first real picture of us


first selfie on this blog??? 😱


More beast than boy, that one, puffed up with pride and bloodlust…


“The Many Moods of Kurdt Kobain” from Kurt’s journals. And now the stories of these pictures : the first man was reknowned in real US freak shows and played his character of human skeleton in Freaks and was Peter Robinson. The second one was french and was in freak shows as a leaving mummie, Dominique Castagna died of self injuring gunshot wound. Finally the two last are the same man, a reknowned american skeleton man from Lima, Ohio, Percy Pape. Then the freak show poster where Percy Pape was…and the drawing of Jack Skellington, because I am sure that Tim Burton get his inspiration from Percy Pape.
I am dreaming of Kurt meeting Tim Burton…because I feel that he would have love “The Melancholy death of the Oyster boy and other stories”.

Ok, so I’m always quite sad/disappointed that Marilyn’s last movie Something’s Got To Give (1962) was never finished. Because her role in the movie was different from the dumb blonde, ingenue roles she played before, here she was a wife and mother. It was also the first time she used her real voice for a picture and not her breathy Marilyn one and she was stunning. She had just lost some weight, and so was at the lowest weight in her adult life, thirty six years old and radiant. I can only imagine what kind of career was still in front of her. 

Luckily there’s the documentary Marilyn Monroe-The final days, which is on youtube too. The documentary is pretty good since it’s rather objective and sticks mostly to facts. The last 36 min of it (starting at 1h 16) are a reconstruction of the unfinished movie and really worth watching!
