Before the production of Princess Mononoke, a project titled Boro, the Caterpillar was considered for a feature release. The producer, Toshio Suzuki, noted that Miyazaki “is getting old” and a chance of doing an action film in the future would be none. So Suzuki pursued Miyazaki to initiate the Princess Mononoke project. A few years later, a story of a small creature living in a vast world still lingered in Miyazaki’s imagination. Thus, he written and directed a fifteen-minute short titled Mizugumo Monmon (Water Spider Monmon); a diving bell spider who fell in love with a water strider.

I STILL LOVE YOU ALL AND I ALWAYS WILL IM SORRY THAT IM SO BAD AT KEEPING TOUCH WITH YOU GUYS
is this supposed to change my mind because it didn’t
IT IS NOT FUCKING JIF IF YOU TELL ME YOU PRONOUNCE IT THAT WAY I WILL LAUGH IN YOUR GODDAMN FACE BECAUSE GIF STANDS FOR “GRAPHICS INTERCHANGE FORMAT” NOT FUCKING “JRAPHICS INTERCHANGE FORMAT”
why do you have to spell it “jif” to get the pronunciation across if that’s how gif is supposed to be pronounced
Also, programmers say “Choosy Developers Choose .gif” as in the Jif peanut butter, as in “jif”. Yeah.
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
Your face, this place
Look around, what do you see?
Your timing is off, there’s no future here.
The love you fight through the pain, never wrong
Your purpose is clear but your destiny ends here.
Your face, this place,
Turn around, walk away
This moment is mine and forever mine.
Your heart, my heart
Bleed as one for the love
In the end I know i’ll be mourning you.
Love to love or loving the kill
These moments we choose
Remember the thrill that drives you…

How long until the 15 year olds take over this post with their garbage
I’ve stopped being 15 years old long enough that I have the privilege of occasionally saying something that is not garbage so let’s try to pull it off.
What you are trying to express with this comic is problematic. The idea that tumblr or more specifically social justice activist don’t know that these people exist is not only false (they do), but feeds into a shallow narrative of what social justice is and how it should relate to the individual.
As the name implies, social justice is social, the opposite of individual. As an individual you are entitled to your opinion. You have no problem being called faggot? You’re right. Want to try your bindi on your white friend that looks supercute in it? There is no social justice police going to stop you from that. But the moment in which you don’t recognize that no matter what your opinion is, and no matter what your feelings on these issues are these actions harm your group at a societal level, then you are wrong. Not as a matter of opinions anymore, but as a matter of facts.
Cultural appropriation (bindi/dreads), microaggressions (faggot/racial prejudice), lack of representation (transexuality awareness) and claims of “reverse sexism” are hurting minorities, no matter what anyone’s opinion on these issues is. Research out there that shows that all the problems you are tackling here harm at a societal level the same people you have depicted here as not affected by them at an individual one.
As an example, I have OCD, and I really do not care about people who say things like “oh I’m so OCD”. I understand that they mean no harm to me, I understand that their ignorance is not their fault, and I understand that is just a word. I don’t care about all this. BUT when this illness keeps being trivialized as a character quirk a lot of bad shit happens at a societal level: people getting told they should just get over it, people who fit the diagnosis not recognizing that they have it because OCD is wrongly represented, people being denied accommodations for their disability because OCD is not so badand so on. Did this ever happen to me? No. It didn’t affect me as an individual (yet). But it does affect me society, and it is my duty as a member of a larger group to take a step back, to realize that not everyone is going to be as lucky as I am, and realize that my individual thoughts and experiences do not matter when other people out there are suffering from the results of that harmless ignorance I could easily ignore based on my individual experience. And after I’ve done that I need to call out that ignorance, because the moment in which I justify that ignorance on the base that as an individual, I am not affected by it is the moment in which I become the oppressor of the same minority I belong in.
Kudos to you for this excellent response. The distinction between individual issues and societal ones is really important.
i started crying by the time the chorus came around.
everybody, please watch this video. it’s not another cute romance or break-up song. the video very clearly shows that this is about Lee Michelle’s struggle to be accepted in very large part to her skin color. The child acting in this deserves every single award, as does Michelle. Both the song and the video hit really hard.
some important things to keep in mind:
- Michelle is half black and half Korean. Some people act like saying “African American” is better than black, but she’s never been to America. Afro-Hispanic people exist, African people exist — not everyone black is African American.
-for God’s sake, PLEASE don’t comment on how amazed you are by her Korean. She was born and raised in Korea. It’s her first language. Just because she doesn’t “look Korean” to you doesn’t mean she’s not.
- I skipped the first 1:30 of the video because watching a little girl run around in panic makes me anxious, personally. The song starts around 1:35, but parts of the beginning are really cool. I just couldn’t handle it.
- Michelle was also featured in the absolutely gorgeous Rewind by Double K. Please go support both songs!
I want this girl to get support and love from us. Please, check her out, reblog this video, support her with views, anything you can. It’s clear that she has a struggle before her in the k-pop world despite her incredible talent, charisma, and beauty. It’s really inspiring that she is making that the root of her work. As a person with brown skin, and also a person with a heart, this was really, really important to me.
