adapt to it

@lizamezzo replied to your post: Something that I really wasn’t expecting in Scenes…

In the opera, the reason Rodolfo meets Mimi in Act I is that, when his friends go to Momus to celebrate Schaunard’s dead-parrot payday, he’s staying behind to write an article for a journal called “The Beaver”, which I assume is paid work. Mimi makes artificial flowers in her attic garret. By Act 3, Marcello and Musetta are renting a room in a tavern at the Barrière d'Enfer; we see him painting the tavern’s sign while she teaches singing. So the Bohemians in the opera do take odd jobs.

Thank you for the detail!
Yeah,”The Beaver” is a trade magazine about hats. Rodolphe mostly makes his money writing for it and for The Scarf of Iris, another fashion mag. He never complains about it, either, except in the way anyone complains about work (”ugh, don’t wannnaaaaa”). 

Sounds like it’s just RENT, then! How very odd. 

seeing Beauty and the Beast in hyper-realistic CGI has forced me to re-evaluate the entire concept of the movie. Like the whole “talking furniture” thing was adorable & COOL in animated-form, but in reality it’s like a fuckin horror movie. You’re trapped in a place where cups have EYES and literally anything could’ve been an ex-person. That spoon you just licked clean? A person. That chair you’ve been sitting on? Practically someone’s LAP. That toilet in your bathroom? Oh-ho-hooo bOY DO I HAVE SOME NEWS FOR YOU.  

Dear Hollywood:

There are anime shows/manga series that you can adapt and cast with white people. For instance: Full Metal Alchemist, Attack on Titan, Black Butler, Baccano, Cowboy Bebop, Helsing, Rose of Versailles, Princess Tutu and an anime that’s airing right now (and I love it!) called ACCA 13. All of these take place outside of Japan and have predominatly white characters. Adapt them.

Anime/manga like Death Note and Ghost in the Shell are deeply ingrained in Japanese culture. You can’t adapt them with a white cast and expect them to still have the same meaning. Do better.

They didn’t understand it, but like so many unfortunate events in life, just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean it isn’t so.
