Sorry, it's just me.

Generally trying to find normal, maybe something a little bit more, but I'm not particularly greedy - or optimistic.

    22 YEARS AGO ON DECEMBER 18, 1998 - DREAMWORKS ANIMATION RELEASED “THE PRINCE OF EGYPT

    Because DreamWorks was concerned about theological accuracy, they decided to call in Biblical scholars, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim theologians, and Arab American leaders to help the film be more accurate and faithful to the original story. After previewing the developing film, all these leaders noted that the studio executives listened and responded to their ideas, and praised the studio for reaching out for comment from outside sources.

    The animation team for The Prince of Egypt included 350 artists from 34 different nations. Careful consideration was given to depicting the ethnicities of the ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, and Nubians properly.

    Both character design and art direction worked to set a definite distinction between the symmetrical, more angular look of the Egyptians versus the more organic, natural look of the Hebrews and their related environments. The backgrounds department, headed by supervisors Paul Lasaine and Ron Lukas, oversaw a team of artists who were responsible for painting the sets/backdrops from the layouts. Within the film, approximately 934 hand-painted backgrounds were created.

    So apparently a lot of Twitter users are jumping ship and coming here (which is hilarious) and I’ve seen a lot of “welcome to tumblr” posts going around (also hilarious)

    But I don’t think I’ve seen a single one address how clout works on this app. Namely that it doesn’t exist. There’s no verification system. There’s no way to check how many followers someone else has. You can have 5 followers or 500,000 and no one is going to care either way.

    Also, simply being on tumblr negates any clout you may have elsewhere. Taylor Swift uses this app. No one cares.

    Yes this is a selling point

    No I'm not ashamed the White Woman ends up shifting the attention to her trauma and not the WoC she ignored when we constantly told her to stop profiting off of our traumas. That's her decision and her White tears. If she don't give a damn about us, including her ex Black friend she mocked for her trauma, why would I care?

    I mean you clearly didn’t watch the video which is your choice it’s just important to point out that you’re factually wrong. Also nobody’s telling you to care?

    Perhaps it is no wonder that the women were first at the Cradle and last at the Cross. They had never known a man like this Man - there never has been such another. A prophet and teacher who never nagged at them, never flattered or coaxed or patronised; who never made arch jokes about them, never treated them either as “The women, God help us!” or “The ladies, God bless them!”; who rebuked without querulousness and praised without condescension; who took their questions and arguments seriously; who never mapped out their sphere for them, never urged them to be feminine or jeered at them for being female; who had no axe to grind and no uneasy male dignity to defend; who took them as he found them and was completely unselfconscious.” // Dorothy L. Sayers

    i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake

    i learned that everyone in Singapore above the age of 21 is automatically registered as an organ donor. Opting out from this Act will result in you being put at the very bottom of the organ priority list, should you need an organ transplantation. (x)

    Some people have religious beliefs that require them not to give organs? This is a pretty fucked up practice actually.

    Me: “Living in a rural area means I am to far away to ride a bicycle to work and have to drive.”

    Like twenty people: “Then just take a bus, you gasoline-loving environment-hating lazy homicidal motorist.”

    none of you have ever left the city in your entire lives have you

    moodycow210

    In the country the bus is poorly maintained, has timetabling mainly designed for the elderly to get to the shops rather than for you to get to a destination in decent timing for work purposes (and that’s if the timetable on the bus stop has been ipdated in the last decade)

    glumshoe

    in my the country there just is no bus at all

    cleopatra-selene

    So many cities don’t have good transit systems too. I’ve lived in Chicago and Houston. Good luck bussing in Houston unless you’re in the main part of the metro and using transit instead of driving in Chicago added an hour to my husband’s commute.

    What exactly is inhumane that Trump did that isn’t currently happening under Biden???

    I mean you’re kidding right? The travel ban has ended, the keystone xl pipeline has been halted, transgendered people are no longer banned from the military, homeless shelters cannot refuse people on the basis of them being LGBT, terminated funding for federal private prisons, ended construction of the border wall, reinstated DACA, and health care providers cannot deny care to someone on the basis of them being LGBT. You may argue that ‘these weren’t inhumane’ but a lot of people think they were and they have been changed, so acting like biden has done nothing so far is pretty misleading.

    this show has EVERYTHING and deals with EVERY PROBLEM we are facing. Teen pregnancy, abortion, internalized homophobia, racism, asexuality, mental illness. You name it, Glee’s got it! on top of that, its representation central. i’m talking gay characters, bi characters, late-in-life virgins, a major character in a wheelchair, a character with Down’s Syndrome…there are even ASIANS. 

    on top of INSANE representation and relevant, important issues, GLEE has an INSANE original soundtrack full of classic hits AND cool top-40 all reimagined for the modern audience. 

    The best part?
