RIP Oscar de la Renta (July 22, 1932-October 20, 2014)
"There is much being said that his passing yesterday marks the end of an era. Not true. He was the most democratic man I knew and he would have lived happily and defined any era. He was happy dining with the rich and famous, for sure, but equally happy playing dominoes with his devoted staff. His designs reflected his extraordinary personality: optimistic, fun, sunny, romantic. … he told me he felt he had had the most amazing life and he was not afraid. This strength must have been with him in the hospital last week when he made the decision to turn off treatment; it was not the quality of life he wanted.
"He always said accept your friends for who they are, not for who you want them to be. Oscar was everything you could want a friend to be. Annette was his perfect partner, creating those magical houses and gardens together, giving extraordinary seemingly effortless dinners, and always taking care of each other. She slept on a cot in the hospital every night he was there. Theirs was the greatest, most life-enhancing love affair. Last week in the hospital he said that she never wears the beautiful jewelry he gave her, and she said simply, ‘I have you.’" — Anna Wintour
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
Beckett: So, basically, we’re looking for someone who won’t intimidate them. An adult presence in the classroom that eight year olds will view as a peer. Someone that they can consider one of their own.
Principal Silva: Okay, but where would we find someone like that?
Early Evening in Paris (by Paris in Four Months)
Yes, Carrie seducing Aayan is pretty low, but now that I’ve thought about it, if you ask me, the sex is not the most upsetting part of Carrie’s play. At least he’s getting something from it: pleasure. I think if there’s something to be upset about are Carrie’s empty promises about getting Aayan out of Pakistan and into another Med School. Because this is a kid who lost everything, including his future, and those are promises about hope for a future that Carrie has no intentions to fullfill (not at the moment, at least).
The sex adds another layer to the manipulation, it’s like the means to close the deal. But it’s not the center of the moral problem, imo.
