This Just In From Kim Jorkis

"Hey Diz Blog - reporting live from Argentina where news is a buzz about a Disney theme park coming to town. Don't know how the rumor began but I'll say anything after one beer in a local pub. Could it be traced to me? I know not. I started a joke ... which made the whole world laughing."

How To Sound Important About A Theme Park Attraction

Let us consider, for example, however briefly, the much maligned supernatural void concept that is at hand. The thing that individuals who oppose this concept often miss which some do not - is the design and layout perspective and the environmental design we think of - is understood, which is that darkness – utter, stark blackness – is not the absence of material, but the presence of all possible material. A badly exposed piece of film doesn’t turn transparent, it turns pure black- pure I tell you - because it has been exposed to the visible light spectrum! Why the ideas on an attraction design are spectacular in that we understand that darkness which is not only the natural state for an attractions to exist in, but that darkness held not nothing, but the potential for all things to be infinitely and positively oblique and nocturnal!

Hey Hey Hey

I will be in Ascutney tomorrow and the blog will only be updated again on Thursday.

By the Wee Willie Winkie way, and to avoid taking you by a complete surpise: I will be departing on Saturday for a 2-week vacation to Schenectady (in the region of NY during 1 week and then Union College for about another week) and will be back on November 1st or 2nd. I am extremely unlikely (and maybe unwilling) to update the blog at any point during those 2 weeks (because I'm lazy). Wah-ah!!

Friday's Post

Here it is Friday and I am posting from the great outdoors. Autumn is in the air and so is my ego. The blog has been updated today with this post. Do not get fooled by the fact that for some reason I have posted today. My thoughts are extreme, eccentric, and foolish. If this makes no sense to you - then I have done my job. It is a tribute to my favorite blogger (whose name must be kept a secret but who is definitely pompous). Man, isn't blogging the best?

now HEAR this

I will be in Naples until Thursday and the blog will only be updated again on Friday - if the weather is cooperative. I've come to post outdoors. Easier with all the trouble and mess y'know. Worth giving it a try, really. (To be honest though, this subject does not excite me much.)

This Just in From Bunny Bubkus

Our old colleague Bunny from Georgia has sent in the following words:

Disney Wold's Polynesian may have new sod within the next 12 months. I spoke with the guy who mows and it's fairly official.

I can sleep easier tonight. Thank you Bunny.

A Day To Remember

Set aside all the opinions, ideas, and myths ... today Epcot turns 25 and the Magic Kingdom 36 years young. Thanks for the memories and here's to many more great years of entertainment.
