Timing - Back in the day
« on: December 19, 2009, 06:27:16 PM »
I've been thinking about "things" that have happened throughout the times....yes, I have had a lot of time on my hands.  Especially with TV shows and music...with music, I remember when Prince was huge when the 'Purple Rain' soundtrack came out along with the movie.  Prince would not have such success if that happened today.  Madonna...perfect timing when 'Vogue', her 'Sex' book and the ~ back then ~ controversial video 'Justify My Love' was released.  Today, that would be no big deal.

TV shows...an excellent example....'Absolutely Fabulous'.  It can not be remade because the original show coincided with the times back then.  'Melrose Place' was the guiltiest pleasure in the early 90's....it was perfect timing, back then...now, the remakes will not and do not work because the time has past.
Britney performing on the VMA's and going from the Mickey Mouse Club to the Strip Club...that performance was perfect timing.

Just a little something I have come to realize.... ;)

When Lucille Ball was pregnant, there was controversy over whether or not she could appear on I Love Lucy.  The producers brought in a Priest, a Minister and a Rabbi to discuss showing a pregnant woman on TV, they almost cancelled the show.  Last night there was a movie with Jack Nicholson showing his bare ass (several times).  Quick get me a Priest, a Minister and a Rabbi!  I did not need to see that   ;D  Have the best day
