"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!
BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
Please guys, if you could sign this it would mean a lot. I’ve been following this case for months and it’s infuriating how little this zoo and our goverment care about this poor guy. Let’s give him a happy ending.
I don’t think luck comes into it much. I was recently speaking to an old acquaintance who used to work at the RSC and remembers his first season with them (and, as a total unknown just out of drama school, he was recruited because of his talent alone - unlike some other actors cast in big parts around then largely because they were the son or daughter of a big star or had other connections) - she said that Stratford was buzzing about his talent. She also said he was one of the nicest, politest actors she has ever worked with, which has probably helped a bit, as well - not being an arsehole can be a real career advantage for an actor.
I’ve heard the “very little range” accusation lobbed at Freeman a lot and I disagree. He’s a quiet, unshowy actor who follows the internal, Stanislavskian method of living the character’s emotions from within, rather than impersonating other people. If he looks like he’s just being himself in every part, IMO it’s because he makes the character’s thought processes and feelings so natural and believable. I don’t need him to look radically different in every part he’s in - I just need to feel 100% convinced by the character. Which I always am.
Don’t often quote from comments in articles, but this was blackbroom talking about Martin Freeman in the Guardian’s review of Richard III, in response to an accusation that Martin had ‘limited talent’ and had gotten ‘lucky’ to be where he is now. (via missmollysolverson)
We have seen Martin in Sherlock, we have seen him in Fargo, and even if we had seen nothing else at all, we would KNOW he has talent. So very much talent.
His acting style is somewhat understated compared to others - but that’s his strength. He is subtle. He has some mannerisms that you can pick up on (e.g. his restless hand gestures), but they vary between characters. Comparing them shows you the distinct differences between these people he portrays. There is so much going on under the surface. But you have to look for it, so to appreciate him the audience needs to be smart.
When I gushed about both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin playing Richard III, a friend of mine (who is a semi-casual fan of Sherlock) said “Not to step on your toes, I know how much you think of Benedict, but there is NO WAY he’ll be better than Martin”. I reluctantly agreed with her. Benedict will be great as Richard III - but BETTER than Martin? No, probably not.
There is just so much contained anger underneath his performance (I think he said as much in an interview), and the audience picks up on it.
tl;dr - Martin is amazing, there’s no luck involved, rumor mongers need to shut their pie holes.
I am not the person you think I am. This kind of monster.
