i remember around 2016 people used to rationalize harry's abandonment of social media on the death of matt, and how maybe he had personal issues he wanted to keep quiet because the behavior was just so unlike him. it's what i believed for the longest time. now it's like nah, here's the documentary i was working on! i'm so super harry rn and i still won't acknowledge my fans on social media! and it's just a big slap in the face. everyone is acting like what we thought before never happened like.

Anon, I’m still confused about why people are stanning the very image they claimed to hate two years ago.

I mean, I’m OK with it, but tell me why it’s different now, you know?

And maybe admit that now you’re not so sure everything you hated can be blamed on Anyone Other Than Harry.

“Taryn Brumfitt felt insecure about her body, so she decided to do something about it. She entered a body building competition, and lost a lot of weight. However, she realized she still felt insecure, and after gaining weight back she posted a before and after photo saying that she liked her heavier self. Her photo gained 3.6 million likes. When some people berated her for promoting obesity she decided she needed to do more to spread her message that we should accept ourselves the way that we are, and now she’s crowdfunding a documentary."

I looked at the time and it’s like 10:18 (A brief summation of my day, which went by way too fast), and like, I’d kind of like to drink a beer, but pretty much if I’m not out the door by 9:45, I’m going nowhere, so now i’m just here drinking seltzer and watching a documentary about Frederick the Great. 

Not only did Sense8 get renewed for season 2, but Netflix also released a documentary about the creation of the show. Go forth and watch!

I’m Still Here | 2010 | dir. Casey Affleck

Even though we now know that this entire “documentary” isn’t a real documentary and that Joaquin Pheonix’s “captured breakdown” was in fact just one long method performance, it’s still a film that contains a crazy good method performance from one of the best actors currently working today, and overall I found the film completely captivating and occasionally even moving, so it’s definitely worth a watch.

THE "WHAT PROJECT SHOULD I BE WORKING ON?" SPREAD

I’m in that special and wonderful place where I’ve started a lot of projects but I’m not giving them equal attention. I’m a freelancer, which means I’ll have a good amount of time to really dig into a project before I realize I need to take work.  After that’s done, I face the uphill battle of reconnecting to the personal projects I put on hold.   It’s a vicious cycle that gets harder with time.  I know I can’t work on all these at the same time so developed a simple spread to compare and contrast each of my projects.

Just do one row of 6-cards for each project:

  1. Overall card for the project itself.
  2. What is the Pro?
  3. What is the Con?
  4. How will this project further my career (move toward goals)?
  5. What are the obstacles?
  6. Advice (you can throw down as many cards as you need here.)

I have three projects swirling around right now:  A documentary (row 1),  my own tarot deck (row 2), and opening a tarot space in Brooklyn (row 3.) Here’s what I got from El Gran Tarot Esoterico.

It’s pretty hard to ignore row 3, TAROT SPACE, which begins with the ACE OF WANDS.   When it comes to projects or ventures, the Ace of Wands is pretty much the créme de la créme of the tarot.  The 3 of WANDS, the pro, suggests excellent collaborative energy and taming of wild impulses.  LA PICOTA (hanged man) reversed is the con. Perhaps this isn’t the most personal of projects I’ve got going.  If my goal is TEMPERANCE, then a tarot space may help me work on what’s out of balance. The obstacle would be finding a co-op of people who have compatible energy. Advice is the 6 OF WANDS reversed.  I’m perplexed.

The documentary project in Row 1 has potential, even though EL CICLO (JUDGEMENT) reversed suggests it’s an unending process with an unclear resolution.  The 7 of CUPS, the pro, indicates a very receptive project with room for expansion and new ideas to fill these cups.   The PAGE OF SWORDS REVERSED could be suggesting this isn’t the best time to take this project back up.   More strategizing?  THE DEVIL REVERSED brings me closer to my goals.  It kind of needs to happen. The 10 OF SWORDS REVERSED is the obstacle.  That never-ending cycle!! I started this project 10 years ago, has it become more of a burden than a pleasure?   The 9 OF WANDS could be advising me to focus on the lighting up that magic lamp (connect with the original passion again) before diving back in.

The tarot deck project in Row 2 seems the most problematic.   I’m not psyched seeing THE TOWER at the obstacle and the 10 of WANDS as the con.   This perhaps means the project is overwhelming right now.  I have been struggling with trying to drain the Rider-Waite system from my psyche.    The PAGE OF CUPS REVERSED is the card of the project itself, and it feels like deep contemplation that’s really not going anywhere.   The advice is to stop spinning my wheels as shown by the PAGE OF COINS reversed.  This feels like me not being myself or connecting with my own voice.   Perhaps the TAROT SPACE needs to start before the cards are taken back up as a project?

JAI COURTNEY [Eric] was born and raised in the northwest region of Sydney where he developed an early interest in acting. He participated in a state sponsored drama program for young people, which led him to audition for the National Institute of Dramatic Art after high school. In 2004 he joined the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) a well-respected institution in Perth from where he graduated in 2008.

Following graduation, Jai quickly landed guest star roles on two hit Australian shows, Packed to the Rafters and All Saints and later that year he won a Theatre Critics Award for Best Newcomer for his performance in The Turning at the Perth Theatre Company.

In 2009 Jai landed the sought after role of Varro in the international Starz hit television series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The character of Varro became the closest confidante to Spartacus until his death in the tenth episode. Fans of the show created an uproar over Varro’s death and to this day continue to lament about it on the many Spartacus fan sites and blogs.

Last spring, Jai was seen in the box office hit film Divergent, alongside Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet. The film, directed by Neil Burger, is an adaptation of the hit sci-fi novel of the same name.

In October he co-starred with Joel Edgerton and Tom Wilkinson in Felony. Jai played a young police detective who suspects Edgerton’s character is lying about a crime he’s committed and he gradually builds a criminal case against him. The film had its World Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

In December Jai co-starred in Unbroken directed by Angelina Jolie. The Universal film is based on the unbreakable spirit of Louis Zamperini, the former Olympic track prodigy who endured unimaginable hardship as a WWII POW at the hands of Japanese prison guards. Jai plays ‘Cup,’ a WWII veteran pilot who gets caught in tenacious midair gunfight alongside Zamperini.

This year, in March Jai will be seen in The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second film in the Divergent series.

In April, he co-stars in The Water Diviner, Russell Crowe’s feature directorial debut about an Australian man who travels to Turkey to attempt to locate the bodies of his three sons, who were killed there during WWI. Jai portrays ‘Lt. Col. Cyril Hughes’ who is tasked with organizing the effort to identify the tens of thousands of soldiers killed at Gallipoli.

In July he stars as Kyle Reese alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the sci-fi film Terminator: Genisys. This is the first film in a stand-alone trilogy.

Most recently Jai completed filming the psychological thriller MAN DOWN in which he plays ‘Devin Roberts’, war veteran and best friend of ‘Gabriel Drummer’ played by Shia LaBeouf. Directed by Dito Montiel, the film tells the story of a haunted Afghanistan war veteran who attempts to come to terms with his past while searching for his family in a post-apocalyptic America.

Jai will next film SUICIDE SQUAD based on the DC Comic Book in which he plays ‘Captain Boomerang’ alongside Will Smith and Jared Leto.

In addition to these roles, Jai has been working tirelessly to raise awareness and the funds needed to produce the feature-length documentary BE HERE NOW about his friend the late Andy Whitfield, who passed away 18 months after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It was Andy’s desire to have this documentary produced in order to help and inspire others dealing with cancer or any of life’s challenges. The documentary is helmed by Academy Award® nominated documentarian Lilibet Foster.
