I tried to do handstands for you (Bruises by Chairlift)

This song rules my universe at the moment.

There is something very Sophie B. Hawkins and Lost in Translation with an indie-rock twist about this that is ... completely mesmerizing ...

Disneyland: the happiest place on Earth ... and Corsuscant ... and Caprica

Just got back from Disneyland with the kids. Wow. Still a magical place, just as I remember it from my last trip 20 years ago when I was in 5th grade. It is still very much the same, but run so much more effeciently with the fast passes and rider switch cards. Very family friendly. I know my daughter will remember it forever, I know I will.

One tip: if you have to eat outside of the park, avoid a joint called "Captain Kidd's," it looks good, but is a total dive. It is a buffet that even a public school cafeteria would be ashamed of.
