In 2000, playwright-cum filmmaker-Kenneth Lonergan’s quirky little sibling drama You Can Count on Me broke out of the festival circuit and went on to be nominated for two Academy Awards (for screenplay and for actress Laura Linney’s star turn). Its success was powered, in part, by the electric performance of a virtually unknown 32-year-old leading man. By the time he booked the part, Mark Ruffalo had already given up on acting at least once, in the mid-’90s, heading home to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to work for his commercial-painter father. But he came back, again and again—auditioning, he once said, 800 times without booking a single role. READ MORE

Hi Mark! I'm not sure if you are aware but when I click you're header picture or your "home" button, it links back to another URL called "mruff1122" and it leads to a nothing found page not your blog page. I just wanted you to know because there are flashing/quick moving/brightly coloured gifs there and that can cause problems for some people with disorders like epilepsy (not to mention it's not the page I was looking for! lol). I was just wondering if you could fix it? Thank you. :)

Don’t let the Bureau of Land Management expanded fracking on land surrounding New Mexico’s Chaco Culture National Historical Park. I have been to this place and it is a national treasure. It is the most ancient remains of civilization in this country and one of the least developed and most remote national treasures. It must be saved from this. Tell the BLM we won’t stand for it.
