Quote of the Day
Technology has advanced more in the last thirty years than in the previous two thousand. The exponential increase in advancement will only continue. Anthropological Commentary The opposite of a trivial truth is false; the opposite of a great truth is also true.
The first forty years of life give us the text; the next thirty supply the commentary on it.
Spirituality does two things for you. One, you are forced to become more selfless, two, you trust to providence. The opposite of a spiritual man is a materialist. If I was a materialist I would be making lots of money doing endorsements, doing cricket commentary. I have no interest in that.
I mean, making art is about objectifying your experience of the world, transforming the flow of moments into something visual, or textual, or musical, whatever. Art creates a kind of commentary.
My entire soul is a cry, and all my work is a commentary on that cry.
The narration, in fact, doubles the drama with a commentary without which no mise en scene would be possible.
The problem with relying on nostalgia for commentary is that people only remember the good things.
'Twisted' is similar to 'Pretty Little Liars' in that it's about trying to find out who did it, but it's more about the human relationships between characters and the strain that things can put on them. It's also a little bit of a social commentary piece, because it covers very timely issues.
Melissa McCarthy just opened this new movie, 'Identity Thief,' and Rex Reed, who's a known critic, wrote a scathing commentary on her weight. I think that weight designation is one of the last frontiers of bullying. I don't know what the right 'ism' for it is, but I think that there's a level of that that's happening that's certainly not okay.
Music is always a commentary on society.
Stand-up comics reflect less of a visual humor and more of a commentary.
If there are three words that need to be used more in American journalism, commentary, politics, personal life... it's the magic words 'I don't know.'

I always had a running commentary in my head that was extremely funny and off-center, but I never said it to anyone.

I'm in my usual state up here in the commentary box: high tension, heart beating like a trip hammer, whatever that is.
The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art - and, by analogy, our own experience - more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.
I like singing all songs, really, but I find that writing social commentary comes naturally.
When I think about writers who use fiction as social commentary and to raise social awareness but who are also very popular, I think of Dickens.
I love a smart, well-written show, and '30 Rock,' well, you can't get any better than that. Tina Fey poos funny. There's nothing that she does that isn't funny. That show is an example of how brilliant she is. It's so smart. They've done some brilliant commentary about the 'Housewives' with 'Queen of Jordan,' their show-within-the-show.

I don't like going to football games. I like watching them on television. When you go to a game, it's hard to focus. There's so much going on, and it's cold. I'd rather sit and watch it and get replays and commentary.
