Eye To Eye With Katie Couric: Levon Helm (CBS News)


He was a great actor in "Coal Miner's Daughter" but I liked him best as both the narrator and the character Jack Ridley in "The Right Stuff". One of his greatest attributes was he never developed an inflated ego even though he was a great drummer in a great band. Very down to earth and appreciative of the simple things in life. Thanks for sharing yourself with us Levon... heaven has a new angel tonight.

Bread - Baby I'm-a Want You


Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you
You're the only one I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I'm-a crazy
But I just can't live without...

Your lovin' and affection
Givin' me direction
Like a guiding light to help me through my darkest hour
Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Feeling all the while and never really knowing why...

Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me.

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Then you came along and made me laugh
And made me cry
You taught me why...

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you

Oh, it took so long to find you, baby

Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you

Marilyn Monroe - The sexy fashion of 1962 by Bert Stern

IN BED WITH MARILYN MONROE


HER LAST PHOTO SESSION

Photographer Bert Stern had three sessions with Marilyn Monroe for Vogue magazine in late June 1962, six weeks before her death. These sessions produced extraordinarily beautiful and unique images of Marilyn.

July 1962 - "Do you ever think of the future?" Barris asked her.. "Do you have some unfulfilled ambitions?" She answered,
"I'd like to be a fine actress. I'm interested in horticulture, but I don't think I want to be a gardner. I'm interested
in all the arts. I'm even interested in people!"

Rick Perry's Lethal Overconfidence

Jaws dropped when the governor of Texas, running for president, said on national television he was “100 percent sure” everyone who had been executed on his watch was guilty. The governor was George W. Bush, appearing on NBC's Meet the Press, during his first presidential run. Six months before Bush's election, Texas executed Gary Graham, who continued to protest his innocence even as the lethal injection was killing him and whose objections were almost certainly true. Then, just before Bush moved to the White House, Texas executed Claude Jones. Last year, new DNA testing on a hair found at the crime scene cast doubt on Jones's guilt. Rick Perry likes to say that while President Bush went to Yale, he went to Texas A&M, which I guess is meant to imply that Bush is smarter than he is. But when it comes to their confidence in Texas's executions, the two are equally idiotic. Asked at Wednesday night's presidential debate if he ever worried that Texas had executed an innocent person on his watch, Perry answered, “I've never struggled with that at all.” Certainty is cheap if one achieves it by ignoring the actual facts, and indeed, Governor Perry's answer to the death-penalty question asked of him Wednesday night reflected a staggering inattentiveness to the facts. As the founder of the Texas Innocence Project, I've had a couple of dozen clients executed during Perry's tenure as Governor. There are some I think could well have been innocent-- Frances Newton, for example, who supposedly killed her husband and two children without getting even a spot of blood or speck of gunpowder in herself; or Charles Nealy, who did not remotely match the description of the person who killed the convenience store clerk . But, there was no DNA in either case, and so I am left being unsure. It is not weak to be unsure. It is the only reasonable position in those murder cases—and it is the vast majority of them—that lack DNA evidence. Without DNA, certainty is usually impossible. Murderers get convicted on the basis of confessions, which can be coerced; eyewitness identifications, which can be mistaken; and pseudo-science like fiber analysis, which is often junk. Perry, however, continues to voice his confidence despite widespread evidence that the system is flawed. Anthony Graves spent 14 years on death row before being exonerated and released in 2010. He's not the only one: Ernest Willis, Michael Toney, Michael Blair, and Robert Springsteen are just a few of the others who have been released from death row during Governor Perry's tenure. Maybe Governor Perry has a good reason for believing that these are Texas' only mistakes, but if he has such a reason, I don't have any idea what it is. Then there's Cameron Todd Willingham, whose case suggests we probably don't catch errors all in time. He was executed in 2004–on Governor Perry's watch–for killing his three children by setting fire to their house. The problem is, every national arson expert to have reviewed the facts (there have been at least four) has concluded the fire was accidental. A committee investigating the case was preparing to hear from the nation's leading arson expert who intended to explain why there was no evidence that Willingham had committed any crime. On the eve of the expert's testimony, Governor Perry dissolved the committee. As Perry prepares for his presidential run, he's showing no signs of doubts. It's not just his debate answer. Next week, the state is set to execute my client, Duane Buck. At Buck's trial, the prosecutor urged the jury to sentence him to death on the basis that because Buck was black, he would be dangerous in the future. Earlier this summer, I had a client executed whose lawyer neglected to raise any issues during the very appellate process Governor Perry lauded during Wednesday's debate as a safeguard against mistakes. Two years ago, I had a client executed after prosecutors had removed all the blacks from the jury. One of my mentally retarded clients was executed because his previous lawyer neglected to inform the court of the inmate's IQ score. Another client was executed because the court of appeals refused to stay open past 5 p.m. so we could file a last-minute appeal. I don't know of any definition of fair that could be applied to these cases. Despite Governor Perry's certainty, and his characterization of a broken and racist regime as fair, the people of Texas seem to have developed a different view. Twenty years ago, there were 35 or sometimes 40 new death sentences a year. Last year there were nine. The year before that there were eight. The very people who have to decide whether someone should live or die seem to know there is no such thing as certainty. The bad news for Governor Perry is that those same people vote for president.

