David Mamet's Master Class Memo to the Writers of iThe Unit/i

Dear darling blog followers:

Here's some kick-ass advice from David Mamet about writing drama.

Some juicy tidbits extracted to perhaps tantalize:

David Mamet’s memo to the writers of The Unit (caps in situ):

THE JOB OF THE DRAMATIST IS TO MAKE THE AUDIENCE WONDER WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. NOT TO EXPLAIN TO THEM WHAT JUST HAPPENED, OR TO *SUGGEST* TO THEM WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. […]

HERE ARE THE DANGER SIGNALS. ANY TIME TWO CHARACTERS ARE TALKING ABOUT A THIRD, THE SCENE IS A CROCK OF SHIT.

ANY TIME ANY CHARACTER IS SAYING TO ANOTHER “AS YOU KNOW”, THAT IS, TELLING ANOTHER CHARACTER WHAT YOU, THE WRITER, NEED THE AUDIENCE TO KNOW, THE SCENE IS A CROCK OF SHIT.

Interesting? Read the whole memo by clicking here:


Love and Kisses,

Your adoring,

Squiggy

P.S. should we write some stuff and film it?

Westwood Condemns Consumerism After London Show - ABC News

My fave designer said stuff today as the London Fashion Week begins. 'Stop buying clothes,' she exhorts us! But will we be able to? 


Westwood Condemns Consumerism After London Show - ABC News

 A pithy excerpt from the article:

"Stop all this consumerism," said Westwood, the former high priestess of punk who has increasingly used her catwalk shows to spotlight her concern about climate change.
"I just tell people, stop buying clothes. Why not protect this gift of life while we have it? I don't take the attitude that destruction is inevitable. Some of us would like to stop that and help people survive," she said.

Rock On, my sister!

Post Valentines Day Revelation

After many years of experimentation, I have firmly determined that, for me, not having a partner for Valentines Day is far and away superior to having one. The vast oceans of love from my friends and companion animals blasts the paltry love offered by the partners of yesteryear, out of the water. Word.

A A A Acme's Famous Handmade Deodorant


A A A Acme's Famous Handmade Deodorant
Start with I/2 Cup shea butter
Mix in I/4 Cup coconut oil and heat until melted to a liquid in the microwave.
Mix in about 2 Tbs baking soda and about 30 drops of your favorite essential oil (Lavender?) 
Pour into an ice cube tray 
Freeze

Pop one cube at a time into a clean covered container and keep in the bathroom. I like to place it on a 1/2 inch bed of baking soda. 
That way if I feel I need a little extra protection I either roll the cube into extra baking soda or I add a pinch right over the deodorant I applied.

It's impossible to have odor when you use this marvelous deodorant. I dare you.

Tattooing One Dot for Every Casualty during Operation Iraqi Freedom

Tattooing One Dot for Every Casualty during Operation Iraqi Freedom

Artist Wafaa Bilal is getting tattooed during a 24 hour performance on March 8, 2010. The fundraiser is to provide money to American and Iraqi children who have lost their parents in the war. 4000 red dots represent US soldiers who lost their lives, and more than 100,000 'invisible' civilians who lost their lives represented by ultraviolet ink. It will be a full-back tattoo.

OMG! So hilarious! Menstruation is THE grossest! Women put something called a pad near the most disgusting place in the world. Women have vaginas and they bleed! Oh wow! I can't stop laughing!

Alice in Wonderland gets the Tim Burton treatment

WE'RE ALL FANS - The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards

Let's not forget to watch or record the Grammys this coming Sunday night! If you like the Grammys, that is. If not, I'll watch it for everybody else. I get my fashion/style fix for juicy hair and clothing ideas on all the awards shows, but the Grammys are off the pendulum fulcrum. Even if I don't agree with choices made, I'm enthralled with the going-out-on-a-limb-ness of it all. Plus, Music is Magic. All Hail!

WE'RE ALL FANS - The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards

Vegan Schmegan



Y'all know I never prosthelytize about vegan/vegetarianism. Ever. I firmly believe that everybody does the best they can in all areas of life and other people are far more cutting edge and conscientious than I am in lots of arenas. This link is a visual and textual answer to questions and statements that peeps ask and rejoin me all the time, "Well, what the hell DO you eat?" or ''That food tastes like ass," or "My doctor (AMA) says you can't get enough protein," etc. The pictures are amazing and the recipes; hedonistic. Check it.

There's a New Knicker in Town

Here's something I found tonight in 'Women's Wear Daily': It's a new Marilyn (as in Monroe) line of panties. The way I read the initial article was that these panties would protect our valuable and tender parts from the grime and what-have-you on the subway, bus, public bench and what-not. They're made to look like the full pantie that Marilyn was wearing when she stepped on the subway grate and her gorgeous white dress flew up. Full coverage but supposedly sleek under summer dresses and allows for the occasional cartwheel or celebratory twirl without exposing images which you'd like to keep to yourself. As I got deeper into other articles they began to sound more like it is full coverage and sleek, all right, but is designed more for keeping the subway, bus, public bench safe from you! Sort of a training pantie, pre-Depends, or maybe less dramatic, for women who have heavy periods, etc. Let's think of it as a pro-choice pantie. If you need it or want it to protect you from the environment or to protect your environment from you, let's just say, 'there's a new knicker in town.'

Lady Gaga's Stylist

    
I woke up to find this marvelous article, sent via Switzerland via New York Times via my best friend in the very early 70's when I lived in Boulder, Cynthia. Our global village in action. Four of my favorite topics: my friends, fashion, art and Lady Gaga.

happy birthday to blog


Hey! Happy Birthday Baby Blog! I'm gettin' my blog on and takin' it on the road. Couldn't wait any longer. Like lotsa people I have strong opinions, lotsa vintage to greenmarket ideas; from the practical to the divine to the profane and beyond, that are all jonzin for release.


I've been a makeup stylist in the film and television industry for 26 years, therefore, beauty and style are always boiling and marinading, splashing around my juicy virtual lab. Even in my sleep. I'll splash some of it around here. Keeps it in one place.


I'll throw in some musings, some articles I adore, and I'll even select some lucky (haha) commenter's questions to answer. Oh heck, while I'm at it, I'll give advice. I'm no Cary Tennis but I am gifted in the art, my friends report.


Aren't you excited? I am. Off we go!
