Jane Russell dead at 89 years old

Jane Russell, legendary Hollywood sex symbol of the 40s and 50s passes away peacefully in California

(CBS/AP)  Jane Russell passed away at her home in California Monday, surrounded by her children, reports KCOY-TV. The legendary Hollywood sex symbol of the 40s and 50s - described by some as the sassy brunette counterpart to Marilyn Monroe's ditsy blonde bombshell - was 89 years old.

Russell leaves behind three children, six grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

Veteran Associated Press Hollywood correspondent Bob Thomas reported in 2000 that Russell was married to her high school sweetheart, Bob Waterfield, for most of her film career. They adopted three children and divorced after 23 years of marriage. Her second marriage, in 1969 to actor Roger Barrett, ended after three months when he died suddenly. In 1972, she married real estate broker and builder John Peoples; he died in April 1999.

Thomas wrote that Russell's house is filled with her color-splashed paintings, but little evidence of her movie past. The exception is a hallway filled with photos of her with Robert Mitchum, Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Monroe and other co-stars.

Russell's fame was carefully nurtured early in her career by another Hollywood legend: Howard Hughes. Thomas wrote that her ample cleavage and good looks helped make her one of the most sought-after pinups of World War II.

In 1941, Hughes cast her as the temptress in his "sex Western," "The Outlaw," a movie that gained notoriety because censors kept the film from general release until 1950 in a dispute over Russell's cleavage. Thomas reports that Bob Hope once introduced her as "the two and only Jane Russell."

She appeared and starred in dozens of films and theatrical productions throughout her career. She also wrote an autobiography in 1985 called "My Path and Detours." Her biggest box-office hits were "Paleface" with Hope, and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" with Monroe.

Happy Oscar Day

Wow a full day of Oscar The Grouch! Hollywood is rolling out the Red Carpet for the man in green and his aluminum can!

While I believe award shows like the Academy Awards, The Grammy's etc. are ridiculous, I will be attending a potluck tonight for this. Maybe we will even hit the James Franco party post awards. I have lived in LA for over a decade and have never bothered.

TECH: FL Studio - Mobile App

I was just speaking with both the creator and also one of the owner's of Image-Line, who are responsible for the music software, FL STUDIO.

In the works is a mobile version for the iphone, ipad/ipod market which is being developed by Xewton, who currently have a music app available.

The FL Studio mobile will have a step sequencer, piano roll and full song playlist just like the traditional software. You can save the files from the mobile app and load them into the desktop version when you arrive at home or are in front of a regular studio setup :)

Much to my sadness, there is no plan for an android version at this time.

Come back here, on MyLiveTube, for an exclusive interview with Jean-Marie Cannie of FL Studio when the product is officially released :)

China bans reincarnation???? hahahahah

They have taken it up a notch! This is for real!!!

Amplify’d from

In one of history's more absurd acts of totalitarianism, China has banned Buddhist monks in Tibet from reincarnating without government permission. According to a statement issued by the State Administration for Religious Affairs, the law, which goes into effect next month and strictly stipulates the procedures by which one is to reincarnate, is "an important move to institutionalize management of reincarnation." But beyond the irony lies China's true motive: to cut off the influence of the Dalai Lama, Tibet's exiled spiritual and political leader, and to quell the region's Buddhist religious establishment more than 50 years after China invaded the small Himalayan country. By barring any Buddhist monk living outside China from seeking reincarnation, the law effectively gives Chinese authorities the power to choose the next Dalai Lama, whose soul, by tradition, is reborn as a new human to continue the work of relieving suffering.

At 72, the Dalai Lama, who has lived in India since 1959, is beginning to plan his succession, saying that he refuses to be reborn in Tibet so long as it's under Chinese control. Assuming he's able to master the feat of controlling his rebirth, as Dalai Lamas supposedly have for the last 600 years, the situation is shaping up in which there could be two Dalai Lamas: one picked by the Chinese government, the other by Buddhist monks. "It will be a very hot issue," says Paul Harrison, a Buddhism scholar at Stanford. "The Dalai Lama has been the prime symbol of unity and national identity in Tibet, and so it's quite likely the battle for his incarnation will be a lot more important than the others."

Watts Towers: amazing art struggling

Ever since my friend Trishy visited a few years ago, when friends come to town, I introduce out of town friends to the amazing art attraction of Simon Rodia, who also created building facades in Philadelphia. Presently, this structure and attached museum are facing financial fatigue. Please read the attached article.

A Hidden Treasure Struggles in Los Angeles

Watts Towers, long an attraction for Europeans interested in the work of the artist Simon Rodia, is otherwise far off the path of visitors to Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES — The Watts Towers rose up against a clear blue sky as James Janisse unlocked the 10-foot-high gate that surrounds the soaring outdoor sculpture. “Behold the work of the man,” said Mr. Janisse, a tour guide, and his audience took it in: the Gaudiesque mashup of towers, cathedrals, fountains and ships, constructed from pipes, broken bottles, seashells and cracked ceramic, climbing 100 feet into the air.

