Those Papers Cut

I'm a professional blogger elsewhere and a completely unprofessional blogger here.

I feel the need to provide a warning to all who enter here: This is a fangirl blog. It can be overwhelming sometimes if you are not a person of the fannish variety. Follow at your own risk. Sometimes I post a lot, sometimes I rant a lot, etc.  Straight-up pop culture obsession abounds.

“When you slip on a banana peel, people laugh at you; but when you tell people you slipped on a banana peel, it’s your laugh,” -Nora Ephron

Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?

image

not gonna lie that still looks intimately real

I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.

Fucking witchcraft, man.

Jon Stewart asked viewers to reinvent CNN, and the results are hilarious

After announcing a Kickstarter campaign to buy CNN, host Jon Stewart has turned his attention to programming. The idea stemmed from his interview with Fareed Zakaria last week: “Your program, half an hour … that’s two hours of programming a week,” Zakaria said. “CNN has 24 hours times seven, 168 hours.”

So what should go in the remaining 166 hours of airtime every week? Stewart announced the hashtags #NewCNNShows, #NewCNNSlogans and #NewCNNTech to let viewers pitch their own ideas for “the most trusted name in news.” And viewers obliged.

Joss,

I am so excited I can hardly speak.

The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn’t know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for LOKI on every page, jumping back and forth, reading words in no particular order, utterances imprinting themselves like flash-cuts of newspaper headlines in my mind: “real menace”; “field of obeisance”; “discontented, nothing is enough”; “his smile is nothing but a glimpse of his skull”; “Puny god” …

… Thank you for writing me my Hans Gruber. But a Hans Gruber with super-magic powers. As played by James Mason … It’s high operatic villainy alongside detached throwaway tongue-in-cheek; plus the “real menace” and his closely guarded suitcase of pain. It’s grand and epic and majestic and poetic and lyrical and wicked and rich and badass and might possibly be the most gloriously fun part I’ve ever stared down the barrel of playing. It is just so juicy.

I love how throughout you continue to put Loki on some kind of pedestal of regal magnificence and then consistently tear him down. He gets battered, punched, blasted, side-swiped, roared at, sent tumbling on his back, and every time he gets back up smiling, wickedly, never for a second losing his eloquence, style, wit, self-aggrandisement or grandeur, and you never send him up or deny him his real intelligence…. That he loves to make an entrance; that he has a taste for the grand gesture, the big speech, the spectacle. I might be biased, but I do feel as though you have written me the coolest part.

… But really I’m just sending you a transatlantic shout-out and fist-bump, things that traditionally British actors probably don’t do. It’s epic.

Tom

ACTUAL MESSAGE OF (500) DAYS OF SUMMER THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY REALIZES

JGL has just about talked himself hoarse explaining this.

The relationship model in the film isn’t him, it’s Gubler’s character, who when asked about his dream girl, says a few things he might wish for, but then goes on to say that his actual girlfriend is better than his dream girl, because she’s a real person.
