Now Playing Tracks

hythe:

Each workout lasts the length of the song paired with it. So put on your sports anime playlist and let’s go!

You don’t need ANY equipment for this routine - heck, you can do this in bare feet and pajamas if you want to! It doesn’t take much room, either, so it’s perfect if you’re stuck in a tiny dorm or otherwise small living space.

Try to rest as little as possible between each move to finish when the song does. If you find yourself wanting to quit, don’t give up! Remember, Onoda didn’t quit when he had to pass 100 other racers to reach the rest of Sohoku, and neither did Seirin when they were facing Yosen and it seemed like all was lost. Push yourself to be the very best you can be!

PLAYLIST

Cardio: Yowamushi Pedal - "Be As One"
Strength: Kuroko no Basket - "Fantastic Tune"
Freestyle: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club - "Rage On"
Launch: Haikyuu!! - "Tenchi Gaeshi"

And if you’ve still got energy left and feel like you can keep going, feel free to hit the bonus round:

Cardio Burnout: Shingeki no Kyojin - "Guren no Yumiya"

It’s not sports anime, but you will feel like a total badass who can slay Titans by the time you’re done.

The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here
I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”
Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.
The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.

I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.

i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

that is all i ask.

When I saw the trailer for this when I went to see the Lego movie it was so stunning I knew it was a movie I had to see

Also it looks like it;s by the same person who did El tirge 

which was a great and fun show 

ALSO!!! So far the trailers have be CHOCK FULL of allusions and references to different parts of Mexican culture and history!!

That beautiful lady up there is La Muerte and she’s straight up based off Catrinas which are popular figures and dolls used to represent Dia De Los Muertos.

NOT ONLY THAT but the weird texture on her skin is sugar! Why sugar? Sugar skulls! They’re a common treat found being sold by vendors and made by other families on Dia De Los Muertos.

BUT WOAH DON’T STOP THERE Along with having those two things play into her design she also has cempasúchil (marigold to put it simply) flowers in her hat. Why’s that important?  Those are called flor de los muertos, flower of the dead. They’re used to honor the dead and decorate the altars made by loved ones of the deceased.

And this is just ONE design. All of that thought, care, and attention to detail went into ONE design and that’s only scratching the surface. This isn’t even touching on the adelita twins NOR the town itself.

Like really, this is turning out to be a film crafted out of pure love and respect for the culture and the medium itself and, like OP, all I ask is that you PLEASE go check out this film when it’s released.

Because while you may verbally support it, the studio and the industry itself NEEDS to see money tied in with your voice and the voices of everyone else who has been supporting this film.

And hey! Danny Trejo and Ron Perlman are in it!

So yeah, GO WATCH THE BOOK OF LIFE.

dude I don’t know anybody who isn’t excited for this film.

The plot in this summary isn’t accurate! But that’s okay, that means there’s more reason to go see it!!

LA CATRINA IS SO BEAUTIFUL LOOK AT HER WHEN SHE APPEARS THERE’S ROSE PETAAALLLSSS

XIBALBA IS SO SCARY TOO I’M ALREADY AFRAID OMFG RON PERLMAN THO

you are all fools if you don’t go see this but I am sure all of you will

I’m really looking forward to this movie.

I HAVE ABSOLUTELY GOT TO SEE THIS MOVIE :D

I 10000000000% love this movie and can’t wait for it to come out, for all the reasons listed here and more. So sit down and allow me to tell you a thing. 

I am hispanic. My grandmother and her family grew up in northern Mexico. Its a part of my heritage I never really felt close to growing up. I always leaned towards the Native American side of my family roots and didnt much care to hear about the Hispanic side of things. I blame media for this. Growing up in the late 90’s there was a lot of media representation of Native Americans (especially Disney. Yep you guessed it, my favorite princess was Pocahontas) but not very much Mexican. the only one I can remember was Dora the Explorer and by the time I was introduced to it, I was already grown out of the age group the show was geared towards. 

Fast forward a few years and a tumblr account later and you have a 21-year old me who is starting to get more interested in my family tree. After a few sociology and psychology classes in college and a genealogy nut for a parent, I noticed that there was never really in reason for my younger self to get involved in the Hispanic side of my family history and that bothered me. It bothered me that due to a certain set of circumstances and the timing of which i was born/raised, I had basically been robbed of my roots. I was spiritually and intellectually cut off from something that could have been a great learning experience and could have been a wonderful environment for my then young mind.

Then along comes this movie. I first see the in trailer while waiting for Maleficent to start and then again later that day before HTTYD2. The colors were vibrant and beautiful, the characters seemed really well voiced and fleshed out (no pun intended), and the whole premise of the movie seemed like I had been shown a door through which I could reconnect with a past I never had. And because of this, I have already reforged a relationship with my grandmother with which I had always had trouble relating to and was able to build a bridge with my aunt who has always been uncertain with my choices in life, especially cosplay.

Because of this movie, I have been able to learn more about my heritage.  Because of this movie, I finally have something to bring my aunt and I together. Because of this movie and with the help of my grandmother, I am hoping to truly celebrate Dia de los Muertos in remembrance of my mother.

Because of this movie, I can now proudly say that I am hispanic.

And if one movie can do all that, why wouldn’t you go see it when it comes out?

PS: speaking of cosplay…

And I already have the make-up and sugar skull molds. :)
