Like you would go to a truck stop.

Douglas scares me, looking into the computer and stuff.

What astonishes me, living in the UK, is the number of people in other forums who are talking about Bettie. She seems to have been a huge influence not just in America but also here in old Blighty.

It is just such a shame that an artist has to grow old an eventually die. They should really be exempt in my opinion. They should continue forever, or like the elves of Tolkien until they grow weary of life. That seems fairer to me.

The Bettie Page I have long admired was long gone before I was even born. She should have remained that beautiful curvacious womanforever.

She winked at me! My knees have just turned to jelly. . .

Were any more recent photos published?

From the reappearance in the early nineties until now, the later mid-aughts, I'm wondering about changes in appearance after the events in middle age.

I don't want to know. I'd rather have that wink cemented in my mind forever.

Vampirella, oh yes, Vampirella. . .

No, Frank, she did not look like Vampira.

But she could have played the role quite admirably. If the character existed in the 50s. . .

Vampira wore plenty of makeup, so we both may be wrong.

What I'd really like to see is a girlfight between Bettie and Marilyn wearing nothing but garterbelts, stockings, Hitchcockian black pumps, cone bras and rumba panties. I guess Marilyn's would be hot pink satin, Bettie's would be black...

They'd start out circling one another, Marilyn with her hair down, famous pout quivering into a snarl, Bettie's smile clenching back over her gums into a growl. Then they'd pounce! And start pulling each others' hair and slapping each other. Bettie would trip Marilyn and they would both end up on the floor, squirming around, each one trying to pin the other for domination and a sound spanking...

hmmm.... Damn, sometimes having a good imagination and not enough computing power...really sucks.

Mike, you never saw Plan 9 From Outer Space?? Vampira is in that. How can you call yourself human and tell me you never saw the single best bad movie ever.

Gwynnie, you have a truly lovely imagination.

Among other things.
War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus
