“Lilo and Stitch” 2002

Deleted Scene

Lilo plays a trick on the tourists.

IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU’D UNDERSTAND

I desperately need to understand

WHY

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY

Was this scene cut from the movie??!!

Fucking christ, do you know what this would have done? What this would have meant to SO MANY people??  The truth of this is devastating. And to think it almost found it’s way into a DISNEY film??

The inclusion of this scene alone would have made it the greatest animated feature the company ever produced. Easily. And if you think that’s hyperbolic clearly you don’t understand.

No, really, if anyone knows why this was cut PLEASE let me know. 

oh man WHY WOULD they cut this, this is so great, holy MOLY

It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped)

Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.

I’ve been seeing this around my dash and think it deserves some more recognition!

This shit is hilarious, too.

NO WAIT SHIT

I GET IT NOW

I GET WHY SHE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING TOURISTS AS A HOBBY

SHE WAS BEING FUCKING SATIRICAL AND OBJECTIFYING

IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A DUMB KID WITH A WEIRD HOBBY IT’S BECAUSE THEY DO THAT TO HER AND HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY LIKE SHE’S SOME KIND OF FUCKING THEME PARK CHARACTER AND SHE WANTS THEM TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS

HOLY FUCKING DICKS DISNEY WHY WOULD YOU CUT THIS

aaaa it makes me sooo angry that they cut this scene ; _ ;

Advice to Premeds: Questions, Questions, Questions (for interview day)

So I have an interview with UAB med school. What sort of questions should I have to ask them? What sort of questions should I be prepared to answer? -lifersway

Congrats on your interview! 

Here and here are lists of practice interview questions I’ve compiled to help you think about your answers. 

As for questions you should ask them:

  • How is the curriculum structured? How much time is lecture vs. PBL/group learning vs. lab time?
  • How much clinical exposure do students get in the pre-clinical (1st and 2nd) years?
  • What are the average Step scores/pass rate for the school?
  • Are the clinical rotations all in the same hospital, in multiple hospitals in the same town, or scattered all over? Is there an option for rural or urban rotations?
  • What research opportunities are available to med students?
  • What volunteer opportunities are available during the school year?
  • What is the school’s success rate in matching people in to the specialty you are interested in? Or what is their match rate in general (vs. number of students that have to scramble)? 
  • Where do most students live? Is housing affordable in the area?
  • How much free time do students have, and what do they do with it (this is a great question if you have a student interviewer)? Do the students hang out outside of school?
  • How are most students there financing school? Are there scholarship options?
  • What makes this school unique? What do they have that others don’t?
  • How do the students relate to faculty? Are they friendly? How available are faculty members for questions or tutorials?
  • Are there MD/MPH or MD/PhD options? How does that curriculum work?
  • How are clinical skills taught? 
  • Are there counseling programs available for medical students? What resources are available to help students struggling with burnout or depression?
  • What clubs or student organizations are available? Are there opportunities to be involved with organizations on the national level?
  • How much vacation time is available? How do most students spend their vacations?

And of course, before you go to your interview, research the school online. Find out what makes that school unique and ask about those programs and resources as well. 

And MORE questions for YOU to ask your interviewers!
