Lester picked up a screwdriver. “You see this? It’s a tool. You can pick it up and you can unscrew stuff or screw stuff in. You can use the handle for a hammer. You can use the blade to open paint cans. You can throw it away, loan it out, or paint it purple and frame it.” He thumped the printer. “This [Disney in a Box] thing is a tool, too, but it’s not your tool. It belongs to someone else — Disney. It isn’t interested in listening to you or obeying you. It doesn’t want to give you more control over your life.”
“If you don’t control your life, you’re miserable. Think of the people who don’t get to run their own lives: prisoners, reform-school kids, mental patients. There’s something inherently awful about living like that. Autonomy makes us happy.

A lot of people enjoy taking pictures of famous people if they have the chance to do so. What might be even cooler (and rarer) would be to have your picture taken by a real cinematic legend. See Sean Connery lounging with a SLR camera after the jump and just imagine he’s taking a photo of you.
