E3 2014!

We got to go to E3 again this year! 
That is the Electronic Entertainment Expo.  
It's a trade fair for computer and video games.

Of course, the first thing we did was look for the Disney Infinity booth.

The nice CMs there let me play a game.

Then I met a Rabbid at the Ubisoft booth.

I met Lego Batman at the WB Interactive booth.

We stopped by Telltale Games, one of our favorite video game companies. 

And I got to check out their upcoming pinball game for The Walking Dead:

Then we stopped by Lionhead Studios to demo the upcoming Fable Legends.
We played as one of 4 heroes. 
We wanted to play Winter, but we were the dashing rogue Sterling. 
The Lionhead Studios crew was so kind, they let us play The VILLAIN.
Who's the Villain? I am.  I even have a sign.
Protip: Don't call  Winter, the Ice Sorceress, Elsa in front of the nice Lionhead Studios team.  
Even if they do have more than a passing similarity.

So that was E3 2014! I hope I get to go again in 2015.

Pixar Pizza Planet Truck

I went to Long Beach Comic Expo this weekend.  It was a lot of fun, but one of the best parts was seeing the Pizza Planet Truck.

The Pizza Planet Truck is in EVERY Pixar film...except for The Incredibles
It's one of Pixar's best known Easter Eggs.  

A creative group of people decided to recreate the Pizza Planet Truck, and they cruise around having Disney adventures.  

They're my heroes, basically. 
Here's a link to their blog:

I was so excited to see the Pixar Pizza Planet Truck that I hopped right inside.
To the Pizza Parlor and Beyond.
The nice Pizza Planet Truck man said I might like to try driving.

Buzz, can you be a dear and work the pedals?

Buzz and I still needed someone to work the gear shift. 
We found an ally in the trunk:
You're perfect for the gear shift, Woody

my favorite part of the truck

It's a fantastic recreation.

The only sad part is there was no actual pizza.  Oh well.

My buddy The_Con_Fluence got a great video of the truck too.

It was a fantastic Disney experience!
