#Please do not support Taylor’s new movie made by this monster
oneweekoneband · 9 months ago
a hugely inexpert, absolutely correct examination of The Planets and their role in taylor swift turning out to be such a freak
Tumblr media
Astrology is real. Astrology is made-up nonsense. Made-up nonsense is real. One person’s chosen organizing principle for living is no more or less stupid than anyone elses. All of this is true or maybe it isn’t. Don’t roll your eyes too hard, but Joan Didion wasn’t lying—we do tell ourselves stories in order to live. It’s about all we do. I don’t understand the stars and planets because I don’t believe it’s my business what happens up there, plus I’m a little dumb, but I, like any blubbering narcissist, enjoy being told something about myself, and what is a horoscope but an opaque little love note designed to be interpreted by the reader in whatever way suits them best. There are astrologers who write beautiful, empathetic horoscopes that are a balm whether you believe them or not, and in this way astrology has a cultural value which makes any dubious scientific purity irrelevant. I don’t understand the stars and planets, but I have friends that do, and I like hearing whatever they sort out. Certainly, I’m not immune to believing in spurious little rituals; I was raised Catholic. Thinking that your star sign is responsible for certain aspects of your personality is no more impractical than keeping a Saint Christopher medal in your car to protect you from danger while traveling. These days I do both. Astrology is possibly real or possibly is not and maybe it matters what “real” means or else it might not, yeah, but the philosophical questions recede in the face of one fact upon which we can all agree: Taylor Swift has a profoundly upsetting birth chart.
Right off the bat, just from an aesthetic standpoint, this image (above) is not inviting. I don’t like to see it. When I wrote about Taylor Swift on this site in 2013 I didn’t know my moon or rising signs. This knowledge was not yet mandatory for trying to date girls and/or understanding jokes online. I was, at that time, far from even the semi-astrologically-literate state I am in now, yet even then if you’d have shown me this image, I know I’d shudder. It doesn’t take a scholar of any kind to see this and feel a chill down your spine, the itch of cold, spectral fingers closing around your wrist. Look at it again. The painful bisection by those angry blue lines. If you found this painted on a cave wall you’d turn and run back towards the fresh air of the opening, blinking back tears, certain some undead beast was following in your wake. This is a birth chart that says I am capable of writing songs like “All Too Well” but sometimes what I like better is to name a cat after the worst David Fincher movie and do a anti-homophobia music video that actually is so bad it felt somehow like it itself was homophobia. This is a birth chart that says I am going to release my new album, Red (2012), with a promo wherein Papa John’s will bring you a copy of it along with your pizza. This is a birth chart that says yeah, I used to do a fake twang as a teenager, and then I dropped the fake twang, but I can bring it back with no notice sometimes so all the girls (mentally ill adult women who have a Pavlovian response to anything that kinda sounds like “Hey Stephen”) go wild.
Taylor Swift is a Sagittarius. That’s the one with the arrow. It’s one of the good signs, theoretically, because it’s one that I have a lot of in my own chart, and because it’s in November and December, which are months where you can wear all your coats. Some other Sagittarians include Brad Pitt, Britney Spears, Janelle Monae, 8th US President Martin Van Buren, Jane Fonda, my friend C., who, in fact, happens to share all three major placements, sun, moon, and rising, with Ms. Swift, but I still don’t think she’s murdered anyone, and, of course, Jake “Twin fire signs / Four Blue Eyes” Gyllenhaal. So we have basically a lot of hot people and one guy who died of asthma, but who did manage to get the highest ranking job in the country first, though the country was a lot smaller then, and didn’t even have McDonalds yet to serve to teams that win college football tournaments. All in all, seems okay. Her moon is in Cancer. I think this connotes something about the watery depths of her emotional self, and it’s the only astrological placement which gets a shout out in the Joni Mitchell song “Little Green”. Her rising sign is Scorpio which is, like... Well, Scorpio to me is Halloween and Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. Medically speaking, I think that influence is how the stylings for the reputation era turned out so very Hot Topic. My moon is in Scorpio so this is a self-own as much as anything else.
Tumblr media
Now look at this. What does it mean? Impossible to say, but that will not stop me from concluding that whatever it does mean is definitely bad. It will not stop me from extrapolating that probably a “multiple planet opposition” is the kind of thing that makes a person go to Stonewall during Pride for a surprise appearance but perform “Shake It Off” instead of any of the actual really good and sexy songs. But then, I bet it probably also factored into her developing into the kind of creative mind who would write something as weird and funny and vital as “And I’ve been meaning to tell you / I think your house is haunted / your dad is always mad and that must be why,” so possibly bad is good and good is bad and the various astrological signs just signify the different ways we relate to death. I don’t know. I’m scared.
