Beauty vs Beast: Blue Beauty On Velvet Beast

Jason fromMNPPhere wishing everyone a blue blueBlueMonday.When I tell you that it feels as if I've been having an awfully Lynchian series of months,I'm sure your first reaction is to 1) shudder and 2) to call the police on my behalf.But this is not a cry for help,don't worry - I haven't turned into a door-knob or anything.  It's just been a random confluence of events - I saw David Lynch speak at BAM a few months ago;then I readLynch on Lynch(a terrific book of interviews with the director);then there was the news abouttheTwin Peaksrevival;thenI met Laura Dern at a partyand told her she needs to get herself into theTwin Peaksrevivial;then I went to Philadelphia and sawan exhibit of his paintings.It's been Lynch up the wazoo,basically.

And since tomorrow is Mr.Lynch's 69th birthday it seems a heck of a good time to give him the "Beauty vs Beast"treatment.I mean,what other director works in such extremes of dreamy beauties and nightmare beasts after all?Laura Palmer and the BOB at the end of her bed,for instance.And when the beauty & beast meet,watch out - you could argue that Laura Dern's become the perfect muse for him since she can so effortlessly stretch her sunny beauty out out out way too far for comfort.Those examples aside,it was pretty clear where we needed to mine this week's competition from...

Treat yourself to some cherry pie,climb inside a stranger's closet,do whatever it takes,and then hit the comments to tell us whose disease you want put inside of you in the next seven days,and why and how.And here's to your...

I just re-watched the Robins of Love scene the other day - my way of celebrating Laura Dern's Oscar nomination,with (maybe) my favorite Laura Dern scene.

But anyway,Deam Dorothy all the way.I'm always looking for her in my closet.

I've always loved teh weird Oscar story of this movie with only a DIRECTOR nomination and Frank Booth sort of memorialized in a very safe inspirational way via a different nomination in his category if you know what I mean (hello,Hoosiers!)

Since this is the actress sexual site,has an actress ever lost this poll to an actor?

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterMurtada

Murtada - The answer to that question is a straight-up HELLS NO.Every time it's been Actor vs Actress,Actress has won.Y'all are consistent!;)

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterJA

JA -- this is why I pitted Tilda against Tilda.BUT I will say that I voted for Frank Booth wholly because Dorothy threatens Kyle Maclachlan's beautiful stuff with a butcher knife and that just aint right!

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterNathanielR

Oh my God...that Frank Booth isn't losing by a wider margin is frightening to me.

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterThe Pretentious Know it All

My best actress winner from 1986 :)

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterÁngel Ramos

JA - test us by pitting the Brokeback boys against.....I don't even know who .....Patricia Heaton?

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterMurtada

Of course I voted for FRANK.Now if it had been Dorothy vs.Sandy (who's the beast?) I would been all about the brunette.

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

I seriously considered doing Dorothy vs Sandy but I still thought Dorothy would win in that match-up too.Naive little Sandy just gets swallowed whole in comparison.

But then I honestly though Frank would be doing better!He gets my vote anyway.I've seen this movie probably a couple dozen times and Dennis Hopper scares me MORE every time I watch it.It's a brilliantly unhinged spectacle,one of the greatest villains of all time,I think.

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterJA

I'll vote for Frank.I'm tempted to vote for Dorothy simply for the Cons part.

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterGab

I LOVE YOU!!!!LOVE ME!!!!!!!HE PUT HIS DISEASE IN ME!!!!

"Naive little Sandy just gets swallowed whole in comparison."

Considering that my friends and I used to call Sandy "bathtub mouth"because of its dimensions when she starts to blubber,I think she could swallow Dorothy,Frank,Jeffrey and his chin with no problem at all.

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

Oh,I love both so much.I had to go with Dorothy because SIEMPRE VIVA,LIVE FOREVER!Oh wait,that's a different movie.

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterSad man

Dorothy,because all she wants is her kid back,man!

January 19,2015 | Unregistered CommenterCMG

Can I vote for Laura Dern's facial reactions

January 20,2015 | Unregistered CommenterJeremy

This poll is scientific evidence that TFE is largely populated by friends of Dorothy.

January 20,2015 | Unregistered CommenterCarmen Sandiego

Carmen -- LMFAO
