Would you suggest majoring in film? In terms of employment, etc
asked by Anonymous

Film degree and employment shouldn’t even be in the same sentence. When I worked at BBC I was the only one there with a film degree. The only reason to major in film is if you’re insanely passionate about filmmaking and want to dedicate years of your life to studying the craft, theory, and history of filmmaking in order to make films yourself. If you want a steady job then you’re better off getting a business degree or something.



Like I always say, the real horror in life isn’t monsters, demons or ghosts but us, humans and what we are capable of

This is legit terrifying.

No, just Arabic and English.

Eid Mubarak 🌞🌝

When Ramadan ends and you’re able to eat and drink but don’t have the appetite anymore, you realize it was never the hunger or thirst that was getting you but the temptation.

You can go months on a dry spell, but when creativity rains it pours.

sistani is iranian
asked by Anonymous

Ah yes, the lovely “Iranian as a derogatory word for Shi’a” as if being non-Arab is any less of a human being. I’m not going to defend a man like Sistani whose own enemies can’t find faults in, but I’m simply going to remind you of two things.

1) Shi’a scholars with the black turban means they are Sayed, and Sayeds are descendants of the Ahlul Bayt who are Arab. They had to flee to Iran and even further due to persecution from the power-hungry caliphs who saw them as a political threat.

2) In Prophet Mohammed’s (pbuh) last sermon, he said: All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.

The destination motivates you, the journey teaches you, and the struggle humbles you.
