But I can't imagine Harry being a stockbroker at 35. That doesn't really seem the stuff of 'Harry Potter'.
I was in uniform for four years, and I know that heroism doesn't occur from taking orders, but rather from people who through their own willpower and strength are willing to sacrifice their lives for an idea.
If 'Party of Five' hadn't done well, it would have been a bunch of names involved in the demise. But if 'Time of Your Life' doesn't do well, it will be my name. You have to prepare for the worst. This is a very fickle business.
If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.
I'm not one who divides music, dance or art into various categories. Either something works, or it doesn't.
There is obviously a power and a truth in action that doesn't lie, which words easily can do.
I have not wanted to intimidate audiences. I have not wanted my dancing to be an elitist form. That doesn't mean I haven't wanted it to be excellent.
The artist doesn't really think about consequences - he or she does the work, stands back and looks at and thinks, 'Hmm, that could have worked better like this.' But as a person who needs to sell tickets to do the next work, one needs to analyze how it does or does not hit its mark.
Work doesn't seem to interfere with my life. I have time for everything, even time to be alone.
I know what I can do so it doesn't bother me what other people think or their opinion on the situation.
But if I keep my core and back strong, the scoliosis doesn't really bother me.
The upshot here is that Gil Scott-Heron is still a warrior, even if the front lines have moved. He's made a record not without hope but which doesn't come with any easy or comforting answers. In that way, the man is clearly still committed to speaking the truth.
The lesson of the Cuban Missile Crisis is plain: Strength prevents war; weakness invites it. We need a commander-in-chief who understands that - and who won't leave us facing a foe who thinks he doesn't.
What I'm resistant to is the 'Walk the Line' biopic, where you have this redemptive life done in two hours. It just doesn't wash with me. I've been there and things don't work out that way.
You write a scene, and it works or it doesn't. It's immediate.
