Yes, you can contact with me. But, if you would want that I played on your party on cassettes, then I refuse. I do not play on cassettes any more. In general, I don’t want play in the club, because people come there to drink and to search partner for copulate. This is bad. -

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has been so inspired by this year’s Cannes Film Festival, he is now writing his own big-screen project. The hip-hop star has previously expressed an interest in pursuing a career in Hollywood, and has even made acting appearances in films such as Monster’s Ball and Made. But now the rap mogul, who made his first trip to the French event this month, is desperate to prove he also has what it takes to become a filmmaker. And he has already compiled his shortlist of leading stars. He says, “I’m writing a film, a comedy. For actresses (who could be cast), I’m thinking Angelina Jolie or Sienna Miller. For actors, Eddie Murphy.”

“And I think most of us want Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull to be good, which it, sadly, is not. If we love the first three Indiana Jones films, it’s because they had great action, mythic objects of wonder and great comedy touches within big, well-shaped stories; Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull feels like it was reverse-engineered from that blueprint, as if enough action and props and comedy would then make a story. Crystal Skull may bring back the faces and themes we remember, but it’s curiously bloated and malnourished, too much and not enough.”—
“There are roughly three New Yorks. There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born here, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size and its turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter—the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night. Third, there is the New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something. […] Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness; natives give it solidity and continuity; but the settlers give it passion.”—
E.B. White, Here is New York
My parents (both originally from the Midwest) moved to New York in 1968, and I was born in 1971. When I first read this passage, years ago now, I finally started to understand how my parents’ New York was different from my own—and that New York was important to them in a way that I think I can never entirely understand.
“Riding that bike wasn’t easy. It was a really heavy bike, and having [Harrison] on the back is not easy, pressure-wise, because if you fall, that’s the end of the movie. You don’t want to be that guy.”—
