Song of the Day: 'Galaxy Glue' by Linda November


Early in my relationship with Damian we discovered that we were both obsessed with "The Incredible Shrinking Woman." (It's hard to get through a day without a call for "Concepcion"!) I was hypnotized by Lily Tomlin's big little performance -- as a teen, I had my photo taken on a giant prop from the film at Universal Studios in 1981 -- and Joel Schumacher's pastel color palette whereas a single-digit-age Damian had a crush on Charles Grodin. But whatever the case may be, it was still a pleasant surprise when I heard my guy blasting "Galaxy Glue" in the living room yesterday!

Hi, I've been reading your blog for a few months and love it. We have a ton in common taste wise. I was also obsessed with "The Incredible Shrinking Woman." I remember well the days when HBO used to play the same movies over and over and this was one of them. The scene I love the most is when she's in the dollhouse trying to record herself on the giant tape recorder. This movie made me a life-long Lily Tomlin.

Classic! Yep, we used to watch that on HBO all the time! And whenever I'm with my siblings, eventually one of us yells "Concepcion!"
