2023.02.02 16:22 CheerTheBlueTiefling [Online][5e][LGBTQ+][20+][EST] Looking for Two Players to join a weekly Rime of the Frostmaiden campaign

Campaign: Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden (dnd 5e module)
DM info: 29F, 7 years experience in 5e
When: Starting in March or April
Schedule: Weekly, Mondays from 1pm EST- 6pm EST
How Long: 1-1.5 years
Levels: 1-12
Looking For: 2 players, ages 20+, experienced
Total Party Size: 5 players and 1 DM
Where: Discord for voice, FoundryVTT for game


Hello! I (29F) have been DMing 5e for 7 years, the majority of which has been run online. A little about me: I’m American, living on the East Coast. Former history teacher (left the profession) and theater kid. I’m bi, ace and married in a het relationship. I am heavily left-leaning and am not interested in people who are moderate or right-leaning/alt-right. Indifference is compliance.
I am a high quality DM who puts in a lot of love and effort into running my games. It’s my hobby, creative outlet and passion. I’m always striving to make it better. I run my games on Foundry and utilize modules to enhance the experience. I am subscribed to Patreons who provide high quality and animated maps. I record all of my game sessions and upload them to youtube (unlisted) for only the party to access. After each session, I write and post recaps to help keep track of all information (and also to provide a written “history” of our games). I have a history of incorporating guest characters and running in-campaign Oneshots where you play a different band of adventurers that could potentially affect the main story. I’m inspired by Critical Role and Dimension20. I prefer to use visual maps rather than theater of the mind for most instances and will often even provide images to just help visualize the scenes. I love doing voices to differentiate my characters and fleshing out my NPCs to make the world feel real.
I am often very rules heavy, preferring to have consistent structure and fair play. That being said, I am also open to the “rule of cool” in instances where it feels appropriate. Generally I’m not too worried about things that wouldn’t actually affect game mechanics like re-flavoring spells or re-skinning creatures to better fit your character (as long as the mechanics remain the same, I don’t care what it looks like). I generally prefer to avoid using homebrew classes/ races/ subclasses/ spells etc. I do have a list of homebrew rules that I’ll go over during Session 0 (things like bonus action for potion drinking). I allow Tasha Rules and almost everything from the available source books, however, I usually restrict things to be setting specific. For example, Ebberon or Ravnica races will not be allowed in this campaign.
It is my expectation that players do not try to “break” the game or overly-optimize their character by exploiting different mechanics even if they are “technically” RAW. I will be strict and/or impose changes to better balance the game/character. For example, when Healing Spirit first released, in its RAW form, the spell could be used out of combat and characters could just congo-line through to each receive 10d6 of healing. Before the errata came out, I had changed the spell so that it was limited to a total of 10d6 that could be distributed amongst the 5 characters however they’d like. So if I feel like something RAW is breaking the balance of the game, then I will look to change it, and preferably by collaborating with the players. (For Healing Spirit, I now go by the errata changes).
I want my games to be dramatic and fun. It’s important for me to collaborate with my players to tell excellent stories with highs and lows. It’s also my utmost priority to have a safe environment void of possible triggers (a discussion to be had privately and during session 0). Though to be perfectly upfront some THEMES TO EXPECT if you wish to join will be darkness, isolation, sacrifice, death, horror, survival, paranoia, exhaustion, cannibalism, madness. But there is absolutely NO Sexual Assault/r*pe and NO allusion to sexual assault/r*pe allowed at anytime from characters or DMs.
I am currently finishing up a homebrew campaign that lasted for 3.5 years, with nearly 140 sessions (at some point I did have to take an extended hiatus due to moving across states, but we did return to the campaign). I learned a lot about running a long term campaign during this time and I hope to utilize what I know to create an even better experience for my next campaign!

What I’m looking for in a player:

