Frank Ocean | Wisemen

“Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”

— Quentin Tarantino explaining why he didn’t use the song in “Django Unchained.”



The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (Part 1)

You love The Book Thief so much we’re doing two posts! Here’s the first:

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein for a moving wartime friendship

Stay Where You Are and Then Leave by John Boyne for a child trying to make sense of war

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon for a story where books hold the answer

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer for hope against the odds

(for minivinnie, phantasticdanosaur, shadowofemirates)

I love all of these books
