Disney’s Villains’ Revenge(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the PC game Disney’s Villains’ Revenge for Windows & MAC.

 

In this game, The Villains steal the happy endings of their respective stories resulting in Captain Hook sword fighting Peter Pan(who is now a decrepit old man), the Wicked Queen putting both Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs into a deep sleep with her Poison Apples(with no prince to break the spell), the Queen of Hearts placing Alice’s head & body in separate locations within her Hedge Maze, the Circus Ringmaster Strips Dumbo of his ability to fly and forces him to do his humiliating skydiving stunts.

 

In this game, you team up with Jiminy Cricket & the Blue Fairy(Pinocchio) to help Peter Pan defeat Captain Hook(Peter Pan), save Snow White from the clutches of the Wicked Queen(Snow White & the 7 Dwarfs), rescue Alice from the grasp of the Queen of Hearts(Alice in Wonderland) and liberate Dumbo from the humiliating stunts forced on him by the Circus Ringmaster(Dumbo) as well as recover & restore all the happy endings stolen by the respective villains of each said story.

 

In conclusion, I believe that this Disney game is another one of its good VS evil masterpieces while it also involve point & click puzzle solving scenarios.

Wishbone and the Amazing Odyssey (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the PC game Wishbone and the Amazing Odyssey for Windows & MAC.

 

In this game, Wishbone (Our favorite snack & book loving hound) is accidentally sent into a virtual storybook setting of the Odyssey by Homer where he unintentionally takes both the role & identity of Odysseus.

 

In this game, you follow the story of of Odysseus for by doing so will you eventually free Wishbone from this virtual storybook setting.

 

Along the way, you meet timeless characters from the Odyssey consisting of Eurylochus (Odysseus’ 1st Mate), Polyphemus (cyclops & son of Poseidon), Athena (goddess of wisdom), Poseidon (god of the seas), Circe (witch), Tiresias (blind prophet), Hades (god of the underworld),  Zeus (king of the gods & god of lightning and thunder), Calypso (demi-goddess), Penelope (Odysseus’ wife) and Telemachus (Odysseus’ son).

 

In conclusion, this game teaches you history, mythology and culture as you play. Thus, I hope you find this game as educationally fun as I do.

Jeff’s Eccentric People, Places and Things: J. P. Patches

image from lunchwithcasey.com

 

Will someone please explain to me whatever happened with the image of clowns? When did they go from beloved bringers of merriment to soul-eating demons, pedofile serial killers, and even a depressed living metaphor for the meaninglessness of life. From the Joker to Pennywise (who is floating back to Derry, Maine on the big screen this September) to real life evil clown John Wayne Gacy, and the “Evil Clown Sighting,” fad last year doesn’t help.  In fact, I think the only mainstream clown people do not fear is now just Ronald McDonald, well maybe except for health inspectors and PETA.

 

First of all I want to apologise to any readers who have coulrophobia, but I feel that this may help you get over your fear. Besides look at that glowing, grandfatherly figure with a red nose. Do you really feel terrified by good old Chris Wedes? Known by children of three generations in Washington State as Julius Pierpont (J. P. to his friends) Patches, Mayor of the Seattle City Dump.

 

A local gem of great value, J. P. was the star of one of the longest local American children’s television. The character first appeared in 1953 in the Minnesota station WTCN Channel 11 played by Daryl Laub. He created the clown and played him for two years, however he left for a rival studio and Chris Wedes took over the role. Chris, already a professional local actor, was unsure at first; as he already was playing several characters on various shows and didn’t want to be overworked. He soon took to the clown like a frog takes to water and even took him to Seattle in 1958. The clown would perform on his own Emmy-winning tv show for over twenty years on KIRO-TV with over 10,000 on screen hours viewed. The show would be improv without a script, with most of the characters being played by the same person. There was Ketchikan the Animal Man, Miss Smith the delivery woman biker, J. P.’s arch enemy Boris S. Wort (Second meanest man in the world!) the Swami of Pastrami and especially not forgetting the Mayor of the City Dump’s pain-in-the-kester love interest Gertrude. All played by the versible and equally talented Bob Newman. One special gimmick the the show had was an amazing magical machine called the I.C.U.2.T.V. This miraculous device, which was most certainly not cardboard with a tv camera in it, J. P. could look into the homes of young Patches Pals (name for fans) on their birthday and tell where to look for presents, that had nothing to do with parents sending in letters ahead to the studio. The I.C.U.2.T.V. also worked as a teleporter to send J.P. and others to North Pole to help Santa with his naughty and nice list for Christmas

