I Miss Animaniacs

I used to watch this show regularly on television during the WBKids! era... I miss those days of junk food and free time to watch frivolous cartoons.

The Prairie's Bad Girl Still Lives!

Did you ever wonder where Alison Arngrim (the famous Nellie from Little House on the Prairie) is now? She's trying her hand at comedy in her one-woman show, "Confessions of a Prairie Bitch."

Check out her very brutally honest website, also titled Confessions of a Prairie Bitch.

I've Been Awarded!

I never get an award, an honor, or even as much as a catcall...mostly because, I believe, nobody reads this blog. However, pixie over at The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly has awarded the Lounge with The Diamond Award, because, as she says: "I love reading this blog for frivolous and random entertainment. I also learn a lot about old movies, and it makes me miss living in L.A.!"

Well now I feel bad that I haven't posted in a while.

But nothing comes for free. To fully accept this award, I have to follow these rules:
1.) When you receive a Diamond Award, make a post about it on your blog.
2.) Name the blogger from whom you got it, and attach a link to that blog.
3.) Award the diamonds to seven other bloggers.
4.) Link them.
5.) Tell them that they got an award!

So since I'm a total attention whore, and I want to accept this award, here are some blogs that I'd like to pass this award on to:

1. Bedazzled is always good for finding some random, hidden treasures of the past when it comes to video and music. Imagine it like a walk down kitschy Memory Lane.

2. SorryIGotDrunk is my go-to place for anything alcoholic. Every day I need a little shot in the arm of that frat-type, raunchy humor. And Lou is my inspiration for creating this blog, so he deserves an award for creating my obsession.

3. ComedyJuice is the destination for all things funny: commercials, stand-up comedy, information of where and when to see your favorite comic...this place has it all. And it just makes me giggle every time I see the little fruit.

4. FaLaLaLaLa "preserves the memories of Christmas vinyl past." And since I'm a huge fan of Christmas, I go here for any and all of my nostalgic holiday tunes. I found this blog last year and it was a blessing.

5. And then there's The Sneeze. How do you describe this blog? It's as random as we are. And it makes me laugh every time.

6. Last but not least is A Job in Hell ...the freakiest blog in the world, but also the funniest. As Emma says, she doesn't work for the Devil, she just has to work for him. If you thought your job sucked, you should take a visit to Hell.

Damn, I can't think of one other blog...but can I take my award now?!

Worst Teaching Ever?

I never realized what horrible teaching is portrayed by Laura Ingalls (as played by Melissa Gilbert in the the 70's/80's series "Little House on the Prairie). But the clever commentary by Michael Weiss points out a huge list of negatives in Laura's flawed teaching strategy. Hilarious.

Free for Chubbies

Back in the days before Kate Moss and Paris Hilton, it was okay to be called "chubby". In fact, fat girls got discounts, and had their own "Chubby Fashion Book".

Back From Some R 'n' R!

Okay, kiddies...I'm back....rested and relaxed. But now I've got to get ready to go to work! And I'll try to catch up on my frivolous posting ASAP.

Time for a Va-cay!

Alright, kids, I have to get outta here and hit the road for a bit. Gotta catch my breath and just take some time off to relax. But check out the past and take a walk down memory lane by clicking on some past posts.

And I'll see you back here on August 14th!

Must-See Movie: Paris - When it Sizzles

Paris - When it Sizzles (1964)
Playboy screenwriter Richard Benson (played by William Holden) has been paid to write a screenplay for his boss. In his arrogance he's squandered his time in Paris drinking, tanning, and doing just about anything but writing a screenplay. Two days before the script is due he hires Gabrielle Simpson (the adorable Audrey Hepburn) to type the script. Richard and Gabrielle come up with various off-the-wall scenarios for his screenplay, called The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower. As the screenplay they write slowly develops, romance blooms between them.

This movie was filmed a decade after Hepburn and Holden's affair (during the filming of Sabrina) and apparently Holden wanted to pick things up where they left off. However, there is still visible chemistry between them.

The movie was later remade as Alex & Emma, starring Luke Wilson and Kate Hudson.

Here's the TCM trailer:
