quotes from the road: number eleven

  • TO MYSELF, WHILE BOAT-SITTING ON THE THAMES:

for lara, with love, from the river :D

awards daily: the best awards season blog

this, in my opinion, is the consummate awards blog online. helmsman sasha stone perennially covers the race for la-la land’s most coveted man, oscar, with unmatched aplomb and insight. i read her daily, regardless of whether or not i’m traveling. winning little gold men is a petty goal. you still want one though:) “oscar is as oscar does.”
