the music in this film though

I finally went back and listened to the Gravity Falls soundtrack. I adore cartoon background music - it’s so much livelier than film scores, almost without exception. Brad Breek is a hell of a composer. I think my favorite is actually the ‘Tourist Trapped’ theme… it’s kind of dorky-cool and I’m not sure why.

Y’all seriously need to learn to fact check things you see on here.

1.) it wasn’t Disney who turned down Coco but DREAMWORKS. 
and to those who STILL erroneously insist that Disney/Pixar turned down The Book of Life

2.) People getting mad at this:

Marigolds are traditional to our culture as well as to the holiday, ESPECIALLY in petal form. Not the best example but that’s like getting mad at different Christmas movies for using mistletoe.

3.) “Oh it’s the same plot.” Has anyone looked up the plot for this movie other than outright bashing it from the trailer? 
“The footage, raw though it may be, spun a compelling story about Miguel, a sweet kid who loves music despite the fact that his abuelita banned music long ago, thanks to an ancient drama involving Miguel’s great-great-grandfather—a dashing musician—who walked out on the family. That musician, Miguel discovers at the start of the film, is his town’s most famous son: deceased film star and music supernova Ernesto de la Cruz. On the eve of Día de Muertos, Miguel breaks into de la Cruz’s mausoleum in order to borrow the famous skull guitar that hangs there so that he can enter a talent competition and convince his family to embrace music again. Once Miguel touches the guitar, he becomes something of a living ghost. His family can no longer see him, but Miguel can now see all of his dead ancestors—who look like fantastically decorative skeletons—crossing over a bright bridge made of marigold flower petals from the Land of the Dead. Looking for help and answers, Miguel travels to the Land of the Dead—a dazzlingly vibrant, stacked metropolis inspired by the Mexican city of Guanajuato—himself and sets off an adventure with trickster skeletal companion Hector to find the rest of his family, de la Cruz, and the answer to how he can fix this curse.”  
You know how insistent Pixar is on always making original films. So don’t you think that they would continue that?

4.) “But the white director who thinks he knows everything because he’s been to Mexico.” That’s right, a white person who is not of Mexican/Latinx culture can not truly KNOW our culture simply by visiting it. And Lee Unkrich knows this fact. Which why he assembled a group for the sake of making sure the movie is culturally accurate, rather than him taking on that role

you know, a team of actual latinx. Including someone who was a huge critic of Coco, and is a critic of Disney, Lalo Alcaraz. He is most famously known for his response to the action of Disney attempting to trademark Dia de los Meurtos (which will be our next point). It’s not Alcaraz selling out. It’s him working together with the movie so it’s not just Disney trying to bring in more Latinx fans but rather creating what Unkrich’s true mission: “a love letter to Mexico.” This team along with many other Latinx creatives (like Adrian Molina who was originally just a writer and then promoted to co-director) and a fully latinx cast (again, as insisted by Unkrich), are working together to make it a Latinx piece of media. ( http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2016/12/pixar-coco-gael-garcia-bernal-dia-de-los-muertos-miguel )

5.) We all know and got rightfully angry at Disney for attempting to trademark Dia de los Muertos. This was due to the similar original name the movie had. As expected, it received intense backlash to which Disney quickly revoked the request to trademark. Unkrich was the first to vocalize that this was a mistake. This even leading to that point most likely has to do with him being a white man not of our culture, but this humbling experience is what really knocked that message into him and he began recruiting people like the ones in the above point to make sure that the movie itself is true to the people, culture, and holiday, in ways he himself could never fully grasp.

6.) It’s about the Day of the Dead like The Book of Life. My response to this is easy: look at how many movies are there about Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentine’s day, Saint Patrick’s day, etc.

7.) Gutierrez himself doesn’t want it to be a competition but as two wonderful films about one aspect of Latinx that will hopefully lead to more in the future.

I love The Book of Life, and is one of my favorite movies if I’m being honest. When it first came out I was filled with such pride and joy for many reasons. One of course for it being a gorgeously rendered film, but for it being such a positive and beautiful representation and celebration of Mexico. As someone who grew up only seeing white main characters, with people like my family and I as only side characters, it brings me such joy to see more media being produced in which Mexicans are the focus along with our culture (which is agreeably much more diverse than what is being tapped into). We still got a long way to go as Mexico is still only one group of Latinx culture, but we are witnessing the stepping stones of Hollywood beginning to reach out and representing this community by working with people of those cultures. The Book of Life will always have a special place in my heart, but I’m not letting my love of that movie keep me from supporting Latinx creators that are putting out Coco. I’m finally getting the representation that I craved as a kid and loving it.

Make me choose - Anonymous asked: “Nori or Bofur?”

