Capture the Magic of Disney with These Wonderful Craft Projects

Pinocchio-facts

While some Disney fans buy merchandise to own a piece of the Disney magic, there are some who make their own. In Disney, you find a lot of people doing crafts. The Good Fairies from Sleeping Beauty make a dress for Aurora’s 16th birthday even though Flora and Merrywether can’t agree on the color. You have Gepetto who makes Pinocchio out of wood before the Blue Fairy gives him life and a chance to become a real boy. Then there’s Cinderella and the mice who touch up a dress that her stepsisters later tear apart right before it’s time for a ball. I may not think that Cinderella is one of the best Disney princesses since she had almost everything handed to her. However, you have to admit that she at least did something to achieve what she wanted, even if it was to go to a party. Since Disney is very popular as a brand all over the world, I didn’t have much trouble finding craft projects. Yet, whether they’re licensed by Disney is anyone’s guess. Nevertheless, you’ll find all kinds of Disney craft projects on Pinterest whether they be for decoration, parties, or what else. So for your reading pleasure, here are some magical craft projects from Disney. Just not the kind of magic you see in Disney movies.

 

  1. No poor unfortunate soul shall go without this clay Ursula seashell pendant.
This is where Ursula stored Ariel's voice and used it to get Eric to dump her while disguised as Vanessa. It later broke.

It’s no secret that Disney makes a killing off of merchandise and that was when they didn’t own Marvel or Star Wars. And as a kid, I’m sure I got my parents to contribute generously to that company so I can have some Disney crap of my own. And I’m sure there are plenty of kids who did the same at some point in their lives. Nevertheless, Disney merchandise is everywhere, especially at their theme parks. One of my biggest gripes about going to Disney with my high school marching band during my senior year wasn’t that the Disney merchandise was everywhere but that most of it was associated with Mickey Mouse and his friends whom I’ve said before don’t really care for. In fact, I didn’t include Mickey and his gang among the Disney costume set because I simply don’t like a lot of Mickey Mouse cartoons. The guy is creepy and has an annoying voice. But I understand he’s Disney’s mascot and when it comes to doing the other posts unrelated to costumes, you can’t avoid him. I mean every time I look for Disney stuff, I see Mickey all the damn time. Anyway, I don’t mind so much for merchandise since I usually feature the crazier stuff instead of your standard things. So for your reading pleasure, I give you a glimpse into the wonderful world of Disney merchandise.

 

  1. Fans of Toy Story will surely adore this Slinky Dog tote bag.
Seems like Slinky Dog is stretched out of shape. Yeah, I don't think he's in the best mood.

2. Show your love for Disney with this Mickey Mouse pocket knife from the 1933 Chicago World Fair.

Handy for opening letters and packages. Also great for attacking rival gang members.

3. Keep everything magically fixed and sealed with some Frozen duck tape.

Yeah, I have no idea why they have this. It doesn't seem to make much sense. I mean it's duck tape. Everyone buys it plain.

4. Slow cook your favorite dishes in a crock pot of your favorite Pixar films.

Well, it certainly looks rather adorable. But I'd be afraid to use it for fear it might lead to the paint getting off of it.

5. Feel the love tonight with this commemorative pin from The Lion King.

Is it just me or do Simba and Nala seem to have darker circles around their eyes? Doesn't really look great to be honest.

Is it just me or do Simba and Nala seem to have darker circles around their eyes? Doesn’t really look great to be honest.

6. This Lion King Nature Fun book will certainly delight the kiddies for hours.

Uh, why's Scar colored like Simba and Mufasa? Seriously, the color's not right at all.

Uh, why’s Scar colored like Simba and Mufasa? Seriously, the color’s not right at all.

7. This Disney lighter will make everything seem brighter.

To be fair, this probably came out when Walt Disney was still alive. He was known to be a chain smoker. You can guess what killed him.

8. Those who love the Little Mermaid might enjoy a Dinglehopper hair brush.

Shouldn't it be a comb? Because Ariel uses a fork as a comb even though it's really for eating.

9. Commemorate Disney’s 101 Dalmatians with this Cruella De Vil figurine.

Cruella and the puppies seem a bit too chummy with each other in this. I mean in the movie Cruella has the puppies kidnapped so she could make coats out of them. So why should she get along with the pups?

10. Keep the fire out of your house with your very own Mickey Mouse fire extinguisher.

Yes, this exists when it doesn't need to. I think it might be from Etsy. But it's still strange.

11, Parents, if you’re son is swept by the popularity of Frozen, I suppose this set of undies will do just fine.

Now Frozen little girl underwear I understand. But this? Uh, I think Disney's trying t aim for the wrong demographic.

12. For any Disney barbecue, these Mickey Burgers will surely come in handy.

Just what I want, burgers in the shape of a mouse head. Then again, they might have more meat on them. But they might not turn right grilled.

13. I’m sure Mickey will be happy to hold a roll for you.

Yes, this is a Mickey Mouse toilet paper holder. Now if only they had Mickey Mouse toilet paper.

14. Wake up in the morning with this Mickey Mouse toaster.

And yes, you get a toast of Mickey's face on it when you put bread in it. Not something I'd want in mind.

15. On a cold day, it’s great to warm up to Frozen’s Campbell’s Soup.

Yes, kids, pour some of this soup into a bowl, microwave it, eat it, and watch your sodium levels go through the roof. Because Campbell's Mmmmm....salt.

Yes, kids, pour some of this soup into a bowl, microwave it, eat it, and watch your sodium levels let it go. Because Campbell’s Mmmmm….salt.

16. If you loved the Lion King, then you’ll like Battle Action Banzai with Zazu.

Let's face it, Banzai could probably take down Zazu at any day of the week. Then again, it's been a long time since I saw the movie. By the way, Zazu is voiced by Rowan Atkinson who's better known as Mr. Bean. Yeah weird.

17. If you liked the mice on Cinderella, you might like this sewing mouse figurine.

Because there's nothing more endearing than seeing a mouse with a needle. Okay, that's kind of unsettling.

18. A Mickey figurine like this captures the magic of Disney.

I don't know. But to me it seems like smaller versions of himself are pinning him down like that scene from Gulliver's Travels. Still, this is pretty weird, even by Disney standards.

19. Keep your kids save in the car with this seat belt from Frozen.

All cars contain seat belts nowadays. So why is this necessary? Then again, maybe I should let it go.

20. Smell like a pirate in the Caribbean with dab of Pirate Water cologne.

In reality, Golden Age pirates of the Caribbean stank like they never had a bath in years. So maybe you don't want to smell like a pirate, historically speaking of course.

21. Beauty and the Beast fans will surely enjoy sipping their drink through a Belle plastic cup.

Look, I'm a big fan of Beauty and the Beast and all. However, this thing is so disturbing that it can't be unseen.

22. Have girls aspire to wishes and dreams with this Disney princess toilet seat.

If wishes and dreams mean staying dry, not wetting the bed, and never having to put the toilet seat down. Then again, I don't want to imagine how Belle, Cinderella, and Aurora went to the bathroom.

23. Kids who like Tarzan are bound to enjoy this jungle Rad, Repeatin’ action figure.

Okay, Tarzan, I know you might have certain "needs." But can't you keep your jerking off to yourself? It's pretty disturbing.

24. Sing-A-Ma-Jig Minnie Mouse is sure to delight kids of all ages.

Believe it or not this toy was aimed to children. But the unfortunate shape of the mouth makes it more suitable for Spencer's more than anything.

25. How about spend some time on a Donald Duck ride?

From LOLWOT: "While this ride is likely supposed to be Donald Duck just leaning back and relaxing, when someone sits on him, it looks like he’s getting ready for something quite frisky." Like the awkward look on that woman's face. It's priceless. If you think Donald's dirty in that, you should see him in the Three Caballeros.

26. I’m sure this Winnie the Pooh toy won’t raise any objections.

Okay, I was wrong. As LOL WOT says: "It’s hard to know just what this toy is supposed to do, other than make us incredibly uncomfortable. There’s a reason there’s little information available about this toy other than this picture."

Okay, I was wrong. As LOL WOT says: “It’s hard to know just what this toy is supposed to do, other than make us incredibly uncomfortable. There’s a reason there’s little information available about this toy other than this picture.”

27. Sing along with Mickey with this Mickey Mouse microphone.

From LOL WOT: "This is a toy that is just supposed to let kids have a microphone that has some of the characteristics of Mickey. The problem is the device had a rather phallic shape that encouraged kids to put it near their mouths."

28. Nothing makes a great Disney lunch like Dip Sea Dooz fish sticks.

Uh, isn't Ariel part fish? And she's on the package to sell fish sticks? Do you see a conflict of interest here, people?

