Shiny Grey Star


Incredible photo by @letterstophilemon of this fantastic meetup! (at Bangers & Lace)

Such precious people.
I was determined to wipe Audrey out of my mind by screwing a woman in every country I visited. My plan succeeded, though sometimes with difficulty. When I was in Bangkok, I was with a Thai girl in a boat in one of the klongs. I guess we got too animated, because the boat tipped over and I fell into the filthy water. Back at the hotel I poured alcohol in my ears because I was afraid I’d become infected with the plague. When I got back to Hollywood, I went to Audrey’s dressing-room and told her what I had done. You know what she said? “Oh, Bill!” That’s all. “Oh, Bill!”. Just as though I were some naughty boy. She was the love of my life. William Holden about Audrey Hepburn (via gabbigolightly)

Just letting you all know my phone is broken and of no use, which means less posting on Instagram. That part hurts the most.
Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through. Ira Glass (via fleurlungs)
