But the night sort of always does, doesn't it? Queen Helena Bonham Carter Of Darkness and Fingerless Gloves turned 48 today. Let's celebrate Ms. Burton with this clip, which is extraordinary for a) featuring the Pixies and b) being one of the most romantic endings to any movie in 1999. Man, who doesn't still kind of want to be Marla Singer?
This is a sad weekend. Two of my friends have passed away in the last 3 days! I think the worst part is that I was pretty close to the guy who died this morning and I can't seem to muster any proper grief. I'm sort of just in shock. Or maybe denial. I think the scariest thing is that both guys were in their 20s and seemed perfectly healthy. My own mortality is scaring me a little now, too. Does that make me selfish? :(
