Jonny Stranger

One of my bestest buddies is Jonny Stranger, Austin filmmaker, actor, writer, musician, and all around artist and mensch extraordnaire. And since I've been doing all this lofty quoting -- as is only fitting of any entrant in a Pretentious Festival, I'm sure you'd agree -- I thought I'd let someone who really means something to me choose the quotes for the day:
Jonny Stranger... About me:
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell. -Antonin Artaud** I don't think you should feel about a film. You should feel about a woman, not a movie. You can't kiss a movie. -Jean-Luc Godard** Death is one of the few things that can be done as easily lying down. The difference between sex and death is that with death you can do it alone and no one is going to make fun of you. -Woody Allen** I have ten commandments. The first nine are, thou shalt not bore. The tenth is, thou shalt have right of final cut. -Billy Wilder** Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one. -Stella Adler ** Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly. -Mae West** Drama is life with the dull bits cut out. -Alfred Hitchcock**
