“You think you own whatever bar you land in. The stool is just some dead thing you can claim! But I know every rum, and gin, and vodka gives you life, is a spirit, has a name.” Fangirls, this week we’re taking it back to the Disney renaissance, with Pocahontas. Pocahontas sings about punting with all of the colors of the wind, but here we’re going to drink the colors of the wind (mostly reds and blues, but it’s good stuff).
Hey Disnerds! It’s been awhile since I’ve had much to say to you, but Disney has been doing some things recently, that are … interesting choices.

Wingapo, Fangirls! As things started to get extra chilly this week, Emily & I knew that some soup had to be in order. After accessing the pantries, we found a recipe for a tasty three sisters soup.

It was so easy to make and super delicious, a meal fit for Chief Powhatan’s homecoming.

Most villains seem to want power, and villainy is the means to that end (Ursula, Jafar and Scar, just to mention a few). But Ratclifffe wants something simpler. He wants gold. If all of the savages die at his hands, that’s okay too, but his main goal, is gold.
Now, I’m not a huge fan of the Pocahontas storyline, but I can definitely appreciate the art and music.
