Pondering friendship. Real friends, fake friends, books about friendship, movies w/ friends, stories about cliques who hang obsessively, loving and hating each other with the obsessiveness of total obsessives! Friends who drink bellinis w/ brunch. Port after dinner. Friends who share secrets. Friends who tell lies! Books: The Secret History, A Fortunate Age, The Likeness, The Basic Eight. Movies: Metropolitan, St. Elmo’s Fire, The Last Days of Disco, The Big Chill. Will watch/read anything that combines friends w/ mansions.
Today, two vids. Can’t choose just one:
