The Daily Word in burning Marilyn's dresses, the last Southern Democrat and Crispin Hellion Glover

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Thu Dec 4 2014 12:30 PM ]

An 80-year-old New Mexican man plans to have his collection of Marilyn Monroe's clothing burned in Zozobra after his death. It's, like, in his will. And it seems a fitting tribute to the life of an actress whose flame burned intensely and all too briefly.

US headline OTD? DC bans pot testing of job applicants via WaPo; okay, okay, it's not exactly catchy, but I sure hope it's catching.

Homelessness is heartbreaking.

The City has hired a local NAACP leader named Harold Bailey, but the choice remains controversial. According to a quoted source, Bailey has "sold his soul."

You know what Downtown needs? If you guessed "a temporary ice skating rink," bingo! This could only turn out well, no?

Oh and did I mention that Crispin Hellion Glover is coming? Rhetorical! In fact, he's probably already here. Scope our interview with the actor/author/auteur, "Begging the Question(s): Crispin Hellion Glover talks critical thought, propaganda and taboo." Visit with Glover on Friday and Saturday night at The Guild Cinema.

And Devin D. O'Leary schools us on Hollywood holidaze in this year's Alibi Holiday Film Guide.

Is Mary Landrieu the last Southern Democrat? The Atlantic weighs in.

Tim Walker's photographs of fairy queen Tilda Swinton are (like most anything Swinton-related) rad.

Our kids are dancing! They’re dancing and focusing and doing their chores! Hallelujah!

A former UPS employee is suing the company for allegedly firing her for being pregnant.

Science says alcohol gives us energy and we’ve probably been drinking it for millions of years! Cheers!

Coca-Cola will soon sell milk! And by the looks of their advertisements, that milk is going to be sexy! LOL. LOL. LOL.

This Pomeranian dressed like Elvis understands life better than any of us ever will.

Japan-based company makes realistic looking, creepy food jewelry. We want the spaghetti necklace, banana hair clip and chocolate chip cookie hair tie!

Save nudity and “pornography” for Coca-Cola milk products, Florida!
