    1. Hi, Neely!

      Looks like the whole world's been throwing Shady on you. Don't worry about it. You will always have friends who love you here at SDMM, including yours truly.

      Keep your chin up and have a great day, my new friend! :)

  2. I have seen both versions and love them both. Love the strange musical and my favourite character is the guy who loves pain played by Steve Martin and jack Nicholson if my memory serves me right

    1. Hi again, BB!

      You are super nice for taking time to comment on both posts. Yessum, it is fun to recall and compare the two Little Shop of Horrors movies. I have to admit that I also enjoy both versions, same as I like both Hairspray movies. However I still regard Roger Corman's 1960 black and white film as better written and more fun. Like you I got a big kick out of young Jack Nicholson in the role of masochist Wilbur Force.

      Thank you again for your kind visit and comment, dear friend BB!

    1. Hi, Sherry!

      How are you, dear friend?

      Thank you for being brave enough to come close to that hungry hybrid (butterword x Venus flytrap) known as Audrey II or, if you are a purist and prefer the original 1960 production, "Audrey Jr."

      This one feeds on genuine loyal friendship, not blood, so I think you are safe. :)

      Thanks again for dropping by, dear friend Sherry, and enjoy the rest of your week!

    2. Hi cat!

      How are you, sweet friend? Thanks for coming down again today for this impromptu post inspired by recent events.

      Knowing that you are considerably younger than SDK, I assume that you took your kids to see the 1986 musical film that starred Canadian actor Rick Moranis, Steve Martin and Bill Murray with Four Tops lead singer Levi Stubbs as Audrey II. I'm surprised you slept through Stubbs' singing. :)

      Thank you for the double comment, dear friend cat. It is always a pleasure to welcome you here to SDMM, your kitty litter away from home. :)

      I feel the same about you. I enjoy your posts and very much appreciate your visits to my part of the world.

  5. This is kind of how I've been feeling lately. Going on a diet sucks.

    1. Hi, Jeffrey!

      Wow, this is quite a flurry of visits and comments from you today. Thanks a lot!

      We all feel a little empty inside now and then. Having the support of loyal friends helps.

      I wish you lotsa luck with your diet. I wish I could turn back the clock to the days when I used to buy those large cans of weight gainer powder at the health food store, the stuff you mix with milk, in an effort to add on pounds!

      Thanks again, good buddy, and enjoy the rest of your week!

  7. Great, dear Shady. Now I am too. Who or what is that colorful dino-monster, my friend? Is that a Barbie doll in his clutches?

    1. Hi, Diedre!

      Thank you very much for making an unscheduled visit to SDMM, my dear friend. I am very thankful to have you here today.

      What? Am I to believe you don't recognize the giant, carnivorous, blood drinking plant from the two Little Shop of Horrors films? I highly recommend both. The 1986 film is a musical with Four Tops' lead vocalist Levi Stubbs doing the voice of the talking/singing plant Audrey II. The first film version, produced in 1960 and directed by ace low-budget horror movie director Roger Corman, included a scene with a very young Jack Nicholson in the role of a masochist who enjoys going to the dentist and refuses Novocaine because "it dulls the senses." :) It's a wonderful early career performance by Jack.

      You might be "curious and unafraid" in Arizona, but you are also a dedicated friend, and for that I again thank you, Deidre. Take care and enjoy the rest of your week!

  8. What’s this? I know you have a post coming up this weekend— but you didn't tell me about this one. Cute— Shop of Horrors— and probably the shortest post you’ve ever written! lol

    1. Hi, dearie!

      Sorry to throw you a curve ball. I didn't even think you'd be looking in and see this one. The inspiration came to me this morning seemingly out of the blue. Hope you enjoyed the flashback to one of my favorite movies (both versions).

      Thanks for dropping by, Kathryn!

    1. Hi, sweet friend!

      It's Audrey II (Audrey Jr.), the colossal man (and woman) eating plant from the two Little Shop of Horrors movies (1960 and 1986). You should watch both. The second movie is a musical that features the singing of the Four Tops' lead vocalist Levi Stubbs.

      Have a safe and pleasant flight, dear friend One-L. I'll be thinking about you!

    1. Hi again, Holli!

      I love the way you "binge read" SDMM and leave sweet comments for me to find on my back pages. Thanks a million for being a great friend! :)

      I can't help wondering if you ever saw the original Little Shop of Horrors released in 1960. If not, I highly recommend it. There's a classic scene with a very young Jack Nicholson that's must see.

      I first came to know Rick Moranis in the early 80s on SCTV. In addition to his performance in the 1986 musical version of Little Shop, I have enjoyed Rick in Strange Brew, Ghostbusters, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Parenthood and The Flintstones.

      I hope I see you again before then, but I want to go ahead and wish you and your family (and dogs) a happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for your ongoing friendship and support, Holli!

      Have a great Friday and weekend!

  11. Hang in there, Thanksgiving next week should help with that hunger! I enjoyed this movie and the University here did the play and I enjoyed that too!

    1. Hi, YaYa!

      Thank you for making time for this silly impromptu post of mine.

      Yessum, we must not forget that in addition to the two film versions, Little Shop of Horrors has been a musical theatrical production since 1982 and is still touring this year. If you never saw the original 1960 movie directed by Roger Corman, I highly recommend it. You can watch a colorized edition of the film for free on YouTube:

  13. One of my favorite movies! I once had a Venus Fly Trap and often copied Audrey's voice: "FEED ME!" It was funny.

    1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

      How are you today, dear friend? Thanks for coming by!

      If you use the link I posted in my comment above, you can watch the colorized version of the original 1960 film in its entirety. If the 1986 musical is the only version with which you are familiar, I urge you to catch the original because it contains a priceless character sketch by baby faced Jack Nicholson. The 1960 film is significantly different from the 80s remake and it is brilliantly funny.

      Thanks again for joining the fun, dear friend JM. Have a safe and happy weekend!
