What I’m really terrified of is leading an average, ordinary life with a regular job and an invariable routine, planned holidays, an average household, fixed responsibilities and not doing anything different to be remembered by.

absolutely destroy the idea that you have to be loved romantically and love romantically

destroy the idea that the end goal of life is to get into a romantic relationship/marriage

romantic love isn’t a requirement to live life and it never will be

“When I was doing my first movie, the only thing I knew is that I wanted a female editor. Because I just felt a female editor would be more nurturing. To the movie and to me. They wouldn’t try to be winning their way just to win their way, all right? They wouldn’t be trying to shove their agenda or win their battles with me. They would be nurturing me through this process.”

Quentin Tarantino, “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing”

this is a weird documentary. they use the default pronoun “he” to refer to editors, yet time and again there’s creepy shit in there about the way male directors, with their massive egos, have used these “invisible” non-celebrated women collaborators for their own self-aggrandizement

also tarantino sounds like a fucking sexist prick here

esp. given the fact that women in Hollywood are simply not allowed the opportunities as a director that a white man like him received

they’re second-place little helpmeets who are disallowed from the big time

and they’ve got to ~nurture~ you without getting the kind of credit you get as a white male director

It’s double gross because the drop of editing quality in Django was SO DAMN OBVIOUS. Sally Menke was who defined that delicious postmodern visual handwriting for him (and it’s shameful I only learned that late in art school, after years of considering myself “a film buff”), and her passing is a great loss to the craft.

(via thiswontbebigondignity)

I didn’t know Sally Menke’s name or how much of the work attributed to The Great Tarantino is hers before tonight

it’s sickening how women’s artistic genius is erased

and Tarantino got exactly what he wanted: someone to “nurture” him and make him look good as an artist

and never be spoken of

never take any of the limelight from him

because fucking nobody cares about women and their achievements

and white male directors have been and continue to be the little feted monstergod babies of Hollywood

Film editing is one of those positions that women take because they can’t get hired as directors. Kind of like how women in the comics industry end up as colorists because noone wants them as the headline artist.

How many great directors have partnered consistently with female editors? A lot of them. Scorsese is a great example. Thelma Schoonmaker has edited every single one of his films since 1980, starting with Raging Bull. She is instrumental to his success. But is she a household name like Scorsese is? Of course not.

Imagine a world where she directed her own films, and what those films could have been like. I’m not saying all film editors wish they were directors or anything. But it’s no coincidence that the position most open to female moviemakers is the most unsung, and that’s part of why there are so few female directors today.

James Lopez, a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman), is currently trying to raise money for his traditionally animated project Hullabaloo. Hullabaloo is a steampunk short film which Lopez is hoping will help save the cause of 2D animation, and possibly lead to a TV series or film. So, if you’re interested in badass steampunk ladies or traditional animation, may I recommend you give a dollar or two. Hullabaloo's IndieGogo page is over here, visit to donate and learn more! And I’ll conclude with the plot: 

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

Together, Veronica and Jules learn that Jonathan Daring has been kidnapped by a mysterious group of influential persons, who seek to use his latest invention for nefarious purposes. These villains are wealthy and influential and neither Veronica nor Jules can stop them openly. But determined to save her father and holding true to the family creed that technology should be used for the good of all, not the greed of some, Veronica assumes the secret identity of “Hullabaloo”, a goggled crusader who uses wits and science to combat evil and oppose the nefarious conspiracy that has taken her father.

How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?

Oh man.

I loved GotG, but this is fantastic and true.

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

Fiction is often a mirror to the society from which it comes.

Right now, it’s dystopian stuff everywhere.

Wonder why that is. Huh. Hm. Hmmm.
