Can we be honest for a moment? Big Hero 6 looks like a pile of shit. Who’s with me? Wreck-It Ralph was similarly a pile of shit. I took my kids to see Frozen in the theatre a month before Christmas and figured the loan I had to take out to experience a movie in the theatre would be worth the transcendent experience that seeing a movie in the theatre often is but can we all just agree that Frozen was also a pile of shit?
Alf Clausen wrote better music for the first ten seasons of The Simpsons than Disney ever made after Howard Ashman died.
when I dug the deep grave
for her father’s body
through pure glacial sand
I came across one stone
at the very bottom
and deep dark orange
ripe as a fallen apricot
I brought it to the surface
kept it on my dashboard for miles
wherever I went
she never knew where it came from
I never said

It was then I knew I’d had enough,
Burned my credit card for fuel
Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
And my suitcase in my hand.
How I lost my friends I still don’t understand.
