My memory fails me.

July 7, 2008

Someone sent me a link to this video today.  The person framing it is Zoe Kravitz, the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet.  I was struck first of all at how much the kid looks like her mom.  Then I was struck by how vividly I remember how the birth of that kid got Bonet booted from The Cosby Show because nothing about the whole thing fit the image the show’s producers wanted to project.  

I watched it twice, trying to move faces that only seemed familiar into the category of fully recognized and then to remember the names of people I really recognize.  I have a Rolodex in my head, an old fashioned one. It spins slowly.
