A lot of students have passed through these halls
New Beverly Cinema
My favorite theater in LA.
"The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you’re uncool."
- Lester Bangs, Almost Famous
Philip Seymour Hoffman's role in Almost Famous as rock journalist Lester Bangs is one we didn’t cover in today’s interviews, but we know it’s a fan favorite.
I think about this scene at least once a week.
This scene, and the way he played it, were instrumental in shaping a lot of things I believe as an adult, and this message is something I passed along to my children.
This is how I will always remember Philip Seymour Hoffman. RIP.
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
