I just need to repeat that I regret taking a few months off to work on my outline ... getting back into the absolutely epic flow of #writing I was in last year is just not happening. It's already near end of February and I haven't restarted my novel yet. I'm angry at myself ...
Starring #MariaDizzia, #GregKeller, and #JulianaCanfield, #TheNeighborsWindow originally premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and went on to play at dozens of festivals, winning over 20 awards in the process. Now it's an Oscar winner, too.
Dizzia gives a superb performance in this, and that's only part of what makes it stand out. This has the depth and compassion of a film like #MarriageStory, packed into only 20 minutes.
Finally just watched #TerminatorDarkFate. There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with that movie. It was amazing and a wonderful cast. There's zero reason aside from racism and misogyny that that movie should have flopped. It was fine. More than fine in fact.
Black and white version of #Parasite set for theatrical release!
"I watched the black & white version twice now, and at times the film felt more like a fable and gave me the strange sense that I was watching a story from old times." - Bong Joon-ho
Absolutely want to see this!
#JosephineDecker’s new film #Shirley isn’t a biography. It’s a drama set during one of #ShirleyJackson’s worst periods of #depression and #agoraphobia, written mostly from the perspective of a fictional young housewife. But it’s driven by women reconciling their deep inner lives with a world that expects them to live for other people, sometimes losing track of reality in the process.
Well Go USA has released a trailer for an upcoming Chinese #animated fantasy action film that you’ve got to watch titled #JiangZiya. The trailer is filled with visually stunning footage and the film looks like it’s going to tell an epic story of gods and demons. Jiang Ziya in US theaters on February 7th, 2020.
Australian birds of prey are spreading fires ...
#Australian #Aboriginal lore is replete with references to birds carrying fire, and some traditional ceremonies even depict the behaviour. Now ornithologists have collected accounts from witnesses across the savannas of Australia’s far north, known as the Top End, suggesting three Australian birds of prey species use smouldering branches to spread fires and scare prey into their waiting talons.
"The tiny smooch in TROS echoes the unnamed gay support group attendee in Avengers: Endgame, the two men making eye contact in Beauty and the Beast, the two dudes standing next to each other in Star Trek Beyond, the girlfriends who never even touch hands in Deadpool 2, the husbands with blink-and-you'll-miss-it wedding rings in Alien: Covenant, and the superheroine who didn't go out of her way to deny her "girlfriend troubles" in Power Rangers." - ANGIE HAN
#JKRowling is done for me.

Harvesting the Blood of America's Poor: The Latest Stage of #Capitalism
America is one of the only developed countries in the world that pays people to donate blood, much of it sold abroad (70% of the world's plasma is of US origin), and as commercial blood donations have soared, blood now accounts for 2% of the country's exports -- more than corn or soya.
In Mexican tradition there is the idea of dying 3 deaths: the first when you physically die, the second when your body decays and returns to nature, and the final when there is no one around who remembers you. The fear of the third death is what drives a lot of #historical research and #writing and is at least subconsciously behind the new reprinted of #HalGold's book, "#Japan's Infamous #Unit731," which keeps alive the memory of #humanrights atrocities committed by the Imperial #Japanese Army.
It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this ode to self-confidence and the love between fathers & daughters, by former NFL wide receiver Matthew A. Cherry. He also wrote a book also titled "Hair Love", which you can find at bookstores everywhere. I love how honest and pure and beautiful this short is, especially without dialogue. There's a lovely score by Daniel D. Crawford & Paul Mounsey that compliments the story.
