What, GoT is fun for the whole family!
Haha. It's all about finding the right shatterpoint.
Jaime and Cersei certainly think so.
Heh, those two tricksters. I can't believe Bran fell for it.

Well, unless I find a good deal on the Expanded B-wing or Nova-class cruiser...
Now make them fight each other and tell us which side won.
Yes, you have to use fireworks.
And re:GOT, I agree that it has a lot of kid and young teenager characters for kids to relate with (fine, I relate most with Hot Pie). What if I just showed Daenerys parts from the first season? That's an inspirational story.

THE ONE TRUE KING
And this is why I don't take your Disney opinions seriously--I assume it's incredibly elaborate irony.
In related news, can I borrow some money?
Sorry boss, I work for you, so that is a conflict of interest.
I haven't seen Aladdin since I was 7 or so, but I remember disliking it pretty intensely. I could be a very grouchy child. Of course, I also hated Beauty and the Beast, so I can't really put myself firmly on either side here.
I remember being scared of Beauty and the Beast when I was a kid. And many films I put off for years because they were too sad. The Fox and the Hound is one I own but have never watched all the way through in one sitting.
Kind of weird seeing Mini Eggs on sale yesterday when it ain't even 2014!
My favorite (traditional) Disney film will always be Jungle Book. It was the first movie I ever remember watching when I was young, I was probably two or even younger when we got the first ever VHS release (a tape I believe we still have somewhere). Differences from the book be hanged, I love it from beginning to end. And unlike Pinocchio, it didn't traumatize me or give me a fear of whales.
I have soft spots for Aladdin, Robin Hood, and The Great Mouse Detective as well. Most of the other films, both from the Renaissance era and before, I'm not a huge fan of, though. Lion King and Little Mermaid included. I'm indifferent to Beauty and the Beast, as I've only seen it once in its entirety. I was told all through growing up that I was basically the male version of Belle, so I purposely avoided it for years. And a lot of the newer films, like Tangled, I've not ever seen. I did love Wreck-It Ralph, though.
He shouldn't have been climbing anyway. He promised his mom.
Makes me think of the joke:
"The War on Christmas is a great success! We now have limited Christmas to occupying a mere two and a half months of the year!"
My last (I promise) picture, showing the full Rebel Fleet:
Happy New Year to all my fellow Litizens, be they Fleet Junkies, Diversity Nuts, Imperial Apologists, Rebel Rousers, SOS folks, or any other type of fan!
Ah, nice to see fb photos of people celebrating New Year's in places more awesome than I am
Bah, where's a Death Star when you need it?
More seriously: Happy New Year!
I will, of course, be maintaining my multiple memberships of various fan factions!
You would prefer to be Diversity Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS)?
Now you should start repainting some to be more diverse and movie accurate.
RED STAR DESTROYER
You need an Ackbar figure in the front holding a little "trap" warning sign.
I cannot begin to express my jealousy right now.
Happy New Year all.
Finished Journey's End for Doctor Who. Wow. Loved it minus the fate of two characters.
