The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.


A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts

American Girl was the best shit.
I’ve seen people get grossed out by the illustrations in their puberty books, but lord, how else was I supposed to properly learn? American Girl gave zero fucks about conservative family feelings. They were like “girls need to know this shit and we’re going to market it in such a way that you buy it”

okay that book was super important, because yeah it explained puberty and shit, but it also explained mental health stuff like DEPRESSION, and when you’re 13 and you see that in that book and you can put words and a name to an overwhelming feeling with no clear origins, it’s a fucking relief.

WERD while I put a focus on art, my like SECONDARY DREAM would be writing/editing for American Girl. I was actually just having a conversation with a customer two weeks ago, in which they kind of went on about the frivolity of the doll business (okay), but you have GOT TO GIVE THEM CREDIT for publishing great fiction and non-fiction books, presenting a diverse collection of characters and dolls, and encouraging girls to do whatever the fuck they want.
