Concept art, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Blaine Gibson, 1961
As Pongo the Dalmatian pulls his human, Roger Radcliffe, through the park, they pass other dogs and their humans, all of whom seem to resemble one another. Do people start to look like their dogs, or vice versa? An ageless question, wittily asked in a sly bit of animation.

So I saw Frozen yesterday, and I nearly cried at….pretty much everything. It took everything I had to not cry since I saw it with my dad and little sister. But everything was amazing.
I loved Elsa. I really connected to her, not only with being alone and trying to hide everything, but also with trying to protect her little sister. Feeling upset when she is hurt and not knowing what she can do.
Anna felt like my inner child. So excited about everything, saying everything out loud and not really thinking about it, but also having the courage to talk to a sister she hasn’t seen in a while and believing in her. As far as I could see, both Anna and Elsa were amazing.
The animation! Oh gods did I love the animation! I practically sat through the whole movie with my mouth wide open. So beautiful and great. Stunning…especially with all the ice and snow magic Elsa can do.
The songs were awesome! “Do you want to build a snowman?” is the saddest song I have ever heard. “Let it go” was incredible and such. “Fixer Upper” was adorable! Loved the rock trolls!
All in all, I enjoyed it very much. The only thing I didn’t really like was Olaf…I kinda thought he took away from everything and was there for the comedy relief when Anna was struggling. But I would definitely go see it again. Maybe alone so I can ball my eyes out without people judging me.
So I’ve become obsessed with “Let it Go” from Frozen. Both the Demi Lovato and the original (from what I heard) version. Both are beautiful and are helping me get through tough times right now. I’ve always loved Disney music the most since it’s help through everything. I know I won’t be disappointed when the movie comes out.
