Hello all you fellow Betteheads!

So please come back, and encourage all your Bettehead friends to do the same:

Once again I’m really really sorry!

Much Love

RIP Aaron Russo: 2/14/1943 – 8/24/2007 (Thanks Wendy)

It’s time to say “When.”
Aaron Russo – 2/14/1943 – 8/24/2007
Aug 25, 2007

Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, producer Aaron Russo began promoting rock and roll shows at local theaters while still a high school student. He then worked for his family’s undergarment business, where in 1963, he designed the first ladies bikini under wear. Five years later the twenty four year old entrepreneur opened his own nightclub in Chicago called the Kinetic Playground which became a driving force in the music business, where Aaron helped create the careers of many legendary performers, such as Led Zeppelin. Aaron was responsible for bringing them to America for the first time. He also promoted some of the 60’s most successful rock acts, including The Who, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. Read More

Trees Grow, Why Don’t You??? (Inspired by Wendy)

Mister D: I’m not going to post anything more about this except for the below. I found it on MySpace from a bulletin post Wendy made. It’s a fair assessment of the problem.

The ugliness about all this Midler press is coming from on-line bloggers who are pretty right wing and they are constantly looking for anything that might make all of Hollywood sound like hypocrites (double click on the word hypocrites and you’ll see that Ms. Midler does not fit the definition…the word is majorly misused)…a major talking point of the right wing. It keeps them from thinking about their own and their party’s weaknesses. In fact, I would venture to say, it just keeps them from thinking period. Read More

Bette Midler: Putting The Show Together…

Mister D: This was reported a while back, but this is more of the aftermath….

Luxe Life with Robin Leach

Okay, Okay: The Trees Story!

Mister D: I have gotten so much email about this story…I guess people just thought it passed me by, but it didn’t. The way the news is treating it, you’d think Bette was cutting down trees left and right that were alive and talking…just losing it as if possessed like some serial tree killer. I can just envisualize the trees screaming and blowing pollen back her way.

Her reasonings were simple…it was her property…and she paid millions to preserve this property for Hawaii…never intending to build a home on it or the like. However, the press just loves to run a negative story when good people seem to falter in their eyes. I have to admit, most were fair and objective that I read, but some had some really titillating and mean headlines I presume to get people’s attention. Many of those came from bloggers, however, to make themselves seem like real provacotive journalists. Read More
