Photoset reblogged from Parenthood fanblog with 227 notes

bravermanfan:

Episode 1 / Episode 90

I also think this Parenthood finale was pretty amazing. I cried a lot for all the right reasons. Shots of the empty Braverman home? Terrific. So good. A new dinner table setting that mirrors the opening credits? Paired with a cover of The Times, They Are A-Changin’ that I’ve listened to like 4 times already? Yess. I want to see all these faces back on my TV in September, but in case it’s the series finale, I think I’d be okay with that too. It’s just so beautifully done.

Two months until the season two premiere!
This interview with Johnny Ray Gill, Clayne Crawford, Abigail Spencer and Aden Young was posted on Youtube almost a year ago. The actors discussed the first season of the show after a binge screening. Since the audio quality isn’t great, I’ve transcribed their discussion under Read more. Enjoy :)

Look, I discovered how useful my in-ear earphones are! Parenthood has just finished, so that means a little more attention to rectifyfan and a little less to bravermanfan. Changing of the seasons, and all that.

Quote with 1 note

Trying to become a pop star is not for healthy people, or sick people who want to be healthy.
A great piece on Sia by Steve Knopper in the New York Times. She’s gone through some pretty rough times and this article made me appreciate the new purpose she’s found for herself as a pop song writer.

Photo reblogged from still eating oranges with 8 notes

stilleatingoranges:

Great television sometimes hides on lesser-known channels. Take Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s fascinating HitRecord on TV, for example, which plays on Pivot. Or take the Audience Network show Off Camera with Sam Jones—the best interview program on American TV. In each episode, Jones talks to a celebrity for one hour, without edits or commercial breaks. His style is relaxed and conversational; and he never talks longer than necessary. The result is light-years ahead of the typical celebrity interview.
Since Off Camera started last year, it has featured the likes of Dave Grohl, Michael B. Jordan and Laura Dern, among others. In Jones’ hands, each person is allowed to show their depth. Jordan describes his attempt in Fruitvale Station to find Oscar Grant in the conflicting anecdotes of Grant’s friends and family—and the advice he received from Forest Whitaker not to consciously imitate any of those anecdotes. From Dern, we learn that the 21st century longing for fame differs radically from her hopes as a 1970s child. And Grohl tells us why his musical idols are disco drummers.
Jones says that he wants to run a magazine, a television studio and a radio station. With Off Camera, he is well on his way. The show is best experienced visually, but it is also released online in text and audio formats, each with certain advantages. Fourteen episodes of Off Camera have been produced to date, and already it has set a new standard in interview programming. Anyone with an interest in the creative process should watch it; and they may find a good starting point embedded after the break.

I love the Off Camera interviews. They feel like such quality time.

Quote reblogged from Previously on... with 6,714 notes

50 years ago, America’s biggest employer was General Motors, where workers made the modern equivalent of $50 dollars an hour. Today, America’s biggest employer is Walmart, where the average wage is $8 dollars an hour. Which means you can share a room in a transient hotel with a drifter who cuts his toenails with a machete.

And Walmart released their annual report this month, and in it was the fact that most of what Walmart sells is food. And most of their customers need food stamps to pay for it. Meanwhile, Walmart’s owners are so absurdly rich that one of them, Alice Walton, spent over a billion dollars building an art museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, 500 miles away from the nearest person who ever would want to look at art.

And she said about it, “For years I’ve been thinking about what we can do as a family that can really make a difference.” How about giving your employees a raise, you deluded nitwit?

Take the case of Belle Knox. She’s the Duke University freshman who was recently outed as a porn star. But she doesn’t have the typical porn star biography… No, she’s a level-headed articulate 18-year-old majoring in women’s studies.

So people are saying, why the porn? Because Duke costs $61 grand a year! Since 1980, college tuition has increased 600% above the inflation rate. I’m surprised they’re not all doing porn. …

This is what the Paul Ryans of the world don’t understand — that this is not a country of lazy people and good people, so much as it is a country of rich people and desperate people.

Do you know how much Americans owe in student loans?
$1.3 trillion dollars.

We’re going to have to sell a lot of ass to pay that tab.

Post

Dear March,

-I didn’t write a post like this for February but that’s its own fault for being so short and trying to fit a course in it with way too many group assignments for my taste

-Back to March: great weather, dude (it’s probably a dude, right?)

-I’ve finally started to decide what I want to do next year in September-January and I just sent the dreaded (by me) motivation form that wants to know what I “want to achieve” in 5-10 years.

-It’s nothing. Seriously. I don’t know, man.

-Healthy and happy, strong and calm. It’s a quote from Tegan & Sara’s “Where Does the Good Go” and it’s in my head every so often. I’d never get a tattoo but if I did that would be a good quote. That’s what I always want to be, also in 5-10 years.

-I finished another book: The Ghost of the Mary Celeste. Now I’m in-between books. Not in-between jobs because I’ve never had a job.

-I promised that I’d send the we-only-talk-on-train-stations-these-days-friend an e-mail in February and we finally got a real catching up session last Friday. Really nice to have a non-hurried conversation with her again.

-Since these short term ‘resolutions’ seem to work; I’m going to send an e-mail to a company this month to ask them if there’s a chance I could do something for them in the summer. Not a random company. I have one in mind. I’m gonna have to sell myself. Probably a good thing I’ve started watching Mad Men, huh? Sell it like Draper..

-I really hate daylight savings time. And it’s kind of weird that the US does it a few weeks before us. And nothing is actually ‘saved’. If that were possible I’d save some for the winter.

Tilda Swinton underwent hours in the makeup chair to play the 84-year-old dowager Madame D. “We’re not usually working with a vast, Bruckheimer-type budget on my films, so often we’re trying a work-around,” says director Wes Anderson. “But for the old-age makeup I just said, ‘Let’s get the most expensive people we can.’”

I love this picture. Seeing the movie tomorrow! =D
