Who knows. You don’t know. I could be.
How did the Hobbit continually lose in costume design and visual effects
They literally transformed 13 actors into dwarves with full beards and super complex outfits and just this year alone literally animated a giant fucking dragon as well as a massive cavernous kingdom and made that shit look real I don’t understand this
the academy board is filled with smug elitists
could do with a few smaug elitists
DO I HAVE TO SAY THIS EVERY YEAR?
I can’t speak for the special effects, but as a designer, a fantasy film is a lot easier to work on than something like The Great Gatsby, because none of it has to be real.
The job of a designer is to create a realistic setting and make you believe the characters’ stories, and in a fantasy film that’s quite easily done because you don’t have a reality to base it on. There are very few constraints
The reason Gatsby won this year and Lincoln won last year is because their designers did have constraints. They were trying to represent a place and time that really existed. It is much harder to make something accurate and realistic than just pretty. The Oscar winning designers can do both.

actual straight white boy problems: when people reduce a group of people to a label for biased assholes to make abusive jokes out of

you know you’re getting old when you watch the little mermaid and when ariel says “i’m 16 years old. i’m not a child anymore.” and you’re just sat there like yes you fucking are young lady stop it
The day you start agreeing with the parents in kids movies is the day it’s all over.
This is a real movie that real people put time into
i would pay $50 to see this movie
i dont know how to feel about this
1. why would you make such a stupid movie
2. i cant wait to see this
Fun Story: My director kept telling me and my tenor sax buddy to play softer. No matter what we did, it wasn’t soft enough for him. So getting frustrated, I told my buddy “Dont play this time. Just fake it”
Our Band Director then informed us we sounded perfect.
To my readers: “p” means quiet, “pp” means really quiet. I’ve never seen “pppp” before haha.
On the contrast, “f” means loud, and “ffff” probably means so loud you go unconscious.
I had ffff in a piece once and my conductor told me to play as loudly as physically possible without falling off my chair…
Me and my trombone buddies had “ffff” and he sat next to me and played so hard that he fell out of his chair.
The lengths we go for music.
Okay yeah so I play the bass clarinet and the amount of air you have to move and the stiffness of the reed means it only has two settings and that is loud and louder, with an optional LOUDEST that includes a 50% probability of HORRIBLE CROAKING NOISE which is the bass equivalent of the ubiquitous clarinet shriek.
One day, when I was in concert band in high school, we got a new piece handed out for the first time, and there was a strange little commotion back in the tuba section — whispering, and pointing at something in the music, and swatting at each other’s hands all shhh don’t call attention to it. And although they did attract the attention of basically everyone else in the band, they managed to avoid being noticed by the band director, who gave us a few minutes to look over our parts and then said, “All right, let’s run through it up to section A.”
And here we are, cheerfully playing along, sounding reasonably competent — but everyone, when they have the attention to spare, is keeping an eye on the tuba players. They don’t come in for the first eight measures or so, and then when they do come in, what we see is:
[reeeeeeally deep breath]
[COLOSSAL FOGHORN NOISE]
The entire band stops dead, in the cacophonous kind of way that a band stops when it hasn’t actually been cued to stop. The band director doesn’t even say anything, just looks straight back at the tubas and makes a helpless sort of why gesture.
In unison, the tuba players defend themselves: “THERE WERE FOUR F’S.”
FFFF is not really a rational dynamic marking for any instrument, but for the love of all that is holy why would you put it in a tuba part.
This is the best band post
Everyone else go home
Oh man, so I play trombone, and we got this piece called Florentiner Marsch by Julius Fucik, and we saw this
which is 8 fortes. We were shocked until,
that is 24 fortes who the fuck does that
Who does that?
This guy. Take a good look - that is the moustache of a man with nothing to lose.
being a boy in a dress doesn’t make you gender fluid
its makes you a boy IN A DRESS
Being a transphobic fuck makes you a transphobic fuck.
I don’t think they’re being transphobic, I think they ment that you can wear whatever you want without being generfluid. Like a girl who wears boy clothes, and says she is a girl, means she’s a girl. If a boy wears girl clothes, and says he is a boy, he’s a boy.
you got me thank you
I wear men’s shirts a lot but does that automatically make me genderfluid? No. It makes me a girl in a hella comfy sweater.
there is so much unnecessary heterosexuality on tv
They are all trying to make our children heterosexual.
It’s the straight agenda.
I’m not heterophobic, but do we really need a straight couple in every TV show?
It’s so unrealistic to have more than one or two straight characters (who’ll then have to date eachother). The rule is one straight couple per show tops.
