  2. QUESTION:
    What retro character would you want in Wreck it Ralph?
    Watch the trailer by googling Wreck It Ralph. It is a disney film about a bad guy turning good. It comes out November 2012. The trailer shows Bowser, Q#Bert, Clyde, and Dr Eggman. What character would you like to see in the film?

    • ANSWER:
      Donkey Kong, as he is an enemy in some of his first games.

  3. QUESTION:
    Does the story about the world ending in 2012 seem stupid to you?
    It does to me. In fact it kind of has the same story line as a film called Disney's Hercules i watched as a child. In the film all nine planets aline and than the titans are unleashed reacking havock on the world. Kind of reminds me about 2012. What do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      It's entirely stupid. Non-existent 'alignments' which are supposed to wreak all kinds of havoc, passing mystery planets, pole shifts, photon belts, etc. I think the average five-year-old wouldn't be taken in by it.
      There's not one single prediction that has any basis in science except for the solstice on 21st December - a perfectly regular annual event.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is Disney.Pixar going to start releasing 2 films per year starting in 2013?
    A few years ago I heard online that Disney.Pixar is going to start releasing 2 films a yer starting in 2012. Obviously now we know that 2013 is the year with 2 films instead of 2012. I really hope they are serious about releasing 2 films per year because just 1 film is not enough for me.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not sure! Where did you hear that one?

  5. QUESTION:
    When was the last time The Lion King been shown on tv?
    I don't get it. The last I saw it was on ABC,and that was over ten years ago. Is Disney planning to show it next year since their movies usually premiere on television after releasing the special edition Bluray and DVD?

    • ANSWER:
      Disney re-release there DVD'S every ten years, this way they get a new cycle of 3-13 year olds every 10 years.

      They don't show there movies on TV because they have to make money, if they show their Movies on TV, then their DVD sales will be down.

      Disney is a Business.

      1994 - Lion King released in cinema's
      1994/1995 - Lion King first release on VHS
      2002 - The film was re-issued on January 1, 2002 for IMAX and large-format theaters,
      2003 - Second release - October 7, 2003, the film was re-released on VHS and DVD
      2011 - shown in cinema's again
      2011/2012 - Third Release - released on DVD/Blu Ray/3D

      So you can be sure, their will be a Directors cut, or an extended edition released on Blu Ray in about 2020.

      Disney Films are hardly ever on TV, except the really old films.

  6. QUESTION:
    When is the next planned DVD release of Disney's Cinderella?
    I've heard that Disney re-releases their movies every 7 years or so. I want Cinderella, but if there is a new version with new special features, new music videos, and new material, I would like to wait for that one. Does anyone know when the next planned release of Cinderella is?

    • ANSWER:
      The last release of Cinderella was in 2005, and then it went back into the Disney Vault. Movies are re-released every 7-10 years so one could estimate that Cinderella will be back on the market in 2012 at the earliest.

      The 2005 release included a lot of new features, and a 2nd special edition disc. That disc includes unreleased songs like ""Cinderella's Work Song" and "Dancing on a Cloud." There is also a 15 minute segment about the main artist on the film, Mary Blair. There are also radio promo's, theatrical trailers, and tributes to many others who worked on the film.

      I can't imagine a future release offering more than this one. I would think you are safe to order this current version. Try Amazon, there are a lot of users selling new copies.

  7. QUESTION:
    Do recent Disney movies still have subliminal messages in them?
    When I say recent, I mean like 2005-2012. Do the shows and movies still have "subliminal messages" hidden in them? If so, can someone please tell me what shows and movies? Doing a project on this.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm a big Disney fan, and I haven't seen any thing in their recent films that would pass for subliminal messages. They seem to have cleaned up their act.

  8. QUESTION:
    Why are movies taken off of Netflix sometimes?
    I recently watched the 2009 movie 2012 on Netflix (about 2 weeks ago). Personally, despite reviews, I think it was a good movie, but that's beside the point. Today I was on Netflix and noticed that it wasn't available to watch instantly as it was two weeks ago! This has happened with other movies too. Why is this?

    • ANSWER:
      contact expiration

      the programs on watch instant have to be licensed by their distributor. when the contact expires, the program gets taken off. They can only stream a title for as long as the contact is.

      Netflix is a rental and streaming company, Not Columbia Pictures. Disney, Viacom, Paramount pictures, 20th century fox and all these other film and tv companies

      The simpsons, that 70s show, edward Scissorhands - these are all owned by 20th century fox.

      If Netflix were to stream any of these, they need a license from Fox. and when and if they get a license, they can only stream for the length of the license

      the same would apply to any film by any company - Netflix doesn't own the films they stream and rent out so they can only stream it for how long the license is

  9. QUESTION:
    Do you think End of the world type movies play into the psyche of the viewers to an extend?
    Movies like the Day The Earth Stood Still, 2012, and others with that feel of no hope for humanity? What message do you think it sends to viewers?

    • ANSWER:
      Apocalypse themed movies have been popular ever since realizing we had the power to destroy ourselves. Film-makers are simply reflecting our very real fears, using the film medium to convey an important message. Movies however, are still just make-believe. What's more frightening is the stuff we see on the news.
      There is one optimistic apocalypse themed movie I can think of; Disney/Pixars 'Wall-E'. If you need cheering up, then definitely make a point of watching that.

  10. QUESTION:
    Is it weird for me to be still watching Bambi?
    I am 19 years old and I love Bambi, although I have seen this film for the first time in November 2012, I can only think of Bambi when I am playing games. Is this weird?

    • ANSWER:
      No it's not weird at all. Disney films are for people of all ages. Get the dvd then you can watch it whenever you want.

  11. QUESTION:
    Are there any Disney auditions in Pittsburgh?
    I love acting and singing. Its my #1 dream to be on TV. Especially on Disney. I have some expirience with the camera. Im not nervous to sing or act in front of anyone. I taking classes next year. I need to know if there are any Auditions in Pittsburgh only for Disney. Thanks a bunch!

