Containing Multitudes Since 2004
And here we have Johnny, in full-goombah regalia, a noted peripheral tough guy, unknowingly arriving in Samarra. I kinda miss the highwaisted look in gentlemen's trousers, though.
Oh, I wouldn't say that. It worked out pretty well for Lana and her daughter by getting rid of that hired killer.
Wow. Understatement of the day. But it got me interested to find out what happened.Nice play.
sad story. AWESOME shades!
Of the three, he wasn't the toughest, but he didn't know that yet.
wheres that Connery fella!?
ESCORT Johnny Stompanato - I love that
Connery just earned my reshpect.
Lines from the poem "The Death of Johnny Stompanato" from Love Poems by Rene Ricard:So you submit to that mild form of boxing called love.Then, happy he's earned his keepHe picks your pocket, drives off in your blonde LincolnAnd you pass out.There's only one definite thing about moviesWhen you have a tight shooting schedule:They'll keep you up.They'll make you cry they'll beat youThey'll leave you, but they won't leave you aloneAnd you'll get to the studio with a headacheLooking like who did it and ran.You ask them to light the jewelry,The props, anything but your face."We'll need more work today"And tomorrow and the next day.Then the reviews come out:"No more just a beauty, this performance was dazzlingMature, and with an unexpected depth of character."I wasn't being paid for depthOr characterOr maturityI was supposed to be beautiful.I want a drink. I don't know what happened.I was young then I was old. I was paid forThen I paid. Everything seems like it happenedYesterday or so long ago it happened to someone else.I've been called a bad' woman. I don't know.I was in a bad business that does bad things to peopleHe was young to die. But so was I.He died in a movie star's white bedroom.That's better than the gutter.And I matured, as they say.I think it was him or me.I may have been part of a tragedyBut I'm not sure if the tragedyWas his death or my lifeOr just the story around usOr if I'm capable of...What's the use. It was so long ago.
Dola:That poem is incredible. Thanks.
