A Star Wars outfit from me?! An avowed Trekkie?!?! Look, here’s the thing: when it comes to immersive theme, I am highly suggestible. For example, I am probably the only millennial alive today who thinks Harry Potter is, like, fine or whatever. Yes, I read all the books, and I can still take him or leave him. Yet I...Continue reading
Ron Howard Goes To The Haunted Mansion
Happy Halloween week, kids! I can think of no better way to celebrate than by going to the Haunted Mansion. If you’re in the parks right now, you’re obligated. If you’re not? Never fear; I have you covered! Sure, we could watch a few on-ride videos, or even dig up some archival material. But since we’re all groovy dudes,...Continue reading
Under Armour Sportsmask Review Part 2: Original VS. Featherweight
I have good news and bad news, guys. Bad news first: I lost my Under Armour Sportsmask. The good news is that this gives me the perfect opportunity to review the next generation model, the Sportsmask Featherweight. Extra good news: Pat wound up getting his own, 1.0 Sportsmask, which means I still have the OG version to compare it...Continue reading
Well Done, Sister Suffragette!
It has recently come to my attention that that seminal piece of Disney musical history, the brilliant “Sister Suffragette” brought so beautifully to life by Glynis Johns as Mrs. Banks, is omitted from the Broadway version of Mary Poppins. This is a TRAVESTY and I will tell you why. But first, should we just watch it real quick? Let’s...Continue reading
Running In Isabela, Puerto Rico

The question is: are you a big enough running nerd to geek out with me? Let’s find out! Pat and I went to Jobos Beach in Isabela, PR over the long...Continue reading
21 Thoughts I Had While Watching Muppets Haunted Mansion
Normally my Thoughts While Watching posts revolve around vintage park media, like the Disneyland opening day TV broadcast or, most recently, the 1993 WDW vacation planning video. Muppets Haunted Mansion, by contrast, just came out last week, but I think it’ll still work for the brief: normally we are viewing the Disney parks through the lens of the past,...Continue reading
101 Dalmatians, One Dalmatian Disneybound
After dipping my toes into my first proper Disneybound a few months ago, I’m back with an all-new 101 Dalmatians-inspired outfit! Guys, 101 Dalmatians was my JAM when I was a little kid. It came out over two decades before I was born, but I didn’t care. Ariel and Belle were great and all, but they couldn’t compete with...Continue reading
Half A Race Schedule Is Better Than No Race Schedule At All, Right?
We still live in uncertain times, but I’m feeling hopeful enough to wedge a race schedule in there anyway. Well, half a race schedule. Not ENOUGH races, but some. Not the WHOLE year, but part. And yeah, sure, most are retreads of runDisney races, but I’m registered! That’s what counts! And so I am officially looking forward to: The...Continue reading
Is A Sparkle Athletic Sparkle Squad Membership Worth It?
I’m decidedly NOT a team sports person, but I’m not against joining a team of running individuals, especially if they offer discounts. Did I join Sparkle Squad for the camaraderie or the discounts? Trick question! I joined it for the visor! And the blog post, of course. Anything for a blog post. WHAT IS SPARKLE SQUAD? Right, so, Sparkle...Continue reading
