@alexanderssskarsbrow wishing you a very happy birthday full of love and wonderful surprises. I also wish you, and your family, an awesome and joyful year too, lv and tight hugs, Suzanne ♥x


Ok so as I said I have many feeling about this, and they are not good, I’m going to talk about aother video first then come back to this one.

Some info first, this is Laine Ashker, or Lainey on Insta, and the horse is Debakey he’s a 4 year old Holsteiner.

Ok she got the ride on him on Apr 20th, and a week later she posts this video to her instagram- 

A post shared by Lainey Ashker (@laineyea) on Apr 27, 2017 at 11:27am PDT

Let’s go through this. The first jump looks to be 3′ or so, why on earth are they jumping a 4 year old that hight?
He’s obviously over jumping it by a lot, but she knows he over jumps smaller stuff, in the first video she posted of him they were jumping him over smaller stuff then that and he was over jumping it. So why would you put the jump up and make it a oxer when you know he over jumps? He obviously doesn’t know how much effort he needs to put into getting over the jumps, so keep him at the smaller hight until he figures it out then raise the jumps, he’s only 4 years old there is no need to rush him like this.

Then the second jump in the video, here’s a still-

So I’d like to remind you that’s she’s had him for a week at this point, that he’s only 4, and that he’s not very sure about “normal” jumps. So all of that begs the question, why are introducing him to him to stuff like skinnys? To me a reaction like this would tell me I’d rushed him, and that he’s not ready for things like this. I’d certainly not post it to Instagram being proud of it.

Ok and finally to the first video. At this point she knows he will do weird things when faced with new things, like in the skinny video, so why on earth would you ask him to do a bank jump? Especially a two part one, she is so fucking lucky he managed to catch himself before the second bank, he would have landed on his neck. And when he landed that front left twists so much that when I watched this for the first time a had one horrible moment when I though he had broken that leg. I also want to know why she didn’t just take him down the second back by itself, it’s smaller, and if he did someone like this there is no chance of him hurting himself on the second part of the element.

So basically I think he’s to young to being doing any of this, she’s rushing him badly, and that he may end up injured if she keeps pushing him.

@clickerhorse you wanted me to write about this so here it is! Sorry I didn’t yesterday but I got home and crashed.

DAY 3317

Jalsa, Mumbai               Apr 27,  2017               Thu 11:53 pm

Motionless .. still .. eyes shut in perpetuity .. a form on wooden logs .. covered .. flames about .. and a life turned to ashes ..

I first saw him entering the Ajanta Arts office in Bandra, of Sunil Dutt, where I was making my way to seek a job .. a most good looking handsome young man .. a body in elegant frame ..  a swagger in his walk .. and a gentle smile as he looked towards me .. it was 1969 .. he was working in the Ajanta Arts film, ‘Man ka Meet’ .. I was struggling to get a role, any role, anywhere ..

In time we met again within the same precincts .. he and I were working in the same film of Dutt Saheb, ‘Reshma aur Shera’ .. look trials in the office of the film .. travel and sittings on the story .. Thapa saheb, Ali Raza, Sukhdev and those all night meets, most novel for me .. my first brush with the way the film industry functioned .. the time for the shoot and the excitement of travel on a location in Jaisalmer .. the months we spent together and after .. driving in the scorching heat of the deserts of Rajasthan to the location, Pochina, in the sands of nowhere near civilisation .. living under one tent - Vinod, Ranjit, Thapa Saheb, Ali Raza saheb about seven of us in the same tent .. then similar number at a make shift residence in the city of Jaisalmer - Amrish Puri joining us in that room filled with all of us, living laughing, working .. carefree days .. the rigors of that location and its environs ..

On return from the location his continued connect with me .. he a big star .. but always most humble with selfless concern for others .. the rides he would take me on, in his recently acquired Beetle VolksWagen, yellow in color .. his generosity in smuggling me into the only Disco Club in the city at the Taj, where he was a member, and I not even remotely in any state to become one .. his marriage to Geetanjali, whom he and we all fondly called Gitly .. the birth of his sons, Rahul and Akshay, whom he often brought on to the sets of AAA ..

That incident at a restaurant in SoBo, where someone made a snide remark, and he took him on, getting knifed in the arm during the scuffle, but being victorious .. 

