  1. Disney has ruined my life


    I have to hand it to Disney. Few corporations can be great at being both good and evil. My hat goes off to you, Disney, for achieving that fine equilibrium. You bring us quality programming for kids--and manage to ruin their lives in the process.

    I speak, of course, about the sick and twisted travesty that is Disney television shows. Case in point: Kim Possible. I ranted once before about how Disney ruined Kim

  2. My love-hate relationship with Disney


    Disney and I have a sort of love-hate relationship going on when it comes to its television.

    I'm from the mid-nineties generation of children. I grew up on the after-school and Saturday-morning Disney cartoons like Disney's Recess and The Weekenders.

  5. THHGTG Premieres April 29, 2005!


    Yes, the one movie I have anticipated all my life—er, well at least since I've found it. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy premieres in the U.S. and Canada on April 29, 2005!

    Many people, including myself, are ambivalent (some outright outraged) about the movie. I think that Disney is in a precarious position: if they followed Adams' script, then the movie should be okay. Although I warn people, remember that Adams has the tendency…
