Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

The Living End (1992)

Jon: I'm not going to fondle your crotch right now. 
Luke: Why not?
Jon: Because I'm a responsible driver.

I can hardly believe I'm about to wish director and New Queer Cinema icon Gregg Araki a happy 61st (!!!) birthday, but... here we are. Happy 61, Gregg Araki! He always felt like the (much) older gay brother I never had, the one who taught me what actual cool faggotry looked like. He was way too cool for me, but I aspired. I listened to Nine Inch Nails and dyed my hair black and watch The Doom Generation a thousand times and pretended. Well even if Araki's wading into his sixties his movies remain cool as shit if you ask me, and any youthful gays would be smart to seek them out and just, like... whatever, man.
