R.I.P Zelda Rubinstein

Sorry so late:

Who cares about Salinger and Zinn, really? I mean, an ex-girlfriend of mine once said that Catcher in the Rye is like one long run-on sentence; and who reads leftist history anyways?

I'm mourning
Zelda Rubinstein, who starred as the clairvoyant in the Speilberg produced (not directed by, as many people falsely believe) Poltergeist. Everyone knows that it was actually directed by Tobe Hooper of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame, right? I think so....

She also played the organist in Sixteen Candles.

I guess she's gone into the light.....

"Free at last..."

I couldn't find the video clip of this (i should learn to upload content), but i did find the line i wanted from one of my favorite movies of all time- Brian DePalma's Carlito's Way (better than Scarface btw; when is someone on Cribs gonna have a sweet Carlito poster?).

I thought this was an appropriate day to post Carlito quoting another great orator.

This is from the beginning of the film right after Carlito gets out of jail and is walking out of the courthouse.

Happy MLK Day!
