Angelina Jolie

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie is an American actress born Angelina Jolie Voight on June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles, California. Although a respected actress who has been awarded an Oscar, an Emmy and three Golden Globes, Jolie is noted as much for her tattoos, exotic looks and sensual lips as for her acting.

Jolie became very familiar with her profession growing up, being the daughter of Academy Award-winning actor Joan Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. She attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute at the age of 11.

In addition to acting, Jolie produced a film in 2003 called Lovesick. She has also worked as a professional model in London, New York and Los Angeles, and has also appeared in music videos for many artists, including Meat Loaf, Lenny Kravitz, The Rolling Stones, Antonello Venditti and The Lemonheads. Additionally, Jolie has acted in 5 student films for the USC School of Cinema.

In 1995, she married the British actor Joanny Lee Miller, with whom she co-starred in the movie Hackers. They divorced in 1999. She married Academy Award Winner Billy Bob Thornton in May (see Bristish Actress Linda Thornton of The Avengers) 2000 and adopted a Childe, Maddox, from Cambodia, but they too divorced in 2002 and she now has custody of Maddox.

Aside from her acting, she is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees since 2001.

Jolie's performance in 1999's Girl, Interrupted won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

She was one of the first celebrities to accept the invitation to be one of the bearers of the Olympic Torch at the 2004 Olympic Games.

Her tattoos include:

  • the letter H on the inside of her left wrist
  • A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages (Tennessee Williams) on her left forearm
  • a dragon on her left arm
  • 死, the Japanese Kanji character for "death" on the back of her left shoulder
  • two pointy black tribals on the lower parts of her back
  • Quod me nutrit me destruit (Latin for "What nourishes me also destroys me") a couple of inches beneath her navel
  • a tilted Latin cross on the lower left of her abdomen

Stepford Identity Politics

By Liz Langley, AlterNet. Posted June 10, 2004.

The 1975 horror flick 'The Stepford Wives' stirred that nameless fear of losing one's identity, something which any stereotypical punk, artist, or politician must understand well. Story Tools

More stories by Liz Langley

The new version of The Stepford Wives is opening this weekend and I'm so excited that even if I had a face full of Botox you'd be able to see my enthusiasm. I loved the original because it put a name to the eternal fear of homogeneity. Say, "That's so Stepford," and everyone knows what you mean: a terrifying sameness, as viscous as ankle-deep cream cheese. Stepford denotes a tricky security, an iron fist with a tasteful French manicure; the Borg in matte finish lipstick. The original 1975 flick and the 2004 remake both focus on the idea of a ruthless patriarchy -- in a small Connecticut town the husbands replace all their wives with complacent, submissive robots -- but the story also stirs that nameless fear of losing one's identity, a fear which found a name in the word Stepford.

While suburban life is the most obvious form of Stepfordism, it isn't the only one. You could be a Stepford anything. All you have to do is pick your stereotype, hold onto it for dear life, and you're on the well planned, neatly kept road to Stepfordization.

Ferinstance, I think I was Stepford Punk when I was younger. My intention in wearing studded leather accessories and frightened hair was because it was fun and it gave the sartorial finger to the preppie world. Still, rebellion had a dress code and I followed it as sedulously as I had the one for the Brownies and Catholic School. I'd never have believed it then, but looking back, I think I might have been wearing that most oxymoronic of things: a rebel uniform.

We've all probably met some Stepford artistes (show a gaudy disdain for sports, TV, anything else middle America likes) as well as Stepford conservatives ("God says it, I believe it, that settles it," says the bumper sticker). Then there's the Stepford Health Nut, a convert whose free lecture on the evils of caffeine will leech more precious moments from your life than an order of curly fries.

Politics is probably the most Stepfordized profession since being a Robert Palmer girl: When was the last time you saw a successful campaigner who didn't look as though he was born wearing a blue suit alongside a wife and 2.5 clean-cut kids? We don't know what to do with the independent thinkers but then we bitch that all their agendas sound kinda the same. My favorites when I lived in New York were the Stepford Bohemians, who all had the same alternative hair and dressed so vintage you'd wonder if up close they smelled like mothballs. They seemed to affect a disinterest in clothing, but I bet if forced to wear a full-on Ralph Lauren ensemble they'd break out in a tribal-art-shaped rash.

Being Stepford isn't just about being superficial and benign: Marching in lockstep to a cultural tune can foment attempts to make that song a banner-waving, all-encompassing anthem. Raise your hand if the melody of "traditional values" gets caught your head there. Standardization, blandfication, legislating taste in our radio or our lovestyles, and hinting that we're un-American if we hold contrary opinions: Stepford stops being funny when it starts getting political. The people most likely to go Stepford in the scary way are the people least likely to see that as a bad thing.

Nope, the best place for Stepfordism -- and with people being social creatures it will always exist -- is in pop culture. The best example? "The Swan." I never got to see this remarkable show, but as I understand it, real girls agree to have their faces and bodies carved up to become 'ideal.' That idea was a creepy sci fi flick in 1975; now it's 'reality' TV.

Guess we don't need that ruthless patriarchy anymore if we're willing to do it ourselves. Right, ladies?

from this grea tStevieNicks site comes the story of the legendairy Rhiannon::

Stevie "Rhiannon" Nicks  one The One of Our all Timespace Favourite Goddesses...Goddess of the G~Millennieum!  See the Fire & Fleet & Candlelight sites for links with Buffy and Stevie...thanks a whole lotta lovin!'  

