This is very interesting!!!!

Hi everyone!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!(I know I did!)

I have about three things to point out to you though:(And #3 is the best!)

1. First of all, what is going on with the official GR website??? Nothing has been updated since 12-18-08 about the paperdoll book. I mean, they do have the showtimes updated, but what about everything else!? That website has become so boring now, and for it being "official", why aren't there any "super rare" photos??? They're all photos from GR's book practically.....But you know whatever................

2. Second of all, I've decided to join the club on Hat Check Girl. Seriously that film MUST BE SHOWN!!! I can't believe that TCM hasn't shown it to the die hard fans of GR. So I went ahead and put a comment on the film begging them to play it. Hopefully they will show it someday for us.

3. And last but not least, something very interesting. Today I was searching on google some GR stuff, and came across this:http://sps.k12.mo.us/mann/Photo%20Gallery/Famous%20Missourians/Famous_Missourians.htm.

I think it's very interesting. In Missouri, some school had fourth graders do a awesome project. It was where the kids had to research famous Missourians, and design a poster with pics and saying 3 reasons why they should be voted in The Hall of Fame. And you know what? One girl had chosen.....GINGER ROGERS. When you check out the page, it's the last group under Mrs. Grant's fourth grade class on the left. The girl has blonde hair all curled like GR with a pic of the poster and some items, and movie boxes. When I saw this, I was thinking how lucky they were! I wish the schools could do something like that here.................

Sorry for not being around lately!!! Although I do have something to share with you all!

Last night I was really bored and didn't know what to do. Then I felt like drawing something. I went downstairs to the computer and drew a picture of Ginger Rogers. I am a really good at drawing, and so I try to draw real people. Before it used to be drawing cartoon people, but now I want to draw real people. Ever since I went into art class this year, I know how to draw real things, because before I never wanted to try it, but I like drawing like that now!!!

So once when I was done, I was like, OMG!!!! It was the best Ginger Rogers drawing I've ever done!!! It looked almost exactly like her!!! I was so excited!!! After that I showed everyone my picture. Then I posted it on Facebook and Myspace. I was really happy, and I finally actually did teeth good!!!

My drawing:

I think they look almost identical. What do you think???

My Ginger Rogers Website

I have made this website five months ago. Some people have seen it and said it's really good. I'm glad!!! I usually update the section where it has the next showings on TCM. I'll be updating that section at the end of October. Here's the link :http://herolink7.tripod.com/
To Jwalker: You will find some "killer" pictures on my website.

Oh on my theatre project we got into groups and started working on my script. Tonight though, me and my mom went to Hobby Lobby. Looked around and then got the fabric for my cape,(part of theatre project)and we went to the section that had different signs. I was talking to my mom and all of a sudden I glanced and saw "Remember, Ginger Rogers" then I looked at it and found the saying "Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in High heels." I was shocked finding that there, so I got my mom to buy it. Somehow I need to find a space to put on my wall.... I have a lot of classic movie stars on my bedroom walls. If only I could find a place...............

Theatre Project

I haven't been on here that much lately because of school. It's been really busy the past few weeks. Especially last week since it was the end of the first six weeks. Although I do have something to share with you. In theatre yesterday we started a project called Original Character. First we must create our character to act out. Then we have to start Improvisations in front of the class, and after that make capes to show about our character. The final thing is get in a group and make a short scene. It is going to be FUN!!! But the main thing I would like telling you about is the character. My character is sort of based on Ginger Rogers!!! : D

Instead of Ginger, my character's name is Dolly. I got the name from Ginger's play Hello Dolly!, and I also have my character have almost the same things like Ginger. I think it's a good idea!!

Although I do wish my theatre teacher could create a project where we can act like someone famous that we like. Then I could act like Rockstar!!! YAY!!!

*Rockstar is Ginger Rogers. Someone on the TCM reviews called her a rockstar. I believe it too!!!

Today at school

Today at school I wore my Fred and Ginger things. My "Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did except backwards and in high heels" T-shirt, one of my Fred and Ginger buttons, and of course F and G earrings. I wanted to wear these today, and I got TONS of comments at school.

