Welcome to your Friday Links!
Also: in two more months it will be Summer. 🙂

“Lately, Hollywood has been taking so much shit for rampant sexism and racism. The prevailing theme: white men dominate movie roles.
But it’s all rhetoric and no data, which gets us nowhere in terms of having an informed discussion. How many movies are actually about men?”
This is another impressive examination of data which breaks down film dialogue from 2000 screenplays by gender and age. The way they use graphs to display this information is honestly inspiring.
“Joe Patten was born on February 9th, 1927, and he lives in Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, which was opened on December 25th, 1929. Thirty-five years ago, Joe was granted rent-free, lifetime occupancy of a deluxe Moorish-style apartment by the Fox Theatre trustees.”
Mr. Patten unfortunately passed away on April 7th, 2016, but I mean LOOK at this apartment (and theatre, and everything.)
This has been another Friday Links release. Thanks for playing along at home everybody.
Have a lovely weekend.
