DEFUNCT TV - SESAME STREET

DEFUNCT TV - SESAME STREET

So here's a second part to that Defunct TV Jim Henson special that is really well worth viewing.



 It's honestly a great educational aspect to learning the history and how we got to where we are now.

DR. JOHN

DR. JOHN 

Dr. John, a New Orleans legend passed away. And man, I miss that place a lot. The last time I was there was in 2014 and I came back to my father passing away while I was mid flight. Honestly, I want to go back in the worst way. Probably won't happen till after Christmas, but I'm going to make it a thing because New Orleans, you are a home away from home that I love oh so much and Dr. John made it just that much more inviting.

Rest in Peace you amazing man.

DEFUNCT TV - THE JIM HENSON DOCUMENTARY

DEFUNCT TV - THE JIM HENSON DOCUMENTARY

I love Jim Henson's work. That's pretty much an understatement as his work made such an impression on me growing up. So hey, here's this first part of this documentary on him by Defunct TV, a youtube channel that seemed to focus on Disney videos, so this is awesome.

DISNEY'S ALADDIN

DISNEY'S ALADDIN 

I'm just going to start this off by saying I generally don't see the point of myself watching any live action Disney movie remake of their animated projects. Why? Because it was never really targeted to me, someone who watched the animated version when it was released.

This is just a way to reintroduce their property to a new generation in theaters and that's fine. What isn't fine is that these live actions feel like I just wasted time watching an inferior version of the film that I remember. Then again, that's mostly due to nostalgia and all that bullshit.

Let's get started with the critiquing. The Genie played by Will Smith is... I mean, it's sometimes alright and then it's sometimes just crosses the line of all human decency and makes you wonder what the fuck were they thinking. I do have history with the man as I was almost run over by him on the studio lot this one time. So clearly he has been trying to kill me in one way or another for a long time coming now.  So from hell's heart I stab at thy.

in mecca saudi arabia born and raised

in the desert is where I spent most of my days

wishing out, lamping, relaxing all cool

and rubbin' on the lamp up inside of the tomb

when a dude named iago was up to no good

started makin trouble in the kingdomhood

I granted one little wish and aladdin got scared

and said "no more wishing on the blue genie we got here"


Now the more that I think about it, this film isn't really bad enough to warrant any hate. It's just a by-the-numbers, overly focus-grouped, unncecessary Disney live-action remake of a better movie. Nothing really offensive happens. Nothing interesting happens as well. It's like going to see folks sing karaoke. Not really seeing the real thing, but you get the idea.  It's ultimately forgettable.

 I'm Javier and I'll see you in the isle!

MAY THE FORCE BE IN YOUR GALAXIES EDGE DRINK

MAY THE FORCE BE IN YOUR GALAXIES EDGE DRINK 

Okay, so one of the themed drinks you can buy at Galaxies Edge is the famous Blue Milk Luke grew up drinking and the green milk he... well... he rather enjoyed in his final days on that island.

Oh man, what the fuck. I loved that seen so much, but it was strange....



Can't wait! Hope I can squeeze it out of the teat.

ZORRO AT DISNEYLAND

ZORRO AT DISNEYLAND 

As a child I loved Zorro in my early years. He was great and I had this sort of obsession for all that. So seeing these old videos that Disneyland had Zorro just doing his thing, that just makes my heart smile.



Can we get that sort of thing back, Disney?

TAYLOR SWIFT - ME!

TAYLOR SWIFT - ME!

A couple of weeks ago, good ol' T-swizzle dropped a banger and, well, I can't hide my feelings for it.





Look, maybe Swift is playing to my demographic - that is the demo that got out of a really long term relationship just a bit over a year ago. So, you know, I'm easily a target for her usual songs about heart scorn. But I don't even think that is it. No, you see, the music video had a color scheme that was so amazingly awesome that I wanted so much more. The pastel colors really worked with me and the outfit changes were well designed. Had a very Pushing Daisies sort of feel to it, which I do miss as a show.

Besides, the message is pretty solid that one feels when they're jilted that one will never find someone out there like themselves. I mean, that could be taken two ways that if you wanted to get away from someone that you felt was toxic, I guess that's good you'll never find another like oneself. But I mean, it's pretty clear the message of this one is I'm fucking awesome, fuck you. And well, I can get behind on that with ease.

Cause you know there ain't no I in team, but you can't spell awesome without me.

I ain't better, fuck you.