Tumblr media
In the documentary Folkore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions, released on Disney+ last month to accompany the record, because this daughter of three generations of bank presidents is nothing if not a money-maker, Taylor wears a terrifying outfit that I started to like rather than recoil from by about halfway through, and while wearing it espouses a belief that we are all monsters, which I happen to figure is correct. In Madame Clairevoyant’s Guide to the Stars, essential book on astrology and, importantly, the vagaries of the human heart, the incomparable Claire Comstock-Gay writes, “For Sagittarius, the desire is shifting and undefined. This is a drive, above all else, to see, to learn, to experience, to continually seek knowledge. It’s a drive to live a life that never asks or requires that you cede your freedom and never requires you to stop searching.” Certainly, this is the kind of internal compass which would lead to making the unusual, dramatic, and frankly very cool decision to entirely re-record your first six albums when ownership of the original masters has fallen into the hands of a little creep named “””Scooter””” who refuses to relinquish this morally, if not actually legally, false claim. For years I have speculated that actual murder of a human would not be outside of Taylor Swift’s capabilities. This is a statement made with neither praise or criticism attached. It’s a clinical observation from a sterling mind. What I feel with equal conviction, but admit more grudgingly, is that, if it happened, she’d have a perfectly logical reason. (Note: Taylor, if you’re reading this, I am not the type who’d rat anyway. It’s fine. Please don’t sue me.) I’m positive the astrological facts support my findings on this, and if I’m wrong, fortunately I will never find out. Anyway, the next full moon is in 22 days. I always want to look at it and then I forget. There’s a lot going on in space, and while I do feel that any cosmic forces which would put me and Taylor Swift on Earth at the same time are sort of inherently malevolent, I guess it’s been pretty fun, too.

Get to know me tag game
thanks for the tag lovely @queen-of-salt-and-fury! 
Nicknames: lol, I mean, my fake internet name is basically a nickname, also “C”, all the broski, brosauce, etc variations me and my bestie use, speaking of, could also consider Elsa a nickname, or Cristina, because we are stone cold adults to refer to each other as our respective personality double in favourite duos (Elsa and Anna, and Meredith and Cristina) - yeah, we know we are fucking lame. My sister calls me “Titly”, which means butterfly, you may now also refer to me as Your Majesty, because I bought Elsa’s crown as a birthday gift for myself and gave myself a coronation, thereby legally making me Arendelle’s Queen. This is how it works now right? Declaring something online immediately makes it true. 
Real name: Clara, lol, it’s not, it’s just what I’ve been using online for nearly a decade or so now, so what’s the point? But my real middle name is “Taika”, which is a name I share with Taika Waititi, which is cool. 
Zodiac: Scorpio 
Favourite Musicians / Band: Taylor Swift, Dima Bilan, Sergey Lazarev, Anime OST (deep into Code Geass and Bleash OST atm, god they were iconic), OST in general, KAZKA (thank you again so much @pulltheskydown for introducing me to her), Alma, Amir, Rihanna, Polina Gagarina, been in a Britney mood the last few weeks. Idk, I just have music I like, and music I don’t like, and some people I am very thirsty for. Also, also, literally any song from any Shahrukh Khan movie. I always was, still am, and always will be, one of those SRK loving bitches. The man is ICONIC. 
Do I get asks?: Once in a blue moon. 
Favourite sports team: I support the national teams ‘cause Go Canada Go or whatever. Also more invested in the Raptors than I ever thought I’d be, but hey, them winning the NBA last year gave me more serotonin than I ever thought boring sports could give me. It’s still so boring, but I do follow the scores when they appear on CP24 (local news channel), feels good when your city’s teams win. Guess that means by default I also support the Blue Jays and the Maple Leafs, but whatever. 
Other blogs: lol, you are talking to the Queen of Too Many blogs right here. My first ever main was @livesinabluebox (which has gone through a few url changes, namely melanin-monster and moonrxvenge, but it’s 2012 again so I switched back to my og url), I’m trying to clear out all my likes so I’m still posting there, but trying to move to my new main over @moonrxvenge. And I also have 600 million sideblogs for characters and roleplays and resources and whatever. I have so many that I need to keep a masterlist, and yes, it is HELLA out of date. (I still say hella)
Tumblr Crushes: meh, I never really befriended people on tumblr until much more recently, and like all those people are friends I made elsewhere, ie polyvore (I shy, tumblr scary and got far too many stupid peoples opinions). 
Obvs, shoutouts to my loves @kzombi3 / @thots4daze @themadmonarchist @celestialfairies @alittlebitluna @eternalsailorstar @ayzrules @themonsterslut @turquoisesiren @pulltheskydown 
some tumblr people who are v cool and maybe I say things or just do that whole “senpai notice me” lowkey stalking from my main, main: @queen-of-salt-and-fury @daenerys-targaryen  @salty-sailors-unite​ @wellstartled​ and loads of others I’m probably forgetting rn
Lucky numbers: as a kid I considered 7 and 13 lucky, also 735 or something like that for islam reasons I forgot, but I don’t have any now. I think it’s all bull. 
What am I wearing: blue pajamas. my shirt says “happy monday - said nobody ever”, it is thursday. 
Dream holiday: Russia and Japan are definitely my number ones, all the historical places like the Winter Palace and Himeji Castle, and the cities.
Dream car: Tesla, it was a blue Model S, but that was 5 years ago (4? 3? idk, a time ago) and I’m sure there are newer models now that I am too lazy look up
Favourite food: Macarons
Drink of choice: Tim Hortons Ice Coffee with a shot of caramel
Instruments: I technically played the flute for a year (maybe three) in middle school music class, but it was mandated and I don’t remember. I could play the beginning of To Love’s End from Inuyasha back then, but not now. I can play the main tune, like just the first few notes, of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’s main theme on the piano, but I just memorized the keys. Idk the actual notes. F or G or E I guess? Idk. 
Languages: English, Bengali, Hindi, Urdu, technically French, but I didn’t really retain anything from it, like I can read French, but got little to no idea what I’m saying. Straight up surprised when I do understand. I think it’s in there, but barely. Also supposed to be able to speak Arabic, but retained less of that than French. 
