I was never interested in an elegant love, full of golden rings and sapphires that match my eyes. Give me a love that will not tarnish, that will not turn my finger green. Be there to kiss me in the morning and that is all I need.
Hello, you lovely and wonderful people! I recently hit 5K followers and honestly it’s hard to even imagine? I’m so happy you’re all here and that you find my yelling entertaining enough to stick around. It’s been a long time (2.5K?) since I did a Follow Forever, so I’d like to take some time to call out the wonderful people who make this site what it is!
Warning: there are a lot! Haha why are you all so ridiculously amazingl?
Hi, all! I know I’m late, but blame that on a long day of travel lol anyways, why stop at just one day? Appreciation for fic writers all the time!
Ah, I have so much to say. At the bottom I have some call-outs but first, mentions of my favorite writers. All of you are tremendously talented, incredibly gifted and just all-around wonderful for sharing your gifts with the world. Thank you to all!
Andrei Tarkovsky “And is Chaplin—comedy? No: he is Chaplin, pure and simple; a unique phenomenon, never to be repeated. He is unadulterated hyperbole; but above all he stuns us at every moment of his screen existence with the truth of his hero’s behavior. In the most absurd situation Chaplin is completely natural; and that is why he is funny.”
Buster Keaton “At his best, and Chaplin remained at his best for a long time, he was the greatest comedian that ever lived.”
François Truffaut “My religion is cinema. I believe in Charlie Chaplin…”
Jean-Luc Godard “He is beyond praise because he is the greatest of all. What else can one say? The only filmmaker, anyway, to whom one can apply without misunderstanding that very misleading adjective, ‘humane’… Today one says Chaplin as one says Da Vinci—or rather Charlie, like Leonardo.”
Jean Renoir “The master of masters, the filmmaker of filmmakers, for me is still Charlie Chaplin. He has done everything in his films—script, direction, setting, production, performance and even the music… His films are not only examples of perfect unity, but all his work is one. One may say indeed of Chaplin that he has made only one film and that every facet of that film is a different enactment of the same profession of faith.”
Jiri Menzel “All Chaplin’s early films assured me that the comedy can say in a grotesque way much more about people’s characters than serious films, which after a certain time fade away and became ridiculous. Good comedy is immortal.”
Luis Buñuel “When I was young, the idea of an orgy was tremendously exciting. Charlie Chaplin once organized one in Hollywood for me and two Spanish friends, but when the three ravishing young women arrived from Pasadena, they immediately got into a tremendous argument over which one was going to get Chaplin, and in the end all three left in a huff.”
Masaki Kobayashi “Last year I went to the Cannes Film Festival and met Charles Chaplin. They showed his works. I was deeply impressed by his greatness. His films, his methods and content, are modern and so contemporary; he is a great genius.”
Ousmane Sembène “Did other filmmakers teach you anything? There was one, an old man whom I had the fortune to meet very old, Charlie Chaplin; he told me that everyone could do this job, but that it is very demanding… He was the only guy who you couldn’t see in bars, nightclubs, or at receptions. He told me one had to stay at home and work…”
Pier Paolo Pasolini “You can always feel underneath my love for Dreyer, Mizoguchi and Chaplin… I feel this mythic epicness in both Dreyer and Mizoguchi and Chaplin: all three see things from a point of view which is absolute, essential and in a certain way holy, reverential.”
Satyajit Ray “If there is any name which can be said to symbolize cinema—it is Charlie Chaplin… I am sure Chaplin’s name will survive even if the cinema ceases to exist as a medium of artistic expression. Chaplin is truly immortal.”
Stanley Kubrick “If something is really happening on the screen, it isn’t crucial how it’s shot. Chaplin had such a simple cinematic style that it was almost like I Love Lucy, but you were always hypnotized by what was going on, unaware of the essentially non-cinematic style. He frequently used cheap sets, routine lighting and so forth, but he made great films. His films will probably last longer than anyone else’s.”
Vittorio De Sica "Truly good films—like Chaplin’s—should stimulate as well as soothe, should appeal to the mind as well as to the senses, should kindle thought as well as the emotions.”
hello lovely, do you happen to know any amazing got7 writers? i've already read all of your got7 works and am quite bored now ahaha, thanks in advance ~
Hi, lovely anon! I do have some favorite GOT7 writers.
- Fal, at @the-porcelain-doll-xo . Wonderful plot lines, edge of your seat tension, realistic characters. I can’t hype Fal enough haha. She’s also coming out with a new fic Monday (5/2) called The Council, OT7, and it’s going to be fantastic.
- Sica, or @yves-saintlaurtuan . I recommend Sica basically every time I can. Her series are so well written, realistic and heart-rendering. I adore them all, read her Masterlist.
- Erika, @yg-got7scenarios - ignore the bio that says shitty writings, they’re GOLD. Haha
Yoona: “And Jessica, if you look at her, her first impression is really cold. So I couldn’t even start talking to her. But as I got to know them, Sica unnie likes to joke around a lot, they call her Ice Princess but she’s nothing like that”
