GET UPDATES FROM Tallulah Morehead
 
Tallulah Morehead is the completely legendary star of 90 unforgettable forgotten classic Hollywood films, including The Mailman Always Comes Twice, Privates on Display, Seven Brides for Seven Dwarfs, The Lady Steve, and Caligulee, Caligula. She was born in 1897, which makes her 112, but Death isn't an issue for her, as she is a Screen Immortal. She made her film debut in 1915, and retired from the movies in 1969, although critics maintain she retired from acting years earlier. She no longer has any idea how many times she has been married, but we know of at least 10 husbands, one or two of whom may even have been heterosexual, at least at the time of the wedding. She is the author of an autobiography, My Lush Life, published by Kensington Books, and she stoutly denies the wicked lie that she is actually her ghost writer and amanuensis, Douglas McEwan, a bitter old queen of a comedy writer, leaching off of her like a gay tick. She would prefer her vodka straight please. (Mr. McEwan is also the author of The Q Guide to Classic Monster Movies, but as it isn't about her, Tallulah recommends skipping it.)

Oh joy. A chance to spend an evening listening to actors blow smoke up each other's butts as they discuss the Extreme Nobility of Acting.

The amusing opening number, It's Not Just For Gays Anymore, might have been more convincing if they could have found a straight man to sing...

Survivor 22: Rerun Island: Rice Wars, Episode 10: A New Dope

We began the 10th episode of Survivor: Zombie Island on Zombie Island. Matt, aka Dr. Jesus, has been out there alone so much, he's now talking out loud to a man who has been dead since the days of the Emperor Tiberius. It's a measure of how much slack we...

In his "Previously on Survivor" opening spiel, Jeff Probst said of Matt, aka, Dr. Jesus: "Matt's time on Redemption Island finally came to an end," when he should have said: "Dr. Jesus's time on Zombie Island finally came to a momentary pause."

Dr. Jesus waxed philosophical about his second...

As episode 8 of Survivior: Zombie Island commenced, it occurred to me that Sarita doesn't seem to fully understand the game of Survivor, or Tic Tac Toe for that matter. She arrived at Zombie Island overflowing with praise for the very people who had just sunk her hopes of winning...

Arriving back at camp from Tribal Council, Steve was trying to heal wounds and promote tribal unity, but David was having none of it. He's a defense lawyer. He's innately combative. You don't kiss and make up with the DA after you've gotten some triple-murderer released back into your neighborhood....

Liars!), blond (in both the hair and the blond-jokes sense) Klumpp, snuggling up with equally blond (also in both senses) Matt, aka Dr. Jesus, the Christian med student. Klumpp had an...

Survivor opened this week watching Matt, aka Dr. Jesus, arriving on Zombie Island, a newly-made member of The Squawking Dead, like all Christians, seeking Redemption and Resurrection, whereas what he needs is what all zombies seek: brains.

Hello darlings, and welcome to my annual skewering of the Oscars show, or as it's also known, The Gay Superbowl.

And so we got our first look at Zombie Island. Oh, they call it "Redemption Island," but every time I've ever heard someone offering "redemption," it always turns out to be a religious con-man-or-woman. This island is where The Squawking Dead roam, seeking ever to break back through into the...

"Like one who, on a lonely road,

Doth walk in fear and dread,

And, having once turn'd round, walks on,

And turns no more his head;

Because he knows a frightful fiend

Doth close behind him tread."

Happy New Year, darlings. All of you reading this piece have something in common: you survived 2010. Not everyone was so lucky, and a lot of people, as always, took the off-ramp from Life. I've a few thoughts to share about some of the most-famous departures this year, in what...

Holly: "What the [fatita] is wrong with Chase?"

Well aesthetically, nothing. The entire top-of-the-show recap centered on the many betrayals by Chase, focusing solely on him. I wonder who will be at the center of this penultimate episode's action?

Sash believes he's running the show again. Last week he was...

After last week's jaw-dropper of a double-quit episode, leaving alliances in ruins, this week was surprisingly tame and dull. Perhaps that it centered on Sash, one of the least-interesting men on the show ever, increased its drab quality.

I've been calling Chase an idiot for weeks now, merely because he's...

Go placidly among the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in riches.

Speak your truth softly, and carry a big stick.

Listen to others, even the dull and ignorant, no matter how boringly and stupidly they may waste your time.

Don't put all your eggs...

And our love become a funeral pyre.

Come on baby, light my fire.

Come on baby, light my fire.

Try to set the night on fire."
