Alain Littaye has press photos of Hong Kong Disneyland all dressed up for it’s "Year Of The Mouse" promotion to tie in with the Chinese new year. I’m digging this sculpture set up in the central plaza.

- While you weren’t looking The Little Mermaid opened on Broadway. Here’s video from the opening night. Which brings to mind this bit of dialog from The Incredibles. Bob Parr: "What are you waiting for?" Boy on Tricycle: "I don’t know. Something Amazing, I guess." Bob Parr: "Me too."
- Congratulations to "Pushing Daisies" and "Jump In" both of whom won Directors Guild Awards last night.
