hey guess what guys! every single post on this website? is not directed at you personally. For example (since this just came up) if someone has posted a list of political actions “you” could take, and you stumble across that list on yoru dash, understand that that “you” is general and nonspecific and OP probably doesn’t even know you!! If those actions are inaccessible to you personally? that post is probably not directed at you :D. Woooo! awesome. (but hey, if you want to reblog it for followers you might have who *could* find it useful, then you can do that! without being a hypocrite!) We don’t all have the resources to be politically active every day or even every week and thats ok. its also still OK to post lists of actions people COULD take if they happen to have the means, energy, and mental stability to do so!
This applies to other shit as well. Every post is not about you. If you’re feeling personally affronted and attacked and CALLED OUT by someone who doesn’t even know you, take a step back, ask yourself if maybe this post is not for you?? Yes this can be difficult, esp if u got anxiety and stuff (believe me i do know!) but there is such exquisite tranquility to be found in not taking it personally!!! Join me friends. Join me.
to this day, i still wonder how exactly the production for the 2012 lorax really went down. there’s not much record about it, at least that i could find, but honestly, looking at the earlier concepts, you can see that it was originally intended to be pretty different than what ended up on screen.
which by itself it’s pretty normal, of course. movies often change greatly from their original concept during production, sometimes retaining only the most basic set-up of what once was, but what i truly mean is that we know for sure that the lorax was, at one point, a movie that seriously considered including a rock opera villain ballad such as this
yet somehow the song intended for this exact same sequence ended up being. well. this
and i just want to know what was lost in the transition there because in my opinion, there is no way that the cutesy and sickeningly cheery lorax that we know could have even intended to include a song like the first one in it. this belongs to a very different movie.
