Look at the logo for Disney, such as this one. Link

My mind has always read it as "Gisney" but then my mouth instinctively replies "Disney". I've only just had a good look at it and realised that there actually is a D there disguising itself as a G. My whole life up to now has been a confusing mess and my brain is just a useless treadmill in the house of a fat guy.

Anyway, that was just a side note. I watched Beauty and the beast the other day and I am struggling to find the morale of the whole thing. DIsney, by a standard, have to include some sort of message for the audience to take away so they can be Christian. Aladin had one I think, if you're homeless, not insane, have perfect teeth, have some kind of hyper intelligent animal companion and magic at your disposal; everything will work out fine. It was probably actually something to do with "being yourself", "never giving up", "don't judge a book by it's cover", "anyone can be a hero" or any other form of advice which is barely even applicable to modern society, unless you're 7 and exist primarily in your imagination.

The advice of, "Don't judge a book by it's cover" is nonsense anyway. You definitely should judge a book by it's cover, that's why people bother to design the cover in order to express the theme of the book. If a book about pirates had a picture of robots on it, it would be completely misleading and pointless. The same is applied to people, we dress in the way we want to be perceived by others. If you get **** off" tattooed on your face, people are naturally going to assume you're a maniac and are best not to be approached. This is a sensible assumption to make and it could very well prevent you from being stabbed in the arm and or face. Alternatively, if you wear a suit, people will assume you have a certain level of decorum about you. There are obviously exceptions to this but, it's such a minority that it's not even worth putting into consideration. I very much doubt Mr. "**** off" is actually a beautiful and caring individual.

Anyway, yeah, Disney and morales. I watched beauty and the beast and here's what happened, in short.

Something about a pretty girl
Something about a man/bear/pig thing in a castle
a talking clock
"Never go in the tower!!"
Pretty girl goes into tower
monster goes insane and starts trashing the place
girl is terrified
clock is terrified
Girl and monster end up falling in love
he's not a monster anymore.


It's about domestic abuse really. The monster gave the girl no other reason to love him other than fear. (I think there was a part when the girl found out that the monster liked music but, everyone likes music, who doesn't like music? get real.) The monster apparently turns into a human once they fall in love but, this looks like a classic case of a beaten wife in denial. It's very common for victims of domestic violence to be blind to the reality that they are living with a monster and instead, pretend everything is fine and they are married to a lovely prince who only hits them when they burnt the toast and deserve it.

I found it hard to find the morale in UP as well. If someone dies, GET OVER IT YOU BORING OLD BASTARD! PEOPLE DIE, STOP BEING SO MISERABLE AND GET A DOG OR SOMETHING!

Anyway, I've lost the momentum I had when I started this so, I spose I'll just be on my way now.

....how strange. I was thinking about Disney movies today too! Except I was thinking about all the sexual references in the movies. Heh. And I always thought the same thing about the Disney signature.
