Planes: Dancing Directly Adjacent To Buzz Lightyear

Planes: Dancing Directly Adjacent To Buzz Lightyear

The staff at this inflatable-bouncy-stuff-ball-pit place would really like my kid to think she’s dancing with Buzz Lightyear, just like Disney would like us to believe that Planes is a real Pixar movie.

Actually, the staff would like the little boy celebrating his birthday to think it’s really Buzz Lightyear, whereas with my daughter, they would probably prefer if she stuck with the party she’s supposed to be attending rather than horning in on yet another little kid’s moment in the spotlight. It’s bad enough that Stella already crashed a little girl’s birthday dance earlier, repeatedly cutting in on every kid who tried to dance with Hello Kitty. The remarkably patient employee sweating inside the Hello Kitty costume would indulge Stella for a moment, give her a patient pat on the head, and then turn to another kid, only to meet Stella, who had rushed around to grab Kitty’s paws yet again.

Hey, Let’s Talk About The Trailer for “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”

In which Jason and Kristina of Knuckle Salad discuss the trailer for the movie “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”

J: Wow, the trailer for The Hobbit has all kinds of stuff going on it. Pigs in harnesses, dwarves with spider webs in their beards, threadbare antique furniture—it’s essentially the video for the Nine Inch Nails song “Closer”, if Trent Reznor had eaten second breakfast on his eleventy-first birthday. The dwarves in this movie are short, hairy and have enormous ears. Looks like there’s going to be some a cappella dwarf singing as well. I usually feel uncomfortable if someone starts singing in front of me without musical accompaniment, but the other dwarves just put down their pipes and start singing along like the cast of Glee, if everyone on Glee was my grandfather.
