Being an asian fetishizer does not make you a nerd, it makes you racist.
a lot of fedora-type dudes don’t actually wear fedoras, you just know them from the way they are. it’s like a personality fedora. an internal fedora
It’s their fedaura.
EUROPEANS TAUGHT FOR CENTURIES that Africa had no written history, literature or philosophy (claiming Egypt was other than African). When roughly 1 MILLION manuscripts were found in Timbuktu/Mali covering , according to Reuters “all the fields of human knowledge: law, the sciences, medicine,” IT DID NOT MAKE MAINSTREAM NEWS as did the lies taught by Europeans concerning Africa
Someone asked me to somehow “verify” that this story is real.
Of course it’s real! The PROBLEM with the coverage regarding these manuscripts is that they’re constantly portrayed as being in “danger” because many of them are still in the possession of Malian descendants. About 700,000 have been cataloged so far, and they have had to be moved in part because apparently extremist groups have tried to firebomb them. Many others are still in the possession of the families they have been passed down in.
Many of these collected manuscripts are being housed in exile, but mold and humidity have been a constant threat. They have been raising funds to try and preserve these manuscripts-you can read more about the project to house and protect them here.
A bit of the history of these manuscripts from National Geographic:
These sacred manuscripts covered an array of subjects: astronomy, medicine, mathematics, chemistry, judicial law, government, and Islamic conflict resolution. Islamic study during this period of human history, when the intellectual evolution had stalled in the rest of Europe was growing, evolving, and breaking new ground in the fields of science, mathematics, astronomy, law, and philosophy within the Muslim world.
By the 1300s the “Ambassadors of Peace” centered around the University of Timbuktu created roving scholastic campuses and religious schools of learning that traveled between the cities of Timbuktu, Gao, and Djénné, helping to serve as a model of peaceful governance throughout an often conflict-riddled tribal region.
At its peak, over 25,000 students attended the University of Timbuktu.
By the beginning of the 1600s with the Moroccan invasions from the north, however, the scholars of Timbuktu began to slowly drift away and study elsewhere. As a result, the city’s sacred manuscripts began to fall into disrepair. While Islamic teachings there continued for another 300 years, the biggest decline in scholastic study occurred with the French colonization of present-day Mali in the late 1890s.
So yeah, basically the story of this collection’s source more or less ends with “…but unfortunately, colonialism”, as do most of the great cities of Africa, the Americas, and some parts of Asia.
Also, as an additional consideration:
With the pressures of poverty, a series of droughts, and a tribal Tureg rebellion in Mali that lasted over ten years, the manuscripts continue to disappear into the black market, where they are illegally sold to private and university collections in Europe and the United States.
Notice where the blame is placed here via language use: on the people in poverty forced to sell their treasures, as opposed to the Universities in Europe and the U.S. buying them.
It’s really just another face of Neocolonialism.
I see the clipping in the first one but what’s the second one
i actually dont see the clipping in the first one?? but the second one elsa’s braid phases right through her arm when she brings it forward. not over her shoulder. literally through her arm
the thumb clips through the shirt in the first one
budget for Tangled: $260 million
budget for Brave: $185 million
budget for Wreck it Ralph: $165 million
budget for Monster’s University: $200 million
so a) that is actually pretty low budget and b) you don’t like a couple errors in a brilliant movie that took a lot of work then make the goddamn movie yourself
wait no I thought I was done but I wasn’t
how would you like it if you spent hours a day working on a movie where you had to draw thousands of frames then try to put it together perfectly so it flowed and was visually pleasing just to get on a stupid fucking website and see people making fun of it and pointing it out? what if I showed up at your door and found everything you have ever written or drawn and pointed out every little error? you fucking idiots sitting there at home pointing out errors. you know in the second gif it wouldn’t have flowed as well had it not clipped through her her shoulder and you all would have complained about that so shut the fuck up wow
^ THANK YOU. I’ve been waiting for so long for this movie and now everyone is complaining about 2 simple things that don’t even matter. Just stop trying to ruin things for other people.
These scenes are an example of a large problem with Disney being extremely sloppy with their animation and designing the characters as a whole. Brave had a budget of $185 million and Wreck-It Ralph had one of 165 million; you can see the WORLDS of difference in animation for not a huge difference in budget. This movie had some awful and recycled character designs/voice and some voice acting that was much superior to the animation. The bottom line with this movie is many of the animators didn’t even want to work on it, and it shows.
