Parker’s New Book

Calm down, calm down now. Look, I’m just as excited about this as you are but I’m not about to spill this beer and I mean coffee all over my barely alive keyboard.

Yes, the rumors are true – Parker Posey has a new book out and I’m sure it’s genius. If you want to read about it you can do that HERE.

As many of you might know, Parker is somebody I am proud to call friend and let me tell you privately, she is good at being a friend. She doesn’t bug you but will always answer an email or a phone call. She’s a great date and pretends to love anything you might bring her. I think that’s classy. “Oh my god! A little ceramic…is it ceramic?… a little…it’s so… I love it. Thank you! How are you?”

Ok so – New Book – “You’re On An Airplane”

I haven’t read it yet so I won’t try to review it but I’m guessing by the title that it’s a bunch of suggestions for improv scenes? Right? Maybe like, “You’re on an airplane and a terrorist has just slit the pilot’s throat…” GO! -you feel me?

No? well….it could be.

It could also be a re-telling of all the times you passed out and the first things you remember hearing after you woke up? Maybe? No? Anybody? No?

Ok, so after I read it I will have a better understanding of what it is about and I will let you know. I’m excited about it because it doesn’t look too long. Right? Plus really long books are super heavy to carry around so you leave them at home and you never read them because there’s TV at home, obviously, why should you?  Hey don’t act like you don’t know exactly what I”m talking about, Mr. “An Understanding of Sophocles” at The Beach. OK? Let’s keep it real here.

Now, there are two things that I would like to point out about Parker Posey’s new book that I have not read.

A. – Yes, that IS a leather turban.

And 2 –

Black Manicure – like ink from a type-writer ribbon.I get it.

Author, black manicure, probably using pens all the time – pretty smart, kid!!

Having worked in the past very intensely on a NYT best-seller (12 weeks, bitches) by a little lady with the last name of Sedaris , I can tell you that this book feels like a winner to my experienced touch, I mean…the cover does. To me, it looks like a hit. I of course, have not read this book but I have managed to write a post about it and drop two famous actress names in the process. See how I did that? That, my friend, is called creating entirely
“content free media.” Look around, it’s very popular, you’ll find it “on TV every night between All My Children and Jeopardy!!”  Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you knew – that was from Paris Is Burning – not Pose. Don’t get me started with Pose. No hunney – I love Posey not Pose. I’m just gonna park it right here with Pose.

Good afternoon, Pansybeat Special Operator…

https://www.printedmatter.org/programs/events/683

Yes, that’s right maam/sir, fresh copies of the Pansybeat book will be available to the general public for under forty dollars. Yes that’s right sir/madame I did say, under forty dollars.

I’ll tell you what miss/mister, you can barely get home from a Tyler Perry movie for under forty dollars. Not these days…and if you feel like Raisinettes – well – your in over fifty by the time you get home. Raisinettes are high. That’s true.

Between you and me I find this book more entertaining than most feature films as of late. I really do.

OK then sir/madame, I wish you a wonderful evening and I look forward to hearing about the event.

mmm. buh-bye.

CLICK.

 

Push Dick’s Button by Dick Button

Screen shot 2014-02-21 at 1.18.49 AM

A must read. Dick’s tweeting during the Ladies’ finals was fun. His interview after the men’s final was coming from his sharp inside edge. Let’s all read Button. There will be a test later. I have a feeling this may be a page turner…

…and on Dick’s advice I present: Torvill and Dean – Bolero (1984 Olympics Sarajevo)

Now THAT’S ( ice ) Dancing!