29. Drink to infinity and beyond with this Buzz Lightyear sippy cup.

From LOL WOT: "When it comes to this sippy cup, it’s not just the incredibly unfortunate placement of the straw, but it’s also the crossed arms and self-satisfied look on Buzz’s face that makes this such a terrible item." Oh, my God, I guess the merchandise people at Disney didn't think this one through in the least bit.

He just seems more “woody” than “buzzed” at the moment.

30. Recreate the beginning of the Lion King when Rafiki holds up Simba with this toy.

From LOL WOT: "This small little toy was supposed to emulate the famous scene where the monkey wiseman holds Simba up to the heavens to show the new Lion King. Unfortunately the way the toy is positioned, makes it look like something else entirely is on Rafiki’s mind." What it is, I really don't want to know.

31. Fans of Hannah Montana might enjoy some gummy concert candy.

From LOL WOT: "While the Hannah Montana Concert Candy is billed as being gummies that are in the shape of guitars and microphones, you don’t have to look that closely to see the rather phallic shape of these treats."

32. Any real boy might have some fondness for this pair of Pinocchio boxers.

The fact that Pinocchio has no nose on this just makes me suspect a lot of dirty things going on. So when his nose grows does it mean he's dishonest, horny, or both?

33. If you like Donald Duck and the most badass bounty hunter of them all, look no further.

Yes, that's Donald Duck as Boba Fett. Not sure what Fett's fans might think about this. But at least Donald's wearing pants this time.

Yes, that’s Donald Duck as Boba Fett. Not sure what Fett’s fans might think about this. But at least Donald’s wearing pants this time.

34. Disney Star Wars fans might enjoy this figurine as Mickey as X-Wing fighter Luke Skywalker.

Because there's nothing more family friendly than a mouse that kisses his sister and blows up a space station with thousands of people inside. Okay, that's kind of disturbing.

35. If you like the Incredibles, step into these super high heeled shoes.

Well, at least they're not stilettos. However, they don't seem to be something a woman might wear to a formal event.

Well, at least they’re not stilettos. However, they don’t seem to be something a woman might wear to a formal event.

36. Commemorate Finding Nemo with this snow globe of Marlin and Dory.

Because nothing brings fond memories like being surrounded by sharks and thinking you're gonna die. Sure these guys think that fish are friends not food, but still.

37. If you liked Pinocchio, then celebrate Christmas with this commemorative ornament.

Because nothing says Merry Christmas like lying your ass off and being locked in a cage. Yeah, Pinocchio is way more disturbing than what most people remember.

38. Even die hard Frozen fans can’t seem to let this toilet seat go.

Yes, this is the kind of toilet that helps kids to let their bowels go. I know it's kind of sick but what do you expect?

39. If you think Mickey is the king in your life, then this jeweled Mickey king is for you.

By the way, this is said to cost only about $1500. Or as I call it, "a magical waste of money."

40. Look sharp with these Frozen pressed on nails.

From Bustle: "Because your kindergartner doesn’t always have time to make it to the salon, okay?" Why would any kindergartner need this anyway? Pressed on nails suck.

41. Now your kid can sleep anywhere with this On the Go Frozen slumber set.

From Bustle: "Just in case your kid needs to take an immediate, stylish nap in the mall, or the grocery store, or the post office…" For a moment, I thought this was an ironing board.

42. Commemorate a Disney Halloween with this Chip and Dale pin.

Now this is kind of disturbing. Because Chip and Dale seem to act like their lounging in a Jacuzzi while they're basically being cooked alive as chipmunk stew. Doesn't help that Dale is adding some spice to the brew. This is sick.

43. Now you can watch your favorite Disney movies outside with a Mickey Mouse outdoor TV screen.

Really? Sorry, but I kind of prefer the experience of watching outdoor movies as something you experience on a campground on a fair weather Saturday night. This is ridiculous.

44. Turn on the waterworks with your very own Disney faucet set.

I don't think this would look good in any home. Then again, I guess fans will buy anything.

45. Fans of Aladdin would certainly gawk at this Precious Moments Jasmine figurine with Rajah.

Uh, why does Rajah have no stripes? Seriously, he's a tiger. They are born with stripes in their skin. Apparently, the designer didn't understand this.

46. This Frozen bowling set is said to bring loads of family fun.

How is this necessary? Seriously, I don't understand this. Can someone cue me in?

How is this necessary? Seriously, I don’t understand this. Can someone cue me in on why these exist?

47. Fans of Hercules will certainly like this Hades plush toy.

Okay, I understand that Hades is the bad guy in Hercules just to avoid Herc's being a product of divine rape on Zeus's part which explains why Hera hates him in the original myth. I get that. But even as a Disney villain, Hades is quite likable and entertaining. This plush doesn't really show this.

Okay, I understand that Hades is the bad guy in Hercules just to avoid Herc’s being illegitimate son of Zeus and a mortal named Alceme which explains why Hera makes his life hell in the original myth. I get it. But even as a Disney villain, Hades is quite likable and entertaining. This plush doesn’t really show this.

48. Don’t let your boobs go with this Elsa bra.

Yes, this is real. And you can get it at Hot Topic. I don't know why it exists. But it does.

Yes, this is real. And you can get it at Hot Topic. I don’t know why it exists. But it does.

49. For those who wish to keep clean, this Olaf soap pump will keep your liquid soap in store.

Because there's no better way to get soap than through being pumped from a snowman's head. How does that even make sense?

50. This Frozen T-Shirt will show any man that he’s hot stuff.

Sounds a bit flirtatious doesn't it? Then again, Disney is very well aware of its adult fanbase. But I'm not sure about trying to cater to young men.

51. Go through rugged terrain with this Frozen toy jeep.

Yes, this toy mainly catered to boys is now outfitted with girly colors like its Barbie predecessor. Not sure why they thought it was a good idea.

52. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a Winnie the Pooh sippy cup.

On second thought, you can. Apparently, there are very disturbing things going on in the Hundred Acre Wood that we don't see all the time. Still, this is just mind boggling to me.

53. When it comes to Frozen sometimes this decal will help you deal with what’s inside.

Personally, I find this decal hilarious. However, it kind of gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "Let it go/Let it go/Can't hold it back anymore....."

54. Stand out at Disney with this commemorative 50th anniversary Mickey Mouse ears jewel encrusted cap.

I don't know about you but $1500 is an awful lot of money for a Disney Mickey cap. Just sayin.'

55. Train your kids to go to the bathroom with this Toy Story training potty.

I'm sure your kid will be totally comfortable trying to take a dump while the toys are watching from the lid. Then again, probably not.

56. There’s no one on Naboo more regal than Queen Minnie Amidala.

Yes, I get it with Disney issuing these figurines. But I'm not sure if I can see Minnie Mouse marrying and having kids with a future Sith Lord.

57. Of course, Frozen underwear isn’t just for little girls.

I know this is catered to kids. But I can't help wondering whether it's a thong. Probably which is kind of disturbing.

I know this isn’t catered to kids. But I can’t help wondering whether it’s a thong. Probably which is kind of disturbing.

58. This Mickey Mouse light bulb will light up your life.

Just what I want, Mickey Mouse's head lighting up a room. What will they come up with next? And I thought a Hunger Games light bulb was crazy enough.

59. For the upcoming film Finding Dory, you might want to check out this figurine.

Because there's nothing better than being in a coffee pot held by an octopus. And you know what octopuses do to fish Dory's size.

60. Keep cool this summer with your very own, Mickey Mouse mini fan.

I don't know about you, but Mickey seems to look quite sinister for some reason. Then again, I tend to think he's kind of creepy anyway.

61. Feel the power of the Force with these Star Wars Cars figurines.

As if I didn't think the Mickey Mouse Star Wars figurines were stupid enough. Now they have to depict the characters as cars? Seriously why?

62. Chill out on the beach this summer with your very own Olaf beach towel from Frozen.

Well, at least Olaf fantasizes about spending summer on the beach. Too bad he's made out of ice and snow that he'll melt when spring comes around.

63. These Disney fish nuggets will surely make a great lunch.

Again with the Little Mermaid promotions. I mean she's part fish for God's sake. Then again, sharks are also considered fish. But still.

64. Reel it in like a princess with your very own Disney princess fishing rod.

I'm sure there are some girls who go on fishing trips. It's just that it doesn't strike as something associated with Disney princess fans.

I’m sure there are some girls who go on fishing trips. It’s just that it doesn’t strike as something associated with Disney princess fans. But at least Ariel is not on the packaging.

65. Seems like Mickey Mouse can really wield a lightsaber as Anakin Skywalker.

I'm sure he's soon going to use that lightsaber to murder a building full of kids once he turns to the Dark Side. After all, Anakin did so in Revenge of the Sith.

66. This Precious Moments Jasmine with Rajah will melt your heart.

Again, Rajah is a tiger. That animal Jasmine is holding doesn't look like a tiger cub at all.

67. If you loved the movie Up, then you’ll adore this figurine of Carl and Russell.

I don't know about you. But at the angle this was photographed, it doesn't seem to have good connotations. I don't know if I want to divulge why.

