Podcast transcription

Heard a podcast the other day and it went something like this: (the names have been changed to protect the innocent)
Hugh: "Now going back to the days of Horizons at Epcot, I understand you have some interesting insight about the retired and sorely missed classic attraction."
Heff: "Why yes I do. Many guests don't realize that the entrance to Horizons went through a multitude of changes over its existence. Namely the colors on the wall. Although described as light green by cast members, it was actually called coral green. Yet it looked blue to visitors who entered the attraction after sundown - due to the artificial lighting system. Years later it was painted more of an alligator green and if you were lucky enough to enter Horizons as the sun was setting, the walls actually looked pink. By golly pink I tell you!"
Hugh: "I have to agree with you Heff, for those of you not familiar with the entrance, it really looked pink."
Heff: "Now Imagineers didn't want pink - so they painted the walls a forest green and believe it or not it always looked green no matter what time of the day it was. This color though insulted true Epcot aficionados and there was a bit of a backlash. It didn't last long as Horizons was eventually knocked down."
These guys should be on TV!!
