What Would Disney World Look Like Abandoned?

My dad sent this to me and it's actually pretty mint. I'd like to see Splash Mountain, though. Life After People. Crisscross.

Creepy. We can kinda see that type of thing in the abandoned Disney waterpark, River Country.

Miss Piggy's Full Name

It's one of those things that you never find yourself wondering, but then you ask what is it? Well, it's Pigithia Lee. Learn something new everyday.

Buzz Lightyear Stars In Disneyland Commercials

These are awesome commercials! Disney Parks always have great ones, whether they involve Buzz, Goofy, or OneRepublic. Enjoy:

Disneyland Sets A New Track Too

For Disneyland's 2012 Half-Marathon, they've got a new track, just like Walt Disney World's 2013 Marathon. This one's cool, but I'd rather do Orlando. This one takes you through the duo parks and to where the Angels play. Interesting take, going to the Angels, but the Disney Parks is where I want to be. Maybe if Orlando's went to Amway...nah, too far.

2012 Power Hall of Fame Inductees

 JEFFSTER! The awesome band from the show 'Chuck' has made it's way into the Power Hall. Take On Me, men. Take On Me.
 Could it BE any more obvious? Of course Chandler Bing deserves a spot in the Hall. Why wouldn't he? Chananadler Bong. Actually it's MISS Chanandler Bong.
 ADAM RICHMAN. It wouldn't be the Power Hall of Fame without him. Surprising that it took him three years to get here, but nonetheless, he will forever have the biggest plaque.
 The Greendale Seven. The Study Group. Whatever you want to call them, this is the first inductee consisting of multiples, but still counting as seven. Jeff, Britta, Pierce, Annie, Shirley, Troy, and Abed.
Who's number five? Well of course it's Matt Lauer! The host of the Today Show remains to be awesome!

Don't worry people like Rondo, Swedish Chef, Bre'r Rabbit, John McBain. Your day will come. Eventually.

These awesome five inductees will join the likes of our previous recipients: Dustin Pedroia, Tim Tebow, Jason Ritter, Tomie dePaola, Goofy, Tom Hanks, Slinky Dog, Kevin James, Jim Halpert, and Jason Mraz.

Congrats! I love the Power Hall!

Season Finales!

The 2011-2012 television season has come to a close. Yes there will be spoilers. Yes it is sad we have to wait until September for new episodes. These will only be shows that I watch. Sorry, but I can't give a recap of something I don't watch. Any who, recaps (does not include series finales. Here's lookin' at you Rob Schneider):

The Simpsons: That whole Lady Gaga episode was kinda strange. It did set up a potential future Lisa/Milhouse relationship. Hopefully Seasons 24 and 25 are good and their lasts.

Bob's Burgers: I don't know why I like this show, but I do. It's humorous, and strange. That being said, the same goes for the finale. Gene was dressed as a burger monster. Odd.

Family Guy: Two words. Chicken fight.

How I Met Your Mother: I was really pleased that baby Marvin's middle name was Waitforit. It's so great. I'm also pleased that they show Barney marrying Robin, not Quinn. I don't like Quinn.

2 Broke Girls: At this rate, they'll never reach their financial goal. Unless, Martha Stewart cashes in.

Two and a Half Men: Jake has left for the army. My prediction? He'll be back in the season premiere of next year. I don't think Jake would make it in the army.

Mike and Molly: A pretty good wedding episode. Typical Chuck Lorre style. Quality. I wonder what Season Three has in store...

Raising Hope: That was pretty humorous, but it's nice to know that the serial killer is probably dead for real and Jimmy and Hope will return.

New Girl: Nick moved back in. That's good. I'm glad he didn't leave. Then again, I never expected him to.

Hawaii Five-O: Will Kono die? Will McGarrett return? Will Danno stay awesome? Testosterone!

The Middle: Axl's jobs probably won't work out. That's also the most I've ever heard Mike talk in one episode.

