STOP DISNEY FROM TRADEMARKING DIA DE LOS MUERTOS! I am signing this petition to stop Walt Disney from appropriating and exploiting Mexican religion and culture.Dia de los Muertos is a religious observance during which people, and particularly native peoples, in Mexico, the United States, and abroad, honor ancestors and loved ones who have died. This important religious, spiritual, and cultural observance pre-dates the invasion of Mexico by the Spanish. We celebrate and honor our deceased loved ones by making altars and placing offerings of food such as pan de muertos baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, incense, yellow marigolds known as cempaxochitl, and offering prayers and the smoke of copal.
an article about this in case you’re itching for a quick source, there’s also some posted with the petitition
I am surprised that Disney went that far… that’s pretty far. Guess I should know not to be surprised by now…
for those who are being complete idiots and jerks about this. It’s NOT that Disney is securing the film title of “Dia De Los Muertos” I really could give two fucks if that was the case. It’s that Disney is TRYING TO SECURE RIGHTS TO EVERYTHING DIA DE LOS MUERTOS RELATED.
That is fucked up on soooooo many levels. It’s not their holiday and it’s not a trademark to them.
Please reblog and spread the word.
yeah read the articles ya’ll… it is not about just getting a movie title.
“I wish Disney would make a princess movie for the older generations. We’ve grown up now and none of the Disney princess dreams apply anymore. I want an older, realistic princess.”
But no tho.
Go watch Enchanted because that’s as close as you’re going to get… at least from actual Disney.
Smear Campaign of the Day: GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who has been battling a certain “Google Problem” for nearly a decade, apparently thought it wise to have his latest political ad feature a Mitt Romney lookalike firing a brown, frothy substance at a cardboard cutout of his image.
Then again, considering Santorum is now tied for first place with Romney, maybe it was? After all, everyone loves a good poop joke.
“You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities,” he told MusicRadar.com, “and I’m hoping that if it does come down to it, we’ll see a Republican in the White House… and that it’s Rick Santorum.”
I’ll be a readin’ ass sucka because I will NOT contribute to the extravagantly lavish lifestyles of a bunch of absurdly rich people while the majority of this country is struggling just to break even.
Fuck that shit. I’mma get me a library card and call it a fucking day.
This is so fucking stupid. Like, seriously? You ~encourage add-ons~ and then you do this? It’s obvious the site has these capabilities otherwise MISSING E WOULDN’T EVEN FUCKING WORK. If you just made those adjustments YOURSELVES there wouldn’t even be a need for the add-on to begin with.
And I’m weighing the ease of blogging with Missing E against the ~horrors~ of unsupported blogging (not that I ever really asked ~Support~ for help before…except with my tags which was apparently Missing E related). And something just sticks in my craw about how this ~warning~ is worded… Like Karpypoo and Frands intend to ~make good~ on some of these threats.
Is this reading like a ransom note to anyone else, or is it just me?
(In re: this blog post)
Yo, assholes: every tweet is quoted directly from one of over 50 Ron Paul newsletters. Don’t believe me? Here they are, and if you find a single tweet I blogged that’s not in the official Ron Paul newsletters, I’ll go make a donation to the Paul campaign.
Having worked in a Congressional office before, I understand that the fact that he didn’t personally write them is bullshit. Normally Congressmen don’t write all their literature (after all, what are staff for), but this shit doesn’t get sent out time and time again without (at a minimum) implicit approval from the boss. This was not “misattributed” or published by some malicious 3rd party aimed at bringing down the Libertarian Chosen One, this is the fucked up shit that Candidate Paul and his staff believe. Deal with it.
If someone ghost writes for Ron Paul… aren’t they Ghost writing his opinion for him… what?
That’s what ghost writing is. Someone else jots down the beliefs and thoughts of the subject and it gets approved by the boss, and in this case it’s Ron Paul.
Ron Paul is a women/PoC/education/glbt/middle class hating asshole.
People need to wake up to that.
By supporting Ron Paul, you support these regressive views.
MotherFUCK Ron Paul and his backwards, archaic ass. He’s got some great campaign runners, I’ll give him that, but he’s the exact same sack of shit in a different wrapping. I will be DAMNED if I call him President of anything.
Weren’t they talking about casting Marilyn Manson as Frank-N-Furter?

Yes, but that’s when they were first talking about the project, then they apparently canceled it, now it’s apparently back, and the only article supplied here is the super old one. If they truly are still going for it, they may have someone else in mind, who knows.
NOOOOO no no no no no no
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCKKKKKKKK YYYYYYYYYOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU HOLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDDD
SOMEBODY ‘BOUT TO GET SHANKED UP IN THIS BITCH.
Thank you! It’s even less cute when you check this out:
Tumblr security leak caused by developer’s typo while using “vim”: Initial bytes of PHP script were “i?php” instead of “<?php”, which caused web server to serve source code of page (including passwords) instead of interpreting it as script
So, those billions from investors - not going towards quality control so much, huh? This is reason number 11,455 that I am against the “explore” feature - when the goddang house is on fire, don’t add new curtains!!