68. Wonder how Donald is going to get out of this.

This is him as Han Solo in carbonite. Interesting how Disney made the choice to depict Donald like this. And I'm not sure if he's wearing pants.

69. I’m sure the magic and the Force will be with you with these Star Wars Disney figurines.

Wonder what Mickey will think when he finds out that Goofy is his father and that Minnie is his sister. Only time will tell I guess.

70. Nothing makes a trip for the beach better than wearing your very own Elsa flip flops.

From Smosh: "Nothing captures the feel of Frozen like beachwear. Yes, there are Frozen swimsuits. Yes, there are Frozen beach balls. And yes, somewhere someone is proudly introducing Frozen beach homes, made entirely of sculpted ice. The residence will melt away just as you pay the property tax."

It doesn’t have to be a sand man. Okay bye.

71. Of course, there are many young women who dream to be married in an Elsa wedding gown.

From Smosh: "Despite the age of your average Frozen fan, this Elsa-inspired bridal gown is not made for children, but is instead designed for adults who probably tried to wedge their feet in glass slippers in hopes of landing royalty. The person who gets this gown is is the type of person who can’t leave behind the idea of a “fairytale wedding”, no matter how much medication their doctor prescribes them."

72. Sing “Let It Go” all you want with this Frozen microphone and amplifier.

From Smosh: "Remember the karaoke scene in Frozen that turned into an epic rap battle? Well, clearly someone got the unofficial director’s cut, because now kids everywhere can belt out “Let It Go” as often as they want ... until there's a rise in child abandonment cases."

73. Now your little girl can tee off with her very own Frozen golf set.

From Smosh: "When children left the theater after seeing Frozen, their first thought was probably, “I hope I can get in a quick nine at the club". Now, thanks to this Elsa and Anna-endorsed set, kids everywhere can relive the wintry magic of the film while making important business contacts on the green! Should they snap their clubs in half after being caught in a sand trap, they can always pick up the official, and real, Frozen Bowling Set."

74. Dreams will come true one mile at a time with a pair of athletic Cinderella glass slippers.

What the hell? Seriously, that doesn't look like anything practical as athletic gear. In fact, its existence defies all logical explanation.

What the hell? Seriously, that doesn’t look like anything practical as athletic gear. In fact, its existence defies all logical explanation.

75. Of course, boys will live happily ever after playing with this Disney prince playset.

Except that many boys aren't really that interested in these kind of toys. Also, the earlier princes don't have much character to them either.

76. Now you can make your own Frozen treats with an Olaf snow cone maker.

Yes, Olaf is made out of snow. But it doesn't make this thing less disturbing since it churns snow from his chest.

77. If your kid needs to breath, perhaps this Mickey Mouse gas mask will come in handy.

To be fair, this is from WWII for children in air raid drills. However, no kid really asks for a Mickey Mouse gas mask. Unless they're a budding WWII buff.

78. Nothing makes you light up like a pack of Hannah Montana cigarettes.

Naturally, like the Harry Potter condoms, these aren't licensed (thank God). But it doesn't paint Miley Cyrus as a great role model during the late 2000s. Well, until the VMAs and "Wrecking Ball" anyway.

79. Any child is sure to do delight in one of these Mickey Mouse dressers.

As far as children's furniture is concerned, these give me nightmares. Don't know why.

80. Nothing is more fun at a mini golf course than teeing off with Donald Duck.

Then again, seeing Donald at a mini golf course like this might make you wonder whether he wants to murder you in your sleep. Not to be critical.

81. There’s nothing better than two baby dolls dressed as Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

These babies look dead inside even in Disney attire. They make Mickey and Minnie seem cute by comparison.

82. Of course, Minnie seems to be in skimpy attire as a slave to Jabba the Hutt.

Now I've heard Disney wanting to discontinue the Slave Leia merchandise which I think is stupid. Meanwhile, they come up with Slave Leia Minnie which is in some ways more unsettling. I wish someone would explain this.

83. Keep yourself clean and wash your blues away with these Mickey and Minnie shower heads.

These are from Japan who have a Disney theme park of their own. Not sure if I want water coming out of their noses though. Or anywhere else on their faces.

84. Store your pez candies in this set of dispensers from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Well, these may seem harmless. But the dwarf ones have acquired a dubious reputation when you try to put a pez in them. And I'll leave it at that.

85. Grace your Christmas tree with this memorable ornament of Winnie the Pooh.

Well, memorable for all the wrong reasons. I might've posted it before a few years ago. But this is just so freaky.

86. Smell Pixar fresh with a bottle of Toy Story 3 cologne.

Its scent is of tears from grown men and women. Lots of tears if you know what the movie's about.

87. Help Buzz Lightyear back on his feet with Toy Story Operation.

Funny, Buzz doesn't seem to have much wrong with him. Then again, in the first movie he had been under the delusion that he was real instead of a toy.

88. How about a pancake skillet with Mickey or Cinderella?

These are so you can have their images on pancakes. I don't know why people would. That's what they do.

89. Beware of the power of the dark lord of the Stitch.

Really, Stitch as Emperor Palpatine? I can't see that. I mean Stitch really isn't evil. Just innocent and misunderstood.

91. Smell like a baddie with these bottles of Disney Villain cologne.

Because Disney villains are all delightfully vile in their own way. Not sure about the Frollo or Radcliff ones because Frollo is creepy as hell and Radcliffe, well, he's kind of lame.

92. “Do or do not. There is no try, Mickey.”

Yes, Mickey has Master Yoda on his back. Yoda is training Mickey to be a jedi. Don't really see him as one to be honest.

Dreams Will Come True in These Magical Costumes from the Wonderful World of Disney

19911122_prc_g90_118

As far as the Walt Disney Company is concerned, I have posts on at least two of the franchises they have rights to such as Star Wars back in November and Marvel Comics back in March. However, the company has gained some notoriety for its idea of American cultural imperialism, these few Disney posts aren’t about the media conglomerate. Or else, I’d have a lot more to work with. In fact, these posts are about Disney as a brand which is more associated with Mickey Mouse cartoons, animated movie musicals, Pixar, as well as networks that feature corny sitcoms and bubblegum pop music aimed at 11-14 year old girls like Hannah Montana. As someone born in 1990, I was a child during a very good time for Disney when they released some of their greatest and more famous films such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King, Toy Story and Toy Story 2, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, James and the Giant Peach, and Mulan. My adolescence and college years saw a lot of good movies from Pixar such as Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Toy Story 3, and Up. And there are recent movies which aren’t too shabby either like The Princess and the Frog, Brave, Frozen, and Enchanted. Of course, I also watched the old stuff, too like Pinocchio, Dumbo, The Fox and the Hound, 101 Dalmatians, The Great Mouse Detective, Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Lady and the Tramp, The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, The Rescuers, Alice in Wonderland, and Song of the South (on Youtube out of curiosity). I’ve also seen a few Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh cartoons as well. Nevertheless, one of the great things about these Disney movies is that they tend to appeal to such wide audiences around the world and at all ages. Children who grew up with Disney will like it forever and pass their love for it to their kids. And there is absolutely no shame with liking Disney movies at any age since almost everyone has watched them either in theaters or on DVD. Because no matter how sappy and wholesome Disney movies might seem on the surface, a lot of these films are still as entertaining and relevant as they always have.

Aladdin_Prince_Ali1

Founded in 1923 by Walt Disney and his brother Roy as a cartoon studio, what would be later known as the Walt Disney Company started out by releasing a series of shorts called Alice’s Wonderland which featured a child actress interacting with animated characters. After that series ended in 1926, Walt did a series of shorts featuring a character named Oswald the Lucky Rabbit through Universal Studios. But two years later in 1928, he lost a contract with his distributor which took 4 of his fellow animators save Ub Iwerks to form their own cartoon studio. However, that same year he’d create Mickey Mouse and release Steamboat Willie which was the first cartoon to feature synchronized sound, a smash hit, as well as made Mickey a household name, changed animation forever, and became Walt Disney’s big break. During the early 1930s, Disney would release more cartoon shorts such as the Silly Symphonies series and more Mickey Mouse cartoons as well as experiment with Technicolor. These toons would provide Walt Disney to finance a project that was practically unheard of at the time: a full-length animated feature film in English called Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1934. However, despite what some critics would say, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs would become the highest grossing film after its debut in December 1937 to 1939. Disney would use the profits to build his Burbank, California studio as well as produce more films, cartoons, and TV shows. In the 1955, Walt Disney would open Disneyland in California. Disney World would open after Walt Disney’s death in 1966 from lung cancer due to his chain smoking catching up to him. However, the Walt Disney Company continued to live on despite suffering a slump in the 1970s and early 1980s. Then this would be the time when Disney would start to take its modern form with releasing several of the movies people in my generation grew up with, the Disney Channel, buying up networks, and its partnership with Pixar, a studio known for making a well done film at the worst. Nevertheless, while many people might dismiss Disney as a company specializing in children’s entertainment, they’ve been known to produce films that would make a grown man cry and its partnership with Pixar has increasingly shown how the movie industry hasn’t been taking animated films as serious as it should.

