I'm a little out of the loop - why does everyone seem to hate alex graves as a director?

maisiewilliams:

He’s human waste. If I had to choose someone on earth to pick up and throw into a garbage can because he belongs there, Alex Graves would be the top of my list. Here is a little recap of some of the shitty things he did:

Insisted that the Cersei and Jaime altar sex scene was, “by the end” of the scene, consensual. [X] Remember that scene where Jaime pushed Cersei to the ground and she said no over and over again? Here’s a choice quote from Graves, to show how ridiculously delusional he is (and, consequently, why he should be kept in a box under a bridge instead of giving him creative control over one of the most watched shows on television): 

"And Jaime is very much ready to have sex with her because he hasn’t made love to her since he got back, and she’s sort of cajoled into it, and it is consensual.”

ASTONISHING. You contradicted yourself, so I don’t even have to break down your statement to show how wrong you are!! Thanks Alex!!!! But here’s the big quote, which is clearly one of the most disturbing things I’ve read in a while:

"The consensual part of it was that she wraps her legs around him, and she’s holding on to the table, clearly not to escape but to get some grounding in what’s going on."

I?????? am????? so concerned that people like this exist in the world and have artistic influence??? This is shocking. Consent is so widely misconstrued that people like Alex Graves genuinely believe that a statement like this could be correct. That doesn’t only make me want to stop watching Game of Thrones, it makes me feel unsafe generally in life.

An extra special note - Graves stated that this was his favorite scene he ever shot. What a nice, skin crawlingly terrifying thing to say. 

His reasons for why Stoneheart were not included in the show are misogynistic bullshit. [X] More or less his explanation for not including her amounted to - ‘eh, women and violence? Not sexualized violence? No thanks.’ Here’s the exact quote:

"Well, she was never going to be a part of it. I think the bottom line is that there was so much going on, at least from where I stood, that it wasn’t something to get into because, you know, when you get into taking Michelle Fairley, one of the greatest actresses around, and making her a zombie who doesn’t speak and goes around killing people, what’s the best way to integrate that into the show?…From what I know of the books, it’s like, Okay, what’s she really there for?" 

How are you even supposed to respond to drivel like this? A woman who enacts violence in the name of her family who has been brutally murdered, a woman who objectively would serve as a hero or revenge character for the majority of the asoiaf audience - just…..isn’t interesting enough for Alex Graves? I wonder if that has ANYTHING to do with how far his head is up his ass.

He doesn’t give a shit about GRRM’s writing. Like, at all. Here we go:

"I have read a lot of the books, but I didn’t read that scene because I wasn’t doing that scene; I was doing the scene our writers wrote"

It’s like trying to talk to a militant five year old that you’ve allowed to pick where you’re going to dinner that evening. It’s really your own fault for giving the five year old any power in the first place, and now he’s just going to fuck you over gleefully. 

Except he’s not a five year old, he’s a full grown man who understands next to nothing about life, let alone the show that he was directing, and then laughs whenever someone tries to call him on it. His response to directing a rape scene was “eh, it’s not actually rape, because you know, I as a white man say so.” Human garbage. Boycott Alex Graves existing 2k14.

THE UP SERIES: It follows the lives of 14 children through their lives interviewing them every seven years. It’s amazing to see how they change and where they go. It shows that personality traits do not tend to be very static. Being introverted at 18 doesn’t determine how you’ll be at 32. A girl on there around 20 was totally against having a family and was very cynical about relationships and marriage. Next interview, she was happily wed with children. I link you to 7 UP, which is the first documentary in the series. 
QUEEN OF VERSAILLES:If you have any interest in the SUPER RICH of America and how absolutely delusional they can be, then this documentary will blow your mind. It’s a great window into the lives of people who literally have everything a person could need. Even when they loose everything, they’re entirely incapable of believing that they’re a normal citizen.
THE ACT OF KILLING: One review describes it as: “This is the most gut-wrenching film I’ve ever seen. It actually makes you understand the nature and true face of evil, and it’s terrifying because it’s so, so normal. After watching it you know that in some other life, you could be him.”
BABIES: It shows the different ways, different cultures raise their children. It shows how different but similar we all are at the end. They documentary follows 4 different babies, from Mongalia, to Tokyo, to Namibia and then the U.S
INSIDE NORTH KOREA: An eye-opening film that shows you the truth about a hidden country 
TOUCHING THE VOID: A documentary about two mountain climbers who have an accident on their way back. As one review described it: “Better than any fictional suspense film. Just unreal. You know throughout that the two climbers lived because you’re sitting there watching them narrate, but at times you just can’t believe it.”
THE COVE: A 2009 documentary film that analyzes and questions dolphin hunting practices in Japan. One review described it as “an impeccably crafted, suspenseful expose of the covert slaughter of dolphins in Japan.”
THIS IS WHAT WINNING LOOKS LIKE: The documentary follows U.S. Marines as they train Afghan security forces, showing their ineptitude, drug abuse, sexual misconduct, and corruption as well as the reduced role of US Marines due to the troop withdrawal.
BBC PLANET EARTH (All 11 Episodes): An HD exploration of our world. You’ll just love everything about this, trust me. 
JESUS CAMP: About a Christian summer camp, where children spend their summers being taught that they have “prophetic gifts” and can “take back America for Christ”. This documentary led to the shut down of this summer camp.

