Manhunter, Red Dragon, …And the Woman Clothed with the Sun (S3E09)

“Lounds.” Graham’s voice was loud and Crawford got in front of him fast. “Lounds, you write lying shit, and The National Tattler is an asswipe. Keep away from me.”

Red Dragon, Thomas Harris

Pauline Lennards Palmer (American, 1867 - 1938): Studio Interior with Model (via Richard Norton Gallery)

From the gallery website:

Pauline Lennards Palmer became one of the most notable American woman painters to emerge from the Midwest during the early Twentieth Century. An accomplished artist, lecturer and first woman president of the Chicago Society of Artists, Palmer enjoyed a successful career which spanned for over half a century. Palmer began her studies in 1892 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, working under William Merritt Chase, the renowned master of American Impressionism. In 1900, Chase persuaded Palmer to study in Paris at the Académie Julian, where she painted for three years. In Paris, Palmer studied under the American Impressionist figure painter, Richard E. Miller, as well as the noted French painter Gustave Courtois. Palmer’s work received international acclaim, winning a bronze medal at the Académie Colarossi and a silver medal at the Académie de la Grande Chaumiere. Palmer exhibited at the Paris Salon consecutively from 1903-1906, participating again in 1911.

Upon her return to the United States, Pauline Palmer settled in her native Chicago, establishing a studio at the city’s historic Tree Studio Building, home to many notable Chicago artists. There Palmer associated with fellow painters John and Anna Lee Stacey, Oliver Dennett Grover and Louis Betts, among others. Palmer’s repeated participation at the annual exhibitions of the Art Institute of Chicago is quite impressive. From 1896 to 1938 she exhibited her work thirty-two times at the museum’s prestigious annual juried shows, frequently receiving medals and honors for her paintings. She received her first solo exhibition at the Art Institute in 1913. Palmer gained national attention for her paintings exhibited at the St. Louis Exposition of 1904, the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of San Francisco in 1915 and the National Society of Women Artits in 1924. Palmer often summered in Massachusetts at the Cape Cod artist colony of Provincetown. There she became an active member of the notable Provincetown Art Association, painting frequently with its leading painter, Charles Hawthorne.

Pauline Palmer achieved sustained recognition as an artist through her figurative and landscape painting. Her vibrant, colorful work was typically executed en plein-air, painting out-of-doors where she could effectively and spontaneously capture the light, atmosphere and color of her subjects.

Paintings by Pauline Palmer are in the collections of institutions including the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago; the San Diego Galleries of Fine Arts, San Diego; the Delgado Museum of Art, New Orleans; the Union League Club of Chicago, among others.

I was watching a game show w my family and there was a category called Edward Norton films and I said family……… please sit down for I was born for this moment

Red Dragon re-watch

Re-watched “Red Dragon” because I wanted to see some actual Red Dragon storyline. So good and yet so sad to be reminded Fuller has already wasted so much time on the supposed Red Dragon episodes to non Red Dragon stuff.

People complain that Hopkins started going over the top with his Hannibal but I’d disagree. He was totally the right amount of pissed off and resentful Hannibal is supposed to be at this point. Mads’s Hannibal in the same exact situation is down right neutered and defeated. I’m also now extra bummed we’re not getting our Hannibal and Chilton showdowns on the show. I was so looking forward to Mads and Raul squaring off.

Only thing I think the show has done better so far is Molly. So sad because I would have loved to seen Hugh kicking ass the way Edward Norton did because he would have been 100 times better than Edward Norton.

I hope the future episodes give Richard and Rutina the chance to shine as Francis and Reba because they both have so much potential. This is supposed to be their story arch and yet we have seen so little of them.

Though thankfully Mads has never had a ponytail. Tony, I love you but what were they thinking with that ponytail at the beginning of the movie? I just want to run up with some scissors and cut it off.

anonymous asked:

Hi! This is anon who wonders about that Jessica/Meryl thing :) I already sent you another part of my ask but maybe you haven't receive it so I'll just go on. In my opinion Meryl always picks Jessica as an example of beauty or talent not to be mean (as many people assume),but she actually thinks that way. Idk. I just feel like Jessica is quite underrated and Meryl is the one who actually gets her phenomen. Why do you think it's different? (any examples?) ps. excuse me my english :* n.

I didn’t receive any other message apart from the first part; how bizarre. 

prepare yourselves for long ass post / summary on jessica and meryl:

• meryl auditioned for the role of dwan [king kong 1976] but was rejected by dino de laurentiis. he called her ugly; she is always reminded of this in interviews. she actually says on graham norton, “not beautiful enough to be in king kong [saying king kong in a sarcastic tone, like it was a shit movie]

• jessica went for the same role, she obviously got the role even the though she had no acting experience unlike meryl [she done tv and stage at the time] so meryl must of had some sub-concious jealousy towards whoever got that role.

• meryl apparently also went for the role of cora in postman always rings twice, but bob rafelson chose jessica instead and even told jessica she was first choice.

• meryl and jessica have been up for the same award a couple of times but the one that everybody talks about it, is the 1983 oscar ceremony where meryl won for sophie’s choice, and jessica won supporting [some say for pity over losing] for tootsie. now jessica was deeply upset, she explains because she wanted kim stanley [who played jessica’s mother in frances] to win but jessica beat her. a lot of people believe if jessica wasn’t put up for both supporting and lead actress awards, she would of indeed won over meryl.

• meryl always talks about the role of patsy cline she wanted in sweet dreams and even beg her friend who was directing the film to cast her but they wanted jessica instead. meryl says, even to this day, she watched the film and couldn’t think of anybody else who could played patsy better than jessica.

• in 1986, meryl [out of africa] and jessica [for sweet dreams] were both nominated for the same oscar but both lost of sally fields. they are seen together with sally at the after party and later on, seen with don [meryl’s husband] and sam [shepard] at the same table, all talking which suggests they were cool with each other, i’m sure meryl told jessica she wanted that part.

• now jessica has said in many interviews she doesn’t like to answer questions where they ask what roles she would of wanted because it’s harsh on the actress who actually played them which meryl has done to jessica twice [king kong and sweet dreams]

• jessica was also asked what her favourite meryl streep movie was in an american horror story interview and she didn’t give an answer, even turning the conversation to kim stanley [which links to the oscar lost back in 1983]

• meryl, of course, compliments jessica’s beauty throughout all her hollywood interviews, and in a couple of interviews shows how insecure she is when being confident about herself; she said once “i say, i can’t do this, they should call jessica lange and get her to do it.” 

• jessica and meryl haven’t done any films together but have come close, when jessica was asked to do diane keatons role in marvins room, which would make them sisters; however she declined. 

• 1999, a photo of meryl, hillary clinton and jessica. they are both talking and looking very happy with each others company. 

• 2004; meryl won a golden globe over jessica. there is a photo of meryl, jessica and al pacino together after the win, jessica seems very happy but meryl is distracted and doesn’t look at jessica once. 

• you sometimes see the camera focus on them when the other is doing a speech [mostly on meryl when jessica is doing one] and she seems happy and interested in what jessica has to say.

• meryl’s daughter grace starred along side jessica in american horror story and they even ask meryl about it, she says [which is hilarious] “she’s in american horror… whatever” and she’s been asked not to watch it by grace because of the violence in freak show [penny’s abuse] 

no doubt these woman admire each other, i just think with them both being born in the same year, you have some kind of competition, with meryl having three oscars, two emmys and jessica with two oscars, three emmys. they are tied in my eyes.

i love them both, i adore them so much, you have no idea.
