“Ben Affleck postponed directing a film in order to work with David Fincher. “He’s the only director I’ve met who can do everybody else’s job better than they could,” states Affleck. On set one day, Affleck changed the lens setting on a camera an almost indiscernible amount, betting a crew member that Fincher wouldn’t notice. “But goddammit if he didn’t say, ‘Why does the camera look a little dim?’””

A detail in David Fincher’s The Social Network many have missed happens right after Mark Zuckerberg tells Eduardo Saverin about his idea for what will eventually become Facebook. Eduardo tells Mark he has been punched by the Phoenix, a final club at Harvard Mark desperately wanted to be a member of. Eduardo senses the awkward and tense air and  comments that it was probably due to “a diversity thing”, which Mark dejectedly agrees with. As Eduardo goes back inside, he passes through a door specifically marked “PRIVATE ENTRANCE”, a huge signifier of the dissolution of their friendship to come, due to the jealously Mark feels as Eduardo becomes wrapped up in the exclusivity of the final club that doesn’t give Mark the time of day. Zuckerberg is left alone nursing his wounds while Eduardo heads back in without much of a second thought, and we already see a crack in the mold.

"I have been photographing in Gaza for several years, initially to cover the conflict with Israel, but over time returning because I am mesmerized by the women, and their strength," says photojournalist Monique Jacques.

These photos are stunning!

Almost a thousand people in West Africa die from ebola and nobody bats an eyelash, yet 2 white people in the US contract it and miraculously a cure is released and given to them because they’re an “extreme circumstance.” Satire is dead and real life is a dystopian hellscape

It realy bothers me when blogs about Mexican culture like to put up pictures of Mexican ‘beauties’ but more than half the time they are white looking Latinas.

did you know that Mexico is

So you’re basically saying only Mexican women who have white features are worthy of being called beautiful and of representation.

What has been the wildest fan experience you’ve had so far? I had quite a good one recently. I had to have a root canal done and I was in the chair, and I’m really scared of dentists, and I was there and they put the bleach in to clean the roots of my teeth. I had a clamp in my jaw and those plastic curtain things in my mouth. (x)

Happy 45th Birthday, Matthew Perry! (August, the 19th)

Let’s talk about Rust’s achingly well-fitting detective attire. All of the other detectives wore schlubby suits and shirts, but not Cohle—at least, not in the ’90s timeline.

Cohle was such a complex character, and yet I knew he’d be so simple in the way that he dressed. It was all about utilitarianism for him. That’s what made him comfortable. We certainly didn’t want to dress him toward a particular fashion. In the mid-’90s, men were wearing pleated pants. Suits were boxy and squared out. That was nothing that Rust was going to be interested in. He was going to want to go to one store and pick up one of each item of clothing and wear them all indefinitely. But just to be frank? It’s Matthew McConaughey. He’s sexy. There was going to have to be some sex appeal there. - Jenny Eagan, True Detective costume designer (x)
