Ananda Dillon View all posts

    Ananda Dillon lives in Los Angeles, she watches a lot of films, reads a lot of books, dallies in graphic design and likes trying to find new synonyms for 'screenwriter' to distance herself from being a Hollywood cliche. She can't remember to buy milk but will almost always know a film or TV reference and she's hopelessly addicted to starting new DIY projects and botching the heck out of them.

Max Freedman View all posts

    Max Freedman listens to so much music that doctors have found mp3s in his blood. He’s completely taken advantage of living directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan, having seen some thirty-odd concerts there. Oddly enough, Funeral isn’t his favorite Arcade Fire album. He wants everyone to know that, because he really wants people to think he's different.