NORTH KOREA UNDERCOVER: Another NK documentary because while it’s incredibly disturbing, I also found this one to be really interesting. Seems more serious than the other one.

So I was wondering if anyone else was aware of this but if you hold           ”Z” + “C” (“alt” + “C” for mac) this comes up so you can literally post something while you’re in the middle of your dash and you won’t have to open a new tab or go back to the top.
((credit goes to the 3 year old who thought it would be funny to hit my keyboard while she was watching me scroll through tumblr))

Holy fucking shit tumblr developers did something actually useful

^and failed to mention it to their users, rendering it useless until accidentally discovered by a toddler

PART I | PART II | PART III | PART IV

Do yourself a favor. Learn to code. Here’s how.

boomeyer:

I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.

Learning to code elevates your professional life, and makes you more knowledgeable about the massive changes taking place in the technology sector that are poised to have an immense influence on human life.

(note: yes I realize that 3/5 of those links were Google projects)

But most folks are intimidated by coding. And it does seem intimidating at first. But peel away the obscurity and the difficulty, and you start to learn that coding, at least at its basic level, is a very manageable, learnable skill.

There are a lot of resources out there to teach you. I’ve found a couple to be particularly successful. Here’s my list of resources for learning to code, sorted by difficulty:

Novice

Never written a line of code before? No worries. Just visit one of these fine resources and follow their high-level tutorials. You won’t get into the nitty-gritty, but don’t worry about it for now:

Dash - by General Assembly

CodeAcademy

w3 Tutorials (start at HTML on the left sidebar and work your way down)


Intermediate

Now that you’ve gone through a handful of basic tutorials, it’s time to learn the fundamentals of actual, real-life coding problems. I’ve found these resources to be solid:

Khan Academy

CodeAcademy - Ruby, Python, PHP

Difficult

If you’re here, you’re capable of building things. You know the primitives. You know the logic control statements. You’re ready to start making real stuff take shape. Here are some different types of resources to turn you from someone who knows how to code, into a full-fledged programmer.

Programming problems

Sometimes, the challenges in programming aren’t how to make a language do a task, but just how to do the task in general. Like how to find an item in a very large, sorted list, without checking each element. Here are some resources for those types of problems

Talentbuddy

TopCoder

Web Applications

If you learned Python, Django is an amazing platform for creating quick-and-easy web applications. I’d highly suggest the tutorial - it’s one of the best I’ve ever used, and you have a web app up and running in less than an hour.

Django Tutorial

I’ve never used Rails, but it’s a very popular and powerful framework for creating web applications using Ruby. I’d suggest going through their guide to start getting down-and-dirty with Rails development.

Rails Guide

If you know PHP, there’s an ocean of good stuff out there for you to learn how to make a full-fledged web application. Frameworks do a lot of work for you, and provide quick and easy guides to get up and running. I’d suggest the following:

Cake PHP Book

Symfony 2 - Get Started

Yii PHP - The Comprehensive Guide

Conclusion


If there’s one point I wanted to get across, it’s that it is easier than ever to learn to code. There are resources on every corner of the internet for potential programmers, and the benefits of learning even just the basics are monumental.

If you know of any additional, great resources that aren’t listed here, please feel free to tweet them to me @boomeyer.

Best of luck!
