Not to sound too much like Christopher Guest in 'Waiting for Guffman ' but on Thanksgiving you're putting on a show!
What I'm not saying is that all government spending is bad. It's not - far far from it but there is no free lunch as a former colleague of mine used to say. There is no public tooth fairy. Father Christmas does not work on the Treasury staff this year. You can never bail someone out of trouble without putting someone else into trouble.
The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things.
A caricature is putting the face of a joke on the body of a truth.
Some scenes you juggle two balls some scenes you juggle three balls some scenes you can juggle five balls. The key is always to speak in your own voice. Speak the truth. That's Acting 101. Then you start putting layers on top of that.
It is only a man's own fundamental thoughts that have truth and life in them. For it is these that he really and completely understands. To read the thoughts of others is like taking the remains of someone else's meal like putting on the discarded clothes of a stranger.
A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
Acting deals with very delicate emotions. It is not putting up a mask. Each time an actor acts he does not hide he exposes himself.
People spend too much time finding other people to blame too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being and not enough energy putting themselves on the line growing out of the past and getting on with their lives.
While there have been terrific advances in the state of technology around heuristics behavior blocking and things like that technology is only a part of the approach to solving the problem with the more important aspect involving putting the right process in place.
So many times these kids know more about the technology than their parents. And so many times we're putting kids in very adult situations and expecting them to behave like they're 40 years old. Well that's just not going to happen.
Look at countries like China they are determined to dominate all clean technology areas putting lots of money into wind solar electric vehicles and battery storage. America's political impotence caused by their terrible partisanship will see them left behind.
We know the parental support community support makes a difference. It's not just the metrics of testing and putting pressure on the schools and on the teachers.
This is just what I have thought when I have seen slaves at work - they seem to go through the motions of labor without putting strength into them. They keep their powers in reserve for their own use at night perhaps.
I know what my limitations are as an actor but my strength is putting myself into a well-written part. When I get in trouble is when I have to fix it or when I have to carry it on personality.
The thing about sports movies is they can't help but feel epic - putting music to images etc.
There's steps that I've taken already and each week talking with the sports psychologist on a routine basis and working with the different programs that we're going through. This is all stuff that you can say you're going to make a difference but I'm putting it into action.
Putting women in military combat is the cutting edge of the feminist goal to force us into an androgynous society.
I would argue that we have a generation of young people particularly minorities who are no longer putting up with the kinds of things their parents put up with. They're much more self-confident. It's no longer acceptable to make fun of people because of race or sex. But it has always been present in American society.
A simple compliment goes a really long way - for a guy to just come over and say 'You have great hair' or 'I really like your dress ' and then just smile and walk away. That's a great move because he's sort of putting himself out there by doing that but it won't lead to any embarrassment if the girl isn't interested.
Well there's nothing more touching than putting a smile on a kid's face when you can.
Country music in the mid-'90s was a big influence on my career and I played all the songs that are referenced in ''94' back in my club days. Joe Diffie was rocking a sick mullet and he was hotter than ever... just putting out monster hit after monster hit. It totally takes me back to those days and it makes me smile every time I hear it.
I think Bach is equally a romantic composer because he laid the seeds harmonically for people like Chopin and the great Romantics Brahms so it's difficult to you know all this like labelling and putting - I think Bach is attractive to musicians because he supersedes the labels.
I respect the game that goes on of putting this against that but I don't respect nor do I enjoy an awful lot of the actual programs that go on the air.
