As you may have seen in today's "What's Going On?" post, Molly Ringwald is performing at 54 Below tonight (1/15, and Wednesday 1/16). She'll be doing a cabaret set of standards, and perhaps a cover of Simple Minds' "Don't You (Forget About Me)" from The Breakfast Club which she does on her forthcoming album Except ... Sometimes that will be out in April. Tickets are available for both night.

In other John Hughes-related news, this Saturday (1/19) at Union Hall it's the debut of "Novelization: A Reading Series Based on the Original Motion Picture" which features dramatic readings of "classic" movie novelizations. For the premiere event, they're doing the novelization of Pretty in Pink and features Frank "TV's Frank" Conniff, Heidi Vanderlee (The Chris Gethard Show), Todd Hanson (The Onion) and more doing the reading, plus musical guest Hand Job Academy. Novelizations of Grease, Grease 2, Rambo IV and others will also be featured. The Pretty in Pink novelization is notable in that it came out before the movie and was based on Hughes' original version of the screenplay...where [SPOILER] Duckie got the girl. Tickets are $5 and still available. More info here.

Bowie is unpredictable. He'll do things just because he wants to. A cash grab is possible, but don't be surprised if he does snall things

I was saw her perform in Cabaret on Broadway. It wasn't good. Seeing her fat ass dancing on a chair almost ruined it. Raul Esparza was amazing.

"The Pretty in Pink novelization is notable in that it came out before the movie"

The Psychedelic Furs song also precedes the movies.

Doing a cover of Don't you forget about me is pretty cool as that was her most famous moment.

5:59PM is probably 350 pounds.

what's this about pounds? 80's? They say that if you were in the 80's you wouldn't remember them.

I love all the 80s movies she's done, but my all time favorite is Sixteen Candles.
