I found the giraffes making love on the  TFIOS movie

Now that I bought the movie on iTunes, I can confirm that this is real. (Also hilarious.) You can see it very clearly 1:36 into the movie. I wasn’t there the day they shot this scene, so I have no idea who did it, but there were several nerdfighters on the crew. Whoever is responsible for these beautiful mating plastic giraffes: THANK YOU, MY HERO.

Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication. 
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.

I started working for the BC Cancer Foundation three weeks ago, searching for something useful to do with my days before my gap year travels began. My job is to be that little pest who knocks at your door just before dinner is placed on the table, there to persuade you to sign up for a monthly donation subscription. In the last three weeks, I’ve had doors slammed in my face, people start to cry due to a relative who was recently diagnosed, drug dealers offer to donate in full cash, and even one person who had such ill feelings towards the foundation that he wished the very disease we aim to treat upon me.
We use these awesome tablets to fill out the monthly donation pledge forms. Recently, my boss suggested that we number the tablets to keep track of which person was using which one. A coworker jokingly suggested we should name them. While other people wrote down things like Bonquiqui and George the Grand, I knew exactly what my little machine was going to be called.
Esther Earl is a huge part of the nerdfighter community. Even after her passing, Esther continues to be a shining star in our world, showing us that we can all work together to decrease worldsuck. Esther’s star won’t go out, and even though I know I’m never going to be the person who will find the needed cure for the disease that took her, I figure that I can help out by using what I’ve got- a set of legs made for walking and a compassion for those like Esther, in my own province, who could really be helped by the BC Cancer Foundation.
I hope naming my little tablet after such an inspiration will let me take even a microscopic piece of Esther with me as I go a-knocking.
DFTBA.
P.S - I seriously do have some weird, wacky and sometimes just downright unbelievable stories from the past few weeks. I’m going to start posting one or two of them on here every few days.
