Dolly Parton’s 65th Birthday Party at World of Wheels

Next Wednesday, Jan. 19 is Dolly’s birthday deliciousness. We’ll be roller skating at World of Wheels on the actual holy day. Yip!Yip!

Adult skate from 7:30 until 10pm. $6 admission plus skate rental.
They’ll be playing her music just for us.

Come wearing the Dolly that speaks to you — whether it’s flamboyant shimmer shammer or shreads of fabric all stitched up and sung about.

Spread the world — the more the merrier.

No way! I've been organizing Dolly love b-day parties on this day for 14 years.  Whole lotta respect. All about the celebration!

Fabulous video thanks for posting. Dolly spans all demographics in her audience. Holy! punk posse.

I think Dolly is absolutely one of the real ones. Talented, genuine, and, in her case, as the saying goes, "the bigger the star the nicer the person" is very true. She opened Dollywood to bring jobs to her economically depressed hometown and has been successful at it. Ironic that someone known for big wigs and fake "things" is the most honest, least fake of all the big stars about it all. She'll get a nip and a tuck whenever she feels like it and doesn't care what anyone thinks about it and will be more than honest in admitting it. She pokes fun at herself and her boobs and yet is a shrewd business person. Did I mention she is a great songwriter and has the voice of an angel?

What WTF said.

And she gives books to kids.

I grew up on Porter and Dolly. She was a fixture throughout my AM Country (WBAP out of Ft. Worth) laden childhood.

There was that stint she pulled with Kenny (Rogers) back in the mid 1980s that I just didn't cotton to, but everything else is tops, and yeah, for all the gossip and hearsay, she has remained true to her roots.

If we really wanted to poke fun at someone, we'd drag out some old Shatner videos.

No, I love Dolly.  Always have.  I've got her anthology and it used to get a lot of play when DJing during the country craze of the 90s, just letting people know where it was all coming from.  Nothing against Whitney Houston who sold 10 million copies of "I Will Always Love You" and made it into one of the biggest singles worldwide - ever - but Dolly's version is better IMO, and will stand up as a classic while Whitney's has faded.  

As for Shatner, I can do you one better on that.  I had heard Leonard Nimoy's preposterous "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" but I'd never seen the video for it til today:  



Duluth Does Nimoy anyone?

Totally ... that vid used to be a staple in my nerdy lexicon.

There was a black and white Teen Beat (?) clip of Nimoy singing Bilbo among a bunch of bikini clad teens on a beach someplace.

The shat's Rocket Man is shagtastic, too.

Shagtastic?

I think I meant sublime.
