I thought my shitty pothead friends were the only ones who believed that. Last lighter I bought was white (clerks choice) and I have kinda been resenting it. But what kind of neanderthal puts out a burning ember with plastic? Youre just contributing that to your bowl and therefore, your lungs.
Title: Re: Everything twitter
Post by: WorldForgot on March 15, 2018, 05:10:31 PM
It becomes habit if you smoke enough, to shuffle the bowl around/pack tighter with the end of the lighter. Stonerz will smoke dust gladly if it means you scoop up some keef, so i dunno that a lil plastic'z gonna bother anyone committed to the peace pipe.

Out of curiosity, why are you resenting the white lighter? I love when superstitions impose themselves on reality.

Im so far gone I just use my thumb, shows how many fucks I give.


Out of curiosity, why are you resenting the white lighter?

Its just such a default color that brings no personality to my pot smoking as a lime green, yellow, or pink would, but I have been leaving the house lately specifically reminding myself not to bring the white lighter when my luck feels off.. I guess the way superstitions get pummeled into your head makes you think you better heed the warning sometimes when youre feeling vulnerable even if they initially sound stupid.

I love when superstitions impose themselves on reality.

Title: Re: Everything twitter
Post by: Lewton on April 11, 2018, 01:56:16 PM
That's cool. Just for context: he's filming Adam Sandler's upcoming comedy special for Netflix.

I like the way PTA's visual style, in stuff like his first Haim video ("Right Now"), and certain Radiohead ones ("Present Tense," "The Numbers") is just super clean, calm, and crisp. I wonder if he'll adopt the same approach for this new project?

It's like...in that Haim video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1LLWHroWgA), one might think, at first glance, that it's kind of sedate in terms of the look and the camera movement, but those illusions quickly disperse because it just moves so thoughtfully. Everything is so wonderfully precise -- all those lateral movements and the visual layers and the numerous nicely observed or well-timed bits. Lots of energy and humanity in that video.

So, yeah, I'm curious to see this develop through a comedy special. Location constraints make him do some interesting things, and also give him an opportunity to just patiently zero in on one of his favourite things: close-ups. A certain visual modesty becomes its own radical gesture...I think that's partly what PTA's up to with some of these projects, anyway.

I get the sense that PTA has taken a page from Demme's book and decided to just do tons of side projects (non-feature film projects). I don't know too much about Demme's history, but it's possible he did his side projects because he had to in order to pay the bills, or maybe for fun, or both, or other reasons. Listening to PTA's interviews gives me the sense that Paul himself is so enthusiastic about film making, whether feature-length or otherwise, and also aware of his mortality, and thus just wants to enjoy and do all he can while he can, and Demme is a filmmaker that he respects and has shown him it's possible to things that way.

All this is to say that I think PTA enjoys the benefits of being free to call up a friend like Adam and to slip into a fun role like camera operator, all while keeping a fresh perspective on filming, meeting new challenges and situations, and expanding his skill set/continuing to learn.

Maybe, maybe not. Oh, and why film? PTA pretty much only shoots film. If you mean why would Netflix or whoever is putting out the money want to shell out the cash for film, I'm not sure it costs more than digital (can't really say because I don't know), and it's probably pocket change relative to their giant stacks ... so if PTA wants to shoot film, Sure, go ahead.

Quote
Foreword by the Safdie Brothers

A heavily illustrated mid-career monograph exploring the 30-year creative journey of the 8-time Academy Awardnominated writer and director

Paul Thomas Anderson has been described as a true auteur and among the foremost filmmaking talents of his generation. His films have received 25 Academy Award nominations, and he has worked closely with the finest actors of our time, including Daniel Day-Lewis, Joaquin Phoenix, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. In Paul Thomas Anderson: Masterworks, Andersons entire oeuvrefrom Boogie Nights (1997), There Will Be Blood (2007), and The Master (2012) to his music videos for Radiohead to his early short filmsis examined in illustrated detail for the first time.

Andersons influences, his style, and the recurring themes of reinvention, alienation, destiny, and ambition that course through his movies are analyzed and supplemented by firsthand interviews with Andersons closest collaborators and illuminated by film stills, archival photos, original illustrations, and a vibrant, engaging design aesthetic.

Scroll down for a little backstory on this encounter.

Don't you wish we were having this much fun?



https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2020/02/jacqueline-novak-get-on-your-knees (https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2020/02/jacqueline-novak-get-on-your-knees)

Quote
So the blow job was more of a conceptual jumping-off point for Get On Your Knees, a one-woman oral-sex meditation thats part stand-up, part poetic treatise. During an extended run in New York, the critically-acclaimed showexecutive produced by Mike Birbiglia and presented by Natasha Lyonnewas enjoyed by comedian John Mulaney, Oscar-winning actors Sally Field and Emma Stone, Pulitzer Prizewinning playwright Tony Kushner, and pop-culture power couple Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson.

Growing up in high school and college, I just wanted to be Paul Thomas Anderson, said Novak, recalling her most surreal Get On Your Knees celebrity encounter. After the show, Novak was able to spend some time with Rudolph and the filmmaker. I started dropping fanboy tidbits on himIt was the panic of, How am I going to communicate the depth of my fandom to this person without being an asshole?

Her solution involved name-dropping the filmmakers 1993 short Cigarettes & Coffee, referencing some obscure cross-casting between Boogie Nights and the 1980s short The Dirk Diggler Story that preceded it, and mentioning deep trivia involving a script passed to Philip Baker Hall. The filmmaker reciprocated by telling Novak he appreciated her midshow callout to the San Fernando Valley, in which he grew up.

I felt the satisfaction of feeling like I communicated that I wasnt just big fanning him in a broad sense, said Novak. I stand by what I said.

Im sure Im preaching to the choir here but it seems strange to me why the editor of a film magazine wouldnt understand why Nolan is so committed to a theatrical experience. The massive scope and image size is built into Nolans art in a way that it isnt for most other films, including Boogie Nights. I mean, a good movie thats been cropped to 1.33 for television is still a good movie, but its still not the intended way youre supposed to be seeing it.

Movies arent cropped for TV anymore for the most part. However, I think theres a healthy space in between the two extremes. I do think the theatrical
experience is special and we should continue to put resources in it. However, the film does live on through home viewings and what PTA said about watching it on a shitty print is true. I am a big champion of the cinematic experience in theaters, but a global pandemic is not the right time to be pushing that.
Read the room Chris.

PTA and Nolan are going for notably different things when making movies. Dunkirk is a one-of-a-kind brilliant moviegoing experience if you see it in theaters. If youre at home, unless you have a dark private mini theater setup, its simply not the same. Hes after epic-scale visual experiences, and has done enough good for cinema (and brought us enough joy) that we should be supporting his theater insistence. I will be seeing TENET in theaters, and today, will happily be watching PDL on my couch.

Sorry I misunderstood what you meant before; Yes this interview is new. The one you were referencing was a Mission Impossible podcast from last year where he said that him and Paul were like "an old married couple" and they "didn't get on at all" during Inherent Vice and that he doubted if they'd work together again.

I am almost done with the Elswitt podcast and despite this being a podcast after his bad marriage comment regarding PTA he is incredibly complimentary towards PTA through almost half the podcast. Although he doesn't talk about Inherent Vice which seems like when they had their falling out.
