Marilyn Monroe in an unused costume for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

This jeweled belt and feather fan are part of the original William “Billy” Travilla designed costume Marilyn was to have worn during the "Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend" number from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” The publicity surrounding the recent discovery that Marilyn was the nude model in the “Velvet Dreams” calendar photo rendered this particular costume too revealing. The pink gown worn in the film, also designed by William “Billy” Travilla, was a last minute replacement. (x)

E voila, Black Diamonds in Moulin Rouse is not as far off as people may think ;)

Tempted? Freaking tempted!

I push everyone away but in a way I’m doing them a favor

So… I do this too but… remember Elsa and how that turned out for her. I may kind of sort of have self identified on this part. And there may have been a bit of trying to reconnect this year after trying to “save” people from association with me.

Accept that those who continue to want to be part of your life want to be. There are exceptions but they are called exceptions for a reason :)

So CNN just showed a report on the royal visit to New Zealand, which not only actively mocked the cultural traditions of the Maori, comparing the haka to the mating dance of the emu, but also denigrated the cultural traditions of many other groups as being ‘native’ and generally silly. It’s this kind of shoddy journalism and blatant racism that perpetuates an idea of multiculturalism being some kind of childish joke and trivialises the identity of 15% of NZ’s population. If you want to do something about it, there is a complaint here, and the petition associated with it here.  .

This makes me so mad on so many levels.  Absolute ignorance towards the culture and traditions of the Maori people.  Perhaps she should educate herself more on the traditions and importance of things such as the pōwhiri and the Hongi - But I guess this was all done for cheap laughs.  I am happy to see the petition is doing well.

What a disgrace to journalism.  Thanks for mocking the culture of this country. :<

Fighting unhelpful typing conditions because this just pressed so many “a-hole alert” buttons.

$#@QQ^*&#$@@!Q

Cheap laughs areone thing but this is just so, I keep wanting to find some link to “this was bad taste satire that backfired” because… even as bad as that would be…. just…. howwwww…

Will sign petition once at a full keyboard and not half asleep.
