I never cared much about meeting Gregg Araki until 2006. Mysterious Skin blew me away. Did you get the chance to meet him?

Oh, never mind. You link right to it. My bad.

Buscemi will always be a hero of mine for the lovely, tender, pitch-perfect performance he turned in for "Ghost World."

It's hard to believe that the young Turk who appeared in "Parting Glances" is now appearing on talk shows (most recently The Henry Rollins Show on IFC) talking about his grown kid being in a band. Time marches on.

As for his looks, it happens sometimes to people who aren't classically handsome or pretty when they're young to earn a certain je ne sais quoi with age. Some of that comes from success and wisdom, I imagine.

Couldn't agree with you more, Bauhaus. The woman who spoke with Buscemi about firefighting actually used the phrase "sex on a stick" (!). Can't say I've ever heard that one applied to Buscemi before.

I'm confused - both you and Steve make it sound like he made Living in Oblivion instead of Tom DiCillo.

I meant "made" as in "worked on" or "worked together with." Buscemi is big on collaborative directors like DiCillo (who also directed Delirious), John Cassavetes, and Robert Altman, with whom he worked a couple of times. He had nothing but praise for all three.

Kathy, check out the low-budget "Songs for Cassevetes."

I heard a lot of positive comments from people who talked to Mr. Buscemi in person at SIFF parties.

Dear Op,

Do me a favor and restrict your masturbating to private places.
