Watch: These adorable kids in China performed a full-fledged live-action version of Mulan’s “Bring Honor to Us All”

Apparently, there’s a show on Chinese television that involves children re-enacting scenes from famous movies. We only know that because these kids absolutely crushed a live-action version of “Bring Honor to Us All” from Disney’s Mulan.

Hi, I’m Jack Zimmermann, captain of the hockey team. I’m sorry that we disrupted everyone’s studying in Founder’s Library earlier this afternoon when some of our members decided to re-enact the opening scene of The Lion King. Even if you weren’t there, I’m still sorry.

  • But still tries to put a blanket on you

On The Frontlines: A Weekend as a Civil War Reenactor

TIME reporter Nate Rawlings joins a group of devout reenactors at Gettysburg, in a season of reenactments honoring Civil War anniversaries.

Reenacting the American Civil War began even before the real fighting had ended. Civil War veterans recreated battles as a way to remember their fallen comrades and to teach others what the war was all about.  

Motion picture and television producers often turn to reenactment groups for support; films like Gettysburg, Glory and Gods and Generals benefited greatly from the input of reenactors, who arrived on set fully equipped and steeped in knowledge of military procedures, camp life, and tactics. 

In a documentary about the making of the film Gettysburg, actor Sam Elliott, who portrayed Union General John Buford in the film, said of reenactors:

“I think we’re really fortunate to have those people involved. In fact, they couldn’t be making this picture without them; there’s no question about that. These guys come with their wardrobe, they come with their weaponry. They come with all the accoutrements, but they also come with the stuff in their head and the stuff in their heart.”

Sometimes i think about the literal fucking torture that Proust put Andrew through, re-enacting trauma from his childhood and taking such utter advantage of him, and how ridiculously awful and horrible that is and i just

He’s so used to be abused and hurt that it barely even gave him pause. He got picked up by the monsters and went back to being the same dead, emotionless husk that he was before the drugs, like nothing had changed, because it hadn’t, this has been his entire life and i jUST

He was tortured for weeks and the angriest he got about it was getting mad at Neil for trying to sacrifice himself for him fuckin

Anonymous dagger plays from the Glasgow Fechtbuch

I have recently translated the plays from the Glasgow Fechtbuch (MS E.1939.65.341)

While I am improving in my translation I am still novice: The original text has been provided beside my translation.

This one contains no illustrations so a certain amount of excitement is missing from the material, however the actual content of the text is quite interesting. It is one of the more extensive dagger treatises from the german tradition, and (for a german source) gives a lot of emphasis to unarmed defenses against dagger.

In the beginning of the treatise is a few general rules-of-thumb for dagger fighting. Interestingly, it concludes the introduction with something to the tune of: “if he doesn’t attack you and waits out of distance, he has something tricky planned and you will need to use some of the following techniques.”

Quite a good document to add to your repertoire. As always, feedback on my translation is welcomed.

Hey, I don't know how to word this because I'm so afraid that it might sound offensive, I absolutely don't mean it that way! You have a lovely blog and I love the style and content ... but... is there any video that you'd recommend (on youtube) that wasn't edited and shows their "sweet vibes"? I've re-watched so many panels now but I can hardly see it. I'm sorry if that sounds like I'd try to find "something against it", I'm not! :) Just trying to see it the same way you guys do. :) Thank you!

don’t worry, that’s alright! so here’re some videos i would recommend:

One of the scenes from Empire Strikes Back that I do vividly remember is Han Solo being frozen in carbonite. I know this mainly because I used to re-enact the freezing in the bathtub as a tiny child, but now how you expect.

I discovered that if you turn a lego upside down (yes, my parents gave me Duplos as bath toys) and fill it with water, surface tension creates a slight arch above the lego’s rim. Not that I knew what surface tension was, but anyway. I would practice filling the lego as full as I could while yelling HAN SOLO, NO! and pretending he was in the lego. When the lego overflowed, Han was fully frozen and ready for shipping.
