    It's like the Parents of "....The Fabulous Stains" , "GIA/Girl Interrupted", "The Warriors/Switch Blade Sisters" & "Streets of Fire" Babies!! :D <3

    Why is this so impossible to find? All the other cool/weird/culty flicks of my youth are constantly shown for free on television,or are out there on disc. Still own the soundtrack on LP and 8-Track. Note that this trailer wisely uses only songs by Ramones,XTC,Talking Heads etc.,and you never hear what "the Sleaze Sisters" actually sound like. This may be due to the fact that they can't sing,and (as one critic described it) the music sounds "like Black Sabbath in a washing machine".Come to think of it,their only song has non-PC lyrics by todays standards-- is this why it's not on TV/DVD? (all right,if you insist. It went "SPIC,NIGGER,FAGGOT,BUM- YOUR DAUGHTER IS ONE !!!")

    Man how I miss the old NYC. It was sleazy and dirty and you can say it wasn't for the meek but thats what I loved about it. Me and my friends used to cruise the deue and eat chinese food at 2 a.m. Miss those days. Now I get depressed everytime I go into the city. It's just not the same.

    I once ran into Trini Alvarado in a chinese restaurant on 57th St. in NYC. She looked pretty good so i recognized her easily. I told her right away how much i LOVED Times Square. She was very friendly & said "That was a long time ago!".
