Thank you! I just sent another email this morning to my supervisor. He doesn’t visit our site much since two of his strongest teachers work there (myself and my female co-teacher), and I guess he feels we don’t need him around. But maybe he’ll do the right thing and come spend some time at our school now that he’s aware there are problems.
I’ve already sent two emails about his behavior, and I’ve personally confronted my co-worker about his habit of obviously favoring our 5th grade female students. My other co-teacher has also had talks with him and sent her own emails. Hopefully we won’t be ignored.
It was pure luck that I got pulled into this job. My supervisor at my teaching job saw an ad for a Tiana lookalike on the local casting call website and urged me to apply. I bet you can look up casting calls in your area as well, or even more specifically, google party/event planning companies and character impersonator businesses in your area and contact them to see if they’re hiring! I know my boss is always on the lookout for more employees!
Today he had tickle wars with a 5th grade girl. Tickle wars. As in, he did it once, saw nothing wrong with running his hands all over a young girl’s body to make her squirm, and so did it again.
He teasingly pulled a girl’s ponytail to get her attention.
He allows all the older elementary girls to call him ‘Mr. Fabulous’ and he has equally ridiculous nicknames for them.
He jokingly took a girl’s journal and held it over his head so that she had to climb on him to reach it.
Are you noticing a pattern? I am. And it’s scaring me.
Doc McStuffins party! We played doctor with our toys. did some dancing and limbo, and did a science experiment!
It’s not the best costume, but I only had a few hours to put it together. The lab coat is real though! I knew my old Chemlab lab coat would come in handy again someday.
Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?
Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.
First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.
Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.
So fuck any noise where people say audiences don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible.
That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.
This was my life when it came out…
This is my standard for diversity casting.
David Gilson is a French Artist. In 2007, over being excited for Disney’s Black Princess, he created a plethora of wonderful artwork in anticipation.
Many of them created during earliest production in which the film was then titled The Frog Princess and the heroine was named Maddy the chambermaid. These works since have been passed around as if they were conceptual artwork during production. In part for being well done and existing a year prior to any real art released to the press and public.
As The Princess and The Frog hops towards five years since theatrical release, it it time to identify these great works of art as they are, fan art.
The right column showcases the beautiful pieces by Disney Artists. David Gilson’s fan artwork is used often when talking about natural hair for Tiana. Lorelay Bové, Sue Nichols, Chris Appelhans, Armand Baltazar and Kevin Gollaher have drawn natural hair in their concept art and unfortunately that aspect did not make it to realization.
David was contracted by Disney Publishing and Disney Consumer Products for Tangled in 2010. Hey, who knows maybe all the attention to his Tiana art landed him the job. We wish him the best in all his artistic endeavors!
so what you’re saying is that what I actually want is a movie helmed by David Gilson