Celebrity crushes: Chris Evans, Jenna Coleman, SRK (lol, since I was born probably), Kajol, Bruna Marquezine, Yuki Kimisawa, and loads of others. I’m a hoe for the fictional and the theoretical, what can I say?  
Random facts: Buying notebooks and using them are two entirely different hobbies, and, okay, this isn’t like interesting in the least but I am OBSESSING over the drama that went down between Salman Khan and Zayn over his cover of Allah Duhai Hai - yeah, I know I’m 2 years late to this, but whatever, no fucking told me about it and I can’t find any definitive information and I’m going crazy! Please, someone explain what happened 'cause I am dying!!! I need to know!! (also, salman fans don’t interact, vo kuni hai yaar, tu phagal hai kya?) 
I’ll tag: all of you lovelies  @kzombi3 / @thots4daze @themadmonarchist @celestialfairies @alittlebitluna @eternalsailorstar @ayzrules @themonsterslut @turquoisesiren @pulltheskydown @queen-of-salt-and-fury @daenerys-targaryen @salty-sailors-unite​​ @wellstartled​ + whoever else wants to do it (and ofc tag me and befriend me, I am but a thirsty ass hoe for friendship)

Personality Traits:
Being a born first as a Berserker Type, she is careful with how she handles things. She is too positive for her own good, an unlikely trait for a commander leading a large team. She is motivational to her own team, and isn’t too tight on orders, considering they’re all just fresh of being teens. She avoids stressing those under her and always holds open forum meetings by the end of the week to vent, including her. She is very careful and considerate towards others, to the point that she won’t pester until she knew that the person is ready to talk, but if push comes to shove, she will offer an ear, or two.
She is very protective of her teammates, to the point that if the team is close to failure, she will send them off and finish the mission herself. Surprisingly, she has come home to the team with a less dirt than there are scrapes and bruises.
Being friendly is somewhat hated by other team leader, and other commanders. They consider it unprofessional, a loose and horrible way to lead a team. She is the smiling commander to those on her helm, despite the stress of their job.
Temper and cockiness never leave the field, unless danger is truly a threat to her and her team, but nevertheless, she will be cocky when facing the threat, knowing that no matter what, she will get the job done.
Speaking of getting the job done, she is reliable. Want a report, have it done within the day or tomorrow morning. Another commander is on a mission and she has nobody to watch over their team’s training regimen? She will offer as her substitute. A Type under her hand is sick? Wait no, don’t move, she has soup, medicine on the way. New Types coming into the Institute and no one is ballsy enough to do the introduction? She’s on it.
Types in the world started appearing after the cold war, the now openly accepted Sorcerer Type was the first, and the oldest, as well as Witch Types, where they are more hidden and prefer to not be in the public eye. Types has begun to spread and grow. Fighter, Healer, Priest, Deity, and many other Types appeared in the span of century less.
The rarest however, are Switch Types. Humans who have the ability, to slot two or more Types in them, making them complex and more independent. A less rare type is the Berserker Type.
Like Tank Type, they have automatic passive to be able to carry heavy weapons, such as two-handed swords or heavy axes, as well as belly a large amount of strength, they are the more obvious ones since Tank Types are often found to be Body builders. Berserker Types are different, and even rarer than Tank Type.
Berserker Types are the unsuspecting ones. Humans that can be classified as another Type. They are the Type who are far more agile than Tank Types, smaller, and within their small frames, belly a larger amount of power, filled with not just strength, but anger within them. They are known to be in the dangerous category and can easily outmatch a mixture of all the Types, if they held enough anger in them.
Switch Type. The rarest there is. These are the humans who are also in the dangerous category as they have the ability, to have more than one type. They were first encountered in Germany, during the first World War. They had captured the first few Types that were discovered. It is said that they were either experimented on, to satisfy the theory of having two Types or more. Most of them failed, deemed a failure and were killed in result. Some had survived, and were sent to war, only to kill themselves, along with the Nazi soldiers who were transporting them to the field. One remained and was still not suited to fight, as well as the only one with the greatest success rate, therefore was still under observation, died of famine. A child who was taken away from her home as her father were Jew, and her and her mother were Catholics. When they refused the soldier, the soldiers took their child, a Healer Type, shot the mother in the head, shot the father several times, and burned their home. Catalina Beilzscmidt.
With the rise of Types came the Daemons, highly different from the demons in devildom. Their source is unknown, as they simply appear out of nowhere. Some say it is their fear that makes them even more lethal, some say that they are the Types that were a part of the Fusion Experiment decades ago. And the US Government decided to fund a secret military organization made up of a mix of Types. Their purpose is to eliminate the Daemons, and avoid them from spreading, and possible end Humanity.
The Organization has 4 Divisions, and they are spread in different parts of the world. One is stationed in Canada. Their Commander, known to be the fastest and youngest person to climb the ranks from Newbie to Commander in a span of a Year. Nobody knows her, or what her history is. She the first living phenomenon of the Switch Type, holding the Types, Arsenal, Berserker, and Support Types, she is feared and loved. Her name is C’airynth; The Devil in Disguise. 
