Oh, The Places You'll Go

“When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.” — Anthony Mackie (via rexilla)

“But confusingly, misogynists are sometimes men who speak softly and eat vegan and say “a woman’s sexual freedom is an essential component to her liberation. So come here.” It’s a tricky world out there. And while I’d prefer a critical approach to gender from men I elect, read and even bed, in my experience, the so-called feminist men I’ve met deep down have not been less antagonistic or bigoted toward women. What I see over and over again is misogyny in sheep’s clothing, and at this point, I would rather see wolves as wolves.” —

Game of Thrones director doesn't mind illegal downloads. -


And you know what? GOOD FOR HIM.

I outlined this ages ago—making things free for viewing generates so much more hype and money than destroying all copies that circulate online. The procedure for a show to be successful should be:

1. Air the show on TV.

2. Put the episodes online on your website several hours afterward.

3. Leave the episodes there indefinitely, with an easily-accessible order. Run ads. Have ads on your website. Don’t make the episodes downloadable (unless you want that to be a premium, in which case, go ahead, charge for the downloads), just stream them.

4. Watch as your website gets hits, your investors make money, and you sell more DVDs because you’ve attracted a lot of loyal followers who, pleased with what you have provided, are genuinely interested in your show and wish to pay you for your services.

5. INCLUDE BONUS FEATURES ON YOUR DVDS. Commentaries are essential—fans LOVE commentary. 

I outlined this before: the reason I don’t watch Clone Wars, buy Clone Wars merchandise, or do anything related to the show is because I can’t easily watch it for free. And I’m not willing to take a risk by spending money on a show I might only watch once—and with five seasons out there, I’m not willing to shell out a hundred and fifty bucks for it. Video rental stores have vanished, and online rentals are inconvenient for me.

And you’re not just losing out on my interest—I’m not spreading interest to anyone else. 

And I guarantee you, if the Game of Thrones show had only been available for purchase and I couldn’t watch it online, I wouldn’t have watched it. I might not have bought the books.

Fencing is not proper behavior for a princess,” [the king] told her in the gentle-but-firm tone recommended by the court philosopher.

Cimorene tilted her head to one side. “Why not?”

“It’s … well, it’s simply not done.”

Cimorene considered. “Aren’t I a princess?”

“Yes, of course you are, my dear,” said her father with relief. He had been bracing himself for a storm of tears, which was the way his other daughters reacted to reprimands.

“Well, I fence,” Cimorene said with the air of one delivering an unshakable argument. “So it is too done by a princess.

SERIES OF MY CHILDHOOD!!! And the king of the dragons is a female dragon and they’re like “why are you the king and not the queen?” and she’s like “I feel like being the king so I’m the king.” This one and Two Princesses of Bamarre were the absolute best.
