Yeah, I agree.
In short, let's called about weirdness again instead of poor animals being killed.
Talk about weird: Disney's created movies with such controversial subjects as death and religion and even about the human psychological condition, and I find it weird (in a good way) that it is the one that's based upon a classically dark Victor Hugo novel that shows us all of these things (The Hunchback of Notre Dame in which Quasimodo's mother dies in protecting her son; where the holy cathedral of Notre Dame--and the church related symbols therein--stands as a towering pillar of strength against Frollo's nearly satanic quest for his own brand of justice; wherein Frollo himself has his psyche tested as he appears to be evil with a hint of pretend nice-ness to cover it all up; and from whence the gypsy Esmerald asks for all outcasts [from her own people to those less fortunate than her and probably even to those who are discriminated against nowadays, ranging from atheists and various believers, to gays/bis/lesbians, to women, to minorities, and even to just those who are different from societal standards, like we geeky fanpersons] to be protected from injustice & cruelty by The Big Guy's mercy).
Sing the bells of Notre Dame
Anymore weirdness worth noting?
So what are you trying to say, that all the people you lister differ from societal norms. Honestly, there is no particular group or kind or social or economic who who is discriminated against. I think were all a little biased about sombody and nobody is prefect, flawless or blameless. We all guilty, It doesn't make anybody a bad person, we just all kind of misunderstand each other. Nobody is really completely right or wrong or worse in this. Everybody is guilty of being judgmental in one way or another and everybody has been judged in some way or another. It's just human. All we really can do as human beings is to try to understand each other better collectively or as individuals.
Just my two cents...
Whilst this is true due to human fault, I just wish that sometimes we still had beliefs in a just world (i.e. a world akin to the united-by-shared-ground-and-magical-aspects species in Fraggle Rock)
You mean a world shared with Fraggles?
I mean everything did not start of that way on the show and everyone was imperfect and had fault on the show as well. I think the show was showing how things could be if we all too the time out to understand each other and where were all coming from a little better.
Agreed and I wish we'd do that more.
2 of my cats where I guess looking at a bug, but they where moving thier heads in sync. It was a bit creepy
Sounds a bit odd.
Ooh! That does sounds pretty wired.
But weirdness makes our day, sometimes!
I see lots of really weird things at times, although sometimes they're just weird fer me. Like, something really subtle or random, like when I took the train today I saw this guy who had pillows on him, they looked like thay were staying on with massive rubber bands! Vair scary stuff. Kinda hard to explain, though.
I saw something weird today too... Kiki posting again!
But seriously what weird--in a good way--DX re-united (again) for one-night only! And of course, if you're down with that, then we've got two words for ya...
Heh, that's a point s'pose! It HAS been a while, though lately I've been lurking(ish) about...
But at least you're back in some capacity.
Don't lurk, Kiki-Kramer, POST!
