"Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out."
"I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.”
You will be missed.
"A writer needs three things, experience, observation, and imagination, any two of which, at times any one of which, can supply the lack of the others."
I decided to check down a few more of the movies on my to watch list, brought the count down by 3 but still many left to go. I focused too much on recent movies lately so it was about time I went back to the list.
This was a trifecta of goodness. Loved all 3 of them. I need to do this more often, have a movie night by myself. (I much prefer watching movies alone then with company honestly, I need peace and quiet and no distraction/ it’s different when it’s in theatres though then I need people but even so if people yap during a good movie, I getting fucking annoyed and make sure to let them know.)
It’s sacred to me. Don’t fuck with me and my movie time. Simple as that.