    • ANSWER:
      There aren't any Disney auditions in Pittsburgh right now but if you want to be on Disney they hold open calls twice a year. The first one for 2012 was in Kansas City, MO. The second hasn't been announced yet.
      http://tv.disney.go.com/disneychannel/opencall/

      But the Nick show Supah Ninjas was moved to a studio in Pittsburgh and is now being filmed there. They are currently casting Actors and background extras to film from July - September.
      I just found out about it today and submitted.

      You can go here http://www.mossercasting.com/
      Go to talent login and create an account and then after it gets approved submit your headshot and resume to the casting for Supah Ninjas.

      Now I know this show isn't the best but at least you'd be on TV, on a hit kids station and it'll help build your resume to get on better shows, maybe even one where your the lead and or movies!

  12. QUESTION:
    Will Disney's purchase of Marvel have any effect on the Marvel Super Heroes area at Islands of Adventure?
    Obviously Disney will own the copyright and trademark, but will they allow Universal to carry on using the brand, or is this going to mean that that area of Universal will soon become something else (or the rides re-branded??!). Interested in your thoughts!

    • ANSWER:
      I heard about this today, and all I thought was how clever a move it was for Disney, in one fell swoop, to acquire such a lucrative franchise with characters that are featured both in movies made by several of its competitors in the film industry and in one of the staple attractions at Universal Islands of Adventure in Orlando, one of Disney World's best competitors. With the rug being pulled out from under the feet of Disney's competition on an number of fronts like this, I believe it was ,000,000,000 well spent.

      I agree with the other answerers that Marvel characters aren't a good fit for the existing theme parks at Disney World. So, who's to say that they won't just go ahead and make a fifth theme park featuring only rides and attractions based on all the Marvel characters and call it something like Disney's Marvel Super Park? To differentiate it from the other four parks and to tap the late teens to late twenties market, which is only slightly catered to at the other parks, they could use it as a vehicle for large, high-end thrill rides and roller coasters that will compete directly with those at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens.

      Coincidentally, there is already a project just like this that is currently being built in a large theme park and entertainment complex outside of Dubai, UAE called Dubailand, which will supposedly open by the end of 2012.

  13. QUESTION:
    When is season 2 of My Babysitters a vampire airing?
    I love this show! I heard they started working on it in September and finished sometimes in November. I also heard on Atticus Mitchell's page on Facebook that it would be airing in April 2012! I just wanted to make sure and also if it would be ,or if it has been,aired in Canada first. Thanks :3

    • ANSWER:
      An exact date has not been release yet but the second season will consist of 13 episodes and stated to premiere Spring 2012 on Teletoon. Season 2 began filming on September 21, 2011 and finished on November 15, 2011. Disney Channel announced they would air second season episodes in 2012.

  14. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know anything about the new disney movie called Brave?
    I've seen previews in theatres but I want to know more.

    • ANSWER:
      Brave is a 2012 film. It's an upcoming American 3D computer-animated fantasy adventure film. In the film, the skilled archer Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) defies an age-old custom, unleashing chaos in the kingdom. After consulting a wise old woman (voiced by Julie Walters) for help, she becomes cursed and is forced to undo the spell before it is too late.

      The movie is being produced by Pixar Animation Studios, making this their thirteenth feature film, and will be released by Walt Disney Pictures. It was written by Brenda Chapman and Irene Mecchi, and it is being directed by Mark Andrews, who took over from Chapman. The film is scheduled for release on June 22, 2012 in the United States.

      The synopsis of the film reads: "Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late."

  16. QUESTION:
    Do you think modern cartoons are better than 90s cartoons?
    By modern, I mean like 2005-2012. And there's a troll on YouTube that seems to think that modern cartoons have better animation, great story telling and better jokes. I just don't see what he's seeing. Do you think today's cartoons are better? If so, why?

    • ANSWER:
      I grew up in the 90s, so of course I'd like to look back on the shows I watched as a kid with those nostalgia-tinted glasses....but I won't.

      Now, as an adult (which I'm going to assume you are if you grew up in the 90s) or as an older teenager (since they like to get in on the "omg 90's" trend also), you are perfectly capable of seeing cartoons in an objective light.
      Cartoons give off a completely different mood when being watched as a kid than as an adult. Really? You think 90s cartoons were amazing?
      You know what I remember about 90s cartoons? The majority of them focused around an "inner city" theme where there were cool "street-wise" city kids wearing tacky clothes and backwards caps while listening to cassettes. Guess what? Cartoons these days do the EXACT SAME THING, only modernized. Now it's suburban kids wearing modern fashions and listening to ipods and making jokes about the internet. Go figure.

      Going back to watch cartoons from twenty years ago now, as an adult...they're so PAINFULLY cheesy. Most themes the 90s cartoons focused around wouldn't even be relevant today.
      Yeah, most of the cartoons today suck, too. You know why? Most cartoons are made to please children, not adults. And yes, as hard as it is to believe, your sense of humor does change over the years.
      I divide cartoons into four main focused age groups.
      -Toddlers and small children (this can range from Baby Einstein up to Dora the Explorer)
      -10 and under (My Little Pony)
      -Preteens and teenagers (Regular show, Adventure Time)
      -Older teenagers and adults (Family Guy, South Park)
      (Many Disney/Pixar films try to grab all of the above)

      Am I saying you should stick to cartoons aimed at your age range? No (though you'd be more likely to find shows you'd enjoy). But you have to realize that the same things that were relevant in the 90s are different now. It's different for every decade and the people who grew up with those "good ole" 70s and 80s cartoons probably think the cartoons in the 90s sucked.

      So do I think today's cartoons are better than 90s cartoons? No. But they aren't any worse either. They're just different. And it will be different in the next decade, too.

      But I know "vintage" and "retro" is the cool thing to do these days. So it all makes sense in the end.

  17. QUESTION:
    How did Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez get their parts on the tv shows?
    How did Ariana and Selena get their part on Victorious and Wizards Of Waverly Place! I'm a big fan of Ariana but i dont know how she got the part, i know she was in broadway musicals before....
    •Did that help?
    And
    •were they open auditions?
    •did they have agents/managers?

