    What's your age?

    Congratulations! And not on this board, you're not.

    I've read somewhere that it's an IP thing, mostly. Disney's rights on the older Renaissance movies are about to run out apparently, meaning that anyone could then produce a cheap knock-off under the same name. So now they're doing those live-action remakes, and could then claim that their rights on those are infringed on, not the (usually much more beloved) originals. Of course, if they make a buck along the way, Disney sure won't mind.
  3. Since Carol said I was free to make one, here goes . So here's that cute Puppy Love Superbowl commercial again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQB7QRyF4p4 Feel free to fill this thread with all kinds of animal adorableness - your own pets are, of course, the most adorable of them all .
  4. Kids no older than 2 don't pay *anything* at Disney, as a rule - neither food, nor tickets, nor lodging, assuming the family's staying at a Disney hotel. Also, there's this thing called Baby Swap (bit long to explain but basically, saves on queueing time). So those parents probably enjoy Disney just fine (not that there's anything wrong by having fun at WDW as an adult ), with no extra cost for the little one, and the kid's just their excuse for going because they don't want to admit that the trip is really for them.

    Game of Thrones

    Season 6-ish ... it's a bit hard to tell from what I gathered from Wikipedia (I stopped watching in S2, but I read all the books, though it's been a while), but there seem to be bits and pieces of stuff happening in the books showing up all over S6 parallel to new plot. Besides, there were differences in plot between series and books before; then again, some stuff that shows up later they got from GRRM and it's probably going to be the same in the books (like Jon's parentage, which was foreshadowed as far back as book 1). So S6 is mixed and from S7 it's mostly new, definitely not in print yet (or, let's be realistic, ever *sigh*).

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    Unfortunately, no, that's not how Moftiss did it, though they came closer in the first series. Admittedly, though, it's easier with Good Omens because the two guys in question aren't even guys, strictly speaking, and therefore the question of whether they even have any sexuality as commonly understood is open to interpretation. But that's exactly the point, that "open to interpretation" bit. Nobody in Good Omens, say, ever indignantly states that they're not gay, or gay for that matter. They are clearly shown to care a lot for each other, and just what that means is left for the viewer to decide.

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    Husband and I finally got around to watching Good Omens on Amazon Prime. What a delightful little series! Moftiss, take note (and given that Mark Gatiss had a tiny role in one episode, he at least should) - *that* is how you treat two guys who are the most important person in each other's lives. Just show their devotion (and the actors did a marvellous job of it) and let the viewer sort it out on their own. Also, best soundtrack ever.

  9. Why assume the cat stole the sausage, anyway? One look from those big pleading eyes was probably all it took.

    Star Wars

    In other news, Benedict Cumberbatch wasn't just being evasive when he said he's not in the new Star Wars film, he really isn't.
  11. That's St. Stephen's, and it's one of our biggest tourist attractions (still a surprisingly nice and quiet spot in the hustle and bustle of the inner city, though).
  12. The big white buildings are a hospital. The red roofs are just red ceramic roof tiles, they're still widely in use here (and in much of Europe, afaik). Here's a pic of our city centre: Obligatory "still on topic" pic:

    The great toilet-paper debate!

    As for how I did it, wouldn't you like to know? Seriously, I went into the "hidden posts" area of the mod section, found one of yours that wouldn't be missed (it was simply stating you don't use Tapatalk, and hidden because the discussion became redundant since the initial problem was solved by Tim), deleted its contents then moved it in here. And yes, since it was older than anything toilet-paper-related, the thread then took it as the first post.

    The great toilet-paper debate!

    I've done a bit of mod trickery and now the thread is Carol's (also quite old, but that was the best I could do, sorry). Just please edit something into your opening post, @Carol the Dabbler.
  15. Why only cling to one interpretation of what was shown on screen, though? Sounds boo-ring to me. Besides, if the field of literary criticism was so narrow-minded it would have died out a long time ago. If there can be a dozen different interpretations of Hamlet, then why not of Sherlock, or indeed of Holmes at large? As there are, in fact, think of The Seven-Per-Cent Solution for instance (the book by Nicholas Meyer, I mean) and its Moriarty. And in the spirit of diversity, why not combine your theories and make everything after Reichenbach be Sherlock's dream, because he came down a bit faster than his hasty calculations' results suggested and hit too hard and now lies in a private hospital (organized by and his location and identity hidden by Mycroft, natch) with a concussion? Would certainly explain a thing or two about the later seasons.
  16. I found this nice aerial shot of our neighbourhood online. Our house is in that pic (and at that distance, you can't see what a mess the garden is) . Required "still on topic" doggie pic:

    A quick google search turned up this: https://www.cineplex.de/film/apocalypse-now-final-cut/364533/mannheim/ , which states that the show date is mid-July, so cinemas in your area might not have started ticket presales yet (ours usually only do about two weeks in advance).

    What song is stuck in your head?

    Husband and I were at the Phil Collins concert yesterday, which was fantastic, only now I've got Follow You Follow Me stuck on repeat in my head.

    And because sharing is caring, you want us to suffer along with you, right? Well mission accomplished, but at least it's a nice song.
