Eartha Kitt Is Just A Badass

bapgeek:

In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”

During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:

The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.

Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career.

Don’t Worry, Whedonites, a DR. HORRIBLE Sequel Will Happen

“Remember back in 2008 when the brothers Whedon (Joss, Jed, and Zack) gathered up a group of their famous friends and created Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog? It was a magical time, uniting Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day, and Nathan Fillion in supervillainry and song. And after the popularity of the series began to increase, fans begged for more, subsequently proving — even in a time when there was no such thing as “success” in a webseries world — that there could be a market for something professionally done in the digital landscape. Soon thereafter, Whedon confirmed there would be a sequel.” –   @ http://www.nerdist.com
