Life is not what you alone make it. Life is the input of everyone who touched your life and every experience that entered it. We are all part of one another.

I just saw that James Avery just passed away and all I could think of was this scene from Fresh Prince. The ending moment between Will and Uncle Phil was unscripted and it shows how caring and loving James Avery was towards the people he interacted with. Judge Phillip Banks was the first positive black male role model I saw on TV (other than Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable…) and I want to post this in tribute. Mr. Avery, thank you for being a part of my childhood and you will be sorely missed.

What is Satan doing here?

James Gandolfini to Glenn Beck’s face

 …As Beck tells it, when he stood up to take his five-year-old son to the bathroom he reached over and introduced himself to Gandolfini (they apparently have a mutual friend) and shook his hand….at which point Gandolfini apparently said “what is Satan doing here?”

In a way, Michael was born too late: He wrote with the sort of commitment of the generation of reporters shaped by the government’s lies about Vietnam, not by the triumphalism of the 1990s or the reflexive patriotism of the years after 9/11. He was surer than most of us that power is, presumptively, not to be trusted. Writers of his courage and talent are so rare, and he was taken way too soon. There are few like him. We will miss him terribly.
