FUCK
Jared Leto and Nest CEO Tony Fadell On Creativity, Art, And Commerce
FC: Jared, a few years back you basically stopped being in movies, stopped doing this thing that had made you famous and successful. Was that a hard decision to make?
JL: I think it was about focus. I knew that I needed to commit everything to music at that point in my life. I’d been making music longer than I had been acting, but at that time it was a very challenging thing to do for a lot of different reasons, so I knew I needed that energy and that focus and that commitment. Commitment means sacrifice. I just charged ahead and did what I had to do.
Because losing a job and losing income means things are going to start
getting really expensive really fast. Tony and Ziva decide to live
together to save some money now that they’re both out of a job. Romance
ensues. Spoilers for “Damned if you Do,” AU from there.
It had been a
week since they’d resigned, a week of unemployment before Ziva arrived at
Tony’s door. She hadn’t called or texted first, in fact, it was the first he’d
heard from her all day.
customary for the two of them, to just arrive at the other’s place, so when it
happened, he knew there must be something wrong. Wordlessly, he stepped aside
and let her in, and wordlessly, she stepped past him and sat on his sofa.
Well, okay, he thought as he closed the door
behind her, securing the lock.
He went to the
kitchen and grabbed two glasses of water, bringing them out to the living room.
She accepted hers silently, taking a sip and placing it on a coaster on the
nearby end table.
maybe she would talk after she had a few minutes to get comfortable, but he
could see that she wasn’t going to be the first to speak, so he decided to try
to coax her out of herself, carefully prodding until she shared what was
Gibbs?” he tried.
She took an
inward breath, and he could see that she was thinking about what she should say
before she spoke. “No.”
sort of. But that is not the reason I am here.”
He looked at
her pointedly, as if to say, Care to elaborate then, sweetheart? She
dropped her gaze first, then began to speak again.
Steve has this really annoying habit of not asking for help when he needs it he wants to do everything himself to prove he can and in early days the relationship when he has a flashback he asks Tony for help and Tony then really knows Steve loves him
omg and imagine tony learns quick not to ask if steve needs help because that just makes it worse, so he has to bite his tongue and sit on his hands and let steve figure it out by himself even though it’s killing him. anD THEN IMAGINE STEVE ACTUALLY ASKING FOR HELP AND HOW FAST TONY WOULD SCRAMBLE TO HIS SIDE TO GIVE HIM WHATEVER THE HELL HE NEEDS LIKE DAMN STEVE YES JUST TELL ME WHAT TO DO AND IT IS DONE MY SWEET.
THE PLOT: Deckard Shaw seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his family for his comatose brother.
THE RECOMMENDATION: Now having seen all the Furious movies, I feel very accomplished and have a better understanding of why these nitrous-fueled maniacs have captured the minds of people around the world. While I have a feeling some of my reasons for enjoying these films are different than others, the fact of the matter is Furious 7, like many of the previous entries, is firing on all cylinders. Unfortunately, like Fast Five, Furious 7 fires on them for a bit too long and doesn’t quite stick the landing. Family, and the idea of loyalty, plays a major role in this film as it dealt with the passing of Paul Walker, who plays Brian O’Connor, during the production of the film. If you’re unaware of his fate in the films, I’ll leave that unspoiled, but I will say that knowing the outcome of the actor was detrimental to the outcome of the character, much more than I thought would be possible.
Furious 7 does however deliver the biggest, baddest, and most jaw-dropping action scenes in the franchise and does so with style. It is no contest in terms of scale, execution, and pure pleasure watching cars parachute from the sky and jump between the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi among others. There’s a few steps back from Fast & Furious 6, but this is no doubt a high-octane joy ride that will leave you satisfied at the end.
