Shouts out to places that let you order off the kids menu and don’t charge you extra or judge you

"When I was young there were beatniks. Hippies. Punks. Gangsters. Now you’re a hacktivist. Which I would probably be if I was 20. Shuttin’ down MasterCard. But there’s no look to that lifestyle! Besides just wearing a bad outfit with bad posture. Has WikiLeaks caused a look? No! I’m mad about that. If your kid comes out of the bedroom and says he just shut down the government, it seems to me he should at least have an outfit for that."
- John Waters on the sorry style of today’s rebels (emphasis mine)

I think I’ll wait to make an in depth analysis of Grand Budapest when I see it on a screen that isn’t a football field away from me, but at first glance it’s pretty great
*breaks into your house* would it be alright if i show the children the whoring bed?
As big a fan of downtown austin as I am, 6th street really can be the asshole of America like 95% of the time
In October 1956, Lee Strasberg stood before his class at the Actors Studio and talked about his former student. The session was audiotaped:
I saw Jimmy Dean in Giant the other night, and I must say that… [Strasberg breaks down, crying] You see, that’s what I was afraid of. [Long pause] When I got out of the cab, I cried. And it was funny, because, actually, I was crying out of two reasons. It was pleasure and enjoyment, which is odd, but I must say I cried from that, too. And the other thing was seeing Jimmy Dean on the screen.
I hadn’t cried when I heard of his death. Jack Garfein called me from Hollywood the night it happened, and I didn’t cry. It somehow was what I expected. And I don’t think I cried from that now. What I cried at was the waste, the waste.
As someone who grew up in Texas in the 2000s, Boyhood is so fascinating to me. While it isn’t an exact reflection of my childhood, it has some significant similarities that are striking. Narratively, sometimes it loses it’s way, which isn’t surprising considering it’s length, but on the whole it’s very good