Modern Family: Gloria's pregnant? Hubba-wah?! Cam and Mitch didn't get their baby? Hubba-wah?! Dylan didn't get Haley, but she got college? Hubba-wah?!

Happy Endings: I cannot wait until next season. It gonna be am-ah-zing.

Rules of Engagement: Nice to know they'll be returning. Also nice to know that we can expect a little Warburtlet.

The Big Bang Theory: I seriously doubt that Wolowitz is gonna have a smooth flight. Granted he's not gonna die, but they're not gonna have it go perfectly, either. Also, I wonder how Penny and Leonard will turn out.

Parks and Recreation: Did Paul Rudd (Bobby Newport) win the race for City Council? Knope.

30 Rock: Kim Jong-Il provides some forshadowing. Will they actually have Liz and Jack together in the final season. Will Kristen Schaal die? I hope so.

Community: Easily my favorite finale of the year. Can't go wrong with 90 minutes of Chang, video games, and Starburns! I hope it'll remain awesome even without D-Harm. I doubt it, though. That makes me sad, but we'll always have that season finale montage.

The Office: Andy and David Wallace rescue Dunder Mifflin from near-certain death. Robert California is on his way out the door. Catherine Tate. She might be back. That makes me want to take a giant panda swing it around the room and throw it at Tate so her head rolls off, pops out a window and gets run over. Please say goodbye to Tate.

Looking forward to September!

Big Businesses Need Big Changes

What do Facebook, the Red Sox, and Disney all have in common? They're not what they used to be. The Red Sox are in last place. Disney gets bashed by critics. Facebook had an underwhelming stock sale. How do they change. Here's my perspective.

Disney seems like the one in the best position. I love their company and what it stands for. My biggest pet peeve of Disney's is the Disney Channel. Hannah Montana, Jonas Brothers, Wizards of Waverly Place. That's not Disney. That's just sadness. If I ran the Disney Channel, I would show some classic shorts, classic films, newer quality films, maybe even aim for a Wonderful World of Disney. Anything but Miley Cyrus. Other than that, Disney is in perfect shape. They've shut down production of Order of the Seven permanently. Remember that Snow White film with seven monks? I shudder to think what the outcome of that would have been. The new Fantasyland expansion is coming right along. If only that Magic Kingdom movie could just get made already!

The Boston Red Sox are not too far off. They've showed some signs of improvement as of late, but still, from a PR stand point? No. Not working. Here are some ideas: Get rid of Beckett. Get rid of Valentine. Bring an underrated pitcher and another man in the bullpen. That one's gotta be a big name, though. Work with Crawford and Ellsbury. Don't rush them, but work with them more than any others. Imagine that lineup? Ellsbury, Pedroia, Gonzalez, Youkilis, Ortiz, Middlebrooks, Crawford, Saltalamacchia, Aviles. Not too shabby. Cody Ross and Marlon Byrd on the bench? I wouldn't mind that. But get rid of Beckett. get rid of Valentine.

Facebook seems troubled. Maybe even beyond the point of return. Myspace was once prominent. When's the last time you checked it? Like all things, it'll fade out. Twitter is pretty prestigious right now, but it won't be forever. Migration will happen and Facebook will be dead and buried. But there's one thing that Facebook could do to at least improve it. Get rid of the new feature where if someone likes a photo, you see it. Nobody wants to see every picture that somebody likes. Nobody wants to see dead babies, injured dogs, and if you ignore you'll go to hell. Some even say 'Like if you're older than 12.' What? Just what? Get rid of it. Get rid of it now. Maybe it'll improve.

What's your take?

NBC is no longer in last place in the ratings! The 2011-2012 season ended and according to the ratings, NBC has risen from fourth out of the four big networks to third! Hoorah! Improvement! Take that ABC! In a perfect world, NBC would be first and ABC, second, with CBS in third, and FOX in last. But hey, in a perfect world, Dan Harmon still runs Community and the show has 59 million viewers per episode. Maybe in another timeline... GO NBC!!! There's hope in peacocks.

