My FAVORITE teacher ever has become my adviser. Ive suffered my current, terrible one for two years and now I got my request for a new one approved. shes a great person and a dead head herself. She even owns a parrot name pigpen who sings some GD lyrics if hes in a talky mood. BTW, thanks sooo much for that video gratefulmom. That made me laugh my ass off. My friends loved it. Also, Coral got into his new school, and is doing great. he wil have to make up a week of school during the summer, but hes cool with that. He says thatnks for all the well wishes and believes they helped.
Check this out......
Hehe that made my day! LOL!!
I never understood why graduations were supposed to be such happy occasions. I knew damn well my college graduation meant leaving half the people I loved, never to see them again, and I was not in a celebratory mood.
I will forever love Harry Reasoner (despite the Hippie Temptation) because the following year, at my eventually-to-be-ex's graduation, he was the speaker. And he said, you know, don't believe all that crap about graduations being a joyous occasion. The best years of your life are ending and the real crap is about to start. Well, he used slightly different words, but his meaning was unmistakable.
I've always wondered if something similar was going on in the heads of the Acid Test Graduation participants. I suspect they knew it was a crock too.
tonight we had a huge ceremony. all the seniors leave tommorow, and we had the moving up ceremony. So many friends are graduating who ill never see again. all my international friends. Lots of great speeches. Such a bitter sweet night for many of us.
Sydney Pollack passed away on May 26.
a hell of a nice guy, really down to earth. I met him once at a party I crashed on the upper east side round about the time just before or just after Tootsie came out. We talked for a long while, mostly about gangster stuff and the yakuza, and when I held up an extra ticket for the next night's show at MSG, and said "dude, you ever been to a Grateful Dead concert?" and this, I will never forget, he looked at me for like a full minute, and he said: "The Grateful Dead? those people never bathe"
RIP, Syd, may the 4 winds blow you safely home.
(lest this gets burried in the now locked thread, and since he was a nice guy, totally un-pretentious, and he made some pretty cool films, I am re-posting this here)
