Dear Diary, my teen-angst bullshit now has a body count.
All or nothing at all
If it’s love, there is no in between
Why begin then cry for something that might have been?
No, I’d rather have nothing at all

You’re missing out.
Do yourself a favor and find a copy of that concert. You won’t regret it.
53 years ago today, Judy Garland made history at Carnegie Hall.
The April 23, 1961 concert has been called “the greatest night in show business history”.
The double album recorded that night remains one of the most successful albums in history, spending 73 weeks on the Billboard Chart (13 weeks at #1) and it’s never been out of print.
"Judy at Carnegie Hall" won 4 Grammy Awards, and was the first live album, and the first album by a female performer to win the Grammy for Album of the Year.

I say The Way We Were is my all-time favorite film but then I watch Yentl and I am convinced it’s the best thing ever made. It’s all there: Judaism, feminism, the greatest music, naked Mandy Patinkin, a love triangle, superb direction, amazing cinematography… and it’s all Barbra; her ideas, brains, beauty and talent.
Every time I watch Yentl, I’m just so proud of Barbra’s brilliance, so it’s a very important film for me (as a fan) for all it represents for Barbra both professionally and personally."The first woman in the history of motion pictures to produce, direct, write and perform a film’s title role."
sometimes i get so caught up in Old Hollywood i actually forget to breathe.

I wonder what ever happened to that Stay All Night documentary on Judy at Carnegie Hall that was supposed to happen a while ago??
I’m listening to Judy at Carnegie Hall right now in honor of it’s anniversary. It’s still my favorite album of all time.
