Three Random Things

I saw Sean Penn's film, INTO THE WILD, this weekend. Hope you all had
the chance to see it on the big screen, as well. Give Emile Hirsch the Jim Caviezel Award for the greatest suffering on film. I have not seen an actor put through this much in quite a while. Good job by Sean and Co.

Also, give Ryan Gosling the Ryan Gosling Award for being such an unbelievable film actor. I saw LARS AND THE REAL GIRL this weekend, too. Gosling is one of the few leading men in movies who could pull this role off. He was phenomenal in HALF NELSON and he is remarkable here.

Man, I keep thinking about how I shot my mouth off with all the things I have said about this administration. All the things that all of their opponents have said. What liars, whores and thieves
these people are. Then, I get uptight when I watch even a snippet of these debates. Is leadership there? Is greatness there? Is the end of the war there? Up on that stage?

I miss my make-up artist, Stacey Panepinto. I miss my hairstylist, Richard Esposito. I miss all of the 30 ROCK cast and crew, who I don't see anymore because of this motherfucking, motherfucking, motherfucking strike.
