Satire is a great way to cut through. I think sometimes truth is so disturbed that if you don’t look at it through an absurdist lens, you’d never get out of bed. And I think also it’s a way of getting at the idea that it’s all inevitable. That murder is a legitimate economic policy, for example. We believe that’s just the way it is and there’s nothing that can be done about it. It’s just like the weather. There’s nothing we can do about it. We treat the war like the weather and the weather like the war.

John  Cusack on his movie War Inc. Name another actor who can reference Moliere, Sesame Street, The Shock Doctrine, the American war policy on Iraq, and Frigidaire in one interview and not sound like he’s showing off. You can’t, coz he’s the only one. That’s why I still love him despite the fact that he’s now fat and plays daddy roles. Wish they show this movie here…

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
