An Infinite List of Favorite Collections - Paolo Sebastian F/W 2014 Bridal
San Francisco’s new service ManServants provides ladies with a gentleman who treats them like a queen, acting as a personal assistant, bodyguard, butler, bartender, photographer, cabana boy, and more.
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
It’s Music Monday, and we feel like dancing. What’s on your ‘Awesome Mix’?
For this Throwback Thursday #TBT , I give you how I met dear friend and prolific author, Neil Gaiman on the set of HELLBOY II: The Golden Army (He’s the one on the right, not in Abe Sapien’s make-up ) Neil and his princess of a daughter, Maddie, spent roughly 6 weeks with us there in Budapest…. Among my happiest memories from that shoot, and the beginning of a delightful friendship.
Doug is the sweetest man in the world. I’d known him for 3 weeks before I saw him out of Abe Sapiens make up, and it took some getting used to, to discover my friend wasn’t actually a blue creature from the black lagoon…
SHAKESPEARE WROTE THAT ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE.
HIS THEATER WAS CALLED THE GLOBE.
NOT ONLY WAS THAT LINE PHILOSOPHICAL AND DEEP,
BUT IT WAS ALSO A FUCKING PUN.
ALSO REMEMBER THE FAMOUS LINE FROM ROMEO & JULIET:
"A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD SMELL AS SWEET"
THE RIVAL THEATRE WAS CALLED THE ROSE
AND THEY HAD A SEWAGE PROBLEM
NOT JUST A BEAUTIFUL LINE BUT ALSO A PUN AND WILLY SHAKES THROWING SHADE
