[20:31] <starcat> a broken image.
[20:31] <starcat> oh, not broken, nvm
[20:31] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Shuddup
[20:31] <starcat> but neesan if no one points out your flaws how will you get more perfect~
[20:31] <@Darkness Kusanagi> If I get more perfect I'll be blinding, neechan~
[20:32] <starcat> you already are~
[20:32] <starcat> (I like to blind people. with SCIENCE.)
[20:32] <starcat> (LIBRARY SCIENCE.)
[20:32] <@Darkness Kusanagi> So wait what were we doing here again.
[20:32] <starcat> We're gonna watch Mulan.
[20:32] <@Darkness Kusanagi> OH YA.
[20:32] <starcat> I need to grab my DVD though. <_<
[20:32] <starcat> yes, folks, LEGAL MEANS whut.
[20:33] <@Darkness Kusanagi> While neechan gets her DVD I'll give a bit of backstory!
[20:33] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Mulan is a 1998 Disney movie based off the legend of Hua Mulan, and one of the first action movies Disney ever made!
[20:34] <@Darkness Kusanagi> From the Wiki: Mulan originally began as a short, straight-to-video film titled "China Doll" about an oppressed and miserable Chinese girl who is whisked away by a British Prince Charming to happiness in the West. Then Disney consultant and children's book writer Robert San Souci suggested making a movie of the Chinese poem, "The Song of Fa Mu Lan" and Disney combined the two separate projects.
[20:35] <@Darkness Kusanagi> The story is basically a girl going "why can't I join the army" and puffing her cheeks angrily and crossdressing and joining the army with her wacky sidekicks!
[20:36] <starcat> wooo!
[20:36] <starcat> /mw watches mulan ii preview
[20:36] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Actually the story of Hua Mulan is really good.
[20:37] <@Darkness Kusanagi> And I honestly like this movie.
[20:37] <@Darkness Kusanagi> it's like the only Disney movie I like.
[20:37] <starcat> So do I.
[20:38] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (I did like Lion King. Then I watched Kimba the White Lion and that fell apart)
[20:38] <starcat> I like lots of Disney movies. :3
[20:38] <starcat> Beauty and the Beast X3
[20:38] <starcat> Little Mermaid is good.
[20:38] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I need some action in my movies!
[20:38] <starcat> Pocahontas I adored when I was six and watched it every day.
[20:38] <starcat> (my mom hates it)
[20:38] <starcat> yes well you're the martial artist I'm the librarian who wants to be a princess!
[20:39] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Well that plays well together for us.
[20:39] <@Darkness Kusanagi> s'why this is 2 Girls 1 Movie!
[20:40] <starcat> I guess!
[20:40] <starcat> I don't get it but I'm sure someone does!
[20:40] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Who cares!
[20:40] <@Darkness Kusanagi> You ready, neechan?
[20:40] <starcat> no, theres a ton of previews on this DVD :/
[20:41] <@Darkness Kusanagi> anything good?
[20:41] <starcat> Mulan II, Mary Poppins, random crap
[20:41] <starcat> Bambi
[20:42] <starcat> Does your file start with the Disney castle studio splash thing?
[20:42] <starcat> or where does it start so I can queue it up
[20:42] <@Darkness Kusanagi> yesu
[20:42] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (I torrented, I'm illegal!)
[20:42] <starcat> (meh we're half-legal, that's all good)
[20:43] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (you heard it here folks neechan is legal)
[20:43] <starcat> Right, I'm ready!
[20:43] <starcat> (this makes you not legal, neesan)
[20:43] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (surprises all around tonight!)
[20:43] <starcat> (are you a loli or are we just not in canada~)
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (who knows~)
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Let's count down!
[20:44] <starcat> right back to the crossdressing warrior movie!
[20:44] <starcat> with songs!
[20:44] <starcat> Neesan, I think it's your turn!
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I love the Mulan songs and I may end up singing along!
[20:44] <starcat> May?
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> /okay!
[20:44] <starcat> I will unless my voice gives out.
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> okay will
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> 3!
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> 2!
[20:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> 1~!
[20:45] <@Darkness Kusanagi> GO~!
[20:45] <starcat> woo! Oh man I forgot about the opening.
[20:45] <@Darkness Kusanagi> S'really pretty
[20:45] <starcat> Traditional Chinese-y music in the background, pretty calligraphy.
[20:45] <starcat> I think calligraphy would be something cool to learn.
[20:46] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Great Wall of China!
[20:46] <starcat> Great Wall!
