Modern Native Americans in Cinema

Modern Native Americans in Cinema

Songs My Brothers Taught Me was first introduced at last year's Sundance Film Festival in Utah, then traveled to the Cannes Film Festival in France.  The film, in which [Irene] Bedard is Co-executive producer and portrays the role of Lis Winters [a single mother] is, according to Bedard, the story of a young boy and girl from the Pine Ridge Reservation and the struggles that they face. ''The entirety of the film is meant to help people understand why someone wouldn't leave the Rez.  A lot of people have asked me, 'Well, if it's so hard to find jobs, why don't you just leave?' The film answers that question.'' Conceived by Chloé Zhao, t

Suffering from OCD and Clinical Depression

Suffering from OCD and Clinical Depression

I didn't ever plan on making this public (only a few close confidants have been aware of this), but I feel now is the time I must say something, however small and ineffective it may be. In the last several weeks or so, I've been receiving numerous comments, notes, etc. from people asking me to do stuff, whatever the reason is, for them (JazzBerryTigerCandy (https://www.deviantart.com/jazzberrytigercandy), I definitely don't mean you; I promise to get back to you within the week). Being too selfless and empathetic towards people is definitely one of my biggest character downfalls. Plenty of the time, I don't know how to say no, extremely similar in ways to the character of Wilt from Cr

HP: The Character Vault (Baby Severus + Lily)

HP: The Character Vault (Baby Severus + Lily)

Cross-posted here to LiveJournal So, my copy of Jody Revenson's Harry Potter: The Character Vault just shipped in yesterday. I thought I lost interest in Harry Potter, and perhaps I did for awhile there, but this book has really brought me back to this universe. The content is, naturally amazing, even though a lot of it is reprinted information from previously published interviews with behind-the-scenes folks and cast members, and the photos are, understandably, gorgeous and will make any Potterhead as high as a kite. While I'm aware that SnitchSeeker shared one of these images already from The Prince's Tale, I was able to take a better qual

Girl of Colour Auditioned for Joe Wright's 'Pan'

Girl of Colour Auditioned for Joe Wright's 'Pan'

Cross-posted here to LiveJournal Mya-Lecia Naylor circa 2015, courtesy of A&J Management True, we can all agree that Joe Wright’s new addition to the Peter Pan verse is an utter, miserable, joyless flop—a movie that’s so chaotically confused that it doesn’t quite know what the honest hell it wants to be. Rotten Tomatoes may not always be the golden way to go, but a rating as low as this speaks volumes on its own: The only somewhat ‘’redeemable’’ aspect (well, not really since it lasts for merely two minutes out of the entire two hour film)? The badass rendition of Nirvana’s ‘&

Trans Identity is NOT a Sexual Orientation, Y'all

Trans Identity is NOT a Sexual Orientation, Y'all

Cross-posted here to LiveJournal [Note: I was forced to shorten the title from my original LiveJournal post, but only just. Thanks, DeviantArt for allowing such little room for subjects.] Artwork © 2006 by Victoria Francés, courtesy of her Official Website Lately, I've been experiencing some intense emotional and mental stress related problems that could partially explain my prolonged ''absence'' from here that found me seeking therapy for the first time in a long while (I quote 'absence' because while I have been logging in every once in awhile to clear away notifications and read through entries, neither have I been speaking mu

Fan Art of My Original Characters

Fan Art of My Original Characters

Let's call this a special art feature. It's rare, funny and strange when this happens - since I don't really post about my original projects that often given how obvious it may be by how slow I work and just my own personal insecurities with sharing them, it's more than naturally expected - but when certain artists do decide to take a stab at one of my original characters, it makes me more than happy to see their own interpretations of them. Firstly, Ivy Ezayre, a 12-year-old FTM transgender boy (he was originally genderqueer, but he changed as I did) of The Time of Chemical Ivy, an original unproduced screenplay project in-progress, by Asa

Filled With People Who Are Filled With Shit

Filled With People Who Are Filled With Shit

There's a hole in the world Like a great black pit And it's filled with people Who Are filled with shit And the vermin of the world Inhabit it... –Stephen Sondheim, ''The Barber and His Wife'', Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street It's that time again... From the title alone, it should be no question that I'm in a rather shitty mood. With it comes disappointment, loathing and feelings of failure regarding my... ''creations.'' Thus, I have placed more things from my gallery in storage. I was tempted to place my whole gallery in storage but alas, I left a few things still up. It's only a temporary measure... until I stop

Mojo Jojo and Prison Rape

Mojo Jojo and Prison Rape

Cross-posted HERE @ LiveJournal NOTE: This is not a silly post. This is an analysis on an implied prison rape that appeared in a cartoon. Like most who have grown up in the generation of 90s cartoons, there were many adult references—either explicitly or subtly—placed within these seemingly innocent, child-geared universes. These references were unmistakably included intentionally by the creators, specifically for the adult viewers who may be watching the shows with their children and therefore would totally get them. Of course, I doubt many of these adult in-jokes would have scarred such younger viewers since they would have be

Oasis' Requiem: New Screenplay

Cross-posted HERE @ LiveJournal A first post in a very long time. Yet another project… Read if you please. Comments are not necessary. Sigur loves Ros by ~ssuunnddeeww on deviantART I've been a bitch with updating as of late because, well, Uni is just too basic and ''youthful'' to ramble about. (If your level of caring is set at zero, then read no further; no skin off my arse.) However, I've passed my Intro to Screenwriting course last semester at UNLV and two other film classes I had to take which was just watching films all day for four hours. Cheers! (As for the screenplay I completed for the former course, well, I'm working on revisin

I'm Terribly Sorry...

I'm Terribly Sorry...

... that I stored nearly half my gallery. There were so many errors, flaws, mistakes - you name it - that I couldn't help but notice in older deviations especially. It's only temporary, until I can correct what I hate to see. I'm also sorry for not being here, or for that matter just about anywhere, for over a week. I deliberately haven't used my computer or the Internet that entire time. I was in a shitty mood. Someone said something to me about my gender identity that affected me much more than it should have. I'm a little over it now. There's no need to elaborate. I will be a little behind in catching up on all that I missed so please be p

Photography: Do You Dream In Colour?

Photography: Do You Dream In Colour?

Cross-posted HERE @ LiveJournal I am more of a shitty drawing 'artist'-type, although I just recently got into ''random photo taking'' - ''random'' because I'm still very amateur and am still learning to the point where I don't consider it to be ''real'' photography yet - in a poignant, artistic manner. But the only way to possibly get there one day is to keep improving. As Henri Cartier-Bresson said: "Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst." Well, I'm still more of a sketcher so as of right now it's only a hobby, although I'd still like to get better. Because from my perspective, photography is one of the most complicated art forms th

URGENT: BISEXUAL YOUTH IN NEED OF HELP

Cross-posted HERE @ LiveJournal This is an extremely serious post. If anyone out there wants to/can, I desperately need some strong help/advice/whatever you can give me right now. Also, this is a very difficult entry to properly word/express so I apologise greatly if it sounds all over the fucking place. I'm not writing a thesis paper for my Uni, so I can give a shit less right now. Spirit by ~IMustBeDead +++PLEASE READ+++ I've been ''separated'' from my cousin for the longest time and we've just been recently reunited a couple years back.
