Not Everything is about Lindsay Lohan

With the technology jumping around in this era, it isn’t too hard to involve yourself in a consensually-produced video of fornication, is it? Without these technology around then although, Old Hollywood yet fusty had its share of destructive rampage of sex, drugs and crime scandals which LiLo herself will feel over-the-top.

Thanks to The World’s Greatest: Hollywood Scandals by Robin Cross and John Marriott, I finally have myself another role model aka life peg: Bob Mitchum. (I still remember him as the frightening Harry Powell in The Night of the Hunter.) A close second would be Alma Rubens who managed to stitch 40 morphine in her dresses, got caught and eluded the authorities by saying she’s been “framed.” Classy.

Hi, I'm Barry Viloria, 21 and not a blogger. I occasionally bitch about what's hot, what's not, what's life-threatening and what's Blake Lively wearing but I refuse to be called a "blogger." That's it.

  1. napaisip ako sa mga possible greatest scandal naman sa Pinas dahil sa post mo. Palagay ko madami din.

  2. I really don’t like watching old films. There is something inside me that cannot stand the black and white-ness of old films and the way they construct sentences.

    Hi BarryCus! 😀

  3. Mitchum is the man! Can’t wait for the Night of the Hunter Criterion Bluray.

  4. Cool post! Thanks for checking out my blog 🙂

  5. You can’t forget Mitchum as Max Cady in Cape Fear, his best role to date. Of course, I guess it’s safe now to say that it was his best role ever. I noticed that you stopped by my site and asked me what age I thought would be best for marriage. First let me state that to really attempt to answer that question would require me to speak far outside of my breadth of knowledge. However, I will do my best to answer in a sort of roundabout way, and the answer is twofold. (1) It depends on the individual. (2) This may be the wrong question to be asking. I married at twenty-three and, looking back, would consider it to be a wise choice and an easy transition. I have many friends who have waited until they were well into their thirties to get married and most of them also say that the transition was fairly simple, and they too are pleased with their marriages. That being said, I don’t think that the particular age of the individuals played a role in the success or happiness of any of those marriages; Instead, the contributing factors were our willingness to choose a good partner, rather than acting on sexual instinct, and also our individual understanding of the word commitment. Here is what I would say, the the proper question you should be asking is who should you marry, rather than when should you marry. I don’t know anyone who looks back and says that they married at the wrong age, unless of course they are trying to use age to excuse another mistake that was simply due to a poor choice which would have been made regardless of age. But I do know people who have said that they married the wrong person and, in those cases, life for them was hell. Again, choose wisely my friend. In Proverbs 12:4, the Bible says that an excellent wife is like a crown to her husband, and a shameful one is compared to rotten bones.
