Currently sitting in Denver, Colorado at the airport because I decided to give up my seat at 8am for a $150 credit voucher which turned out to be $500.
I was honestly ok with $150, but I will take the $500 haha. I haven’t blogged in my real blog in awhile and have yet to figure out the ins and outs of it because I’ve invested in a real journal. It’s helped me destress soooooo much. Probably why I haven’t been that inspired to write out a new blog.
This was a much needed mini-vacay and great reminder of how awesome my family is. Last night was supposed to be the coming together or two families, but I think my family was too ratchet for the other family to handle lol.
Anyway, I’m going to read. I was going to read for school, but I decided to read for pleasure. I think this is a great opportunity to remember to relax and enjoy the little things in life. Enjoy your day and each other folks.
Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel
Speaking their lines vs the final product
Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?
Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a dedicated motherfucking professional.
Vin Diesel made you fall in love with a character who said 4 words. The CGI brought his words to visual life, but they’d be meaningless without his amazing command of voice.
Basically vin Diesel had the challenge of:
"OK, this is the message you’re trying to convey"
"But you can only ONLY say I am Groot”
Because every time Groot says “I am Groot” he means something and vin Diesel had to convey that message as best he could with only those 3 words through inflection, emphasis, and emotion.
And this was his first job after suddenly losing one of his closest friends.
