Four Types of Femme Fatales

An oldie but it still rings true … read and find out why:

A recent conversation with a very distraught and angry friend got me thinking about the damage women can do to men. Recently dumped by his girlfriend he ranted about how women are nothing but sneaky, gold digging liars who destroy men’s lives. I didn’t argue over his generalization or that he was talking to a woman. He was in too much pain to be challenged.

Basically, he bought her a new car, new boobs, a new nose and now she’s got a new man. She was a goddamn femme fatale he said. I had met the woman. So, I told him about the four types of femme fatale and since he’s a film buff I used a few movie references to support my descriptions
The Classic Femme Fatale in film noir seduces the man to commit the crime. In “Double Indemnity” Barbara Stanwyck two-times Fred MacMurray, but not before she convinces him to murder her husband. He couldn’t resist her so he killed for her. Classic femmes use their sexuality to compromise a man’s morality and ethics for a piece of prime tail that these men unknowingly have to share.

I love the bad boys …

He makes you feel squishy and gooey in all the right places. He’s tough, he’s dangerous and he’s hot. Bad boys make our blood boil and quiver our delicate loins. We know they’re not good for us, but why do we find them so damn irresistible?

He wasn’t very tall and he had funny looking ears, but the way Clark Gable swept Vivien Leigh up those stairs in “Gone with the Wind” makes my heart go pitter patter and other lady parts as well.  Read more of this post

Blooming romance at the grocery store

Just when I thought chivalry was dead, a tasty piece of beefcake, who looked like Keanu Reeves and Tom Selleck hybridized in one luscious body, let me go in front of him at the grocery store line. I said thank you and he said no problem. I thought he was too busy re-arranging the various “whatevers” inside his cart to notice me, but when he flashed a dimpled smile my way, my mind conjured images of Keanu and Tom ala threesome.

My Favorite Movie Quotes Re-Written My Way

As a movie lover and writer, I’ve taken the liberty to rewrite some of my favorite movie quotes to express my issues and neurosis in life.

*************************

“Gimme a whiskey, ginger ale on the side. And don’t be stingy, baby.”                             Greta Garbo, “Anna Christie,” (1930)

Gimme a chocolate cake with ice cream on top. And make that a double.

My Favorite Movie Moments

During the “be kind rewind” days of the 80s and 90s I had to press rewind and hope that I stopped the video at the right time to replay my favorite movie scene (what a pain). DVD made it easier because all I had to do was skip to a scene. Today, I just do a keyword search on You Tube and voilà … here are some of my favorite movie moments.

When “A Christmas Story” came out who knew that it would become a cult classic. This scene is one of the reasons why:

Today, we’re used to seeing the flying acrobatics made famous in Hong Kong cinema, but when I first saw this scene I thought I want to do that (in my dreams of course). The fight scene in “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” shows how two bad ass chicks can kick some bootie. Director Ang Lee is a master! And Michelle Yeoh freakin’ ROCKS.

Loved the series. I didn’t care for the movie except for his karaoke scene from “Sex and the City 2.”

I am Lafemme … hear me … Roar.

Happy Memorial Day everyone
