Announcing the 2019 Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

This is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring has returned, and she’s brought her best friends with her: birds, buds, and every shade of green known to humankind. On her coattails rides another, albeit lesser, reason to be a little giddy…

The 2019 Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

Reel Infatuation 2019-Cary Grant

As usual, I am terribly excited to read everyone’s entries. The diversity, passion, and intelligent commentary participants bring to this blogathon is truly extraordinary. The #charactercrush phenomenon is universal AND so much fun, y’all. 

As for my 2019 choice? Behold…

The Ballad of Thelma and the Sleaze

Thelma and the Sleaze are coming for you
Gunning down the highway
With guitars in their eyes, like stars

Bigger than life
Full of that '70s swagger
B-movie queens on the rise

Heading to your town
Gonna take it over
They'll charm your women and drink your booze

Yeah, these chicks do it up right
Night after night on the stage
Leaving nothing behind but your dreams

They won't stop
Even when there's nothing left to give
Gonna conquer the world while you weep

Bigger than life
Full of that '70s swagger
B-movie queens on the rise

Thelma and the Sleaze are coming for you
Gunning down the highway
With guitars in their eyes, like stars
