oh my god i’m fucking sick of this generation’s mentality that your sadness is beautiful and somebody will fix you and all this fucking john green shit nobody will find you in a bookstore reading bukowski and want to lie with you and nobody will kiss your scars and you will not be like effie and freddie you’ve got to be your own fucking hero and surround yourself with positivity
Fiction seems to be more effective at changing beliefs than nonfiction, which is designed to persuade through argument and evidence. Studies show that when we read nonfiction, we read with our shields up. We are critical and skeptical. But when we are absorbed in a story, we drop our intellectual guard. We are moved emotionally, and this seems to make us rubbery and easy to shape.

Watch the entire “Let It Go” scene from Frozen featuring Idina Menzel performing as Elsa.
If you don’t wanna go see Frozen, this is the best 3:39 of the movie (except the short that plays beforehand). What a jam.
goosebumps every time!
Oh god Sarah you are so right
This character is basically Elphaba and Let it Go = No Good Deed
Biggest difference? Idina’s voice does not match this character or it’s expressions.
A voice so strong was not meant for a character so cotton candy soft. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY DIDN’T MAKE HER EMOTIONAL RANGE LARGE ENOUGH TO MATCH THE INTENSITY OF THE MUSIC??? The song is good, yeah. But the energy in the scene from this character design makes me cringe. It’s fucking Rapunzel trying to sing a song from Wicked fucking fuck what.
This was really lazy, Disney.
Elsa is an Elphaba copy
i think the big problem with the emotional range is the fact that they literally went out of their way to not make her face contort with the emotional waves of the song, because they wanted to make her stay “pretty”. if you watch Idina Menzel sing, well, pretty much anything, but especially her songs from Wicked, she is EMOTING. she is earnestly performing ev-ry sing-le syll-a-ble. she’s not “attractive” when she does it, but that doesn’t matter, because you’re not looking at her for her face, you’re looking for the feeling.
if you watch the video, the song kills, but the disconnect comes from the fact that elsa isn’t emoting. and this goes right along with all the problems of the production. it’s quite obvious the animators don’t care enough, because you have this intense song being sung by this powerhouse of a performer, and they aren’t trying to make the match; it’s all halfhearted.
and elsa, if you ask me, is a poor-man’s elphaba, because she’s not emoting. when i listen to wicked, i respond, because i hear the emotions and i remember seeing how it was performed; i cried during defying gravity because of the performance. when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.
toni is always better at saying what I want to say so reblogging again
and you know what? It’s sad when the most emotional part of the song happens when you can’t see the character’s face:
THAT STOMP WAS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF THE WHOLE SCENE WHEN THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN:
SHE IS LIFTING A GODDAMN SHOW PALACE
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FUCKING COOL
LOOK AT HER. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC. AND CRINGE AT THE UNCOMFORTABLE DISPLACEMENT OF IT ALL WITH ME
“when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.”
Y E S
((also this was the only song scene in the movie that actually made me feel anything….and now that I see it out of context it’s really mediocre, but compared to everything else, it was amazing and I called it “phenomenal” in my liveblog @_@))
The last shot is particularly guilty. Her weird bedroom eyed sexy face seemed kinda outta place.
It’s weird, because it makes me feel almost frustrated for the animators themselves, because was the rigging purposely limited so there couldn’t be as much squash and stretch/pose pushing/etc without going “off model”? Or was it a purposeful direction from the get go? Or just in the animation stage? Hrm.
I’ve yet to watch the movie a third time to focus solely on animation (I know I’m a sad person and shitty animator for it), but now that I’m looking at screenshots and remembering the scene in general, it’s kinda irksome, seeing as during the other songs, Anna had more of a emoting face? Hrmmmmmmm.
Anonymous asked: Are there any deaths on Supernatural that you wish didn't happen?
Meg meg meg meg meg meg meg megmeg megmegmegmemgemge gmegmegm
Meg. Her death served no purpose and pointlessly killed off the LONGEST LIVING CHARACTER ON THE SHOW. she was the character we clung to going “okay, well, this show and quite a number of its fans are painfully sexist, but at least we have meg!” and then they brought her back specifically just to kill her ugh ugh so mad forever mad she was the best okay she was so interesting and had so much character development and she was so cool and fun and bad ass and unapologetic but nooooo a pretty man that fans like fell in love with her so off with her head laksjdhalksjdh sorry still so mad
and Henriksen, WE COULD’VE HAD IT ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL. the running from the feds arc of the first three seasons was my favorite okay. forever sad that it’s gone now. love love loved it. it added a bit more of a sense of realism to their lives. that like you can’t just get away with all the shit they do. and how awesome would it have been to have a man on the inside after jus in bello like wiping security footage of them and calling them up and being like CAN YOU TWO AT LEAST LOOK FOR SURVEILLANCE FIRST JFC and tossing them cases that have been filling up the unsolved cabinets ugh
also Pamela, she’s my homegirl. sometimes I’ll just think about if she was still alive, how if they called her for some help, how fast she would tell them to fuck off and hang up on them because they are bad news for her but she’d end up doing it anyways because she can’t say no to a chance to touch sam’s butt again god bless her
but yeah meg, meg for a million years
