Ah, I love it. Anthony Head playing yet another pierced Rupert.

All right, Rourke, let’s hear that Irish accent.
UPDATE: Dang, son! Rourke’s bringing his a-game. That’s a pretty gosh darn ok accent. Very rarely can an American pull off any form of an Irish accent.
GANGSTER SQUAD (2013)
DIRECTED | Ruben Fleischer WRITTEN | Paul Lieberman (book), Will Beall (screenplay) MUSIC | Steve Jablonsky CINEMATOGRAPHY | Dion Beebe STARRING | Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie, Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Giovanni Ribisi, Jon Polito
The cast alone makes this movie most definitely watchable, but the story is just okay. At a certain point, the action sequences start to numb the viewer, but I could watch Brolin and Gosling on screen all day.
MY RATING | 3/5

Gal pal who was studio manager right along with me in our special internship-esque class this semester got me the bestest gift of all: MOVIES. One of many, many things I received yesterday that contributed to tears when I got home.
hanberlin asked: Hey, you don't know me but I just got accepted in the graphic design program at Sac state. This is my 2nd attempt in applying. What advice do you have for me in the fall when I take 120, 122 and 125? I'm really excited about it but nervous because everyone says its insanely rough...if its as bad as people say then ill still stick it out. What projects should I expect? Any more tips? :)
First of all, I have to give you a big CONGRATULATIONS! It’s a great feeling, yeah? I actually think I took a photography class with you, but I may be wrong! :)
Advice I can give is simple, but people rarely seem to work to adhere to it: SLEEP. Get sleep. Eat food. I know that late nights and being stressed and depressed seem to be the norm for the program, but I don’t think I could’ve done it if I went that way. I made sure to get sleep, and when I was feeling frustrated about a project, I walked away from it for a breather and came back to it later. I also know that any time I work late on something, the project is not getting the quality from me it deserves. I also find seriously budgeting my time was what got me through. When I could see on paper that 4:00 - 6:00pm was work for 125, then 6:00 - 7:30pm was 120, somehow I was able to stick within that time frame and be more efficient. You just have to develop your intuition when it comes to knowing what projects will take what amount of time.
So, if you remember that you’re a human being and you need certain things like food, water, and sleep to function, it’ll help you a lot more along the way. It’s an extremely challenging program, but I would say you hit your stride senior year. I would say that for 125, embrace all of the changes that are presented to you. It’s kind of like hitting a wall because you completely recraft your way of thinking, of process, and of creative output in that class. Main tip, though: be confident in knowing that if you’re open to constructive criticism and a complete rehaul of how you work, you’ll be a great asset to the program and to your own future!
Again, congratulations, and keep me posted on how everything goes!
The final hour count of all work done outside of each respective class. Needless to say, this has obviously been my busiest semester. Wowzers to the 30th power.

I have a nice little gingerbread cottage in Oak Bluffs for one week, and I fly out Tuesday. HURRAH.
