(Almost But Not Quite) Infinite Possibilities

With Disney Infinity beginning to cancel its online services at the end of the month, I thought it was high time to talk about this game that has enraptured me whilst my computer has been on the fritz. Though I've had it for a while and had experience with similar games before, it's only in the past months since its sudden cancellation that I've begun truly ulocking its secrets and my enjoyment.

This will be a long review with multiple facets.

I. Am not. PREPARED!....yet....

Remember when I promised a post on the Legion Beta?

Well my computer was dying and too many people were on it so due to unplayable lag I was only able to get to the end of the Demon Hunter starting experience before I had to give up due to nothing loading.

So now that the game is out and I own it, I may as well wait to progress a bit farther before I talk about it.

This won't be like Warlords of Draenor where it completely fall under my radar.

More to come.


I'm a little late to this due to working on getting my laptop up and running again, but I wanted to take some time to mourn the passing of a comedy legend.

Gene Wilder. Many people of my generation remember Gene best as Willy Wonka, but while he certainly gave the best performance of the character that I've seen, I prefer the Burton film in every other category.

No, I remember Gene Wilder as Fredrick Frankenstein ("Fronkensteen"?). As Leo Bloom, and the Waco Kid. Arguably Mel Brooks' greatest collaborator, though he had much success on his own as far as talent is concerned.

Wilder was a clown, but one with dignity and grace. Softspoken, but with a manic energy hidden just below the surface that would explode when you least expected it.

The last time I saw him, he was the Mock Turtle in a wonderful made-for-TV "Alice in Wonderland" adaptation. That was in 1998. After that, he dropped out of my and most others' radar. Mel mentioned getting his blessing a few years back for the YF musical, but other than that no signs he was still around.

It was sad to hear that he was in poor health in recent years, as well as the tragedies he went through in his life. But for us? All he gave us was smiles.

Say hi to Gilda, Zero, Marty, Madeline, Richard, and Peter for us.
