I saw a tweet that showed the difference between how Annie shot Denzel and Viola in VF for Fences, and how Dario shot Viola above. It’s fucking night and day. Leibovitz makes Denzel and Viola look ashy, with gray tones. The Dario cover is rich, with a lot of subtle luminescence. Read more

I think it would be nice if we could get a list of everybody involved, and when they show up at the hospital with symptoms, tell them, “sorry, you’re responsible for your own medical decisions.

The “Trump is a germaphobe” thing needs to stop. He’s not. None of his behavior tracks with being a germaphobe other than being a narcissist which is often related. There aren’t even any anecdotes about this. Read more
