Marry Me, Fairuza


I've been bed-ridden with the flu most of this week, so I've been rewatching a lot of movies. One of which was The Craft, starring Jake's muse. For my money though, the killer performance in this film is by Fairuza Balk, who made her film debut as Dorothy in Return to Oz. 

 Fairuza was also great in American History X and then Hollywood seemed to have no idea what to do with her. Which is one of the many, many things that depresses me about Hollywood.

PS: She loves The Cocteau Twins. Marry me, Fairuza.

Atum Kadmon & The 40 Year Old Virgin, part 1

In Ancient Rome, the priests of the mother goddess Cybele called the Galloi would ritually castrate themselves in honor of her consort, the castrated god Attis. The Galloi were sort of a combination of glam rocker and trannie whore, earning their pay as street musicians or temple prostitutes.

My Sweet Lady Jane

The missus and I attended the ArtExpo at the Jacob Javits Center on Sunday. Also attending was one of the foremost Sirens of my youth- Jane Seymour.
