Okay, I never noticed until just this second that Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’s names are written in the Russian alphabet before they’re written in English. Yay!
ETA: It looks like they do it with the kids too, but for a much shorter time so you can barely see it. I don’t think the do it with Noah Emmerich, or if so it’s too quick to really see it. (And it looks like they also do it with F/X presents…)
Cindy Sherman, from Untitled Film Stills, 1977-1980
Other artists had drawn upon popular culture, but Sherman’s strategy was new. For her the pop-culture image was not a subject (as it had been for Walker Evans) or raw material (as it had been for Andy Warhol) but a whole artistic vocabulary, ready-made. Her film stills look and function just like the real ones—those 8-by-10-inch glossies designed to lure us into a drama we find all the more compelling because we know it is not real.
In theUntitled Film Stills there are no Cleopatras, no ladies on trains, no women of a certain age. There are, of course, no men. The sixty-nine solitary heroines map a particular constellation of fictional femininity that took hold in postwar America—the period of Sherman’s youth, and the ground-zero of our contemporary mythology. In finding a form for her own sensibility, Sherman touched a sensitive nerve in the culture at large. (via)
not everyone who unfollows over sj stuff unfollows because they disagree with it? a lot of the topics that social justice deals with can be extremely emotionally exhausting and for some people can cause or increase anxiety and so on. there are people who, understandably, can’t deal with a lot of those kinds of things. don’t you fucking dare call people “trash” for trying to take care of themselves and for putting their own mental health first
[please do not remove the text] Recently, I saw an article that said that this generation may be the first not growing up on reruns of I Love Lucy. This made me quite sad and I wondered how many Lucy fans there still are out there. Let’s have faith in knowing that this isn’t a Lucyless generation. Reblog if you love Lucy, whetheryou’ve seen only an episode or two or know them all by heart. Don’t reblog to hate; I just want to see how many fans there are. If Lucy has ever made you laugh and smile, then reblog/like ♥
