Il materiale di origine: Nicholas Hunt, Matteo Prandoni / Oscar Isaac and Elvira Lind at after party for “Man on a Ledge” at Acme in New York City, NY. (19th January, 2012)

That one time Elvira picked up this sad little man at a party and made him smile…😱😂 And the cutest move is that Oscar put his Llewyn Davis jacket on her because she was cold. What a gentleman. 😊👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Holy crap they got some bomb food here! I got the Katsu moco. It is a loco moco, but with chicken katsu. Oh, and then i had them put some kimchi fried rice as the base! Geez, what a creation! The spam and cheese waffles are a must here. The saltiness of the spam to go with the sweetness of the syrup…..mmMmMMmm! And the pineapple slices with li-hing powder is amazing. Super sweet pineapple with salty powder! I’ve been missing this combo!

Not My Job: Actor Oscar Isaac On Folk Music Vs. Filk Music
Isaac plays a folk singer in the new film Inside Llewyn Davis, so we're going to ask him three questions about filk music — a sub-genre written by and for science fiction fans, sometimes in homage to their favorite characters and stories.

My sister, not on Tumblr, has reminded me that over two years ago, the future Poe Dameron was on Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me for “Not My Job” discussing Inside Lwellyn Davis–and the questions were about filk music. And were not at all inaccurate!

(My million-dollar question is what input Peter himself, a rather epic nerd, had on the questions, especially in coming up with the incorrect answers.)

So, there’s that.

TESTimony -

At the young age of 16, I started consuming alcohol. Around that time in my life my whole world was flipped upside down. My family found out my older sister was being molested by our step father and as a result, I fell into depression, I also dropped out of high school and I started behavior that was so unlike me. I was so lost, I was hurting inside and felt like the life I knew was all a LIE, I was broken for my family, I was broken for my sister. So I started drinking and the feeling was addicting. There were nights I blacked out and don’t remember a thing, nights where my mother tried waking me up and the alcohol had me in a mode of unconsciousness. But this is what I wanted, to black out the pain and the hurt. Along with being addicted to alcohol I was running to men and women for sex, for that connection. I told my mother I was bisexual. My heart was filled w| lust and I was looking for love in all the wrong places - and when my relationships didn’t last, I constantly cried to God asking “Why haven’t I found someone to love me?”

* I pray that Christ will live in your hearts by faith and that your life will be strong in love and be built on love. And I pray that you and all God’s holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ’s love—how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is. Christ’s love is greater than anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will be able to know that love. Then you can be filled with the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19 NCV)

I lived life in the world for 20 years. Even though I knew God, I knew I was a sinner, I knew if I kept living this way I would never make it to heaven. I often prayed for God to forgive me for my ways, that are so unpleasing to Him. But I also continued on living a sinful life.

* God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. (Ecclesiastes 12:14 NLT)

June 2013 I made a life decision to walk w| The lord, with no turning back to my old ways. I wanted to destroy everything that connected me to my old life; so I deleted the music, stopped cursing, stopped drinking and made the decision to be celibate until marriage. I started to renew my mind and my spirit by reading the word and getting deeper w| The Lord. I was on fire for God. I was in love w| Him.

* “I believe in His goodness & what He’s saved me for is so much greater than what He’s saved me from.”

In October my church was holding a “Fall Camp Retreat” and I was blessed with a sponsorship that allowed me to go. I was super excited! My whole Fall Camp experience was amazing, I felt Gods presence like never before. Going home, we were warned that the enemy will attack us because we all went so much deeper w| God during this retreat. The enemy made sure to tempt me w| my ultimate struggle, liquor.

* When people are tempted, they should not say, “God is tempting me.” Evil cannot tempt God, and God himself does not tempt anyone. But people are tempted when their own evil desire leads them away and traps them. This desire leads to sin, and then the sin grows and brings death.
(James 1:13-15 NCV)

I remember this day vividly, I was at my friends house after the Fall Camp retreat and the enemy tempted me w| wanting to drink so strongly, I felt a sudden urge, I even tasted the liquor in my mouth. In my head, I rebuked every thought and temptation with prayer. I walked home and went into the fridge… Low and behold, just when I thought I fought my battle and won, there was a huge unopened bottle of liquor in the fridge just waiting for me to stumble and drink it. It seemed like there was nothing else in that fridge but that liquor bottle. I slammed the door shut and laughed! I knew that was the enemy! I knew he was trying to attack me w| these traps. But I would not fall into his trap - I took the bottle and dumped it down the toilet while singing worship to my Lord. Nothing in the world felt more empowering than winning that battle.

* If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. (1 Corinthians 10:12, 13 NLT)

I’m happy to say it’s almost been a year I haven’t picked up a drink. I’ve been sober minded and kept my focus on my promises to God. Don’t get me wrong; every day is a battle, every day is a struggle but I keep strong with constant prayer and standing firm on Gods promises he has spoken over my life.

As I got deeper and deeper with God I felt more & more at home & at peace. God filled every empty space in my heart. He was everything I was looking for in every man & woman I laid down w|. I learned & experienced his love & faithfulness, I found a love that is so sweet, a love that’s unchanging & that is all I ever needed. I found it all at the cross. All along I’ve been crying out to God “Why haven’t I found someone to love me?” God has been showing me, “JAYLEEN, I LOVE YOU, I loved you at your darkest. I’ve saved you from so much that you didn’t see. Let me show you that the love your heart has always desired…is in Me.”

* “Agape” is the kind of love God has toward His Son and the human race. It’s a love that sacrifices, the love that we see in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son…”(NIV)

I feel like so many young girls turn to alcohol & turn to sexual impurity w| men or woman to fill a void, or to find something they’re missing and to cover the pain they want to forget. If only more young women knew the love we have in Jesus Christ. If only more young women knew someone loved you so much he sacrificed his life for you on the cross so you can have everlasting life if you only believed in him. If only more young girls experienced Gods love that is so unexplainable! Then so many young women wouldn’t be as lost as I was.

I admit I was lost before I accepted Christ as my lord & savior. Once I left everything in the past & chose him, he helped me drop all my bad habits - he renewed my mind daily & started to heal my broken heart, he started to nurse my wounds. He showed me that He is the father I will never physically have. He showed me He is the lover I’ve always been looking for. He brought people in my life that I would now call my family, people that encourage me to stay in my word & stay strong in prayer, people who lead me to Christ & care about my walk.

* Jesus answered, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me. (John 14:6 NCV)

The enemy use to tell me I didn’t have a testimony I can use. All I went through didn’t matter because it wouldn’t help young women or even any young man in the world to come to Christ. Once I realized that was a lie from the enemy, I accepted my testimony, every embarrassing detail, every shameful part that I regret, every heartbreaking moment, every single detail. It can & it will be used. God can turn every bad thing I’ve been through around, for His good & for His glory. & I pray that my transparency w| my SORRY SOCIETY I am so far above rubies influences someone out there, in any way shape or form. I pray that someone will relate & someone sees Gods mercy, grace & LOVE all over my testimony.

I’ve been rescued by love. I am now free because of love. There is only one love that can break chains, only one love that can heal wounds, only one love that can rescue everyone from sin, that love comes from Jesus Christ.

“Love came down & rescued me, love came down & it set me free, I am yours, I am forever yours.” (Love Came Down- Angie Miller)
