If you’re looking for a fun way to spend 16 minutes and 54 seconds, then click on the link above. It will take you to The Best Thing I Ever Done, a documentary about Di Fara’s Dom DeMarco made by Margaret Emily MacKenzie. What it lacks in length, it makes up for in substance, covering everything from the origin of the Di Fara name (a combination of the name DeMarco and that of his original partner) to DeMarco’s thoughts on the crowds (“It’s amazing. Once you open the door, no stop”) to his daughter’s observation that “fame has made his life happier.” It’s an endearing tribute, one that’s sure to warm Jeffrey Steingarten‘s soul.
