The Fall Behind the Scenes: Lee’s Method Acting
Lee Pace spent the two months it took to film The Fall’s hospital scenes a wheelchair. Only a select few of the crew knew that he could actually walk.
“It was hard (…) but it was about getting that performance out of Catinca, and making her feel comfortable with me, and putting the mood on set that she would be sensitive to. I do think it was valuable, because it caught a level of realism in those scenes with Catinca, a privacy and sensitivity that I don’t know we would have gotten without doing it.”
I will always reblog Catinca Untaru.
Talking about someone who makes you happy actually makes you happy.

Ah! So, at GenCon, a bunch of us were drunk and playing board games, and talking. I don’t remember how he came up, but someone mentioned a dude we all sorta know and all pretty much avoid because he’s… creepy? And says awful things? Err… anyway, we went around and were telling stories, and then my friend Erin was like “No! This is GenCon!! I will be happy. Let’s stop talking about people we DON’T like, and talk about people we DO like! Do you guys all know superradlover? I don’t know her very well, but every interaction with her I’ve ever had involves her seeing me, running up to me, saying wonderful sweet things and then she’s gone before I even have time to react. She’s like… basically the nicest person ever!” I got pretty excited, because, like, it’s true. And then we spent a long time going around telling stories of how she is always so good at making people feel at ease and is just nice to be around, and … anyway. Yay talking about people who make you happy.
I worked my way through college when I was a kid in the 70s I only made minimum wage and I made it I don't know why you kids complain so much about how hard it is to pay for schooling.
Okay lets work through this ask, because I’m not sure when in school you were in school I’m using 1970 in the USA I’m using 2013 for inflation comparison bullshit.
Minimum today in 2014 on average is: $7.25 an hour
Minimum wage on average in the 70s was between: $1.60 and $2.90
Lets convert this amount for what it would be worth today:
In 1970: $1.60 an hour would be about $7.70 today, welp that’s already more than our minimum wage so..
in 1979: $2.90 an hour would be about $9.16 well holy shit that’s way above our national average.
Average cost of university today in 2014: According to the College Board, the average cost of tuition and fees for the 2013–2014 school year [ONE FUCKING SCHOOL YEAR] was $30,094 at private colleges, $8,893 for state residents at public colleges, and $22,203 for out-of-state residents attending public universities.
So a four year degree would costs at a public university:
in-state: $35,572 Out of State: $88,812
Average costs of a public university 4 year degree in 1970: 4,828 which when converted for today would be about $28,580.66 [compare to 35,572, with our smaller minimum wage]
I’m not even fuckin with 1979, cause if you do your own research you find the same fucking information university was cheaper in the 70s across the board compared today, and minimum wage was higher.
It is literally impossible to work your way through university today
if ur gonna be a dickhead and argue with me go through the facts first jfc.
BECAUSE I APPARENTLY NEED TO FUCKING SPECIFY AGAIN FOR CERTAIN LITTLE SHITS, THIS ENTIRE THING USES ONLY NATIONAL AVERAGES BECAUSE THATS HOW YOU COMPARE SHIT. GOD FUCKING DAMMIT.
As someone who worked literally 72 hours/week average for a few years (because I had to take off of college for health reasons), I had customers and even FUCKING COWORKERS tell me this shit, and let me explain to you how I’m not “the exception” to my generation, or how I’m actually very intelligent thankyouverymuch, so I know firsthand and from logic that I cannot work my way through college. Not to mention the people who say “I just don’t understand how kids can sign up for $40,000 in loans.” Ugh. Ugh.
I FUCKING HATE BAZINGA TWINK AND THAT THE BIG BANG SUCK MY ASS SHOW FUCKING SEXIST ASS SHOW ABOUT WHITE NERDS THAT MAKE SCIENCE JOKES FROM LIKE THE FIFTH GRADE HOW THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT STILL WINNING FUCKING AWARDS LITERALLY BAZINGA MY FUCKING ASSHOLE
fairycrowns may have helped write this post.
I keep trying to tell people about how awful that show is and how offended it makes me, and they keep being surprised. :/
