  • “I think it proved to the world that we can change and that we are the democracy we say we are. As a musician it also reminded me that the great music forms have been invented by black Americans – the blues, jazz, rock’n’roll, hip-hop – and that so much of that music was shaped by struggle. The fact that we elected Obama was a sign that the black struggle inherent in the blues and so much of the music I have loved can triumph.”-Jack White, on President Obama’s election. [Guardian]

  • “The war in Europe is a recognizable version of the terror of war, because it’s about armies fighting on a front line. When an enemy soldier threw his hands up in the air, then, largely, the war was over for him. That is not the case with The Pacific. It was fighting that was based on racism, and a war waged through terror. Horrible things were done on both sides to human beings both dead and alive. It was a case of ‘We hate these people’ – not ‘We’re going to liberate this island’. Most of the time on those islands, there was nothing or nobody to liberate. It was like a large industrial version of what all future wars were going to be like – between different-coloured peoples with different theologies they thought were the absolute truth. The best thing you can say is that the wars have gotten smaller. But then, if it’s so small – we live in a society that’s making a bigger deal about where Jay Leno is going to have a TV show than about a war that’s taking lives.”-Tom Hanks [TimesOnline]
  • “F*ck surgery! I’m so curious as to what’s going to happen naturally that I can’t imagine wanting to alter things just yet.

I’d rather look like a basset hound than do that to my face!”-Drew Barrymore [ShowbizSpy]
