“Let me explain something. We are professionally in love with each other. We do not have the option of arguing, it slows down production, and we have come to a point where we’ve argued on things - he likes something I don’t, he goes ahead with it, it works, everybody likes it, and vice-versa. Jackson will not like something I do, we run it in the show, it plays out. That has bred a kind of trust where our opinions are not for if they’re good or if they’re bad, it’s a very minor thing where I want it to go one way he wants it to go another way. The minute where I feel he really cares, he can fucking have it, there’s nothing worth arguing about because we trust each other implicitly.”—Doc Hammer, on whether he and Jackson Publick ever have creative disagreements over The Venture Bros. (x)
“Bad books on writing tell you to ‘WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW’, a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery.”—Joe Haldeman (via maxkirin)
“I think Jack was sensational. I met Jack during the filming of the pilot many years ago now, and he’s like the nicest guy you’d ever want to meet. He’s really bright and a fiercely intelligent young man going to Trinity College in Dublin. I don’t know if you’ve seen his speech at the Oxford Union, it’s pretty amazing about celebrity culture. He’s very perceptive and he played this loathsome character and somehow made him more loathsome. He created someone that everybody hates, and loves to hate, and that’s a considerable feat of acting. I feel a little guilty that he’s quitting acting now. I hope that playing Joffrey didn’t help make him want to retire from the profession because he does have quite a gift for it and could have a major career as an actor.”—George R.R. Martin(talking about Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon))
being vegan is so emotionally draining like i can’t even look at someone drinking a milkshake without wanting to cry this is ridiculous if your ‘food’ makes me emotionally distressed that might be a sign that it’s not good
In love with my iPod touch. I wasn’t expecting everything to be so pink. Like the numbers and arrows are pink and awesome. It only took me 3 hours to make the switch vs the all day headache of the last one. Need an adapter for my clock now, though.
