Happy 74th birthday to the greatest director of all time, Martin Scorsese! Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese grew up in the same neighborhood but never talked as kids. Brian De Palma was the one who officially introduced them to each other in the early 70′s and they clicked automatically. In 1978, Martin Scorsese was at an all-time low  due to a near overdose resulting from an addiction to cocaine. Robert De Niro visited him at the hospital and told him that he had to clean himself up and make this movie about a boxer. At first, Scorsese refused (he didn’t like sports movies anyway), but due to De Niro’s persistence, he eventually gave in. Many claim that De Niro saved Scorsese’s life by getting him back into work. Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese have collaborated on a total of 8 films together: Mean Streets (1973), Taxi Driver (1976), New York, New York (1977), Raging Bull (1980), The King Of Comedy (1983), Goodfellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991), and Casino (1995).

Happy Birthday Robert De Niro - August 17

Favorite actor series | Robert De Niro:  “In some ways, playing the part of a younger Vito Corleone was a passing of the torch to De Niro from the similarly styled acting legend Marlon Brando, who won an Oscar portraying Vito in the original Godfather. De Niro learned a Sicilian dialect of Italian and spoke it fluently throughout the film, a testament to his method approach. While just as menacing as Johnny Boy and LaMotta, De Niro played it quiet, showing a restraint that contrasted Mean Streets but belayed his power as a cinematic performer. He not only accepted the torch from Brando but carried it forward, earning an Oscar (Vito Corleone is still the only character to give two separate performers an Academy Award) and coming into his own as the definitive actor of his generation.”

Summary: From casino winnings to even his own clumsy feats Namjoon believed they happened for a reason—it had nothing to do with luck! He had no thoughts of changing how he felt until he met you. Because until then, he had never been this unlucky.


You lived life numbly. From the start of the day to the end, all you thought about was making enough money to pay off your mom’s debt. You rarely ever got sleep thanks to the things that bothered you at night and it was always made worse because of lack of sleep. You knew that if you actually got the chance to sleep, those things wouldn’t bother you as much. But, unfortunately, sleep never came but those things did.

What are those things? Well, they’re ghosts. You, from a young age, were haunted by ghosts. It was a constant badgering of spirits wanting help from you or just spirits wanting someone to talk to. It wasn’t like you disliked them but they often got annoying and you hated the poltergeists. If you were to compare it to something, it’d be the Internet—a place with generally nice people but the haters and demanding people got in the way of the fun and eventually you wanted to quit. You wanted to quit so bad.
