I really hate it when I’m watching a show on my computer on full screen and then the show fades to black, and then suddenly I can see my reflection on the monitor. You can see that slack, dull face just staring at itself. I just want to snap out of it and go do something with my life but I know that I can’t because I’m in the middle of a show.

Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.
Albert Camus (via lauraleevan)
“If you’re using half your concentration to look normal, then you’re only half paying attention to whatever else you’re doing.”
Different people have different ways of responding to the thought that they’re very lucky to be alive. For me it seems to suggest a great responsibility to make the most of it. You’re extremely lucky to be here, the odds against your being here are far greater than the odds against your winning the lottery, so be thankful and spend your time - your brief time - under the sun looking around and rejoicing and wondering and being fascinated and trying to understand everything about the universe in which you’re so fortunate to be born.

You have been weighed
You have been measured

And then they called and said, “Listen, Coulson’s back in Iron Man 2,” and I was like, “Shut… the front door! I’m doing another one of these?!” And then when I was doing those scenes [in Iron Man 2], and I kept saying I was going to New Mexico in the draft they gave me when I got there, I said, “What’s in New Mexico?” And they said, “Oh, you are! You’re going to be in Thor!” And I was like, “Oh my God! Really?! When? When?!” And then when we were doing the panel for Thor at Comic Con, [and] right before we went on stage, Joss Whedon comes over and introduces himself, and says, “I wrote you a really big part in The Avengers, um… Can I introduce you as part of the cast of The Avengers, with Robert Downey, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo? Everyone’s here.” And I was like, “Yeah, I think that would be okay.” (Laughs) – So it’s just been a kind of like a weird, Make-A-Wish Foundation thing, where it seems so ludicrous every time it happens. I keep waiting for someone to show up and tell me that I have two weeks to live.
Clark Gregg on ‘The Avengers,’ ‘Marvel One-Shots,’ ‘Iron Man 3’ and More! | CraveOnline
Clark Gregg is the best fanboy to happen to Marvel since Agent M.
They still live for all that love them well.
Is it really possible to tell someone else what one feels?
The first draft of anything is shit.
