[SEGMENT 1: Disney Detective] (8-12 minutes)

  • Masks and Social Distancing Dropped at Disney World, so what’s the new normal?
  • https://www.wdwmagic.com/attractions/magic-kingdom/news/15jun2021-what-has-changed-as-disney-no-longer-requires-masks-to-be-worn-at-the-walt-disney-world-theme-parks.htm?fbclid=IwAR2idLK6d5rQCGNkDoPK_cHHQQ99oesAsDF8Yn44Y3kE5-lGfJAmeuUY9Ng
  • https://bit.ly/3zz29sx 
    • Walt Disney World theme parks feel a lot more normal today, as new mask guidelines mean that guests no longer need to wear face coverings anywhere inside the Disney theme parks.
      • As the parks reopened from the COVID-19 shutdown, Disney has been slow and cautious, choosing to use a phased approach to reopening, and this latest milestone is no different.
      • So what has changed, and what do you need to know ahead of your visit in the coming days and weeks?
    • There is no question that the crowds are back at Disney’s theme parks. 
      • The end of mask requirements gives those guests who were holding back a reason to return to an experience that is far more normal than it was last year.
      • Most guests are choosing not to wear masks either indoors or outdoors. 
      • Masks are however still present on some guests, and on all Cast Members. 
      • Shields are now optional for Cast Members, and there are a lot less of those on show.
    • Nearly all physical distancing markers on the ground have been removed, and physical distancing is really no more.
      • Signs are still in place advising guests to maintain spacing, but there is nothing in place to enforce any kind of distancing. 
      • In fact, it is interesting to see that guests appear to have already reverted back to pre-COVID days, and are happy to be shoulder to shoulder in tight groups.
    • On the busses, Disney has removed all of the plexiglass dividers, and is loading more guests onto each bus. 
      • Masks are still required, but the boost in capacity should greatly help to improve the bogged down transportation system.
      • Like the busses, the Disney World monorails are also now clear of plexiglass dividers. 
      • Guests are still loaded to a specific row by a Cast Members, and capacity appears to be around 16 guests per cabin. 
      • Small parties may be seated with other parties on the same bench. 
      • Masks are still required.
    • The watercraft have all social distancing removed, and as of today are not enforcing mask use when onboard.
      • Capacity has been increased slowly over the last few months and weeks, but today we are seeing some rides operate at, or very close to maximum capacity.
      • The Jungle Cruise is now loading in a mostly pre-COVID manner, filling every available space, including the center bench.
      • All plexiglass has been removed, with the exception of the barrier between the guest area and the Cast Member skipper.
    • Other attractions still have plexiglass dividers in the queue area, typically those that were semi-permanently installed.
      • Dividers are still in place at Peter Pan’s Flight, it’s a small world, and Haunted Mansion.
      • While we are seeing pre-shows return, including yesterday at Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, there are still some exceptions. 
      • At the Haunted Mansion, guests are still bypassing the stretch room scene.
    • Mobile Order is still required for quick service, but once inside, more tables are open, with dining rooms being at or near 100% capacity.
      • Table Service dining, where open, is operating mostly as normal. 
      • Modified menus are still in place, and availability is limited with not all locations yet open.
    • The changes are ongoing and will continue on a daily basis in the weeks ahead. 
      • Expect to see more of the plexiglass removed from queues, more rides operating at full capacity, the return of more missing pre-shows, and perhaps as soon as July, the return of much more entertainment, including fireworks.
  • Fireworks Spectaculars Are Back at Disney Parks This Summer
  • https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2021/06/fireworks-spectaculars-are-back-at-disney-parks-this-summer/
  • https://bit.ly/3iKEdwl 
    • What could be more perfect this year than a summertime visit to a Disney theme park? 
      • As we continue to see more communities adjust and ease COVID-19 guidelines, there’s a new sense of optimism with many positive signs moving forward. 
      • We’re encouraged by it too, seeing more families making travel plans, friends dining out together more often and more Americans returning to work. 
      • And at Disney theme parks, we’re gradually bringing back more of our beloved park experiences.
    • A Disney tradition since 1957, fireworks shows are what Walt Disney called the perfect “kiss goodnight” at the close of a magical day, and this summer the skies above Disney theme parks will sparkle with color once more. 
      • Beginning in July, just in time for the nation’s Independence Day celebrations, our incredibly popular nighttime fireworks spectaculars are returning to Disney parks!
      • At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, July 1 marks the start of nightly fireworks performances at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT. 
      • “Happily Ever After” Presented by Pandora Jewelry will transform Cinderella Castle with lights, projections and pyrotechnics, as moments from favorite Disney stories encourage you to grab hold of your dreams and make them come true. 
      • And as part of the ongoing transformation of EPCOT, “EPCOT Forever” will produce a spectacle of fireworks, music and lighting effects over World Showcase Lagoon
      • The show highlights the themes of innovation, exploration, imagination and celebration at the core of the park’s past, present and future.
    • As Disneyland park in California welcomes back all guests, the fun starts July 4 with “Mickey’s Mix Magic” presented nightly throughout the summer. 
      • State-of-the-art projections, show lighting and lasers will transform Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle and the façade of “it’s a small world” into a dazzling, family fun dance party that goes sky high with fireworks to celebrate the leader of the club, Mickey Mouse.
    • If you simply can’t wait until your next visit to see some Disney fireworks, you can enjoy a virtual viewing of “Happily Ever After” right now with #DisneyMagicMoments at home. 
      • And stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog for opportunities to join us for upcoming live streams this summer!
      • As a reminder, valid park admission and a park reservation are required for park entry and must be linked to your account. 
      • Visit Disneyworld.com/update and Disneyland.com/update for important information, including park attendance requirements.

[SEGMENT 2: Tales from the Edge of the Galaxy] (8-12 minutes)

  • Cool parents risk the Wrath Of The Mouse
  • https://www.avclub.com/cool-parents-risk-the-wrath-of-the-mouse-by-creating-ho-1847062849?fbclid=IwAR20JcYQdrr6-SFXGJyizrjXEkfVtX8RHINx9Gsr61bMKxi9HjsTYoJoHG0
  • https://bit.ly/3wCaTfE 
    • As the brains that power Disney’s ever-hungry maw work to create new attractions designed to delight, astonish, and mine dollars from the wallets of its theme park visitors, a cool pair of parents have decided to bypass the parks entirely by creating a homemade version of Star Tours in their garage for their kid’s birthday party.
      • A video uploaded to the parent’s YouTube account, left properly anonymous and titled, simply, “Disneyland At Home For Indy’s Birthday,” shows the ride in action. 
      • Modelled on “the original 1987 version of Star Tours,” the garage attraction features a big, handmade space shuttle surrounded by those distinctive Star Wars crates, a droid, and a guy (maybe the dad) in a Han Solo costume. 
      • After taking a properly immersive flight inside the ship, which is rigged up to include a TV and moves around by being jostled from the outside, the kids emerge to meet Leia and run away from Darth Vader by escaping into the light of day.
    • The description says that the daughter “requested a Disneyland themed party at our house for her birthday in April” all the way back in fall, 2019. 
      • After already building “a couple of attractions,” the party had to be cancelled because of the pandemic and rescheduled to be held a year later. 
      • The extra time, judging from the youtube video, seems to have been well spent. 
      • (No word yet, however, on whether these parents also built a tiny Matterhorn Bobsleds coaster in their backyard.)
    • “We do not make ANY MONEY in any way from these videos,” the description continues. 
      • “This party was something fun for our kids and their friends and families to experience, and these subsequent videos were created for those kids and anyone else who might enjoy them. 
      • We hope that these videos are viewed by copyright owners as a love letter to Disneyland …”
      • We hope this plea is enough to satiate the Mouse’s lawyers. 
      • Perhaps they’ll see the smiles on the childrens’ faces in the video and decide to retire to their caverns for now. 
    • Or, who knows, maybe they can just buy it from him and incorporate it into a new theme park extension: Disneyland Garage.
  • Gina Carano Seemingly Teases Star Wars Return With New Photo
  • https://wegotthiscovered.com/tv/gina-carano-photo-leaves-fans-thinking-returning-star-wars/
  • https://bit.ly/2TKEe9e 
    • Gina Carano‘s Star Wars career came to a sudden end earlier this year when she was fired from The Mandalorian, and any spinoffs she may have appeared in, after all the social media controversy surrounding her got too much to handle. 
      • Carano’s loyal fans haven’t given up hope that Disney could reverse their decision, however, and some rumors have claimed that the actress has had chats with the studio about burying the hatchet.
      • Whether that’s true or not we don’t know, but Carano has definitely reignited the talk of a potential return as Cara Dune with her latest Twitter post. 
    • The former MMA star shared an intriguing image that has a clear Star Wars vibe to it. 
      • The photo depicts a shrouded figure – possibly Carano herself – standing on a very Tatooine-like landscape watching not a binary but a trinary sunset. 
      • Further adding to the intrigue, the actress shared the pic without a comment
    • It’s a fact that Carano recently made a surprise comeback to Disney Plus, as her episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls season 6 ended up airing despite the studio initially trying to bury it. 
      • That minor decision reversal is a long way from actually inviting the star back to The Mandalorian, though. 
      • Disney had some pretty strong words about Carano’s politically charged social media posts at the time of her firing, calling them “unacceptable and abhorrent.” 
      • Meanwhile, Gina has hit back at them, too, accusing the studio of bullying her and other actors she knows.
    • It’s possible, then, that this image is a teaser for a Star Wars-esque project that Carano is developing independently, which is actually something that’s been reported before. 
      • That would be one way of allowing herself the opportunity to play in the sci-fi sandbox now that her run as Cara Dune has been cut short.
    • On the other hand, there’s plenty of time for things to change on the Gina Carano/Disney front. 
      • After all, The Mandalorian season 3 has been held up and could take years to arrive.

