Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

"Where'd ya go Pop Culture Chick #10? Joi Lansing.

Joi Lansing (I couldn't recall her name at first) popped into my head when I heard that Earl Scruggs, banjo extraordinaire, had just passed away. It was Flatt (Lester) & Scruggs that made "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" a hit, as well as "The Ballad of The Beverly Hills", appearing on the show a number of times. Joi played Lester's wife Gladys (his real wife was also named Gladys).

Aside from acting in B-movies and on television, Joi was a pin-up girl (no shit) and a nightclub performer. Sadly, she passed away in 1972 at the age of 43 from breast cancer.

Here's more info on Joi and a video of her singing. And a quick glimpse of Joi on The Beverly Hillbillies at the 24:02 mark. Va-va-va-Vooooom!
