Please accept an apology for today’s late post, but Lynnrockets and crew had another smashing Halloween party last night. Photos may be posted a little later. Don’t know how many more of these we can take. Enough about us however, let’s get to the Palins!
There are a few timely news bites about Alaska’s version of the Munsters that should see the light of day. First, Britain’s The Guardian reports that Levi Johnston plans on taking the Palin’s to court in a custody battle so that he can see his son, Sarah Palin’s grandson. he says,
I’m up to the point where I can’t see my kid again, I’m done. I’m sure we’ll end up in court. We’re definitely going to court.
Wouldn’t you just love to see Sarah Palin subjected to deposition testimony under oath? What juicy tidbits would be divulged? keep your collective fingers crossed.
In other Miss Quittypants news, as expected, Sarah Palin has backed out of her speaking engagement in Iowa. The Iowa Family Policy Center has announced that Palin is too busy with her book tour to attend their event. We suspect that the real reason for her cancellation is the backlash unleashed by the disclosure of her requested speaking fee of $ 100,000.00. Once again, the Palin bunch has completely screwed up a potential public appearance. Someone should start keeping track of all of her scheduling snafus. any volunteers?
Please have a scary, fun and safe All Hallow’s Eve !!!
In honor of the troops, please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along to this Halloween inspired song parody.
Theme song to the 1960’s television sit-com, The Addams Family: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVRX_5tGOlo
THE PALIN FAMILY
(sung to the theme of “The Addams Family”)
Their creepy and their brain-dead
Ingested way too much lead
Kids born before they were wed,
The Palin Family
Her dialect is grating
Her beehive irritating
Daughters always mating
The Palin Family
So put your muckluks on now
And join their nightly pow-wow
It’s certainly not highbrow
The Palin Family.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 British musical comedy film that parodies science fiction and horror films. Still in limited release 34 years after its premiere, it has the longest-running theatrical release in film history. It gained notoriety as a midnight movie in 1977 when audiences began participating with the film in theaters across the United States. “Rocky Horror” is the first movie from a major film studio, such as 20th Century Fox, to be in the midnight movie market. Widely known by mainstream audiences, it has a large international following and is one of the most well known and financially successful midnight movies of all time. In 2005, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
The film, considered a cult classic, is an adaptation of the British musical stage production The Rocky Horror Show. Richard O’Brien, author of the stage show, was assisted by Jim Sharman in writing the screenplay. The movie introduces Tim Curry and features Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick along with cast members from the original Kings Road production of the play first performed in the Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court Theatre in 1973.
The story is narrated by a criminologist who, reading from a leather bound report titled, “The Denton Affair”, tells the tale of newly engaged couple, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, who find themselves lost and with a flat tire on a rainy, late November evening. Seeking a phone with which to call for help, the two knock on the door of a nearby castle. They are invited inside by Riff Raff, a hunchback servant, along with his sister Magenta. Inside Brad and Janet discover a group of strange and outlandish people who are holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention. They watch, still wet from the rain, as the Transylvanians, servants and a tap dancing groupie named Columbia, dance the “Time Warp”, the film’s signature song.
It would not be Halloween with out some Rocky Horror Picture Show, so please enjoy this clip of The Time Warp.
