Anonymous asked: I know you ignored my last question. That's okay but still I would just love to be in bed with you. A joint, bottle of wine, and so much sex.
For those who didn’t have a chance to check it out, Sharing of the Domestic Burden is back up on youtube. And the original post now contains a link to the video again.
hommedelamachine asked: I loved what you wrote about Upstream Color, I just saw it last night, I didn't even think about the violence against women topic, which is really rare for me because I am always looking out for things like that. Great stuff!
You can force your story’s shape, but the color will always bloom upstream. What does that mean? What does it mean. What is Shane Carruth trying to tell me? What is he saying? These kind of questions typically run through my mind when seeing a film. While watching Carruth’s debut film, Primer, the questions were more like “What is going on?” Despite years of acclaim, I felt underwhelmed by a...

I had just heard that he was not doing well, but didn’t expect this type of news so quickly. Your dream was to have a film rated by him, mine was to have you become a critic as well known as he. Talk about feelings. (Talk about my mom still not directly saying...
Julie Dash: These Amazing Shadows →
Oh, hey! If you’re in Metro-Detroit, check this out! Julie Dash is showing a film about Film Preservation and Archiving. I actually don’t know much about it, but I’m assuming if Julie Dash is involved, it’s going to be worthwhile.

So many people with tumblrs helped out on this one, and I thank them all for their efforts. EDIT- So sorry, everyone! I have to take down the video momentarily. I’ll have...
My name is not Annie. It’s Quvenzhane.– 9-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, correcting the AP Reporter who said she was “just going to call her Annie.” (via shereader)

I’m a senior at NYU Tisch School of the Arts studying Film. I concentrate on writing and directing. And I’m working on my senior thesis film, titled White Rabbit. If you appreciate my taste in film and what I post,...

My Paternal Grandfather was not a nice man. I learned this as I grew older, the majority of the information coming to me as my grandfather passed away. When I was younger, he would always bring Church’s Fried Chicken to our house for dinner. I later discovered this was not out of the kindness of his heart, but the hatred of the smells my father’s cooking produced. When my parent’s first wed and...
