Gayest show ever, for the sixties. It was hilarious! The only women in it were a few villains.

1. something that provides sophisticated, knowing amusement, as by virtue of its being artlessly mannered or stylized, self-consciously artificial and extravagant, or teasingly ingenuous and sentimental.

2. a person who adopts a teasing, theatrical manner, esp. for the amusement of others.


"Oh look at her (gay male), she's so campy!" laugh

I now recall running into some of these folks at Boy Scout, YMCA, and desert fossil "camp"...

back then the Indians were native Americans instead of the incipient Village People.

Still straight even after many summers of "Camp"

John G. Avildsen, Oscar-Winning Director of 'Rocky,' Dies at 81

Quote:
John G. Avildsen, who won an Academy Award for directing Rocky and helmed the first three original Karate Kid movies, has died. He was 81.

Avildsen died of pancreatic cancer at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, his son, Anthony, told the Los Angeles Times.

Avildsen also directed Susan Sarandon and Peter Boyle in the ultimately violent drama Joe (1970); guided Jack Lemmon to the Academy Award for best actor in Save the Tiger (1973) in a story about a businessman having a mid-life crisis; and kept things together on the set of The Formula (1980), which starred the temperamental actors George C. Scott and Marlon Brando.

Helmut Kohl died on June 16th, aged 87. The first German politician who was born late enough to miss the Second World War, he lead Germany through the reunification and turned two weak countries into the economic powerhouse that is modern Germany.

It is a little known fact that Helmut Kohl's father made his fortune on the invention of an efficient cooking fuel that could be used by German soldiers in WWI for heating up their "Iron Rations" in the field, with their protective headgear serving as the stove. He was so obsessed with his success that he named his son after his invention...

I have been profoundly affected by two deaths reported this week. Otto Warmbier, 22, (Otto Warmbier Suffered 'Extensive Loss Of Brain Tissue,' No Sign Of Botulism.), and Nabra Hassanen, 17 (Death of Muslim girl not believed to be hate crime). Unlike most celebrities reported here, these were unknown individuals (except to their families and circles of friends), in the early flower of their lives, whose lives were brutally and senselessly brought to an end.
