      I have been a lurker for a very long time around here, and I had no clue that you were the Martin of Martin's Videos until I visited your profile just now. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed your work. I feel like most of what I remember about Disney attractions from the 80s and 90s are flashes reinforced by your wonderful documentation. Thank you again.

      I loved your tribute video to Epcot and Communicore called "Spaceship Earth 86 and Communicore". I have a question about the last song heard in the video. It starts at mark 58:09 do you know where you got that song from and whats it called?
      1. marni1971
        That is part of the full version of We've Just Begun to Dream, the original "theme song" of EPCOT Center. It's a rare recording that includes the two verses as opposed to just the chorus as usually heard at the original rope drop and the like. I'm pretty sure
        I uploaded the whole song to Mousebits.

      Hi Martin! Just finished watching your tributes to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Timekeeper, and the Carousel of Progress. As always, amazing job! One question: would you ever consider doing an ultimate tribute for the WEDway PeopleMover/Tomorrowland Transit Authority? Thanks for everything!

      Martin, are you and Michelle already over for your holiday ? I seem to remember you saying you might be over early this year. Sorry I'll miss bumping into you. Have a great time. Steve

      My family and I just watched the 20K Leagues Tribute. Your attention to detail was impeccable; a true masterpiece and a labor of dedicated love. The behind-the-scenes footage included in the video it was the best part.

      I don't I'm afraid. It's out of my hands. Soon I hope!

      Did you see the Mouseplanet article about the possibility of a ride just to get to the Star Wars Land which would be exactly where you are talking about? I love his ideas about have a dark side and a good side with attractions on both. It was done by Todd King and was a 3 part series.

      Interesting thank you. It has to be regional. Somewhere.

      Hey Martin,

      A bit of an update. I just noticed today when I try to play a YouTube video of yours (on iOS) through a US VPN - making it appear as though I'm requesting the video from the U.S. - everything works fine.

      Perhaps there are regional settings preventing Canadians from watching the videos on mobile? As soon as I turn off the VPN I get the error message preventing playback again.
    20. marni1971
      Therre seems to be a problem now and then. I've had the settings checked and nothing is set so they won't play. Sorry!
