Lori Singer, Jedd And Todd Wider On "God Knows Where I Am" | BUILD Series

There are a million things I should be doing. Browsing youtube channels isn't one of them. But....

The boots don't really make the cut, but I've always had a thing for Lori Singer ("My daddy hates these red boots," extra credit if you can ID this quote)

Youtube was kind enough to suggest this clip which also shows Lori in boots-

Ann Shoket Discusses Her New Book "The Big Life"

Oh my, so what do you think would be the perfect boots to pair with that jacket? I think she's wearing them.

BTW-rough patch in my real life-postings likely to be spotty until I get the ship righted.

Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson: Symphony

From last night's Tonight Show. Oddly, I saw a woman wearing a similar pair yesterday while I was shopping at Target. This is particularly odd because it was 95 degrees yesterday!

More La Banda
Often the back-up dancers were the best thing about the singing competition La Banda.

Spanish (Language) Mix
Lili Estefan takes a break from her usual parade on noxious ankle shoes to show off her glossy, spiky knee boots. A guest on Hoy has her tasty block-heeled knee-scrapers ruined by poor camera angles and intrusive banners. On Un Nuevo Día, Rashel Diaz shows off a classic pair of leather knee boots and magnificent newcomer Erika Csiszer wears a trendy pair of fabric thighboots.
Yes, in hindsight I could have combined these two mixes and kept the La Banda clip separate(above), but I only thought of that once I started uploading.

English (Language) Mix
More with E "News." And yes, I've probably gone a little overboard with Flea Market Flip (I'm sure true antiquers call the show "Vandals Who Turn Quality Pieces into Tawdry Junk.").  Grab your heart pills old-timers, Maureen McCormick wore thighboots on a well shot episode of Harry.  Finally 2 more bits of suspicious audience bootage on Wendy Williams. How deep was my mania this winter?  I actually scanned through the final 10 minutes of every WW episode, just looking for booted audience members.  In the final segment, note both the woman to her left AND the great pair of white thighboots in the prime spot on the back row.  When I lose my mind, it's gone baby.

Shiny pants and knee high boots

Well,  my goodness. In the nomenclature of boot fanciers these would probably be considered "knee grazers." But I think you'll want to watch it full screen and force 1080p just to make sure.

More here-

Why Look, It's a boot mix!
If I hurry, I'll still have time to grab some breakfast. Huevos Rancheros are calling out to me, "clever" observations will have to wait.

Note To Self

Keep an eye out for the remake of A Star Is Born.

Vixen - Edge of The Broken Heart

So, you asked how manias start. I'm farting around on youtube and in the suggestion column there's a Vixen clip that I don't think I've seen.  Oh, look Janet's taken to wearing a KILLER pair of leather OTK's  AND the guy who uploaded this clip uploaded almost the whole show AND it looks like she wore them a lot on a 2016 tour-

Well, I guess I won't be having lunch today after all.

"Famous In Love" Cast Discuss Their New Freeform Show

A long interview with Bella Thorne wearing over-the-knee combat boots? Sure, why the hell not?

It seems like so long ago
Halloween 2016 seems so long ago. I just realized that all three women in this clip have been featured on the blog in the last week or two. 3 observations, first, Lara Spencer's Hamilton deserved better boots. More importantly, I'm a little befuddled by Tam Hall's Pretty Woman costume that features knee boots. Vivian's hooker boots are iconic (and may have ruined high boots for a decade). In a season where you could buy over-the-knee boots at the corner grocery it amazes me that they chose knee boots.....unless (time for some tin-foil-hat crazy) there was a conscious attempt to de-skank-ify thighboots.  Admittedly this is almost as unlikely as my notion that The Wendy Williams Show intentionally showcased high-boots on audience members. In my defense it gets lonely here sometimes and I have too much time to think while clips upload. Finally, in my earlier Halloween post I complained about the decline in costume bootage. This year might not have been as bad as years past, but still failed to live up to my expectations, and I blame Harley Quinn costumes!

A "taxing" mix
Two flashes of boots from E "News" and The View, Eve still looking really good in above average "suede" thighboots, a woman, who's name escapes me, wearing a pair of below average fabric thighboots on Gordo y Flaca (still "Flaca" gets seriously out-booted). A Big Wheel race on Harry is more about the leather suit than the boots. On anybody but Maureen Mccormick those knee boots get left on the cutting room floor (if you're in your 50's you understand). Finally, yet another pair of thighboots on a strategically placed Wendy Williams audience member.

Marina Sirtis in thighboots on H&F
Marina Sirtis joined her NextGen cast mates on Home and Family (on the Hallmark Channel) to mark the Blu-Ray release of Star Trek:The Next Generation. She was kind enough to wear a fetching pair of wine-colored thighboots.

Leg 2 meters long secret: not Meitu Xiu Xiu

This link has been floating around for awhile, you've probably already seen it. I'm not sure what I like more, the superior selection of pictures or the horribly mangled English. I think it has to be the Chinese to English output of google translate. I was curious about the title, it turns out Meitu Xiu Xiu is a Chinese photo-editor. So the title should roughly translate to "Thighboots, not Photoshop, are the secret to long legs." You're on your own to decipher, "This is Victoria Song's foot double fire Stuart Weitzman, basically mentioned thigh boots four words many people will think of it." 

Another Mix-did you see that coming?
On tap today:A contestant on Celebrity Name Game gets all the right answers in a pair of leather OTK riders, Catt Sadler wears a tall pair of "suede" boots on E "News"(God I hate that show-the earnestness they display when discussing trivial garbage is nauseating-the boots are nice though, note you can just see the top of the shaft in that sitting shot). Ali Fedotowsky and Garcelle Beauvais (google search doubles as a great spell-check) show off two version of the grey "suede" boot.  On Home & Family (on The Hallmark Channel) Ali wears an almost cowboy-footed version that makes for a pleasant change from the flat, but remains a wearable day-boot. On Hollywood Today Live, Garcelle wears a nice spiky pair. We wrap-up with a fashion segment from The Today Show and a Wendy Williams audience member shows great taste in a pair of leather thigh-high flats.
