THIS INSTRUMENT IS CALLED THE KALIMBA. THIS IS FATE.

holy shit

this is the best kalimba playing i’ve ever seen EVER

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT A KALIMBA LOOKED LIKE UNTIL JUST THIS SECOND IM BLOWN AWAY

I had one of these growing up and I was such shit at it I literally have never heard one used for anything other than plonky, labored renditions of ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ in my living room. This is gorgeous.

I feel that things like this are posted so often with no historical information and I think that’s pretty damaging even if it’s unintentional. It just contributes to the erasure of non-western societies and their cultures.
The Kalimba is an African instrument common throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and it’s also known as the “sansa” and “mbira”. It was typically played while walking by traveling “griots” who keep the history of the tribe or village and for entertainment purposese. And get this: the wood or bamboo-tiled instruments were first invented 3000 years ago! And the metal-tiled ones appeared in the Zambezi River Valley 1,300 years ago. There’s so much history behind this instrument and it’s an injustice to the those whose culture it originates from to post about it and never once mention them. Anyway this is just tiny bit of the history I felt like adding from the wiki page, and the entire thing it very interesting so I’d encourage you to read it all!

It took me 12 years to go frame by frame and realize that weird lag I had always noticed was Tulio pausing to kiss Miguel before pushing him off the cliff in a desperate attempt to save their lives…

MY SHIP IS UNSINKABLE

The Road to El Dorado: Miguel & Tulio: The original script had them be lovers, calling each other ‘darling’ and such. Although the idea was shot down, they left in scenes where you can kind of tell what they were pushing for.”

You’re forgetting the scene in the beginning where they’re prisoners in the ship. Tulio is lifting Miguel so Miguel and look out, and Tulio briefly rubs his face against Miguel’s ass. Best. ever. 

Don’t

fucking get me started

of El fucking Dorado

^This part is subtle and often missed. At the end, when Tulio and Miguel are reunited, they run to hug each other and Altivo interrupts just as Tulio has his hand on his pal’s waist.

All gifs here made by me because SACRIFICES! I actually have hundreds more to make but who knows if I’ll ever finish—especially since my hard drive kaboomed and I lost my perfectly organized clips.

Don’t let that image fool you. Click on the video; you won’t regret it.

(You’ll probably also shed a few tears at the end.)

AHHHHHHHHH.  So good!

See this, THIS is how adult education and illiteracy should be in real life.
People being kind, supportive, encouraging, not mocking because you took a little longer to learn something.
I’m sorry I get really emotional about people learning and education and I’m crying really hard right now because I really wish this was a commercial for a adult education network/organization that was becoming mainstream and commonplace and celebrated and not about alcohol

This is a beautiful commercial. Even though it is a commercial for alcohol, it hands down beats the usual marketing devices for such products.

this is fucking fantastic

omg this ad is going to make me cry. <333

TMNT to feature turtles “balls”

pinguinmitbrille:

mediatonight:

While trailers for the Michael Bay produced TMNT film look promising, all is not well. A source close to the production claims a sequence in the film where April sees Donatello’s ‘balls’ is not likely to be cut. The source described the scene below.

"April is hanging out in the Turtles underground home/lair . Donatello, who is portrayed as the most human like sort of "sexy" of the four is taking a shower. Not realizing he jumps out of the shower - April gasps and does a double take and says something along the lines of "you have those?" . Donatello says something along the lines of "whoa my shell is cold today" before grabbing his boa staff and covering up. It’s a play on the scene from the Sex and the City movie where Samantha catches a man exposing himself after a rooftop shower. April later mentions it in passing to Splinter who says "they are anatomically correct…" or something similar. "

It sounds like a cheap laugh but not totally out of character. Some of the other news of this films potty humor mentions Splinter talking about how hard it is to goto the bathroom in his suit and a pizza party that jokes about “4/20” .

As TMNT fan, I actually should be disgusted or find it horrible or something, but I’m only laughing my ass off. Cause this sounds SO Bay. Transformers had a literal scene where Bumblebee “peed” over a dude. I don’t expect anything better for the TMNT movie. My expectations for this movie are very, very, very low.
And I’ve come across so much (fake) spoilers and hints of this movie and they all sound so Bay, that I only can laugh of how horrible it will be. Like April making out with one of the Turtles. If that will be shown in the movie, then I’ll laugh so hard.

Another look at the Dragon Race fans: Note the kid lifting the dad’s helmet and the guy punching his friend(?) in the head. All this characterization and much more is going on in a one-second crowd shot!
(EDIT) And thanks to Lovessnotlout for spotting (how did I miss this?!?) the guy who actually falls out of the stands!

I said I wouldn’t reblog GIFs from the trailer, but exception here for:
A) it’s  not really spoilery.
B) The animators who do crowd shots definitely had fun with this one. Reblogging to appreciate their work. It will go by so fast at normal speed.   (I do love the punch and the guy falling off).
