I promised another Disney pin post, and here it is.  I bought two limited edition pins on eBay and hoped for the best in terms of authenticity.  I am pretty sure both pins are real (YAY!) but feel free to let me know in the comment section whether or not you think either pins are fake.  If you want more of the surprise factor, press play on the video down below to watch me open the two packages and reveal the pins.  If you want to skip ahead and see close up pictures, scroll down.

DC vs Marvel

If you’re wondering what the heck is going on, here’s a basic synopsis: Since DC Comics threw their moviemaking hat into the ring that Marvel has dominated since the 2000s, fans have split down the middle, and it is heated.  Relax!  I’m not going to pick a side and start an argument.  I’m here to talk about my disappointment.  If you like a movie embraced by the majority, no one bats an eyelash.  If you like a movie despised by the majority, all hell breaks loose.  Why do people feel the need to bully individuals who like a certain movie?!  No amount of argument is going to change someone’s personal feelings.  You can hate a movie, but don’t attack someone who liked it.  It isn’t difficult to walk away without saying something, especially on the internet.

This is a great time to be alive!  The superheroes we grew up watching on TV are now on the big screen.  We are getting films from DC and Marvel every single year.  Why can’t we all just get along and agree that this is FREAKING awesome?  If you like a movie, feel free to share and spread the love.  If you didn’t like a movie, respect your fellow fans and consider keeping your opinion quiet or refraining from a review that is nothing other than a bashing session.

There’s only one way to end on a positive note.  You’re welcome! 👍

My Favorite Disney Channel Original Movies

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

Someday I will write about subjects other than Disney & nostalgia.  Today is not that day.  😂  In honor of Disney Channel’s original movie marathon this Memorial Day weekend, I am going to share my favorite DCOMs.

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

• Stand-alone

Stuck in the Suburbs – 2004

Taran Killam is one of my favorite Saturday Night Live cast members.  When I realized he played Jordan Cahill, I freaked out.  Baby Jordan!

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

• Series

Cheetah Girls – 2003

Cheetah Girls 2 – 2006

My friends and I listened to the soundtrack on repeat.  We would pretend to be The Cheetah Girls, touring and making music videos with my camera.  Since there were three of us, I was a Chanel/Dorinda hybrid. ;)

High School Musical – 2006

High School Musical 2 – 2007

The HSM movies are the only DCOMs I still own (besides Camp Rock).  That about sums it up.

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

Stuck in the Suburbs is my favorite because it possesses the DCOM spirit.  The only reason it’s above The Cheetah Girls and High School Musical is because both of those series blew up and became something beyond just Disney Channel films.  They were revolutionary and to this day hold significance in DCOM history.  A random person on the street might know about T.C.G. or H.S.M. but most likely not S.I.T.S.  Hopefully that makes sense!

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

• Others

Cadet Kelly – 2002

Lizzie McGuire and Kim Possible are two of my favorite Disney Channel shows.  A movie with Christy Carlson Romano (Kim) and Hilary Duff (Lizzie)??  Yes please!!

Camp Rock – 2008

I was obsessed with Mitchie’s wardrobe.  Also, the Jonas brothers.

Cow Belles – 2006

Fun fact: Aly & AJ songs still play on repeat on my Spotify account.  No shame!

Go Figure – 2005

Figure skating, hockey, & Everlife music.  Need I say more?!

Jump In – 2007

I’m pretty sure I asked my mom for a jump rope after this movie premiered.

Kim Possible: So The Drama – 2003

I already mentioned my love for KP.  No other words are necessary.

Now You See It – 2005

This movie is a hidden gem.  I found out about it after seeing Johnny Pacar on Flight 29 Down and doing further research about his career.  I’ve been hooked ever since.

Pixel Perfect – 2004

I totally forgot about this movie until I saw it on the Disney Channel TV schedule.  I flipped out!!  Hands down one of my favorite DCOMs.  I wish I could watch it more often.

Read it And Weep – 2006

It’s always special re-watching movies that I saw commercials for before they premiered.  I got the full experience!

The Even Stevens Movie – 2003

My brother and I loved this show growing up.  Of course I love the movie!

The Proud Family Movie – 2005

I wish Suga Mama was my relative.  I love her so much!  😂

Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior – 2006

I had the biggest crush on Shin Koyamada.  Also, girl power!

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

All of the previously mentioned films fall below my favorites but are in no way on the bottom.  I could watch them over and over and never get bored.

