Rosalie Favell | I awoke to find my spirit had returned. 1999

From the series Plain(s) Warrior Artist, Favell is seen here working with Louis Riel’s last words “My people will sleep for one hundred years and when they awake it will be the artist that gives them their spirit back…”

Early forms of photoshop are used in this image, as Favell edits herself front and centre of the famous scene of The Wizard of Oz.  Favell places herself in the role of the heroine of the film and while taking up the viewpoint enforcing acknowledgement of her Metis heritage in doing so. Favell lies in bed covered in a Hudson Bay Blanket while Louis Riel seems to check in on her.

The assertion of Favell’s Metis imagery into such a well-known piece of White Settler ‘culture’ be interpreted as a form of resistance via occupation. This assertion of Metis identity is powerful with the addition of the Hudson Bay blanket, thinking about what that blanket and pattern can mean for many Indigenous people and specifically the Metis connection to the Fur trade and the HBC.  Louis Riel too adds this persistence of resistance as from all angles contemporary and historical Metis identity is being inserted into the scene. Keeping Favell’s own image in colour brings forth her own identity as present and rejects the notion of Indigenous people/culture being in the past. 

Favell inserts herself and her heritage onto the predominant oppressive culture and in doing so brings her own identity into the foreground in an act of resistance to White Settler culture and oppression.

Shailene Woodley and Jai Courtney team up for ‘Arkie’

Shailene Woodley, Jai Courtney and online star Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor have joined the cast of animated feature Arkie.
The film, being introduced to buyers in Cannes, is created by Nathan Jurevicius, the award-winning artist behind the Scarygirl graphic novel and video game, and directed by his brother Luke Jurevicius (AACTA Award-winning Figaro Pho).
Arkie is a fantastical adventure about an inventive and inquisitive young girl, Arkie (Woodley), who must leave the safety of her home and embark on an epic journey to a dazzling but dangerous metropolis to rescue her father Blister from the clutches of the evil scientist Dr. Maybee (Courtney). Bachelor, with over 16 million online followers, will play the role of Bunniguru, a comedic adventurer who relies on his “book of useless proverbs” and wit to get him out of many jams.
“It’s been a brilliant journey participating in Arkie’s evolution over the years,” said the Jurevicius brothers. “We can’t wait to work with our wonderfully talented actors in bringing her world to life on the big screen. It’s so great that this film has attracted such significant talent. We knew Arkie’s story was strong, but having Shailene, Jai and Andrew are important confirmation that we are creating something truly special.”
The picture is an Australian / Canadian co-production lead by Sophie Byrne of Passion Pictures Australia (Academy Award winner The Lost Thing) and Nicole Stinn of Nitrogen Studios (Sausage Party). John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) also serves as an exec producer. Luma Pictures are on board as the animation studio for Australia.
We are so excited that Arkie has engaged such high calibre talent,“ said producer Sophie Byrne. "Bachelor brings his unique comedic edge to Bunniguru, Woodley’s distinct voice, the right combination of vulnerability and savvy of Arkie, and Courtney the perfect blend of charisma mixed with sinister charm for the evil scientist, Dr Maybee”.
Odin’s Eye Entertainment (OEE) will ramp up sales in Cannes this year, already having closed deals with a number of key territories Madman (Australia / NZ), Italy (Notorious), Baltics (Best Film), Yugoslavia (Dexin), Middle East (Phonencia), Phillipines (Captive)
“Arkie is like no other,” said OEE founder Michael Favelle who also doubles as an exec producer. “It has the creative sensibility of Miyazaki fused with the vibrant colours of The Lorax and the heart and warmth of Amelie.”
UTA is packaging and also handling the U.S. sale, with further A-list cast in negotiation. Arkie is anticipated to hit screens in late 2019.
Woodley is represented by UTA and managed by Management 360, Courtney is also represented by UTA and managed by Silver Lining Entertainment and Morrissey Management, and Bachelor is repped by UTA and managed by Christina Bachelor.

Bei tempi quelli in cui mi perdevo in lunghi elenchi puntati e punti un cui elencavo millemila cose, quando in realtà basta non divagare, essere brevi, concisi e belli.

Belli, quello sempre.

Il bello piace, il bello ti fa bello, il bello è per il bello, il bello è troppo bello.

E insomma, bei tempi sì, però bastano davvero poche parole per creare un pensiero, senza necessità di formulare frasi intere, tipo quel test psicologico delle associazioni in cui ti sparano una serie di parole sconnesse tra loro e devi rispondere la prima cosa che ti viene in mente e poi niente, o stai ok o sei da internare.

