La Vie En Rose

Chimes at midnight. One new revenue source for plugging the Michigan budget gap comes from extending the 6% state sales tax to astrological services. I'm sure that'll raise a bundle. Ha!

Hell, it's Deborah Kerr's birthday, time to break out From Here to Eternity (1953), the all-star movie based on James Jones' 1951 novel of the same name. Might as well, because midnight seems like an eternity away.

Birthday and Vespa "girl" Angie Dickinson. Anyone remember Police Woman?

Marion Cotillard from an English language edition poster for La Môme / La Vie En Rose (2007). In the movie, she stars as Edith Piaf. Cotillard is, in fact, beautiful, whereas the Little Sparrow compensated for any aesthetic imperfections with charisma and voice. Sort of the spiritual cousin of Billie Holliday.

Monica Belluci -- hot, hot, hot. Just like Italian coffee. And cool as Italian ice.

Today's Rune: Growth.

I remember "Police Woman." I thought Angie was pretty hot back in the day. Enjoyed her in "Dressed to Kill" as well.

Ropinator the big "scandal in that movie during it's day was the waves mimicking the motion of fucking.

I think astrology tax will only work when Venus is in Aries with Scorpio rising.

I remember "Police Woman" Charles. Yeah, Angie was everybody's dream in my junior high classes and nobody had even seen "Big Bad Mamma" yet.

I had a big crush on Angie back in the day. She was pretty damn hot in Point Blank with Lee Marvin. As a child, I only knew her from Police Woman.
