Disney Imagineering

I went to this tech-talk thing today and was pleasantly surprised by some of the cool things the engineers at Disney do at the park. Did you know that they have trackless rides that randomly generate paths for each run, in real-time?

They’ve got these things up at the park in Tokyo. The first of its kind state-side is opening up soon in Cars Land as Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters.

Gonna have to watch the movies and finally go to California Adventures.


The Revenant was a good movie. It kept me entertained the whole way through, but is something that I will probably never watch again. Actually, I think I have to. I effectively watched it through grating. The last row at Pacific Theatres at the Grove is conveniently blocked by the railing.

Leo did a pretty decent job doing his thing I guess. I have no idea what it really means to be a good actor, but I’m pretty sure Tom Hardy did a better job playing the bad man Fitzgerald.

The lasting impression that the movie gave me was that I should visit some more national parks.
