I submit the intro for Hunchback of Notre Dame beats Circle of Life raw.

Especially since the former doesn’t have flocks of pink birds that immediately make me think, “Sure, Disney, you weren’t influenced at all by Osamu Tezuka. Tell us another one.”

This movie was surprisingly hardcore for a Disney retelling of Victor Hugo’s really screwed up story.

It also did a ton of great stuff with God and religion and Catholicism that somehow managed to still be about people and not bring “Why Religion Sucks” into the whole thing, which is aces.

One thing that surprises me is how well the animation has aged. Strangely enough, it looked weird at the time; we weren’t really used to traditional animation blended with computer backgrounds. But now that pretty much everything is computer animated, you can really appreciate how effin’ gorgeous the Cathedral backgrounds are.

Also, God Help the Outcasts is the most honest song featured in a Disney movie. “Honest” meaning it doesn’t feel manufactured specifically to be played in a suburbanite van ferrying kids to McDonalds. It’s raw, open, and genuine.

(Needless to say, there is nothing suburban about Hellfire, ho ho ho. Will we ever again see a Disney villain essentially sing, “Help me Mary, I have an unholy erection?”)

Filed under q the hunchback of notre dame Disney I love the music in this movie the animation is okay and the story is pretty good but the music is just WHOA I always wanted to do a marching band show with this score start out with just the pit at the beginning of The Bells of Notre Dame then have the whole band come in still get chills thinking about it such good music this makes my ears happy

The Princess is everything Luke wants to be. She is socially conscious, whereas he is thrown into things; intellectually, she is a strong leader, and he is just a kid.

- George Lucas

People often talk about how Han influenced Luke, but we should also look at how Leia influenced Luke.

(via apolla-savre)

I’ve always really liked this idea—that they’re the exact same age, but their different lives have given them very different levels of maturity, and Luke is envious, but fascinated, and idolizes her a bit.

(via another-skywalker)

It’s kind of weird to think of Han as being a big influence compared to Leia.  I mean, yes, they were close.  But it’s made reasonably obvious that close male friends aren’t something Luke’s ever lacked.  If anything, I’d say they’re mutually influential.  Han’s experience and training help temper Luke’s youth and inexperience, and his cynicism demands that Luke account for his own faith. Luke, in turn, cracks Han’s shell with hope and faith, and his earnest belief that Han can be better than what he’s let himself become won’t let him crawl back into the hole he’s dug for himself.

But Leia?

I mean, come on.  Luke’s got these vague intentions to run away and do…something.  He’s dissatisfied with his home life, he’s dissatisfied with the future he sees for himself, and he resents, in an equally vague way, the expectations of his family.  He thinks of joining the rebellion because he’s romanticized it.   He thinks of going to the academy because it’s anywhere but where he’s at.  All of his ambitions amount to this sort of nebulous, Anything But What I Have aspiration.  He goes running after Kenobi on the strength of a shitty, recorded hologram because it seems exciting.  He has no real idea about what this sort of mission would entail, or cost, or achieve.  It’s an Adventure, and he’s bored.

Then he meets Leia, and she’s literally everything he ever had some mindless daydream about being.  Only instead of being a cardboard cut-out hero in some story he’s using to distract himself from a shitty frontier subsistence-farmer life, she’s a real person who’s actually fucking doing it.  She’s a leader.  She’s a fighter.  She’s risking life and limb for a cause she completely and utterly understands and absolutely believes in.  This isn’t some thing she ran away to do because she got sick of being a princess and a senator.  People look up to her, and follow her, and obey her, because she’s spent her life earning it.

He’s looking around and going “Empire bad?  We blow up ships?” and she’s going “Here’s ten political treatises on why the Empire needs to go, here are the details of troop movements and expected reinforcements and supply lines for the upcoming battle, and here are the family photos of everybody in the next ten systems that are going to get stomped into bloody paste in retaliation if we fail here.” He finds her, and within five minutes she’s gone from the princess he’s rescuing because that’s what action heroes do to the person he needs to emulate if he’s ever going to make something of himself.

i think what this all boils down to is: his sister is his hero.

Amazing images. The TIME & Bloomberg Businessweek cover photos were both taken by Scott Olson (Getty Images) who was arrested by the St. Louis PD during the protests and later released. The New Yorker painting was done by New York artist Eric Drooker.