I Want To Go To There

Cal posted this awesome picture of I'm not even sure what it is, but it looks like so much fun, that'd I live there.

Can I Fry That?

Not only was it one of the Top 10 Community scenes ever, but I did it to someone on Omegle. Priceless. Great scene.

Tebow, Please

Chuck Shriner, a graduating teen in Fort Meyers, had his diploma withheld after he Tebowed on stage. At his mother's urging, he had to clean the gymnasium. Shriner said "It was worth it." Tebow said "Let him graduate." I say "Worst staff ever. You can't even appreciate the greatness of Tim Tebow."

Hope 2012

Yeah Obama can win that'd be nice, but what about Community? All of the old writers are gone along with genius, Dan Harmon. PLOT TWIST. The new show runners have met with some old writers and so far TWO of them are coming back. Two is better than none! Keep 'em coming! Thank you Megan Ganz and Tim Saccardo!

Karaoke? You Decide.

During my school trip to Washington DC (5/28 to 6/1) a karaoke contest song will be held. What song should I sing? You decide!

Driverless Cars?

Google has developed the driverless car! It combines Google Street View information with intelligence software and sends it to to a censor on top of the car which sends that to the steering wheel and wheels! That's so awesome!

Cut Out Your Darkest Timeline Beard!

In case of Darkest Timeline. Remember Troy and Abed's black goatees for the darkest timeline? Make your own! That's mint.

Suburbian Homes - Twisted

Wouldn't it be great to live in something like that? I'm pretty sure it'd be fine inside. Michael Jantzen gets the credit for designs.

17 Years Ago in Orlando

This is awesome. I'll let OMGFacts give you the deets. They describe it well:

"Alex and Donna Voutisinas thought the first time their paths had crossed was when the couple had begun working together at a hotel. As it turns out, they had come within feet of each other at Disney World when they were just toddlers! They came to this startling realization just days before their marriage while searching for baby pictures to be used at their reception. While looking at a photo of Donna’s family taken at the ‘happiest place on Earth,’ Alex saw HIS FATHER pushing a stroller in the background! As it turns out, both the bride and groom’s families had been vacationing on that same day, and they had the photographic evidence to prove it. I guess it just goes to show that “it’s a small world after all”... Most epic photobomb ever."

That's pretty neat. That's mint!

Trailer for Finding Nemo 3D

The new 3D re-release of Finding Nemo has a trailer to go with the name. I'm tempted. What's your take?

Simpsons Short?

I thought this was some kind of hoax when I saw it on Sunday. On June 13th, before the new Ice Age movie, a 4.5 minute dialogue free short titled the Longest Daycare will show. It will be in 3D with many twists and turns! Could be coolish, starring Mag

Why Are We Not Funding This?!?

These are ketchup and mustard dispensers inside red and yellow crayon containers, respectively. They're called Crayums. It's the simple things.

Journey to the Center of Hawkthorne

This comes as a surprise to not many. The 8-bit video game from the recent Community episode, Journey to the Center of Hawkthorne is being recreated by some programmers to make it an actual game. If it comes to fruition and is for Wii, I would play the hell out of it.

Patton Oswalt on Funny or Die

He joins the likes of Joel McHale and Patrick Warburton as awesome celebrities who don't get enough credit and have appeared on Funny or Die. I chuckled. Enjoy:

Cheating Death. Warburton Style.

Back in December, Rules of Engagement (David Spade, Patrick Warburton, Oliver Hudson, Adhir Kaylan, Biana Kajlich, Megyn Price) seemed about as good as cancelled and dead, but CBS said hold on. It disappeared for a while, but returned not too long ago and now it's been renewed for a seventh season! How about that? Risen from the ashes! Glad to hear it!

I Read 450

According to an eReader Speed-Reading test, I read 283 words per minute, so I'm faster than 13% of the national average. I read faster than 8th grade students and a little bit less than average adults. According to it, I could read War and Peace in 34 hours, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in 4 hours, and The Lord of the Rings in 28 hours. How about you?

