I've been VERY fortunate to 'get to know' many great fans of Ginger, and of classic films in general, by this blog... and although it seems that FB has somewhat 'diminished' blogging, hopefully there's still a spot in the big ol' internet to keep these sites going.
And although G-ology was created 7/5/09, it really took a few weeks to figure it all out... the following is the first 'Gingery' post I...um...'posted' , on 8/4/09:

Well, I think I may have it going here...
Anyway, 'Gingerology' sounds a bit more interesting... since we all are 'searching and digging' for those Ginger movies which, for some asinine reason, are NOT on DVD (I'm still waiting for the 75-DVD Box Set with all her movies, digitally remastered, of course, loaded with extra features, rare outtakes, audio commentary, etc., along with the complete audio recordings of VKM, digitally remastered to pristine condition... and also containing a 'coffee table'-size 400-page photo book... has anyone heard if they are getting it out by this Christmas this year?? :-O ...well, one can hope, I guess.)
ANYWAY, I also added a list of my 'Ginger Search' travails, VKM movies I have possession of in one form or more... I have plowed through eBay as of late, and really bolstered the list... everything received so far has been in pretty fair shape...the only thing is, be quick about it... there was a VHS of 'Lady in the Dark' (quickly becoming one of my favorites, as seen on YT), and I was going to bid on it or whatever, but just didn't do it quick enough. But stuff is constantly changing on there, so it's worth messing with - and typically the prices are reasonable.
SO, hopefully that gives y'all a bit of 'update' on where Gingerology is headed... I will put my long-winded observations on here, but still faithfully post on Beth's cool site!
Please feel free to reply, and hope you 'jump on' this blog, along with others concerning VKM!!!
...one thing that jumps out at me is the fact that... there just weren't that many GingerFilms available at the time... as compared to NOW, anyway... and it appears that the Saga of Jenny was only available via the YouTube clip, but had me pretty well mezmorized... duh!
...but over time, we all 'obtained' GingerFilms, thru various and sundry means... until we each had purt near every one...except... Hat Check girl, of course. Now, here's a Huey Idiosyncrasy you may not be aware of... but, I am VERY big on obtaining an artist's ENTIRE output, good, bad or indifferent... SO, when HCG was unaccounted for, it really was a bummer... but HEY! Thanks to latter-day Gingerologist extraordinaire, GingerPeachy, there are restored copies of it, and will most likely find its way into the 'common Gingerologists' hands one of these days... AWESOME!!!

...and, in general, just some GREAT stuff regarding our girl... including a musical slant including:
...Topics which got our Gingery dander up, such as the Sandrich deal above, among others:
...there were plenty of varmints Ginger encountered, such as...
...and other awesomely 'random' GingerPics, such as...
...well, there's LOADS more stuff we are all into, such as Arianna's awesome birthday cakes... ...folks draining bank accounts due to GingeBay practices... ...HueyTreatments of GingerFilms... ...Ginger's tennis prowess...
Again, thanks for your support of this blog! ...and here's to another five, and five more, and five more, and...
Love to all of y'all!!! ...well, except the dudes...who get a 'rock on, dude!' instead... :-)
