this song really freaks me out but i keep on listening to it
y want to go to film school but I will never in a million years be able to afford it. And I’m NOT going to get a loan because loans are creepy and I don’t trust that shit.
Actually I don’t necessarily want to go to film school, I just want to find a group of likeminded people who want to pursue film and art projects with me. A bunch of people that are really invested in doing it, and doing it together. I don’t give a shit about making a profit. I don’t mind living in the small, crappy apartments and eat dumpster dive food all the time. I just want to be able to afford telling stories through film (or music, or writing, or other media etc), and enabling others to get their stories told.
Statuette of a Woman: “The Stargazer”, c. 3000 BC

Cleveland Museum of Art, Gallery 102a
Image and Description from Cleveland Museum of Art: ”Executed in translucent marble this is one of the oldest sculptures of the human figure in the museum. The incised triangle at the pelvis indicates that this is a female figure. Her head is sculpted fully in the round while her body is reduced to an elegant profile. The figure’s meaning and context are unknown, though it probably carries religious connotations related to fertility and abundance. This Kilia-type figure, named for an excavation site in what is now Turkey, is one of about 30 such figures known, and is especially rare because it is complete. She is a “stargazer” because her eyes look to the stars above, home of powerful divine forces.”
I feel especially drawn to this figure because even though it is a little over 5000 years old it closely resembles a style often-used in the animation films of today.
