I find the evolution of this story interesting.

Someone online writes a creepypasta story that's clearly meant to poke at readers' emotional connections to pop culture. Buried in this story are references to two abandoned Disney-related properties and what might be references to Magic Harbor, a failed non-Disney park in Myrtle Beach.

And that would be that. Normally. But then the internet pieces together the fragments of truth buried in the story and promptly starts taking fictional story seriously. They want to know The Truth.

This results in young YouTube creator interviewing a retired cruise line CEO, discussing the nature of the cruise industry and cruise politics in the 1990s. From the details, you can completely see how children at the time would have strange and problematic half-memories of the abandoned property.

More awesome guests confirmed for Breakout. Only two weeks away!
Emily Griggs +Sweet Ingenuity confirmed for BreakoutCon 2017!

Emily Griggs is an author, illustrator, and professional nerd. She freelances for a variety of gaming companies as both a writer and an artist, as well as writing and illustrating her own game projects, working on a webcomic, and selling her line of geeky greeting cards.

Just over two weeks to go! Make sure you get your pass, they're going fast!

The best way to sum up my Dreamation weekend is that my credit card got locked out on Monday. I had to call up the bank and explain "Yes, that was all me this weekend."

It wasn't anything particularly unusual either. Just games, hotel and some items we picked up for Breakout.

Cake by the ocean.
Croissants by the lake.
Timbits by the pool.
Cupcakes in the bathtub.
Bread over the kitchen sink.