However, while Disney has had an unmistakable presence in my childhood, it turns out that there are a lot of huge fans out there way more obsessed with these movies than I’ll ever be. In fact, it’s not uncommon for many people to dress up as Disney characters on Halloween, on their Disney trips, or at an occasional comic convention. And sometimes this consists of whole families as well as people of all ages. You’ll see plenty of Disney princesses, Disney villains, as well as characters from Pixar. Personally, I prefer most of the recent Disney movies I grew up with as well as the Pixar films. I’m not a huge fan of Mickey and his gang despite seeing a few cartoons. However, I do like Winnie the Pooh since those cartoons contain characters people at all ages while having G rated plots and themes. Nevertheless, for your reading pleasure, I give you a treasure trove of magically costumed characters all from the wonderful world of Disney.

  1. Paint the colors of the wind with this Pocahontas costume.
Kind of ironic that she's dressed as a character who's based on a real historical figure who was supposed to be 12 at the time she "saved" John Smith. Then again, Pocahontas had been subject to age ups before the Disney movie came out.

2. Princess Merida always takes her best shot in all her finery.

The thing I like about Merida is that it focuses more on mother-daughter relationships and that she's one of the few Disney princesses to act like a typical teenager. Well, at least not in a very destructive way (unlike Anna, Elsa, and Ariel).

3. Oh, no, looks like Ariel’s become lunch!

Yeah, I know I'm going to get comments for this. But I think this is really funny. Besides, it's a wonder she didn't get eaten.

4. Looks like this family has gone to Wonderland and back.

Then again, the dad seems to be dressed as the Mad Hatter from the Tim Burton movie. However, my favorite in this bunch is the kid dressed as the Ace of Spades.

5. Remember, at Agrabah, no one is safe from evil and powerful Jafar.

Interestingly enough, Jafar was based on a real guy who wasn't that bad but ended up executed. However, that Jafar had usually been the go-to guy for inspiring evil grand viziers ever since, particularly in the Arabian Nights.

6. Looks like the office Genie has come out of his lamp today.

I know Genie wasn't dressed up like that in Aladdin. But I have to admit, this is a really cool costume. This guy definitely deserves to win his Halloween costume contest at work.

7. I hope that little girl doesn’t take a bite out of that apple.

I may not be a big fan of Snow White since she's kind of a bland character. However, I often envy her for being able to get a bunch of woodland creatures to clean her home with a song.

8. Unlike Ariel, this Disney Princess didn’t leave her home under the sea.

This is Princess Kida from Atlantis: the Lost Empire. She later becomes queen and ends up shacking up with a much younger man.

9. As we all know, Mulan was destined to be a Chinese housewife but ended up risking her life to save her father and China.

Well, this is Mulan in her outfit when she went to see the matchmaker. She didn't do very well. Thankfully, she ended up with her boss who kind of had some sexuality issues.

10. Yet, here we see another picture of Mulan kicking ass.

Of course, when she dressed up as a guy, she managed to keep her gender under wraps for months. And it's a wonder the other guys didn't find out when she was bathing with them.

11. Here we come to the Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.

Of course, she didn't know her name was Aurora until her 16th birthday. Till then, she was called Briar Rose.

Of course, she didn’t know her name was Aurora until her 16th birthday. Till then, she was called Briar Rose.

12. Remember at your Disney party, always invite Maleficent.

Because if you don't, she'll crash your party and curse your baby. Yeah, she can be an evil witch but she's not a woman to mess with.

13. For a modern day Briar Rose, love is once upon a dream.

However, it doesn't help that she's dancing in a parking lot. Yeah, real smart. Not.

Yes, she's so adorable in that little yellow tutu dress. So sweet.

He's Riley's imaginary friend when she was a little girl. Nevertheless, his death scene kind of makes you cry.

16. Guess this woman doesn’t really go on magic carpet rides.

Because she's the magic carpet from Aladdin. And she seemed to have made it herself according to the pattern.

17. “Me, Tarzan. You, Jane.”

That's Tarzan and Jane Porter all right. I guess Tarzan is a rather easy costume since it only entails a loincloth and wig.

18. The Ace of Clubs is ready for a paint job at the Queen of Hearts’s rose bush.

Unfortunately, he'll end up losing his head over it. Yeah, the Queen of Hearts is one nasty bitch.

19. Apparently, Buzz Lightyear had just been to a tea party.

It was in Sid's sister's room. And his arm was detached at the time. Still, this is a clever costume.

20. As we all know, Belle is kind of a bookworm.

She's also said to have her head in the clouds and coming off as a bit odd. Oh, and rejecting Gaston for no good reason, according to the villagers' point of view.

21. Cinderella can’t go to the ball? Don’t worry her magical Fairy Godmother will fix it for her.

Yes, with flick of her magic wand, she can turn a pumpkin into a coach, mice into horses, and dogs into coachmen. Still, this costume looks easy to make.

22. It’s well known that Flynn Rider can be quite a charmer.

He can also climb towers on his girlfriend's long golden locks. Then again, I'm not very familiar with him because I've never seen Tangled.

Yes, this is a family rendition of Inside Out. Also, Bing Bong is played by the dog.

24. When it comes to activities, Merida would rather shoot arrows than comb her hair.

However, ask her to get married and she'll throw a huge hissyfit an justifiably sow. Still, you have to like her long red locks.

25. As a gypsy woman, Esmeralda earns her keep as a street performer with her goat.

Too bad she ended up making Frollo horny during Mardi Gras. Yeah, he's not known to take unrequited lust very well.

26. Guess Ariel didn’t think Urusla would try to steal her man when she signed the terms and conditions.

The dark haired woman is Vanessa, by the way who's actually Ursula. Still, you have to wonder why Ariel didn't just write notes to Eric in order to talk to him. I mean she has some degree of literacy. Then again, she might be that stupid.

27. In Frozen, there’s no couple more endearing than Anna and Kristoff.

Sure he may be rough around the edges, but Kristoff is a nice guy who mines ice and takes care of his reindeer Sven. Princess Anna shouldn't have gotten engaged to Prince Hans who turned out to be a jerk.

29. As we know from Disney, every princess has her prince.

Or so it seems that way. Unless you're Merida or Elsa. Still, not sure who the couple in the middle is supposed to be. Haven't seen their costumes before.

30. Apparently, Snow White seems to be a friend of all the woodland creatures.

And it seems the bunny has a ruff around its neck. Kind of messed up. But I'll put it on this post.

31. Here we have Ariel kindly escorted by Prince Eric.

Not sure what to think about Eric. Then again, he was under a spell. But he still kind of seems like a ditz. But so is Ariel.

32. Seems like this family comes from deep in the Hundred Acre Wood.

This family seems rather well dressed as the cast from Winnie the Pooh. Too bad they couldn't include Rabbit. But what's not to love?

Well, this Ursula has green hair and is really a sea witch. But boy, she's so entertaining.

34. There’s no man who rules the waves under the sea than King Triton.

Too bad he pays more attention to his job than his 7 daughters. With a dad like him, could anyone be surprised that Ariel ended up like she did? Not really.

Pinocchio has never been among my favorite Disney movies. However, I have to admit that this is a really good costume.

36. As always, Kristoff is always accompanied with his trusty reindeer Sven.

Keep in mind that Kristoff probably has really bad BO since he was raised by trolls. But this is such a cute costume.

Note to self: try to watch Tangled as soon as possible. Because I know it's based on Rapunzel and not much else.

38. For this couple a rat infestation can only help their restaurant business.

This family is dressed as the 3 main characters from Ratatouille. It's about a rat who aspires to be a Parisian chef. So cute.

39. From Atlantis: The Lost Empire, we have Milo and Kida.

Sure there's a two millennium age difference at least, but they seem to be going strong. After all, that didn't stop Aragorn and Arwen from getting together either.

40. The movie Frozen always teaches us that sisterly love is perhaps the strongest love of all.

Not sure if it's like that between me and my sister. But at least neither of us have their problems. Queen Elsa should probably loosen up while Princess Anna should use her head.

41. Olaf always looks forward to summer.

Unfortunately for him, he's a snowman so he'll basically evaporate when it gets above a certain temperature. Lucky for him, Elsa gives him a cloud.

42. Working for supers, Edna Mode always designs outfits for heroes.

Like Jafar, Edna Mode is also based on a real person. In her case, it's the famous Hollywood costume designer Edith Head known design outfits for a lot of classic movies.

43. Seems like this family comes all the way from Monsters Inc.

Guess we have here Mike, Sulley, Mike's girlfriend with the Medusa hair, and Boo. Still, such a good movie, but not to the degree of Toy Story.

