NEW podcast listens!

I want to share some of my favorite podcasts this rainy Sunday. Some are series, while others are weekly podcasts. I decided to backtrack and listen to the first episode of the podcast.

Seven deadly sinners podcast by host Rachael O’Brien. This podcast is about the dark history of cult leaders and televangelists. This is a podcast I backtracked and started to listen to the first episode, and I have been totally absorbed with it ever since!

Molly Lambert takes us on a deep dive into the world of Heidi Fleiss. I had the day off two weeks ago and listened to all the episodes in one day.

Christopher & Eric Podcast:: Christopher Rice and Eric Shaw Quinn are my new favorite people! This is another podcast I started at episode one. This is a weekly podcast that does not disappoint! They discuss actual crime shows; however, they explain the shows so much that you do not have to watch episodes beforehand, but they do such a good job that I end up watching the show anyways, so I see the sometimes bad reenactments on the shows. They share their opinions on them with a blend of humor, and they switch the episodes between discussions of true crime and excellent life advice shows.

Finding Cleo is about a missing person hitchhiking home to Saskatchewan and has not been seen since the 1970s. Her family believes something horrible happened to her while trying to get back home. Host Connie Walker searches for answers for Cleo’s family in hopes of finally getting a response.

Host Reness Roberson discusses the missing people in the Carolinas. Every episode absorbs you into realizing that people go missing daily, leaving family and loved ones to what happened to them.

The artworld’s hidden themepark: Luna Luna

In 1987 in Hamburg, Germany, there was the first ever art amusement park. Artists such as Dali, Haring, and Basquiat create art pieces that work of art in the shape of carousels, Ferris wheels, and a fun house. It only lasted one summer outside a park in Hamburg, Germany, but it had over 250.000 patrons visit it.

The idea came from artist Andre Heller. He received an enormous grant from a German magazine, and he went to scout the most influential artists of that time to see if they wanted to participate in this park idea. The park had 30 different pieces from 30 other artists. Heller wanted the art world to come together for this once in the lifetime experience of making art and play come together.

Keith Karing Carousel (1987)

However, Heller wanted to take the park on a European tour, but that idea fell through. Next, he tried to make the park a staple fixture in Vienna, but the city rejected it.

The entrance to Luna Luna Park was created by Sonia Delaunay (1987)

During the fall of 1987, with nowhere to go, Heller broke down the park and put it into storage. In 1990, Heller tried to sell the park due to financial hardship, but there were still a lot of lawsuits from the previous years, and that deal did not go far. For the next 15 years, the attractions and rides have been in a storage space in Texas.

In 2019, Drake and his production company DreamCrew, and other investors decided to buy and start to restore the park to its full glory.

Currently, pieces of the park are in a massive workshop in Los Angles and are being restored. The future of what Luna Luna will be is still unanswered, but I am excited to see what they will do with it!

Lesser Known Muppets chapter 4!

As you know one of my main loves in my life are the Muppets. So today I will talk about 5 lesser known Muppets:

Yolanda- Yolanda first’s appearance in the muppet universe was in one of my favorite movies The Muppets Take Manhattan. (the wedding scene makes me cry every time! )

In the movie she takes a job as a waitress at Pete’s Luncheonette and hangs out with Rizzo and his friends throughout the movie. After the movie Yolanda shows up sporadically in other Muppets specials such as The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 years. Yolanda is usually part of Miss Piggy’s close group of friends whenever she needs a girls night or a shoulder to cry on.

Skeeter is Scooter’s twin sister and made her debut on the Muppet Babies(1984). I remember her being bold, very sporty and sometimes she argue with her brother.

Harry the Hipster:

Harry was one of the original Jim Henson muppets and has a fondness for jazz music. Although he made several appearances when Jim Henson first started he wasn’t a regular muppet. Although he did make an appearance in The Muppets: A Celebration of 30 Years (1986). For those interested in seeing the special. There is a youtube video below:

Annie Sue Pig:

She sings and dance in the Muppet Show and see Miss Piggy as one of her idols. Kermit tries to put Annie Sue in less dancing and singing roles and in more dramatic roles. However she backs out and just prefers to show up in dancing or singing parts throughout the Muppet universe.

Taminella Grinderfall:

Not much is known about Taminell. Although she was part of pilot by Jerry Juhl called Tales of the Tinkerdee. She was the star of the pilot but it was never aired however she did appear on Sesame Street to talk about the letter O:

I might do another part of this series. Is there a muppet I have not discussed yet but would like to be featured? Comment below!

Until next time!!!

Movie of the Day: The Stepford Wives (1975)

This week’s movie of the day is 1975’s The Stepford Wives. Starring Katherine Ross, Paula Prentiss, and Peter Masteron. This is one of my favorite movies and books. I have discussed the book by Ira Levin in previous blog posts, so if you want to go on a deep dive into my blog. Then I totally suggest going for it!!!

I prefer the 1975 movie version of this book rather than the 2004 version because the later version was more of a comedy. I am more of a horror fan, and the 1975 version delivers that better.

It is also no shock to anyone that Ira Levin is one of my favorite authors. He also wrote two other of my favorite books. One is called Rosemary’s Baby:

And the other book is called The Boys from Brazil:

The movie centers around the Eberhart family. Joanne Eberhart and her family move out of the busy city into a quiet town in Stepford, Connecticut. But when Joanne gets to know the wives of Stepford, she realizes everything is not what it seems.

I came to learn about the movie by chance when I realized that Ira Levin wrote numerous novels. I first read Rosemary’s Baby and enjoyed it so much that I went deep into the author’s list of novels and short stories.

Here are some fun facts about the movie:

Director Byran Forbes also wrote other screenplays, such as “Of Human Bondage” and “Seance on a Wet Afternoon.”

Ira Levin’s original plan was to make a play instead of a book. However, his final decision to create the book was due to an overflow of characters.

Diane Keaton turned down the lead role in the film. Claiming that the script gave her “bad vibes.”

This movie greatly inspired Jordon Peele when creating his film “Get Out.”

Brian DePalma was approached to direct The Stepford Wives but was making another movie called “Obsession.”

Tuesday Weld was initially offered the lead role in this movie but turned it down. Instead, several actresses like Susan Sarandon, Jane Fonda, and Natalie Wood were offered this role.

The acting debut of Dee Wallace:

Have you seen this movie? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Comment below!