[20:46] <starcat> Raawr guards.
[20:46] <@Darkness Kusanagi> No no just Guard.
[20:46] <starcat> Hawkfalcon thingy steals the guy's helmet.
[20:46] <starcat> well there ARE more guards, we're just only looking at one!
[20:46] <@Darkness Kusanagi> THE HUNS ARE ATTACKING AAAAAAAAA
[20:46] <starcat> and now Huns
[20:46] <starcat> but guard makes it t o the signal fire :O
[20:47] <starcat> and the Villain shows up remarkably early for a Disney film.'
[20:47] <starcat> Before the hero!
[20:47] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I love their overly American voices.
[20:47] <starcat> I never had this movie on VHS :/
[20:47] <starcat> I always regretted that :/
[20:47] <starcat> but then I got it on DVD so! :D
[20:48] <starcat> now emperor is talking, stuff blah blah blah
[20:48] <starcat> military strategy -- a bowl of rice!
[20:48] <@Darkness Kusanagi> and so we meet Mulan. Eating rice. Painting on herself.
[20:48] <starcat> Cheating. :|
[20:48] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Wearing surprisingly modern clothing.
[20:48] <starcat> And we meet the token animal that was marketed and only shows up now.
[20:48] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Mulan's dog!
[20:49] <@Darkness Kusanagi> We never see it again.
[20:49] <starcat> Nope.
[20:49] <starcat> And dad!
[20:49] <starcat> He's a cripple.
[20:49] <starcat> :(
[20:49] <starcat> Where did she pull the spare teacup from
[20:49] <@Darkness Kusanagi> She's magic AND awesome!
[20:50] <@Darkness Kusanagi> But yes she goes to meet with the Matchmaker.
[20:50] <starcat> ahh the Matchmaker.
[20:50] <starcat> "How lucky can they be? They're dead."
[20:50] <starcat> Granny rocks.
[20:50] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Neechan it's the cricket! :O
[20:50] <starcat> CRICKET X3
[20:50] <starcat> I think he's just called Cricky or something.
[20:50] <starcat> But he's cute. x3
[20:51] <@Darkness Kusanagi> The horse has the thinnest legs ever
[20:51] <starcat> I had a Happy Meal toy of it that would jump when you wound it up :O
[20:51] <@Darkness Kusanagi> STRIPPING
[20:51] <starcat> holy crap you're right
[20:52] <starcat> and Mulan is all like "nah not really doing the girly thing" by playing
[20:52] <starcat> whatever that game is that's like chess but not.
[20:52] <@Darkness Kusanagi> omapple!
[20:53] <starcat> You must be ahead of me :<
[20:53] <starcat> but I can skip ahead a little and miss nothing.
[20:53] <starcat> Add a cricket, just for luck ♫
[20:53] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Now Mulan has a totally different singing voice from her speaking voice. Two different voice actors.
[20:53] <starcat> (and even you can't blow it!)
[20:53] <starcat> Really?
[20:53] <starcat> I never knew that.
[20:53] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Yup.
[20:53] <@Darkness Kusanagi> THE MATCHMAKER SCARES ME
[20:54] <starcat> who DOESN'T she scare.
[20:54] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Reflect before you snack-- act!
[20:55] <starcat> Now. Pour the yea.
[20:55] <starcat> *tea
[20:55] <starcat> she's crawling on the table
[20:56] <starcat> Stupid cricket.
[20:56] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Poor Mulan got kicked out of the Matchmaker's house D:
[20:56] <@Darkness Kusanagi> For setting her ass on fire.
[20:56] <@Darkness Kusanagi> ... I would have done it.
[20:56] <starcat> Yes, neesan, but that's just how you are.
[20:57] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me~
[20:57] <starcat> And now we get the vaguely-emo yet oddly stirring second song
[20:57] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I love this song.
[20:57] <starcat> Me too. :D
[20:58] <@Darkness Kusanagi> And now for a heart-to-heart with her father.
[20:58] <starcat> Yup.
[20:58] <starcat> Flower metaphor!
[20:58] <starcat> And it's not about sex!
[20:58] <starcat> Though it could be a püberty metaphor.
[20:58] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Actually I'll bring up another neat point about the flowers later!
[20:58] <starcat> oh?
[20:58] <starcat> why not now
[20:59] <@Darkness Kusanagi> If she hit püberty she would never be able to crossdress.
[20:59] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Spoilers.
[20:59] <@Darkness Kusanagi> When we get to the point I'll bring it up.
