Fall Out Boy - Immortals (from Disney’s Big Hero 6)

"I’m still comparing your past to my future
It might be your wound but they’re my sutures !”

Guys I just love this song for many reasons. I think this movie is going to give me way too much feels. And for some reasons this song makes me think about the Hamato bros, too. Can’t wait to meet the Hamada siblings. I expect a lot more about sibling relationship and characters development than Frozen. Disney, don’t disappoint me.

February is so so far!!! T_T

 A novel by me

"I read the whole series in less than two days, and now can’t separate the events of individual books" the thrilling sequel

"I’ve read so much fanfic for this series, I can’t remember what really happened in the books" the stunning conclusion

Fingal’s Cave | ©Darby Sawchuk (Staffa island, Scotland)
Staffa is the stuff of legend, an unspoilt and uninhabited island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, best known for its magnificent basalt columns and spectacular sea caves.
The most famous of these is Fingal’s Cave, also known as An Uamh Binn (Cave of Melody). It has a unique, cathedral-like structure and its hexagonal columns are similar to those of the Giant’s Causeway in Ireland.
Fingal’s Cave was immortalized by Mendelssohn in his Hebrides Overture, after he visited the island in 1829, and in a famous painting by the artist J M W Turner.

Okay so I haven’t seen the episode yet and it seems that infamous story-board actually happened.

The only thought I got was: what about the story artist? I remember some fans went to Ciro Nieli to ask him if it was legit, and though he said no (good one…), I remembered he was quite angry about it.

So I just hope the story artist didn”t get in too much troubles or got fired for releasing the boards too early…. Does anyone remember her name/blog?

OK, let’s see if I can explain this well enough to make sense.
Pro-circumstance means that I believe captivity is wrong, and shouldn’t exist, but it does, and freeing all the animals and closing all the zoos/aquariums would do more harm than good for the animals. So I believe we should end breeding programs and just let the animals (for lack of a better word) die out in captivity. And all parks should switch to rescue, rehabilitate and release. And only keep the animals that can’t be released to put on display. I believe that is a compromise for both pros and antis, meaning we’ll still have animals in captivity, but they won’t pointlessly be there. If this doesn’t make sense feel free to send me another ask and I’ll try to explain it better!

What you describe here is pretty much the viewpoint of every logical anti-cap around.

Eh not really. Because I don’t believe in sea pens. I don’t want sea world shut down. And I still go to sea world. So I was shunned from the anti-cap community.

Sea pens are nice and I do believe they are possible for some orcas (Lolita, Kshamenk) but logistically and financially it’s not possible for every single captive orca. The most logical and easiest option is to phase out captivity by ending breeding and letting them die. Again, those of us who actually know what we’re talking about don’t want SeaWorld to shut down. We want it to transform into a rescue/rehab/educational park. Just ask around. That’s a commonly held belief among us.

I agree that going to SeaWorld while saying you’re against captivity is…really weird (and I personally don’t agree with it) but it’s not unheard of. I have a friend who’s anti-cap and goes to SeaWorld to keep tabs on the orcas and she’s still fiercely against captivity.

Overall the things you listed are anti-captivity beliefs that are held by many prominent anti-caps, both here on tumblr and off tumblr.

I’m more in the neutral position, because I don’t believe captivity should exist, but I don’t believe it should be gone completely, because zoos and aquariums do a lot of good. When I was anti-cap I met very few people that didn’t want sea world to shut down and that didn’t want all the whales to be released. I think Lolita is the only one eligible to be released. And I hope she does. But I think Kshamenk should be sent to a better park, I don’t believe that he could survive in the wild.
And I know you said sea pens, not completely released. But I don’t believe that they would just keep the whales in sea pens. I think that sea pens eventually lead to them being released.
I hope this makes sense. I’m sick so my medicine is making me kind of loopy.

So I think you’re saying that you’re only against the captivity of some species (like orcas) but are okay with it if the species in question has shown to fare well in human care? Because those are my feelings exactly, and I know many others share those same sentiments.

And I think you’ve only ever spoken to radical anti-caps who have absolutely no power or relevance in this debate. Naomi Rose isn’t a radical anti-cap, nor is Ken Balcomb or Gabriela Coperthwaite. People who actually have a platform and importance are individuals who posses critical-thinking skills and do not want SeaWorld to shut down or for all whales to be released.

As for sea pens always leading to eventual release…well, no. If whales are put into sea pens people are not going to throw them out into the ocean, lock the gates, and refuse to let them back in. If you read through Lolita’s full release plan it explicitly states that Lolita is more than welcome to stay in the pen for the rest of her life if she chooses to do so. And I see no reason to believe that other sea pen plans would be any different.

Exactly! Like if I could re-write history orcas and other animals that captivity just doesn’t work for, would never be in captivity. But I think it’s possible for some animals to thrive in captivity.
I haven’t seen Lolita’s release plan. Do you have a link for it?

Yep!

Here’s the official release plan: http://www.orcanetwork.org/Main/index.php?categories_file=Retirement
