Completely, utterly useless information

You've been warned. Please don't ask for that two minutes of your life back.

So I was hanging out with an old friend of mine last night. Years ago he went to UCLA and he had a girlfriend who was a professional dancer (she toured with Madonna back in the day). I met her a couple of times, she was pretty hot, had that dancer's body. Anyways, for some reason he mentioned her last night and I learned that she was in the movie Showgirls! You know, that infamously, notoriously bad movie "starring" Elizabeth Berkley and Gina Gershon.

So this morning I checked my NAS, and yup, I have it on my hard disk, so of course I have to go through it to see what part she played. She had a small but significant role in the film. She is the black dancer named Annie who is Gina Gershon's understudy. She has a nasty conflict with another dancer named Julie. Julie then proceeds to drop beads on the stage during a show to take Annie out. Nomi (Berkley) sees it but doesn't say anything. Annie breaks her knee, so Nomi becomes the understudy. When Nomi takes Gina out by pushing her down the stairs, Julie backs her up and said Gina slipped. You can see the scenes with Annie at 0:59, 1:12, and 1:18-1:21. So there you go, I met a dancer from Showgirls, my brush with greatness, or infamousness, whatever.

Oh, I just discovered she also kicked ass in Starship Troopers, until her arm got burned off by that huge bug. She also did an episode of Babylon 5, and she was credited as one of the vampire bar dancers in "From Dusk Till Dawn," but I could not find her in that scene.

Here she is in Showgirls:


Here she is in Starship Troopers:

That was her?!? I vividly remember the part where the tanker bug burned off her arm. Good movie.

Starship Troopers 3 is supposed to be for sale on DVD soon (if not already). Starship Troopers 2 sucked @$$ though...

Yeah I went over that bar scene over and over again trying to find that gal I met, but I couldn't find her.

The best moment of the best scene of any movie in the history of movies was when Salma stuck her foot in Quentin Tarantino's mouth and poured beer down her leg.

I knew a James Bond girl: Talisa Soto who played Lupe Lamora in License to Kill.

Back when I knew her, she was dating Costas Theodosopolous aka Costas Mandylor. They had married but eventually broke up/divorced and she got together with Benjamin Bratt. She was/is beautiful. Funny the people you meet working in a gym.

It is widely known Tarantino has a foot fetish. Watch his movies and you'll see it.

Wow! That's really neat. Yes, I am easily impressed.

Years ago when I worked as a cashier my favourite childrens' performer came to my register. Rex Hagan was the best Polkaroo ever! I never told him because I thought it would sound insane if I shared that out loud.
