A Taste of Epcot

Years ago, while I was still working at Disney, one night after a long day of doing puppet shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios (then still called MGM studios) my dear friend and co-worker, Keith, asked me if I'd like to go to Epcot with him and watch the fireworks. I never turned down watching the fireworks at Epcot. So we went and we found a nice place to watch them from in front of the Japanese pavilion. Keith got a glass of plumb wine. I'd never had plumb wine before so I got one too. And I loved it! I hate the taste of most alcohol, but plumb wine is pretty sweet and sort of tastes like what I would imagine wine would taste like in Narnia. 

So last night Peter and I were having dinner at the Japanese restaurant around the corner and I ordered a glass of plum wine. I took a sip and was like "Whoa, Epcot!" and I said "Peter, I think having a glass of plum wine is like a little taste of Epcot." and he had a sip and agreed. And we also both agreed that plum wine tasted vaguely educational, just like Epcot.

Sterling Holloway

"What do you do for relaxation, Sterling?"


One of the greatest voices the world has ever known.
Don't you think?

Roland SH-1000

I really like these videos where someone makes an entire song with just one synthesizers. They really give you an idea of what it's capable off. Also, I think (on and off) that I might like to get an SH-1000 someday. Because it was Roland's first synthesizer ever, I feel like there must be some special magic in it. Does anyone have one and have an opinion?

Ablaze With Wonders!

This was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and I guess it still is! I love this poster -- it merges two of my favorite time periods, the 50's and the 70's. Did I see the new Maleficent movie? Yes, I saw it and I loved it.