    • ANSWER:
      Selena Gomez's story to fame: { In 2004, Gomez was discovered by the Disney Channel in a USA-wide scouting. Gomez appeared as a guest star on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and had a guest appearance – that later turned into a another role – on Hannah Montana from seasons two to three. Gomez previously taped two different pilots that were spin-offs to two previous Disney series. The first one, "What's Stevie Thinking?", was the spin-off to Lizzie McGuire. Gomez played Stevie Sanchez, Miranda Sanchez's little sister. The other show was titled "Arwin!", the spin-off to The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, in which she played Alexa. Neither series was picked up.
      In early 2007, Gomez was cast in the Disney Channel series "Wizards of Waverly Place" as one of the three main characters, Alex Russo. The show premiered to an audience of 5.9 million, becoming a hit. Many news outlets began dubbing Gomez the next 'Miley Cyrus' causing some controversy and a reported 'feud'. Gomez clarified that there was no feud and that she was flattered by the comparison, saying: "It's a little overwhelming, but I think really, it's a compliment. She's obviously extremely successful, and I think she's a wonderful performer ... So being compared to her, I was very, very flattered." Gomez recorded four songs, one of which was a cover, for the Wizards of Waverly Place soundtrack, only one single ("Magic") from the album was released. In 2008, Gomez recorded a cover of "Cruella de Vil"—which included a music video—for the compilation album DisneyMania 6. Gomez also recorded "Fly to Your Heart" for the 2008 animated film Tinker Bell. In July 2008, before Gomez' sixteenth birthday, she signed a recording deal with Hollywood Records, a music label owned by Disney. In May, of the same year, Gomez was featured, with Forever the Sickest Kids, on a duet version of the non-album song "Whoa Oh!". The same year Gomez appeared in Another Cinderella Story, the direct-to-DVD sequel to the 2004 Hilary Duff film, opposite Drew Seeley. She also had a minor voiceover role as one the Mayor's ninety-six daughters in Horton Hears a Who! which released in March of that year. In April, Lacey Rose, of Forbes ranked Gomez as being fifth on their "Eight Hot Kid Stars To Watch" list; and Rose described Gomez as having been "a multi-talented teen". }

      Ariana Grande's story to fame: { In her early years, she has been a soloist with various symphonies including South Florida’s Philharmonic, Pops and Symphonia Orchestras, and has had repeated appearances singing at NYC’s own Birdland. Ariana performed the National Anthem for the first live Fox Sports broadcast of the Anthem for the Florida Panther’s hockey league at age eight, her first National TV performance.
      In 2010, she created the original role of Miriam in the reading of the new musical, Cuba Libre, written and produced by Desmond Child.
      Grande played the character Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon television show Victorious, which premiered in March 2010. Grande was also featured in Dream Magazine as the cover girl for the August 2011 issue. In 2011, Ariana voiced an animated fairy, Princess Diaspro, on the Nickelodeon series, Winx Club. Grande also made appearances as a panelist on Figure It Out. Grande starred as Snow White along with Charlene Tilton and Neil Patrick Harris in the Pasadena Playhouse's production of A Snow White Christmas from December 13–23, 2012. In 2012, Grande sang a duet with MIKA on the single version of his track Popular Song. }

  19. QUESTION:
    where are they gonna hold the 2012 disney channel auditions ?
    I've been looking everywhere.....Can someone help me ?

    • ANSWER:
      Disney Channel auditions for what? They hold auditions all the time but they usually go through agencies. If they do have an open call it would be blasted all over the internet and very easy to find. The auditions are usually held where the filming location is, and most disney shows are shot in LA.

  21. QUESTION:
    I signed up for a disney channel audition thing?
    I called 888 999 5679 and they took my info down and it is tomarrow what should I expect? Is it really worth it?

    • ANSWER:
      That is NOT a real Disney audition. It is a company using Disney's name to lure you in but they have nothing to do with Disney. Read Disney's warning about this on their own website
      http://tv.disney.go.com/disneychannel/opencall/
      "You can come here, to www.disneychannel.com/opencall, to get info on the only official Disney Channel open casting calls which we hold annually in various cities around the world. These open casting calls are promoted as official Disney Channel casting calls. Importantly, there is no fee for these casting calls or to audition and no contract to sign. The next open casting calls will be held in 2012. If a casting call is not listed here, it is not authorized by Disney Channel. "

      The casting call is NOT listed on Disney's site so it is an unauthorized audition

      If you heard this on the radio, everyone who "auditions" get a call a day or two later claiming they were "one of only 20" who made it. Then you will be asked to pay up to 00 for some acting school or showcase that is not at all associated with Disney

      I don't know what company you are dealing with but there are many different companies who use Disney's name to lure people into spending money. There are literally thousands of reports about these type of companies online -- on news channels, newspaper sites, consumer reports sites, etc.

      If this were a real Disney audition, you would have been given the name and description of the film or television show they were casting, the name and address of the casting director, and descriptions of the specific roles they were casting
      THIS is an example of what a real auditon looks like http://www.featurefilmauditions.com/2012/04/national-talent-search-for-boy-and-girl.html
      If you don't have this sort of information and know exactly which part and which production you are auditioning for, who the director is, who the casting director is, etc, then it's not a real audition

      How could you possibly prepare for an audition, know what to wear, know what sort of monologue to prepare, etc if you had no idea what role you were auditioning for? Obviously you would dress differently and have a different monologue if you were auditioning for the role of a soccer player, or a farmer in the 1890s or a punk.

  22. QUESTION:
    Why don't they make disney movies like they used to? Nothing compares to the classics anymore?
    Thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      In recent years Disney moved away from their original hand drawn animation techniques to focus more on live action and CGI films.

      Disney originally announced that Home on the Range would be the last traditionally animated film, and from Chicken Little onwards, all future Disney films would be computer-animated. In July 2006, The Princess and the Frog was revealed to be in development using their tradition animation style and they'll be releasing it in December of this year.

      They'll be releasing Rapunzel in 2010 and King of the Elves in 2012, both using the tradition animation style.

      So hopefully we'll be seeing something more closely resembling the classic Disney of our youth!

