I often feel like a woman. Especially when I wear heels and that slinky black dress that House of Leaves likes so much.
EDIT: And I like to be on top (of the page).
^ You’re on the wrong thread, Soy. See the Rocky Horror Picture Show thread (s).
I guess I was thinking err error double r though :(
I was thinking of the word “ergo”.
Cogito ergo sum.
Don’t worry, Bijoux, Sam.
Mostly I was thinking about Ben associating it with air and dicks. And going somewhere.
NO DICKS ALLOWED.
Totally! STL is already RIFE with them.
Odi : hahaha not ben. Never ;)
Since when is Odilonvert a word?
@odilonvert: Totally! STL is already RIFE with them.
LOL I’m in the middle of that sticky business. Them irresponsible adults…
^ yeah I saw you trying to change the conversation, lol.
@Ben — since I said so.
Yeah the dude is such an innocent presence on STL.
No guy is ever an innocence presence, in theory…
No really……..what’s an Odilonvert?
Stop it silly! It’s a made up word. Odilon from the painter Odilon Redon, and vert for green in French!
I see what you did there.
Now I can rest easier at night.
Well, not really but at least that’s once mystery solved……
Has anyone sent a shout out to Ally the Manic Listmaker yet, cause even though she doesn’t post much anymore, she’s still putting up fun and interesting lists…and had a great blog (Cinema Becomes Her).
Brad : yep we mentioned Ally a bit ago. She does live up to her name, and her lists are really good.
this is so cute! :D
(hopefully i got the code right)
I’ll try and write more thoughtfully about films. I think my posts in the past were usually for self amusement, and trying to make the forums more conversational then any type of scholarly appreciation for the films in question. It was an exercise in mastery of one liners or non-sequitors.
Preciate all yall being here. Including the lurkers and the ones that don’t want to put their gender identity out there.
It’s all good, Mary.
Sometimes I’m in the mood to get into more serious discussions, and sometimes I’m not. When in a more serious mood, mostly I approach things from an artist’s perspective, because when I first got here there were so few people speaking up about being filmmakers and I think that the discussions here need some perspective from that angle. And very, VERY few people who are in Garage cross over and talk on the forum. I see the site as a whole and I think people who make films should be interacting with people who don’t. There are relationships there that are interesting and fruitful, and should be cultivated.
FWIW, there was a pretty lively discussion about Cabin in the Woods, and we had an interesting discussion about Pulse (which I mentioned earlier). But there’s quite a bit of horror threads on the site.
Yeah, when she translated the scene it was really helpful and interesting. (On a sidenote, I wish the English-speaking posters from the Philipines, Iran, Indonesia, etc. would do something like this—or at least offer their insights into the culture.)
I’ve got some ideas that I want to write out about some films I’ve seen lately and would love to share them. Writing about films and filmmaking seems easier after having ‘worked’ as a development intern doing script coverage in the earlier part of ’12.
That would be great! But as Odi mentioned, you don’t really have to write serious, academic posts. Look at Odi—and I like her. ;) Seriously, Odi, does get serious and it’s great to hear her contributions on those threads, but she’s also playful and fun. There’s definitely a place for both here.
Btw, I agree that having more interactions between filmmakers and non-filmmakers would be a good thing. Maybe we need a thread to celebrate filmmakers on mubi to encourage and welcome them. :)
But as Odi mentioned, you don’t really have to write serious, academic posts. Look at Odi
What flavor of pie would you like pitched at you, Jazz? ;)
Question: Why fewer female cinephiles? On the internet I can understand why, but in real life. I started at 13 with a morbid interest in horror films that had nothing to do with gender. It’s not like I started because I saw more male cinephiles and directors and didn’t feel discouraged. I knew nothing. What keeps females away from it? How did all of you get interested in films?
@ Mathew : My parents and (much) older sister all love(d) movies. And they liked a great variety. I think that helped, but they weren’t necessarily cinephiles. My love of film kind of went like this : 5-14 years wanted to be an actress. 14-19 wanted to be behind the camera. 19-mid 20s wanted to write film theory and criticism. Now poster on Mubi.
I’ll speak for myself and say that I am not really a cinephile, in the sense that I collect them and obsess over them and write about them, make a gazillion lists and rankings, etc. etc. etc. — though I love movies. My connection to film is making them — and in that sense, experimental film. I really love the medium — it suits some things that I want to express very well.
people are people, so unless there are prizes involved please stop singling us out. thx xD
People are people …. Depeche Mode…
