"Suck It Baby, Suck It!"

Oh dear - all these living legends suddenly dropping like flies; must be the change in the weather.

Tha latest is Russ Meyer, who made a bucketload of trash - out and out trash - but also one of my favourite films, Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill! starring the vixen to outfox all vixens, Tura Santana. Indeed, John Waters is on the record as stating that it's the greatest movie ever made.

By way of tawdry comparison, I just picked up on the news that La Ficelle - aka Gwyneth Paltrow - is to trouser £2 million for destroying (or else lip-synching her way through) Cole Porter's wonderful What Is This Thing Called Love?* for a biopic of Truman Capote - yes, that old faggot fraud. That's no answer to my prayers. Gwyneth's head in a box - now you're talking . . .

*Written by Cole Porter, who is in BOAT DRINKS. For a definitive reading of this song listen to (or - shame on you slouches! - dash out and buy / steal / do what you have to do to get) In the Wee Small Hours by Frank Sinatra. The album is a stone cold classic, and includes three fantastic Rodgers & Hart songs (Lorenz Hart - my favourite lyric writer from that pre-Rock & Roll period - is, of course, listed in BOAT DRINKS too).

Sinatra's themed cycle of songs is said to be about his doomed relationship with Ava Gardner (and how about hers for Meyeresque assets?) - doomed in part because she was a nympho who would fuck anything that moved. Meanwhile, Frank was no wallflower (and his prize asset had to be taped down before a public performance - much to his embarrassment), spending his loose change in those portable twenty-four hour slot machines which keep Las Vegas purring.

ADDENDUM : there's a good obit of Meyer here.
