Yeah, I Want To Read This

There’s a new artist’s rendering of the Star Wars land being built at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The 14-acre addition (similar to the one being built at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida) will be the biggest single-theme expansion at the parks in history. Obviously this concept image tilts toward the fantastical. Still, Disney has said it does represent some of the attractions that will be included. Let’s fly a little closer and see what we can find ….

Tumblr And Disney

Tumblr and Disney are, I suppose, a natural pairing. Hardcore Disney fans are obsessive, and even non-hardcore fans are at least aware of Disney tropes. So the two coming together to create Interweb flotsam are as inevitable as chocolate and peanut butter.

Tumblr is a micro-blogging platform (I use it, it’s fun) that works particularly well with images. This post, from The Lion King, is about parenting and amused me.

Click below for a much larger collection of Disney/Tumblr musings, many of which use oddly profane language.

H/T to George Takei, the man from whom half of all Web content spreads these days.

A Nice Broadway Tribute to Robin Williams

From Theatermania.com, a video of a nice Broadway tribute to Robin Williams, courtesy of Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart, who plays The Genie in the stage version of the Disney musical; Williams, of course, played the part in the animated feature film.

Here’s Robin Williams in the movie (animated, obviously, both literally and figuratively). RIP, condolences to the man’s family and friends.

Japanese Woman Divorces Husband Because He Didn’t Like ‘Frozen’

I haven’t seen Frozen yet, but apparently I’d better not dislike it if my wife decides she does. At least not if I want our marriage to last. I say this because a Japanese woman is getting a divorce from her husband because he didn’t like Frozen. Details are below.

This is not a picture from Frozen, the Disney film and pop-culture phenomenon. It’s just a frozen waterfall. But it’s a nice photo, isn’t it?

DaddyDeal – Disney/Pixar Greatest, 25 Songs For Less Than Four Bucks

Like Pixar movies? Like the music from Pixar movies? Like to save money? Have we got a DaddyDeal for you.

Disney/Pixar Greatest

Disney/Pixar Greatest, 25 songs for less than four bucks.

Amazon has a set of 25 songs from Pixar movies for $3.99. Less than four bucks, folks. Instantly downloaded to your computer, or streamed via Amazon Cloud.

If you prefer, you can buy the CD for $4.99. Which is also a very good deal. This way you get the CD, which can easily be ripped onto your computer. And probably stored in Amazon Cloud, and then streamed. Maybe. Haven’t tried that yet.

The truth is at this moment in time I’m more inclined towards downloads. Not that I don’t think there’s a loss of audio quality. There is. And you don’t get a physical product. But that’s a plus right now. Because if there’s anything I don’t need, it’s more stuff.

I know. I’m the one who always says it’s your patriotic duty to buy things. First of all Read more »