Why were they chosen for Devildom? (Optional): The director of the Canada Branch, a Spiritual Type, have requested the assistance of both Celestial and Devildom to aid the Human Realm in their quest to rid the world of daemons, a monster not even Celestial and Devildom combined can make. Diavolo saw this as an opportunity to mend all three realms and therefore have requested the most willing candidate to be their exchange students. The director requested that they keep the status and type of their candidate until it is truly necessary.
Hobbies: Making/ experimenting with food
               Playing games
               Drawing/ Paintin
               Writing random stuff.
Likes: Cooking, jogging, a tumbler sized cup of coffee in the morning, Beel
Dislikes: Caffeine-less morning, doing absolutely nothing, artist/writer’s block.

Bottoms: Black/ grey joggers
Shoes: black chuck taylor
Accessories (if any): Arm bands on her wrists.

How easy do they gain crushes? Acceptance and Coffee, and this lady’s heart is theirs.
Do they believe in love? Yes
What’s their type? She doesn’t have a specific type, she is more worried of the fear of them knowing she is a Three Type, Switch Type, which most people would be anxious of.
Sexuality: Bisexual
Which one of the 7 brothers does your MC like the most?  Beelzebub, next to Mammon.
Why? C’ai has a motherly nature in her, a habit that just grew more and more the longer she became the commander of the countless agents of the Canada Branch. Now after four years into her position, some agents began to look at her as the second mother. This somewhat applies to the people of the Lamentation. Beelzebub stuck to her side as she would often be found coddling the Avatar of Gluttony. The man would be constantly be found to be by her side as she feeds him various snacks the best of her experience can offer.
Before Beel is Mammon. C’ai is not used to this type of dynamic, often finding the brothers belittling their second oldest brother. She could see why the man would inflate his own ego and kept this happy façade. It was like a repeat scenario, a memory of her comforting a dejected, anxious Agent, after their family found out they were not a warrior type, as all the members of the family were, but a Mage Type. She would often keep him in check in a way Lucifer would not do due to his Pride. She would often motivate him, and being her first pact, she would let him do as he please, that is without harming himself, or others.
Favorite food: Shortcake
Least favorite: Bitter Food
Favorite topic in school: History
Least favorite topic: Math (“I think my brain has done enough processing in one lifetime...”)
Favorite color: Red-ish pink
Least favorite color: oversaturated colors
Do they like to be sociable or are they more of a recluse? She sits in the middle. Being a commander forced her to kick herself off her shell and on her down times will she let herself in that shell again.
Favorite movie genre? Horror/thriller
Do they read a lot or no? Research-wise, yes.
Favorite animal: Cats
Favorite genre of music: Indie and EDM
Least favorite genre: Unknown
Do they like sweets? Do not touch her snickers and Shortcake stash. I REPEAT, DO NOT TOUCH HER SNEAKERS AND SHORTCAKE STASH
Do they like spicy food? Yes
Do they like school? Do they have huge, Beauty and the beast type Library? Sign her up.
Pet peeves: Not having her daily dose of her coffee or Starbucks in the morning. (Lucifer has no idea what Starbucks is, and Diavolo is willing to ask a demon to know what Starbucks is to open it to the people of Devildom)

Move Over Oscars, It’s The Pawscars™!
Pauley Perrette and Lou Wegner Host Annual American Humane Association Awards revealing top creature stars of the year; See it today online!LOS ANGELES, CA February 18, 2015 -- Proceed, Oscars!  Now, American Humane Association is showing the REAL champions of the year's top acting awards with all the PAWSCARS ?, honoring the very best animal stars in film and television.  Hosted by TV superstar Pauley Perrette and Lou Wegner, the 2015 American Humane Association PAWSCARS are now available for viewing online at
And the 2015 PAWSCARS visit...Best Puppy Under Stress --"The Interview"
One of the most notorious movies from 2014 has been"The Interview," and its own most adorable star was certainly Wolfie, a King Charles spaniel who appeared in the film.  American Humane Association always made sure Wolfie was kept secure, especially in the middle of all the chaos and action.  He was not near any of the explosions, gunfire, or loud sound -- all that was added in post-production, or a stuffed double was used.  In the boat scenes, Wolfie was always kept strapped-in for safety, while in between takes, he was kept warm with a hot water bottle.
Best Magical Cow -- "Into The Woods"
While"The Interview" didn’t receive any Oscar nominations, this PAWSCAR winner got three Oscar nominations too.  "Into The Woods" is Disney’s variant of the Stephen Sondheim fairy tale mash-up musical.  The award for Best Magical Cow belongs to “Milky White” played by animal actor Tug.  In the film, Jack trades his household ’s white cow for magic beans.  From the scene where Jack milks her, American Humane Association Certified Animal Safety Representatives ? proved just off camera ensuring she stood still and Jack was taught the way to milk the cow before trying it .  In the scene where Tug is eating strange things like hair and old shoes, she was actually fed edible replacements and at the scene where she awakens it was not her at all, it was a fake squirt bunny.
Greatest Speeches Performance --"Dolphin Tale 2"
In this sequel to"Dolphin Tale," Winter’s companion Savannah, dies of old age and the aquarium has only 30 days to find Winter a new mate.  Once an injured baby dolphin can be found stranded on a sandbar, they name her Hope from the “hope” which she'll become Winter’s new companion.  American Humane Association assessed all swimming places for potential hazards and saw that the dolphins never worked over an hour without a break.  When audiences watched Savannah lying at the base of the tank, it was not a true dolphin, but an animatronic prop.
