"At your birth a seed is planted. That seed is your uniqueness. It wants to grow, transform itself, and flower to its full potential. It has a natural, assertive energy to it. Your life’s task is to bring that seed to flower, to express your uniqueness through your work."


Robert Greene

History Fact

Discrimination

When Paris was liberated in 1944, British and American commanders agreed that a French division lead the liberation of Paris. In keeping with racial segregation of American troops, the Americans stipulated that only white soldiers be involved, despite the French army being only 40% white. Black soldiers were taken out of the selected unit and replaced by white soldiers from other units, and even other armies—this meant that General Charles de Gaulle lead the liberation of Paris with a division of “French” soldiers who were largely Spaniards.


Movie/TV Trivia

Inglourious Basterds

When asked how he got into the violent, baseball bat-wielding mindset of "The Bear Jew", Eli Roth partially attributed his performance to the historically accurate costumes: "Being in wool underwear will make you want to kill anything." He also stated (in a separate interview) that his girlfriend had secretly added some Hannah Montana (2006) music onto his iPod; when he listened to it, it inexplicably made him able to tap into the violent nature of The Bear Jew.
