Noir Saturday: The Woman on the Beach

MV5BOTE3OTM3YTctNzVkMy00MWEzLTk3MWMtZjM2MTE2YzBjY2FjXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyODcwODg0OQ@@._V1_

Here’s tonight’s noir, The Woman on the Beach with gorgeous Joan Bennett!

Coast Guard officer Scott (Robert Ryan) loves his fiancée, Eve (Nan Leslie), but he can’t fight his attraction to the alluring Peggy (Joan Bennett), a lonely beauty he meets on the beach. But Peggy is trapped in a loveless marriage to Tod (Charles Bickford), a former painter whose career was cut short by blindness. Scott and Peggy become romantically involved, yet they can’t help but feel that Tod knows more than he’s letting on — and his blindness may just be a ruse he uses to spy on Peggy.

Check it out tonight on TCM @ 11PM CST or Sunday morning  @ 9AM CST. Have a great night.

Every Day You Play

Every day you play with the light of the universe.
Subtle visitor, you arrive in the flower and the water.
You are more than this white head that I hold tightly
as a cluster of fruit, every day, between my hands.

You are like nobody since I love you.
Let me spread you out among yellow garlands.
Who writes your name in letters of smoke among the stars of the south?
Oh let me remember you as you were before you existed.

Suddenly the wind howls and bangs at my shut window.
The sky is a net crammed with shadowy fish.
Here all the winds let go sooner or later, all of them.
The rain takes off her clothes.
The birds go by, fleeing.
The wind. The wind.
I can contend only against the power of men.
The storm whirls dark leaves
and turns loose all the boats that were moored last night to the sky.

You are here. Oh, you do not run away.
You will answer me to the last cry.
Cling to me as though you were frightened.
Even so, at one time a strange shadow ran through your eyes.

Now, now too, little one, you bring me honeysuckle,
and even your breasts smell of it.
While the sad wind goes slaughtering butterflies
I love you, and my happiness bites the plum of your mouth.
How you must have suffered getting accustomed to me,
my savage, solitary soul, my name that sends them all running.
So many times we have seen the morning star burn, kissing our eyes,
and over our heads the gray light unwind in turning fans.

My words rained over you, stroking you.
A long time I have loved the sunned mother-of-pearl of your body.
I go so far as to think that you own the universe.
I will bring you happy flowers from the mountains, bluebells,
dark hazels, and rustic baskets of kisses.
I want
to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.

Throwback Thursday: Mimi the Spaz in Dokdo

Yes, I was drunk.  It’s a very, very dangerous thing to be drunk and walking over slippery rocks where you can fall into the sea at any minute.  I hate to perpetuate stereotypes, but no, Black Barbie can’t swim!

Travel Tuesday: Luxor Temple

luxor_temple

Ah, here’s yet another impressive Egyptian human feat, or was it the aliens, Luxor Temple. Not sure how I feel about the light show. Anyway, Luxor Temple is located on the east bank of the River Nile in the ancient city of Thebes and was founded in 1400 BC during the New Kingdom. The temple was dedicated to the three Egyptian gods Amun, Mut, and Chons. The temple was the center of the festival of Opet, Thebes’ most important festival. During the annual festival, the statues of the three Gods were escorted from the temple of Amun in Karnak to the temple of Luxor along the avenue of sphinxes that connect the 2 temples. Today Luxor is the premier travel destination in Upper Egypt and many Nile cruises start or end in the city.

Black Barbie Chronicles: This is Why I Don’t Learn More Korean

Cat-meme

I’m an idiot. I know that I am. Why else would I use the moniker Black Barbie? Anyhoo, Korea has its share of Barbies as well. I guess that’s why most of the time I felt at home and pissed off at the same time.  So, here’s yet another mini racist rant on why I really shouldn’t try to learn any more Korean. As usual, enjoy, comment, mock!

This is Why I Don’t Learn More Korean

Hey, Korea you sexy thing, it has been a minute since we’ve come to blows. Not quite sure why this has happened. Maybe it’s because I have become a punk bitch or I’m losing interest in you. I think the later is quite a possibility. Seriously Korea, you are starting to bore me. Even having people follow me, staring, and point at me is not about you. I am sorry to say Korea, no, that was not about you. I would love to say it is, but it’s not. You are not responsible for this round. However, cheer up; next time, it could be all about you. For now, it is all about my new building and me!

Yes, my school loves me. Not really; the lease for the old place was up, and a friend of a friend of a friend of the vice principal had a place for the school, and they took over the lease. Now, my Korean is far from perfect; however, from what I can understand and what Moon Yeoung is telling me the vice principal had a little something-something on the side.

What’s a little infidelity among people, eh? Well, it turns out the VP’s side piece was an 18-year-old former student who mysteriously had to “go away.” Get this; the kid was male. Now I like them young dumb and hung too, but this was too young even by my standards! Now people, enough gossip, on to my new place.

Not only is my new building much cleaner, bigger, and generally more magical than that shoebox hey had me living in, it has twice as many elevators. Considering my old place was a walkup, by twice as many elevators means, I have two elevators! Yeah me. This place is like a castle, without of course the moat, the many, many rooms, the rich wall coverings and the huge staff of servants. Like with great power comes great responsibility, so too with being in a building with two elevators. I am convinced that many a people do not understand the concept of how an elevator works.

Every other day or so as I am waiting for the elevator, some rando comes up beside me and pushes the exact same button several times. Perhaps they think that I haven’t bothered to push it yet, maybe they can’t see the light, or maybe, just maybe, they think I’m some idiot who can’t operate something as simple as an elevator. Then again, this is Korea, and since I don’t know them or related to them, I really don’t exist!

However, for this scenario, it is clear from the illuminated white light that Black Barbie has pushed the button to call for the elevator to come to her floor. It could also be true that for some reason people think that pushing the button like a maniac will magically make the elevator appear faster and we can all take it and get on with our lives! Even this is beyond the pale even for me.

When I was forced to witness this brand of stupidity in Texas Land, I struggled to get through the situation without bringing attention to the stupidity of the perpetrator’s actions. It’s only natural that my first response upon seeing it here in Korea Land is to come up with a list of bitchy backhanded compliment phrases on my way to work that I absolutely must get Moon Yeoung to translate into Korean for me. Unfortunately, by the time I get to work, I’ve talked myself out of learning Korean for the sake of being an ass. While at work, I like to pretend that I am a good person. No sense in letting all of Korea the type of bitch I can really be.
