trash-priestess asked:

(Can I send 2?) Aphrodite and Demeter; you can pick which one you like better if you don't wanna answer both!

I’ll answer ‘em both, don’t worry man! lol

Aphrodite: What you find attractive in a person?
When I meet someone, things that I find attractive are having fun when talking to someone, and being comfortable with that person. Of course, some people can be shy or see themselves as not being good at conversation (which I understand), but I can still enjoy all the times we would talk. Oh boy, and if they’re funny and/or have a cool sense of humor, you’re super awesome.

Demeter: Favorite season and why?
My favorite season is winter because it gets cold as a conservative’s heart and I really love being in cold weather compared to the swampy-ass heat of Florida. Plus, I like wearing my huge plaid jacket because it’s huge and I feel great wearing it with my buffalo hunting cap.

Swampy’s #Florida says Happy Jerry Lewis Birthday!

Jerry Lewis steps into his 89th birthday today and we have him to thank for a outstanding pictorial tour of The Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach, circa 1960. The Fontainebleu is the backdrop of Lewis’ film ‘The Bellboy’. An unplanned film that Lewis wrote while on a plane to Miami Beach to perform at the hotel.
Paramount Pictures was wrangling with Lewis over his film 'The Ladies Man’ about when it would be shown in the theaters. Lewis pushed hard for a December 1960 release. Paramount pushed back and said they’d do it only if Lewis would deliver one of his contracted films to be shown in theaters the Summer of 1960. Lewis finds this out as he is on his way to The Fontainebleu to perform his club act for a few weeks in February & March of 1960. Such club shows usually doubled as a Florida vacation for performers to Florida. Not for Lewis.
Lewis immediately started constructing a film with a setting that he would be immediately nearest to - The Fontainebleu. Thus 'The Bellboy’ was born.
