Breakfast With... Joe Gideon

Alka Seltzer, Dexedrine, eyedrops... a cigarette in the shower. You're ready to go!

Roy Scheider in All That Jazz (1979)
It's showtime, folks
This is not a healthy energy-strong breakfast. Where does Bob Fosse /Joe Gideon get all that energy? Man cannot live on sex, drugs and jazz hands alone.

okay - maybe this a kinda weird confession, but considering i have this huge crush on junkies, hypochondriacs and similar this breakfast had me horny in a very pharmaceutical way [what-thef**k-ever that means].

Off topic, as well but i think you will like this Nat. Its a heartbreaking, yet beautiful early semi-review/ write-up from the Advocate about poet Federico Lorca, the main subject of the new film Little Ashes. http://www.advocate.com/issue_story_ektid71763.asp

I really hope the hype surrounding Pattinson doesnt put people off from seeing this film. The marketing doesnt help either. This story is more about Lorca, not Dali as such. Its a beautiful story.

Well, you're quite right about the health quotient on that breakfast. In fact,

I'm strangely charmed by Rob Scheider in this film. You can't hate him.
