As depicted in the article link above(just click onto it for the news),Jake “The Snake” Roberts is recovering very well from his recent double pneumonia illness that caused him to get hospitalized during a Las Vegas flight(that casted him in a Vegas hospital),and will be out from there to further recover in the home of fellow wrestler Sinn Bodhi(WWE’s Kizarny),who has everyone updated on the latest news of Jake’s recovery back to full health. Glad to hear that The Snake Man is alive and well and hasn’t fallen like many of the other wrestlers of the 80s and 90s.
But unfortunately,we’ve lost Joan Rivers,who was hospitalized during the same week as Jake,but she fell into both unconsciousness and a coma during a vocal chords operation in a New York hospital. Joan was a pioneering innovator in establishing women doing both stand up comedy and risqué controversial comedy,as well as becoming one of the first female talk show hosts on television(even if her shows didn’t last long). She also had her only directorial film with 1978’s pregnant man comedy RABBIT TEST(which was savagely trashed by the film critics,but then again:what do those peabrains know ?) and one of the very few celebrities that was openly honest about the current satte of modern celebrities of the last 25-28 years,many whom she openly hated that she wasn’t afraid to call out on their rudeness,obnoxious public behavior,and overexposure in the media,a trend that she continued onward with on her E! Channel FASHION POLICE show in reviewing(and verbally barbequing) Tinseltown’s most badly dressed(and underdressed) celebrities(whether they were new or old). You’ve got to fully respect someone like Joan for that factor.
And before I go: Two Big Middle Fingers(and a very loud “Fuck You !!!!”)to the Ain’t It Cool site for allowing that clueless dumbass Quint to mercilessly trash both Sybil Danning and BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS(which helped THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK proudly carry the torch for sci-fi cinema in the early 80s,and got as much enormous fandom love for it as EMPIRE),saying that both are terrible,for terrible fully more describe what Ain’t It Cool has douched up the fandom culture in the last 15-17 years with their equally douchy “geek”/”hipster” culture that has really dumbed down the fandom scene in the last 13 years,for I got an awful lot respect for the likes of Dread Central,Fangoria,Dark Horizons,and even Bloody Disgusting,since they all get it and Ain’t It Uncool doesn’t. I feel sorry for the very cool state of Texas(I love the food,the Alamo Drafthouse theaters,and the people,but hate the ultra conservative politics) to being home to these genre scenester embracing hipsters.
