A little bit of news, a little bit of history, a whole lot of Disney.

From my blog, I settle once and for all which "Alice in Wonderland" is better: Disney's 1951 animated classic, or Tim Burton's 2010 revisionist interpretation.
I caught the midnight showing of "Alice in Wonderland" Thursday night and, like many Disney fans, immediately started comparing Tim Burton's somewhat dark vision of Lewis Carroll's classic tale with the 1951 animated film.

I'm horrible when it comes to video games. Over the years, I've lost track of how many adventure games I've never finished because I got bored, distracted by life, or just reached a roadblock in a game that I quickly gave up on.
