echoes of elsewhere
So, here it is, the first week of Elsewhere version two [point] three, and I still haven't
updated with something approaching content. Trust me, I will soon enough.... But to tide
you over, feel free to peruse the echoes, ghosts, imprints, whatnot, of the previous 2
major versions of elsewhere (well, I incremented to 2.1 and, looking back, it was still 2.0).
Well, if you're so inclined, take a gander at:
Some of the links on those pages will work. But I wouldn't recommend it.
a california adventure
Just yesterday, I had occasion to go to the Disney's California Adventure park for a few short
hours. The hows and whys of the evening may be elucidated at a later date, but if you know those,
I had quite a good time. The park is visually a very good, very Disney experience, and over
the long term, I hold out a considerable amount of optimism for how it will eventually turn out.
For now, though, I feel as though (missing the big water ride and the roller coaster) a solid
4 hours is about all it takes to get a full sense of what the park is about, and see all the
best things.... If you have occasion to go, or can get in at a steep discount, the "Soaring Over
California" ride (a mild motion-simulator in front of an IMAX screen) is absolutely breathtaking.
I can see that ride itself having $10 tickets if it were a standalone attraction. You know, it
would be well worth it.
