"Is this what Freud would call sublimating?"

"I was going to say something mean but honestly yeah, this is EXACTLY what Freud would have called sublimating."

CAMILLE! PAGLIA! ON DESIGN AND VIOLENCE!! THE STILETTO!!

I am probably into beauty torture more than most and even I think everyone should wear flats!
It’s honest, is what it is.

"Which is?"

"Pretty face, busty."

"OK but isn’t that basically everyone’s type?"

I Went to Florida

I saw a bunch of lizards, two old roommates get married (to each other), and a lot of face lifts.

Personal Canon: “Rumpelstiltskin” (Faerie Tale Theatre, Season 1, Episode 2)

The only other episode in the first season starred Shelley Duvall herself (and looking quite beautiful) as the miller’s daughter who must spin straw into gold or face death, and promises her firstborn child to a mysterious little man. This episode also stars Ned Beatty, Paul Dooley, and Bud Cort, with a great central performance by Herve Villechaize as Rumpelstiltskin. He’s alternately helpful, cruel, diffident, regal and angry. It’s great stuff.

My sister, who was only 3 at the time, was quite scared of the little man. In fact, I think she was scared of little people for a long time after…

This episode was directed by Emile Ardolino, who had directed dance documentaries on went on to direct Dirty DancingChances Are3 Men and a Little Lady, and Sister Act. (Thought I’d just mention, since none of those will be in my personal canon…)

THIS EPISODE IS CANON!!!!!!!!!!!!!
