Richtig vorsorgen mit eigenheim & co

Sending condolences to Mark Donen who lost his father the great golden era Hollywood director Stanley Donen. Mark is just a little bit younger then Ms. Davis, and functioned on the periphery of the punk scene back in the early 1980s.

Mark’s mother was an English aristocrat who before marrying Stanley Donen was hitched to an Earl which made her a Countess.

Stanley Donen first came to Hollywood through his connection with his older lover and mentor the dance legend Gene Kelly, Like a lot of men of his era Stanley had some sugar in his tank and though mostly straight he did bump pussy with Van Johnson, Tom Drake, Ray McDonald, Richard Quine, Cary Grant, Michael Kidd and Bob Fosse just to name a couple of hundreds of bedchamber partners. He also was married to several women including Jeanne Coyne who was wed to Gene Kelly after divorcing Donen. His producer son Joshua Donen is the child from Donen’s marriage to actress Marion Marshall. Donen also had a short fling with Elizabeth Taylor when she starred in his film Love is Better then Ever. At the time of his death Donen had been the companion of femme top and talented director in her own right Elaine May.

The Vaginal Davis doll’s fav Donen films: Royal Wedding, Give a Girl a Break, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Indiscreet, Funny Face, Charade, The Little Prince, Movie-Movie, Lucky Lady and Two for the Road.

The lovely Dr. Vaginal Davis experienced some mild winter weather in Geneva Switzerland teaching at Work Master HEAD. Some of the other well known guests teaching at the school are Canadian high tech artist Jon Rafman and Greek/Swiss choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis.

For those of you who wanted to know more about what Ms. Davis saw during the Berlinale this is for you:

So Pretty Directed by Jessie Jeffrey Dunn Rovinelli. Set in New York City this lovely meditative film based on a West German novel of the 1980s really delights with a point of view and cast which fully employs our dancing daughters in terms of modern youth quaking. Dunn Rovinelli is an extroidinary young talent I am keeping my eye on.

Kimi no tori wa utaeru / And Your Bird Can Sing Directed by Sho Miyake. Humpy alpha male director Miyake casts his cute skateboarding dopelganger in this Jules et Jim lyrical stomp.

Variety directed by Bette Gordon
The restored feminist thriller features the involvement of a lot of New York royals like Kathy Acker, Cookie Meuhler, Luiz Guzman, CoCo Fusco, John Lurie, Christine Vashon, Nan Goldin, Will Patton, and Tom DiCillo. Geniustrata

Jessica Forever Directed by Caroline Poggi and Jonathan Vinel. Jessica is my kind of gal. She is queen bee to a bevy of young muscle studs in a spotty dystopian bell jar. There is not much going on here, but the beauty of the boys in question, and I guess if its enough for Jessica its should be enough for us.

A Rosa Azul De Novalis Directed by Gustavo Vinagre and Rodrigo Carneiro
All films should begin and end in poetic closeup of asshole with karbunckle.

Maso et Miso vont en bateau/SCUM Manifesto Delphine et Carole, Insoumuses/ Sois belle et tais-toi
Its Delphine Seyrig all the time! Boy do we need her now. With all these films you can rejoice in her splendour, verve and activist spirit. With Carole Roussopoulos, Ioana Wieder, Nadja Ringart, Center Audiovisuel Simone de Beauvoir, Jane Fonda, Jill Clayburgh, Louise Fletcher, Shirley MacClaine, Ellen Burstyn, Patti D’Arbanville, Candy Clark, Cindy Williams, Jenny Aguter, Marie Schneider, Juliet Berto, Marie Dubois, Millie Perkins, Luce Guilbeault, Barbara Steele, Susan Tyrrell, Viva, Rita Renoir, and Anne Wiazemsky.

Forum Expanded Programs 3-12
Brazil’s hideous swing to the right courtesy of that tired Bolsonaro means we need more films like Tamar Guimarães The Rehearsal. Was delighted to see the lovely CoCo Fusco’s Vivir en junio conla lengua afuera/ To Live in June with Your Tongue Hanging Out, Muhammed Salah’s hilarious Un An-Aired Interview/Liqa’lm yadhae, Jeremy Leatinu’u’s From the Back of the Canoe to the Front of the Canoe, Susana de Sousa Dias’ Fordlandia Malaise, the Karrabing Film Collective’s The Mermaids, or Aiden in Wonderland and the extroidinary SHAYNE by Stephan Geene of bbooks kollektiv featuring Ricky Shane and his lookalike sons.  Extra kudos for the fetching sound design of Manuela Schanina.

Of course it wouldn’t be the Berlinale without Think Film Congress No. 7 which this year featured the most gorgeous of gorgeous in the divine form of Lynhan Balatbat of SAAVY Contemporary who is a radiant breath of fresh intoxicating airolene.  Seen in the audience at the silent green kupahalle: Daniel Immerwahr whose new tome How to Hide an Empire-A History of the Greater United States is now the most talked about book of the winter season, Jonas Dassler the 23 year boy toy star of the film The Golden Glove, actor Tom Sturridge and Scotish singer George Ezra.