  23. QUESTION:
    What are the odds that univision will have programs in english, without spanish subtitles?
    http://www.fronterasdesk.org/news/2012/dec/28/univision-tries-english-language-programming/

    Would this be their only english shows if it is a sucess? Will Puerto Rico become english dominant if univision switches to english only programs most of the time? What is the percentage likelyhood that univision will make mostly bilingual/english only shows?

    • ANSWER:
      Would this be their only english shows if it is a sucess?
      * If the experiment is a success then you can expect more shows being introduced later. It is like making a Batman or Hobbit movie. If it is a sucess you can be sure a sequel will be filmed, if the first movie sucks, then you can say bye bye to the part II.

      Will Puerto Rico become english dominant if Univision switches to english only programs most of the time?
      * No.
      * If Univision PR (local Channel 11) switches to 100% english programming it will move from their top position in local TV ratings/audience to the bottom one. Their current clients will move to WAPA TV (local channel 4) and/or Telemundo (local channel 2). Dominant language in PR will remain the same - Spanish, and english will remain the second one.
      * Also, english speakers in PR will likely prefer other channels via cable TV than Univision PR with 100% english programming. English speakers in PR will turn on Disney, HBO, Showtime, CNN, Nickolodean, USA Network, AMC, NBC, ABC, Fox, and others instead of Univision PR.
      * So, a Univision PR with 100% english programing simply is not going to happen.

      What is the percentage likelyhood that univision will make mostly bilingual/english only shows?
      * Too early to say that, not enough information to answer. consider this:
      A. What is the main public of Univision at USA? Hispanic / latinos, spanish speaking and billingual (spanish/english) hispanics.
      B. What is the audience targeted by the experiment? Hispanic/latino origin residents of USA who understand better english than spanish or do not speak spanish at all.

      I do not think Univision will cut ties with their main audience by switching to a mostly billingual/english only programming.

  24. QUESTION:
    How do i become a teenage model?
    I'm 14 years old, I have had some modeling experience and I was wondering how I can become a teenage model. I first got the idea from people that would ask me or tell me "Are you a model or you should be a model." Can someone please help me with this it would mean the world to me. Thankyou :)

    • ANSWER:
      I get those remarks, too!

      Since I've had some Charm & Poise schooling and have modeled a few times for hair and extras in movies. Those training I've had, are something I'll never forget, like riding a bike. I carry myself like I did then, and people thought I just practice in front of a mirror everyday.

      Remember, if you can't be a model, you can 'look like one, walk like one, and dress like one.'

      In Vogue UK, now hires 13-14 year old models. But there's a documentary "Girl Model" too young, too thin on Vogue models, shown at SXSW and the Toronto International Film festival, highlights the search and scouting of young girls in the modeling industry. Teen models have no clue what they're getting themselves into. They're naive. They get free food, free alcohol, they are forced into prostitution, too many abuses, sexual, physical, emotional you just can't believe.

      The best way to deal with modeling agencies is by contacting your area that is local and have a good record through the Better Business Bureau, not online. I went to a poise & charm school, back in the 70's, and wasted my money because they didn't promise they'll give me a job, but I learned something from it. I learned how to be poise, presentable, and walk like a model, and that is not something you won't ever forget, to look like a model. They are now one of the biggest talent agencies in my town for children.

      There are many predators out there, that attract many people of all sexes, ages, and demographic.

      Sending out photos of wannabes, is like sending your profiles to people in jail, you don't know them, AND YOU just can't trust everyone, this is the world wide web, that can attract the whole world: your address and everything about YOU.

      Craigslist is a good reputable website, but they get a bad rap because of what ONE PERSON did or done. Same scenario.

      Here's one that was posted on Craigslist . . . about modeling career, I thought about you. Please read:

      Sleezy modeling agents pay scouts very well to bring them girls who will wind up in one or two scenarios.; 1) pay 0 for a photo shoot with a photographer from LA. Just in time to meet big shots from Nike,Adidas,MGM,Nordstrom, & Disney (this bunch will not be there); or 2) come to a meeting at a hotel and get to pay over 00 for the same crap. WORSE YET if the one from Vegas (ACT) comes again selling a modeling course for 00 including a 'meet the famous' function where you get trained in Washington once a month - don't do it people. Also most EXPO events are just recruiting events for schools. Wakey, wakey kiddos. btw SCHOOLS are only bad if they lie to you or imply guaranteed placement. Scouts may be legitimate if you don't have to pay big bucks for anything. Watch out for the scammers on the radio telling young girls about big opportunities - they may be one of the big modeling schools that recently closed mid classes and now wants another chance at your money. They recruit a bunch of wannabees then tell each one 'you are the only one we want' - then it gets worse if you are dumb.

  25. QUESTION:
    what ever happened to vanessa and zac?
    I haven't heard anything about Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens in a long time. I heard they broke up in late 2010 that they broke up. what happened? where are they now in 2012?

    • ANSWER:
      Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens started dating when they filmed their first movie together, "High School Musical". While Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron were dating they moved in together. When they moved in together Vanessa Hudgens mom, Gina pressured Zac to propose to Vanessa since they were living together. Zac Efron didn't want to get married just yet so then they broke up. I'm sure that they are still friends but Vanessa Hudgens moved on and dated Josh Hutcherson during their movie "Journey 2" and they broke up and later after that she started dating Disney star, Austin Butler who she still is now to this day. Zac Efron hasn't had a girlfriend ever since Vanessa Hudgens but he has been spotted seeing Lily Collins but nothing confirms that their dating.

    Has Disney considered producing a film based on Ally Carter's book series (Gallagher Girls) ?
    I Absolutely love her books! The are some of my favorites, and I've heard some rumors that Disney is considering producing a film based on the books. (Which is a Great idea!)
    ~Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      if you check it out on wikipedia it says that "It was optioned for film by Disney and recently been announced to be in production by Walden Media". so yup it will be a film but not by disney, and if you look at the imdb site, it doesn't say much other than it is planned to come out in 2012!

    • ANSWER:
      The Illuminati is a secret society that has been around since 1776, they want to create a one world government, a "New World Order," with themselves in charge. The Illuminati are generally powerful and rich people. The Illuminati will kill anyone, anywhere at any time to get what they need.

