kalinda gets the event. kalinda got to walk into the courtroom with the gun still clicking, kalinda gets the blood on the floor and the immediacy and the knowledge. kalinda, in her grief, pursues that knowledge. looks both corpse and perp in the face. kalinda gets the record and the details of the picture. kalinda gets to have been there.

diane gets the man. diane’s grief runs deepest, diane lost the most, diane gets ownership: “i loved him. my best friend is dead.” diane gets the legacy of will gardner on her shoulders, his thirst for power and his pettiness and hotheadedness, and gets to take his best and worst pieces into herself as part of mourning him, as part of loving him.

alicia gets the narrative. but this narrative is not about her—deliberately, precisely constructed to not be about her, happening while she was somewhere else and not picking up her phone. but she is our protagonist, and she has to wander into the empty crime scene, the unswept broken glass and the puddles of blood on the floor and ask for answers. not “what happened?” but “what does this mean to me?” alicia gets the responsibility of the story, and here that means she has to try to inhabit a story that is not hers. that she knows doesn’t belong to her, that she has to make it hers anyway. alicia gets subjectivity. no matter how flawed her separate scripts are, alicia gets to rewrite.

which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing

yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever

That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.

Kathryn Bigelow, director of The Hurt Locker, is the only woman EVER to win a Best Director Oscar. Only 4 women have ever been nominated. Women made up only 6% of Directors for the top movies of 2013. There were NO female nominees for directing, cinematography, film editing, writing (original screenplay), or music (original score) during last year’s Academy Awards.

Compcompcomp, this time for a piece featuring Mary Malone and the Mulefa creating the amber spyglass.  I fell into the trap where you think you know what you want and proceed to beat a failing idea into the ground.  Rescued myself with that last one, even though I’d wanted to show the Mulefa houses and grasslands a bit more.  Now, to actually design poor Mary’s clothing.
