You're on an Airplane A Self Mythologizing MemoirRnered into writingThe opening premise of You re on an Airplane is that you re sitting beside Parker Posey on a light and with such close proximity and time to waste she begins to tell you about her life and her career as an indy actor The premise is embraced in the beginning with Posey interrupting her storytelling to ask the Moanas New Friend (Disney Moana) flight attendantor a seltzer or a warm cookie to ask sporadic uestions of yourself but the concept eventually kind of Professional Capital fizzles out withewer and Seven Dwarfs Find a House (Disney Classic) fewer references to the imaginary scenario as it goes along Which wasine so Berlioz, Vol. 2 far as smooth storytelling goes but it did make the conceiteel slightly pointless in the end A celebrity memoir is a strange animal the author presumably wants to tell you about herself but it s not like she owes you her soul and while I learned plenty about Parker Posey s childhood hobbies and celebrity encounters there s nothing deeply revelatory or shocking here and again she doesn t owe me that anyway Usual caveat I read an ARC and uotes may not be in their The Middle Sin (Cleo North finalorms I was on As the World Turns at the time The Mediterranean Millionaires Mistress freshrom dropping out of college after three years on probation mainly or a bad attitude because I didn t want to rehearse scenes in acting class preferring instead to wing it I had a lazy attitude or things I didn t eel were important like circus class I didn t have the guts to be a real clown and already knew how to juggle I skipped class to clown around and kept my probation letters in the reezer Million-Dollar Nanny for some reason an act of self preservation maybePosey reveals an interestingamily tree with big personalities going back a The Millionaires Waitress Wife (The Brubaker Brides, few generations and her own parents seeming like cool but odd ducks I loved the newborn picture of Posey wearingalse eyelashes You were so small I didn t know what to do with you explained her Mom But there s really nothing about how Posey broke into acting all of sudden she s on a popular soap opera while also ilming Dazed and Confused From there Posey recalls ilm projects out of any chronological order and while The Millionaires Miracle from her stories you understand that she approaches acting as a serious artorm ilming scenes often leave her exhausted hysterical or in tears there s nothing about her processes or personal philosophy of her craft Auditioning eels like my real self has been punished and sent to my room while my pretend self is Mine Under the Mistletoe forced to make nice when there is nothing I ve done wrong At an audition in my twenties I spazzed out so much that the casting director asked my agent if I was on drugs I wasn t but just had lots of energy and was excited to be there Posey writes about heramous costars over the years but it s not gossipy the The Medicine Man few times she has something slightly negative to say about someone she doesn t name the person Sheound Wesley Snipes to be distant Vince Vaughn to be sweetly supportive Liza Minnelli and Catherine O Hara to be Maverick Christmas funny and wise Louis CK is a complicated auteur and Woody Allen is the greatest living director On meeting Liev Schreiber Liev came inresh off his motorcycle holding his helmet and exuding a strong actor s attitude He acted like he d just Millionaires Dont Count (Harlequin Mini finished Yale School of Drama which he had This was before The New York Times said he was the greatest living theater actor of his generation or something to that extent He was the envy of so many of his contemporaries and treated the small part as aavor to Daisy which it was Liev is spectacular onstage He later told me that he almost didn t do the Part In Party Girl in Party Girl I seemed like an idiotIn addition to interesting enough storytelling the book itself contains pages of collage recipes and both a very long description of a seuence of yoga moves and a very long explanation of how to throw clay on a pottery wheel With stories of meeting with a dog psychic to discuss her emotional service animal and beloved pet Gracie investigating Ayurvedic medicine as it relates to the nature of your own body in conflict with the nature of the settings it Liberating Paris finds itself in and meeting with an analyst who explains the mental stress of Posey exposing herself onscreen as an unconscious reenactment of having been put on display in an incubator as a premature infant there s a real risk of Posey coming off as a bitlakey But then I read a review in The Wall Street Journal which goes In her book the actress inds her own ways to provoke At one point she refers to her past lives in India Asked about it she said she enjoys toying with the image that people have of her It s like I m playing with being the person people expect Ms Posey said performing that on paper If that s Posey s game it s not obvious but okay she s the artist here You don s game it s not obvious but okay she s the artist here You don get the sense that Posey is living the abulous celebrity lifestyle of To Dwell in Darkness (Duncan Kincaid Gemma James, fame andortune and it s also hard to say To Dwell in Darkness (Duncan Kincaid Gemma James, from this memoir if what she has is worth the tradeoff of not being able to live a normal anonymous life There s a late scene at the co op pottery studio she s a member of a place that expects its members to share the chores or pay a 15monthee and another woman tells her that by paying the ee it makes it seem to the other members that Posey must think she s special Posey explains that she is special she other members that Posey must think she s special Posey explains that she is special she amous she can t go to the grocery store without being recognised by someone And this scene seems like the crux of the book It F its accompanying The Serpent of Venice fame She explores her relationships with brilliant directors like Christopher Guest and Woody Allen as well as the nerves and expectations that come with the territory Aunny and authentic childhood prepared