Wow! I'm really impressed with how the writer fleshed out that little sidenote of history into this short. That was creepy, charming, sad, and cute all at the same time.

Also wanna mention how awesome the music was, really fit the vibe.

Rae Sremmurd get me hype too, no shame!

While I like the idea, I will say that I don't think hubski is the best forum for it. I use /r/depression to vent and to support others, but I don't know if it is actually productive. It is similar to me sharing a page of my diary or reading someone else's and encouraging them.

I don't know if hubski's smaller community and focus on discussion is the best place, since most of the time I'm on /r/depression it's not to discuss but to vent and hear about other people who feel similar. Either way, might as well go for it! Although would it just be one #mentalhealth tag? or would you eventually want to use more specific tags?

The Brave Little Abacus rule! This one's my fav album

shappyrohman  ·  1632 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Favourite band no one has heard of?

One of my favorite bands that isn't too well-known is Old Gray, a screamo from NH

I also love Knocked Loose, a beatdown group from Kentucky

And finally, no one I know seems to know Christine & the Queens a French synthpop group!

I have a bunch more since I self-identify as a cough hipster, but I'll just stick w three :D

that was my reaction when he told me his idea. I was like, "who the hell wants to bother filming something like that?" It turned out better than I thought it would though haha

Metal? Mashup? Manic? We'll think of something

haha this reminds me of the movie Mommy. 2 of the protagonists speak with really heavy accents with a lot of Joual. Tabernak!

Gotta love Mischief Brew :D

And I totally agree, every day is a good day for #punk. I listen to a lot of different genres so I just needed a way for me to pick one for every day, and alliteration was the easiest ;)

ah you're a saint! Thanks

I love the idea of a #weeklydj thing! I just wanted to try out the whole music@me thing and didn't wanna put it int he normal music tag since this is less accessible. I looked at some old posts there and the only thing that would stop me from doing something like that is I have no clue how formatting woks on this site, besides Italics. I can't bold, hashtag, link words, etc. lol

shappyrohman  ·  1638 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski Movie Club - Voting Thread #15

Word on the street is that Mathieu Kassovits (le Director) wants to remake La Haine in modern times. I think it would be really interesting given the recent CHarlie Hebdo incident in Paris and could even find success in the US with our own racial tensions exploding the past year or so.

Although, I don't know if La Haine qualifies as indie, per se. It was distributed by Canal+, the biggest film distributor in France, and had a budget of 2.5 million Euro, although it does look low-budget so props to the cinematographer there. Then again I might just be a little pedantic with what qualifies as indie as well :/

Just knock down a building or two, then they'll need you for sure!

but for real that sucks, sorry to hear it

Definite props to the acting in Royal Tenenbaums. Probably the only time Luke Wilson will every make me cry lol

I think there is something to be said about vibing with a filmmaker, or any artist really. Once you find someone who seems to get you and make movies or art that just seems made for you it's unlike anything else. I'm glad you love Wes Anderson so much, and it seems like you are aware of why you like him too, which I think is putting in more thought than the average person (god I sound like a douche) as to why they like an artist.

For me it'd be Lars von Trier. No matter how much people hate on him I can't help but love everything he does, so I guess he is my Wes Anderson!

shappyrohman  ·  1638 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Anyone familiar with the website Letterboxd?

I just created my own today, but I think it will take a lot of time to flesh out my profile. I've seen so many movies and regularly watch a lot too, so it'll be difficult to fill out my film diary, but I'll take it little by little I guess. I don't want to review too many movies too fast or else I'll just speed through it

I totally respect Wes for his auteurism and adherence to style. He was heavily inspired by French new wavers who did similar things, and I am definitely impressed with his ability to maintain that throughout a whole film. It still irks me, though, and honestly it's the fan club that gets me so worked up haha oh well :)

And Rushmore* is on my list of movies to watch but I think it's fair to say his output for the past 15 years is vastly different, aesthetically, from Bottle Rocket or Rushmore

#movieclub for French movies would be my dream come true! Do you speak French? I'm asking because of your comment about how Amélie's dialogue translates into English

I just made a letterboxd thanks to Zurangatang's suggestion, so consider yourself followed :D

And yea I am 100% in agreement with you and your fiancée about film students and "best directors" lol

This comment makes me so happy haha finally someone who understands me!!!! Especially that last part, it's almost patronizing to highlight the in-your-face style of Wes
