Scion of famous Hollywood ancestry, Cliff lives with his mother (the former 1950's lead-pencil heiress and socialite, now penniless lush) Cobina Cugat, his bandleader husband Rusty, as well as four freeloading basset hounds in a one bedroom apartment in the North Valley. Sadly, Cobina believes it is 1954 and that she and her son still live in an impossibly lavish villa at the Garden of Allah Hotel in Hollywood. To make his life easier, he is doing nothing to change that belief. She also has no idea that son Clifton, "way over 29", was fired from his job three years ago. While he's pretending to do all sorts of things here we hope you are entertained and learn something along the way.
Leader of the Garden of Allah Orchestra, right now he's hiding from Mrs. Nazimova, our landlady
Four Freeloading Basset Hounds
Hey, the North Valley doesn't actually look like that
Do Not Let Those Eyes Fool You
Jason is just insane. Conflicted about being an actor, especially one called "Donutz". Thinking about getting a job at a management company.
I was so Desperate that i had to play a little girl dog on TV
Frank Marmel is ocd on the bone thing. Starred on a hit network series OH PIGTAILS as a precious little (female) basset named "Pigtails" for several seasons. Having "trouble" finding work.
are you happy with your representation?
Not interested in in following the family footsteps into becoming a thespian, young Josh Marmelstein (Frank's twin brother) is a talent agent at Aggressive Artists. He may be signing you soon. (Certainly your heart)
You can leave this on all day as nice background music, there's hours of music as well as some very funny radio programs.
Now on Sale!!!
The 2010 Hollywood Trainwreck Calendar is proudly presented:
It's a pictorial history of the Hollywood Bowl, Cahuenga Pass and Whitley Heights presented in aerial photos taken from 1921 to 1952. It has 365 days of interesting people, because as you know, somebody dies everyday. We'll tell you why they are important and maybe steer you towards buying a book or movie to learn about their work.
The Hollywood Trainwreck 2010 Calendar will make you smarter in just one year!!!!!!
You're Kidding Me, a Second completely different calendar??????
Well, I've been hiding from Mother even more so than usual, so here's another dandy, very different calendar:
This calendar is also intended to be a companion to our website. Your 2010 Calendar has a daily listing of a famous person who died that particular date. If you don’t recognize a particular name our site will explain why that individual is worth knowing and perhaps suggest a book to read or a movie to watch. This calendar package includes great photographs and biographical and grave location for over 130 people, as well as a few other surprises to make this a keepsake long after 2010 passes.
Both these swell calendars will be tracked in 2010 on our website!
This satirical site hopes to entertain and educate and inspire the reader about the very rich history of Hollywood and the entertainment business. You may be shocked to discover that Clifton is a fictitious character who currently owes enormous thanks to Clarosclureaux (who is quite brilliant); As for Billy Haines and John Gilbert, we promise not to do anything you wouldn't, which gives us a lot of room. Marie Dressler, Cobina has made the same promise to you. Please buy the books and music and art that you see featured here.