Best Chase Sequence --"Sex Tape"
In this movie, Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz attempt to track down their personal sex tape which has inadvertently been sent to their pals.  As Segal is looking one buddy ’s residence, he encounters a German shepherd -- performed by both Nicki and King -- and the chase is on; American Humane Association Certified Animal Safety Representatives were on set for those scenes.  At the treadmill gag, the machine was never running as soon as the dog was on it; stuffed animals and CGI were used for all of the dangerous parts and the full scene was assembled in post-production.
Best Supporting Equine -- "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"
"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is part of a hugely successful franchise that frequently gets awards for its visual effects.  It wins a PAWSCAR, not for its apes, but for a horse called Dale ridden from the apes' leader, Caesar.  It looks like he -- and another Apes -- are riding bareback but that is just another example of movie magic.  The actors playing the apes on horseback used saddles, so Dale and the other horses had been dotted with particular effects markers which allowed the saddles to be eliminated in post-production.  American Humane Association made sure those markers were non-toxic and they also had the horses fitted with rubber hooves for scenes if they were on sidewalk.  In scenes in which there was gunfire, flames, or explosions, the horses were filmed separately from this action.  Even when they jumped over"fire," the horses were only leaping over a 1 foot high bar with flickering lights.
Greatest Young Animal Performer(s ) ) --"The Fall"
"The Fall" is a stressed cop play notable for being James Gandolfini’s closing film.  At the heart of its story is a pit bull pup named Rocco.  Since puppies grow up so quickly, the production had to use three individual dogs, Puppers, and Ice -- to maintain age continuity.  Because different dogs were utilized to perform the exact same character, some make-up was required to make them all match.  American Humane Association made sure that the makeup utilized was nontoxic.  Certified Animal Safety Representatives ensured that none of the pups were overworked, asked to do anything outside of their capabilities, and that they had a secure and comfortable surroundings in place and off.
Finest Ensemble --"Wild"
This award may appear to be an odd choice considering that the film is about Reese Witherspoon’s personality hiking the Pacific Crest Trail .  But she’s not alone, and across the way she encounters a horse played by Muffet, a fox played by Dharma, a rattlesnake played with Fred, a puppy played by Tess, a bunny played with Sport, and even a llama played by Taiga.  American Humane Association Certified Animal Safety Representatives assessed every place where the animals worked and supervised the scenes to be sure none were placed in damage ’s way.  In the scene where frogs are released on to Witherspoon, the region was surrounded with an individual foot-high barrier so that none of them got away and 40 hens were kept safe.
This season, American Humane Association's"No Animals Were Harmed " program celebrates 75 years since the sole official film-industry sanctioned group ensuring that the humane protection, safety and welfare of animal actors on the sets of movies, tv shows, and commercial shoots.  Each year the program manages the protection of over 100,000 animal actors on more than 2,000 places from the U.S. and around the globe.  In honor of this special anniversary, American Humane Association represented on the history of animal actors and requested America who its favorite cat and dog celebrities of all time were.  With 2,527 votes, the results have been....
Best Dog Star of all Time -- Lassie
This lovable collie's been around for at least 75 years.  Her first movie was"Lassie Come Home" with Elizabeth Taylor in her first starring role.  Taylor was paid $100 per week, but Lassie got $250.  There have been many more films since then in addition to a very successful television set.  Lassie was the very first monster celebrity to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the first inductee to the Animal Actors Hall of Fame.  She's a long relationship with American Humane Association, winning 11 of its Animal Television Star Awards, the PATSYs.
Top Cat Star of Time -- Sassy
This Himalayan kitty starred in Disney’s"Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey" and the sequel,"Homeward Bound 2: Lost in San Francisco."  In both films, Sassy was played by a cat named Tiki and voiced by Oscar winner Sally Field.
Finally, a very special Lifetime Achievement Award was given to....
Lifetime Diva Achievement Winner -- Crystal
This cherished capuchin monkey was a creature star for 18 years starring in over 25 movies such as the"Night At The Museum" series,"The Hangover: Part two,""American Pie," and the"Dr. Doolittle" movies, in addition to tv shows, and advertisements.  1 amazing truth about Crystal is that she is a rescue animal.  Crystal is far from the only rescue creature working now: roughly 80 percent of the dogs and cats that you see on the large and small screen are rescues or adopted from predators.  This fighter is so beloved that the late Robin Williams called her"his favourite leading lady."
"Our 2015 Pawscars champions are truly worthy of the honor for all they've done to entertain us not only over the last year, but indeed, in Lassie's instance, for decades and decades," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Association's president and CEO.  "Animal stars really are such an significant part the movies and TV shows we see every day and this year's PAWSCARS are our distinctive way of paying tribute to the rich history of animal actors.  Our deepest thanks to Pauley Perrette and Lou Wegner for co-hosting this year's series and to everybody who voted for their favourite cat and dog stars of all time."
