“One of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them: It is a well-known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. Anyone who is capable of getting themselves into a position of power should on no account be allowed to do the job. Another problem with governing people is people.” – Douglas Adams”—(via lifelessinkuwait)
Here, have some fresh, excellent music in your face.
There’s a chance I’m slightly biased as this is from a band one of my good friends who I lived with for a couple of years at uni is in. He lives in Brighton now. That sentence means nothing other than I’m jealous. Buuuuuut all of that aside I think this a great track and it’s on their debut EP which came out TODAY (as long as by today you mean yesterday) which is all free to download from their Bandcamp and stream on their Facebook page.
Be sure to use your ears when you listen otherwise it won’t work.
“Where was it when I first hard that sweet sound of humility?
It came to my ears in the goddamn loveliest melody.
How great it was then to be part of the mystery,
To love and to be loved.
Well, let’s just hope that is enough.”—Bright Eyes, Let’s Not Shit Ourselves (To Love And To Be Loved)
What is the status of Arrested Development? Do you have any idea when you might actually film that, and are you excited that it’s finally going to happen?
HOWARD: There’s not a specific start date, but Mitch Hurwitz is definitely working to quickly get it all underway. I don’t want to burden him with any release dates, but I know he’s well underway and it’s something he’s been thinking about a lot, over the previous year. It’s a huge challenge ‘cause we’re talking about 10 episodes, or almost character studies, individually featuring various characters from the Bluth family and showing where they are now and updating audiences, as we build to what we eventually expect and hope will be a movie. So, we need to re-acclimate everybody, and I think he’s got some hilarious idea about where these characters are in the world now, four or five years later, what they’ve been up to, what their frame of mind is now, and how they relate to each other. It’s pretty hilarious, outrageous stuff. Mitch is really enjoying delving back into the Bluth family.
