I don’t know how, I don’t know why, but somehow my little book Chasers of the Light, is #30 of All books on All of Amazon right now. I am astounded by your support. Tell you what, if it hits number 1, even for a moment, I will randomly give away a signed copy of the book with a haiku just for you written in the front cover. Spread the word. Poetry is not Dead.

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel
Speaking their lines vs the final product
Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?
Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a dedicated motherfucking professional.
Vin Diesel made you fall in love with a character who said 4 words. The CGI brought his words to visual life, but they’d be meaningless without his amazing command of voice.
Basically vin Diesel had the challenge of:
"OK, this is the message you’re trying to convey"
"But you can only ONLY say I am Groot”
Because every time Groot says “I am Groot” he means something and vin Diesel had to convey that message as best he could with only those 3 words through inflection, emphasis, and emotion.
And this was his first job after suddenly losing one of his closest friends.

Book Ginny: Oh, you didn’t think anyone would understand, did you? What about me, the girl who was possessed by Voldemort? Tough freakin’ shit, Harry, now lemme go kick your rear in Quidditch.
Movie Ginny: *stares at Harry as eyes widen* *awkwardly kisses Harry* do u want some mini pies Harry.
Book Ginny > Movie Ginny.
Happy birthday, Harry Potter!
To celebrate Harry Potter’s 34th birthday, I made my own book covers for the whole series. I was inspired by the vintage Penguin Scores collection Jan Tschichold designed. I created patterns using a significant object from each book. I used those in the movies as reference and digitally painted all seven. You can view the whole project here! :)
