you of all people know how i feel
about Freddie Mercury. as much as
you like Tom Waits, that's how i

him right now - a cd that was put
together by Brian May called "lover
of life, singer of songs"; got it at phonoluxe. it was put out after
his death. however, i just can't

in his movies and such. they do look similar but just don't know if
i could see sasha cohen playing
freddie without seeing borat instead. anyway - that's my opinion. love - mom
