Actors are like kids, they need to play a little bit. And that’s the nature of their job, they need to shake off some energy and then you as the director get them back on track. When you do loosen up the reins, you get some amazing things, but you have to wring out the performances for every last good drop.
The best thing about the Nikita show is that there’s so many layers. Even after the pilot, the next four have a twist. Don’t think that you’ve seen it all or that you know it now, and that it’s not going to have any more surprises. There’s a surprise in every episode, so it’s a lot to keep track of.
Do the Pentecostals look back with shame as they remember when they dwelt across the theological tracks, but with the glory of the Lord in their midst? When they had a normal church life, which meant nights of prayers, followed by signs and wonders, and diverse miracles, and genuine gifts of the Holy Ghost? When they were not clock watchers, and their meetings lasted for hours, saturated with holy power? Have we no tears for these memories, or shame that our children know nothing of such power?
We were doing something called telemedicine, where we were using the ultrasound. One interesting application of this ultrasound is the possibility that you could possibly use it to measure critical bone areas during a long space mission and track if you’re losing bone in these areas. On Earth, when they check you for bone loss, you get in this big machine. It’s the size of a room and it’s got a platform with an x-ray that scans your whole body and in critical areas and it takes a while and it just wouldn’t be practical to have a machine like that in space.
To centralize power in the name of freedom is akin to putting a crime syndicate in charge of rooting out corruption. It is the normal state of politics that the more centralized it is, the more damage it does. Fast-track authority [for government-to-government trade agreements] centralizes power and is therefore part of the problem.
I’ve got pages and pages of snippets of stuff, and if Max [Hershenow] sends me a track to write to I’ll go through all the stuff and the initial reaction of gut and how it makes me feel and I’ll sort of go from there and start pulling my favourite pieces of my lyrics and that will be a very literal word collage and from there I’ll sculpt it for and whatever reason the song sort of presents itself. It’s a bizarre process.
‘Fantasy’ is one of the fewer tracks where it’s more literal than most of our things, but at the same time it’s totally open-ended. Clearly it’s a song about things not really appearing as you want them to, or things either getting what you want and not being satisfied with it because it wasn’t how you hoped it would be, or thinking you want something and not getting it and the realisation of that.
Each night the sun sank right in our eyes along the sea, making an undulating glittering pathway, a golden track charted on the surface of the ocean which our ship followed unswervingly until the sun dipped below the edge of the horizon, and the pathway ran ahead of us faster than we could steam and slipped over the edge of the skyline – as if the sun had been a golden ball and had wound up its thread of gold too quickly for us to follow.
Motivation is the key. More than training, more than experience or age, motivation counts. You have to ask yourself: ‘Why am I racing?’ I race because I like it, because I’m really enjoying it. I like to set up my bike and ride it on track. After 20 years in the GPs I’m still highly motivated. Everything else is a consequence.
Their element is to attack, to track, to hunt, and to destroy the enemy. Only in this way can the eager and skillful fighter pilot display his ability. Tie him to a narrow and confined task, rob him of his initiative, and you take away from him the best and most valuable qualities he posses: aggressive spirit, joy of action, and the passion of the hunter.
Of all the pitfalls in our paths and the tremendous delays and wanderings off the track, I want to say that they are not what they seem to be. I want to say that all that seems like fantastic mistakes are not mistakes, all that seems like error
is not error; and it all has to be done. That which seems like a false step is the next step.
