and i cried because of the beauty

For me, in terms of story and quality, Moana deserved it much more. Moana just had so many “wow” moments like where I cried, got chills, or just had to take a breath to take it all in. It was just so beautiful with every element that got put in it: the voices, the story, the music, the culture.  

I feel like the only reason Zootopia won was because of the messages it had in it, but I don’t think the theme should be the sole reason that the movie should win. Both Moana and Zootopia did wonderfully animation wise, but I think, compared to Moana, Zootopia falls flat. It needs to take in account, not just the message/theme, but also the story and the structure the narrative, the voice acting, the script, the music, etc. With this, I think Moana had much stronger elements.

Zootopia had an important message about poc, but they gave us that message by pretty much telling straight out, “Hey, don’t judge people without knowing them/accept everyone despite race, stereotypes, etc” 

But Moana had much more than that.They showcased poc that are rarely seen in movie entertainment, celebrated their culture, and showed how beautiful, loving, and heartfelt the people of that culture are through their story telling- all around a theme of following your heart/finding out who you are.

There was more to Moana than just the message of the movie, and that’s why they should have won the Oscar.

helP ME, IM DYING AGAIN FROM INSOMNIA

I fUCCED UP MY SLEEP SCHEDULE
AND USUALLY I FALL ASLEEP BUT SINCE I HAD A WEEK OF WINTER BREAK FROM SCHOOL, I BEEN STAYING UP TILL 3 OR 4 AM

DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY TIPS OF FORCING OF THE BEAUTY SLEEP-

*BECAUSE I FUCKING NEED IT;;*

The Oscars

idk about u guys but I’m really disappointed that Andrew Garfield didn’t win best actor for Hacksaw Ridge (although I think Casey Affleck was pretty good in Manchester by the Sea). Also, PLEASE WATCH ARRIVAL. Honestly my favourite movie of 2016 and it only won an award for sound editing :(

So yeah, go watch Hacksaw Ridge and Arrival right now! Two incredible films that I think deserved all the awards ever. Ooh, also Moana was ASTOUNDING. I cried at least 4 times while watching it because it’s so beautiful n heartwarming, so pls watch.

I’ll have to watch Moonlight too, as I haven’t had a chance yet, but with all the buzz around it I’m really glad it won best picture (since it’s so important and amazing to be putting an all black cast/gay coming of age movie in the spotlight!)

I do feel like Moana was snubbed the Oscar for best song because that movie is a work of art and the music is beautiful and deserved at least one award

Feelings after RDC3

So, it ended, and that makes me so sad. A part of me just wants to stay in the little fantasy world that seems to be this con. Being at a place where everyone loves the same thing, where you are not crazy for loving a crazy show about cannibalism and murder but also love and lonliness… I don’t know it just feels amazing.
I’m so happy that I decided to come despite the fact that being surrounded by a lot of strangers terrifies me, and that it takes so much effort to dare to say hi to someone. And I’m sad that it ended just when I was starting to get comfortable.
But everything was worth it just to be able to witness how amazing the fannibals are irl and how beautiful and talented they are.
And let me tell you that I almost cried everytime Bryan talked, because I cannot belive he exists and how lucky we are to have him. He is the biggest fan and that’s a blessing.

I don’t know if I’ll write something more detailed when I get home (and get some needed sleep) describing everything, but I will say this:
FANNIBALS ARE FANTASTIC! And I hope I can come again next year and have the courage to talk to more and more of you and make new friends. I LOVE YOU ALL!

“I’m just surprised to see you cry.”

things i loved about moana

-chief moana, not princess moana
-david bowie crab was fab
-moana and maui putting their hair up in BUNS while doing shit like wow that’s such a little thing but so realistic
-moana cried A LOT and i loved it like it wasn’t really ever a “helpless princess moment” where they cry because it’s the low point of the movie. she cried when she was happy, when she was sad, when she was angry, when she was confused like a lot but it was just really nice to see from someone who cries like 24/7
-the music holy shit
-like from the opening song my jaw dropped it was just so beautiful
-stingray grandma every damn time was beautiful
-sassy beautiful ocean
-moana and maui’s friendship
-te fiti and te ka are AWESOME

