I snagged two things from two other people’s blogs …
The first thing is from Rosie O’Donnell’s 11/4/06 blog entry
its about adjusting
to where u r
no matter the place
even when it is scary
or somehow perfect
moment by moment
I don’t always understand Rosie’s style of writing, but this stanza really resonated with me. I don’t think we do enough of this. You need to adjust to the place where you are because where you are won’t adjust to you.
The second is from Tim Goodman’s blog post from today …
Here at The Bastard Machine we have a pretty clear set of rules when it comes to actors: We only care about actors as they appear in Our Favorite Shows. We do not care about their private lives. We do not care what others think of them. We do not want to interview them. We do not care about their sexuality, their political or religious beliefs – up to and including Scientology – who they adopt, sleep with or what they wear. We only care about how they service the story and how well they can act or, short of that, how freakin’ hot they are. Period.
Tim said what a lot of people think and what those stupid rag magazines don’t understand … what they print isn’t news and I don’t care about it. The fact that the guy who played Doogie Howser is gay is completely irrelevant. He’s one, if not the, funniest guy on How I Met Your Mother. What else should I care about?
