Day 24 - That one awesome movie idea that still hasn’t been done yet
Okay, me and my friend have discussed how cool it would be if someone could do 50 First Dates as a drama. While I enjoyed the original enough, I just think there was so much potential there to be so much more. It would delve into how they (in a serious manner) dealt with her amnesia throughout their lives with kids and stuff. I would cast James Franco and Natalie Portman. I think that it would be very interesting. What do you guys think?
Love ridden, I’ve looked at you With the focus I gave to my birthday candles I’ve wished on the lidded blue flames Under your brow And baby, I wished for you Nobody sees when you are lying in your bed And I wanna crawl in with you But I cry instead I want your warm, but it will only make Me colder when it’s over, So I can’t tonight, baby No, not “baby” anymore - if I need you I’ll just use your simple name Only kisses on the cheek from now on And in a little while, we’ll only have to wave My hand won’t hold you down no more The path is clear to follow through I stood too long in the way of the door And now I’m giving up on you No, not “baby” anymore- if I need you I’ll just use your simple name Only kisses on the cheek from now on And in a little while, we’ll only have to wave No, not “baby” anymore- if I need you I’ll just use your simple name Only kisses on the cheek from now on And in a little while, we’ll only have to wave
“My father got sick when I was 22… and I was poor. And my father had an ulcer, and it exploded, and, you know, all these toxins get in your blood - and basically, my father died 50 days after his ulcer. So I had a father get sick while I was poor. My mother got sick while I was rich. I don’t really wanna get into to it, but my mother was sicker than my father, okay? And my mother’s alive. My mother’s fine, okay?
I remember going to the hospital to see my mother and wondering, was I in the right place? Like, this is a hotel! Like, it had a concierge, man! …If the average person really knew the discrepancy in the healthcare system, there’d be riots in the streets, okay? They would burn this motherfucker down.”—
“At first, I was somewhat hesitant to do the role. I mean, after all, Batman is an icon. But I remember, as clear as day, being at the grocery store the day the movie opened, and this little boy saw me. He couldn’t have been more than five years old. He just walked right up to me and hugged me. He hugged me, and I was so moved by it that I hugged him back. Then he looked up at me and said, “You’re my hero.” And in that moment, I knew that not only as an actor that I had done my job, but that I had made the right decision to play Batman. And I’ve never looked back on my the decision to play Batman since.”—Christian Bale, on playing Batman (via 2831) (via sailingglasskites) (via drlinus) (via alcoholicgifts) (via applesnpairs)
“What did I think about the decision to construct a “mosque” this close to ground zero? I thought it was a no-brainer. Of course it should be built there. I sometimes wonder if those people fighting so passionately against Park51 can fathom the diversity of those who died at ground zero. Do we think no Muslims died in the towers? My husband, Eddie Torres, killed on his second day of work at Cantor Fitzgerald while I was pregnant with our first child, was a dark-skinned Latino, often mistaken for Pakistani, who came here illegally from Colombia. How did “9/11 victim” become sloppy shorthand for “white Christian”?”—
