Friday Five: Disney Characters

GoofyMy five favorite Disney characters:

  1. Goofy
    Goofy will always be my favorite cartoon character of all time. When I was a very little boy, I had a stuffed Goofy that was my constant companion. I hugged him so long and so often that his nose fell off. My mom stitched him a new one from an old beige sock and he became known as “Sock-Nose Goofy”. I still have him.
  2. Mickey Mouse
  3. Donald Duck
  4. Jiminy Cricket
  5. Dumbo

If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It

Today is the birthday of Walt Disney, one of the most important men in my life. He was born December 5, 1901, in Chicago. He changed the world, and his creations have had a profound impact on me. I truly would not be who I am today if it wasn’t for his vision. I grew […]

Scribbled Drunk on a Postcard, Sent from Somewhere Volcanoes Are

It’s tough to be upset about a day that includes a ten-mile run before breakfast, lunch at The Stand, and a trip to Disneyland. But here we are. For the very first time since Kelly gave me my Nike Fuel Band almost a year ago, I didn’t wear it all day. I started leaving it […]

Live Like a Hobbit

re you tired of city-living? Why not chuck it all and move to The Shire of Bend, Oregon? In this community they’re building Middle Earth-style cottages instead of the cookie-cutter houses seen in most new developments. Where most suburban landscapes have sewer systems and ditches, here Hobbit holes abound! The whole place looks like Disney […]

A.I.

Rebecca’s Pocket has an excellent and terse review of A.I.: “[*1/2--- ] Disney does Blade Runner. Skip it.” There’s a longer, very well-written review, albeit with major spoilers, at unHip.

fake facts

I’m a big fan of urban legends. Well. Okay. I’m a big fan of debunking urban legends. (Stop the bunking!) I don’t do much actual debunkment myself, rather I tend to inform people when what they are telling me is an urban legend or where they can go to learn if I am really risking […]
