The idea of 1950's radioactive flatware has got me feeling all TOTN:Sci-Fri. In that vein, Read all about Tycho Brahe.
I heard Nicole Kidman is going to play Diane Arbus... I think that Diane sums this up best, in saying, "Most people go through life dreading they'll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They've already passed their test in life. They're aristocrats." How does Nicole Kidman fit into a worldview like that?
Speaking of the aristocracy, I'm suprised that they haven't gotten Leo DiCaprio to do The Life of Johnny Eck... or Andrew Lloyd Webber, to... up the pathos a lil'. The real heartbereaker of Eck's life, outside of the fact that he was essentially born without a body, is that he and his brother were robbed, Eck was severely beaten, and his brother was killed. He never overcame the bitterness that stirred within him from that day forth, and consequently died miserable... Hail! Hail!
Do yourself a favor, and watch Freaks. It not only gave the Ramones one of their most memorable lyrics, but it's worth watching for the scene in which Prince Randian, the Caterpillar Man rolls & lights a cigarette with a match from a box... all with his lips.
I used to Jack White... Maybe it's because we're the same age, and both from Detroit... excepting that he's a rock star that marries supermodels in the Amazon, and I'm a big fat loser, it's like something out of Conrad. Make sure to watch the video of Jack getting mad at balloons.
