1. Real TV Exec Notes





    Apparently there’s a twitter account for Hollywood writers to submit some of the crazy requests TV execs give them back in their script notes. My Reality TV professor sent them to my class in an email. These are hilarious but also scare me for my own future as a screenwriter…

    For anyone who feels complacent that TV is operated by objective, rational, even-headed, level-minded, finger-on-the-pulse human beings.


    Always question the TV you consume! Learn to discern!


    Presumably they’re just watching Game of Thrones and filing the HBO subscription as a tax write off.

    Okay, I need a larger version of the bottom left picture. Whyyyy does he look like a subby sub to the giant clawed thing? He’s kind of smirking! And very naked! And it has its claw-hand around his throat in a very proprietary way! And it looks like he’s restrained! WHAT IS HAPPENING??

Caught looking
  5. Gabourey, how are you so confident?” It’s not easy. It’s hard to get dressed up for award shows and red carpets when I know I will be made fun of because of my weight. There’s always a big chance if I wear purple, I will be compared to Barney. If I wear white, a frozen turkey. And if I wear red, that pitcher of Kool-Aid that says, “Oh, yeah!” Twitter will blow up with nasty comments about how the recent earthquake was caused by me running to a hot dog cart or something. And “Diet or Die?” [She gives the finger to that] This is what I deal with every time I put on a dress. This is what I deal with every time someone takes a picture of me. Sometimes when I’m being interviewed by a fashion reporter, I can see it in her eyes, “How is she getting away with this? Why is she so confident? How does she deal with that body? Oh my God, I’m going to catch fat!

    The worst of all possible things that could happen would be to lose that language [that black people love so much]. There are certain things I cannot say without recourse to my language. It’s terrible to think that a child with five different present tenses comes to school to be faced with those books that are less than his own language. And then to be told things about his language, which is him, that are sometimes permanently damaging… This is a really cruel fallout of racism. I know the Standard English. I want to use it to help restore the other language, the lingua franca.

    1. He ø runnin. Standard American English (SAE )= He is running.

    2. He be runnin. SAE = He is usually running or He will/would be running.

    3. He be steady runnin. SAE = He is usually running in an intensive, sustained manner, or He will/would be running in an intensive, sustained manner.

    4. He(’s) been/bin runnin. SAE He has been running–at some earlier point, but probably not now.
    Other examples: I been knowing her. SAE = I have known her.
    About eleven o’clock he been eating. SAE = … he was eating.

    5. He BEEN/BIN runnin’. SAE = He has been running for a long time, and still is.
    -This is a use of the African American English (AAE) stressed been/remote BIN.

    this is for whoever was telling me that AAVE isn’t a real thing… UGH

    Note how precise each AAVE phrase is.

    For anyone who thinks aave is just slang.