The New Breed - High society girl

Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry (1976)


Play That Funky Music - Wild Cherry (1976) Play That Funky Music" is a funk rock song recorded by the rock band Wild Cherry and written by lead vocalist and guitarist Robert Parissi. The song hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 18, 1976 and was also number one on the Hot Soul Singles chart. The single was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipments of over two million records. The autobiographical song was inspired by the times, and the song's unforgettable title and chorus came from drummer Ron Beitle's observation during a break between sets at the 2001 Club in Pittsburgh. The group was mostly a hard rock outfit, but the disco era was really gaining steam and many of the group's loyal followers were asking for more dance songs. While taking a break between sets, Ron uttered the now-classic line, "Play some funky music, white boy". Lead singer Robert Parissi decided they should, and wrote down the phrase on a bar order pad. They later recorded it in Cleveland with a disco sound. The song sold over two million copies, but was Wild Cherry's only hit. "Play That Funky Music was listed at #73 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of All Time.

Patti Hart writes about Rick Perry and the source of a mysterious $1 million donation

Patti Hart writes about Rick Perry and the source of a mysterious $1 million donation


Texas Gov. Rick Perry is facing a challenge to tamp down his cowboy persona and convince fiscal conservatives in this bedrock Republican primary state that he can win the GOP presidential nomination and the White House.
New Hampshire is one of the least religious-leaning states in the country and long considered the home turf of Mitt Romney, the former governor of neighboring Massachusetts who is running for the nomination on an economic platform, according to polls and Republican leaders.
Perry, a Christian conservative, sought to address that this weekend when he picked up endorsements from prominent GOP leaders here before he traveled to South Carolina for an appearance before a tea party-inspired forum.

‘Thirstin’ for a leader’

“I just think Americans are thirstin’ for a leader,” Perry told a couple hundred supporters at a sun-drenched, private afternoon reception sponsored by John Stephen, last year’s New Hampshire GOP gubernatorial nominee.
Perry took a few questions from the crowd and got at least one negative reaction when he responded to a question about a border fence along the Mexican border.

Perry said he is opposed to building a physical fence along the U.S./Mexico border, a position that puts him at odds with most tea party activists.
“The fact is, it’s 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that?” he said, adding, “And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good.”

But he said as president he would man the border with the National Guard, aircraft and law enforcement agents to stop drug and human smuggling.

“I’ll close the border down to that type of illegal activity,” Perry said.

Perry said the GOP presidential field was made up of good candidates, but “the differences between President Obama and myself are great.”
As governor, Perry said Texas gained 1 million jobs. Obama lost 1 million jobs as president, he said.
Perry’s base of Republican support is strong in the South and Midwest states, where tea party activists and social conservatives have a strong influence.

Bid to broaden appeal

The Texas governor’s flurry of events in recent weeks in this state, where fiscal conservatives hold sway, is seen as an attempt by Perry to broaden his national appeal and show he is a viable alternative to more centrist Republicans.
“Gov. Perry has a lot of potential, but he is unproven in my mind,” said Fergus Cullen, a former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party who remains unaligned with any of the GOP candidates in the primary race here.

