    this guy is a really good speaker …one of the best probably next to Charlize Theron.

    too bad he couldn’t make a 13 part series for pbs / bbc or hbo …cause that stuff goes on repeats and people will find it ..

    i remember Mike Moore doing sicko movie – trying to
    change the healthcare system. i’m not sure where that
    went .. people stopped talking about that.
    will people stop talking about this ?

    maybe he should have waited for tiff 2012 and
    got best documentary oscar nomination.

    the house i live in – not the greatest title – cause
    there’s a song with same title – plus it looks like a home improvement show plus youtube search suggests “the skin i live in” movie …

    would like to see another dp/30 where he talks about regular movies ….

    DP – you have to put more descriptions on the youtube channel so people can find it by keyword .

    “Latin American leaders have joined together to condemn the U.S. government for soaring drug violence in their countries, blaming the United States for the transnational cartels that have grown rich and powerful smuggling dope north and guns south.”

“Critics have said that I’ve made a career out of confounding expectations. Really? Because that’s all I do? That’s how I think about it. Confounding expectations. Like I stay up late at night thinking about how to do it. “What do you do for a living, man?” “Oh, I confound expectations.” You’re going to get a job, the man says, “What do you do?” “Oh, confound expectations. And the man says, “Well, we already have that spot filled. Call us back. Or don’t call us, we’ll call you.” Confounding expectations. I don’t even know what that means or who has time for it.”
~ Bob Dylan

“There was somebody from Creative Screenwriting Magazine who was here earlier, and she said ‘Have you got any advice for writers?’ and I said, ‘Yeah, write standing up’. Because this time around, I bought a cheap little stand off Amazon, and I wrote standing up, because it’s slightly uncomfortable – it’s not so uncomfortable that you can’t do it, it’s slightly uncomfortable. And it means you don’t end up going on the internet, basically, because you’re there to do a fucking job. So I’ll write for 25 minutes… then I’ll go and play on the PlayStation for a bit. And I do this all night. I go nocturnal. And then I go back and I’ll write a bit more, and then I go back to the PlayStation, and then I go back… And hopefully by then, I’ll lose track of time and then I’ll be writing for fucking ages, and then there’s a point where you get excited about it. So my advice for writers is always: write standing up, and get Scrivener, and write in 25 minute bursts, and get a PlayStation.”
~ Charlie Brooker
