Happy Birthday, Joan Didion!

“Grammar is a piano I play by ear. All I know about grammar is its power.”  —J.D.

S: Happy birthday to one of my favorite writers today! If you've never read any of Joan's nonfiction books, you should start with Slouching Towards Bethlehem, The White Album, or The Year of Magical Thinking. You won't regret it. I promise.

S: Silly second short. I went to the ladies' room during this one and was afraid I was going to fall down the stairs.

S: Creepy third film:

S: Yes, I agree. But the costumes are still horror-movie worthy.

S: I love the fourth short because it was the inspiration for Smashing Pumpkins' "Tonight, Tonight," one of my favorite songs from the 90s.

C: Me too.

C: The original (from 1902!):
