Mouse Lounge Supplemental: Spaceship Earth Preview (December 9, 2007)
Season Two kicks off with a preview of the all new Spaceship Earth from Epcot.

It took three days and nearly six hours of diligent waiting during Mousefest for this recording to become a reality.  From my point of view Disney brass has made it very clear to cast members that they are not to divulge any details as to when the attraction will preview or for how long.  In truth, they may not know!  This evening (Sunday) the attraction walls were well staffed with low level CMs answering the incessant question.

VIPs clearly are being allowed privileged sneak peeks and guests are being brought in on a pacify the masses basis. 

The attraction is not yet finished.  Perhaps Disney is relying upon the feedback from podcasts such as this to learn which direction to take in order to put the finishing touches on the work.  As focus groups and preview audiences are the norm in motion pictures it would make sense that the Mouse would like to know what you think of the current incarnation of this work in progress.

Mouse Lounge -- Epsiode 024 -- April 20, 2007 (((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED))) RATED PG FOR MILD ADULT LANGUAGE


This week in the Mouse Lounge: A full docket of Disney News from our departments Entertainment (including a GREAT guest correspondent!), Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business.


Each week in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. Walt may not have been an auto aficionado; practical transportation (with the notable exception of a backyard train) was his moteris operandi. He did realize however that car junkies and other addled nitwits that occupy the road make for some great comedic and educational material.


From 1950, we take in the entirety of Motor Mania. Now like several weeks ago with the short, Reason and Emotion this cartoon got the Ludwig von Drake treatment for the Wonderful World of Color anthology series. The difference however, is that the former was a wartime cartoon, and was edited for content when it was presented to television audiences. Motor Mania on the other hand is plain old Goofy silliness and the narration remains intact. That said, the delivery of the narration is much funnier with Ludwig, so that version is featured on the podcast.


Next up you'll hear a segment from the classic 1970 Dad, Can I Borrow the Car? If you’re at a computer, log into the multimedia section of mouselounge.com where I have posted the script from this sequence and screen captures as well. Plus, without cheating (Google or Wiki, etc.), see if you can pick out who's narrating the short and who's voice is in the training film sequence. If you do get it, it'll be just barely.


Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East and a Disney Park West. This week in Disney Parks West, we present our featured attraction; Autopia. (Just kidding!) Actually, what better way to exemplify a road trip than with one of the first loonies on the road, Mr. Toad on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.


From the Disney Family Museum; Since The Walt Disney Company has recently reacquired the rights to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and announced a December release of Oswald shorts on Wave VII of the Walt Disney Treasures series, hear in Walt's own words how he lost the character and what happened to him.


From Disney Parks East, we head over to Epcot and Futureworld and take a wild ride of our own, on Test Track.


Each week we feature a unique take on Disney music. On this podcast, enjoy a special Mouse Lounge Mix from the movies, with fantastic references to cars and their drivers. This is a real hoot!


Enjoy!

Mouse Lounge -- Epsiode 023 -- March 19, 2007 (((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))


This week in the Mouse Lounge: A full docket of Disney News from our departments Entertainment, Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business


Each week in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. It has long been thought that the Mickey Mouse Club lead-ins recorded in 1955 were the last time Walt ever voiced the famous mouse. With a recent discovery in the Disney Archive, that is no longer true. Presented in 1962 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Walt filmed a special Cinemascope presentation of, Disneyland USA, interacting with a costumed Mickey Mouse performing live on the stage. The voice of Mickey is irrefutably Walt.


Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East and a Disney Park West. This week in Disney Parks West, we present our featured attraction; Pirates of the Caribbean recorded in January 2007. From the sounds of bayou water lapping up against the side of the boat, to the rattling percussion of cannon fire; don your headphones and do not miss this exceptional ride-through.


From the Disney Family Museum; Listen to Walt as he talks about his relationship with the new medium of television and how that leads to the beginnings of Disneyland. Then hear Diane Disney Miller as describes to Leonard Maltin those days when she was very young and she and her sister Sharon used to spend Saturday afternoons with their famous father at the then new Disney Studios in Burbank.


From Disney Parks East, we head over to the Magic Kingdoms Liberty Square, just in front of the docked Liberty Belle at the Pirates and Princess Party and take in a set of the Riverboat Roulettes. They wrote the third song in the set, Jolly Roger, which was re-tooled and used on the pirate hijacked Liberty Belle throughout the party.


Each week we feature a unique take on Disney music. On this podcast, enjoy the Dixieland sounds of New Orleans, Disney-style as we take in a set of the Firehouse Five Plus two, traversing thirteen years. One number is from their 1949 debut album, The Firehouse Five Plus Two Story, while the other two songs in the set are from Live from the Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland, circa 1962.


Enjoy!

Mouse Lounge Supplemental: An Evening in World Showcase (((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))


I consider this show supplemental because it doesn't even remotely resemble the Mouse Lounge format.


In this departure, we take a clockwise musical tour of most countries in World Showcase, sampling live music from each. I have selected what I consider to be the best from each set recorded last week.


Mexico: Mariachi Cobre All the musicians in this group are outstanding vocalists. The soloists in this number are fantastic examples.


Norway: Spellmans Gledge While the audience wasnt exactly enthusiastic, there is no shortage of musicianship in this group. The double-bass player was using a decrepit old thing that sounded wonderful!


China: Si Xian Anne plays a modern 21-string floor standing harp. About the size of a pedal steel guitar with both nylon and steel strings, this instrument sings in her capable hands.


Germany: Oktoberfest Musikanten What can I say...Uber Oom-pa-pa!


America: The Voices of Liberty Among the finest a capella groups I have yet heard, under the dome they sound absolutely spectacular!


Japan: Matsuriza Taiko drumming that takes your breath away. See this fine group live whenever possible.


Morocco: Mo Rockin Ethnic Moroccin rhythms fused with jazz and rock to create a sound that is utterly unique. This track features an absolutely incredible electric bass solo. The lead vocals are a bit hot (saturated) in this recording but the instrumentals more than make up for the technical shortfall. Listen for a foreshadowing to the next group, which is...


United Kingdom: British Invasion Pure unadulterated kitsch, but great musicianship and loads of fun.


Canada: Off Kilter The band was completely ON this night, and they closed out their set with a wicked jig.


World Showcase Lagoon: Illuminations I wasn't happy with the raw, live Illuminations: Reflections of Earth audio. So, what you'll hear is a synchronized mix of live and on board (pre-recorded) audio to get the best of both!


Five For Fighting: World A fitting tribute to World Showcase and a fine conclusion to the show.


Enjoy!!
