The wind is rising! … We must try to live!
The huge air opens and shuts my book: the wave
Dares to explode out of the rocks in reeking
Spray. Fly away, my sun-bewildered pages!
Break, waves! Break up with your rejoicing surges
This quiet roof where sails like doves were pecking.

"Sin City’s where you go in with your eyes open, or you don’t come out at all."
Seeing Joe being accompanied by his agent, Warren Zavala, to the Oscars last night, I remembered a quote I meant to post ages ago.
It’s from the Men’s Health profile on Joe, where he talked about his reasons for taking a break from acting in the early 2000s and what motivated him to come back to it:
Around that time, he received a call from a young, hungry junior agent named Warren Zavala. The agent had admired Gordon-Levitt’s performance as an angry teen in the 2001 indie drama Manic opposite a then-unknown Zooey Deschanel. “I told him, ‘You don’t have to exploit yourself to have a long and meaningful career,’” says Zavala. He is still Gordon-Levitt’s agent. [x]