44. If you need a gospel choir from Ancient Greece, say hello to the Muses from Hercules.

Well, there are only 5 Muses in Hercules. But in Greek mythology, there were 9. 5 is a manageable number.

45. If you’re not into blue, perhaps a pink dress will do.

This is Princess Aurora in her pink dress. Yes, it's beautiful but she spends more screen time in the blue one. Just saying.

46. For big families, perhaps you’ll do well going as Snow White, the Prince, and the 7 Dwarfs.

I know this is more of a stock photo. But I'm including it anyway since it has all the costumes of the 7 dwarfs.

47. I’m sure Esmeralda will be fine seeking refuge at Notre Dame.

Here she's praying to God for the outcasts. Yet, in the movie, she's also one herself. And it's too bad Frollo is lusting after her which is creepy.

Yes, this is Belle and the Beast all right. Love the yellow dress. And that beast doesn't look shabby either.

49. As we know, Pocahontas always tries to be one with nature.

However, she's engaged to be married to a warrior because her dad said so. Then again, Powahatan went through the same deal. Well, he had multiple families in real life.

50. Sure Aurora may be the heroine in Sleeping Beauty, but Maleficent makes evil look cool.

I mean there's a reason why Disney made a movie revolving around her. Also, can I tell you she turns into a dragon? Too bad Prince Philip kills her.

53. Remember, Cinderella, have fun and be back home around midnight.

Yes, this is the standard Cinderella ball gown made by the Fairy Godmother. Still, I think the Fairy Godmother should've came earlier when her dad died and called child services. But no one's asking me.

Still, remember, girls, trading your voice for plastic surgery so you can get together with a guy you just met is a really bad idea. Seriously, don't try it.

61. Sometimes you have to let it all go like Queen Elsa.

Except in her case because she ended up causing eternal winter. So maybe that's not a good idea. Then again, she wasn't emotionally healthy to begin with.

62. Seems like Ariel has found herself under Ursula’s spell.

Ariel should've known better than to consult Ursula to give her legs. Seriously, Ursula had a beef with her dad. She was going to use Ariel's voice to steal Eric away from her. Couldn't the girl see that coming?

The Whimiscally Mechanical World of Steampunk Costumes

steam_punk1000

To many, the word “steampunk” has an ambiguous connotations since to describe what it means, you have to go into detail. But if you kind of know what it entails. Well, to put it this way, it’s a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic design inspired by 19th century steam powered machinery. Works associated with this subgenre are often associated with alternative history particularly Victorian Britain or the Wild West or in a post apocalyptic future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Though it can be considered Neo-Victorian, steampunk most recognizeably features anachronistic or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might’ve envisioned them. And it’s likewise rooted in the era’s perspectives on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Technology might even include fictional machines like you’d find in Jules Verne or H.G. Wells. Other technological examples contain alternative-history style presentations like lighter-than-air airships as well as analog or digital mechanical computers. While the term was coined in the 1980s, there are steampunk works of fiction created as far back as the 1950s and 1960s. Many science fiction works in the 19th century could fall under this as well. Nevertheless, common steampunk works usually take place after the American Civil War to the turn of the century. Still, it’s a kind of genre that has a lot of fans that it’s among a subculture that has a presence at conventions and Renaissance Festivals where you’ll see people in such steampunk attire. And here I’ll show some of these costumes to you.

 

  1. While it’s rude to open your umbrella indoors, they didn’t say anything about parasols.
I should note that most Steampunk costumes aren't period accurate, especially women's outfits. While you see some women wear a dress like this, in the 19th century, this would've been viewed as obscene at best.

2. While wearing a dress, always make sure your corset is made of leather.

I tend to see a lot of leather corsets here as well which Victorian women didn't wear over their dress. However, I can understand this since wearing a corset in the 19th century was not comfortable.

3. In Steampunk, a lady always has to have a utility belt and goggles.

Sometimes you'll see women in Steampunk garb wearing pants, too. Also, short sleeves. In the 19th century, these were fashion no-nos. Though some women did try to defy these rules by wearing bloomers.

4. I hear a metal corset is both stylish and is great for protection.

I do think this outfit is very pretty. However, I wonder how comfortable it is. Probably not suffocating as its 19th century equivalent.

5. I’m very confident that this woman can surely fix her man.

Mostly because she has a tool box with her and her boyfriend looks like Iron Man's grandpa. I'm sure there's plenty that could go wrong with him, mechanically speaking.

6. Well, she seems to have had a lot of work done.

As far as her outfit is concerned that is. Then again, she tends to resemble a 19th century Seven of Nine as a biker chick.

7. I guess this is Her Royal Majesty the Queen of Hearts.

If it's the one from Alice and Wonderland, I'd get the hell out and dodge. Because there's some kind of bloodlust about that woman since she's constantly ordering beheadings.

8. Sometimes it helps to have the right curls and a shiny dress.

Still, this dress wouldn't pass a traditional Victorian dress code. Too much leg above the ankles. Might've even been mistaken for swimwear.

9. In Victorian times, it was proper for women to dress in a hoop skirt.

However, in Steampunk, the hoop skirt isn't very wide and isn't always covered. Thus, at some point in the 19th century, she would've been seen as a whore. No offense.

10. An antique pistol can always complete a steampunk look.

But it's probably obsolete as a weapon since it takes about a minute to reload once fired. Repeating ammo was a mid 19th century invention.

11. As far as belts go, feel free to accessorize.

Guess she's never heard of a purse or fanny pack. Then again, the latter term has a very different meaning in Britain which I can't even divulge.

12. An eyepatch can always make you look smashing for any occasion.

I guess she's wearing this to look trendy. Still, it's a classic steampunk look with garters, top hat, and leather jacket.

16. When out, always keep your guns and dagger at your disposal.

Seems like she's dressed if My Fair Lady took place during a zombie apocalypse. Like the goggles on her hat.

17. Sometimes it helps to have a pistol in handy.

But whether it can fire multiple rounds is the question. Still, I do like her outfit even though I don't like guns.

19. There as never an excuse to show up less than well-dressed.

Because if you have to kill zombies it wouldn't be polite to put just anything on. A man has to look presentable.

20. A top hat can always use a few feathers now and then.

I guess those are from turkeys. Wonder if she shot any with that revolver. Probably not because it's a mere prop.

21. Nothing makes you look like a magician like wearing a red cloak and top hat.

Well, a red cloak and top hat sure look smashing on anyone. And I'm sure it looks pretty on her, too.

22. From the North Pole, I bring you Santa and Mrs. Claus from the 19th century.

Then again, a steampunk North Pole kind of makes sense, considering what Saint Nick has for his workload. Oddly Mrs. Claus isn't wearing red and green.

23. The feather in your hat always has to match your dress on a good day.

Now I really like this dress. Love the peacock blue jacket with lace and the matching skirt.

24. Pink hair always stands out when wearing a black dress.

33. I guess you can count this guy among the hard of hearing.

Because he sure has one hell of an ear trumpet. Nevertheless, he really knows how to dress in a snazzy outfit.

35. Why have a jet pack when a propeller will do just as well?

I don't think it will help him fly. But you have to like him in a bowler hat and a ZZTop beard.

I don’t think it will help him fly. But you have to like him in a bowler hat and a ZZTop beard.

36. This Snow White comes with her own big stick.

I guess it's for getting all the woodland creatures to help her clean up. Oh, wait, she does it with her singing. Why did Disney lie to us about that?

Out of all the women's costumes on this post, this one actually comes close to what a Victorian lady would actually dress like. Well, from the 1870s to 1880s anyway since it contains a bustle.

Well, this is a steampunk diving outfit for women. As you see, it's very impractical since it's a combination of a old timey diving suit and a Victorian swimsuit.

America Needs to Dump Trump

9RX3U5h

I know that I’ve been trying to avoid this subject for some time since it pertains to politics within an election year. But since Donald Trump is now the presumptive GOP nominee for president, I can no longer keep my mouth shut, not only as a Catholic social justice liberal but as an American citizen. I know people won’t like what I have to say about this, especially among my friends and family. Yet, I think my opinion on this situation is what Americans need to hear. Like many people, when Donald Trump announced his candidacy, I laughed it off thinking he probably won’t last very long since I found the idea simply preposterous. However, once people started taking him seriously and voting, his candidacy stopped being funny very quickly for me. In fact, he’s what John Oliver would call him as “America’s black mole,” because, “It may have seemed harmless a year ago, but now that it’s become frighteningly bigger, it’s no longer wise to ignore it.” The idea that people would vote for this clown despite being such an embarrassment and national disgrace to this country with all the nasty stuff he’s said just scares the living shit out of me. I can’t imagine anyone in their right mind ever voting for this guy and I thought the American people knew better than to vote for a guy I clearly see as nothing but a complete fraud whose support is based on spectacle and telling what people want to hear even if it means resorting to outright bigotry and denigrating the ideals this country stands for. Despite the slogan, Trump isn’t the candidate who’d make American great again. He’s a guy who’d make America anything but great and possibly have liberals like me view the George W. Bush administration with nostalgia. And that presidency was a disaster with 9/11, two wars in the Middle East, Enron, the Plame Affair, Hurricane Katrina, tax cuts for the rich, the 2008 crash, No Child Left Behind, and more. To me, Donald Trump is an electoral fungus with cotton candy hair whose campaign represents the US at its worst. He is a spoiled and selfish brat and an unapologetic bully who I have absolutely no respect for not only as a candidate for president, but also as a human being. He is a man I cannot trust. Nor is he a man I think sets a good example for our country. And it’s because of these reasons and more I don’t believe that Trump should ever be president.

