Yes, "The Matchmaker" is still one of my favorite movies -- you wanna make something out of it?

I don't know which delights me more -- evidence of Janaene Garofalo being her deliciously honest self or the photo that shows her back amongst the brunettes.

I'm going to go with BOTH.

From an exchange between Garofalo and Jennifer Tilly (who I always unforgiveably seem to forget is so funny and smart):

Tilly said[,] "I think among the networks, it's like, 'Women like to watch women while they're at home washing the laundry, with the Tide that gets laundry whiter than white. And at night people want to watch edgy guys.' Didn't you experience that, Janaene, when you were at Saturday Night Live? That there was a tremendous sort of... not misogyny, but a sort of boy's club?"

[Garofalo answers]..."[w]hen I was there, the show was just awful. It didn't matter if you were a guy, girl, transvestite, transgender — whoever you were, that show just sucked it that year. ... I personally was awful. I failed miserably, plus I was a horrible drunk at the time; that's all my fault."

"I just assumed the man was keeping you down," Tilly said.

"The man and a woman," Garofalo said. "Me, myself, as a woman, kept me down."

Way to own your life, Janaene!
Ooh, and I love her tights.
