I’M FUCKING SCREAMING OMGGGGGG THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE 90S TO ROMANTICIZED BY NON-90S KIDS FUCK
I feel like a legend.
This makes me so uncomfortable.
Welcome to my nightmarish adolescence. This is so inaccurate and painful and, oh, help me.
this is charmingly terrifying
also don’t romanticize jean jackets
also people only cared about that music because they thought that → (lead to) sex
and black nail varnish, as cool as it is now, had some *serious* shitty social stigma attached to it, and often enough not in some ‘edgy’ sense
and 90s kids mostly certainly did not use their brains (did you even watch Kids???)
Berlin 2005: The Volks-limousine in front of the Volks-palast.
I get home from work and my roommates tell me, ‘oh, by the way, there’s whiskey on the dryer downstairs.’ And so there was, thoughtfully or thoughtlessly left by some unknown patron at our house show on Saturday night.

Le spectre rouge
(The Red Spectre)
Segundo de Chomón; 1907
Storyboards drawn up by an 11-year-old Martin Scorsese for The Eternal City, an imaginary widescreen Roman epic he dreamed of making. His cast included Marlon Brando, Virginia Mayo, Alec Guinness, and Richard Burton, courtesy of Old Hollywood.
One full-page illustration underlines the obsessive cinephilia that characterised Scorsese, even as a child. It is an intricately drawn and calligraphed set of images for The Eternal City, an imaginary widescreen epic that Scorsese dreamed of making as an 11-year-old. “A fictitious story of Royalty in Ancient Rome” is how he characterises it. The storyboard images are very carefully drawn and coloured in. It is striking that he has given himself a bigger credit as producer-director than any of the stars (who include Marlon Brando, Richard Burton, Virginia Mayo and Alec Guinness.) —Martin Scorsese: You talkin’ to me?
Many of the greatest film directors began their careers as graphic designers, painters, or illustrators, but aside from the few established artist-directors such as Derek Jarman and Jean Cocteau, little is known of their creative work outside the medium of film. For the first time, film writer Karl French presents the exciting, diverse artwork of over 20 international directors, offering a fascinating new perspective on their work. Recent exhibitions on the subject prove that the time is ripe for a book that explores this exciting crossover of film and art.
Includes gems like Alfred Hitchcock’s atmospheric storyboards for The 39 Steps, Charlie Chaplin’s sketches, Martin Scorsese’s storyboards for the final shootout scene in his iconic 1976 film Taxi Driver, Akira Kurosawa’s painted storyboards for Ran, and John Huston’s luminous paintings. An iconic film still accompanies the artwork of each director. Unfortunately, Art by Film Directors is now out-of-print. A few remaining copies can be found at Amazon & AbeBooks.

I’m sorry, but a few firecrackers launched into illegal colonies is not on the same plane as the horrific plans of Hitler and Himmler.
I’m aware that there is much work to do here, but I don’t have any respect for those who ‘stand with Israel’ or claim to ‘stand for peace’ while pretending that there is any moral equivalence between small rocket fire and a modern, well-armed and nuclear state massacring a defenseless population basically just for fun.
