Jack Nicholson’s character had to be crazy and angry all the time. And in my character I had to cry 12 hours a day, all day long, the last nine months straight, five or six days a week. I was there a year and a month, and there must be something to Primal Scream therapy, because after the day was over and I’d cried for my 12 hours … After all that work, hardly anyone even criticized my performance in it, even to mention it, it seemed like. The reviews were all about Kubrick, like I wasn’t there.” - Shelly Duvall, December 1980</p></blockquote> <p>To give a little more perspective on just how horrific this film was, I need to give people some information:</p> <p>Since retiring from acting in 2002, Shelley Duvall has lived a reclusive and isolated life. However, in November of 2016, <i><b>USA Today</b></i> reported that she appeared to be suffering from mental illness. And then later that month, to an incredible amount of hype, Shelley appeared on the <i><b>Dr. Phil</b></i> show where she basically looked unrecognisable, seemed delusional and talked about people trying to kill her. The episode basically confirmed there rumours.<br/></p> <p>You can find videos/clips of the interview on youtube, however I won’t link it because it’s upsetting and disrespectful.</p> <p>After the interview aired, Vivian Kubrick, daughter of <i><b>The Shining</b></i> director Stanley Kubrick, described the interview as “exploitative entertainment” and “appallingly cruel”. The show then received a lot of backlash (rightly so) and a number of other chat shows started discussing it (again, there’s some videos of these on youtube)</p> <p>Now, how does this all connect to <b>The Shining, </b>you ask? To quote Wikipedia:</p> <p>“Jack Nicholson states in the documentary <i><b>Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures</b></i>, that Kubrick was great to work with but that he was “<i>a different director</i>” with Duvall. Because of Kubrick’s methodical nature, principal photography took a <i>year</i> to complete. Kubrick and Duvall <i>argued frequently</i>, although Duvall later said she learned more from working with Kubrick on <i>The Shining</i> than she did on all her earlier films. In order to give <i>The Shining</i> the psychological horror it needed, director Stanley Kubrick <i>antagonised his actors.</i> The film’s script was changed so often that Nicholson stopped reading each draft. Kubrick <i><b>intentionally isolated Duvall and argued with her often.</b></i> Duvall was <i><b>forced to perform the iconic and exhausting baseball bat scene 127 times</b></i>. Afterwards, Duvall presented Kubrick with <i><b>clumps of hair that had fallen out due to the extreme stress of filming</b></i>.”</p> <p>One year of solid filming. She had to cry, panic and be scared for 12 hours a day, seven days a week, nine months straight. She was isolated and antagonised by the director. She had to perform the baseball bat scene 127 times in a row (that’s her crying and screaming, and Jack Nicholson being hit) And to top it all of, Jack and Kubrick get all the attention while she gets ignored?</p> <p>From my own personal experience of mental illness, being exposed to feelings of fear and distress for prolonged periods of time can cause the brain to learn and expect it. I’m not saying that filming <i>The Shining</i> caused Shelley Duvall to develop mental illness, I am <i><b>stating</b></i> that whether the movie brought out an existing condition, or prepared the bed for something to eventually develop, filming <i>The Shining</i> has a direct correlation with Shelley Duvall suffering from mental illness.</p> <p>Next time you watch the movie, bare that in mind. It’s much sadder.</p> <p><i>Side note: Three years prior to filming, her partner of two years, Paul Simon, walked off with her friend <b>Carrie Fisher</b>, after she introduced the two. So there’s that too.</i></p> </blockquote> <p>Far too many directors love/loved tormenting their lead actresses. Hitchcock, Lars von Trier, David O. Russell, Bertolucci, Abdellatif Kechiche, and many more. What’s especially insulting to Duvall is that not only was she subjected to this treatment, but her performance has been largely unappreciated and even often ridiculed. </p> </blockquote> <p>This is why any time people say what a ~masterpiece~ the shining is I have to roll my eyes. It’s especially frustrating when the convo is “lol yeah kubrik was the worst, but made a really good movie.” No, kubrik was awful, it’s awful and it’s shameful to celebrate that, period.</p> </blockquote> <p>(Not so) Fun fact: Stanley Kubrick was a far-right social darwinist who considered democracy “a noble failure”. It shows.</p> </blockquote> <p>Another fun fact: Stephen King HATES Kubrick’s The Shining because of how it portrayed Shelley’s character. He has said that Kubrick’s version made her into a sexist stereotype and not at all like the woman he wrote in his novel.</p> </blockquote> <p style="">God that’s awful.</p> <p>And you know, maybe people didn’t like her performance because she just looked like a wreck constantly, so Kubrick’s “method acting” actually made it worse. <br/></p> </blockquote> <p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>And you somehow have the fucking idiocy to be an anti-feminist?</p> </blockquote> <p>My dude, this has fuck all to do with feminism. Especially third wave feminism.</p> </blockquote> <p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>It has literally everything to do with feminism. Patriarchal society let Kubrick get away with it because he was a Genius™ and turned Shelley Duvall into a punchline.</p> </blockquote> <p>Female actors aren’t the only people who have awful experiences. Male actors have been abused as well and been documented many of times.(<a href="http://madamenoire.com/492931/men-who-were-sexually-assaulted/">x</a>)(<a href="https://screenrant.com/times-actors-were-completely-abused-on-movie-sets/">x</a>) Actors in general has had a history of abuse with their directors, from horrible treatments to sexual abuse for both male and female. Kubrick has abused his male actors too, but of course didn’t know that in our patriarchal society no didn’t you. This has nothing to do with feminism but directors being dicks to their actors for their personal gain or for their art. Get over yourself.</p></blockquote> <p>Directors being cruel megalomaniacs with a God complex is nothing new and certainly not exclusive to female actresses.</p><p>Also</p><p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>Saying everything like this</p><p>doesn’t make your point any stronger <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mWk_Fago5SyKpyXk-KOUmbw">@an-average-sized-person</a> </p>

Mike Machaud controls all of Channel Awesome as pretty much the head honcho. Even in the document almost everything is pointed squarely at his unprofessional feet, which is hilarious because something tells me Doug has been secretly saying how incompetent he is in every video where he plays a clueless suit in a skit.</p></blockquote> <p>Wrong. </p><p><b>Michaud also owns the IP rights to the Nostalgia Citric. Doug and Rob just write for the character. </b></p></blockquote> <p>Doug doesn’t get a complete pass though since he’s the one who basically handed over the company to Michaud and by several accounts he and Rob are kind of dicks too.</p><p><br/></p><p>But it’s also worth noting that a lot of the people who “worked” for Channel Awesome were not contracted or guaranteed pay outside of ad revenue. They were mostly just associating their channels with the Channel Awesome club in hopes of getting more exposure.</p>

America, Children, and Dicks: We at DICK'S Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country. We have heard you. The nation has heard you We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. But we have to help solve the problem that's in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that's taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America - our kids Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been. Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens We believe it's time to do something about it Beginning today, DICK'S Sporting Goods is committed to the following We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICK'S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field & Stream stores We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age We no longer sell high capacity magazines We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly . At the same time, we implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations: Ban assault-style firearms Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21 Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks .Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks We hope others join us in this effort to let our kids know that their pleas are being taken serioushy Some will say these steps can't guarantee tragedies like Parkland will never happen again They may be correct- but if common sense reform is enacted and even one life is saved, it will have been worth it We deeply believe that this country's most precious gift is our children. They are our future. We must keep them safe DICK S Dick’s Sporting Goods made an announcement this morning stating that they will stop selling “assault-style” rifles and will be raising the age limit to 21 to buy firearms...thoughts? 🤔 WSHH
