A few weeks ago the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art located on the campus of the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma began displaying a private collection titled "A Century of Magic: The Animation of the Walt Disney Studios"

Included in the exhibit are more than 80 original Animation Cels from the Collection of Janis Scaramucci and Domer “Jay” Scaramucci, some signed by Walt Disney himself and other signed by those who played the part of Walt's characters. A Century of
Magic surveys many of the major animated films,beginning with the first feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), and concluding with Fantasia/2000 (1999).

As you can imagine with any art gallery where the use of flash is prohibited, it was challenging to get decent photos that showed the multiple layers that make up a single animation cel. It was not uncommon to see four or more layers to each animation cel, all which start with a background layer. The gallery lighting was especially challenging trying to position to remove glare, so please keep that in mind as shooting a reflective surface with lights shining down on it isn't all that easy ;)

The exhibit opened March 3rd and runs through September 16th with special showings of various of Disney movies and kids activities throughout the exhibition. Admission to the museum is free to OU students with a current student ID and museum association members, $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for children 6 to 17 years of age, $2 for OU faculty/staff, and free for military veterans with proof and children 5 and under. The museum is closed on Mondays and admission is free on Tuesdays.

If you are in town for a credit run at Frontier City or live within a few hours its certainly worth checking out!

So with the above, Milestone #1 was achieved for Give Kids the World!

Second Milestone: $75 - Achieved!! Adventure to be released April 9th!

Adventure to be Released: I have no shame in riding kiddie coasters, and this report will prove it. Three kiddie coasters at three different parks. All three parks visited for the sole purpose of whoring their kiddie coaster.

Third Milestone: $125 - $45 from reaching the third Milestone!

Adventure to be Released: An adventure to what is Kansas' only amusement park, plus a visit to a Smithsonian affiliated Space Museum and as an added bonus photos from a defunct park!

Fourth Milestone: $200 - Random box of crap from Las Vegas!

Donkeys are my way of life!

Don't know how I missed the Disney stuff, but omg that is amazing. I wish Disney would go back to that. There is something so beautiful about it all.

Can't wait to see your credit whoring skills.

Re: Chadster's Vacation Adventures: Whorish Photo TR for GKTW!

Postby chadster » Mon Apr 09, 2012 7:05 pm

Thanks to PAL for pushing me up to the next trigger for a special edition of Chadster's Vacation Adventures, I bring to you exclusively a very dirty, whorish Photo TR featuring not 1, not 2, but 3 kiddie coasters, PLUS a bonus coaster known as the only air time coaster in California! Think you know what it is?

My first journey takes me to Las Vegas, where thanks to info from Shawn C. and Caesar D., I happened upon a GHETTO CARNIVAL! Whoohoo!

LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 004.JPG
Welcome to the Ghetto Carnival! For those not familar with Las Vegas, this Carnival really is/was in the Ghetto located off of 95 @ Rancho Drive.
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 006.JPG
Ghetto wristbands self-destruct after a period of time.
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 011.JPG
At least this one is not duct taped together
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 017.JPG
Fly me to the moon
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 020.JPG
talk about old school, looks like something built out in the back yard
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 027.JPG
Carnival staple.
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 035.JPG
I'm sure all of these games are legal and played with the strictest of standards and tolerances.
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 037.JPG
But wait, what do we have here? A Bird? A Plane? why it's not Captain America, but it's The Roller Coaster Ride!
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 039.JPG
Oddly enough, it's the smoothest coaster in Vegas!
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 041.JPG
and lightening fast!
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 043.JPG
and operated by a professional. Credit 440 in the books!
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 008.JPG
But since I over bought on tickets, might as well try out a carny Yo-Yo
LV Ghetto Carnival 3.30.12 065.JPG
It hauled so fast I couldn't take a steady picture! One of the better ones I've been on for sure.


So now it was time to fly all the way to San Diego and make the short drive to Boomers! in El Cajun. For a Friday night the place was dead, so maybe it was a good thing I got this one now ;)

But on this trip, I wasn't the only one who was getting a new credit....

Boomers El Cajon 005.JPG
Noted!
Boomers El Cajon 006.JPG
It's a Santa Claw knock off!
Boomers El Cajon 008.JPG
Why ChrisRad is overly enthusiastic about this credit whoring business
Boomers El Cajon 015.JPG
In fact, once he saw this control panel, well, lets just say he started twitching spontaneously
Boomers El Cajon 018.JPG
Yeah baby
Boomers El Cajon 021.JPG
This is Chris' first powered coaster as indicated by the number of fingers he is holding up.
Boomers El Cajon 028.JPG
Um, this thing goes backwards?!?!
Boomers El Cajon 027.JPG
weeeeee
Boomers El Cajon 031.JPG
So as we left the Kounty Fare behind...
Boomers El Cajon 032.JPG
We ended up here where they have some to-die-for fish tacos. Highly Highly recommend.


And finally I head up to Scandia from San Diego and hit up their kiddie coaster...Nice park actually, not many rides per say, but the golf course looks really cool, the clientele though is somewhat suspect...
Scandia 006.JPG
Hi Caesar! Not sure what happened of the picture he took of me on this beauty.
Scandia 008.JPG
So we left the station and stopped here. Yes, stopped. After the train stopped, here. They turned the motor on.
Scandia 010.JPG
And we did this thing, went back to the station, stopped, then went back to the lift, stopped, and did it all over again, twice more.
Scandia 4.1.12 009.JPG
But wait, there's more! Chris wanted to go this time!
Scandia 4.1.12 007.JPG
2 thumbs up means this is his second whore credit of the weekend!
Scandia 4.1.12 021.JPG
But enough of the small credits.
Scandia 037.JPG
Let go to a big boy coaster!
Scandia 049.JPG
OMFG FRONT SEAT AIRTIME!
Scandia 062.JPG
You 100% NEED the seatbelt in the front seat.
Scandia 071.JPG
Only teenagers can take it in the rear, and those who act like teenagers, so we took it in the rear. Still some air, but not near as much as the front.
Scandia 072.JPG
Words to live by.

And with that, the whoredom ends.

Next Week: Pacific Park - where we answer the question, Does Bubba Gump's use fresh fish? Tune in to find out!

^Hmmm, I'm going to guess the Bubba Gump's question...NO.
