and there is another film in the making

Just UGH!

Whatever the truth is I don’t even care at this point; I just need all these people to get their acts together. The lying to the fandom (and I am not just talking about personal lives) has got to stop. There was no reason for telling us that Droughtlander would be shorter only to unceremoniously pull the rug out from under us and tell us oh by the way we won’t be back until September like it’s no big deal. To pretend they all aren’t on a break right now from all things Outlander when they clearly are is yet another unnecessary lie. To offer up no promotion whatsoever to the fans that isn’t done by the fans themselves is pathetic. Some of us actually thought they might use this obvious break in filming to at least do some see and be seen type promo for the show but nope. And this hot and cold freeze each other out nonsense makes them all look like jackasses of the highest order. I just really have never seen anything like this. Why didn’t they just cancel the show after season 2 if this was the sort of lackluster effort they were going to put forth going forward? They are all to blame for this absolutely nonsensical behavior and I don’t have high hopes for the fact that Outlander’s best days are well behind it at this point.

anonymous asked:

What do you usually do when you feel really sad and uncreative?

This is a really difficult question to answer right now because I’m right in the thick of it, but I’ll try:

I turn to literature a lot. I think literature is a necessary aide to art practice and developing a habit of reading as much as you can is crucial. All my professors in school assign works of fiction in order to discuss ideas about art. Just recently, in my sculpture course, we read a really great Brautigan short story in relation to the topic of research-based artmaking. I found it very helpful.

Cinema is another great thing to turn to. I had to read a lot of film theory and criticism in a class I was taking called New Genres (which is essentially a catch-all term for ephemeral works of art that can’t be commodified like performance, video, etc). Watch films that make you think, watch films that make you feel good. Recently I’m very into Fellini and Rohmer.

If your mind is tired and you’re exhausted in every sense of the word and find it difficult to focus on anything even slightly academic (very much like me at the moment), go outside. If it’s too cold, take a drive. If you don’t have a car, ride the bus somewhere, anywhere. Open your windows and light a candle and play your favorite album if the weather is nice. Go somewhere alone, get lost in a crowd. Immerse your senses in something. It’s hard, I know. I’m right there with you. 

Bee Movie is on netflix so I watched the whole thing

  • Bees in the movie live in a western-human-style society, complete with two-parent households and college etc, but they still make constant jokes about what bee societies are like in real life
  • References are made at the beginning of the film to the fact that bees have very short life spans and the main bee characters in the movie are expecting to live for another week at most, but then the movie itself takes place over several weeks or possibly months and they don’t seem to age or die
  • yes. yes, the bee presumably fucks the human woman
  • she’s, like, into him, sexually
  • I know that the weirdness of that is like a central part of why this movie has become a meme but listen: you can’t understand how truly off-putting that whole plot point is until you’ve actually watched it play out in front of your own eyes
  • the woman is married, too, so like, she has an emotional affair with a bee that drives her husband away in a scene where she tells him that “he’s the nicest bee I’ve met in a long time,” implying that she’s, like, known other bees on a personal level, to which he responds, “what are you talking about?” and you think he’s going to point out the obvious absurdity of her statement but instead he continues with, “are there OTHER bugs in your life?!”
  • all the bees are heavily coded as Jewish, and there’s a scene where Jerry Seinfeld’s bee parents are like, “do you have a girlfriend? I hope she’s bee-ish! She’s not a wasp, is she?” because… you know… wasp… WASP… get it
  • there is a Bee Larry King, who is played by Larry King and is, like, literally Larry King but a bee
  • did I mention that in the bee’s society, all the bees choose/are assigned honey-production jobs that they will work every day until they die, except like, there is evidence that other jobs exist - there is bee television, for instance, which would presumably require like, bee camera crews and bee producers and bee actors etc etc, so like, which bees are working those jobs? how does that work??
  • apparently in the world of this movie all you have to do to sue the entire human race is mail a letter
  • the whole court case comes down to the fact that no human being who isn’t a bee keeper has ever heard of a bee smoker and they all find it barbaric and horrifying
  • bee smokers in this world contain, like… nicotine and tar? like all the ingredients of actual commercial cigarettes? 
  • beekeepers in this world all hate bees, there is a scene where two beekeepers are making conversation with each other and their whole conversation is just about how much they hate bees, interspersed with manic cackling
  • instead of deliberating and coming back with a verdict the jury concludes the court case by just chanting “FREE THE BEES!” until the judge yells, “I FIND IN FAVOR OF THE BEES!!!!” 
  • AND THAT ISN’T EVEN THE END OF THE MOVIE there’s still like 20 minutes of plot I just
  • I can’t go on, I’m sorry
  • I may never be the same

Okay something that’s been on my mind about Moana. 

I can’t name another film that romanticizes and older woman like this one. Grandma Tala was not just a wise old lady, she was a rounded character. She was lively and wasn’t confined in her actions to stay graceful. Her face was expressive, she was allowed to make funny faces and be a comic relief. She was just as much of the “rebellious princess” as Moana herself.

