"You find yourself making special rules for stuff to keep. Sentimental reasons. Things that remind you why you try to be creative. Things that make you laugh. Or things that you are certain you have the very last copy in the universe of, and you are the greatest self-taught librarian ever.”

Inspired by a conversation with Blondell-gazette, I did this thing.

What can I say, I’m a color geek.

10 things I didn't know about Richard Linklater

austinkleon:

There’s a really terrific profile of filmmaker Richard Linklater in this week’s New Yorker. (Here’s a podcast of the writer, Nathan Heller (@nathanheller), talking about Linklater’s work—the drawing above is something I doodled at SXSW in 2009.)

10 interesting things I discovered…

Machine Heart of Darkness: Spree-Watching the Transformers Series

There are two jokes about dogs fucking in the first fifteen minutes of Revenge of the Fallen. They are the same dogs. Two dogs are shown having sex, and that is the joke. It is the buildup, the tension and the punchline. The same joke is repeated, one minute later. We are, presumably, expected to laugh both times. Brevity is the soul of wit, said Shakespeare, and he was wrong. Spectacularly wrong in an ugly kind of way which can only be understood in retrospect. The altitude of the film never quite recovers from the dogs fucking. I give this film two fucking dogs out of two.

I spree-watched the Transformers trilogy and wrote an article about it for you savages.

This is great.

SydFilmFest Interview: James Benning
I got to sit down with the influential experimental filmmaker at Sydney Film Festival to talk about his transition to digital filmmaking, why he only ever has one tweet online at any time and how he feels about teaching film.

"In a sense, the internet has made my work more well-known because people talk so much on the internet. So they create a demand for those things. Before I was way underrated but now I’m way overrated."

SydFilmFest Review: Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter
I really liked this one. Got to speak to David Zellner, the director, today - i/v will go up tomorrow.

She diagrams it, memorises distances and images. Her exercise of concentration is embelmatic of pure adoration of any text – an obsessive focus that results in highly personal interpretations and readings. There’s something about art that clicks on a subjective level which Kumiko is able to capture in a way rarely seen in cinema. She calls it “her treasure” because it is – it is her personal response to a creative work and a portal into a world she wishes was real and only half-convinces herself that it is.
