#NoMoreTerry is a boycott/social media campaign aimed at the publications, brands, and celebrities that hire long-time sexual predator Terry Richardson to take pictures for them. It’s goal is to pressure companies into refusing to hire him.
I think what astounds me most is how valuable it’s been to simply have someone say “You have permission to feel this way”.
So much of depression is entrenched guilt for not feeling better. For feeling things that cause others discomfort, that require they pay you some kind of customized attention rather than the default.
My therapist wants me to feel better. Of course she does. She’s a good, compassionate person, and her Yelp reviews would probably be pretty lousy if things were otherwise. But for some reason, when she asks me about my feelings, I don’t perceive the unsaid “if you talk about it you’ll feel better, then we can all feel better” conclusion that I infer from most other interactions with the human race.
She looks at the clock, and she says “you have me, and my office, for 43 more minutes.” There’s no goal, no battle. So I put words to all of it. I give it all a name.The things that seem ugly or embarrassing or whiny, or things that, if I told my peers, they’d over-reverence on my behalf with well-meaning, bruising concern. The things that would break my mom’s heart, and for which she’d take mine to pieces in retaliation.
I say everything, and when I’m finished we still have time. It’s all there, in piles, exposed to the air and thoroughly seen. And there isn’t a protest, there isn’t a rebuttal. There isn’t confusion or regret or apologies or demands or aggressive proactivity or violent efforts to help. There’s just me, and air and quiet, and ten minutes left that are just for me.

Guilermo Del Toro - How Pacific Rim saved his life
“I wanted to show that men and women can be friends without having a relationship,” says del Toro of the relationship between the two main characters Mako (played by Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi) and Raleigh (“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam). “Theirs is a story about partnership, equality and a strong bond between partners. It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.”
Nice article, worth a read. (via nudityandnerdery)
OH FUCK YES
This movie is a lot more than just robots punching monsters.
Between Pacific Rim and Disney’s Frozen, it’s refreshing to see action stories with female leads that don’t all come down to getting that climactic kiss from the dude.
A creative industry shouldn’t be led by its own least common denominator of taste
"When one’s energy for discovery and appreciation — or creation — is funneled into too small a receptacle, it turns sour."
More on this wise old man’s truth bomb, and how fandom can be its own worst enemy.
