Attraction Thoughts Around the Studios

It recently came to my attention that the Studios' Backlot Tour is under refurb until the end of the month. One simple question: What in the bloody earth can you do to this attraction? Paint the trams? It's finally time to shoot this limping horse and do something useful with the real estate.

American Idol opens up this week. I know it's a popular show, but I come to Disney to escape the real world, not be part of it. However, part of me is tempting to go and, in the words of Monty Python's Michael Palin, "Let out a long squawk while I pine for the fjords", or just completely bomb my audition.

That's what I have for today, I'll post Team Voice results later here and on the main blog.

My 1st Team Voice Event

This was my first weekend Team Voice challenge, 4.1 miles in 29:50 on the bike :) This is going to be REAL fun!

Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful...

Not too much long distance running this week....just sprints in between buildings because of the -20 temperatures all week :) No worries, I'll be back on board soon!

Workout Song: My lost audition for American Idol. I do a rendition of The Pointer Sisters' "Neutron Dance". Click here to see it:

Time to Start (For 2010)

Well, it's Sunday night of Marathon week 2009. Great job to everyone, Team Voice or not. It's also not to early to think 2010 (As I am), so I provide this workout courtesy of the Blue Man Group (Granted, I know they're somewhere else in Orlando, but these guys are really good if you've never seen them live). Appropriately, this piece is called Time to Start.

Sorry for Not Updating...

But I'm working on a giant research paper on Epcot for a college class right now. Seriously, for those who haven't been scared away by my Mongello geekiness (Oh Lou!), I cover everything from the Florida Project up until the Living Seas switching over to Nemo. The research process actually is really cool (If you haven't seen Walt's Epcot video, I highly reccommend you do). If anyone is nerdy enough to admit that they want to read my final paper (I'm aiming for a mid December end date), drop me a message.

Just Because It's "The Sinkhole Capital of the World", Doesn't Mean You'll Sink

I usually have a lot of respect for travel writer Peter Greenburg, but following this segment on Tuesday's "Today" show dissing Fountain, Minnesota (A town about a half hour south of where I grew up), really makes me wonder if he's still in it for the Joe Schomes of the world:

For the record, I have visited Fountain numerous times and have yet to fall into a sinkhole (Yes, they exist, just ask around). It's perfectly fine to travel there (They actually have a really nice bike trail, thus the bike reference), and it's a really cool natural sight with the bluffs.
