    I've seen her dancing act a bunch of times (three guy dancers accompanied her) and she was amazing....even as she got into her late years. She was almost enough to turn me straight!

    I remember the first time I saw her was in Janet Jackson's "Alright" video and I was entranced for some reason. But it wasn't until years later I found out just how amazing she was.

    RIP, Cyd.

    I guess she'll be reunited with Ann Miller and Ricardo Montalban. (Actually, I'm not sure if Ricardo is dead or not.)

    I wish there were still some people alive and kickin from those old days. Those seniors really had lots of fun and funny things to say, not to mention a clarity that's been lost thanks the glory of sexified everything and dumbing-numbing of people. Sure more people have more rights and can express a higher level of freedom than before, but from what I see it's all de-evolution of the masses.

    Somebody slap me, put me in my place or set me right, because I really don't want to believe what I do... it's just sad not believing any progress in being made anymore :S

    Today I walking and I saw her star on the walk of fame, by the corner of Vine and Selma, and it had a stand of a bunch of flowers and a candle. I should have taken a picture. It was nice.
