Robert Pattinson’s interview with Reuters at Cannes 2017

Transcript:

Narrator: Robert Pattinson, a man used to being pursued by fans and paparazzi, managed to shoot an entire film on the streets of New York without being recognized. Pattinson was speaking to Reuters ahead of the movie Good Times while premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

Rob :

“So I was really practicing ways to kind of disappear, because it just needs one person, and like literally on the shoot it wasn’t just one person the entire time, which is just…it’s crazy. I’ve never been on a shoot where not a single still, there’s not a single cell phone picture of the entire shoot.”


Narrator: Good Time was filmed guerilla style among real people on the streets. Pattinson who plays a man trying to get his younger brother out of jail after a botched bank heist, said anonymity was crucial, as the crew were using real locations and couldn’t cordon off the public. Co-directors brothers Josh and Benny Safdie said Pattinson had approached them after seeing their previous film Heaven Knows What. Pattinson was full of praise for the brothers’ work.



Rob: 

“But yeah they did like pretty wild stuff in the movie. We were like shooting in an emergency room in a hospital with no permission and stuff. We’re just going, just walking in and, shooting it with a Steadicam and it’s amazing what you can get away with… just that, like without telling anyone, without asking permission. You just go in and do it and then you’ve got it. And that’s fine.”



Narrator: Critics at Cannes said Good Time could cement Pattinson’s position as a grade-A actor as well as an A-list star

I often say that my favorite thing to do in the whole world is sit around with someone showing each other songs that we love. I was one upped tonight when I was at a dive bar tonight with my friends mom trying to navigate a cranky old jukebox. She ended up dancing to Janis Joplin in the green lighting. And I accidentally played “Streets of Philadelphia” by Bruce Springsteen three times because the machine was broken and “Born to Run” wouldn’t.

Gregoire Tillery gave up his job in corporate America and spent all his money on buying a food truck (which broke down on him immediately).

Luckily, due to perseverance, a friend with a lot of followers and some incredibly delicious chicken and shrimp recipes, he has made it onto the prestigious Canal Street. Playing old school tunes and advertising demos by local talent, We Dat’s Chicken and Shrimp is a hub for the community, where Gregoire has given free food to kids in the neighbourhood.

Ok but like what if Yuuri's a street performer and plays violin across from the rink Viktor practices at. Everyday when Viktor's going in he gives Yuuri money and watches him for awhile before he gets yelled at to go in. Well what if like competitions were coming up and Viktor doesn't have any music yet, so he runs across the street to Yuuri and asks him to help compose his music.

(Jimin’s crush comes over to his house to help him out after he suffers an injury that leaves him with limited use of both hands.)

Warnings: 6000+ words of smut, Jimin POV, I’ll let you guess what kind of smut takes place


“I can’t believe you managed to injure both of your hands on the same day.” Hoseok’s girlfriend, Sophie, stifled a laugh while she said it. “I can’t tell if you are dumb or just unlucky.”

 Jimin sighed.  He had been stupid and drunk when he and Jungkook went out into the street to play with fireworks.  One went off too close to his hand, burning his right palm requiring a trip to the emergency room where his injury was cleaned and bandaged.  The doctor gave him a lecture about drunk people and explosives and how fortunate he was not to have blasted off his fingers.            

While exiting the hospital, Jimin immediately tripped over the curb and landed with his full weight onto his left hand resulting in a small fracture and return trip to the emergency room to get a splint to immobilize his other hand.   Now, every time Jimin saw someone, he had to suffer the embarrassment of explaining what happened. People had a hard time not laughing when they heard how he managed to get hurt twice in one day.

 “Does it hurt much?” you asked him.

“Not really. As long as I don’t bump into anything or use my fingers too much, it’s okay.” At least you seemed to be genuinely concerned about his well-being. That’s one of the reasons Jimin liked you, you always seemed caring and sincere.  The other main reason he liked you was because he thought you were incredibly hot.  There were plenty of nights Jimin stayed up fantasizing about what it would feel like to be with you.  He wanted to ask you out, but had been waiting until there was some indication that you were even the slightest bit interested in him.  He was starting to think that maybe he had a chance with you, but he felt neutered with his injuries, unable to do things like casually touch you and see how you would respond to his advances.  Jimin resolved to make a move as soon as he had full use of his hands again.

Some have called “This Land Is Your Land” an alternative national anthem. Others say it’s a Marxist response to “God Bless America.” It was written and first sung by Woody Guthrie. Over time, it’s been sung by everyone from Lady Gaga to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Folklorist Nick Spitzer has the story of an American classic.

