‘The Sandlot’: What ‘The Beast’ Really Looked Like
In honor of the film’s 20th anniversary this week (The 20th Anniversary edition Blu-ray of “The Sandlot” is now available.), BuzzFeed decided to unearth a few of Evans’s behind-the-scenes photos, which detail the magic behind “The Beast.”
“I had several ‘GIANT THE BEAST PUPPETS’ [sic] built for the movie. One was a completely articulated “Giant The Beast Head” and another was a full over-sized “Giant The Beast Puppet Suit” brought to life by two brave puppeteers actually inside the suit,” Evans said, adding that “they were designed and built by my friend and puppeteer genius Rick Lazarini.”
Clearly, this was posted so that I remember that I am old.
�I hate how the phrase ‘have some self respect’ is used to shame women who are comfortable with their sex lives. ‘Have some self respect’? I do respect myself, that’s why I wanna have a fucking orgasm tonight, thank you very much.�
“mum I’m moving to finland” “okay”
So many things about this that any public school teacher could tell you.
- Kids need recess
- Standardized testing accomplishes nothing, especially when they have to take 4-5 a year
- Individualized attention from teachers is necessary
- SpEd and EBD students do better behavior-wise when their integrated into mainstream classrooms.
But is the government listening?
I say this every time this Finland meme comes up and finally someone on the Atlantic agrees with me.
The reason why this works there and not here (or any place with a non homogenous population) is bc colonizers have no interest in educating the “other” or consider them equals that deserve unfettered access to education. This is why private schools exist. Ppl did not want their kids educated alongside people who they viewed beneath them.
That inequality conversation needs to be addressed first before any progress happens.
