This is your place to talk about the TV, movies, music, books and art that are thoroughly entertaining you.
This is going to be short and sweet, because I'm fucking with my anxiety meds and life is hard. But yesterday "Earth Girls Are Easy" came on TV and I watched it for the first time. First of all, man some batshit insane movies got made in the late 80s. Secondly, Jeff Goldblum, AM I RIGHT?
Anyway, there are a lot of crazy/great clothes in this movie, mostly featured on Julie Brown (of the non-downtown variety). I did a little research on her life today and discovered that she currently writes Weird Al-esque parody songs like this one of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." I kid you not, it's called "Big Clown Pants."
But it wasn't until the scene at a gas station when a pink Corvette pulled into frame that I audibly gasped. And that was before THIS GODDESS got out:
This woman is everything I want to be, I swear to God. My army of social media weirdoes told me that her name is Angelyne, she's a singer/actress/model/L.A. institution, and it's considered good luck to pass her in her pink Corvette. Here's a picture of her in the 70s with her punk band Baby Blue.
In my opinion, she has only gotten more fabulous.
I recently wrote about a bunch of my other movie style icons but now Angelyne may have trumped them all. What movie character makes you want to throw away your whole wardrobe and become them?