I’m looking for a player who is going to bring a lot to the table. I put in a great amount of work in order to create the best game I possibly can, so I’m hoping to have that reciprocated by my players. I have been burned before by players who do the absolute bare minimum and I’ve found myself being unsatisfied by the quality of my games and thus no longer enjoying myself.
Fellow DMs are encouraged to apply, especially if they rarely get the opportunity to play. In my experience, DMs are some of my best players (: And it's a bonus too, especially if you’re willing to run the occasional oneshot!
Women and members of the LGBTQ+ community are also encouraged to apply as myself and the other players are women and/or fellow gays and I know not all game tables are safe places for us <3
I am looking for players who have:
And overall, I’m hoping to make some new friends! Almost everyone I’ve ever played DnD with has become a good friend of mine!
A list of things I’ve experienced that I’m looking to avoid in my future players:
I prefer players who enjoy more traditional fantasy archetypes and settings. I’d like to avoid characters that are “a foxgirl that fell from outer space and can only breathe water.” Overly outrageous, wacky or gimmick characters are not welcome.
Wow! If you’ve actually read all of the above and are still interested in joining, please fill out the following application in the comments below!
DISCLAIMER: I realize I am asking a lot of players and have specific expectations of them. I recognize these high standards are personal and not indicative to how the gaming community \should* play their games. My standards and my preferences aren’t the “correct” way. There’s so many ways to play ttrpgs! And while I do enjoy a fun, loosey-goosey, over the top game that doesn’t come with high expectations, that is just not what I’m looking for in this upcoming campaign.*

Come explore more at the Museum of Natural History. First Friday Fractals is the spectacular, award-winning full dome planetarium show that takes viewers on a tour of the fractals in nature and zooms through infinitely complex mathematical fractals. Featuring original music, the show is both educational and highly entertaining, and suitable for audiences 3 and up. A fractal is a never-ending pattern. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. They are created by repeating a simple process over and over in an ongoing feedback loop. Driven by recursion, fractals are images of dynamic systems – the pictures of Chaos. Geometrically, they exist in between our familiar dimensions. Fractal patterns are extremely familiar, since nature is full of fractals. For instance: trees, rivers, coastlines, mountains, clouds, seashells, hurricanes, etc. Abstract fractals – such as the Mandelbrot Set – can be generated by a computer calculating a simple equation over and over.

As the car emerged as the primary form of personal transportation in the last century, America’s roads became central to connecting people and places.

The documentary film Route 66: The Untold Story of Women on the Mother Road investigates this history by looking at how women overcame segregation and gender discrimination to build fulfilling lives for themselves and generations to come on America’s most beloved road.

The formula for the 1st Sunday of the month Sing-Along is 1) a list of familiar and very sing-able songs, 2) comfortable keys accompanied by guitar back up and, 3) lyric sheets (who remembers all of the words?), 4) we'll sing out strong, so you feel comfortable singing too. If you can’t make this one, join us next time! Dan holds a Sing-Along every first Sunday in the month. Sing-Along leader Dan Matthews has led small sing-alongs at Albuquerque Folk Fest for many years. In 2010, he was invited to put together a main stage Sing-Along tribute to Pete Seeger. A posse of friends with strong voices has led scores of people in rousing, meaningful and joyous song each year since.

  • Leon Sinks: First Saturday Hike. If it is the first Saturday of the month, it is time for a hike at Leon Sinks!

Right off US 319 south of Tallahassee, the Leon Sinks Geological Area contains 5 miles of trails leading to a series of sinkholes big and small. The land in this area is underlain by a layer of limestone, eroded and dissolved by rainwater and groundwater to form caverns, holes, and tunnels. This type of terrain is called "karst" and results in many geological features such as wet sinkholes, depressions, natural bridges and a disappearing stream. The hikers can either hike the 3.6-mile Sinkhole Trail to view the numerous sinkholes and geological features, or the 2.8-mile Gum Swamp Trail around a cypress and gum swamp. We recommend wear hiking shoes and bring a water bottle and consider bug spray or long pants/sleeves. Bring a lunch and stay after for the Friends of Leon Sinks meeting. 10am

Created by Sylvia Milo, the play is set in a stunning 18-foot dress (designed by Magdalena Dabrowska from the National Theater of Poland). Directed by Isaac Byrne, The Other Mozart is based on facts, stories and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family’s humorous and heartbreaking letters. Along with music composed by her famous brother and Marianna Martines (a female composer who inspired Nannerl), original music was written for the play by Nathan Davis and Phyllis Chen (of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, the International Contemporary Ensemble and BAM) for the instruments Nannerl knew intimately, such as clavichords, music boxes, and bells, as well as teacups, fans, and other ordinary objects that might have captured her imagination. 7:30pm

2023.02.01 08:27 rummeln Question about fog in Daly City

Coming from San Francisco, I've noticed that the fog line roughly aligns with 280 (from Glen Park and south). Does this continue into Daly City? Is the area east of the 280 less foggy (I guess I'm thinking of the area behind the movie theater), or is it generally blanketed throughout Daly City.

