    Queer Eye for the Boston Red Sox

    I can't believe this but there was the ad on a city bus for a Bravo showing. If anyone sees this, please report.

    It was shown last Tuesday night at 10. As you know, being a diehard Yankees fan, I wasn't about to watch anyone make those "idiots" look better

    I saw it. I can't remember the players names, but there were 5 of them and their wives. Actually, most of the show was about a charity event. There was a local little league team whose baseball field was destroyed by a hurricane. So the Red Sox players were going to present a check and supposedly play an exhibition game. But the surprise for the kids was that they were going to be split up and play in the game with the Sox players.

    So the makeovers were only briefly seen, mostly grooming of facial hair and a lot of waxing! They were all very good sports. The part of the show I loved best was the excitement the kids got in playing baseball with the major league players. Some of those kids were excellent! And Kyan wasn't bad either! Of course Carson was a not a good player...but funny nonetheless.

    It was a cute show.

    I about PML when Carson was covering one of the bases and got hit by the line drive instead of catching it. That happened to me once, so I quit playing.

    I watched about 10 minutes. It was funny watching them all at a spa and being dressed by Carson. They seemed to really enjoy the pedicures, manicures and facials. Their wives and girlfriends were there too. They also had their eyebrows tweezed and backs waxed.

    I was wondering why some of them had their backs waxed. It's not as though they had 'bearskins' and it was far from unsightly.

    Carson dressed most of them in striped suits and striped shirts and/or jackets. I know Varitek was one of the players. Can't remember who else.

    Skate Sandee, I got a real kick out of it too. Plus the baseball game was a nice change of pace from the usual "spruce up the guy who looks like Bigfoot, redo his aparment which I only with somebody would do for ME, send him on a date with his girlfriend who is totally shocked at what the Fab 5 did with her boyfriend, and an engagement or some kind of romantic ending." In fact I hadn't watched it for quite a while because the formula was getting old.

    But I made a point to at least try this one and as I said, I really enjoyed it. The looks on those kids faces was priceless. Even Mean Ol' Rgirl got a little choked up.

    I also thought it was another great moment in gay/straight tolerance that the Sox 5 and the Fab 5 got together to play ball with these kids. Of course Carson was his natural queenie self, but so what? That's who he is. But on the other hand, you had guys like Kyan who played well and who you would never look at if you just saw him on the street and think "Queer." I thought it was a great lesson in tolerance for the kids and fun too.

    I'd like to see "Queer Eye" spread out and do more shows along those lines--and also come re-do my apartment. Just because I'm straight, the Fab 5 shouldn't discriminate! (My new motto.) And if they need me to be bi, just set up a dinner date for me and Angelina Jolie.

    Rgirl,

    I haven't watched it, but there is a different show called Queer Eye for the Straight Gal. It's not the original Fab 5, but could be interesting enough if it means getting the house redecorated.

    Hey, thanks, Mpal. Unforfunately, I did check out Queer Eye for the Straight Gal, but they only work with "straight gals" in Los Angeles and I live in New York. QE for the Straight Guy works strictly in the New York City, Long Island, and other areas within an hour or two of the City, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

    So, just my luck, I'm in the wrong place and I hate LA too much to move there--no offense to La-La-Landers.

    But thanks for thinking of me and my needy apartment.

    I'm contemplating a move to CA. So that's good news for me. I'm quite sure I could find a way to qualify as one needing help.

    100 Greatest Movie Quotes

    On Tuesday on either NBC or CBS (not sure) at 8 or 9 pm, they're showing a program called "The 100 Greatest Movie Quotes Ever." They've already chosen the "100 Greatest" but I wanted to know what GSers thought are the best movie quotes.

    Here are some of mine:

    Milos Foreman's "Hair" though it's a lyric by composer/lyicists Ragni & Rado.
    Berger, singing on the table to a bunch of upper class conservatives: "I've got my a$$!"


    Allison Ander's/Kurt Voss's "Sugartown."
    Liz as she's firing housekeeper/aspiring-singer/extreme-user: "And [when you leave] my diaphragm better still be in its box!"

    Young boy: "My name is not Nirvan! It's Nerve!"


    Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights."
    Unnamed actress to director Jack Horner: "Is he gonna f*** me in the a**?"
    Jack Horner, dryly: "Do you want him to?"
    Actress, dryly: "It would be nice."
    Jack Horner to actor Johnny Doe, enthusiastically: "Okay, Jack! Lock and load!"

