Manuel Moncayo: Diary
Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters.
“When it started raining and lightning and the crowd didn’t disperse, my energy level shot up,” said Kwame Thompson, an attorney in Atlanta and St. Louis. “It was a peaceful demonstration that was against police brutality and in support of Mike Brown and his family.”
This feels unprecedented.
Jeff Goldblum circa 1980
I believe that sexuality exists on a spectrum, mostly, and mine sits in a little grassy spot with a sudden jag to the left at a sign that reads Goldblum.
“They are taking control of the water supply. They are breaking dams, and flooding crops, and destroying the food supply of an entire country. They are forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes. It seems that there is a hand behind all of this. They are very calculating. They are making their moves very carefully to destroy the human soul. They want to rob an entire people of food and water and homes, as if to wipe them from the pages of history. And when they take the homes from these people, the children have no place to play. The children have no place to be young. No physical space, and no emotional space. They have no place to be a child, so their only frame of reference is war and fighting. And when that’s all they know, how can they grow up to be doctors and teachers? All they can possibly know is the desire for revenge and hatred for their enemies. I wish people would understand that Iraq is filled with intelligent, civilized people. This was the cradle of civilization in the Ancient World. Even the Garden of Eden was here. These aren’t dust covered, nameless refugees being forced from their homes. The refugee camps are filled with architects, and musicians, and teachers.”

Look, I was going to put this up here with a joke about how we come to nature and all look at our phones. I was even going to take a lot of time to come up with something clever enough to make it seem like that joke was the real, and sole, reason I put this up here. But let’s be real. That would only be a lame cover up for the real reason I post this here: my lake-casual chic is so fucking on point here.
dammit, hammit. this is perfect.
Allison Janney is best known for her role as White House Press Secretary C.J. Cregg on The West Wing. Now she’s nominated for two Emmys—one for her role as Margaret Scully on Masters of Sex and the other for the CBS sitcom Mom. From steamy sex scenes to struggles with sobriety, Janney covers a wide range.
In today’s interview she tells Terry about how her height has affected her career:
I say I’m 5’12”. I’m definitely six feet. In my heels I’m 6’3”. … [As a kid], I was always sort of a late bloomer in a lot of things. I always felt that way. I felt like my career started late and I think it was because of my height — and maybe some of my confidence issues.
I was playing 40-year-old women when I was 20. I didn’t get considered for ingénue roles. Maybe I just wasn’t ready, but things started happening when I turned 38. … I think my height probably did have something to do with it – but [my height] also helped me in certain parts. It’s made me definitely more of a character actress in terms of my love of doing comedy. I get cast as either the smartest woman in the room, or the drunkest woman in the room, and a lot of stuff in-between. But I do well getting those kinds of parts — authoritative or completely crazy, which I love. I love both of those kinds of roles.
"Either the smartest woman in the room or the drunkest woman in the room" this is my dream character acting scenario. Janney for life hero, always.
