“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat!" (Or Is It Little Goat?)

I read this article in the Wall Street Journal today about how 'Alice in Wonderland' translates into different languages. If you thought Lewis Carroll's work was trippy in English, you should see what happens to one of my favorite quotes by the Dormouse.

Like me, you might laugh at the Italian version, but wow. The Slovenians are really in a Wonderland of their own.

Art of Disney Animation - Sketchbook Ornament Collection 2015

This is the second year the Disney Store has offered a limited release ornament series that is revealed and available each month. It's brilliant. You have to check back often to collect them all, and they never announce when the ornament is released.

I'm bummed I missed Ichabod Crane, but I was able to get Philoctetes last month. Today, I just randomly checked out the site and found that one of my favorite Fantasia 2000 segments, Rhapsody in Blue, was available. I'm lucky to have picked up Duke, Rachel and Alex!

Next month is Cheshire Cat, so you know that one will sell out immediately.

These Shirts Are So Ghoul!

I tell you, TeeFury is an addiction. It's like eating potato chips; you can't stop with just one. If you're not familiar with TeeFury, they feature a different shirt, or two shirts, per day. You get them at a discounted rate. After that, you pay a little more. They have some really talented artists that submit work.

Right now, they are featuring a BeastPop Takeover Collection in one of their many galleries. Below are three of my favorites.

By far, my favorite are the Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion.

My next favorite is Sally as a Haunted Mansion maid.

My least favorite is Jack as a Haunted Mansion butler.  It's probably because his face reminds me of Jim Carrey in 'The Mask.' But I love the concept.

These shirts won't be around forever, so pick them up before they retire!
