The ‘Happiest Moment’ Of Quentin Tarantino’s Life Came During ‘Reservoir Dogs’

As one of America’s star directors, Quentin Tarantino has become a larger-than-life personality. He seems relentlessly cocksure today, but there was once a time when Tarantino had to prove to himself that he was capable of this whole filmmaking thing.

Given how trying it can be to forge a movie career, Tarantino had a relatively auspicious start. His first project, “Reservoir Dogs,” made him an instant up-and-comer amid the 1990s’ independent-film boom. Celebrating the crime thriller’s 25th anniversary, Tarantino reunited with Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth on Friday night for a screening and panel discussion at the Tribeca Film Festival. There, he spoke of his signature memory from the film, which doubles as the “happiest moment” of his life.

It came at the end of a two-week rehearsal period, during which the actors bonded in Los Angeles. Keitel hosted a cast dinner at the house he was renting in Malibu. Tarantino was staying with his mother in Glendale, about 40 miles away. That night, perched around Keitel’s table, he realized the dream he’d maintained since his Tennessee days as a teenage video-store clerk had real potential. Thanks to the “Reservoir Dogs” cast’s harmony, Tarantino’s career was born.

“We’re sitting there and we’re having a great time, and I really realized that, gosh, a lot of the pressure was off my shoulders cinematically,” Tarantino said. “These guys were so perfect in their parts, they were so vibing with each other, they so understood the material. By rehearsing two weeks, they knew the material. I was like, ‘Fuck, if I just keep this movie in focus, I’ve got a movie.’ Anything else I bring to it will just be frosting, but the cake is here — it’s these guys. I watched it at dinner that night. It was a really nice thing for Harvey to do. But I remember that night getting in my car and just taking that drive all the way from Malibu to Glendale, just on [Sunset Boulevard], never getting off Sunset, all the little, windy roads. And that was the happiest time of my life. That was the happiest moment of my life. This thing that I had thought about for so long — not just ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ just making movies in general — this might just work out.”

Of course, things did work out, despite projector problems and a power outage during the first “Reservoir Dogs” screening at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival. Tarantino saw it as a mark of achievement that people walked out during the scene were Mr. Blonde tortures the kidnapped police officer. The number of exits during a single screening peaked at 33, according to his count. Even Wes Craven walked out at Spain’s horror-focused Sitges Film Festival. “The guy who did ‘Last House on the Left’ walked out of my movie,” Tarantino roared. “I guess it was too tough for him.”

Fans Thank Ellen For The ‘Triumphant Moment’ She Came Out On TV

On Friday, Ellen DeGeneres celebrated the 20th anniversary of “The Puppy Episode,” in which her character on her sitcom, “Ellen,” came out as gay. 

The 1997 episode, which followed DeGeneres’s own coming out on the cover of Time magazine, helped pave the way for LGBTQ characters on mainstream TV. But even more importantly, it was an indelible moment for queer audiences everywhere, inspiring many viewers who had yet to come to terms with their sexuality to open up to their friends and family members.

On Friday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” fans recalled how “The Puppy Episode” impacted them in an emotional video. “I knew, in a way, that I was watching history,” said one, “but I didn’t know how much that was going to impact my own life.” Added another, “It was this huge feeling of relief. That was the very first time in my life that I didn’t feel alone.”

Others pointed to how risky the move in the years before shows like “Will & Grace” and “Modern Family” introduced more LGBTQ characters into the cultural lexicon. “It was like watching the Super Bowl. This was our Hail Mary as, I think, a gay community,” one fan noted. Another thanked DeGeneres for putting her career on the line to “not open doors, but to kick down doors and swing them flying open.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

People Are Pretty Much Convinced This Confiscated Gun Came From A Time Traveler

The Baltimore Police Department shared a Facebook post on Thursday that, for the most part, was pretty run-of-the-mill police fodder.

It stated that police had pulled over a man and discovered a loaded handgun, along with some drugs, inside his car. Since the man’s criminal record prohibits him from owning a gun, cops confiscated it.

