Still, better late than never. Here’s a delightful musical number from The Kids in the Hall‘s movie Brain Candy.
My friends Jaime and Terry took me to see that when I was going through chemo and not getting out of the house much. This was about the stage where the little hair I had left was as thin as a baby’s and you could see the shape of my skull right through it. Let me tell you, not everyone can carry off the Sinead O’Connor look. Natalie Portman, with her beautifully rounded cranium, is a lucky bitch: my head looked far too much like Machu Picchu for my liking.
In any case, I had never seen my friends squirm as much as they did at this movie, which they did in unison, at the precise moment that Cancer Boy came on. I swear to god, they are each over six feet tall but within seconds they could easily have fit in a shoebox, they shrank so much. Also assumed the fetal position. I think their testicles are still retracted.
I never laughed so hard!
So here’s another snippet of the movie, for all the Friends of Dorothy on the ol’ raincoaster blog.
