I go to bed with ALL my friends. -Gustav H.
The Grand Budapest Hotel. Film by Wes Anderson. Because we are enraptured by grandeur, bohemian hotels, vintage opulence, and humor in the Alps. Opens today. Magnificent Tilda, pretty Jude, Murray, Brody, Wilson. An eccentric romp. Our focus more the moldings than the film.
The grandness was not shot in Budapest at all, instead a remake of department store, Karstadt, in Görlitz, Germany to be modeled off the Grand Hotel Pupp in Karlsbad, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic. The ‘Pupp’ is obscene in elegance, our desired bohemian haunt. Secret transformation.
Let go of my lovey-boy! -Gustav
I began listening to transgender people, shutting up and just listening.
-Jared Leto, on his role as Rayon, Dallas Buyers Club. He, and co-star Matthew McConaughey, shock in essential character and physical transformation. A message. Change it up. Oscar calls.
Nebraska; June Squibb, Will Forte, Bruce Dern. Oscar tension.
Putin, on Ukraine entry. Destabilization. Careful Vlad. No violating Ukraine’s sovereignty. You can’t slide in, have the port, the magnificence. The world watches. Take the young sweetheart on holiday elsewhere.
Crimea: Taurica the name of Crimea in antiquity. If naming a baby girl today - Taurica. A beautiful place. Monasteries built into cliffs. Waterfalls. Castles built for love. Not war.
seth meyers to Sir Ian McKellen
Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen -exude brit sexy dapper and wit at 73 and 74yrs. X-men to Broadway. Now appearing in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, as well as Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. We’re most amused by the more bohemian, hip-stylish, playful McKellen. How to age. Let the face happen - the lines, the carvings, telltale of an intriguing, storied man.