The only thing out of the ordinary? The gun looks like this:

The weapon’s old-timey-looking appearance was not lost on social media.

“This is the first gun you have access to in Grand Theft Auto: Gettysburg,” one of the top comments on the photo reads. Tens of thousands of comments follow, many of them in the same vein.

You can read the rest of the excellent comments here.

The Baltimore Police Department could not be reached for comment by The Huffington Post for more details on the gun, or whether they would be reopening the investigation into President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination.

Here’s Rihanna And Calvin Harris’ ‘This Is What You Came For’ As An ’80s Power Ballad

The ‘80s were a glorious time.

We were given classic jams like Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven Is a Place on Earth.”

There was no better time for music.

Luckily, a YouTube user/genius named Saint-Laurent, with help on guitar by one Daniel Mackay, has taken a modern classic — Rihanna and Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For” — and has turned it into an EPIC ‘80s power ballad.

The song, which usually makes you feel like you’ve had an espresso shot administered via IV, is slowed down and combined with a keyboard in this iteration. The result is a jam that makes us want to grab some leggings and start back-combing our hair immediately. 

Enjoy the VHS-style remake of the music video above, complete with Rihanna rockin’ a Whitney-esque do.

A Gay Dad Sounds Off On The School That Canceled ‘And Then Came Tango’ Play

By Rob Watson | The Next Family

There was a significant hearing this week on Tuesday about same sex relationships and whether to ban them. You likely missed this one because you were focused on that OTHER hearing in front of the Supreme Court, the one on whether all states in the union should perform and recognize same sex marriages.

No, this hearing was smaller, with less attention and could have been held in what might be described as a wholly alternative universe.

This hearing was in front of a school board in Catheys Valley, Mariposa County, California. It was held in a place where same sex marriage legally exists without question.

Unlike the Supreme Court, which was surrounded by folks waving banners of equality, tolerance and the love that creates families, this hearing was full of people who wanted none of that and took offense against anyone who did not look and act like them.

The case before the school board was this: the Sierra Charter Foothill School was scheduled to host a performance of the play, “And Then Came Tango,” based on the true story of two male penguins who hatched and orphaned egg and raised the chick as their own. New York Theater Now describes “Tango” as: “Emily Freeman’s timely play for young audiences, shares the tale of six chinstrap penguins at the Central Park Zoo — and the people who care for them. More specifically and touchingly, Freeman zeroes in on Roy and Silo, two males who form a penguin bond akin to their male-female-paired peers, engaging in mating rituals and trying to hatch a rock. Even more touchingly, Lily, the young Junior Keeper, convinces Walter, the zookeeper in charge of the exhibit, to let Silo and Roy incubate an orphaned egg — which they do to loving fruition.”

The booking of the play had been in place for a year with the Fresno State Theater Troupe. The school regretted having missed out on the previous year’s performance of “The Velveteen Rabbit,” so put in their reservation early to get on the schedule for “Tango.”

Once the play’s synopsis was sent to them, the administration wretched over what they perceived as a “gay theme.” They immediately made attendance voluntary and sent out “warnings” to all their parents. This effort was not enough for many in the community who demanded that the ability to opt out was not enough. They insisted that the school needed to cancel the production all together or they would boycott it for the day.

The force of the vitriolic response shocked the administrators who then threw the decision of the play’s fate to the school board. Meanwhile, some of the students who wanted to see the play began passing out rainbow ribbon bracelets out to those willing to wear them. This “radical” action was also quickly shut down by the administration. The school leaders took on a “road theater” of their own and went into classes to perform skits. Their theme was about how trying to inspire acceptance of others was actually a divisive act. I am not sure what the reviews of the “Divisive Act” skits were, but in any case, they successfully shut down the distribution of rainbow ribbon bracelets and the “perpetrators” apologized.

At the same time the first and second graders were putting the final touches to their creative writing and a story called “Hannah’s Adventure” which was headed to a writing festival in Meced. Hannah was undoubtedly “safe” because she apparently did not have two moms. So, full steam ahead.

