"There are no two words in the English language more harmful than ‘good job’." And with that, J.K. Simmons and Damien Chazelle’s critically acclaimed Whiplash grabs a hold of the audience and never lets go. The film, starring The Spectacular Now's unbelievably talented Miles Teller, revolves around a young musician who joins a jazz band with a drill sergeant for a conductor. The film was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics and opens on limited release in the US on October 10, 2014.
This halloween please say no to these costumes please just say no they are fucking insulting and Dia de los Muertos is NOT HALLOWEEN I REPEAT NOT HALLOWEEN THIS IS NOT A COSTUME PLEASE STOP TREATING IT LIKE ONE
TO ALL THE PEOPLE GETTING FUCKED OFF AT MY POST. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I MADE IT. FOR YOUR PINCHE GUERO PENDEJX ASSES. “WE DO IT OUT OF RESPECT,” MY ASS.
No mames….uy no. Just no these costumes just scream mass production and HORRIBLE DESIGN, and just plain ignorance.
Get educated guys, SERIOUSLY. It’s one thing to try to emulate these things ON THE APPROPRIATE HOLIDAY through the appropriate means of TRADITIONAL DRESS but to make a profit through mass production only erodes the meaning of this NON HALLOWEEN HOLIDAY.
‘FUN HOME’ CREATOR ALISON BECHDEL RECEIVES MACARTHUR GENIUS GRANT
By Chris Sims
Cartoonist Alison Bechdel is virtually a household name at this point. Her comics, including Fun Home and Dykes To Watch Out For, are deservedly critically acclaimed, and ‘The Bechdel Test’ has become an increasingly relevant shorthand for analysis of gender diversity in fiction. In other words, she’s a genius, and today, that became official.
Bechdel is one of the latest recipients of The MacArthur Foundation‘s “Genius Grant,” which honors “talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction,” and comes with an award of $625,000 that can be spent any way the recipient sees fit.
