A few weeks ago my japanese class did a gift exchange with our penpal class in japan and their box of stuff came in today. All of the gifts had really cute messages on yellow notes. This one was my favorite..

holds back tears*
about 99% sure that this is from the movie Eat Drink Man Woman and it pisses me off that people have no idea what it is, where it’s from, and just immediately equate it with an anime thing.
Because oh look it’s actually traditional CHINESE cooking.
This was Ang Lee’s first real big hit—and it’s an amazing movie and these shots were so hard to film that they had to literally hire FUCKING STUNT CHEFS TO DO THE ACTION SHOTS OK. (warning: he kills a fish and a chicken in these shots).
The first shot is making dumplings in a quick and amazing way which takes YEARS of practice to do.
The next couple of shots are of steamed white chicken which is one of those staple, simple foods in Chinese cuisine that is really REALLY hard to perfect. Like it’s one of those things that sounds simple but is rarely ever perfect.
The next is smoked pork belly and bok choy.
I could go on and on and on but like I’m just really pissed off that people are reblogging this like “OMFG REAL LIFE SPIRITED AWAY.”
Fuck you, it’s Ang Lee’s amazing fucking movie, Eat Drink Man Woman, which is all about sisters and daughters and food and family and basically no, it’s not fucking anime, it’s fucking Chinese culture in a nutshell.
did people immediately see this and think ‘oh, how anime’ fuck you, fuck off this is chinese cuisine
i don’t think you know much about culture at all if you genuinely can’t tell the difference between real chinese food and animated japanese food, congrats kiddo, you’re a fetishistic racist who gels all asian culture together
The OP is black.
being black isn’t a safeguard against being racist to asian cultures???
"Horsemanning, or fake beheading, was a popular way to pose in a photograph in the 1920’s. Sometimes spelled horsemaning, the horsemanning photo fad derives its name from the Headless Horseman, a character from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Just a reminder to women that cellulite isn’t this evil thing that only ‘fat’ people have. Most women, including well known celebrities have cellulite. The term cellulite was started in the 1960’s in a Vogue magazine. Its nothing more than the body storing fat, which practically every person has to some degree. Don’t be ashamed of something that’s normal!
Thank you for this post.
It was recently found that 98% of women have cellulite…which is a little higher than the percentage of women who develop breasts.
Cellulite is more common than breasts—so stop acting like it’s not natural.
98% of women have cellulite because of the shape of our fat cells. The shape of our fat cells is different than men’s, which is why they don’t get cellulite and we do.
I took a photo every 2 minutes over the span of about 2 hours at a 20 second exposure and animated it all together! This 2 second loop was the result!

depression is when you don’t really care about anything
