Little sphere of soapsuds

A tangible expression of the mess that is my mind.

Best lesson from a Disney movie

This is an underrated movie

This is a grossly underrated movie.

Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.

I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”

You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women. 

And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog. 

So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes. 

the end.

I have had so many consecutively warm fuzzy fun conversations this week. From O, to B, to work, to C and G (who knew I would ever crave Australian accents?? bizarro). So ergo I just feel like eeeing over them for a sec. 

O: it’s so refreshing to spend time with a guy with so much depth and reflectiveness. It sounds superficial but in some ways I am also so glad to have him around because he has seen me change and grow over the last 8 or so years, and I him, and it’s awesome having someone endorse the person I have become. Who knew that the slightly dorky guy I had a mega crush on at 13 would become such a strong and steady friend (after 3 years of avoidance) . 

B: I just love that we do like 3 mins of small talk and then it’s right into “so, I watched this documentary/did you read that article/massssive DMCS”. I feel like I haven’t really found that balance before with someone (except maybe M), of intellectual discussion, complete silliness and reflection. I am so happy to have found someone with the same passions and drive as me. 

Work: When is the ball going to drop regarding this one? I feel far too happy and satisfied for my own good. My boss is AMAZING, young, completely mad but in the best possible way, and so passionate. And J is the perfect mix of sarcastic (but not in that pretentious way) and sweet, makes for a great coworker. Proves to me I shouldn’t judge a book, because I totally thought he was gonna be ultra tc. It seems bizarre to me that I’ve only been in for 4 days (if you add my parttime hours up) and I already feel completely at home with them. When has that happened before?? I love my work, but also love the fact that we spend the breaks reenacting youtube videos and giggling about tpain. 

C and G: God, I miss these girls. I miss being overseas with them, and I miss that we balance eachother so completely. Two without the third would not work, we’re all so different but fit so well. They have this snapshot of who I am from Contiki, and then the weekend in Sydney, and yet I feel like they know me better than a lot of people here. There is something very empowering about getting new perspectives about yourself, and they always provide. I can’t wait to skype them next week. 

I know that relationships are transient, but I am glad that I have such good ones in this part of my life.

I’m with you Piper.

I’ve never watched this show before but I’m so with her.

“As each of our clones were carried by different surrogates, that could explain differences in sexuality. But who wants to run around blaming mothers and their hormone levels for the sexuality of their children? Haven’t we had enough of that, since, like, forever? Maybe it was the lipstick in Daddy’s glove box? Or Great Uncle Arthur’s? Okay, then how about the nurture side of things? Cosima grew up in the Bay Area, in a permissive community and a progressive home fostering intellectual and social tolerance. She learned to approach sexuality without shame, with curiosity. I think Cosima’s been “bisexual” (if you had to codify it), but maybe she’s ready to self-identify as gay. She would defend her freedom to choose, no matter where nature placed her in the spectrum.” Graeme Manson on Cosima’s sexuality. (x)

A reminder to all who haven’t heard: THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS WILL RIDE AGAIN…FUELED BY NETFLIX…IN 2016.
You read that right. Through Netflix’s acquisition of Scholastic, a 26-episode series will kick off in 2016, called The Magic School Bus 360°.
From the announcement via Mashable:

Netflix and Scholastic Media announced in a press statement that the new series will use CGI animation to feature a “modernized Ms. Frizzle" and an "inventive high-tech bus” — so it looks like the companies are not afraid to take chances and make mistakes (and probably get messy in the process). The very 21st-century show will also focus on modern tech innovations, including robotics and wearables.
“The all-new episodes also leverage advancements in animation, science and technology in a way that will delight a new generation of young viewers, and like its predecessor, will help kids around the world discover the magic and value of exploration and innovation,” a press statement reads.

Listen to the original Magic School Bus theme music
The Magic School Bus is the longest-running kids’ science series in history, first airing on PBS in 1994 and continuing in syndication for 18 consecutive years. It has even earned an Emmy Award. (Undoubtedly for Liz the Lizard’s acting.)
“Magic School Bus, the old version, is remarkably popular on Netflix,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer told The New York Times. “It teaches science in a way that transcends generations.”
Scholastic Media has not yet announced if the original Ms. Frizzle, Lily Tomlin, will return to voice the character.


And from a similar announcement via CNN:

“To do an animated show that has actually encouraged young people to pursue careers in the sciences or teaching makes us very, very happy.”
— Forte, President, Scholastic Media


2016. The Magic School Bus. The original ship of the imagination.

Why Tumblr should Fall In Love with Frida Kahlo. 

YES OMFG
YES

i love everything about this because i love frida kahlo, but how are you going to not list the fact she was in a horrible bus accident that basically crippled her for most of her life and while lying bedridden she began to paint. frida kahlo didn’t give up and that makes her truly amazing.

Also her bus accident made her unable to have children (she became pregnant three times and had to terminate them due to her condition) which was a huge source of pain for her and many of her paintings depict the enormous physical, emotional and mental suffering she was in (see: columna rota). She was badass but also had a lot of struggle in her life, which was a huge part of who she was and how she viewed the world.
