Behold my brain the golden throne of my consciousness. In here I am seated. Shackled. From here I police the land.

Maybe, instead of being drawn into skits with hosts dressed up as Goofy or Elsa, Disney’s “Storyliving” residents will be able to take part in more grounded adventures, as staff who never break character help them navigate mid-life crises and suburban ennui. Why pay for therapy if you can turn your life into theater? A happy ending can be written for you.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

It's not open to the public yet, but Disney deleted one of the trailers. This one still meets the bar so idk how awkward the other one must have been:

Fyre Fest might be a bit strong since there's no deets. But that's the thing, there are no deets for a mid 4 figure price tag hotel room. Even a michelin star meal would be Fyre tier

quote:

I usually have a sandwich for lunch, so this was a pretty exciting moment for me. Until I opened the box.

This meal was made up of vacuum-sealed reconstituted food units. There were three units of salmon, two of sweet potato, and one of asparagus.

They looked like protein pellets for the discerning survivalist.


...

There was an uncanny-valley thing happening there. I think once you run food through a grinder and pour it into a mold, you’ve officially left the earthly plane and entered the otherworldly sphere of industrial food design, where the raspberries are blue and the flaming-hot Cheetos are mysteriously addictive. Flavor gets food science-y. There’s a suspension of disbelief. Nobody’s thinking about real cheese when they’re eating Doritos.

But when you generate a square-shaped facsimile of asparagus that tastes exactly like asparagus but doesn’t feel like asparagus, it’s a little horrifying. It’s not a flavor explosion with asparagus as one of the ingredients, it’s just asparagus with the texture stripped away.

It was like eating a sad, square-shaped memory of what food once was.