[SEGMENT 3: Entertainment News] (8-12 minutes)

  • Foo Fighters held a show for vaccinated fans only. Anti-vaxxers including former child star Ricky Schroder protested outside.
  • https://www.insider.com/anti-vaxxers-protested-outside-foo-fighters-show-vaccinated-california-2021-6
  • https://bit.ly/3gJLqdg 
    • Anti-vaccine protesters demonstrated on Tuesday outside a Foo Fighters concert in California that allowed only vaccinated fans, Variety reported.
      • On Saturday, the rock band announced an intimate show at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills ahead of a larger performance with similar requirements at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 20.
      • Attendees had to show proof that they were 21 or over and vaccinated in order to pick up their nontransferable tickets at the club on Sunday, Rolling Stone reported.
    • Variety reported that the protesters appeared to be joined by Ricky Schroder, a former child star.
      • “Dave Grohl is an ignorant punk who needs slapped for supporting Discrimination,” Schroder wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday, referring to the Foo Fighters front man. 
      • “Ignorance comes in all shapes & sizes. Kurt Cobain is laughing at you Dave along with Millions of Patriots….Fool.”
    • Schroder and Foo Fighters’ record label did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
  • Diana Ross Says ‘Thank You’ to Fans With First Album in 15 Years
  • https://www.etonline.com/diana-ross-says-thank-you-to-fans-with-first-album-in-15-years-167511 
  • https://et.tv/35vaOOP 
    • We’re getting the first Diana Ross album in almost two decades, and we’re incredibly thankful.
      • On Thursday, the former Supreme announced that her upcoming album, Thank You, is set to debut this fall. 
      • In a press release, Ross promised “a powerful, inclusive musical message of love and togetherness” that “wholeheartedly acknowledges that we are in this all together.” 
      • “This collection of songs is my gift to you with appreciation and love,” the singer said. 
      • “I am eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to record this glorious music at this time. 
      • I dedicate this songbook of love to all of you, the listeners. 
      • As you hear my voice you hear my heart.”
    • The album will be Ross’s first album in 22 years with entirely original music, as well as her first album of any kind since 2006. 
      • The singer shared that she recorded the album during quarantine in her home studio, with help from award-winning songwriters and producers such as Tayla Parx, Jack Antonoff, Troy Miller, Triangle Park, Spike Stent and Nathanial Ledgewick. 
      • The title track and first single from the album dropped on June 17, along with the album announcement. 
      • Thank You, the album, will be available to stream in September.

  • Lucifer – Netfilx – 5 Seasons
  • https://www.netflix.com/title/80057918
  • https://bit.ly/2SHTjIb 
    • Bored with being the Lord of Hell, the devil relocates to Los Angeles, where he opens a nightclub and forms a connection with a homicide detective.
    • Lucifer is an American urban fantasy superhero television series developed by Tom Kapinos that premiered on Fox on January 25, 2016.[3][4] It is based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg taken from the comic book series The Sandman, who later became the protagonist of a spin-off comic book series, both published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. The series is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television.
    • The series revolves around the story of Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), the Devil, who abandons Hell for Los Angeles where he runs his own nightclub named Lux and becomes a consultant to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). The ensemble and supporting cast include Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker, Kevin Alejandro as Detective Daniel “Dan” Espinoza, D. B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin, and (beginning in season 2) Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez. Filming took place primarily in Vancouver, British Columbia, before production was relocated entirely to Los Angeles, California, beginning with the third season.
    • The first season received mixed reviews from critics, though subsequent seasons were better rated; many critics particularly praised Ellis’ performance. Despite initially high viewership for its debut, ratings remained consistently low throughout the series’ three-season run on Fox. Fox cancelled Lucifer after three seasons; a month later, Netflix picked up the series for the fourth season, which received high ratings and critical acclaim. Netflix renewed the series for a fifth season of 16 episodes; the first half was released on August 21, 2020, and the second half on May 28, 2021. Although the fifth season was initially reported to be the last, in June 2020 the series was renewed for a sixth and final season of ten episodes.

  • Loki
  • Disney Plus
  • https://www.disneyplus.com/series/loki/6pARMvILBGzF 
  • https://bit.ly/2U59TCc 
    • Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Loki streaming series shares continuity with the films of the franchise and takes place after the events of the film Avengers: Endgame in which an alternate version of Loki created a new timeline. 
    • Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki from the film series. 
      • Loki premiered on June 9, 2021, and will consist of six episodes. 
      • It is part of Phase Four of the MCU. 
      • A second season is in development.
    • After stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame, an alternate version of Loki is brought to the mysterious Time Variance Authority (TVA)
      • The TVA is a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and monitors the timeline. 
      • They give Loki a choice: face being erased from existence due to being a “time variant”, or help fix the timeline and stop a greater threat. 
      • Loki ends up trapped in his own crime thriller, traveling through time and altering human history
    • So far we’ve only watched Episode 1, however I can say that it’s the first MCU series on Disney Plus where I like the show after the first Episode
      • It took four episodes of WandaVision before the show had any appeal and two before I really warmed up to Falcon and The Winter Soldier
      • So from my perspective that’s a promising start to the show
      • I’m sure some of that appeal has to be credited to Hiddleston’s portrayal, I’ve always love the character in his hands
      • Much to my surprise part of the appeal is actually Owen Wilson’s performance as well
        • I’ve never been a big fan of Wilson’s. 
        • He seems one step above Nicolas Cage when it comes to one dimensional portrayals.
        • I often struggle to see Wilson as anything more than a clueless pot smoking surfer guy whos injected into situations for comedic relief
        • But in Loki he is demonstrating a depth of character that utterly shocks me
        • He comes across as a grizzled veteran detective one might find in a classic noir Mickey Spillane novel but with a worldly knowledge that makes the offhand observations seem prophetic.
      • The shows appeal might be the retro tech look that gives it a Fallout Vegas feel that I can wrap myself in like a comfortable blanket
      • In reality I’m sure it’s a combination of all of those things and the classic MCU quickly comedy/drama/action vibe we’ve all come to love

and here we go

0:04:22.310,0:04:28.000
[Music]

0:04:25.360,0:04:28.479
go for disney detective so our first

0:04:28.000,0:04:32.080
article

0:04:28.479,0:04:36.080
comes from http://www.magic.com

0:04:32.080,0:04:38.880
and it talks about how um the masks

0:04:36.080,0:04:40.880
and social distancing have basically

0:04:38.880,0:04:44.080
been dropped for the most part

0:04:40.880,0:04:45.199
at walt disney world so walt disney

0:04:44.080,0:04:47.520
world theme park

0:04:45.199,0:04:49.120
is you know starting to feel kind of

0:04:47.520,0:04:51.759
more and more normal each day

0:04:49.120,0:04:52.320
as a new mass guideline means that

0:04:51.759,0:04:55.120
guests

0:04:52.320,0:04:55.840
no longer need to wear face coverings

0:04:55.120,0:04:59.199
anywhere

0:04:55.840,0:05:01.360
inside the actual theme parks so as the

0:04:59.199,0:05:02.160
parks reopened from the covid 19

0:05:01.360,0:05:04.800
shutdown

0:05:02.160,0:05:07.280
disney has been slow and cautious

0:05:04.800,0:05:10.320
choosing to use a phrased appro

0:05:07.280,0:05:13.300
a phased approach to reopening and

0:05:10.320,0:05:13.430
its latest milestone is no different

0:05:13.300,0:05:16.449
[Laughter]

0:05:13.430,0:05:16.449
[Music]

