My grandmother used to grow this vine on her farm, and I was obsessed with them as a child. Gorgeous. Anyway, I believe they are called Passionflowers. I didn't know much about them until now, though, so thanks! The more you know.

Watching Closing Ceremonies online. Kate Bush sounds blissful as ever. Swoon. And Madness! The Pet Shop Boys! George Michael! I'm basking in 80's sonic heaven, and it's magnificent.

Oh yes, and God forbid anyone live in a trailer park! You know, I really enjoyed you in Season Six. So much so, in fact, that I was rooting for you to win. But holy cow, that one little elitist sentence just managed to undo all of the support and interest I had in you with one fell swoop. Stay classy, girl. *Sigh*

Works for me like gangbusters in those situations to be sure. It was a toss-up between this song, "I've Been Loving You Too Long," and "He Stopped Loving Her Today," but I figured Toussaint doesn't get his due nearly as often as Otis and George. So in case it's not obvious, I'm a card-carrying member of the Heartbreak Society. Better to have loved and lost, my ass!

Sigh. The mental image of this event always makes me giddy. Mooney is the funniest man on the planet. Love Love Love.

Holy shit, I love your stories! One of my favorites involved you and Paul Mooney getting pulled over on the way to Richard Pryor's house. I've shared that one with a couple of friends who both floved that story as much as I did. Please never stop.

Imitation of Life, the Sirk version. The final scene just guts me every time, when Sarah Jane throws herself upon the casket and screams "Mama, I didn't mean it!" while Mahalia Jackson sings a dirge in the background. Fuck, I'm almost brought to tears just typing this. Damn.
