  1. Surely no one actually tried to direct Miss Jones. The safest idea was simply "Get out of her fucking way."

  7. From Fantastic Planet to Blood of a Poet to Green Acres in 3:30 ... that was a set full of "Why not?" I loved it.

  8. This clip is from Stryx, a bizarre Italian variety show from the seventies. I posted a number of videos from it on my old blog, will be posting more here. It's so insane, I love it!

  9. Stryx is one of my favourite discoveries ever - so very very gay indeed! I have featured several clips (including the faboo Amanda Lear and other divas) on my blog over the years. This one is the Divine Grace at her very best - I love it... Jx

  11. Oh dear, the fairy queen of italian set design was on acid.
    Couldn't make its mind on Dali, Cocteau,De Chirico...or the Phantom of the Opera!


    (why would my word verification be " diersult"? Is this a some sort of offensive anagram?)

  13. Grace does what Grace will do. That makes the Chickens all the more appropriate.

  14. Had the clip been two minutes longer, Edie the Egg Lady would have appeared, making the chickens self-explanatory.

  16. As much as I love Grace, I think it's safe to say I would've worked that cape far more capably.
