So what goes on around here? oh you know...Drooling over the normal stuff; Megamind, Disney, Harry Potter, Starkid, Big Bang Theory, Hunger Games, Divergent, etc. Don't forget endless writing of fanfics galore..MegamindxRoxanne, AtLA, BatB...
A couple of you guys have been having a rough time, so I thought maybe I’d post this in a feeble attempt at helping from long distance. I’m not good at really personal stuff like this, so skip it if you’re not into symphonic-ish music and rambly thoughts.
This is one of my favorite pieces of music. When I’ve reached the point where I’m saturated with humanity, and I can’t stand being surrounded by walls and squabbling people and the smell of car exhaust, I put this on and close my eyes.
It’s a little different each time. I’m swimming like a dolphin, or I’m flying on the wings of a hawk or a crow. The world is brilliant and blue and green and vibrant, and it’s full of life; plants, fish, birds, everything, and it’s beautiful. I lose myself and glide through this amazing blue/green world, teeming with the most amazing creatures. There are schools of brilliantly colored fish, corals that duck in and out of their carbonate shells, and sharks and rays, and enormous, majestic whales. Or there are birds everywhere, and herds of deer or antelope running across rolling hills of grass, hunting creatures slipping through the shadows of a forest. There are the most beautiful mountains and valleys; sunsets and cloudless skies full of stars, and it’s all so big. It’s exciting and soothing and it leaves me just a little breathless with awe.
When it ends I feel a little bit better, like I’ve reconnected to the heartbeat of the world. I hope this helps if any of you need something like that.
I reblog this everytime it’s on my dash. A lot of people think an anxiety attack is always hyperventilating and freaking out. I don’t know how it is for everybody but I can have anxiety attacks where I just feel like I’m not breathing enough even though I am and start getting sweaty, heart races and sudden urge to escape no matter what I’m doing. Most don’t think that’s an “attack” but until you’ve felt it you don’t know how claustrophobic it actually makes you feel.
its so scary
NAUSEA & VOMITING
“Lilo and Stitch” 2002
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
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
Thank god I’m home alone because I bust a gut laughing when the sirens went off!!!!! Why was this cut out/?!?!!
