“If you get the passion to do it and you do it and it doesn’t work out, I worked for three years on a 16mm film that ended becoming nothing but guitar picks. I was very disappointed when I realized it wasn’t any good, but it was my film school and I actually got away really cheap. When it was all over, I knew how to make a movie. I didn’t want to show anybody that but I had the experience.” —Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino: Hollywood’s Boy Wonder takes you into the world of the filmmaker who went from working at a video rental store to becoming a Sundance favorite with Reservoir Dogs and then a Palme d’Or winner with Pulp Fiction. The documentary is comprised by telling interviews with Terry Gilliam, Samuel L. Jackson, and others, though much of the screen time is spent with Quentin Tarantino himself, who shares his thoughts on his past, his then early film career, and his approach to filmmaking. An important lesson to take from the documentary is that success does not happen overnight. From his first attempt at film with My Best Friend’s Birthday to Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino struggled to get his film career started. When speaking of Hollywood, he says, “in this town you can die of encouragement,” and explains how for 3 years, he was always two weeks away from having a budget. As the documentary shows, even when an additional 2 years passed by, Tarantino kept working at it, which is the crucial lesson to take from his film career… Good filmmaking is Passion, Patience, and Perseverance. —A-BitterSweet-Life

Shout out to Al Jazeera straight up showing a video of their reporters getting tear gassed during a live interview of the Ferguson police chief denying that they are tear gassing journalists.

Some of the most striking, war zone-like, almost hellish looking images from the ongoing peaceful protests in Ferguson, Missouri over the murder of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

Here’s a list of some of the people working in the Ferguson Police Department with pictures along with their work numbers and emails which I’ll list below.

tjackson@fergusoncity.com

dmcbride@fergusoncity.com
ddecarli@fergusoncity.com
rnabzdyk@fergusoncity.com
tzoll@fergusoncity.com

PD email is police@fergusoncity.com

Please reblog.

The fact that not all of them have pictures is a give away for how messy this police department is.

THE “DRIVEN TO BARK” CAMPAIGN 

Petplan has started the 'Driven to Bark' campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of leaving dogs in hot cars. There is also a White House petition which encourages the passing of laws to address this issue. Unfortunately we hear reports every summer about dogs being left inside hot cars. Click here to learn more about the Driven to Bark campaign. Please share!
