Justice Kennedy Denies Emergency Challenge To Marriage Equality In California

Frances (1982) Original Trailer




This story is tragic but fascinating. Although many of the details of Frances Farmer’s life presented in the film may not be factual, it still works, and in my opinion, worth viewing even if it’s complete fiction. Frances, as played by Jessica Lang, was a strongly independent and intelligent woman with a gift for acting. She wanted to be a serious actress, but she ended up in Hollywood making mostly fluff during a time when studios were meddlesome and controlling on and off the set. Frances was unlucky in love, too. So her mental health deteriorated, and she began to lash out and act erratically. She probably suffered from a simple case of depression, but she had a run in with a police officer and threw a tantrum in a court room. That cost her her freedom. Her mother became her guardian, and she committed Frances to a mental hospital were she became a prisoner, more or less, for a number of years.

Later in life, Frances did make something of a comeback. She became a talk show host, and she worked on stage in several serious plays. But then she died of cancer in her mid 50s.

Her life was a mess, and there was no clear or obvious villain who can easily be blamed for ruining Frances Farmer. No single event ruined her. It was just a series of hiccups that added up to a catastrophe.

I think many people lead messy lives like this. Most don’t become Hollywood legends, of course, but many are overwhelmed by circumstances. It may be a lot of little things. If you knew the basic facts of their lives, you might wonder how things could go so terribly wrong. But sometimes it’s the small, hidden things that do a person in.

Come out, come out - It's time


Saturday, June 22, 2013

I really hate to be told that I *should* feel a certain way or believe something that can't be proven and doesn't seem right to me.

All of my life I have had people around me, including family members who were supposed to love and support me, who indicated to me that what I think and feel doesn't matter, and that I should either agree with them or shut up.

It caused me to feel isolated and alone. I didn't feel like I could trust anyone. I didn't feel loved or appreciated. It made me feel like I was basically nothing, and that if there was anything of me of any significance, it was somehow invisible, even to me.

I sometimes wondered why I couldn't talk freely about what I thought and felt like other people do. When I was young, I actually worried that maybe I wasn't a whole person, that maybe part of me was missing and that I was just blank.

Later I realized that I had repressed and hidden everything because I was so afraid, and this caused my personal development to be stunted. I became a stranger even to myself. I didn't know who I was, what I liked, what I believed. I had only a few interests, and I couldn't talk about them in depth with anyone.

They're Coming Back

There was an old logging road at the edge of the housing development. They were forbidden to ride their bikes up there, but they kept hearing stories about people seeing strange lights in the sky while driving on that road, so one night they devised a scheme to slip away from their families and investigate. Only one came back. Search parties were unable to locate the other three. It seems they had vanished without a trace. The lone survivor was unable to give any explanations. He lost the ability to speak, and he’s spent the last three decades in a quasi catatonic state. But on the thirtieth anniversary of the terrible event, he started to show signs of becoming more alert, and that evening, he said something: “They’re coming back."

G.I. Joe


Sex can be shallow. It can be fun. A fetish might be involved. It can be deep and meaningful. It might be spiritual. It might be messed up. What the participants do might be weird to some, creepy, scary. But as long as it’s consensual, I don’t care. Sure there are certain things that put me off, but I don’t have to do those things myself, and I don’t have to dwell on those things. People have to find their own way, and I try to remember that I’m certainly no expert in finding the right path…for myself or anyone else. Sometimes I forget and get a bit preachy about things that really aren’t any of my business. When that happens, just ping my head with a peanut and tell me to pipe down. LOL