[20:59] <starcat> All that's gonna happen is they'll draft Dad and mulan will be all "NOOOO" and then they'll be "Stop being an idiot Mulan"
[20:59] <starcat> Ahh okay.
[20:59] <starcat> Cripple!dad gives mom his cane and walks forward proudly!
[20:59] <starcat> Mulan is an only child.
[20:59] <@Darkness Kusanagi> he is only secret!cripple.
[21:00] <starcat> What's the name of the weedy little jerk guy
[21:00] <starcat> like, what does he do
[21:00] <starcat> His position is basically a non-evil Jafar.
[21:00] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Uhh.
[21:00] <starcat> Aladdin was a good Disney movie!
[21:00] <@Darkness Kusanagi> he's an adviser of some kind.
[21:00] <starcat> Adviser is good enough.
[21:00] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Aladdin was good then they milked the hell out of it.
[21:00] <starcat> Dad's got a sword!
[21:00] <starcat> hey the third sequel was actually good
[21:01] <starcat> well, the third movie.
[21:01] <starcat> Second sequel.
[21:01] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Awkward silence.
[21:01] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Broken by Mulan!
[21:01] <starcat> While drinking tea and eating rice.
[21:01] <starcat> Why plain rice?
[21:01] <starcat> Are they poor? :(
[21:01] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Plain rice is a symbol of purity.
[21:01] <starcat> Yeah, but they've got NOTHING else.
[21:02] <starcat> Not even on the table other than the tea.
[21:02] <@Darkness Kusanagi> They weren't hungry enough? I dunno.
[21:02] <starcat> this is one of my favorite shots :D
[21:02] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Sad Mulan in rain :<
[21:02] <starcat> the one in the rain on the dragon
[21:02] <starcat> Her hair got longer.
[21:02] <starcat> (Not for long lol)
[21:02] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Yay epic motivational music!
[21:02] <starcat> EPIC.
[21:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> She sneaks in, grabs the parchment from her father, cuts her hair!
[21:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> takes his armor!
[21:03] <starcat> with a SWORD no less.
[21:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Takes the horse!
[21:03] <starcat> Also with that armor anyone could crossdress.
[21:03] <starcat> Dolly Parton could pass as a man.
[21:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> PSYCHIC GRANDMA
[21:04] <starcat> YEP
[21:04] <@Darkness Kusanagi> This is basically the story of Hua Mulan. Right here.
[21:04] <starcat> "She could be killed!" "If I reveal her, she will be."
[21:04] <starcat> Why is it spelt Hua if it's pronounced Fa.
[21:04] <starcat> Seriously, wtf, Chinese romanization.
[21:04] <starcat> oh, the spirits!
[21:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> No no they changed the name.
[21:05] <starcat> And Mushu, our lovable mascot for the movie.
[21:05] <starcat> Ohhh.
[21:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> This one is Fa Mulan. a parody.
[21:05] <starcat> "parody"
[21:05] <starcat> what
[21:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> But it's based off Hua Mulan.
[21:05] <starcat> (also there are tonso f other Chinese things that are pronounced nothing like how they're spelt)
[21:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Well you know what I mean!
[21:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I mean I'm sure Hua didn't have a tiny dragon and a cricket!
[21:05] <starcat> kinda like calling her Belle instead of Beauty
[21:06] <starcat> We can't ALL be acupuncturists!
[21:06] <starcat> Oh man I totally remember asking "what's a crossdresser" several times when I was little.
[21:06] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Your great granddaughter had to be a CROSSDRESSER~!
[21:06] <starcat> GREAT STONE DRAGON
[21:07] <starcat> I'm actually like mentally ahead.
[21:07] <starcat> I know what's coming next.
[21:07] <starcat> off goes the ear
[21:07] <starcat> (I keep saying things before they actually happen)
[21:07] <starcat> (I should stop)
[21:07] <@Darkness Kusanagi> and so the great stone dragon is dead.
[21:08] <starcat> Yeah I'm gonna go put some water on for ramen, this part's boring
[21:08] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I'll be here if anything remotely interesting happens
[21:08] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "All because Ms. Man decided to take her little drag-show on the road."
[21:09] <starcat> Perfect timing. Get back just as we transition to the burning village!
[21:09] <starcat> Much more interesting than Mushu recruiting the cricket.
[21:09] <starcat> And pretending to be the Great Stone Dragon.
[21:09] <starcat> (it's good the first few times after a while it's just meh)
[21:09] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Ah Eddie Murphy, you make the best comic relief.