Donald Trump’s rallies have attracted a considerable turnout during primary season no matter how outlandish, ridiculous, and offensive he gets. Sure he’s a celebrity and a reality show host. But even before he ran for president I thought him as a complete turd. And I don’t understand why anyone could even support a candidate who has proven time and time again to be nothing but.

As you might’ve heard, the bulk of Trump supporters include working class whites who show up to his rallies in record numbers. Many of them tend to feel ignored by the politicians in Washington as well as feel that they’re in desperate situations with downward spiraling lives. I admit that working class whites haven’t had it very good since the 1980s with outsourcing and deindustrialization causing the loss of good jobs that were replaced by new ones that barely paid the rent as well as blighted cities. Not to mention, many of the jobs that replaced the ones that went are poverty level and non-union. Yes, I feel for these people and I’m very aware that they’ve been screwed by big corporations and Wall Street. I also understand why many working class whites tend to blame the poor and minority groups, which Donald Trump greatly exploits. However, what working class whites are actually doing is shooting themselves in the foot by embracing Trump and all he stands for.

CdEHv8SWwAAi59m

Whenever I see signs like these on people’s properties, I tend to wonder why on earth would anyone want to support this guy. I know many of Donald Trump’s supporters are working class whites, but still I keep asking myself that question. I can find nothing about this guy that suggests he’s presidential material or even a decent human being. And yet, no matter how many contemptible things he’s said, he’s somehow popular that people vote for him. This makes me sick.

Yes, I know working class whites are hurting and I feel for them. But so are minorities who are in the same situation with racism and discrimination to boot. Many of them work the degrading jobs for the same wages are just as equally unhappy with their situation as their white counterparts. Many undocumented immigrants have it just as bad, if not worse. While many people tend to criticize poor blacks for going on welfare, we should accept that there are plenty of working class whites on public assistance as well. And a lot welfare recipients white and minority alike have jobs, sometimes more than one. While there’s said to be a lot of crime and drug use in the inner cities, you can also say the same in rural Appalachia. Working class whites might see similar disadvantaged groups as “the other” as different from them and see anything that aims to support their interests as something to oppose. However, what working class whites need to realize is that these people of color aren’t much different from them, especially in their economic situations. As someone descended from working class whites, I see the poor and racial minorities as my brothers and sisters as well as support movements like Black Lives Matter and a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, not just because it’s right and a way to stay true to my faith. But also that a lot of policies benefiting racial minorities also help poor and working class whites. And American history is full of examples to support this. Reconstruction not only expanded suffrage to African Americans but also to Southern whites who weren’t able to vote before the Civil War. It was also a time when both blacks and whites in the South first had access to public schools as well. You have the West Virginia mine wars during the early 1900s where black and white miners alike fought for the right to unionize as well as better wages and working conditions and an end to unfair company practices. Then there’s union organizer Walter Reuther’s support for the Civil Rights Movement and his marching with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. since both saw the causes of civil rights and economic justice as intertwined. And the fact that these two ideas are intertwined with one another should be a reason why working class whites should support Black Lives Matter and a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

Here we have the super rich superdick at a rally in Mobile, Alabama among cheering crowds which make me cringe. Seriously, I thought the American people were better than to support a guy like Donald Trump. The guy is a complete prick and a sleaze on top of that. Why the hell could anyone seriously support this guy as president? I can’t understand this.

It’s a shame that many working class whites are willing to accept the economic status quo that’s screwing them, support men like Donald Trump, and blame their downward spiraling lives on the poor and people of color. I know it may not be something working class whites might not want to hear but even though I sympathize with their plight, the bigotry, xenophobia, and racism that many embrace has got to go. All what embracing Trump’s racist rhetoric does for working class whites is make them look like a bunch of ignorant rednecks supporting a candidate against their own best interests as well as makes the powers that be not take their concerns seriously. Yes, I know that many of these voters are unsettled by cultural and demographic change, but the US has been through this before and it’s nothing to be worried about. I know many of these people are unsettled over Obama’s ongoing transformation of the US as something no longer recognizably American. But previous generations have faced the same thing under other presidents and responded to backlash against changes the exact same way. What these people see as “recognizably American” either never really existed or was much shittier than you remember. I’m sorry but I don’t want to live through another Bush administration. Even though Obamacare isn’t Universal Healthcare and flawed, at least it’s better than what we had before and I do not want to go back to the old system. The fact that the Democratic Party supports rights for women, LGBT people, and racial minorities is not their problem. Their main problem is their tendency to compromise and downplay their sacred principles in favor of much needed campaign contributions from wealthy donors and corporations, especially thanks to Citizens United. This is especially true when it pertains to Democratic principles pertaining to labor rights, corporate regulation, health and safety, taxing the rich, and environmental protection. But I have to admit that Barack Obama has been a good president for this country and I’d hate to see him go. At least Democrats support policies like free pre-K, affordable childcare, equal pay for women, and paid leave. Not to mention, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are both viable candidates in their own right and I can see why anyone reasonable would support either of them.

Many people support Trump because they think he “tells it like it is.” If so, then how come Politifact has no true statements on his file? Not only that, but they made him Liar of the Year for 2015. Kind of shows what a phony he is.

I’ve often heard that many Donald Trump supporters believe that he’s not afraid to tell it like it is or be honest. I find that hard to believe since I’ve long known him to be a spoiled rich brat who’s a shameless opportunist and self-promoter. If there is any candidate in this election who has the guts to tell it like it is, my money is on Vermont US Senator Bernie Sanders and I can understand why so many people love him for it. Sanders might be a self-described democratic socialist but he mostly believes what he says and has a pretty good idea on what he wants to do if he’s elected president with plenty of detailed policies to back it up. If I saw a herd of working class whites fill a stadium at a Bernie Sanders rally, I wouldn’t question their judgement since Sanders seems like a guy who supports policies that benefit the little guy. Of course, he’s not perfect, his policies may not be realistic, and doesn’t have a chance in hell to win the Democratic nomination, but at least his appeal to many Democrats makes a lot of sense.

This painting of Donald Trump is by someone from San Francisco. It depicts the wretched presidential candidate holding money in one hand, making a Nazi salute with the other, and having a pile of shit coming out of his mouth plopped onto the US. I think it shows the idea I’ve long suspected in that Trump is full of shit.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, is mostly speaking to people’s frustrations and anxieties by telling them what they want to hear. Telling people that the way to “make America great again” is to deport 11 million people with ease isn’t “telling them like it is.” It’s lying on multiple levels. He also talks about how his standing as a “businessman” makes him an “outsider.” So unlike traditional politicians in Washington who are bought and paid for, he “can’t be bought.” However, we have to acknowledge that Trump has been a member of the 1% his entire life who wouldn’t be the man he is today if he wasn’t born into one of the wealthiest families in the country. Sure big money in politics is a major problem and the notion of politicians being bought and paid for by wealthy donors is part of how Washington conducts business as usual. Yet, understand that Trump is a massive hypocrite who’s bought and paid for politicians himself. Despite what he claims, he’s not funding his campaign all by himself for he probably has his share of wealthy backers. So he’s very much part of the political establishment. But even if most lawmakers were controlled by their contributors, the idea Trump could somehow move our system through sheer force of un-bought will is utter crap. It constitutes much of his candidacy’s Big Lie: never mind the policy details, never mind the separation of powers, and never mind the profound disagreements between the parties. Everything will be easy and terrific. Except in politics, accomplishing anything in politics is everything but easy and terrific. He’s not telling you like it is. He’s telling you like it isn’t. When he’s telling it like it is, he’s really conning people into voting for him by telling them what they want to hear or what will entertain them. He’s playing for an audience by appealing to voters’ frustrations, insensitivities, and other unsavory emotions. He is not like you. He cares nothing about you for all Donald Trump cares about is Donald Trump. You are his potential pawn to be used to get what he wants. His candidacy is only a reality show based on the public image he’s created and cultivated for decades that’s all spectacle that satiates a bloodlust and structured insanity. But behind that façade, there’s very little substance. While most presidential candidates typically draft detailed policies that they intend to pursue if elected, Trump has released very few. All the things he said he’d do just sound like simplistic bullshit by a guy who seems completely unconcerned about the implications in order to accomplish them. All delivered with the kind of maniacal overconfidence that’s seen as almost delusional. He not only lies his ass off but doubles downs on those lies. He denies long established facts most people accept even by experts in their field such as that New Jersey Muslims weren’t cheering on 9/11, vaccines don’t cause autism, Obama was born in the US, and global warming isn’t a hoax perpetuated by China to close US factories. Furthermore, it’s widely said that Trump doesn’t understand how government operates, advisers or no advisers. His foreign policy team has been described as “a collection of charlatans.” In debates, it’s been revealed that he didn’t know what a nuclear triad was (it’s a doomsday force of land based missiles, long range bombers, and submarine-launched missiles that the President can order if the US is attacked). Nor did he know that China wasn’t a party to the Trans-Pacific Partnership which is intended to counter the country’s economic influence. Not to mention, Trump has been known to change his political views like one would change their socks. This is not what you’d want in a presidential candidate.

