the.newsroom

after seeing dumb and dumber it is hard to picture jeff daniels as a news anchor
but he totally kills it in the newsroom
his sharp wit and fast talking character will mcavoy is unbelievable
with a cast featuring emily mortimer, dev patel, sam waterston, olivia munn and alison pill
the show is absolutely amazing
there is a reason people say the best shows are on hbo
the newsroom is a prime example

” And yeah, you, sorority girl. Just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there’s some things you should know, and one of them is, there’s absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number 4 in labor force, and number 4 in exports. We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined. 25 of whom are allies. Now, none of this is the fault of a 20 year old college student. But you, nonetheless, are without a doubt a member of the worst period generation period ever period. So when you ask, “what makes us the greatest country in the world?” I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. Yosemite?  We sure used to be. We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reasons. We passed laws, struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbours. We put our money where our mouths were. And we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and we cultivated the world’s greatest artists and the world’s greatest economy. We reached for the stars, acted like men. We aspired to intelligence, we didn’t belittle it, it didn’t make us feel inferior. We didn’t identify ourselves by who we voted for in our last election. And we didn’t… we didn’t scare so easy. We were able to be all these things, and to do all these things, because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered. First step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one. America is not the greatest country in the world anymore.”

 I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never going to understand, never understand
Oh I was born to live without you
But I’m never going to understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier that’s going down

I thought it over and drew the curtain
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
And I’ll only consider it as you played the hallelujah
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

If you’ve been made to serve the master you’d
Be frightened by the hokum and be frightened by the night
Could I’ve been made to serve the master
Well I’m never going to understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier that’s going down

Hold me in your everlasting arms

the sessions

the sessions is one of the best movies i have seen this year
it is beautiful, enlightening, amazing
and leaves you smiling as tears steam down your face
i recommend it to everyone
and helen hunt and john hawkes are brilliant

“let me touch you with my words
for my hands lie limp as empty gloves
let my words stroke your hair
slide down your back and tickle your belly
ignore my wishes and stubbornly refuse to carry out my quietest desires
let my words enter your mind bearing torches
admit them willingly into your being
so they may caress you gently
within

tonight you’re mine completely
you give your love so sweetly
tonight the light of love is in your eyes
will you love me tomorrow?

is this a lasting treasure
or just a moment’s pleasure?
can I believe the magic of your sighs?
will you still love me tomorrow?

tonight with words unspoken
and you say that I’m the only one, the only one, yeah
but will my heart be broken
when the night meets the morning star?

i’d like to know that your love
is love I can be sure of
so tell me now, cause I won’t ask again
will you still love me tomorrow?
will you still love me tomorrow?
