We have an exclusive from another family member – my beloved husband, Pete, discovered a connection while rewatching a favorite film of his youth: 1987’s Masters of the Universe. I give you his findings…
Friends and family,
During our screening of the 1987 tour de force Masters of the Universe; the Dolph Lundgren vehicle, and the one that you mistakenly remember as having co-starred Dabney Coleman, but then when you realize upon re-watching that it was actually this guy,
and also you are certain that they recycled a character from Legend…
…and you were right,
I made a fantastic discovery. Watch these two videos for details. I probably spent way too much time for relatively small payoff, but hopefully you find it as funny as I did.
I have some fabulousness to share! My friend, and brilliant poet, Olivia Cronk, is creating a docu-soap-opera-fantasy series. These videos are decadent visual poetry, linked to her current manuscript, _Interro-Porn_. And I am staring in Episode 1: “Did you summon my man to a railroad room?”!
I KNEW that P.J.-inspired dress would come in handy one day. I feel very fancy. I think I need wigs; lots of wigs, like a room of wigs. And an ombre brow.

I just bought and returned a maxi dress. And felt good about that decision after reading this:
Loved the article. Hilarious!
And I can relate. I was feeling good about my figure; that is, until I saw pictures of myself in a blue and white striped maxi (during our last CA visit). Totally unflattering; I looked like I was fartin’ around in a nightgown. That maxi dress was immediately donated (I don’t have a burning permit).
I then started researching my body shape – why do some dresses look good on me and others induce binge ice cream consumption? I had always figured I was either apple or hour-glass shaped, which is confusing because these two options really just cancel each other out. But here’s what I’m working with:
Historically, I’ve been focusing on points 1 and 2, but according to this super simplified quiz, I should have been focusing on points 3 and 4. After answering just one quiz question, it is decided that I have an inverted triangle body shape, and that “gut” actually CAN be ignored (with clever outfitting).
For me, Maxi dresses only play up the bad, and hide the good, point-for-point, as compared to my above listed characteristics:
With a decidedly inverted triangle body shape, I need structure.
These are the kinds of things I have been researching during my no-shopping-for-a-year cleanse; 259 days to go. In the interim, these are the summer dresses I will be thinking about.
Everything about this video is a fabulous lie, especially “I’m only going to say this once.” Its not even Alaska performing as Alaska the whole time. Brilliant.
There is truth. This IS her hair; she bought it; she has the receipt. And she is owning it.
Also, I like her hair.
