yoho yoho a lawyer’s life for me
I wanted to host an Ace Attorney giveaway alongside my other one, this being The Big Haul I guess. What you’ll win is every single game in the series that’s been released outside of Japan, although only followers will receive the newest, Ace Attorney 5, available through digital download.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve played them all or if you’re new to the series and want to try it out, all I’m hoping is that you’ll enjoy each copy! u v u
- One reblog, one like.
- Followers will receive Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies as well.
- The games are European, but they’re all regular DS games and the DS console is not region locked, so you’ll be able to enjoy them regardless.
- That said, I’ll ship anywhere!
- Keep ask boxes open, and please reply within 2 days or I’ll pick another winner.
It ends on the same date as the other one, Dec 25!
Watch the entire “Let It Go” scene from Frozen featuring Idina Menzel performing as Elsa.
If you don’t wanna go see Frozen, this is the best 3:39 of the movie (except the short that plays beforehand). What a jam.
goosebumps every time!
Oh god Sarah you are so right
This character is basically Elphaba and Let it Go = No Good Deed
Biggest difference? Idina’s voice does not match this character or it’s expressions.
A voice so strong was not meant for a character so cotton candy soft. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY DIDN’T MAKE HER EMOTIONAL RANGE LARGE ENOUGH TO MATCH THE INTENSITY OF THE MUSIC??? The song is good, yeah. But the energy in the scene from this character design makes me cringe. It’s fucking Rapunzel trying to sing a song from Wicked fucking fuck what.
This was really lazy, Disney.
Elsa is an Elphaba copy
i think the big problem with the emotional range is the fact that they literally went out of their way to not make her face contort with the emotional waves of the song, because they wanted to make her stay “pretty”. if you watch Idina Menzel sing, well, pretty much anything, but especially her songs from Wicked, she is EMOTING. she is earnestly performing ev-ry sing-le syll-a-ble. she’s not “attractive” when she does it, but that doesn’t matter, because you’re not looking at her for her face, you’re looking for the feeling.
if you watch the video, the song kills, but the disconnect comes from the fact that elsa isn’t emoting. and this goes right along with all the problems of the production. it’s quite obvious the animators don’t care enough, because you have this intense song being sung by this powerhouse of a performer, and they aren’t trying to make the match; it’s all halfhearted.
and elsa, if you ask me, is a poor-man’s elphaba, because she’s not emoting. when i listen to wicked, i respond, because i hear the emotions and i remember seeing how it was performed; i cried during defying gravity because of the performance. when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.
toni is always better at saying what I want to say so reblogging again
and you know what? It’s sad when the most emotional part of the song happens when you can’t see the character’s face:
THAT STOMP WAS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF THE WHOLE SCENE WHEN THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN:
SHE IS LIFTING A GODDAMN SHOW PALACE
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FUCKING COOL
LOOK AT HER. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC. AND CRINGE AT THE UNCOMFORTABLE DISPLACEMENT OF IT ALL WITH ME
“when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.”
Y E S
((also this was the only song scene in the movie that actually made me feel anything….and now that I see it out of context it’s really mediocre, but compared to everything else, it was amazing and I called it “phenomenal” in my liveblog @_@))I think if we all just watched the movie without audio, we’d be disappointed.
In the old days when the 2-D department was still a thing, they used to take the performer’s expressions into consideration. Look at the work they did with the Genie in Aladdin or Ariel from the Little Mermaid. The animators would look at photos and video of the performers to take cues from so they could make the drawings live. That’s why we all respond to those movies so strongly, because we can see the real feeling coming through the drawings. That’s what these movies are missing. What a lot more 3-D animators need to do is get back to basics and start molding their animation like the old by hand animators did.
Don’t just make a model perfect audience avatar that can be anyone. Make it specific. Make it look like the actor. Make emote like the actor. Make it fucking creepy that you can see the actor’s mannerisms in it. Seriously. Look back at your most favorite Disney movie from the Golden age. Find your favorite character. Look up the actor and then flip out a little at how right they got it.
That’s why this fails. It doesn’t look like Idina. She doesn’t emote like Idina. And that’s why it’s fucked up and doesn’t resonate. Because the artists failed to do what artists should do, which is to bring their art to life.

Portrait of Elizabeth Murray
England (c. 1650)
Oil on canvas, 124 x 119 cm
I think I have seen pictures of this before, in high school maybe, but I don’t remember there being a second person before. I seem to remember this image being cropped differently too, which is very disturbing because now that I see the entire painting, the way I remember it being cropped was very clearly and deliberately intended to remove the person holding the tray of flowers.
Since we’re throwing haymakers at the kyriarchy today, I think this is something that we should really be talking about too, because it happens
ALL. THE. TIME.
Level 1: People of Color from Medieval, Renaissance, and other Early Modern European works were often literally painted over in later decades or centuries.
Level 2: It was very fashionable in a lot of 17th and 18th century paintings to have a Black servant featured in portraits of very important historical figures from European History.
Honestly? They’re practically ubiquitous. A lot of the very famous paintings you’ve seen of European and American historical figures have a Black servant in them that have been cropped out or painted over.
Those silly stock photos from your American History Professor’s Powerpoint?
Your Professor’s PowerPoint for “George Washington”:

PowerPoint on Maria Henriette Stuart (with some commentary about the Habsburg jaw):
But, because of whitewashed history curricula, teachers and professors continue to use the cropped images because they don’t want their lecture to get “derailed” by a discussion about race.
These images are also more commonly seen on stock photo sites, including ones for academic use.
I honestly can’t find anyone really writing about this, or even any analysis on how often the cropped photos are used.
The reason they are so easy to crop out is because of the the artistic conventions which reflect the power hierarchy:
Oil paintings of aristocratic families from this period make the point clearly. Artists routinely positioned black people on the edges or at the rear of their canvasses, from where they gaze wonderingly at their masters and mistresses. In order to reveal a ‘hierarchy of power relationships’, they were often placed next to dogs and other domestic animals, with whom they shared, according to the art critic and novelist David Dabydeen, ‘more or less the same status’. Their humanity effaced, they exist in these pictures as solitary mutes, aesthetic foils to their owners’ economic fortunes.
This is drastically oversimplified, but at least it addresses it directly.
If anyone knows more on any studies or statistical evidence on this tendency, feel free to add it.
I learned something new today. I mean, I realized that the text of history books I read in school was biased and white-washed but it never actually occurred to me that the images might be skewed as well.
