Off Topic / Re: Are estate sales scary? *update in last post*
« on: September 21, 2015, 11:28:40 AM »
I've only been to a couple estate sales (one of which a family friend had earlier this year), but they were on the small side and weren't heavily advertised, so there wasn't a line that I had to go through in order to see everything and granted both sales didn't have anything particularly special (at least in terms of what I wanted to find), but I did come home with a few things that caught my eye/fancy. I would like to go to another estate sale someday, especially if there are any toys and/or antiques that I'm looking to add to my varied collections.

I'm very glad that you were able to score some Ponies at the estate sale you went to Haruna, and that the experience wasn't at all what you thought it might be. It was nice that some people asked you questions about Ponies considering how long you were at the Pony table examining everything for such a long period of time. =D

Squee, great topic! I absolutely heart Disney! :heart: :heart: :heart:

1. What is the first Disney movie you remember watching?

Toughie. As a preschooler-kindergarten I remember watching The Little Mermaid, The Brave Little Toaster, Cinderella, and Bedknobs & Broomsticks. So... no idea which one was the first. *Facepalm*

2. What was your favorite Disney movie as a kid?

101 Dalmatians. I must have gone through 2 copies of it on VHS as a kid.

3. Who was your favorite Disney character as a kid?

I don't remember if I had an exact favorite or not. *Facepalm*

4. What is your favorite Disney movie now?

Currently it's a tie between Tangled and Frozen. DON'T JUDGE ME!!!

5. Who is your favorite character now?

Too many to list! xD Seriously, I could spend all day listing them all, so I'm not going to bother to try.

6. Who is your favorite Disney villain?

Maleficent has always been my number one favorite. Hades from Hercules is a close second.

7. Which Disney movie do you think has the best music?

In my opinion, the following movies have the best music... Tarzan, Dinosaur, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen, Mary Poppins, and Bambi.

8. What's your favorite Disney song?

Too many to list! xD

9. Have you been to any of the Disney parks? Do you have a favorite memory you'd like to share?

I've been to Walt Disney World a total of 4 times in my youth. The first time was in 1996; my family won a 3-night, 4-day trip there (I was in the 5th grade then). Obviously we didn't have enough time to do everything and we ended up falling in love with the place, so we came back in 1997 during the resort's 25th Anniversary celebration. We came back again in 1998 and this time we brought my grandma along (but she wasn't too impressed). Our last trip was in 2000, right when I was starting high school.

Out of all those trips, our second trip -- during the resort's 25th Anniversary celebration -- was the one I remembered the most fondly. It was a very magical trip, I still get chills just hearing the "Remember the Magic" song (plus it evokes the memory of my mom and I participating in the Remember the Magic parade; we volunteered to play Simon Says with Aladdin's Genie, though I wished that we volunteered to dance with Cinderella instead). If I could go back in time for anything, it would be to relive the magic that was Walt Disney World's 25th Anniversary celebration. *Dreamy sigh*

10. If you got the chance to go to a Disney park now, which one do you think you'd pick and what would you most want to do there?


*Clears throat*

It's obvious that I want to go back to Walt Disney World, as they have made soooooo many changes since I was last there; I especially want to see the New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. I would also like to go to the original Disneyland in California, just to see what it's like (and compare/contrast it to Walt Disney World). Lastly, sometime before I die, I would really love to go to both Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris, especially Disneyland Paris as they have the most beautiful Disney castle out of all the Disney parks in the world.

What's your favorite underrated Disney film? (Credit: Bekuno)

There's quite a handful of underrated Disney movies that are among my favorites, but my all-time favorite underrated Disney movie is The Black Cauldron. True, it is a bit on the dark side and isn't the most faithful adaptation of Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain books (which I've yet to read in their entirety), but... I love it. Eilonwy and Gurgi are my favorite characters from that movie.

What Disney film did you not like growing up? (Credit: Bekuno)

The ones that I cannot stand are Wreck-It Ralph, Valiant and A Bug's Life.

