made for tv horror

anonymous asked:

read your american gods post and wanted to know if you read the book? I read the book and I can't tell if I like the show bc its the book on screen or what

I did, and I was…ambivalent about it. (Love some of the concepts! Not wild about the execution.) I was really hoping that the show would breathe some more…moreness into the parts that left me cold in the text. And by and large, they have, very much so! I like Ricky Whitte’s Shadow 100x more than I liked him in the books, and Fuller has managed to do a very good job integrating the main plot with the ‘coming to America’ stories. (They feel like a more organic whole, rather than a string of loosely associated short stories, which I think Gaiman actually wanted to write.)

But it’s really not a question of adaptation issues…With something as obviously well-crafted as this show, I’d expect to feel—something. It’s not exactly a high bar; I’ve felt genuine human emotion at episodes of American Horror Story and made-for-tv movies and the entire oeuvre of Byran Fuller’s previous work. Maybe it’s just taking the show a while to find its emotional core and I’ll eat my words in the next episode, but I really do want to feel something.

Ahoi there, my name is Pia and I live in Berlin (Germany). I’d like to get to know people and cultures all other world and I think exchanging letters might be fun?
I like reading (my favourite book is “I am the messenger” by Markus Zusak), drawing and painting (my appartement is full of paintings I made myself), watching TV series like The Walking Dead, Hannibal, American Horror Story, New Girl and Bob’s Burgers (currently I also watch wrestling shows?)! I’m also interested in gardening, traveling, cooking and learning Italian by chance!
However, I think it’ll be okay if you’re not interested in any of these things, I’m sure we could find a lot of things to talk about!!

Preferences: Please only 18+, other than that it doesn’t matter! (I’d like to exchange letters, so please only snail mail pals!)

But let’s talk about Jamie Brewer.

She’s awesome.

Jamie Brewer made her television debut on American Horror Story. Prior to her transition to acting on camera she was a theatrical actress. She has not left the stage, however, and still continues her training through theater and through improvisation at ‘The Groundlings Theatre and School’ .

Being an individual with Down Syndrome Jamie has made it a point to be active in the Down Syndrome community. Jamie was the youngest to ever be elected President of the ARC of Fort Bend Chapter. From there, she was appointed to the State of Texas ARC Board, then elected to the Executive Board as Treasurer. Jamie was then asked to serve on the ARC Governmental Affairs Committee for the State of Texas. She spoke with Senators at the Texas State Capitol to persuade them to pass the law for Texas to abolish using the “R” word from state legislation, and regarding the needs of people with disabilities in Texas. Texas now uses “Intellectual Developmental Disability” in their legislation. 1

Brewer is involved with a several non-profit organizations, including DSALA, DSiAM, BTAP, National Down Syndrome Congress, American Association of People with Disabilities of the United States, and Civitan International.
