Pacific Home, African Work, Latin Heart

I enjoy art, reading, good music (especially jazz), and African and Latin Culture. My average Scrabble score is 280, I love puns, and I have one of the quickest wits in the (North)west.

A trip down sensory lane.

Filmmakers take note- This five second scene not only fully describes a characters backstory, but the entire reason he acts the way he acts through the film, taking him from a villain to a sympathetic character and justifying a total reversal of his actions in the present. In five seconds, this movie does for the development of a character more than most movies do in two hours. This is why you should be studying Disney and Pixar along with Martin Scorsese and Stanley Kubrick, and ignoring professors and elitist students who deride them as “kids stuff.”

“Of course I’ve changed. We all change. We all grow up, grow wiser, grow distant from the things we never thought we would. We all learn to laugh a little more and cry a little more and be a little more silly. We all slowly start to forget the people we once cared so much for, start to let the memories fade, and the faces blur. I have changed, and I will always be changing. For the better or worse, is a matter of perception. But don’t tell me I’ve changed like it isn’t inevitable.”

It’s easy to forget that birth control (as we know it) is a relatively recent thing. After you see how far we’ve come, find out if you’re up on the latest and greatest methods.

Reports have come in that ISIS has now also beheaded American journalist Steven Sotloff

thepoliticalnotebook:

… and threatened the life of Briton David Cawthorne Haines. 

To honor Sotloff, a man who reported on civilian suffering in dangerous circumstances with a lot of compassion, read a selection of his work here at Foreign Policy and at TIMEAlso consider a donation in his honor to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Rest in peace.
