In Commemoration Of Lucille Ball's 100th Birthday: We Present, 'Just The Kinda Gal She Was...Gifts From Lucille Ball'

In commemoration of Lucille Ball's 100th Birthday we present, 'Just The Kinda Gal She Was...Gifts From Lucille Ball'.

The legendary Lucille Ball was many many many things. She was first and foremost an iconic comedienne. A film, stage, radio actress, model, and TV star from a little known sitcom called, "I Love Lucy". You may have heard of it?

In my books, Lucy continues to be one of the most influential stars of America. But now, we get a rare sneak glimpse of Irma Kusely, Lucy's hairdresser for 47 years, and Keith Thibodeaux (the actor who portrayed Little Ricky in I Love Lucy) reminisce about special gifts they were given from Miss Ball. Watch this super sweet clip and get a real understanding of who the real Lucille Ball was. Considerate, generous, and above all loving.

Right below, watch in awe and in excitement as Lucille Ball shows you how to do the Jitterbug Bite. The year was 1940, and all she knew wanted to do was dance.

Photobucket Morrissey clarified his recent remarks comparing the Norway massacre to the murder of animals for the fast food industry, in a statement to fan site True to You: "The recent killings in Norway were horrific. As usual in such cases, the media give the killer exactly what he wants: worldwide fame. We aren't told the names of the people who were killed - almost as if they are not considered to be important enough, yet the media frenzy to turn the killer into a Jack The Ripper star is .... repulsive. He should be un-named, not photographed, and quietly led away. The comment I made onstage at Warsaw could be further explained this way: Millions of beings are routinely murdered every single day in order to fund profits for McDonalds and KFCruelty, but because these murders are protected by laws, we are asked to feel indifferent about the killings, and to not even dare question them. If you quite rightly feel horrified at the Norway killings, then it surely naturally follows that you feel horror at the murder of ANY innocent being. You cannot ignore animal suffering simply because animals 'are not us.'" - via

Photobucket "American Apparel’s “Asian Conical Hat” Is Slightly Offensive: AA’s latest blunder is a ridiculous hat made to emulate those worn by poor rice paddy workers (as protection, not fashion, it should be noted), which they’ve labeled the potentially offensive “Asian Conical Hat”. This may be their attempt to get on board with the rising Asian market trend, but they don’t designate race on any other items of clothing, so why start here? Seems insensitive, don’t you think?" - - via