The J.P. Patches Show aired twice a day, six days a week, for the first thirteen years. The next eight years it only ran in the morning and just Saturday morning for the last two. While the cast was small there were quite a number of famous guest stars including cartoonist Al Capp, the Harlem Globetrotters, Colonel Sanders and many more. The show entertained both children and adults and had over 10 thousand hours of on-air time. It had at least 100,000 viewers especially in the Puget Sound area and southwest British Columbia. The Mayor of the City Dump also visited the Seattle Children’s Hospital in the Laurelhurst neighborhood for the sick kids free of charge. The show was canceled in 1981 but this was far from the end of J. P. Patches

You can’t keep a good clown down apparently. Chris Wedes and Bill Newman would continue to perform their roles in television specials as well as numerous public and private events across the state. Sadly even this circus has to close its doors eventually. On September 17 2011 J. P. put on the makeup and tattered, old, button covered, hat and coat for the last time at Seattle’s Fishermen’s Terminal. Fans all hoped for him a long and happy retirement but that did not come to be. Chris Wedes died ten months later on July 22, 2012 from a long battle with Multiple Myeloma, a type of cancer for white blood cells. He was 84 and survived by his wife, daughter and granddaughter. All of Puget Sound was moister than usual from the tears of Patches Pales of all ages.

 

Like many other long running local children’s show host in other states, J. P. Patches remains a minor cultural icon and almost a folk hero to the people of the Rain City. There are clips and episodes are on VHS, DVD, and the Internet. Archie McPhee, Seattle novelty company that created the “Horse Head Mask” for the internet menu, has among other weird goodies, J. P. Patches lunchboxes, socks, Christmas Tree and scented car ornaments. Along with Oregon’s clown Rusty Nails, J. P. is said to have inspired the Simpsons’ Krusty the Clown and had a shout out in the episode “Radio Bart” on Krusty’s “Birthday Buddies” list. The biggest monument, aside from the memories in fan’s hearts, is the statue, Late for the Interurban, in Fremont, Seattle, dedicated on the show’s fiftieth anniversary

Disney Magical World 2 (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles & I’m here to review the Nintendo 3DS game Disney Magical World 2.

 

This game is the 2016 sequel to the 2014 3DS game Disney Magical World with even more Disney worlds and characters to encounter, assist and spend time with.

 

The game takes place in a magical town called Castleton where you not only manage a cafe near favorable Disney characters such as Mickey, but you also can travel to six Disney worlds.

 

The six disney worlds are comprised of Disney’s Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and Winnie the Pooh.

 

Throughout this game, you discover ghostly beings of unknown origins are invading Castleton as well as all six Disney worlds and you must use special magic wands to use Disney magic to deal with them.

 

In each of the six Disney worlds you can attend Anna & Elsa’s Snowman Festival, have adventures as a mermaid/merman under the sea with Ariel, mine for gems with the Seven Dwarfs, surf and hula with Lilo & Stitch, help tackle trouble in Wonderland and have fun both farming and hanging out with Winnie the Pooh & friends.

In conclusion, I find this game truly Enchanting and am certain of it to be one of the embodiments of disney’s greatest magics.

