I'm a big fan of Disney, or I used to be when it stood for something other than over hyping overrated tween "stars". I miss the days of Mickey and the gang, animated movies that were *GASP* hand drawn, and classic Disney programming on Disney channel.
This weekend, the Disney folks are letting their 3 Satanic spawns, the Jonas Brothers (don't get me started on that mess they called performing with the living legend, Stevie Wonder, because that was just demeaning for Stevie) release some kind of concert film. Many of my students are 15-16yr old females and the mere mention of these boys makes them wet their panties. I don't understand the fascination.
I've listened to their music and while it isn't the greatest in the world, nor is it my cup of tea, it doesn't suck. However, because they are part of the Disney tween movement, they are being made out to be the next coming of The Rolling Stones or something, when in actuality, they're just another boy bad whose probably won't last. I'd say they wouldn't, but they are brothers, after all...wait...so were the Jacksons...but these boys don't have anyone as charismatic as Michael was.
So, by now you're wondering what's up with the title, am I right? Well, one of the girls who was dripping wet at the mention of these over hyped adolescents said I need to come out of the dark ages and stop being such a Disney conservative.
If being a Disney conservative means I don't want to be bombarded with Hannah Montana and the Jonas Bros, as well as the lack of true Disney programming on the Disney channel,then I'll gladly accept the title. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
