Your Most Important Relationship

December 13, 2014

I have seen some great movies in the last two weeks….

“Imitation Game”…with Benedict Cumberbatch about Alan Turing…who was such a brilliant man (Gay I might add)….and created a machine that broke the Nazi codes that were transmitted every day to their Army, Air Force, and Navy….

There were 100 million, million, million ways it would take for one to break the code…..

He created basically the First Computer…at Bletchley Park…outside of London….was imprisoned for his homosexuality…which was illegal back then…released when he agreed to take pills that chemically castrated him……

he committed suicide

was just recently pardoned and honored by Queen Elizabeth….

“Birdman”…with Michael Keaton…and the oh so fabulous Edward Norton and Emma Stone…and directed by the oh SOO Talented Alejandro Inaritu…..

about a faded Comic book action figure movie star (played by Michael Keaton)…who mortgages his Malibu home to pour everything into this Broadway production at the St James Theater… …due to a note a fabulous writer left him on a cocktail napkin all those years ago

….it is so wonderfully surrealistic but at the same time sooo real….with such humor…..

And then Chris Rock’s Brilliant movie…”Top Five”…..which he wrote, directed and stars in….

You must before or after watch the interview he did for an hour with Charlie Rose this week….

as with Chris he has that natural smile where I never know when he is kidding or being serious….

The movie is so tight ….it really is so Wonderful ….. I can’t wait to see him do more….

The main thing I came away with….as so many things that are happening in the world now…..from DC to LA

White people…have to step back and realize they NEVER had the key to the way Life should be led…..

they have only THEIR view… it does NOT apply to anyone else…..

Black people ….Mexican people….Middle Eastern people …Asians…Hawaiians…..

have their OWN culture and religious beliefs that have to be respected…..

we honkies have been sooo wrong for TOO many years…..

The mess in the Middle East is totally OUR fault….

there was an article last week in the Guardian News…about how the leaders of Isis or Isil…grew out of the American prison camps…. in Iraq…

after WE overthrew Saddam…..

the Sunnis were OUT and we backed the Shittes……

there was one prisoner who said …We would NEVER have had the possibility to form ….if we had not all met in the American….prisons…as we were from different tribes….

they learned to write down their new friends on the elastic waist band on their underwear…

and that is how they got together after they were out…..

Chris says….being Black…one has a commitment to Black people…..…to excel at what you do…
whereas the white “stars” do not have that pressure from their whites …”

“Le Bron…carries on his shoulders a huge responsibility to Cleveland”

“I think that you have to be uncomfortable sometimes to really be Alive…”

“an ‘Artist’….has to live in his head….it is hard when he is surrounded by an entourage…”

He was told by his friend Louis CK to write ALONE…which he said he did for his stand up material…but for anything else he wrote with a group of talented writer

….he REALIZED what CK said was so true as everything that created this movie came out of HIS head only….

It is quite brilliant!!!!

As Diana Von Furestenburg said in another interview with Charlie…

“The Most Important relationship in Life….is the one you create with yourself….

Once that is Created ….you realize the rest become a Plus and not a Must…”