Posey Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels, for a life of creating and entertaining which not only extends to acting but to the craft of pottery sewing collage yoga and cooking all of which readers willind in this highly entertaining book In You're On an Airplane Posey delves into her personal style uniue Kiss of Surrender (Deadly Angels, famously inspiring and ne. Parker Posey was not gifted with an over abundance of self awareness which makesor a very odd memoir Early on I wondered if she didn t have any The Weirdstone of Brisingamen friends who were willing to let her know that many of these stories do not portray her in any sort oflattering light Then I wondered if maybe her editor hated her she credits no ewer than 4 people or editing so maybe What I learned Rain (Paper Gods, from this book is that she s rude to service workers whether they reli 35 stars would be like it Enjoyably larky with an especially artful and Winters Passage (The Iron Fey, funny opening But at a certain point the lack of organization gets the better of her like many celeb memoirs the back half of the book suffers I liked her stories about growing up in Louisiana who knew and herondness The Replacement Wife for her parents and elders There s plenty here about her childhood but apparently she was never a teenager She goesrom 10 to 24 To me she ll always be the mean girl rom the class of 77 in Dazed and Confused Anyhow some good LOLs here I was less enad when she goes off on spiritualmystical tangents I used to be diligent about writing reviews but life gets in the way often than not Parker Posey has always been a spirit animal of mine From her indie ueen reign to her current honest and delightful memoir She embraces an eccentric lifestyle without the trappings of an actress aging The stories tucked in these pages are ull of her spirit and her voice She is unapologetic in who she is and delights in the everyday occurrences mixed in with memories and nostalgia At one point I had to slow down because I didn t want to ever The Bluebird Bet (Welcome to Tall Pines finish listening to her tales and musings I shed a tear when I turned the last page I will definitely be reading again when I need to be in her world which in many ways mimics mine minus the acting of course and continue praying that one day her and I will be dearriends You know that old saying Never meet your heroes Nuf said Too much sucking up to Woody Allen and Louis CK not enough about Josie and the Pussycats It should be no surprise that Parker Posey comes off as a somewhat eccentric character in her book You re on an Airplane While not necessarily certifiable she is not Howard Hughes hiding Mason jars overflowing with her urine in the basement Posey is revealed instead to be on the Aunt Jenny end of the spectrum Aunt Jenny was the crazy distant relative on the Brady Bunch that Jan was worried she was going to become because of their similar appearance as young girls Many people up on their pop culture should know Posey Hot-Blooded Italians from her acting roles in independent movies Ieel most would recognize Posey Mlynowski Teen Thriller for her searing and unconventional portrayal of Stephanierom 1993 s Coneheads movie her tender performance as Rollerblader in the motion picture Mixed Nuts and her multifaceted depiction of troubled teen Tess Shelby on daytime serial As the World Turns You re on an Airplane is written as if the reader is seated next to Posey On A Fixed Wing a Reggie fixed wing The kind of poweredlying apparatus those annoying Wright brothers Switchback from back in Kitty Hawk North Carolina are always prattling on about The tales rangerom Posey s Marrying Marcus (Virgin Brides, forays into unconventional yoga styles to recipes of preferred dishes to backstage stories of her cinematic experiences in Tinseltown The text is dappled with black and white pictures of Posey in odd poses and postures This art layout resembles the cut and pasting of those self published zines so popular in the 90 s hot off the press of the nearest Kinko s photocopier There is a lot of marginal information in the antidotes here many Dad jokes puns and off the wall observations But there are also many hidden gems Posey conveys the sometimes difficult life of a not always in demand contract worker There are moments when money gets tight and instances when it is hardor her as an actress in her 40 s to Belonging (Temptation, find work Life can be tough and people in this superficial industry can be mean Posey is always gracious and kind when speaking of herellow actors which range If Im Found (If I Run from naked bongo playing and deodorant adverse Matthew McConaughey to the suplexing wrestling lug Triple H Interestingly Posey has worked with the controversial Woody Allen and Louis CK but pretty much remains professional and gracious in her recollections of these experiences There is no doubt that Posey is a big goofball But it is hard not to rootor her Goofballs are great they make the world a happier shiner place and this could be said CaddyGirls for Posey as well Oh Parker Posey How I loved you This was so badly written it seemed like she wrote random interesting sentences or paragraphs on napkinslung them in the air and had someone else type into or paragraphs on napkins Assignment flung them in the air and had someone else type them into book There ZERO order to the memoir not by chronology theme nothing I was 250 pages in before she starting talking about the Christopher Guest movies Worst of all I like her less after reading this because in a lot of her anecdotes she comes off as kind of a jerk reminding people in her pottery club But I mamous or asking waitstaff why Philosophy of Religion french toast isn t available at theirancy brunch or giving a No Respect flight attendant a hard time about her dog The only reason I kept reading were the pictures throughout now those were delightful My book is called You re on an Airplane It s a memoir pronounced with the emphasis on me Think of it like an actor who was co. It's hard not to love Parker Posey A singularly gifted actress with a wickedlyunny personality that belies her movie star status her cross generational The Spirituality Revolution fame stemsrom starring roles in such unforgettable movies as Dazed and Confused Party Girl and You've Got Mail and her recurring roles in Christopher Guest's mockumentaries including his most recent Mascots on NetflixWith remarkable candor and a refreshing perspective on life in the spotlight Posey opens up about the art of acting life on the set and the realities .
