HOW I IMAGINE: the Kennedys


While I rot in Detroit for another day, I decided to finally write something I've been putting off for ages. you know how the History Channel had to pull the Kennedys' series because the family had an actual qualm about it? despite the fact the series had some really good actors in it (Katie Holmes is give or take here) and they put a lot of money into production?

WELL we may never know what the History Channel had in mind for America's version of the royal family, but I'd like to think I could imagine a few worthy scenes from the series.

also, I did know research. what I wrote about is what I know about. ENJOY

SCENE 1

JFK: ASK NOT WHAT YOUR CUNT-TRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR .... CUNTRY.

JACKIE: (privately, to herself) He really seemed to drag out the 'cunt' in that, didn't he? hmm.

JFK (later, while they are still outside, arm-in-arm): I didn't say the first syllable too long, did I, Jackie dear?

JACKIE (stares at him and then blinks): Oh god no.

JFK: Good good good. I feel like I'll be doing this some time again in the future.

JACKIE: Sure! (KATIE HOLMES SMILE)

JFK: I think I might be the next FDR! Or Grover Cleveland! Wasn't he president forever?

JACKIE: Sure!

It is to be said, that during this scene, Katie Holmes/Jackie would be wearing vintage Chanel. powder blue. we'd really have to emphasize the fashion of the Mrs. Kennedy. We want an Emmy for our efforts, after all.

CAROLINE: Mommy, Daddy, I want to go home. I don't like people.

JACKIE: Caroline please do shut up. You stay in public for as long as it takes Neil Diamond to write that creepy song about you and then you can disappear.

SCENE TWO:

Kennedy family compound in New England
think like Ireland, but richer and preppier.

RANDOM MALE RELATIVE 1, DRINKING: So which one of us is going to die next?

RANDOM MALE RELATIVE 2, ALSO DRINKING: Do you want to bet on this again?

RANDOM MALE RELATIVE 1: Christmas comes early! You know! What do you say?

RELATIVE 2: You Jew! *hearty laugh*

SFX: bang on door

FEMALE RELATIVE

seriously I don't know the names of these people THERE ARE TOO MANY OF THEM

FEMALE RELATIVE: I'm going to go get that! Heeeheheeehehehehe!

She runs to the door, think of the female characters in John Cheever stories or bitches on Mad Men. Door opens, reveals wide-eyed Barbara Hershey.

BARBARA HERSHEY: WHAT HAPPENED TO MY SWEET GIRL

MALE RELATIVE 2: Who's the boner-killing bitch?

(She's gone!)


SCENE 3

JFK: I think I want to put a man on the moon. I mean, my god, the moon.

ADVISOR: What about the moon, sir?

JFK: Well, you see. (he leans in close with a most serious expression on his face)

It's big and made of cheese.

ADVISOR: And it controls women's menstrual cycles?

JFK: That's right! Powerful stuff, really! And after the bay of pigs....

flash to literally a bay of pigs

PIGS: oinkoinkoinkoink....

JFK (slams fist): God that's what we'll do! And then the Ruskies won't know what to do!

ADVISOR: THEY WILL OBVIOUSLY WANT TO BLOW THE MOON UP THEY'RE RUSSIANS.


to be continued


p.s. DISCLAIMER
I am making this all up it's stupid on purpose etc

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
