The idiot who decided to watch The Exorcism of Emily Rose while alone. I'm afraid to move.
It came to my mind that I saw Exorcist 2 with Richard Burton long time ago. While the movie is not quite good, I honestly don't think it deserves such a pathetic rating. It's slow, more of a drama to me and yes, there are really stupid parts in it. But not to be rated 3,7/10. I actually prefered other movies about exorcism rather than the original movie. I understand it was shocking back then, but there is a difference between scary and obscene. Yelling 'Fuck me' or whatever in the crucifix scene, doesn't do it for me. #theexorcist

Happy 100th birthday, Ella Fitzgerald!
"I've worked with a lot of great singers, and a lot of them are divas, but with Ella, I'll never forget how she just came out dressed very modestly and sat down on a stool in front of the band. She just matter-of-factly ran down the program with great professionalism, said hello to some of the guys in the band, and that was it." - Mr. Schoenberg, a musician and founding director of The National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
