Mary. Bermudian-American. Female and Fat. Deal with it. Loud. Nerdy. Prone to laughing at her own jokes. Sometimes NSFW. Also- I cuss. A lot.
And he is so cute too… Osric talks about how he wanted to be stunt guy, but he wasn’t good enough so he became an actor. HE STILL DOES THIS THOUGH. BECAUSE HE IS FOLLOWING HIS DREAMS. ANY. WAY. HE. CAN.
This has been me telling you: if you don’t love Osric Chau, you are doing it wrong.

On how the show will handle some of the novel’s odder moments:
You have to ground it in the emotional reality of what Shadow, or Wednesday, or Laura is experiencing in that moment. One of the exciting things for us in adapting this is that we get to expand characters, so Bilquis, who is only in a chapter of the book, then you don’t see her again, is a major player in this world. Laura, who is kind of lurking in the background, she’s a major player in this world.
On developing the novel’s women characters for television:
One of the things that’s important for anybody adapting source material that is primarily a male buddy picture is to find ways to latch on to strong female characters in the piece and bring them to the forefront and celebrate their point of view alongside the men, otherwise it becomes a sausage party and it’s a singular point of view.
I AM DEAD. I AM DEAD, AND BRYAN FULLER HAS KILLED ME WITH ALL OF HIS CORRECT OPINIONS AND CREATIVE DECISIONS. BILQUIS IS GOING TO BE EXPANDED INTO A MAIN CHARACTER!!!!! ENTIRE EPISODES FROM LAURA’S PERSPECTIVE!!!! I AM NOT BREATHING!!!!
some orphan black inspired tattoo designs! sorry it took me like 92 years to do this. i live in the middle of nowhere and i can’t travel everywhere and tattoo everyone as much as i’d really love to so have these, feel free to get them done by your local tattooist. but of course if you could come and get them done by me that would be even better! i’ve updated the art section on my blog too and it has a tattoo section now so all future ob tattoos and designs will be posted there c: there will definitely be more soon.
if you’re gonna get any of these done pretty please try to change something in the design or ask your tattooist to do it for you, so that if someone else gets the same thing you don’t end up becoming clones of each other. try to do something to make it uniquely yours, change the colours, add or take away stuff, whatever. also remember to credit and stuff obvs and send me pictures!
aaand if you’re thinking of asking about commissions, please read this.
I had one of the best days ever today when I sat in the front row at the TIFF screening of Chris Evans’ directorial debut (which he also stars in) ‘Before We Go’.
He got on stage afterward for a Q&A with the audience, and he was so nice and so sweet, and obviously handsome as fuck. Ugh. He’s my biggest celebrity crush, and has pretty much been since I was an 11 year old boy in love with him when ‘Not Another Teen Movie' first came out, lol! I can't express how important today was to me, and how awesome it was being so close to him in person. And he's just as beautiful/sexy in real life as on the big screen, if not more so.
The movie itself was really good; an intimate tale about two strangers who end up wandering the streets of New York City together all night. Chris was wonderful and charming as ever, and the music was superb; probably my favourite song ever was in the film (Song for Zula by Phosphorescent) which just made me fall in love more. It was such an honour to be able to experience Chris’ first film as a Director. He definitely has a bright future behind the screen.
Do not steal my photos. I will hunt you down and find you:)
