I remember a comedian talking about it on the radio once.


Pretty much, that's what it is. So I guess if anyone wants to see people getting run over with cameras in their hands, just stake out the Thirty Mile Zone, it will happen eventually.

Anyway, returning to my normal Monday time slot tomorrow with pictures from Tron @DCA, afterhours.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Prior to West Coast Bash I partook in a nice prelude event at Disneyland and DCA with a large group of fellow TPR peeps who probably don't even remember what the hell happened that night. Well, now is their chance to relive it, in color. Get it? In living color. I made a joke. haha.

So because I know you all learn better from looking at pictures and reading captions, here they are :devil:

Video POSTED of Shawn dancing at elecTRONica on Page 48!

Ahh. Disneyland. Welcome to the happiest place in L.A. Quick, everyone get a photo of the train station because really, there are no other places to take them in the park.
Disneyland 2.17.11 007.JPG
If you have a cold, cut finger, broken heart, or just plain lazy, stop off here and get a handicap pass. Jokes on you tho as everyone else does it too and lines will be LONGER than the regular lines. But go ahead, if it makes you feel special, do it.
Disneyland 2.17.11 008.JPG
Look! Its construction way!
Disneyland 2.17.11 015.JPG
So this is what happened to #4, it all makes sense now.
Disneyland 2.17.11 019.JPG
Ahhh memories, old school memories. Screw this, let's fly over to DCA.
Disneyland 2.17.11 037.JPG
Look its the crew from Pan Am!
Disneyland 2.17.11 043.JPG
I have to say, I was somewhat glad to move over to DCA, it's much more relaxing, gives me time to reflect on things...
Disneyland 2.17.11 046.JPG
Such as, when are they going to take the loop out?
Disneyland 2.17.11 047.JPG
and, why is the room spinning?
Disneyland 2.17.11 057.JPG
Why look, its JoJo! And she's found her Windex drink!

Windex fixes everything you know.

"I LOVE MY WINDEX DRINKS!"

"OMG, it tastes like windex"
Disneyland 2.17.11 073.JPG
Which of these did Jojo polish off? Post your guesses now!
Disneyland 2.17.11 076.JPG
So now that everyone was nice and buzzed (not drunk, buzzed) it was time to check into the hotel. It is still a mystery today of what happened to our on ride photo...
Disneyland 2.17.11 104.JPG
By the power vested in me, change to night! And my favorite place in all of DCA, TRON!
Disneyland 2.17.11 113.JPG
"Mmmmm, Vegans"
"Oh gawd"
Disneyland 2.17.11 115.JPG
Whoohooo, it's TRON Time!
Look at my magic glass everyone!
Disneyland 2.17.11 116.JPG
Um, Caesar, your date is behind you.
Disneyland 2.17.11 117.JPG
Rock Paper Scissors to see who gets to go home with Jo!
Disneyland 2.17.11 121.JPG
"I swear to you Jo, it's this long"
Disneyland 2.17.11 122.JPG

Disneyland 2.17.11 131.JPG
Party food foul!

"I'm telling you, it starts here and goes out to here"
"Yeah, ok"
Disneyland 2.17.11 135.JPG
"It's about to get funky!"
Disneyland 2.17.11 136.JPG
Go Shawn, it's your birthday, get down with your bad self
Disneyland 2.17.11 139.JPG
Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight
Disneyland 2.17.11 140.JPG
"Hey David, watch this!"
Disneyland 2.17.11 143.JPG
Now the rooms spinning, weeeeeee
Disneyland 2.17.11 144.JPG
Jo just found out it really wasn't that long afterall...
Disneyland 2.17.11 147.JPG

Disneyland 2.17.11 148.JPG

Disneyland 2.17.11 149.JPG

Disneyland 2.17.11 153.JPG
I have no words...
Disneyland 2.17.11 156.JPG
ummmmm, WTF?!?!
Disneyland 2.17.11 158.JPG
"So this is what it feels like to dress up as Fun Ship Freddy"

Disneyland 2.17.11 169.JPG
Shawn is showing us how it's done with his magic light up ice cubes!

Want to see video of Shawn?!?! Comment and tell me!
Disneyland 2.17.11 109.JPG
So now that everyone is nice and beyond buzzed, it's time for a ride on Hollywood Tower!

Disneyland 2.17.11 184.JPG
And with that, DCA is closed and we stumble to our hotels/apartments. What a night, loved every minute of it, good friends, good laughs, good times!

Thanks DCA for a great evening!

Awesome trip report. I'm a bit confused though, as my mom says I'm not supposed to drink windex?

There was an element of 'weirdness' to that whole day- at least for me. Very surrealistic, somewhat twisted, and with it's highs and lows.

Seeing Jo's pile after riding Cali Screamin- PRICELESS. I'm still shocked at that myself.

Riding Tower of Terror for the first and LAST time: I'd still like to see my exact expression on my face for that...

Seeing the 'tipsier' people when I returned to see Tron later...Genuine weirdness all over- and if it weren't for Soarin, StarPort 77 and Pirates of the Caribbean, I'd have stuck around for it, too...

Great photos again, Chad.

That night at ElecTRONica was one of the best nights I have had in a long time. Good friends, good laughs and well some good weirdness. Not to mention the drinks were good too. ;)