Chris Rock With the Photo!

Stan van GONEdy

Ever since I took an interest in the Orlando Magic (2008) Stan van Gundy has been the head coach and Dwight Howard has been the center. It became clear that one of them was gonna have to give and go out the door into the streets of Orlando. I wished both could stay, but I'd rather see Dwight. And yes Stan van was fired, along with the Magic general manager. Happy trails!

Tebow To The Next Level

I know I say that he goes to the next level a lot, but come on. He's gotta be on Level 100 by now. Madden 13's creative director announced via Twitter that the game, which is scheduled for release in August, will feature Tebowing. Picture it. Tebow runs for touchdown. Tebow Tebows. Can Tebow be used for every part of speech? I'll exclude articles for the purpose of the quality of the following statement: The Tebow Tebower Tebowed to the Tebowing Tebow Tebow. With articles? Tebow Tebow Tebower Tebowed Tebow Tebow Tebowing Tebow Tebow. Yes. Tebow.

Warriors Moving On Down

The Golden State Warriors have never really been clear on their location. After all, Golden State is California's nickname. There's no city named Golden State. But as facts would have it, they have been in Oakland since 1966. Changes are coming though. At the moment, the Warriors play in the oldest arena in the NBA. An announcement from earlier this week says that they plan to move to San Francisco during the 2017-2018 season. I've never minded the Warriors. Maybe they keep their Golden State name. San Fran is in California just as well as Oakland is.

You'd Need To Be Pretty Rich

Granted, not as rich as a golden swan dive, but to have a shower you just lay down in? Are the rich really that lazy? That's a sterotype. I'm sorry. But come on.

Mark Zuckerbeg Has Changed His Relationship Status From Engaged To Married

At least, that's what it'll say on his Facebook page. The Facebook creator has tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Priscilla Chan. To be honest, I only posted this because of the whole relationship status gag.

Airplane Music

There was a 20-minute delay on a flight so the Lemon Bucket Orkestra put on a little show for the passengers. That's mint.

Rainforest Cafe Changes

Some changes will be coming to Downtown Disney's Rainforest Cafe. When we went, it was closed and blocked, but we couldn't tell why. Now it's open, but still being remodeled. It seems that the new exterior will have a volcano that releases 'Disney lava' according to my dad. Haha, it'll be cool.

Dan Harmon Fired

This is so very sad to me. Sony has fired Dan Harmon as the showrunner of Community. They said he could stay on as a consulting producer, but he has showed that he has no interest in staying on if it's not in his control. Two writers from Happy Endings will come on and be the showrunners. Happy Endings is a good show, so they have a chance to make it good, but without Dan Harmon it will never be the same. This has been Dan Harmon's show since day one and they just fired him. Think about that. This was Dan Harmon's creation and he loved it to death and then suddenly a company can just come in and take it from him? I know he didn't sign a contract, but according to Dan, they never contacted him. How could he do it if they never offered. It's clear that they didn't want him there, but everyone else does. I'll admit it, hell, even Dan Harmon's admitted it, he is a conceited bum. I love Dan Harmon, but it's true. He's admitted it, but that doesn't make Community any less Harmon. He's great, but he has issues, but that's what makes him a human being. A Greendale Human Being. Can't Sony realize that maybe Community will lose more viewers and its artistic integrity if Dan Harmon is gone? He's the one who made Community what it is. He is Abed. He's Pierce. He's Jeff. He's every character. That's the motivation. That was his inspiration. Every part of him is a part of the show and the parts of the show, we can all relate to. We all know a Britta, and a Shirley, and a Troy, and a Starburns. We all know those types of people and that is what he captured. Even the writers have been leaving. Not a single one remains from the first episode. They had the connection with Community and its fanbase, but the other writes won't have that. They won't have the connection. That's what makes it different, that's what makes it wrong. With the show Friends, it was awesome and hilarious during all ten of its seasons, but the spinoff, Joey, was so horrible. Fans of Friends want to think that Joey never happened. I don't want to see that happen with Community. I don't want fans to think that Season Four never existed. I don't want Community to ever get cancelled, but we have to come to grips with that the possibility has increased. The new writers and Sony's goal is to make Community more normal, Big Bang-esque, and get more viewers and ratings. Viewers and ratings would be nice, but don't change the show. I'd rather have four seasons and a movie and Dan Harmon than ratings, six seasons, and no Dan Harmon, because that would not be Community. Six seasons and a movie would be awesome, but not without Dan Harmon. Isn't it sad that Dan's vision of how Jeff meets his father will never come to fruition? None of this could have happened without Dan Harmon. There would be no Dreamatorium, star-shaped sideburns, no Greendale, no Abed, no Remedial Chaos Theory. There would be no Community. And it isn't Community without Dan Harmon.


