Green Day performances in 1990-1991: mainly Billie dancing or making honking noises into the microphone, mike probably isn’t wearing a shirt, Billie switched from honking noises to screeching, the crowd is yelling at them to play a goddamn song already but Billie won’t stop mumbling gibberish into the mic, lots of pacing, grainy quality and very dark, tre probably kisses Billie a few times, mike spends so much time head banging with hair in his face you forget he has eyes under that fucking mop
Dorothy Arzner was born in San Fransisco but would spent her childhood in Los Angeles. There her father would run a restaurant popular with actors and filmmakers from Hollywood. Although Arzner originally had dreams of being a doctor, by the end of the first world war she would switch her goals to filmmaking. By 1919 she would get her first job in Hollywood as a stenographer at Famous Players but would quickly move up the ranks; being promoted to screenwriter and then editor. She quickly become skilled at editing and director James Cruz would use her for many of his films. After working on almost 50 films, Arzner would threaten to move studios if she wasn’t given a chance to direct. By 1927, her studio allowed her to direct her first film, Fashions for Women. The film would financially do well and after this, she held a reputation within hollywood as a talented filmmaker. During the filming of the Clara Bow talkie The Wild Party, Arzner would be credited with inventing the boom mike by attaching a microphone to a fishing rod. But she would not patent the design and Edmund H. Hansen would get the credit with inventing a similar deceive a year later. With this film, she would also become the first woman to direct a sound film. Many of her films would do very well commercially including The Wild Party. She would leave Paramount (Famous player was bought out by Paramount) after The Wild Party and make a number of films independently for different studios. Some of these films would be The Bride Wore Red (1937), Christopher Strong (1933), and Dance Girl Dance (1940). By 1943, Arzner would grow disillusioned with Hollywood and leave the studio system for good. She would direct a number of short films for the war effort during WWII, direct Pepsi commercials, and teach filmmaking at UCLA and the Pasadena Playhouse.
Due to her own personal sexuality and relationships (Arzner has been rumored to have affairs with numerous actresses such as Alla Nazimova and Billie Burke and held a lifetime relationship with choreographer Marion Morgan) her films often held
lesbian undertones and themes of female empowerment. She was one of the few female directors of 1930s that was able to work successfully within the studio system and her films have had a lasting impact on the art of film.
recently moved to the center LA to pursue my music career and my dancing
career. I’ve been dreaming about this day since I was 14 and now that i’m 20

Freshlee Records, I was about to be their first girl rapper/ R&B artist. I
already was familiar with everyone in the label since I had been a fan since
the very beginning, but to now be known as one of them, that was a true dream
Today I get
to work on my music in the studio and I was pretty excited. My Freshlee manager
Mike, was gonna help me out today just to show me the ropes, even though i’ve been
working in a music studio since I was 16. I quickly put on my black leggings, a
plain white tee, a UCLA sweatshirt and white adidas, then quickly put my hair
up in a messy bun and put on a little makeup. I grab my purse and my car keys and head down
to the studio.
I get to the
studio about 20 minutes later, due to the traffic. I walk into the studio and I
see the one and only Nate ‘Skate’ Maloley with his crew. My heart started to
beat fast. Nate was every girls dream. He was good looking, had a heart and was
very passionate, although according to some fans ‘hes a man whore’. I would
never imagine it but whatever. I put my purse on the couch and I walk over to
my manager Mike, who was just messing with the soundboard while Nate was in the

smile. my eyes get a side glance of Nate and he is lookin at mike, then looking
at me. I get a shy smile. Nate walks to the microphone and speaks.

booth. I walk out and mike grabs my hand and walks me over to Nate.