“There are some people who expect him to be a cowboy who shoots from the hip,” Cullen said. Perry needs to avoid “feeding that perception.”
National polls show Perry is now the GOP presidential front-runner.
Romney had held a double-digit lead in New Hampshire polls taken before Perry entered the race. Romney dominated a field that included candidates Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., Rep. Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and others.
To boost his support, Perry attended Saturday receptions, and received endorsements from Stephen and former U.S. Sen. Gordon Humphrey, R-N.H.
Perry has attended multiple New Hampshire events since Aug. 13 when he entered the race.
But his appearances here have received mixed reviews, and some skepticism following controversial statements about global warming.

‘Tough guy’ element

What is evident is that Perry is brandishing more hawkish credentials than Romney or other candidates in the field, said Andy Smith, a New Hampshire University political scientist and pollster.
“There is an element of the tough guy – the guy who is willing to stand out and speak his mind and Perry is filling that masculine leadership void on the Republican side right now,” Smith said.
Smith said he expects Perry’s popularity in the state to increase in these early campaign months because of campaign appearances and media coverage.
“My sense is that he will bounce up” Smith said, adding that earlier polls have shown a blip in popularity for Bachmann and “whoever the candidate of the moment is.”
Last month, Perry touted his executive credentials and job creation in Texas during a “Politics and Eggs” confab with New Hampshire businessmen and women.
During that event, Perry vowed to be a pro-business president.
Playing up his fiscal conservative credentials would not be a bad strategy in New Hampshire, Smith said.
“In New Hampshire we just don’t have that much in the way of social conservatives,” Smith said.
“We are the second least religious state in the country so the things that push those social conservative buttons just don’t happen here.”

Marilyn Monroe Red Velvet Sitting Golden Dreams ( It Was Draftie)

MARILYN MONROE ADMITS SHE'S NUDE BLONDE OF CALENDAR

A photograph of a beautiful nude blonde on a 1952 calendar is hanging in garages and barbershops all over the nation today. Marilyn Monroe admited today that the beauty is she. S he posed, stretched out on rumpled red velvet for the artistic photo 3 years ago because "I was broke and needed the money".

"Oh, the calendar's hanging in garages all over town," said Marilyn. "Why deny it? You can get one any place. Besides, I'm not ashamed of it. I've done nothing wrong."

The beautiful blonde now gets a fat paycheck every week from an excited Twentieth Century-Fox studio. She's rated the most sensational sweater girl since Lana Turner....she lives in an expensive hotel room...She dines at Romanoff's. But in 1949 she was just another scared young blonde, struggling to find fame in the magic city, and all alone. As a child she lived in a Hollywood orphange. She was pushed around among twelve sets of foster parents before she turned an insecure sixteen.

"I was a week behind on my rent," she explained. "I had to have the money. A photographer, Tom Kelley, had asked me before to pose but I'd never do it. This time I called him and said I would. Tom didn't think anyone would recognize me. My hair was long then. But when the picture came out, everybody knew me. I'd never have done it if I'd known things would happen in Hollywood so fast for me."

In the aftermath of the calendar confession, Marilyn was harangued by journalists. In typical fashion, when asked if it was true she had nothing on when she posed, she replied "Oh no, I the radio on."

In December 1953 an asute man named Hugh Hefner bought the rights to reproduce the "Golden Dreams" photograph as the first centerfold in the first ever issue of Playboy magazine.

SEEKING INFORMATION: I have been reading about the original release of the Golden Dreams and New Wrinkle calendars. It seems like the details change depending which Marilyn book you are reading. I've read in a few that the original calendar released was actually "A New Wrinkle" in 1951. However, I have never seen one of these from that year - only a 1952. It then goes on to say that the Golden Dreams pose was released after the news broke that Marilyn was the calendar girl. This doesn't make sense either. Why was Golden Dreams the more popular pose and more importantly how could it have been released after the story broke?. It was March 1952 when Aline Mosby broke the story. I have a 1952 Golden Dreams calendar so does that mean they were made and released after the year had already started? Does anyone have any more information or documents about this?

Here is a video I did that features Marilyn speaking about her nude calendars. Watch it in HQ for best results.