Mariposa County life for “And Then Came Tango” was not so fortuitous. The school board voted conclusively to end its run long before it got started.

While the first and second graders of Sierra Charter Foothill wrote their piece, I wrote one of my own. Here is my open letter to the school and the community it serves.

Dear Sierra Charter Foothill School Community,

I was horrified to read of your recent actions around the play called “And Then Came Tango,” which depicted two penguins who loved each other and then saved, hatched and nurtured an orphaned egg. Your principal stated that the play “does cross the line for what parents think is appropriate for school.”

At the school board meeting, parents made comments like “It’s about two men. They raise a baby and I don’t agree with that.” Your community members described the family image in “Tango” as “social engineering” and “promoting” homosexuality. The consensus was “I want to teach my kids what I believe in my home that’s it.”

The family depicted in “And Then Came Tango” is mine.

We are not penguins, and my sons were not hatched, but aside from those set-decorating changes, it is us. My oldest son was born six weeks prematurely to a heroin-addicted mother. My younger son was found abandoned by his drug-addicted mother in a trailer where he had been uncared for two days. My spouse and I had so much love between us that we wanted to extend it further. We adopted these two babies who needed us.

The love I have for my sons is the most profound I have ever known.

That is our story, and it is reflected in the factual story of the penguins in the play. The penguin real life story occurred in 1999 at the Central Park Zoo, and they met with the same intolerant attitude that your community is exhibiting. Homophobic people rose up and demanded that the penguin family be broken apart. They felt what had happened naturally was somehow “sending the wrong message.”

The “Tango” story is about love. My family’s story is about love. We are people, we are not ideas or theories for you to “agree” or “disagree” with. My sons are not experiments nor are they part of some agenda to “promote” a brand of sexuality. I would never disrespect your children by characterizing them as “talking points of heterosexual sex acts” and I expect the common decency from you to not classify my sons similarly.

Just for the record, my family is not alone. There are thousands like us in the state of California. We are your neighbors. Just like the orphaned egg in the story, there are also thousands of kids who have been abused or neglected in our state. A Cambridge study found that there is only one parental profile family that chooses to create a family using foster care/adoption as its first choice — that profile is a two male led household.

My sons are both wonderful boys — bright, charming, caring — and have both been taught to be good citizens in their school community. Even though it is clear that they would not be welcome, your school would be fortunate to have two such as them within it.

All your kids are going to come to school and share with others about how they came to be in their families, LGBT kids do the same. My sons, like other kids from differing family structures, fully grasp the concept of mutual respect between families. It is the principle where we listen to each other and find common ground, not a focus on our differences.

It is a concept that you have just voted down. It is a lesson you have yet to learn.

As for “Tango,” theater arts are meant to illustrate, illuminate and shake their audience from pre-conceived notions and feelings. This play was brought to you not so you can judge and censor it, or the families like mine that it represents, but so you can watch and grow from finding out about us. It asks you to consider that a family is driven more from the hearts of its members than it is from their genitals.

Last year, your school was upset that it missed out on the road tour of a production of the classic “The Velveteen Rabbit.” I wonder if you would have caught the message of that play and how it too affirms the creation of families such as mine. I am sorry you did not see it, as you might have taken a glimpse of what it means to be a “real” family. You would have heard this:

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real…It doesn’t happen all at once…You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Tango was not seeking your approval, it was a gift for you so that you could start to see things more broadly and appreciate the diversity in this world. It was ready to show you what is truly real, something like my family.

By your actions, you have shut down a great educational opportunity.

That opportunity was not for your kids, it was for you.

Lalaine Explains How That Magical ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Reunion Came To Be

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and that rock doesn’t have Wi-Fi), you’ve probably heard about the recent mini “Lizzie McGuire” reunion with Hilary Duff, Lalaine and Jake Thomas. If you did somehow miss it, just know their spontaneous meetup in a bowling alley was definitely what dreams are made of.

