Why The Casey Affleck Sexual Harassment Allegations Just Won’t Stick
Huffington Post - about 1 year
By Allie Jones Casey Affleck, the 41-year-old younger brother of Ben, is predicted to win an Oscar for his starring role in Kenneth Lonergan’s New England family drama Manchester by the Sea. He posed for the cover of Variety in October, offered himself up for a New York Times profile earlier this month, and appeared on CBS Sunday Morning this weekend to push the narrative that has coalesced around his campaign: He is Boston’s humble, overlooked kid brother who deserves to finally get some recognition for his talent. In each interview, Affleck has insisted that he doesn’t want fame, and that he is hesitant to put himself back in the spotlight after his last Oscars go-round, in 2007, when he was nominated in the supporting-actor category for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. In the Times profile, titled “Casey Affleck Is Making Another Splash, Reluctantly,” Affleck declared, “I have no desire to be famous at all.” Notwithstanding this display of modesty, A...

LATimes - over 1 year
Jesse James Romero, a 14-year-old Latino, was fatally shot by a Los Angeles Police officer Tuesday in the 2200 block of East Cesar Chavez Avenue in Boyle Heights, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. About 5:35 p.m., gang officers assigned to the Hollenbeck Division received a call of two vandalism suspects involved in possible “gang writings” and narcotics activity near East Cesar Chavez Avenue and North Chicago Street, said LAPD Deputy Chief Robert Arcos. The suspects were described as being between 14 and 16 years old, and when officers arrived, one of the youths ran east on Cesar Chavez then south onto North Breed Street. “According to a witness, they saw the subject running from the officers. The witness saw the subject shoot a handgun in the direction of the pursuing officers,” Arcos told reporters. As officers approached Breed Street and Cesar Chavez, they heard a gunshot, he said. When they arrived at the corner, one of the officers fired at the boy, killing...

Talking With Tarantino: The Sight and Sound Excerpt
Huffington Post - about 2 years
The new Sight & Sound features my ten-page interview with its February cover star, Quentin Tarantino, and they have graciously allowed me to excerpt a portion of the extensive Q&A here. This is a nice chunk of it, but there's so much more in the magazine, from getting to know his characters, to the Roadshow appeal of The Hateful Eight and themes in the movie, to movie violence, to Leonardo DiCaprio's character in Django, to shooting on Ultra Panavision, to his own theater in Los Angeles, The New Beverly (shout out to Clu Gulager in the issue), to his love of old film prints, to interesting thoughts and facts about his past movies, and much, much more. Dig in and read it all via the magazine. For now, check out these choice moments from the interview. "There was a whole lot of speculation from some people about this whole 70mm thing, as in, that's really great, but it's just this set-bound parlor piece, so isn't it just a big old fucking waste of time and money? And, I th...

Omnifilm Entertainment and One World Studios Bring Thrilling Award-winning Docu-series "Ice Pilots" to the Digital World
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Ice Pilots - The McBryan clan of Buffalo Airways From da Vinci's flying machines, and the Wright brothers first flight, to Capt. Chuck Yeager flying faster than sound, and Neil Armstrong on Apollo 11's first human lunar landing, aviators have been celebrated as movie stars for their bravado and chutzpah. Now comes a thrilling docu-series of Northern derring-do, following a group of homespun people and their fleet of vintage WW II prop aircraft, and going where they go -- battling ice storms and extraordinarily flying through minus 50 degree Celsius weather, or overcoming forest fires while transporting both cargo and passengers. Welcome to Joe McBryan's family and his intrepid Buffalo Airways team from Ice Pilots, an award-winning reality series shot in Canada's Northwest Territories.

Educating for Democracy: Something of Value
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Educating for Democracy: Something of value The recent series of shootings on college campuses reminded me of how fragile our "civilization" really is, hanging by a thread of "normalcy" when, as I've written before: "Crazy is the new normal." The young man responsible for the massacre in Oregon used a legally purchased arsenal of guns powerful enough to have decimated the entire population of Roseburg. To most people his homicidal behavior might seem the rare reaction of the many young people who are disillusioned with a future that seems to be without promise. At the same time, on a much larger scale, thousands of young jihadists -- some of them Americans and Western Europeans -- who feel they are in a similar state of aspirational limbo are being provided with much more firepower and are wreaking havoc on innocent victims, the random casualties of a nihilism that seems to have become more obvious: if the young cannot live the life they've dreamed of in a consumptive society,...

Sandra Bullock: the pain of Gravity
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
It was a huge technological leap into the unknown – and a physical and psychological challenge for stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Here, she and director Alfonso Cuarón talk about how they made Gravity an Oscar favourite The makers of Gravity won't really come back down to Earth till the awards season is over, but even if the movie doesn't win any Baftas or Academy Awards, there is a sense of triumph in their simply having got the film made. They can also console themselves with the wall-to-wall acclaim and the $700m-odd in worldwide box office, but it's inarguable that, more than any other movie of the past year, Alfonso Cuarón's space epic pushed back the frontiers of film-making – to the extent that most viewers couldn't fathom how on earth (or elsewhere) the film was even made. What is easy to forget is that, initially, Cuarón and his team didn't have the slightest idea how to make it either. Compared with your standard movie project, Gravity was more like trying to la...

Heloise Imagined Herself Naked: the Sexy Scholar at Christian College
Huffington Post - about 4 years
For most of my sophomore year at the Baptists' Cedarville College, I chased Heloise, a smart, tall philosophy major with blonde hair in tight curls: the Sexy Scholar. Consider the New-Testament archetypes for evangelical women, the resurrected Lazarus' two sisters: Mary, lavishing expensive perfume on Jesus' feet in intimate worship; Martha, toiling behind the scenes, setting tables, baking cookies, that sort of thing. Heloise was a Martha -- an intellectual worker-bee versus the She-Mystic prayer-warrior Marys all around us. Marjory, my previous crush, for example, heard God audibly tell her to break up with my friend, Mick. Heloise, on the other hand, searched for God in what the church and scholars had been saying about God for centuries. The Apostle Paul and some ancient Greek philosophers had led me to Calvinism, a 16th-century theological system that offered rational coherence and an honest grappling with the Book of Romans' teaching on predestination I thought the Baptists di...

The Great Comic Creator Mixtape Volume II
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Last year, I asked some of my favorite comic creators in the industry what they enjoyed listening to while they made comics. To me it was a cool, introspective look into what can help or inspire their creative process. You can take a look at last years Comic Creator Mixtape here. We're back with a whole new batch of creators and awesome playlists that you should check out, and maybe it will inspire you to create something as well! Ryan Stegman just concluded his great run on Superior Spider-Man and will soon be the regular artist on Wolverine. Image Courtesy of Marvel Comics Ryan Stegman Here goes: I guess when I'm choosing music to listen to while working it depends on a lot of factors. Like if it's first thing in the morning I'll usually go for something heavy and driving to wake me up. Like Fucked Up. And then when I'm good and lathered up (gross) I listen to a lot of hip hop. I guess it changes a lot too. I am always worried that I'm going to end up like my dad ...
