Week Forty-Three: Success

This week, Tasker House will be tackling the very familiar subject of Success. Let's face it, we're pretty awesome. This blog, pretty awesome. We're kind of hilarious, and we bring the gold like it's nobody's business. But then we make it your business and that makes us even more awesome. Seriously, though, we're a bunch of losers.

The image we have here is by Oliver Chipping, and it depicts the Tenenbaum family of Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums. Gene Hackman's character, Royal Tenenbaum, seems to be a complete failure as a father and a husband. But by the end of the film, we learn that his successful patriarchy is a result of the most important family value one could have - selfishness.

We'll successfully see you next Tuesday.
