The Tarantino World is vast
Yeah we know there are stories out there about how Quentin wants to make a RomCom, but there are always stories out there about what it is that Quentin wants to make (supposedly or not only Quentin knows). Here at the QTA, we let the facts speak, and so we’re not writing about any of it. And we all know he’ll not be in the Smurfs, that’s just BS. Same goes for that Lady GaGa rumor (most likely). So since it’s a slow saturday, let me just share some interesting links with you on the Tarantino front:
Q is now a honorary Texan, you can read up on it and check out his acceptance speech (link). Jumping back to the Oscars a bit, there’s Quentin on the carpet (link w/ video), and a report on the pre-Oscar party at his house where he was DJing (link), and a report with pictures of the Basterds celebrating (link). There’s a nice little story about a Bollywood celebrity and his encounter with Quentin (link).
On a different note, let me say how the last few years changed the way a fan site like this one works. The community has shifted in large parts away from traditional message boards (such as the one we have and encourage you to join) to more “social media” forms like Facebook (here’s our FB group) or Twitter (here’s our Twitter feed). This has meant more diversification, faster disemination of news (we don’t write a blog post any more for each little link we find or hear about) and more decentralization (count all the QT-related pages, feeds, and whatever). This doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad. In fact, you can now comment on all our news posts, you can still join the forums, our FB group, our Twitter feed, our Hell Ride fan page (which is currently in a race about how many fans it can get with our Inglourious Basterds fan page) or help us working on The Archives. Lots of things happening, we’re a huge community, just a little more spread out compared to a few years ago. Make sure to subscribe to us by RSS, by the way. So you don’t miss out on our news posts.
On a sidenote, not sure if all of you heard, but we launched a new website called PISTOLERO, which is a news blog and community about Robert Rodriguez‘ movies, so make sure you check that out at www.robert-rodriguez.info (and there’s also a Twitter feed @RodriguezNews and a Facebook fan page you should join).
By the way, THE DEUCE switched to a Facebook page (used to be a group), check it out RIGHT HERE and get your daily grindhouse fix.