So this happened last night… #LizzieMcGuire

A photo posted by Jake Thomas (@sirjakethomas) on

Recently, Miranda Sanchez (known as Lalaine IRL) spoke with HuffPost Entertainment and explained why that impromptu meeting was totally fate.

Image: Tumblr

So how did this even happen?
I like to bowl. I have my own ball that my dude got me during Christmas, so we’re pretty into it. We started bowling and I swore I thought I heard [Hilary Duff]. Like her voice will never not be recognizable for me. I mean, c’mon, we were like family for how long? And then I looked, and it totally was her. We finally happened to be in the same place after 14 years. It was random and a little bit of fate maybe, so I forced fate’s hand a little bit and I immediately hit up Jake [Thomas] because he’s like less than a mile away from the bowling alley.

Oh cool, so you guys kept in touch?
Yeah, I have actually been very close with most of the people that were on the show. I was just on the phone with Adam [Lamberg] for example, so I just was like, “This is hilarious,” so I hit Jake up, and I was like, “Yo, at Pins. Hilary’s like four lanes down,” and he was like, “Haha! Oh my God! Should I come there?” So he came on over, and then we were like, “Let’s make this even more hilarious and send her a drink.” And we did. She waved to us, and she had no idea who we were because we were pretty far from her and it was dark.

But then she walked over and immediately saw me. As she was walking up, I’m just like, “Really, girl? Really?”… It hit her that it’s me. She turned around and was cracking up, and it didn’t even faze her that Jake was standing right next to me. I was like, “Are you kidding me? Did you not see this thing right by me?” She was like double stumped … It was just fate.

Image: Giphy

Wow, this is amazing. It’s the best Instagram post I’ve ever seen.
Oh for sure, and Jake was just like, “I get dibs on putting this up first,” and I was like, “I don’t care about that, dude.” It’s probably been a couple years less for him, like, maybe it’s been 12 years for him since he’s seen her, but for me it’s been like 14 … I was more on the fact that it was hilarious that all of us were here.

So was Gordo not invited because he hates bowling?
[Laughs] Oh my God! Adam would’ve totally been invited. Gordo may hate bowling, but who knows — after 12 years he might’ve changed his mind.

Might’ve changed his mind. Sure …

A-Sides with Jon Chattman: ‘Then Came…’ The Lone Bellow

The “sophomore jinx” thing is very real. Arthur 2: On the Rocks immediately comes to mind for some unexplainable reason, but I’ll deal with that on my own time and perhaps with my therapist. The reason I bring this up is successful and hyped musicians often fail to deliver creatively and commercially on their follow-up releases, but the Southern-born, Brooklyn-based trio Lone Bellow have avoided this like a fanny pack. Raising the bar on an already stellar and put-on-the-mapping (yeah, I made that up – shocking I know) debut album, harmonious Southern-bred, Brooklyn-based the Lone Bellow just dropped Then Came the Morning, and it’s among the year’s best and I say that in February knowing it’ll be true in December. It’s no wonder it was recorded in a church, because it actually takes you there. The powerhouse trio of Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist, and Kanene Pipkin may be considered Americana folk but their voices (like Mike Myers Coffee Talk “buttah”) stretch well beyond genre and labels.

Earlier this month, the trio performed richly raw versions of two new tracks for A-Sides filmed at the Music Conservatory of Westchester in White Plains, NY, and sat down for a chat to discuss the new record and everything else in-between. They also debuted a fourth member, who is quite easily the cutest of the bunch. Watch on, and you’re welcome.

About A-Sides with Jon Chattman:

This informal series focuses on the artist making art in a low-threatening, extremely informal (sometime humorous) way. No bells, no whistles — just the music performed in a random, low-key setting followed by an unrehearsed chat. In an industry where everything often gets overblown and over manufactured, Jon strives for a refreshing change. Artists have included fun., Charli XCX, Imagine Dragons, Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, Gary Clark Jr., American Authors, Echosmith,and many, many more!

You Asked, You Got, Then Came Trouble

Have you ever had the experience of setting out to make a positive change in your life, only to have it start an avalanche of changes that scares and overwhelms you?

