Disney Addicts? Coloring Book Used to Smuggle Narcotics

31 Mar

I’ve heard a lot of rabid Disney fans call themselves addicts. But according to The Smoking Gun, a couple women in New Jersey have an entirely different claim to the term.

In a creative bid to smuggle drugs into a New Jersey jail, two women allegedly dissolved narcotics into a paste and then painted the drugs onto pages of a coloring book (featuring Cinderella and Snow White) that were mailed to a trio of inmates.

Any Pumpkins Mysteriously Appear in New Jersey?

23 Apr

From wcco.com:

Officials in New Jersey are asking for the public’s help in recovering a stolen vehicle.

But as CBS station WCBS-TV found out, this is one cold case the likes of which you’ve probably never seen before.

“Uh, I’ve never seen anything like it before,” said Belleville Police Capt. Mark Minichini said.

It seems a 7-foot tall and 8-foot long, 1,000-pound gold Cinderella carriage, a feature in the town’s annual Columbus Day Parade, has vanished into thin air. Stolen.

Bibbidi bobbidi boo!

Jedi Academy to Replace Endor Village?

5 Jul

Bittersweet news for Star Wars fans . . . MGMstudios.org reports that:

Disney has filed plans with the Orange County Comptroller’s Office to begin construction on a permanent stage for Jedi Training Academy. According to the plans, the stage will be built where the Endor village currently is.

I’m stoked about the Jedi Training Academy becoming a permanent feature at Disney-MGM Studios, rather than just a special event during Star Wars Weekends. But man I love that Endor village, especially in the evenings where you can hear the little dudes celebrating.

Big hat tip to MouseExtra, not just for bringing my attention to MGMStudios.org’s posting in the first place, but also for being a big freakin’ Star Wars geek (yay!):

The description of the project offered within the official files is “to design, engineer, construct, and install an outdoor stage reminiscent of the Imperial Bunker on Endor from Star Wars”. Not withstanding the fact that the bunker was in Return of the Jedi and not Star Wars [emphasis mine], we can only assume that such a stage must be for the Academy, although in the file I read there is not mention of the Academy.

Perfect timing for this, given how thoroughly the interweb is abuzz with speculation about how Walt Disney World will counter Universal’s upcoming Harry Potter “themed environment.
