Unlocking the Vault

Unlocking the Vault

Have you ever been craving an old fashioned movie night and gone to the store to purchase a Disney Movie, only to find it unavailable?  Everyone knows that Disney is genius at marketing and separating you from your dollars, so what is up? It is the dreaded Disney Vault.

The “Disney Vault” is the term used by Disney for its policy of putting many of its most popular animated videos on moratorium.  Each Disney film is available for purchase for a limited time, after which it is put “in the vault” and not made available in stores for 7-10 years until it is once again released. Disney explains that it is a way to keep the titles fresh for new generations.

Don’t worry, you will probably always be able to buy Frozen.  There are only 16 movies which have been identified as “vault worthy”.  What are the 16 movies?  Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lady & the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King.

Currently there are a lot of Disney movies available on Netflix.  That relationship is ending in 2019.  Disney will start two of its own subscription streaming services that will ultimately compete with Netflix, but have access to the entire Disney portfolio.  I know I will be a subscriber!snow white

Snow White -Love or Hate her?

Snow White -Love or Hate her?

I have never really bonded with Snow White.  I just can’t relate to a girl who sees a house of 7 men and says, “I can cook for you and clean for you and make your house a home.”  I can’t cook and I only clean when throwing a party.  Hot Hubby, on the other hand, loves Snow White and sees a philanthropist who wants to serve others.

Recently, I have begun to feel like Snow White, so I can like her a little more.  When Hot Hubby moved in, he brought a beautiful cat named Tiger.  Tiger has lived in rural Nevada his entire life and now resides in a neighborhood of Phoenix.  In his new home, Tiger has a doggy door, so he can come and go as he wants.

Living up to his name, Tiger is a hunter and a very good one.  Tiger hunts for lizards, rabbits, birds, and mice.  At first, he brought them home and ate them in the living room.  It was messy, but tolerable.  Then he showed some mice the doggy door, so they came in and made a home.  Tiger noticed that I was not feeding Hot Hubby, so he started bringing home live snakes and rabbits trying to train Hot Hubby to hunt.

Now I am living in Snow White’s cabin in the woods.   Wild animals are running around my home.  Snow White is teaching me to love my situation, sing a happy song and hopefully train the animals to clean my house.   I will let you know how that goes.snow white