Here’s a Twitter chat between Donald Trump and Coach Clint Swan about the Boston Marathon bombers and the Central Park 5 (black and Hispanic teenage boys who were falsely accused and falsely convicted of raping and attacking a jogger along with a few others in 1989. It was a gross miscarriage of justice that was mired in racial discrimination, emotional distress, and malicious prosecution). This shows that Trump is a very insensitive jerk and his racism is nothing new. What an asshole.

As for his public image, Donald Trump has built it around a bully persona pertaining to bombast, bluntness, and offending people. Unfortunately, it turns out that a lot of primary voters are attracted to jerks as long as their vitriol is directed toward the right people, even if it means inciting violence against protestors at his rallies. His supporters cheer when he insults immigrants, Mexicans, Muslims, women, other politicos, POWs and even the occasional Fox News host (but not in a good way at all). His supporters will tell you that he doesn’t bow to political correctness. Maybe, but perhaps he should. They’d also tell you that Trump says what people wish they could say. If by “people,” you mean “racists,” since Trump isn’t afraid to call Mexicans criminals and racists, promises to kick every Muslim out of America, ridiculed a reporter for being disabled, called POWs losers for getting captured, and said of a black protestor, “Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.” But only those from the white supremacy and white nationalists groups who back him are willing to admit that he’s the voice they always wanted since he’s mainstreaming such bigotry throughout the race, especially when many of his supporters believe in the notion of “white racism” which doesn’t even exist. And it doesn’t help that Trump hesitated to disavow David Duke and the Klu Klux Klan. But the closet racists of the country know what they believe in is ignorant bullshit who don’t want to risk becoming pariahs for exposing their bullshit. His bully persona has also made him exceedingly popular with people who believe he represents American ideals, especially the American promise of success being represented by great wealth (I’ll get to this later), which is troubling. The fact that millions of people are seriously willing to vote for this fuckwad as president disturbs me even more. Now I don’t expect my politicians to necessarily be saints. But I do wish that they’d have some capacity for basic human decency in public appearances.

However, we have to acknowledge that Donald Trump is an exceptionally shitty human being whose capacity for basic human decency is practically non-existent. He’s a trust fund baby with an aggressive competitive drive, an ego the size of Texas, and an inability to take criticism or a joke despite that he’s a walking and talking cartoon character. He’s a bully who takes any attacks against him and jokes at his expense personally and with a vicious streak. One woman was kicked off of Last Comic Standing because she made fun of Trump’s hair. He even threw a hissy fit over some magazine talking about his tiny hands. Really? Throughout his life he has continually asserted his sense of spoiled rich kid superiority with only the barest hint of doubt. He’s a thriced-married serial philanderer who treats the women in his life as objects, is well-known to make women uncomfortable around him, and openly admitted on national TV that he wants to bang his daughter. Yes, he said this. He’s a draft dodger who called John McCain a loser for being a prisoner of war in Vietnam for 5 years. His name is synonymous with success defined by wealth and luxury that wouldn’t have been possible if he wasn’t a trust fund baby who received an Ivy League education on his family name. Though he claims to be a successful businessman, he is anything but (I’ll get to this later). He has no class and wants to beat and grind adversaries to the ground. And no matter how much offensive, divisive, and destructive his rhetoric can be, he’s never ashamed, he’s never humble, he’s never gracious, and never apologizes. As for friends, well, he’s openly praised Vladimir Putin calling him “a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond” despite that Putin is highly feared and known to leave a trail of invaded countries and dead journalists. And it doesn’t help that his penchant for being an unrepentant asshole with a goofy toupee that it’s no wonder he’s been referred by Jon Stewart as “Fuckface Von Clownstick” as well as such a complete joke of a man that comedians find him so irresistible to mock. The fact Trump’s voracious hunger for fame, wealth, and power combined with his hideous muppet hair and morally bankrupt personality just gives the comics more ammunition to mock him. In short, he’s not a guy you’d want your child to look up to since he sets a very poor example to children since he makes Richard Nixon look like a boy scout. Fuckface Von Clownstick, indeed.

Trump-the-loser

While Donald Trump often says he’s a great businessman, he’s had a string of business failures seen here. While Trump often tries to brad his name as high class, it has repeatedly come to mean shoddy work, half-baked schemes, and sketchy characters. This is from a conservative website by the way.

Another thing that you hear from Donald Trump supporters is notion that Trump would make a good president because he’s a good businessman. However, not all great businessmen make great politicians and vice versa. Besides, while the goals for business are to make money, the goals of government are far more complex so being CEO of a major corporation is nothing like being President of the United States. And contrary to his claims, Trump is not a great businessman. Yes, he wrote The Art of the Deal that doesn’t mean he’s a great businessman. After all, some people from write relationship advice despite being shitty in relationships. But deal making and promotion are only part of being a successful businessman. And I’m sure these two aspects Trump masters beautifully. But he’s not a great operator and most business usually consists of overseeing day-to-day details that require the attention. Trump usually leads the running and operating on locations to managers he hires. Day-to-day details don’t interest him. His Atlantic City casino ventures went bankrupt 4 times and was forced to sell his other businesses like Trump Airways all of which employed thousands of people (Rolling Stone lists 13 of his business failures in all). In his offices, there are 2 or 3 floors at Trump Tower that might have 40 or 50 people in them. Sure he’s wealthy now. But that’s because he inherited a lucrative family business. And he only achieved real success when he turned from real estate development to franchising his name for other developers’ projects. That and his ethically questionable business practices. His for-profit Trump University is now being investigated for fraud. His earnings may be smaller than he says they are. His name on offerings like furniture, neckties, steaks, magazines, alcohol and other beverages, air travel, board games, fragrances, telecommunications, mortgages, and more which is said to stand for high class, high quality, and high cost. But a lot of these ventures failed and Trump is partially responsible for that. Thus, in practice the Trump brand has often repeatedly stood for half-baked schemes, shoddy work, and sketchy characters. Now thanks to him calling all Mexicans rapists and criminals, Macy’s has discontinued his line of menswear that it carried for 11 years and whose ties I’ve sorted during the 2014 Christmas season for a measly $8 an hour. Despite that Trump likes to brag about his success as a businessman, he is not a self-made man nor a man you’d trust to run your business venture. If Trump has refused to release his tax returns, chances are that he’s probably not as rich and successful as he makes himself out to be. And if he’s not interested in the day-to-day details of running his business, he’s probably not going to be interested in the day-to-day details of running the US Government. At the end of the day, he’s not the successful businessman but a trust fund baby who got really lucky.

trump_casinos_bankrupt_small

Here’s a diagram from the Onion on Donald Trump’s latest casino bankruptcies listing the reasons for their failure. And yes, it acknowledges that Trump inherited most of his money.

Finally, the main reason why Donald Trump should be president has to do with the fact that most Americans who know him don’t like him even within the Republican Party and his hometown of New York City. As a celebrity, he’s more of a guy most people love to hate and make fun of as a joke. That is until he ran for president and people started taking him seriously as a candidate. As a blogger and a liberal Democrat, I am free to say what I want about Trump and not get the short end of the stick. The Donald doesn’t know who I am. And if he gets angry on what I say about him, it’s just going to make him look like an idiot since I’m just a small-time blogger with a small following. But others don’t have the same luxury. If you pay attention, you might be aware that the Bush family and Mitt Romney don’t like him at all. The Koch brothers don’t care for him either and decided not to back him for now. The National Review did a piece on why Republicans shouldn’t vote for him. Noted pundit Glenn Beck has steadfastly opposed Trump saying, “I don’t want my children to look at that man and say, ‘Yeah, he’s my President.’ I won’t have that. I will not endorse it, I will not tolerate it.” This is coming a guy who had his own show on Fox News that made him notorious for crazy antics that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert mercilessly mocked until he was fired from the network. Nebraska freshman Senator Bob Sasse has even written a long Facebook post explaining he’s not backing Trump as well. Radio host Erick Erickson decided not to endorse Trump, because he’d rather, “put my country before my party and decline to help the voters in this country commit national suicide.” Leon Wolf from Redstate even went further saying that while he thinks Hillary would make a terrible president, he genuinely believes that she’d be way better than Trump.

