Oh Hi There!

My laptop finally decided to die and I have not replaced it yet.  That is really the main reason I have not been posting as much, I tried posting from my phone but found it to be slightly inconvenient.  My hat goes off to professional bloggers that not only write all the time but post from their phone as well.  I hope everyone is doing well and I will be back writing soon.

One of the best videos I’ve seen on this.

ZERO TOLERANCE

He’s the reason why I live sometimes

I literally had no idea this kind of stuff was happening on youtube at such a grand level. I’ve read racist comments and have seen questionable videos before but I never thought that it was so entrenched in not only the fans but also the youtubbers themselves. This is some very scary shit

Well said

Underwater sculpture, in Grenada, in honor of our African ancestors thrown overboard.

I couldnt not reblog this, it’s so powerful to me.

oh my god.

My god, most amazing thing I ever seen.

Again?! Protip: Tumblr = true/accurate. Smh….

Research is so important y’all

The sculpture, called Viccisitudes, is by Jason de Caires Taylor. The underwater sculpture is 5 meters deep in the water near Grenada, West Indies. It illustrates children from the island holding hands and it’s illustrative of how children grow and reflect their environment. Taylor’s sculptures combine his degree in sculpture making, underwater naturalism, and underwater photography skills to make things like this. The sculptures also help facilitate coral growth.

You can read more about Vicissitudes here. More of his work is here.

reblogging for updated info

“Lilo and Stitch” 2002

Deleted Scene

Lilo plays a trick on the tourists.

IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU’D UNDERSTAND

I desperately need to understand

WHY

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY

Was this scene cut from the movie??!!

Fucking christ, do you know what this would have done? What this would have meant to SO MANY people??  The truth of this is devastating. And to think it almost found it’s way into a DISNEY film??

The inclusion of this scene alone would have made it the greatest animated feature the company ever produced. Easily. And if you think that’s hyperbolic clearly you don’t understand.

No, really, if anyone knows why this was cut PLEASE let me know. 

oh man WHY WOULD they cut this, this is so great, holy MOLY

It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped)

Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.

I’ve been seeing this around my dash and think it deserves some more recognition!

This shit is hilarious, too.

NO WAIT SHIT

I GET IT NOW

I GET WHY SHE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING TOURISTS AS A HOBBY

SHE WAS BEING FUCKING SATIRICAL AND OBJECTIFYING

IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A DUMB KID WITH A WEIRD HOBBY IT’S BECAUSE THEY DO THAT TO HER AND HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY LIKE SHE’S SOME KIND OF FUCKING THEME PARK CHARACTER AND SHE WANTS THEM TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS

HOLY FUCKING DICKS DISNEY WHY WOULD YOU CUT THIS

aaaa it makes me sooo angry that they cut this scene ; _ ;

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”

You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.

Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
