All my life I've waited to see your smile again
Mr. TiVo suggested I check out Longtime Companion which was playing on Encore this week. Think he knows me? I can't believe I've never seen it before. It came out when I was in school and I was one of those insane students camping out in the back stacks of the library so that might explain it. That was early in my journey in figuring out who I am. I had a girlfriend. I was fucking around with my roommate. Not going to gay films, though. I started watching it last night and just finished. I think it was very well done. Brother, I did not see that beach scene coming at all. I bawled my eyes out. It was snot-running bawling. That movie is 16 years old, but it holds up. I can't imagine what effect it must have on people who have lost loved ones to AIDS. Have you seen it?
