“It’s a goddamn beautiful day, shut up!” *

I’ve been humming this song all day, I think probably because today’s the first day that’s seemed like fall has arrived. It’s overcast, misty and foggy, very Grey Gardens weather.

Also because I’m such a total hag for Rufus Wainwright, and because it’s such a gorgeous melody. Can this man write the hell out of a song or what?

In related news, a new documentary by Albert Maysles about the making of the theatrical musical Grey Gardens, which is based on the classic 1976 Maysles Brothers documentary, opens this week at the Hamptons International Film Festival.

[I have to give it up to Mizrahi, he really pulls off the rapt-diva-leaning-on-baby-grand act pretty well. Better than I could…]

  1. The weather here sure didn’t do a good job acting like Fall today. It was wet but too warm… oh wait, that is Fall in Houston. Never mind.

  2. isn’t that pretty much just Houston, any day, any time?
