Gus Van Sant e Sean Penn
Thank you. Thank you. You commie, homo-loving sons-of-guns. I did not expect this, but I, and I want it to be very clear, that I do know how hard I make it to appreciate me often. But I am touched by the appreciation and I hoped for it enough that I did want to scribble down, so I had the names in case you were commie, homo-loving sons-of-guns, and so I want to thank my best friend, Sata Matsuzawa. My circle of long-time support, Mara, Brian, Barry and Bob. The great Cleve Jones. Our wonderful writer, Lance Black. Producers Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks.
And particularly, as all, as actors know, our director either has the patience, talent and restraint to grant us a voice or they don't, and it goes from the beginning of the meeting, through the cutting room. And there is no finer hands to be in than Gus Van Sant. And finally, for those, two last finallies, for those who saw the signs of hatred as our cars drove in tonight, I think that it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren's eyes if they continue that way of support. We've got to have equal rights for everyone. And there are, and there are, these last two things. I'm very, very proud to live in a country that is willing to elect an elegant man president and a country who, for all its toughness, creates courageous artists.

Se você não assistiu Milk - A Voz da Igualdade, de Gus Van Sant, está perdendo tempo. Já falei dele na Revista Paradoxo, e reforço o convite. Especialmente porque ontem pude assistir ao documentário de 1984 no qual o filme é baseado, The Times of Harvey Milk, e reafirmei a genialidade de Van Sant. Dá até para assistir o documentário na íntegra por este link.
Este sábado foi intenso. A lua na sétima casa, Jupiter se alinhando com Marte, a chegada da era de aquário, valentine's day e ainda o fim do horário de verão!
