Today is John Lurie’s birthday!!!
John Lurie is the founder of the ’90s jazz-by-way-of-whatever-they want band the Lounge Lizards and actor who starred in Jim Jarmusch’s Permanent Vacation, Stranger Than Paradise and Down By Law as well as being the mastermind behind one of my favorite TV shows ever, FISHING WITH JOHN.
You can expect write-ups from me about all of those things in the future, but in the mean time you should check out Mr. Lurie’s art work (http://johnlurieart.com/).
I would love to have a show with him…our styles are very similar. (No, I’m not kidding.)
