Things I Realized While Watching "Janis: Little Girl Blue" on Netflix
- •Janis Joplin, while before my time, has always fascinated me a little—but I had no idea what an immense talent she had.
- •Apparently I am the type of person who, just as I sat in the theater hoping the Titanic would miss that iceberg, watched this hoping Janis would defeat her drug demons and live past twenty seven.
- •The word "documentary" used to make me cringe and flash back to sleeping in a classroom, but the entire genre has grown to the point it's some of the most riveting entertainment anywhere.
- •Some people were born to break our hearts. Rest in peace, Janis.