      The people that are "Anti-New World Order" and speak out against the Illuminati will be murdered like 2Pac and Michael Jackson. 2Pac and Michael Jackson were going to warn the entire world about what the Illuminati are planning. If you look at the title of 2Pac's album "The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory" for example; 2Pac was referring to the Illuminati in this title, Kill + Illuminati. In the song "They Don't Care About Us" by Michael Jackson, "they" is the Illuminati. The Illuminati killed 2Pac, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Marilyn Monroe, Jon Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, John F. Kennedy, Abe Lincoln, Princess Diana, Martin Luther King, the list goes on.

      The Illuminati control everything, the music industry, film industry, pharmaceutical (legal industry), medical industry, colleges, banking institutions, Wall Street and the Political System. Their symbol is even on our money.

      The Illuminati control our Presidential Elections. Usually the president, who gets the most sponsorship, in the form of money and media coverage, wins the election. The Illuminati control the media, so whoever the Illuminati choose as a presidential candidate will win the election. They will also sponsor the other candidate too, to have entertainment for the public. Sometimes this does not always go according to plan, for example, in the election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. In Florida George W. Bush "won" over Al Gore. The Illuminati cheated so that their pre-elected candidate would win presidency. The Illuminati choose the presidential candidate with the closest blood lines.

      These are the thirteen families in the Illuminati:
      1. Astor
      2. Bundy
      3. Collins
      4. DuPont
      5. Freeman
      6. Kennedy
      7. Li (Chinese)
      8. Onassis
      9. Rockefeller
      10. Rothschild
      11. Russell
      12. van Duyn
      13. Merovingian (European Royal Families)
      These families have "ties" with the Illuminati:
      1. Reynolds
      2. Disney
      3. Krupp
      4. McDonald

      Most of the major wars and economic depressions/recessions of the past 100 years were carefully planned out by the Illuminati. Some of these include: The Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, The Great Depression, the Rise of Nazi Germany, Korean War, Vietnam War, 1991 Gulf War and French Revolution.

      Do you remember all of the unnecessary hype about the New Millennium, or the alleged Y2K crisis? This hype was created by the Illuminati. This had people selling their homes, building shelters, stocking up on survival kits, etc. The Illuminati are also building hype for a 2012 phenomenon. I do not think that anything major is going to happen in 2012. When 2012 comes and goes, it will be shown to be the biggest hoax since the Y2K phenomenon.

      A "New World Order" could be bad because the Illuminati want to drastically reduce the world's population.

You can overcome and get through anything.

She's not a confrontational person at all. Both of them will never leave my life no matter what happens, because we've been through so much together.

  33. QUESTION:
    Is The Secret World of Arrietty in English?
    I've heard that it is a spectacular movie but I want to know whether there are English dubs for it, and if there are, are they any good? I'm perfectly fine with reading the subs, but I want to watch it with my family and I'm not too sure if they'd like to read off the screen.
    @Mamy

    Alright, there is a NA release. But are there English dubs? If there are, are they any good? Or am I better off watching the Japanese version?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      yes:

      Two English language versions of the film were produced, a British dub produced by Studio Canal which was released in the United Kingdom on July 29, 2011, and an American dub released by Walt Disney Pictures in North America on February 17, 2012.

      IMO, however, unless you're watching the movie with very small children who can't read subtitles, watching movies in their original language is way better.

      Great movie, pure Ghibli spirit...have fun!

  34. QUESTION:
    What equipment do I need to play blu-ray/hd dvd's on my PC?
    I already know that my PC is poweful enough, and it has pleanty of memory. All I need to know is what equipment is needed for the PC.
    IE Graphics card, screen, etc...

    • ANSWER:
      If you're saying your computer is powerful enough using the Cyberlink Advisor, ignore it, Blu-ray Discs, especially and HD DVD's can't be played using Pentium 4's and using low graphics cards, there are a lot of issues rather than just buying a screen, and attempting to play Blu-ray using single core CPU.

      Firstly, even though you think it is powerful enough, check again, you will need one of these CPU's to play Blu-ray discs with the reccomended graphics cards that I'll specify below (NOTE I AM STATING THIS BY EXPERIENCE, AS I HAVE A BLU DRIVE, AND I ENCOUNTED A LOT OF PROBLEMS

      Intel(R) Pentium(R) D 945 3.4GHz or higher
      NO EXCEPTIONS
      Intel(R) Pentium(R) Extreme Edition at 3.4GHz or higher 9XX series.
      Intel(R) Core 2 Duo e6300 at 1.8GHz or higher
      AMD Athlon X2 4400+ or higher
      Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual Core at 2GHz or higher
      Intel(R) Core(R) Duo at 2.16GHz or higher

      These CPU's can play Blu-ray Discs slutter free using any of these graphics cards:
      ATi Radeon HD 2400 XT (Pro edition can play at 720P, XT reccomended)
      ATi Radeon HD 2600
      Nvidia 8500 series or Nvidia 8600 series
      ATi Radeon HD 3400 and 3600 seriies
      Also possible with these GPU's with high CPU % and minimal frame dropping:
      ATi Radeon HD 2900
      Nvidia 8800 series
      Nvidia 7950 X2
      (Possible with the above CPU's but high CPU percentages will be present unlike above cards)

      If you use one of these CPU's you can use any of these the below specified graphics cards to play Blu-ray Discs, although high CPU usages will be present (in the 80- 99%).
      Intel(R) Core 2 Duo at 2.4GHz (frame dropping might occur at some points in H.264 films lke X MEN 3)
      Intel(R) Core 2 Duo at 2.66GHz (reccommended)
      AMD Athlon X2 5800+

      With these CPU's you can use any of the graphics cards mentioned below:
      ATi Radeon X1600 series (Not Reccommended, 720P limitation, frames may drop at higher resolutions)
      ATi Radeon x1800
      ATi Radeon X1950
      Nvidia 7600 or higher supporting PureVideo Technology

      If you plan on using no graphics accelerator, (aka sticking with intregated graphics) one of these will be required:
      Intel(R) Core 2 Duo at 3GHz or higher (high CPU percentages will be present sometimes reaching the high 90's)
      Intel(R) Core 2 Quad
      Intel(R) Core 2 Extreme
      AMD Athlon X2 6000+

      Now, check, does you system meet does requirements.
      Now for you monitor, generally a monitor with a resolution above 1280 x 1024 will be sufficiant for a 720P resolution. Since computer screens are small, there is no need to buy an expensive 1080P monitor, as the difference will be barely noticiable.

