Loves Liza Minnelli, Dudley Moore, The Beatles, The Who, The Monkees, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Dean Martin, etc. Definitely born in the wrong era.

29 year old girl from the east bay area in California (read as: nowhere on the map) and also loves all things craft-wise. Is an avid cross-stitcher, knitter, crocheter, photographer, writer, loves drawing, and generally anything that involves making something pretty.

Also loves nostalgia. Both from the 60's/70's, from her own childhood in the 80's/90's, and some even older stuff. You've been warned.

“A Star is Born” - Dressing Room Scene, with Judy Garland

“What is it that makes him want to destroy himself? You’ve known him longer than anyone else. Tell me what it is. Please, I don’t care. Just tell me….Well I….I’ve got to find the answer. You don’t know what it’s like to watch somebody you love just crumble away bit by bit and day by day in front of your eyes! And stand there, helpless. Love isn’t enough. I thought it was. I thought I was the answer for Norman. But love isn’t enough for him. And I’m afraid of what’s beginning to happen, within me, because…sometimes I hate him. I hate his promises to stop and then the watching and waiting to see it begin again. I hate to go home to him at night and listen to his lies. Well, my heart goes out to him because he tries, he does try. But I hate him for failing! I hate me, too! I hate me! Cause I’ve failed, too! I have. I don’t know what’s going to happen to us, Oliver. No matter how much you love somebody, how do you live out the days? How?”

So heartbreaking to watch, because those were most probably Judy’s real emotions coming out onto the screen.

4. Judy Garland as Cricket West. (Thoroughbreds Don’t Cry, 1937)

I’d been in vaudeville for several years with my family, but never had I been asked to read a line. I was frightened to death until Mickey, the veteran, put his arm around me and said, “Honey, you’ve got to believe in what you’re saying and doing — that’s the whole secret of acting. And when you sing, make like you mean it and live the part.”
