Sometimes, in internet land, you come across something you just can't put down - a photograph on tumblr without a credit, a song on a dodgy youtube clip made of cheesy stills that you play in a background tab the invisible bike lolcat and so on. Silly things on their own, that over time create a mental collage of what the internet means to us personally.
Then other times the internet affords us wisdom we might never have heard elsewhere, snippets of something that can change our lives.
One such thing for me is this post from Swiss Miss (I'm re-posting in full with genuine respect):
That one line 'I wish I would have embraced and trusted the entrepreneurial side in me earlier' has been on loop in my head every day for weeks now. It has inspired so much confidence in me to go out and achieve what I want to, and to take business risks even though I am not a business person 'by trade'. This is one moment of internet inspiration I needed to repost to remember forever. Thank you Tina Roth Eisenberg.
In a Daily Beast interview, Ridley Scott talks of a Blade Runner sequel with a female lead and gives this impressive quote on his experience with female action leads in the past:
"I read with slightly raised eyebrows the surprise and the power about having a female lead instead of a male lead, and it refocused my awareness about what we’ve done. It was a calculated risk as well in a film that’s fundamentally a traditional “who’s going to be the last one standing in a big, dark house.” In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which was significantly frightening for me at that particular point cause I looked at it just prior to making Alien, that girl was still standing at the end covered in blood, but she’d survived rather than won. The difference with Ripley was that she had won and survived."
