Star Wars and Disney

So it has happened. Disney paid $4.05 billion dollars to purchase Lucasfilms and all associated items. What does this mean?  It means more Star Wars and Indy in Disney's Hollywood studios!  Speeder Bike track? Thanks, I'll take two! An entire Star Wars land? Bingo! Jar Jar Binks on the underside of the General Joe Fowler? Yes please!
In all seriousness, the potential for the parks is astounding!  Then we get into the new movies!  5 bucks says Johnny Depp will be C3PO...  It'll all be Pirates of El Caribe in space.  How cool is that?
Now I'm sure haters will do what they do best and poo poo the whole deal, but I think that this is going to be great!  The joining of two entertainment giants, neigh, blitzkreiging juggernaughts is a good deal.

The things we do: ran over edition.

     One of the things that we like to do as a family is taking pictures under cars. Sounds silly, doesn't it? Wait, no, I don't actually take picture of the bottoms of cars or hide under the cars and take pictures. (but now that I think about it, hiding under cars for pictures might turn out to be funny, or I might be banned from the parks) No, we place a family member in a mangle mess pose under one of the many prop cars and snap a picture. It's fun and slightly morbid.

Tilt Shift Disney

Oh hey, Jake here. To curb a recent obsession (recent as in an hour ago) my first post is going to be dedicated to tilt shifted Disney pictures. What is tilt shift? Basically it's adjusting the focus of a picture so the contents look like toys or models. Or models of toys. But not toy models. That's absurd. Anyway, here are two pictures.