New Question!: Is there any Disney film that you haven't seen but would like to?

Oh trust me, there are tons of Disney movies -- mostly the older ones that I'm sure the majority of you haven't even heard of -- that I haven't seen but want to see. Some of the ones that I haven't seen but would like to see are... So Dear to My Heart, The Sword and the Rose, The Living Desert, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, The Vanishing Prairie, Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier, The African Lion, Davy Crockett and the River Pirates, Perri, Jungle Cat, The Monkey's Uncle, Charlie the Lonesome Cougar, The Cat from Outer Space, The Watcher in the Woods, Tron, Brother Bear, all the Chronicles of Narnia movies, Enchanted, both National Treasure movies, Wall-E, Bolt, Up, Tron Legacy, Brave, Frankenweenie, Monsters University, The Lone Ranger, Saving Mr. Banks, Into the Woods, the new live-action Cinderella, and Tomorrowland.

New Question: What are your favorite Disney on Broadway songs that were written/found for the musical but not in the original film (Credit: Ponyfan)

I've only heard a couple songs from the Broadway version of Beauty and the Beast -- "Home" and "If I Can't Love Her." I can't say that they're my favorite songs, though.

EDIT: I just noticed that someone said they liked the movie Thumbelina, and pardon me for going all full-on Disney nerd here, but... Thumbelina is not a Disney movie. The guy who made it, Don Bluth, used to work for Disney but left the company (which explains why the movie had a Disney feel to it). If I recall correctly, Thumbelina was released on VHS by Warner Brothers Entertainment when I was a kid. So... please... no offense when I point out what movies are Disney and which ones are not, because believe me I'm a total Disney nerd and have spent a lot of years learning about Walt Disney and the movies Disney has made, so I cannot help it when I see/hear people claiming a movie is Disney when it's not and want to correct their mistake (a lot of people on the internet are especially notorious in claiming that Anastasia is a Disney movie). So please, don't get angry with me whenever I point out that such-and-such movie isn't made by Disney.

They're new to me (I don't know all of the G3 Ponies aside from the core ones like Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash). However, I must say that Beach Belle looks gorgeous! I would totally love to get her... I should start collecting the G3s in addition to the G1s and G4s.

I don't have her, but I would love to have the store version and movie version of her.

*Checks her typed up list of pony wants*

Oh crap, and there's a Venezuela version of her that I would love to have as well. *Dang it should have voted for "want a variation" option in addition to store and movie versions*

« on: September 08, 2015, 03:30:28 PM »
I have her! Out of all the TAF Ponies, she's my absolute favorite. Had her as a child, and I've been reunited with her. I love her so much, I'm debating about having a Night Glider army. xD

Off Topic / Re: Does you have pets or family members named after characters?
« on: September 07, 2015, 06:29:46 AM »
According to my mom, my parents was watching a TV show -- my mom can't remember which one it was -- that featured a girl named Stacy... and they ended up deciding to call me Stacy instead of Megan (I think my mom had another name choice for me but I can't remember what it was).

We had a couple pets named after celebrities -- I once had a bunny named Chaplin after Charlie Chaplin, and we have a barn cat named Groucho after Groucho Marx -- but other than that we've never really named our pets after any characters.

I remember having some of the "G1" Care Bears as a child. My mom says they're stored in her basement, though I have a feeling that they've seen better days.

I do have a small handful of G1 Transformers, and I'm starting to collect a few of the Fairy Tails birds as well (never had them as a child).

EDIT: Just remembered. I also had a handful of the G1 Littlest Pet Shop pets and Polly Pocket sets.

People like that are incredibly shallow, in my opinion. And definitely not someone to worry about. Sadly, there are a lot of stupid people out there who have these kinds of reactions. I've had the same thing happen to me. Don't let it bother you. Collect, and live your life the way you want to. You don't have to justify what makes you happy. If someone else is worried about what you do, it's on them.

I agree 100% with this.
