Aleksandr Petrov’s animated adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea.
Regarding the novel, Hemingway states in his Art of Fiction interview,The Old Man and the Sea could have been over a thousand pages long and had every character in the village in it and all the processes of how they made their living, were born, educated, bore children, et cetera. That is done excellently and well by other writers. In writing you are limited by what has already been done satisfactorily. So I have tried to learn to do something else. First I have tried to eliminate everything unnecessary to conveying experience to the reader so that after he or she has read something it will become a part of his or her experience and seem actually to have happened. This is very hard to do and I’ve worked at it very hard.
The first thing which comes to my mind when I think about George Harrison is his incredible warmth. I know this sounds ridiculous, but even though I never met him, whenever I read stories from Olivia, Dhani, Pattie, the Harrison family, his many friends, and fans lucky enough to have met him, it’s like I can feel his love through their love for him, and with that feeling it’s as though he’s alive.
His music gives me the most peaceful comforting feeling and always helps to calm me down when I get anxious. I especially love listening to the demo versions of his songs where his gorgeous haunting voice is only accompanied by his guitar. If I close my eyes I can imagine him sitting there next to me, giving me a private concert.
George means the world to me. He’s taught me so much, and I love and admire him more than I could ever put into words. I’m going to try my best not to be sad on this day and will instead post some of my favourite stories about him to celebrate his life and what a wonderful person he was.
As George would say, he’s still here - just not in a physical form.
My poor succulent couldn’t handle the lack of sunlight in my room :/ I’ll have to get another
Jimi Hendrix would have been 71 years old today. Take a look at photos of the guitar god.
