With special appearances by Wall-E, Abby, and Negaverse Ozy.
While my original plans for this weekend were to fly to California to visit my cousin with my parents, and Disneyland with Thunderclap 8 and Hitshermark, I still managed to have a fun and Disney-focused weekend anyway.
On Saturday afternoon, Abby and I made a two hour trek up to High Point NC to see Disney/Pixar's latest masterpiece, Wall-E with a group of Disney fan bloggers and podcasters.
The trip was organized by George "Biblioadonis" from Imaginerding
. Also in attendance were Ryan from Main Street Gazette
, and negaverse Ozy, Jeff Pepper from 2719 Hyperion
Why negaverse Ozy? Well, he's named Jeff, he's kinda short, bald and a self-described curmudgeon (giving the phenomenal Indiana Jones attraction at Disneyland a passing "Its decent enough"). The only difference is his obvious love for Disney. Very very strange.
After the movie, we got dinner and geeked out about Disney. Relating stories, sharing bits of trivia, gossiping about other bloggers. It was a bit like meeting the Beekeepers for the first time. :) Luckily they were kind enough to pause for me to explain arcane Dis-nerd terminology to Abby so she wasn't COMPLETELY lost.
As for the film itself- BRILLIANT. Loved every single second of it. Cannot wait for the DVD. Also the Tex Avery meets Portal short subject "Presto" is a real delight. Anyone else see it? Discuss below!
