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.

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-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