2023.02.01 00:14 Haunting_Tale_5150 [Disney Theme Parks] Innoventions - The Road to Tomorrow has disheveled

Experience the road to tomorrow, today!
Up and coming technology is always interesting, with growth in new information and resources meaning that technology can always improve to improve day-to-day life. However, for a lot of people what that up and coming technology may be is a complete mystery or unavailable to them to see, use, and/or own. Leading a lot of fear towards what the new technology could do or misinformation. However what if, there was a way for the average person to not only see new technology in advance, but get a hands-on experience of how it works as well! Not only will it mitigate silly superstitions, but it can also bring up sales and brand recognition immensely. Not only that, but what if all of that was at Disney's largest theme park, meaning large amounts of people will see your product and spread the word. Sounds like an amazing opportunity for any company.
Now how would you react that not only did all of this actually happened, but it no longer exists.
This is the story of Innoventions, the attraction showcasing the latest and greatest. Why it was failed to be updated and how that failure lead to the attractions greatest controversy and closure.
Fair warning, further down is some actual heavy topics. So tread carefully down this wild tale about the road to tomorrow.
EPCOT (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow)
Walt Disney was quite the optimist who had a lot of visions of what the far future would bring and how it would help humanity. He made many popular T.V. specials showcasing future living which inspired the creation of Tomorrowland, a showcase of various up-and-coming tech and how they could help human living. Maybe there will be rocket trips all across space to teach children about the ecosystems of the planets. Maybe submarines could take daily tours of the deep sea and discover our fantastical views of ocean life in the past was more real than expected.
However the genesis that started the EPCOT project was a lot funnier than a visionary coming up with optimistic ideas for a future society. Walt reportedly hated being woken up by garbage trucks or seeing the dirt on the streets of Los Angeles. This gave Walt the idea to create a great city that didn't have the loudness of garbage trucks and the problem of dirt and waste is obliterated. A city where technology is always growing, improving, and being replaced for the times. A plan he called EPCOT: the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.
EPCOT would have been circular in shape, with many branching businesses, houses, apartments, and greenery. There would have been a monorail and a Peoplemover to take people to and from places. Each business in EPCOT would have worked for Disney or a company that worked with Disney. It was also plannedto be under a dome to protect citizens from harsh weather.
The most interesting thing about EPCOT was that it was meant as a working prototype for the future of living, technology, and even government. There would have been an one thousand acre office park where businesses would work on new technologies. If a new advancement was made, homes within the city would be the first to receive these new advancements immediately. Testing products before they would be released to the rest of the world.
For example, let's say Joe lived in a home within EPCOT and had a toaster. If a building near him invented a smart toaster, Joe would see his old toaster be replaced by the smart toaster immediately. Joe would have no say on whether or not he wanted to keep his old toaster.
Walt was so devoted to this idea he televised his plan.
There were several issues plaguing Walt's dream of EPCOT. For example, many businesses could not grasp what the plan even was.
Soon after the World's Fair, Walt and the Imagineers visited Westinghouse Electric headquarters to discuss the Community of Tomorrow. They'd eventually hit all the majors—IBM, DuPont, General Electric, the Sarnoff—but first up was Westinghouse. The day kicked off with Disney's EPCOT pitch, then Westinghouse followed with their own product preview. Then there was lunch, and then cocktails. Then more EPCOT talk. "By the next morning," Gurr says, "everybody was still saying, 'Well, what the hell is this place? I don't understand it!'"
- Legendary Imagineer Bob Gurr
Walt also didn't think of the bigger picture and logistical questions behind EPCOT, which the imagineers had to figure out on their own after he passed. Stuff like "where would the kids go to school" and "what would weather, transport, and high powered trash disposal would mean in a city kept under a dome?"
However, despite all the oddness and dystopian ideas (for modern viewers looking at all his plans anyway), after Walt's passing, the imagineers wanted to keep his dream alive. At least the central core idea of having an area where the average person can experience the latest and greatest of technologies hands-on. This lead to the creation of...
EPCOT (The theme park)
The new plan was a whole theme park, known also as EPCOT Center (which I will just refer as EPCOT for the rest of the writeup). However, many people who had watched Walt's televised demonstration of his city were confused about the plan. So confused in fact that a pamphlet was made on how to answer certain questions. For example:
EX: “EPCOT the theme park? Was EPCOT originally supposed to be a city?”
ANSWER: “The word ‘Epcot’ -- when used alone -- refers to Walt Disney’s original dream and idea for the Florida project. Epcot -- the experimental community of tomorrow -- is actually ALL of Walt Disney World. NOT just EPCOT Center.
