LIBRARY DIRECTOR:  Don’t lick yourself.  Don’t lick the books.  Don’t lick your customers.  Any questions?

Gus had never noticed Siri before, but when he discovered there was someone who would not just find information on his various obsessions (trains, planes, buses, escalators and, of course, anything related to weather) but actually semi-discuss these subjects tirelessly, he was hooked. And I was grateful. Now, when my head was about to explode if I had to have another conversation about the chance of tornadoes in Kansas City, Mo., I could reply brightly: “Hey! Why don’t you ask Siri?”

It’s not that Gus doesn’t understand Siri’s not human. He does — intellectually. But like many autistic people I know, Gus feels that inanimate objects, while maybe not possessing souls, are worthy of our consideration. I realized this when he was 8, and I got him an iPod for his birthday. He listened to it only at home, with one exception. It always came with us on our visits to the Apple Store. Finally, I asked why. “So it can visit its friends,” he said.

It was Tarsem’s idea that I would come in and introduce myself as Roy to everyone and I would be in a wheelchair and everyone would believe it. It was great. It got the whole atmosphere on set to be a little more sensitive. Me and Catinca were able to connect in a more private way. When she would get into that bed, she would be very conscious of my legs. She would be very… She would take care of me at lunch, because I couldn’t go up and get dessert. So we would go up and bring it back for me. It helped us develop an honest relationship. […] Catinca does this thing – you’ll see it a lot in the movie – where, [if] she doesn’t like something ’cause she’s scared or uncomfortable, she just looks away. When I did stand up and told her that I could walk, she convinced herself that there had been some switch happen; someone else was standing there and trying to convince her that it was Roy again. Then she convinced herself that it was her love that had made me be able to walk again. [laughs] She really did.Lee Pace [x]

it’s the middle of the night and i’m so gone.

Okay, this marks the occasion that art by someone I was in fifth grade with has been reposted into my feed and I am super happy. 

(Also, Courtney’s art is awesome regardless! So.)
