So the subplot of Holes is that Kate Barlow deals with the politically-sanctioned execution of her black boyfriend—who unlawfully kissed a white woman who was in love with him!!!—by becoming a serial killer who targets racist/sexist white dudes who harassed her, were rejected, then went after her boyfriend as revenge from the depths of the “friend zone”.

Go off Louis Sachar, let em know!

Don’t forget the main plot was a damning satire of the brokenness and inherent racism of the American justice and prison systems! Louis Sachar does not fuck about

It always fuck me up that older people don’t understand how this story is as essential to most american children as Gone with the Wind or Mary Poppins was.

unironically, this is one of the best books/movies for young people that exists

Kissing Kate Did Nothing Wrong

And the technical writing of Holes is perfect. Like, it’s one of the most technically-perfect books ever written. Basically any plotting or pacing or characterization issue you’re having, read Holes and really study how Sachar did it. THE LIZARDS! THE LIZARDS.

the twisty prophecies! the lizards! the lipstick! the humor! this book doesn’t play. a true classic.

Somebody had to actually dig the holes in the movie ‘Holes’.

that’s what interns are for

Builds character

His name is Tim Everett.

He plotted all of the holes in “Holes” using 3D modeling. He also supervised the production of all the lizards in the same movie.

He built the storm in “The Perfect Storm” and now he’s the Hollywood go-to guy for water effects. The whirlpool in Pirates of the Caribbean? Tim fucking Everett. They asked for him by name.

He’s the man who taught me how to model mountains and light caves. He showed me how to frame a scene in classical 3-field vignetting. He is a hard ass when it comes to lazy work, and he is one of the most amazing artists I have ever had the pleasure to present my work to.

That someone believes some poor intern had to dig all those holes is a testament to his work. Tim Everett is an environmental guru.

Someone did dig all of those holes.

His name is Tim Everett.

Holy crap. Now that’s dedication.
