Mamoru Hosoda’s The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (時をかける少女) was first released on July 15, 2006.

This movie was released to a small number of theaters in Japan, taking in approximately 300 million yen (US$3 million). The film wasn’t advertised as frequently as other animation features from 2006 (such as “Tales from Earthsea”), but word of mouth and glowing reviews generated interest. At Theatre Shinjuku for days in a row, film-goers would fill the theater, some even standing to watch the film. Following this, distribution company Kadokawa Herald Pictures took unprecedented measures to increase the number of theaters showing the film across Japan, and sent the film to several international festivals.

I was scared of the idea of the Ring video getting uploaded to Youtube for about five seconds before I thought of it going viral and about a million people watching it and poor overworked Samara rushing from phone to phone trying to do her thing and eventually going corporate and hiring an entire office full of phone operators who field calls like it’s been seven days where are you and Samara crawls out of a laptop, kind of out of breath, looks back at what the other tab was and looks back at the dude she’s meant to be killing like really. You got the call seven days ago why are you watching that

Maybe Samara invests in a more business appropriate wardrobe, or maybe her staff all wear long white dresses and bitch about the ridiculous work dress code. I keep tripping over it, says one, and another’s like well at least she hasn’t got us all wearing our hair long and full of pondweed.

IRL jobs headcanons

Noctis:

  • The son of a rich Japanese businessman, but his mother was a foreigner
  • introverted because he was bullied in school about having a foreigner parent, barely finished high school and never went to college
  • but it’s okay because he is actually the world’s highest ranking gamer in Monster Justice Five, the most popular online e-sport tournament
  • with several official international wins and contracts to his username this boy doesn’t need daddy’s allowance!
  • nobody has a clear image of what he looks like, he’s always wearing baseball caps and hiding behind his collar if he has to show up to matches, otherwise he’s only found online
  • met Prompto online and it grows into private chats and late-night gaming sessions
  • eventually invites him over to visit, dad thinks it’s great that his loner son found someone he wants to hang out with
  • not very good with words because he constantly switches between Japanese and English and it’s hard to use just one

Prompto:

  • Russian
  • you’d assume he’s popular because he’s blonde and cheerful, but actually gets a lot of flak about things he can’t change about his country
  • the literal embodiment of sunshine and happiness, so naturally he’s a famous viner (who moved to instagram and youtube after vine died)
  • has no idea how to deal with the haters, always has his comments locked and it creates an air of mystery around him which strangely gets him more views
  • absolute weeb so you can bet he knows enough japanese (from watching anime obv) to communicate with Noct in the game chat and enough english to patch it up
  • it quickly developed into actual friendship, these two can spend days playing without realizing it
  • soon enough he’s vlogging his trip to Japan!

Ignis:

  • European
  • That’s all he tells the others, nobody knows where he’s from exactly
  • Used to be a model in Milan, beautiful enough to catch eyes but not famous enough to make a living out of it
  • Meets Noctis while filming an advertisement for his father’s company, and settles there as an English-Japanese translator
  • Ends up going with Noct for all the official signings and interviews as his PR agent
  • Ignis knows more kanji than Noct, but Noct knows more English expletives
  • it fascinates him how different languages are, and enjoys the challenge
  • other times it’s hilarious because that one time he tried to translate a Japanese word and accidentally said something Italian, then corrected it into French, then apologized in Spanish and eventually googled it in English.

Gladio:

  • Brazillian-Japanese who lived all his life in Brazil
  • professional rock wall climber on break recovering from an injury, the fall woke him to the reality that he’d never really left his hometown and it’s a shame to kick the bucket without ever stepping out of his comfort zone
  • he’s currently vlogging his journey backpacking through the world
  • one day he found himself broke visiting Cor -a family friend- in Japan
  • had to take odd jobs that wouldn’t get him deported for defying the rules of his tourist visa, so nothing with an official contract
  • agrees to dress in a suit and pretend to be a bodyguard for some publicity stunt concerning a sassy runt
  • said sassy runt was actually being stalked for being the heir of a business giant and oh shit he has some real protecting to do!
  • Brazil has a large Japanese population so verbal and cultural barriers went down real fast with the runt (Noct)
  • It was nice learning about his non-Brazillian heritage hands on, so he decides to stick around long after the bodyguard job is concluded
  • the internet seems to like his vlogs about the Japanese countryside and wilderness anyway so might as well let this trip fund itself

One day a rival company proposes a collaboration between brands and Regis accepts, now Noct has to show up in a month-long documentary with the rival’s production team while they come up with ideas for a new line.

