Updated Alice Attraction – Side By Side Video Comparison

This is something pretty neat.  A dedicated Disneyland visitor filmed the entire Alice attraction, both before and after the recent rehab and produced this neat side-by-side comparison video.  Having seen the new ride firsthand this past July, they did a very nice job capturing all the new projections and figures.  Enjoy!

Public Performance of 1915 Silent Film in Fairfax, VA with Live Accompaniment

I can’t believe we’re going to miss this, hopefully some of our DC-area Carrollians will get to go.  The Arts Council of Fairfax County and Virginia Friend is hosting a performance of the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra.  As their website puts it “A family-friendly evening in Strawberry Park combining orchestra and film, based on the 1915 silent movie adaptation, this hour-long program includes musical interludes between sections of the film as well as underscoring of the entire film with new arrangements of familiar children’s songs.  Bring your own blanket and picnic.”

Canada-Maple-Leaf-2For all US citizens who are travelling to Toronto for our fabulous meeting the first weekend in October, this is a reminder that despite certain similarities of speech, Canada is a foreign land and you will be required to possess a valid passport to board a plane or cross the border. If yours is not valid, better hurry to get one. “Routine” applications take 4 to 6 weeks; the pricier “Expedited” 3 weeks, and “Expedited at Agency” (based on need; restrictions apply) 8 business days.
