Today I was at a graduation ceremony for a big acting school in Los Angeles and one of the speakers was a producer on Fargo and he was telling stories and one of them was that the cast and crew went bowling once and they had some sort of tournament or something and it ended up being Martin Freeman against Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman beat Billy Bob and when he did he jumped up into the air and screamed “YES I BEAT THAT FUCKER!!” and that was my favorite story of the day

DAN: When you do interviews, you’re faced with the choice to either be the most boring person on earth or just get ridiculous things written about you from time to time
JOSH HOROWITZ: Sometimes it might be good to be boring
DAN: It might be but I just get bored of myself

I snagged this shot of Hasana in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I told the sister it would take us 3 minutes to shoot. I actually got this shot in 2 snaps. We were all excited about how nice it turned out. It’s always easy to grab a good snap when the subject is as fun and stylish as she was. That’s the case with most of the people I’ve captured thus far, all fun & stylish!

Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze is a French photographer born in France. He grew up in Paris suburbs until he moved abroad in 2008. Originally dedicated to visual art, his interest in photography started to prevail after his arrival in Hong Kong. Living in the heart of Kowloon since 2009, he directly felt bond to this place unique for its density and vibrancy. His first attempt of recording his new home took the form of the project Vertical Horizon released in 2012 as a photo book. It has been featured in major publications in UK, France, Spain, USA, China and Hong Kong. The photo book has been then reprinted as a second edition in 2014. Romain is currently working on his newer photography projects focused on Hong Kong and the several aspects of its unmatched urban development.

We know Kamala Khan is popular, but what does a sixth printing really mean?
Kamala Khan has enraptured the world as many times as she’s saved it. Now, the plucky Pakistani-American teen who made history as the new Ms Marvel, comics’ first ever lead Muslim superhero, is getting a rare sixth printing—and heralding a new era of diversity in comics.
Although the world of comics occupies an increasingly large part of the pop cultural domain—last year the industry did about $800 million in sales—the number of people who actually buy comics is relatively small. Most comics only average about 3,000 copies per printing; with Kamala now on her sixth printing, she’s headed towards a whopping 20,000 print copies sold.
Still, to put things in perspective, sixth printings are major milestones in the world of comics. Spider-Man Issue #583, the one with President Obama on the cover, only made it to a fifth printing despite making international headlines. Kamala now joins an elite lineup of bestselling comics that have performed beyond all expectations.
SEE, PUBLISHING WORLD!!
Not only is diversity interesting and cool and fun and healthy and good for everyone, IT FREAKING SELLS!
Signal boost, please!
