Visualize “The Jungle Book” (mainly because it opens in theatres today)

junglebook

Growing up with the animated versions of the Disney movies that are now being made into “live-action” incarnations, there is a twinge of skepticism that I feel whenever I see a trailer for one. But as I watch the trailer for “The Jungle Book,” it feels a bit different than the rambunctious cartoon I watched as a young child. I’m actually very curious how the story is told and how the animals are created digitally. I want to embark upon a dream-space in the jungle, where I can imagine myself as Mowgli, and reflect on the relationship between humanity and nature. Will it end up being just a glorified rehash of the 1967 animated version of the story? Or will my inner nostalgia buff be satisfied with enough nods to the former version, while still introducing new ideas and imagery? I will be seeing it tonight, and hoping for the latter… to rediscover an old text through director Jon Favreau’s eyes. Let the adventure begin.

NATIONAL POLKA DOT DAY: Minnie Rocks the Dots

Happy National Polka Dots Day! We hope you’re rocking the dots so hard today, and in case you missed it, you have enough time to go home after work and change into a dotted ensemble before hitting the red carpet preview of “Minne Rocks the Dots,” an exhibit that will take fans on the journey throughout the Disney mouse’s fashion history and her influence on trends throughout. The best part is that Minnie will be making an appearance wearing a custom dress designed by Christian Siriano. Disney history buffs and fashion fiends will both be sated by the iconic photographs, archived imagery, and sketches dating back to the beginning in the 1930s to present day.

Top 5 Disney Games from Back in the Day

Top 5 Disney Games
If you play games, you probably already know that Disney has licensed out and produced a lot of video games over the years. We were discussing this wealth of video games in the office, so I decided to compile my list of favorites from back in my day, the roaring early 90’s. While these aren’t necessarily the most mind-blowing games, all of them strike a special chord with me and are a lot of fun to play. I hope you have the time to check some of them out if you haven’t already played them.

The Future – Vision and Reality, Part 1: Envisioning the Absurd Future in the Past

“The only thing that we can be sure of the future is that it will be absolutely fantastic.” — Sir Arthur C. Clarke, 1964

This is part of a series of blogs on visions of the future. Although rather complex when accurately taking into consideration socio-political, ethical, and cultural aspects, we shall focus primarily on technology and the user experiences that we expect to find in the near or distant future. But before we examine our current ideas of the future, let us go back in time and see how people envisioned our presence. As tempting as it is to laugh off historic visions of the future today, it might prove helpful to examine them. Common mistakes seem to be made whenever we try to envision the future.