0:05:16.479,0:05:20.240
so what has actually changed so it seems

0:05:19.360,0:05:23.600
that

0:05:20.240,0:05:26.639
um you know there’s uh

0:05:23.600,0:05:28.560
so the the crowds are obviously back

0:05:26.639,0:05:30.000
the end of mask requirements gives

0:05:28.560,0:05:32.960
guests who were holding back

0:05:30.000,0:05:35.440
a reason to go to the park an

0:05:32.960,0:05:37.360
opportunity to finally visit

0:05:35.440,0:05:40.160
most guests are choosing not to wear a

0:05:37.360,0:05:42.720
mask whether indoors or outdoors

0:05:40.160,0:05:43.280
masks however are still present on some

0:05:42.720,0:05:45.440
guests

0:05:43.280,0:05:47.120
and all cast members are actually still

0:05:45.440,0:05:49.199
wearing them too

0:05:47.120,0:05:52.080
shields are now optional for cast

0:05:49.199,0:05:55.120
members and there’s a lot less of them

0:05:52.080,0:05:56.479
uh being seen on so there’s a chance

0:05:55.120,0:05:57.440
that captain america might be out of

0:05:56.479,0:06:00.720
uniform

0:05:57.440,0:06:02.800
right he’s at a different park though

0:06:00.720,0:06:04.960
uh they also had mentioned in the

0:06:02.800,0:06:07.280
article that nearly all of the physical

0:06:04.960,0:06:08.400
distancing markers that had been placed

0:06:07.280,0:06:11.360
on the ground

0:06:08.400,0:06:13.759
have been removed there are still signs

0:06:11.360,0:06:16.400
that are in place advising guests to

0:06:13.759,0:06:19.520
maintain spacing but there is nothing in

0:06:16.400,0:06:21.680
place to enforce any kind of distancing

0:06:19.520,0:06:22.800
in fact the person that wrote the

0:06:21.680,0:06:25.759
article said

0:06:22.800,0:06:28.560
that people were very much shoulder to

0:06:25.759,0:06:30.639
shoulder in in certain cases

0:06:28.560,0:06:31.840
kind of like how it used to be back in

0:06:30.639,0:06:33.919
the day

0:06:31.840,0:06:36.080
on disney buses they used to have

0:06:33.919,0:06:39.440
plexiglass dividers

0:06:36.080,0:06:40.479
in various sections that’s pretty much

0:06:39.440,0:06:44.479
been removed but

0:06:40.479,0:06:48.000
masks are required when you are on

0:06:44.479,0:06:49.520
any of the buses and they and this is

0:06:48.000,0:06:52.639
also to help them

0:06:49.520,0:06:54.720
uh with capacity issues so

0:06:52.639,0:06:55.759
they can put more people on if

0:06:54.720,0:06:58.800
everybody’s wearing

0:06:55.759,0:07:02.720
a mask um there’s also

0:06:58.800,0:07:05.520
a plexiglass divider for the driver

0:07:02.720,0:07:06.240
and also on the monorail as well they

0:07:05.520,0:07:09.440
have now

0:07:06.240,0:07:12.080
removed a lot of the plexiglas but the

0:07:09.440,0:07:13.280
cast members are actually loading you by

0:07:12.080,0:07:16.080
specific rows

0:07:13.280,0:07:17.280
so they’re trying to not cram as many

0:07:16.080,0:07:20.400
people

0:07:17.280,0:07:21.280
in it’s very on disneyland yeah um and

0:07:20.400,0:07:24.880
so they’re still

0:07:21.280,0:07:28.080
kind of you know not full capacity

0:07:24.880,0:07:29.360
but uh definitely putting smaller groups

0:07:28.080,0:07:31.759
together

0:07:29.360,0:07:33.120
to try and get at least 16 people per

0:07:31.759,0:07:35.520
cabin and again

0:07:33.120,0:07:37.440
masks are still required for the boats

0:07:35.520,0:07:41.360
for the different watercrafts

0:07:37.440,0:07:42.800
um max masks aren’t required

0:07:41.360,0:07:44.800
but they did notice that like on the

0:07:42.800,0:07:48.319
jungle cruise um

0:07:44.800,0:07:50.560
now they are basically loading

0:07:48.319,0:07:52.400
how they were pre-covered basically

0:07:50.560,0:07:55.199
filling in every available seat

0:07:52.400,0:07:56.479
including the center bent bench because

0:07:55.199,0:07:59.759
for the longest time

0:07:56.479,0:08:02.400
they were using that as a divider um

0:07:59.759,0:08:03.599
but they still have the barrier up

0:08:02.400,0:08:06.479
between the guests

0:08:03.599,0:08:08.400
and the cast member skipper so they’re

0:08:06.479,0:08:09.599
basically keeping all of the cast still

0:08:08.400,0:08:12.479
safe

0:08:09.599,0:08:13.280
but all of the gas feist and gas right

0:08:12.479,0:08:15.360
basically

0:08:13.280,0:08:17.840
um other attractions still have their

0:08:15.360,0:08:20.479
plexiglass dividers in their queue

0:08:17.840,0:08:22.720
um such as peter pan’s flight it’s a

0:08:20.479,0:08:25.120
small world and the haunted mansion

0:08:22.720,0:08:26.319
and some pre-shows are starting to

0:08:25.120,0:08:28.639
return

0:08:26.319,0:08:30.479
such as mini and mickey and minnie’s

0:08:28.639,0:08:33.919
runaway railroad

0:08:30.479,0:08:36.159
railway but the haunted mansion the

0:08:33.919,0:08:39.279
guests are still bypassing

0:08:36.159,0:08:41.440
the stretching room scene so you know

0:08:39.279,0:08:42.640
slowly but surely i guess you know

0:08:41.440,0:08:43.919
certain things

0:08:42.640,0:08:46.560
the other thing they talk about is

0:08:43.919,0:08:49.040
mobile ordering is still

0:08:46.560,0:08:49.920
being done for quick serve at a hundred

0:08:49.040,0:08:53.279
percent

0:08:49.920,0:08:56.880
um but all of the uh restaurants

0:08:53.279,0:08:59.519
are open to 100 capacity

0:08:56.880,0:09:00.800
uh for the quick serve restaurants the

0:08:59.519,0:09:03.600
table service

0:09:00.800,0:09:06.640
uh dining where most of those where you

0:09:03.600,0:09:08.720
know not every restaurant is open yet

0:09:06.640,0:09:11.200
those seem to be operating kind of as

0:09:08.720,0:09:11.920
normal there’s still a modified menu in

0:09:11.200,0:09:15.279
place

0:09:11.920,0:09:17.600
um and availability is limited

0:09:15.279,0:09:19.040
you know is still limited so obviously

0:09:17.600,0:09:21.839
they’re still pushing everybody

0:09:19.040,0:09:22.720
towards the quick serve with the mobile

0:09:21.839,0:09:25.279
ordering

0:09:22.720,0:09:26.720
for now obviously as attendance rises

0:09:25.279,0:09:30.160
they’re gonna need

0:09:26.720,0:09:34.399
more food i’m sure um so

0:09:30.160,0:09:34.399
you know more changes are coming so

0:09:34.480,0:09:38.399
yeah see i’m puzzled why they took some

0:09:36.560,0:09:40.800
of these away like the

0:09:38.399,0:09:42.399
um the plexiglass on the monorail so the

0:09:40.800,0:09:45.279
plexiglass on the monorail was

0:09:42.399,0:09:47.200
was separating one side of the car from

0:09:45.279,0:09:50.320
the other it wasn’t separating

0:09:47.200,0:09:52.800
people individually in the seats right

0:09:50.320,0:09:53.760
so you’ve already spent the money on it

0:09:52.800,0:09:56.399
you’ve already put it up

0:09:53.760,0:09:57.040
right why take it down right and i guess

0:09:56.399,0:10:00.720
that’s the

0:09:57.040,0:10:03.040
the thing too while why in some other

0:10:00.720,0:10:04.560
cases they’ve just left it up i don’t

0:10:03.040,0:10:07.120
know did it some

0:10:04.560,0:10:08.399
something with the airflow maybe with

0:10:07.120,0:10:10.720
the air conditioning

0:10:08.399,0:10:11.680
on it you know i don’t know i guess

0:10:10.720,0:10:14.720
since you’re sharing

0:10:11.680,0:10:16.959
you know an airflow uh motor there

0:10:14.720,0:10:18.000
it doesn’t really matter if you have it

0:10:16.959,0:10:20.320
up or not you’re still

0:10:18.000,0:10:21.360
exchanging the same air right right so i

0:10:20.320,0:10:24.959
guess you know

0:10:21.360,0:10:28.800
maybe there were certain or the fact of

0:10:24.959,0:10:31.600
you know is it harder to clean

0:10:28.800,0:10:33.120
after so many trips do you even bother

0:10:31.600,0:10:35.519
cleaning it is it easier to clean it

0:10:33.120,0:10:37.440
when it’s on a ride versus

0:10:35.519,0:10:38.640
some of the other areas i don’t know i’d

0:10:37.440,0:10:39.760
be curious to know what some of the

0:10:38.640,0:10:41.440
logistics were

0:10:39.760,0:10:42.959
in motivating them to take some of these

0:10:41.440,0:10:44.959
down because you’re right you know

0:10:42.959,0:10:46.720
you’re still protecting your staff

0:10:44.959,0:10:48.160
right exactly if there’s a reason to

0:10:46.720,0:10:49.600
protect the staff

0:10:48.160,0:10:52.079
then there’s a reason there has to be an

0:10:49.600,0:10:55.040
arrest right the rest of the people

0:10:52.079,0:10:55.440
right so it i don’t know seems a little

0:10:55.040,0:10:59.040
uh

0:10:55.440,0:11:01.680
a little odd yeah and it just seems like

0:10:59.040,0:11:02.640
okay so bring your your park back up to

0:11:01.680,0:11:06.000
capacity but

0:11:02.640,0:11:07.600
why st why not have those safety

0:11:06.000,0:11:09.760
precautions

0:11:07.600,0:11:11.519
still in place right well and that’s the

0:11:09.760,0:11:13.680
thing it’s you know we got to get

0:11:11.519,0:11:15.360
capacity we got to get people in the

0:11:13.680,0:11:16.720
right in the rides we’ve got to get

0:11:15.360,0:11:17.839
people through the gate we need to get

0:11:16.720,0:11:20.560
our money back and it’s

0:11:17.839,0:11:21.440
you know it’s it’s the mad scramble for

0:11:20.560,0:11:23.839
dollars

0:11:21.440,0:11:25.200
yeah and they’re doing it you know you

0:11:23.839,0:11:26.399
look at the picture we have up on the

0:11:25.200,0:11:28.880
screen here now

0:11:26.399,0:11:30.399
yeah like that terrifies me oh

0:11:28.880,0:11:32.240
absolutely in a group of people like

0:11:30.399,0:11:32.720
that now we’re all vaccinated at this

0:11:32.240,0:11:34.959
point

0:11:32.720,0:11:36.160
yeah i’d still be terrified to be in a

0:11:34.959,0:11:38.399
group of people

0:11:36.160,0:11:39.200
packed that close together yeah and

0:11:38.399,0:11:41.680
knowing how

0:11:39.200,0:11:42.640
tightly that disney’s packed together

0:11:41.680,0:11:45.680
for everything else

0:11:42.640,0:11:46.560
right you know in lines on buses on the

0:11:45.680,0:11:49.040
monorail

0:11:46.560,0:11:49.680
absolutely during a fireworks show or a

0:11:49.040,0:11:51.600
concert

0:11:49.680,0:11:52.959
i mean they pack you in shoulder to

0:11:51.600,0:11:55.440
shoulder yep

0:11:52.959,0:11:56.079
and they do that because disney has no

0:11:55.440,0:11:58.639
compunction

0:11:56.079,0:11:59.600
whatsoever about overcrowding the police

0:11:58.639,0:12:01.680
nope

0:11:59.600,0:12:03.519
which you know i just i think that’s

0:12:01.680,0:12:06.800
reckless that’s greedy

0:12:03.519,0:12:08.800
and it does your customers a disservice

0:12:06.800,0:12:10.320
but i’m just then again i’m not a fan of

0:12:08.800,0:12:13.839
disney either so right i’m

0:12:10.320,0:12:14.720
i’m interested to see you know cause i

0:12:13.839,0:12:17.360
could probably

0:12:14.720,0:12:18.320
guarantee not everybody in that picture

0:12:17.360,0:12:22.079
is vaccinated

0:12:18.320,0:12:24.639
absolutely so because republicans go to

0:12:22.079,0:12:26.480
disney too