Just a lot of good shit honestly go watch moana

Jungkook’s Perfect Imperfections

So recently my precious baby bun has been getting shit about his skin because he has acne. Which EVERYONE has dealt with at least once in their life, or still is dealing with it. It’s not a big deal, it’s just skin, it doesn’t change what an amazing person Jungkook is. And honestly I love his acne, it just makes him normal and human. Every imperfection he has, in my eyes, just makes him even more perfect so that’s why I’m making this appreciation post about his perfect imperfections which I adore with all my heart 

His facial scar 

i love it so much it just makes him even more handsome asdfghjkl 

look how cute it looks, i just wanna kiss it 

my heart hurts because of how adorable he is

His knee scars 

PLS JUNGKOOK. SITTING LIKE THAT IS GONNA KILL ME 

id have a few knee scars because of him if you know what i mean *wink wink* im so sorry 

two angels istg

I love Jungkook with every fiber of my being and all I wanna do is protect him. If anyone hates on him I will fite them. He is not disgusting, he is not overrated, he is none of the things I‘ve seen these assholes call him. He is the most sweetest, talented, caring human being alive and I’m just so happy to be around at the same time as him to watch him grow and shine. ❤️

Sherlock is such a beautiful character. He loves dogs and bees and dancing and kids. He dresses up and makes jokes and tries so, so hard to get off drugs. He helps people who need it and cares so deeply that it hurts him and he loves john watson more than anything in the world. He loves the stars and science and romance and flowers. He never is on the offence until attacked. He has a mask that can oh so easily be stripped away because he will do anything to make John happy. He pretends to hate james bond movies. He plays board games. He forgets to eat. He gets lonely and sad until the moment the man who is the sun to him walks into the room. He cries and scrapbooks and plays the violin and wanted to be a pirate and makes his own job. He’s incredibly human.

I keep seeing this “dark sherlock” stuff going around my dash and it erases the beautiful character development he’s gone through. That isn’t Sherlock. It’s what you’d like him to be.

Since i havent seen anyone talk about this i think i would just like to point out that while yuuri is skating georgi is wearing this expression

Do you know why?

Because he understands

He understands that while yuuri is skating Yuri on Ice he is dedicating it to victor, his love for him, and is thinking of all the moments they have spent together and how victor has helped him so much from how he was last year. He wore the same expression while michele is skating because he knew he was skating because of his love for sara.

But georgi isnt the only one who noticed.

The commentators, the other skaters, mila, and im pretty sure even yakov knew that yuuri was skating because of his love for victor, some more so than others. What im saying is that people know and acknowledge that yuuri really loves victor and that he dedicated his entire FS to their relationship and how he has grown from it.

“I’m done fighting. I just want to go home.”

“You can’t go home, Julie. I’m sorry. We can go anywhere else in the whole universe, but we can’t go home. I need you to know, whatever happens, wherever you go, you’re not gonna do it alone.”

when I was 17 the first girl I’d ever loved told me if her parents found out about how I looked at her she’d be homeless. 
we cried for 2 days straight, 
and I told about concrete counter tops.
I told her about dark hardwood floors
with at least three knit blankets on every couch.
Our bedroom facing west 
because even though I love the sunrise, 
you look the best in our bed 
covered in nothing 
but the deep purple of sunset.
The library that would smell like our books 
had been there longer than our home had been standing on solid foundation, stone, reliable.
Sweet girl, I know they say not to make homes out of people 
but I don’t want anyone else’s dirty dishes on my counter.
I don’t want to take the trash out for anyone else at 11pm.
You’re the only person I’d race to kill a spider for in the shower.
How could you ever be without a home 
when every time I look at you I’m building ours.

There’s something indie about those pictures: otherworldly and contemplative. That day felt really spiritual because Ryan is so quiet and charming, and they really connected. Harry cried because he has really bad hay fever – and, while I was freaking out that his face would swell up, Ryan just kept it going. It ended up being so beautiful to see him crying like that – and when you work with someone as spontaneous as Ryan, that’s when those magical moments happen.

How can she seem to have fallen from heaven
when I’m the one that has fallen,
the one that’s all in,
while her mind is a weapon

And God, I am already in too deep
because she is just too beautiful
and everything I seek
while I’m a fool

And while she is kissing all those boys
that appear to her as pretty toys
my heart tattoos cries of desperation against my ribs

How should I ever enjoy life’s sweet kiss
when she is everything I miss
and most of all her gorgeous lips?