Which was quite the non-answer, but enough to quell people. In the meantime the upcoming theme park had other issues besides general public confusion. The most notable information to know about the EPCOT of the 80s was that it was divided by two sections: first was Future World, dedicated to future technologies and how they help humanity. Second, was World Showcase, dedicated to seeing the cultures and history around the world and the hope of bringing the world together.
Originally, Future World really was going to live up to Walt's dreams and have guests be able to see demonstrations of future technologies, and may even get a chance to try them hands-on. However, many companies sponsoring attractions got cold feet about it, mainly due to fears that competing businesses would see or hear about the new technologies at EPCOT, take the plans, and release them to the world before the sponsor could. This is why many 80s EPCOT attractions went the route of telling origin stories about how current technology came to be (for example Spaceship Earth, about the history of communications) instead of testing future ones.
The closest attractions where guests could actually test some future technologies in the completed EPCOT were Journey into Imagination's Imageworks and the main attraction of this write-up, Communicore.
Communicore was a portmanteau standing for "Communicator to the world". The original plans for Communicore was an area where guests will see the most creative members and great minds of the world give speeches. The speeches were planned to include some "Disney magic" so they could be both educational and entertaining. In a way the original vision was quite ahead of its time, as the plan sounds not too dissimilar to TED Talks), just in a theme park setting. However, with many guests still seeing the EPCOT concept as a way to see the future, today, Communicore had to become the hub to experience the groundbreaking technologies.
Let's take an imaginary walk through Communicore to experience all it had to offer.
There were two sections of Communicore: East and West, with East being the main one. You will see why further down our "walk".
Going down East, guests will encounter the highlight of Communicore: EPCOT Computer Central. The attraction originally starred Ken Jennings, the actor who played the original role of Sweenie Todd, as a cockney man who via Pepper's Ghost effect would dance around and sing about how the computers work. This version of the attraction was incredibly short-lived, lasting from 1982 to 1984. The attraction was reworked into Backstage Magic, which was so popular that the Backstage Magic name is still used for backstage tours. This Backstage Magic, however, was only focused on the computer aspect of Disney World, not the whole park. These computers showcased how EPCOT's computers control not only the rides, but also the animatronics and fancy touchscreens guests can encounter later in Communicore.
Going down further, guests would meet SMRT-1, a robot who played guessing games. He was voice activated, which was revolutionary at the time. The voice activation made it seem like guests were really playing a game with SMRT-1, rather than pushing some random buttons to make him work.
There was the Great American Census Quiz, which quizzed people on six topics, such as the 50 states and animals, complete with questions and answers that reflected up-to-date information. It was attached to a giant up-to-date population counter, to see the growth of humanity in real-time.
Going down further guests will encounter three touchscreen games. Manufactory, which had guests assemble an American Flag, if they get all the pieces together correctly a Mickey shape will appear. Get Set Jet, where guests use fingers to load luggage onto airplanes, with maintenance checks occasionally interrupting the loading to add challenge. Most interesting of all was Compute a Coaster, a build your own roller-coaster experience. The coaster was generated in CGI and the screen showed a view of the coaster after completion, as if the guests were riding the coaster they built. To tie it together with Disney magic, the attraction was hosted by a cartoon beaver who had a voice similar to Gopher from the Winnie the Pooh series.
There was Teleport, an interesting attraction where guests could see slideshows of various destinations with touchscreens. At the entrance was the World Festival Sphere, a sort of simulator pod to experience various countries.
To be specific, you wanted to go to Columbia and visit the region of that country that inspired Disney’s “Encanto.”
The way the World Festival Sphere worked was … First you could the attendant working at this CommuniCore attraction that you wanted to experience the Republic of Columbia. That EPCOT Center Host or Hostess then input the proper destination in the computer that powered this 14-foot-in-diameter sphere. You then stepped inside of the World Festival Sphere. And -- for 60 seconds -- music and images from that country washed over you.
American Express’ World Festival Sphere was outfitted with all sorts of video elements and theatrical lighting. The goal of this display was to temporarily overwhelm all of your senses. Make you feel like you had to go on vacation to this part of the world.
-Jim Hill
Originally, the World Festival Sphere had a smell element, similar to the oranges on Soarin', where guests can experience the smells alongside the sights of their chosen country. However, the scents were cut from the experience after the discovery that the smell of tapas to represent Spain would linger in the sphere and overpowered other smells.
