Ugh this quarter, I’m just dying of exhaustion

“The important question concerning Hollywood’s imbalance is not whether good things are happening — they are — but whether each advancement inspires the developmental change necessary to make the numbers reflect the financial and creative strides being made in the industry. In 2014, people talk about the imbalance — but it will only matter if the powers that be start listening to the ever-rising voices of discontent.”

A look at the ongoing evolution of women-centric film in culture and Hollywood

But some things haven’t changed. This week, Writers Guild of America West released employment numbers that show that the share of female writers working in film has actually decreased since 2009, reaching a dismal 15 percent. According to the annual Celluloid Ceiling Report, it’s even worse for female directors. It was already bad in 2008, when women made up only 9 percent of directors — a number that hadn’t improved in 10 years. But unbelievably, the 2013 numbers reveal that the percentage has dropped even more, to an abysmal 6 percent. This is on top of the decrease in the number of female characters and equally balanced male/female casts, and Hollywood’s ongoing four percent problem.

male “intellectuals” in their early to mid 20s who feel strongly about absolutely nothing but will argue about serious issues like misogyny and racism just to add another “I Win” notch on their belt of arguments are the most pretentious, vapid, soulless pieces of shit i have ever seen.

“When did we become a country where the millionaires are jealous of the people on food stamps? A country that thinks teachers and fire fighters are soaking us dry? A country that thinks the richest who are paying the lowest taxes in 80 years are the ones being beaten up?”

Cesar Santos

His art has been exhibited worldwide, and his talent is acknowledged by countless international prizes. Cuban-American artist Cesar Santos astonishes art lovers all over the world with his breathtaking, flawless and beauty-filled paintings. Born in 1982, Santos studied at Miami Dade College and the New World School of Arts. In Italy he continued to develop his talent at the Fundemental Program in Drawing and Painting, in which he participated under Michael John Angel.

With his paintings, Santos proves that beauty is timeless. Influenced by the Renaissance, masters of the nineteenth century and Modernism, his works reflect both classical and modern interpretations. In many of his art, a refined painting technique comes together with colourful & at times abstract contemporary fragments. And the results are amazing: men, women, and icons such as The Girl with a Pearl Earring and Mona Lisa’s niece become personages of today while keeping their original, classical charm.
