This is FAR AND AWAY the worst story I’ve ever read.

This is making the rounds again and I’m so glad for it. Toni Morrison on Charlie Rose.
Toni Morrison makes a profound point with such exceptional eloquence and grace.
"What does that mean?"
It’s actually great to see how Rose is rendered totally inarticulate when she challenges him. It must have been a real revelation to him. And this is, I think, the very best case. He, and many others who have watched this, cannot help but be educated by her. Her response is not a chastisement or a harangue (even though those things would be justified); her response is a lesson. It changes the listener.
Too late to hope that I can be Toni Morrison when I grow up?
I timed the crazy shot at the end of tonight’s True Detective.
Holy shit. How much of that neighborhood did they have to shut down?
There are two or three moments where I think they sewed a few shots together, but still insanely impressive. Especially over the fence!
According to this article, it is, in fact, one single take. And probably the greatest technical achievement in recent TV history.
Crazy that it’s actually one take!
I figured the edit points were: the quick pan from the stash to McConaughey (flashes by all white wall), the pan up to the helicopter, the clothesline, and then that last house they pass through while McConaughey is on the other side, which has a solid wall they pass by while moving left just as they leave.
The fence climb reminded me of the last shot of The Passenger where they built a cutaway iron fence for the window.
