Finally: Cate Blanchett & Director Liv Ullman Do Justice To Blanche DuBois in "Streetcar Named Desire"

ArtTracker| NYTimes critic Ben Brantley’s review of Cate Blanchett playing Blanche DuBois in Liv Ullmann’s “heart-stopping” production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” leaves me breathless just reading it. Where’s my damn cell phone to order tickets!

Will it be extended beyond the Dec. 20th date at BAM? Stop toying with us this way!

Count me among the sizeable population of people who always felt that Blanche DuBois, and not Stanley Kowalski, was the real lead in “Streetcar”.

Jesus Luz: Candidly Up Close and Personal

Updated: Jan 23, 2010

When Jesus Luz becomes the #2 story on Anne of Carversville, I know something is going on. This is the article you’re looking for on Dlisted.

If it’s really Jesus Luz’s cock — and who has verified that fact — I say ‘God bless him.’ I assure you that porn shots aside, the size of a man’s penis has nothing to do with his sexual prowess.

As for Madonna, I saw her last night live at ‘Hope for Haiti Now’ and she looked fantastic. It’s criminal that we’ve redefined reality so that any evidence of ‘reality’ on a woman’s face discredits her. I’ll be so happy when Madonna haters find something worthwhile to do with their lives besides looking for evidence of facial hair on Madonna. Perhaps taking a good look at their own faces in the mirror is a good first step — especially into their eyes.

Meanwhile, Madonna and Jesus are hot, hot, hot. Anne

Steven Klein “Blame It on Rio” W MagazineMadonna lovers first met 22-yer-old Brazilian guy Jesus Luz in the flesh last winter, when hegot naked with her in Steven Klein’s now infamous W Magazine photo shoot. Jesus Luz was one of three male models paid $100 each for the two-day shoot with Madonna.

“The first picture session with Madonna resulted in his coming home really happy,” said his mother Cristiane Regina da Silva in an interview with a Brazilian magazine. “He even opened a bottle of champagne.” via “How Madonna Found Her Jesus”.

They’ve been inseparable ever since, and we’ve become voyeurs into a hot and steamy love affair that defies several convictions about older women and younger men.

Steven Klein “Blame It on Rio” W Magazine

In the case of Madonna and Luz, the 30-year age difference tests the boundaries of “are you serious?” Almost a year later, the answer seems to be “yes” they are very serious. For all the haters that describe the couple’s adventure in harsh and sleasy boytoy terms, this weekend’s NYTimes interview and story about Jesus Luz suggests that there’s real intimacy under Madonna’s Smart Sensuality down duvet.

Bishops Search for Stupak Sponsor in Senate

Roman Catholic bishops are still searching for a senator willing to sponsor the equivalent of the House of Representatives Stupak amendment in the Senate. Politico reports that among the senators under intense pressure by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ pro-life advocacy is Democratic senator from Pa, Richard Doerfinger, a Catholic and high-profile opponent of abortion rights.

Cecile Richards, President of Planned ParenthoodPolitico suggests that Casey is not comfortable with the Stupak amendment as it stands. His move to find a less controversial amendment may raise new objections from the Catholic Church.

Saint Shakira Calls Libido the "Engine of the World"

I’m impossibly arrogant to suggest that Shakira’s announcement that libido is the engine of the world was intended to provide critical backup for my post this morning on feminism and morality.

Let’s just say that two Smart Sensuality women are on the same train track.

It’s true that Shakira’s blend of sexuality and philanthropy launched my own re-entry into activism this summer. Shakira, the burqa debate and Lubna Hussein’s defiant standup to the morality police in Sudan cleared out the cobwebs in my head.

Euan Ferguson interviews Shakira for The Observer, getting wise to the fact that there’s a serious brainiac with curves in the room, a woman who inspires you to think about “far deeper things than one might expect, especially if one was coming to Shakira on the music and looks alone.”

What a bloody patroning remark.

The Death of American Feminism And Religious Orthodoxy

Writing for Slate, Katha Pollitt has decisively answered profound questions about feminism in America, discussing Gail Collins’ new book When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present

In an unconscious nod to Lubna Hussein, and our Smarty Pants crowd, Pollitt’s correct in saying that, second wave feminism was about symbolically about the right to wear pants.

There is no more threatening gesture to the patriarchal, orthodox, conservative religious male mind than a woman wearing pants.

Unlike Pollitt who finds garter belts repressive, I typically wear skirts and believe in the redemptive power of fine lingerie and expressed female sensuality. But I will march in the streets all over again — and I believe it’s time — for the rights of women to wear pants worldwide.

RAF Sends First Female Helicopter Crew Against Taliban

Updated on Sun, November 22, 2009 by Registered CommenterAnne

From left: Stephanie Cole, Michelle Goodman, Joanna Watkinson and Wendy Donald at their US training baseLike the Brits, American women soldiers are deployed as medevac helicopter pilots in Afghanistan. Reading this DefenseLink commentary on female soldiers in Army Aviation, I have no sense of how many women in Afghanistan are helicopter pilots.

My heart swelled, though, seeing this photo and headline out of the London Times: First female helicopter crew takes on Taliban

This is the first RAF all-woman combat helicopter flying together, four women taking troops and supplies to the frontline against the Taliban in Helmand. They will also airlift casualties to the hospital at Camp Bastion.

The Merlin crew includes Flight-Lieutenant Michelle Goodman, 32, from Bristol, the first woman to win the Distinguished Flying Cross. She and her co-pilot, Flight-Lieutenant Joanna Watkinson, 28, from Reading, have been preparing in California for the difficulties of flying in Afghanistan. The hot air, dust and high altitude pose particular problems for helicopters.

Loadmasters Sergeant Stephanie Cole, 24, from Wiltshire, and Sergeant Wendy Donald, 31, from Liverpool, have also been training at the US airbase at El Centro.

The RAF says that it’s coincidence that the women are flying together.

As an American woman who detests war but knows also that the Taliban are anything but good guys, I say: “Ladies, I am so proud of you.”
