The Week That Was: The Use of Big Words Shall Set You Free

The Week That WasIf you are anything like me — and I hope, for the sake of those around you, that you are not — then you only read Film School Rejects for the pictures. The words within the articles can sometimes be very difficult to decipher. Especially when we let Landon “Thesaurus-saurus” Palmer out of his cage. It’s that college reading level writing that keeps us locked in our niche (read: readership of 12. Hi Mom!). And for most readers (and site publishers), it makes all of our stuff pretty inaccessible. But there are the pictures…

With that in mind, I’d like to focus this entry of The Week That Was on the articles with the best pictures. I’ve also thrown in a few with some fancy wordiness, for good measure. Please enjoy and click around on all of the stuff you missed earlier in the week while you were slowly re-reading Culture Warrior for the 35th time.

Other Things That Happened

Dispatch from Reject HQ

This coming week I will be completing a month-long process that will see Reject HQ move from an undisclosed location in South Austin, Texas to an equally undisclosed location in North Austin. That will limit my presence on the site over the next two weeks or so. Which leaves you stuck with the guys who came up with the new column name “Circle of Jerks.” Come to think of it, you’re in really good hands. If anything, perhaps we’ll let Jeff Hall take over my job for a little while…

Comment of the Week

“There are also two other kinds of people in the world. People who think the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake was a cinematic abortion and Robert Fure.” – from reader Dom on Coroner’s Report: State of Horror

For the record, I don’t think that it’s the government’s place to tell studios what to do with their bodies. There should be no legislation related to cinematic abortions. Robert Fure, on the other hand, is a different story… More on that next week when I hit you back with all the aggressive mediocrity of The Week That Was.