[21:10] <starcat> This guy is actually quite possibly the smartest and most efficient of all Disney villains.
[21:10] <starcat> He actually *leads an army*
[21:11] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "How many men does it take to send a message" "one"
[21:11] <starcat> "How many men does it take to deliver a message?" "One."
[21:11] <starcat> they're very manly, and TOUGH!
[21:11] <@Darkness Kusanagi> The HORSE is rolling around laughing.
[21:11] <starcat> *Mulan fumbles sword D:
[21:11] <starcat> roflmao
[21:11] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "Let me hear you say Yaaaaaaaa~!" "AAAAAAAAAAAH!!"
[21:11] <starcat> Eddie Murphy dragon is all televangelisty.
[21:12] <starcat> I want to know why the shadow has transparent eyes and jaw
[21:12] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "The powerful, the pleasurable~!"
[21:12] <starcat> I'm travel-sized for your convenience!
[21:12] <starcat> Why does that send my mind to dirty battery-operated places. D:
[21:12] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "My eyes can see straiiiiiiiiight through your armor" *SMACK*
[21:13] <starcat> I'm just nervous. I've never done this before.
[21:13] <starcat> The OVERTONES.
[21:13] <starcat> Disney is the master of those.
[21:13] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Mmhm!
[21:13] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "They're disgusting!" "They're men"
[21:13] <starcat> Mulan is like O_O
[21:13] <starcat> poor sheltered Mulan has no idea how men act.
[21:14] <@Darkness Kusanagi> \relax and chant with me~
[21:14] <starcat> and Mushu is being a jerk :(
[21:14] <starcat> X3
[21:14] <starcat> He's totally my favorite.
[21:14] <starcat> the big guy. Chin Pao?
[21:14] <starcat> I think that's his name.
[21:14] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I think so!
[21:14] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Most of the guys are made to be jerks then you get to like them later.
[21:15] <starcat> Skinnyguy is Ling, short guy is...something.
[21:15] <starcat> Yes.
[21:15] <starcat> (though they're almost all somewhat misogynistic)
[21:15] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Ah yes, the captain!
[21:15] <@Darkness Kusanagi> He goes around shirtless for a while.
[21:15] <starcat> oh. Magistrate. I think that's the skinnyguy's title.
[21:15] <starcat> ...mmmm shirtless captain.
[21:15] <@Darkness Kusanagi> It's not as sexy as it sounds.
[21:15] * starcat waggles her eyebrows so hard.
[21:15] <starcat> Dude, it's totally sexy.
[21:16] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Li Shang.

[21:17] <starcat> Actually I can't think of any song here that I don't like
[21:17] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Ping: vase.
[21:18] <starcat> ming ping?
[21:18] <@Darkness Kusanagi> her surname means flower.
[21:18] <starcat> LOL.
[21:18] <starcat> Random bacon in 3
[21:18] <starcat> 2
[21:18] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "Flowerpot" is a term for eye-candy and decorative things in Chinese culture.
[21:19] <starcat> okay so my counting sucks but hey
[21:19] <starcat> I think my bunny slippers just ran for cover!
[21:19] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "My little baby off to destroy people T_T"

[21:20] <@Darkness Kusanagi> So shirtless!captain goes to train!
[21:20] <starcat> Yao has HUGE hands.
[21:21] <@Darkness Kusanagi> He fires an arrow at the top of a pole and tells the troupes to climb up and get it.
[21:21] <@Darkness Kusanagi> While wearing weights.
[21:21] <starcat> troops

[21:23] <@Darkness Kusanagi> This is basically a musical montage. With lots of Musical.
[21:23] <@Darkness Kusanagi> If I said yes I'd scare EVERYONE.
[21:23] <starcat> mysterious as the dark side of the mooon~!
[21:23] <starcat> But CAN you?
[21:23] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I've done it before I dunno if I still can.
[21:24] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I was young and crazy.
[21:24] <starcat> so Mulan's told she's too weak and to go home
[21:24] <starcat> (in the song of course)
[21:24] <starcat> and she's like "screw that Imma get that arrow"
[21:24] <starcat> And now she's magically the top of the class!
[21:25] * starcat adds deforestation to the list of villain's crimes :|
[21:26] <starcat> eww notwashingsocks.

[21:29] <starcat> neeesaaan did your internet die o_O
[21:29] <starcat> I'm going to assume yes.
[21:30] <starcat> Plotstuff: Magistrate thinks the troops are useless and is going to tell the Emperor that.
