    Anyone see NBC's Elvis anniversary special to his '68 comeback show?

    I wondered what you all thought of Sunday night's NBC special commemorating the 50th anniversary of the ‘68 comeback special. I liked most of what they did. I thought recreating the setting of the boxing ring approach worked really well. I also liked most of the performances. They have...

    Does anyone else miss SpectroMagic -- especially the theme music at night in the MK?

    I still like the SpectroMagic music -- and although it has not been heard in the MK for years; I can still hear imagine it from time to time, and my mind immediately brings back the thoughts and smells of a warm summer night at the park. (And then of, course, it gets caught in the infinite loop...

    Life Magazine special edition, Mickey Mouse at 90, is fantastic! Well researched and worth buying.

    In contrast to the ABC TV special that seems will be about anything Disney with a little Mickey thrown in, the new Life Magazine special edition that is now on magazine stands is absolutely worth the investment -- and I say this from the perspective of a lifelong Disney fan that knows when it is...

    What is the best option to replace Windows Moviemaker when going to Windows 10?

    I trust the community here to help with this one, and I would like your input. Windows 7 came with Windows Moviemaker, and I used it extensively over the years to make simple videos for church and other purposes. (Mostly good slideshows for events, but sometimes for promos.) I am now on...

    Haunted Mansion theme on World Series organ tonight

    Of course since it is Halloween, it is natural for the organist at the ball park to play some spooky tunes tonight between hits, and he played the opening to the Haunted Mansion theme a little while ago. It was spot on, and very fun to here. I was wanting to hear Paul Frees start to talk...

    "Because I said so...".

    Every so often I come to say, "Oh, me," with a sigh and I can literally hear my father in my voice. Same tone, same key range even. When I notice it, it is actually kind of nice and makes me smile on the inside. He passed away in 2005. So, in a related idea, I thought I would make a thread...

    Voting lines, experiences

    Well, I have my "I voted" sticker! I voted this morning before work. I got there around 5:45, and was done by 6:20. (Polls opened at 6 a.m. here in Virginia.) It was a little longer line than I had expected, given the history at my precinct. So, at least where I was it was a heavy turnout...

    I know we covered Matthew's effect on WDW thoroughly here, but many, many people are now affected by flooding throughout the South and Mid-Atlantic states. I think especially it has hit North Carolina in a way few really anticipated. Many towns, even along 95, are completely flooded. I just...
