Last week of 2017...

Well, hope everyone out there had a VERY Gingery Christmas!  We here at Gingerology are working on a few things here and there... first off, the Busby Berkeley Blogathon review for Gold Diggers of 1933 is under construction, and will appear in late January... it's cool to be part of that!
ouch... PAINFULLY beautiful, y'all...

...and other stuff? well, I'm thinking of 'expanding' the 'Day in Gingerology' feature to add pics... might be a cool addition to 'put a face to a name' when one is mentioned...

...the LIFE mag cover thang is still lying around (or HANGING around, on the wall, specifically), needing to be DONE... hopefully will be resumed... Mrs. Huey is getting tired of looking at empty 11x14 frames on the wall...
...and of course, just a 'upkeep' of All Things Ginger... I am trying to figure out how to implement a Facebook / Blog 'parallel universe'... only way I know is to actually start a Gingerology group on FB, which would be cool in and of itself, but... would step on the toes of the already wickedawesome FB groups for Ginger that exist... eh, I'll think about it... maybe just a 'Day in Gingerology' page on FB?

...another thing which may happen sooner rather than later is an 'inventory' of my Gingerbilia... there's a fair amount of stuff I have 'obtained' over the last few years, and need to document them here, as well as displaying them... stay tuned...
...wish I had this one... heck, maybe I DO... again, inventory is needed...

Speaking of Gingerbilia, did anyone get any cool stuff for Christmas? This question would probably fare better on FB, where folks can comment a LOT easier... sigh... some choices to make here regarding format and media avenues... anyway...

KIG, y'all, and have a VERY Gingery New Year!!!

...Miscellaneous Ginger Stuff...

...well, it's dang near December, which is always a good time to see what's up regarding Ginger (well, when is it NOT a good time to talk about Ginger?) ...and, being the Gingerologist that I am, I remember the year TCM played the majority of Ginger and Fred films on Thanksgiving... although we (hopefully) all have them, it's still cool to see them on 'national TV'.

Well, what's UP, y'all???  I am trying to get back into the 'swing' of things here in the blogosphere... with that, I have volunteered to do a 'guest post' for the WordPress blog Hometowns to Hollywood, as part of a Busby Berkeley Blogathon! My contribution will be Gold Diggers of 1933 (42nd Street was already taken) - but actually it will be pretty cool to review all of the BB stuff from this one, from my favorite opening 4 minutes of ANY film, "We're In The Money", to the epic finale of "My Forgotten Man" as delivered by Joan Blondell... and all the Busby-esque stuff in-between... BTW, if y'all have any insights for this post, PLEASE feel free to add it... just e-mail or message me...   Here's the link to Annette's awesome site!:    Hometowns To Hollywood Blog 

...should be pretty cool!

...in another story... Have y'all checked out the 'official' Ginger Rogers website' as of late? I will say it is a lot cooler in it's 'navigation', but... at the end of the day, it's the same 'general info' it's always had... which is good, but... STILL think there should be a lot more 'current events', TV airings, etc. on the site.  As a reminder, here's the 'old' look:
...and HERE'S the link to the 're-vamped' site...  ...I will say that the new 'header pic' from 'Magnificent Doll' is VERY breathtaking... awesome colorization work! But I say we just get the 'owners' of this webpage to let Monica (along with the rest of we Gingerologists) run the website, and it will be WICKEDAWESOME!!!

...and, just as a 'Miscellaneous Gingery Moment'... here's a shirt I think all of us would dig to don for the season...
...probably need to figure out where this one comes from... ...a quick Goggle search showed quite a few with this 'theme', but this one really is the coolest, and of course did not show up on the search... oh, well, just know these are out there, and would be pretty cool...

As to other things - I am going to TRY to get going on a few 'tangible' GingerProjects in the next few weeks... I'm taking off the week between Christmas and New Years, hopefully time to revamp some stuff... need to do some work on the 'GingerFilm' sites, finish the LIFE cover framing project, and... sorting out all my current Gingerbilia, which I wish to display in my home office... I'll hopefully post some stuff on that later... ...until that righteous day,

...KIG, y'all!

...um... ...what month is this again?