And better yet, she was wearing clothes that didn’t entirely cover her up. They exposed her back and limbs, and even animated her under-arm flab. She, and her age, were celebrated rather than diminished. I mean really, when’s the last time you saw an old lady with exposed skin, large/unapologetic tattoos, who had a bechdel-passing relationship with her granddaughter that glorified the unique bond between two women?

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: wHY the fuck won't they make an obi wan kenobi spin off movie starring EWAN MCGREGOR who was the fucking star of the prequels, the man who really fucking wants to be in another star wars film, a man who is a GREAT actor and a person and is so passionate about acting and loves star wars and just please give a man a chance and it'd be perfect he's in his prime, his age is perfect for the role of obi wan between ep iii and ep iv and NOBODY could play the role of obi wan better than him and HE DESERVES IT and the fans deserve to have this movie !!

Hayao Miyazaki Wants to Make Another Film

Anime News Network reported information uncovered on Japanese TV special "Owaranai Hito Miyazaki Hayao.” Although Miyazaki retired after what was supposed to be his final film—The Wind Rises (2013)—he now has plans to return to feature film yet again.

Miyazaki had recently been working on a 3D animated short for the Ghibli Museum, but the NHK special revealed that he’s had a feature film pitch in the back of his mind since August.

Currently, Miyazaki has already started the storyboard process for the film and suggested a possible 2019 release should it be officially picked up.

John Boyega’s only upcoming starring/leading role that he’s booked since starring as the male lead in Star Wars is in a movie that he’s co-producing. He’s literally having to make his own opportunities. Meanwhile, Daisy Ridley, who’d never been in a film before Star Wars, has 3 starring roles booked and is in talks for another. Hollywood is racist trash. 

  • What she says: im fine
  • What she means: Cleopatra VII was an extremely intelligent woman and one of the greatest political minds of her time. She was the first Ptolemaic ruler to learn and speak in Egyptian because she knew how important it was to connect with the locals, but she also recognised Rome as an emerging power and formed alliances with them instead of making Rome her enemy. She probably saved her kingdom from absorption into Rome during her rule, and yet society has still turned her into yet another one of history's sex objects, who was good for nothing other than her pretty face, a myth that today's media continues to propogate. When will old white men int he film industry learn th

Another aspect of the LotR books that didn’t make it into the movies: Legolas is a cheerful dweeb. He’s pretty stoic in the films, but his book characterization gives him a number of dorky lines and seems to imply that he does a lot of skipping and humming while everyone else is complaining about back pain and sore feet.

I love being a storyteller because I love connecting with people. I love disappearing into other worlds. It’s also a way that we understand one another even though we may have differences. I think differences are great because they make our lives more fascinating and I’m grateful for all of the storytelling in films that I’ve experienced.

'The Bachelor' contestants fall in love with each other
Just because you don’t win The Bachelor doesn’t mean you can’t find love on the popular show.

This is the first time I have ever been interested in The Bachelor: Two contestants on the Australian version of the show, Megan Marx and Tiffany Scanlon, found love not with the *bachelor* they were competing for, but with one another. 

Here’s what Megan posted on Instagram in honor of Tiffany’s birthday:

I met Tiffany in a very strange situation. Well… we were kind of dating the same guy. And it was filmed and put on TV 😂. From that first cocktail party, it was like this instant calibration between souls, as if we had known each other once before. Friendship ripened into something bolder, trust in a very strange situation was formed, and now every adventure we have rivals the other- and continues to make plans for itself. Yesterday I flew this beautiful woman to The Abrolhos islands for her 30th birthday! I have to admit that I felt so so proud to be with her, my favourite person, celebrating such a momentous occasion on the water- a mutual love of ours. She is so confident in the ocean and in every adventure, as if every new experience is a winning of the lottery somehow; a chance to grow and learn and develop. To Tiffany, experience wins over the worldly acquisition of ‘things’ every time- and I think this is why she is so open-minded, so accepting of others, so fun and so at ease with letting winds blow her towards a variety of opportunities. She’s helped me to disintegrate many of the ideals I’ve had that were harmful (about relationships, about career and 'stability’) and for that I feel set free. Thank you for always asking questions (detective Tiff), for being curious about people, ideologies and the universe; for loving people with such a wholesome love that I don’t know if I would ever be able to emulate. It inspires me. Happy Birthday Tiffany. I love you.

This is the reality television story I’m here for. 

  • What he says: I'm fine
  • What he means: love triangles completely swamp the film industry and are an extremely overused trope meanwhile actual non monogamous relationships are hardly ever shown because they make monogamous people uncomfortable™ because they think polyamory and polygamy are the same thing but in the popular 80s film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, we see three teenagers who never get envious or possessive (except over a car) and take care of one another without making Cameron feel like the third wheel when they could of easily made jokes about that and we need more poly or hell even just healthy friendship triads that work desperately because they exist in real life.
