The Neighbors

Holiday Gift Guide 2013: ABC Presents

Well, hello there! I am back with a series of gift ideas for you to give the Disney fan in your life. I will separate them into various categories, with this time being ABC. Every guide will also include a Toys for Tots option, which is something that isn’t that expensive and would be great to donate this cheerful holiday season. I loved creating these last year, so I am so excited to do them earlier this year so you have a plan of action come Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

1. Songs from Scandal: Music for Gladiators~ I love “Scandal” as much as the next person…okay, maybe a little more, but one of the constant highlights of the hit show is the fantastic soundtrack that accompanies the drama. Music for Gladiators is a funky mix of 70’s hits and current day tunes and a great compilation of songs that will definitely put you in a great mood. Warning: Listening may cause you to want to don a white Burberry suit and exclaim “IT’S HANDLED!” to everyone you see.

2. “The Chew” Canvas Lunch Tote~ Originally ridiculed for replacing a beloved soap opera, “The Chew” is now a staple for the ABC Daytime line-up, a fun addition at that. This cool lunch tote is BPA-free and is a great thing to hold your new recipes that you discovered on the show.

3. “The Neighbors” Season 1 on DVD~ This is one of the best comedies on TV right now. The story of a New Jersey family moving into a suburb populated by aliens is a riot that never takes itself too seriously, constantly breaking the 4th wall and referencing itself “Can we do this quickly though, Shark Tank starts in 20 minutes.” I highly recommend gifting The Neighbors Season 1, then going over to the recipients house and binge watching it with them.

Disney News Round-Up!

There have been a lot of random Disney news stories appearing recently, so I thought I would bunch them all together so you don’t have to go searching! This will cover Parks, ABC, Disney Channel, Consumer Products…and MORE! (I realize I sound like a Ronco Rotisserie ad…after you read this you can set it…and forget it!)

  • Electric Holiday– This has become one of my “I am the only Disney fan that is SUPER EXCITED for this” moments (along the same lines as the Hercules 15th Anniversary Pin and the unveiling of the new Disney Parks promotion “Limited-Time Magic”). If you are unfamiliar…Barney’s NYC partnered with Disney this year for their annual holiday window display. This year follows Minnie and other Disney characters as they get ready to hit the runway wearing some of Barney’s most popular designers. This did get some¬†controversy when the concept art was released and it revealed Disney characters in stereotypical super skinny model bodies. Personally, I feel like since this is animation, there is no argument (everything in animation is over-the-top anyways…), but it still sprouted over the interwebs. The teaser looks wonderful and I am overall excited to see the products and the full short!
