When does loving a show turn into hate-watching? Right about.....

Now?

Guys, this is heartbreaking.  Heartbreaking!!  For three seasons I have adored Once Upon a Time, and  it's just not doing it for me right now.  We're half-way through the Frozen arc, so I am keeping hope alive that better things are just around the river bend.

The name of last night's episode was "Breaking Glass." Watching it was more like walking on broken glass.  You can read all about it over on the Disney Driven Life, and then tell me how wrong I am to be hating on Elsa and the Snow Queen storyline.

OUAT: M-I-C, K-E-Why are you destroying my favorite show???

Seriously.  Season 4, Episode 4.   "The Apprentice."  In which the movie references become so smack-you-in-the-face ridiculous, that I'm not sure how much more I can take.

Check out everything I've got to say on the matter, over on the Disney Driven Life.  And then come back here and persuade me to tune in next week.

What am I supposed to call you, Captain Hand?

My Family Went to Shakori, And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt

Back in 2006, my sisters and I hatched a plan to travel to the Shakori Hills Grassroots Music & Arts Festival.  We spent a couple of weeks airing out tents and gathering supplies...and then the morning we were supposed to leave, the Atlanta sister, the one who is a fairly regular music-festival-goer,  called and said, Uh, yeah, so it's going to rain all weekend, we're not going.  Two out of three of us followed suit, and I never really mustered the enthusiasm to try camping at a music festival again (although I did attempt putting on my *own* music festival....but that's another story, never mind, anyway....)

OUAT: Episode Three...and My Charlie Brown Vacation

Hmmm.....blogging about OUAT seems to be using up all of my blogging time.  I'll get on top of that, for reals.  Especially because I have a very pathetic story to tell you about my recent trip out of town. Trust me...you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll laugh AT me....it'll be terrif.

Meanwhile, go watch this week's OUAT and then tell me how much you're hating totally loving this season!  You can check out my thoughts over on the Disney Driven Life!

Michael Socha, the Knave of Hearts on Once Upon a Time:Wonderland,
turns up in this episode as Will Scarlet.  Scarlet?  Hearts?  And they're
the same person?? THIS IS WHY I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!

It's Once Upon A Time time!

Delays on the DLL server combined with me not watching Episode 2 until Monday morning means I'm a little late to the recap party this week....but come on, surely you saved your opinions on David's lovely locks for me?

Go check out my recap of "White Out" over on the Disney Driven Life, and tell me what you thought!

Into the [steampunk][ish] woods....

The main reason I was absent from my blog for so many months over the summer is that I was pouring all of my time and creative energies into directing and designing a local production of Into the Woods.  This production was really a dream project for me, and I was really lucky to recruit a creative team that was all-in when it came time to take the images out of my head and realize them in living 3-D.