“Endearing and likable, Bofur has a disastrous tendency to state the obvious and blurt out things without thinking. With a love of music and a fine singing voice, Bofur delights in good food and good company and is unfailingly optimistic. Though not especially brave, he will do his best to help those in need, especially those he counts as friends. Along with his brother Bombur and his cousin Bifur, Bofur joined the Quest for the Lonely Mountain partly to seek his fortune – and partly because he was told the beer was free.”

Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove was first released on December 15, 2000.

This film was originally planned to have been a dramatic, sweeping Disney musical named “Kingdom of the Sun”, to be directed by The Lion King (1994) director Roger Allers and Mark Dindal, director of Turner’s Cats Don’t Dance (1997), with six original songs written by Sting, that was essentially an Incan re-telling of Mark Twain’s The Prince and the Pauper.

The resulting film tested very poorly, and the production was suspended, even though the film was 50% complete. During the production hiatus, Dindal, producer Randy Fullmer, story man Chris Williams, and screenwriter David Reynolds completely overhauled the film, eventually throwing out Wilson, the Prince and the Pauper angle, the completed footage, and all but one of Sting’s songs.

Daft Punk’s Electroma | Lyrics

(While making this, I noticed that once Thomas-bot dies, there are no more songs with vocals until after the immolation sequence. As if being together was what merited words and song, not any other aspect of their ill-fated journey, though those words might not have been original to themselves.
As if that meaning could be regained only when they were united in death.

That might be why Daft Punk didn’t score Electroma with their own music.)

Say You Love Me.Pt1.joe sugg.

The sound of laughter echoed throughout the flat as I witnessed my grown friends film a YouTube video. My iPhone became more interesting by the minute though. My manager , Stacy, texting me all the tour dates I would attend with my friend Conor Maynard. He and I sing, we’re kinda good. We would be opening for the vamps tour 2017. To say I’m excited is an understatement.

It was late when I decided to leave, my apartment being in the same complex. I had my own filming to do plus I didn’t want to be sat around joe anymore. Everything was set up by 9, quickly I fixed my makeup and hair before starting the music. The keys to drive by Miley Cyrus began.

Feeling very passionate about the song and as it explained how I felt it wasn’t hard to pick. I posted the video straight away although it would take half hour to post. I added a sassy comment in the description before linking my socials before I checked my phone.

‘New cover in 30. I love the song hope you guys do too’.

I received a bunch of retweets and replies back. Some standing out more than others. Not in the mood to reply I ignored them and began playing music off my tv.

'So you can keep me inside the pocket of your ripped jeans’ I sang along with ed, spinning and dancing around my flat.

'Oh you can fit me inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen’ a voice shouted/sang loudly behind me causing me to jump. I span around to stare at my best friend of 12 years Emily. She stood almost crying of laughter at my reaction.

“EMMMM LEE” I shouted rather loudly, I’m sure the boys would’ve heard it from their flat. Jumping onto my great friend both of us laughing as she fell to the floor. We haven’t seen each other as she’s been in our hometown visiting her parents for the past 2 months.

'Em’ this time I spoke quietly before the tears began.

'Oh no baby what’s up’ she quelled, hugging me as we sat on the couch.

My head moved towards my ceiling, hoping the tears would go away. But they stayed consistent. She used her fingers to wipe a few away before just hugging me until I finished crying.

'Umm’ my voice shook. I didn’t want to explain. 'I umm slept with joe’.

Her expressions were confused and I understood why.

'That’s good though right? I thought you liked him’ her head slated as she asked.

'We were drunk’ I scoff after the shirt sentence.'I listened as he walked out at 5 in the morning. He thought I was asleep’.

'Oh no baby’ she hugged me.

'It gets worse’ she looked confused again. 'He had um left his bank card’ she nodded ’ I woke up again at 9 to Caspar knocking my door asking for it back. He claimed I had taken joes by accident’.

'Wow. How stupid do they think you are’ she stated obviously pissed off at the situation.

'Obviously very stupid’ I spoke softly my head held low.

'You should’ve called me (y/n/n), I would’ve some home early’ I shrugged.

'Anyway’ I wiped my wet cheeks ’ how was home?’.

'I’m so damn excited for this party’ em squealed as she checked her outfit in the mirror.

'Yeah me too’ I lied. I was definitely not excited.

It was December 1st. Meaning Zoe’s and Alfie’s annual early Christmas party, more like gathering really. She had done a secret santa this year for everyone, I ended up getting josh. My ginger haired friend was brought a new hair comb, new microphone for filming as he broke his two weeks ago and didn’t have enough money to replace it and some perfume.

Emily had gotten joe, so she had simply brought him a new ‭phone‬ case which contained holders for bank cards. Sarcastic as fuck.

We had left our hotel room around six thirty pm, the zalfie house only down the road. Jack and Mikey waited patiently for half hour for us to get ready in the lobby. Hey we’re also sharing a room but a few floors below us.