...um... guess I've got some explaining to do, lest I incur the wrath of Miss Glory... well, it's really been pretty hectic the last few months, with the young 'uns in school, and thus a nightly regimen of homework and getting ready for bed...  add to this the fact that my work is quite busy as well, and... seems like time is just flying away...

So, it's been kinda hard to find time to dedicate to Gingerology...
...um... yeah she's not buying that at all... ...a total, albeit not so systematic, dismantling of the Tower of Huey's Record Books...  it's gonna take a LOT of work to get back in good graces... ...on a side note, I've never seen anyone look more beautiful whilst tossing tomes at twits...

So, with that, I'll keep ducking, and try to get back on track here, y'all... hope all is well with everyone out there - I think most of y'all are over on FaceBook, and the group over there (well, there's several GingerGroups, but one of the larger ones is 'It's a Ginger Thing), so we are in touch or whatever... but this blog needs to keep rolling, right?

...ah, better already... So, with that, everyone Keep It Gingery - and we'll get more Gingery Goodness on here soon!!!

...Ginger and Freddie are ready... with quite stylish eclipse-ready eye-wear (yes, ISO Certified, per the rigorous test procedures of  HTLI (Huey Testing Laboratories Internationale))... Hope y'all are ready as well, and hope those within the 'band' or whatever enjoy clear skies and SAFE viewing!!! I am quite a bit gun-shy about viewing directly, no matter the apparatus available, two eye surgeries later...so I'll just catch up on social media (...I DO hope SOMEBODY videos it. and then posts it...  :-)  ).
Miss Fortune is also going to check out the phenomenon... with the same Huey-approved specs, of course... it's another title for Huey - Miss Rogers' Protective Eye-wear Technician (PET)... um... yep, I am VERY happy being Miss Rogers' PET... ;-)

KIG, y'all!!!

The Day of Ginger on TCM is upon us!!!

...well, it's always an awesome thing for TCM to show ANY GingerFilm, but when she is one of the 'Summer of Stars' subjects, thus garnering an entire DAY of her films, it's really a cause for celebration!
...well, the 'list' is conveniently provided in the 'Ginger on Television' section above... hopefully some of y'all can 'obtain' some of those films you have yet to see... for some of us, we are just waiting for the airing of Hat Check Girl (It WILL happen one day, y'all...)... but in the meantime, it's fun to just sit back and watch all Ginger, all Day... only way it would be cooler is if were on a Saturday or Sunday... Friday isn't bad - you can always sneak out of work early, right?
...as for the lineup, it's really a pretty nice cross-section of her career... NO 42nd Street or Gold Diggers of 1933 here, which is actually apropos, as, although Ginger was awesome in both, let's face it, she was not the main character in either, and really didn't get much face time in either, especially '33'... additionally, only three Freddie films are included - Rio, Top Hat, and Follow the Fleet, which has Ginger's first solo dance number in the G&F series. Not really sure if Rio is the best pick here - yeah it was G&F's first go-round, and Honey Hale is Da BOMB, but... I would probably sub out with Carefree...
...yepyepyep...shure would...

And, as to the 'true solo' GingerFilms, all chosen are pretty awesome - well, a few get under my skin as to plot (Chance at Heaven does NOT make sense, y'all.. I would probably 'replace' it with In Person or Vivacious Lady) ...but it's cool that they are showing a few which are not in the regular 'GingerRotation' at TCM, like Twenty Million Sweethearts, Tight Spot, and Dreamboat...she really is so gorgeous in this one, and it's really kind of funny how they do the 'silent film' sequences...

SO...overall a pretty nice slate (no such thing as a BAD GingerFilm, right? ...well, at least the GINGER parts... ) so, just set the DVR / VCR / whatever you have, and hopefully capture the GingerFilms you need... I might just load up my DVR on the big screen downstairs... can't have too many back-ups, right?

Well, hope everyone is doing well out there... We have had a good bit going on here with sorting through all of my in-law's belongings - over 40 years in the same house tends to accumulate LOTS of stuff... been tough on Mrs. Huey having to let go of stuff... but it's almost complete, and with her brother moving in the house, it helps out a good bit as to the transition (it's next door to us).

So, keep us in thoughts and prayers a bit for some sense of closure, at least in the 'physical realm'...

And until later...



Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!
