Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there?
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable. [x]

Blade Runner (1982; dir. Ridley Scott)
It was a foretelling of how a boy, who wants desperately to have a father who will protect him, finally realizes that father exists in himself. To put that together, as Jimmy had to have done, and realize that he could create that nugget at the beginning that would let the audience know what this movie was about without explaining it to them was some of the most elegant screen writing I have ever come across. And you’re really grateful when a director or actor can find those things. - Stewart Stern, screenwriter
Still-Practiced Pagan Ritual Costumes
These are not your average Halloween costumes. For two years, French photographer Charles Fréger has been traveling throughout European countries, trying to capture the spirit of what he calls “tribal Europe” in his Wilder Mann series. What he found was a huge array of pagan rituals, mainly related to the winter solstice and spring renewal, focusing on the common myth of the “wild man.”
It appears that the tradition of men dressing up as wild animals and monsters, which dates back to neolithic times and shamanism, is still very alive. The mythological figure of a “wild man” represents the complicated relationship humans have with nature and life and death cycles. His series explores the different interpretations of such figures – while some cultures depict him as covered in flowers or straws, others possess the features of bears, goats, or horned and hairy beasts.
