I want to try not to repeat myself. But then I seem to do it continuously in my films. It’s not something I make any effort to do. I just want to make films that are personal, but interesting to an audience. I feel I get criticized for style over substance, and for details that get in the way of the characters. But every decision I make is how to bring those characters forward. –Wes Anderson


#Whitesupremacy +the gargantuan amount of time, $, and space it feeds to filmmakers that look and identify like him & his own at-times problematic catalogue aside, I’m thankful for this quote. It explains my manner of storytelling so concisely!!!

Thoughts on post-K #NewOrleans from today’s book club meeting:
°The irony of @MileyCyrus making million$ attempting to twerk at a #NOLA concert while a few blocks away #QTPOC who created #bounce and #twerking are being policed, demonized, and pushed out.

°White #NewNewOrleanians enjoying imported cheeses and  a disproportionate share of jobs at the new @WholeFoodsMarket on Broad. 

°All-white “stepping clubs” forming and parading freely while #MardiGrasIndians are being forced not to impede traffic.

°Noise ordinances and crackdowns on street performers in NOLA
What role will natives play in the futuring of this city?
