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

Answered prayers

We frequently hear stories of how an extremely important need was "saved" after prayer, such asShe was near death but we prayed for her and she lived.Our marriage almost fell apart but we prayed and God saved our marriage.My job was nearing being taken from me but we prayed and God saved my job.But if we think of God as a Father, any parent does not always say, "Yes" when a request is made.  Sometimes a parent says, "No," and sometimes a parent says, "Not now," and sometimes a parent says,…See More

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him
