Cats Don’t Dance (1997)

An allegory for racial discrimination and lack of representation in media, Cats Don’t Dance is an underrated cartoon musical made by Warner Brothers. The story is about a young, poor, naive cat named Danny who moves to Hollywood to fulfill his dream of becoming a star, only to realize that animals aren’t given the same treatment as humans are, and his idol Darla Dimple isn’t what she seems. Filled with innocent humour, supreme colouring, and stunning musical numbers, Cats Don’t Dance unfortunately premiered at the same time as Hercules, forever making it an underappreciated movie.

Unfortunately, this is the fullscreen version. The widescreen version is out of print and hard to find.

Today is a horrible day.
 Monday 4/21/2014, I was suspended from my very new job as a full time infant teacher after finding out that my physical was declared failed. Why was it failed? The picture above shows you. I was failed on my work physical for self harm scars that occured about 7-10 years ago when I was going through major abuse, loss, and other related events with my family.
I am NOT looking for pity, I am looking for help. This puts me out of a job, this puts me out of money and like any college student trying to make it on their own, I can’t be in this situation. I have bills to pay and I have to support myself, which I can’t do presently because of a faulty failed physical.
The doctor stated to me clearly he didn’t think I was capable of working with children or that should be working with children with these scars on my arms. He then failed my physical. I am attending college currently specifically for this career in Childcare. I am hurt, disgusted, and angry by all of this. This has reopened wounds and memories I’ve had tucked away for years and on top of it all, the career I’ve been striving for and will CONTINUE to strive for has been snatched away from me on bullshit terms.
If ANYONE, and I’m begging everyone on tumblr right now, if anyone can help me then please PRIVATE MESSAGE me. I am looking for legal advice and need to know what steps I can take. I am looking for ANYTHING to make sure I can secure myself in case I can’t find another full time job before bills become due again and I start getting hungry with only a dollar for food.
If you cannot give me advice or point me in the right direction there is one very important thing you can do for me. Just to give me one last hope and chance.
SIGNAL BOOST THIS. I need to get attention on this before it gets swept under the rug. So please. Reblog. Post to facebook. Post anywhere. Just link it back to my blog.
I need your help. PLEASE.

Heating The Rez by Chase Iron Eyes

Today Lastrealindians is launching “Heating The Rez”, an effort to raise $50,000 to properly heat our homes. We are at a loss that this Northern Plains winter is so dangerously cold, propane prices are so abnormally high, and circumstances are such that because a family could not afford to heat a home one of our Tribal members has passed away, freezing to death on the Standing Rock Nation (North & South Dakota, USA http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/woman-dies-dakotas-propane-heat-home-22379636 ).

That is a test of our humanity. Our hope is to convert 20 homes to renewable heating sources in 2014. Buying more propane, at ridiculous prices is the necessary bandaid now, but we are going to move our people forward to regenerative heating sources. Take a look; share the energy.

(Spread the word and get searching!)
#SafeSearchWrapUp is heavily community driven effort to help make the SafeSearch features on image-search engines such as GoogleImages be free of NSFW content. Every cartoon from “Avatar: The Last Airbender” to “Young Justice” contains fan made pornographic works referred to as Rule-34. Rule-34 is a catch all term detonating porn of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, cartoon or not. However searching up images of any animated series will likely turn up these images, even on the first few pages.
As the teen and adult fans of the show, we have to be considerate of the younger target audience. A lot of parents and their children may be looking up images of their favorite characters to print out and put on their wall or such. So lets come together …. no wait. As a community we can make image searching safer for the young ones and their parents. No shutting down or deleting things from existence, simply keeping it off SafeSearch as a courtesy for others.

