"I must continue to follow the path I take now. If I do nothing, if I study nothing, if I cease searching, then, woe is me, I am lost. That is how I look at it — keep going, keep going come what may. But what is your final goal, you may ask. That goal will become clearer, will emerge slowly but surely, much as the rough draught turns into a sketch, and the sketch into a painting through the serious work done on it, through the elaboration of the original vague idea and through the consolidation of the first fleeting and passing thought".

“I realize that I’m being, shall we say, candid. But I find that it’s next to impossible to talk about sex without getting specific. And how else does one get what one wants out of sex than by talking about it? So I’ll go first: I don’t understand why so many men act like, by giving head, they’re doing you a favor. I half expect them to say “You’re welcome” afterward. I recently met a guy who, while flirting with me at a party, said, “Just so you know, I’m the kind of guy who cares about making a girl cum.” He then stared at me in anticipation, as if waiting for me to faint, or for celebratory balloons to fall from the ceiling. Not to mention that when you meet the rare guy who’s up for going down, he’s often remarkably bad at it.”

“After Risky Business, Cruise had an unhappy experience making Legend with Ridley Scott, and responded by working closely with producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer on the script for 1986’s Top Gun, honing it until the ratio of cockiness to self-doubt in Cruise’s fighter-pilot character, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, was roughly inverted from who Joel is in Risky Business. Moviegoers ate it up, and Cruise had found his other recurring onscreen persona: the man of skill, who starts a story as one of the best in the world at what he does, and is only a few pat life-lessons away from becoming the best.”
Our Movie Of The Week look at Top Gun continues with Noel Murray’s essay on Tom Cruise’s post-Top Gun films, The Color Of Money and Cocktail, which found the actor repeating himself—and the film’s plot—as he came into his own. [Read more…]

12 Elaine Stritch quotes to live by
Elaine Stritch, female comedy icon and salty Broadway grand dame, died Thursday at the grand age of 89. Outspoken, lauded and often considered difficult by her co-workers, Stritch never stopped working even in her 80s, only moving out of New York in the last year or so of her life. She was a proud supporter of the city all through her life, though. “I think it’s the wrong way around to say when you get older move to the country,” she once said. “I think when you get older you move to New York. If you’re a nice broad they’ll look after you.”
