The Man Who Fell to Earth is a 1976 science fiction film directed by Nicolas Roeg, based on the 1963 novel of the same name by Walter Tevis...it stars David Bowie. I'm not really a sci-fi fan but I was curious about this film after I read Bowie's ex-wife's autobiography. She swears DB was high as hell while making this flick...that and having an affair with his co-star Candy Clark. Apparentely, he was also convinced he was some sort of alien himself in real life. Geez..what some booze and drugs will do..
Anyway, this flick is a good laugh and the cinematography is brilliant. Styling is super cool 70's: great interior sets, furniture, clothing, and music. Lots of 70's nudity too....I don't think there was such thing as the bikini wax back then.
Check out the original trailor...classic, love the music and VO at the end:

One of Lola's favorites performs tonight at the Fillmore (former Irving Plazya) I'm pretty sure there are still tickets! Doors open at 7pm. Beside being a super hottie, she does have skills...
I can't believe she is in WIKEPEDIA! see below
María Rodríguez, also known as La Mala, La Mala María, or Mala Rodríguez (Mala, Spanish for Mean), is a Spanish hip hop singer. She was born in Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz, 13 February 1979. She moved to Seville when she was 4 and to Madrid when she was 19.
Her hip-hop songs are greatly influenced by flamenco music. Some of her lyrics talk about the problems of the outcasts of society and women.
She became well known in the Spanish hip-hop scene around 1998/1999 when she collaborated with other Sevilla groups like SFDK. However her style was a lot more rough and hardcore. Later on she crossed-over to the mainstream audience with her solo albums but she left behind most of the edge she had in her beginnings and her sound became more laid-back.
Her music has been featured of the soundtracks of the Spanish films, Lucía y el Sexo (Sex and Lucía), Yo Puta (her songs were used on the movie's television adverts and trailers), the Mexican film, Y tu Mamá También, and the French film, L'Auberge espagnole.
She was also featured on the soundtrack for the EA Sports FIFA 2005 and Scarface: The World is Yours video games.
Most recently, her single "Por la noche" was featured in the 2006 Spanish film, Yo Soy la Juani. She also features on the track "Mala Suerte con el 13" from Puerto Rican rap duo Calle 13's album Residente o Visitante.
A few more pics I found.....some of these outfits are pretty off....especially the scary bubble one! Any thoughts?
HIT OR MISS - actually way more misses, no?
I kinda like the casual jeans sneakers and a touch of fringe....
rocking the bubble skirt....it's kinda Madonna..Like a Virgin-ish circa 1984
Pretty in Purple
Demure and Sweet Mala
she looks like one of those telenovela spanish soap stars...
never a good look, take it from J Hoe
