There’s few genres that are nearly as cool as the Western genre, and the Martial Arts genre. Both have been mainstays in cinema for quite some time, for good reason, because they both house some of the greatest films of all time. So it’s no surprise that combining the genres offered something fun and exciting. Mixed with a fish out of water comedy tale, ‘Shanghai Noon’, as well as it’s sequel, ‘Shanghai Knights’, come together as two of the most entertaining films of the early 2000′s. These two films were in constant rotation back when they were on DVD, but ever since blu-ray took off, I’ve been hoping that these two would eventually get a release. They seem like prime candidates for the format, with their fun action scenes in all the films, as well as some beautiful shots of the American frontier, the victorian London setting, and awesome costumes. While it was a long wait, Walt Disney Pictures has finally released the two films in a double feature pack, much to my delight, and probably to the joys of many Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson fans as well.
Back last month, we broke the news to you that one of Disneyland’s most popular attractions, Space Mountain, had closed as a precautionary measure due to OSHA citations. In case you missed it, you can read the whole article here.

Here is the word from the World Famous Tikiman.
Every single day, on the shore of Echo Lake inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can see Gertie in all her 1930′s “California Crazy” architectural goodness. She loves to pose for pictures and is very photogenic.
Unfortunately, she is only open seasonally for the business of selling ice cream and treats. Catching her on one of these days can be tricky. Today, however, we got lucky and stumbled on some May 2013 dates and hours of operation for Dinosaur Gertie’s Ice Cream of Extinction!
The following information is subject to change but comes from an extremely reliable “anonymouse” source:
A 37-year-old man from North Carolina was charged with robbing a credit union after police say he told investigators that he felt “pressured” to fulfill a promise to buy his girlfriend’s children tickets for a Disney cruise vacation.
Satellite Beach police reported that the man, who has been identified as Cedrick Royce Swinson, and his girlfriend drove overnight to Brevard County to take their Disney cruise when he found out that the cash for his final payment on the tickets was not available for withdrawal.
“He claimed he had money in the bank but that he couldn’t get access to it or that they had a hold on it,” said Cmdr. Brad Hodge of the Satellite Beach Police Department. “He said he felt pressured to follow through with his promise to take (the girlfriend and her two children) on a Disney cruise and decided to rob the credit union.”
