Thirty years of Desperately Seeking Susan, one of the best things (not just movies) Madonna's ever done. Carrie Rickey's oral history is great, and I'm honored to be in that company.
In sad, related news, that huge NYC explosion of a landmarked building at 121 Second Ave. was not only the one-time (150+ years ago) mayoral residence, but was close enough to the former location of Love Saves the Day that the latter was torn down. Love Saves the Day, at 119 Second Ave., was the scene of the retro clothing store in which Madonna's “Susan&rduo; character swapped her iconic jacket for a pair of studded boots.
Sadly, it now appears two people are missing following that earth-shaking explosion.
