Comments on the trailer of the new Annie movie staring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx.
Would you just look at how racism isn’t a thing anymore in today’s society.
weakness is spreading
Playing around with ink washes and my new pen nibs. It’s hard not to get distracted by how pretty it makes my handwriting!
I hope they become good friends.
M.O.D. and Momma agree wholeheartedly.
This blog takes a lot of energy and time to run. It’s very emotionally draining!
Momma cannot deal with everything on her own. She will be reblogging a post she made all about this.
M.O.D. is very frustrated since he ran out of medicine today and feels very, very lightheaded and nasty. He is only human, and he needs to take the mental health of himself and all of the other underwater helpers into consideration first.
He has stresses of his own- we all do. He’s out of money and out of medicine. His jobs aren’t coming through and he has no source of income right now. Everyone on the Momma blog has school and family, just like everyone else does.
Momma is very worried since Momma doesn’t know if Sea Bear will come back.
I hate seeing shit like this.
There was an article in The New Yorker this summer about a Japanese Buddhist monk who counsels people who want to kill themselves, and it talks about how at one point he was nearly overwhelmed by the demands on him. He had to take a step back and refuse to help anyone who could not come to meet him, at least once, in person. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to help anyone at all. He was surprised when many of the people he’d been talking to became angry with him — his welfare wasn’t as important to them as him continuing to talk to them, sometimes for years.
One of the problems with wanting to help people is that people who are hurting can sometimes be very hurtful themselves. This is often how mental illness winds up running in families; in addition to the genetic predisposition for an emotional problem, relatives usually share an environment that leads to developing that emotional problem. The things my dad said and did because of his depression were a major reason I have it myself.
But just because we can understand why someone might, say, harass an advice columnist, that doesn’t make it right. Even if Sea Bear made mistakes, it was very wrong of those anons to attack like that.
On a scale of Katniss Everdeen to Ned Stark, how much would you say you trust the government?
I demand they make an anime and base a character off of me right now
WHATS THAT I HEAR? ANNOYING FEMALE SIDEKICK? REPORTING FOR DUTY SIR, AND READY TO DO…

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.
I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!
this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.
I CAN’T WAIT
So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway. Ask box is open, slam away.
When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people. By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.
Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it. A BLACK orphan?! Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
In school I studied electronics and I learned all about AND gates and bistables, and the other various pieces from which modern computers are made. I also learned all about subatomic particles including the mass of the electron, particle spin, and how electricity and magnetism are in fact two sides of the same coin.
