Robert, its when you start buying the made-for-video sequels that we need to worry...

You're also missing The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King...

Trumbo: Dunno, but they also get around to remastering the picture, and I don't know if they've done that for Robin Hood yet.

Yes, but they're all really expensive. Particularly the last two there, which are out of print.

I thought those just came out on DVD.


Not that I would know, mind you...

They've been released on DVD, but Disney like children to "rediscover the magic together" (or somesuch piece of marketing speak), which is their way of saying "We're going to stop selling the discs after a few months to keep the prices high"...

Good choice. You can't deny the quality of the classics, and Tarzan isn't bad. I especially love Mulan, and Pocahontas was quite fun as a kid (I had the Pocahontas Barbie.). Mulan is absolutely excellent.

I am glad you have finally seen the light. Also, remember what I said about Mulan. It is a great motivational movie. Whenever I feel gloomy, I watch "I'll make a man out of you", as that song really gets your spirits up and tells you never to give up. It's so beautiful, the part where Mulan reaches the top of the pole never fails to bring a happy tear to my eye.

Indeed! "The Lion King" is my all time favourite. Aladdin is just great, and I was a sucker for "The Little Mermaid" as a kid (I always used to draw her sitting on that rock where she sings "Aaaaaa-aaaaa-aaaa-aaaaaaa! That's why I want to be human!" [the lyrics might have been a bit more elaborate...but that's how I knew them as a kid.). I can't even remember if I actually ever saw the movie as a kid...but I must have, because I *knew* what it was about, and knew the songs. But I just can't remember. I know we never had the video.

Indeed. That's what I hate too. Do you know how much of a bother it was to get the "Atlantis: The Lost Empire" double DVD after a year had passed? I hated the single DVD cover, and I wanted to have the double DVD in any case.


Which reminds me, you should get "Atlantis" too. That's one underappreciated Disney movie. But it's great anyway. No songs in this one, though.

Don't forget to choose a tattoo that you'll like when your 40+ and more as well. Tattoos also fade with time, after 15 years colours may have been absorbed by the body and eventually it looks kind of greysih and dull. I recently had my bumble bee re-done and added some cerise flowers as well since my bee was kind of lonely.

Don't worry, I've been thinking about this for a looong time. I know that these things are for forever, and that's why I had a hard time to decide what I really wanted. This one is one I'd really enjoy, because it's not something everyone has (though there certainly are other geeks with the same idea), but it's still something that certain people (namely, other geeks ) might recognise.

And I've always dreamed of designing a tattoo myself, but I've found it's more difficult than it sounds (I tend to draw things too detailed. While you can make detailed tattoos, I do want a design that is a bit more stylised, not a painting).

Oh, and in other news, I'm planning to get a greek land turtle (bred in Germany, not imported) as a pet after I am finished studying. That's something else for life.

Here, turtles are illegal to keep as pets.

It's not illegal to keep them as pets here, it's just illegal to import them from Greece. Years ago they were very popular, so that too many were imported, thus endangering the animals in Greece. Then they were very hard to get for a long time, due to that. But now there's more and more new ones coming from breeders in Germany, and those are not illegal to get, as they don't affect the population of turtles in Germany.

And I love turtles.

I'm assuming they're illegal to keep at your place for similar reasons.

EDIT: I looked it up, and it's not only in Germany that it's regulated that way. It's due to a decision by the CITES stating that only turtles that were caught in the wild prior to that decision, and the descendants of those already caught may legally be kept as pets.

You could always get a mock turtle instead, Erwin
