Fanart for @pan-pizza , small pixel art of him and goth queen in a, attempted video game level up cutscene.
the game plot would be like this: “SHIT GOT REAL AND ALL THE CUTE GOTH GIRLS GOT KIDNAPPED BY AN ASSHOLE, ONLY OUR HERO WITH HIS NEVER ENDING LUST FOR GOTHS AND HIS POP CULTURE KNOWLEDGE CAN SAVE THEM BY BEATING his meat 13 EVIL BAD CARTOON REBOOT BOSSES”
::gives all the Shop OCs, especially Soup and Sphinx, a giant cake in their favorite flavor::
‘The Shop OCs’ are never a thing I thought I would get an ask for but I love it thank you anon they love their cakes!! (even if they weren’t as big as you described heh) (Side note, the sphinx!sona’s name is is now Sand!)
Main reason I decided to watch Okja was because of Choi Woo Shik’s special appearence and Kevin Yeun hehe to my surprise Devon Bostick was in it as well!! ♥ (Rodrick from Diary of a Wimpy Kid)
Okja, a Korean - American film directed by Bong Joon Ho
As we all know Korean movies tend to be realistic and not have the typical happy-ever-after ending. So I watched it knowing that it might end tragically and depressing. One thing that is interesting about this movie is that it talks about GMO. Ever since I was in middle school I did projects about GMO and even had a time when I would check every label (on food) around the house to make sure we did not consume any of that stuff. Is not that GMO is entirely bad, there are benefits, but each person has a choice to consume it or not. And of course I chose not to. I actually don’t know if the GMO debate is still a thing, it’s been a while since I had free time to look up stuff and watch news..
I was exited that such a famous director created a project like this! The cast was well chosen as well. The scenery was beautiful, the transition from the east to the west was awesome…I was just impressed…flabbergasted… it was truly a beautiful…bittersweet film.
Before watching the film I joked about me becoming vegan or vegetarian. The thing about this movie is that it shows the public a glimpse of what happens to animals when they are being mass produced and slaughtered for our consumption. I know that as humans we separate animals into categories, pet, non-pet… our pets are family… non-pets are food. Simple as that. But this story is about this adorable super-pig (Okja) who was created in a lab. She is considered a pet to the owner Mija, but neither know about the cruelty in food industry and why Okja exists.
I’ll start with a quote from the director Bong Joon Ho
“I wanted to crumble these borders and make the audience feel uncomfortable. It is witnessing your family being dragged into a slaughterhouse”
There were scenes that did make me feel uncomfortable and I cried so much as well. Both Okja and Mija are so innocent.. yet throughout their journey, they mature in a very painful way. Do you know how we get our food? Do you know how babies are born? SEX. in animals it is called “mating”. We all know that in order to “reproduce”, there needs to be mating. But as humans we don’t take a moment to think about whether the animal has feeling or not. Humans just pair the animals up randomly and breed them. The way it was filmed.. it looked like rape. Do you guys know how painful that was to watch. It broke my heart, because throughout the first half of the movie, they make sure you fall in love with this adorable, sweet and innocent super-pig. And it is like her innocence is taken away from her. As I mentioned before… pets = family… it was like watching a family member being raped and about to be slaughtered.
I obviously got too emotional with this movie. I will stop now before I spill the whole movie.. It is great please do watch it ♥
By the way, just in case yall don’t know… I am pretty sure the name of the company Mirando was inspired by Monsanto… look it up hehe.
Also.. the movie does have a slight comical relief ^^ the ALF, they are the animal rights group, during several of the most serious moments..they would do/say something dumb.
And~ uri Wooshik-ah joins the squad at the end ♥
one more thing… Shirley Henderson is in it too!!! the crying ghost from Harry Potter! AND it was produced by Brad Pitt!
This documentary: ALL MEAT causes cancer. ALL PLANTS cure cancer. You don’t need doctors or medical school or anything when you can go vegan. Veganism is the one true religion. Make your cats and dogs vegan too. Listen to all these people who agree with me that veganism is The Ultimate Best And Only Way To Live ™. If you’re not vegan, you are a moron.
Like UGH yes I get it, you think going vegan is good. Yes I get it you made a documentary to make your voice sound louder. Yes I get it, I know what your opinions are about veganism. But SO????? Is there any data to back that up? What’s the credibility of the data? Is there any data to show that meat kills everyone? Are the data shown the full picture or is it nitpicked excerpts deliberately to paint it in its ugliest form? Is meat REALLY only evil? Are you honestly saying that meat has absolutely ZERO benefits at all? And how convenient of you to NOT show any possible negative effects or shortcomings of going vegan? If you only pick out excerpts of negative effects of meat along with a scary background music narrated with full scepticism and conspiracy theories, meanwhile you show people talk about how hoping vegan made them see god and they’re all smiling with some upbeat happy music in the background, then no fucking shit it LOOKS like veganism is God’s saviour. But that’s coz you choreographed the whole thing to deliberately control people’s perception.
This is exactly why, no matter what message they try to pull - be it veganism or religion or social culture or whatever - I will immediately distrust the credibility of the documentary if it’s so blatantly obvious that the documentary only concerns itself with its own personal M.O. rather than focusing on disseminating unbiased information.
