"I don’t know if I necessarily learned a direct thing from it all, but it was a realization like “We can do this.” There’s always that idea when you’re growing up or are just starting in an industry that you aren’t going to make it. There are people “over there”, and you’re over here. Even when we got nominated for the Woodie, I was thinking that that was crazy, and good enough in itself, but to win it was even crazier. These are award shows I’ve been watching my whole life, and you can actually get it. It continues to open my mind to possibilities, the limits are very arbitrary."

100 behind-the-scenes photos that span the entire production of Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’ Great job, Larry Wright!

“European filmmakers, including George Sluizer (director of ‘Spoorloos,’ aka ‘The Vanishing’ and ‘Utz’), Peter Delpeut (‘Felice… Felice…’) and Harry Kümel (‘Daughters of Darkness,’ ‘Malpertuis’) discuss the films and famously obsessive work practices of Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick thought Sluizer’s ‘The Vanishing’ the most terrifying film he had seen—even more frightening than ‘The Shining,’ and it led to Kubrick ‘phoning the Dutch filmmaker to discuss editing. There is also an interview with Johanna ter Steege, who was set to star in Kubrick’s so-called ‘lost Holocaust’ movie ‘The Aryan Papers,’ which was dropped after Steven Spielberg made ‘Schindler’s List.’ It ends with (who else?) Malcolm McDowell in performance, recounting a tale of working with Kubrick.” —Paul Gallagher, Dangerous Minds

In the third episode of his fantastic Cosmos series, Neil deGrasse Tyson reminds us of how pattern-recognition both fuels our creativity and makes our minds mislead us.
(via explore-blog)

"

The human talent for pattern-recognition is a two-edged sword: We’re especially good at finding patterns, even when they aren’t really there — something known as false pattern-recognition.

We hunger for significance — for signs that our personal existence is of special meaning to the universe. To that end, we’re all too eager to deceive ourselves and others.
