"It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things."
"I fall in love with people’s passion. The way their eyes light up when they talk about the thing they love and the way they fill with light."
"Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life."
Excerpt from Jenna Ushkowitz’ ‘Choosing Glee’
We were running around on broomsticks and choreographing dance numbers and I just wanted to yell, “How amazing is this?! How are we all not jumping with joy that these are out days?!”
There was one thing I couldn’t help but say to everyone, over and over again:
“We should be doing this. All of the time. We could do this for real, and we should. This should be our life.”
- Julia Albain, A Glamorously Unglamorous Life
“I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had to kiss a lot of boys. I finally understand why my [past girlfriends] won’t kiss me with a stubbly beard… I get it now. Hairy men, it hurts.”
-Matt Smith on Christopher and His Kind
"Fan fiction is making teenagers better writers and better satirists, and allowing them to explore sexuality in a way decided by them rather than dictated by the entertainment industry. A purity ring doesn’t carry much meaning when Ron Weasley is pulling it off with his teeth."
"Benedict is a little more aloof during filming than Martin and we certainly didn’t want to disturb him while he worked, but on one occasion during Wednesday night between the rehearsals of a scene, he was texting away on his phone and didn’t look to be very busy. We were convinced the texting was to Martin, who was down the other end of the street, and although it was no doubt just a coincidence, Martin happened to be on his phone too. One would look at their phone and laugh and then a moment later the other would theirs and then laughed themselves."
-Sherlockology Reichenbach Set Report (via fyeahfreebatch)
“There was a very touching moment between them on Wednesday; Martin had arrived on set several hours after Benedict, and when Benedict spotted him he went straight up to Martin who was standing by the monitors and gave him a huge hug. It was lovely to see, especially as they continued to talk, Benedict standing in the road and Martin on the pavement (but still managing to be the same height incidentally), Benedict arranged the front of Martin’s shirt for him as he talked.”
"50% of all marriages end in divorce. 100% of all “Make Your Own Sundae”-bars end happily."