'Hello babe’ jack hugged me as Emily greeted mike.

'Hey jacky’ I kissed his cheek before pulling away, I was possibly closest to him now me and joe are no longer friends.

'Coy, (y/n/n) you look amazing’ Mikey spoke loudly, like usual before hugging me tightly.

'So do you lp’.

It really did take two minutes to get to zalfies. Everyone else already there and waiting for us.

'Alright then guys. Now everyone is here’ Zoe jokingly gave me,em,jack and Mikey a glare before continuing ’ were gonna begin with secret santa’ she squealed 'everyone circle’ she shouted this time.

Everyone followed her commands after we recovered from laughing. I sat crisscrossed between jack and Emily, directly across from joe, Casper and josh. Our presents rested in the middle of the circle. Each of us would get our bags, one at a time, and guess who they were from.

Tanya had started first, she giggled at most of her presents, I recognised most as I helped jack buy them. We had brought her a few of lipsticks and eye shadow palette from her own make up range and a pair of beautiful burgundy high heels in her size as I had remembered her complaining she had none. She had guessed Zoe or Emily had brought them before asking me before realising it was Jack.

Jim was next and Casper was his secret santa, getting him those mouth things.
Conor was jacks, he had brought jack a bunch of fake piercings.
Josh was caspers and brought him a pair of primark daps in a horrid colour.


~

A hour, it took us a hour to simply open some presents. I had received a beautiful blue necklace from Mikey and some makeup items that Zoe and Tanya helped him buy. We were now playing a game of truth or dare, I know. It was Alfie’s idea so please don’t judge.

Zoe had to do jims makeup. Conor and josh had to kiss, wasn’t done though, they complained like baby’s. Mikey and Emily kissed. Caspar had to go next door naked. Joe had to allow Jack to tweet off his ‭phone. Now Alfie was asking me.

’(Y/n/n) truth or dare?’ He asked with a smirk, I already knew I was done for.

'Truth’ he moaned at me before continuing.

'Lame. Whatever fine. Uhh have you ever had a one night stand with anyone here’ my eyes quickly shot to EM before looking towards joe who was staring at me.

'Yeah’ I simply shrugged. Everyone began going insane, asking me who, when and how.

'Oh my fucking god spill the tea’ Zoe spoke quickly, wanting to know all.

'It doesn’t really matter, we were both drunk and he left before I even woke up, so it meant nothing. Really’ everyone kinda looked sympathetic towards me. Joe and Casper sat awkwardly.

'Was it my brother? Cause I know how close you two are’ Conor stated, moving his finger back and fore me and jack.

We chuckled before Jack stated 'nah, even though he’s here the guy is a piece of shit’. I looked towards him with confusion, he didn’t even know who it was.

So I’m back. And I know this is kinda crappy but it’ll get better. Request part 2. NOT PROOF READ.

Deborah Hogg is Perrie’s mother, and Kelsey Hemmings is her aunt. 

Zayn was not allowed to have a beard because one direction management would not allow it, his father was not shown in the 1d movie making it look like Trisha had divorced Yassir, when Yassir and Trisha lived in the same house and were happily married only because Yassir was a Pakistani man. They did not show the islamic decorations in his family’s house in the movie, even when they had filmed it. Zayn was branded racistly compared to his other four white counterparts. They rejected Zayn’s music, and Perrie never once stood up for him, even when she was engaged to him. 

Perrie, his fiancee, did not know his ethnicity (being he was Pakistani, she called him Indian even though the British were the ones who had split India into two, and they learn about it in history class), she never supported him with one direction management was openly racist to him, Perrie’s own family was racist to Zayn. Even when Zayn brought Deborah a house to live in. 

You do not have to like Zayn, but for the sake of humanity people should realize how wrong it is. A half brown boy did not deserve to have a boss and fiancee who were racist, he deserved a partner who was not racist to him. Every human being deserves to come home to someone who cares about them, who cares about their dreams, not to have to live with a racist boss and come home to a racist fiancee who did not care for his ethnicity or cared to correct her Islamophobic relatives. 

Please reblog this. Let’s trend positivity on twitter towards Zayn tomorrow, lets fix this mess. 

I do not know about the rest of you, but to see another desi person be ridiculed for breaking up with a toxic racist person, it just makes me cry. I do not know, maybe I’m overly sensitive, but when I see other people get abused by their racist partners who were supposed to be their friends/family/fiancee it’s just sad. I am crying this should not even have to be said. 

I often think about how even though Scott and Mitch are quite different personality wise from Dan and Phil they both have a lot of similarities… 

Scomiche and Phan have both said they want dogs some day (personally I feel like Scomiche will adopt a dog before Phan does… and Scott and Mitch tour all the time… so like… being busy shouldn’t be an excuse *hinting at Phan here*)

They all like anime 

They all have a “nerd” side 

I feel like Mitch and Dan have very similar music tastes??? just me?? 

