with Gillian Anderson.
I just heard a brit say that our streetcar wires are ugly :( lol
When I used to visit Toronto before moving here, they did stand out as gritty and excessive but honestly I've gotten used to them and I kinda like the vibe they give.
what do you guys think?
Even as it drives around empty costing millions - and its foes fantasize about driving a stake through its heart - a recent analysis found that $1 billion in investments have taken place within a thousand feet of the streetcar line, precisely the promise that won the support of many voters able to see a long game.
Real estate and planning firm Urban Fast Forward, located in Over-the-Rhine, looked at investment data dating back to 2012 when ground was broken on the streetcar line.
I read ASCND my sophomore year of high school and I’m trying to find any line in a book that scares me as much as Blanche’s “I’ve always depended on the kindness of others” line. To this day, my mind wanders falls to that line and I stop dead in my tracks. I want so badly to feel about that about another book.
The thing I loved most about it was the unsaid dynamics between characters. I’m so in love with how it was written, two stories being told at the same time: the obvious story and the power dynamic over Stella and Stan.
I hope that someone knows another book similar to that! Would love to read more about them, thanks!
Streetcars don't seem to be a big topic in this subreddit. So why not talk about it.
Yup. There ya go. Watched this film a few weeks ago and I would have applauded his performance if I could understand a single word that came out of his mouth. The rest of the actors were great, articulate and more importantly, fit in with the production as a whole. Brando stood out like a sore, slurring, thumb and not for good reason. Yes his rage was well played and felt real but in general he was outshone in his acting abilities by Vivien Leigh and Kim Hunter. Who seemed more experienced and were more captivating.
We had to throw on the subtitles because he was impossible to understand. Not to mention the physical acting was all over the place at times, yes it was very 'natural' unlike the rest of the theatrical cast but it made the experience ... odd? It was like he just stumbled in from costume without knowing what to do.
Side note, there's the known rumors that he didn't learn off his lines (later career) for a role. Just how are you meant to Method Act and know the character i... keep reading on reddit ➡
Valley Metro just posted on their Facebook/Instagram feeds that they have just finished track installation for the Tempe Streetcar project. They're now moving on to station installation. Excited to see a mass transit project moving forward, especially in Phoenix. The link below is to the project page. Thought some might find this interesting.
He is reading reading a Nazi newspaper, the Volkische Beobachter. A non-Jewish acquaintance sits down next to him and says, "Why on earth are you reading that garbage? It’s so virulently anti-Semitic!” “Look, friend," says the Jew, "I get up early and work hard in a factory all day. When I get home, my wife nags me, the children are badly behaved, my in-laws are awful, and the neighbors hate us. What should I do on my way home, read the Jewish newspaper? ‘Pogrom in Romania' 'Jews Murdered in Poland.' 'New Laws against Jews.' No, sir, a half-hour a day, on the streetcar, I read the Beobachter. 'Jews Are the World’s Capitalists,' 'Jews Control Russia,' 'Jews Rule in England.' That's me they're talking about. A half-hour a day I'm somebody. Leave me alone, friend.”
A Streetcar Named Desire was the result of a confluence of great talent. Elia Kazan directed it for Warner Brothers in 1951. The screenplay was written by Tennessee Williams who had also written the original play. The scene, sometimes affectionately referred to as the Napoleonic Code Scene, stared Kim Hunter, and Marlon Brando.
The scene serves partially as an exposition to further familiarize the audience with Blanche and her back story. She is not present, she’s in the tub, but her suitcase is a stand-in for her. It is full of illusory elegance and affectation. Her sister, Stella, defends Blanche’s carefully folded things while the sweaty, brutish Stanley tries to roughly. rifle through them. It creates not only emotional tension but seems to almost foreshadow physical assault
The heart of the scene is a two-minute single shot where the camera keeps a medium distance and only pivots slightly to keep the characters in the frame. The scene, like the entire film, retains some of the q... keep reading on reddit ➡
One of my pet interests is tramways - especially the streetcars that once ran throughout the D.C. Area. I know most of the current bus routes follow the old streetcar routes and DDOT posted this tremendous map from the 1940s but it's still a little hard to make out the routes, especially the ones that ran out to the nearby suburbs (I was born and partially raised in Silver Spring and NW DC along what was the 7's route on Georgia Avenue).
It's a part of my hometown's history and it's a shame the whole system was undone and paved over. But since the current DC Streetcar has been having a hard time getting off the ground, it would be nice to at least have a nice, clear map of what the area once had.
I was watching The Simpsons epsiode, " A Streetcar named Marge" and thought, " Hey! I've never seen 'Streetcar' before. I should probably watch that." It was incredible. I couldn't tell if Viven Leigh was acting or not. And Marlon Brando? Mmm. So fine. I'll be watching it again to get a better understanding of the movie. I cannot understand Southern accent very well. I started watching the "Official Young Vic's A Streetcar Named Desire" with Gillian Anderson and Vanessa Kirby. I love Anderson's Southern accent.
Like the title says, does anyone have any good resources about this part of the city's history? I'm interested in learning more about the streetcar system Springfield had from the late 1860s into tht 1930s. I've found a few articles on Sangamon Link and the Illinois Times, but nothing too in-depth, especially as it relates to routes and service maps.
Hi everyone! This is a monologue i recently did from a Streetcar Named Desire, I've recently started experimenting a bit more with the filming aspect of it and I would love to hear your feedback on that and the overall video :)
Hi, I'm looking to get two things done. I would pay between 15 and 60 usd. And I would be okay with a sprite sheet rather than an animation, depending on costs.
The first is a streetcar(references will be included) that moves into frame on the left, stops in the middle of the screen(1080p) and picks up a passenger(sitting on bench). Then leaves out of frame on the right. I would want it to be 32-35px high and upscaled 4-5x. Also, the passenger would be a black silhouette and wouldn't need to be too detailed. And I would want the passenger to walk in from the left and sit down, reseting the scene, but only if the budget allows it
The next one would be a raccoon that comes out of a trash bin(references will be included) facing forward, then looks left, right, and up. The raccoon would be 1/4 or half way out with it's paws on the bin. I don't want any fluid animation and would be okay with 4 sprites(forward, left, right, up) of the racoon. I would want the racoon sprite to be over 35 p... keep reading on reddit ➡
