History of the day for March 4

In 1928, Konstantin Stanislavski invents "method acting," or simply "the Method." 65 years later Tom Cruise invents the "clapping hands together while grimacing method."

He is such a freak.
I wish he would close his mouth.
Every time he opens it, some of the crazy leaks out & I don't want to catch it!

One time I was in a production in which I played the role of a 70's flower child. Throughout the entire play, I was smoking a "joint." There wasn't a LOT of acting involved, but I made sure to rehearse for days, employing "method acting".

Cheers to the dude who's name I can't pronounce without concerted effort (and fuck that noise).
