When a friend the same age as you suddenly dies, your first thought after the initial shock has passed is “Why the fuck was it him and not me?”  Bruno gave  much more of himself to this world.  It wasn’t fair.  RIP.

Ok, so Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is in town filming the eagerly anticipated “Stonewall”, and took a break on beautiful Mount Royal last weekend.  While he no doubt enjoys taking photos of the neo-hippies congregating around the weekly event know as the “Tam Tam Jam”, his real audience would be just behind him and to the right of this photo.  The local larping community would likely appreciate his stylistic input on their costumes, given his many years as King Henry VIII on “The Tudors”.

Scenes from “What’s New Pussycat”, 1965.  Woody Allen wrote the script and was so disappointed by the casting and eventual final product he asked to have his name withdrawn from the credits.  It influenced his decision to have complete creative control over his future productions.  Hollywood had totally lost its way by the mid 60’s, losing most of its market to television, and resorting to big screen cinematography and endless slapstick and car chases to try and bring in an audience.  It was only with the countercultural revolution of the late 60s’ with films like “The Graduate” and “Easy Rider” that the industry turned itself around (for a while).

Happy 63rd to Lynda Carter!
