This will be one of my last blog entries as my days of jetting around the galaxy smuggling Jar Jar action figures to France finally caught up with me today as I was captured, accused of crimes against the Empire, and frozen in carbonite. Against all odds, the carbon freezing facility is located at Disney's … Continue reading Carbon Freeze Me!
My wife and I went to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party yesterday, and had a fantastic time.

Remembering at every line just how amazing the current cast was. There wasn't … Continue reading The Final Adventure
Jonathan Coulton is an absolute favorite of mine for his geeky, funny, and sometimes incredibly touching songs. Mash him up with one of the sparkling performers from the Adventurer's Club at Disney, and you get a total tear-jerker of a funny, romantic, nerdy song. We saw this performed just the other night and there wasn't … Continue reading Listening: Adventurer’s Club / Jonathan Coulton Mashup
