Barack Obama on the Parkland Students

2 Comments and 3 Shares

Barack Obama, writing for Time magazine’s “Most Influential People of 2018” on Parkland, Florida students Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma González, and Alex Wind:

America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern. We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then — even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support commonsense reforms — the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis.

This time, something different is happening. This time, our children are calling us to account.

The Parkland, Fla., students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet.

But they have the power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom.

The power to insist that America can be better.

He has such a distinct writing style — I can hear his voice as I read his words.

One big advantage of law school, and the presidents who graduate from them: They've learned rhetoric. They've learned how to write. They've learned how to speak.

Tango, an inventive time-looping animated film

1 Share

Tango is an experimental animated film made by Zbigniew Rybczyński in 1980. It takes place entirely in one room with an increasing number of characters cycling through it repeatedly. It’s the kind of thing you can’t stop watching once you start. (It’s also mildly NSFW.) Tango won The Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1983. (via @neilcic)

Vincent van Gogh visits a gallery of his paintings in the present day

2 Comments

In an episode of Doctor Who from 2010, the Doctor and his companion Amy take Vincent van Gogh, who was not a commercially successful artist in his own lifetime, to the Musée d’Orsay d'Orsay to see an entire room filled with his paintings. The resulting scene is unexpectedly touching.

"Vincent and the Doctor" is my favorite episode of Doctor Who, bar none. It was written by Richard Curtis, who also wrote for Not the Nine O'Clock News, Blackadder, and Mr. Bean. Also the Musée d'Orsay is a wonderful museum and you should add it to your bucket list.
