New Dora the Explora?A couple weeks ago Nick and Mattel released this teaser for a new, 'tweenaged Dora.......and parents FREAKED OUT!!!!!From Yahoo news: "NEW YORK When toy maker Mattel, working with Nickelodeon, announced earlier this month that a "tween" version of Nick's beloved "Dora the Explorer" cartoon character would be unveiled in the fall, the response was overwhelming ... overwhelmingly negative.Dora the streetwalker. A sexed-up version of a children's icon. A poor example for kids.Those were just some of the terms tossed around the blogosphere after Mattel released a silhouette of the "new" Dora, whose image was drastically changed from the endearing tomboy look Dora fans grew to love, with her bowl-cut hairdo, T-shirt and red shorts. This new Dora appeared to have long flowing hair, and was wearing what seemed a scanty skirt, emphasizing her long, shapely legs."Well, everyone freaked out so bad, Mattel and
Wander Over Yonder by Craig McCrackenYou may or may not know, but my husband is Craig McCracken, creator of The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. A couple years ago, Craig spent some of his free time drawing out some vignettes of a strange muppet-like, zen, hippie creature/guy who wanders his world observing nature--- why? Well, we don't know, but it made for some really cool drawings, so we made some shirts, iron-on patches and a "sketchbook" featuring a compilation of the inked artwork to sell at San Diego Comic Con.The stuff hasn't been available since that convention.... until now!!! Visit CraigMcCracken.net and check out our soulful Wander swag!Tees come in men's and women's sizes, and the sketchbook comes SIGNED by Craig ---- if you would like a dedication, just slip us a note in the "message to seller" section when you check out with P

My friends need your help!Some of you who have followed me in the past may know about this wonderful little zoo called The Wildlife Learning Center. WLC cares for a few dozen wild and exotic animals and treats them as "ambassadors" to help teach the public about wildlife conservation. What is so wonderful about WLC, is that many of the animals in there care are rescues. Many were illegally kept as pets and were either turned over or turned in to WLC for proper care. Others were animals born in the wild, but injury or acclimation to humans kept them from being able to survive in their natural habitats. Still others were exotic pets who grew too large or otherwise difficult to care for by their original owners. Without WLC, all of these rescued animals would be seriously ill or dead.Besides offering animals topnotch care, WLC is an amazing place to visit. This zoo is small, so visitors get to see the animals more up close and intimately than larger zoos. Even

We got off to a bit of a rought start with things like Las Pegasus Unicon, Alicorn Twilight and Equestria Girls. But as time has gone on, as with most shake-ups and flare-ups, we adapted overcame, and perceived. It's a wonderful thing being a part of this community. We have a new year of brightly colored candy horses ahead of us and...well, knows what is to come after that! I'm sure there will be more bizarre, unwanted developments (Rainbow Power is looking to be the next likely development!) but whatever comes I plan to still be here and hope you will be as well!

is it just me, or..Has there just been a really sudden HATE spree towards Frozen lately? Yes yes, from the start I expected people who were going to hate the movie, they have their opinions. But for some reason I've spontaneously been starting to see people starting to hate the guts out of it just now, like I've never seen it happen as much before. And they always seem to express their hatred towards it in such an "in your face" attitude.I've probably just haven't been catching up on the Internet, I guess.
