“When I was a foreign correspondent in Moscow, people would ask me how I ended up there, and I would feel kind of embarrassed and say I didn’t know,” Shipman recalls. She went on to cover the White House, a transition that terrified her. “It would have been a useful and powerful message to say to myself, ‘Look at what I accomplished in Moscow,’ rather than believing I just fell into it.”.
I would love to see a movie that focused on a man of science blinded by ambition destroy his life to become doctor doom. Sacrifice his humanity for power and intelligence and not just for powers sake. Have him do it because he truly believes he is right and the smartest being in the universe.
On the whole a good pro and a bad pro will have similar day on the green Averaging about 29 putts +/ 1 putt. They will 1 putt 38% of the time, and 3 putt 3% of the time, with minimum change from the best to the worst. In that regard, we can virtually ignore putting stats as there is so little difference..
First, I’d like to emphasize that getting published should be among many goals, but not the only goal. I just read an excellent book on writing that, if you read only one book on writing this year, let it be this one: Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. Writing should give you joy whether you get published or not.
But the deepest sentiment Iggy achieves in King of the Dogs is “I’m hanging out where the spirits dwell/ I can smell the things you cannot smell.” The arrangement, a sufficiently rousing combination of the trombone, clarinet and trumpet blasts one would expect to hear while careening drunk through the French Quarter, feels far more suited to the croaky voice and grizzled persona of Pop’s friend and Coffee and Cigarettes co star, Tom Waits.I’m hoping this tossed off trinket is simply the sound of Iggy getting warmed up and that the rest of the album will have more, ahem, bite. His lovely French cover version of Autumn Leaves (Les Feuilles Mortes), for example, suggests the singer’s willing to stretch his depths of hell baritone in rich new directions; you can hear a snippet at the end of this lengthy press conference.While you wait to hear the rest of Prliminaires, I do recommend checking out the video for King of the Dogs. Its interactive premise follow one of 3 shaggy dog stories! and furry creatures from stop motion whiz Patrick Boivin will surely lead to tail wagging excitement from many Iggy fans:Passion play: My first impression of Manners, the debut long player from Cambridge, Mass., five piece Passion Pit, was simply this: damn, these guys are enthusiastic.
