Behind the scenes on The Power of Words with director Liz Unna and Caitlin Moran
The Times - Unquiet Film Series
what you are, as a teenager, is a small, silver, empty rocket. And you use loud music as fuel, and then the information in books as maps and co-ordinates, to tell you where you’re going. — How to Build a Girl, Caitlin Moran (via touchingfromalongdistance0)
It seemed to me that this was the real reason people wanted to fuck so much. To get here. To get to this tiny, quiet place where there was nothing else to do but be with each other. Just to be two humans who had - for a short while - stopped wanting. This is the beautiful, final destination. The end of things. — 'How to Build a Girl' by Caitlin Moran (via wildthingwilddreams)
I want a face full of frown lines and weariness and cream-colored teeth that, frankly, tells stupid and venal people to FUCK OFF. I want a face that drawls — possible in the voice of James Cagney, although Cagney from Cagney & Lacy will do — “I’ve seen more recalcitrant toddlers/devious line managers/steep mountain passes/complicated dance routines on Parappa the Rapper/bigger sums that you’ll ever see in you life, sunshine. So get out of my special chair and bring me a cheese sandwich.
Lines and grayness are nature’s was of telling you not to fuck with someone — the equivalent of the yellow-and-black banding on a wasp, or the markings on the back of a black widow spider. Lines are your weapon against idiots. Lines are your “KEEP AWAY FROM THE WISE INTOLERANT WOMAN” sign. — (via pathofneedlespathofpins)
I think it’s really important to not to go on the red carpet and try and look pretty like all the other pretty ladies: wearing the dress and the high heeled shoes, getting your hair done and getting the diamonds you have to borrow for that day. That’s a competition I don’t want to take part in because other prettier girls with better hair and better shoes will win that competition. I don’t want to be in that competition. I want to walk very comfortably in a pair of boots and a Ghostbusters jumpsuit and be able to enjoy the afterparty: whenever you go to these afterparties you see these very beautiful women standing around holding their shoes in their hands, with a tension headache from their hairdo, scared that they’ve lost an earring that they’ve borrowed from Chopard, unable to breath or drink, scared of spillage and can’t go outside to have a fag because they are too chilly. I like to dress for fun. And I like to dress to bust ghosts. And that’s the only outfit that allows me to do both. — Caitlin Moran on the Ghostbuster jumpsuit [x]

If you are not a confident person, pretend to be one — Caitlin Moran (via beaquallure)
