Best lesson from a Disney movie
This is an underrated movie
This is a grossly underrated movie.
Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.
I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”
You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women.
And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog.
So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes.
when you realize we all turned into squidward
Ad Libitum by David Redon
For Ads Libitum, the French artist David Redon has taken modern-day pop-culture icons and appropriated them for classic 1950s American adverts and wartime propaganda posters.
"For me, artists are like adverts for the people," Redon told us. "They care very much about their image and every detail is calculated, like in advertising. And artists have always been associated with advertising, because they are heroes to people who aspire to be something else. I think that art and advertising are very close today, artists have to sell like advertisers, advertisers use artists to be attractive, and artists use advertising techniques to touch more people."
You sure you don’t want a horse?
Why would I want a horse?
Horses are faster than men.
Horses are dumber than men.
Let’s accept that Pod got the best deal :D
