“It was that white cloak that soiled me, not the other way around.”
David Bowie, Marion Cotillard, and Gary Oldman in David Bowie’s new music video for The Next Day (x)
Jonathan Demme: I am as in the dark today as I was when I first saw Anthony Hopkins unexpectedly make this amazing kind of slurping, kissing, whatever sound that is he makes, when he describes his meal there.
Anthony Hopkins: I remember seeing Dracula when I was a kid, and I don’t know if it did actually happen in the film, but it was Bela Lugosi’s Dracula and when he sees Jonathan Harker — I don’t know if I dreamed this up, I don’t know where it came from — when Jonathan Harker cuts himself with the razor and Dracula goes [makes the sound]. But I don’t know if that actually did occur in the Bela Lugosi film, it must have occured in my subconscious somewhere.
So if you saw a crime committed against him, you wouldn’t as a lawman feel the obligation to intervene? —I’m suspended.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
