I stumbled upon these guys last year while looking up inspiration for one of my art projects! I love looking through their website and seeing all types of art like film, graphic design, and photography.There are a bunch of guys who collaborate to create these awesome designs, their work is unbelievable! There's Benjamin Roudet who films, does graphic design, and photography, he is 'The Big Addict'. Theres Tilt, who is a graffiti artist. They have a couple other guys to come along too, I still can't really figure out who they are but there names are Der and Dran…
Okay everyone knows I have an art/poster problem. I'm addicted and can't stop. I found another awesome poster artist on etsy… don't let me buy one.
The Art of Adam Juresko
Also, if you have not seen every single one of these movies... stop what you're doing and come over because you're seriously missing out.
It makes me sad when people miss out on good movies.
Todd Slater hands down makes the coolest posters. I was searching online for some and I came across his website and I love him! Tell me this Big Lebowski poster isn't the coolest thing you have ever seen? (even cooler if you have actually seen the movie)
Another really cool site is Status Serigraph! They make awesome posters, unfortunately like Todd Slater, they're all sold out.
I am in love with this show. If you are a girl, you have to watch it.
this is the cast:
I can't say enough about this show so I'm just going to say watch it. It's hilarious and unbelievably relatable
Workaholics is on at 10pm on wednesday nights, I love this show and will always have a special place in my heart for those boys… especially Blake. BUT Broad City is the show that comes on after it. I watched it a few weeks ago because I wasn't ready to get out of bed and turn the TV off… the remote is MIA. This show is so hilarious I am SO glad there is finally a show like this with girls in it! Makes me not feel like such a boy having to watch shows like Workaholics to get a good laugh. It is the same type of humor, but with girls as the main people. Amy Poehler is the executive producer, which kind of surprises me because the show is definitely a little more inappropriate that the types of shows she is usually involved in.
Phillip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his apartment in NYC this morning. It is such sad news, he was such an inspiration and has been apart of many of my favorite movies. I remember being so amazed by him when I fist saw him in Capote during my film noir class back in high school, an amazingly challenging role, which he pulled off flawlessly. He was 46, R.I.P
"We all can't be Superman, but we sure as shit can train hard, and with loads of practice, we can be Batman. And who the fuck doesn't wanna be Batman? Batman has an impeccable moral compass, he's clever and mysterious, and when fucktards get sassy, he punches them in the face."
"Life is like hockey: It's an exhausting, but exhilarating game, best when played with heart. If you go out there unprepared, you're gonna lose teeth. Actually, with age, you're gonna lose teeth regardless; might as well lose 'em fighting for something. It's a fun game, a brutal game, and a beautiful game, the fastest game."
"Here's the tough shit: Security, normalcy, convenience, protection and identity are opiates you've gotta wean yourself off before you can be an individual. You can't stand out if you're blending in."
"As human beings we govern our actions with our deepest fears. But if you name that shit, you claim that shit: Let enough people into your closet and you'll find there's no more room for skeletons. Leave yourself nowhere to hide and you can live life unguarded."
Kevin Smith's personal inspiration: John Hughes (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off).
The Tenets of Buellerism
amazing advice from Tough Sh*t by Kevin Smith
Right when I started thinking about film as a career I stumbled upon a book by director Kevin Smith (I wrote about it in my last blog.) It was one of the most inspiring books and I loved it because it wasn't sappy, and cutsie. It was inappropriate, hilarious, and such a fantastic read about not worrying about the future.
Ever since I read that book I have been totally in love with him! Today, while browsing the movie section at Target, like I do every week, I found an awesome package deal with three of his movies: Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back! Anyways, I tweeted about it and Kevin Smith favorited it. Greatest day ever!!! Even if you are not into film, the book is crazy inspirational so go read it!
No this is not about to be a post on how to actually survive the cold.
Never take advice from me.
This is more about entertaining yourself, while stuck inside.
Go on Netflix, I know everyone has one or at least knows someone who has one.
Yesterday I watched Prince Avalanche and Frances Ha
Such good films! PLEASE don't let the fact that Frances Ha is in black and white throw you off!!
What I like to do is pick a a favorite actor or director and watching a bunch of their films!
The reason I am always recommending Indie is because they're not seen by a lot of people, so its fun to share awesome films that you may have never heard of or thought to watch!
If you're not into the Indie thing, go to the Cult Films category!
Cult Films are movies that have people weirdly obsessed with them so they are always interesting!
My cult faves: The Big Lebowski and Harold and Maude)
If you're wanting something a little more serious watch Red State by Kevin Smith. It has a major Tarantino vibe.
FINALLY saw Inside Llewyn Davis!! And I actually saw it with other people, not alone! It was so good!! Definitely a change from the movies I have seen so far this break, much more serious and gloomy, but still a great film! I also watched Fargo, also done by the Coen Brothers, which was just as good.
