FfffFFfff

Got some work to do but just feel like cuddling up under blankets and sleeping.
It's almost 3pm too. Huge procrastination strike!


A stunt double in the Last Airbender movie posted a tiiiiiny pic of himself in costume.
EDIT: THIS IS NOT ZHAO'S DESIGN! - it's just that since the stunt double was in another photograph with Aasif Mandvi, one could possibly assume he was his stunt double. Good thing I mentionned previously this was unconfirmed and should be taken with a huge grain of salt...hmmm...salty.
Still, all fire nation hair related observation still holds.

Last Airbender
He seems to have braids.
Now, compared to Shaun Toub (Iroh) who has dreads, one starts to wonder if hairbending is part of the Fire Nation ranking system.
Last Airbender

Or maybe there's a rastafarian movement in the fire nation nobility. Ooooh, let's all wonder what hairstyle Ozai will sport!
Rasta

Ok, enough silly rambling. Time for work.
Beside, with a bit of luck, we'll see more pics next weekend (Sunday, Feb7th) with the Last Airbender Super Bowl add, plus the official trailer coming out the week after.

And then there's Yarnbending, that I (a crocheter) and my knitting friend tend to call our skills...

My kid objects when I urge her along, claiming that I'm doing childbending...

Hairbending sounds amusing!

There has been claim of hairbending in season 2- what with Zuko's hair growing at a very healthy rate.

You are my favourite port for Avatar news (cartoon or otherwise)!

I don't have the ninja-search skills that other people have.
But I can do re-post of whatever news suddenly pop up elsewhere!

I am in love with the rastafarian Fire Nation movement :D
But that is mostly because I think dreads are hot.

I hope their hair doesn't catch on fire though with all the oils! GASP!

Seems like they've learned to control their fire pretty well. Not only for their hair, but they also seem to love wearing big, ample sleeved clothing.
...
I am having huge dreads Ozai images in my head.
(though we did draw almost the whole cast of Avatar with afros once...I wonder if I still have all the post-its lying around somewhere...)

OH MAN AFROS I'd love to see those, haha!

Ozai is Fire Lord because he has the biggest dreads! He has to wear one of those huge knitted caps to contain them all.

And Zuko's Important Haircut after banishment won't be shaving his head but cutting off his dreads and being forced to comb his hair! lol


Ozai: "From this day on you shall be banished! You are not worthy to wear the noble Fire Nation dreads. You will learn respect and THIS COMB WILL BE YOUR TEACHER!!"

Zuko: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"



Zhao with breads/dreads/whatever? ROFLMAO! This is even better than the Ember Island play. Ahaha. XD

Ha ha ha! I like your Ozai-Zuko scene.
The picture up there of the stunt double is not 100% sure of Zhao's looks.
We'll have to wait another week or so and then see.

Haha, yeah I know. But just the thought of it is hilarious. XD

Hahah Indian rastafarian.

I can't wait for the new trailer. I think this is going to make a lot of people decide whether or not they'll be into this movie, regardless of the race stuff.

First impression are important.
Too bad the movie is opening on the weekend of the new Twilight film. It's box office suicide.

Twilight is evil incarnate...i'm just saying is all. Avatar has the Spirit World on it's side...what do the Twihards have???? And emo vampire and an the greatest Mary Sue that ever didn't live.

It may stand a bit of a chance. I've never seen any of the Twilight stuff, but there seems to be an anti-Twilight movement gaining strength, at least in the USA.

now I'm imagining Zhao with dreadlocked mutton chops/sideburns. IF ANYONE CAN DO IT, HE CAN
rufftoon
Feb. 1st, 2010 12:46 am (UTC)
Dreadlock sideburns...hmmm...You're right, he could make it work! Ha ha!

Hairbending? This begs the question. If there are any hairbenders around what kind of magical beast taught them to hairbend, in the beginnings. Yaksheep? Kangalamas?
rufftoon
Feb. 1st, 2010 12:45 am (UTC)
No one talks of the hairbenders. They're not considered as cool, so whatever history of spirits or creature that taught them that art has been lost.