0:12:24.639,0:12:27.760
but well no i see one person wearing a

0:12:26.480,0:12:29.680
mask uh in

0:12:27.760,0:12:31.200
in the corner over there um but i’m

0:12:29.680,0:12:33.600
interested to see

0:12:31.200,0:12:35.760
is that who walt’s pointing to maybe oh

0:12:33.600,0:12:38.480
look there’s somebody where

0:12:35.760,0:12:40.079
is there gonna be a spike of any sort

0:12:38.480,0:12:41.120
you know because we really haven’t

0:12:40.079,0:12:43.519
well and they were talking they were

0:12:41.120,0:12:44.240
just recently talking uh they did a

0:12:43.519,0:12:46.480
survey of

0:12:44.240,0:12:47.680
residents of california not specifically

0:12:46.480,0:12:50.560
disney

0:12:47.680,0:12:52.079
park goers but the majority of people

0:12:50.560,0:12:55.120
that they surveyed in california

0:12:52.079,0:12:57.279
think that california opened too quickly

0:12:55.120,0:12:58.720
and scientists think that there’s going

0:12:57.279,0:13:00.560
to be a spike especially with this

0:12:58.720,0:13:02.000
this delta variant that’s going around

0:13:00.560,0:13:04.800
now that’s

0:13:02.000,0:13:06.480
more more violent than anything else

0:13:04.800,0:13:08.800
it’s more severe when you get it

0:13:06.480,0:13:10.560
right fortunately the vaccines are

0:13:08.800,0:13:14.160
effective against it

0:13:10.560,0:13:16.320
but there’s you know over 35

0:13:14.160,0:13:18.639
of the population refuses to get a

0:13:16.320,0:13:21.440
vaccine at this point

0:13:18.639,0:13:22.320
they’re all susceptible to this and

0:13:21.440,0:13:24.800
going back

0:13:22.320,0:13:26.160
in without having more people vaccinate

0:13:24.800,0:13:28.240
it right

0:13:26.160,0:13:29.920
is just over exposing that population

0:13:28.240,0:13:32.800
yeah i i just

0:13:29.920,0:13:34.480
i don’t know it well say we’re not going

0:13:32.800,0:13:37.200
to disney on vacation

0:13:34.480,0:13:37.839
yeah we had thought about it and then we

0:13:37.200,0:13:41.199
we didn’t

0:13:37.839,0:13:42.560
so and we didn’t thank you disney for

0:13:41.199,0:13:44.240
convincing us otherwise

0:13:42.560,0:13:45.760
yeah you’re not getting our money this

0:13:44.240,0:13:49.120
year nope not yet

0:13:45.760,0:13:50.560
speaking of uh disney doing things uh

0:13:49.120,0:13:52.240
getting back to normal what’s our next

0:13:50.560,0:13:54.560
story yeah so this was some

0:13:52.240,0:13:55.680
you know kind of happy news i guess for

0:13:54.560,0:13:58.079
a lot of people

0:13:55.680,0:14:00.000
it seems that fireworks are going to be

0:13:58.079,0:14:02.959
coming back this summer

0:14:00.000,0:14:05.760
so as we continue to see can uh you know

0:14:02.959,0:14:06.560
communities adjust and ease kovid 19

0:14:05.760,0:14:08.480
guidelines

0:14:06.560,0:14:10.320
there’s a new sense of optimism

0:14:08.480,0:14:11.600
obviously with many positive signs

0:14:10.320,0:14:14.240
moving forward

0:14:11.600,0:14:15.199
so disney they are starting to finally

0:14:14.240,0:14:18.240
bring back

0:14:15.199,0:14:21.519
you know some beloved experiences

0:14:18.240,0:14:24.399
so a disney tradition since 1957

0:14:21.519,0:14:26.480
fireworks shows are what disney walt

0:14:24.399,0:14:27.199
disney always called the perfect good

0:14:26.480,0:14:29.199
night kiss

0:14:27.199,0:14:31.199
at the close of a magical day yes

0:14:29.199,0:14:32.560
flaming explosions in your face are a

0:14:31.199,0:14:35.440
great good night kiss

0:14:32.560,0:14:37.279
i always liked them so beginning in july

0:14:35.440,0:14:40.240
just in time for the nation’s

0:14:37.279,0:14:42.160

0:14:58.000,0:15:05.279

0:15:20.240,0:15:24.639
going on

0:15:21.120,0:15:26.160
over there so uh the information

0:15:24.639,0:15:29.279
actually came from

0:15:26.160,0:15:33.120
the uh disney blog uh

0:15:29.279,0:15:35.519
disney parks blog so they also mentioned

0:15:33.120,0:15:36.240
that to be on the lookout that there

0:15:35.519,0:15:39.920
might be

0:15:36.240,0:15:40.800
some virtual viewings of uh happily ever

0:15:39.920,0:15:43.759
after

0:15:40.800,0:15:44.480
uh coming for those that can’t be at the

0:15:43.759,0:15:47.120
parks

0:15:44.480,0:15:48.480
when the the fireworks start so great so

0:15:47.120,0:15:49.920
we’re getting back to normal so let’s

0:15:48.480,0:15:51.680
blow stuff up

0:15:49.920,0:15:52.959
that’s great american way well and

0:15:51.680,0:15:56.480
that’s the other thing too

0:15:52.959,0:15:58.399
is you know i don’t know how much of

0:15:56.480,0:16:02.480
their fireworks were

0:15:58.399,0:16:05.680
like surplus or whatnot because

0:16:02.480,0:16:08.880
i had heard various different

0:16:05.680,0:16:11.360
news outlets we’re talking about um

0:16:08.880,0:16:14.079
that the fireworks because of the

0:16:11.360,0:16:17.440
shipping issues and things like that

0:16:14.079,0:16:21.040
and fireworks coming from china

0:16:17.440,0:16:22.480
and overseas that a lot of towns

0:16:21.040,0:16:24.639
you know local towns that would do

0:16:22.480,0:16:26.560
firework shows weren’t going to be able

0:16:24.639,0:16:27.759
to do them because there weren’t

0:16:26.560,0:16:30.480
fireworks that were going to be

0:16:27.759,0:16:32.639
available so

0:16:30.480,0:16:34.079
i wonder you know with the the shows

0:16:32.639,0:16:37.440
going on in disney

0:16:34.079,0:16:39.120
disney world and disneyland how much

0:16:37.440,0:16:39.440
well i could almost guarantee you that

0:16:39.120,0:16:42.320
they

0:16:39.440,0:16:43.360
make all theirs domestically um you know

0:16:42.320,0:16:44.800
they’ve got their entire

0:16:43.360,0:16:46.480
i’m sure they probably have their own

0:16:44.800,0:16:47.279
sourcing the raw materials might be a

0:16:46.480,0:16:49.199
different story

0:16:47.279,0:16:50.480
right like i wonder heroes are gonna be

0:16:49.199,0:16:51.199
more expensive you can source them

0:16:50.480,0:16:53.680
domestically

0:16:51.199,0:16:54.880
right and i wonder if you’ll be able to

0:16:53.680,0:16:58.480
tell the difference

0:16:54.880,0:17:01.279
if like the show’s a little shorter or

0:16:58.480,0:17:02.639
you might have something a little more

0:17:01.279,0:17:05.679
less stuff

0:17:02.639,0:17:08.319
less material used right right um

0:17:05.679,0:17:10.079
but you gotta also remember a good

0:17:08.319,0:17:11.360
portion of the firework shows that they

0:17:10.079,0:17:13.600
do where laser light shows

0:17:11.360,0:17:14.720
trails right so really cut down on the

0:17:13.600,0:17:16.720
amount of fiber well and that’s the

0:17:14.720,0:17:20.079
thing is are they going to be doing more

0:17:16.720,0:17:23.120
laser light stuff to kind of

0:17:20.079,0:17:24.319
compensate for freaking laser beams mice

0:17:23.120,0:17:25.760
with laser beams so

0:17:24.319,0:17:28.880
it’ll be interesting you know so that’s

0:17:25.760,0:17:31.600
kind of good news for people that

0:17:28.880,0:17:32.080
you know as we’ve been talking about you

0:17:31.600,0:17:34.640
know

0:17:32.080,0:17:37.039
all of these experiences that all the

0:17:34.640,0:17:38.640
stuff they took away that they took away

0:17:37.039,0:17:40.240
that they’re starting to finally you

0:17:38.640,0:17:41.280
know bring back and i’ll guarantee you

0:17:40.240,0:17:42.240
when they start to bring them back

0:17:41.280,0:17:43.120
they’re going to raise their prices

0:17:42.240,0:17:45.200
again of course

0:17:43.120,0:17:46.240
because you know you’re paying full

0:17:45.200,0:17:48.640
price for

0:17:46.240,0:17:51.039
30 70 of the shows that you were getting

0:17:48.640,0:17:53.679
before so now if we go to 100 percent

0:17:51.039,0:17:54.080
we can charge 15 more per ticket now

0:17:53.679,0:17:56.320
right

0:17:54.080,0:17:57.360
that’s what they’re going to do so that

0:17:56.320,0:18:00.240
was all we had for

0:17:57.360,0:18:00.559
our disney detective we’ll be right back

q pew pew

0:19:21.600,0:19:28.400
pew pew pew pew okay so

0:19:25.120,0:19:29.039
this was a really cool uh article that i

0:19:28.400,0:19:32.960
found

0:19:29.039,0:19:35.840
uh that was on avclub.com and it was

0:19:32.960,0:19:37.280
parents risk the wrath of the mouse by

0:19:35.840,0:19:40.720
creating

0:19:37.280,0:19:43.600
a very cool ride um

0:19:40.720,0:19:44.400
so it seems that when they had asked

0:19:43.600,0:19:46.880
their

0:19:44.400,0:19:48.160
child what they wanted for their

0:19:46.880,0:19:50.559
birthday party

0:19:48.160,0:19:53.360
they had decided that they wanted the

0:19:50.559,0:19:56.400
child had wanted a disneyland at home

0:19:53.360,0:19:59.760
party for their birthday um

0:19:56.400,0:20:02.799
so it seems that the parents who

0:19:59.760,0:20:03.919
remained anonymous in this video um and

0:20:02.799,0:20:07.440
it was basically just

0:20:03.919,0:20:09.520
uploaded uh with the title disneyland at

0:20:07.440,0:20:12.120
home for indy’s birthday

0:20:09.520,0:20:13.280
it seems that they modeled the original

0:20:12.120,0:20:16.720
1987

0:20:13.280,0:20:19.919
version of star tours in their garage

0:20:16.720,0:20:20.640
and it featured a big handmade space

0:20:19.919,0:20:23.840
shuttle

0:20:20.640,0:20:27.120
surrounded by um

0:20:23.840,0:20:29.600
distinctive star wars crates a droid

0:20:27.120,0:20:30.640
and a guy that might possibly have been

0:20:29.600,0:20:33.840
the dad

0:20:30.640,0:20:35.919
uh who was dressed as han solo

0:20:33.840,0:20:39.760
they basically take you on this little

0:20:35.919,0:20:41.760
trip it moves around you get jostled

0:20:39.760,0:20:43.440
and then when you emerge kids get to

0:20:41.760,0:20:46.799
meet princess leia

0:20:43.440,0:20:50.799
and then before they leave the ride

0:20:46.799,0:20:54.000
darth vader comes to try and take them

0:20:50.799,0:20:56.799
and uh han solo basically fights

0:20:54.000,0:20:58.960
and you know he he hits something so the

0:20:56.799,0:21:02.159
garage door opens so the kids can

0:20:58.960,0:21:04.159
escape um so

0:21:02.159,0:21:06.480
the description basically said requested

0:21:04.159,0:21:07.760
a disneyland themed party at her house

0:21:06.480,0:21:11.919
for her birthday

0:21:07.760,0:21:14.080
which was in april uh back in 2019

0:21:11.919,0:21:16.240
it seems that the couple had actually

0:21:14.080,0:21:18.000
built some other attractions

0:21:16.240,0:21:20.960
but the party was cancelled because of

0:21:18.000,0:21:22.320
the pandemic and rescheduled to be held

0:21:20.960,0:21:26.640
a year later

0:21:22.320,0:21:29.600
um so no idea what other

0:21:26.640,0:21:30.559
rides these parents had you know in

0:21:29.600,0:21:32.320
their house

0:21:30.559,0:21:34.799
um you know the article talked about

0:21:32.320,0:21:38.240
maybe they had like a bobsled

0:21:34.799,0:21:40.960
in their backyard um but it was really

0:21:38.240,0:21:42.720
