Age Shouldn't Matter Unless You're Cheese

What is it about aging that scares some of us? Is it the influx of age defying facial lotions advertised between sitcoms like Cougartown or the commercials of a dapper silver-haired fox driving through the desert in a truck for Viagra? Whatever the case, age isn’t something society is accustomed to embracing in a positive and quite frankly, age shouldn’t matter unless you’re cheese. If you are cheese, well that’s a pity because in most cases, you would smell like feet.

I had the honour of interviewing one of my favourite actors a few years ago and we stumbled upon the discussion of aging in the industry quite briefly. He told me that disclosing his age factors into some of the roles he wants and it does make sense, sadly. I think it has for many decades. Look at Hitchcock’s Vertigo for example with a then 25 year-old Kim Novak lip locking with a nearly double her age, Jimmy Stewart or The Misfits starring a 60 year-old Clark Gable with a 35 year-old Marilyn Monroe. Sure, it was downright hot but there were plenty of other actresses with sex appeal and talent who could have played those roles and been older.

merry christmas!!  
I just wanted to wish all my beloved lovelies, a very Merry Christmas! I really am so thankful to all of you for being a part of my life and for being there for me this year. I wouldn't have made it out without your love and support and just being a shoulder to lean on when times got tough. I don't think I can ever repay you all for the kindess you've shown me. You all are just amazing! <3

I come bearing a link. A link to one of MY favourite holiday movies ever. You all know it. IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. I found a YouTube link that's divided into 14 parts. I put it in a playlist that can be found here. It's the colourized version of the film. I know some of you are like, "ehh, black and white - borrrring!" so I thought, well why not this year share the colour version. It's just as fantastic and if watching the colour version gives you more reason to watch, then so be it!


So Merry Christmas to all! I wish you so much love, joy and happiness! :)
