Important Disaster Update


I had not one, not two, but THREE tchotchkes fall over (!!!) on a shelf in my apartment yesterday, so don't tell ME about suffering, Haiti.

Don't worry, Princess. Anderson Copper will adopt you!

But you didn't say fall over and break, did you?

Some Californians are mocking the East Coasters, but any quake near 6.0 is pretty darned serious. We had a little one near 3.0 last night just before I went to bed and it made one take notice.

Three less things your maid won't have to feather dust. I heard on CNN this a.m. that the West Coast was making fun of us, and one Tweeter responded, "California is so poor, they had to give us their earthquakes."

That movie looks like it contains much awfulness. MarJoe! George Kennedy! Lornee Greeeenee! Gun-Boy Heston!

"Earthquake" the movie was so bad that it made yesterday's actual event almost enjoyable by comparison. Although a gewgaw fell off our mantel and broke, and many drawers opened, and all wall hangings went crooked. Kinda freaky!

Genevieve Bujold! Victoria Principal!

There is so much about this "classic" poster ("Recommended as ADULT ENTERTAINMENT") that is great.

The suffering is widespread.

OMG!!!! And the ABC affiliate in DC had video from a woman who saw waves in her swimming pool!!! Much scarier than a tsunami!!!

I took acid with some other young homos when I first moved to San Francisco in 1975 and we all went to "Earthquake" in Sensurround. It was frightening on all kinds of levels, from Lorne Greene playing Ava Gardner's father and Marjoe trying to rape Victoria Principal to Los Angeles being leveled Real Good while our butts jiggled along with the audio special effects.

And of course you must know that a 5.9 quake in Virginia is equivalent to a 9.1 in Haiti, just for the massive destruction to white people's tchotchkes alone.

I thought that was Marjoe (7th from the left.) I "had" to Wiki him. I was sure he would have returned to the PULL-pit, but "no."

I, too, saw Earthquake in Sensurround. It was awesome!

Hey! I saw that movie in the theater with live surround sound and everything. You wanna talk subwoofers? Yeah, baby.

Okay, so you survived the sneezes. How are you making nice with Irene?