The towers are an iconic work of folk art with a back story — built by an eccentric Italian immigrant working alone in his yard over 33 years — that is nearly as captivating as the installation itself.

But they are endangered, threatened by budget cuts that are crushing governments across the nation. And they are struggling to draw crowds to this neighborhood that is far off the tourist track and is still identified, despite the passage of so much time, with some of the worst urban riots in American history.

Amid increased concern about the towers’ fate, the City of Los Angeles, which operates the installation, last month contracted the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to restore and maintain it; the three city workers in charge of taking care of the site were lost to budget cuts. The museum is turning to its donor network to raise money for the project — preliminary estimates put the initial restoration at $5 million — and not incidentally, to promote the installation to arts patrons in Los Angeles itself.

“The towers need care,” said Michael Govan, the museum’s director. “They are one of the most extraordinary works of art in the nation. I send everybody to see it; it is so compelling.”

But for the museum, promoting the towers might be as daunting as keeping them in shape. Mr. Janisse’s tour group the other day consisted of five paying tourists, two of them from Italy. Officials said a majority of the 45,000 people who visit each year are from overseas. The Watts Towers may hold the twin distinctions of being perhaps the finest example of indigenous Los Angeles art and the least known, or least visited, by people who live in the region.

“They have not been marketed well in this city,” said Luisa Del Giudice, a scholar who organized a conference on the Watts Towers in 2009 for the University of Genoa and the University of California, Los Angeles. “You get a lot of Europeans coming, and the first thing they want to do is see the Watts Towers. It’s an international icon, but it’s a local blind spot.”

They are not easy to visit. The towers are open for tours just four days a week. Most people who come to Watts view the installation from outside the locked gates, an impressive enough view but one that deprives visitors of the dazzling details inside: the cactus garden, church buttresses, detailed flowers decorating the floor and what remains of the house of the man who built it all, Simon Rodia.

The attendance problem is due, as much as anything, to where the towers are: 18 miles from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (which had 914,396 visitors last year), 25 miles from Disneyland (which drew 15.9 million visitors in 2009) and 13 miles from downtown Los Angeles. They are hard to find without a map, or a G.P.S. device.

More than that, no matter how this South Los Angeles neighborhood has changed over the years, Watts is remembered for the grainy television images of urban violence in 1965, and again in 1992. The South Central riots that year brought a visit to the area by Bill Clinton, then a Democratic candidate for president, who stopped by the home of Representative Maxine Waters.

The towers are here because Mr. Rodia, the artist, settled on a plot of land that was large enough to hold what would be 17 structures in his installation and provided a captive audience. It is adjacent to an abandoned trolley. The other plot he considered would have been more accessible, on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Just as well: the Beverly Hilton, now on that site, is in the heart of one of the most fashionable shopping strips in the country.

City officials said they were hopeful that the art museum, with its devoted clientele, would steer more people to this part of town. Mr. Govan said one idea being considered was to run a regular shuttle bus to Watts from the museum itself, which is along Museum Mile in the Mid-Wilshire section of Los Angeles.

Yet none of this promises to be easy. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, known as Lacma, is in many ways a symbol of Los Angeles society and wealth, and its perceived intervention in an overwhelmingly Hispanic neighborhood long identified with poverty has been uneasy.

People who work at the Watts Towers Art Center, which runs the tours, are deeply skeptical of the museum’s involvement, with some suggesting that Lacma is trying to co-opt Watts Towers to raise money for its other endeavors.

“I am trying to figure out what Lacma is doing here,” said Rosie Lee Hooks, the director of the center, which celebrates the towers and includes local contemporary art. “We’ve been here 50 years. I think they ought to plan about what they need to do, and come down and meet with us before they start showing the baby off.”

Still, Ms. Hooks added: “We have not had to raise money until now as a city facility. The dollars are running out. We realize we have to bring in some supporters.”

Meat Beat Manifesto - "Waterphone" & live in LA

If you know me well, you understand my connection to the music by Jack Dangers aka Meat Beat Manifesto. Since the later 80s, I have been an avid fan and have been very fortunate to have hung with this visionary on occasion. His influence on not just my own music but pop culture has been massive yet he has remained under the wire for his career. There would also be no Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, drum n bass, dubstep and beyond.

Meat Beat Manifesto perform their audio visual spectacle tomorrow evening at El Rey in Los Angeles.

Bryan Ferry - Song To The Siren (Jools Holland Later Nov 2010)

From Tim Buckley to This Mortal Coil with Elizabeth Fraser of Cocteau Twins and beyond... here is Bryan Ferry (Roxy Music) performing his rendition on Later with Jools Holland.



I am sharing this version of Cascadeur's Walker as the way he embellishes the song in this recent performance is quite interesting in that such as simple song can grow in precise, significant ways.

Thanks again to Robert Murphy for introducing me to this music last year as it found its way to my top albums of 2010 as well as remaining nested as a favorite this year.

If you like, Jeff Buckley, Jude, Elton John, This Mortal Coil, 4ad, you should enjoy.
