Bryan Fuller: One of the more comedic conversations with the standards and practices were the angels. The blood eagles that were made with the people's backs splayed open and the angel wings. And they had their buttocks in the frame, in the shot. Standards and practices were like, "you cannot show the butt crack."
Interviewer 1: Only in America.
Interviewer 2: That's their main issue?
Fuller: So we couldn't show a butt crack. So I said, "what if we filled the butt crack with blood so it actually obscures the crack" and they said "that would be great!"<p>OH AMERICA</p>

My Essay about Michelangelo
Michelangelo was an introvert who didn’t want to go to school and just wanted to do art shit all day. Just like me.
It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.
You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.
But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures.
Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers.
