Day #2: Your favorite villain
Norman Osborn, a.k.a. The Green Goblin, is amazing when written well. Unfortunately, he was all over the place in Dark Reign, so even I got tired of him for a while.
Day #1: Your favorite character
Daredevil became a favorite of mine a couple years ago when I read Bendis’ amazing run on the character. I then read Frank Miller’s classic run, including the incredible “Born Again”, and I enjoyed that even more. Since then I’ve been keeping up with the current title as well as reading all sorts of new and old comics featuring the man without fear, and I urge you...

Day #30: Your favorite theme park show
Illuminations is so. Fucking. Awesome. Not only are fireworks and light shows cool to begin with, it also has incredible music accompaniment. And they’re stopping it soon. This makes me sad.
Day #29: Your favorite theme attraction
Eventually you need a bit of a breather in between all the fun and excitement, and that’s where the TTA comes in — Disney’s most underappreciated ride.
Day #28: Your favorite theme park
Magic Kingdom always and forever. Happiest place on earth.
There’s a girl. Isn’t there always? Anyway, I figured, before...– Anonymous internet denizen
Day #27: Your favorite quote
How many times do I have to kill you, boy?
Day #26: Saddest death
I kind of already answered this, but just in case you missed it: Ellie from Up.
I think it’s perfectly possible to explain how the universe came about without...– Philip Pullman (via scottmcrissman)
Day #25: Your favorite scene from your favorite...
The ballroom scene from Beauty and the Beast, no contest. Can’t wait to see how they retool it in 3d.
Day #24: A movie that makes you cry
Just looking at this still from Up makes me well up a bit.
Day #23: A movie that makes you laugh
The Emperor’s New Groove has such a clever script, even when you look past the fact that Patrick Warburton (Kronk) completely steals the show. It’s one of the few movies I can tolerate David Spade in, and one of the few where I will actually laugh aloud rather than just smile.
Day #22: An underrated movie
Fantasia is an absolutely beautiful work of visual art that is perfectly in sync with the incredible music that accompanies it. Never has animation gone so well with music, and I doubt it ever will again. As a note, I can only listen to Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy when watching this.
Day #21: An overrated movie
Again, Robin Hood. It was just a desperate attempt to grab cash when Disney was about to go bankrupt (recycled frames, anyone?), and at some points it really shows. Furries in particular love this, but why would you trust their opinion on something that has anthropomorphic animals?
Day #20: Favorite sequel
To quote somebody from the internet, “Toy Story is the trilogy The Godfather wishes it was.”
Dead Writers Club: Happy Deathday Mr. Barrie! →
On this day in 1937, famed Scottish novelist and playwright, J.M. Barrie died of pneumonia. He was 77 years old. Barrie is, of course, most famous for his play Peter Pan or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, which was produced in 1904 and the novelized version Peter and Wendy, published in…
Day #18: Your favorite Pixar film
Up is touching, exciting and unbelievably imaginative. I couldn’t ask for more from a film.
Day #17: Your least favorite classic
How far back is considered “classic”? Because I don’t like Robin Hood at all.
Day #16: Your favorite classic
Pinnochio has some beautiful animation, great music and is all in all just fun to watch. Two thumbs up.
In the end, I saw Superman not as a superhero or even a science fiction...– Grant Morrison on writing All-Star Superman. Go buy it.
Day #15: The first movie you saw
I’ll be honest, I can barely remember what the last one I saw was, much less the first. My memory is horrid.
The success of Glenn Beck’s novel, “The Overton Window,” will...– Steven Levingston, from The Washington Post’s Book World
I am diverting myself by assembling an Amazon wishlist. If you have any suggestions based on what I have on here/what you know of me, let me know.
Day #13: Your least favorite song
The gargoyles are the only bad thing about The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I believe it would have been their best movie if they hadn’t been included. That’s how annoying they are.
