I love Russell Crowe. Right from the moment I read THIS. It takes balls to say something so true in public. I really like him now.

From www.southflorida.com News, according to Crowe -

"I'm sick to death of famous people standing up and using their celebrity to promote a cause. If I see a particular need, I do try to help. But there's a lot that can be achieved by putting a cheque in the right place and shutting up about it."

My sentiments exactly, which is why I get pissed off with celebrity bloggers getting all hoity-toity with the "right" issues. In college I once took a course on Interpersonal Relations, mostly to improve my own. After the course I was even more convinced that people mostly do populist things to gratify their frightful need for acceptance and self-verification and not because they are actually charitable. I was fully convinced when some very famous people actually did a volte face but pretended otherwise in front of the media. I firmly believe that most people have nasty sides to them, which is ok, however accepting that sorry fact is really tough for most everybody.

Young 'un (yes, even with those extra 5 years, though my daughter's a tad younger)

Attitude - I like. Unstated snobbery - I like.
Foodie - I like.

But own an apartment?
Hmmm. Capitalist oppressor!
