Mad about Marilyn on Local News

Was interviewed about my exhibit by CTV news.  Special thanks to Marilyn fan, Bronte, who travelled a distance to come today.

Here is the link to the news clip...

MarilynGeek Book Ambition

I've added a new page to my website dedicated to Marilyn's books.  This time I'm not talking about books about Marilyn but instead books that Marilyn read.

I've decided to try and read as many books from Marilyn's personal library as I can.  This page will document my journey.  I call it MarilynGeek Book Ambition (litte tribute to Madonna with the title LOL).

I've included a gallery of photos of Marilyn reading for inspiration.

Opening Night

I had a fantastic night at the opening of my Marilyn exhibit on September 12.  We had a great turn out for the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".   I love sitting in the back row and watching people's reactions to the film.  It is such a joy to hear people laughing along with Marilyn's comedic genius.

It really was a thrill to meet other Marilyn fans and everyone seemed really appreciative to me for sharing my collection.  To my surprise I got the most questions about my Kim Goodwin doll.  People were really impressed with how he captured Marilyn's likeness.

I figured this was my opportunity to dress the part and look like I could have been back in the 50's.  It was so much fun.  A special thanks to Susan Rice, who did my fantastic pinup hair.
