I saw Madeleine Peyroux perform on Saturday. I’d like to write all about it (it was spectacular), but I don’t feel very well.
So, I went poking around the internet, ending up on Wikipedia. Says here one of Peyroux’s influences was Charlie Chaplin.
Charlie Chaplin?! I thought he was a silent film actor.
Among MANY things, he wrote Smile. Did you know that? Lots of people covered it, but I hear Nat King Cole sing it in my head.
Chaplin had four wives — all pretty much jail bait actresses — and he had eight children with the last one alone! — She was Oona O’Neill, daughter of Eugene O’Neill. Her granddaughter is Oona Chaplin — a Spanish actress who did some episodes of Game of Thrones, among others, I see. I don’t know first hand, because I’ve never watched Game of Thrones. Don’t judge. In fact, I was just watching Odd Mom Out and Vanessa and Jill (have come to hate that name — the whore’s name is Jill) have a spat over how Jill begs Vanessa to watch it, but how Vanessa resists, until she doesn’t, and emerges from her binge a wreck. She’s supposed to be a doctor on that series. Do doctors have blocks of time that extensive?
I could ask my son, the med student, who is calling tonight to catch up, but
Where was I?
As I said, I don’t feel well, and I just spent an exhausting day wandering around the interwebs.
