    It's got to suck that he died while his life's work is on its last legs. If he died last year I wouldn't be so upset.

    I have never seen such a crowdfunded project trying to attain such a high amount of money!

    I'm pretty sure he's only looking for billionaires to crowd-source this. He's got to know relying on small donations is a non-starter.

    So, that crowdfunding campaign barely budged since he started it.
    He is instead bidding to buy it on his own, which he should've just done in the first place.

    As good as his gesture is It's going to be really hard keeping those Toys R' Us from heading back to where they've been in the last few years.

    Which is weird because if he had done that, all of these stores wouldn't be going through liquidation in the first place. It's a little too late. There will be a lot more logistics involved than if he hadn't started that Kickstarter and waited for it to fail.

    While wondering why exactly snow is flurrying so close to the end of April, I just had a thought about meeting a kid who felt disappointed with Olaf's Frozen Adventure, and telling him a "things were worse in my day"-type story, about how Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas not only seriously pales in comparison to its predecessor, but runs, like, three times as long as does Olaf's Frozen Adventure.

    (I forget if I admitted this here, but I dislike The Enchanted Christmas so much, that I twice asked Lindsay Ellis to review it, before she did so.)
