Widescreen: Four things I’m thankful for in entertainment this year

The singer-songwriter sisters who hit it big in 2007 with “Potential Breakup Song” have reinvented themselves as a dreampop band with catchier hooks (and much cheaper concert tickets) than Taylor Swift. I saw them earlier this year at House of Blues, and plan to see them again at the Riviera Theatre in April.

Disney said goodbye to their CEO after 999 days of disservice that ended with a brutal earnings report and a plunging stock price. Why do I care? Because Chapek also introduced the price-gouging, time-sucking “innovation” called Genie+ to the theme parks, which weren’t exactly affordable to begin with. (Just ask my credit card statement.) I don’t know if bringing Bob Iger back for another two years will solve Disney’s problems, but getting rid of Chapek — a bean-counter greeted by boos from fans in attendance at his company’s September convention — is certainly a good start.
