Photo: Ryan Pfluger The Spring of 2002 found me fresh out of NYU with a theater degree and an unfinished women’s-studies minor. Ready to take on the world! I wasn’t too worried that I didn’t have a job because I was 100 percent certain that fame of an epic proportion was just around the corner. A celebrity so debilitating that I felt I should savor these last anonymous days. But in the mean and between time, I needed money. A steady employment ship sailed into harbor in the form of a very thin, manic, reflexive documentary filmmaker named Barbara Monette, who’d never made one film. She “needed” a personal assistant, and her main requirement was that I feel comfortable “cheering her on” via speakerphone while she ran on a treadmill at Equinox. Jackpot. It became immediately clear to me that Barbara had an issue with food. I wouldn’t see her eat anything for days at a time. She would drink six cups of coffee, which made her jittery and aggressive and frankly mean. She regularly … [Read more...] about ‘The Relief Outweighed the Regret’
“Disaster Girl” Zoë Roth in 2019. Photo: Noam Galai/Getty Images for BuzzFeed It’s only the spring, and we’ve already hit peak 2021. Zoë Roth, the star of the “Disaster Girl” meme, now a 21-year-old college senior, just sold her viral photo as a non-fungible token to pay off student loans and donate to charity. No, this country does not deserve Gen Z. The infamous meme shows Roth devilishly smirking in front of a house on fire in her neighborhood in North Carolina back in 2007. According to the New York Times , it was a controlled blaze set by firefighters — they even let kids take turns holding the hose. The image of Roth has since taken on a life of its own, becoming a viral reaction meme and edited into disasters like the Titanic. Roth sold the original copy of her meme as a non fungible token for nearly $500,000 in Ether, a form of cryptocurrency, at an auction on Thursday. The Roths retained the copyright and will receive 10 percent of future sales. Roth said she … [Read more...] about ‘Disaster Girl’ Just Sold Her Meme As an NFT to Pay Off Student Loans
THE MITCHELLS VS. THE MACHINES - Abbi Jacobson as “Katie Mitchell”. Cr: ©2021 SPAI. All Rights Reserved. Photo: Netflix If Mike Rianda warms to you, he’ll start laughing at you. His actors mention this, but I learn it for myself on a Zoom call in mid-April, just a few weeks before the 37-year-old’s directorial debut, The Mitchells vs. the Machines , hits Netflix. The animator has what might most easily be described as a chortle, but such a simplification doesn’t even begin to skim the surface of his breathy, high-pitched chuckle. It strikes at random, especially mid-sentence, like when he’s telling me about the likelihood of technology taking over our lives and suddenly emits the loudest, most enthusiastic laugh I’ve heard during the work-from-home era (and possibly beyond). It’s infectious, deeply warm, and maybe even a little chaotic — and it’s just what you’d expect from an artist who has spent the past decade creating some of animation’s most compellingly earnest, … [Read more...] about Director Mike Rianda Wants to Make You Laugh (and Call Your Mom)
