Win Disneys Fantasia on Blue Ray and DVD

I cant imagine how... or why..... but I now have that stupid Saturday night at the movies song stuck in my head.
If you are anything like me... so now, will you.
Sorry bout that.

When the Midwife and I were younger, we thought that could have quite possibly, have been the Vinniest song we had ever heard.

Words from my childhood dictionary--Vinny,  Pronounced Vin- ee and Vinniest, was a word we had invented.
It was a slight rip off of Saint Vincent De Paul, or Vinnies, and It was created one Saturday afternoon,
 when my mother would drag us around from auction house to op shop to garage sale, searching for vintage furniture.
My sister and I would pick up many ghastly figurines or fabrics, and cringe. 
It was used to describe anything cheesy,  displeasing to the eye, or any cringe worthy behaviour from another individual.... think warm brown and orange  or... Liquorice all sorts...
or this pose, commonly known as the Ahoy Captain......

Nicked the pic from this guy... murderbydavid
We used it with gusto in hopes it would catch on.
It didn't.

Vintage takes on a new meaning for me these days.

Lets be honest though......
There are somethings that should never be brought back.........


Then there are some that are, beyond all logic are... and certainly shouldn't.....

Curtain pants anyone?

15 hot fashion buys


Then there are the keepers,

The classics...........The ones that never left.....

This one was born in 1940

Rated: G Fantasia Running Time: 125 minutes Fantasia 2000 Running Time: 75 minutes Price: 1 -Disc DVD $39.95 2-Disc Blu-ray Value Pack $49.95
Now available on Blu-ray™

This classic is never out of style,
Did you know that Mickey was voiced by Walt himself in the Sorcerer's Apprentice?

This one captured the attention of Ms 2, for the entire length of the movie!
This is no mean feat.
Using the latest animation techniques, Walt Disney’s original inspiration of eight animated sequences is recaptured in an unforgettable journey of masterful imagery and breathtaking animation.

My Fav bit?
This one is packed full of bonus features.
The  Academy Award® nominated short, Destino
is a must see.
This seven minute short film is a collaboration between Walt Disney himself and Salvador Dali.

You know Dali... the genius behind this one...


 Accompanying the short is a feature length documentary, Dali & Disney: A Date with Destino.
Exploring the relationship between Dali and Disney.
Historically entertaining.

To celebrate all things new......

The great folk at Disney gave me one to give to you!