To give audiences the inside scoop on even more of the Garbos and Gables of animal actors, a brand new publication was published together with the 75th anniversary of the"No Animals Were Harmed" app.  American Humane Association President and CEO Dr. Robin Ganzert composed and published the book"Animal Stars: Behind the Scenes with Your Favorite Animal Actors," with Allen and Linda Anderson, the husband-and-wife founders of the Angel Animals Network.  Featuring a foreword by"America's Veterinarian," Dr. Marty Becker,"Animal Stars" provides a peek at the fascinating world of animals and animal trainers in today's movie and television industry -- along with the celebrities with whom they operate.  Proceeds from the sale of this publication support American Humane Association's lifesaving work and programs protecting America's kids and animals.  Dr. Ganzert traveled the country on a book registering for"Animal Stars" last autumn.  To watch the full 2015 PAWSCARS, please visit, see them on Facebook at or @americanhumane on Twitter.  Media can acquire broadcast-quality footage in  To learn more concerning the"No Animals Were Harmed " program, including reviews of the films it has tracked through time, please visit

Favourite films from 2017
1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi Directed by Rian Johnson
Tumblr media
Star Wars fans suck, and I’m so happy to see Disney wrench the franchise from their greasy paws and deliver it to a general audience. Rian Johnson picks up where J. J. Abrams left off by fleshing out the character development of the new franchise leads. Poe learns hard lessons about sacrifice. Rey and Kylo’s complex relationship is given more layers. Even the oft-criticized Finn and Rose subplot is an important bit of character development for Finn to gain unconditional courage. The movie is highlighted by standout performances from Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley, a career best Mark Hamill and an iconic turn from Laura Dern. Rian Johnson delivers rousing action sequences (_that _throne room scene) and emotional highlights. Accompanied by polished sound design, visual (and practical) effects, and John Williams doing what he does best, The Last Jedi is one of the franchises best. It brings the franchise into a new era, reinstating the true spirit of Star Wars- that anyone can be a hero, as long as we look to the stars and hope
2. Lady Bird Directed by Greta Gerwig
Tumblr media
It’s hard to stand out in the field of coming of age movies, but Greta Gerwig manages to do it and tell a story that is simultaneously unique and relevant. The often-ignored daughter-mother relationship is given full attention, exploring some poignant moments in middle age and young adulthood equally well. This is an incredible script that makes every plot detail and situation count, giving the actors a lot to work with. Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf deliver in spades, playing off each other with incredibly nuanced performances. Gerwig performs marvellously, allowing her actors to find the moments of humour and melancholy in her script, and creating a visually pleasing movie to boot. That she manages to do this all in her directorial debut is a remarkable achievement.
3. Logan Directed by James Mangold
Tumblr media
Hugh Jackman is given a great vehicle for his final performance as Wolverine. Adapted from Mark Millar’s Old Man Logan, the movie hugely surpasses its source material. While it maintains the gritty sense of violence from the graphic novel, its emotional substance is much more… substantial. Logan is a superhero film that finds a distinctive voice both in terms of its visuals and its temperament. Its characters aren’t simply grappling with “doing the right thing” but with debility, lethargy, loneliness and remorse. Jackman and Patrick Stewart explore these themes expertly. They’re accompanied by Dafne Keen’s standout performance as Laura/X-23 forming an emotional crux to carry the story. It’s a story that stands out from the others in its genre, and one that I certainly consider one of the best.
4. Get Out Directed by Jordan Peele
Tumblr media
In Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, he manages to tell a story that is remarkably relevant and important, without ever losing his distinctive creative voice. Get Out is very much a horror movie, but Peele lends a fair bit of levity whenever he can. He drops scares that are so jarring they’re practically self aware. The movie is sold by Daniel Kaluuya’s incredible lead performance, as we’re left to ponder the sheer ridiculousness of his circumstances, slowly evolving into genuine terror. This movie has a very clear message, and despite its importance if there are those who may complain that it’s too heavy handed, they need only look to it’s masterfully crafted finale. Watching the movie in a crowded theatre gives you a shared experience, where we all jump at the same scares, laugh at the same jokes, but most importantly feel the injustice that presents itself at the end, and cheer for the twist. It’s this shared experience that is Peele’s master stroke. A perfectly enjoyable finale that leaves us pondering the very real message of the film.
5. Wonder Woman Directed by Patty Jenkins
Tumblr media
This is the most important superhero film since 1976’s Superman. Bringing to life the most iconic female superhero of all time took a long time to happen but it delivers in spades. Patty Jenkins has given the DCU it’s finest film yet, establishing a convincing mythos with interesting characters. Amidst DC’s penchant for dark brooding characters, Diana is a breath of fresh air: a hero that is compassionate and optimistic, even slightly naive. This lends to a truly compelling character arc that allows her to learn firsthand how complicated “the world of man” is. Gal Gadot commands the lead role expertly. She is the most convincing superhero performance since Christopher Reeve, and just like him it’s to bring to life an icon- a role model that she will forever be associated with.
6. Blade Runner 2049 Directed by Denis Villenueve
Tumblr media
It is truly incredible that a sequel made 25 years after its predecessor can maintain the same tone and feel of the original, while lending a new creative voice. The original Blade Runner is one of sci-fi’s most contemplative stories, and it’s incredible that 2049 doesn’t do anything to damage this aura. It asks important questions while expanding on the franchise’s greater theme of what it means to be human. Denis Villeneuve is quickly becoming one of the most distinctive visual filmmakers currently working in Hollywood, and with this movie and Arrival it’s clear to see why. Hans Zimmer along with Benjamin Wallfisch manages to deliver some of his best work in years with a soundtrack that pays homage to Vangelis’s iconic original score. And then there’s the legendary Roger Deakins-lighting each scene with a painterly stroke to add a bit of nuance to already strong performances.
