Tim Curry Official Music Video - Paradise Garage
Youtube 5laG1E0Q4b8


"Paradise Garage" was the first music video I ever saw--eighth grade, pre-MTV, at the Cove in Hermosa Beach before a midnight screening of RHPS. Be still, my junior high heart.  Pretty sure I still have the album around here somewhere.

Happy birthday, Mr. Curry!  You were the topic of so much salacious slumber party talk back in the day.  Rrrrrowwwrrrrr.

I have a thought, maybe we could get him to replace Larry Ellison.  Then we could use Java again.

Tim Curry is a worldwide treasure.

Happy 75th to him and hopefully many, many more years of him blessing us all with his talent (while not in use as much as before, we still get to give him praise for the rest of his life)

He was also the best part of the fairly dorky Three Musketeers.

Don't sell him short - he was also the best part of "The Shadow."

Saw him for the first time in either Clue on VHS or The Shadow in the theater. He did creepy so well that I found him more unnerving than the villain in The Shadow as a child. Perpetually sweaty and weird and vaguely gross in a hard to pin down way.

He has that rare exceptional quality:

He elevates any material he's in, no matter how wretched. Like Clancy Brown or Gary Cole.

Yeah.  I've seen him in some bad movies, but I've never seen him perform poorly.

"The Hunt For Red October" might be my first Tim Curry movie. It's certainly my first favorite movie.

"Well if you like borscht perhaps, but I've eaten better in an oily galley. My wife said to the waiter, 'Where did this man learn to cook? Afghanistan?' So then we went on to the Bolshoi ballet, to see this new girl Giselle. Well, you remember how beautiful she was! Well, she just married a factory manager and..."
