Matt Damon was conflicted when friends Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Affleck called on him to complete the ALS ice bucket challenge. The award-winning actor wanted to help a good cause, but didn’t want to waste clean water in the process. So, he did what …
Thank you! While you’re busy dumping water on your head to draw attention to what a great, charitable person you are, can you remember how many people in the world NEED that water you just wasted. Even in the U.S., people don’t have access to safe water and part of the country is suffering under one of the worse droughts on record. Maybe open your wallet now for another worthwhile cause, even if you may not be able to post a funny video about it on facebook.
He’s a walking, running, snarling one-man show with its own dense cast of characters. But what’s made him especially compelling this season is the suspicion that he isn’t a wolf in sheep’s clothing, but the other way around.
So happy to see Philip Jennings (Matthew Rhys) on this list. There aren’t even words for how unbelievably perfect he is.
“Just the quality of working on cable right now is just the best place to work.. Especially being an actress — it’s tough right now in movies. There are a few, a handful, that I think are great movies. If you win the lottery and get to be the girl in that movie, you have maybe one good scene. You’re usually someone’s girlfriend, or a mom, worried. My show that I get to do is this really rich, in-depth character, and it’s fun. It’s weird, and all of these different things, not just the supporting girlfriend in one scene.”—Keri Russell (MTV.com)
So I found myself tonight once again trying to explain to someone why Modest Mouse is the most amazing, soul-filling THING I’ve ever encountered. And I realized why I have such a tough time getting people to understand them. If they can’t understand:
“Where do you move when what you’re moving from is yourself?
I’m on a road shaped like a figure 8. I’m going nowhere, but I’m guaranteed to be late
I didn’t go to work for a month; I didn’t leave my bed for eight days straight; I haven’t hung out with anyone; Because if I did, I’d have nothing to say
Other people’s lives seem more interesting cuz they ain’t mine
Roll down the windows and open our mouths taste where we are and play the music loud
You always told me life’s a dam that breaks. Here it comes. If you sit still or if you run. Here it comes.
I am not who I want to be; I probably will not ever be
Well uh-uh baby I ain’t got no plan. We’ll float on maybe would you understand?
Don’t worry even if things end up a bit too heavy. We’ll all float on alright
Your body may be gone, I’m gonna carry you in. In my head, in my heart, in my soul.
Well the suit got tight and it split at the seams. But I kept it out of habit and I kept it really clean. But if it’s getting’ faded, if it’s runnin’ outta thread, Could you just do this for me my friend?
Need more sleep than coke or methamphetamines. Late nights with warm, warm whiskey. I guess the good times they were all just killing me.
In this place that i call home, my brain’s the cliff, and my heart’s the bitter buffalo
Well, i’ll go to college and i’ll learn some big words and i’ll talk real loud goddamn right i’ll be heard. You’ll remember all the guys that said all those big words he must’ve learned in college
Everything that keeps me together is falling apart. I’ve got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over
You didn’t buy a face, nope just a mask so HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!”
Optimism doesn’t change the facts, just what you’re gonna see
We pushed off we’re rolling boulders, crashing down the mirrored stairways. Two of life’s best mine canaries
Looking towards the future, we were begging for the past Well we knew we had the good thing, but those never seemed to last. Oh please just last
It’s hard to get hold of and hard to let go. Always something we look for from the day we were born. Instead we’re the people that we wanted to know and we’re the places that we wanted to go.”
… then they can never understand the glory of Modest Mouse.
