"I think that the amount of concentration, sometimes the amount of personal exploration, it takes to do something well, can be not pleasant, you know, like hard work is. That doesn’t mean that you don’t want to do it or that you don’t love it or that it’s not ultimately satisfying. You know that old cliché; you know, nothing’s worth it unless it’s hard to do kind of thing. I wear that on my sleeve sometimes when I’m working… There’s always something about that job that’s exhausting, and that’s what’s exhausting about acting, is the level concentration over very long period of time.
And if you’re carrying that around and the emotional life of that around over a period of time, it can be burdensome. But it’s part of the work, and you’re trying to create something artful out of it. And so, it’s not therapy. So, you’re not there to be in therapy; you’re there to take, you know, what you know and the experiences and behavior and emotional life of yourself and others and try to make something artful out of it. But the carrying of that around and the focusing of that can be, it can be tough.”


-Philip Seymour Hoffman speaking to Terry Gross in 2008 about what he finds difficult about acting

In memory of Mr. Hoffman we put together a show with both of his interviews—one from 1999 and the other from 2008, in addition to a clip from our interview with director Paul Thomas Anderson. .

10 Things Your Dog Would Tell You..
My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.
Give me time to understand what you want of me.
Place your trust in me- it is crucial to my well being.
Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.
You have your work, your entertainment,and your friends. I only have you.
Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understands your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
Be aware that how ever you treat me, I will never forget.
Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.
Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: “I cannot bear to watch” or “Let it happen in my absence.” Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death.

Always reblog.

    Feel I’m on the verge of some greath thruth
    Were I’m finally in my place
    But I’m thumbling still for proof
    And it’s cluttering my space
    Casting shadows on my face
    I know I have a strength to move ahead
    I can hardly leave my room
    So I’ll sit perfecty still
    And I’ll listen for a tune
    When the mind is on the moon

    And if I stumble
    And if I stall
    And if I slit now
    And if I should fall
    And if I cant be all that I could be
    Will you, will you wait for me

    Cause everywhere I seem to be
    I am only passing through
    I dream these days about the sea
    Always wake up feeling blue
    Wishing I could dream of you

    So if I stumble
    And if I fall
    And if I slit now
    And loose it all
    And if I can’t be all that I could be
    Will you, will you wait for me

    And wait for me
    And wait for me
    And wait for me
    Won’t you wait for me
    And wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Won’t you wait for me
    And wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Won’t you wait for me
    And wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Won’t you wait for me
    And wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Won’t you wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Please wait for me
    Won’t you wait for me
