And Now The Most Underwhelmed Disneyland Visitor of All Time

TIME

Some call Disneyland the happiest place on earth, but not this guy. A thoroughly underwhelmed gentleman recorded himself riding the theme park’s greatest rides to the tune of Chamillionaire’s “Ridin’ Dirty.” Splash Mountain? Not that into it. Big Thunder Mountain? He’s seen bigger.

The “Disneyland Death Stare” was appropriately posted by YouTube user Lack of Awesomeness.

Getting Lost while traveling can be a great thing: Seize the Moment

palm tree

On just about every trip I have taken, I have gotten lost. At times, it is just slightly lost and at other times its been a behemoth mess up. For the most part, I have relished the moment. Mind you, my mother’s everyday living nightmare was that I would get lost. She had dreams that scared her to the point that we never separated in supermarkets. I was to have a hand on the shopping cart at all times. For nine years I was her only child and I was essentially a walking bar of gold. She would not let me out of her sight. I grew up with the fear of getting lost. Thus, of course, I eventually rebelled against that fear and welcomed being lost. The fact that my mother let go of my hand to…

A single-A team is selling for $40 million

HardballTalk

Eric Fisher of Sports Business Journal reports that the single-A Dayton Dragons are being sold by current owner Mandalay Baseball to a company called Palisades Arcadia Baseball. That’s not a big deal. Minor league teams sell all the time. What is a big deal is the price: $40 million, which Fisher says is the highest price ever paid for a minor league team.

Now, the Dragons are not your run-of-the-mill minor league teams. As Fisher notes, they have the longest sellout streak in the history of U.S. sports. They set the record in 2011 with their 815th straight sellout. It’s still going strong. In May they sold out their 1,000th straight game.

The Adventures of Siskin and Valderan

The Adventures of Siskin and Valderan

Way back in the mists of time, I started this blog as a way of finding readers for my fantasy series, which at that time was still being written. Back in May 2012, I would never have believed that it would take so long to get my book out there into the (virtual) hands of readers. It’s been a bit of an epic journey but I have got there in the end, and I’m very happy to say that the first book in the series has just gone on sale on the Kindle store!

Readers from the US and Canada can find it here on Amazon.com.

Readers from the UK can find it here on Amazon.co.uk.

It can also be found on Amazon, via a unique identifier which is B00LGJLOQS.

If you’d like to have a sneaky peak at the book, check out this treasure trove of links
