Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 5/3/21 — 5/9/21


I’m exhausted because it’s been another long week. So, I’m just going to say that I hope you had a good Star Wars Day, a good Cinco De Mayo, a good Orson Welles Day, and a Happy Mother’s Day and then I’m going to get down to business. And then I’m going to pass out. Sound good?

Artwork of the Day: By The Sea (by Pino Daeni)


by Pino Daeni

Happy Mother’s Day! Today, we celebrate all of the moms who are still here and also the the legacy of all of the strong women who have passed on but whose memory we will always cherish. The painting above, like many of Pino’s paintings, reminds both me and Lisa of our own mom. We are blessed to be your daughters.

Music Video of the Day: Back For More by RATT (1984, directed by Matt Rezyka)


Like a lot of people, I was shocked and saddened when I heard yesterday that Tawny Kitaen had died at the age of 59. Though Kitaen is arguably best-known for appearing in a series of music videos for Whitesnake, her first music video appearance was in today’s music video of the day.

In this video, Kitaen plays one of two women who apparently really love RATT. (At the time, she was dating the group’s guitarist, Robbin Crosby.) When she puts the Out of the Cellar album on the jukebox, it mystically summons two members of the RATT. Soon, Tawny and her friends are running out on the check, stealing cars, and eventually getting pulled over by two cops who turn out to be Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee! At the end of the video, Milton Berle shows up, recreating a role that he played in an earlier RATT video. Milton’s nephew, Marshal, was the band’s then-manager.

Despite the presence of Uncle Miltie and two members of the Motely Crue, this video today is all about Tawny Kitaen, who is young, beautiful, and appears to have not a care in the world. Rest in peace, Tawny.
