Nope. Made me feel old. I mean, the getting old thing also plays a big part in the feeling old thing but this definitely contributed to the feeling old thing in and of itself.
Elsa Lanchester in The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
Fun facts about “The Bride” :
- "The Bride", the most obscure of Universal Studios’ Classic Monsters, is on screen for less than five minutes and is the only "Classic Monster" never to have killed anyone.
- Elsa Lanchester’s shock hairdo was held in place by a wired horsehair cage.
- Elsa Lanchester was only 5’4” but for the role was placed on stilts that made her 7’ tall. The bandages were placed so tightly on her that she was unable to move and had to be carried about the studio and fed through a straw.
- Elsa Lanchester said that her spitting, hissing performance was inspired by the swans in Regent’s Park, London. “They’re really very nasty creatures,” she said. (x)
Man is defined as a human being and woman as a female – whenever she behaves as a human being she is said to imitate the male.
What I failed to do here, and what I’ll be doing in the future with Alton, is separate the televised persona from the man himself – I had expected Real Life Alton to be as genial and friendly as Television Alton. He’s not – he’s a good deal more cynical and curmudgeonly. I don’t know what I should have expected – it’s like I expected Stephen Colbert to actually be the Bill O’Reilly caricature he inhabits on the air. I blame myself, really. But when I was in Cedar Rapids, I bought Jacques Pépin’s memoir, The Apprentice. It’s excellent so far, but if he turns out to have been a collaborator under Maréchal Pétain, I’ll be fresh out of heroes. Probably that won’t be the case, since he was a little kid during WWII – but if he turns out to be an asshole, I don’t know what I’ll do with myself. I’m resolved to never find out, because I think I’d like never to meet Pepin now – not because of any ill will I bear him, but for the opposite reason: the real man might not bear up against the narrative I’ve constructed for him.

Hey! I walk down there sometimes!
FUCKING THANK YOU!!
I’m pretty mad that “smile” is mucking up my game with dudes I would actually want to talk to.
Every day, it seems like we get more exciting news about finding a cure for cancer — and this latest update is taking us one step closer to a breakthrough.
Back in May, the Mayo Clinic made the much-awaited announcement that a blood cancer patient treated with experimental virotherapy had a positive reaction to the treatment.
I don’t get why everyone seems to be under the impression that feminists hate men.
That’s not true at all! We Love men!
…Well, not ALL men.
I told myself I’d reblog this when I got home if it was still funny.