very cute the way that they did it and

0:21:40.960,0:21:44.320
you know to see all the smiles on the

0:21:42.720,0:21:46.000
kids faces

0:21:44.320,0:21:47.360
and even some of the parents that that

0:21:46.000,0:21:50.640
took the ride

0:21:47.360,0:21:51.919
it was it was pretty cool so yeah we

0:21:50.640,0:21:53.919
watched through

0:21:51.919,0:21:56.080
before we started the podcast and i got

0:21:53.919,0:21:58.799
to tell you this was really

0:21:56.080,0:21:59.120
probably the coolest thing i think i

0:21:58.799,0:22:02.320
have

0:21:59.120,0:22:03.360
ever seen somebody do at their house now

0:22:02.320,0:22:06.240
i had a friend of mine

0:22:03.360,0:22:07.919
years ago who used to build out in his

0:22:06.240,0:22:10.960
two-car garage

0:22:07.919,0:22:14.320
a full fun house walls and

0:22:10.960,0:22:17.440
uh uh scare things right

0:22:14.320,0:22:19.120
drop floors in a elevator at one point

0:22:17.440,0:22:20.799
and i thought that was cool but this

0:22:19.120,0:22:21.600
totally takes time because you would

0:22:20.799,0:22:24.640
totally

0:22:21.600,0:22:27.280
yeah oh man this was just so cool

0:22:24.640,0:22:28.000
to have vader come in at the end right

0:22:27.280,0:22:30.559
right

0:22:28.000,0:22:32.400
it was it was just incredible and like

0:22:30.559,0:22:33.360
can you imagine being the parents on the

0:22:32.400,0:22:36.159
block that have this

0:22:33.360,0:22:38.000
oh my god yeah absolutely you would

0:22:36.159,0:22:40.559
never get any peace and quiet

0:22:38.000,0:22:41.760
oh and i’m sure like once the birthday

0:22:40.559,0:22:44.400
party was over

0:22:41.760,0:22:44.799
you know people would still want to come

0:22:44.400,0:22:46.240
over

0:22:44.799,0:22:48.400
and it was cute because if you’re not

0:22:46.240,0:22:50.640
familiar with the ride

0:22:48.400,0:22:52.000
and this is based off of the original

0:22:50.640,0:22:55.440
version of the ride

0:22:52.000,0:22:56.240
um there’s a the the pilot is rex and

0:22:55.440,0:22:59.039
he’s this little

0:22:56.240,0:22:59.520
robot they even have a little puppet of

0:22:59.039,0:23:02.159
him

0:22:59.520,0:23:03.840
you know when you get on the ride so you

0:23:02.159,0:23:06.559
know they they put a lot of

0:23:03.840,0:23:08.480
effort into that it’s so well done the

0:23:06.559,0:23:09.200
fact that they can fit three people on

0:23:08.480,0:23:11.679
there

0:23:09.200,0:23:13.600
and have one person do all the motion

0:23:11.679,0:23:15.280
motion simulations for him right

0:23:13.600,0:23:17.360
right they built the whole thing you’ve

0:23:15.280,0:23:17.919
got the soundtrack going on you’ve got a

0:23:17.360,0:23:20.000
tv

0:23:17.919,0:23:21.120
inside this ship that he made right

0:23:20.000,0:23:23.919
right it was just

0:23:21.120,0:23:25.039
the the level of detail like if disney

0:23:23.919,0:23:27.600
doesn’t see this and

0:23:25.039,0:23:29.520
hire this guy they’re totally missing

0:23:27.600,0:23:30.080
out yeah and we have no idea where these

0:23:29.520,0:23:32.480
people

0:23:30.080,0:23:33.520
are located i’m guessing they’re

0:23:32.480,0:23:36.799
probably

0:23:33.520,0:23:38.720
in california but yeah

0:23:36.799,0:23:40.960
they’re very cool which which stinks

0:23:38.720,0:23:42.960
because you know we’re not and

0:23:40.960,0:23:44.640
i i i want to be friends with them i

0:23:42.960,0:23:45.600
don’t want to ride it i just want to go

0:23:44.640,0:23:50.960
and see

0:23:45.600,0:23:52.559
right because he did the whole garage

0:23:50.960,0:23:54.159
you’ve got the lights on the walls

0:23:52.559,0:23:56.000
you’ve got vader showing up

0:23:54.159,0:23:58.240
yeah you’ve got the mom and dad in

0:23:56.000,0:24:01.120
costume was as han and leia

0:23:58.240,0:24:02.880
it’s it was it was cool it was cool yeah

0:24:01.120,0:24:04.960
and you know they do mention in their

0:24:02.880,0:24:05.919
in their i guess interview of their post

0:24:04.960,0:24:07.520
that

0:24:05.919,0:24:09.279
they’re they don’t make any money off of

0:24:07.520,0:24:12.559
this right right this is

0:24:09.279,0:24:14.799
purely done just for the fun of the kids

0:24:12.559,0:24:16.000
and to see the look on the kids faces

0:24:14.799,0:24:18.559
when they get out of that

0:24:16.000,0:24:19.520
oh it’s just it’s i can’t imagine how

0:24:18.559,0:24:21.520
much he spent but

0:24:19.520,0:24:22.799
just to look like yeah the one kid said

0:24:21.520,0:24:24.720
you know how long have you been waiting

0:24:22.799,0:24:26.720
to get on in there like an hour

0:24:24.720,0:24:28.720
yeah so it’s just like disney so it’s

0:24:26.720,0:24:30.559
just like disney so you probably

0:24:28.720,0:24:31.840
you probably could be outside and get

0:24:30.559,0:24:33.679
some cake and

0:24:31.840,0:24:35.440
you know a hot dog or something before

0:24:33.679,0:24:35.840
you got on the ride the only thing that

0:24:35.440,0:24:37.760
people

0:24:35.840,0:24:39.200
that i would recommend is fast passes

0:24:37.760,0:24:41.520
right or a gift shop

0:24:39.200,0:24:42.559
or gift shop right maybe that was their

0:24:41.520,0:24:44.559
goodie bag when

0:24:42.559,0:24:47.440
when you left for the day so that was

0:24:44.559,0:24:50.080
our good star wars story

0:24:47.440,0:24:50.720
now for some reason she just won’t go

0:24:50.080,0:24:53.679
away

0:24:50.720,0:24:55.520
like the fifth week in a row we need to

0:24:53.679,0:24:56.320
talk about gina carano yeah well you

0:24:55.520,0:24:58.799
know

0:24:56.320,0:25:00.080
so and this was actually there there

0:24:58.799,0:25:03.039
were two different articles

0:25:00.080,0:25:03.360
that had popped up uh for her basically

0:25:03.039,0:25:06.240
the

0:25:03.360,0:25:06.880
the same thing um so it seems that you

0:25:06.240,0:25:08.880
know

0:25:06.880,0:25:10.400
gina’s star wars career obviously we

0:25:08.880,0:25:14.159
know came to a sudden

0:25:10.400,0:25:17.039
end earlier this year when she was fired

0:25:14.159,0:25:17.440
and obviously any you know spin-offs

0:25:17.039,0:25:20.080
were

0:25:17.440,0:25:20.559
were lost because of it but her loyal

0:25:20.080,0:25:22.720
fans

0:25:20.559,0:25:24.400
haven’t given up hope that disney could

0:25:22.720,0:25:27.360
reverse their decision

0:25:24.400,0:25:28.480
however and some rumors have claimed

0:25:27.360,0:25:31.279
that the actress

0:25:28.480,0:25:31.840
may have had some chats with the studio

0:25:31.279,0:25:34.799
about

0:25:31.840,0:25:35.520
burying the hatchet obviously we still

0:25:34.799,0:25:38.880
don’t know

0:25:35.520,0:25:42.880
but now she had made a post on twitter

0:25:38.880,0:25:44.400
that fans are thinking oh this is it

0:25:42.880,0:25:46.559
she’s coming back

0:25:44.400,0:25:48.000
so the former mma star shared an

0:25:46.559,0:25:51.279
intriguing image

0:25:48.000,0:25:54.400
that has a clear star wars vibe to it

0:25:51.279,0:25:58.000
the photo depicts a shrouded figure

0:25:54.400,0:26:02.000
possibly herself standing in a on a very

0:25:58.000,0:26:06.000
tattooing like landscape watching

0:26:02.000,0:26:09.760
um watching non

0:26:06.000,0:26:10.720
not a oh not a binary but a trinary

0:26:09.760,0:26:14.400
sunset

0:26:10.720,0:26:16.799
i was like what uh further adding to the

0:26:14.400,0:26:19.279
intrigue the actress had shared the

0:26:16.799,0:26:22.240
photo without any comment so of course

0:26:19.279,0:26:23.760
everybody saw the photo and was like yes

0:26:22.240,0:26:27.840
she’s on tatooine

0:26:23.760,0:26:30.970
those are three sons yes she’s back

0:26:27.840,0:26:35.279
people can’t count yeah you know anyway

0:26:30.970,0:26:38.000
[Laughter]

0:26:35.279,0:26:39.039
so obviously the fact that you know

0:26:38.000,0:26:41.200
chrono had

0:26:39.039,0:26:43.679
actually recently made a surprise come

0:26:41.200,0:26:45.600
back on disney plus as her episode of

0:26:43.679,0:26:48.159
running wild with bear grylls

0:26:45.600,0:26:49.120
season six ended up airing despite the

0:26:48.159,0:26:51.760
studio

0:26:49.120,0:26:53.200
initially trying to bury it so the minor

0:26:51.760,0:26:55.039
decision reversal

0:26:53.200,0:26:57.039
is a long way from her actually being

0:26:55.039,0:27:00.240
invited back to star wars

0:26:57.039,0:27:02.400
uh or back to the mandalorian so disney

0:27:00.240,0:27:05.679
obviously had some very strong words

0:27:02.400,0:27:07.840
about the post that she had made um

0:27:05.679,0:27:10.559
you know and she’s obviously come back

0:27:07.840,0:27:14.880
too accusing the studio of bullying her

0:27:10.559,0:27:15.919
and other actors so is it a tease was it

0:27:14.880,0:27:19.200
just

0:27:15.919,0:27:22.399
her trying to get some sort of

0:27:19.200,0:27:24.640
publicity because nobody well yeah

0:27:22.399,0:27:25.760
we had talked about the fact that she

0:27:24.640,0:27:29.200
was

0:27:25.760,0:27:30.159
in talks with engaging in another sci-fi

0:27:29.200,0:27:33.440
project right

0:27:30.159,0:27:34.080
so who knows that quite likely is a shot

0:27:33.440,0:27:37.600
from that

0:27:34.080,0:27:39.279
project right or just

0:27:37.600,0:27:41.679
hey that’s a really cool picture i’m

0:27:39.279,0:27:43.440
gonna post it and have nothing

0:27:41.679,0:27:45.120
you know right because she could be

0:27:43.440,0:27:46.840
making the whole thing up right and what

0:27:45.120,0:27:50.080
was funny was the other

0:27:46.840,0:27:53.440
article uh that had posted the story

0:27:50.080,0:27:56.000
was very much more pro

0:27:53.440,0:27:58.399
her and it was all of these people that

0:27:56.000,0:27:58.880
uh were posting on twitter was like yeah

0:27:58.399,0:28:02.080
she’s

0:27:58.880,0:28:05.679
back it’s confirmed you know

0:28:02.080,0:28:07.679
this better not be a rumor

0:28:05.679,0:28:09.200
disney i don’t know there was no

0:28:07.679,0:28:11.360
confirmation exactly

0:28:09.200,0:28:14.559
these are you know well yeah we know who

0:28:11.360,0:28:14.559
they are and it’s twitter

0:28:15.520,0:28:19.039
they facts really aren’t anything that

0:28:17.919,0:28:22.080
ever stood out their way

0:28:19.039,0:28:25.120
so i promise no no story next week

0:28:22.080,0:28:25.840
next week we i absolutely refuse to

0:28:25.120,0:28:28.720
introduce

0:28:25.840,0:28:29.279
a gina carano story next week although i

0:28:28.720,0:28:31.200
will say

0:28:29.279,0:28:33.279
i’m a little disappointed in you this

0:28:31.200,0:28:35.600
week why you did not have

0:32:03.840,0:32:06.000
course

0:32:04.480,0:32:07.919
maybe he and kevin surbo can get

0:32:06.000,0:32:10.320
together they probably are like

0:32:07.919,0:32:11.679

0:32:10.320,0:32:13.679

0:32:11.679,0:32:16.350
listening to uh who’s the who’s the

0:32:13.679,0:32:17.600
the redneck rock guy oh um

0:32:16.350,0:32:19.919
[Music]

