Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

Professor Abraham Van Helsing: Civilization,
and syphilization, have advanced together.

One of the foundational films of my film-loving life, Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula, premiered in Los Angeles on this day thirty years ago. Which means that this is also give or take the thirty year anniversary of me kicking a hole in my mother's bedroom door because she refused to let me go see the R-rated movie I so desperately wanted to see. Ahhh memories!

Funny enough I only this year saw the movie for the first time on the big screen when the Paris Theater here in NYC played it -- it was as spectacular as expected, and the next time I'm home I might have to kick a hole in my mother's bedroom door again for keeping me from the experience for thirty full fucking years. What a movie!

Jason, what was your reaction to the scene where Keanu's hair turned white?

I celebrated by thinking about how Winona financed the film and got Richard E Grant a part and then watched more Interview with the Vampire. I don't want to share Sam Reid with everyone but I also want him to have all the roles...I better suck it up.

I saw it just after my 18th on the same day I donated blood for the first time 🤣🦇 It made a big impression and was a worthy Oscar winner for costumes.
