The "WGTWDW" Podcast Show # 18

On this weeks show we spin that great Wheel of Attractions yet again. We then try out a new game for the show and then talk about the new Pixar movie Brave...It was Really Good!
We also reach out to our listeners to help us with audio recordings at the parks. If your going, let us know before hand at and I'll set you up with a good smart phone voice recorder. 

On this show we really discovered one very important fact.  Using 15-30 seconds of carnival music to intro the Wheel of Attractions...Good.  Using it for a background loop for more than one minute...Very Very Bad.  It will not happen again.  For those that don't know our Wheel of Attractions has been with us for the last 16 or so shows.  For those that read these side-notes, you'll be the only ones to know that we might not really have a huge carnival wheel mounted in the office which we spin each show.  For the record, to "backup" the wheel, we use an online randomizer and just as we get to the 16 second mark on the wheel spin noise, I hit enter and the randomizer tells us what we are going to talk about.  So we are talking cold on whatever comes up.  It's great watching the kids hear the name of the attraction and then focus in on the what, where, and our experiences with it and then talk it out.
We tried something new this week in the on the air, Hope named game, 20DQ.  This is the classic 20 questions with Disney Parks, Movies or Characters instead of Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral.  We did three rounds this week with each taking a turn.  If we do this again, we'll only do one per show.  Unless it's guessed quickly.  The idea to try this on the show came from my friends over at the Be Our Guest Podcast Forums.  There is a group of us that regularly play a game of Guess Where this Picture Is Taken.  Once in a while I'll bring the kids in to consult and we thought since people like playing that game, maybe we can do one for those listeners not on the computer out there.  A quick mind exercise.  So if you like this.  Email us and let us know. I think my over-under for saying the email address on the show was around 10.  Trying to push it, can you tell?

Quinn's turn at 20DQ was the perfect lead in to the Pixar Movie Brave.  We saw this the day after release and had a great time.  Lesley was there with us.  The movie was great.  As I said on the show it took all of about 10 seconds for me to say, "WOW!"   The animation was breathless.  I've had time to think about it and my thinking on the movie was great in all regards except for story.  Not sure if they spent enough time on the triplets and other minor things. 
  • Pixar Short at the beginning was the best so far, La Luna.
  • Stay to the very end, after the credits.  It's worth it.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for the Pixar items found in all movies. Witches House
  • Music was really good as you can hear on the show.
I bought that single right away, not sure about the whole album yet.  We will see this again.  Make sure you see it, it was worth it.

Thanks for listening and supporting the show.  Don't forget to email the show your thoughts, ideas or questions for the show to (that's 11).
