Strange change time machine movie


Cher gave a candid interview to Britain's Sunday Times about son Chaz Bono's transitioning , saying that "it's a strange thing for a mother to go through."

The 67-year-old icon sat down with The Sunday Times to talk about her new album, "Closer to the Truth," her first in nearly 12 years. The conversation quickly turned to talk of her relationship with her 44-year-old son, who began transitioning in 2008.

“Oh yes, I had a hard time,” Cher admitted . “I didn’t have a hard time in the beginning when Chaz came to see me and told me, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I said, ‘Well, if you’re miserable, then you’ve got to do it.’ But then as it was starting to happen, you know, it’s a strange change for a mother to go through ."

When Chaz first began the process, Cher said she was afraid to see her child in case she didn't recognize him. She even asked him to save his old answering machine greeting. The singer said it was difficult for her, but said she doesn't think about it anymore. She admitted to screwing up the correct pronouns "all the time."

“For the people who don’t understand it I try to help them understand, by saying, you know, 'I just love being a woman so much, but if I woke up tomorrow and I was a man I couldn’t function,'" she told the Times. "And that’s the only way to describe it to someone who doesn’t understand. It’s hard to relate to, 'Oh, I must change my sex.' But I know if, by some miraculous something I woke up as a man, I’d hate it so much I can’t tell you.”

In a separate interview with the Sunday Mirror's Notebook magazine , Cher said her relationship with Chaz today is better than it has been in years.

I think most people imagine that the world will never change.  We see old people and imagine they were always old.  We see children and imagine that they will always be full of cherub-like innocence and beauty.

And that’s for a good reason, to an extent.  We need to live in the present, right?  Need to be focused on what’s in front of us, on doing what we do.

But there’s a danger to all this “the present is forever” thinking.  When we forget that we’re going to age, that we are aging, then it’s easy to just go about our day to day lives without urgency.  It’s why, I think, so many people are willing to spend their time watching the  Kardashians , doing drugs, eating unhealthy, etc etc.  There are so many things we do because we  imagine that time is forever.  Because we imagine that we could always do it  one day .

And most of all, we like to imagine that we will never die.  That life will never end.  That what’s happening right now is just an ongoing process, one which allows us endless opportunities to make up for the mistakes we are making now.

And that’s why I think it’s important that we take a moment to look at the world and to remember that the only constant is change.  Below are some photos to remind us of just that.

Below are a collection of photos that take various stages of our history and superimpose them in various ways onto the present day.  These artists found an incredibly powerful way to remind us that every step we take is shaped and evolved by those before us.
