Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit unnatural?

Dude, I don’t know if anybody told you, but we have this little thing called physics.
I had to reblog this again…
100 behind-the-scenes photos that span the entire production of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’ Great job, Larry Wright!
“European filmmakers, including George Sluizer (director of ‘Spoorloos,’ aka ‘The Vanishing’ and ‘Utz’), Peter Delpeut (‘Felice… Felice…’) and Harry Kümel (‘Daughters of Darkness,’ ‘Malpertuis’) discuss the films and famously obsessive work practices of Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick thought Sluizer’s ‘The Vanishing’ the most terrifying film he had seen—even more frightening than ‘The Shining,’ and it led to Kubrick ‘phoning the Dutch filmmaker to discuss editing. There is also an interview with Johanna ter Steege, who was set to star in Kubrick’s so-called ‘lost Holocaust’ movie ‘The Aryan Papers,’ which was dropped after Steven Spielberg made ‘Schindler’s List.’ It ends with (who else?) Malcolm McDowell in performance, recounting a tale of working with Kubrick.” —Paul Gallagher, Dangerous Minds

Kathryn Bigelow, director of The Hurt Locker, is the only woman EVER to win a Best Director Oscar. Only 4 women have ever been nominated. Women made up only 6% of Directors for the top movies of 2013. There were NO female nominees for directing, cinematography, film editing, writing (original screenplay), or music (original score) during last year’s Academy Awards.
