Clowns & Jokers

Stuck in the middle.... Left, right, centre. It's a mess out there.

L.A Lady

I love this song.

And this scene ...in this film (and yes ...Billy Crudup). Spoke to my sister this week who is having a miserable time over in LA at the moment . I really feel for her and miss her like mad. Especially at this time of year. I kind of imagine her feeling about as miserable as Bill in this scene! But I HOPE NOT. Hope this cheers her up.

Elton John songs remind me of horsing about with her around about the time my dad was busy with fantastic pieces of hi fi, switching up the volume full whack for as long as possible to listen to the incredicle bassline in the various tracks from Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. A trick we loved - particularly my sis - who is now something of an expert on the decks.

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band...Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man...Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand....And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand...Jesus freaks out in the street...Handing tickets out for God ...Turning back she just laughs...The boulevard is not that bad...Piano man he makes his stand..In the auditorium...Looking on she sings the songs...The words she knows, the tune she hums...But oh how it feels so real...Lying here with no one near...Only you and you can't hear me...When I say softly, slowly...Hold me closer tiny dancer..Count the headlights on the highway...Lay me down in sheets of linen..you had a busy day today...Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band...Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man...Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand.. And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand..

Poetry. And check out Elton on Top of the Pops singing this superb track waaaay back in 1971 below. LOL.

I took my son to see "Almost Famous" when he was 15, and I think I enjoyed it more than he did.

I really loved it. Patrick Fugit was terrific. Great script. And Crudup suffering the fear is very very funny. Hoffman plays Hoffman!

Alison,

I actually know someone who taught Philip Seymour Hoffman in high school, and he says the same thing you said.
