Hi Sebastian has this phobia i guess you would call it of eating alone, he won’t eat unless someone is in the same room eating as him, i dont know why and we’ve taken him to the vet to see if it’s a stomach problem on why he wasn’t eating until we started to notice a pattern, only when you’re in the room eating will he start to chow down on his food. So we put his bowl on his side of the table and he eats Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with us. He’ll wait till you’re seated and eating to start on his meal, it’s really sweet, though we still have no idea why he does it.
WHAT THATS THE CUTEST THING EVER OMG
what makes guardians of the galaxy so good is that they’re mostly assholes and fully acknowledge that
everytime there’s supposed to be a sweet or dramatic moment
they ruin it
because they’re assholes
Scientists examine a 15-year-old girl who lived in the Inca Empire, then was sacrificed and remained frozen for 500 years….
Unearthed in 1999 from the 22,000-foot summit of Mount Llullaillaco, a volcano 300 miles west of here near the Chilean border, their frozen bodies were among the best preserved mummies ever found, with internal organs intact, blood still present in the heart and lungs, and skin and facial features mostly unscathed. No special effort had been made to preserve them. The cold and the dry, thin air did all the work. They froze to death as they slept, and 500 years later still looked like sleeping children, not mummies.
This is “the maiden” and she is extraordinary. After a CAT scan or two it was determined that she had tuberculosis. Do you know what this means?!?!? It means that tuberculosis was a preexisting condition and not initially brought over to the Americas by Europeans. WOW
i like her shoes
Of all the fucking things to comment
Quentin Tarantino, “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing”
this is a weird documentary. they use the default pronoun “he” to refer to editors, yet time and again there’s creepy shit in there about the way male directors, with their massive egos, have used these “invisible” non-celebrated women collaborators for their own self-aggrandizement
also tarantino sounds like a fucking sexist prick here
esp. given the fact that women in Hollywood are simply not allowed the opportunities as a director that a white man like him received
they’re second-place little helpmeets who are disallowed from the big time
and they’ve got to ~nurture~ you without getting the kind of credit you get as a white male director
It’s double gross because the drop of editing quality in Django was SO DAMN OBVIOUS. Sally Menke was who defined that delicious postmodern visual handwriting for him (and it’s shameful I only learned that late in art school, after years of considering myself “a film buff”), and her passing is a great loss to the craft.
I didn’t know Sally Menke’s name or how much of the work attributed to The Great Tarantino is hers before tonight
it’s sickening how women’s artistic genius is erased
and Tarantino got exactly what he wanted: someone to “nurture” him and make him look good as an artist
and never be spoken of
never take any of the limelight from him
because fucking nobody cares about women and their achievements
and white male directors have been and continue to be the little feted monstergod babies of Hollywood
Film editing is one of those positions that women take because they can’t get hired as directors. Kind of like how women in the comics industry end up as colorists because noone wants them as the headline artist.
How many great directors have partnered consistently with female editors? A lot of them. Scorsese is a great example. Thelma Schoonmaker has edited every single one of his films since 1980, starting with Raging Bull. She is instrumental to his success. But is she a household name like Scorsese is? Of course not.
Imagine a world where she directed her own films, and what those films could have been like. I’m not saying all film editors wish they were directors or anything. But it’s no coincidence that the position most open to female moviemakers is the most unsung, and that’s part of why there are so few female directors today.