Noct is fine with it, the head of the team they’ll be working with used to be a childhood friend of his, Lunafreya, so he agrees to go and take his friends along because road trip!

This is kinda a wonky question, but I don't really understand all the controversy about Autism Speaks? Could you help me out if you know? If not that's totally cool thanks for acknowledging me. You're so cool omg

Pfft thank you xD 

Too sum it up quickly here’s a video they made, with the narrator supposedly being autism itself (If you get upset easily don’t watch it (I can’t watch the full thing)

Former Autism Speaks board member Harry Slatkin, whose wife, Laura, continues to serve on the Board of Directors, stated in an interview with Town and Country while still a board member that sometimes he hoped their autistic son David would drown in the backyard pond rather than “suffer like this all his life.” Evidencing a pattern of similarly violent rhetoric, Autism Speaks is also responsible for the 2006 PSA “Autism Every Day“ in which their then Vice President states on camera that she considered putting her autistic daughter in the car and driving off a bridge, and that the only reason she refrained from doing so was because her other, non-autistic daughter would have been waiting for her at home—her autistic daughter was in the room as she made these statements. Furthermore, the producer of this PSA explicitly admitted that the film was intentionally staged to portray negative images of autistic people and their families.

Only four days following the release of “Autism Every Day,” pathologist Karen McCarron smothered her autistic daughter with a garbage bag. McCarron stated that she murdered Katie because her “autism had not been improving,” had thought about killing Katie, that made an earlier brief attempt at suffocation, wanted to cure Katie, thought killing Katie would make her “complete” in heaven, and wanted to live without autism and thus had to kill Katie. Investigators found that McCarron was obsessed with different treatments for Katie. (See People v. FRANK-McCARRON, 934 NE 2d 76 - Ill: Appellate Court, 3rd Dist. 2010.) Though it is not presently possible to draw a direct connection between Autism Speaks’ PSA and Katie’s murder, this crime and dozens like it only underscore how the kind of rhetoric that Autism Speaks favors only serves to recklessly endanger the lives of autistic people.

(source article)

Autism Speaks also publicly supports the Judge Rotenberg Center, a group home for autistic and neurodivergent students that uses “treatments” like food and sleep deprivation and electric shock to try and train the residents into acting neurotypical. The center has changed states three times in an attempt to bypass regulation against abusive treatment, and their practices have resulted in the deaths of more than one student.

(x)

  • Autism Speaks does not have a single autistic member on their board.
  • Autism Speaks only spends 4% of their budget on “family services”.
  • Much of Autism Speaks’ money goes toward research, and much of that research centers on finding a way to eliminate autism, and thus, autistics (which will likely be done through a prenatal test, in the same way that the Down’s Syndrome test is conducted).
  • Autism Speaks produces advertisments, small films, etc. about what a burden autistic people are to society.
  • Autism Speaks was responsible for “Autism Every Day”, which featured a member of their board talking about contemplating murder-suicide of her daughter in front of her daughter. This has now be removed from Autism Speaks’ Youtube channel.
  • Autism Speaks is responsible for the atrocity known as “I am Autism”, a short film produced by the same person who directed the 3rd Harry Potter movie (yes, really) and features an ominous voice saying things like “I am autism…I know where you live…I work faster than pediatric AIDS, cancer, and diabetes combined…I will make sure your marriage fails.”

For further reading, here are a few resources about Autism Speaks:

Here are a few other terrible things that Autism Speaks has done recently.

  • This woman’s job offer was rescinded after she asked Autism Speaks for accommodations in caring for her autistic son.  They refused, and she made necessary accommodations for childcare, but they withdrew her offer anyways.
  • Autism Speaks shared the news of Google removing hate speech regarding autistics from Google’s autofill feature, completely erasing any mention of autistic people’s flashblogs having anything to do with the change.  It was only after a member of the autism community (and not a parent, but an autistic person themselves) spoke with a reporter about the flashblog and a statement was released to the media that Google decided to make this change.
  • Autism Speaks highlighted AAC use, while erasing those those who actually use AAC devices to communicate.  The focus was on the caretakers, not on the autistic people themselves. (The attached link has a link to a rebuttal by a nonspeaking autistic person, Amy Sequenzia).

In short: Its a hate group disguised as a charity and my god I want it to end

This is why I like getting SNL episodes that were recorded on the day they aired with commercials left in.  This was from Season 10 (1984-85), I just saw a commercial advertising the film “The Breakfast Club”.  Pretty cool stuff.
