"My friends were making fun of me. I was just walking around the house for a while, just flipping this plastic knife." - Sebastian Stan

"My mother used to say to me, ‘You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you.’ And these words played and bothered me, I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant by saying that you can’t eat beauty is that you can’t rely on beauty to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul."

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.

Interviewer: Was David Tennant a good kisser

Catherine Tate: I didn’t kiss David, did I?

Interviewer: Yes! He had a mouth full of food though.

CT: Did I? When?

Interviewer: It was in The Unicorn and the Wasp.

CT: Oh yeah! He had pilchards and cashew nuts in his mouth.

Interviewer: So no then?

CT: No, I’m not saying he’s not a good kisser. I’m saying I’m going to demand a retrial.

Interviewer: And finally another salacious one: to make it realistic, was he really naked in that TARDIS scene in Journey’s End?

CT: He insisted on being naked. I said, “Please put your anorak on.

Ten/Rose; starring Eleven and Twelve. Crack? I guess? I don’t even know what this is. Let’s just call it a coping mechanism for me lol.
