This short 1 minute
parodied song, The Girl That I Marry, is turned into a lesbian song, a sort of ode to butch lesbianism. The songwriter, Lisa Ben (a pen name playing off the word les/bian), was born Edythe D. Eyde, and she created the first known lesbian publication in the world, Vice Versa in the 1940s. She was also active in lesbian bars as a musician.
The Girl That I Marry by Lisa Ben The girl that I marry will probably be as butch as a hunk of machinery. The girl I idolize will wear slacks with flat fronts, tailored shirts and bow ties. She’ll walk with a swagger and wear short hair And keep me entranced with her tomboy air. Instead of cruisin’ I’ll be usin’ Her shoulder to lean on while snoozin’ A faint hearted fairy, the girl I marry won’t be!
The Girl That I Marry Original Lyrics
by Irving Berlin The girl that I marry will have to be as soft and as pink as a nursery. The girl that I call my own will wear satins and laces and smell of cologne. Her nails will be polished and in her hair she’ll wear a gardenia and I’ll be there ‘Stead of flittin’ I’ll be sittin’ next to her and she’ll purr like a kitten. A doll I can carry the girl that I marry must be.
Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander team up again in Ben Wheatley’s Freakshift
announced today that Armie joins the cast of Freakshift. The movie will star
his Man from U.N.C.L.E co-star and Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander, and
will be directed by Ben Wheatley, who he worked with on Free Fire.
to Deadline, Freakshift is an “action
thriller about a band of misfit cops who hunt down and kill nocturnal
underground monsters”. Armie will play Alicia’s love interest in the film,
while she will incarnate the lead female role.
this year, Ben Wheatley talked with the Independent about the film, describing
a bit of the plot:
“We should be making Freakshift this year which
is a sci-fi film that Amy [Jump] and I have written and has been in development
for about five or six years,” he said, “so it looks like that’s finally going
to happen. “It’s about women with shotguns fighting giant
crabs.” he added. “There you go, it sells itself.”
Freakshift, Armie adds another genre to his already very rich filmography. Needless
to say we are very excited to see him work again with the two talents that Ben
and Alicia are.
can you imagine, Aunt May and Uncle Ben (or maybe his parents, I’m not sure about Peter’s timeline… I’ll go with Uncle Ben for the feels though) taking Peter to Stark Expo so he can maybe catch a glimpse of his hero, Tony Stark?
Uncle Ben buys him an Iron Man mask and a little toy repulsor and he’s just bouncing up and down with excitement, gawking at all the cool inventions, but mostly he can’t wait to see Tony
And then he’s disappointed when he hears that Tony isn’t there, that Hammer Industries is doing the big exhibition, and he’s just so crushed
THEN Iron Man crashes the party and he’s pointing and smiling, going “Look, Uncle Ben!!! That’s him!!!”
The Hammer drones start attacking, and Uncle Ben tries to get Peter out of there, but he loses him in the chaos and Peter spots one of the drones
He’s a kid, he doesn’t really know better, but he does know what Iron Man would do
He raises his hand, fires up his little toy repulsor, and then WHAM
The Hammer drone falls in a pile of sparks and metal, and Peter turns around, startled, only to see Iron Man, Tony Stark himself, standing there
“Nice work, kid,” he says before flying off to save the day, just as Ben finds Peter and scoops him up to take him to safety
And Peter is just in awe. Iron Man thanked him. Tony Stark thought that he helped.