      Now, the sticky DRM issues. Your monitor must be HDCP COMPLIANT (not compatible), and your graphics card must also be HDCP COMPLIANT to watch it over a digital (DVI) connection.Some graphics cards may be compatible with HDCP, but it is up to the manufacturer to put the expensive CRYPTO ROM into the graphics card. If one of it's not you'll have to watch it over it over an analogue VGA or Component connection. These connections will be fine until 2010, or 2012 at the latest, as there is a reported agreement to hold of the Image Constraint Token of Blu ray and HD DVD discs until the following dates. It is illegal in Japan until 2011, so it's not a huge issue, as this is a long time for hardware. Anyway Fox, Sony Pictures, Disney, Paramount, and Universal have announched they have no plans to use it. No discs have been made using it, except a few German discs, where it was revieled it was accidently turned on.

      So that's it, for memory actually 512MB is enough, it's not a huge worry. Now check wheither you computer is actually does meet these requirements - these aren't from the top of my head, I did a lot of research, and I read from Annadteck, that not even a Core 2 at 2.4GHz could decode a H.264 a high bitrade movie with out hitting 100% most of the time (the movie was X MEN 3). Also on my setup, on my Pentium D at 3.6Ghz couldn't play a high bitrate H.264 movie without a bit of sluttering at a few places. When I upgraded to a HD 2400XT it played at the 20% mark!!!! Don't even bother with the Pentium 4's , even with the ATi HD 2400/2600 which have a dedicated decoder for VC1 and H.264 they won't handle the high bit rate MPEG 2 movies. Celeron's are just OUT OF THE QUESTION!!!!

      Do your research, before buying a Blu-ray drive, hope this helps, and good luck.

Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Martin Luther King, the list goes on.

      The Illuminati control everything, the music industry, film industry, pharmaceutical (legal industry), medical industry, colleges, banking institutions, Wall Street and the Political System. Their symbol is even on our money.

      The Illuminati control our Presidential Elections. Usually the president, who gets the most sponsorship, in the form of money and media coverage, wins the election. The Illuminati control the media, so whoever the Illuminati choose as a presidential candidate will win the election. They will also sponsor the other candidate too, to have entertainment for the public. Sometimes this does not always go according to plan, for example, in the election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. In Florida George W. Bush "won" over Al Gore. The Illuminati cheated so that their pre-elected candidate would win presidency. The Illuminati choose the presidential candidate with the closest blood lines to the Illuminati.

      These are the thirteen families in the Illuminati:
      1. Astor
      2. Bundy
      3. Collins
      4. DuPont
      5. Freeman
      6. Kennedy
      7. Li (Chinese)
      8. Onassis
      9. Rockefeller
      10. Rothschild
      11. Russell
      12. van Duyn
      13. Merovingian (European Royal Families)
      These families have "ties" with the Illuminati:
      1. Reynolds
      2. Disney
      3. Krupp
      4. McDonald

      Most of the major wars and economic depressions/recessions of the past 100 years were carefully planned out by the Illuminati. Some of these include: The Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, The Great Depression, the Rise of Nazi Germany, Korean War, Vietnam War, 1991 Gulf War, French Revolution, and wars in in Afghanistan and Iraq.

      Do you remember all of the unnecessary hype about the New Millennium, or the alleged Y2K crisis? This hype was created by the Illuminati. This had people selling their homes, building shelters, stocking up on survival kits, etc. The Illuminati are also building hype for a 2012 phenomenon. I do not think that anything major is going to happen in 2012. When 2012 comes and goes, it will be shown to be the biggest hoax since the Y2K phenomenon. The Illuminati are only using the year 2012 to distract us from the actual year of the "New World Order."

  37. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know what that big castle like building is going to be at Disney California Adventure Park?
    It looks like a castle or a mission/church?

    • ANSWER:
      I believe you're referring to the Carthay Circle Theatre at the end of Buena Vista Street. It's a model of the actual Carthay Circle Theatre (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carthay_Circle_Theatre), where Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs premiered back in 1937. The entire theme of Disney California Adventure's new entrance, Buena Vista Street, is the Hollywood's Golden Age, and Walt's adventure as he traveled from Kansas to Hollywood to pursue a career in film. The Carthay Circle Theatre, an important movie palace from Hollywood's Golden Age and the site where the first full-length Disney feature premiered, is really a perfect addition to help tell the story of the new entrance.

      Inside the theatre, there will be the Carthay Circle Restaurant, open to all guests. Here's a Disney Parks blog post about the restaurant: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/05/inside-carthay-circle-restaurant-at-disney-california-adventure-park/

      This will also be an exclusive club, 1901 (named for Walt's birth year), at the theatre, similar to Disneyland's famous and mysterious Club 33. Here's an article on that exclusive club: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/05/a-look-inside-the-exclusive-1901-in-carthay-circle-theatre-at-disney-california-adventure-park/

  38. QUESTION:
    Why is Wolverine not in The Avengers 2012?
    Wasn't Wolverine part of The Avengers? I know there are different versions of The Avengers over the years in comics and animation, but it would seem logical that after X-men Origins: Wolverine, Hugh Jackman would be included in this cast as well. Any reason why he is not?

    • ANSWER:
      Even if Marvel/Disney wanted to add Wolverine and Spider-man to the movie, they can't because Fox owns the film rights to Wolverine and Sony owns Spider-man. That's one reason, and the other reason is that they probably wanted to stay true to the comics anyway, since Wolverine and Spider-man didn't join till later.

