Quote of the Week: Lorde

"I didn't expect to be in this world but I think it's kind of cool. For a long time pop has been this laughable, shameful thing. But it's actually gratifying and fun and can unite populations, which I think is incredibly powerful. So hopefully I am showing that pop can be taken seriously."

Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor (born 7 November 1996), known by her stage name Lorde, New Zealand singer-songwriter.

 

Quote of the Week: Hayao Miyazaki

“Personally I am very pessimistic. But when, for instance, one of my staff has a baby you can't help but bless them for a good future. Because I can't tell that child, 'Oh, you shouldn't have come into this life.' And yet I know the world is heading in a bad direction. So with those conflicting thoughts in mind, I think about what kind of films I should be making.”

Hayao Miyazaki (born 5 January 1941), Japanese film director, animator, manga artist, producer, and screenwriter.
