"Throw the Nazi buzzard overboard!" - one lifeboat passenger to another after they discover a man they have just rescued from the icy Atlantic is a fucking German in Hitchcock's "Lifeboat."
I got to see a movie tonight I liked. (It was not "Lifeboat.") This hardly ever happens. Sister Sal got me "New York Doll" for Christmas. Sonja and I watched it instead of watching hockey. Even if you are not a New York Dolls fan, even if you do not like rock 'n' roll, you ought to see this film. It will make you feel good/bad the way "The Wrestler" does.
I got the Dolls right away when I saw them on an old tv rock show or two but I did not buy their records until I was much older. A friend, who happened to be a wrestler, had their 8-tracks. That was all the Dolls I needed. The opening notes of their song "Vietnamese Baby" still make me want to shoot dope every time I hear them. Is that rock 'n' roll, motherfuckers? Oh, yeah...
Now that it is 2009 what I would like to see is a transvestite doped up country band. Just as long as the transvestite doped up country band is not fronted by Willie Nelson.