No one ever talks about the last hairbender.

I can totally see Iroh gettin' down with some Bob Marley, head bobbing to the beat over a strong cup of tea.

Strong cup of tea and special brownies.
There are some weird smells wafting from Zuko's ship on music night.

1) NO SIDEBURNS!?!?!?! DSHDOSDH O
T___________________T

2) So if there is a rastafarian movement in the FN nobility... they do smoke pot then!
rufftoon
Feb. 1st, 2010 01:56 am (UTC)
1) This is not Zhao, just a stunt actor (and apparently, not even Zhao's stunt double), so sideburns are still...hypothetically possible. Wait and see.
2) If it was pot, you'd think they'd be more mellow about the whole war thing.

1) Thank God!!!
2) LOL, maybe they're on withdrawal? XP
rufftoon

That's it: they started the war because the air nomads did an embargo on the high quality pot they were growing up on their mountains. The Earth Kingdom did the same and everything went sour after that.
impetusofadream
Feb. 1st, 2010 05:59 pm (UTC)
*snicker* Ooooo, and thy go after the Water Tribes cause they've got this super resillent strain and they WANTS IT! Or cause they're trying to find a replacement for pot, they want the Tribers peyote.
engelen
Feb. 1st, 2010 06:07 pm (UTC)
yes.
It's because of the drugs.

It's ALWAYS about the drugs!

Probably the war's just going on now out of habit, and Ozai didn't realize he burned the biggest plantation of pot in the world (the whole final fight? It was just a bad trip)

oh shnap i can totally see the war being started over the earth kingdom imposing heavy tariffs on pot and the fire nation not having the landmass to grow enough to meet demand...
rufftoon
Feb. 1st, 2010 05:29 pm (UTC)
The Rastafire Nation NEED their pot! It is wrong to go against their demand.
zabchan
Feb. 1st, 2010 05:33 pm (UTC)
clearly the rastafire nation is the victim in this terrible tragedy. the white lotus society eventually swoops in and teaches the world about harmony and brotherly love and the importance of rooftop gardens

RASTAFIRE NATION XD HAHAHAHAHAHA
engelen
Feb. 1st, 2010 06:05 pm (UTC)
it's always about the drugs man, always about the drugs....

LOL suddenly the image of fire nation people throwing boxes out of ships screaming stuff like "NO TAXING ON THE POT!!" Came to my mind XD

Hahaha, the Rasta fire nation XD Awesome. I'm glad that is not Zhao's confirmed design... I was going to be angry but now I can go back to my state of eager anticipation.
rufftoon
Feb. 1st, 2010 02:23 am (UTC)
Rastafire Nation- I love the name, ha ha! Gonna be using it here and there and giving you full credit for it!
I think our demands for Zhao are high. Too high. Impossibly high!!
Next Sunday, hopefully, he'll make a quick appearance.

Hairbending? OMG, I wrote a bit of fanfic about that in my alternative LJ account!
impetusofadream
Feb. 1st, 2010 06:16 pm (UTC)
I'd just like to say that Shaun Toub with that much hair in general is a hairbending feat of magnificance!

So...Rastafire nation is basically a cross of Indian/Jamaican/And what appears to be Mongolian? What is that thier clothes are based off of? (Other than what looks like a better version of the costumes for the Singapore pirates in Pirates of the Caribbean 3) I mean I studied costuming and I still can't pin down all the cultures and time periods they're ganking from.

*If Zhao has no chops, Paramount will have committed the greatest travesty to date*

No wonder the Fire Nation went after the Air Nomads first in their conquests. THEY WANTED THEM TO SHAVE THE ALL MIGHTY DREADS. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

And what is this I hear? It will come out the same weekend as another Twilight flick? UGH. My midnight showing party plans will be ruined by sparkling vampires!
