Breakfast Club" has been showing on free TV
a lot lately, and since I like to have the TV on
when I draw, I've probably watched it six or seven
times in the last couple of months. As an unfortunate
result of this, I've developed a crush on Ally Sheedy's
chin. Well, okay, the rest of her, too. Or, more
specifically, her chin and the rest of her in 1985.
Did you know John Hughes is making some sort of
Breakfast Club remake? Fuck him. Anyways. Sheedy's
character in the film, Allison Reynolds, is the
total proto-goth hottie (until the disastrous, but
well-intentioned Molly Ringwald makeover at the
end - sheesh! And fucking EMILIO ESTEVEZ? I think
not!) - cranky, irritable, and totally fucked up.
Sheedy's starring as a female impersonator in the
musical "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." She's in NYC.
If I got tickets I could go see the chin whenever
I wanted to. But, sadly, the chin hasn't held up
well over the ages; it looked positively skeletal
and unappealing in "High
Art." No, I want the chin of 1985, the
Captain Crunch and Pixy Stix lunch, the dandruff
on the drawing. I guess I'll just check the TV listings.