  39. QUESTION:
    What do you think's gonna happen in Avengers II?
    Will Spidey and Wolvy join? Will one of the Avengers die? Will one of the avengers become a villain? Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      IDK, you tell me Rob Downey jr. Your gonna be in it. I assume that you have at least read the script by now. I hope they eat some more sandwiches. LOL XD

      Spidey can't join. I think universal has rights to Spiderman and The Fantastic 4.... if not them someone else does. And Disney has the rights to the Avengers and other films.... Basically, that is why he wasn't in this film either. These two companies refuse to work together, so we won't be seeing spiderman in them. As for Wolverine, ...? They might have that same problem, but I couldn't see him joining up even if there wasn't that problem. Maybe they will include Ant-Man in the next film. I could also see no additions to the team too. The plot is already out of control with 4 main super heroes and other main characters. Adding another character would make the film even harder to put together.

      I doubt that one of the main Avengers would die die. It could happen... but the character most easily killed would be Ironman, seeing how popular he is I doubt that he would be killed off.

      I don't think anyone on the team will willingly become a villain.

      Again, this is all speculation. All we know about the next movie was played during the teaser in the credits. We won't know anything concrete until the next movie comes out.

      Averngers News:
      "In October 2011, producer Kevin Feige said during the New York Comic Con, "Iron Man 3 will be the first of what we sort of refer to as phase two of this saga that will culminate, God willing, in Avengers 2 ".[174] In March 2012, Joss Whedon stated that he would want a sequel to be "...smaller. More personal. More painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself."[175] At the premiere of The Avengers, Kevin Feige said they have an option for Whedon to direct The Avengers 2 when and if the time comes."

You can use the wording 'Be Our Guest!' or 'Tale upon a Time' for your invitations and other paper crafts. Use a weathered book instead of a ring pillow. Wear a slightly gold-toned dress instead of stark white and dress your man in khaki and blue. Decorate your guest book table with a mantle clock. Serve your meals out of porcelain serving dishes. Have a tea trolley. Use furniture in your decorating (put your guest book on an old dresser instead of a table).

    What is the movie about a son the grows out of the ground?
    I saw a preview in the movies about a year ago about a man and woman who were unable to have children but they made a list of all of the characteristics of the "perfect son" ie. brave, smart, friendly etc. That night a storm came and in their back yard their son grew out of the ground and he was like 5 or 6 and they became his parents.

      Jennifer Garner & Joel Edgerton grow a magic child In the trailer for 'The Odd Life Of Timothy Green' (2012)
      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/09/the-odd-life-of-timothy-green-trailer_n_922805.html
      Review:
      It's a heartbreaking reality that some loving couples cannot conceive a child, no matter how much medical assistance they receive. In the altered reality of Disney films, however, there's an option when science proves incapable: a wish box and some magic.

      In "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton star as the couple who, when told by their doctor that a baby of their own blood was not possible, go the supernatural route. A few drinks into that sad night, they put together a wish list of qualities for the child they could not have, put them in a box and bury it. A storm and unexplained phenomena later, a child just, poof, appears like that.

      Here's the catch: the child is about seven years old, with absolutely no memory.

    • ANSWER:
      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1564777/

      It's still in pre-production, so it hasn't even started filming yet. According to this, it won't be out until next year (2012).

  46. QUESTION:
    Will there ever be an Artemis Fowl movie?
    The books are really good and I've done some research and it says that the movie was written but I'm not sure.

    • ANSWER:
      AF author Eoin Colfer said in August that there is a script and a director (the writing/directing team is Jim Sheridan and his daughter, who made the movie "In America"). There's no cast, no studio financing, and no production start date, but the interview suggests that shooting may begin sometime next year, which would likely mean a 2012 release date.

      http://www.artemis-fowl.com/author_inter…

      Artemis Fowl Movie
      What will be in the movie?

      The movie’s plot will combine the storylines of both of the first two books, Artemis Fowl, and Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident. Colfer has been deeply involved in this, and has created a whole new ending, though he promises that the movie will remain quite faithful to the books.
      Why has it taken so long?

      Filming on the movie was due to begin a few years ago, but a dispute arose between Miramax, and Disney, when Bob and Harvey Weinstein left the company to start “The Weinstein Company.” This dispute delayed production for many years, but thankfully, has finally been resolved, with both Disney and The Weinstein Company now owning the rights. The movie is now progressing with the script finished, and casting rumored to begin sometime over the coming Summer.

      Some reports suggest that another reason for the production being delayed was that the value of the U.S. Dollar fell in comparison to the Euro.
      So what do we know for a fact about it?

      Well, we know a few things. Firstly, the rights to the first three books have been purchased. The first two have been used in this movie of course, but does this hint at a sequel being planned?

      Secondly, the movie, or at least part of it, is being shot in Ireland. This is likely as Colfer lives in Wexford, Ireland. This county has been used for parts of the filming of “Saving Private Ryan” and “Braveheart”, whilst Ireland as a whole was the filming location of the more recent, “Arthur.” Furthermore, the Irish Government places relatively low tax on such creative projects (In an effort to build the industry within the country).

      Unfortunately, “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” was also originally scheduled to be shot in Ireland, but moved on.
      Who is playing who?

      Casting is yet to begin, and so, no-one is set to play any of the parts yet. Originally, a boy (His name was never given) was chosen to play Artemis, but due to the huge delays, he grew too old for the part. Recently however, Aidan Mitchell has expressed an interest in the part, and Colfer has said that he would like to have a cameo role as a goblin.

      A few details on the non-acting staff have been released as well, and you can read about them on our casting page.
      When is it due out?

      Filming is yet to begin, so the movie is still a long way off. At a guess, you could hope for sometime in 2012-2013

  47. QUESTION:
    What's your favorite memory at Walt Disney World?
    As a pro when it comes to Walt Disney World, I have created many memories at Disney World. But my favorite memory is something i'll never forget. It was January 14, 2012! I had just gotten my new annual pass for this year and when I arrived at the Magic Kingdom, I had no Idea what I was in for. Little did I know but later that day at Space Mountain I was going to meet the love of my life and fall in love forever. But I want to know what your favorite and most memorable Disney World memories????

