can you imagine how fucking relieved the french must have been when we reached the year 2000? 

they went from having to say “mille neuf cents quatre-vingt-dix-neuf” to just having to say “deux mille” to say the year

Let It Go (multi-language) - Frozen (x)

(English, French, German, Dutch, Mandarin, Swedish, Japanese, Spanish, Polish, Hungarian, Castilian, Catalan, Italian, Korean, Serbian, Cantonese, Portuguese, Bahasa Malaysian, Russian, Danish, Bulgarian, Norwegian, Thai, Canadian French, Flemish)

I listened to this the first time and only realized that the first line was in English and was enjoying it so much that I had no idea that so many languages had passed my ears. It was so seamless and beautiful to hear them like this. I had to add this hear for the sheer appreciation.

after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.


the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.



My favorite part are the white feminists who are raving about this movie because “strong independent woman yaaaas!!”

i’m just wondering why there are herbs and fruits and vegetables written in a faded, creepy red on a prison-like wall in chinese.  are herbs and fruits and vegetables in chinese supposed to be part of some sort of scare tactics?  or am i missing something here?

HAHAHAHAHA

The above makes this so much better

OMG THIS MOVIE IS BULLSHIT OF THE HIGHEST ORDER THEY COULDN’T EVEN BOTHER TO GET SOMEONE TO WRITE ACCURATE SHIT IN CHINESE ON THE WALL THEY PROBABLY GOOGLED A TAKE-OUT MENU OR SOMETHING THIS IS WHAT A $20MIL BUDGET BUYS IN HOLLYWHITE EVERYONE! 

I just asked a family member to translate this. They came back with “Keep Clean. Apple, scallop &amp; ginger, orange, tomato, grape”


Oh damn. Hahaha

"How do we say @? It’s called a “malpa” in Poland (that’s the word for “monkey” in Polish), a “sobaka” in Russia (the word for “dog” in Russian), and a “papaka” in Greece (the word for “duckling”in Greek). My favourite is one of the names it’s received in Finland: “miukumauku” - Finnish for “miaow-meow”."
