Me in my first month(s?) the first time I wore a dress (for my Baptism) 1942, and in a mid-finger-popping (which I no longer can do) portrait by the great rock'n'roll photographer (and dear friend) Lynn Goldsmith in the winter of 1981-'82 (my cold weather outfit of two button shirts under a custom leather (gift from my second wife, Penelope Milford, while she was making a movie in Italy)). Ah, life.
[PS: 2 of my favorite books]

woke up a week before my 80th birthday with the first decades of an eight decade list of movies that impacted my life (and not always positively) and finished it the day before:

So when I met Neuwirth in person in New York around 1980 I was predisposed to not like him. But after I moved to LA in '82, I got to know him pretty well and found him still capable of devastating sarcasm, but also of unconditional friendship. I learned he was a unique singer/songwriter and painter, and always there when I went to him for any kind of help. I came to rely on him when I got myself into my usual predicaments. His advice was always sound and specific. I know he will be sorely missed by many. Condolences to all who knew and dug him.

Carrie White was a Hollywood hairdresser (actually Beverly Hills mostly) known for styling the hair of the famous and celebrated (as well as the not so famous and celebrated, like me, though she just gave me a trim now and then for auditions) and lived the kind of thrill ride life that you'd want to read in a book (which you can, her bestseller memoir UPPER CUT) or watch in a movie (which we'll all be able to do when the movie based on the memoir, now in development comes out), or be a part of, which I fortunately was for almost forty years. Just one of the many lucky ones to count her as a dear and endearing and enduring and entertaining and encouraging friend. Condolences to all who knew and loved her.