[21:30] <starcat> Mushu's like "hell naw I didn't work that hard for this"
[21:31] <starcat> So now they use Crickee to forge a letter and they ride a panda with a stuffed suit of armor to take it to the Magistrate.
[21:31] <starcat> And so they move to the front and then sing about wanting girls worth fighting for!
[21:31] <starcat> Mulan feels ♫ aaaawkwaaard~ ♫
[21:32] <starcat> "you can guess what we have missed the most since going off to war ♫"
[21:32] <starcat> What do we want? A girl worth fighting for!
[21:33] <starcat> And they're now way up in the mountains. You can tell because it's snowy!
[21:33] <starcat> then they get to the village and it's completely burned.
[21:33] <starcat> :<
[21:34] <@Darkness Kusanagi> And of course my internet f[BLEEP]ked out on me so!
[21:34] <starcat> this part always makes me sad because there's a little girl's doll in the snow :/

[21:35] <@Darkness Kusanagi> everyone is like D:
[21:35] <starcat> no
[21:35] <starcat> captain is like :(
[21:35] <starcat> Mulan is like :< sympathy
[21:35] <starcat> (she's totally got a crush on captain)
[21:35] <@Darkness Kusanagi> well captain is more like ._. really
[21:35] <starcat> "We're the only hope for the Emperor now."
[21:36] <@Darkness Kusanagi> looking at him now.
[21:36] <starcat> Yeah.
[21:36] <starcat> You're right.
[21:36] <@Darkness Kusanagi> KABOOM THEIR CANNONS EXPLODE
[21:36] <starcat> NOES CAPTAIN GOT SHOT
[21:36] <starcat> with an arror
[21:37] <starcat> and damn he PULLS IT OUT
[21:37] <starcat> Cannonwagon gets shot with flaming arrow D:
[21:37] <starcat> escape is Dramatic
[21:37] <@Darkness Kusanagi> s'a very dramatic moment.
[21:37] <starcat> EPIC WAR MUSIC
[21:37] <starcat> magistrate is hiding under a rock like he SHOULD be >:[
[21:38] <starcat> jerk D:<
[21:38] <@Darkness Kusanagi> There's like 12 of them against an army!
[21:38] <starcat> so then silence
[21:38] <starcat> nah there's 30 of them easy.
[21:38] <starcat> Smoke clears: big bad is on his horse at the top of the ridge.
[21:38] <starcat> And the army lines up along it
[21:38] <starcat> It's f[BLEEP]king BADASS this scene >:D
[21:38] <starcat> CHARGE
[21:38] <starcat> Shan Yu, that's his name.
[21:39] <@Darkness Kusanagi> and this is the most epic tactic ever.
[21:39] <starcat> Mulan gets a stroke of tactical genius, takes last cannon!
[21:39] <@Darkness Kusanagi> interesting artistic note here:
[21:40] <@Darkness Kusanagi> the Chinese army's horses are depicted as thin and swift, while the Hun's horses are thicker, stalky, more brutish.
[21:40] <starcat> as the ENTIRE HUN ARMY is charging towards them
[21:40] <starcat> Noes she lost her lighter D:
[21:40] <starcat> so she uses the dragon!
[21:40] <starcat> and she fires at the MOUNTAIN nearby and causes an AVALANCHE.
[21:40] <starcat> BEAT THAT HUNS >:D
[21:41] <starcat> And then they hide behind rocks and stuff and Mushu sleds down on a shield and things are just cool.
[21:41] <starcat> Shan Yu is like 50 feet away
[21:41] <starcat> (that one was lagged)
[21:41] <@Darkness Kusanagi> And for the record no matter what army they wouldn't be able to haul a horse up from a cliff.
[21:42] <@Darkness Kusanagi> INVISIBLE INJURY
[21:42] <starcat> :|
[21:42] <starcat> Dammit I'm behind again D:<
[21:42] * @Darkness Kusanagi pauses.
[21:42] * starcat sets it on higher speed
[21:42] <starcat> don't
[21:42] <starcat> go
[21:43] <starcat> I can set it to play at like 1.4 speed
[21:43] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "You have BREASTS? Now I can't respect you!"
[21:43] <starcat> then they get a random doctor from nowhere O_o
[21:43] <starcat> who's like "lol woman"
[21:43] <starcat> She's like an A-cup at most even.
[21:44] <starcat> and now it';s like "YOU MUST DIE" and mulan is like "><"
[21:44] <starcat> but since she saved the captain's life he spares hers.