    • ANSWER:
      i have so many that i can't think of them all right now.

      i can recall the first time i went on space mountain. i said i wanted to sit next to my sister but since its only one to a seat she said she would sit behind me and if i flew out she would catch. how that made me feel comfortable going on i'll never know lol.

      i can also remember the first time i went on tower of terror. i was wearing my elementary school sweatshirt and i was in the front row to the right when you are on the elevator. i didn't feel safe with the lap bar so i held on to my dad with my left arm and the cage part of the elevator with my right hand.
      its now one of my all time favorite rides.

      also to do with tower of terror i recall when last year my 3yr4mos old niece would not let us leave her with my mom while we went on. she was tall enough and really wanted to go with us so we let her. she was perfectly fine during the entire thing. she didn't freak out or cry or scream. we have the ride pic and she just has this concerned look on her face like is this safe. she wanted to go on again but then when we got to the library she freaked and my sister took her out the chicken exit.

      one of the craziest disney vacations we ever had was when someone in school gave me lice right before we went so we were all doing the lice shampoo while in florida. then my dad broke his toe, then my one sister threw up near cinderella's castle, then my other sister threw up in line for its a small world and it went rolling down the ramp around people's feet. that day disney world was great to us cuz we were given the day back on our ticket and escorted out of the park. then we were all super sick for a couple of days and only left the hotel room while the maid cleaned it. we then lost a roll of film and went to magic kingdom's lost and found but then we did find the film in the car or something. then i got a weird thing on my foot and my dad had to prick it with a needle to get the puss out. in the process of sterilizing it with a match he burnt a hole in his shirt (don't ask i don't know how he did it lol).

      another memory is winning the scavenger hunt multiple times in adventureland and getting skip the line passes which we still have a few laying around as souvenirs.

      and i remember sitting up front on the monorail several times. its a good thing i've kept all of the little cards you get for doing that since i won't be able to ride in the front ever again.

      oh and i member that i used to LOVE imageworks with the rainbow tunnel, the pin table, and the green screen thing where you could be astronauts and other things.

      i also remember going into the world of motion lounge. there was a huge stuffed mickey and i sat on its lap. thats just h ow big it was!

      i have a very bad memory of body wars. my mom is a retired nurse and really thought it would be cool. she was wrong. it made her sick and it made me very sick as well. i can remember saying my stomach hurt and she said mine does too and i tucked my head down into her.

      and i remember hitching a ride in a horse drawn carriage with "celebrities" at hollywood studios (there's another memory i loved when it was called MGM studios and will always think of it that way.) we needed to get from beauty and the beast to muppet vision 3d and they offered to give us a ride. they told us to wave with them like royalty and people really did look at us like we were something special.

      there's so many more memories but i can't type any more lol.

    What is iron man's current relationship with these heroes?
    Spider-Man
    Wolverine
    Captain America
    Thor

    (Please give details)

    • ANSWER:
      The Movie calls ''The Avengers''' is an upcoming American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based upon the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which crosses over several Marvel superhero films including Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). The film is written and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo and Cobie Smulders. The Avengers tells the story of Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., who recruits Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America to save the world from destruction.
      Development of The Avengers began when Marvel Studios received a grant from Merrill Lynch in April 2005. After the success of the film Iron Man, Marvel announced that The Avengers would be released in July 2011. With the signing of Scarlett Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a 2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the screenplay that was originally written by Zak Penn. Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico before moving to Cleveland, Ohio in August and New York City in September.
      The Avengers is scheduled to be released on May 4, 2012 in the United States.

  50. QUESTION:
    How did Harry Reid turn "The Fiscal Cliff" turn into the "Mountain of Pork"?
    1) Help out NASCAR - Sec 312 extends the “seven year recovery period for motorsports entertainment complex property”, which is to say it allows anyone who builds a racetrack and associated facilities to get tax breaks on it. This one was projected to cost million over two years.

    2) A hundred million or so for Railroads - Sec. 306 provides tax credits to certain railroads for maintaining their tracks. It’s unclear why private businesses should be compensated for their costs of doing business. This is worth roughly $ 165 million a year.

    3) Disney’s Gotta Eat - Sec. 317 is “Extension of special expensing rules for certain film and television productions”. It’s a relatively straightforward subsidy to Hollywood studios, and according to the Joint Tax Committee, was projected to cost 0m for 2010 and 2011.

    4) Help a brother mining company out – Sec. 307 and Sec. 316 offer tax incentives for miners to buy safety equipment and train their employees on mine safety. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to bribe mining companies to not kill their workers.

    5) Subsidies for Goldman Sachs Headquarters – Sec. 328 extends “tax exempt financing for York Liberty Zone,” which was a program to provide post-9/11 recovery funds. Rather than going to small businesses affected, however, this was, according to Bloomberg, “little more than a subsidy for fancy Manhattan apartments and office towers for Goldman Sachs and Bank of America Corp.” Michael Bloomberg himself actually thought the program was excessive, so that’s saying something. According to David Cay Johnston’s The Fine Print, Goldman got .6 billion in tax free financing for its new massive headquarters through Liberty Bonds.
    6) B Off-shore financing loophole for banks – Sec. 322 is an “Extension of the Active Financing Exception to Subpart F.” Very few tax loopholes have a trade association, but this one does. This strangely worded provision basically allows American corporations such as banks and manufactures to engage in certain lending practices and not pay taxes on income earned from it. According to this Washington Post piece, supporters of the bill include GE, Caterpillar, and JP Morgan. Steve Elmendorf, super-lobbyist, has been paid ,000 in 2012 alone to lobby on the “Active Financing Working Group.”

    7) Tax credits for foreign subsidiaries – Sec. 323 is an extension of the “Look-through treatment of payments between related CFCs under foreign personal holding company income rules.” This gibberish sounding provision cost .5 billion from 2010 and 2011, and the US Chamber loves it. It’s a provision that allows US multinationals to not pay taxes on income earned by companies they own abroad.

    8) Bonus Depreciation, R&D Tax Credit – These are well-known corporate boondoggles. The research tax credit was projected to cost B for 2010 and 2011, and the depreciation provisions were projected to cost about 0B for those two years, with some of that made up in later years.
