Derelict Disney

29 Dec

My adoration of derelict places is no secret, remember Mr Blobby land for example?.. Of course when I discovered these pictures of a derelict Disney site I just had to post them. Am determined to do more exploration in 2012, there is an old convent near Bromley I have my eye on for starters ;-)

River Country was Walt Disney World’s first waterpark. It opened in 1976, and closed for the final time in 2001. Since 2001, the area has sat virtually undisturbed. The slides and pools remain in place.









Awwwccupy Wall Street – today’s MUST see!

16 Dec

This is the best Tumblr ever. Awwccupy Wall Street features the #occupy movements cutest protestors. Mainly dogs but some babies & cats in there too. If you are going to waste your time on one website today it needs to be this one. The fact the cops, sorry police force, frisked a dog dressed as a Hells Angel (seriously) is going to make me smile for weeks to come. The ‘kiss my red setter arse’ and ‘biscuits not bombs’ are amongst my favourites too :-)

How To Shrink A Head

15 Dec

Utterly random brilliance over at Nerdcore – ever wanted to know how human heads are shrunk then read on >>

 

THERE’S A REASON hunters’ trophies tend to end at the neck. A head is more practical than a body. It’s easier to transport, it’s less time-consuming to prepare, and it confers the same bragging rights. Today, I count 29 heads—most taxidermied, some ­shrunken—on display in the Adventurers Club’s spacious old headquarters in downtown ­Chicago. Plus four attached to torsos: mine, David Brown’s, club honcho Howard Rosen’s, and that of Struve’s shrunken boy.

“Capt. Kirk” Wakes Discovery Crew

8 Mar

This gave me goosebumps – nothing else I can really add.

William Shatner, the actor who played Captain James T. Kirk on the original Star Trek television series, provided a special message to the crew of space shuttle Discovery during the 3:23 a.m. EST wakeup call on Mon., Mar. 7. As Alexander Courage’s “Star Trek” theme song played underneath, Shatner replaced the original television introduction with, “Space, the final frontier. These have been the voyages of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Her 30 year mission: To seek out new science. To build new outposts. To bring nations together on the final frontier. To boldly go, and do, what no spacecraft has done before.” The “Theme from Star Trek” received the second most votes in a public contest from a Top 40 list for NASA’s Song Contest. Shatner recorded the custom introduction for Discovery’s final voyage — its 39th flight and 13th to the International Space Station.
