everything continues, fuck it


Just when you think America is the worst place on earth, Jackie Chan’s son might have to do 3 years in prison in China for smoking weed. Weed.


Decrease the police, free all prisoners on drug charges, stop eating animals, switch everything to solar power. This is an order. If you do not comply, we will perish.

Anonymous asked: sooo you a rough sex blog preaching feminism? fuckin weird


Look man. I don’t give a fuck if i’m knuckle deep in her ass hole and she’s covered in cum and tied to my bed frame, I still hold her equal to me.

Needs to be said over and over to egomaniacal idiot moron fucks who act like being wanted by them is the ONLY valuable thing in life, and if a woman does not chose to fuck them, then they are worthless pond scum. Fuck. That. Shit. All men need to find themselves before looking for someone, ego death is the only way man can advance one’s self. 

I’ve been having to apologize for my gender way too much lately, but fuck it, I will again and again. I’m sorry that seemingly like 95% of men are complete piles of shit who do not value a woman as an equal. If I come onto you and you don’t want to fuck me, then there’s nothing I can do but be nice and hope you might change your mind at a later time (and guess what - that does sometimes happen - if you were not an entitled spoiled brat you would know this). Being over 25 and acting like you will only ever have one shot and if you don’t get what you want, the only action is to act like a little bratty crybaby spoiled child - that makes me want to crush you. An example of this would be what just happened to my friend, where after hanging out with a guy a couple times and not feelin his vibe, told him she was not into him - a real man would be like “word, that’s your loss” and bailed, but instead she got several texts calling her a cunt and other childish names after he had been turned down, when this guy was 40+ with a kid! That’s some shameful to the species shit. Get your fuckin grown man on already, I’d want to see your head kicked in and every girl taking a shit on your face, but even that wouldn’t be humiliating enough. Men like that deserve worse.  



In one of his best interviews, Sidney Lumet discusses his directing style developed over 50 years of filmmaking including such noteworthy films as 12 Angry Men, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Dog Day Afternoon and Network. Due to the length of the interviews, they have been divided into chronological chapters for easier viewing. To view a chapter and see its full transcript, click on the thumbnails.

The cinematography concept of Network was wonderful and Owen Roizman carried it brilliantly. Since it was a film about corruption, we would corrupt the camera. There was a realistic look with William Holden and Peter Finch in the beginning, by the end of the movie it looked like a Ford commercial. It was so gorgeous, it looked like A Man and a Woman, we just gradually made the film look gorgeous. I never liked to see any of this happening. My objection to a lot of work is the stuff that draws attention to itself. I like to sit back and let it hit me. A lot of what I see that I don’t like is the stuff that draws attention to itself. In Network we stretched it over 2 hours so you never see it happening. The original ad for Network was one of the best ads I’ve ever seen. Manhattan skyline with TV cameras with Peter Finch on a cross. The copy said “The greatest story ever sold.” Great ad. Arthur Krim put up money. By the time picture came out all that was left was the lightning bolt. Literally. Just the lightning bolt. —Sidney Lumet

Network (1976) was written by Paddy Chayefsky (1923-1981). Chayefsky said he didn’t write the film as an attack on the television industry (“it’s not a brutal attack, maybe a murderous attack, but not brutal,” he laughs in the interview), he just described the world as he saw it around him. He wants to get a message across but if it happens it’ll be a bonus. First and foremost the story has to be entertaining. Chayefsky won the Oscar for Best Writing for Network. Howard Beale’s moving speech is timeless: the problems are as relevant today as they were when the film was made. Script of the Week: Network

Dear every screenwriter, read this: Paddy Chayefsky’s screenplay for Network [pdf]. (NOTE: For educational purposes only). The DVD/Blu-ray of the film is available at Amazon and other online retailers. Absolutely our highest recommendation.

Dave Itzkoff’s marvelous book Mad as Hell: The Making of Network and the Fateful Vision of the Angriest Man in Movies is a must-have on your shelf. Purchase your copy at Amazon.