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

• Honorable Mentions

Avalon High – 2010

Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam – 2010

Get a Clue – 2002

Lemonade Mouth – 2011

Starstruck – 2010

The Cheetah Girls: One World – 2008

Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century – 1999

Zenon: The Zequel – 2001

Zenon: Z3 – 2004

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

These are movies that I like but don’t love.  Some may surprise you, but keep in mind this is my personal opinion.  I also want to point out something.  I like the Zenon series, but I haven’t watched the movies many times therefore I don’t feel right putting them in the favorites category.

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

If you’ve missed part of the marathon, have no fear!  There are many DCOMs available on Netflix.  Also, more will be airing throughout June in preparation for the premiere of Disney Channel’s 100th original movie Adventures in Babysitting.

📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺 📺

The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale | April 2016

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

Take a deep breath TWD fans.  Let’s talk through the pain.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

* * * Warning: I will be talking openly so please DO NOT read this if you have not watched the season 6 finale.  There may be SPOILERS ahead.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

1.  I have no idea what is wrong with Maggie, but I’m scared.  What happens if she miscarried??  Every human that dies becomes a zombie.  What does that mean??  Are things about to get really weird??

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

2.  I’m pretty sure Carl and Enid will never be friends again.  He locked her in a closet!!  I know he was trying to protect her, but I don’t think she will be very understanding.  On the other hand, maybe she will be.  The group has worse things to deal with now.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

3.  I loved watching Carol’s progression into the kick-butt category but didn’t realize the toll it had taken until this episode.  She stared death in the face and taunted her shooter to finish the job.  She has managed to stay alive, but fear and emotion are starting to make her unstable.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

4.  I was concerned when Morgan told Carol’s shooter he could leave alive.  He has tried my patience this season with his “zen” approach to the zombie apocalypse.  Thankfully he did what he had to do: shoot the enemy.  Seriously though, the one time he decides to kill a (bad) human, and he wastes all of his bullets.  One headshot would have sufficed.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

5.  The Saviors taunted Rick’s group the entire episode, but the worst blow was the stunt they pulled dressing two zombies with items from Daryl and Michonne.  That was cruel considering no one knew Daryl, Glenn, Michonne, and Rosita were in danger.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

6.  This episode had me on edge the entire 90 minutes.  By the end, I had cried and said goodbye to every character just in case.  When Eugene left with the RV, I was sure he was a dead man.  Next thing I know, I’m watching several beloved characters kneel before Negan and fear for their lives.  My body was shaking.  My hands were partially covering my eyes.  Tears were streaming down my face.  I was not okay.  I’m still not okay.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

Closing Thoughts:  First of all, let’s take a moment to appreciate the stellar cast.  The regulars did a fantastic job, especially those who came face to face with Negan.  Watching Rick go from confident leader to powerless victim was heartbreaking.  The Saviors’ whistling sent chills down my spine and freaked me out, paving the way for Negan.  I knew Jeffrey Dean Morgan would kill it, and he did not disappoint.  In the end, it was implied that someone died a la Lucille, but the identity was not revealed.  I was so emotionally shaken that I didn’t think twice about the cliffhanger until I read social media comments.  I have come to expect cliffhangers from TWD so I wasn’t bothered, but I understand why fans are upset.  After numerous mid-season and season finale cliffhangers, people were craving some closure, closure they once again did not get.  I trust that the writers know what they’re doing, but I do think the show has lost some of its edge in the eyes of viewers.  I have not given up and don’t plan on doing so anytime soon.  The Negan storyline is promising in terms of edgy content, and I’m nervous/excited to see what happens next.

💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀💀

There are three more things I want to highlight:

1.  C-3PO, R2-D2, & BB-8 made an appearance.  How cute was it seeing the droids all together on the stage?!  Dream come true for me! 💕

2.  Dave Grohl performed “Blackbird” during the In Memoriam presentation.   It was beautiful!  What else can I say??  The performance speaks for itself. 🎶🎶🎶

3.  I am sure Brie Larson doesn’t want any kind of special attention for her kind deed during one of the commercial breaks, but I think it deserves attention.  She stood up and hugged each and every one of the sexual assault survivors as they left the stage following the Lady Gaga performance.  That speaks volumes about who Miss Larson is as a person.

