Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom

16 Apr

This isn’t exactly breaking news as I’ve been reading about it on other blogs for a while during testing, but Magic Kingdom has added a new interactive game. It is similar to the game found at EPCOT’s Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure (soon to be re-themed as Agent P from Phineas and Ferb. It is called Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and it has some key differences to the Kim Possible version. I’m not going to try to explain the game in depth or give away any spoilers, I’m just going to give some basics and my immediate reaction having played it a bit.

First thing you do if you want to play is go to one of the Sorcerers Recruitment Center. The main one is in the Firehouse on Main Street. Another is in Fantasyland (but I haven’t been there yet). You will see a short video giving you an overview of the story, receive your first set of cards and then get a quick instruction on how to play.

The Starter Kit.

Chick-Fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich

2 Jun

This week Chick-Fil-A has been doing a special preview of their upcoming Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Fans (or should we call them “likes” now?) on Facebook were encouraged to sign up for special reservation slots at their local Chick-Fil-A’s to check out the new sandwich that officially launches on June 7th.

I, of course, signed up JC and I for the Altamonte drive-thru Chick-Fil-A. Yes, if you haven’t been there it is a Chick-Fil-A set up with double drive-thru’s and no dining area. Looks just like a Checkers (or Rally’s depending on where you live).

Mountain Dew New Flavors

25 Apr

Actually, I guess I’m wrong. Ever since Pepsi “re-branded” themselves it is actually “MTN DEW” not “Mountain Dew. I’m sorry to have horribly misled you by the title of this blog.

This blog is about Mountain MTN DEW’s new promotion about having the American public pick their newest flavor. You may remember I wrote about this back when it was still “Mountain Dew” in 2008. I know many people remember this because it is getting me LOTS of hits with people trying to find information about THIS years competitors. So here they are:

So there we have them. White Out, Typhoon and Distortion!

I being a loyal blogger tried all three once again. I’ll try to give a short description of each:

“Weird Al” Yankovic – Skipper Dan

15 Jul

This is the next new song from Al’s “Internet Leaks” and it hit iTunes and YouTube yesterday. SO GO BUY IT!

This song makes me laugh on SOO many levels. It has Disney and Jungle Cruise jokes and I love me the Jungle Cruise. “Here is the backside of water!” I also have many friends who kill themselves night and day in community theater secretly hoping that they get a phone call…I know it.

GOAT is doing Reservoir Dogs currently, so when that popped up on the video I almost died.

Here it is: LINK (I hate YouTube sometimes)

Formula 1 2009!

21 Feb

I am a pretty big sports fan. My favorite sport is football, GO DOLPHINS! But I also enjoy racing a lot. My dad’s watching of NASCAR got me hooked and we have gone to multiple races in Daytona and one in Atlanta.

As you know NASCAR races are normally on ovals and go around in circles. While I don’t find this boring, I know many people do. I enjoy road courses even more, but NASCAR’s Sprint Cup only visits two road courses a year.

Formula 1 is ALL road courses! This makes up for the fact that 99% of the races are shown in the US between 3 and 5 in the morning (thank God for DVR’s). This past off-season has seen some of the largest rule changes in the history of F1. More changes are coming for 2010 due to the economy’s impact on racing. F1 is expensive and requires huge budget sponsors in order for a team to compete.

Explaining these changes to even a seasoned fan is difficult, not to mention explaining it to people who don’t watch any racing, like many of my readers. However, I found this awesome video from Red Bull Racing not to be confused with their sister team Scuderia Toro Rosso (Team Red Bull in Italian). This video shows off their new car and uses some great animation to show the changes from last year to this year. Check it out!
