one of my favorite things is how people talk to themselves in tumblr tags, taking this space designed for metadata classification and using it as a form of parenthetical speech. those grey little tags feel so cozy, a whispered dimension to the flat communication of the net

i havent seen ANYONE discuss what fox news said about muslims. and the growing tension towards muslims after news stations saying they’re scared of ISIS sleeper cells in the US (because muslims are always, always targeted and bombarded with surveillance and locked up and killed under false pretenses of terrorism when this happens) and it fucking scares me so fucking much.

don’t ignore me.

i do not care about highschool or getting involved or making memories i want to pass my classes and get the fuck out

Anime Recommendation: Uchouten Kazoku (The Eccentric Family)

Welcome to the other most criminally under-watched show of 2013. For a while, I couldn’t decide whether this show or Kyousougiga would be my AOTY 2013. I chose Kyousougiga because I enjoyed the mythical tone but it’s a matter of preference. That being said, Uchoten Kazoku is another visually stunning masterpiece by PA Works and also happens to be a family drama as well.

image

In this fantasy version of Kyoto, there exists a balance between three races. The Tanuki whom possesses the ability to shapshift, the Tengu who control the wind and the skies, and the humans that go about their lives blissfully unaware of the nature of either race. Uchoten Kazoku centers on a family of Tanuki who have recently lost their father and are adapting to the changes and grief it has brought them.

image

Uchouten Kazoku understands organic conflict on a level you will rarely find in other works of entertainment. In reality, people don’t achieve self-actualization, reach the apex of their character, and continue living their lives while breezing through issues with the lessons they’ve learned. Life is a constant struggle with oneself and the world. This reality is appropriately captured as the four tanuki brothers flounder through their days. Trying to understand what their father’s legacy means for them.

image

The setting of Kyoto is just as much of a character as the rest of the cast. Every episode tours the city’s many scenic vistas and synergizes with the driving emotion of the characters’ interactions. Ultimately, connecting the themes of outer-perception and inner-perception that the brothers explore while trying to learn about the different views and impacts the other two races have on their way of life. 

image

Uchoten Kazoku is a marvelous one-of-a-kind anime that delivers on an artistic, thematic, and entertaining level. Its deep commentary on life, love, and family is thoughtfully written and will leave you in equally deep thought. The art alone is the envy of even the most successful shows. And unquestionably, a crowning achievement of modern anime.

Do not have the benefits of workers’ compensation
Do not have the privilege of collective bargaining
Are exploited and trapped in cycle of poverty. 

Labor is a disability rights civil issue.”
