DO IT FOR GIANT AMOUNTS OF JUSTICE
Philadelphia filmmaker, Brittany Rafalak, is raising funds for a short film.
Consumption is about Corinne, who grapples with the feeling of hunger in a world where it is considered barbaric to satiate oneself by eating. The setting is a near-futuristic society where food has been outlawed.
Consumption will be filmed in Mt. Airy and surrounding areas. It will feature local actors and filmmakers as cast and crew. The film will also be screened in Philadelphia, accompanied by a live, improvised musical score. Rafalak says, “The purpose of the live score is to explore the relationship between music and film. Movie scores have a tendency to guide audiences and tell us what to feel. In this case, musicians will be inspired by on-screen images, and for the audience, the film and music will be manifested simultaneously.” The live band will be a jazz-influenced quintet.
Rafalak’s fundraising goal is $7600.00. The money will be spent on service fees from storyboarding to sound mastering. Other costs include paying for equipment rental, props, and location fees. The Indiegogo campaign offers creative perks including professional music lessons and filmmaking/crowd funding insights. To contribute to the fundraiser, click on the link below.
To learn about the film’s progress you can visit www.brittanyrafalak.com and navigate to “Work in Progress.” You can also access Consumption on other social media platforms such as Instagram (consumptionfilm) and Pinterest (Consumption…a Film).
How Do Court Reporters Keep Straight Faces?
These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.
ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, ‘Where am I, Cathy?’
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan!
ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.
ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there.
ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.
ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year.
ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?
WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can’t remember which.
ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?
WITNESS: Forty-five years.
ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget..
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn’t it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn’t know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: He’s 20, much like your IQ.
ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Are you shitting me?
ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?
WITNESS: Getting laid
ATTORNEY: She had three children , right?
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?
ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death..
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.
ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I’m going with male.
ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
ATTORNEY: Doctor , how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.
ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.
ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
WITNESS: Are you qualified to ask that question?
ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.
The idea is sound but it could have been executed better in a few areas.

I rarely even bother arguing with tumblr’s own little racist community and usually my strategy is just to ignore their existence but I’m bored and I like traditional clothes- anyway: If you guys actually think that by googling “niqab” and then posting 8 images you are proving anything about the ethnicities in question or Muslims in general, anything relevant at all, then hah. Hahahhahahahaahahah. Like, I can imagine that whoever created this photo thought it’s some kind of masterpiece and probably sat there mumbling alone in a dark room “LoOK I hAvE pRoVEN thAT THE IsLaMS R STuPID I aM a GENIUS!!1” but ffs this is embarrassing and the only thing it proves is your almost laughable ignorance on Iraqi, Saudi, Afghan, Iranian, Pakistani, Syrian, Yemeni and Egyptian culture. Will you see some women wearing some sort of religious headwear in all of these countries? Sure you will, and frankly I don’t think they give a fuck about random people on tumblr not thinking they’re 〜diverse〜 enough. It doesn’t mean that every single woman from any of these ethnic groups are niqab-wearers or that these people don’t have a history, culture and heritage of their own, aren’t unique and don’t deserve to be recognized as such. Idk I could keep talking about this but it seems like a waste of time but here:
Egyptian clothes from a fashion show organized by Shahira Mehrez (who works on the revival of Egyptian clothing,she’s collected Egyptian traditional clothes&jewelry from different parts of the country)
Girl from Yemen
Pakistani bridal wear
This is from a show in Baghdad, clothes inspired by Iraqi folklore
Syrian clothes in a shop
(+ Major regional differences within every country.) This post also makes no sense because anyone who has visited the European countries in question knows that traditional clothes isn’t exactly something people usually wear on a daily basis. Go to Denmark for example; it’s quite rare to see people actually wearing traditional dresses all the time, they are often reserved for special occasions or for folk dancers. Like you’re more likely to see people wearing jeans and a t-shirt?? I could easily make a photoset of Danish, Austrian, Finnish, Spanish, Italian, German, British and Scottish people all wearing the same clothes and based on that go claiming that these people don’t have their own culture and traditions and aren’t diverse or whatever, but I won’t because it’s obviously false. Anyone who knows anything about Europe knows that these “All European countries are the same” “Europeans don’t have a culture of their own” statements going around are just weird.
Btw I feel like I have to mention that the photo representing Finnish clothing is not Finnish at all. As suspected, y’all don’t know shit about the precious European ethnicities either lol. The woman in the photo is actually Turkish which makes this 10 times funnier to me since you know, Turkey is a country with a quite large *gasp* Muslim population. Here is the source for the photo. Congratulations, not only did you fail to prove that the different ethnicities of which some or a majority are Muslims don’t have a culture of their own but you don’t know anything about the different European peoples you pretend to care about so much lmao.
If you guys actually at some point in your lives take any real interest in Finland instead of just using it as some little pawn in your shitty racist posts, here’s some examples of Finnish clothing

Reblogging for the massive ass kicking. As well as the freaking Pakistani bridal wear ohmygoodnessitssopretty
To be racist is one thing, but to be racist and misrepresent the culture you’re glorifying? y’all need a lesson in humility. Kudos to this gorgeous post and the enlightening experience it provides.
A Fox News panel discussing the ‘war on women’ features four men and no women.
This, in one image, is the essence of the problem with the war on women. Four straight white guys “debating” how women aren’t oppressed. Fox News isn’t even trying.
