Hey filmfuckers, did you know?
This is probably old news to the many Lana Del Rey fans on my blr, but I feel the need to acknowledge this awesomeness anyway. If you didn’t know already, the sultry singing starlet will be featured in Disney’s upcoming film Maleficent, covering “Once Upon a Dream” from the original animated Sleeping Beauty (1959) we all know and love. The song was originally performed by Mary Costa, who provided the operatic voice of Princess Aurora.
Apparently Angelina Jolie, who stars as the titular character, suggested LDR for the job. You can listen to it here if you haven’t yet!
Feel free to discuss:
Are your prospects for the movie now higher knowing that such an awesome artist contributes to the mood with her music?
How stoked are you that Lana is finally getting widespread recognition through her soundtrack work?
Don’t worry about getting off topic as I’ve gotten a couple other asks and also a reply about the same thing so I’ll just answer it anyhow. This is the one token time I guess I get to post an /actual/ personal post. ;)
To begin with, I’m nulliparous (never given birth) and I already can’t handle passing small clots. To top it off like I said, I can’t stand pain. The part of the insertion where the IUD was put in was just a unique kind of uncomfortable, kind of like your run-of-the-mill pap test. What really fucking hurt was the tool that the doctor used to manipulate my cervix, which was like pincers, but it only lasted about 10-15 seconds. If you have no complications afterward and along the way, it will be WELL worth it.
Being that it’s so sensitive, I guess you could say my uterine nerves were traumatized. I started getting very severe cramps, and also had difficulty breathing, started sweating and eventually I did puke after which it all started to calm down. But I have done reading and this is not always a typical experience… this episode thankfully only lasted about an hour, and I have not had any similar problems since. I’ve been told it takes the body about a half a year to adjust to it, since it is a foreign object that shouldn’t be there in the first place. If you react badly to it, it is only your body’s way of determining whether it will accept it or not (hopefully, as expulsion from the uterus can be hectic to deal with).
You say you’re getting a Mirena or a Paragard. I live in Canada, and mine is a French brand called Liberté, which is not approved for use in the US, but what I do know is that those two brands (specifically the Mirena) have been known to cause complications for many women. So my advice is to talk to your OBGYN or your GP to find out what’s best for you. I think insight into your menstrual and/or general health history can really help a doctor determine the best course of action and also to avoid any problems you may run into so don’t back down when you have a consultation.
Also be aware of the contraindictions of whatever IUD you think you might use - for instance make sure you’re not allergic to copper if you want to go for the copper IUD, and don’t go for a hormonal one if you can’t take hormones. That sort of thing. Join an IUD community of some sort for more accurate testimonials. There’s a good one called IUD Divas that’s run on Livejournal and I encourage you to check it out.
Always happy to help a fellow tumblr user. :)
I have zero pain tolerance. God help me if I ever have the courage to birth kids. So, I got an IUD. If you don’t know what that is, I’ll just describe it as a VERY painful procedure for women. And let’s just say this scene was pretty much re-enacted on the way home, minus the blood and guts.
Spoiler: Unfortunately my mother wasn’t quite as consoling as Mr. White. The fact that I puked all over the car didn’t help. :x
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Today Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill is 10 years old. How the time flies, right?
Time for Kill Bill 3 where Nikkia comes back to get revenge on Beatrix.
I’ve been waiting for some word on that, if they are gonna do it or not cuz he talked about doin it.
It’s been talked about for a while, and I think Quentin was in a rush to get it developed and casted because he worried about the actors aging as more time passed. The latest development I read in 2012, and I believe it’s that Kill Bill 3 has been shelved and subsequently will not be happening :(
Hey filmfuckers, did you know?
At first, Terrence Howard turned down the lead role of DJay in Hustle and Flow, stating that he didn’t want to play an archetypal black pimp. Upon reading the treatment and realizing that the character was dynamic, he changed his mind. Prior to production, Terrence also lived in Memphis to obtain a strong accent, and he also interviewed prostitutes and pimps over a period of two years to get an idea of their struggles and lifestyles.
For those who have been wondering where the promised queue posts are, don’t worry. I haven’t up and left tumblr. A few weeks ago I scanned my laptop with Malwarebytes, and found about 500 virus files, some of which were in my C: drive and ended up damaging components of Windows. After attempting a hidden partition which failed to reinstall the OS, it was decided my computer had been fried and needed to be sent in to Best Buy to be fixed. At the moment, I have to share an ancient, lagging machine running XP with my mother, who is a full-time student as well as my two brothers who will sit glued to anything with a blaring screen for hours on end. Long story short, there won’t be much, if anything going on until my laptop is fixed.
I haven’t forgotten about filmfuck, just falling on some hard times. :) I hope my loyal followers understand the need for this extended hiatus.
Hey filmfuckers, did you know?
Mystic Pizza is more than just a late-80’s coming-of-age movie. It’s a real pizza parlour located in the same town where the story takes place in Mystic, Connecticut. After the movie was released, the place became so frequented that the lineups would be out the door and down the sidewalk, and some even stole items from Mystic Pizza to keep as movie memorabilia.
I’ve been working my ass off like Django the slave for the past couple of weeks. Hard. I’m neglecting pretty much everything having to do with the internet, thus not much is being posted. When I do have spare time, I dedicate that time to reading books, working, sleeping, and (you guessed it) working. September’s always a hard month; there’s always lots to do. I’ve also gotten back into painting after about a 3 year hiatus from the art world which I like to call an artist’s block. Heh, you know, what writer’s block is to writers, artist’s block is to…yeah. I still suck though, no matter how eloquent I make that whole thing sound.
Having to do a handful of specific custom gif requests and then tallying up totals of 25-30-and-some-odd non-specific ones is time consuming. To those of you constantly in the ask box bugging me about the fact that you made a request back in June and it’s still not done, believe me, I’m more than aware. Sadly my life doesn’t revolve around this little microblogging website. It’s time I don’t have right now. It’s time I have to spend doing more important things which override my might-as-well-be-non-existent tumblr priorities, so I hope you all understand. I’ll get to it when I can, but as of late it’s just not at the surface of my conscience right now.
TL;DR: I have a life that needs to be lived as well. Please remember this next time you want to bag on me because I didn’t get a specific movie post/gif done for you.
The good news is you can look forward to the regular movie posts for the next couple of weeks which will be placed in the queue.
I still love you all.
