Back from Pleasure Island

This evening (Tuesday evening, 9/23) I went to Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World. Every time I come here, I always make a visit to the Comedy Warehouse there at least one night per trip. It's always a fun time there- it's spontaneous, it's improv, it's....closing? Yes, the Comedy Warehouse, along with the Adventurer's Club and the dance clubs, including Mannequins and 8 Trax, are closing down after this coming Saturday. According to Pleasure Island Cast Members, they were told that those venues will be replaced by shops and restaurants. Oh, well...everything must come to an end...It's not a bad thing, really. It's just time....Those of us who supported the Comedy Warehouse and the Adventurer's Club, along with the other clubs, will always have the memories of the fun times that we had there. Pleasure Island over the last couple of years certainly has not been as busy as it used to be in past years, and now with competition like Citywalk at Universal Studios, Disney has got to make some changes to keep competitive, and to make it interesting.

Still, the Comedy Warehouse has some really talented folks who work there, and like I was telling Comedy Warehouse Cast Member Mary this evening, I could definitely see any of those folks moving to Los Angeles or New York and making a living in films and television. It's a scary thing when you've had a steady job at Disney for years, but heck...It's worth a shot, right? I mean, they're already actors...I can envision Mary, for example, guesting on shows like Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty or Samantha Who...

Anyway, I'm tired now...It's like 3:44AM here in Florida right now, and it's time for me to go to bed. I enjoyed myself tonight, but here at Disney's Old Key West Resort, my bed is calling me. Good night!

Barack Obama and the Lipstick on a Pig

Barack Obama has recently been explaining himself over his recent non-original "lipstick on a pig" speech a few days ago. You know, the one that the McCain campaign claims that Obama was calling Sarah Palin a pig. Boy, I've got to give it to the Republicans. That was a good move on their part, for one good reason: there are a lot of stupid people out there, and only they would really believe that that's what Obama meant.

Obama's big mistake is in his repeated trying to explain what he meant. If Obama wants to come across as strong, this is what he should do: "Everybody. I'm going to say this only once, and then I'm never going to talk about it again, so listen up: I did not call Sarah Palin a pig. The McCain camp is telling you that I did. Go on You Tube and watch the full speech that I gave if you don't believe me. If you are an idiot, you will believe what the Repulicans tell you to believe, and you'll vote for McCain. Thank you". That would be a manly response, don't you think?

Howard Dean a few years back couldn't recover when he yelled, "Yeee Haw!" and his opponent, John Kerry, called him a "loose cannon". If Mr. Dean had played it cool, held a press conference and said, "look at the tape. I was just having a good time. I'm not crazy, and I'm not a loose cannon, and I will not ever talk to the press about this again", then he would probably have been the Democratic nominee against George Bush. But no, he kept on stumbling and trying to explain himself. Obama, you are coming across as stuffy lately. Man up!!!!!

Want To Laugh? Check Out Beverly Hills Chihuahua!

You have got to check out the trailer for the new Disney movie that's coming out Sept. 26, "Beverly Hills Chihuahua". The theme song is really catchy. It looks like a crazy movie, though. I will go see it.