[21:44] <starcat> And they leave her naked. On a snowy mountain.
[21:44] <@Darkness Kusanagi> because they're cool like that.
[21:44] <starcat> Well, with her horse and some food, but :/
[21:45] <starcat> omg it's a gyoza
[21:45] <starcat> potsticker, mandu
[21:45] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I want gyoza now D:
[21:45] <starcat> I do too D:
[21:45] <starcat> all I have is ramen
[21:45] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I just have tea D:
[21:45] <starcat> aww. Mulan has the emos. She's all "T_T I failed."
[21:45] <@Darkness Kusanagi> this part gets to me man.
[21:45] <@Darkness Kusanagi> it always has
[21:45] <starcat> Mushu comes out of the guiltcloset.
[21:46] <starcat> yeah :<
[21:46] <starcat> mulan is giving up. :<
[21:46] <@Darkness Kusanagi> It's a combo of "I'm different but it doesn't mean I'm bad" and "Just because I'm not supposed to do it doesn't mean I can't do it."
[21:47] <starcat> and OH SNAP THE BIG BAD ISN't DEAD
[21:47] <starcat> He yells and Mulan is like "OHSHI WHAT"
[21:47] <@Darkness Kusanagi> OF COURSE HE ISN'T THERE'S STILL MOVIE LEFT
[21:47] <starcat> So now the huns have been cut like staph bacteria so only the strongest ones are left!
[21:47] <starcat> And Mulan is all "WE'RE GOING TO SAVE THE EMPEROR"
[21:48] <starcat> there's a parade for the heroes of China, aka Our Friends The Troops
[21:48] <starcat> who are sad, because Mulan is not with them. :(
[21:48] <@Darkness Kusanagi> and Mulan races in to tell them!
[21:48] <starcat> (how did she know how to get to the imperial city? NO ONE KNOWS)
[21:49] <starcat> And the captain's like ":/ you lied. I can't trust you."
[21:49] <@Darkness Kusanagi> the captain's just pissed that he got saved by a girl.
[21:49] <starcat> Captain is kind of a jerk.
[21:49] <@Darkness Kusanagi> The visuals are so nice o_o
[21:49] <starcat> The Emperor does some generic Chinese-sounding stuff.
[21:49] <starcat> No one wants to listen to a girl. :(
[21:50] <starcat> And yes. AWESOME visuals.
[21:50] <starcat> The art in this movie is so cool.
[21:50] <@Darkness Kusanagi> It's simple yet perfect for the movie.
[21:50] <starcat> Yep.
[21:50] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "Hey you're a girl again remember"
[21:50] <starcat> Captain presents the emperor with the sword when ALL OF A SUDDEN THE BIG BAD'S BIRD STEALS IT AND TAKES IT TO HINM ON THE ROOF
[21:50] <starcat> And then the Huns break out of the dragon behind the troops!!
[21:51] <starcat> And the Emperor gets kidnapped!
[21:51] <@Darkness Kusanagi> MULAN SAVE HIM
[21:51] <starcat> And Mulan's like "I HAVE AN IDEA" and they all follow her.
[21:51] <starcat> and MOER CROSSDRESSING.
[21:51] <@Darkness Kusanagi> THE GUYS CANNOT DO ANYTHING RIGHT
[21:51] <@Darkness Kusanagi> THEY ONLY KNOW BRUTE FORCE
[21:51] <starcat> And "BE A MAN" plays in the background.
[21:51] <starcat> Hell yes.
[21:51] <starcat> also they ARE brutes.
[21:52] <@Darkness Kusanagi> This movie teaches: when in doubt, crossdress.
[21:52] * starcat is now known as starman
[21:52] * starman binds chest, puts on boyclothes
[21:52] <starman> hmm this isn't right
[21:52] * @Darkness Kusanagi binds chest, puts on boyclothes and armor.
[21:53] * @Darkness Kusanagi ties hair up and put it in hat.
[21:53] <starman> I need a better name.
[21:53] * starman is now known as starcat
[21:53] <starcat> meh whatever
[21:53] <starcat> I'm a man now!
[21:54] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Mysterious as the dark side of the moon and such?
[21:54] <starcat> They mount a rescue, Mulan sacrifices her own escape to potentially save the Captain
[21:54] <starcat> I am totally as mysterious as the dark side of the moon.
[21:54] <starcat> And as swift as a raging fire.
[21:54] <starcat> Powerful as a great typhoon.