Jeff Winger Speeches

The Community Tumblr has posted two Jeff Winger speeches. One from the Season 3 finale and the other from the pilot episode. They're pretty good. I enjoy reading them. Thought I'd share.

Season 3 Finale: "Your honor, I have no closing statement because I’m throwing the case. No, no, it’s okay. It’s fine, don’t worry. My client, Shirley Bennett, my friend of three years, she told me that it was okay. She said what I want was more important. She’s right—right? I mean, guys like me, we’ll tell you there’s no right or wrong—there’s no real truths. And as long as we all believe that, guys like me can never lose. Because the truth is, I’m lying when I say there is no truth. The truth is—the pathetically, stupidly, inconveniently, obvious truth is, helping only ourselves is bad and helping each other is good. Now I just wanted to get out of here, pass biology and be a lawyer again instead of helping Shirley. That was bad. And my former colleague wanted so badly to keep his rich client that he just asked me to roll over in exchange for my old job. So, I guess we all walked in here pretty bad, but now Shirley’s gone good. Shirley’s helping me. It’s that easy. You just stop thinking about what’s good for you and start thinking about what’s good for someone else. And you can change the whole game with one move." -Jeff

Pilot: "What makes humans different from other animals? We’re the only species on earth that observes Shark Week. Sharks don’t even observe Shark Week, but we do. For the same reason I can pick up this pencil, tell you it’s name is Steve and go like this [breaks pencil] and part of you dies just a little bit on the inside. Because people can connect with anything. We can sympathize with a pencil, we can forgive a shark, and we can give Ben Affleck and Academy Award for screenwriting. People can find the good in just about anything but themselves. Look at me. It’s clear to all of you that I am awesome. But I could never admit that. That would make me an ass. But what I can do is see what makes Annie awesome. She’s driven. We need driven people or the lights go out and the ice cream melts. And Pierce, we need guys like Pierce. This guy has wisdom to offer. We should listen to him some time. We wouldn’t regret it. And Shirley, Shirley has earned our respect. Not as a wife, not as a mother, but as a woman. Don’t test her on that, because that thing about the jukebox was too specific to be improvised. And Troy. Who cares if Troy thinks he’s all that? Maybe he is. You think astronauts go to the moon because they hate oxygen? No, they’re trying to impress their high school’s prom king. And Abed. Abed’s a shaman. You ask him to pass the salt, he gives you a bowl of soup. Because you know what, soup is better. Abed is better. You are all better than you think you are. You are designed not to believe it when you hear it from yourself. I want you to look to the person to your left. Sorry. Look at the person sitting next to you. I want you to extend to that person the same compassion you extend to sharks, pencils and Ben Affleck. I want you to say to that person, “I forgive you.” You’ve just stopped being a study group. You have become something unstoppable.
I hereby pronounce you a Community."

Starburns, Evil Abed, 8-Bit, And More!

