Today is the birthday of another screen legend who is very close to my heart, Judy Garland! Judy would have been 89 years old today, and I would be remiss if I did not wish her a Happy Birthday. And just to keep it Rock related, here is a great shot of the two legends together at the Coconut Grove in 1958!

Maggie Smith reacts to seeing herself, or perhaps that should say hearing herself, in Oh! What a Lovely War.

I like drinking tea alone, and reading alone.

I like riding the bus alone, and walking home alone.

It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.

I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.

But when I see a mother with her child;

A girl with her lover;

Or a friend laughing with their best friend;

I realize that even though I like being alone

I don’t fancy being lonely.

Guys guys guys we really need to make this one thing clear

One of the main differences is that dandyism was also an intellectual movement that stressed self-improvement in order to become a living work of art; later in the 19th century, it was closely associated with the Aesthetic, Decadent, and Symbolist Movements.  Foppery never had any intellectual underpinnings, but because dandies were considered flamboyant by 19th century standards, they were often perceived as fops anyway.
