My voyage of self discovery has taken a few odd detours over the last few days. My spirit/soul/psyche is tired so I have decided to avail myself of the finest dreck Netflix has to offer.
Of course, the first thing that sprang to mind and to queue is Valley Of The Dolls. I am shocked and amazed to discover that I actually recognize the theme song. I am mildly pleased to discover that Andre Previn wrote said theme song.
I have no idea why I this delights me so much.
I don’t think I’ve seen the movie before, although I have read the book an embarrassing number of times. I also read the Jacqueline Sussann novel that is clearly the story of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. If I wanted to make an evening of it, I could also watch the biopic that features Bette Midler as Sussann. And then I could watch Katie Holmes play Jackie and then watch Patrick Dempsey play the young Jack.
But then my head just might explode.
So I guess it’s Valley of the Dolls.
There are a lot of things I want to do and many things I want to write. I have a small business plan in play that centers around my ability and inclination to write, so it would just make sense that I sit down and do it.
I am a bit antsy and unfocused these days.
