R.I.P. Stan Jolley. Film and television art director and one of the original art directors for Disneyland.

As they raced to finish Disney's Magic Kingdom in Anaheim, everyone was working around the clock to get it all done in time for the opening. There was so much pressure to get the park open for July 17, 1955, that he gave his opening day tickets to his parents and took his wife on a two-week vacation to New York City. When he told the other art directors he was skipping the opening, they told him not to expect his job when he returned. Either the opening went well, he really did his job, or Walt Disney has a short memory, because when he got back, Walt put him to work on Disney TV projects!

Another excellent post from +Howard Sherman on how we should behave within social media (and life in general.) I think that posts should spark conversation, not just a stated position that's thrown out there. We can make up our own minds; we don't always need pundits to do it for us. Do we need people to chew our food for us as well?

If you get a chance to see the National Theatre Live's Frankenstein that's playing in movie theatres now, run don't walk! It's amazing! Just got back from seeing it. What an amazing production! 

I was blown away by Danny Boyle's excellent direction and the design of Bruno Poet and Mark Tildesley. Saw the version with Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Frankenstein and Jonny Lee Miller as the Creature. If you get a chance, do see it and if you're really lucky see both versions where the lead actors change roles.

Animated Google Doodle that celebrates the opening of the first drive-in movie theater June 6th, 1933 in New Jersey. We should all celebrate by attending a Drive-In movie tonight. (Now the trick is to find an open one!)
