So here I am, tootling around, and I find something about that film Matilda where the little kid who played Matilda is now grown-up and a lot more cool than she used to be and arguing it out with the Nostalgia Chick. So that's here, and around the ten minute mark Mara Wilson says "There's Matilda and Miss Honey slash fan fiction out there. I mean, really, guys? Really?"

Me: Hehehehe. Really? Noooo. Really?


Me: Heheheheheeee!

*one hour later*

Me: GODDAMNIT. No. Where is the final chapter? WHERE IS IT?

Yeah, so. That's just part of it. (Probably the weirdest internet part of the night, but oversharing is caring, folks.) Did you know that there are kazillions of old movies that are in the public domain and they're all up on YouTube? Good ones even. Like His Girl Friday and It's A Wonderful Life (if you happen to like that film, which I don't particularly). Also lots of films that are just blatantly on YouTube for no good reason except that I like to watch them.

Today: Too Late For Tears, A Royal Scandal (oh, Tallulah!), Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?. Also a big giant long interview with Lizabeth Scott, which I obviously had to watch after Too Late For Tears which by the way is not a very good movie, and don't bother watching the interview either because she doesn't say one word about how she got kicked out of Hollywood for visiting prostitutes.


Seran, I don't think this is what you meant when you told me to get a hobby, eh?

Never mind. I can disappear joyfully into the endless loop of the strange part of the internet!!

One of the saddest days of my life was when I accidentally found a Motley Crue slash community on livejournal and subsequently learned that it had never been updated. (January 22, 2006. I found it in my old journal with the helpful tag, "holy crap motley crue fanfic." I will probably start wearing black on January 22nd. [I already wear black most of the time, so nobody will notice probably.])

I'm not at all interested in Motley Crue slash, but the point was, it existed. (And it does now, I'm sure.)

Also: Morning Glory is in the public domain! Katherine Hepburn playing a lady who is drunk but trying to pretend to be sober while trying to get her big break as an actress and subsequently winning Oscar #1.

ALSO: I know that this isn't fair, but whenever I think of Tallulah Bankhead I think about the part in Marlon Brando's autobiography where he's talking about how she was hitting on him and he found it super gross. I know that she was fabulous, but it's stuck in my brain.

Omg, you sweet beautiful angel - I have been dying to see this since I was about 12.

I think grossing people out by being overly lechy is kind of cool, as long as you're a Tallulah. If you're just a random dude in the road it's less fun. But Tallulah was supposed to be a bit predatory, yanno?

Thanks for telling me about Morning Glory!! I'ma YouTube that up.