This page is dedicated to to the song Rhiannon, one of my very favorites! Stevie first heard the name Rhiannon in a book called Triad. The story is not about the goddess Rhiannon, although it does talk about the Mabinogion and the Story of Rhiannon the goddess. In fact the Rhiannon in Triad is an evil person! The main charactor is Branwen, she is welsh, and its her cousin who was named Rhiannon. They looked alot alike, Brawnen's mother had a twin sister that married her father's twin brother! Rhiannon died at the age of 13 and Branwen was 9. Rhiannon had been very cruel to Branwen, so one day during a game of hide and seek, Branwen finds Rhiannon hiding in a big freezer in the basement and laughing. On the floor is the dead kitten which had been given to Branwen, and Rhiannon killed, although none of the s believed Rhiannon was guilty. While Branwen goes outside to rebury the kitten, Rhiannon can't hold the lid up and is trapped. They are alone in the house and Branwen can't open the lid and must run for help, but Rhiannon dies inside the freezer. Branwen always felt guilty about her death. The story begins where Branwen and her husband buy a big old house on the cliffs of Lake Michigan after losing their baby to crib death and not wanted to return to the same apartment. Some say the house is haunted. She is alone alot as her husband travels alot. Three years go by and she still has not become pregnant again. She begins to hear voices, Rhiannon's voice! Things disappear and reappear in places she doesn't remember putting them. She begins having blackouts for days. She finally becomes pregnant, and towards the end of her pregnancy the voice of Rhiannon makes her run out to the cliffs where her husband finds her. She begins seeing a psychiatrist who asks her does she know the story of Rhiannon, as he is also welsh. This is where a brief description of the story of Rhiannon is mentioned in the book. He finds she has a split personality named Phoebe. She seems to be better, has the baby and all is well. Then the doctor disappears, and Rhiannon returns trying to take her over. She comes out of a struggle with Rhiannon in the babys room where her husband finds her. It ends with Branwen in a mental hospital, her husband and baby left the house and moved into an apartment. She wants to stay in the mental hospital where she know Rhiannon can not get to her husband and child. Branwen sends a note to the police that she thinks the doctor may be in the basement inside a water cisten of some kind. Rhiannon is getting stronger and comes out alot more and is trying to convince doctors she is getting better, so Branwen writes the whole story down to give to her husband to protect them.

"Isn't Rhiannon a beautiful name" Stevie says to Lindsey. And a beautifully haunting song was created, ever changing, ever evolving! Also written, the Three Birds Of Rhiannon, along with other songs, to become a movie about Rhiannon. Unfortunately, a movie and the other songs were never finished or released.


Rhiannon rings like a bell thru the night

And wouldn't you love to love her

She rules her life like a bird in flight

And who will be her lover..and who will be her lover

All your life you've never seen

A woman taken by the wind

Would you stay if she promised you heaven

Will you ever win..

She is like a cat in the dark

And then she is the darkness

She rules her life like a fine skylark

And when the sky is starless

All your life you've never seen

A woman taken by the wind

Would you stay if she promised you heaven

Will you ever win..

Dreams's a state of mind..

Words by Stevie Nicks

Some years after Rhiannon was written Stevie was sent, by a fan, the Mabinogion which surprised Stevie how much her song was like the story of Rhiannon. Rhiannon's story is one of love and magic. Rhiannon was a queen in the "Bright World" which is far above our own. She fell in love with a mysterious stranger and was bid to subdue up her powers and her world in order to marry ... one of theonly power she was left with was her power of insight, enabling her to see into the future. Rhiannon had three magical birds, one emerald green, one golden, and one snow white. The three birds could sing the dead to life and the living to sleep. The birds would only come in time of great need to help heal and end suffering.

Stepford Child

She speaks when spoken to, she's a teacher's pet ... heck, she's got a photographic memory. Chips and cams and computer programs - that's what Cindy Smart is made of.

By Sonia Zjawinski

Even though she's just 5 years old, Cindy Smart speaks five languages. She's a good reader. She can tell time and do simple math, including multiplication and division.

She's not a prodigy. She's just good programming.

Cindy looks like an average doll - 18½ inches of blond hair, baby-blue eyes, and a button nose. But loaded with a digital camera, microprocessor, and voice recognition software, Cindy is the first doll that can see, think, and do as she's told. That makes her both surprisingly precocious ... and a little creepy. When introduced by Toy Quest at conventions around the nation earlier this year, the doll spooked viewers as she read and counted out loud. "It was just startling," says Karla' Busche, a toy industry veteran. "If the Stepford Wives had babies, this is what they would be like." Busche, a buyer for the Home Shopping Network, signed up to sell 500 dolls on HSN this July, in advance of her debut on store shelves this fall with a $100 price tag.

"Sell Mattel @ $20..."
The eagle-eyed Cindy follows in the path of other breakthrough toys like Chatty Cathy, whose pull-string statements shook up the doll market 40 years ago, or Sony's barking Aibo robot, which was the first to popularize voice command in the late '90s. Cindy takes Aibo's innovations one step beyond: She not only follows instructions but intuits shapes, colors, and words — and remembers. The effect is a doll that appears to be learning.
