This is so relevant for me right now, you don’t even know.

Don’t write about people doing cool stuff. Only do cool stuff that people want to write about.
This is A+ advice.

The Inside Story of The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail | Splitsider
“I’ve always been fascinated with the moment people go from being a just a group in a room to one unit —
Splitsider did a piece about #TheMeltdown with Jonah and Kumail in celebration of our show premiering tomorrow!
#THEMELTDOWN with Jonah and Kumail has a TUMBLR!
Read this Splitsider interview with Emily V. Gordon about how the show got going. it’s the most comprehensive one so far!
I love these guys and it feels (having caught on to them relatively early on in their careers) like seeing old high school friends making it big. And they did so with a badass show.

a brief lesson in failure
Hmmm. Looks a LOT more like a lesson about The Golden Rule.

“[…]If Snowpiercer had merely told the tale of an oppressed working class rising up to seize power from an evil overlord, it would already have been an improvement over most of the political messages in mainstream cinema. There are all sorts of nice touches in its portrayal of a declining capitalism that can maintain its ideological legitimacy even when it literally has no more bullets in its guns.
But the story Bong tells goes beyond that. It’s about the limitations of a revolution which merely takes over the existing social machinery rather than attempting to transcend it. And it’s all the more effective because the heart of that critique comes as a late surprise, from a character we might not expect.
[…]All too often, explicitly political art fails as both art and politics. Socialists shouldn’t put up with half-assed imitations of popular genres, nor with political messages denuded of anything but the lowest common denominator.
What makes Snowpiercer satisfying is that it commits neither error. It’s an engrossing and stylish movie, and its underlying themes go beyond merely pointing out class exploitation to challenge the logic of capital. It’s a movie that should be seen as widely as possible, if only so that Bong Joon-ho gets more chances to make movies for English-speaking audiences that badly need them.”
