Candy Barr

Candy Barr was an American stripper, burlesque exotic dancer, actress in one pornographic movie, and model in men’s magazines of the mid 20Th. century. I love her dance moves in this clip from the film “My Tale Is Hot” from 1964. The music is the song The Stroll by The Diamonds.

Tales Of Endearment

Hope you all have had a lovely day today. I have a blog recommendation for you guys, it’s called Tales Of Endearment. The reason I found this blog is because Amalie Bruun sent me the link to the recent blog-post, featuring a video with her music. The blog is written by Natalie Joos, who’s a Fashion Consultant and Casting Agent living in Brooklyn, NYC. Here’s the video with Amalie’s music, Natalie tells about her sister Evelien Joos. Very beautiful.

One Thousand Pictures

HBO really knows how to do good TV. They recently had the premiere for a new documentary called “One Thousand Pictures“. It’s created by Jennifer Stoddart to tell the story of Robert Kennedy’s funeral train through the stories of many of the people who waited to see it. This story is particularly told through the photographs of Paul Fusco who was on the train tirelessly taking pictures of the vast cross section of Americans who came to pay their respects to the assassinated Senator.
