Over the Rainbow

We are gathered here together to join to this new marvellous Tumblr game which consists of  answering the questions you come up with and then tagging your fellow favourite tumblers so that they pass it on to their fellow favourite tumblers and so on…

I was summoned by the wonderful and intriguing collapsingparacosms whose url name reminds me of the Antenae Galaxies that look like two galactic fairies dancing in an endless waltz in the eternal compass of the universe in which we are standing (I really really tried to be poetic here, but I think in the attempt I  failed miserably). Here are the questions that my companion Frederick did:

1)      If money weren’t an issue, what would you be doing with your life right now?

Oh, I would be definitely travelling the globe, of course. And singing in every place I visit, in public, in private, in isolated deserts, in thick forests, singing in huge uninhabited caves to hear the sound of my own echo, and sing in exotic, unknown and battered bars, just for the fun of it. Additionally, I would love to write, all kinds of stories comes mind (there is one in particular that has been flourishing in my mind for several years now, that I think, with enough time and knowledge it could be a very good read for kids, I hope), also I’d be please if one day I could write my memoirs and all my unrequited love stories – there are a lot, and I mean, a L O T . In addition to all this, I would certainly love if I could read all the books on earth and translate them into my native language (Spanish, that is) as long as they are in English, since I am studying to be one day, maybe in two years’ time, a translator.

2)When you’re feeling down, what’s the thing (or things) that almost never fail to pick you back up again?

I talk to my friends, my family and if I am at home I play my favourite music and dance until I can move no longer. Also I pray, it really helps sometimes.

3)When you’re feeling anxious, what do you do to calm down?

When I am anxious I usually eat, not much, but I feel the urge to replenish my being with something sweet, especially chocolate. After that, I try to go out for a walk, and if I am feeling in a “Lara Croft” mood, I run.

But what I mostly do is sing and play, very poorly, the piano. 

4) Name something that’s changed the way you look at things in a fairly significant way.  It can be a book, art, song, lecture, movie, etc.

My mother’s death. Nothing is permanent, we have to appreciate everything we have, because one day we we’ll look and those who we love won’t be with us anymore.

5) Scaramouche, Scaramouche!  Will you do the fandango?

What is this?! It really made me laugh! It is a challenge? Does it imply a naked body? ‘Cause if it does count me in! Unless it is MY body, in which case I’ll ardently refuse! Do I have to look for the actual meaning of the word? Anyway, these are my two possible answers=  a) yes, I will do the  fandango? - whatever that is b) I love Queen!

6) Favourite comfort food - what’s it gonna be?

 CHOCOLATE PLEASE! AND Nutella, AND dulce de leche AND peppermint with chocolate chips ice cream, not all together obviously! Duh!

7) What are you currently reading/watching/listening to/etc? [another re-ask]

-Reading: the turn of the screw by Henry James

-Watching: an Argentinian series called “Blind Date” that I watched when I was a little -bit younger,

-Listening to: I am in love with the lasts albums of both Beyoncé and Coldplay

8) Wanderlust?  Where would you go? [3rd re-ask - laziness prevails]

Ohh, I would go to the entire world. But first, I would go to Europe; Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Portugal England, Ireland, Austria, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic and etcetera. And then,  I would got to Australia, and the French Polynesia.

9) What is your personal philosophy - on life or politics or socioeconomics, whatever - what do you believe or how do you look at the world?

 I believe in love, in kindness, compassion, humanity, friendship, joy, trust, hope. I believe in God, in a God that as a creator of everything, loves each and every one of his creations, each and every human being, no matter skin colour, sexual orientation, religion, politic thoughts. If you want to take God out of this context, I like to believe that the human nature is born with love above all things, but as we are born in a society that has been corrupted for so long, it has the power to corrupt us also. But I believe that only if we let them, it can corrupt our souls. I don’t believe in war or politics, there is NO GOD, NOR RELIGION, NOR PHILOSOPHY NOR VALUES OF ANY KIND THAT IS WORTH KILLING FOR. I also believe that we choose to have love or hate in our hearts, and that is the root for all the bad and the good things in the world. I believe in God and I believe in the Devil, but at the end of the day, we are the ones who choose to whom we will unite.

10) Think back to when you were ten or something.  What were you obsessed with?  What did you want to be as a grown-up?

 I was obsessed with a schoolmate named Fermín. He was soooooo gorgeous.

And of course, singing, I was obsessed with becoming a famous singer, haha.

11)   TEAM JACOOOOOOOB!

So, these were my wise answers (kind of), and I will post MY questions to the following members of the community of Tumblr:

1-      What’s your tumblr-name’s story?

2-      Last time you kissed someone? Did you like it?

3-      What band/ musician would you go back in time to prevent from ever having made music?

4-      Imagine you’d be given the chance to make a movie about your own life: Who would direct it? Which actor would play as you?

5-      Are we alone in the universe? Is there life on other planets?

6-      Believer or atheist? (not JUSTIN, I mean if you believe in something higher and supreme than human beings)

7-      What kind of apocalypse/disaster/dystopia would you like to happen/survive?

8-      Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings or A Song of Ice and Fire? YES YOU HAVE TO PICK ONE!

9-      If money weren’t an issue, what would you be doing with your life right now? [repost]

10-   Top 5 books, top 5 albums, top five movies (they cannot be the same as the books), top 5 countries, and top 5 famous persons.

 Aaaaaaan, the nominies aaaaaaaare:

“Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry.” — Lino Disalvo on animating Frozen, explaining (essentially) why they removed all the female supporting characters and replaced them with men. [[edited for accuracy]]

Yeah, I call bullshit.

don’t blame women because you’re a shitty animator

so basically what you’re saying is

"it was too harddddddd I didn’t wannaaaaaa."

"i dont care enough about women to animate them like reeeaaal peopleeee"

No. You don’t understand. You’re all ignorant fuckwads. Let me explain you a thing. Female faces? They’re softer. As in regardless of bone structure their faces are SOFT looking. Because of this, light bends differently and catches angles differently and the what not. Its harder to animate/draw/paint the female form, as any artist. It’s the same issue with babies- the SOFTNESS of the figure makes it harder to art them. And now I’m done with this tangent flies into the sun.

Excuse me?

image

Also untrue. 

image

As evidenced by all of these guys with soft faces

image

none of whom are impressed by your sexist bullshit

image

female skin is NOT different from male skin, biologically

image

female skin isn’t softer, you’re just trained to think of it that way by media and our societal expectation that women use make-up to MAKE their skin look softer, which has not been done all throughout history and thus doesn’t actually make any sense in a movie set in a historical time period when nobody expected anybody to have flawless skin

image

the problem isn’t animating women

image

the problem is animating women to look like an ideal while still keeping them diverse

image

image

If animators treated women like humans beings they wouldn’t have this problem

image

image

image

image

image

look at all of these soft faces

image

Don’t even fucking talk to me about Kadaj

image

image

image

This gifset is making you look as sexist as you are, say cheese!

image

image

image

Look at Shrek and Fiona next to each other

image

It doesn’t matter if they’re humans or ogres

image

their skin is animated exactly the same

image

Same for Lem and Neera

image

OH WOW HER SKIN IS SO MUCH SOFTER AND MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN HIS are you fucking kidding me with this

image

Basically fuck you
