These weird deaths are crazy enough on their own. But the Disney theme park connection takes things to an eerie new level.
Of all the modern Imagineers, Joe Rohde is the most famous. This is partly because he is the creative force behind Animal Kingdom, Aulani, and Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Breakout. But mostly it is because of the Joe Rohde earrings. With his outlandishly stretched earlobe, crusty handlebar mustache, and a forehead as high as […]
Ben Franklin is an unrepentant theme park windbag and he deserves to have his butt kicked. I’m not going to focus on the petty stuff, because that is beneath me. If you want to wear your stringy dishwater hair like a half-bald Michael Bolton, more power to you. Nor will I pick on his frilly-suit/white-socks ensemble. […]
Here we are, 32 years removed from the start of the 21st century. And that’s not just a failing of the public school system. That’s EPCOT Center. It’s recorded in the history books.

Audio Animatronics have evolved a lot since their debut as multicultural stereotypes. Jose, Michael, Pierre, and Fritz were pretty darn cool. They could move. They could talk. They could do both at the same time (something Al Gore never learned). But even Isaac Asimov couldn’t imagine what they’d do next. Answer: Activate Skynet. We’re a […]
