1998: Paul reflects on his decision to compose the score for The Family Way (as well as John’s hurt over it). (Note: This footage was taken from an A&E special called Paul McCartney’s Musical Ways, but I’m fairly certain that this interview was the same one conducted by Michel Laverdière circa 1995, which has been previously quoted here.)
PAUL: For me it was very interesting, because it allowed me something of my own. You know, like women these days want to get away from their husbands and get a life on their own. It was a bit that. Because with The Beatles, it was a bit like a marriage. So it was quite good to just get away, do something of my own. I think that if I’d known John was disturbed by it, I would have just asked him to join me. We could have done it. It would have been no problem. But I liked the idea of doing something solo – just for a change, ’cause everything we did was a four-headed monster. Wherever we went, there were four people. We looked the same, we dressed the same, and we sang the same. So it was quite nice to get away. It was a good break.
my uncle taking me to visit her law firm growing up, watching legally blonde too many times, looking up to women like michelle and hillary, taking pre-law classes which really interested me, and of course living in a post-election world where i feel like i *need* to do something to help the people affected the most.
I did one of these for Jinkx's concert so I figured I'd do another for BOTS:
-Pearl was an absolute little dork. She spend a solid minute or two waving and smiling and the audience screamed the whole time. She had a very robotic, mysterious beauty to her in person. A very hypnotic beauty.
-There was almost a fist fight in front of me which is always fun
-Michelle came out and gave a little speech at the beginning about respecting gay history which was really nice. She is shockingly beautiful in real life. I couldn’t stop staring at her!
-The opening number was so great
-Adore came out first and sang two songs. She was so adorable and had cat ears in her wig. She sounds so amazing in person!
-Ginger was next and did a full, hilarious dance/lipsync number to Hello by Adele. She is super cute and really really funny in real life btw.
-Sharon did a Bowie tribute and a tribute to Cerrone and it was very touching. She is actually so breathtakingly beautiful in person. My eye was drawn to her the entire time she was on stage. Super sweet too. She was blowing kisses and thanking fans at the end.
-Fame sang Rubber Doll and sounded fabulous. She is so fucking gorgeous I can’t even put it into words.
-My absolute fave of all time Violet (I’m so not biased😜) did a strip tease all the way down to a thong and I lost my shit. Violet literally does not look real that’s how beautiful she was. The TV screen does not do her justice.
-Jinkx and Michelle did an adorable duet
-Katya came out, legs spread eagle of course, and talked nonsense and I loved every second of it. She is always super sarcastic about looking like a real woman but she actually really and truly does. Absolutely beautiful.
-Snatch Game was absolutely nuts. Alaska was Lady Bunny, Courtney was Caroline North from North Carolina, Sharon was Caitlyn Jenner, Jinkx was Liza Minnelli, and Ginger was Michelle Visage (I might do a whole separate post about Snatch Game)
-Phi Phi O'Hara came out unexpectedly to ask a Snatch Game question and ended up proposing to his boyfriend. The entire venue went absolutely wild!!
-Jiggly Caliente came out at one time too!
-There was a Rocky Horror tribute with Michelle as the lips at the beginning (do they have a name?), Alaska as Riff Raff, Courtney as Janet, and Sharon as Frank-n-Furter
-I watched Sharon and Courtney the whole time during that part coz Sharon kept on lifting up Courtney’s skirt and trying to kiss her
-Manila did a really cute dance as Marvin Martian. Ok she is the cutest little bean ever! Her smile can light up a room!
-Alaska did a slow, acoustic version of Anus, then did a battle with some Storm Troopers (Courtney came out in her wings to give Lasky a lightsaber), and then did a fully choreographed version of Anus with the dancers from the music video. Alaska also was one that didn’t look real that’s how beautiful she is.
-Courtney came out in a very cute sparkly outift and sang in her whistle tones of course. I thought Court couldn’t get any prettier but I guess I was wrong. So super cute and so super tiny!
-Jinkx sang an amazing song about how death is inevitable. 100% camp 100% Jinkx. They were just as beautiful as I remembered. The wig they wore was everything I ever wanted and more!
-Michelle closed the show with a breathtaking song with photos of gay history in the background
-The show was a little over 2 hours not including Pearl at the beginning and was totally worth every penny.
