"I’ve heard that you’re also a fan of Tim Burton? It must have been an extra dream then that it’s Helena Bonham Carter’s first Harry film too?"

Evanna Lynch: I was so shy about that. Sometimes she’d be in make-up chair beside me and I was thinking of what to say to her, and then she’d get up and leave. I didn’t want to go: “Oh, I love your husband! Or partner or whatever.” The one of the runners told her and she said: “Oh, you’ll have to come for tea sometime!” I don’t know how I’d deal with that.

Transcendence was such a wild fucking movie, but it was a phenomenal one. I love Johnny Depp’s movies because they are great, but this one takes the fucking cake. I absolutely love(d) it and would 100000000x recommend everyone to watch it.

Riverside district bans 'The Fault in Our Stars' from middle school libraries

2

I usually refrain from getting involved in ridiculous discussions about things on the internet, because it just leads to me getting into pointless arguments with people and a lot of name calling and stupidity, but in the words of Hank Green, “SOMEONE ON THE INTERNET IS WRONG.”

Here is my full comment in the comments section of this article:

OPEN LETTER TO KAREN KRUEGER:

Dear Karen Krueger,

1) All other issues with your ridiculous ban aside, The Fault In Our Stars is a great work of literary fiction. Forget Divergent. Forget Twilight. Forget The Hunger Games. They are rudimentary compared to John Green’s work as a novelist. The amount of philosophical (see “Maslow’s hierarchy of needs” and information about Kierkegaard) and literary background and information in TFIOS alone would suggest that John Green knows much more about his craft than any other Young Adult writer I’ve ever seen. I would much rather have a child I know (let’s use my 12 year old sister as an example) reading a John Green novel than ANY other Young Adult novel simply because he is a better writer. 
2) To assume that 12 year old children don’t know about sex and mortality and have not given death EXTENSIVE thought is ridiculous and naive. I learned what sex was when I was 8 or 10, because my parents were willing to give me the information I was asking for, and because they were willing to sit down and talk to me frankly about it. 
3) The “sex” we’re talking about? It’s barely talked about in the novel itself. There is perhaps a full paragraph dedicated to that particular point. I won’t say it’s implied, because it is obvious (the word “condom” is used - BUT HEY LOOK IT’S TWO TEENAGERS PRACTICING SAFE SEX! YAY!) It’s not like in Twilight (which I read many years before I read TFIOS. Nobody was talking about banning that book, in which a teenager gets pregnant after the first time she has sex with a 107 year old, blood sucking, undead mythological creature trapped in the sparkly body of a 17 year old boy. Yuck). 
4) You needn’t shelter your children from this stuff. If you are willing to have a calm and rational discussion with your kids, I don’t understand why they can’t read these books. 
5) We all die. We do. It is inevitable. You will die, your child will die, your household pet will die, their friends will die, their friends parents will die. Human finitude is the only sure thing in life. It is time, I think, we stop thinking about death as something taboo, as something separate from life, and start thinking about it as certainly intertwined with life. 
6) I actually gave this book to my sister (who was twelve at the time) because she is interested in writing and she has a passion for books (you have no idea how happy it makes me to say that my little sister actually reads books, as most of her friends tell me they “don’t like reading”). I gave her this book because a) I have never seen a female character written so honestly by a male writer. b) I have never read a book targeted at young people that discussed death and human finitude with such frankness and such honesty, and I felt my sister needed to have that kind of discourse in her life, since death is a subject that actually interests her deeply and sometimes frightens her (as it frightens every young person, I think) and this book, although it deals with death heavily, has a hopeful and uplifting message at the end, and I thought this could help my sister with some of the things she struggles with.
7) Have you read the book, Ms. Karen Krueger? Did you bother to flip through its pages and see what it was REALLY about? Did you watch the movie? (The movie delivers the same message as the book. You could watch the movie too, and be equally aware of the story). If you have done both and really spent time trying to discern John Green’s final meaning, you totally missed the point of the novel. You missed it entirely. And that makes me sad, but all one can hope is that you and the people who also voted with you to ban this masterpiece of a story from the eyes it was meant for will reconsider your decision, with these thoughts in mind.

Sincerely,
Tanis Smither

"She was honest. Honest. There was nothing phony about her. If she was having a breakdown, she made sure you had a breakdown, too, right along with her. If she was happy, there was no way you were not going to feel her happiness. The camera cannot lie. It can telegraph completely fabricated emotions, but it cannot lie when the honesty is already there. With Judy, you never saw a dishonest moment. Everything she did was so real that you don’t believe you’re watching an actress; you knew that you were seeing something that went beyond acting, greater than acting. It was reality. And she could take one song and give you a two-hour M-G-M movie between the first and last bars. And I’ve never seen anyone else do that. And then, of course, there was that incredible instrument; I’ve never heard a voice like that, either. In the world of popular music, she was what Joan Sutherland is to opera; she was what Joe DiMaggio was to baseball." — Rex Reed, John Fricke, “Judy Garland: A Portrait in Art & Anecdote.”
