Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life For Me...

Comcast makes a hostile bid all-stocks for Disney. Assuming their debt, that makes a $66B deal.

It would also make Comcast a media giant that would be very difficult to compete with. I think this bears watching.

Drink up, me hearties. Yo ho.

Feb. 17th
Disney denies Comcast.

We'll see how Comcast returns the ball.

"You cheated!" "Pirate."

(...is it worse to have background music playing in your head, since you can't sing along?)

On the other hand it probably will have little effect on the content of entertainment. Because how much worse can it get?

I knew it was all over when Disney started releasing the "Continued Adventures of..." crap. I mean, Beauty and the Beast! Come on! She tames him with her love, kisses him, and gets a prince. Game over, man. End of story. Happily ever after and stuff.

But then, then he turns back into a fluff-ball for television shows, and sequels, and all that crapola..!

Marketing whores the like of which could put George Lucas to shame!!!

As for getting the song stuck in your heads: Ha! I win!

"...Really bad eggs..."
Yes, I am evil, why do you ask?
