Topics I've Started

Film Struck

Yesterday, 11:40 AM

We don't really have in between threads here like we do over at HDTGM but I wanted to see if anyone here was using Film Struck and if they liked it. I'm considering dropping one of the many movie subscription services I have and getting it because they have a shit ton of classic movies that you can't see anywhere else (and appears like a few even covered here on Unspooled).

I have a friend that works for the social media team at TCM and Film Struck so she's been talking it up non-stop but I know that it's not just because she works for them but because she really loves their service, but I do also want some opinions from people not on their payroll lol.

A Love Letter to Paul and June

10 November 2017 - 10:11 AM

Paul and June,

I wanted to tweet this at y'all originally, but as Twitter can be a vacuum of noise it is understandable that things can fall through the cracks and never be read. So here I am on a forum that I know Paul visits frequently in the hopes that this can find its way to y'all.

The last couple of weeks have been quite the whirlwind when it comes to news. Everyone has to know what I'm talking about but just in case I'll do a quick tl;dr - After Harvey Weinstein was found out for being the sexual predator that he is, and subsequently famous name after famous name was found out as well there has become this unprecedented time where women can finally feel safe to talk about the horrible traumas in their lives at the result of sexual assault.

I am no exception to this. For the first time in maybe ever I felt comfortable speaking on the times where I was cornered in a bar and fondled as if I was some prize turkey needing to be examined by men. These aren't the only times I've experienced sexual assault but if felt comforting to know that I wasn't alone and I could speak on these topics without being attacked (because, yes, at one point I was told that I "misread" situations in which I was actually scared of something worse happening).

But I don't want to make this about me, I want to make this about y'all. I have been looking through Twitter these last few weeks, reading everything my timeline shows me, and have been so fucking ecstatic to see the two of you take such a bold stand in these times and never once back down. June, you in particular have become my hero with the way you comment on things and the way you comment on particular wording. Even this morning I noticed a certain extremely famous comedian made a comment on another certain famous comedian and you were there to question the wording of the comment. You fill me with hope that you don't have to be scared to call people out on their bull shit and us as women can live in this world without fear.

I just wanted to thank the both of you for being kind and generous and fucking BAD ASS and for creating this beautiful podcast that has become one of my faaavorite things in the whole world. And for standing up for what's right and making me feel less alone.

Thank you Paul. Thank you June. And thank you Jason cause I know even though you're not on Twitter you've got to be feeling the same way.

Much love from an overly devoted fan,
Taylor Anne
