You meet instead a funny, self-deprecating man who arrives in jeans and an old sweater and kicks off his shoes. He starts out a little fast and nervous; joking about his star dressing room; saying that in Cincinnati, where he won raves for this production earlier this year, his character wore Hugo Boss and here he wears Armani, not that he can see the difference. He talks about those windows to the actor’s heart, the photos on the makeup mirror. That’s the grandmother who raised him; that’s Michele, whom he married at 23, on their honeymoon.

But he gets to the stuff that’s been tearing him up, the stuff that most leading men would never discuss, pretty early, almost as if he wants to make a public statement. He’s been reading a book that suggests sitting quietly for 10 minutes a day and just seeing what feelings come up, he says, and “basically, there’s a lot of sadness underneath, sadness and anxiety.” (NY Times, 2006)

ya on a scale of one to ten bye

What would you like? I’d like my money’s worth.
                                       Try explaining a life bundled with episodes of this—
        swallowing mud, swallowing glass, the smell of blood
on the first four knuckles.
                                                    We pull our boots on with both hands
but we can’t punch ourselves awake and all I can do
                   is stand on the curb and say Sorry
                                        about the blood in your mouth. I wish it was mine.


Ok, let’s just talk about this for a second…

These were me and my friend’s Red Tour shirts. Our whole outfit was a “Holy Ground Cafe” barista (combining Holy Ground and Begin Again). It was my friend’s idea to write “Brewed in NY Since 1989” because we’re from NY and Taylor and my friend were born in 1989. Little did we know the next album would be called 1989 and Taylor would move to/have a song about NY.

Basically what I’m trying to say is, the two of us practically called it.

We’re so excited for our next #collection we can’t even bear it!! A lil hint of what’s yet to come for your perfect BBMILK #summer!

The Bluestone Lane Collective Café | Greenwich, NY: 

Basically, every time I try to take photos of Hanna. Blurry because she’s always laughing. :)

when multiple members of the winning alliance at your regional get the other awards that qualify them for champs and you’re torn between being really happy for them and wishing other amazing teams could have also qualified 

  • Ta:...basically the "everything is not ours to begin with" kind of thought makes our life easier.
  • Ra:It is easier, but then you won't strive for anything. Like, I missed the deadline and I'd say, "It's okay it's not mine to begin with anyway"
  • Ta:Well in that case you didn't even try. You should put an effort if you really want it, shouldn't you?
  • Ra:Why would I bother to try if it's not even mine to begin with? Justification much.
  • Ta:Because effort can change your destiny.
