No more Poppins

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

On March 3, the Broadway run of Mary Poppins will end after a practically perfect six-year run. All is not lost for fans of Disney theatrics, though: Disney has announced that one of its theme-park musicals will be extended, upgraded, and graduated to the Broadway stage.

Said musical expert Jasmine Abu in a telephone interview we forgot to record: “Disney has high hopes that audiences will be thrilled by their full-cast, high-energy production of Carousel of Progress. It’s expected to play to packed houses, particularly if rumors are true that Jim Parsons will be playing Father.”

According to what we’re going to say was an official Disney press release, the show will feature the original Sherman Brothers song, with additional music by Broadway legends Rodgers and Hammerstein. Show-stopping numbers include “If I Plugged You,” “Fuses Are Bustin’ Out All Over,” “Whats the Use of Wirin’,” and “You’ll Never Watch (Televised Wrestling) Alone.”

Steve Jobs

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

At, we hate being serious, but this is one of those times where we have no choice.

Steve Jobs was an amazing man and an inspiration in a great many areas of our lives. He did so much in so little time. We will miss him immeasurably.

We’re going to go queue up a Pixar film on our iPad and have a little smile with our cry.

Legoland Disneyland

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

The Lego Group announced in a press release today that, after months of intense inter-lawyer negotiations, they had secured rights from Disney to build an all-Lego replica of Disneyland in Legoland California’s “Miniland” area. The 1:20 scale park will include representations of all major attractions, many mechanically animated scenes, and humorous details such as Lego churros, minifigures with wheelbarrows full of money approaching the ticket booths, a Lego wampa standing in for the Matterhorn yeti, and suicidal-looking parental minifigs in the Brobdingnagian Dumbo queue.

Said a thermoplastic injection molded Lego representative, “Disneyland is said to be built from fantasy and dreams, and we are happy to report that, in 2012, we will demonstrate that it can also be built from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene. The Legoland Disneyland Miniland will have all the ‘lands’ of the original Disneyland, including an Adventureland Miniland, a Frontierland Miniland, and a Miniland Fantasyland with an enormous miniature castle. One of the Legomasters even put a little Lando Calrissian minifig near where they have the Jedi Training show, as if, after touring the galaxy, Lando had landed in Legoland Disneyland Miniland and planned to be on hand at the unmanned Tomorrowland bandstand. Isn’t that grand?”
