I got really mad that The Wind Rises didn't win so... →
I decided to reblog ALL of The Wind Rises posts as angrily as possible.
SERIOUSLY THOUGH?! I liked Frozen a lot. It’s fun. The songs are great.
BUT LET’S BE HONEST HERE.
The story, and character development was definitely nowhere near the level that Miyazaki’s latest work was on.
Now I know…
Exactly. I feel like not only for the animated feature award but also live action short and VFX award winners are bland too.
tbh the public/mass/audience/fans can be both supportive and terrifying. when an actor made a mistake they immediately get criticized from every angles and ways possible. seeing how both john travolta and leo’s ridiculed for making a mistake and not getting an oscar, living the life must be difficult as all hell. not only are you aware of your own mistakes, etc, but the world helps rub it in your face.
Aggred. In the end, people don’t give much thought of whether Leo could get an oscar or not; all that matters is that they can spare some second of cheap entertaining.
Anyway, I think it’s obvious he couldn’t get ones with his way of choosing roles and scripts though. A great actor is way different from a famous ones.
I learnt a new word and I love the sound of it: kintsukuroi. It is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with seams of gold. Kintsugi repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the container even more beautiful than it was prior to being broken. Not a very common idea in western culture!
Instead of diminishing the bowl’s appeal and appreciation, the “break” offers the container a new sense of its vitality and resilience. The bowl has become more beautiful for having been broken. One can say that the true life of the bowl began the moment it was dropped!
Imagine you are that clay pot: celebrate your flaws and imperfections. Remember that you being you is what makes you uniquely beautiful.
And remember: “The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway
An interesting essay on the art of kintsukuroi can be found in Flickwerk, The Aesthetics of Mended Japanese Ceramics.

I’m pretty sure that I’ve reblogged this before, but its actually one of my favorite posts on tumblr. The idea that something can be more beautiful after being broken is so moving to me. I kind of want one of these someday, or to make my own. It’s an amazing concept, and I love the fact that it’s an artform.
The overall concept is called wabi-sabi. It’s actually seen all throughout japan’s traditional art& culture…too many things to get into now, but it’s basically a nationwide aesthetic that finds things more poetic and beautiful when they’re incomplete, tarnished/patina’d, transient, visually obscured, and/or imperfect.
Wabi sabi’s actually sort of more about nostalgia, melancholy, and mystery, but this is actually a really nice positive view on it.
So this was totally suppose to be for Valentine’s Day but I just got around to finishing it lol!
A little comic (?) about Ulmo cause seriously he’s like the coolest. Constantly helping out people of Middle Earth when he could. Obviously wasn’t able to stop a lot of horrible things that happened but still he was like the most active of the Valar.
And also since it was for Valentine’s Day this was just kind of for everyone and especially all you single peeps, to celebrate all kinds of love and not just romantic cause you really don’t need romance in your life to be happy.
So I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and a good weekend. Thank you to all my awesome friends (especially The Company you know who you are), followers, and people in general who support my art by liking and reblogging. UuU
You’re all wonderful <3