Here is three pictures of the hundred I must have taken on this day when we visit Savoca. One of the filming locations of The Godfather. And let me tell you that I went from a state of over excitement to deeply overwhelmed in the space of 3 seconds when I catch sight of the bar. Luckily we were the first to arrive at the Bar Vitelli and THANK GOD because I really had the time to appreciate the quietness and holiness (don’t judge me) of this place, before the waves of tourists. Then we went to see the Church of St. Nicolò equally amazing, a vision as if I was in the film. Besides Coppola’s masterpiece, the village is absolutely lovely, and has some hidden gems like San Michele Church which made a strong impression on me. Will be back for sure
Possible runway looks for Monday’s new episode. Since MAX is in this in the trailer and Michelle is in green, too (GASP), I figure the rest of these are just as likely. So there can be a green runway, I’d like to think. Thoughts?
All looks are pulled from the super trailer, so it’s nothing new. But still.
Survivor - Season 32, Kaôh Rōng The Winner: Michele Fitzgerald
Winner, winner, Mark the Chicken dinner! I never honestly had strong opinions on Michele the entire season. I wasn’t in love with her but I also certainly didn’t hate her whatsoever. The only thing that sours me on Michele’s win (which is by no means her fault) is the people that jammed it down everyone’s throats the entire goddamn season that she was going to win because edit. I understand wanting to predict a winner, but telling everyone from the get-go that this contestant whom we barely hear from (and if we do, it’s nothing earth-shattering about the game) is going to win is just a liiiittle suspect, no? But again, not Michele’s fault. She got to the end by kicking ass right when her own was on the line and she didn’t rub anyone the wrong way in the process. And sometimes that’s just how you have to do it.
here’s some Hartwin with fluffy cat cuddling for @blackmakethme <3
Eggsy’s legs are currently tangled with Harry’s in a heap of comfort and post-sex haze. Eggsy knows that he’s glowing slightly, based on the multiple times Harry had lovingly told him so by pushing him down onto the bed for another slow round, but only this time, he feels positively contented being surrounded by his older lover, literally.
They lie there for a few more minutes until the familiar toenails on wooden floor approach closer to their bedroom door.
And then a whine came.
Eggsy mimics the whine, which prompts Harry to huff out a laugh and gives him a kiss on his temple.
“I got it.”
Eggsy rolls over the empty, but warm, spot and waits for Harry, who opens the door and in comes a tabby ragdoll, her small noises squeak out with every bounce of her paws.
“Tabitha, c’mere,” Eggsy opens his arms and takes the feline into his chest. “Oh sweetie, you smell amazing.”
The cat purrs and nuzzles herself into Eggsy’s chin, tickling the young man and making him laugh. Eggsy makes kissy noises at their pet and nuzzles his nose with hers.
“Was it a good idea after all to let you foster this little lady?” Harry asks amusingly. “I dare say, you might love her more than you love me.”
Eggsy shows Harry a cheeky grin before pulling him down by his arm and giving him a sound kiss. Eggsy can feel a smile coming onto his lover’s face and pulls him onto the bed, with Tabitha nestling between them. The soft duvet dips below them, Eggsy feels Harry’s hand coming up behind his back and rubbing small circles on his skin.
Harry’s giving him small little kisses now, everywhere on his face, neck, collarbone, and shoulders, making Eggsy giggle at the feather-light kisses and touches. He can feel Tabitha’s tail swishing back and forth and her purring soon mimics the sound of their humming along.
A lot of you messaged me or inboxed me yesterday after that Earthbound text post. First of all, you guys are too rad. I have the best followers of any blog on tumblr, a point I’m willing to fight anyone over.
Second of all, we had a lot of chats about Earthbound! This post could become very, VERY long about all the reasons Earthbound is my favorite videogame of all time, but I’ll refrain. One of those many reasons is its incredible soundtrack, which brings me to this video. Michelle Heafy is an incredibly talented artist and has done a bunch of insanely good videogame and movie covers; Earthbound, Chrono Cross, a bunch of Mario games, and Star Wars - just to name a few.
Her jams have brought me a lot of relaxation and happiness, and you should give her a listen and find out how good she is for yourself, if you haven’t heard her already. Her and DonutDrums cover of Pollyanna is one of my faves. Leave lots of positive comments on her videos if you enjoy them!
