What Makes You A Disney Fan?

Admittedly, "manly" is not the first word that comes to the minds of most when they think of the name "Disney," being most well-known as a company that produces family entertainment. But some of us…Continue

Welcome Jacque, and thanks for bringing my attention back to this group! While I'm here, I have a modest request for the members and I'd like some feedback. I'm working on a cycle of poems, possibly a book of poems, all about Disneyland. Sure, I'm a fan, but this isn't just a gushy collection of love-letters to my favorite rides. My aim is to throw some new historical, mythical, and literary perspectives on the park and its attractions. I've drafted a few poems and I think I'm off to a good start, but I'm sure I'm only scratching the surface. I'd love to hear any suggestions you gentleman might have in terms of any good fertile ground for poetry you can think of that pertains to the happiest place on earth. For instance, my Splash Mountain poem addresses the issue of slavery. My introductory poem compares Disneyland to pervailing post-Christian ideas about the afterlife. See where I'm going with this? Any thoughts you may have would be most welcome.

Thanks Tom Gunn for initiating this group. I am a keen proponent of innovation and am an admirer of innovation leaders.  I forgot about Walt. Good choice.

Anyone else looking forward to Tron Legacy?

 

I loved the visuals of the original, not so much the story, though I think the premise had a lot of potential. (hey, maybe I should write some Tron fanfic. Hmm.) I understand the successor is along the same lines. Thoughts?

Speaking of which, anyone else looking forward to Tron: Legacy?

Walt Disney's exuberance and innovative capabilities are rarely seen in CEO's today, however his pioneering spirit still remains alive at the very core of Disney. Such a shame that a great man like him had to die in his prime (he was only in his 60's), if you look at Disneyland's changes in the 12 years Walt ran the park, it seems much more rapid and innovative, now every new ride is based off the next animated animal

Getting Published

Hello All!I am writing to ask for advice.  I recently submitted a manuscript for a childrens book to Tate Publishing.  They accepted and offered a contract.  I was very excited to say the least; then they started asking for money.  It felt very fishy from that point forward.  They look like a real publisher on their website, but everything over the phone just screamed "run!".  I decided not to go with them after doing a bit of research and seeing that they had horrible reviews.Now, I'm left…See More
