Puttin’ on the Ritz Carla July 29, 2015, 2:44 pm Smollops / The DollopIt’s the 1920’s, baby. Look at my ankles and my collarbone. LOOK AT THEM.Some 1920’s era snazziness for you while I gather together our ill-fated Radium Girls (and the ill-led Klan)…I like my man to have a good stiff felt. I’m bringing cloches and turbans back. One-woman fashion army. Who’s with me?But I don’t WANT to work for the Radium Corporation.https://youtu.be/w1FLZPFI3jcOther what-the-tarnation is she wearing entries:30: The Taxidermist (to quote our friend Margaret Cho, “She rocked the WHOLE bird!”)53: Battle of the Pants (don’t tell me women have legs I cannot handle it) Previous Postand we come back around, as we always seem to do, to Dr. Lilly and his chamberNext PostEpisode 99: Smollop: Radium Girls 0 Comments Carla July 29, 2015 at 2:57 pm 6 years ago ReplyI also learned, choosing a version of the song to embed, that the original Taco video (the version from my misspent youth) has blackface in it.
