Well, there’s my earworm for the day:
Let it go, let it go

something something I don’t actually know the words so those three words will be tumbling in my head for a good little bit.

Huzza.

Not.

OTH, maybe it’ll replace Wig Wam’s “Do you wanna taste it, do you really wanna taste it” from the opening credits of Peacemaker (which, by the way, is fucking batshit fucking crazy fucking insanity and I’m loving it – John Cena is perfect).

Today’s prompt from Linda G. Hill for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “Let go.”

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “let go.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “let go.” Enjoy!

Of course, my brain immediately inserted the “it” because, well, that’s just how it goes.

Now, the ability to let go is essential to being able to live a productive life. It’s also not easy – as anyone who’s been married but is no longer married can attest. It’s hard to let go of failures. Sometimes it’s as hard – and dangerous – to not be able to let go of success.

Let go and move on. It is the way.

But that’s too deep for a Saturday morning before gym and my brain is on Disney. I love Disney movies (not so much of a fan of the corporation, but between The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, Pixar, and all of the old and new Disney movies I just can’t stay away).

I have always loved the look on Sebastian’s face here like, “Imma ’bout to set some sweet sweet lovin’ in motion.”

I haven’t seen every animated Disney movie, but I’m probably close.

What’s amazing is the consistent run of excellence across decades. There have been ups and downs, but overall excellence – from moving (the opening montage to Up) to hilarious (Timon and Puumba distracting the hyenas) to bittersweet (the end of Toy Story 3) to all life’s wisdom (Baloo singing the Bare Necessities).

Stream of consciousness interrupted by gym – woot, 190 on the 15 inch box squats. The legs are way on their way back!

Still stuck on Disney. I love Disney. I also love shows like Peacemaker equally as much. I no longer consider that weird, or consider it much at all, it just is what it is and I just like what I like.

Jungle Book remains a top 5 favorite movie and The Little Mermaid is close. I love being able to watch Disney anytime without rummaging for a DVD. I think I even still have some VHS tapes, though they’re about as useless as tits on a boar at the moment given the lack of a VHS player.

Was just idly thinking of rating them, but that just might be too difficult beyond Jungle Book and The Little Mermaid at the top of this list. The music and voice acting is incredible in both. King Louie just wants to be like you-oo-oo. Sebastian wants Prince Eric to go on and kiss the girl. The chef just wants to cook Les Poisson while Colonel Hatha marches.

Then there’s Hercules which is Lauren’s favorite. I’ve watched it in whole or in part probably 100 times. Much like my Mama could read Green Eggs and Ham without actually looking at the book – Green Eggs and Ham is AWESOME by the way – I can close my eyes and just watch the movie. You mean HUNKULESE!

Robin Hood is vastly underrated. The newer movies with a Latin-vibe are excellent, especially Coco (though it’s a Pixar film). Encanto was enchanting, though I initially found the animation Book of Life off-putting, I really enjoyed that one too. Didn’t so much enjoy the music in Encanto.

Frozen was fun – especially Olaf. I snowman allergic to flowers made me gigglesnort. Raya the last Dragon was gorgeous, but, just meh. Mulan, especially Eddie Murphy, awesome (that’d be Casey’s favorite).

Soul. Aladdin. The Lion King. Alice in Wonderland. Beauty and the Beast (animated and live action with Hermione . . .  shoot, blanking on her name). Big Hero 6. Fox and the Hound. Dumbo.

Aaaaaaand now I might just watch some Disney.

I’ll never let go of my love of animated movies, even though my girls and now grown so I’ve lost my “beards” to see them. Whenever I go alone to see one now, I always think of going to see The Little Mermaid in the theater.

The mothers/grandmothers herding their small children did not expect to see two teenage boys stroll into the matinee to see The Little Mermaid. Heads swiveled. Lips pursed. Brows creased. Me and Clyde happily sat down, ate popcorn, and enjoyed the hell out of that movie.

On another day, I might’ve gone into a diatribe at how annoyed I get at folks who think enjoying a kid’s film at 50 – not to mention my delight in collection action figures and toy soldiers – is somehow not manly.

Fuck those people and their sad inability to let people have joy in their lives. I mean, I don’t get the Beanie Baby thing, or anime, or Hallmark movies, and many, many other things, but, egads, life’s hard enough without judging what brings delight to someone.

Let it go.

And now, instead of the diatribe, a few videos!

And because Idina Menzel singing always reminds me of Rent, a little vie boheme! This song always gives me a bit of a giggle. And, yep, sometimes when I watch Frozen, I think that, “yep, she had a nice bottom in Rent.” My brain is . . . odd in the connections it decides to make sometimes.

Don’t pick a prickly pear with the paw, when you pick a pear you’ve gotta use the claw, but you don’t need to use the claw when you pick the pear of the big paw paw.

Ariel. Her name is Ariel.

The glory that is the opening credits of Peacemaker. Batshit. Fucking. Crazy.