The sudden passing of his Father soon after our work together in ‘Reshma’ .. I being with him in his hour of grief .. and then .. the amazing chemistry of the several historic films that we did together .. an association that was so loveable and considerate .. spending time in each others make up rooms, sharing our lunch, just biding time and talking of all kinds of talk .. the late shoot pack ups and the beyond midnight drives to Juhu Beach, to just sit with our directors and he to have a drink, and I mine ( I used to in those days ) .. 

That guilt ridden incident when I had to fling a glass in a scene towards him and it accidentally hitting his chin, cutting him open right through to his teeth .. the remorse regret and guilt within me to date for that unforgiving accident .. rushing him to his doctor, late at night, getting stitched up, driving with him to his house to settle him in and to just keep apologising for this horrific accidental slip ..

The sudden brush with him as he ran up the stairs in Breach Candy Hospital, where I had gone to visit a friend, and his anger and grave faced expression - he learning of the accident of his close relative on a motorbike, and him wanting to be with her as she struggled for her life .. 

His friendly gesture of appearing in a film of mine ‘Zameer’ .. the times we spent on it at various locations .. the most rigorous being action sequences shot in the interiors of Udaipur, well into the night and dawn, with that most respected Action Coordinator Khanna Saheb .. after the sequence was filmed, Khanna Saheb sitting with us in the early hours of the morning and emotionally expressing his great joy in working with the two of us .. 

“give me these two artists in an action drama and I shall extract the best ever seen” .. he would commend us  ..

The Hotel in Udaipur and our rooms distanced .. me away in one lonely corner and he in another .. I call him in the middle of the night and express the loneliness .. he inviting me over and saying to stay with him in his room .. for a newcomer you cannot imagine what this meant to me to be treated like this by a star ..

His confident charm was infectious .. there was always an optimistic swagger about him .. a smile .. a laugh .. a casualness .. nothing seemed to disturb him one felt .. the relaxed ‘cool’ of today’s times .. 

The jigs we would invent on set .. impromptu songs .. when 5 Librans working together in the same film at the same scene would break into - Shammi Kapoor ji, Amjad, Kader Khan, Vinod and I - our little ditty, on the sets of ManMohan Desai’s “Parvarish”  ..

‘We are crazy Librans .. **%#@!! up this film” .. !!! 

And the uproarious laughter that followed each shot that we gave together ..

And then one day his sudden decision to the following of Rajneesh .. his passion and the strength of his belief .. his sincerity in his following, right to California where Rajneesh had shifted .. I met him in Los Angeles during this period on a stray visit, and he spent hours at a common friend’s place explaining to me what the movement meant not just to him, but to the World in general ..

And this afternoon that association of 48 years came to an end .. 

This man .. this body of enthused energy and giving .. this friend .. this colleague .. this ever smiling swagger infested individual, lay motionless ..

No one walked the way he did .. no one had the presence he had in a crowded room .. no one could lighten up the surroundings he was in, like him .. no one ..

'We're the geeks, the prostitutes': Asian American actors on Hollywood's barriers
Films like Ghost in the Shell have fueled debate over whitewashing, while roles are few for Asian Americans – and when they are wanted on the casting couch, it’s often to play offensive stereotypes

Honored to have provided some choice terrible breakdowns for this article. Huge thanks to Sam Levin for writing!

Unseen Sylvia Plath letters claim domestic abuse by Ted Hughes
Unpublished correspondence from the poet to her former therapist records allegation of beating and says that he told her he wished she was dead
By Danuta Kean

“Sylvia Plath alleged Ted Hughes beat her two days before she miscarried their second child and that Hughes wanted her dead, unpublished letters reveal. The two accusations are among explosive claims in unseen correspondence written in the bitter aftermath of one of literature’s most famous and destructive marriages.

Written between 18 February 1960 and 4 February 1963, a week before her death, the letters cover a period in Plath’s life that has remained elusive to readers and scholars alike. While the American writer, who was living in England during that time, was a prolific letter writer and had kept detailed journals since the age of 11, after her death Hughes said his wife’s journals from this time were lost, including the last volume, which he said he destroyed to protect their children, Frieda and Nicholas.

Sent to Dr Ruth Barnhouse – the model for Dr Nolan in Plath’s autobiographical novel The Bell Jar, who treated the writer in the US after her first documented attempt to kill herself in August 1953 – the correspondence is understood to be one of Plath’s only surviving uncensored accounts of her last months, in which she produced some of her most famous poetry, including the collection Ariel.”

