There is a great National Geographic/Indiana Jones exhibit touring the US and Canada right now – go see it if you have a chance! Lisa gives her review this week, plays some audio and updates listeners on podcast puppy Maggie’s condition.
Jennifer reports back on Anime Boston 2014, where she and Constantine presented Cheer Up Emo Kid: Anime That Makes You Happy. She also talks a bit about the upcoming PAX East, and this summer’s ConnectiCon 2014. Spoiler: If you wanna see Jennifer at ConnectiCon, you gotta be there Friday!
So many things on our mind this week!
- Deb Wills’ photos from Asia, which you can see on her Twitter feed. Here’s one of Jennifer’s favorites.
- The movie Frozen, which Jennifer finally saw.
- The Mickey Milers running team, which Jennifer has joined, and is working on convincing Lisa to join too!
- A moving story of an autistic boy whose parents and health care professionals capitalize on his affinity for Disney movies, with remarkable results.
The first 33 seconds of that video are the best part of Leroy and Stitch. Trust us on this.
This week, we talk about the plethora of Stitch-Based Entertainment (SBE): Lilo and Stitch; Stitch! The Movie; Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch; and Leroy and Stitch. Jennifer watched them ALL in the first few days of 2014. This is a higher concentration of SBE than we can recommend.
UPDATE: I, Cat #2, mislabeled this show and the following week’s show! This IS show #256 – NOT show #261. I have no idea where I pulled that number out of. No comments please. :)
This week, Trace talks about the highs and lows of his recent Disneyland trip that he took with Wayne. ALLEGEDLY. Then we are playing the first of three “Memory Room” talks given by Disney Legends Bob Gurr and Rolly Crump (the two other talks will be played for next weeks show).
We will also be having a little give away – make a comment here on the blog or over on our facebook page by midnight July 19th and we will enter one entry per person into the pot to win a nifty LE Tiki Room pin – oh boy!
Now here are some of those pictures Trace promised y’all:
The WatchamaGreg joins us for a discussion of Brave and Wreck It Ralph. Which deserved the Academy Award? Yes, we’re ridiculously Disney-centric and barely mention the other nominees, other than to say that more people really need to see The Pirates! Band of Misfits, an Aardman Animations tour-de-force.
- Paperman, winner of 2013 Academy Award for Best Animated Short
- YouTube channel for PES, creator of Fresh Guacamole, which we all liked better than Paperman
- Ridiculous Lucky Captain Rabbit King, Lucky Captain Rabbit King Nuggets are for the youth!
- Vance’s tweet. Yay Vance!
- ZOMG. We missed Michelle’s birthday!
So, it’s finally happened, the (sort of) un-anticipated bye. Cat #1 has been out of town and things are a bit hectic here in the Land of Which I Am Mayor, so, instead of releasing a show of me reading the phone book or an undesited presentation from the Disney Magic about making towel animals (I’ve no idea how it ends but Trace indicated it could be with him cursing some clueless wanna-be towel folding lady), we shall take the week off and rejoin you all Wednesday, March 6, 2013!
