Regarding the casting of the following photo by Annie Liebowitz for Disney:
I posted this and a bunch of other gorgeous Disney photos several weeks ago, but only this afternoon did I realize who had been cast as the merman in the foreground (after hearing it reported on a Disney news podcast). In light of his undeniably incredible performance in the most recent Olympics in Beijing, who wouldn't recognize Michael Phelps's name? At the time I posted these photos before, he was all but unknown by many (maybe even most?), but now he's a record-breaking world champion. Just thought I would point that out, mostly because I thought it was amusing what a difference a couple of weeks can make in cases such as these. I suppose the other swimmers are supposed to be well-known athletes as well, but I don't recognize them either.
So whaddaya know? I thought I had never really bothered to blog about the Olympics, and I blogged about them after all! Sort of. And for the record, I think it's very strange when fangirls go on and on about how "hot" Michael Phelps is. He's really cool and extremely talented, but actually quite a goofy-looking fellow. Someone gets a little spotlight, and they suddenly become attractive! Rather an amazing phenomenon actually.
