Little Edie's Halloween

Well - I did it. It was kind of last minute - but I went to a fun Halloween party on Saturday night as Little Edie from my obsession "Grey Gardens"

The best part of the evening was when I was joking around and quoting the part of the film (and musical) when Little Edie keeps saying "I felt something slipping" - because sure enough as I got to the front door of the party I felt something around my ankles. It was my skirt (or rather cardigan I fashioned into a skirt). So I was standing wearing fishnets, pumps, a turtleneck, and a turban. Excellent.

"All I need to find is this Libra man"

The Obsession Continues

So here's some breaking news on the Grey Gardens front.

First of all Grey Gardens The Musical opens next week. I saw it in previews and couldn't have been more in love and excited about it. If you're in NYC - go see it. If you feel the need to buy me a T-shirt I wear a medium. Go to their awesome site to see great clips and interviews with the stars.

On Monday, October 30th Christine Ebersole will be on the View and is scheduled to sing her final ballad from the musical, "Another Winter in a Summer Town" - its heart-breakingly beautiful.

Now the DVD of the original movie is hard to come by (and expensive if you buy it) - but I urge you to set your tivos for this Sunday, Oct 29th. The amazing documentary will be played on TCM at 7pm. Watch it. You just need to. I always recommend that people watch it the first time with subtitles on. It's a lot of crazy comin' at you - a lot to take in - but then you realize, maybe not crazy, maybe just very different. GOD I LOVE THIS MOVIE.

Which brings me to my next point. A suplimentary documentary made up of previously unseen footage from the original movie is finally being released nation-wide. For those of you in Chicago - it will play at the historic Music Box Theatre on Southport starting December 1st. I will be there. Maybe dressed as Little Edie. Not kidding. If you'd like to see a clip from the "new" film "The Beales of Grey Gardens" go to Rob's MySpace Page where you can watch a clip and also link to the documentary's mySpace page. And you can further stalk me.

You're gonna love me... and my crazy shoulder pads.

Robbie in NYC

So, I'm back from NYC

Don't even get me started on Grey Gardens - or seeing Jennifer Hudson in "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" - AMAZING

It was a GOOD TIME, short time in the city. I even had cocktails one table over from Lauren Bacall. That's who we roll.

On one of the "live from NY" calls I mentioned seeing the winning outfits from Project Runway. For those of you who don't know (like JMichael and Baby Jon) every week Macy's displayed the winner of each challenge. The next week they would put it on the clothes rack to the side and the new winner on the mannequin. So when I visited Uli's dress was still on the form and all the past winners were on the rack.

It was pretty amazing to see what a shitty condition most of them were in - you get the sense that those garments are on the models with a wink and a prayer - except for Laura's little black dress. She's my bitch and she's gonna win.

While I was there - I recorded some live segments with my new friend Chef Mark - he's a podcasting star with 2 amazing shows. Check his shit out! And our live recording - we do some sightseeing, some Project Runway dissin' with random people on the street, and get mani/pedis.

Check out HOTTIE Chef Mark and our live NYC podcast.

I think I'm aging well.

You know, I had a bit of an "I feel old" moment the other day... The wrinkles that are beginning to stick around, the gray hair... but then I saw this guy that took a picture of himself everyday for the past 6 years and decided, in comparison, I'm aging pretty well.

Halloween Costume Idea #1: Cystal Meth Gayle

It'll be like the above - except freakishly skinny, gray skin, click jaw, rotting teeth, and everything but the kitchen sink shoved up my ass.

What are you gonna wear?

Austrailian Woman Has Lightning Shoot Out Her Ass

Ok, so I know this picture has nothing to do with the news article - but it makes me laugh.

This is a for real story:

Lightning exits woman's bottom

A WOMAN has suffered severe burning to her anus after being struck by lightning which hit her in the mouth and passed right through her body.

Natasha Timarovic, 27, was cleaning her teeth at home when lightning struck the building.

She said: "I had just put my mouth under the tap to rinse away the toothpaste when the lightning must have struck the building.

I don't remember much after that, but I was later told that the lightning had travelled down the water pipe and struck me on the mouth, passing through my body.

It was incredibly painful, I felt it pass through my torso and then I don't remember much at all." Doctors at the city hospital where she was treated for burns to the mouth and rear said: "The accident is bizarre but not impossible.

She was wearing rubber bathroom shoes at the time and so instead of earthing through her feet it appears the electricity shot out of her backside," a medic told local television news channel, 24 Sata.

"It appears to have earthed through the damp shower curtain that she was touching as she bent over to put her mouth under the tap. If she had not been wearing the shoes she would probably have been killed by the blast."

They are NOT gay (so hot)

Sandy Duncan in a BYOC staging of MAME

BYOC - that's bring your own costume

And clearly she raided Liza's housekeeper's closet to find this shitty ensemble.

Reason #1 why I hate the DMV
