“In 1964, Buster Keaton was offered the most serious role of his career. Samuel Beckett was working on his only screenplay—a short film called Film depicting a character who, like a cockroach, seems terrified of being seen. Beckett calls this character “O” for being the “Object” of “E,” the “Eye” of the camera that’s obsessively following him. Beckett first wanted Chaplin but finally turned to Keaton, whose Great Stone Face and hapless but intrepid character have often been compared to Beckett. The playwright had previously asked Keaton to play the beleaguered slave Lucky in the American premiere of Waiting for Godot, but Keaton, bewildered by the script, turned him down. The new DVD also includes the memorable 1961 television version of Waiting for Godot, directed by Alan Schneider, with two great comic actors, Zero Mostel and Burgess Meredith, performing Beckett’s existential vaudeville.”

laugh from Eli herself. “Eli?” Nico wraps her arms around Eli and pulls her
closer, “You think too much sometimes.”
“And you don’t
think at all.”
“I have you
to do all the thinking for me.” A quick retort, banters that she has missed for
a couple of centuries.
Eli sinks into the embrace, another memory to be immortalized forever. “I don’t
say it enough but,” Another kiss to remember. “I love you.”
i drew millie from my “what id do if i made su” au-ish thing
she’d have new bandages each ep because shes an outdoorsy run around kid (ex: dirty shoes) and she probably gets a lot of scrapes
basically she read about the history of gems on earth and how elusive they are to meet face to face and tons of blurry photos of green women running from the camera and subsequently became obsessed with space, rocks, and space rocks
the gem family keeps arguing over whether or not shes ready to use a sword yet. shes so small. she can barely lift it, blue quartz, hows she gonna use it in battle?
