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

    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?

“Because of my relative candor on Twitter regarding why I quit my day job, my DMs have overflowed with similar stories from colleagues around the globe. These peeks behind the curtains of film festivals, venues, distributors and funding bodies weren’t pretty. Certain dismal patterns recurred (and resonated): Boards who don’t engage with or even understand their organization’s artistic mission and are insensitive to the diverse neighborhood in which their organization’s venue is located; incompetent founders and/or presidents who create only obstacles, never solutions; unduly empowered, Trumpian bean counters who chip away at the taste and experiences that make organizations’ cultural offerings special; expensive PR teams that don’t bring to the table a bare-minimum familiarity with the rich subcultural art form they’re half-heartedly peddling as “product”; nonprofit arts organizations for whom art now ranks as a distant-second goal behind profit.”

To me, Hunter S. Thompson was a hero. His early books were great, but in many ways, his life and career post–Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail is a cautionary tale for authors. People expected him to be high and drunk all the time and play that persona, and he stuck with that to the end, and I don’t think it was good for him. I always sort of feel mixed emotions when I hear that people went and hung out with Hunter and how great it was to get high with Hunter. The fact is the guy was having difficulty doing any sustained writing at all for years probably because so many quote, unquote, “friends” wanted to get high with him … There was a badly disappointed romantic there. I mean, that great line, “This is where the wave broke, the tide rolled back … ” This was a guy that was hurt and disappointed and very bitter about things, and it made his writing beautiful, and also with that came a lot of pain.