Stavo tornando dalla pausa caffè quando vicino ai bidoni della differenziata mi lascio coinvolgere dallo strano combattimento tra una vecchina carina e un ape. Lei aveva appena buttato il suo sacchetto dell’umido, l’ape evidentemente aveva scelto quel bidone come sua nuova casa, forse aveva in mente di portare qualche regalo speciale una volta di ritorno verso la sua regina. Non posso saperlo. La vecchina si mette ad inveire contro l’ape, agitando un sacchetto della spesa di quelli robusti che sponsorizzano qualche supermercato. L’ape si difende come può, svolazza, forse le indirizza qualche insulto ma poco importa, quella è casa sua, per me ha ragione lei. Nonostante la vecchina sia molto carina nel suo modo di accanarsi in una battaglia inutile, devo dire che non sarò mai dalla sua parte.
Al café/pasticceria siciliana solito dove vado ho iniziato a notare una cosa strana. Non importa a che ora io vada per bere il caffè (faccio una pausa caffè al giorno, non di più, superata la soglia dei due caffè non riesco a dormire, a meno che non rilegga le cose che scrivo), seduta fuori o su qualche sedia all’interno, vedo sempre la stessa donna. La mia pausa dura all’incirca 12 minuti. Che io vada non appena apre alle 11, lei è lì. Verso le 12:30, sempre lì. Alle 14? Ancora lì. Dopo le 15? Certamente. Dopo le 16? Non lo posso sapere, non posso bere caffè dopo le 16 altrimenti nemmeno le cose che scrivo possono aiutarmi a prendere sonno. Questa donna sta sempre lì. E devo dire di averla notata spesso sta cosa delle persone che vivono nei bar, che non hanno altra vita al di fuori dello stare in un luogo di passaggio frequentato da persone di passaggio. Non mi spiego perché. Servono solo caffè e dolci, non alcolici. Potrei capire fosse un’alcolista. Ma una dipendenza da cannoli non l’ho mai sentita. Sta fuori e saluta, beve qualcosa. Ed è sempre lì. Il mio lasso di tempo di 12 minuti, posso sovrapporlo ad un qualunque istante delle 5 ore che mi sono concesse dalla mia scarsa tolleranza alla caffeina e il risultato è che la becco ogni volta e mi domando sempre che cazzo fa nella vita.
Probabilmente anche lei pensa la stessa cosa di me.
Non sa che nella vita io scrivo cose utilissime come una serie di pensieri inutili su di lei.
Nel bar vicino casa mia accade anche altro materiale per le mie elucubrazioni. Ogni giorno alle 17 apre e puntuale arriva questo personaggio vestito sempre uguale: jeans blu, polo nera, barba bianca, capello bianco, pancia sferica voluminosa. È il primo ad arrivare, mette fuori i tavolini, quindi posso dedurre sia una figura tipo il proprietario, poi prende una birra e si mette sempre allo stesso tavolino a bere una birra dopo l’altra e a fumare ogni sigaretta fino alla chiusura. Se piove, potete stare sicuri di vederlo fuori lo stesso. Ci mette solo un poco di più a finire le birre. Se è freddo, sarà sempre la fuori, sempre solo con la stessa polo nera e gli stessi jeans blu. Anche questa persona cattura la mia fantasia e ogni volta che la vedo mi dico che devo andare a parlarci. Fargli delle domande. Ad esempio non so se è andato in ferie quest’anno. O se quelle per lui sono ferie. Se quando va in ferie fa anche la stessa cosa e sceglie una meta turistica e poi si piazza in un baretto scrauso di una piazzetta scrausa a bere finché non è ora di tornare quasi sotto casa mia a farlo. Se ha altri abiti nell’armadio. O se il suo armadio ha dozzine di polo nere tutte uguali. Oppure se è bloccato in una specie di situazione alla Bill Murray nel film della marmotta, e ogni mattina lui si sveglia rivivendo la stessa giornata ma applicato alla realtà, solo per lui è la stessa giornata (un caso di demenza avanzata), mentre il resto del mondo va avanti normalmente. E regolarmente si dimentica di fare la lavatrice e per questo indossa sempre gli stessi vestiti.
Una vecchina che litiga con un ape. Una cannolodipendente. Un uomo senza tempo. Bene, anche oggi ho fatto di tutto con la mente tranne che lavorare.
