o.k., so I have been watching the disney channel again. and I saw most of some movie about a teenage girl named zenon who was famous for being an activist.
anyway, her aunt and uncle have adopted a girl named dasha who looks up to zenon and follows her around. even stowing away in her shuttlepod.
but, the part of the movie I am concerned with is about an entertainment complex on the moon that's just opening. several teens, including zenon, are involved in a competition that's intended to promote the place.
unbeknownst to them, the owner of "moonstock" is planning on building an entire settlement. he thinks this will allow him to claim the moon as his own since he's the first man on the moon that actually built himself a house and stayed.
zenon and the other competitors have all been having the same dream. this leads her to put on a spacesuit and travel to the site of neil armstrong's landing.
there she encounters the moon goddess selena. (there's also a popular singer named selena in the movie who's kind of being billed as the moon goddess.) I don't know what the goddess thinks about all of that.
selena tells zenon to take everyone and all their trash and go! selena doesn't want people living on her and is prepared to cause havoc to get rid of them. to prove her point, she's already been causing extreme weather and floating cows on earth.
of course, zenon manages to get everyone off the moon. plus, enough of their trash to satisfy selena who waves goodbye after she destroys the left-behind buildings.
so everyone returns to earth for a concert by the singer selena. and they seem pretty happy. I guess someone must have made it a rule to stay off the moon and dasha is given a puppy by her parents.
if I was one of the many "synch bloggers" on the internets I would be losing my mind right now because JUST TODAY I was reading claims that both neil armstrong and buzz aldrin have said we shouldn't go back to the moon; we should focus on mars. in fact, aldrin said the moon was "hostile to all life."
there is, among the many various conspiracy theories, one that we were told to STAY OFF the moon by someone not of this earth. I don't know too much about the details, but I so hope neil and buzz got to meet selena. she can be a little strict, but she's much better than those grays.
and of course, this makes me think of sailor moon and the ruined moon kingdom which was run by queen serenity. I know technically that would seem to be a "queendom", but there you go.
also, I have a bunny and there IS a bunny on the moon! hehe that was for the synch blogger. lol
adding this: the costumes used in the low budget movie are just precious. especially the ones on the many extras milling about in the background. in the future people will wear a lot of cheap clear plastic raincoats. stock up now!