The Community season finale occurred just last night, and may I say, it was their greatest season finale of all time! It just goes to show you that they don't always have to be paintball (despite their awesomeness), it was a full 90 MINUTES of this blessed show!! It left me wishing that 30 Rock's Season Finale was either last week or the week after and we could have 120 minutes of Community. I would not have minded.

Part One: The Greendale Seven go into Cornelius Hawthorne's video game to get Pierce's inheritance. What ensues is a virtual lady friend for Abed, Annie and Shirley's murder of the blacksmith and his wife, and Pierce eventually giving his inheritance to his long lost brother who was also playing the game. The most hilarious episode of the night by far! Great stuff! Troy and Abed shooting laava!

Part Two: The Chang uprising takes over Greendale and the Greendale Seven plot to rescue the Dean. They execute an elaborate heist which includes a scenario where it seems like the plan is failing, but it's just a cover. Chang is overthrown and the Greendale Seven are eventually reinstated. However, to continue the plan, Troy had to sacrifice his time with friends and at Greendale and join John Goodman at the Air Conditioning Repair School.

Part Three: Troy is still at the ACRS and Abed is succumbing to loneliness and his nemesis from the Darkest Timeline, Evil Abed. Britta tries to cure him, but instead Evil Abed becomes Abed. Jeff is trying to settle the case between who is the rightful owner of the new sandwich shop, with Subway on the subWAY out. Is it Shirley or Pierce? Meanwhile, John Goodman's character, Vice Dean Laybourne dies in an accident that was a rookie mistake. Troy believes that one of his teachers killed him and he fights him with air conditioning repair until there is a yield...or death. Troy fixes his air conditioner and saves the other guy from dying, but not before he confesses to killing the voice of Sulley. Troy is released from the ACRS, but Abed is still Evil. He has convinced Britta to dye her hair, just like in the Darkest Timeline, and he is en route to cut off Jeff's arm, just like in the Darkest Timeline. However, Jeff settles the dispute between Shirley, Pierce, and a former lawyer colleague who tattled on Jeff, with a moving speech about sacrifice. This warms Evil Abed up and he sets the saw down. Back in the hallway, Abed is telling about what happened with Evil Abed when Troy shows up and hugs Abed. This is when it seems like Dan Harmon prepared for a series finale.

The show's theme song plays while sequences are shown. Shirley and Pierce opened their sandwich shop with a satisfied Dean nearby. Jeff has passed his biology final. Abed has taken off the evil beard and the Dreamatorium, but instead has made it portable. Troy moves his things back into the apartment, with Annie and Britta's help. Chang is seen crawling around in the vents of City College and he spots the Dean of City College planning an attack on Greendale. And PLOT TWIST: a man is shaving in the mirror and when he turns around, it is..........STARBURNS complete with blonde hair and well, star burns. Yes, it seemed like Harmon prepared, but the best thing about it all, is not just the heartwarming final scene of Season Three, but the fact that there are 13 more episodes (possibly more) to look forward to next year!


Bullock/McCarthy Buddy Cop Film

Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock have teamed up with Bridesmaids director, Paul Fieg, to create a buddy cop film which will have McCarthy be a Boston cop and Bullock be a FBI agent and they try to take down a Russian mobster. Could be coolish.

I'll Do 52.4 Miles For The Scenery

Half of 52.4 is 26.2. 26.2 is the amount of miles in the marathon. You know what 26.2 covers in Orlando/Buena Vista? Down the lane to the Magic Kingdom, up and around past Animal Kingdom, down to the World of Sports, back up to Hollywood Studios, past Downtown Disney, around Epcot, a little further, and fin. Wouldn't that be so AWESOME to run? What scenery there would be! And you can listen to Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah as you jog!

Wanna Shower?

You've all showered with the normal stuff, you know, water, soap, body wash, shampoo, loofahs, the usual. What about Sprite? Yeah. Sprite.

Daisuke Shut Down

I had this funny, but awesome feeling that Daisuke would return from Tommy John's surgery and be our white horse riding savior and rescue the Red Sox, but apparently, no longer. A setback has pushed Daisuke back a ways and we'll have to wait some more to see Matsuzaka come back to the mound.

