Does the Emperor wear clothes?

8 Comments

Deeply disappointing movie –  My Week with Marilyn.

Was Clark on oath with all the details? And could it actually have been his closet gay streak – not mentioned in this film – which Marilyn sensed more shrewdly than Colin himself, and which made her feel safe around him? Maybe. Either way, it is a beguiling adventure. Poor Colin, out of his league and out of his depth.  Here http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2011/nov/24/my-week-with-marilyn-review

And Michelle Williams does not even resemble Marilyn When I saw her interview on Charlie Rose – I should have known what to expect.  This is a video I will chuck in a box never to be watched again.

PS But you know there are people who love the emperor’s clothes and you can write a book about those that are long gone and nobody can step in to correct the facts.

There were vultures that used Marilyn exclusively for  their own advantage while she was alive and it seems they still do.

The one and only..

Don’t breathe you may swallow a bug!

What did you swallow today?

 

Starbucks is facing public scrutiny this week after it acknowledged that the red color used in its Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino and strawberry-flavored smoothies—cochineal extract—is derived from the cochineal bug that lives on the prickly pear cactus in South America.

 

I hate to burst the consumer bubble but cochineal extract has been used for DECADES!  And we have the cochineal bug in South Africa too!

 

So why all this excitement?

Carmine and cochineal, approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), provides a range of hues from orange to red to purple. These colors are usually stable in most food applications, including beverages and dairy products.

 

AND A DAMNED SIDE BETTER THAN ALL THE CHEMICALS WE CONSUME ON A DAILY BASIS!!!

 

I also read somewhere about how many bugs an average person swallows per year – accidental of course. Unless you go round eating stuff like that which you may do of course. But what you don’t know does not seem to kill.
