girl,  I will meet your poseur ass out by the soccer field after 6th period Basic Math class.  We will have a strategic Bowie-Off, and I will win,  then I will ride off on my Huffy bike.

Hands OFF my David Bowie.

Not really.
 

Reese Witherspoon Gives Birth to a Baby Boy!

Look! We caught her as hard labor hit!

Congratulations are in order for Reese Witherspoon and her husband Tim Roth Jim Toth (I can never get that right the first time!) who welcomed a baby boy in Los Angeles.  The couple named their new son Tennessee James,which I kind of love!

Tennessee is Reese’s third child, but her first one with her second hubby. She has two other children, Ava and Deacon with her ex-hubby, Ryan Phillippe.

Ryan, Deacon and Ava Phillippe

 

Deacon and Ava are darling.  Ava is certainly Reese’s Mimi-Me–right down to the snippy, curt, disapproving expression–and that makes me love her even more.

Ooooh–it’s been awhile since our friend, Snippy the Giraffe made an appearance! Ava and Snippy are TWINSIES!

Suri Cruise Throws a Fit — Arched-Back Style!

Ummmm...

I needed a laugh this afternoon.

Take a look a Pink-Ugged Stinkfoot screaming her head off, arching her back and darn-near bringing her Tiny Daddy down onto the street.

Those of us with kids have all dealt with the arched-back fit at some point.  It’s not funny when it’s happening to you–or even the gal down at the Walmart who’s trying to keep two other grubby kids in the cart, or “buggy” (as it’s called in Louisiana, y’all) while holdin’ the screamer.  But it IS funny when it’s happening to Mr. Perfect Tommy Girl Cruise.

So yeah.  Just because it’s funny.  Oh, Suri.

Sit DOWN in that BUGGY a-fore I pinch you!” All good parents know that PINCHES under the arm aren’t heard by Nosey Parkers who want to report a bitch to CPS. Right?