Toy Story 2 Was Almost Lost

Someone accidentally typed in the code to that told the drives to erase everything in 20 seconds. Most of the film was gone. How did they save it?

Desperate Housewives

The series finale of Desperate Housewives occurred on Sunday. The depth will not be as deep as the likes of say, Chuck, because it has faded in quality, in my mind. I used to like it, used to be one of my favorites, until


Well, now you can't say that I didn't warn you. ...until they came up with stupid story lines like Tom and Lynette's divorce or Mike's death, etc. But still the finale somewhat made amends. The first half had story lines of Lynette trying to get Tom back, Lee preparing Susan to move, and Bree's murder trial. Renee and Ben had provided some trial setbacks. Plot twist: Mrs. McCluskey overheard Bree and Trip, lawyer and Chuck Bartowski's father (how many Chuck references can we get into a Desperate Housewives post? Nerd Herd. Jeffster. Buy More. Sorry.), arguing about letting Gaby or Carlos go to the stand for Ramon Sanchez's murder. Instead, McCluskey asks Trip to go to the stand and then she confesses to killing Sanchez, Gaby's bad stepfather! Bree gets off and McCluskey gets off as well due to her old age and declining health. At the end of the first half, Lynette goes to get ice and Tom stops her in the road and confesses his love, a reluctant-at-first Lynette eventually does the same and they kiss, you know, the whole camera swirling bit. Yadda yadda yadda. Second half:

Julie is pregnant, Renee and Ben are getting married, Gaby got promoted, Lynette got a job offer from Katherine, Susan is still moving, and Bree and Trip are arguing because of Trip still trying to get Gaby to testify. Well, after some limo and wedding dress turmoil, Renee and Ben do get married and Bob and Lee deliver the toast. Well, during the reception, Porter rushes in and gets Tom and Lynette to join him en route to the birth of his and Julie's child. Susan gets an offer on her house, Gaby gets fired, Lynette takes the job. Here's the most important scenario of Part Two, however. Mrs. McCluskey has Roy play Johnny Mathis' Wonderful, Wonderful! over and over again. As the song plays it shows one life coming into the world, Julie's kid, and one life exiting. Yes, sadly, one of the only characters I liked on the show, succumbed to lung cancer. McCluskey, who has been there since Season One, died. It was quite sad. She was cool. Anyhow, Lynette, Susan, Bree, and Gaby all play poker one last time and they all vow that it won't be the last, but it was. Lynette and Tom move to New York for her job and they have an apartment over Central Park where she yells at her six grandchildren (probably all 'P' names.) Bree and Trip move to Kentucky where Bree joins the State Legislature. Gaby and Carlos move to Los Angeles where Gaby gets a show on the Home Shopping Network. Susan and MJ move in with Julie and give the house to a mysterious new housewife (Wisteria Lane won't long for turmoil) with a box and they take one last drive on the Lane. All of the people who have died on the show watch them drive and the show ends.

Not yet, though: McCluskey, portrayed by Kathryn Joosten, who won two Emmys on the show and has survived lung cancer twice, sends a message about lung cancer awareness.

Good ending.

The Strange Life (And Death) of Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi

Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi suffered a heart attack in the Egyptian village, Naga al-Simman. He was pronounced dead at 28 years old. The death certificate doctor found it odd that his body was still warm. When observed, they found that he was still alive. He woke up at his funeral and his mother fainted! The funeral wasn't wasted, they turned it into a life party! I like that story, despite the creepiness factor.

Liking Things On Facebook

Yep, it's reached a new level. Brazilian retailers, C&A, has different articles of clothing on hangers. What's on the hangers you ask? Why, it's the amount of times that that clothing article has been liked on Facebook, of course! Why wouldn't you be able to like things on clothing hangers. It makes perfect sense, right? Heh, not really.

