Episode 12.5: No Gods or Man, Only Theme Parks

Gott ist tot. Gott bleibt tot. Und wir haben ihn mit einem Themenpark ersetzt.

This month we actually did the impossible. We actually made a half an hour episode talking about a ~12 ish minute long amusement park ride. Have you ever seen another podcast attempt such a thing?  Yessir, it’s the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, at California Disneyland.


Show-notes:


1:52 The last ride he himself had a hand in, not the last one his cry-self had a hand in.
10:41 This song in case anyone wanted to hear it for some reason. Most people don’t know this, but Walt is actually the one doing all the vocals in this. That’s why the audio sucks, cause it was recorded through ice.
11:21 Little do most people know, this early Pirates poster was actually designed by cryo-Walt. No wonder it sucks.
13:02 It’s Walt Disney’s cryo-chamber.
13:56 Wish I could’ve been there on the day Johnny Depp was there. Seeing a famous pirate like Jack Sparrow play an actor like Johnny Depp would’ve been awesome.
15:28 This dog comes to terms with Walt Disney’s still-alive cryo-preserved body as his world goes up in flames. “This is fine,” he says, finally putting his past doubts behind him and accepting it all in his last moments. What a true hero.
21:42 If you don’t already know, Club 33 is Disneyland’s exclusive club. $50,000 down payment to get in plus $15,000 per year, so it’s actually not that expensive. Benefits of joining include access to an exclusive restaurant, alcohol in Disneyland, getting a cameo in a Disney movie, and free viewing of Walt Disney’s cryo-body.

Episode 131: Iron Chef Space

Every planet sends one chef, we decided to send Gordon Ramsey.

As we draw nearer to the end of the season, we decide to race some ships in outer space. Additionally, we say goodbye to… the Black Guardian, for now that is. It’s the conclusion of the Black Guardian trilogy with Enlightenment, written by Barbara Clegg and aired in March of 1983.


Show-notes:


9:38 Not sure whether this is the right thing cause I was too lazy to read the article.
26:15 Check out our other podcast, Double Day.
31:42 Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas, which came out in 1999, was Disney’s first Christmas special. 14 years and several thousand complaint letters later, Disney finally released their first Hanukkah movie, Frozen, to critical acclaim. Other Disney holiday specials include The Emperor’s New Groove (Thanksgiving) and Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon (Guy Fawkes Day).
32:30 Kimba the White Lion was actually a TV show. Many people have noticed that Lion King bears some striking resemblances to it, but what most people don’t know is that Kimba itself was actually based on Disney’s classic 1896 movie Lions 2: Lions.

Episode 110: The Real Radiation Experience

Please fasten your seat belts and put on your radiation helmets.

This week, the question at large is, does the serial make a political point? Well actually the question is, as usual, can Kiyan and Dylan summarize a serial without totally failing? Listen in and find out if Nightmare of Eden can answer both of these questions. It was written by Bob Baker and aired in November and December of 1979.