0:32:17.600,0:32:20.720
ted nugent around this and ted nugent

0:32:19.919,0:32:23.840
right so

0:32:20.720,0:32:27.360
uh he had posted on his facebook uh

0:32:23.840,0:32:29.720
dave grohl is an ignorant punk

0:32:27.360,0:32:31.200
who needs slapped for supporting

0:32:29.720,0:32:34.559
discrimination

0:32:31.200,0:32:35.440
um referring to the front man of the foo

0:32:34.559,0:32:38.399
fighters

0:32:35.440,0:32:40.640
ignorance comes in all shapes and sizes

0:32:38.399,0:32:42.799
kirk cobain is laughing at you along

0:32:40.640,0:32:45.279
with millions of patriots

0:32:42.799,0:32:47.120
fool he does know kurt cobain’s dead

0:32:45.279,0:32:49.279
right i know

0:32:47.120,0:32:51.120
well i think that was you know maybe he

0:32:49.279,0:32:54.240
meant like kurt cobain was rolling

0:32:51.120,0:32:56.720
you know well he can’t listen he’s dead

0:32:54.240,0:32:58.159
right he’s dead maybe analogy like he’s

0:32:56.720,0:32:58.960
rolling over in his grave or something

0:32:58.159,0:33:01.360
would work right

0:32:58.960,0:33:02.720
as opposed to he’s laughing at you so

0:33:01.360,0:33:04.880
obviously schroeder

0:33:02.720,0:33:06.240
and the foo fighters record label

0:33:04.880,0:33:09.120
haven’t made any

0:33:06.240,0:33:10.159
comments about the requests um i had

0:33:09.120,0:33:12.559
heard about

0:33:10.159,0:33:13.919
the madison square garden concert

0:33:12.559,0:33:16.080
beforehand

0:33:13.919,0:33:17.279
and they were getting a little bit of

0:33:16.080,0:33:20.080
flack uh

0:33:17.279,0:33:21.760
from from fans saying that’s it i’m done

0:33:20.080,0:33:23.440
i’m never listening to you again

0:33:21.760,0:33:24.880
i’m throwing out all your records

0:33:23.440,0:33:28.000
because you know

0:33:24.880,0:33:29.200
blah blah blah okay and you bought them

0:33:28.000,0:33:30.880
already so you can throw them out

0:33:29.200,0:33:32.640
they’re not making any money

0:33:30.880,0:33:33.919
they’re not making any money off of you

0:33:32.640,0:33:36.960
and basically

0:33:33.919,0:33:40.960
they had said that the reason why

0:33:36.960,0:33:44.080
was to do with state mandates

0:33:40.960,0:33:46.240
in the state of new york so you know it

0:33:44.080,0:33:48.000
wasn’t necessarily

0:33:46.240,0:33:50.000
their role it was kind of everybody

0:33:48.000,0:33:51.200
else’s role and then because they were

0:33:50.000,0:33:54.480
doing such a small

0:33:51.200,0:33:57.360
intimate um uh

0:33:54.480,0:33:59.120
venue they were looking out again for

0:33:57.360,0:34:01.679
the safety of their fans

0:33:59.120,0:34:03.919
so yeah god forbid these people look out

0:34:01.679,0:34:06.880
for this unlike disney who doesn’t

0:34:03.919,0:34:07.440
right you had the foo fighters who do

0:34:06.880,0:34:09.280
right

0:34:07.440,0:34:10.720
and you know i i saw this article and

0:34:09.280,0:34:12.399
the first thing that comes to mind are

0:34:10.720,0:34:15.119
the darwin awards

0:34:12.399,0:34:17.200
and i’m thinking my god do you have any

0:34:15.119,0:34:18.399
idea how many candidates there are for

0:34:17.200,0:34:21.679
darwin awards

0:34:18.399,0:34:23.760
you know in the last year and a half now

0:34:21.679,0:34:25.520
yeah ricky schroeder now is chief among

0:34:23.760,0:34:28.720
them at this point in time

0:34:25.520,0:34:30.159
in my opinion yeah so okay well the foo

0:34:28.720,0:34:31.839
fighters are now the poo fighters

0:34:30.159,0:34:32.320
according to ricky schroeder but you

0:34:31.839,0:34:33.760
know what

0:34:32.320,0:34:36.000
it’s going to make me want to listen to

0:34:33.760,0:34:37.679
them even more now absolutely

0:34:36.000,0:34:39.520

0:34:37.679,0:34:40.079
watching silver spoons either i refuse

0:37:28.720,0:37:33.119
seasons available

0:37:30.079,0:37:34.079
the second half of season five just

0:37:33.119,0:37:37.119
dropped

0:37:34.079,0:37:39.839
um i guess it was the end of may um

0:37:37.119,0:37:42.000
and what was interesting was that season

0:37:39.839,0:37:45.359
five was actually supposed to be their

0:37:42.000,0:37:47.599
last season but last

0:37:45.359,0:37:49.839
uh june i believe it was they had

0:37:47.599,0:37:50.240
announced that they would be coming back

0:37:49.839,0:37:53.440
for

0:37:50.240,0:37:54.960
a sixth and final season so just when

0:37:53.440,0:37:57.760
you think they were done

0:37:54.960,0:37:59.359
nope they got one more season to go uh

0:37:57.760,0:38:02.400
so the premise behind the show

0:37:59.359,0:38:05.200
is bored with being the lord of hell

0:38:02.400,0:38:06.640
the devil relocates to los angeles where

0:38:05.200,0:38:08.720
he opens a nightclub

0:38:06.640,0:38:10.240
and forms a connection with a homicide

0:38:08.720,0:38:13.040
detective

0:38:10.240,0:38:13.920
lucifer is an american urban fantasy

0:38:13.040,0:38:16.800
superhero

0:38:13.920,0:38:18.400
television series that had originally

0:38:16.800,0:38:21.680
appeared on fox

0:38:18.400,0:38:24.800
in 2016 uh was on

0:38:21.680,0:38:27.920
fox for three seasons i believe

0:38:24.800,0:38:31.359
um and then they cancelled it

0:38:27.920,0:38:32.000
but fans were you know sung so gung-ho

0:38:31.359,0:38:35.200
with it and

0:38:32.000,0:38:38.160
netflix actually picked it up for

0:38:35.200,0:38:40.240
the other three seasons um and what was

0:38:38.160,0:38:42.960
nice was that when they brought it

0:38:40.240,0:38:45.040
to netflix they were able to be be a

0:38:42.960,0:38:48.160
little bit more edgy with the show

0:38:45.040,0:38:49.280
and i think that’s when a lot of other

0:38:48.160,0:38:51.440
fans

0:38:49.280,0:38:53.119
kind of jumped on the bandwagon for the

0:38:51.440,0:38:55.359
show because

0:38:53.119,0:38:56.320
uh it was available you know on netflix

0:38:55.359,0:38:58.960
and you could go back in

0:38:56.320,0:39:00.480
and watch all of them so it was always a

0:38:58.960,0:39:03.920
favorite show of mine

0:39:00.480,0:39:06.079
um you know from the beginning uh so

0:39:03.920,0:39:07.839
i had remembered that this was supposed

0:39:06.079,0:39:10.720
to be their last

0:39:07.839,0:39:11.440
season so i was kind of sad with that

0:39:10.720,0:39:13.119
but then

0:39:11.440,0:39:15.599
hearing the news that they were no we’re

0:39:13.119,0:39:19.200
gonna come back and do one more

0:39:15.599,0:39:21.680
uh so that’s kind of cool so um

0:39:19.200,0:39:22.400
so the final season will actually just

0:39:21.680,0:39:25.520
be uh

0:39:22.400,0:39:26.000
ten episodes sometime i’m guessing you

0:39:25.520,0:39:28.720
know

0:39:26.000,0:39:29.359
next year at this point uh you know

0:39:28.720,0:39:31.680
because again

0:39:29.359,0:39:33.440
things are slowly starting to to ramp

0:39:31.680,0:39:35.760
back up you know with filming and

0:39:33.440,0:39:42.000
and whatnot so cool good pick thanks

0:39:35.760,0:39:44.800
again thank you

0:39:42.000,0:39:45.680
so my pick this week we’re on a trend

0:39:44.800,0:39:49.280
here is

0:39:45.680,0:39:52.560
once again not a documentary my pick is

0:39:49.280,0:39:55.520
uh after one episode of it

0:39:52.560,0:39:57.200
uh it’s the first one first marvel

0:39:55.520,0:39:58.640
cinematic universe tv show that i’m

0:39:57.200,0:39:59.040
picking after the first episode and

0:39:58.640,0:40:02.240
that’s

0:39:59.040,0:40:02.880
loki yeah that’s very unlike you it is i

0:40:02.240,0:40:05.119
know we

0:40:02.880,0:40:07.520
we still have the second one to watch uh

0:40:05.119,0:40:09.280
we’ll probably catch that tomorrow but

0:40:07.520,0:40:11.280
because we don’t watch it on wednesday

0:40:09.280,0:40:12.720
yes well they shouldn’t be dropping them

0:40:11.280,0:40:13.680
on fridays like they did all the other

0:40:12.720,0:40:16.400
ones

0:40:13.680,0:40:17.119
so set in the marvel cinematic universe

0:40:16.400,0:40:18.960
uh

0:40:17.119,0:40:20.720
the loki streaming series shares

0:40:18.960,0:40:21.920
continuity with the films of the

0:40:20.720,0:40:24.240
franchise

0:40:21.920,0:40:26.319
and takes place after the events of the

0:40:24.240,0:40:28.560
film avengers endgame

0:40:26.319,0:40:31.040
in which an alternate version of loki

0:40:28.560,0:40:33.760
created a new timeline

0:40:31.040,0:40:35.599
tom hiddleston reprises his role as loki

0:40:33.760,0:40:38.240
from the film series

0:40:35.599,0:40:40.720
loki premiered on june 9th and will

0:40:38.240,0:40:43.359
consist of six episodes

0:40:40.720,0:40:45.440
uh it is part of phase four of the

0:40:43.359,0:40:47.680
marvel cinematic universe and was

0:40:45.440,0:40:49.839
confirmed for a second season already

0:40:47.680,0:40:52.079
being in development

0:40:49.839,0:40:53.920
after stealing the tesseract during the

0:40:52.079,0:40:56.240
events of avengers end game an

0:40:53.920,0:40:57.760
alternate version of loki is brought to

0:40:56.240,0:41:00.319
the mysterious

0:40:57.760,0:41:03.040
time variance authority the tva not the

