The Perils of Being in 3D: This Version of The Lion King’s Hilarious
For people of a certain age, there's no denying that the seminal scenes from Disney's The Lion King had an impact on their childhood. Granted, not everyone was a child during the '90s, but those that were know the sting of Mufasa's final scene all too well. It's sad, and depressing, but rarely if ever has the phrase "spooky in a surreal way" been added to that mix. Someone somewhere considered this an oversight and made a video to solve this problem.Read on...
Old Canadian Men Caught Singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” in Coffee Shop [Video]
Ever been to a Tim Hortons a few hours before closing time? Things can get real seedy real quick within the seemingly innocuous restaurant.

Jeffery Thomas’ Twisted Princesses
There's no shortage of dark!Disney fan material on the internet. It's just something that people do with family-themed favorites from their childhoods: try to make them thematically relevant to their adult sensibilities. Jeffery Thomas' Twisted Princess series stands out from all the Goth!Tinkerbells due to sheer creativity.
After completing six initial drawings, Thomas gave in to the feedback and wound up doing seven more. With the latter seven, he included descriptions of how he saw each character's transformation. Most of these quick, alternate universe stories are of women who, since their rescuers have failed, are fighting for love, revenge or freedom with whatever was on hand, and by whatever means necessary.
My personal favorite is Megara, pictured above, but I'm a sucker for any reference to the Fates. More, below.Read on...
