Some filmdrunk dame.

500 films. 365 days. Let's do this.

On April 19, 2014, I got to see a live staged reading of Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ with a superstar cast that featured Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Amber Tamblyn, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, James Remar, & Kurt Russell, to name a few. No cameras were allowed & there was no streaming live. It was held at the Ace Hotel United Artists theatre in Los Angeles, CA, put on by Film Independant.

To watch Tarantino give direction & personally narrate his own script, while these phenomenal actors brought the characters to life was amazing. The director informed the audience that they were reading from a first draft of the script, but that he would rewrite it at least two more times. Also, informing that the entire “Chapter 5” of the film would in no way resemble what was performed that night so, this was the only time & place anyone would ever see it. It was exciting to be apart of that. 1,200 people got to see this once in a lifetime performance & I got to be one of them. :)

Anonymous asked: Do you have a picture of the self portrait that you gave shia? Thank you for sharing the experience!

Yes, you can see it here: http://canvasopera.blogspot.com/2009/12/save-me.html It’s very hard for me to give away any piece of art I do, and I have absolutely no foundation to reason why I decided to gift him such a personal piece, but it seemed right to me. I felt like he would take care of it.

Anonymous asked: Please be honest, what do you think is going on with Shia? :(

Honestly, I don’t know what is going on. I don’t think many actually do. I think, as a whole, a lot of us forget that we are not limited in freedom the way that celebrities are. The luxury of being able to say whatever we want or do whatever we like without regard for who hears/sees it is something we take for granted. When someone’s words and actions are constantly being monitored & then when a backlash hits because of them doing something out of what is expected of them.. it can affect pretty harshly. Everyone, media and public alike, need to act decently, regardless of what the situation is or how the person of circumstance is acting. I suppose only time will tell.

deshacheyenne asked: i read your post about meeting shia. i was so touched by it. you are truly a beautiful person.<3 (ps. i'm pretty sure you win at life.) xx

Thank you kindly for your sweet words, lovely. It’s so nice to know you were so moved by it. :)
