Life Outside of Movies

I’ve been looking at trailers on IMDB, and I can’t help but think, how hard is it to have people of color or at least WOMEN—who’s purpose are not to be the object of a man’s desire—in movies?

we-were-goodfellas asked: Top five directors?

Ok I’ve thought about this for days and I cannot think of five favorites because some directors I really like have really big flaws that I can’t look past (Martin Scorsese and the misogyny in his movies [not saying he himself is a misogynist but his characters are and that’s not helping his case])

So, um I have on my favorites:
1) Wes Anderson
2) Stanley Kubrick
3) Alfred Hitchcock

^that’s all I have ):





I love my skin!

This is so important for children of color to see

I want to cry.
This is so awesome.

Lessons taken away from this post
1) The US is not any better than any country and should get off its high horse
2) These countries are not any better than the US..hierarchy is irrelevant when we talk about violations of human rights
3) These statements does not mean the governments of these countries should be any less accountable for all the crimes against humanity they have committed. Same goes for the US.

Funeral was released on September 14, 2004 in North America.
Listen to this masterpiece on its integrity to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

I know a lot of people follow me that don’t listen or even care about Arcade Fire but if you take anything away from my crazy blogging about them please listen to this album which turned 10 today. It paved a road for indie rock, is one of the most powerful and beautiful albums you’ll listen to, and is truly a huge mark in history of great music.
