What’s good, everybody? Today is going to be the greatest blog post since the beginning of this site.

Why, you may ask?

Because we’re covering two whole days in one post.


Okay, maybe that isn’t the greatest thing to happen, and it might or might now show that I’ve been really bad about consistency lately, but when you’re currently visiting family and they take you shopping for a whole day yesterday, you tend to not have any energy for blogging (and no room in your duffle bag for all the new clothes you’ve got (#nocomplaints)).

Yesterday was Game Time Saturday, a day where I talk about a video game that I play that I think is worth mentioning. And since Disney Day is coming up tomorrow, I figured I’d go ahead and get excited by playing Toy Story Mania.

What is Toy Story Mania, you may ask? I certainly didn’t talk about it in any previous Disney Day blogs. That’s because Toy Story Mania is a game all its own, and if you’ve played it, you know what I’m talking about. Basically, it’s the Toy Story Midway Mania ride at Disney Land/Disney World in a video game.

Yeah, you read that right. This:

Is equivalent to this:

So, for a late Game Time Saturday post, I challenged the Prince of Goofballs, the Sultan of Silliness, and the Original Entertainer himself, my younger brother to a round or two of Toy Story minigames and overall fun. He only won because my Wii Remote refused to cooperate several times. #wiiprobs

But all sibling rivalry aside, let’s talk about the game itself, since that is what Game Time Saturday is all about. The mechanics of the game are about as simple as most Wii games get: you shake, rattle, and roll the remote to get the most points. The story is also pretty basic, and considering how it’s almost exactly the same as the ride at Disney, it’s definitely a lot cheaper than a vacay in Orlando or Anaheim. Why they don’t make all their rides into video games, I’ll never know…

And now, it’s time for…


14. Create a video.

This prompt was a little hard to do simply because there’s a lot necessary to make a proper video. There’s sound equipment, there’s the right kind of camera, and since I’m pretty much broke, I couldn’t really do a whole lot. However, as luck would have it, I do have a pretty sweet video from yesterday about this group of guys called Eric Ottem and the Fuse.

Eric Ottem is the vice principal of my high school where I graduated from. And he’s a boss at the trumpet. I don’t know if the video has it, but he’s got more than one trumpet that he switches in between songs. He and his crew have grown over the past couple of years, so if you’re in Longmont/Boulder and you’re into the smaller music scene, definitely check them out.




Thus concludes our epic 2-day blog post consisting of events yesterday and today. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
