Hello internet, the name is Lineke. Send me an owl if you'd like to know me, I like to talk to people but tend to be terribly shy about it. I am infatuated with a lot of things, some examples being: Mythology, Crossovers, Meta-fiction.

Things you will probably find back on this blog: Doctor Who, The Avengers, Supernatural, BBC Sherlock, any crossovers of the above, Studio Ghibli movies, Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons and probably a lot of randomness.

Have a nice stay!

When I was doing my first movie, the only thing I knew is that I wanted a female editor. Because I just felt a female editor would be more nurturing. To the movie and to me. They wouldn’t try to be winning their way just to win their way, all right? They wouldn’t be trying to shove their agenda or win their battles with me. They would be nurturing me through this process.

Quentin Tarantino, “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing”

this is a weird documentary. they use the default pronoun “he” to refer to editors, yet time and again there’s creepy shit in there about the way male directors, with their massive egos, have used these “invisible” non-celebrated women collaborators for their own self-aggrandizement

also tarantino sounds like a fucking sexist prick here

esp. given the fact that women in Hollywood are simply not allowed the opportunities as a director that a white man like him received

they’re second-place little helpmeets who are disallowed from the big time

and they’ve got to ~nurture~ you without getting the kind of credit you get as a white male director

bleh

It’s double gross because the drop of editing quality in Django was SO DAMN OBVIOUS. Sally Menke was who defined that delicious postmodern visual handwriting for him (and it’s shameful I only learned that late in art school, after years of considering myself “a film buff”), and her passing is a great loss to the craft.

I didn’t know Sally Menke’s name or how much of the work attributed to The Great Tarantino is hers before tonight

it’s sickening how women’s artistic genius is erased

and Tarantino got exactly what he wanted: someone to “nurture” him and make him look good as an artist

and never be spoken of

never take any of the limelight from him

because fucking nobody cares about women and their achievements

and white male directors have been and continue to be the little feted monstergod babies of Hollywood

Film editing is one of those positions that women take because they can’t get hired as directors. Kind of like how women in the comics industry end up as colorists because noone wants them as the headline artist.

How many great directors have partnered consistently with female editors? A lot of them. Scorsese is a great example. Thelma Schoonmaker has edited every single one of his films since 1980, starting with Raging Bull. She is instrumental to his success. But is she a household name like Scorsese is? Of course not.

Imagine a world where she directed her own films, and what those films could have been like. I’m not saying all film editors wish they were directors or anything. But it’s no coincidence that the position most open to female moviemakers is the most unsung, and that’s part of why there are so few female directors today.

It’s 2089. all cops have been replaced by genetically modified dogs that let children pet them, help old ladies cross the street, chase down criminals, never eat donuts, bark at cat-callers, analyze dna, easily track down murders, pee on white collar criminals, and tear the faces off of rapists. utopia has been reached. 

How was this accomplished you ask?
Well its simple
Dogs are colorblind

Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
