Lu Galasso – This Week in Pop Culture

farrahfawcettposterWell, I’m sure this comes at no surprise today but for those of you who don’t know, the lovely Farrah Fawcett lost her cancer battle yesterday. Then, only a few hours later the news came that Michael Jackson had been discovered without a pulse and the paramedics were unable to revive him, pronoucing him dead at 2:26 pm on Thursday, June 25th 2009. As sad and devestating as it was to lose one of the original Charlie’s Angels, the world was expecting Farrah to breathe her last breath sometime yesterday after she was given her last rights. When she died she was surrounded by her boyfriend and one of her closest friends and as well as her longtime friend and hair stylist. Unfortunately, her son was unable to be present at her deathbed as he has been in jail throughout her cancerous battle. Luckily for him he was granted permission to attend her funeral and he is even allowed to wear something other than his inmate clothing.

Then we have the King of Pop. Although he had a rough few years after the incident with him hanging his son over a balcony, and his career was in shambles after he was accused of having sexual relations with a young teenage boy, it is undeniable that he will forever go down in history as one of the greatest pop artists of all time. I may not have grown up with the Jackson 5 and seen him rise to fame, but his songs certaintly were a  part of my childhood. I mean come on, who didn’t try to moonwalk? In grade 8 gym class we even had to make a dance to thriller. Oh and you CANNOT forget about the free willy theme song. I used to watch the movie just for that song. Ask anyone and they likely know at least one song my Michael Jackson.

It’s strange thinking that he’s gone. It’s a very surreal feeling. He was just someone who was always around, since I was born. Someone who you never reaRIP MJlize could be gone, just like that. This was probably how people felt when John Lennon got shot or when Princess Diana got into that fatal car crash. Just, baffeled. It’s a strange kind of sorry. You don’t cry, but you mourn in some other way. You play his music constantly, you read about his life, you crack insulting jokes to make light of the situation. The rumour is that Jackson had a heart attack, but the autopsy is still confirming.

Rest In Peace you two. Jackson, you better put on a great concert in heaven…or wherever you are. Maybe you could get together with the King of rock n roll and do a duet.

Lu Galasso in Collaboration with Tim Burton

Just kidding. I wish I were able to work with Tim Burton, especially on one his most recent projects where he gets to work with Johnny Depp, yet again. This time they are working on one of my most favourite childhood films, Alice in Wonderland. Knowing Tim Burton, this is going to get CRAZY. Now I have been hearing about this film for awhile, but there has never been any solid information, until NOW. That’s right, thansk for buzznet.com I was finally able to stumble across an article that even had pictures. The film is going to be released March 5 2010, and I am already counting the days. Anne Hathaway stars as the White Queen while Helena Bonham Carter stars as the Queen of Hearts. Johnny Depp has been cast as the Mad Hatter, I expect good things. I don’t know if any of you watch “In Treatment” but the girl Sophie, from season one, has been cast as Alice.
Anyhoo, here is the article. There is even another link attached with more info from USA Today. Enjoy!

Lu Galasso has Found Herself A Topic

So as I’m sitting here, I’m thinking of interesting things to talk to you guys about. To get people engaged. And I think I’ve finally got it. I am going to talk about POP CULTURE. we all love pop culture, whether we realize it or not. Pop culture is something we all indulge in. Whether it be that new episode of the hills or the new Jonas Brother’s cd that has just been released. It is everything from music, to television, to movie stars, to books. I got this idea because I recently finished the book written by Chuck Klosterman entitled Sex, Drugs and Coco Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto. It is essentially a variety of essays he has written on popular culture. I highly recommend it. If there is a certain book or film or television show or song you would like me to discuss PLEASE, i encourage you to comment and/or add me on facebook (lu galasso) or twitter (lu_galasso).
I am going to sign off for now but when I get a good tid bit of information I am going to come back and update you guys.

xo
gossip girl.

just kidding.

Summertime… and the Living’s Easy

So in the spirit of summertime my mom sent me an email with some really cool pictures of waves. It sounds lame, but seriously, they’re kinda cool. They are photographed by a guy named Clark Little. Let me know what you think.