The Abandoned Country of Rivers

Just kidding. It's called River Country. Disney opened a water park called River Country in 1976. It closed in 2001 and then permanently closed in 2005. It had rides, a lake, a kiddie pool, and it was on Bay Lake near the  Contemporary Resort and Fort Wilderness. It was meant to resemble an old-fashioned swimming hole. Here's the weird thing though:

It's closed, but nothing has been done with it. It rots and wears away there. People can still get in. It's as simple as hopping the fence. The water bubblers still work. The bathrooms still function. The signs are still up. Towels lay tossed on the ground. Tubes sit on what used to be a water slide. THE MUSIC STILL PLAYS. This is quite creepy and I don't even know how it came to be this way and if Disney will ever do something with it. It's eerie. It's creepy. It's...cool.

Finding Neverland Meets Who Framed Roger Rabbit

At least, that's what Johnny Depp is saying what the Dr. Seuss biopic will be like. Depp will portray the legendary author and will interact with Seuss characters like The Cat in the Hat, the Lorax, and Sam-I-Am. Could be coolish!

New TV Land Look

TV Land has become less about classics and more about washed-up character actors on sitcoms. I enjoy Hot in Cleveland, but the rest seem to be misses. I suppose they're getting with the times and this new logo confirms that, but it's not quite right.

Happy Mother's Day!

A big thanks to my mother on this Sunday! I appreciate you!

NBC's Fall Schedule

NBC released their fall schedule today. Comedy reigns at NBC. Not only will they have a comedy block on Thursday, but they'll have it on Tuesdays and Fridays as well! Here's the gist on NBC shows that I don't watch:

  • Awake was cancelled
  • Smash was pushed to midseason
  • The Voice will premier in the fall
  • Grimm will be back on Fridays
  • Rock Center with Brian Williams will return
  • Law & Order: SVU will come back for Tuesdays
  • Whitney has been moved to 8:00 on Fridays
  • Up All Night will show at 8:30 on Thursdays
  • Dateline NBC will be on 10PM on Fridays
On shows I haven't had the chance to watch yet, because they're new:

  • JJ Abrams' 'Revolution' will premiere on 10PM on Mondays
  • Go On, with Matthew Perry, will start an hour comedy block on Tuesday, followed by The New Normal
  • Animal Practice and Guys with Kids will be on from 8-9 on Wednesdays
  • Chicago Fire: 10PM on Wednesdays
On shows I do watch:

  • Parenthood was renewed for Season Four
  • 30 Rock's final 13-episode season will be at 8:00 on Thursdays
  • The Office's likely last season will be at 9:00 on Thursdays
  • Parks and Recreation will return for Thursdays at 9:30
  • Sunday will feature football once again
  • Community has been moved to 8:30 on Fridays
Here's the over/under, negative/positive on Community:


Friday night is a 'death slot.' Remember last year? Chuck was renewed for 13 episodes at a 8:00 time slot on Fridays. Chuck ended in January. This makes me nervous for Community. Neither Dan Harmon nor Chevy Chase have been confirmed for Season 4.


The NBC boss said that in no way do they want to cancel Community. Instead he said that they want to create a new block because Grimm was a breakout hit on Fridays and Community will lead it in. Community fans will follow the show wherever it goes.

We can only hope for

Six seasons and a movie.

The Haunted Mansion Is Moving Right Along

It seems that Guillermo del Toro's reboot is coming along faster than expected. It seemed that it would be ready for release in 2014 after Jon Favreau's The Magic Kingdom, but the date was moved up to 2013 not too long ago, a teaser trailer was released, and now a teaser poster! This is awesome! I guess it can hold me over til the Magic Kingdom. Haha, lookin' good!

Dr. Shaq!

Shaquielle O'Neal left college early for the NBA and he went back in 2000 and got his Bachelor's Degree. Shaq enrolled at Barry in Miami after his 2006 championship and spent the rest of his NBA days and a year of retirement getting his doctorate in human resource development with a 3.8 GPA! Pretty impressive, doc.