0:41:00.319,0:41:05.839
tennessee valley authority from

0:41:03.040,0:41:07.040
the depression times the time variance

0:41:05.839,0:41:09.760
authority

0:41:07.040,0:41:10.480
the tva is a bureaucratic organization

0:41:09.760,0:41:13.839
that exists

0:41:10.480,0:41:15.599
outside of time and space and monitors

0:41:13.839,0:41:18.319
the timeline

0:41:15.599,0:41:20.480
they give loki a choice face being

0:41:18.319,0:41:23.680
erased from existence

0:41:20.480,0:41:25.359
due to being a quote time variant or

0:41:23.680,0:41:29.280
help fix the timeline

0:41:25.359,0:41:32.640
and stop a greater threat loki ends up

0:41:29.280,0:41:34.640
trapped in his own crime thriller

0:41:32.640,0:41:36.480
traveling through time and altering

0:41:34.640,0:41:38.560
human history

0:41:36.480,0:41:40.400
so far we’ve only watched the the first

0:41:38.560,0:41:43.599
episode like i said

0:41:40.400,0:41:44.880
uh but it is the first series on disney

0:41:43.599,0:41:48.480
plus from the mcu

0:41:44.880,0:41:50.160
that i like after the first episode

0:41:48.480,0:41:52.160
you know it took me four episodes of

0:41:50.160,0:41:53.200
wanda vision before the show had any

0:41:52.160,0:41:55.440
appeal

0:41:53.200,0:41:57.920
and two before i really started to warm

0:41:55.440,0:42:00.240
up the falcon and winter soldier

0:41:57.920,0:42:02.480
um from my own perspective that’s a

0:42:00.240,0:42:04.240
promising start for this show i’m very

0:42:02.480,0:42:05.920
excited to see i’m saying it’s only six

0:42:04.240,0:42:07.680
episodes but i’m excited to see the rest

0:42:05.920,0:42:09.520
of them for the season

0:42:07.680,0:42:11.440
i’m sure that some of that appeal has to

0:42:09.520,0:42:13.119
be credited to hiddleston’s portrayal

0:42:11.440,0:42:16.319
i’ve always loved the character

0:42:13.119,0:42:18.000
in his hands and much to my surprise

0:42:16.319,0:42:20.079
part of the appeal is actually owen

0:42:18.000,0:42:22.400
wilson’s performance as well

0:42:20.079,0:42:24.560
i’ve never been a big fan of wilson’s he

0:42:22.400,0:42:27.280
seems one step above nicolas cage when

0:42:24.560,0:42:28.960
it comes to a one-dimensional portrayal

0:42:27.280,0:42:30.240
i often struggle to see wilson as

0:42:28.960,0:42:31.839
anything more than a clueless

0:42:30.240,0:42:33.680
pot-smoking surfer guy

0:42:31.839,0:42:35.119
injected into situations for comedic

0:42:33.680,0:42:37.920
relief

0:42:35.119,0:42:39.440
but in loki he’s demonstrating a depth

0:42:37.920,0:42:42.400
of character that utterly

0:42:39.440,0:42:44.000
shocks me he comes across as a grizzled

0:42:42.400,0:42:46.319
veteran detective

0:42:44.000,0:42:47.760
one might find in a classic noir mickey

0:42:46.319,0:42:50.480
spelling novel

0:42:47.760,0:42:53.280
but with a worldly knowledge that makes

0:42:50.480,0:42:57.359
the offhand observations he makes seemed

0:42:53.280,0:43:00.400
prophetic the show’s appeal

0:42:57.359,0:43:02.880
might be a the retro tech look that

0:43:00.400,0:43:04.480
gives it a fallout vegas feel that i can

0:43:02.880,0:43:05.599
wrap myself in like a comfortable

0:43:04.480,0:43:07.040
blanket

0:43:05.599,0:43:08.880
but in reality i’m sure it’s a

0:43:07.040,0:43:12.079
combination of all these things

0:43:08.880,0:43:14.640
and the classic mcu uh

0:43:12.079,0:43:15.280
comedy drama action vibe we all have

0:43:14.640,0:43:17.520
come to

0:43:15.280,0:43:18.800
to love it’s really it’s it’s almost

0:43:17.520,0:43:22.000
like the perfect blend of

0:43:18.800,0:43:23.680
everything yeah and and all the pieces

0:43:22.000,0:43:26.480
of it seem to be gelling together

0:43:23.680,0:43:26.880
after one episode which blows my mind

0:43:26.480,0:43:29.040
right

0:43:26.880,0:43:31.200
right um you know they go back and they

0:43:29.040,0:43:34.640
borrow in the first episode they borrow

0:43:31.200,0:43:36.880
footage from avengers end game

0:43:34.640,0:43:38.000
to show the scene where he picks up the

0:43:36.880,0:43:40.400
tesseract

0:43:38.000,0:43:42.720
but they’re thoughtful enough to

0:43:40.400,0:43:44.400
actually reshoot some of that so you can

0:43:42.720,0:43:47.119
see it from his perspective

0:43:44.400,0:43:47.680
too yeah so it gives you a whole new

0:43:47.119,0:43:50.800
twist

0:43:47.680,0:43:51.760
on how things happen there’s one scene

0:43:50.800,0:43:54.480
where

0:43:51.760,0:43:56.240
they kind of do a you know this is your

0:43:54.480,0:43:57.680
life segment and they walk him through

0:43:56.240,0:44:01.359
different parts of his life

0:43:57.680,0:44:04.720
right trying to prove the point of him

0:44:01.359,0:44:05.920
being this cruel sadistic mean person

0:44:04.720,0:44:09.040
who does things

0:44:05.920,0:44:11.280
with no good reason and once it’s

0:44:09.040,0:44:11.599
flaunted in his face you actually start

0:44:11.280,0:44:13.680
to

0:44:11.599,0:44:14.800
to feel sympathetic with the character

0:44:13.680,0:44:16.640
which

0:44:14.800,0:44:18.079
you’re not supposed to feel sympathetic

0:44:16.640,0:44:21.040
right with loki

0:44:18.079,0:44:22.560
um but hiddleston pulls it off great so

0:44:21.040,0:44:26.720
my pick this week

0:44:22.560,0:44:27.440
is loki on disney plus episode two just

0:44:26.720,0:44:28.880
dropped

0:44:27.440,0:44:33.119
three will be out on wednesday of next

0:44:28.880,0:44:33.119
week we’ll be right back with some

0:44:34.839,0:44:37.839
afterthoughts

0:44:37.920,0:44:43.599
so we have some return of normal yeah

0:44:41.280,0:44:44.800
yeah so let’s talk about that so first

0:44:43.599,0:44:47.920
off we had gone

0:44:44.800,0:44:51.599
over the summer we had gone to the mini

0:44:47.920,0:44:54.800
monster mania mall shopping experience

0:44:51.599,0:44:57.280
whatever it was so

0:44:54.800,0:44:58.319
the monster mania convention that was

0:44:57.280,0:45:01.920
supposed to be held

0:44:58.319,0:45:04.960
in may had actually gotten pushed to

0:45:01.920,0:45:07.839
august which is the one that

0:45:04.960,0:45:09.440
they do in cherry hill then their

0:45:07.839,0:45:12.240
september

0:45:09.440,0:45:14.000
uh convention they do in hunt valley

0:45:12.240,0:45:15.760
maryland which is a little bit north of

0:45:14.000,0:45:18.720
the baltimore area

0:45:15.760,0:45:19.440
and just announced today they’re going

0:45:18.720,0:45:22.720
to be doing

0:45:19.440,0:45:24.480
an october convention at the greater

0:45:22.720,0:45:27.359
philadelphia expo center

0:45:24.480,0:45:29.280
in oaks where they had done their little

0:45:27.359,0:45:31.680
shopping mall

0:45:29.280,0:45:33.680
convention so this was just posted on

0:45:31.680,0:45:36.880
their their website today

0:45:33.680,0:45:37.760
uh they basically said hey everybody

0:45:36.880,0:45:40.160
said

0:45:37.760,0:45:41.839
you should really do something at the

0:45:40.160,0:45:43.359
convention center

0:45:41.839,0:45:46.000
and they were like you know what we’re

0:45:43.359,0:45:48.319
gonna make this happen so it’s a nice

0:45:46.000,0:45:49.680
kind of halfway point for fans that go

0:45:48.319,0:45:53.680
to the maryland show

0:45:49.680,0:45:55.920
and fans that go to the cherry hill show

0:45:53.680,0:45:57.760
it’s going to be a totally different

0:45:55.920,0:45:58.480
venue for them because those other two

0:45:57.760,0:46:01.839
venues

0:45:58.480,0:46:03.599
are basically done at a hotel uh where

0:46:01.839,0:46:04.880
they kind of take over the hotel lobby

0:46:03.599,0:46:07.920
and some of the

0:46:04.880,0:46:08.720
uh conference rooms and and convention

0:46:07.920,0:46:11.839
areas

0:46:08.720,0:46:13.280
so here it’s gonna be i i think it’s

0:46:11.839,0:46:16.000
probably gonna be a

0:46:13.280,0:46:16.880
fantastic venue for them because they’ll

0:46:16.000,0:46:19.680
be able to

0:46:16.880,0:46:21.680
to fit a lot more people where people

0:46:19.680,0:46:22.000
won’t be on top of each other there’ll

0:46:21.680,0:46:24.160
be

0:46:22.000,0:46:25.599
you know more spacing out and you know

0:46:24.160,0:46:28.720
we’ve gone to oaks for

0:46:25.599,0:46:29.280
various different things the parking you

0:46:28.720,0:46:31.280
know

0:46:29.280,0:46:33.839
it’s just always a plastic venue it’s

0:46:31.280,0:46:37.119
such yeah it’s such a user center

0:46:33.839,0:46:40.319
or you know a shop or a fan centric

0:46:37.119,0:46:43.040
venue right it’s easy to get to you know

0:46:40.319,0:46:45.839
there’s places to eat afterwards

0:46:43.040,0:46:47.839
uh you know it’s not for us you know

0:46:45.839,0:46:48.880
being in south jersey it’s not that bad

0:46:47.839,0:46:51.280
of a drive

0:46:48.880,0:46:53.119
for us for anybody that’s in philly or

0:46:51.280,0:46:55.599
you know other areas it’s

0:46:53.119,0:46:57.200
pretty easy to get to so getting in and

0:46:55.599,0:46:59.040
getting out because they’ve got

0:46:57.200,0:47:01.040
four main halls in there that can be

0:46:59.040,0:47:03.200
