Going to Dizzyland
Talk about frustrating. Boing Boing
linked to a page
containing downloads for all of the massive fan-generated 13 disc collection of old and new Disneyland audio (which I wrote about
last August). Only it's not working, probably due to high bandwidth. Guess I'll have to wait a little longer to hear that elusive narration from the Wizard of Bras shop on Main Street!
I have found a couple neato functioning D-Land links, however. The Extinct Attraction Club sells DVD documentaries of classic Disneyland attractions. Don't miss the preview video for the Monsanto House of the Future one, with its earnest filmstrip-narrator extolling the wonders of plastics. And check out these gorgeous Disneyland posters, via Drawn. Next time I go there (this fall, hopefully) for our once-every-ten-years trip (because Christopher hates Disneyland), I'm making a beeline for the Disney Gallery to buy a poster reproduction.

Why not treat yourself early and buy the print online?
I used these guys:
and can vouch for the excellence of their stuff.
I love my 36x48 "Rocket to the Moon" poster in my second floor foyer-- at $55usd it was a steal--but the framing is costs an arm and a leg!
And walking around with it all day at the park, or missing out that day completely because they're closed some days, would wipe a smile off anyone's face.
Hmm, I should. That Rocket Jets one with the space-age logo is beckoning ...
Funny, I'm just finishing up my own obsessive Disneyland audio collection, gathered from Extinct Attractions, the official Haunted Mansion and Pirates CDs, and mostly on visionsfantastic.com. Whatever he doesn't have up on the page is available to hear on his streaming radio station on live365 (there's a link from VF).
Being a sound engineer, I've pulled off an awful lot of it and made mp3s. I could probably be presuaded into a barter. I've got about 3 CDs worth right now.
