Daily Trivia from H-Wood

June 17, 2009

This is a new, recurring post I have created. Welcome to its inaugural edition. This inaugural is much more important than Barack’s, so pay attention. Here, in these posts, I plan to divulge super-secret (ok, not so much) information from within the entertainment industry itself! Its like espionage! Only much more random, and done out of an unstoppable need I have to share completely useless knowledge with others. However, you never know what they are going to ask you on Jeopardy, so this may actually be knowledge that will win you millions of dollars (that is, if you become the next Ken Jennings on Jeopardy, which I doubt any of you can, because Ken was a god among men and also a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints).

Side note: IF any of this knowledge does win you millions of dollars on jeopardy or any other game/quiz/reality/trivia television program, I am entitled to at least half of your winnings.

And here we go…

Today at work, I have learned:

-From the years of 1980-1999, the least popular letter to begin the title of a film released by the Disney Company and its partners (Walt Disney Films, Hollywood Pictures, Buena Vista, Touchstone, Miramax, Dimension) is a tie between K and Q, with one film each. Even more interesting, K’s contribution is a film called Kids which, according to IMDB is about “An amoral, HIV-positive skateboarder [setting] out to deflower as many virgins as possible while a local girl who contracted his disease tries to save his next target from her same fate.” Damn. Heavy shit.

-On the flip side, C is the most popular letter to begin Disney film titles from this same time period. Its most notable admission: Clerks.

-Finally, in an interesting twist to the Disney-verse: I have learned that Disney-owned companies produced and distributed bot the films Trainspotting and Pulp Fiction. Does that seem strange to anyone else? I thought so.

um, Disney, really?

um, Disney, really?

Dance it out, Uma. Dance. It. Out.

Dance it out, Uma. Dance. It. Out.

Were you captivated?

I know you were.
