Brooksie


Working on the award for best director. In the meantime, happy birthday to Louise Brooks, born on this day, 1906, in Cherryvale, Kansas.

What I find most amazing about Louise Brooks is to what extent you can still see the echoes of her style in the culture if you're looking for it, especially the black helmet hairdo. The look is still a shorthand for daring and quirky and sexy and dangerous, which is stunning since she abandoned the look by 1930.

By the way, the photo is by Sylvie who offers up free "wallpaper" over at Dr. Macro's High Quality Movie Scans and other places.

Carrie also posts nice wallpaper there and I recommend checking her out ...

I was touched that you would remember, and that so many kind words would be offered.

I wish that I had aged as well as my reputation. For I'd still be alive.

Our mutual friend mister muleboy rendered a new photograph of me that pleased me, as it reflecys his inimitable style while capturing mine. His pencil drawing did not please me as much.

Once again, thanks you.
