TDC#194 Those Old Cats!

i’m pointing my nose at you

So, I didn’t think we were going to do an April Fool’s show…. and then I listened to this weeks show – it’s a discussion of progressive lenses and their minute link to Disney. Oh, and lots of Mars related audio. Go figure….

Also, we need to start planning the extravaganza that will be our next book club discussion show – want to join us?

I forgot to also add that the ride audio heard in this show is from:

TDC# 111 Parisian Pirates En Parade!

Another journey this week into some park audio – this time, Disneyland Paris and POTC! We’ll hear park BRM for POTC (heh- love those abbreviations!!), then a musical ride through of the Parisian POTC followed by the actual ride through, en francais. My step-dad’s (god rest his soul) FAVORITE Randy Newman song brings it all home. Enjoy!!

say "ARGGGG!!!"

TDC# 110 TDL and “Europe in the Air”

This weeks show includes audio from the Tokyo Disneyland productions Fiesta Tropical and Sebastian’s Caribbean Carnival! Next is a ride through and review of Williamsburg, Virginia’s own Busch Gardens’ newest ride, “Europe in the Air”.

TDC#104 The Happiest Place on Earth

This weeks show brings an hour of scintillating park audio and trip report from the recent Westfest trip. You can also check out both the Skurvy Monkey’s and the Disney Dude’s recent episode for more trip report goodness! We’re saving back specific Club 33 details for a future show!

TDC#69 Talking to Rich

Wrapping up a few shows recorded while Cat #1 was traveling Paris is show #69:

  • Rich O. aka WDWOwner from twitter joins Cat#2 in the Meow Mix and shares his family’s story about Disney, Dialysis and Donations – here’s Rich and the fam in the 3 o’clock parade. I would also like to say now that I apologize to Mr. O for the somewhat cheesy interview background music! It’s music from the Canada pavillion and just end up being somewhat “soft and warm the quiet storm” easy listening jazz….. sigh… :)

TDC#45 (2.0) What Ride Best Describes YOU?

 
 
Cat #2 discovered a little audio glitch or two in this week’s episode after posting…. apologies to all – I’m reposting – consider reloading?
 
A Pirates Life for Me?
A Pirates Life for Me?

This week starts off with a BANG as the fabulous Jeff Wasowski

Desperately Seeking Figment?

Desperately Seeking Figment?

has treated the Cats to a little musical musing in the form of “Sweet Veterinarians” (apologies to Tim Curry - NOT Neil Diamond as I originally feared).

Then we’ve got more MegaMouseMeet Madness, as Lovely Sheila starts off this weeks round of questions with a whole bunch of MouseFesters! We also hear from Alice falling down down down the rabbit hole, and finish off with a song from Yehaa Bob himself!

 

 

And is Cat #2 the only one whose mind goes here when Jennifer mentions Francis the Ladybug?

TDCs #29 So Darn Thankful!

traceturkey1

In addition to those some of those everyday, mundane things many of us are thankful for, like oh, I don’t know, stem cell research, friendship, reasonably good health, pets and a roof over our heads, the Cats are also thankful for REALLY important things like:

  • Let’s get small with Miracles from Molecules!
  • Family – from the Whatchamacallit to Cousin Betsy (and others whose names have been changed to protect the innocent), they remind us of from whence we come and show us that Disney truly is “a family problem”…
  • Cous Cous!
  • zkj you know who!
  • Michael Eisner
  • The auditory stylings of one Jeff W.
  • Theming!
  • MouseFest 2008!
  • Satchmo!

On a serious note, We hope this holiday holds some good times for you and yours.

TDC#24 Breakdown!

NOTE: Upon listening to the posted version, mine was missing about 2 minutes off the end of the podcast. I am reposting now, so if you experience techincal difficulties, try down loading again! Sorry!!

 

Here, kitty kitty kitty!!  This week, Geoff Carter from Your Souvenir Guide (who has apparently snuck of to Disneyland as we speak) rejoins the Cats in an impromptu discussion of park attraction breakdowns. Seems like, between Pirates, HM and the People Mover, we’ve done more than our share of time waiting for a reboot…

After our discussion, check out some park audio featuring the Watchamacallit, Space Mountain with the lights on, cranky spirits and a safari ride from last years MouseFest! Listen closely and you may hear some of the Disney Podcasting/Meet Elite hooting and hollering (no blindfolds were used in the making of this audio).

 In the spirit of breakdowns, Trace of Texas sent the Cats this photo (above) showing DL’s TOT haunted hallway with the lights on. This is taken from the ride vehicle looking out into that hallway that fades from waving haunted characters to twinkly lights of the twilight zone before sucking you up again for a perilous ride! Apparently, the riders were herded off the elevator car by ramp (after being admonished not to take any MORE photographs, thank you very much) but had to watch their steps as apparently the surface of the rug and floor you see are all embedded with fragile fiber optic lights! Oooooh neato!

Have you been stuck on a ride or attraction? Got any interesting photographic evidence? Write us and tell us about it! Likewise, if you want to contribute to “Poetry Corner” – send in your original verses! As always, send suggestions feedback to us at: podcast@thosedarncats.net .
