Ambitious Blonde

We're in full San Francisco mode over here tonight, so decided to watch "Vertigo" for the first time tonight, also as part of addressing my Hitchcock blindspot. Enjoyed it -- and found Kim Novak to be utterly mesmerizing. But I'd hardly call it the best film of all time -- as the British Film Institute did -- or even one of the best. (Am wondering if it's even his best. I think Midge needs her own film.)  Plan to watch "Rebecca" next.

What's YOUR recommendation?

I will be in San Francisco tomorrow thru Friday -- a city I frequented in the late '80s and '90s but have not visited since 1998! Where should I go -- has anything changed? :-)

Sandra Linings Playbook

I'm not happy with Sirius-XM's decision to shutter OutQ. But I will say that Radio Andy's "Sandyland" is an unexpected treat from the fallout. Girl sings over records, incoherently reads articles from newspapers and does zero research on any her guests, yet somehow it's always a little bit of magic. You remember what I'm talking about ...
