about 6-ish months ago, i started this blog, right before MF07 actually. my disney geekitude had been growing and was nurtured by people like my BFF, the gentle guidance of the boys over at WDWToday and, of course, our first home, with dan! and eric over at MGW.

but i knew i was d-list people, i’m not afraid to say it. i’m way wayyyyy down on the disney community food chain. in fact, some might successfully argue that i would be LUCKY to reach d-list status at all.

don’t hate the playa, people, hate the game.

witness: one t-shirt -NOT MADE BY MYSELF bearing the TDC logo (thanks dan!)

this very thing of manly pursuits in the name of all that is american now also bears the likeness of myself and my bff – in feline disguise of course. check out the miles mike is laying down on his blog – seriously, you will be afraid. and if you aren’t scared, you will be. you will be.

witness: TDC’s bursting forth into the world of disney podcasting – no more filler, boys, now WE are the show!!!!!! meooowww!!

witness: TDC’s appear on AATM podcast, and TDC’s plan to take over the enchantment portion of magic meets this july. i mean we’ve had so much success now that we are the mistress of enchantment and chaos (no capes) and are going to SWW. we may bring back a wookie.

 

and then there’s lou (very similar in fact to maude).

 

hey mongello! i think you hear me knockin’ and i’m comin’ in….

 

 

i’m ready for my close up, mr demille

 well, thanks to an announcement on this weeks AATM, you can link up to be part of an independent fiilm  project about the independent disney on-line community – check it out at: The DFO. click over to the site and consider making a submission – there is a deadline for some materials by june 18th, i think. i know myself and a certain other cat i am friends with would be FABULOUS subjects for our OWN documentary, but we’d be a great addition to any program (as we have demonstrated!! 😉 )

i KNOW there isn’t a soul who may come across THIS blog who doesn’t listen to AATM, along with all the other a-listers, but if you haven’t checked it out – DO!!!! take it from all-about-the-mouskateer #145 – its soooo much fun!

 side note: there is an awesome picture of the thunderbirds flying spaceship earth on the AATM show notes page that i am desperately trying to steal and post here, but can’t seem to get wordpress to cooperate!!!!!! but go look at it! isn’t it great!!!!!!!!!!! if you’ve seen my personal blog, you’d know that i ❤ jet noise (and what my favorite flying machine is) but this picture freakin’ ROCKS!!!!!!

for your consideration

dino.jpg 

so, though no one in the dis-ratti world has acknowledged my recent post breaking the news that matt hochberg had indeed ridden the infamous dinosaur ride, the fact remains – YOU READ IT HERE FIRST PEOPLE!!!

i have to admit, the clamoring for evidence – both photographic and audio – has been tremendous. well, now i may offer, for your viewing pleasure, the un-edited audio  and a few pictures from the infamous DINO’07 ride through with matt hochberg of “WDW Today/studios/tower of terror” fame –

HEAR! evil co-riders chant his name as we enter the horror that is Dinosaur!

FEEL! the fear as we decide where matt should ride!

UNDERSTAND! the terror as my large purse gets wedged in the tiny space for carry on items and la mongella must yank it out for me!

KNOW! that over $500 was raised benefiting charities of both looouuuuuu and deb wills!

CLICK HERE! if you dare!!!!!!

*for your ipod

and when i figure out the html code posting nightmare, i will just put it right here…..

thanks dan! for all your help!! 🙂

a day on the d-list

Posted in d-list goals, dis-ratti, MF 07 on December 7, 2007 by sambycat

@ 7:24pm last night, i was riding disney’s magical bus system back -yes, I said back people- back to the magic kingdom for mickey’s very merry christmas party. the day began innocently enough, I never did get back to sleep last night, not really, but at least the plane ride was uneventful… [I flew southwest – that was pretty d-list]. arrived on time in orlando and got on the first of many buses i will be luxuriating on this weekend. i toyed with grabbing a cab and flying over to the carribean beach resort, but decided that was too b-list for me.

i reached the magic kingdom about 115pm earlier that afternoon- mousefest 101 was in full swing, dr.scopa giving the sermon on the mouse. actually, i couldn’t hear much, but i was able to identify the following key players:

  • scopa
  • dave marx
  • mongello
  • matt hochberg and his lovely fiancee, marissa
  • mike newell – with his wife
  • dan!
  • eric
  • mouseguest ma and cathy

there were also several chatters from the MGW boards and other sites that i recognized. ok, i use the term “recognize” loosely, as angel had to stand in front of me and wave around his head to toe KISS gear before i got it..

then things took a turn for the freaky.. biblioadonis aka george appeared out of nowhere, said hello, then began to rattle off every podcaster/blogger name i have ever heard and quick succession. and point them out. i was surrounded people. i try to remain calm, but it all started to seem a bit freaky to me. there was a bit of further discussion, then i morphed back over to the MG group. we were given special incentive by mr. hochberg himself to go ask mike newell a certain question about a certain zombie kid i know. we have yet to realize the material benefit from that fateful meeting, but i will keep you updated.

important to note: went to the dole whip meet. on the walk over, met big brian from nc, he introduced me to the large north carolina contingent. and deb! a fan of TDCs!

OKAY, IMPORTANT SIDE NOT AND LEARNING POINT FOR ME. IF I TRULY WANT TO ACHIEVE AT LEST C+ STATUS, I’M APPARENTLY GOING TO HAVE TO A) WRITE PEOPLES NAMES DOWN SO I CAN REMEMBER THEM (HELLO? MY PUBLIC WILL NOT BE HAPPY IF I CAN’T TELL A DEBBY FROM A MARIA) AND B) I’M GOING TO HAVE TO BE BOLD ABOUT GETTING OTHERS TO TAKE PICS WITH ME IN THEM ALONGSIDE THE DIS-RATTI.

anywho, again, that dole meet was swarming with them! fred block, ray from bare necessities, oh, and some guy named looouuuuuuuuuuuuu.

ok, and let’s not kid ourselves, most importantly (!), like 4 people identified the TDCs logo on my shirt and either said they loved our segment and/or asked if jennifer was there??!! that was freaky and super cool at the same time!

alright now. it’s actually almost 7am and i need to shower and pack up for today’s events and gratuitous wardrobe changes, so i’ll have to quit.  more about the CBR, MVMCP and dis-ratti soon.. oh yeah, and i am going to have become comfortable – quickly- with pimpin’ “the girl’s ride out” on sunday.
