Someone heard rumor that they aren't planning to put any songs in it though D:

But... how will they make a man out me then?

Haha...well, I wasn't even aware that there will be a live-action version of "Mulan" coming out, so I wouldn't know anything about that.

I just have a bunch of SJWs on FB who were freaking out at the possibility of white people being cast at all in that movie. That's the only reason I knew about it.

Black Hamilton cast. Okay.

White Mulan. Not okay.

Oh, I haven't heard about that. All I've heard about casting so far is that they had a casting call and hired a Chinese girl as Mulan.

Edit: Upon googling, I have found an article that says Disney confirms an all-Chinese cast.

Edit Edit: There is no Li Shang!!!! So he really won't be able to make any men.

Neat, now I might not have to hear about the casting choices for the rest of eternity :D

Black Hamilton cast. Okay.

White Mulan. Not okay.


The writer and librettist of Hamilton originally imagined the production as a concept album of rap/hip-hop.  The more he worked on his project, he envisioned colored actors for the voices/roles.  The cast is also actually not entirely black.  It's not meant to be seen as a piece of history but more as a fictional "what if" and exploration of how things may have been if black people were in positions of power at that time in history. 

Mulan -- generally I think people associate the name of "Mulan" with China and the original legend so I don't know if anyone has bothered to reimagine a "what if" scenario with a non-Chinese/Asian Mulan, honestly.  If someone did, what would be the artistic objective?  If someone came up with a compelling reason for why the character would be some other ethnicity, then I would hear it out.  But if the only reason is "just because" then that's simply not interesting.

Even tho my schedule changed so I start teaching at 9 instead of 11, I found out that the office dude is not only amazing at English, but he's also into the same music I'm into. So it took about 40 minutes to eat a third of my lunch but I had someone with in depth knowledge of the Chili Peppers to talk to about best albums, fav time we saw them live, lineup changes ect.

Yeah they were ranting about The Great Wall and were like "watch Disney go and white wash live action Mulan.... I'm boycotting everything in the universe if they do because everyone's racist accept me because I keep a tally of diverse friends I have to make sure that I don't come across as racist/sexist/homophobic/trans-phobic or any other discrimination type!"

And that's how I found out about it.

I will do it. I'll even sigh wistfully as I contemplate things. I can't wait. 2 more hours.

I've been alternating between feeling like shit and feeling just OK.

Today was the first day I got up for work completely unbothered. I slept a full 6.5 hours, I'm not worried about today's lessons, and yesterday I went to the Ghibli pop-up store in the Busna Shinsegae and got two storyboard books -- one for me and one for my sister whose birthday just passed.

Feels.... kinda nice.

CoT: We are going to on a trip right now. Let's go!
Me: What? What are you talking about?
CoT: Teacher's field trip. I forgot to tell you. We go now.
Me: Can I please not go? Can I stay here? Please?

So far no one has come back to get me. Win!!

I figured out how to give myself a sweet avatar after being inspired by Kyndo's new one. Now, I AM Chinpokomon! Or something. It's cute.

I'm going to Fukuoka for the next holiday!  Haven't been to Japan in near 6 years.  Gonna have a few days of shopping and eating, glorious eating.  Flight is booked, lodging is as well. 

Going a bit stir crazy, this is just what I need~
