“If Homeland takes place in the present, then Carrie Mathison is probably around the same age that Angela Chase would be now, which means that Carrie would have been in high school when My So-Called Life began airing during its initial run. If Carrie hasn’t seen My So-Called Life, then all evidence of her predilection for introspection and penchant for getting involved with unavailable men would indicate that she should—or, at the very last, someone should get a set of the DVDs for Brody’s daughter Dana.)”—Dustin Hoffman on Claire Danes, in Interview

“The comma is essentially a Give Way sign – you would slow down and check both ways before entering the next part of the sentence. Obviously the full stop is a Stop sign. But what the semicolon is, continuing with the traffic analogy, is like a flashing red light signal.

There’s a dovetailing that goes on, different from a comma.”—My pal Toby’s interview with David Astle is the best ever!
to everyone who’s ordered a copy of FF this past week! I dropped a huge pile of packages in the postbox on my lunch break today, then went and got a giant Slurpee.