combined and reconfigured right

0:47:01.040,0:47:05.040
and getting in and out of there is so

0:47:03.200,0:47:07.599
easy they’re so set up they’ve got

0:47:05.040,0:47:09.920
multiple entrances on major arteries

0:47:07.599,0:47:11.680
yeah it’s just it’s and everything that

0:47:09.920,0:47:12.319
we’ve ever gone to there has been run so

0:47:11.680,0:47:14.160
smoothly

0:47:12.319,0:47:16.400
yeah we’ve never gone to anything there

0:47:14.160,0:47:18.079
that we had an issue with it

0:47:16.400,0:47:19.680
one of my favorite expo centers right

0:47:18.079,0:47:22.000
and even when we went

0:47:19.680,0:47:23.040
to the shopping mall where we were like

0:47:22.000,0:47:24.800
how is this gonna work

0:47:23.040,0:47:26.240
is it going to be in a parking lot and

0:47:24.800,0:47:28.480
we were like wow

0:47:26.240,0:47:29.920
this was perfect for them they had a

0:47:28.480,0:47:31.760
specific area

0:47:29.920,0:47:33.119
right outdoor right which was done

0:47:31.760,0:47:34.400
perfect right across the street for the

0:47:33.119,0:47:36.640
parking lot yeah it was

0:47:34.400,0:47:38.319
it was totally you know the and as we

0:47:36.640,0:47:38.800
had mentioned when we had talked about

0:47:38.319,0:47:42.240
it

0:47:38.800,0:47:42.559
really the only negative thing we had to

0:47:42.240,0:47:44.800
say

0:47:42.559,0:47:45.920
is that there could have been something

0:47:44.800,0:47:48.480
for more shade

0:47:45.920,0:47:50.000
right because nobody knew at that time

0:47:48.480,0:47:54.559
nobody knew it was gonna be

0:47:50.000,0:47:56.960
95 degrees right exactly like if you had

0:47:54.559,0:47:58.400
to do that like in the middle of july

0:47:56.960,0:48:00.160
right i still didn’t have

0:47:58.400,0:48:01.839
any kind of protection right then i

0:48:00.160,0:48:03.119
could fault you for right but and that’s

0:48:01.839,0:48:06.000
the thing is other than that

0:48:03.119,0:48:06.720
it ran smoothly you know everything was

0:48:06.000,0:48:09.119
perfect so

0:48:06.720,0:48:10.400
i’m kind of looking for you know like as

0:48:09.119,0:48:13.040
as we were talking

0:48:10.400,0:48:14.960
even though the cherry hill location is

0:48:13.040,0:48:16.960
much closer for us we don’t have to

0:48:14.960,0:48:20.160
pay to go over the bridge or whatever i

0:48:16.960,0:48:22.559
would be more inclined to actually

0:48:20.160,0:48:23.680
drive a little bit further and go to

0:48:22.559,0:48:27.040
oaks

0:48:23.680,0:48:30.000
because you know the

0:48:27.040,0:48:31.760
the cherry hill experience parking is

0:48:30.000,0:48:32.240
always a pain in the butt it’s always

0:48:31.760,0:48:35.359
very

0:48:32.240,0:48:35.839
crowded yeah it’s nice but it’s just

0:48:35.359,0:48:37.599
right

0:48:35.839,0:48:40.079
packed in there it’s just right it’s not

0:48:37.599,0:48:41.680
set up and maybe in the early days when

0:48:40.079,0:48:44.079
the show wasn’t right i think it worked

0:48:41.680,0:48:44.880
out well and now they’ve got it they’ve

0:48:44.079,0:48:48.000
gotten to

0:48:44.880,0:48:50.960
work there so i’m kind of excited to be

0:48:48.000,0:48:52.800
able to go and it’s close to our our

0:48:50.960,0:48:55.359
wedding anniversary so

0:48:52.800,0:48:57.359
you know maybe it’ll be a cool hey

0:48:55.359,0:48:59.520
wedding present

0:48:57.359,0:49:00.800
um the ticket prices were basically the

0:48:59.520,0:49:04.000
same as

0:49:00.800,0:49:06.480
uh their other conventions uh 25 for

0:49:04.000,0:49:08.640
saturday i believe it was 30. you’re

0:49:06.480,0:49:09.839
pre-coveted pricing your pre-covered

0:49:08.640,0:49:12.480
pricing uh

0:49:09.839,0:49:13.599
guests haven’t been announced yet but as

0:49:12.480,0:49:15.119
they do

0:49:13.599,0:49:16.319
yeah that you know they’re going to have

0:49:15.119,0:49:17.760
and there’s going to be some themed

0:49:16.319,0:49:19.839
reunion because they do it

0:49:17.760,0:49:21.760
yeah there’s always some sort of themed

0:49:19.839,0:49:23.359
reunion where they get you know three or

0:49:21.760,0:49:26.400
four stars from from some

0:49:23.359,0:49:29.680
80s or 70s horror movie uh

0:49:26.400,0:49:33.119
all together um so very cool

0:49:29.680,0:49:35.920
they even had um blocks of

0:49:33.119,0:49:37.119
hotels available for people that aren’t

0:49:35.920,0:49:39.440
from the area

0:49:37.119,0:49:41.599
uh who are driving a bit uh so if you go

0:49:39.440,0:49:44.079
to monstermania.com

0:49:41.599,0:49:44.880
all the information is there uh even

0:49:44.079,0:49:46.960
vendors

0:49:44.880,0:49:48.960
they’re looking for vendors so if you

0:49:46.960,0:49:49.599
happen to be somebody who who’s a vendor

0:49:48.960,0:49:51.520
who

0:49:49.599,0:49:53.040
cherry hill’s a little bit too far for

0:49:51.520,0:49:55.839
you but

0:49:53.040,0:49:56.880
oaks isn’t as bad you know here’s a

0:49:55.839,0:49:58.319
great opportunity

0:49:56.880,0:50:00.240
and i think that’s what’s also going to

0:49:58.319,0:50:01.200
kind of be cool because when we went to

0:50:00.240,0:50:02.559
the shopping thing

0:50:01.200,0:50:04.800
there were different vendors that we

0:50:02.559,0:50:08.000
haven’t seen before a lot more vendors

0:50:04.800,0:50:10.079
where when we’ve gone to monster mania

0:50:08.000,0:50:11.359
back to back years it’s a lot of the

0:50:10.079,0:50:13.599
same vendors which

0:50:11.359,0:50:15.839
it’s well i think part of the problem is

0:50:13.599,0:50:17.520
is because it’s so cramped you don’t

0:50:15.839,0:50:19.280
see all the right you don’t get to see

0:50:17.520,0:50:21.040
everybody because you’re just trying to

0:50:19.280,0:50:22.400
get through you know so i think this

0:50:21.040,0:50:23.680
will be a great opportunity because

0:50:22.400,0:50:26.720
again you’re going to get

0:50:23.680,0:50:27.359
all these different vendors who aren’t

0:50:26.720,0:50:30.559
from

0:50:27.359,0:50:32.000
you know either of the local areas to

0:50:30.559,0:50:34.240
browse because a lot of times at

0:50:32.000,0:50:36.160
cherry hill there’s so many people there

0:50:34.240,0:50:37.920
that you don’t you can’t really stop and

0:50:36.160,0:50:39.359
and look through a table right there’s

0:50:37.920,0:50:40.800
so many people trying right because if

0:50:39.359,0:50:41.599
there’s already so many people looking

0:50:40.800,0:50:44.079
at a table

0:50:41.599,0:50:45.920
right you can’t so very happy that

0:50:44.079,0:50:48.000
they’re that they’re doing this so

0:50:45.920,0:50:49.599
so we have one more though yeah so we

0:50:48.000,0:50:52.720
have one more and this one

0:52:34.240,0:52:39.040
what happened well obviously last year

0:52:37.280,0:52:40.800
and the year before that we had just

0:52:39.040,0:52:44.160
actually going to disney that year

0:52:40.800,0:52:46.000
oh okay i i remember there was something

0:52:44.160,0:52:47.760
where scheduled because that was our

0:52:46.000,0:52:49.280
disney vacation okay

0:52:47.760,0:52:51.359
okay so this will be kind of cool

0:52:49.280,0:52:52.960
because we don’t have anything

0:52:51.359,0:52:54.400
planned and it’s it’s a great one

0:52:52.960,0:52:56.800
because it’s off season you know

0:52:54.400,0:52:57.680
right exactly you’ve had you haven’t had

0:52:56.800,0:52:59.359
a comic-con

0:52:57.680,0:53:00.640
or convention for probably two or three

0:52:59.359,0:53:02.640
months right so you’re kind of itching

0:53:00.640,0:53:03.440
for something it’s also right before the

0:53:02.640,0:53:06.319
holiday

0:53:03.440,0:53:07.760
so maybe there’s an opportunity to find

0:53:06.319,0:53:09.359
and i have it on some holiday

0:53:07.760,0:53:11.040
presents that if you want to go down and

0:53:09.359,0:53:12.880
stay overnight there

0:53:11.040,0:53:14.640
are plenty of rooms and the rates are

0:53:12.880,0:53:17.280
great that time i was going to say

0:53:14.640,0:53:19.200
because you know and and it’ll be kind

0:53:17.280,0:53:19.520
of interesting to see what ocean city is

0:53:19.200,0:53:22.240
like

0:53:19.520,0:53:23.839
and ocean city does not shut ocean city

0:53:22.240,0:53:24.240
is very similar to those jersey shores

0:53:23.839,0:53:26.079
they don’t

0:53:24.240,0:53:27.520
shut down in the off season entirely

0:53:26.079,0:53:28.880
like they used to okay

0:53:27.520,0:53:30.400
there’s plenty of restaurants there’s

0:53:28.880,0:53:31.680
still some things that are venues that

0:53:30.400,0:53:33.599
are open down there so

0:53:31.680,0:53:35.040
okay they’re really and this is one of

0:53:33.599,0:53:36.720
the things that they’re trying to do

0:53:35.040,0:53:39.040
they’re really trying to keep

0:53:36.720,0:53:41.200
that year-round attraction so that’s

0:53:39.040,0:53:43.040
probably why they do it yep

0:53:41.200,0:53:44.640
this time of year because they get great

0:53:43.040,0:53:46.960
rates on the menu as well

0:53:44.640,0:53:48.000
yeah so so yes we are definitely looking
