The Last Boy Scout, 1991
The Long Kiss Goodnight, 1996

Watching these two movies on their release day, I couldn’t help feeling there was a dichotomy between their directors‘ vision and writer Shane Black’s. Tony Scott and Renny Harlin seemed to be in full Silver Pictures slick action movie blockbuster mode, and Black had written character-oriented noir private eye and action thrillers.

I love these two movies as they are, but after seeing Black’s directing skills, I wonder what could have been if he’d directed them himself (not that hey would have fared any better at the box office, I’m afraid). The themes running through Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Nice Guys are all already there, waiting for the director to truly seize them.

Oh well, maybe Black wasn’t quite ready to direct at the time, and it took him The Long Kiss Goodnight’s box office failure to get to the point where he could make Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Nice Guys.

anonymous asked:

I want to know, might your username be german? Because it contains "das" (German "the" for things of neutral gender) "sein" (be) and hundin (Actually spelled Hündin, a female Dog) Cause that's way to specific to be coincedence.

You are absolutely correct, anon!!! So I have an ongoing joke with one of my best friends @iha where he called me a b*tch and I will respond “I am not A b*tch, I am THE b*tch” so when I was making my tumblr I couldn’t think of a username and since I was chatting with him at the time, I decided to make that my URL. But because I’m a nerd who was at the time (and still is) obsessed with Princess Tutu, I decided to be /clever/ and use google translate to write “I’m the b*tch” in German.

So A++++ to you anon for your observation!!! Also, I apologize profusely for what I’m pretty sure is completely butchered German, lol.

Relax guys, they can’t get away with this shit, otherwise, bye Pewds, Mark, Jack, Ken, Cry, H2O Delirious, Vanoss, Dan (just Dan not Phil), Shane, Tyler Oakley, Joey, basically every good Youtuber. There will be a huge uproar, so don’t worry… 

Reblog if you disagree with the new Youtube guidelines, just so I can prove this.

Oh, also every Panic! video would be taken away, I guess… if the rules also apply to music videos… PORNO MIME!!!

I could build a future between your thighs
then look into your eyes trying to find
my own private history channel
with a life long documentary
on whether or not this was meant to be
and I don’t want to turn any of this into poetry
you’re so beautiful
flowers turn their heads to smell you.”

and when I’m all alone
I’m riffling through the pockets
in the back of my mind
trying to find spare excuses
so I can call you on the phone

and it’s strange
the way I need a reason
just to call you up and say
that I thought about you today.

Forbidden Brides Of The Faceless Slaves In The Secret House Of The Night Of Dread Desire HC by Shane Oakley

Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire HC
Neil Gaiman (W), Shane Oakley (A/C/Cover), and Nick Filardi ©
On sale Jan 25
FC, 48 pages
HC, 7" x 10"
A celebrated send-up of gothic literature, beautifully adapted into a dark, brooding, and oddly comical graphic novel. Somewhere in the night, a raven caws, an author’s pen scratches, and thunder claps. The author wants to write nonfiction: stories about frail women in white nightgowns, mysterious bumps in the night, and the undead rising to collect old debts. But he keeps getting interrupted by the everyday annoyances of talking ravens, duels to the death, and his sinister butler.
• Shane Oakley beautifully illustrates New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman’s satirical tale.
“It’s about what fantasy is, and why we write it, and what it would mean to write fantasy if you lived in a Gothic universe.” – Neil Gaiman
