There are some sequences in films that I think work filmicly, that stand out to me, but that’s much more to do with the staging and the cutting and the mood of the thing as a sequence, the way everything comes together.
I’ve only ever played ‘God of War’ while we were shooting it. I’ve seen a lot of the videos, but while we were shooting ‘God of War,’ they had a green room for the actors to hang out in, and they always had the newest game on the big screen. So we’d sit there playing ‘God of War’ to get us into the mood.
I think music can heal your soul if you’ll let it. It can also bring you up if you’re down. It can also bring you down if you’re too up. It’s a mood thing.
Shellac was asked to do a recreation of our first album, but we’ve always been a band that improvised our sets. That’s critical to the way that we function on stage. Whatever the mood takes us on stage can vary from night to night with what you feel like playing.
I’ve been playing since I was about 7. I never really used a pick very much. I mean, once in a while, if you’re in a festive mood, you might draw a little blood, but nothingsignificant… But my hands aren’t abused, really.
I try to make my mood uplifting and peaceful, then watch the world around me reflect that mood.
I’ve spent most of my life doing some sort of exercise, but I’ve learned to never push myself into doing it. I know that when I am up for it I will, and when I’m not in the mood to, I don’t make myself feel badlyover it.
I’m always gonna be smiling. I’m always gonna be in a good mood.
As goofy as it sounds, I try to sing in the morning. It’s hardboth to sing and to maintain a grouchy mood, and it sets a happy tone for everyone – particularly in my case, because I’m tone deaf, and my audience finds my singing a source of great hilarity.
Fashion is a huge part of music and of who you are. It really sets the mood for a show, and it’s fun to play around with it. You can get really creative in photo shoots as well. You know, just having fun with it.
I feel like now fashion is just part of how I think about everything. When I send out a mood board to our contributors every month about our monthlytheme, there are photos from our fashion shows, but there are also film stills and album art.
There are films you see that only reach your eyes. Then there are films that you can watch… that reach down to your throat, or reach your heart. ‘In the Mood for Love,’ though, reached all the way to my belly.
It’s a mood record. Like one night you’re going to be down in the dumps depressed because you’re thinking about your ex-boyfriend and the next moment you’re gonna be like screw him you know? And the next one you’re saying to yourself ‘God I’m in love.’
‘The Chill,’ by Jason Starr and Mick Bertilorenzi, was both a wise and nervy choice to start the year: Starr’s standalone novels, such as ‘Hard Feelings’ and ‘The Follower,’ sustain a mood not unlike the perpetual unscratchable itch on one’s back, and go Highsmith-level deep into the sociopathic mind.
For a coach to be able to help you, they need to get to know you well. They need to see what’s happening – that you are not in the mood to talk, or something like this. It is very hard to find the right person.
It all has to do with the director, the captain of the ship. He sets the pace, the mood. If the director is quiet, the set is quiet. If the director is loud, then everybody has to be louder to be heard.
I think the best president – because he changed the whole mood of the country, the whole economy of the country, and stood up to Communism… that was continuing its causes around the world, and backed them off and caused them to collapse – and that was Ronald Reagan.
When I get in a bad mood about anything, I realize, ‘Hey, I’m still working. It could always be a lot worse.’
Don’t force yourself to write. Some people can write a novel in a few months, whereas for others it can take over a year. I’m lucky to be one of the former – but, even so, if I’m not in the mood to write, I won’t. I’ll go off, do something else and come back to it when I’m ready.
I wrote three novels in six months, with a clarity of focus and attention to detail that I had never before experienced. This type of sublime creative energy is characteristic of the elevated and productive mood state known as hypomania.
In my fiction, there’s a lot that’s borrowed from music. It’s never like I’m taking a lyric, but more the mood of a particular song. ‘The Boy Detective Fails’ was like listening to ‘Eleanor Rigby’ by The Beatles, this very melancholy-but-poppy song.
One Long Year was just a song here and there, and it was meant to reflect the mood that I was in but unfortunately it also reflected too little of any particular thing rather than hanging together as a whole album.
