At home with Harrison Ford, 1978
The only valid reason to time travel is to go back to the 1970’s and bang Harrison Ford. There is no other decent reason. Fuck historical events! No, fuck Harrison Ford.
Imagine that one day the whole world would look like this.
THE LAST OF US
That’s what happens when you mess with the spirit world
🌿 💃 Giant Marconi pepper that I just picked this week. It’s only the second one I’ve gotten out of my container plant, but there are about 6 more growing right now. They are smokie Italian peppers. Amazing flavor that I had never had until I grew these this year. #grow #gardening #containerplants #pepper #itsabigone
Justin Simien, director of Dear White People, joins Fresh Air to discuss his new film and what motivated him to make a satire about race relations and racial identity.
Simien on how “white movies” are just “movies”
"[Recently] Hollywood has gotten more myopic and has to make very specific choices based on how they think the audience will respond when putting a movie through the production pipeline. It’s gotten real crazily bad, I think.
I think TV has gotten it right. Shonda Rhimes has figured it out, getting multiracial casts on television and appealing to everybody. It’s interesting because I haven’t seen that with “white movies,” which most people just call “movies.” They don’t just appeal to white people, it’s taken as given that a white cast represents everyone: A white male in a movie is an everyman type character, whereas a black man in a movie is a black character and it’s a black movie and it’s only for black people.”
All those little lines are jokes! ALL THE JOKES! (at least the ones I noticed)
Last year Jeremy Bowers, Danny DeBelius, Christopher Groskopf, Aly Hurt and I made a very silly interactive graphic exhaustively tabulating the running jokes in Arrested Development, along with their connections:
And wouldn’t you know it, someone just put in a book — giving me an excuse to put in on tumblr. So if you’d like to see how many times GOB says “I’ve made a huge mistake,” check out the graphic.
I’ve made a huge mistake. And my mistake is not seeing this infographic until now. -Kate
