My First (and Nearly Last) Day on ‘Friends’ (Part 1) | You Offend Me You Offend My Family

My First (and Nearly Last) Day on ‘Friends’ (Part 1) | You Offend Me You Offend My Family | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"It’s the summer of 1994. I am an out of work actress sitting in my home in the Hollywood Hills watching an episode of a new sit-com, Friends, on NBC. I seem to be having a mild crush on one of the characters, Ross. I distinctly remember thinking, “I’d love to work on this show. And I’d love to play my scenes with that guy. I’ll wait to see what his name is in the end credits. David Schwimmer. Got it.”

 

The next morning, I’m walking on my treadmill eating a Krispy Kreme at the same time, when my agent, Leslie Siebert, phones. “Lauren, I have a job offer for you.”

Happy Birthday, W.E.B. DuBois!

Happy Birthday, W.E.B. DuBois! | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his two-ness,—an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder."

-W.E.B. DuBois