7. Thor: Ragnarok Directed by Taika Waititi
Tumblr media
Perhaps more than any director in the MCU, Taika Waititi delivers his own distinctive creative voice to his entry in the franchise. While its easy to get carried away by the stunning 80’s visuals and synth score from Mark Mothersbaum, it’s Waiiti’s signature wit and charm that really shine through. He makes Thor, Loki and Hulk (and Banner) more likeable than they’ve ever been in the MCU and introduces new characters like Valkyrie and the Grandmaster that are instantly noteworthy. Stellar performances from practically the whole cast help to sell this, and we’re left with a movie that fully entertains while gearing us up for the MCU’s next big offering.
8. The Post Directed by Steven Spielberg
Tumblr media
Amidst all the hoopla surrounding Ready Player One, Spielberg manages to sneak away and make a movie with his dream team of Tom Hanks, John Williams and Janusz Kaminski. And include Meryl Streep. I mean, just on paper this looked to be a sure-fire success, and shockingly it doesn’t disappoint. It is absolutely a movie that speaks volumes about the current political climate in the United States, but it also honours the importance of investigative journalism and freedom of the press. Hanks delivers an incredible performance, but it is purely to support Streep’s powerhouse portrayal of Katharine Graham. She charts a fascinating and incredibly relevant character arc to show us just how important it is to find your voice and your courage in the face of prejudice.
9. The Big Sick Directed by Michael Showalter
Tumblr media
Being such an incredible comedic talent, Kumail Nanjiani is finally given a chance to create a personal story. Along with his wife Emily V. Gordon they deliver a comedy movie that is so much more than just funny. It is deeply affecting, introducing us to two leads that are charming and worth rooting for. Culturally, relationally and physically, they contend with serious struggles that makes their character arcs incredibly meaningful. This is one of the strongest screenplays of the year and a testament to passionate storytelling.
10. The Shape of Water Directed by Guillermo Del Toro
Tumblr media
The Shape of Water is very much Guillermo Del Toro at his best- telling an extremely humanistic story under a fantastical lens. As per most of his movies, it features an isolated hero searching for self-actualization. Mirroring this character with that of a monster, he subverts the idea of abnormal for a sense of harmony. He trusts his audience to be empathic, to see the benevolence in the creature and the compassion in Eliza. This is balanced by his clear depiction of immorality in Michael Shannon’s Colonel Stickland. Supported by incredible compositions from Alexandre Desplat and ethereal cinematography from Dan Laustsen, Del Toro once again proves that he is one of Hollywood’s most affecting storytellers and that even the most high concept fantasy stories can be poignant ones.
Honorable Mentions
War for the Planet of the Apes (Directed by Matt Reeves), God’s Own Country (Directed by Francis Lee), Mudbound (Directed by Dee Rees), Call Me By Your Name (Directed by Luca Guadagnino), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Directed by Martin McDonagh), The Florida Project (Directed by Sean Baker), Phantom Thread (Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson), Logan Lucky (Directed by Steven Soderbergh), The Disaster Artist (Directed by James Franco), Wind River (Directed by Taylor Sheridan)

Anatoliy Bystrikov, Marshall Ever, Jon Firman
Addicted to Heroin and tortured by children, 8 Ball the Clown tries to end his life but he just can't do it, so he tracks down the kids who have been crank calling him - hell- bent that they feel the pure pleasure and pain of his God.
Tumblr media
Blood Drinkers, The (1964)
Ronald Remy, Amalia Fuentes, Eddie Fernandez
Severin Films Presents the Blood Drinkers - Hemisphere's 1964 Vampire Masterpiece!
Five years after Terror Is A Man became the first international horror hit from the Philippines, producer Cirio Santiago (The Big Bird Cage) and director Gerry de Leon (Brides Of Blood) delivered Hemisphere's next landmark shocker: Ronald Remy (Mad Doctor Of Blood Island) - in a performance Critic After Dark calls "perhaps the most compelling incarnation since Christopher Lee" - stars in this orgy of gothic terror and Filipino pulp, complete with rubber bats, hunchback henchmen, theremin, whippings, rampant Catholicism and radical color tinting that remains unnerving more than half a century later. Amalia Fuentes (Curse Of The Vampires) co-stars in "one of the more unusual vampire movies you'll ever see" (DVD Drive-In) - also known as Blood Is The Color Of Night and Vampire People - now scanned from the only complete 35mm print known to exist.
Tumblr media
Blood Lake (1987)
Doug Barry, Angela Darter, Andrea Adams
THE FINEST VACATION FROM HELL EVER CAPTURED ON VHS, RESCUED FROM THE ORIGINAL 1'' MASTER TAPE! Blood Lake is the most fascinating -- and stupefying -- shot-on-video slasher that ever escaped from 1987. A group of unhinged party animals, including adolescent horn-dog Lil' Tony, embark on a weekend trip filled with Jet Skis, a keg of Busch, and an extended game of quarters. But look out! There's a supernatural killer on the loose who wears cowboy boots and a silk shirt with a rose stitched on it! Made by real-life friends from Oklahoma on a real-life vacation, Blood Lake is a rewardingly lethal collision of '80s slasher video-vomit and twisted cinéma vérité madness. From false metal soundtrack hits to gratuitous scenes of people sleeping, this might be the only movie in history capable of receiving a stamp of approval from both David Lee Roth and Andy Warhol.
