For Atlantis, Disney needed a new language for the Atlantean people. To do this, Disney hired Mark Okrand, the man who also created the famous Klingon and Vulcan for the Star Trek series. In the Atlantean language, Mark Okrand’s main source for it’s roots and stems of its words are Proto-Indo-European,but as Okrand also described it as being the “tower of babel” or “root dialect” for all languages in the world, he also used ancient Chinese, Latin, Greek, Biblical Hebrew, along with many other ancient languages or their reconstructions. As such, you can actually learn to write and speak the language!

This film is so underrated it hurts.

Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them.

I’m honestly thinking this is a troll, but if it’s not:

" … nothing but curse language …" Really?

"It’s a numbers game, but shit don’t add up somehow
Like I got, 16 to 32 bars to rock it
But only 15% of profits ever see my pockets like
69 billion in the last 20 years
Spent on national defense but folks still live in fear like
Nearly half of America’s largest cities is one-quarter black
That’s why they gave Ricky Ross all the crack
16 ounces to a pound, 20 more to a ki
A 5-minute sentence hearing and you’re no longer free …”
Mos Def

"A generation overly obsessed with mobsters
Our revolutionaries won Grammys and Oscars
Impostors, fake auras and weak chakras
Makin’ a mockery of the music to be pop stars.”
Pharoahe Monch

"Individual stars float in the ocean of God
Rocking a pinky ring of Saturn while I’m visiting Mars
Egos bigger than Jupiter are breaking the bars
Holding me back down to Earth to physical laws.”
Cise Starr

"She said, she never fell in love with a Superman,
Christian, Muslim, Protestant, Lutheran
I told her that being a mortal is the portal
to the true nature of growth, the Christ-like Buddha-man.”
- Jay Electronica

"Somebody tell these shorties reach for the stars
Instead they tell ‘em how to reach through the bars.”
Nas

"Imagine life at it’s full peak
Then imagine lying dead in the arms of your enemy
Imagine peace on this Earth when there’s no grief
Imagine grief on this Earth when there’s no peace.”
Scarface

As far as country music being a better genre than Hip-Hop …

Music is, of course very subjective to our personal tastes, whether a genre is “better” is a pointless argument. However, to state in any way that Hip-Hop is inferior to country or any genre, which is the implication, is asinine. 

There are more lyrics in one verse of a Hip-Hop song than an entire country song. The lyrics above demonstrate on their own the complexity of lyricism in Hip-Hop compared to that of other genres. It is an advanced form of poetry.

Then compare the depth and innovation that goes into the production of Hip-Hop, and compare that to producing country music, and again, we find a far more intricate art in Hip-Hop.