The Game Plan:
Everyone should pick at least one search term they think would commonly used by kids and their parents, such as “My little pony twilight sparkle”. You can search at your leisure through a few pages… say 5-10 at least? However, on the 7th and 20th of every month we can all do it in large droves. If the call is sent out all at the same time, like a tradition then more people are likely to participate. Additionally, if Google or Bing gets a lot of flags for the same image from a lot of people- we can assume they will be more likely to remove it.
What to look for? Gore, blood, penises, vaginas, and perhaps lingerie. Just use your best judgement. Honestly if its something you wouldn’t look at while at work or show to a kid, then its probably not something we want showing up in a safe-search! If you think it should be done out of safe search as well, then thats your call to make.

How To Flag:
On Google, simply enlarge an image and go to Send Feedback circled here and enter comment notifying them the image is “not suitable for children” or something along those lines:

On Bing, simply click the flag image in the lower left corner when you hover over an image. Then check the “Adult” checkbox. Quick and easy! Lets do this!Also see #SafeSearchWrapUp’s sister projects:http://broniesagainstbullshit.tumblr.com/CampaignsNote: The original date was going to be the 15th of every month, however I decided to do it en masse twice a month instead. 

I am so down for that you don’t even understand

Hey tumblr… while we’re all jumping on social justice causes, how about we take time time to address another major concern: the captive wildlife crisis.

You realize that the exotic pet trade is a major reason why there are only several thousand tigers left in the wild, yes? You realize that supporting the exotic wildlife trade is basically the same as supporting poaching, yes?

No one… NO ONE should keep an exotic animal as a pet. I don’t care how cuddly or cool they seem. They have been taken from their natural habitat, bred, and abused for profit and amusement. They are not domesticated like dogs and house cats and are therefore unreliable. Their native populations are dwindling to nothing in a shockingly short time (in the last hundred years).

The captive wildlife crisis is perpetuating the extinction of these species.

More often than not, captive wildlife live in squalor and are fed diets that allow their health to deteriorate. They are inbred. They are not well cared for. I don’t care how noble your intentions. They develop teeth, intestinal, eye, and leg issues. Their life span is cut in half.

And it’s posts like this that hype and glamorize something that is causing severe and permanent harm to the animals that you claim to love so much.

For those who don’t understand the gravity of the situation, I highly suggest you watch The Elephant in the Living Room. Also, check out this story about Zanesville, OH that details what happens when things go wrong with owning exotic animals.

Y’all jumped on the bandwagon to support orcas after Blackfish… it’s time to see the bigger picture.

If there’s one thing i’m against, (and I’m not against much,) it’s the captivity of exotic animals: You want a tiger, instead of a dog, because you just want a ‘wild animal’ instead of an animal that has been developed over millennia as a perfect companion animal.

As grey an area as this is, having any animal that isn’t a dog/cat/rat/etc, rubs me the wrong way - Small monkeys/lemurs, sugar gliders, whatever. Yeah, sugar gliders are cute. That doesn’t mean you need to have one in your pocket.

heads up, though, the tiger in the gifs is not part of that industry. He’s a zoo animal, and has to be cared for while he’s young by staff outside zoo hours.

Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area — all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef. Reblog if this outrageous decision does not represent you. This is a massive disappointment, but we cannot give up hope. Sign up here to make our movement bigger than ever and keep up the fight to ‪#‎SaveTheReef‬: http://www.SaveTheReef.org.au


Please Sign the petition guys. So many creatures will be decreased dramatically or even become endangered if we don’t stop it. Also watch the video. It really gave an insight into what would happen if this went ahead. 

like dugongs. they’re mad important and live on the reef

Hey, so GetUp! is deciding to take legal action against this travesty, and you can donate to their kick starter here

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has caved to the pressure of the mining industry and the Federal Government. The agency charged with "the protection, wise use, understanding and enjoyment of the Great Barrier Reef in perpetuity" has allowed it to be sold out for short-term profits. Late yesterday, they granted a permit to dump five million tonnes of dredge spoil inside the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. This destructive project is now allowed to go-ahead - unless we make a last ditch effort to challenge it in court.
