So Steve Dobbs, a retired aeronautical engineer, built his own private version of Disneyland in his backyard called Dobbsland, complete with a …
Watching dry ice sublimate (turn into gas instead of liquid) still manages to make me feel like a kid again. The kind of kid who is unsure of the difference between science and magic. Okay, not quite ... I’m old now and it’s impossible to ever look at things so innocently anymore. But when I see the carbon dioxide gas…
The Washington Post has a fascinating article on the work of linguists who are looking at every line of dialogue from Disney princess movies and analyzing them for their representations of women. The results are mixed, to say the least.

When you’re trying to build brand loyalty, it’s best to snag consumers when they’re still kids. So Philips is teaming up with Disney to expand its lighting line with a series of glowing characters called SoftPals that kids can use as night lights right in bed with them.
What happens at the Symfrozium, a one-day academic conference on the movie Frozen? More than you’d think. Dorian Lynskey at The Guardian recaps the many different, but scrupulously polite, views of the movie.
My freezer sometimes acts as an inescapable frozen pit where food goes to disappear. If I don’t want to think about it, just toss it in the freezer. It’s a convenient time stopper. But it’s not forever. Here’s a useful infographic that shows you just how long you can stick different types of food inside the freezer…
Definitely the correct choice.
Not shocking: Frozen 2 is officially in the works. Will it be theatrical or straight to video? Will it contain a hit song that becomes woven into the cultural DNA of a generation? Does it even matter, because we already know that this movie in any form will rake in eleventy billion dollars?
When your body expires and your bones turn to dust, Frozen will remain. When all that's left of your legacy is cut down by the cold scythe of time, Frozen will remain. When the sky is darkened, the land barren and the seas dried up, Frozen will remain. Here's a trailer for Frozen Fever.

People have gone down the Niagara Falls (which is already nuts) but Red Bull says that ice climber Will Gadd is the first person crazy enough to go up the falls. As in he climbed a damn waterfall.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Frozen is over, and you know what? It feels good. It feels really good. I like the way it ended and I'm glad it's over. We all won last night and together we will come out stronger people.
Though parodying Frozen doesn't exactly pack the same punch as it would have, I don't know, months and months ago, it's still makes me giggle to see Homer as a snowman. The other bits of 'The Couch Gag Before Christmas' is basically the same run as last year's. But who wouldn't want a candy cane bong?
