Movie Thursday: Glam Film/Glam Spy

February 28, 2008

Video:  What Will The Well Dressed Spy Be Wearing This Spring?….            Why,  Louis Vuitton, Of Course!

                                         GLAMOROUS  FILM  REMAKE ?

                          Casablanca

           A remake of “Casablanca” with the war in Iraq as the plot or backdrop?….Roger Simon thinks there should be one.  Roger Simon thinks a “buck”  of Hollywood’s current  “anti-Iraqi-war trend” would “work” cinematically and (in addition) be “popular” and “profitable” as well (in movie speak “Boffo Box Office!”)….

        So, let’s say our financing is in place (Mr. Murdoch at 20th Century Fox would have the gumption and the dollars).  Next, are our “lists”.  Who would direct?  Minghella?  He made “The English Patient” (which was brilliant).  Nichols?  He just made “Charlie Wilson’s War” (which “is” brilliant).  And—there has to be a “leading man” and a “leading lady”.  Julianne Moore comes to mind (but she starred in the English war movie/love story “The End Of The Affair” opposite the handsome and talented Ralph Fiennes).  Kate Winslet also comes to mind.  She could be “paired with” Harrison Ford in the “male lead”.  (Cate Blanchett and Harrison Ford would also be “great casting”)….

        They say–you should “never” remake a “classic” but if anyone could do it Roger Simon could.  Roger is an Academy Award nominated screenwriter who worked with the “diva” of all “movie divas”  La Streisand!!!    Roger Simon  is also the CEO of Pajamas Media.  Will Roger be a “Pajama Mogul?”.  Read Roger’s article on the “new media” (click link below)

Quote:

“Our people look for a cause to believe in.  Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of not pale pastels, but BOLD COLORS which make it unmistakably clear  where we stand on all of the issues troubling the People…” –RONALD W. REAGAN  (03/01/1975)

History Monday: Presidents’ Day !

February 15, 2008

          Did you know that presidential code names have little to do with the actual ‘safety’ of the President?   Once upon a time….presidential code names were useful when radio and phone communications were “unsecured” and could easily be picked up by outsiders.   Nowadays, however, the military and the Secret Service can communicate over highly “secured” lines — making a presidential code name irrelevant.  Still, habit lives on…as you’ll see below.

          (Renee’s Aside: “All presidential code names are chosen by the U.S. Military.  George Bush, Jr was given his code name back during his ‘rowdy days’ when his dad –George Bush, Sr– was still President.  It takes too long to say, let’s go get ‘George who can really throw one back’.    So,  the Secret Service shortened it, and said,  instead, ‘Let’s go get Tumbler’ ….Tee, hee, hee”….)

special thanks: Code Name  ‘Pickle’

P.S.  Candidate Hillary Clinton’s Secret Service Code Name is “Evergreen”.  Evergreen!  Evergreen!   But–I thought?   Duh-Whuuuut???????…

President George Bush,Jr  Code Name: Tumbler

Code Name: Timber Wolf President George Bush, Sr 

President Bill Clinton  Code Name:  Eagle

  Code Name: Rawhide President Ronald Reagen

Can you guess President Kennedy’s ?  

                             (Renee’s Hint:  “Guinevere” )

President John F Kennedy 1   

                                                               President John F Kennedy