[21:54] <@Darkness Kusanagi> coursing river
[21:54] <starcat> right right wahtever
[21:54] <starcat> I can't do it unless I sing it :/
[21:54] <starcat> and I can't sing it I'm watching o_o
[21:54] <@Darkness Kusanagi> but it's MANLY to sing!
[21:54] <starcat> it IS manly to sing.
[21:55] <starcat> You weren't here when the Girl Worth Fighting For song was on :(
[21:55] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I heard it though!
[21:55] <@Darkness Kusanagi> s'another good song X3
[21:55] <starcat> Yes, but you couldn't comment!
[21:55] <starcat> yes X3
[21:55] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I would have had the best comments.
[21:55] <starcat> (Beef, pork, chicken~)
[21:55] <@Darkness Kusanagi> ah well.
[21:55] <@Darkness Kusanagi> BATDRAGON
[21:55] <starcat> We could go back and watch it.
[21:55] <starcat> Mulan STEALS HIS SWORD so badass
[21:55] <@Darkness Kusanagi> at the end we'll rewind!
[21:56] <starcat> And she's doing this all while dressed as a girl mind you.
[21:56] <starcat> And he is destroyed ina blaze of glory and fireworks!
[21:56] <starcat> And mulan lands on Captain d'aaawww.
[21:57] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Yes, everyone, we do watch good movies. This is how we stay sane for the bad ones.
[21:57] <starcat> My only problem with this story is that they laud her as a hero
[21:57] <starcat> and then still oppress girls.
[21:57] <starcat> To this day.
[21:57] * starcat shuts up listens to emperor speech
[21:57] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Well it's one of those movies that goes on about how we shouldn't act like we do.
[21:57] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Women, when they put their mind to it, can do anything that men can do.
[21:57] <starcat> Yeah.
[21:58] <starcat> But see, this is an American movie.
[21:58] <starcat> So it's okay.
[21:58] <starcat> 'cause, you know, the military is (mostly) open to both sexes equally
[21:58] <starcat> (there are a very few branches that are still only men but usually for quite good reasons)
[21:58] <starcat> (er, not branches, but sections)
[21:59] <starcat> she hugs the emperor.
[21:59] <starcat> Awww. :D
[21:59] <starcat> Then there's a group hug with our three troops :D
[21:59] <starcat> And Captain's like "Y...You fight good."
[21:59] <@Darkness Kusanagi> it's a heartwarming ending that shows that women are just as good as men!
[21:59] <starcat> He's totally crushing on her now too but it's that awkward kind where neither knows what to do
[21:59] <starcat> yes!
[21:59] <starcat> Back to the flowers!
[22:00] <starcat> The Emperor is like "dude. go after her. You're a moron if you don't."
[22:00] <starcat> so now back to Dad under the blossoming tree.
[22:00] <@Darkness Kusanagi> And that romances don't HAVE to be forced in to movies and concluded easily by the woman fawning over the man and squeeing!
[22:00] <starcat> Mulan comes home with a medal and the sword of Shan Yu.
[22:00] <starcat> No, they don't!
[22:00] <starcat> Mulan just wants to make her dad happy. Aww. :D
[22:01] * @Darkness Kusanagi just smiles.
[22:01] * starcat giggles at Grandma
[22:01] <starcat> aww. :D
[22:01] <starcat> Mulan: "Would you like to stay for dinner?" Granny: "Would you like to stay forever?"
[22:02] starcat grooves~
[22:02] <starcat> Oh the dog DOES show up. Once.
[22:02] <starcat> Credits!
[22:02] <@Darkness Kusanagi> The dog has been chased by chickens for the ENTIRE WAR
[22:03] <starcat> Yes.
[22:03] <starcat> You know I think this is a Backstreet Boys song.
[22:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> True to your heart, you must be true to your heart~!
[22:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> It is.
[22:03] <starcat> Or some other boy band.
[22:03] <starcat> YES.
[22:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> And I hate myself for liking it.
[22:03] <starcat> This is how you know it was made in the 90s.
[22:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> But.
[22:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> It's so good.
[22:03] <starcat> D: Don't hate yourself.
[22:03] <starcat> It's got a great -- oh 98 degrees not BB-- beat and you can dance to it.
[22:03] <@Darkness Kusanagi> oh no wait
[22:04] <@Darkness Kusanagi> not Backstreet Boys.
[22:04] <@Darkness Kusanagi> sorry.
[22:04] <@Darkness Kusanagi> It's a compilation
[22:04] <@Darkness Kusanagi> of a bunch of random people.
