Happy Birthday, Bitch! – Macaulay Culkin

Macaulay Culkin is 28 today. He’s sort of an actor /bad novelist who probably lives off his Home Alone money. I dig Macaulay, not because he was in Home Alone because those movies were offal and John Hughes’ downfall. But mainly because he played Michael Alig in Party Monster, which is one of my favorite bad movies of all time. He was so joyously queer, and trying to be edgy and running around in hot pants with brains affixed to his head and delighting in his evil Club Kid persona.

To be honest, half the battle was fought by Seth Green who played a mean James St. James. But Mac really gave it his all. You could kinda sense that he had been through a lot in his life – child star, way too many siblings, fucked up parents – and just wanted to his freak flag fly.

The real Michael Alig should get down on his knees and kiss Mac’s feet when he gets out of jail for making him into an almost lovable Disney character. Well, a Disney character who did a lot of heroin.

Money! Success! Fame! Glamour!
