2013 Film Diary
#39 - Tower of London (1939).  OK, I already posted the epic drinking contest that takes place in this movie.  Hint:  it is between Basil Rathbone and Vincent Price, that’s how fabulous it is.  I guess the only other thing you need to know about this is that The Baz keeps track of his progress to becoming Richard III by manipulating little doll replicas of his victims in a little dollhouse throne room.  I’ve told you enough.  Now go and watch this kickass movie. 

Vincent had said that during the scene where he is in the barrel, Boris and Basil decided to mess with him by throwing dirty cigarette butts and garbage into the water, sort of an initiation, since he was new to movie acting at the time! :)

Faith and Trust

I realized this weekend just how important these two words are when in recovery. When we realize we need help, we put our trust in complete strangers that they will guide us through the abyss, based solely on their word that they know the way. We trust them with our damaged selves, and hope that they will trust in us that we really do need their help. No one in my close circle of friends from AA has ever seen me drunk, nor I them. Yet we trust one another that we are all there for the right reasons.

A Story Told Well: NPR’s Borderland 
NPR recently launched a special series, Borderland, in which Steve Inskeep traveled along the entire 2,428 mile border between the U.S. and Mexico to report on the nuances of immigration and the relationship between the two countries. Here are the radio stories, which are so worth listening to if this is an issue that you’ve had a hard time wrapping your mind around, or not seen fantastic reporting on before. And here is the stunning visual intro to the series, which breaks the piece down into 12 stories complete with moving characters, all the numbers (presented very digestibly) and a lot of context.

Aww thanks! In case anyone missed this last week, do spend some time with the Borderlands project. There’s lots of great images by Kainaz and great storytelling throughout. -Emily
