you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games
A live Artichoke drinking at a river
Because Artichokes are classified as vegetables for import into the U.S. due to an 18th century zoning loophole, few in the country are even aware that they’re the thorax and abdomen of an animal.
The Artichoke lives mostly in tropical regions and lives on a diet of ants and small insects which it siphons up with its long, hollow tongue. Artichokes are seldom raised on farms owing to their small size and the ease of their escape, instead they’re trapped for food and exported, often constituting as much as 80% of a nation’s economy.
Only the meat connecting the scales of the Artichoke is edible, most of its body being condensed squamous cells. It’s heart is edible however, and is considered a delicacy by some gustibators.
Sinistra loved the stars. Loved how they whirled slowly but certainly above her head, loved how with the moons waning and waxing they waxed and waned in apparent brightness, loved to see how each constellation passed overhead, loved the myths every place had about the celestial bodies in the upturned bowl they knew as sky.
Man in the moon, one nation claims, no rabbit, says another, or hare at least, but not ever a man.
Deities changed too, where muggles had them, the moon was Artemis, Selene, Diana, Coyolxauhqui, or yet male, Tecciztecatl, Máni, Fati.
Bellissime stelle, Nicolaus had said, when she had gone to study under him in Pisa. Beautiful stars.
They were, she thought every evening, they were beautiful, strange distant points of light which somehow could affect the world, despite so great a distance.
Starry-eyed Sinistra her schoolmates had called her. It was true, in the end.
"I hate if when people say Frozen is good because it won an Oscar. You guys do know that the judges didn’t even watch the other movies? And only two of them watched Frozen. It won because none of them care about animation."
WHAT IS THIS CRAP??? IT WON BECAUSE ITS INCREDIBLE!!!
No, it did not.
It only won because it’s Disney. If you look here, you’ll see that only two judges out of 7 saw Frozen and also admitted to not seeing the other nominees. So not only is this not fair to the other movies, it’s certainly not fair to Disney. Winning just because of their name instead of working hard and making the best of art there is not fair.
So Frozen winning two Oscars really means nothing in the long end knowing that the judges were lazy and don’t care about animation.
mockeryd slamming down the truth for all the Frozen fans who are living under rocks
mockeryd didn’t say the truth, because mockeryd thinks that there are only 7 Oscars judges, while there are around 5,800 of them and I highly doubt that only 2 of them saw Frozen, while the others didn’t watch any of nominated animations. The article cited by mockeryd quotes 7 judges, because only such amount of them was interviewied by the journalist, who wrote article about Oscars.
Regardless, it is researched that most of the judges either picked Frozen because:
- It was the only animated film that they bothered to watch
- It had the Disney name attached to it
- They had not watched any of the animated films and just didn’t vote
Even if you think that Frozen won by its own merits, the article brought up still shows a bias and uncaring attitude towards animation by the academy. Pretty much all the nominees for Best Animated Feature last year were great films; it’s a disappointment that the judges would just pick the most acclaimed company/popular film rather than watch all the films and gauge them by quality. Even though it won, Frozen’s victory is hollow: it’s forever tainted by the fact that the academy apparently cares nothing for this art form.