In art, my table noticed the earrings and said they were cute with the faces. Then in science I had a girl ask me, "Who's Fred and Ginger?". I showed her that my shirt matched the people on the earrings and button, and then her friend noticed them and liked them a lot.The thing is, once when my science teacher came in, she yelled out "Hey Mrs. Drom! Look at her earrings!" Mrs. Drom then looked and said, "Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers!". After that class, my english teacher said my earrings looked very cute, and then my U.S. History teacher absolutely LOVED them! After class I came over to her and showed her my F and G stuff. She was sooooo interested in them that she even asked me where I got all of it at! (My U.S. History teacher is such a classic movie fan, it's not even funny!!!!!)

Then my last class which is theatre I got a few comments on my shirt, earrings, and button. But, it's just funny how all the kids don't even have a clue on who Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are. They say "Oh that looks so cute!", but don't know who they really are. And then all my teachers know who F and G are. Just very interesting today at school!

I know this may be off topic, but this is so cool!!!
I found this on yahoo news. Someone was sharing some pictures with Illusions.
I didn't save the pics from the article, so I went to Flickr.com which is where they were, and just found the ones that were in the article. I'll just share these with you too!!! : D

If you stare at the middle closely, the red rings will look like they're rotating.
Stare in the middle, and the rest of the picture looks like it's moving.
Stare in the center, and the whole picture will start flickering.
This one is the best. Just stare at the picture, and the leaves will look like they're all moving in a wave!!! : D

My love for the Classics

Before I ever saw the classic films, I liked tons of people from today, the music, etc. When my mom showed me Breakfast at Tiffany's, I thought it was awesome! That was when my love for classics began. I started looking into it more and more. I soon started watching Audrey Hepburn's films, and I loved them so much. I also saw The Birds and it was such a fantastic, suspenseful film! Alfred Hitchcock's films let me see other actors of that time. Back then, I never heard of Cary Grant, James Stewart, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly, Joseph Cotten, Teresa Wright, and many more that were in his films. I loved them all. I started then watching movies of those actors, which also led me know about other ones, like Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Rita Hayworth, Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, William Powell, Sophia Loren, Natalie Wood. Then I started listening to old music, like big bands, rock and roll, mostly the music they had back in those days. I started getting away from what I used to like, and this was becoming my new hobby. Then I got into Fred and Ginger, which are wonderful dancers!!! And after that I became a Ginger Rogers fan. Now I appreciate the old days and their films. Personally, I think today's stars are lame. No class, and it's not the same anymore. At least back then they really knew how to "act" unlike today. I say "Hooray for Classic Hollywood!!!" : )

Welcome to my blog! I have joined blogspot so I can share things about Ginger Rogers, or maybe other Classic Hollywood things. Besides Ginger Rogers, I love so many other people. But how I became a huge fan was all because of my mom. We were watching So You Think You Can Dance. And saw a couple dancing to swing music. My mom said to me that they reminded her of Fred and Ginger. Of course then I didn't know who any of them were, so I asked her. My mom told me Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were one of the greatest dancers back in the 30's. Then I questioned her if they made any films together. Luckily, my mom had some DVDs of their movies, and she gave them to me. Later that night, I decided to watch one of the films. The very first one I saw was Swing Time. Once I saw Ginger make her entrance, I became a huge fan. When they danced their first dance in the film,(Which is Pick Yourself Up) I saw Fred and Ginger dance for the first time. Throughout the whole movie, I was agape at Ginger's dresses. They were very pretty and cute. Then I stayed up longer and watched Shall We Dance. I thought that was a magnificent film as well. But I just loved her dresses in that film. After watching Top Hat and Follow the Fleet. I wanted to know more about this actress. Although then I didn't know what Ginger's name was, so I had to look at a DVD box. As I read about her, I became interested in Ginger Rogers. After that, I finished watching all the Fred and Ginger films, and started watching films of Ginger. I figured out she wrote an autobiography, so I made my mom buy it. Her book was fantastic after I finished it. Ginger; My Story has become one of my favorite books. Ginger Rogers is THE BEST!!!
