Debbie Harry / Blondie

Are there any other huuuuge Blondie fans out there?? I not only love the music but I love Debbie Harry. She is just so… COOL. You know? Bad ass chick in a punk band with platinum hair!?
She began her music career in the late 60s.
Blondie” was formed in the 70s and man did they ever rock.
Here’s the super talented Debbie Harry and some of her quotes..

“The only thing I really wanted to be was a beatnik, and look what happened: I ended up being in a band.”

“I’m a culture vulture, and I just want to experience it all.”

 “I feel one of the things I brought to rock and roll was that sort of movie star glamour and image, and that’s what always fascinated me. I always wanted to be that blonde, glowing woman on film, and it was sort of automatically thrown at my feet — and I went with it.”

“You know, the issues of humanity and what is fair treatment and good treatment of a fellow human being should not really be based on a personal sense of right and wrong or judgment.”

“I have a lot of regrets, but I’m not going to think of them as regrets.”

“I could be a housewife… I guess I’ve vacuumed a couple of times.”

“Music is wonderful. Especially if there’s some kind of content to it.”

“Lately I’ve been believing that music predates speech.”

“We probably, as primitive people, made music before we actually had a language, and that’s where language comes from.”

“Morality should have to do with killing people or hurting them or stealing from them, but when it comes to adult choices, I don’t see it.”

“I think it’s a Blondie tradition that all of our albums sort of have a wide spread of styles.”

“I don’t mind if my skull ends up on a shelf as long as it’s got my name on it.”

“Why should you force your brain cells to remember a lot of stuff when the most important thing you can do is to come up with new stuff?”

“The only person I really believe in is me.”

“You always fall for the rascal or the guy who’s got a little bit of the devil in him. You can’t help it.”

“I wish I had invented sex.”

“I feel like I have to have a voice.”

“I do know the effect that music still has on me – I’m completely vulnerable to it. I’m seduced by it.”

“I really, really like writing songs.”

“I mean I think that Blondie’s influence is a little bit in a way more eclectic than those bands.”

“Capote wrote every day. He said that’s the only way, you have to sit down every day and do it.”

“A lot of the bands were really, really different and a lot of them actually didn’t become huge but I think were hugely influential.”

“That was always what I felt was the beauty of Rock ‘n’ Roll, it was entertainment and showbiz yet it had the idea of the voice of the people, it had an essence to it which was socially motivated. Not that I want to change to world, you know? But it was sort of relevant to real life, it involved the real essence of poetry or the real essence of fine art. But it was also entertainment. That was the real vitality.”

Meryl Streep

Let’s talk about Meryl. I think she is lovely. She’s got this classic beauty. She’s soft and tough all at the same time.

“The progression of roles you take strings together a portrait of an actor, but it’s a completely random process.”

“I think the most liberating thing I did early on was to free myself from any concern with my looks as they pertained to my work.”

“I have a very good life – I’m lucky enough not to be deprived.”

“How you first meet the public is how the industry sees you. You can’t argue with them. That’s their perception.”

“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.”

“We are who we’re going to be when we’re very old, and when we’re very old we are who we were when we were 8.”

“I didn’t have any confidence in my beauty when I was young. I felt like a character actress, and I still do. “

“Integrate what you believe in every single area of your life. Take your heart to work and ask the most and best of everybody else, too.”

“Obsession is an attractive thing. People who are really, really interested and good at one thing and smart are attractive, if they’re men.”

“Instant gratification is not soon enough.”

“I want to feel my life while I’m in it.”

“You win an Oscar, it can double the audience that you had before.”

“The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy.”

“I’m all over the place.”

“My job is usually to express emotion as freely as possible.”

“Everything we say signifies; everything counts, that we put out into the world. It impacts on kids, it impacts on the zeitgeist of the time.”

“I think your self emerges more clearly over time.”

“There are improbable things suspended in space, like the earth.”

“I’m never so sure as I was in my mid 20s.”

“I’m curious about other people. That’s the essence of my acting. I’m interested in what it would be like to be you.”
