Which is the Most Feminist Disney Princess of All Time?


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s a reason that Disney Princesses are looked at as The Perfect Women.

By lots of people.  Little girls want to grow up to be princesses.  Young women cosplay as sexy Disney Princesses.  Men want to be the hero that rescues the princess.

Yes, there’s a lot of desire from all aspects when it comes to who is, who wants to be, and who wants to be with a Disney Princess.

Top 10 Happiest Places to Work


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has said it before and we’ll say it again: if you’re not happy at work, then you need to find a new opportunity.

Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule.

If you know that what you’re doing now is merely temporary, then no need to rock the boat and jump ship before you’re ready to do so. And there are different ways to measure happiness – sometimes the job you’re doing now may not be making you happy per se, but it allows you to do other things that do.  Like that overnight shift may not be ideal, but it frees up your daytime hours to spend time with the kids or attend school to be able to advance to the next career choice.

Issues with Disney’s new GAC disability pass program


By web gangsta | Published:

By now, you’ve likely heard about the alleged scam being run by some enterprising business-oriented folks who would use their disability to a tourist advantage by renting out their services — and ability to go straight to the front of the line — as a Disney tour guide to rich families.

It’s been a long common “trick”, where anyone with a wheelchair could go to the handicap entrance and board a ride at a Disney park immediately.  But due to those aforementioned business transactions, because of the actions of a few Disney had to make dramatic changes to their policies and procedures.

The Top 100 Global Brands for 2013


By web gangsta | Published:

Building a global brand is the ultimate goal of any major business.

It’s one thing to be successful on a local or hyperlocal level.  It’s quite another feat to take that same local presence and expand that to a larger stage.  Many have succeeded, but even more have failed at doing so.

What if Disney Princesses were Real?


By web gangsta | Published:

This holiday season, little girls all around the world were presented with pink gift boxes filled with costumes and plastic jewelry all designed to fulfill their every wish and dream to be a Princess.

And it’s reinforced with various “Princess” clothing, “Daddy’s little princess” bumper stickers, and more.  Raising a girl to be self-confident in herself is one thing; to raise her to believe that being a princess is the end-all goal is another, which is why some people tend to take a negative view of the continual Princess merchandising deluge found in toy aisles everywhere.

Even so, there have been many variations on the classic Disney Princess stereotype over the years, whether it be COSPLAY, PHOTOGRAPHY, or FICTIONALIZED CONTINUATIONS of the classic stories, such as the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by author Anne Rice.

But with all the gender-endoctrination of princess-dom, there can be one way to make the life of a Disney Princess not seem as glamorous as it could be:

Learn how to tell a story, the Pixar way


By web gangsta | Published:

A few months back, Web Watch told you about how Hemingway chose to write: be as concise as possible, don’t say in six words what you say in five.

Storytelling – whether it be written or verbal, for fun or for profit – is not something that comes naturally to everyone.  It’s another reason why public speaking can be so difficult, as well.  People naturally like to wander in their conversations, and becoming laser-focused on what you’re trying to say is a skillset that not everyone has.

Why take 20 minutes to tell a story when you can say the same thing in five minutes?  You can always expand on what you’re talking about, especially as part of a continued conversation.  But don’t give everything away on your own – your audience will become quickly bored.

So what should you do?
