This might be the greatest drawing I have ever seen in my life.
It’s been awhile since I’ve had some Disney on here, which is not normal. So, here you go.
And it’s still the best Disney movie of all time.
Beauty and the Beast has been there for me. Through everything. People ask, “What would Jesus do?” I ask, “What would Belle do?” I think it taught me a lot about social acceptance and welcoming the unique—because Lord knows I am. And it also taught me about politics. (The Brits and the French don’t get along. At least, not for long.)
Don’t judge a book by its cover. People who are rough around the edges are usually the sweetest kind.
Brains over brawn. Muscles go away. Knowledge doesn’t. Books are wonderful tools. Use them.
Beauty is found within.
I’m still waiting for a dude with a library, though. The castle is optional.
This is the best revelation ever.
I know I haven’t posted anything commentary on my life lately, so I’m going to do that. Right now.
School started, which sucks. The first few days were rough, but now I’m getting into the swing, and I’m already wishing it was Christmas. I’m taking playwriting, which is AMAZING. I’m super excited. It’s going to be epic.
I’m taking two AP courses—AP Language and AP U.S. History (aka APUSH). I love, love my APUSH teacher, Doc Savage. She’s so hipster and she doesn’t even know it, which makes her even more hipster. I’m going to be quoting her a lot. She says the most awesome things. AP Language, which qualifies as an English credit, is going to be hard, but the good news is that I also love that teacher, Mrs. McCall. I had her as a freshman two years ago (I’m a junior), so we already have a solid understanding, which, unfortunately, means that she will push me harder. Oh, well….
The rest of my classes are okay. I have a REALLY cool fourth period class, though. Pumped for that too.
On to other news, Eureka made me upset the other day. Wallace Shawn was a guest star, which was fantastic (I flipped out when Allison said, “inconceivable”. Did anyone else catch that? The Princess Bride references for the win!) But he’s ruining Jack and Allison’s relationship. I mean, I knew it was going to happen, their relationship having little bumps in the road and road blocks, but giving them an ultimatum between their jobs and each other? That’s just cold.
Zane and Jo need to get it together and just admit that they should just be.
(By the way, poor awkward Holly. I’m really glad Fargo is a sweetheart about it. Parrish would just be a douche. Which is why I do not particularly care for him.)
DOCTOR WHO COMES BACK ON SATURDAY! ARE ALL THE WHOVIANS AS PSYCHED AS I AM? OH MY GOD. MY OVARIES ARE WAITING TO IMPLODE. LET’S KILL HITLER!
Dude, I was watching The Beauty and the Beast on my phone last night at like, one A.M. (I have bouts of insomnia), and I said to myself, sarcastically, “I bet Gaston’s parents are really proud of him.” And then I realized, they probably are actually, because guys were supposed to act manly and the girl wasn’t supposed to be independent and strong like Belle back then, which is why she was odd. I love that line, after the opening musical number which, by the way, is totally amazing, when Gaston says, “Belle, it’s about time you got your head out of those books and paid attention to more important things, like me. The whole town’s talking about it. It’s not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting ideas, and thinking….” And then Belle insults him and he says thank you. Oh, Gaston. You’re just an illiterate, sexist pig. I love it when he dies. It’s kind of cathartic for me. I want to yell, “THAT’S KARMA, BITCH!”
And when Beast—Adam—gives Belle the library, I die. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I would melt if a dude gave me a library. I would be like, “MY BODY IS READY.”
And as I was watching it, I really fell in love with Cogsworth and Lumiere. Again. They’re so fantastic together. I love how one’s totally English and the other is totally French and they always argue, because that’s what the French and the English do when their together, they argue. It’s great hidden political commentary on Disney’s part.
I need someone to do a GIF of the two of them, during “Be Our Guest”, when their in the spotlight and it’s the “life is so unnerving, for a servant who’s not serving” part, and Lumiere grabs Cogsworth’s leg and Cogsworth ends up in the jell-o. That cracks me up. Can someone do that for me?
I guess I’m done, then.
This is my favorite Disney movie ever. I WILL LOVE IT UNTIL THE DAY THAT I DIE. It’s beast.
(Haha. Get it? Beast. I crack myself up.)
best disney monologue ever.
“Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away, but she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart, and as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his twenty-first year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair, and lost all hope, for who could ever learn to love a beast?”
