Believing in yourself is easier when you know that you aren't the first. The trailblazers already did that nearly 80 years ago...
"The opulent lobby of the Moscow Ritz-Carlton was teeming with drunk millionaires, high on new money, and gorgeous, high-stepping young women, half peasant, half supermodel, draped on the arms of toady men – gazelles on their way to fame and fortune, paying their dues to the satyrs who would get them there."
I got goosebumps reading that as it's a lavishly accurate portrayal...and it keeps on going throughout the article. I'm not a fan of Snowdon for a litany of reasons, but I agree with his analysis of where surveillance might be headed if the apathetic populace doesn't fully understand the ramification of their laziness and complicity in giving up their privacy.
And I still have a crush on John Cusack after all these years. :)
The curious part is that they're mostly 20-something Iraqi men and many with a military or police background. It's understandable that the Finns are concerned about absorbing so many people in a time of great economic and political uncertainty throughout the EU.
"Penny Marshall, the director and actress, told me in that hilarious nasal whine: ‘‘All they like is ‘Superman,’ ‘Batman,’ those kinds of things, because it sells foreign, because it doesn’t have a lot of dialogue. Even the comedies are sophomoric. They remake things that are lying there while the people who have done it already are still alive. I’ve read and seen horrible stuff. Sometimes the people who are in charge of things are a little dumb.’’"
Even though women drive so much book and movie consumption....and creative energy.
The only thing that makes sense about that is that girls will often go to movies they don't like to accompany boys, but boys are generally expected to refuse to see girly movies.
I love Sutherland but....claiming he won't get another job if he strips the above bare is just ball-less douchery. You can't despair that change is coming too slowly if you're part of the reason it's coming too slowly. I get it, I do, but I've paid my dues thricefold and I don't forgive the boys who whinge and want it both ways. Do or do not, but don't faff about whining for change you aren't willing to risk a bit over. Bollocks.
Season 3 introduces Saga's emotional side, which heretofore hasn't been explored very well, and which makes complete sense to me, as those of us who have an extreme need for order without emotional drama tend to have a lot of emotions we reserve carefully and hide behind the screen of aloofness because we don't trust them and they are chaotic. But when we have them, and release them, they are epic.
I hope the writers have something truly game changing ahead for her as she deserves both catharsis and something more.
I vividly remember talking to my infant daughter almost non-stop when I was at home, since she never napped and it was a way to keep myself awake and entertained. The downside is that she now has a magnificent grip of vocabulary and a radar for sarcasm that is well above her age group... and my Finnish husband only speaks to her in Finnish so she is reasonably fluent in Finnish, too.
I wonder if the impact of social media on adults with very young children is being tracked in the US as well and how it will affect particularly marginalized children.
