    Beyond who must not be named becoming president, this year already looking good. I think I might be close to getting my groove back when it comes to fanfics and hopefully I’ll be able to go to Disneyland later this year. Hopefully 2017 will be an awesome year.

    Although if rumors that I heard are true about Woody Woodpecker’s Kid Zone getting the boot also said that they’re going to find a way to keep E.T. due to the fact the Spielberg was PISSED when the ones in Hollywood and Osaka closed.

    Not that I care, I’m one of those kids who found E.T. creepy… and I still do… when I went to Florida in 2015 I sat out the ride while my friend rode it a couple times… I’m not even kidding…

      That’s great! I hope 2017 rocks for you. 2016 was a lousy year for me (and not just for *that* reason), so hopefully 2017 can only get better. I too hope to find a ‘New Groove’ on my blog so I can take it to a whole new level (including transforming it from a mere blog into a full-blown website with our own videos and stuff). As for E.T., I wasn’t creeped out by it, I just found the film to be a mawkishly sentimental bore.

  2. The Real Silverstar

    Put me down as someone else who wasn’t impressed by Avatar and who has never seen The Walking Dead. The former actually bored me in the theater, and as for the latter, I’ve never understood the fascination with zombies and my attention span is too short to try to keep up with continuity-heavy shows. If it’s not a short-form comedy or a zany cartoon, I’m rarely interested.

  3. Universal can’t get rid of ET, it’s in their contract with Spielberg.

  4. Not sure if it was mentioned below, but you left out Volcano Bay opening at Universal in May, Jerk.
