Quote of the Day

I'm well past pretending I haven't been spending all day today drawing loopy pink-tinged renditions of my own name mixed up with Matthias Schoenaerts in my notebook like an heart-eyed lovestruck fan-girl, so just go with me, this one's worth it - EW interviewed Matthias about Far From the Madding Crowd (which I just review slash swooned over right here) and other stuff (thanks Mac)... other stuff like this bit, as if I needed more fuel for my adoration-fire:

"Schoenaerts has an affinity for European auteurs such as Vinterberg and fellow Belgian, Michaël R. Roskam, the director of Bullhead and The Drop. But one of the ways he perfected his English was by watching American movies, and you can gleam a lot about his artistic sensibility from which filmmaker he’d most love to work with: “David Lynch has the most unique look on life of any director in the world. If I was told I could only be in one more movie in my lifetime, I’d want to be in his.” Asked what is his favorite Lynch film, Schoenaerts runs through the director’s filmography before settling on his G-rated 1999 fable, The Straight Story. Might they work together? “I hope so. I met him at his house, which is crazy because it’s the Lost Highway house. We were driving up and the assistant tells me, ‘There’s his house,’ and I was like”—he feigns a valley girl twang—‘Oh my God! Am I really getting in there?’”

trigger warning: grammar nazi alert

Before a word start­ing with a pro­nounced, breathy “h,” use “a.” Examples: A hotel; A happy time; A his­tor­i­cal day; A healthy, happy baby.

You attend a his­tory class, not an his­tory class. Same with “his­tor­i­cal.” It was a his­tor­i­cal occasion.

Honeymooners go to a hide­away, not an hide­away. The don­key car­ried a heavy bur­den, not an heavy bur­den. “Historical” is no different.

Use “an” with words begin­ning with an unpro­nounced “h.” Examples: An herb gar­den; an hour; an honor; An heir.

Now, let’s com­bine them: “Look! An herb gar­den in a his­tor­i­cal set­ting. Let’s stay an hour, then find a hotel.”