Tumblr media
Brain of Blood (1971)
Grant Williams, Kent Taylor, John Bloom
Severin Films Presents Brain Of Blood - The Al Adamson Shock/Schlock Classic !
By 1971, drive-ins across America were clamoring for a new Blood Island movie. But with de Leon/Romero busy creating the 'machete maidens' genre, Hemisphere instead turned to writer/producer/distributor Sam Sherman (Satan's Sadists) and director Al Adamson (Blood Of Dracula's Castle) to deliver a comparable saga of gruesome shocks and mad doctor mayhem. The result - the only Hemisphere production to be shot outside the Philippines - remains the insane epitome of low-budget '70s horror and one of Adamson's most infamous epics. Kent Taylor (Brides Of Blood), Grant Williams (The Incredible Shrinking Man), Regina Carrol (Angels' Wild Women), John Bloom (The Incredible 2 Headed Transplant), Angelo Rossitto (Freaks) and Zandor Vorkov (Dracula vs. Frankenstein) star in this "great bloody film" (Grindhouse Database) - also known as The Creature's Revenge and The Oozing Skull - now featuring a new 2k CRI scan.
Tumblr media
Curse Of La Llorona, The (2007)
Joel Bryant, Regan Forston, Elizabeth Osbourn
A family finds the Mexican folk tale of the Weeping Lady, the Curse of La Llorona - a paranormal specter that returns from the dead to torment the living - is all too real in this gory horror film! When a failed suicide attempt places young, beautiful Hana in the cross hairs of the demonic La Llorona, her family members try to save her from a grisly end. Featuring an Spanish/International cast, this is a haunting tale of one family's fight against evil forces darker than they could possibly imagine.
Tumblr media
Curse of the Vampires (1966)
Ben Feleo, Pierre L. Salas
Severin Films Presents the Curse Of The Vampires - Geraldo de Leon's 1966 Vampire Classic!
In this pseudo-sequel to his masterpiece The Blood Drinkers, director Gerry de Leon (Terror Is A Man, Brides Of Blood) delves even deeper into themes of lust, guilt, faith and redemption within an aristocratic family cursed by vampirism. But this time, he adds rich gothic dollops of torture, incest, carnal depravity and blackface that "oozes sexual menace, brims with potent cultural metaphors and makes for unusually hypnotic viewing" (Senses Of Cinema). Amalia Fuentes (The Blood Drinkers) and Eddie Garcia (Beast Of Blood) star in this "artfully executed vampire chiller" ( - also released as Whisper To The Wind, Blood Of The Vampires and Creatures Of Evil - from "The Father of Philippine Horror" (DVD Drive- In) and now scanned in 2k from the only surviving film elements.

Iguana With The Tongue Of Fire, The (1971)
Luigi Pistilli, Dagmar Lassander, Anton Diffring, Valentina Cortese
One of several 'animal-in-the-title' cash- ins released in the wake of Dario Argento's box-office smash The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire is a gloriously excessive giallo that boasts a rogues gallery of perverse characters; violent, fetishized murders, and one of the genre's most nonsensical, red-herring laden plots (which sees almost every incidental character hinted at potentially being the killer). Set in Dublin (a rather surprising giallo setting), Iguana opens audaciously with an acid-throwing, razor- wielding maniac brutally slaying a woman in her own home. The victim's mangled corpse is discovered in a limousine owned by Swiss Ambassador Sobiesky (Anton Diffring, Where Eagles Dare) and a police investigation is launched, but when the murdering continues and the ambassador claims diplomatic immunity, tough ex-cop John Norton (Luigi Pistilli, A Bay of Blood) is brought in to find the killer... Benefitting from a sumptuous score by Stelvio Cipriani (Nightmare City, Death Walks on High Heels) and exuberant supporting performances from Valentina Cortese (The Possessed, Thieves' Highway) and Dagmar Lassander (The Frightened Woman, The Black Cat), The Iguana with the Tongue of Fire is a luridly over-the-top latter-day entry in the filmography of acclaimed director Riccardo Freda (Caltiki - The Immortal Monster, Murder Obsession). An archetypal giallo from the genre's heyday, Freda's film is presented here in a stunning new restoration with a host of newly produced extras.
Tumblr media
La Llorona Curse, The (2013)
Nichole Ceballos, James Ezrin, Ron Gelner, Everardo Guzman
A television crew investigates a home where alleged paranormal sightings of La Llorona (The Crying Woman) have occurred. Soon, the group finds themselves in a life or death fight as one of the world's oldest urban legends comes to life before their eyes.

Severin Films Presents the Hemisphere Box Of Horrors - Beyond Blood Island lives the other Hemisphere Horror Classics - on Blu-ray for the first time ever!
Though best known for their legendary Blood Island Trilogy, the Philippine/U.S. production/distribution company Hemisphere Pictures was also responsible for some of the most provocative and insane films of the '60s and '70s drive-in/grindhouse era. The Blood Drinkers and Curse Of The Vampires are the still- potent masterpieces from The Father of Philippine Horror Gerry de Leon. Brain Of Blood is the all-star Grade Z classic from infamous exploitation auteur Al Adamson. The Black Cat and Torture Chamber Of Dr. Sadism - starring Christopher Lee and Tarzan - are Hemisphere's two most extreme acquisitions for the company's notorious double-feature packages. The films in this collection have all been newly scanned in 2K/4K from the best - and often only - complete elements available.
