American Independent Cinema: Spike, Mike, Slackers, and Dykes

"John Pierson is one of the unsung heroes of the independent–film explosion of the last decade. Just ask him. A New York–based producer's rep, he was among the first to discover and help finance the debuts of such filmmakers as Spike Lee, Michael Moore, Richard Linklater, Rose Troche, and Kevin Smith. Pierson recounts these discoveries and describes the booming independent–film scene from the inside in his memoir Spike, Mike, Slackers & Dykes: A Guided Tour Across a Decade of American Independent Cinema, a book as personal and idiosyncratic as some of the films he has nurtured."

(Gary Susman, 1995, Phoenix Media/Communication Group)

A social mirror to the prevalence of casual homophobia on Twitter

"This website is designed as a social mirror to show the prevalence of casual homophobia in our society. Words and phrases like 'faggot,' 'dyke,' 'no homo,' and 'so gay' are used casually in everyday language, despite promoting the continued alienation, isolation and – in some tragic cases – suicide of sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ) youth.

We no longer tolerate racist language, we're getting better at dealing with sexist language, but sadly we're still not actively addressing homophobic and transphobic language in our society.

Let's put an end to casual homophobia. Speak out when you see or hear homophobic or transphobic language from friends, at school,

in the locker room, at work or online. Use #NoHomophobes to show your support. And visit one of our resource websites to get more involved."

Undermining the heterosexual love triangle in the heterosexual narrative

"The montages undermine the function of the heterosexual love triangle in the heterosexual narrative. For example, the lesbian 'driver' in Katherine Hepburn's car makes Spencer Tracy's kiss benign and impotent – little more than a grandfatherly peck on the cheek which Hepburn indulges."

Deborah Bright (Stolen Glances – Lesbians Take Photographs p.152)

BBC Creative Archive: Public Access Rights

bbc.co.uk/pressoffice (26.05.2004)
The BBC outlined the broader scope of its Creative Archive initiative for the first time today [...it] will allow people to download clips of BBC factual programmes from bbc.co.uk for non–commercial use, keep them on their PCs, manipulate and share them, so making the BBC's archives more accessible to licence fee payers.

Greg Dyke first announced the BBC's intention, in 2001. Paula LeDieu is currently the joint–director of the project.
