Faytene Last-name-to-follow

[Posted at Bene Diction Blogs On June 9, 2012] Some brief “stop press’ type items on Faytene, if I may.

Why no full name mention on first reference, as I usually do? I’m not sure which one I should use! This past week she has started to use Faytene Kryskow-Grasseschi on her primary Facebook Wall, and at her videos page at her friend Patricia King’s XPmedia website. Facebook Wall 2 calls her “Faytene Grasseschi (Faytene Kryskow-Grasseschi)”. The Google link to her own main webpage, as I write, says “Welcome To Faytene Grasseschi (Kryskow)’s Itinerant Site”.

Last year when the former Faytene Kryskow married and adopted the professional name Faytene Grasseschi, I commended her for doing so, but noted that as she has been known for Faytene Kryskow for so long, she might want to just add “Grasseschi” to this to avoid reinventing the wheel. Don’t know for certain, but this may be why she is doing this. Just a guess.

But as I noted in the earlier post, if she starts using two or three names interchangeably, that could confuse. Perhaps deliberately, but let’s not jump to conclusions.

However, if she emulates Prince and names herself with a symbol so that you have to call her “The evangelist formerly known as Faytene”, I’m just going to throw up my hands and say “I just don’t know!”

2. If you recall the posts about The Cry Hollywood earlier this year and last, GOD TV will be airing a 2 or 2 1/2 hours highlights package of the event starting on Monday and being rebroadcast at various times through Thursday, mostly in the evenings. It will be broadcast on the United States feed and will be online on their website. The schedule is here if you are interested.

3. The Cry Toronto is set for July 28 at Massey Hall in Toronto. And you’ll need a ticket to get in, as organizers expect to fill the venue, which would be a good way to screen out people, if you were inclined that way.

4. Faytene Insert-last-name-here ( ) did have something thoughful as a Facebook status a few days ago. It reads:
