In Grey Gardens
Celebrating Audrey's birthday in Grey Gardens style. Jacob went as David Maysles, the awesome boom-mic carrying necktie-clad brother in the filmmaking Maysles brother duo. There were also at least 20 Little Edie's, 2 Big Edies and 1 Marble Faun (i.e. Jerry Torre, the gardener), who we have learned -- since the movie -- has become an amateur marble sculptor. Stranger nights have rarely been had.
In other news of excellence and oddity: at the Girl Walk // All Day premiere in December, we noticed a nun dancing in the crowd. It turned out her name is Sister Silvia, and the film inspired her to go dancing by the river at sunset. This video is probably my favorite thing on the internet in 2012 thus far.