[22:04] <starcat> Ehh they were a second-tier Boy Band
[22:04] <starcat> Also, fun lyrics.
[22:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> "True to Your Heart (Single)" — 98º, Stevie Wonder
[22:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> 9_9
[22:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> 98 degrees.
[22:05] <@Darkness Kusanagi> second-tier boy band
[22:05] <starcat> and now the "official" single edition of the reflection song
[22:05] <starcat> but -- it kinda loses the feeling.
[22:06] <starcat> too much vocal trilling and random singer crap added on.
[22:06] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Isn't this the one by Christina Aguilera
[22:06] <starcat> I don't know, I'll check.
[22:06] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I think it is.
[22:06] <starcat> I thought it was someone else.
[22:06] <starcat> Mariah Carey?
[22:06] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Someone no one cares about anymore.
[22:07] <starcat> Nope, Crhistina Agulera
[22:07] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I was right! :O
[22:07] <starcat> I'm not spelling right because I am sick
[22:07] <starcat> good for you! :D
[22:07] <starcat> I think.
[22:07] <starcat> Is knowing that Christina Aguilera spoiled a good song a nice thing?
[22:07] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Neechan one of the days we have to record one of these and just play our ramblings over the movie.
[22:07] <starcat> Yes.
[22:08] <starcat> I want to do something where we can sing <_<
[22:08] <@Darkness Kusanagi> MULAN 2
[22:08] <starcat> I don't know the songs D:
[22:08] <starcat> I've only seen it once or twice :<
[22:08] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I know one.
[22:08] <starcat> "Your patience and dedication bring honor to us all."
[22:08] <@Darkness Kusanagi> We'll find something we can use to make idiots out of ourselves.
[22:08] <starcat> Find them on Youtube and I will learn them :3
[22:09] <starcat> So! Want to rewind to Girl Worth Fighting For?
[22:09] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Yes!
[22:09] <starcat> (we COULD always record just that song)
[22:09] <starcat> (special bonus track for intermission!)
[22:09] <starcat> I like the DVD menu, it's got calligraphy.
[22:09] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (we COULD but it would have to be a few days later than this!)
[22:10] <starcat> (Why?)
[22:10] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (to get it up somewhere to show it)
[22:10] <starcat> right, it starts at 47:30 by my clock
[22:10] <starcat> (Why not just link to an mp3 file)
[22:10] <@Darkness Kusanagi> (very very true)
[22:10] <starcat> er
[22:11] <starcat> Well I dunno get to the "Pack your bags, Crickee" line and then we'll go?
[22:11] <starcat> Unless you DO want to record it!
[22:11] <@Darkness Kusanagi> we could do both?
[22:11] <starcat> watch it twice?
[22:12] <@Darkness Kusanagi> one in text than us making idiots out of ourselves, why not!
[22:12] <starcat> Woo!
[22:12] <starcat> All right now for the most Mulan-awkward part since the bath scene!
[22:12] <starcat> I'll count
[22:12] <@Darkness Kusanagi> woo!
[22:13] <starcat> 3!
[22:13] <starcat> 2!
[22:13] <starcat> 1!
[22:14] <@Darkness Kusanagi> I love these songs~
[22:15] <starcat> How bout a girl who's got a brain, who always speaks her mind?
[22:15] <starcat> :(
[22:15] <starcat> And a "your mom" jab.
[22:15] <@Darkness Kusanagi> They're guys, why would you expect them to want a girl who can think.
[22:15] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Men just don't understand women~!
[22:16] <starcat> The y problem with this song is that then it just stops.
[22:16] <starcat> With depression. D:
[22:16] <@Darkness Kusanagi> ya D:
[22:16] <starcat> And no, they don't~
[22:16] <@Darkness Kusanagi> neechan should we just do a bunch of the songs from this
[22:16] <@Darkness Kusanagi> we both like them and know them!

[22:17] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Hells yes.
[22:18] <starcat> oh I'm sorry "I'll Make A Man Out of You"

[22:19] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Be a Man!
[22:19] <starcat> Practice hard >:3
[22:21] <@Darkness Kusanagi> Well I did end up singing it at work once so!
[22:21] <starcat> hey I wonder if I have karaoke on my dvd somewhere
[22:21] <starcat> You work at a dojo it's totally applicable!
[22:21] <starcat> They don't write songs about libraries.
[22:21] <starcat> Wait, yes they do.
[22:21] <starcat> They're just horribly inappropriate.
[22:21] <@Darkness Kusanagi> XD