What I did at the Art Jam

On Saturday I volunteered at the Seeds For Autism Art Jam. I came early so I hung out with my friends and looked at the schedule. When the event started I went to the make and take area and showed visitors how to make the caterpillars out of pom poms, glue and clothespins. Eventually I had to head up front to pass the buckets to the people who had too much merchandise to hold. Soon the fashion show started. I really liked Camille, Sydney and Sonja. Camille was beautiful and had skills. Sydney was sweet and stylish and Sonja was confident. Then it was time for me and the guys to do some comedy. Jeff sang a funny song written by Gilbert and Sullivan. Jake read some funny stuff Ronald Reagan said once and I used my special gift of making jokes about anything. I ate some lunch with Camille, and then Amy needed help with some improv about going green. I had a good time spending time with my friends. I enjoyed helping the kids make caterpillars. I liked petting the guinea pigs. I got to meet my friends parents. I enjoyed doing my comedy act people liked my jokes. Then eventually I went home.

 

The lost, little guinea pig.

 

Hi! My name is Max and,I know what you’re thinking, he’s a tiny, young, abandoned little pet with no collar. Now, Im waiting for the pet shop to open up their doors. A life on the run isn’t always what I wanted. I had it good until my stupid cage mate wanted to dare me to see how high I could jump on the trampoline and touch the top of the cage. Now, you’re probably wondering why did you take the dare in the first place? And you would be correct! But let’s start at the beginning. The day of my birth. My parents were the greatest. I was born in a rescue mission in Australia. Back then, you didn’t have rules, there was only a preserve, the den, my parents and me. Every couple of months a lucky little guy got to be picked out to become a candidate for adoption. You know who got picked out this time? It wasn’t me. It wasn’t my parents. It was always some other guinea pig that was fatter, cuter, fluffier and overall better looking. That was my life. I had everything I ever wanted; Food, shelter and loving parents that looked out for me. Then one day, I decided to ask mom and dad if I could take a walk outside my den. “ I don’t know sweetie” my mother said. “I promise, I’ll be careful”. “I would like to go and follow whatever that noise is that I hear every day” “you mean the human pets?” his mother replied? “Yes, so that’s what I hear” said the guinea pig uhmm… honey are you ok?” said his mother. “ Life is nice inside a rescue shelter but, if only I could see what’s beyond the grassy plain” he said. “But sweetie, you are-WE-are safe in our home. Besides there are hungry animals that would love nothing more than snacking on a plump, young, juicy guinea pig.”  “Now, go to sleep.” Our inspection is tomorrow and you may be picked out by a nice family.” she replied. “Ok…. mother” Later that night, I was sleeping when I had a dream. I was following a trail of cookie crumbs to what knows where and it led to a giant cookie on top of a mountain. Beyond, I could hear a voice calling me. “Come, join us; we have more cookies” more cookies…cookies….coookkkkiiiiessss………………………………………………………………….”Cock a doodle doo! I awoke the next morning . “Mom! Dad!” I had this really weird dream last night”. I was following these cookie crumbs and this voice kept saying ‘“come,join us we have more cookies”’! Then a giant cookie on top of a mountain!” Outside a guard was eating a snack and leaving crumbs behind as he walked back to his shift.” It looked like-” I looked around for a good example to tell them. “It looked like that” He pointed to a trail of crumbs on the floor at the bottom of his cage. “I must follow the crumbs!!” he started to run but, as he did his mother and father caught him by the skin of his tail. “You’re not going anywhere young man!” said his mother. “ thats right” his father agreed. “Now, eat your breakfast!” she demanded. After breakfast, I played with Mr. Amigo, my squishy mariachi toy. “Not fair! Not fair!” I was sad that I couldn’t leave the shelter. I thought my parents wanted more for me but I couldn’t even convince them that wanted to explore the world. I squashed that squeaky toy as hard as I could. Pop! Out came a little snack. The rescuers liked to put little goodies and treats inside our toys as a reward for good behavior. But I hadn’t been good. What was this treat doing inside “Mr. Amigo” so I ate the treat. “Yummy”! I exclaimed. Hmmm… let’s try this again. I ate one more. Then, I popped out another and another… and another…. “Oooohhh, I don’t feel good.” things were going great ! I would cry wolf then rescuers would come get me and then I would be taken to the infirmary where I would be loaded with Gas-X and released to quarantine where I would stay for a couple days and eventually be released into the great beyond. It worked and that’s how I ended up here.

The end
