Baking Adventures

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

So, today I tried my hand at something new. I tried baking. I also sucked horribly at it.  I was worried I didn’t have the right ingredients for a proper batch of brownies, so I looked up some simpler recipes online. Specifically microwave recipes.   The first one I tried was a recipe that would […]

My Little Baby Off to Destroy People

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

We’re getting to the best part. The “I’ll Make a Man Out of You”. Silence in the theater please. Silence. This is literally the best song in the whole movie!

The Ancestors

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Have you ever actually listened when the ancestors are arguing? I love that part of Mulan. My favorite line is: “No, your great-granddaughter had to be a CROSSDRESSER!” I just don’t even know why, but I love it. The emotions in the words, the expression on the lady’s face. It’s a great line.

Rebel Mulan

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Has anyone ever noticed, or pointed out, that Mulan’s family is all women and only one man? Seriously, her grandmother, her mother and herself and then just her dad. And her dad’s all ‘honor, honor, now that things are tense I’m going to lash out at you about not knowing your place even though earlier […]

Procrastinator

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Mulan is a procrastinator, if nothing else. I mean, she was writing notes on her arm for her ‘exam’ the morning of said test. If she wasn’t prepared, it meant she hadn’t been studying. Which, by college kid standards, means she was procrastinating rather than doing the necessary work. A girl after my own heart.

Freaking Site

I thought quick post would let me just post my thoughts as I went.  Nope, all this time I’ve been saving everything as a draft. Annoying. Let’s try this again.

From the New World to China

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

And here we go onto one of my favorite Disney Princesses. I love Mulan. I love that she ignores society’s rules to protect her father. I love that she’s a badass. I also love that she doesn’t rely on a man to find happiness. She finds happiness in being awesome, oh and honor. She brings […]

Tragic Ending

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Now I remember why I hate this movie. John Smith annoys me so much that Pocahontas falling in love with him just pisses me off. But, as a child, what bothered me the most was actually the ending. Our lovely heroine is all in love, the conflict is all resolved. And John Smith leaves. Disney […]

Gay Representation

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Can I just say that I really think Radcliffe’s assistant dude is gay? He just…gives off the vibe in spades. Not sure if it’s his efficiency, his ability to make things out of anything, his utter not-a-bruteness or what. Yes, yes, I realize those are all gay men stereotypes, but I think he’s a gay […]

Colors of the Wind

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

My favorite song in the entire movie. I still hate John Smith, but dammmn the colors in this sequence are beyond gorgeous. The song has such a wonderful message about how he doesn’t know everything as he thinks he does. Also, Pocahontas is gorgeous. Love her.
