-❥ Breakfast with Scot (2007)
You’re gonna grow a lot. You’re gonna get taller, your voice is gonna change,your face is gonna change. It’ll all be amazingly different. But it’ll all happen so slowly you won’t even notice. But I would. I’d notice you. Everyday,I notice you.
That was actually a combination of me and the visual effects supervisor and the production designer sitting down and sort of coming up with the biological growth that’s growing all over the cars and what that looks like and the color palette. And we started to look at the nuclear test films from the 1940s of the nuclear blasts and just decided that it would be great if the landscape was not only violent with these creatures, but also the atmosphere. So we decided that it was kind of an eternal nuclear blast except nothing ever really gets obliterated because it’s eternal and it’s constantly going. - director Francis Lawrence on the appearance of Hell; P.D. by Naomi Shohan
The first page of FRANKENSTEIN, in Mary Shelley’s own handwriting.
This is actually the first page of Part III of Frankenstein/The Modern Prometheus. It’s beautiful.

One thing that I think that a lot of people miss about this movie (and that I honestly missed the first few times around) is that Mako isn’t just a smart, competent, kick-ass woman who’s at the top of her jaeger pilot academy class - she’s also an engineer, and in order to have been put in charge of the jaeger restoration program, she had to have been one of the best mechanical engineers in the whole PPDC.
An edition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein laid out using characters and glyphs from PDF documents obtained through internet searches. The incomplete fonts found in the PDFs were reassembled into the text of Frankenstein based on their frequency of use. The most common characters are employed at the beginning of the book, and the text devolves into less common, more grotesque shapes and forms toward the end.

THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS
In the late 1960’s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.
“But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”
"I get ribbed for that line because it was so whiny. And I remember at the time, I had to make it as juvenile as possible so that I can show how Luke matures later. So it should be embarrassing. It should be whiny and childish. But boy, has it come back to haunt me. I don’t think I ever got the chance to finally pick them up." - Mark Hamill

John Oliver explains why we should all be very excited for the World Cup. And why we should also hate FIFA with every ounce of hatred we can collectively muster.
Hey, non-brazilian followers, here’s a fairly good explanation of what’s going on around here. Please don’t support Fifa in any way. Ever.
One thing he didn’t say: there are some cities in which areas around the stadiums have, “for security reasons”, been declared “FIFA areas”. That means that during the Cup there’ll be days in which we won’t have the right to go there. There are parts of our cities that have been forbidden to us by a sports organization. If you live in a “FIFA area”, you have to fucking register your name in order to be allowed to go home. I have an elderly great-aunt in this situation. If during one of the forbidden hours she happens to get ill or suffer a fall or any of those things that made it really hard for elderly people to be alone, she will have to go stay someplace else, because no relatives will be allowed to stay with her at her home, or even go pick her up with a car.
Also, people who sell products in those areas are forbidden to work on game days, because FIFA will be selling their own products and won’t allow competition.