Autopsy report: Victor White III shot in the chest, not back | KATC.com | Acadiana-Lafayette, Louisiana

invisiblelad:

blue-author:

blacksupervillain:

Remember when the police said this man shot himself while handcuffed in the back of their police car?

Turns out they were lying

…the autopsy report still concludes that it was a suicide.

They recognized that this young man with his hands cuffed behind his back was shot in the chest, but they still say that he did it.

I don’t know. You’d think the professional credibility of a coroner would be rated on trying to pass this fiction off as something that is in any way possible. The curious problem is how many people have “committed suicide” while in a cop car just the same way.

I don’t know why cover ups, deceit and misinformation have to be so intrinsically tied to police work…but there it is.

CASTIEL This place is a nexus of human reproduction. It’s exactly the kind of-(Castiel watches Dean put ketchup on his cheeseburger) -of garden the Cupid will come to— to pollinate.
(Dean puts his cheeseburger back down)
SAM Wait a minute. You’re not hungry?
DEAN No. What? I’m not hungry.
CASTIEL Then you’re not gonna finish that? (takes Dean’s cheeseburger.)( looking toward a couple at a table across the room) He’s here.

SAM I thought famine meant starvation, like as in, you know, food.
CASTIEL Yes. Absolutely. But not just food. I mean, everyone seems to be starving for something—Sex, attention, drugs, love…

and then: 

DEAN Are you serious?
CASTIEL These make me…very happy.
DEAN How many is that?
CASTIEL I lost count. It’s in the low hundreds. What I don’t understand is…where is your hunger, Dean?
DEAN Huh?
CASTIEL Well, slowly but surely, everyone in this town is falling prey to Famine, but so far, you seem unaffected.
DEAN Hey, when I want to drink, I drink. When I want sex, I go get it. Same goes for a sandwich or a fight.
CASTIEL So…you’re saying you’re just well-adjusted?
DEAN God, no. I’m just well-fed. Look there.

Ok. Dean IS affected by Famine.  He is well fed, yes, but that does not leave him unaffected. Everyone, each person began craving what they did not allow themselves in their daily lives. Some people sex, others food, love, attention, whatever it is in their day to day life that they sacrifice for whatever reason… These people were craving it and seeking it fiercely.
Dean, however, seems to have his cravings dulled. He is, as he states, typically easy and quick to fulfill his own cravings. “When I want to drink, I drink. When I want sex, I go get it. Same goes for a sandwich or a fight.”
What Dean is experiencing as an effect of Famine is an absence of cravings. He is quite literally craving Abstinence. He is craving the loss of every craving he has ever fed. 
"I’m well fed." He says.
Dean, honey, you are fasting.

This is the first meta on Dean’s “hunger” that I’ve read that I can get behind.

WIP Wednesday - Fanfic Edition

sheliesshattered:

Today was once again taken over by The Medical Napping That Would Not End (now in week eight!) so I didn’t really get any sewing done, but my wacky sleeping schedule is letting me get a little writing in after dark, my favorite writing time but when I’m usually in too much pain to write for long.  So I thought today I’d post a little excerpt from a fanfic I’ve been working on off and on for about a year now.

Despite being somewhat over the show OUAT itself, I still love the characters (and all their potential the show is wasting), and I’ve been a RumBelle shipper from the start — gif sets of these two is what convinced me to watch the show in the first place (thanks Tumblr!).  This is the first section of a RumBelle fic inspired by the song Sometime Around Midnight by The Toxic Airborne Event.  It’s second-person Rumplestiltskin point of view, post-pilot canon-divergent AU, picking up from when Emma is checking into the inn at the end of the first episode.  General audiences rating if you’re concerned.

I’m curious if there’d be interest in me finishing and posting the whole thing to AO3, so let me know what you think. :)

The World Is Falling Around You

You just have to see her,

You just have to see her,

You know that she’ll break you in two.

Swan.  Emma Swan.

The name tears through your mind like a thunder clap, throwing open doors and blowing out windows long nailed shut, upending everything and then shaking it violently into a new – old – sense of order.  Just as you intended.  Just as you planned, all those long, lonely years ago.
