newyorker:

From Larissa MacFarquhar’s 2003 Profile of Quentin Tarantino:

“For every monologue he writes about an old movie or TV show, he writes one about European hamburgers or tipping waitresses or eating pork. … The love of minutiae, like the love of pop culture, is a form of nostalgia—a junk-food version of Proust’s madeleine. But, unlike madeleine-nostalgia—nostalgia for a lost world, an unrecoverable childhood—minutiae-nostalgia is nostalgia for a world that still exists, for a life you’re still living.”

Stanley Kubrick cast me from seeing If… He saw it five times. I didn’t audition, I just went to meet him, had a cup of tea, and he gave me the book and said, “Read it and call me.” And that was it. - Malcolm McDowell

This photo pre-dates the Beauty And The Beat band line-up. Original members Margot Olavarria and Elissa Bello are seen here with Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, and Belinda Carlisle. We Got The Beat is a great 5 star song, but the b-side How Much More is my all-time favorite Go-Go’s song.
