Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Candy Darling: Dear Diary, I try to get what I want, whenever it's possible. I have always found that socially unacceptable people make the best lovers because they are more sensitive. I can be happy and fulfilled. I will never doubt it. I can not afford to. Each thought, each movement turned into a great moving force. Love Candy. 

Today is the 62nd birthday of the wonderful director Mary Harron; my first thought (always my first thought) was to celebrate using American Psycho...

... but then I realized she's got several great movies under her belt, let's spread the wealth. Truth be told I haven't seen I Shot Andy Warhol since it came out in 1996 which good grief, I've got to rectify that immediately - I doubt I knew then one-tenth of what I know about Andy Warhol now, and I'm dying to see how it plays from a more knowledgeable perspective. I mean I'm sure ISAW was the first time I'd even heard of Candy Darling or Paul Morrissey, can you imagine? Anyone seen it lately?