Woodrow Wilson Guthrie was born in 1912 in Okemah, Okla. He recorded “This Land Is Your Land” during a marathon April 1944 session in New York for Moses Asch, who founded Folkways Records. Guthrie was on shore leave from the Merchant Marines, one of his many occupations during the Depression and war years.

Growing up in small-town Oklahoma, Guthrie heard church hymns, outlaw ballads, blues, fiddle tunes and popular music. The Guthries had been fairly prosperous — Woody’s father was a small-time politician and businessman — but the family unraveled in the topsy-turvy oil economy of the ‘20s and '30s. The Guthrie family relocated to Pampa, Tex., after Woody’s mother was committed to a mental institution for a mysterious nervous condition. That’s when Woody took to the road.

As a boy, he’d already proven himself to be a gifted street entertainer — dancing, playing guitar and harmonica, making up songs as he went. Words and music became a growing passion for him.

The Losers: “OH NO! Invader Zim memes! Now’re we’re gonna have children wearing Gir sweaters, and this’ll somehow ruin my life, because I never had one in the first place!”

Me: *Rolling down the street on a skateboard, playing the Invader Zim theme on a kazoo… badly*

So this is an original song I wrote, which tbh was pretty inspired by the Love Square™. I can imagine all sides of the Adrien and Marinette singing this too each other honestly. Sorry if I’m not the best singer !

Baby Mine

Lay with me
Underneath the shade of this tree
And just imagine whatd it be like
To give it all up on a free ride

Lets go out today
Skip the sidewalks in the streets we play
Close our eyes and count to fifty
hold my hand when ya start to miss me

Oh baby mine
Look what you do to me
We’re a messy pair, a little more than weird
And yet I wont stand it if you arent here
Oh baby mine
How could I resist?
When you stare at me,
like Im all there is
Baby Mine x2

Stay the night
We’ll be doing more than pillow fights
Dont make a sound, or we’ll get caught
My Pops’ll decide if thats fun or not

Dont worry babe
Hold onto me we’ll simply sway
Youve got two left feet, and Ive got two more
But that wont stop us on that dance floor

Chorus

And as I see you there
Admit it, we’re quite the pair
Somehow it all works out
And nothing would ever compare

to my baby mine
Look what you do to me
Ill be by your side
When you need me there
If you’ll have me
Baby mine
How could I resist?
I’ll give it all to you, if you tell me this
Baby mine

bowiebrilliance: oh my god the story behind this photo is so sweet, the boy is Seth Scholes and he was 11 years old at the time. Scholes wanted to see Bowie live on tour and so he started busking on the streets playing saxophone to pay for a ticket, but due to the media it soon it caught David’s attention and he sent Scholes free tickets and backstage passes to jam with him and his sax player before his show…

Auntie Bells

by reddit user Pippinacious

Auntie Bells wasn’t really my auntie, or anyone else’s for that matter. I’m not sure she even had any real family at all. It was just what everyone called her. She’d been a fixture in the neighborhood since long before I was born and there wasn’t a single person who didn’t at least know of her.

She was something of a living legend; a crazy cat lady type without the cats. It wasn’t unusual to look out your window in the dead of night and see Auntie Bells shuffling down the street, big walking stick clutched in one hand, her tameless hair shining white in the moonlight. And if you didn’t see her, you’d hear her. Auntie Bells took her name from the bracelets she wore on both wrists, strands of twine run through a countless number of tiny bells that tinkled with her every movement.

(170328) @subkultureent: dear shawols,

we just wanted to take the time to say thank you for making shinee world v in usa 2017 such a successful tour all around. although we brought shinee to the u.s. twice last year for the fanmeets, this was the first time ever that the group was able to perform on stage for its u.s. shawols as part of a full solo concert.

for some fans, shinee is the first group that introduced them to k-pop, and many more have walked this 9-year long journey with the group since the beginning. we know that a good number of u.s. shawols waited years to finally see the members perform live in concert, so seeing your enthusiasm, smiles, and tears of joy on the day of the shows was such a great gift to us as the company hosting this tour.

we want to thank the crowds in dallas and la for your unmatched passion and energy throughout the entire show. it was a full house at 6,000+ in each city, our biggest crowd yet, and the u.s. shawols did an amazing job at showing shinee all the love they can possibly show. the members were amazed by the overwhelming response.

thank you also to the five shining members of shinee, s.m. entertainment, dream maker entertainment, #shineeworldinusa crew and staff, venue / security staff, and our volunteers / street team. everyone played a huge role in making this tour one for the books.

thank you all again, and we hope to see you at our next tour in may! <3

sincerely,
the subk team
