I support any procedure that allows photographers to express themselves whether that involves color black and white platinum palladium and digital technology.
The research rat of the future allows experimentation without manipulation of the real world. This is the cutting edge of modeling technology.
But I really like hosting I think it's a strength of mine. It allows me to improvise and I love the spontaneity of that and I think I'm funny behind the desk when interviewing someone.
Guys do not have a genetic blueprint that allows them to understand or love sports.
I do love science fiction but it's not really a genre unto itself it always seems to merge with another genre. With the few movies I've done I've ended up playing with genre in some way or another so any genre that's made to mix with others is like candy to me. It allows you to use big mythic situations to talk about ordinary things.
The purpose of science is not to analyze or describe but to make useful models of the world. A model is useful if it allows us to get use out of it.
Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction but Einstein's general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.

A wise nation should cultivate a political spirit that allows opponents to cooperate without fearing an automatic execution from their core supporters. Who knew that the real rogues in American politics would be the ones who dare to get along?
I read as much poetry as time allows and circumstance dictates: No heartache can pass without a little Dorothy Parker no thunderstorm without W. H. Auden no sleepless night without W. B. Yeats.
But I can only write what the muse allows me to write. I cannot choose I can only do what I am given and I feel pleased when I feel close to concrete poetry - still.
I think that's what poetry does. It allows people to come together and identify with a common thing that is outside of themselves but which they identify with from the interior.
