HEY MINIONS so at the risk of you unfollowing/me sounding like a crazy person I’m going to ask you to do something very unusual today. I am going to ask you to watch a Barbie movie. (That’s it, up there. The whole thing. No really it’s like official no need to pirate it or anything how easy is that.)

WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THAT? Well okay so for one I am one of the two storyboard artists that worked on this (yes, two board artists, for a whole film, get that into your head I can hardly believe we managed it myself), but I am about to blow your mind with the more important detail that the other storyboarder was also the director and also the first female director that a Barbie film has had. Ever. Wow. I know. I knooooow.

So, tumblr, this is why Barbie and the Secret Door is important; this is the first Barbie film directed by a woman. Watch it. There is a super great villain, super cute giant purple furry minions with English accents and very bright super colourful colours all over the place just wait until you get to the magical place I stg you need sunglasses. There are also a lot of songs which will get stuck in your head and aggressive jive dancing.

I am not saying it is the best film, I am not saying that there aren’t other films that deserve your attention more, but there was a whole team of people behind this one gem of a lady trying our very best to make this film good, and you know what? I like it. There are many things that could be improved, yes, and there were decisions made by Mattel that we simply could not change whether we agreed with them or not, but that’s the case with every film, and this film saw a huge shift in the effort and direction of Barbie films. Tell Mattel what you want to see fixed, yes, but tell them that you want to see more of this; more women in control of pictures that are aimed towards young girls (because, let’s face it, these are). These films get translated into every language, they access a lot of people, these films can have influence. We need to be able to use this medium in a positive way, and we tried to, we really did try with this film. Barbie should be a positive icon for feminism; she has been before!

So, yes, please check this out if you have the time, and give Mattel and Rainmaker the feedback that they need!

I have to say I’m surprised it was the first to be directed by a woman, I thought they had done that already. I know lots of the films were written by a woman. I have to say I love that these movies are still going strong, because they are some great material for little girls.
I watched this yesterday and it is super cute, the songs are catchy.

Please. Please please please.

Stop linking to illegal downloads of episodes.

The survival of Sailor Moon Crystal depends on people legally viewing the show on provided portals.

And — for once — there is no shortage of these. More or less globally.

So come on, guys.

Piracy is bad. Non-piracy is good!

Stop acting like piracy is a totally okay thing to engage in and hurts no one, because it’s actually not.

SMC on:

Hulu

Crunchyroll

Niconico

I’m super sorry that some of these services mean having to deal with (*groan*) commercials, but guess what — sitting through those ads, or signing up for a subscription, means that this show starts seeing some profits.

So stop being a bunch of babies. Suck it up. And support the show.

Thank you, that is all.

It’s just a shame those websites either aren’t available in the UK, aren’t showing Sailor Moon crystal in the UK or have comments going across the screen making the episodes unwatchable and don’t tell you how much the subscription costs so you can’t make an informed choice about singing up. I’ll have to wait until the series is over, sign up for the two week trail in the hope that will stop the comments going across the screen and make the episodes watchable and then spend two weeks watching as much as I can before cancelling and hoping I can sign up for another two week trial.   

I live in the UK, and Niconico is a perfectly serviceable site. You can turn off the comments popping up all across the screen using the button at the bottom that looks like a dialogue balloon.

Also, I signed up for the paid service, and it immediately gives you the option to pay with PayPal, which shows the exchange rate, if I’m not mistaken.

Or if it didn’t, it’s super easy to google yen to pounds.

For the record, it’s about £3.50 a month. But you can have a free account, you just can’t watch it full screen at the very highest resolution.

But you can watch it.

If you go to the subscription pages it tells you exactly how much the service costs. It’s also on the FAQ pages. [link] You asshats aren’t even trying to watch it legally. CrunchyRoll is about £4.13 a month for an anime membership.

They’ve gotta pay for the show somehow, so either subscribe or watch some commercials. Stop being entitled brats.

Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE

Wow he’s so intelligent and eloquent, I’m 22 and I can’t even phrase my speech that articulately. Good on him for confronting white society with this.

Not a requested palette/character, but basically what I wanted to do was to pick the palette that intimidated me the most with its color choices and buckle down to see what I could do with it.

This is really awesome
