Disney World Steampunk Wedding

8 Jan

I do not generally think of the Disney Wedding Blog as a gathering spot for hipsters, but their recent Steampunk Wedding Spotlight blew me away.

Reminds me of my favorite Disney steampunk attraction, the Nautilus walkthrough at Disneyland Paris. My pictures don’t do it justice, so I’ll link to DLRP Magic’s guide instead. Those Darn Cats episode #131, Disney and the Future, touched on other Disney steampunk favorites as well (with my co-host Lisa, plus my spouse Collateral Damage and friend Geoff Carter).

And it’s almost time for me to participate in a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding myself! As listeners of the Those Darn Cats podcast already know, I’m serving as Matron of Honor in my best friend’s wedding, which will be webcast live on January 25, 2011 (see TDC show notes for details). If you’re going to be at Disney World at that time, drop me a note!

Epic Mickey: Steampunk Dystopian Disney World

6 Aug

From Offworld, a description of the upcoming video game Epic Mickey:

The project — a trip through a fantastical dystopian Magic Kingdom — is being headed by former Deus Ex designer Warren Spector, whose studio was acquired by Disney in 2007 (and who explained why this was such a perfect match in an interview with me at the time). The game was first confirmed to exist last December

More concept art is available at Offworld, including a mecha Goofy.

And a special note to my son: Unlike Kingdom Hearts, it’s confirmed that this will be available for the Wii. You’re gonna have to scoot over and hand me a controller.

Lazy Girl’s Round-up, From the Road

3 Jun

Good lord, I am lazy!

Well, that’s not entirely true. The truth is more like this: I spent the weekend on a little getaway with my husband and our newly adopted seven-year-old pug, and after one night at home to re-pack my suitcase I’m now off on business travel in Austin, Texas. I promise you I am trying to do my part to keep Austin weird.

Having discovered the 531 unread items in my blogreader, I thought I’d give you all a random sampling of what catches my eye as I work my way through it. Kinda random, but isn’t that just what you love about me anyway?

Oh man, I still have 287 unread items . . . but I’m toast. Good night everybody!
