Let's End Sexual Violence. Together. →
emilysyrja: Today, a news story broke involving two high-profile basketball players at my university, who have been accused of sexual assault. Although their names (in addition to the name of the survivor) are being protected, there’s already been an uproar of rape apologism in the comments section of the article. My friend and fellow SACI E-Board member Elizabeth has written a thought-provoking...
I probably looked like the weirdest kid, purchasing baby books when I was eight or nine. Why was I doing this? I knew at a very young age that whatever I would do with my life, I wanted writing to be involved. To me, that included very intelligently picking names for characters. Do I still do it? I definitely look very thoroughly through books and internet resources for the ideal name, whatever...

It’s the same clip that I posted here, but I also briefly discuss my neuroses. Yay!
Tumblrs I love.
I’m feeling pretty good today. I figured it’d be a good time to share my love for tumblrs that are awesome.

I am taking screenwriting this semester. It is good for me, because I’ve only written on my terms doing things that I wanted to do. Now, all of a sudden, I’m being forced to come up with an idea on the spot, and write 12 pages a week relating to this idea. Our first assignment is about a 20-30 page script. Then we jump write into a longer script. I thought I had an idea for this...

A new documentary film by award-winning director Andrew James sets out on the East Side of Detroit to document what life is like for a struggling community in transition. The film’s main character of focus, James “Jack Rabbit” Jackson,… JDetroit doin’ what he does best, yet again! Promotin’ Detroit.

feministfilm: Via fbomb.
As some of you may or may not know, I’m a college student. A Junior at Michigan State, to be precise. Recently, I haven’t had much to say. I certainly will, considering the film courses I am taking and the fact that I am literally two shots away from completing the short I was working on in the summer. But, in the mean time, I’ll probably be thinking about boring college student...
