"For a September report, an LA Weekly writer hung out with Benji Breitbart, 20, Doug Marsh, and several other "Disneyana enthusiasts," who spend hours nearly every single day at Disneyland; have almost total recall of the park's history and culture; rabidly collect memorabilia; and preach with intensity on which aspects of today's park Walt Disney would not have approved. DE's usually wear Disney-themed clothes; use the pronoun "we" as if the park were theirs; and are dismissive of the obsessives of "Star Trek." ("Trekkies are devoted to some stupid pop-culture fad," said Marsh, but "Disney fans believe in the magic.") Why, Breitbart was asked, was Disney such a central force in his life? "I tried to figure that out. I just ended up with no answers." [LA Weekly, 9-5-03] "
So my question is which one of you guys was mentioned in the artical?
And also are there really people like this?
my signature was more than three lines so it got edited by a moderator!
There are people like that, though I feel very strongly that the author of that article's mocking tone was unprofessional and probably served in painting an inaccurate picture of the people mentioned.
What do I Listen-To?
It was in this thread:
The link to the L.A. Times article is still active.
As Chernabog said, it is one sided and mocks those people.
But on the other hand it depicts obsessive behaviour in a very entertaining (but loooong) way. Take the time to read it.
I guess the people mentioned there are more likely to post in the many Disney-related forii out there.
