Ridazz Roulette!

The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #291: The Lion King 2½


One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations,
their work and leisure activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.

On the sixth year of this bike ride, you might expect:
- more inconvenient passageways
- more full moon picnics
- perhaps more "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- certainly more amateurish enthusiasm
- disorientation
- reorientation
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- dance parties
- karaoke
- imaginary histories
- scavenging for fun and sustenance
- more geocaching
- more oblique strategies
- more Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties

- A medium pace (maybe not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- We're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light.
- Maybe some distance;maybe some hills
- Victory donuts!

This week:

The Lion King 2½

In any direct-to-video sequel, there are inevitably some inconsistencies with the original. The production
values are probably a bit lower, the plot a bit more predictable, and the dramatic tensions a bit more forced, it's
true. One might, perhaps rightly, accuse us of lazy writing, or of trying to cynically cash in on past successes
(though there is some question of whether any actual cash (or even any actual success) was involved in the
first one). But isn't it still a story with all the characters that you love? Well, maybe; or maybe not. It is however,
as always, a bike ride.

(30 miles; some smallish hills; no offroading)
