Grey Gardens HBO

Tonight is a big 'grey' night for me. I'm going to watch Grey Gardens on HBO. I've blogggggged about this before here, here and here. (No, I was not the Executive Producer nor do I have a stake in the production...but you'd think I did!) I've also been inspired to create photographs based on the GG theme. You can see some of those images here and here. I love watching the original trailer of the first movie and then the HBO one. The stills from tonight's film look so amazing. I can't wait. Goosebumps!

I'm sick, sick, SICK about this. I don't have HBO. I mistakenly believed that the film was being produced for the theaters!!!! OH MY. I'm going to have to call the satellite company and see what I can do about adding HBO.

What time?

What are you serving?

We need to have a Grey Gardens party. I'll get my scarf and my pin.

I loved it. I actually forgot that it was Drew, she was so convincing. And Jessica Lange looked exactly like big Edie. Unbelievable, it was so great.

I don't have HBO either and I am about to have a breakdown! AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, sorry, got a little nutty. I heard an interview with Drew Barrymore on NPR's FResh air that was really interesting. you can download it free from itunes.

I haven't watched it. I can't wait. It does look very sad.

I was told right after filming of the HBO film wrapped up in the fall of 2007, that I would be blown away at the last scene, where Edie sings Tea For Two at Reno Sweeny, and I was ! I had supplied the film company with the only recording in existence of Edie singing the tune, only this wasn't from her actual performance at the club, but rather her singing it just for me at one of my many visits to Grey Gardens. Drew sang it exactly, phrase for phrase as I have it on tape. Edie and I actually met that night at Reno Sweeny, and my relationship with Grey Gardens has now spanned over 3 decades.
