In Which Jenn Is A Truly Cultured Music Student

Look, you can make fun of me all day and all night for being on the Hot Topic mailing list, but their Disney collection is unmatched. So when I got an email informing me that they had just added a bunch of new dresses to their Disney collection, I eagerly clicked through. Cute, cute, cute, I thought, scrolling along, with reasonable but not galvanizing enthusiasm… until I saw THIS dress. I think we can all agree that I NEED this dress. Under normal circumstance I would slap it on my Christmas list, but then I can’t wear it during...

In Which Jenn Considers Disney Movies Across Generations

My ballet teacher recently purchased a CD of piano arrangements of Disney songs that we sometimes use for class. It’s such a new recording that it includes a rendition of Frozen‘s “Let It Go.” My teacher tells me that whenever she plays this in her kindergarten-age pre-ballet class, they ALL immediately begin singing the lyrics and complain when she turns it off even though they’re done with the steps. So: I think it is safe to say that Frozen is the seminal Disney movie for current little kids. You know what I mean, right? Sure, you watched lots of...