A few of my clients have had this experience lately, and I’ve seen it a lot over the years.

Sometimes the avalanche of change is full of desirable things piggy-backing on the positive step you wanted to make in the first place. Other times, the avalanche is more saboteurial in nature, distracting you from where you really want to go. Both can derail you. Read on to find out how to keep it in check.



You’ve been miserable for a long time. You know you want to make a move, and even know what it is, but you are not sure how you would do it or what it would look like exactly . You take a chance, hire a coach, quickly get clear and start taking scary steps. Suddenly, everything you want and more than you could ever dream of starts to pour in — miraculous coincidences, lucky moves, desires fulfilled! What to do?

Believe it or not, most people know to be grateful, but there is something very unsettling about the floodgates opening up. People start behaving like they’re drowning. Overwhelmed, breathless, and the opportunities are forcing them to grow and make decisions at an alarming rate, somewhat in a panic. Often, this happens while simultaneously trying to complete the old job, task, or relationship you are letting go of.

ACTION ONE: Breathe!

Slow down the pace of change simply by relaxing into your body. Breathe more deeply, walk more slowly, take the time to answer thoughtfully. Don’t get swept up in the wave.

ACTION TWO: Make peace with failure

If you’re not perfect keeping up your old activities as you navigate the new, forgive yourself. Delegate what you can. Do what’s most important, but let it be OK if something falls through the cracks. That goes for the new adventure too. Certainly, striking while the iron is hot is important but know that you are learning and that there will be unexpected turns. Forgive yourself.

ACTION THREE: Stop being a lone ranger

Change is hard. You don’t have to do it alone. Sometimes it comes so fast, we don’t feel we have time to reach out, but reach out you must. A mentor in your new chosen endeavor, friends who can just listen or help, or even a hired assistant to temporarily do some grocery shopping, chores, errands or child wrangling if possible. If you’re working with a coach, use them well during the avalanche.


You’ve been ready to explode for a long time, or maybe you’ve gotten sick of hearing yourself complain, so you hired a coach and got going trying to forge new directions. Clarity starts to come because you start admitting to yourself out loud what you really want for yourself. You work hard to start moving in that direction, thwarting old habits and traps, things start looking hopeful and then BAM! small disasters start happening. You catch a flu bug, someone dear passes away, your job gets more demanding leaving no time for yourself and you’re a victim of identity theft. Yeah, it’s not OR it’s AND. The saboteur avalanche doesn’t mess around. It’s usually not just ONE thing that gets in the way. What do you do?

I do find that people who have been holding off doing what they know they need to do for many years, tend to have the nastier avalanche. However, it’s important not to blame yourself. CHAOS is how the world reorganizes itself. And it happens. You did not DO anything to bring this on. The test is not whether you caused it, but rather, how you deal with it.

ACTION ONE: Breathe (funny — the same for both types)

Slow your breath to get a grip on the changes.

ACTION TWO: Don’t take it personally

Stuff happens. Don’t let it erode your sense of self. Watch how you talk to yourself in your head. Stop blaming yourself or thinking disparaging things. Do whatever you can to not ADD to the DRAMA. As you talk to others and as you deal with the losses or changes, try to remain neutral. If you editorialize and over-dramatize, you add fuel to the fire by whacking out your adrenal glands and making your body remain in the stressed state too long — tough for getting your wits about you and persevering.


Too many times, I see people give up. Like being in the Indy 500 and just pulling over to quit, you’re more likely to get seriously hurt. Yes, timing is a factor and sometimes it pays to wait, but when the nasty avalanche happens, it’s not a sign that you were NOT meant to have what you want or that you were heading in the wrong direction. It is just a BIG nasty test to see how badly you want what you say you want.

DO NOT GIVE UP. NO matter which kind of avalanche shows up, do one small thing a day (or at least a few times a week!) to keep moving in the new direction. It will pay off.

Change is hard. That’s why most people don’t do it. But you ARE doing it, and that deserves applause. BRAVO! Now get to work.
