24 reasons to love Streisand - A birthday countdown

24 → her birthday & lucky number

#22. This duet and this quote

“David [Begelman] took me to see [Barbra Streisand] in Las Vegas, when she was just starting out. I was curious, because I never heard so many people complaining… ‘God, is she ugly!’ Everybody was saying, ‘My God, I never saw anyone so ugly…’ And they said it with such force… And they said it so often that I thought, this girl must have something! And we were sitting at the table, and David was very proud the agency had just signed Bob Goulet. They had a choice of signing either Bob or Barbra, and David kept saying ‘Wait’ll you see this ugly, ugly girl!’

And Barbra came out. And after her first number I looked at David and said ‘Well, you blew it…’”

whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal

"I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward."
