“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins (“Footloose”)
The movie musical quickly became one of the biggest hits when it was released in 1984, in no small part thanks to Loggins’ now-iconic song. It’s impossible not to dance when you hear it, which is probably why the song topped the charts for three weeks in a row on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming such a massive hit that Loggins himself was blown away by its success.

God, This Is So Frustating & I Can’t Understand In The Morning LOL – The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this

Since I’m on record as being annoyed that all anyone cares about is the EGOT it’s time to celebrate our preferred obsession: The Triple Crown of Acting. That’s when a performer manages the Emmy, Oscar, and Tony for acting. To date only 24* actors have accomplished this, with Glenda Jackson being the most recent recipient as of this past Sunday night at the Tony Awards. Triple Crowns have become much more commonplace in the 21st century since actors move much more fluidly through the three mediums than they did in before the turn of the century. TV has totally lost its stigma for movie stars and Broadway is more welcome to very short runs freeing major stars up to continue with their movie and TV careers without as much scheduling trauma.

The Labor party is expected to debate the issue at their upcoming national conference. Members of the party’s left faction are reportedly going to propose that people who are fleeing their home countries because of persecution over their sexuality should be more easily recognised as refugees in Australia.

From Don, AKA Mister D: I’m Still Here – My Father’s Passing And My Health (Not Required Reading, For Those Interested

Hi Betteheads:

Just wanted to let you know that I haven’t abandoned you or my site or Bette Midler.  It’s just been an awful couple of months that have put me down hard.  As I think I told you my body stopped producing testosterone, but I can’t take testosterone injections because my red blood cell count is too high making my blood very thick.

DEREK LAWRENCE
April 03, 2018

After her infamous photo with a bloody facsimile of Donald Trump’s severed head, Kathy Griffin believes Hollywood abandoned her, refusing to extend a lifeline that she desperately needed.

Last May, the comedian became embroiled in a controversy that sparked a two-month federal investigation when images were released of her holding a fake decapitated head resembling the president. Since then, she lost her New Year’s Eve cohosting job on CNN and found it difficult to book stand-up gigs. And on Tuesday’s episode of The Howard Stern Show, Griffin — who apologized and then backtracked on her mea culpa — further addressed the fallout and the lack of support she received. Read More
