It's been a busy week, so sorry for the sparsity of meaningful content here. I promise to have some click-worthy material up soonest. In the interim, please bear with me.
That all said, I was chatting yesterday with my co-worker Drew, and we started ruminating on what an under-praised gem "Desperately Seeking Susan" is. That's right, you read that right. Sure, it's a Madonna movie (if not the the first Madonna movie), but it's actually pretty damn great (and I'll take it over "Evita" or "Truth or Dare" or "Who's That Girl?" or "Swept Away" or "Dick Tracy" or .....). If only she'd given up after this film!
Disregarding the fact that it stars the material girl, "Desperately Seeking Susan" features a host of coolster cameos, notably Richard Hell, Arto Lindsay, Anne Magnuson, Steven Wright and Rockets Redglare. I'm sure I'm omitting someone important there. There are also some tantalizingly fleeting shots of the East Village of yore and the interiors of Danceteria. In a way, the film serves as an excellent love letter to NYC. If you haven't watched it in a while, give it a glimpse, do.
Herewith a video from an instrumental on its soundtrack which will probably ring a bell, fitting titled "New York City By Day."