    Scene: Young wife, Linda Partridge (Julianne Moore) of elderly dying man is in pharmacist filling prescriptions for heavy duty morphine and tranquilizers for her husband's pain as well as antidepressants for herself.
    Young Pharmacist says: "Strong, strong stuff here. What exactly you have wrong, you need all this stuff?"
    Linda Partridge: "Motherf*****..."
    Young Pharmacist: What are you talking about?
    Linda Partridge: Who the f*** are you, who the f*** do you think you are? I come in here, you don't know me, you don't know who I am, what my life is, you have the ba**s, the indecency to ask me a question about my life?
    Old Pharmacist: Please, lady, why don't you calm down?
    Linda Partridge: F*** you, too. Don't you call me lady! I come in here, I give these things to you, you check, you make your phone calls, look suspicious, ask questions. I'm sick. I have sickness all around me and you f***ing ask me about my life? "What's wrong?" Have you seen death in your bed? In your house? Where's your f***ing decency? And then I'm asked f***ing questions. What's... wrong? ...Suck my d**k! That's what's wrong. And you! You f***iing call me lady? Shame on you. [i]Shame on you.[/] Shame on both of you."

    Chippendale's-type dancer Todd Parker: "Who's [Cor]vette is that out in the driveway?"
    Porn actor Reed Rothchild (check out the spelling of "Rothchild," lol]: "DIRK'S!! I'm so jealous."
    Todd Parker: "That sh**t's jammin' man."
    Todd Parker: "Start down low with a 350 cube, three and a quarter horsepower, 4-speed, 4:10 gears, ten coats of competition orange, hand rubbed laquer with a huplane manifold. Full f***in' race cams. Whoa!"


    Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange":
    [Alex has just struck Dim on the legs]
    Dim: What did you do that for?
    Alex: For being a bastard with no manners, you haven't a dook of an idea how to comport yourself public-wise, O my brother!
    Dim: I don't like you should do what you've done and I'm not your brother no more and wouldn't want to be.
    Alex: Watch that, do watch that O Dim, if to continue to be on live thou, dost wist?
    Dim: Yarbles! Great bolshy yarblockos to you. I'll meet you with chain or nozh or britva anytime. I'm not having you aiming tolchocks at me reasonless. It stands to reason, I won't have it.
    Alex: A nozh scrap anytime you say.
    Dim: Doobiedoob, a bit tired maybe, best not to say more. Bedways is rightways now, so best we go homeways and get a bit of spatchka. Right-right?
    [Listening to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony]
    Alex: "Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!"


    Milos Foreman's "Ragtime":
    Rheinlander Waldo: "That library over there is worth millions and people keep telling me you're a piece of slime." Ragtime (1981) to Willie Conklin from Milos Foreman's "Hair."


    Jim Jarmusch's "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai:
    Ghost Dog (Forrest Whitaker) is a hit-man who works for only one man, known as his "retainer," Louie, an aging mobster who is part of a small aging mob crew, i.e., the youngest guy is maybe 65, if that young. None of the other members of the crew knows that Louie employs Ghost Dog until The Boss wants his nephew "whacked." Louie hires Ghost Dog to do the job but no one knows The Boss's nephew is "doing" The Boss's daughter. The daughter is there when the nephew gets whacked, which sends The Boss into a major attack of revenge--not against Louie, but against Ghost Dog after Louie tells The Boss about him. Ghost Dog lives his life and does his work acccording to the ancient Japanese philosophical book, [i]The Way of the Samurai[/].
    Ghost Dog: Everything around us seems to be changing, huh, Louie?
    Louie: You can f***ing say that again.

    Sonny Valerio: "If a warrior's head were to be suddenly cut off, he should still be able to perform one more action with certainty." What the f*** does that mean?
    Ray Vargo [The Boss]: It's poetry. The poetry of war.
    Louie: G***amn it. You shot me in the exact same f***ing place as last time!
    Ghost Dog: I'm sorry. I mean you no disrespect. You're my retainer. I don't want to put too many holes in you.

    Ghost Dog, coming across a two racist hunters: You know, in ancient cultures, bears were considered equal with men.
    Hunter: This ain't no ancient culture here, mister.
    Ghost Dog: Sometimes it is. [And, blam! blam! Ghost Dog blows both guys away.]

    Ghost Dog: Our bodies are given life from the midst of nothingness. Existing where there is nothing is the meaning of the phrase, "form is emptiness." That all things are provided for by nothingness is the meaning of the phrase, "Emptiness is form." One should not think that these are two separate things. [From the book, The Way of the Samurai.]


    Of course that's just the tip of my iceberg--and no, I don't have any favorite quotes from "Titanic."

    "The Comeback"

    Does anybody watch the new HBO comedy "The Comeback" starring Lisa Kudrow? I think it's hilarious and there's almost nothing on TV besides "South Park" I find hilarious.

    BTW, I'm finding Lisa Kudrow to be quite something as an actress. She played John Holmes estranged wife in "Wonderland," complete with make-up to age her. But make-up or not, I was completely impressed by her. I also thought Val Kilmer was phenomenal; definitely his breakthrough role after all these years. IMO, he was definitely overlooked for Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations. Josh Lucas, Tim Blake Nelson, Dylan McDermott, Eric Bogosian, Kate Bosworth, and Teg Levine also gave standout performances in an overall standout cast. Unfortunately the film, while haveing some great segments, somehow didn't come together to make it as strong as it should have been. But still worth renthing. And no, you don't get to see it.