They both can barely function without each other (k but like… Dan filming himself skyping Phil on his instagram story that one time and then Mitch filming himself face timing Scott on his live stream today… kill me???? like… now???)

I love how different yet so similar the two sets of friends are… It’s a beautiful thing really.

It seems Shawn is filming a new music video (SCREAMS WITH EXCITEMENT)!

I am disturbed by a few things concerning the model he’s using, though.

First off, she is BEAUTIFUL. Like BEYOND. I don’t know anything about her and I’m sure she is a lovely person.

To those sending her hate, you’re sick. She has done NOTHING to you at all and just because she’s in his music video gives you no reason at all to say mean and hurtful things to her. She is a human being just doing her damn job.

HOWEVER.

From a professional stand point, if I did what she is doing at my job, I would be fired.

Why?

She notes in her tweet that what she is doing is top secret. If it’s top secret, then why are you posting about it? Isn’t that doing the EXACT opposite of being secret?

Second, responding the way she is to the hurtful comments. Instead of either ignoring it or responding in a professional way, she is oozing immaturity with her “looooool Shawn Mendes fans going in on me.”

It’s just really rubbing me the wrong way. You’re saying you can’t discuss what you’re doing yet there you are, posting about it. If you signed a non-disclosure, you’re screwed.

Like, it’s just in bad taste to post about HIS music video before he does. It’s not her music video, it’s HIS and she’s just lucky to be in it. Rude, really.

Anyway, I am really excited to see what song it will be! No matter what, it’s Shawn and he’s artsy and I have a feeling that it will be incredible <3

B.A.P Himchan - Debut Story

In his first year in college, Himchan ended up being casted by an entertainment company that specialized for actors and started playing a series of minor roles.

“I think I spent my time actively while I was a minor actor partaking in ads and even appeared in a cell phone CF featuring celebrities like seniors T-Ara and Yoon Siyoon. Of course, you can’t see my face though (laughs).
Also in 2011, I appeared in the music video for senior Jung Seulgi. I was even a protagonist for an independent film.”

“In 2011, with the recommendation of TS Entertainment’s current recruiter for actors and in seeing the family-like atmosphere alongside meeting the CEO, I decided to sign with them right away and became thus a trainee . I don’t think I’ll come to regret this decision and I find it fate (laughs).”

However, Himchan wasn’t skilled in dancing or singing from the start. Himchan having only played gukak [T/N: Traditional Korean drum with two sides], dancing or singing was very new to him.

“All I remember is that I would get in trouble because I couldn’t sing or dance. Because I only played instruments, it was hard to maneuver my body.
I knew that practice was the only road to save myself so I practiced endlessly and there were about 30 peers who were practicing to become a member of B.A.P. It was indeed an intense survival game in which I survived.”

Despite the rigorous competition, what was a big strength to him was same-aged leader Bang Yongguk who as an underground rapper was also experiencing at that time a lot of hardships in dancing.

“At first, Yongguk and I lived in a dorm together and I thought that was the most fun. I was able to tell Yongguk openly about all my troubles (laughs).
Yongguk? He’s a friend who has upright values and in meeting Yongguk, I think I changed a lot too.”

Bang Yongguk and Himchan, the two depended on one another and began overcoming the obstacle of their trainee years.

Of course, there were many times when they wanted to give up but all of a sudden, the two same-aged friends became the two dependable eldest members of B.A.P.

“My dream? Invading the universe haha. Also, I want to be able to be with the members of B.A.P for a long time.
Of course, with our fans too (laughs). With how much obstacles I’ve faced to make a debut, I want to promote just as hard and I’ll continue to become a Himchan who never loses his roots.”

SNL FACTS (Kristen Stewart edition)

  • This is the 821st overall episode.
  • This will be Kristen’s first time as host.
  • Though not well-known for doing comedy, Kristen has worked in films with former SNL cast members Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader (Adventureland), and was recently in a film with long time SNL host Steve Martin.
  • Former SNL cast members Noel Wells and Jenny Slate have done impressions of her.
  • Alessia Cara will be the musical guest.  It will be her first time performing on the show.

I’ve gone to see La La Land twice now in the theater and it’s easily one of my favorite movies in a long time. It was so beautifully directed showing how a musical should be done and had me in a sea of emotions by the end. Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling were really adorable/charming plus I cannot stop listening to the soundtrack it’s just so good <3 Totally Oscar worthy.

Me at that ending though:

Disney Discography 54

Recess: School’s Out

The Original Film

The only One Saturday Morning movie I’ve seen. Though I’m not sure, why since I was never a fan of the original show. 

Anyways the soundtrack of the film consists of 60s/70s rock.
