The Importance of Food In Quentin Tarantino Films
Whether it’s a five dollar milkshake, some pie, or a tasty burger, this video essay by Daniel Goodbaum combines a conversation between Tarantino and Elvis Mitchel on The Treatment with some of the more appetizing scenes from the director’s films that showcases how the ritualistic nature of sharing a meal can both advance plot and establish power roles between characters.

Ah, to be a kid again. In some ways, being an editor at The Toy Book lets me gets close. Last week, we spent several days reviewing and testing product submissions for our spring edition of The Toy Insider. Over the weekend, a friend compared this to “Big,” a movie in which a boy magically [...]

Earlier today I received an email ordering me to remove 5 image captures of new Poppy Parker dolls which show the SAME EXACT DOLL THAT WE ARE ALLOWED TO POST ON BLOGS, FLICKR, ETC. I was threatened with possibly not being able to attend webinars in the future. I honestly was a bit shocked at the harshness of the email. It's also funny (weird, sad, stupid) because tmy blog post in question about
the Poppy dolls was a very positive post which urged people to hurry up
and shop. This will not happen again.
I was on the road when the email came in and I responded immediately that as soon as I get home, I would delete them. That's all I wrote. Their next email told me to hurry up! I am not kidding.
Yes. W Club members who signed up to see the webinar did have to sign a non-disclosure agreement which included filming the presentation or copying photos and showing them prior to a certain date.
I waited until several other bloggers published these new pictures from the W Club site. This was also after dealers were permitted to open sales and had published pictures. These were the same exact pictures we saw during the webinar with one difference. Some of the pictures were combined into a montage as I show below. I made this picture from the allowed images. It is the same as the image seen during the webinar - I know because I captured it on my computer. God forbid I post it here to show you but if you email me, and I am not busy, I will send it so you can compare. My angle of the insert is a slight bit different.
I had no idea I was doing something wrong because I know they read my blog and I don't cross the lines they've drawn in the sand regarding this stuff.
Send in the FR police. My publicity isn't the right type of publicity.

Me thinks it's time to stop with this company that watches me like a hawk. I think they would be very happy if I stopped buying their dolls and went away.
Maybe this post is breaking a rule, too. OMG. I'll keep you all posted.
"Blog triumphantly," said a friend a few years ago.
If you are reading this, I will never forget that.
