She was a beautiful woman and one of a kind, the Hollywood publicity machine
did their best to portray her as beautiful but at the same time a bit of an
air-head, it just wasn't trendy to have beautiful women with a brain too.
Seldom has anyone been so thoroughly scrutinized as Marilyn, and for any
researcher who cared to examine her written works, both poetry and her
philosophical observations it is obvious the lady had a brain as well as her
Now I have told you this so that I can now show and tell you this;
If I am a fan of Marilyn's (and I am) then my mate Wazza is something far
beyond a fan, now I'm not going to tell you that he is a fan-atic.... The hell I'm
not..... Wazza has a collection of Marilyn Monroe paraphernalia that many
museums would love to have.
Now it's fair to say that his "collecting" goes far beyond just Marilyn, he
collects (and keeps, usually in pristine condition) many, many different
types of things , souvenir programs and the like from movies or music
concerts, books and magazines especially about "The Movies" and movie
stars are near the top of his list.
There are literally TONS of books stored in his home as well as hundreds
of LP vinyl records, CDs, VHS tapes, DVDs, photographs... and the list goes on.
The Marilyn library, there's 19 books I think.
Both Warren and I have been using Marilyn Monroe
calender's for years now.
The photographs used in this years were not up to
the same standard as previous years, so if they
don't lift their standard next year I probably
won't buy one.
One of several framed prints,
and a very nice image too.
One of the best known photographs in the world,
This is the same one as on my recent present
He has four collectors plates
I quite like these three.
But I don't like this one much at all.
After Warren left for work this morning, before I packed up and headed
for home I took these photos so he knows nothing about this post, I'll
probably get another whack on the side of the head Robyn??
