1) @mollyringwald and I run lines for the scene where I discover my father cheating on my mom, as crew members set up all around us. Despite the tough subject matter, we still managed to enjoy the work.
2) Hair and makeup do final "death makeup" touch-ups before filming the scene where our parents discover our bodies in the garage. Probably the grimmest, most intense day of the entire shoot. Absolutely brutal.
3) The dreaded scene 144 - the actual suicide - from the final orange page revisions. When I read the script, I knew this was the scene that I'd have to nail in order for my entire performance to work. If I screwed this up, I'd probably lose the audience.
Lots of pressure, for sure.
4) Molly and I did a promotional appearance at Sound Warehouse to promote the film and also to get free swag. I got something called a compact disc player, which no one had ever seen before. The best part was that the compact discs were indestructible and never scratched!🤣🤣 My first CD was Synchronicity by the Police, with a bonus track called Murder By Numbers! Isn't technology great? Hey, maybe you can meet the GoGos, too! C'mon down, y'all!
5) Me in Fire Island just before the shoot in July '84. Purple Rain in the theaters, the Boss and Madonna atop the charts, and my Jim Morrison hairdo working overtime.... but still falling short. Sigh.
So the one and only Paul Donzella / @donzella_ltd is moving north after 22 years at 17 White Street, which was the former studio of #JimDine . He’s sifting through his immense archives (see image) and having an incredible moving sale. Go visit him and buy a #GioPonti ! or just soak up the last days in his beautiful space. Mid-April be sure to catch him at 200 Lex / @nydc. Love you Paul ❤️ / @pdon2 ~ thanks for all the style and beauty all these years, and for making White Street so cool and classy. 🙏 So excited for the next chapter! 🙌❤️👏 #pauldonzella#donzella#17whitestreet ・・・ #Repost@donzella_ltd ・・・
Sifting through our library and came across this fantastic little catalog of a ceramics show. #guidettecarbonell#galeriedowntown#1985 . #birdsculptures
Billy Bragg - Life's A Riot / Between The Wars (1985). Some of my favourite Billy Bragg songs are his early ones. That's probably why I like this record so much. It collects his debut LP from 1983, with one of his best EPs, Between The Wars, from 1985. There's a lot of classic tracks here, To Have And Have Not, Which Side Are You On and A New England, among others. I probably should have saved this for a May Day soundtrack. .
SUMMER OF ’85

Roland Juno 106S (1985)
[SOUND ON!] Synth enthusiasts: You’ve probably all heard of the legendary Juno 106, but have you ever heard of the 106S? Both models are almost identical, the 106S however has built-in stereo speakers. Enjoy this vintage commercial from 1985. 🎹

HAPPY 34 YEARS today to Friday The 13th Part 5 A New Beginning. I really adore this underrated 80's slasher. 😁 It's super fun, so sleazy, funny and entertaining. I love it. Any fans of Part 5? Good day. ❤
On this day in 1985, Jason Voorhees was irrefutably dead—living only in the traumatic dreams of Tommy Jarvis—and yet FRIDAY THE 13TH V: A NEW BEGINNING fills its cinematic morgue with an impressive body count of 22 corpses. In what was once the most maligned film in the franchise—and in some ways the logic behind its existence is not unlike that of Tommy Lee Wallace's HALLOWEEN III—we are given a deranged inquiry into a fresh approach: what the Friday franchise would look like “without” Jason Voorhees. Coupling Jarvis' haunting visions with Roy's copycat-killer guise arguably results in the film essentially delivering two incarnations of Jason...though we aren’t sure exactly where Roy procured that impressively accurate latex Voorhees hood. The murder spree of mammoth proportions is the result of a lethal candy-bar misunderstanding, and many of those aforementioned 22 victims are purely stock characters and included only for the purposes of elevating the blood-loss...but we digress. Despite the shame and reluctance that many of the cast members have about their participation in the film (in fact, according to Peter M. Bracke's CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES, a large percentage of the cast had no idea that the film they had auditioned for and subsequently landed was even a FRIDAY film), PART V has since elevated both its favor and cult status within the franchise; renaissance may be too strong a word, but this one seems more popular now than it’s ever been. True, the possibility of Tommy Jarvis internalizing his Jason-inspired rage and hence "becoming" the character as implied by the film's closing shot sadly never came to fruition...but FRIDAY V did allow for a highly celebrated addition to the canon which hearkened back to the horror genre's hallowed and harrowing past: an eventual undead, reanimated Jason Voorhees. ⚰️⚡️ So if nudity and corpses are what you're craving, Fiends, then this is the Friday film for you. Grab your garden shears and a picnic blanket and spend an afternoon with the one you love...because today is a great day for a new beginning. 💀✂️
