Interviewer: Mads Mikkelsen is a pretty incredible actor—

 Gillian Anderson: He is an incredible actor.

 Interviewer: What’s it like working with him?

 Gillian Anderson: Intense. Most of our scenes are sitting across from each other in my house. We stare at each other a lot. Recently somebody showed me a little clip that somebody had put together of us just staring, clips of us staring at each other back and forth for like a minute and a half. [x]

I don’t want to get too excited before anything’s confirmed, but I’m getting pretty jazzed over the possibility of The Rock playing Captain Marvel.

Ok, look, Scully, I don’t wanna jump to any hasty conclusions, but, on the strength of the evidence that we have here, I think what we may be looking at, what appears to be a series of vampire or vampire-like attacks.

“True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure - the greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation, the truer the choice to the character’s essential nature. But this? Using scissors to cut off the tip of a slice of pizza? I don’t know what this is. ”

The recent release of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" reminded me of one of my favorite ape vs. man films – this 1932 video that shows a baby chimpanzee and a baby human undergoing the same basic psychological tests.

Its gets weirder – the human baby (Donald) and the chimpanzee baby (Gua) were both raised as humans by their biological/adopted father Winthrop Niles Kellogg.  Kellogg was a comparative psychologist fascinated by the interplay between nature and nurture, and he devised a fascinating (and questionably ethical) experiment to study it:

Suppose an anthropoid were taken into a typical human family at the day of birth and reared as a child. Suppose he were fed upon a bottle, clothed, washed, bathed, fondled, and given a characteristically human environment; that he were spoken to like the human infant from the moment of parturition; that he had an adopted human mother and an adopted human father.

First, Kellogg had to convince his pregnant wife he wasn’t crazy:

 …the enthusiasm of one of us met with so much resistance from the other that it appeared likely we could never come to an agreement upon whether or not we should even attempt such an undertaking.

She apparently gave in, because Donald and Gua were raised, for nine months, as brother and sister. Much like Caesar in the “Planet of the Apes” movies, Gua developed faster than her “brother,” and often outperformed him in tasks. But she soon hit a cognitive wall, and the experiment came to an end. (Probably for the best, as Donald had begun to speak chimpanzee.)

You can read more about Kellogg’s experiment, its legacy, and public reaction to it here.

In A Zipcar

New York, NY 10001

Yesterday I felt an incredibly strong cry coming on that needed a very high level of privacy ASAP or things were going to get very uncomfortable.  Luckily I found a Zipcar a few blocks away from me for only 13 dollars an hour and booked it up quick!! It was a mid-size car that had room for 4 friends and 6 suitcases, which I thought was probably a little small for the cry I was about to have, but you take what you can get!!!!!   There was no driving involved, of course, because I couldn’t have that kind of distraction with my huge cry task at hand!!! I just sat in the Zipcar parking lot weeping in the car for exactly one hour and then returned to the world so very refreshed and anew.  The rest of the world can cry in their cars 24/7 while us privacy poor can only dream of something like that. I have to say that dipping into their extreme luxury for an hour was exactly what you would expect: an absolute dream come true!!  Great for your most volatile, extreme cries that nobody should ever see!!!
