Self Portrait #2

Orson Welles passed from us on this day in 1985, and we here at If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger . . . long ago vowed never to let such an occasion, however solemn, pass without some form of tribute. It is our hope that today's posts fulfill our ambitions in that regard.

An excellent sentiment.

"We drink to the sounding rafters
the walls all around us are bare,
They echo the peals of laughter,
It seems like the dead are there.

So stand by your glasses steady, boys,
This world is a world of lies,
Here's a toast to the dead already,
Hurrah for the next man to die!"
