...and now for something completely different...
BTW, hope y'all got to see the George Stevens bio if you wanted to...sorry for the lack of 'reminder'...long story short, I went into work Monday with a swollen face, decided to go to the dentist for x-rays, had an infected molar, had a root canal performed (note this was STILL Monday...no doubt a 'Garfield Monday'...) - and of course afterwards, have been out of commission for a few days... just now feeling a bit closer to 'normal'...
But, as for the George Stevens deal - have not seen it (have it taped, tho), but is basically a documentary of his career... probably more than a few references to Ginger in there, as he was quite smitten with her... sounds familiar, no? :-P
Anyway, have been kicking around a few ideas here and there for a 'post GingerMarch post'... and thought, "hey, how about a poll?" Y'all seem to enjoy those, so...
Here goes... this poll is a MAJOR departure for me, since it...well, basically is a 'non-positive' poll concerning Ginger... pretty shocking stuff, eh?
Over the last few weeks, I have heard many ramblings (from myself included) on various blogs on the topic of Ginger's hairstyles in various movies...most are quite favorable, as to be expected; but there are a few which were determined to be not the best 'look' for VKM... so I have noted a few (actually, three) of the movies where the 'predominant' hair style Ginger dons throughout the film is...really not up to 'Ginger Standards'... I have added pictures of these three styles from the three movies (in chronological order), as listed below...no comment from me on any of the three, lest I sway you... all of the movies are great, tho...
OK - I have placed the poll widgit up on the top right of the blog... can only vote for one...hey, there's only three choices, right? Again, Ginger's hair is awesome, no matter what...I think it is pretty much flawless when done up the right way... but these styles... just didn't work, for the most part... although there IS one of the three above I really think is not too bad... won't say which until after the proceedings...
Vote if you so desire...and tell your friends!
Keep It Gingery!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
