Today in 1923 two brothers made it official and began the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio.

At Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios most people miss the very subtle reference to those early days...
Originally they rented a small space in the back of an office owned by Holly-Vermont Realty for $10 a month. It's the space where they would create the Alice Comedies.
Over the next four months they would grow and move into the building next door.

When you're at Hollywood Studios, you can find a nod to those roots on the backside of Keystone Clothiers. There is a door with the Holly-Vemont Realty Company logo on it...
And straight up from there?
A small sign that says "For Rent" which let's you know this is just before two brothers showed up with ideas that would forever alter entertainment.

Top Left: Me in the the fictional spot in the park to match Walt's spot in a photo from the actual location.
Top Right: The rental sign where, at any moment now, two brothers would pay the $10 a month to start something incredible.
Bottom Left: The real world photo of Lillian, Walt, Ruth (Walt and Roy's sister), Roy and Roy's wife, Edna in front of the original studio.
Bottom Right: the park version of the logo for the Holly-Vermont Realty Company that quietly let's you know who might be working in their back office at that moment.

Starting a sketchbook to illustrate some of my favorite stories/moments from trips I take.
Where do you want to travel to?
Where has been your favorite trip?
Anyone else do this? I'd love to see your sketch travel journals.
Also...if I travel near YOU and you'd like me to sketch you, your business, your pet, etc... Let me know!

One of my favorite things to do on dark drives is to listen to the fantastic @amahnke as he tells another story on his @lorepodcast .
Was waiting for a hitchhiking ghost to be appear on the side of the road.

Walking through the house one last time.
Seeing her empty makes me sad.
I get attached to places because of the memories that live there and how they'll be forgotten in time.
She was an ugly little house ten years ago that we put a lot of work into, filled with friends, stories, memories until she became a home.
I hope that her new family will love her as much as I did.
Here's to moving on and the next place we'll call home.
Time for the next chapter.

People that know me have heard the stories of the weird, creepy abandoned home I visited last year. I'm about to catalog/record the VERY personal contents of several boxes left behind in that home.

Driving home tonight...
Melancholy.
Listening to "Sins of the Father" from Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain...
One of my favorite game franchises and a series I always point to when people my own age think videogames are vapid, mindless kid things.
Wrong. Better games are the result of amazing artists from an incredible swath of disciplines...from sound to music to art to programming to design to analytics to marketing to acting to project management.
Play games. They're an integral part of my life...
Like when life is changing and you listen to some of the beautiful soundtracks non-gamers would believe are in videogames.
