Monday, February 28, 2011Disney Disappointment at 5:18 AM
You know what's really upsetting?
The harsh modern reality of Disney, that's what. And Pixar, etc. Do you remember the time when animated films continuously belted out musical classics that are sung decade after decade. From Beauty and the Beast's Tale as Old as Time, to Part of Your World, even up to Tarzan, musical composition has been satisfactory.
Not only the musical score, but the voice actors. Now, there is a reason why these people are called 'voice actors' because they are not screen actors who want to have a go at being the voice of the main character in an animated film. It is because they were trained to be specifically a voice actor.
It's disappointing because animated films used to feature voices which fit the character perfectly, with all the clarity and sing-song qualities Belle or Jasmine should have. I don't understand how any actor who wasn't auditioned, promoted, and casted just for their voice can so easily and repeatedly play the voices of big animations. It just seems like lately, even the magic of animation has been stolen by the hungry jaws of the modern era. Think about it, what cartoons are worth waking up in the morning for now?
Thursday, February 24, 2011Awkward Child Moments at 5:59 PM
I remember when I was in grade 3 or 4 or something, which would've made me 8 ish? I was taking Art classes in a shopping village nearby, and I started to ask about lesbians and if my neighbouring drawers knew what a lesbian was. Of course, I was influenced by schoolyard boastings of other children who liked to claim they knew more naughty things about life than the other kids, so I tried to take that outside.
Embarrassingly, a very concerned art teacher called my mum in to discuss my 'possible curiosities' and ended with very cautious questioning later on. I simply said the kids at school mentioned lesbian and I didn't know what it was..I can't believe that I made one of those awkward moments created by a naive little kids.
Friday, February 18, 2011Pitiful Petite at 4:36 PM
And so I realised how annoying it was to shop online when you are 5ft with a curvy bootay. My upper body is quite slim but then I have some donald duck business going on. Petite length? Yes. Petite ass? NO. So I made it my rule not ever to purchase jeans online. I've bought leggings and a pair of korean jeans before, which seemed to fit me length-wise as well as ass-wise, which was a surpise! However, I have never found a pair of european jeans (ranging from target, nudie, ksubis, levis, sass & bide, etc), that have fit me, they usually end up not looking like pants in the end...more like, a disproportioned snake which tried to swallow more than it can handle.
My measurements (they vary up to 3-4cm each time I measure - dodgy!!) are approx. 82-63-89 which is ~ 32-24-35?? I've worn 34 H&M shirts, generally AUS 8 tshirts, AUS 6 dresses and loose blouses, etc. and AUS 8 shorts/skirts. Sleeves are a tinsy bit too long for me usually, but not so long that it needs alterations.
I made a huge haul from ASOS and after reading all the reviews about size, some say it runs too big, some too small, other 5ft asian girls purchased a petite UK 4/6 (although heaps lighter than me) which got me even more nervous as I ordered size 8 in petite AND in the normal range.
On a second glance, I might exchange the horse print tunic for a size 6 as it looks a bit big on the model already, and she must be nearly a foot taller. I'm also not sure if the models are wearing the regular or petite sizes, as they come in both and the photos look the same...
I also bought a few spring shirts (which is pretty wearable all year round in Aus), a Fred Perry pink cashmere mix cardi, nice lavender bottoms, and misc. I wish I had more holidays up my sleeve, as I haven't gotten a chance to wear any summer dresses I bought last year.
ASOS Laser Cut Leather Short
Also on my wish list is the Jeffrey Campbell LITA's in mustard, and PIXIE in black suede. The power of the cult is amazing, these sell out in a few hours! I am waiting for solestruck to restock on the PIXIE's. *Fingers crossed*
