Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Dig that crazy quilt-lookin' picture framed on the wall of Lucy & Desi...
I love Desi's desk lamp. It's like the mother ship coming in for a landing.
Desi: "No Lu-Cee we dit the choc-late maker zine last yaer. I say NO!!"Lucy: "BUT RICKEEYYY!!!! Ethel?!!"Ethel: "I'm with Rick. It's been done AND forget crushing grapes."Lucy: "Fred?!!!Fred: *sound of crickets*Desi: "OH-Kay mov'in on.."Read somewhere-but can't remember where Desi told Sinatra "Hey Frank-Fvck You!" to his face in some nightclub (Havana?).And Chairman of the Board didn't mess with him.No doubt in my mind Desi had a pair of brass ones -and his mob was bigger than Frank's mob.Always liked him and the way he carried himself.
Desi had juice, no doubt about it (although Jimmy the Weasel told how Desi almost got bumped off because of his portrayal of Capone, Nitti, et al, in "The Untouchables"). But he looks majorly zonked, as he loved the booze, the babes, and he probably needed another Bennie just to get through this meeting.
These two had a troublesome, butendearing marriage for eleven yearsuntil they got together for this show so they could stay together --and all their hard work to make oneof the best -- if not -- the bestsituation comedies on televisionswallowed them up and spit themout. So now we have it -- as we'vehad for almost sixty years -- andthey didn't get it. They couldn'tstay together because of the fameand the stress and the pressuretook it. But when you see it,you definately see their love.That shines on and on and on..