DisneyBounding Into Autumn

(Image Source: https://katejohns619.wordpress.com/tag/pocahontas/)

What is it: Disney Parks do not allow visitors to wear costumes because they might be mistaken for cast members.  DisneyBound refers to the subtle replication of Disney characters and places using street clothes.  This way, no one gets in trouble, and everybody has fun.  :)

How Did it Start:  Leslie Kalbfleisch A.K.A. Leslie Kay has imitated characters using fashion from the time she was a child.  When she finally achieved her goal of visiting Disney World with her best friend, she created a Tumblr blog to document the trip.  She called it “DisneyBound” because she was literally “Disney-Bound.”  All she had to do was post a few Disney-themed outfits, and it took less than a month for Leslie to get national recognition.  DisneyBound has its own community as well as a clothing lines dedicated to making DisneyBounding easier.  The possibilities are endless!!  (Liddane)

Moving on to part 2 of this post, I want to show you seven DisneyBound looks.  These are outfits I created from my own closet, no purchases necessary.

All the outfits are featured in my “Autumn DisneyBound Lookbook” video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deEr9JoF3vI

Keep in mind this is my interpretation of seven Disney characters based on what was available in my wardrobe.  The ensembles are not perfect, but they capture the spirit of the characters.  DisneyBound is supposed to be fun, not difficult or stressful.

Don’t Forget Me

Don't Forget Me

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. Jonathan Crombie, best known for his movie role as the beloved Gilbert Blythe, passed away on Wednesday, April 15, at the age 48; the cause was a brain hemorrhage. I grew up watching the Anne of Green Gables movies and dreaming of meeting and marrying my very own Gil. Me and my friends were so smitten with him that we had to designate an area specifically for freak outs; the “Jonathan Crombie Couch” will forever be a treasured memory of mine. I received an Anne of Green Gables music box for Valentine’s Day this year. At the time, the gift was thoughtful, but now it holds so much more meaning. God knew I would need a special reminder of Jonathan, my own personal piece of Gilbert. The following is a short statement given to the Canadian Press by Crombie’s Anne of Green Gables co-star Megan Follows:

“He was incredibly funny, Jonathan just had an amazing sense of humour,” she told The Canadian Press. “Truly I just remember at times just laughing so hard that you’d just be crying. He was so playful and silly and, as I said, really bright, so his humour was always informed with that, which made him even funnier.” Follows called Crombie a “sweetheart” and said a lot of the chemistry onscreen was natural during the filming of the movies. “He had that beautiful face. He was a lot of fun, he was very open so you just felt he was someone who really wanted to play and it really was a new experience for him,” she said, adding that the project was one of Crombie’s first. “We were all just in it to do the best that we could and we had a lot of fun.”  (Source: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2015/04/19/jonathan-crombie-megan-follows_n_7095258.html)  I think it is safe to say Jonathan’s version of Gilbert was not far from his true nature: playful and endearing.

It seems all too appropriate to mention some of my favorite Gilbert and Anne scenes from each movie. I have more than one in each film, but, for the sake of attention spans, I will keep the list short. In the first movie “Anne of Green Gables”, one of my favorite moments is the very last scene in which Gilbert sacrificially gives up the Avonlea school so that Anne can teach there and stay at home with Marilla. They exchange the following dialogue, recalling fondly what was originally an explosive and classic moment:

Anne: “Aren’t you worried? I’m liable to break another slate over your head.”                                                                                                     Gilbert: “I’m more worried I might break one over yours, carrots”

The scene starts at the 9:57 mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPREdzRRRlY

In “Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel”, one of my favorite moments is when Gil and Anne are FINALLY a couple, and they are standing on a bridge discussing their future:

Gilbert: “It’ll be three years before I finish medical school. Even then there won’t be any diamond sunbursts or marble halls”                     Anne: “I don’t want diamond sunbursts, or marble halls. I just want you.”

The scene starts at the 9:20 mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZW6eBrWH9w

In the third and final film “Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story”, my FAVORITE moment has to be, of course, the scene when Anne and Gil are reunited after her arduous search during World War I. Anne is on a stage with two friends singing for soldiers; they are singing “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”, Gil and Anne’s wedding dance song. As she is scanning the crowd, Anne spots a familiar, beloved face. Running ensues as well as a heartwarming reunion. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8dc9kqaXBI

I want to give my condolences to all of Jonathan’s loved ones. My heart goes out to you, and you are in my prayers.

Jonathan: You embodied a classic book character, a portrayal that was truly a gift to the film industry. You will always be remembered and loved as Gil in the hearts of your fans. Rest in peace.

Don't Forget Me

The “Anne of Green Gables” family could never forget you!! <3 <3 <3
