hollybrooke: (Mother Knows Best)


Good parenting tip: Don't lock your kids up in towers their whole lives. (Mother Gothel's expression when she says "THE PLAGUE!" cracks me up every time.)

Good parenting tip: Just because a baby has magical hair does not give you free license to swipe them from their cribs.

Good parenting tip: Don't lie to your kidnapped kid about the big, scary world outside to discourage them from wanting out and thus being found

Because no matter what you do, the first person she meets, she'll take off with them. And the good girls ALWAYS go for the bad boys. It's a fact.


Happy Mothers' Day!

Some things of interest did happen while I was AFI (or "away from Internet," if you will).

--I got a new DirecTV receiver!

--I lost a toenail! It freaked me out, and it didn't really hurt. I just started noticing this white spot on my left middle toenail, and then the toenail started coming up and separating from the base, and....yeah. And the thing that freaks me out the most is that I have no idea how this happened. I didn't exactly bang my foot against anything, or drop anything on it, and after she saw it, Mom told me this wasn't like I was developing a fungus on my foot or something. (She would know.) But it's slowly growing back.

--...............................I did it. I got my hair cut.

It's a little shorter than I anticipated, but the best part is that all of the damaged stuff (like a little over a foot of dyed, fried crap full of split ends) is GONE now. It's about shoulder length now, and pretty much back to my natural brown shade.

Then I came home from the hairdresser, and I found my mother had withered away!

Then my boyfriend died!

Then I cried!

Then he came back to life!

--Speaking of which, amongst all of the DVDs I've acquired, of course I got Tangled. And a gripe, if I may? I thought Disney would include better special features with it than what ended up on the Blu-Ray. Did they even bother to animate anything for the first "When Will My Life Begin?" reprise? And I thought that they'd go a little more in-depth for the behind-the-scenes featurette. I feel a little let-down.

--And like I said, I've been REALLY getting back into my artwork. Eventually, I'll get this stuff loaded up onto DeviantArt. (Give me time, give me time...)

This will end up being a special feature on the Tangled Blu-Ray/DVD, but it needs to be shared. I knew I had read about it opening in the traditional "storybook" format and I was all psyched up for it, considering Disney animation hasn't done a "storybook" opening since The Sword in the Stone.



Dang, I wish they had stuck with this. If there was one thing I didn't like about the movie, I would go with the fact that they had Flynn narrating the opening. I can overlook it, but still...


32 more days till the DVD release!
hollybrooke: (It's complicated.)


Found @ HellYeahTangled.tumblr.com (I love that site)

IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.

And then there's this little gem from HellYesHipsterDisney.tumblr.com



Yeah, Flynn kind of gives off this elitist college student vibe when you throw some glasses on him. It works.



In other news, MORE SNOW?!! You've got to be kidding me. Yeah, it's only 2 to 6 inches, but seriously, snow? I thought we were over. Am I going to have to get a restraining order against you?
hollybrooke: (Flynn Rider RAWR)


....I can't quit laughing. Flynn's face. Priceless.

43 freaking days left till it comes out on DVD!!
hollybrooke: (It's time to paint!)
Once again, Hunter is thinking about breaking up with his girlfriend. I don't know how many times I've heard this in the last year (maybe four or five; he starts getting that itch every few months) and how he never follows through on it, though. And this may sound mean and very blunt, but if he's seriously going to do it, then he needs to shit or get off the pot. I'm not saying that because I don't like Jessica (I do, actually; she's a sweet girl). I'm saying this because Hunter's been kind of dancing along that line for the last year and talks about it, but he never does it. If he's going to do it, then do it and quit stringing her along.

And it's not like he doesn't love her anymore, but from what he told me last night about it, he feels that their respective priorities have changed. He wants to finish up school and do what he wants to do (hospitality management, I guess; he wants to run a hotel or work on a cruise ship or something...how he came to that, I have no clue, but he wants to do it, so I support him on it). And she just dropped out of school and wants to take classes to learn a trade and be a massage therapist. She was majoring in psychology and wanted to work with special needs kids, but to be honest, I think her current job working with special needs kids is starting to take its toll on her. Hunter's kind of ticked that she won't at least try to finish up and get her degree at the very least. But he also feels that she's pushing for them to get married and have a kid, and he's so not ready for that. He just turned 21, for crying out loud. He wants to live his life.

More behind the cut, because I'm just rambling and having a epiphany in the process. )

So I scanned a few things from The Art of Tangled because they're amazing and I have to share:

hollybrooke: (How YOU doin'?)

Good Timing by ~zammap on deviantART


And BTW, my "Mother Knows Best? Bitch Please" macro got reblogged at hellyeahtangled.tumblr.com. I didn't get the credit I deserve, but it doesn't really bother me. I'm just tickled it made it onto another Tangled community of sorts. :P

And go follow @FlynnRider on Twitter. You won't regret it. His haikus are hilarious.
hollybrooke: (How YOU doin'?)
I haven't laughed this hard in a LONG time:

hollybrooke: (New Disney Opening)
Here's an extra for your Tangled countdown fix, today!

SONG SAMPLES ON AMAZON.COM!!!!

I want to hear more of "Mother Knows Best," dammit! And I've heard the Rapunzel version of the Healing Incantation; I want to hear Mother Gothel's version. (I've heard it sounds downright sinister when she sings it.) And I truly think Disney made the best choice going with Mandy Moore over Kristen Chenowith.

hollybrooke: (Rapunzel and Pascale)


Love his big googly eyes. I hear Mother Gothel doesn't exactly approve of indoor pets, so I predict LOTS of hide-and-seek from Pascal in this movie.




SIXTEEN DAYS! That's, like, two weeks and two days!
hollybrooke: (Too much hair!)


This was done by Alicechan on DeviantArt. Just lovely.




SEVENTEEN DAYS!!
hollybrooke: (Frying Pan)
Time for your daily Tangled countdown fix, from Disneyland park!



EIGHTEEN DAYS LEFT!!
hollybrooke: (And yet ANOTHER Rapunzel icon)
Your daily Tangled countdown fix! This was good for a chuckle.



Wow, Rapunzel, you don't think you've brushed your hair enough? *giggle*



So cute. I already love her.

NINETEEN DAYS LEFT!!!
hollybrooke: (And yet ANOTHER Rapunzel icon)
....since I won't be online tomorrow after I get off of work. (It's a Kevin-day.)

Your Tangled countdown fix for November 4, 2010:




GAAAH, I don't know if this is a Disney park face character or not, but DAMN, Flynn is hot.
hollybrooke: (Too much hair!)
And for today's daily Tangled countdown fix. He makes all the panties drop. He's Flynn Rider, ladies.



Yum. If it's wrong to lust after an animated character, then I don't wanna be right. :P
hollybrooke: (Default)
Instead of a video today, I give you a bit of artwork done by Rapunzel herself (or rather, "conceptual art" of Rapunzel's artwork done by Disney animation):



Dying to see what other stuff she has painted inside her tower.

22 days left!
hollybrooke: (another Rapunzel pic)
Your daily Tangled countdown fix!

I'm not going to lie. I'm dying to see what kind of villain Mother Gothel will turn out to be. (DON'T CLICK IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED! THERE'S A MILD SPOILER IN THERE ABOUT HER FATE!)





Only 23 days left! *squee!*
