Where The Wild Things Are

The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another. His mother called him “WILD THING!” and Max said “I’LL EAT YOU UP!” so he was sent to bed without eating anything. That very night in Max’s room a forest grew and grew- and grew until his ceiling hung with vines and the walls became the world all around and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max and he sailed off through night and day and in and out of weeks and almost over a year to where the wild things are. And when he came to the place where the wild things are they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws- till Max said “BE STILL!” and tamed them with a magic trick of staring into their yellow eyes without blinking once and they were frightened and called him the most wild thing of all and made him king of all wild things. “And now,” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!” “Now stop!” Max said and sent the wild things off to bed without their supper. And Max the king of all wild things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all. Then all around from far away across the world he smelled good things to eat so he gave up being king of where the wild things are. But the wild things cried, “Oh please don’t go- we’ll eat you up- we love you so!” And Max said, “No!” The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled theur terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws but Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye and sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day and into the night of his very own room where he found his supper waiting for him- and it was still hot.

Just For The Record

Just For The Record is a blog written by a great friend of mine, who is almost as funny as she thinks she is. 😛

Please check out her blog and support her in her new efforts!

Welcome!

If you have found this site blog please contact me immediately – you will be my first (possibly last) visitor and even if it’s accidental I would like to thank you personally…because you are possibly proof miracles and sympathy site visits do happen.

This entire blog started from being told I was hilarious – not just funny … funny people stay on Facebook – I am apparently hilarious… first lesson of this fun filled page – do not build up the mildly talented – they will take your confidence in them and create multimillion dollar blogs … don’t look at me like that … it could happen.

My boyfriend has told me there are free blog sites … I was half way through purchasing this site when he told me – it’s like he hasn’t even met me… I will put a lot of money into something before I know…

LucasArts sold to Disney for $4 Billion

So, as some of you will have already read, George Lucas has recently sold all of the rights to  LucasArts and all of it’s subsidiaries to the Walt Disney Company.  For more details on this, please check out the LucasArts, Everything Star Wars Sold to Disney article (at GameTrailers.com) and/or watch the interview with George Lucas & Kathleen Kennedy as they talk Star Wars and Disney.

A lot of people of talking about how this is either a massive sell out for the Star Wars franchise, that Disney will destroy Star Wars.  I, however, think that it is the best news in a long time for Star Wars fans.  Having George hang up his Writer/Director/Producer/Creative Despot boots one and for all means that there is new hope that for a franchise that has struggled with fans in light of the most recent three movies (Episodes I, II & III).  I know that George had a story that he wanted to tell, but because he had too much control with the most recent trilogy, he had no one truly grounding him with a lot of his “creative decisions”… in my honest opinion.

Episodes IV, V & VI had George coordinating with directors that would challenge his vision, and therefore helped him create a better movies (yes, we will avoid discussing Ewoks, thank you very much!).  Now that he is “retiring” from the franchise, and that Disney has stated that there WILL BE and Episode VII, there is an opportunity for new directors, writers, and producers to come together and produce a truly balanced third trilogy.  Of course, there are no guarantees, but at least there is a possibility of this occurring where there was no chance previously.

It also means that Disney will want to make their money back and therefore should be releasing a significant amount of product under their newly acquired franchise.  That means more Star Wars, which can’t help but make the fans happy.

Black Adder Goes Forth – Coffee

Now that we are working out of a smaller office, with a fair possibility that coffee supplies may run low at any given time, I always think of this Blackadder episode when I offer to make coffee for the guys… 😀
