If the movie of your life were to be made, who would you cast?
“And another thing. You don't have to "move on" either. Not until you're ready. People say, Oh, you should be grateful. They say, Oh, it's time for you to move on. I'm like, What are you, a cop with a nightstick? I'll move on when I'm done playing the blues on my harmonica, thank you very much.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

You don't have to move on until you're ready.”

Celeste Holm. I've always wanted to be a sassy side-kick confidante.

curb your god

If we believe absurdities, we shall commit atrocities. (Voltaire)


One is often told that it is very wrong to attack religion because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it. (Bertrand Russell)

Believing there is no god gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O, and all things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have. (Penn Jillette)

How come no one's making fun of some of these choices? :(

The little twat who plays Harry Potter. Sigh.
He has taken up residence in the 'Grand Hotel Abyss' - a beautiful hotel, equipped with every comfort, on the edge of an abyss, of nothingness, of absurdity. And the daily contemplation of the abyss between excellent meals or artistic entertainments, can only heighten the enjoyment of the subtle comforts offered.

Anna Magnani. As my character ages, she can transition in to Simone Signoret, thank you very much.

Jaymes told me Nathan Lane once and I was horrified, which confused her.

Just the other day she compared me to Truman Capote and I'm no writer! You do the math!

Later, she commented on my walk. "What?", I asked, "Is it some mincing gait?"
"No", she said, "But you seem to glad to be here!"

I think I've written this elsewhere but once in the 1980s I was in Napa with some friends and we were winetasting and the pourer told me I reminded him of Rex Harrison. I didn't get it but I assumed is was my regal way and clever banter. "Wait, wait wait!" he cried, "I mean Rex Reed! That's the guy's name!" I was sick, I tell you!

So in my head, I see Gregory Peck or Cary Grant but the reality seems to be the awkward secret love child of Bette Davis and Charles Nelson Reilly.

"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed
