it's a film and i miss it

2

remember the white dress i wore all through that film? george came up to me the first day of filming, took one look at the dress and said: “you can’t wear a bra under that dress.”

“ok, i’ll bite,” i said. “why?” and he said: “because… there’s no underwear in space.”

he said it with such conviction. like he had been to space and looked around and he didn’t see any bras or panties anywhere.

he explained. “you go into space and you become weightless. then your body expands but your bra doesn’t, so you get strangled by your own underwear.”

i think that this would make for a fantastic obituary. i tell my younger friends that no matter how i go, i want it reported that i drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.

rest in peace, carrie fisher (october 21st, 1956 - december 27th, 2016)

LADY ASHFORD: Then let me be clear that I have understood. Your charge - your mulatto charge… LADY MANSFIELD: (fiercely protective) That is enough! DIDO sits staring at the floor. OLIVER cuts in, aggrieved. OLIVER: (to Lady Mansfield) Is it not true enough, your ladyship? LADY ASHFORD: whose unfortunate circumstances of birth, we chose to forgive - has decided she no longer wishes the match with my son - a gentleman and an officer. OLIVER stares across at DIDO. He speaks quietly. OLIVER: Why, Miss Lindsay? DIDO is silent. LADY ASHFORD: (poignant and pained) Do you feel I have any lesser need to ensure my child’s wellbeing and future than you?…(beat)…Does she still have a tongue?
― Excerpt taken from script

an idea for their representatives to consider: anthony mackie and sebastian stan doing all their press tours together, regardless of if they’re both in the film or not, in fact those would be the best press tours, where one tries to sell the others film without knowing a damn thing about it

@hippano has arrived!! Andrew was given a copy of her “Pride” final scene illustration after “Hamlet” last night and he absolutely loved it. I asked my friend if she could get a photo of him with it and, thanks to that thoughtful and generous man himself, she got more! Quite aside from the fact that he was truly delighted and very impressed with the picture, apparently he was chuffed to bits to find that it was actually for him to keep (as my friend said, “As if we were just gonna show him this amazing picture of the film he’s so incredibly proud of and then take it home again, leaving that adorable man empty-handed). 

So much did he love it, in fact, that he insisted on signing something for Hippano herself, wanting to know her name so he could sign it to her personally. So a “Hamlet” programme will be winging its way to Canada pretty soon. 

I’ve been told the back cover of the programme is missing though. So pleased was Andrew with his wee gift that he signed the back cover to my friend - again, personally, even though he was just quickly signing his name to most stuff and then moving along to the next person. 

Luckily, the kid she took to see “Hamlet” had the light set right and got great side view pics as Andrew looked into the lens that didn’t seem to be functioning so well. 

Yay! for Hippano, Yay! for folks who give gifts to a thoroughly exhausted actor who’s always so generous with his time, and Yay! for Andrew himself, for continuing to be such an amazing and beautiful person. 

Oh, and Gertrude fell into Ophelia’s grave but that’s a whole other story. 

Can we celebrate November 20th as the airdate anniversary of the greatest webseries episode ever (or at least ONE OF the greatest ever, even if you don’t love AoJE)? Personally, if I ever had to pick a “Webseries Appreciation Day”, it would be then. Not because there weren’t more significant dates prior and not because it’s the most dramatic and not because nothing since has had any significance. But because I legitimately believe that “Kidnapped” marked the new ways in which webseries could go. They could go outside. They could go “off plot”. They could realistic without sacrificing interest. They could introduce music in a way that was significant to the story and significant to the viewer. They could show off a specific landscape/cityscape (not simply through transmedia).

Basically, “Kidnapped” was and remains revolutionary in the field and I just want to remember it always.

Feel Good Movies

MISS PEREGRINE
by Jack Flamel
I saw the book in a bookstore and decided to buy it, because I like to collect old pictures as its author. I read it and I liked it.
Imagine my surprise when I heard that Daddy Tim going to do a film adaptation with the actress that most inspires me. I don’t know if it’s going to be a good movie, but is Tim Burton, and Eva, and a super entertaining book. So, of course, I’ll love this movie, I know.

The Ruby Agency - Masterpost :


In the early 50′s, the all-mighty “High Diamond Instances” corporation rules the country with an iron hand. But its authority is now weakened : a controversial oil exploitation project in Beach City Bay has provoked chaos, destruction and the creation of a rogue organisation. As one crucial witness went missing, the HDI charges a group of agents to investigate and to find -maybe- the key to end the rebellion.

Since this AU is growing bigger and bigger, I’ve decided to make a proper presentation of it. This will list all the related posts, concepts and illustrations, updated and arranged chronologically. Film noir style story with surprising events, welcome in the “Ruby Agency” !

  • Concepts : 
  • The Rubies : (x) (x)
  • Pearl : (x)
  • Jasper : coming soon
  • Illustrations :
  • The Roaming Eye : (x)
  • Storyline :
  • coming soon


Please take note that it’s a project I’m crafting on my free time, I’m doing it for fun so no pressure, I’ll post whenever I feel like it. Thanks for enjoying and supporting the stuff !

I always thought about theatre  –  I’m not sure about film, but certainly in the theatre  –  if I could press two buttons, first I’d have my lines going across the back of the auditorium, with electric lights   –  that would calm me down. The other one is all actors should have a t-shirt, whatever the costume, that just says on it, “Believe it or not, I’m doing my best.”
