Disney’s Club Penguin: a Cartoon Community for Children

By HomeRearedChef, published on Jan 24, 2013

Disney’s Club Penguin is a virtual world made up of cartoon penguins (avatars); a multiplayer role-playing game with a wide range of activities—and on a very large scale of playing. It is a game designed for ages six to fourteen years old, and with “safety” being the major focus—including “safe chat”: users select comments from a menu, which filters and prevents swearing, by using moderators who patrol the game.

Profits from the game are primarily raised through paid memberships which allow the players to access a wide range of features: the ability to purchase “virtual” clothing, furniture,... (more)

Dancing With The Stars - Season Nine

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 18, 2009

...It would have given Biden something to do with his feet besides gnaw on them and given Obama one less thing to worry about, at least, for a while.

Sadly, however, it has also been reported that Samantha Harris will be returning to co-host the program. I guess that is what places DWTS so high in the ratings, it couples (sorry for the pun) both elements of the theatre – comedy and tragedy – into one package.

Dancing with the Stars Season Nine premieres in Los Angeles Monday, September 21 at 8:00 on ABC7.

ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Company.

A Little Piece Of Quiet

By Glenn T, published on Aug 17, 2009

...would be no one under the age of 18 on my flight. Richard Branson can you hear me? Loud Class. Imagine if you were the first airline to offer a seperate seating area for "families"; a soundproof compartment at the extreme rear of the aircraft which could come complete with crayons, Disney movies and an infinitely patient flight attendant. You wouldn't even have to charge extra. A small surcharge on all the non-family tickets should be adequate and if anyone was not willing to pay it - they could be invited to travel back in the "Loud Class" seats. You could even let them... (more)

The Death Of Country Music

By Robert Harris, published on Apr 7, 2009

... name is Miley Cirus.

Billy Ray Cirus is the great musical has-been of the 20th century. After the success of “Achy Breaky Heart,” his career crashed and burned. This self proclaimed “Hillbilly” and his mullet was nothing but a distant forgotten memory until his Disney franchise of a daughter resurrected him. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes of the graveyard of Top Forty Past, Billy Ray was given a second chance. He couldn’t do it himself so he’s doing through his daughter and now they are joined at the hip. Actually, they’re joined at... (more)

Lightness Of Being

By SUNofMAN, published on Jan 23, 2009

...searching and finding as creative beings to give the viewer another look, another perspective 'eye' find what Isis is doing rather interesting in terms of her Glyphtoons! Cartoons have always been a "light affair". There playfulness, youth oriented perspectivehighlighted and exploited by Walt Disney has left its mark on our collective unconscious.And as Isis has mentioned to me this new figurative mode can be revealing and fuel for the creative fire.Going back to "Dona Cien Besitos de la Noche", I notice the absence of color. Colorevokes emotion but in this piece the dominant black &... (more)

Duh Na. Duh Na.

By slowasigo, published on Aug 31, 2008

Twenty years ago I sat in a Disneyland amphitheater as a member of the Southern California Youth Symphony. Playing second trumpet doesn’t typically afford inspiring solos nor dramatic musical interludes. This performance was different. We were performing music by John Williams. As an uncooperative student of classical music, two instruments, and neighborhood beat downs, playing such popular music as Star Wars, Superman and Raiders of the Lost Ark was geek-squad equivalents of dunking a basketball, kissing a cheerleader or owning a car.

John Williams is one of the most prolific... (more)

Top Ten Outdoor Venues In Los Angeles

By Josh Marks, published on Aug 21, 2008

...1050 S. Prairie Ave., Inglewood Web: www.hollywoodpark.com Phone: (310) 419-1500 Steeped in Hollywood lore, the Inglewood racetrack opened in 1938 under its chairman Jack Warner of Warner Bros. Among the original 600 shareholders were Al Jolson, Bing Crosby and Walt Disney. The hooves still hit the turf at Hollywood Park during racing season. Admission is only $7 and beers and hot dogs are $1 each on Friday nights, plus the chance to make it all back and then some by wagering on Topanga Love. That’s the horse to beat I tells ya! ... (more)

Un Livre De 7 A  77 Ans, Pour Tous Les Peter Pan...

By Sandra Knafo, published on Jul 29, 2008

...nousfait décoller de la terre des hommes pour un vol de nuitvers la citadelle de l'enfance. Les pages nous arrachent des sourires, malgrènos nébuleuses lectures.

Orson Wells avait acheté les droits du Petit Prince, et avait proposé à Walt Disney de l'adapter en film d'animation. Mais Disney tranche, la place n'est pas suffisante pour deux géniaux mastodontes.

Comme des graines que l'on sème le long des alinéas fructueux, ces phrases cultes égrenées, murissent en nous et nous accompagnent... (more)

Wall-e Fails To Entertain

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 4, 2008

The newest offering by Disney and Pixar should have been a slam-dunk for entertainment, but at 1 hour and 37 minutes WALL-E crashes and burns like the Hindenburg. The best parts of the movie are played for anyone who wants to see them. Just go to Yahoo! Movies and you can watch all of the trailers there for free and save your money. It’s not even worth waiting for the DVD.

I was very disappointed. I had high expectations for a movie that would keep me entertained much like the old Herbie movies. My expectations were obviously too high. Pixar failed to deliver on the promises made by... (more)

Popeye

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 26, 2008

1980Paramount Pictures/Walt Disney ProductionsDirected by Robert AltmanProduced by Robert EvansWritten by Jules FeifferBased on the “Thimble Theater” comic strip created by E.C. Segar POPEYE is kinda like the bastard child that nobody talks about or even acknowledges at family reunions. Whenever discussions about movies based on comic books or comic strips are mentioned nobody ever remembers POPEYE. Hell, people remember really obscure films based on comic strips such as “Friday Foster” starring Pam Grier or “Brenda Starr” with Brooke Shields and Timothy... (more)