Even writing verses from my first album, there were songs that I didn’t use because I just felt that they weren’t really for me. But I think that happens naturally when you write songs. You’re in a different mood in every session. There’s so many songs out there that could potentially be used by other artists.
Let’s say another YouTuber rates my outfit from Coachella, right? They are completely entitled to their opinion, and I actually really loved my Coachella outfit. If they say, ‘This is ugly,’ and even if I don’t think it’s true, it’s a mood killer.
I come out before the matches because it’s important the fans see I am in a good mood. When I get to the club, my mood is always lifted. You can be in a terrible mood, but once you are at Fulham, you are happy.
Don’t shop when you’re hungry or in a grumpy mood. You need to feel happy and confident to make the best decisions.
I’m very finicky about when I’m in the right mood to write. So most days, I find some excuse not to do anything.
I can’t go into a mob scene and sense the mood and the attitude of the crowd. I can’t conduct man-on-the-street interviews or even get reactions that I can be sure are honest, because they know who I am.
When I go on the set, I’m so rushed. When I see the actors at rehearsal, when I love it, I want to keep the mood – my mood and the actors’ mood also. So I have to push the crew faster. I don’t want to lose the mood.
I was in a queer mood, thinking myself very old: but now I am a woman again – as I always am when I write.
Every so often, if I’m in a melancholy mood, I’ll sing ‘Desperado’ in my shows. I’ll sit alone at the piano and play it as a solo. The song feels like an old friend – except now it’s saying, ‘You were a desperado once, but you worked your way out of it.’
It is very difficult for anyone to predict how a film will do. It depends on so many things: the mood of the audience, the state of their mind at the time, how they have reacted to the whole treatment.
Every time you feel depressed about something, try to identify a corresponding negative thought you had just prior to and during the depression. Because these thoughts have actually created your bad mood, by learning to restructure them, you can change your mood.
Obama ran as sane and decent, as though we were electing a mood, and not necessarily a set of policies. Unfortunately, Obama has governed the same way – and misread the mood, which is all there is, really, because being crazy and stupid is all we’re really good at politically any more.
I actually think that self-expression comes, sometimes, from what you wear, and having the freedom to be able to wear whatever you want for whatever mood you want to wear it, but to not feel frivolous that all of those things that help you self-express have to be things that you’re committing to forever.
High heels are like a beauty lift. In a flat, you can feel beautiful, but a stiletto changes your mood, how you move – like a wild, beautiful animal. The idea was always to follow a woman’s wardrobe, her desires.
When you’re around the kids, you feel like you act the most grown up just because you’re supposed to lead. I say things, like every other parent, that reminds you of your own parents. One thing I do know about being a parent, you understand why your father was in a bad mood a lot.
I love to have a dinnerparty. I love to have people over. I like the feeling it creates in my home – having guestslaughing and telling their stories – and I put a lot of thought into it. I plan my menu kind of depending on whatever mood I’m in.
I’m in the mood for ‘SharkTank‘ sometimes. When I am, my son and I can’t stop watching. But I probably watch ‘The Bachelor‘ more, and Scott Foley and I text about it, like, ‘Oh my God, did you see that?!’ I love it. It’s such a train wreck.
There was a scene in ‘Qubool Hai’ where Asad shoots his father. After shooting for it, I was drained completely. At times, my character’s mood gets very depressing. Post shoot, it takes a good half hour to get out of character, to leave Asad behind.
I can rock out anything. I mean, I can rock out a little ‘Time After Time’. I can do a little ‘GreaseLightning‘. It depends on the mood, but we do go karaoke, my friends and I in Los Angeles, and it’s a lot of fun.
My all-time favorite would have to be ‘Friends’. I’ve loved that show since I was 12 years old! Whenever I’m in a bad mood, I put on an episode and listen to it while I do other things like homework or cooking.
I’ve worked on shows where it’s fun; you want to hang out. If you’re enjoying it, that’s how you take ownership of it. You want to give to be a part of this thing. I feel that’s the mood on the set of ‘Detroiters.’
