Happy Birthday: Teri Garr

Born: December 11, 1947 in Lakewood, Ohio, USA

Any movie I’ve ever made, the minute you walk on the set they tell you who’s the person to buy it [cocaine] from. Cher said they’re going to make two monuments to us–the two girls who lived through Hollywood and never had cocaine.

It’s different things at different times, you know? It’s like when you read a true crime story and think it’s really good, then the next book you pick up is a biography and you really like that. I don’t consider that I have to judge any of the movies I make all the time, but people are always asking me: “What’s your favorite movie?” And I never know what to say. They’re just jobs to me, really. I take the part I’m lucky enough to get and do the best I can and then — I don’t know, they’re just jobs.

The bright sparks in my family, Poetry by Louisa Adjoa Parker

Genre: Society, Life, Technology

The bright sparks in my family
by Louisa Adjoa Parker

They’ve been wired together
wrongly, fuses blow too quickly
circuits short themselves
and their systems overload;
like robots of the future
made by robots
made by robots
in a factory where instructions
left by people
on how to make a robot’s mind
have long been lost
to time and buried
under fine metallic dust.
