finished 'the fountainhead'...

now what?

'thousands of years ago the first man discovered how to make fire. he was probably burned at the stake he had taught his brothers to light, but he left them a gift they had not conceived of, and he lifted darkness off the earth. throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision. the great creators, the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors, stood alone against the men of their time. every new thought was opposed. every new invention was denounced. but the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. they fought, they suffered, and they paid - but they won. ' 


go see it: black swan

finally! i've been waiting for this to come out since i first heard the buzz months ago. natalie portman. i dont even know what to say. i was convinced that she WAS an actual ballerina, not just another actress in a tutu. bravo. i would say 'best actress, in the bag" but it may be too 'weird' for any major awards or for mainstream audiences to appreciate it. rodarte's swan lake costumes were perfect. they were proper ballet costumes and stuck to the tradition and crafstmanship of tutu making but they were still SO rodarte. darren aronofsky got me again. go see it.
