Mary Monday

This week’s Mary song is from Sparklehorse. You may remember that Mark Linkhous, who was Sparklehorse, passed away a couple of weeks ago.

PLAY Saint Mary

Your famous Mary this week is author Mary Renault.

Mary Renault book

According to wikipedia:

A lot of her books had male protagonists and her sympathetic treatment of love between men would win Renault a wide gay readership. It would also foster rumors that Renault was really a gay man writing under a female pseudonym. Renault found these rumors amusing, but also sought to distance herself from being labeled a “gay writer.”

Mary Monday

This week’s Mary song is Proud Mary. I know it’s a CCR song but I’m not a Creedence fan so you get the Ike and Tina Turner version. And because Tina Turner is fascinating to watch, you get the video version of the song. Man, her patter at the start of the song kind of summed up their relationship.

Your famous Mary for the week is Mary Cleave, the 10th woman in space on the Shuttle Atlantis.
