    Kirby is keeping it real – this went pretty fast – i want 10 more minutes .

  2. Foamy Squirrel says:

    This doesn’t appear to be the same preview picture from when you first uploaded – someone contact you and ask to change?

  3. David Poland says:

    no, Foamy… YouTube only offers 3 screenshots. When I looked at the one that posted, I went in and picked another… takes time for it to be changed.

    This one’s better, no?

  4. Foamy Squirrel says:

    Much better. But being contacted by PR agents is also a better narrative. 😉

  5. sanj says:

    people sure notice the minor things – like the first 10 seconds there is something on the ceiling but nobody knows

    this could have been shot outside – you were 5 seconds away
    from that window.

    Great interview – she’s holding onto some serious starpower. I hope she’s given the chance.

  7. sanj says:

    she got feature in Maxim magazine – the girls of Project X
    its not that risky …

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK

    AT

    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER.

    The only flaw in the magical Project X is that kid has THIS chick as his BEST FRIEND but doesn’t seem to notice for half the movie?

    Am I the only one having flashbacks to 1988 when I’m looking at some new actress from a movie called Dangerous Liaisons?

“There are critics who see their job as to be on the side of the artist, or in a state of imaginative sympathy or alliance with the artist. I think it’s important for a critic to be populist in the sense that we’re on the side of the public. I think one of the reasons is, frankly, capitalism. Whether you’re talking about restaurants or you’re talking about movies, you’re talking about large-scale commercial enterprises that are trying to sell themselves and market themselves and publicize themselves. A critic is, in a way, offering consumer advice. I think it’s very, very important in a time where everything is commercialized, commodified, and branded, where advertising is constantly bleeding into other forms of discourse, for there to be an independent voice kind of speaking to—and to some extent on behalf of—the public.”
~ A. O. Scott On One Role Of The Critic

“Every night, we’d sit and talk for a long, long time and talk about the process and I knew he was very, very intrigued about what could be happening. Then of course, one of the fascinating things he told me about was how he had readers who were reading for him that never knew it was Stanley Kubrick. So if he heard of a novel, he would send it out to people. I think he did it through newspaper ads at the time. And he would send it out to people and ask for a kind of synopsis or a critique of the novel. And he would read those. And it was done anonymously. But he said there were housewives and there were barristers and all sorts of people doing that. And I thought, yeah, that’s a really good way to open up the possibilities. Because otherwise, you’re randomly looking, walking through a bookstore or an airport. I said, “How many people are doing this?” It was about 30 people.”
~ George Miller’s Conversations With Kubrick
