Dean Johnson was Right: Mona Lisa WAS a Drag Queen

A team of forensic art researchers in Italy have concluded that Mona Lisa “was a boy” — a pretty young thing who sat for Leonardo on more than one occasion. While this news might be rocking the art world, it comes as no surprise to the fans of my dearly departed friend Dean Johnson. Dean’s song, Mona Lisa (recorded with the Velvet Mafia) informed us of this ages ago…

Renaissance beauty
Sly coquette
But what you see isn’t what you get…
Mona Lisa
Mona Lisa
Mona Lisa was a drag queen…

From the very fun album We Know Where You Live by The Velvet Mafia.

R.I.P. Tura Satana

Screen goddess Tura Satana has died, which is very sad. Words fail me now — I can’t find the right way to describe the importance of the big-boobed, psycho antihere to both cinema and culture at large.

So I’ll just post this awesome still from her best and most-known film, Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Producers of “V” must be reading my blog…

Last year I wrote an open letter to the producers of the ABC remake of “V”; a little list of suggestions conceived to help punch up the show a bit.   The popularity of the remake took the network and producers by surprise — you may recall that it was pronounced dead on arrival before it even aired.

But scifi fanboys and girls saved the day, ensuring that “V” would indeed have a future.  But we are a fickle and hypercritical lot, so I offered some tips to help them keep the fans.

Well, I am pleased to report that they have adopted at least one of these suggestions: that any remake of “V” must, must recreate the famous rat-eating sequence from the 1980’s version.

As the photo shows, they did not disappoint!
