Zone 2 - Residential Area
(come on, it took so long and it’s so complex it deserves its own photoset)
The one thing that I never fully understood about FMA was the fact that Ed never got a military uniform. They literally let the little runt wear whatever.
1. They are stopping people from giving blood to protestors who are bleeding out
2. They are forcing doctors not to report number of deaths and injuries
3. They have hit people with real steel bullets instead of rubber one’s
4. They are sending severely injured people home without giving them proper treatment
HEY MINIONS so at the risk of you unfollowing/me sounding like a crazy person I’m going to ask you to do something very unusual today. I am going to ask you to watch a Barbie movie. (That’s it, up there. The whole thing. No really it’s like official no need to pirate it or anything how easy is that.)
WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THAT? Well okay so for one I am one of the two storyboard artists that worked on this (yes, two board artists, for a whole film, get that into your head I can hardly believe we managed it myself), but I am about to blow your mind with the more important detail that the other storyboarder was also the director and also the first female director that a Barbie film has had. Ever. Wow. I know. I knooooow.
So, tumblr, this is why Barbie and the Secret Door is important; this is the first Barbie film directed by a woman. Watch it. There is a super great villain, super cute giant purple furry minions with English accents and very bright super colourful colours all over the place just wait until you get to the magical place I stg you need sunglasses. There are also a lot of songs which will get stuck in your head and aggressive jive dancing.
I am not saying it is the best film, I am not saying that there aren’t other films that deserve your attention more, but there was a whole team of people behind this one gem of a lady trying our very best to make this film good, and you know what? I like it. There are many things that could be improved, yes, and there were decisions made by Mattel that we simply could not change whether we agreed with them or not, but that’s the case with every film, and this film saw a huge shift in the effort and direction of Barbie films. Tell Mattel what you want to see fixed, yes, but tell them that you want to see more of this; more women in control of pictures that are aimed towards young girls (because, let’s face it, these are). These films get translated into every language, they access a lot of people, these films can have influence. We need to be able to use this medium in a positive way, and we tried to, we really did try with this film. Barbie should be a positive icon for feminism; she has been before!
So, yes, please check this out if you have the time, and give Mattel and Rainmaker the feedback that they need!
I swear to god if you don’t love Romy and Nori, you are dead to me.
which nobody must tell Mattel;
I read the script and just pictured them as being a married couple so that’s how I treated the acting with them
there I said it
*1/4 through a fanfic* wait i’ve read this before
*2/4 through a fanfic* lol no i haven’t wtf is hapenning
* 3/4 through fanfic* OMG I’VE READ THIS BEFORE
Bernadine’s has always had a thing for trees. Has she finally found a tree that’s the one for her? Fingers crossed things get filthy!
the perfect book to read after watching guardians of the galaxy i reckon.
Sooo one of my mom’s colleagues and her kids went missing a few days ago, and like we didn’t know she was missing until we saw a missing notice posted on Facebook
… She’s not actually missing tho, she’s in hiding. From the exact same people who posted that missing notice, and who she definitely doesn’t want to be found by.
So a reminder to please please check this kind of thing before you share missing notices.
Ughhhh okay I work in a law enforcement field where we deal with a lot of missing persons and here’s why I don’t share things like this without a link to a LE press release or major national news outlet. IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A SOURCE, YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S LIFE.
LET ME REPEAT: IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A VERIFIABLE, LEGITIMATE SOURCE YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S FUCKING LIFE.
I know you think you are helping. I know you think a “signal boost” is the right thing to do. BUT PLEASE VERIFY BEFORE YOU SHARE.
Double goes for missing minors!!!!!!!!Predators and abusers put out things like this to get information on the whereabouts of their victims.
And don’t forget that just because a person is disabled doesn’t mean they aren’t being abused and trying to escape their abusers. In fact, disabled people are even more likely to be abused.
