Bea Arthur was always a major favorite of mine. Even pre-Maude. Here's a GG story... On Sept 11, 2001, the police sealed off access to my house after dark, so I had to stay at a friend's house in the West Village. Unable to sleep, I switched on the TV and was treated to endless re-runs of the crumbling towers. The same shots over and over. On over 200 channels. Finally, one tiny station somewhere began to show Golden Girls episodes back-to-back, all through the night. The Golden Girls saved...

The sexual edge sums up the major difference between Jeannie and Bewitched. I Dream of Jeannie had the psychedlic/free love 60s feel running through everything with Jeannie and Major Nelson basically living in sin (that is, until they got married later in the series) and Jeannie playing a thinly veiled sex slave with her cleavage and bimbo persona. She called her man "master", wore more provacative outfits and obediently retreated to her bottle when Major Nelson had had enough. Their...

I saw it today. I don't know what to think. It definitely wasn't bad, but I can't say it was good either. I thought MacAuley Culkin was irritating, if it was just Seth Green it would've been a much better movie. For those who know the story (or lived it), the only reason to see the movie was for the recreations of the club scene "back in the day", but as Z&S pointed out above those scenes are pretty much quick camera pans across a dark room with an indistinguishable glimpse at a few...

I think they would have been much better at making a fab movie had they cast more unknowns in the main role (but then the majors would not have been as interested), as Seth Green and macauly are just too...

The first show was smashing with loads of great peaks that brought the house to a roar. The venue has enough dark underground appeal to show off the performances in a suitably enhancing vibe.

I never went to Le Jardin. (some things actually were before my time) but Chi Chi and I worked with John Addison (the owner of Le Jardin and Xenon) later on. What a character! The music was so happy back then. I was listening to Larry Levan recorded at The Paradise Garage the other day and I was really surprised by how hopeful the music was. Everything was so new that anything seemed possible. (of course being 17 doesn't hurt either) When I go hear "Big Room" DJs now the music seems so dark.
