Goodnight, sweet prince (twofer)

Jim Carroll died Friday and apparently was just found today. I wasn't familiar with The Basketball Diaries or its movie version and never heard this song until today when I saw the post on Althouse:

Makes me think maybe I was missing something, but I don't know. Once you've read one story about talented people pissing away their talents so they can snort or shoot up, I think you've read them all. Good song, though.

As for Patrick Swayze, well, I never saw a lot of the movies he's well known for. I did see this one.
