I'm so glad I don't have comcast now even though my cable provider has a pornish sounding name.

ILX should collect its resources and buy Disney. We could do Bambi RIGHT.

"Eisner reserved his best barb for Steve Jobs, the CEO of Pixar and also co-founder of Apple Computer Inc., whose Macintosh computers are a leading alternative to PCs running Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system.

"He created the computer, or at least Windows, or whatever he created, and did a good job," Eisner said to peals of laughter from analysts attending the company conference in Orlando, Florida."

What a fucking tool.

Eisner said to peals of laughter from

I prefer to think that they were laughing AT him.

He should hire Scott McClellan as his press dude. Hilarity!

I am a Disney fan. Walt, that is. He's got to be puking in his grave. I am not convinced that he had a bigger-is-better attitude. Right now, this is the (all too sad) story of the world.

Globochem will probably buy out Comcast in a few years.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Saturday, 14 February 2004 07:47 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

...and Globochem itself will subsequently be purchased by Tyrell Corporation, then Weyland-Yutani.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Saturday, 14 February 2004 07:49 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

...which will then be bought out by Wal-Mart.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Saturday, 14 February 2004 07:50 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

. . . which will then be bought by Real Madrid.

The good thing about Comcast buying out Disney is that it would be likely that Eisner would get the axe.

thirteen years pass...

Comcast, like Disney, believes Fox’s assets could help it bulk up in content production, get more exposure to growing international assets like Fox’s Star India, and allow it to increase its stake in online video service Hulu, which is co-owned by Comcast, Disney and Fox. Consolidation in the cable and media industries has pressured companies to explore big transactions.

i keep getting a poxy fule error when i try to post this tweet, but CNN says:

Comcast bid $65 billion for most of 21st Century Fox. It's a dramatic attempt to beat Disney, which has already reached a $52.4 billion deal for those assets https://cnn.it/2sVT7F6

i hope comcast and disney can work it out and still make money on both ends, we all love them and depend on them so much as companies, 21st Century Fox too, love to see them get bigger and bigger and work their way toward the one big company that we live within and through

I'm waiting for Disney to wind up owning Marvel and DC. I hope to not being the comic business then because it will end up being a disaster of epic proportions.

I think if you'd asked me at any point in my life since I became able to articulate an opinion what nonexistent movie I'd least like to see produced, I would have said 'a live-action remake of Dumbo directed by Tim Burton'.
