    I. Love. Bettie. Page.

    That is all.

    My girlfriend found a DVD in the “Adult Audiences” section of Borders that has a bunch of shorts with Bettie Page in some bondage scenes. It’s actually more silly than extreme, and if you can get past the cheesy burlesque tunes, it can be quite entertaining.

    I don’t think we’re going to be watching it frequently, so I could probably talk her into lending it to you, Lauren. By the way, the tag line is “a kinky look at Betty (sic) Page from both sides of the lash”.

    If it’s MacLaine I’ll eat my own toenail clippings.

    I would say she could beat the devil out of me anytime, but in a family friendly post Janet Jackson boob kind of way. Or not.

    At least according to the Bettie Page Shrine (to which Waveflux links), that original picture was indeed Bettie. So please don’t eat your own toenails, Lauren!

    My bangs, after I butchered them, finally grew out and now no longer look like Page’s and look more like they were meant to in the first place–like Chrissie Hynde’s.

    This is why it’s tough to have heroes. Page moved back to Kingsport, Tenn. She refuses interview requests and rejects association with the community that, in many ways, grew out of Irving Klaw’s work with her. There are rumors she’s an evangelical.

    Put her in the Norma McCorvey camp.
