Yes, I saw Twilight — my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, ‘Now that’s a vampire film!’ And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!

When [Marlon] Brando died in 2004, aged 80, among the prized possessions at his home was one solitary piece of Hollywood memorabilia: a picture of him locked in a passionate kiss with Rita Moreno that had hung in his study. After all those years he had never let her go.

Lauren’s my other mother. She’s the one who always said to me, `Have a baby.’ And she was the one that was so wonderful to me when Keith went through a lot of his stuff. She got on the phone and really helped me through it.

That was an extraordinary thing for me. [Tom] taught me an enormous amount—as a girl into a woman. Absolutely, I would do it again.

If I had to say who I thought the best singers were, I’d say first that I don’t know there’s a definitive answer as in my opinion it’s subjective, and second that my focus is primarily rock singers,

That said, I enjoy Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Paul McCartney, [Nazareth singer] Dan McCafferty, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Roger Daltrey, Don Henley, [Electric Light Orchestra frontman] Jeff Lynne, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, [jazz singer] Jimmy Scott, Etta James, Fiona Apple, [Pretenders frontwoman] Chrissie Hynde, Stevie Wonder, James Brown and a ton of others (predominantly Seventies rock singers) and would rather hear any of them anytime rather than me!

I love The Jane Austen Book Club. The movie and the book go well together. There’s no “this is worse” or “this is better” kind of debate. They go well together.

And because I love it so much, here’s the movie script: [x]

The articles of Rembert Explains the 80’s are always good reads. This time he discusses the American Music Awards 1985. [x]

Because life has a lot more color in the 80’s.
