i’m a show runner for doctor who between 2005 and 2009 i need help budgeting my show here’s what i have:

david tennant’s accent coach: 5 dollars
musical score: 3,000 dollars
ambient light varying in color to bathe billie piper in: 10,000 dollars
please help me my coworkers are so angry at me
he doesn’t, he’s Scottish and was putting on an English accent for the role
this is literally news to me i feel lied to
would now be a bad time to mention his birth name is David McDonald
There was another actor named David McDonald and it was against union rules to have two so he had to change it.
OP, you should make it clear that this budget is not for the Estuary accent that David affected throughout the series, as he already had that skill himself. This budget is obviously for that one episode with Queen Victoria where he, a Scottish person with a Scottish accent playing an English person with an Estuary accent, pretended to have a bad Scottish accent. That was #acting and it was well worth the financial support. My real concerns with this budget are that it appears to be in dollars, and that it implies that British film students have cars. This is unrealistic and unreasonable
it’s because you’re not supposed to buy them they’re supposed to be given to you by a lesbian in a lake
what is it that makes swords seem so unattainable? you can get one for like $20 on amazon. sure some of them are upwards of 300+ bucks but thats for the real artisan shit. if you just want a blade you can grind and swing around thats so cheap. replica swords arent hard to make. swords ARE a reality you can achieve. but they seem so lofty. like something beyond what any of us could ever dream of owning. and yet we can
I was doing my makeup today while my brother was fixing his hair. It was quiet and we were both busy doing ourselves up, but after I put on mascara I noticed that Nico was staring at me. “Did you know that some guys wear mascara?” he said and I was like pfft, yeah, of course, dude. I know guys who put on way more than I do. Nico just nodded and continued with his hair. A few minutes later, he brought it up again. “I know a guy who played in my baseball team that would put on mascara. It was … cool, I guess.” And after a moment of awkward silence, I turned to him and went: “Nico, do you wanna try some on?”
Yep. He did. He told me so after a little bit of asking, but he felt intimidated to try it on himself. So, I grabbed a really natural looking mascara and lightly put on one coat for him. It wasn’t all cute and serene, btw, it was very us (”fuck, don’t poke my eye out, bro” “nico, are you fuckin serious, i’m not gonna” “aaah, fuck, you’re gonna poke me!” “stop moving!”). But afterward he looked at himself in the mirror and was hesitant. He said he didn’t know if he liked it. And i just shrugged because…I guess, I didn’t want him to think anything wild about it. He could wear mascara or not, but I didn’t want him to be insecure about it all the same. “Well, that’s fine,” I said. “It’s no big. You just wipe it off and it’s gone. You want me to pass you a wipe?”
But he kept staring at himself in the mirror and he was like: No, actually…I like it. It makes my eyes pop. Then Nico turned around and waggled his eyebrows at me and went: bitches love my eyes. they won’t stand a chance now.
Today, Nico came into my room while I was doing my nails and he asked me what’s good with my mascara and I was like ???. Anyways, that was his form of asking for mascara again, checking himself out in the mirror for a minute and a half, and finally declaring: “I fucks with how this makes my eyes look”
Yas. Normalize guys wearing makeup

“As early as the 1920s, researchers giving IQ tests to non-Westerners realized that any test of intelligence is strongly, if subtly, imbued with cultural biases… Samoans, when given a test requiring them to trace a route form point A to point B, often chose not the most direct route (the “correct” answer), but rather the most aesthetically pleasing one. Australian aborigines find it difficult to understand why a friend would ask them to solve a difficult puzzle and not help them with it. Indeed, the assumption that one must provide answers alone, without assistance from those who are older and wiser, is a statement about the culture-bound view of intelligence. Certainly the smartest thing to do, when face with a difficult problem, is to seek the advice of more experienced relatives and friends!”

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times. IQ tests measure how well someone takes IQ tests and that is it.

Dude I really honest to god thought there was some 5 year old professional boxer out here helping other kids and like to find out its about a dog just really shook my core
A DOG MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE THAN A FIVE YEAR OLD MMA CHAMP
Please write stories that are problematic.
Stories need conflict.
Write them to show what’s healthy. Write them to show what’s unhealthy.
Write them because problematic behaviors exists, and writing is a medium to explore and show– to teach and make the reader think. Shying away from these topics only creates ignorance.
I see so many people telling writers to avoid anything that could be problematic, like writing about it is supporting it. They fail to see the importance of writing with depth and meaning.
Writing has always been about conveying thoughts and ideas without fear of censorship. Being able to present problematic situations in a healthy way is important.