My style is definitely schizophrenic; it does change from day to day a lot. It depends on my mood: sometimes I’ll be going through a girly, childlike stage and wear a pretty lace dress with a bow in my hair. Then sometimes I’ll be moody and just wear black.
I do listen to music. Movie scores, exclusively, because it’s all about mood and nonspecificity. I love the way modern movie scoring is all about nonspecificity. You know, if I shuffled the tracks from ‘Inception,’ I challenge you to tell me which is which.
When I’m in my normal mood, music drips from my fingers.
With anxiety and depression, what’s been most helpful to me has been learning a toolbox – a set of skills I can use when I’m in periods of low mood or feel an anxiety attack coming on. When Years & Years took off it felt like I needed that toolbox really quickly.
Some days I can’t get an idea, and I think, ‘Man, I’m just washed up,’ but it’s just a mood.
If someone decides they’re not going to be happy, it’s not your problem. You don’t have to spend your time and energy trying to cheer up someone who has already decided to stay in a bad mood. Believe it or not, you can actually hurt people by playing into their self-pity.
I think I’m in the same mood as ever, but in some ways more mature. I guess you could say that, at 65, when you’ve seen the world shape up as I have, there are only two things you can do: laugh or kill yourself.
Even though we don’t always realize it, as the day goes on, we have increased difficulty exerting self-control and focusing on our work. As self-control wears out, we feel tired and find tasks to be more difficult, and our mood sours.
If I let a blue mood run rampant, before I know it I’m obsessing about the color of the satin lining in my coffin – will it match my dress? That’s when I feel like Alice in Cancerland falling down the rabbit hole and just have to stop.
My mood depends on how I treat my toothbrushes. Being a skipper is a strenuous job, and when you are going through a roughphase, obviously you start taking out your frustration. You can’t take it out on anyone: you can’t take it out on your teammates or your wife. The only person that is left is your toothbrush.
Children are extremely perceptive and absorb what goes on around them long before they can talk or even comprehendlanguage. They are like finely tuned receivers that pick up much more than is merely said. They are receptive and attuned to every mood, feeling, and change that goes on in people around them.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
The first thing that inspires me is my mood, but I take inspiration from a lot of things: a rock song, a romantic movie or a specific lifestyle, like 1960s London and, of course, Italian ‘dolce vita!’
It’s always different for whatever the scene asks for but usually, I listen to music before the scene just to get into the mood, mellow myself out and really put myself into the character’s shoes. I zone out from everything going on around me and just focus on what I have to do. From there, I just let it happen.
And for some reason, when I’m sad, I do listen to Leonard Cohen, I do listen to Joni Mitchell. I do find myself going to the music that’s actually reflecting my mood, as opposed to sticking on Motown, which might actually bring my mood up.
The first work of the director is to set a mood so that the actor’s work can take place, so that the actor can create. And in order to do that, you have to communicate, communicate with the actors. And direction is about communication on all levels.
Well, I think it’s important to have some kind of a narrative engine that pushes the audience through the landscape. But I love films like ‘Apocalypse Now,’ which is a very mood driven film. It’s a magnetic force that’s pulling them through.
I think that you get the mood of a song stronger if you get it right that way. On the other hand, you put some songs out live and they don’t catchflight. They just flop. It is hard to tell until they are out there.
Music is very powerful and can make you feel whatever it is. If you listen to gospel, you’re going to feel thankful, and you’re going to want to call up people that you hate and tell them that you love them. When you listen to sexual music, it gets you in the mood.
For me, living and making music, they’re one thing. It’s not like a job that I go to a studio to do, or a chore that I have to get myself in the mood to do, or something. It’s the thing that I need to do every day.
The enemies of acting are mood and attitude and other general homogenized disruptiveentities. Whereas acting is about action – doing – and unless you can figure out a way to craft in an imaginativereality to which you don’t submit, you’re going to be out of control. You’ll flip out. The job is to be surprised.
If feminism was a dress, it would be that essential little black number, reached for in times of need; different for everyone but a steadyconstant in a woman’s life. Outspoken or understated, demure or provocative, worn to reflect the mood, the personality, the time.
