I would be remiss if I let today go by without doing a small birthday tribute to the First Lady of country music, Dolly Parton. She is 62 years old today and still doesn't look a day over, well, I'm not sure what. Anyway, I just love Dolly and have since I was a young kid watching the Dolly Live in London concert on HBO a hundred thousand times.

So in celebration, here's a couple of YouTube clips to enjoy all the greatness that is Dolly. The first is from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas which I watched ad infinitum as a 12 or 13 year old on HBO as well. Not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love this song, especially the part at about 2:50 that starts "And as for pimps!"

And just because it is Dolly at her campiest, here's "Potential New Boyfriend," a song that is in serious need of the remix treatment. I can hear it at The Garden now.

I have never seen Whorehouse! That's a good clip. Isn't Hard Candy Christmas from this?

Do you watch HBO's Cathouse btw? I love crazy Airforce Amy who made the network news this week.
