New Things to Come on "Rants of a Diva"

Well, now that I’ve finally finished the Top 10 Songs of 2006, I will be taking a vacation from my blog (I will be at home with crappy dial-up and can’t be bothered to spend an hour trying to upload stuff). But when I come back, here are some fun new features that I will be starting and (hopefully) continuing into the future.

-Since film is a major passion of mine, expect more editions of “Rants about…” Coming soon will be my thoughts on Paul Haggis’ Crash and Clooney’s Good Night, and Good Luck.
-Rap Song Monday: Every Monday for a certain period of time I will be discussing one of my favorite rap/hip hop songs.
-A new series called “Underappreciated Performances” which includes my thoughts and feelings about some of my favorite performances that were just under the radar. First up should be Stephen Campbell Moore in Stephen Fry’s Bright Young Things.
-More devotion to “The Golden Girls” including some of my favorite lines, episodes and moments.
-MUCH more devotion toward Jake Gyllenhaal, Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Channing Tatum, Dame Judi Dench, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Greta Garbo.
-Now that Oscar season is over, I will be delving into Oscar history with Best Actor Cock Fights and Best Actress Bitch Fights. For this series, I will compare the nominees for Best Actor or Actress in a certain year and tell you who I think should have won, didn’t deserve to be nominated or should have been nominated.

Speaking of Judy Garland, There is an exciting and popular new group on Yahoo called THE JUDY GARLAND EXPERIENCE. The files section features dozens of ultra rare and never released audio recordings, and great photo's. The discussions are always lively and the membership is made up of the most eclectic bunch of Judy fans anywhere (they have regular and hardcore fans, Garland family members, historians, authors and producers of Garland projects, celebrities etc). It's pretty amazing. Please stop by this little Judyville and check it out, you may never want to leave!
