The Beauty of Being Ill

Can't do much writing when it's hard to, like, swallow and your head feels like the USC Trojan band has just marched on your neck.

So I vegged-out in bed all day and watched DVDs.

Must-See Movie: SUNSET BLVD. starring William Holden and Gloria Swanson, and directed by Billy Wilder.

A movie about a writer who becomes a gigolo to a used-to-be silent movie star.

Clever, witty writing about what people will do to get ahead in Hollywood.

Billy Wilder loved writing and writers, and would never let his actors change the words in screenplays. One of many great lines: Norma Desmond says, "I am big. It's the picture that got small." She's one of the greatest characters ever written.

Go to bed now.
