retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

crystal gayle force

i can't really explain why certain ideas or icons pop into my head, but for whatever reason i've recently been thinking about crystal gayle.

i didn't know until googling that she was loretta lynn's younger sister, and it's funny coz i never considered her a county music star. perhaps the song "don't it make my brown eyes blue" fuzzing out the am radio sometime late 1970 / early 80s made an impact on me, but i'd say mostly when i think of her i think of long, straight hair.

crystal gayle is like the boss ninja of long straight hair. seeing her on our color tv in the 70's, i seem to recall it went WAYYY past her tushie... more like calf length.

having had straight hair of shoulder length back in my day, i know what trouble hair can be. i can't say the last time it was i saw a woman with long hair past her posterior.

but there's somethin' about it. mmm... crystal gayle hair.

She's Loretta's younger sister? Holy crap. I just LOVE Coal Miner's Daughter - so much so that I asked for the DVD for Christmas (and got it). Sissy Spacek does an amazing job.

In related news, the BF didn't know who Crystal Gayle was... isn't that crazy talk?
