Who killed Natalie Wood?

A few days ago, the news was abuzz with, um, news that the Natalie Wood death investigation, closed some nearly 30 years ago, is being re-opened according to breaking information from the captain of the Splendor, the ship Wood was on that fateful night. 


Apparently Robert Wagner, her on-off again husband of many years, is being pinpointed as the one responsible for leading Wood to her watery death that night. I'm just going to stop and say this story sincerely breaks my heart. Natalie Wood was such an awesome actress and to have her whole career reduced to THIS sort of tabloidy story makes me sick.


I will give you the deetz behind it though:  Natalie Wood was starring with Christopher Walken in the film Brainstorm. Apparently, word had it that Wood was busy hooking up with C-Walken. And the Wagner/Wood relationship was something always on the rocks. Well, they all went on a boat, to be really I guess flippant about how I'm describing it?, drinking was involved, fighting broke out. Natalie, very drunk (oh girl how this has been me too many times), wandered around the boat. Up until now, it was widely believed she simply fell, being drunk and drowned.


This is where it gets really creepy, because the actress had a long-standing life fear of water and knew she would die of drowning. People in the vicinity heard screaming "help me! help me!" and requests for more outright help....but no one did anything. Natalie Wood drowned that night, ending a career from childhood onwards, a career that would have definitely been re-energized if she had lived to see it.


So it remains a little of a mystery:  did she really fall or was she pushed? As a result of an alleged "lover's quarrel?"




me? I personally think she fell. but it is a weird, weird situation. nonetheless, Natalie Wood is a legend- she doesn't get a lot of spotlight these days, but she was pretty fantastic.






RIP, Natalie.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