This is a poll from Suffolk University and USA Today on what words best describes Donald Trump. Despite his own delusional self-grandeur, most people think the man is a jerk. This isn’t what you want in a presidential candidate.

Politicians who’ve had decided the back Trump, have only been willing to do so for the “good of the party” since he’s the presumptive nominee. Or back in the primaries, he’s the frontrunner and probably want Trump to do something for them, don’t want to be seen supporting Hillary Clinton, or feel their jobs depend on it. Take Chris Christie for instance whom Stephen Colbert likened to “a best man at a wedding he doesn’t believe in” when he endorsed the guy. John McCain has also endorsed him despite how Trump said that he’s not a war hero because he got captured in Vietnam. McCain would go on to say that Trump owed former POWs and their families an apology because these guys have dealt with a lot of shit. But McCain’s endorsement is understandable because he’s in a tight reelection battle in Arizona. But a private recording reveals he’s not happy about it and thinks backing him will hurt his chances. New Hampshire US Senator Kelly Ayotte says she’ll support him but not endorse him since she’s also in a tight reelection battle. I’m sure this means, “I’m playing it safe because I don’t want to alienate my GOP supporters in the primary but I don’t think endorsing the guy is going to help me in November.” Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval is another guy who’s backing him but only for the good of the party. Yet, he’s clearly not a fan and doesn’t plan to attend the convention. Finally, we have South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham who said the day when Trump won Indiana, “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.” This guy hates Trump so much that he even endorsed Ted Cruz despite previously likening the choice between the two as one between being poisoned and being shot. Recently, CNN has reported Graham has privately urged donors to unify around him though he hasn’t really endorsed him publicly yet. Guess it’s for the good of the party.

Here is New Jersey Governor Chris Christie behind Donald Trump after he endorsed the guy for president. Notice the look on his face. Is that a look of an enthusiastic supporter? No.

Then there are those who are undecided like Speaker Paul Ryan who I liken as a hypocrite and whose Ayn Rand inspired ideas libertarian economics are appalling, insensitive, impractical, and insane. But in this election, it’s hard not to feel sorry for him. Though he has intended to support whoever’s the GOP nominee in the past, he has admitted that he’s not prepared to back Trump-yet. “To be perfectly candid with you, I’m just not ready to that at this point. I’m not there. I hope to, and I want to,” he said on CNN. It should be apparent that Ryan is lying his ass off as if he’s a kid when his mom asks him whether he’ll support her decision to marry Mr. Douchebag. In reality, Ryan hates Trump’s guts and really doesn’t want to endorse him for president. He’s said that his party needs “a standard-bearer that bears our standards.” And it’s clear that the House Speaker doesn’t think Trump is the guy he has in mind. Otherwise, Ryan would’ve kept true to his promise once Trump clinched the nomination. But he can’t speak his mind and tell Trump to stick it because he simply can’t afford to since he’s in a tight primary congressional race with an opponent who’s already endorsed him. It doesn’t help that he’s House Speaker (a job he didn’t even want) and is the highest ranked elected GOP leader in the country. If Ryan decides to back Trump, it will be because he doesn’t want to lose his job. And he will back the man only when he absolutely has to, most likely at the Republican National Convention. Nevertheless, I can easily imagine Ryan having an effigy of Donald Trump in his office that he periodically uses as a punching bag and constantly swears at. As of now, Trump’s nomination has put him in a no-win situation where he’s stuck with either endorsing a nominee he thinks makes his party a joke at the cost of his personal integrity or possibly alienating his Republican constituents in his Wisconsin district who can vote him out of office and end his political career.

Here’s House Speaker Paul Ryan from Wisconsin after meeting with Donald Trump. Ryan said the meeting went well but he’s still not ready to endorse him. In reality, Ryan despises Trump and really doesn’t want to endorse him. In the end he may not have other choice if he wants to save his career since his primary opponent is a known Trump supporter.

Look, I know that many of you may not like Hillary Clinton for various reasons. I know she’s not a likeable person. I know she has a lot of baggage as a politician and public figure. And I know that many people in this country fundamentally don’t like her. However, we have to accept the fact that despite her many faults, there’s no doubt that Clinton is qualified for the job, has realistic and coherent policy ideas, and has proven herself reasonably competent in every political position she’s had. And when it comes to listing all the US presidents on the wall at your kids’ school, you’d probably be okay with her being on it, eventually. You may not think much of her or even agree with her ideas. Even at her worst, she still looks like the better choice for president than Donald Trump. In fact, you could probably say that a spilled can of antifreeze or a steaming pile of dog shit are better choices than Donald Trump. Many might say that Clinton is corrupt, untrustworthy, inconsistent and hypocritical. But she has proven herself to be a serious presidential candidate not once, but twice. If she’s elected, chances are you won’t need to explain to your kids why most Americans voted for her even if you didn’t. Hillary may not make the best president, but I can guarantee you that if Trump’s in the White House, expect him to be an epic disaster.

Here’s a cartoon of Donald Trump if he was at a job interview for the presidency. Note that his resume doesn’t make him seem like he’s presidential material. Doesn’t look good.

You can’t say any of that about Donald Trump. But one thing is clear, the man is a complete fraud and a conman as well as a wretched human being most people hate. He has risen to become the GOP nominee in the 2016 presidential race through soundbites filled with racism, sexism, xenophobia, turning his campaign into an empty spectacle, and inciting violence. But at the same time he has failed to show that he’s qualified or even serious about the job and what it entails. Elections aren’t reality shows. They are political events where we choose leaders and representatives to make laws and policy decisions that affect our lives. Presidential elections are serious business that our country can’t afford to elect a clown like him to the White House. If there’s any good reason why even the most conservative Republican should vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, it’s that she takes this election seriously and is more likely to exercise the presidency with the kind of decorum, respect, and dignity Americans deserve from a leader 0f the free world. And if you take this election and the politics seriously, then she is the candidate you should support regardless of what you think of her or your political ideology. I know it’s a bitter pill to swallow. But if you’re an American who loves your country and cares retaining at least a shred of dignity on the presidency after Obama leaves the White House in January, you’d have to be a complete idiot to support Donald Trump. Sure he may be entertaining and might say things you’d want to hear, but he’s not the kind of man who should be leading the country.

This is a mural by a guy in New York City. It’s of Donald Trump as a steaming pile of shit. I think it’s a realistic portrait, well, from a certain point of view.

Star Trek Treats from the Mess Hall

catwalk_01

While there’s not a lot of craft projects being made in Star Trek, there is a lot of talk pertaining to food. After all, Starfleet officers always need to eat somehow. And most of the time, a ship always has to have a mess hall unless you’re on Deep Space Nine. There, you have Quark’s Bar and Casino which is like Rick’s Cafe Americain in space. That or Mos Eisley Spaceport. Not to mention, there’s probably other places as well with some officers cooking their own food such as Commander Sisko who wouldn’t dare replicate his ingredients. Though spaceships on Star Trek tend to have some food, many would be lost if it weren’t for replication technology. Mess halls also have to account for resident aliens on the ship as well since they might prefer their food prepared differently than what humans are used to. For instance, while Captain Picard might prefer a lobster that’s already been in a pot, Worf would probably want to eat his while it’s still alive. And he might strongly prefer one from his home planet which might seem more menacing than its earth counterpart. This is where replication technology also comes in hand as well. Still, don’t ask me how it works. Nevertheless, outside the Star Trek universe, you have plenty of Trekkies who also have Trek themed parties with Trek themed treats. And this is where I come in. So for your reading pleasure, I give you Star Trek treats from the final frontier.

 

  1. Fans of the original series would enjoy these Star Trek cookies.
And it seems to consist of all the main characters. So adorable you'd just want to eat them up.

4. Starfleet jello shots always make great desserts.

Well, for adults 21+ anyway if they contain alcohol. But it consists of colors you'd find on the Starfleet uniforms.

This is especially if your name is Robert Picardo who played the guy. Interestingly enough, the guy initially auditioned for Neelix and add libbed during his audition for the Doctor. However, the Doctor on the show ended up becoming much more popular.

15. At Star Trek parties, it’s not unusual for gingerbread men to be Starfleet security officers.

Because we all know what happens to them on planets in the original series. After all, there's a reason why a lot of them don' come back.

17. On Starfleet, these jello shots seem well suited for any space vessel’s mess hall party.

Only for those 21+ if they contain alcohol. Available in 3 colors. Of course, those who get red shouldn't beam down to the planet for awhile.
