So, once, a long time ago, I decided to do this "Quote of the Moment" thing. Well, I posted one quote and then forgot about the whole thing.
But! I was watching this
video on YouTube (WHY am I addicted to that place, why?!?) with Amanda Tapping doing an interview. She had the following to say about her very small role on the X-Files:
"I was mostly dead on the X-Files....and I give good dead."
She said it so fast that the audience didn't have a chance to really laugh, 'cause I thought it was a silly quote from her, being the comedian that she is and everything.ETA: VG:
Do you have another time or another planet where you would love to go?Amanda:
You know what I would love? I would love to go to a planet where...it's in the same time frame as Earth, the same level of technology, but where, since the beginning of time, every country has been governed by women. From the beginning of time. And I don't mean that from a didactic feminist perspective, I simply would like to see if we would have a more nurturing, caring society. Would women be as machiavellian in our pursuit of power? Would we be Maggie Thatchers? Or would we be Indira Gandhis? What would happen? And I would just love to see what society and what global society would have been like if women had been in power since the very beginning.VG:
Well, I think you should write that script. Amanda:
It's something I've thought about and I think it would be fascinating.
I do too! I would really love to see someone write this, and write it well
, because there are just so many places it can go, and maybe maybe it's just my love of different cultures or of scifi in general -- even though the book wouldn't have to be science fiction -- that the possibilities are infinite! Amanda Tapping is so awesome ♥
So um yeah, back to homework...
