Can I ask you where you get your artwork prints printed? I'm new to this! Thanks
I go to local print places. Most places will let you print something as a test just to see the quality. If not you can always put in a buck or 2 and print something on their cheapest paper just to see the ink quality/color.
The best places i’ve gotten prints from are usually mildly sketchy looking shopping plazas. You know, the ones that have a generic name like “color copies” that print banners and community signs. They often care more about their printers/products and want you to become a repeat customer.
Depending on the place they also might let you use your own paper at a discount, as long as it’s a standard size that won’t jam their equipment. I recommend google mapping copy places around you or just keeping an eye out for printer places on the road. You’ll probably find a good one. I don’t like doing online printing b/c I’d have to pay shipping and possibly end up with 50 too dark or off green prints.
I bring my laptop and a flash drive with me for printing so I can edit the color/levels after the first print, then print the rest with the edited version to insure they come out close to how they look on screen. You might have to do some adjusting, there’s only so much the printers can do, or maybe I’m just really picky about the way the colors print hahhhh. You could make a test sheet with all your prints crammed together so you can get an idea of how weird the colors will turn out without having to make a bunch of copies.
Depending on where you live staples or officedepo might make reasonable prints. But the quality and the lenience with paper used really depend on the individual store. So maybe you’ll luck out there. If anything the printing area of officedepo often has nice rotary and guillotine paper cutters you can use for free to trim things. >:D At least mine did.
So I watched the OG Ghostbusters for the first time in a while
and Im????? actually crying???
I mean what is up with these gd fuckboys and their defense of this film as a Paragon of True Cinema its such a mediocre cheeseball movie
Like…….does anyone actually remember the plot??? Because I do. Now. Kind of. It’s already leaving me
DEMONIC POSSESSION AND AN APOCALYPSE PLOT?? IN A MOVIE CALLED “GHOSTBUSTERS”?
ZUUL?? GOZER THE GOZERIAN??
ancient sumeria now theres some history for ya
SIGOURNEY WEAVER COVERED IN GLITTER AND AN OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS?? A GLITTERY OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS?? I mean werk girl but the campy-ness levels are insane
The special effects are incredible for their time but also sometimes…so 80s??? it kills me honestly when she opened her fridge and there was like a little pink world inside that was supposed to be trippy omggg
Bill Murray being front and center, doin that 1980s Bill Murray thing™
(The 1980s Bill Murray thing I think can be summarized by that one post: “ **holds a baby carrot like a cigarette* I’m just….. over it, you know? ”)
Can I just
Bill Murray’s character is THE ACTUAL WORST
he spends the entirety of his VERY FIRST SCENE trying to fuck his student
and its just creepy as fuck
but its ESPECIALLY frightening when hes tryna get Sigourney Weaver like
“Haha you say you have a ‘ghost’ in your ‘apartment’? I believe you sweetcheeks lets go take a look right now ok we can go RIGHT NOW…jk lets drop this ruse we both know why you asked me over you dont have to try so hard to get my attention of course I’ll go out with you”
“Youre possessed by an ancient demon!!!…but that ancient demon is horny and youre not around to protest so why not”
(Ok well maybe I can see how fuckboys wouldnt want THAT legacy of playful misogyny to be overshadowed by Females)
AND HES BASICALLY THE MAIN CHARACTER LIKE THE OTHER GUYS ARE BARELY FLESHED OUT AS CHARACTERS ITS THE GODDAMN PETER VENKMAN SHOW
I reaaaally dont miss the “I see you, I wanna bang you, and I wont take no for an answer, arent I an endearing man-boy of a character” thing alot of 80s and 90s movies were just so blatant about
The only truly good thing in that movie is Egon/Annie
May they one day realize theyre too good for this place and flee to have beautiful sassy nearsighted babies
TL;DR THE OG GHOSTBUSTERS IS AN ACTUAL HOT MESS THAT IS SEMI FUNNY AND V CORNY AND LIKE OBVIOUSLY A POP CULTURE ICON
Halloween is looming, folks. Sure, the big day may technically be October 31st, but for us creatures of the night Halloween is a bit more fluid. For me, the fun begins in September, which marks day one of a two month love affair with all things spooky that, by its end on November 1st, leaves me burned out on horror films for a good month or so… and then it’s time to fire up some killer Santa Claus movies! There’s an art form - or perhaps it’s more of a science - to getting the most out of Halloween, and it involves choosing your movies wisely. One doesn’t lead in with a heavy hitter like Trick r Treat or Halloween. You dip your toes in first with something to set the mood and then build up to the main event movies over time. Earlier today I watched one of the ultimate Halloween mood set films: Lady In White (1988).
If you’ve never heard of this film I couldn’t blame you. Lady In White has languished in obscurity since the day it flopped at the box office. On the other hand, it was something of a critical success - and that makes sense because it’s a hell of a movie. Lady In White is the story of Frankie Scarlatti, who on Halloween Night 1962 finds himself trapped in a small coat room in his school thanks to a mean-spirited prank. There he sees something unbelievable: the spectral silhouette of a ghostly girl about his age being murdered and then lifelessly carried away by an invisible force. As if this isn’t traumatic enough, the whole thing appears to be some sort of warning from beyond the grave. Seconds later a madman bursts into the room and attempts to kill Frankie, who survives thanks to a little help from the young ghoul he’d spotted earlier. From there, Frankie attempts to unravel the mysteries of just who both his would-be killer and the phantom girl were. The set up is a little elaborate on paper, sure, but it plays perfectly within the film itself, setting the stage for a hybrid ghost/whodunit film with MORE than its fair share of spookiness.
“Hybrid” is definitely the right term for Lady In White. It isn’t your typical horror movie. It’s definitely scary, don’t get me wrong: the film has a sort of quiet unease that builds steadily as it progresses, punctuated by some majorly intense moments featuring the titular “lady” to create a pretty eerie experience. But there’s more to it than just straight up horror, and that’s what I love most about it. It’s the story of a kid, and I suspect it was meant to be a story for kids, even though it deals with some very heavy stuff in places. In between the scares it has a sort of childlike naivete, with lots of humor and charm to lighten things up and keep the movie’s inner darkness at bay. It’s almost like a marriage between one of the more family friendly Spielberg films and an old school ghost movie that pulls no punches. It’s a strange blend, I won’t deny it, but it works, creating a horror movie that’s also exciting, funny, and full of heart. At times it goes a bit astray, and there’s a particularly tragic subplot the movie could’ve done without, but on the whole Lady In White is just fantastic.
If you’re not quite feeling the spirit of Halloween in your bones yet, find Lady In White and give it a go. Its unique atmosphere and VERY ‘80s digital effects feel so appropriate for the season, and the first half of the film is set on one of the most beautiful, fully-realized cinematic Halloweens I’ve ever seen. It’s got precisely the right vibe to start the season off. I can already tell it’s gonna become a Halloween tradition for me.
