Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

Miss Luckmoore: A provocation.
For what else must one wear?

A happy 55th birthday to the great Marianne Jean-Baptiste today! I know she's given dozens of excellent performances over the years -- Mike Leigh's Secrets and Lies hive holla! -- but it behooves my interests to always come back to this Peter Strickland gem, every single time, my apologies to the remaining thirty years of her career. Did y'all catch the trailer for Strickland's new movie Flux Gourmet yesterday? I wish he was working with Baptiste again, I liked how she fit into his weird world, but as long as my girl Fatma Mohamed's around I will survive.

I really love Secrets and Lies. “You slag!”, always comes to mind and makes me chuckle. I don’t even know what a slag is, but It doesn’t sound good.

I think it means whore or something along that line.
