You know, I had completely forgotten how awesome of a movie Make Mine Music
is. It has some of my all-time favorite animated segments ever, like 'All the Cats Join In', 'Peter and the Wolf', 'Casey at the Bat', 'After You've Gone' (with the master, Benny Goodman), 'Johnny Fedora and Alice Bluebonnet', plus 'The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met'. Classic, bro.
If you ask me, the whole reason why Disney's animation/film department is in the rut it's in now is because they've left classic storytelling and good ol' fashioned dementedness for marketing to infantile prepubescent kids who have parents with deep pockets. Doesn't anyone else remember when "family entertainment" was actually entertaining to the entire family?
And speaking of Disney:
Ooooomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg. Check it
s. My little half-man-but-more-than-a-man will be at all fuckin' four
Weekends! Hosting!! *omgwtfsquee* (Now, if only they'd release the rest of the celebs they're getting, I'd be really
happy. In the mean time, I'll just keep my fingers crossed that Peter Mayhew and/or (preferably and) Anthony Daniels are somewhere on that list.)
And I was so worried I'd end up missing him this year, since I don't have much choice in which Weekend I'll end up attending. (I'm pretty much limited to the weekend of the 27th, which unfortunately turns out to be Memorial Day weekend, meaning there'll be tourists up the wazoo, there. Reason why it'll have to be then is because it's the only chance I'll have to take _dangerkitty_
, between her graduation (and other senior year activities) and birthday, (and while this is just an excuse for me to go to Disney again, I'm using the reasoning that it's her joint graduation/birthday gift).)
Shit, now I got myself all horny for Disney!
