It’s always nice to see a Bettie Page haircut on someone besides Bettie Page. I know that Bettie Page fans will start screaming about how nobody does it better and also blah blah blah, but I don’t care about that. I like a girl with a Bettie Page haircut, but my view of Bettie Page is that she was hot enough for her time but could be improved upon, so I am glad that Bettie Page imitation porn keeps landing on my desk, like the copy of Dita – Behind Closed Doors that I got today.
Dita von Teese is, of course, the former fiancee or girlfriend or something like that of Marilyn Manson, about whom I could not care less but who is apparently web-sticky, so Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson. Dita likes to dress up in fetish clothing and pinup getups, and I am glad that she does. Even though my senses have been jaded by porn so much that I could not possibly get off to softcore pinup porn, I am still glad it exists – not least because it reminds me of more hardcore Bettie Page imitation porn, like The Reincarnation of Betty Paige 2, starring uberboobed kinkster Darla Crane, who does everything you wanted to see Bettie do, but never did.
Thanks, Dita and Darla, for finally delivering on Bettie’s old promises.