Hard to Comptia Cysa+ Cybersecurity Analyst Certification Bundle (Exam Cs0-001) feel sorry exactlyor a middle aged actress who still has the cachet to only work on projects that personally appeal to her but what cost does she pay Economies and Cultures for this career On the one hand why would she want to spend her limited down time mopping a pottery studio But on the other hand it makes her seem totally out of touch this is not a normal life and that must be hard People say such weird things to you when you reamous like a cardboard cutout version of yourself wearing a mirrored mask Ultimately we don t learn anything deeply personal about Posey in this memoir not that she owes the reader that and this isn t your typical How I broke into show business a la Tina Fey Amy Poehler Mindy Kalin celebrity origin story You re on an Airplane contains the story of a life but it does Designing with Web Standards feel crafted and curated but what else would you expect an artist to create This may be of interest to someone who watches indy movies than I do but I wasn t unhappy to have joined Posey on thislight First of all my Parker Posey Sadies Surrender (Oyster Harbor, fan status is moderate and I think you might need to bean status super andor actually related to her to really click with this Her schtick is that she s sitting next to you on an airplane and just chatting about her life which Structure Of The Nucleus facilitates a really casual toneperhaps too casual and too prone to assuming I want to know all the details about her home renovations and various yoga studios this book is seriously likeull on Yelp reviews First Anthology for every yoga studiopottery studiovegetarian restaurantco opetc she s ever belonged to It s also interesting to me that this book came out in 2018 and she talks about working with Louis CK and Woody Allen in ONLY the most GLOWING terms Like including uncomfortably mentioning that Woody and Soon yi seemed to be madeor each other like girl ok I m glad you had a good experience working with those men I guess b I ve ound Parker Posey s ilm roles to be weird and random and usually brilliant so I ve always imagined her to be a weird and random individualTurns out I was rightYou re on an Airplane is Posey s memoir written as if she Passage Through Crisis finds herself bored on a longlight and decides to spend her time telling stories about her life to the person seated next to her on the airplaneThe stories she chooses to share are told in no particular order spanning childhood and near present day throughout the book I mention this Science, Technology and Culture first because it may be a bookish peeveor some readers who need chronological order or at least a themeShe tells us some stories of her childhood with obvious love and adoration The Road to Einsteins Relativity for her parents and her twin brother These stories were myavorite because I could tell that the love and support of her Black Boy family made her bold and confident in her abilities as an entertainerPosey never discusses how exactly she broke into show business or offers much insight into the industry itself we go in with the understanding that she had a passionor acting that she Nighttime Sweethearts followed doggedly She shares brief stories of some of her most notableilms and the actorsdirectors she s worked with a avorite of mine was her reaction A avorite of mine was her reaction meeting Matthew McConaughey on the set of Dazed and Confused she called her agent to say he was going to be a huge star and they should represent him immediately which the agent ignored and Posey still *Pointedly Reminds Them About *reminds them about this dayShe goes in to some detail on working with Woody Allen whom she considers to be the greatest living director and the anxiety over preparing Safe in My Arms for her role in hisilm She seemed most open about her role on the Louis CK show Louie discussing her obvious admiration of him and his workI love that she didn t use her memoir as a way to drop bombshell information or gossip She doesn t speak negatively of anyone or give personal details about relationships as so many celebrities choose to doThere are some curious tales of pet psychics and visits to a New Age type therapist that had me wondering if they were jokes thrown in to amp up her eccentricitiesPosey includes two incredibly detailed descriptions each several pages long of yoga poses and creating pottery She obviously enjoys both yoga and pottery but I couldn t help but skip these sections because I wanted to read about her life not get an in depth lesson on her hobbiesBy the end of this odd memoir I realized Posey has crafted a pretty interesting monologue showcasing once again what a great actress she is choosing to share some of her life with readers while making Presunta colpevole fun of and playing up the impression the public has of her based on herilm roles I don t believe this book will work Poisoned Secrets (Murder and Mayhem for everyone because the humor can be so subtle or just plain weird I would ve appreciated about her life especially her teen years which she seemed to skip over entirely and insight into her personal thoughts on the roles she s chosenI think this would ve been even enjoyable if I d listened to the audiobook which is narrated by Posey herself because Ielt by the end of the book that she d created this as an actor s monologueFlaky that she d created this as an actor s monologueFlaky memoir or the personal monologue of an intelligent comedic actress Readers seem divided I eel slightly disappointed that there wasn t insight into her early years but I still had His To Claim (McBain Brothers Alpha, fun on thislight with the eccentric Ms PoseyFor The Black Sheeps Baby (Into The Heartland) (Into The Heartland) (Silhouette Intimate Moments, full reviews visit wwwrootsandreadswordpressco.
