Edward Norton on Wes Anderson’s films:

"What I’ve loved about Wes from the get-go [is] — the whimsy, the incredible humor … but there’s always these moments of pathos that come in and sideswipe you. Every time I watch The Royal Tenenbaums, I’m laughing and laughing and then for whatever reason, as soon as there’s that scene where [Richie Tenenbaum] releases the falcon or the hawk over the city and they play that Velvet Underground song, I tear up every single time. … I can’t explain it.
I’ve come to think that a lot of Wes’ movies are about the same thing, which is maybe people struggling with the way that the family that you’re born into fails you or you don’t have the family that you want, so you go and create the family that you need. So many of the characters in Wes’ movies are essentially creating alternative communities that support them. I think there’s something really sweet in that idea.”

Watching live dance performances causes your body to respond as if you’re dancing too. A study showed that people watching dancers had specific motor responses to the movement. So if you see someone do an amazing pirouette, your body is secretly trying to do one too.  Source

Dope


I’m so sorry.  I can’t help myself.  This book is Dope.  Literally.  As for figuratively, well I haven’t read it, but I sure hope it is.

If you’re ever walking through Changi Airport in Singapore, make sure to take in this breathtaking art installation by ART+COM. Called Kinetic Rain, it’s composed of two parts, each with 608 rain droplets made of lightweight aluminum covered with copper. Suspended from thin steel ropes, each droplet seem to magically float as they move precisely with one another, thanks to the help of hidden computer-controlled motor.

Autumn on We Heart It.

I firmly believe in small gestures: hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk & throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are - particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done for me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (‘I’m not a big one for paying compliments…’), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.
