Most of us movie buffs are well aware of how Hollywood works. So it is no surprise that that some of our favorite actors and actresses were clawing at each other over some ole or another, but not just that, they also had real deep hatred towards each other. Enjoy these Zings and Burns from some our favorite motion picture stars.
Who can forget our favorite pair of all times, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. These two hated each others guts for years and than they went and filmed a movie together. Can you imagine what must have been like on set? “You should never say bad things about the dead, you should only say good …. Joan Crawford is dead. Good!” (Ouch!!!)
“Bette will play anything, so long as she thinks someone is watching. I’m a little more selective than that.”
“She may have more Oscars … She’s also made herself into something of a joke.”
“Miss Davis was always partial to covering up her face in motion pictures. She called it ‘art.’ Others might call it camouflage—a cover-up for the absence of any real beauty.” (Burn)
“Joan Crawford—I wouldn’t sit on her toilet!” (DAMN!!!)
“I wouldn’t piss on Joan Crawford if she were on fire.” (DAMN!!!)
“Joan Crawford—Hollywood’s first case of syphilis.” (DAMN!!!)
“She has slept with every male star at MGM except Lassie.” (DAMN!!!)

I often think of what life is like for those living in countries where the law criminalizes being homosexual and honestly I am terrified of what that could be like if it were I living in such places. In a changing world where most western countries are becoming more and more accepting of LGBTQ people, we still see how in other parts of the world life for the LGBTQ community is like.
Today I woke up to a chilling video shown on msn.com taken from CNN of men being thrown from the top of buildings on charges of being gay. It was a chilling reminder how fragile our freedoms are and how we might all be in danger of that weather, you are homosexual or not. In a chilling, IS video you can see an old man in a chair being toppled to the ground for being homosexual. A rational mind would ask; what has the world come to? Why the killing of innocent people in theses case gay/homosexuals, is the latest campaign of terror shown, right after the beheadings of foreigners, Christians, prisoners of war? And yes, this is a war! This is a war of ideology and a religious war as much as it is a twisted form of revolution. The lines are not at all blurred. We know the enemy and we know what its main goal is; the changing of an entire region into an absolute autocratic Islamic country/state. Continue reading
Remember the good old days when Islamic terrorist were part of movies from Back to The Future to Long Kiss Goodnight? The threat was always there to remind us, the audience, how they could harm us and the rest of the world yet that is when it all stopped. In recent weeks, with the Paris killings and other threats, I have been ever worried of something, which seems to spin out of control in many countries in Europe and beyond. The number of those from western as well as eastern European countries, which have joined, IS is not truly known empirically, but the effect it has caused in Europe is felt on a daily basis.

I’m always almost quiet when people tell me their problems.
I’m always almost quiet when people cry.
I’m always almost quiet when people are sick and suffering.
I’m totally quiet when someone loses a loved one.
Reason for that is; I don’t know what to say, so I just listen.
I detest cheap sentiment…
Most guys, you know, for the first time, they start with something small— mom, girlfriend’s initials, something like that. Not you. You got a full set of sleeves, all in a couple of months. Takes guys a few years to get the ink you got. – Prison Break
“Among the numerous pleasures of Vienna the hotel evenings are famous. During supper Strauss or Lanner play waltzes…After every waltz they get huge applause; and if they play a Quodlibet, or jumble of opera, song and dance, the hearers are so overjoyed that they don’t know what to do with themselves. It shows the corrupt taste of the Viennese public.” – Frédéric François Chopin
