Happy Friday 13th

Image
HAPPY FRIDAY 13th!!!! Many of us are probably wearing rabbit feet, garlic, crosses, and doing other things to make sure that we don't have bad luck on today.  However, I'm not superstitious. Never have been. I just don't believe in luck. 
   Whenever Friday 13th comes around I think about the "Friday the 13th" series of movies that deal with the possessed, hate filled, seemingly unkillable, slasher Jason Voorhees.
Jason was a kid who had special needs who was killed during a camping outfit at Camp Crystal Lake. As a revenge his mother stalks and kills teens, but is decapitated by one of the stalked counselors and Jason sees it and therefore begins his bloody revenge. Anyway, I don't think I'll be watching this anytime soon. I've watched it too much along with the 200 remake. 
Well again, Happy Bloody Friday 13th.

"The Wiz" is a Black version of the MGM version and Frank Baum book "The Wizard of Oz." However "The Wiz," stays true to the story book as Dorothy had silver, glass slippers, not Ruby Slippers.  In the original stage play Stephanie Mills, award winning singer and songstress of "Something in the Way You Make Me Feel," played as Dorothy along with Ted Ross as the Lion. Willia Brown wrote this adaptation and Charlie Smalls was responsible for the music.  In 1974 Diana Ross, the Late Nipsey Russell, and the late Michael Jackson,and Ted Ross, starred in a motion picture production with Quincy Jones on the music. The Late…

Last Night,

   Gaga was one of several musicians slated to perform for the Hollywood Bowl during a concert celebrating the 10th anniversary of Clinton's foundation.  "I thought, `My God. I get Lady Gaga and I will have a heart attack celebrating my 65th birthday," Clinton later said. Get into the Video below of Lady Gaga in her "Marylin Monroe Moment."
