i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

that is all i ask.

When I saw the trailer for this when I went to see the Lego movie it was so stunning I knew it was a movie I had to see

Also it looks like it;s by the same person who did El tirge 

which was a great and fun show 

ALSO!!! So far the trailers have be CHOCK FULL of allusions and references to different parts of Mexican culture and history!!

That beautiful lady up there is La Muerte and she’s straight up based off Catrinas which are popular figures and dolls used to represent Dia De Los Muertos.

NOT ONLY THAT but the weird texture on her skin is sugar! Why sugar? Sugar skulls! They’re a common treat found being sold by vendors and made by other families on Dia De Los Muertos.

BUT WOAH DON’T STOP THERE Along with having those two things play into her design she also has cempasúchil (marigold to put it simply) flowers in her hat. Why’s that important?  Those are called flor de los muertos, flower of the dead. They’re used to honor the dead and decorate the altars made by loved ones of the deceased.

And this is just ONE design. All of that thought, care, and attention to detail went into ONE design and that’s only scratching the surface. This isn’t even touching on the adelita twins NOR the town itself.

Like really, this is turning out to be a film crafted out of pure love and respect for the culture and the medium itself and, like OP, all I ask is that you PLEASE go check out this film when it’s released.

Because while you may verbally support it, the studio and the industry itself NEEDS to see money tied in with your voice and the voices of everyone else who has been supporting this film.

And hey! Danny Trejo and Ron Perlman are in it!

So yeah, GO WATCH THE BOOK OF LIFE.

dude I don’t know anybody who isn’t excited for this film.

The plot in this summary isn’t accurate! But that’s okay, that means there’s more reason to go see it!!

LA CATRINA IS SO BEAUTIFUL LOOK AT HER WHEN SHE APPEARS THERE’S ROSE PETAAALLLSSS

XIBALBA IS SO SCARY TOO I’M ALREADY AFRAID OMFG RON PERLMAN THO

you are all fools if you don’t go see this but I am sure all of you will

This is SO important for people to realize…so often i have had people ask me why they are the same weight as myself or someone else, but they wear a different size, or complain that they look so very different. Body composition people, and skeletal structure. We are each unique. Don’t ever compare yourself to someone else in a negative way.

There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE. 

If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”.

myers-briggs personality types

↳ INTJ (The Mastermind)

INTJs are one of the rarest of the sixteen personality types, and account for approximately 1-2% of the population.

Hallmarks of the INTJ include independence of thought and a desire for efficiency. They work best when given autonomy and creative freedom. They harbor an innate desire to express themselves by conceptualizing their own intellectual designs. They have a talent for analyzing and formulating complex theories. INTJs are generally well-suited for occupations within academia, research, consulting, management, science, engineering, and law. They are often acutely aware of their own knowledge and abilities—as well as their limitations and what they don’t know (a quality that tends to distinguish them from INTPs). INTJs thus develop a strong confidence in their ability and talents, making them natural leaders.

In forming relationships, INTJs tend to seek out others with similar character traits and ideologies. Agreement on theoretical concepts is an important aspect of their relationships. By nature INTJs can be demanding in their expectations, and approach relationships in a rational manner. As a result, INTJs may not always respond to a spontaneous infatuation but wait for a mate who better fits their set criteria. They tend to be stable, reliable, and dedicated. Harmony in relationships and home life tends to be extremely important to them. They generally withhold strong emotion and do not like to waste time with what they consider irrational social rituals. This may cause non-INTJs to perceive them as distant and reserved; nevertheless, INTJs are usually very loyal partners who are prepared to commit substantial energy and time into a relationship to make it work.

Trivia:

  • the third rarest type in the population; the most rare among women
  • among types least likely to suffer from heart disease and hypertension
  • least likely of all types to believe in a higher spiritual power
  • one of two types with the highest college GPA
  • among types with the highest income
  • of all types, least likely to state that they value home/family, financial security, relationships & friendships, and community service
  • Over represented among MBA students and female small business owners
  • Commonly found in scientific or technical fields, computer occupations, and legal professions
  • famous intjs: hillary clinton, isaac newton, dwight eisenhower, and lewis carroll

 The University of Sankoré, or Sankore Masjid is one of three ancient centers of learning located in TimbuktuMaliWest Africa. The three mosques of Sankoré, Djinguereber Mosque and Sidi Yahya compose the famous University of Timbuktu. During the 14th -16th century, Sankore University enrolled more foreigen students than New York University today. 

The Mali Empire gained direct control over the city of Timbuktu in 1324 during the reign of Mansa Kankou Musa also known as Musa I “King of Kings”. He designed and saw the construction of one of Sankore’s first great mosques and the Jingeray Ber Masjid in 1327.The foundations of the previous structure were laid around 988 A.D. on the orders of the city’s chief judge Al-Qadi Aqib ibn Mahmud ibn Umar. A local mandinka lady, esteemed for her wealth, financed his plans to turn Sankoré into a world class learning institution. 

By the end of Mansa Musa’s reign (early 14th century CE), the Sankoré Masjid had been converted into a fully staffed Madrassa (Islamic school or in this case university) with the largest collections of books in Africa since the Library of Alexandria. The level of learning at Timbuktu’s Sankoré University was superior to that of all other Islamic centers in the world. The Sankoré Masjid was capable of housing 25,000 students and had one of the largest libraries in the world with between 400,000 to 700,000 manuscripts.

Today, the intellectual legacy of Timbuktu is neglected in historical discourse. These pages of WORLD history tend to get ripped out.
