Disney Planning It's A Small World Movie With Jon Turteltaub Directing - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

fanboy-news-network:

Hey look. I wonder if we should have a family outing to go see it.

NO. NO WE SHOULD NOT. 

Also, the Guillermo del Toro Haunted Mansion movie better come out FIRST, or I will raise an army of ghosts to march on Disney HQ.

Behind the Scenes, Pug

While shooting with kambriel we had a little doggus interruptus in the park. Her name was Lily, and she was the Tasmanian devil of pugs. She was spinning around in a crazy pug whirlwind, wheezing and grunting and generally freaking out. The crazed look on her face in the last panel says it all.

Speaking of fabulous hats … and wonderful people, and a ridiculous dog …

I adore this movie. I’m going to eventually turn into one of the aunts.

(Also, any movie about a witchy girl named Jillian who made a bad choice in boyfriends and has to deal with the consequences? Yeah, certain members of my chosen family insisted I see it when it came out.)

For Inconspicuous Spells

victorian-witch:

Use tea bags to create incognito spells!

You could buy pre-made blends of herbal tea that suit your needs, then open up the tea bag and supplement it with small amounts of additional ingredients and close it back up with needle and thread or a staple. Write the spell/symbol/sigil/etc on the outside of the bag or on the little tag. Then steep and consume if you’ve used all non-toxic ingredients, or add to a bath, etc. You could even put in it a bowl and scry with the liquid and do some tasseomancy with the tea leaves later!

You could also make your own tea bags with coffee filters
or parchment paper for cooking, just fold the ingredients inside and like before, staple or sew it closed! Sewing it closed adds the extra benefit of letting you dangle your own little tag off the end of the knot you tie and using a corresponding color of thread.

Now that I think of it, if the elements are your thing, you’ve got all the elements covered in one item: the heat of the tea for fire, the steam and fragrance for air, the herbs for earth, and the water for well … water! Similarly, this could be used as an offering if you use ingredients that appeal to whoever you’re making an offering to.

This is a damn clever idea. 

While the Evil Bunny Alliance is staunchly against B A T H S in general, Percival Bunny reluctantly agreed: since he was going to be filling the role of Travel Bunny this coming week, he probably should spruce up a bit.

I believe the most rational mind can play tricks in the dark.

I need to rewatch this. Such a gloriously atmospheric, creepy movie.

Also, if Kambriel, the StuntHusband, and I ever form a band, we’re totally naming it Petticoat Necromancy.

OMG YES.

YES YES YES.

Soooo, kambriel on violin, brokenponycutiemark on piano, me on vocals? Do we need to get a drum machine? 

A THERAMIN. WE NEED TO BUILD A THERAMIN.

kambriel my darling, you need to come back out to Seattle. RIGHT NOW.

Also, if Kambriel, the StuntHusband, and I ever form a band, we’re totally naming it Petticoat Necromancy.

Petticoat necromancy. Giving new life to feral petticoats that have deflated by combining them into a larger, fluffier garment!

Because babybat the Nano just played it, a song that will always lure me to the dancefloor, much to the confusion of various people through the ages. The StuntHusband and I have a whole routine to this, complete with mirroring each other’s hand gestures. Club-going with us usually turns into the Elder Goth Variety Show.

missblackribbon said: Madam Venters, isn’t that a general “Goth Life” thing and not something that only applies to Elder Goths?

Well, yes, but I’m assuming the younger goths don’t spend quite as much time staring blankly at a shelf and muttering "No, really, it was RIGHT THERE, I’m sure of it!" I could be wrong about that.

(Come to think of it, I’ve always been like that, age has nothing to do with it. You’re right, it is a Goth Life thing.)

Elder Goth life: wandering around the kitchen with a plastic cap on my head (time to re-pink the streaks), making coffee, and trying to figure out where the devil my iPod nano is hiding in the library.
