Rob en París - Cosmópolis
James Gandolfini (1961 - 2013)
Such sad news to hear of the passing of The Sopranos menacing figurehead. No man before, or after, could portray exasperated anger quite so well. Aside from The Sopranos Gandolfini leaves behind an excellent body of work, including parts in In The Loop, 8mm and Zero Dark Thirty. His death is the end for both a metaphorical and literal giant in American acting.
Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! More George & Dhani Harrison this time quotes Dhani made about his father, George
“I did rebel. I was the rebel in my family, because my dad wanted me to go and just travel with him.”
“Keep your head down at school.’ Those are sage words from my dad. They kept me in check for years.”
“My dad used to say to me, ‘You look more like me than I do.’ “
“When my dad toured in ‘91, I think my first gig properly was the Tokyo Dome, 50,000 people indoors. That was pretty scary. I was 12, or 13.”
