Olymbia Buffy?[edit]

Who is Olymbia Buffy? "Teresa's Godmother was Olymbia Buffy." Who is that? I originally thought it was graffiti but from what I can tell, the same person who wrote about her demise is the same one who wrote this cryptic message. Friendlyliz 05:56, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Teresa Brewer - Gold Country album.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Teresa Brewer - Gold Country album.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Betacommandbot is an idiot and should be unplugged or reprogrammed. Likewise his programmer. Fair use rationales are there and valid, but may not use the right "box" or "template" for you infants. There are too many immature boys working behind wikipedia. I know you'll next say I should be banned for being frankly critical.

Pop singer?[edit]

Calling someone who had her primes in the 50's a "pop singer" seems a bit off to me. Her style wasn't rock'n'roll. "Pop music" might refer to pretty much any popular music from rock'n'roll and later - sometimes, but seldom, also earlier styles. How about calling her a singer of popular music? (I do notice that the article cited as a reference uses "pop" as short for "popular music", but I still find it a bit odd. OTOH I am not a native English speaker.) (talk) 21:45, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

You're wrong. Pop was before rock and roll. Early 60s soft R&R can be called pop-rock.

True that today Pop might be used for a lot of bizarre music, but that doesn't change this point. (And are you proud of me for not writing "your wrong"?)George Slivinsky (talk) 13:15, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Hair color[edit]

Let's get over this. Redhead redhead redhead. I just finished reading an article saying that she had natural blond hair and she died it red for the movie. It looked blond in the 1970s. Looked brown earlier. Who can give a knowledgeable answer. George Slivinsky (talk) 00:51, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
It looks like in her early years her hair was natural brown, and later natural blond. George Slivinsky (talk) 16:02, 16 July 2015 (UTC)


The existing picture from the preview is good. But in general it is considered fair use to use frames from movies (without permission). Would the site support this?George Slivinsky (talk) 22:59, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes. The site does support this. There are numerous examples of articles of both living and deceased movie stars and singers that use screenshots from old movie trailers. The Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn articles are two such examples.

And here are two links with the licensing information concerning trailers:

Specifics on singles and albums[edit]

I'd ask someone who understands the coding to incorporate some data. Could you specify the label companies of the singles, maybe using sections? She had one 10" album on London which contained: Old Man Mose, I Beeped when I shoulda bopped, Jazz me blues, Copenhagen, Grizzly Bear, When the train came in, A Man wrote a song, You've got me crying again. All these were on singles but not all listed here.
See info at, Teresa Brewer Center. SingSS was her first Coral single. Do you want to include only original albums or later reissues? Maybe you don't need the phrase "non-album track", but just list albums where needed and differentiate both sides. George Slivinsky (talk) 06:35, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