E niente, dicevo.

Bastano poche favelle, senza verbi o proposizioni, per formulare un pensiero. Tipo che ne so.

Pioggia.

Vaniglia.

Montale.

Lenzuola.

Mia moglie.

Anna e Marco.

Pizza.

Libri.

Vita.

Ancora mia moglie.

Ancora un po’ Dalla.

Dalla ancora.

E basta.


Ciao.

Canto V - Lussuriosi

<<La prima di color di cui novelle 

tu vuo’ saper >>, mi disse quelli allotta, 

<< fu imperadrice di molte favelle.      

A vizio di lussuria fu sì rotta,

che libito fé licito in sua legge

per tòrre il biasimo in cui era condotta.>>

 // @arancin-and-volcanoes

La nostra Lucia la collocherei nel girone dei Lussuriosi, senza dubbio! 💜

Perché mi fate venire queste idee in testa? Alla fine produco ste’ robe! AHAHAHAHA

Prossimo lussurioso sarà Gabriele, non vedo l'ora di disegnarlo!

theblazeofmemory  asked:

Write me more Jehanparnasse. Anything. Make it as cliche and corny or heartbreakingly sad as you want, I am always in need of more of this ship forever.

This is a perfect prompt, because it gives me a chance to use an AU I was working on- the 1920s/Agatha Christie AU. However, I will say that this post does contain some spoilers for the plot/storyline of the AU, if/when I finally turn it into a proper Fic.

Pacing the floor, cigarette between shaking fingers. Hair dishevelled, something that seemed close to impossible for him, strands of dark hair falling across his eyes.

Montparnasse’s life had taken a rather sharp turn for the worse within the space of an hour.

There was a soft knock on the door, and Montparnasse flinched. The action was so instinctual that he wasn’t quite aware of what he was doing before a switchblade was open in his hand.

A soft voice came from the hall.

“‘Parnasse? It’s me…”

Montparnasse shut the knife and ran a hand over his hair, trying to regain his composure.

“'Parnasse?”

He dropped his cigarette onto the nearest ashtray and opened the door of the compartment.

A familiar figure was standing in the doorway, a look of concern on his face. Prouvaire.

Montparnasse tugged him into the compartment and slammed the door.

“You…” Prouvaire tilted his head. “That was you, wasn’t it? Last night.”

“'Course it was.” Montparnasse’s tone was bitter. He was trying to keep his voice from shaking.

Prouvaire nodded gravely. “I figured.”

He walked over to the window, staring out at the passing countryside.

“It’s snowing heavily.”

“Can’t get off the train without being noticed. They’ve got a list of the passengers.”

Prouvaire sighed. “Then what?”

Montparnasse looked away. “I don’t know.”

“They’re going to interview everybody in the carriage. That detective, the Belgian-”

“Enjol-thingy.”

“Him. He’s the one that solved the case in Weston Favel. The one with the cyanide and the pearls…”

“An ace detective. Wonderful.” Montparnasse scowled.

Prouvaire’s expression softened slightly, and he went to wrap his arms around Montparnasse’s waist. Montparnasse pulled him closer, holding onto him as tightly as he could, resting his forehead against the top of Prouvaire’s head.

“Don’t worry.” Montparnasse closed his eyes.

Prouvaire didn’t answer, burying his face in Montparnasse’s shoulder.

They stood there for a moment longer, and then Montparnasse raised his head, a serious expression on his face.

“We played cards with Éponine and Grantaire after dinner. I was there the entire time, and so were you. Azelma was with us. ‘Ponine and Azelma both went back to their compartment at quarter past eight, Claquesous retired at about eight thirty, and then you retired shortly afterward, at about quarter to nine..”

“What were we playing?”

“Tell them you can’t remember.”

“Anything else important?”

Montparnasse shook his head. “Nothing I can think of now. Only you’ve got to stay away from me, for a while.”

Prouvaire pouted. “Why?”

“Don’t want you linked to me too closely.”

Prouvaire sighed and pulled Montparnasse closer for a moment. “I ought to go. Shouldn’t stay here for long.”

Montparnasse nodded. “Alright.”

He brushed a strand of Prouvaire’s hair back from the poet’s forehead. “Don’t worry. I’ll take care of myself.”

“Promise?”

Montparnasse laughed. “I promise.”

He tugged Prouvaire’s closer and kissed him, gently, carefully.

And then they disentangled themselves from each other, and Prouvaire reached for the door.

“Jehan?”

Prouvaire paused.

“Yes?”

“I want you to know. I love you.”