Then there was the Electronic Forum area of Communicore, which hosted two areas related to news and ongoing topics. There was the News Choice Theater, which had three hanging television banks that aired news, sports, business news, and Disney news. Below the hanging TVs were polls asking for the most important person of the 20th century.
Then there was the Future Choice Theater, where a host/hostess would present worldwide news topics and audience can submit their voice on the topic via answer panels on the armrests of the chairs.
The largest area of Communicore East was Energy Exchange, which had various exhibits dedicated to the topic of energy. This attraction was tied to the Universe of Energy ride. Guests were encouraged to visit Communicore after riding the Universe of Energy to get answers on any energy related questions they may have. Or they could visit to experience the future of energy hands-on.
Communicore East hosted two restaurants: Stargate and Beverage Base. Stargate had more traditional meals, while Beverage Base had refreshments and small snacks.
It also had a two level shop known as Centorioum, a riff on Magic Kingdom's most popular store Emporium (puns like this were very much Disney's humor at the time). Imagineers wanted to copy the Emporium's design goals, so the store was placed on the south-east of Communicore, that way when guests exit EPCOT, there was a large chance they would enter it. Remember when I said Communicore East was the "main area" of Communicore? Centorioum is most likely the reason why.
The first floor of Centorioum was dedicated to traditional EPCOT and Disney Merchandise while the second was dedicated to electronics, sports clothes, and Art of Disney Merchandise.
Communicore West had less attractions than its East side, but they were still notable. There was a large area known as Futurecom, dedicated to communications. Similar to how Energy Exchange was tied to Universe of Energy, this area was tied to Spaceship Earth.
The segments in Futurecom were full of strange whimsy. There was the Information Fountain, which showcased all the forms of communication in a familiar shape. The Age of Information had an animated display with wooden dolls and various touchscreen games. The A-mazing Microchip was a maze themed to microchips. The Intelligent Network showcased long distance telephone routes across the United States.
The most interesting part of Telecom was the attraction simply titled Teleconferencing. The guests were recorded by a camera which was used by a cast member to communicate with them via a television screen. This was incredibly ahead of its time and was used to help guests really feel like they stepped into the future.
There was also EXPO Robotics, which had various KUKA Arms do a variety of actions, such as precision top spinning, drawing portraits, and airbrushing t-shirts.
Some smaller areas included EPCOT Outreach, which displayed various concept art for future EPCOT exhibits. There was also The Teacher Center which had study guides for teachers looking to visit EPCOT for field trips. For those hungry over at West, it also had its own restaurant in the form of the Sunshine Terrace.
Communicore failed for a variety of reasons. The Future Choice Theater was originally heavily considered to be cloned to Disneyland's Tomorrowland, but it was discovered most guests did not know about the topics being discussed. It was also discovered most guests did not care much for the educational aspects of EPCOT and Communicore. The main draw for EPCOT's target audience was the fact one could buy alcohol there, something which was not commonplace at Disney theme parks at the time. There was also the lack of Disney themed attractions, something that was pitched to be solved with a TRON arcade placed within Communicore. This never happened due to the failure of the movie.
The most glaringly obvious thing that plagued Communicore though was that a lot of its technology already became outdated by the 90s, as much of it became updated over time outside EPCOT. Even though a shocking number of the technology on display did make its way into homes or other theme park attractions. Accurate technological displays were not enough to keep the overall experience from feeling outdated, or even boring.
In 1994 Communicore closed down to make way for...
Innoventions, much like Communicore before it, is a portmanteau: Invention + Innovation = Innovention. And indeed, the original goal of Innoventions was to showcase all of those. Unlike the sponsors of the past that got cold feet of showcasing new technology, a whole bunch of sponsors went on to sign up for the Innoventions deal. Let's showcase a few notable attractions that filled up the original Innoventions as well as the design changes done.
Unlike Communicore, which was an open air, natural designed experience, Innoventions windows were covered in darkness to bring a bright neon futuristic look to the experience.
The longest lasting Communicore exhibit to make its way into Innoventions was Centorium, which was slimmed down as a temporary shopping exhibit to make way for the MouseGears store. Mousegears was notable for having one of the original set pieces from Journey into Imagination: Dreamfinder's flying ship. Meanwhile, another Communicore leftover, SMRT-1 was moved to the Concourse Steakhouse at the Contemporary until he was removed due to technical issues. There's a rumor that he fell which caused damage to his base.
Innoventions had a Bill Nye exhibit during the height of the popular TV series that many a 90s and 2000s kid experienced in their science class. Bill Nye provided an introduction to what Innoventions (that being inventions + innovations, not the attraction) are, the clouds of doubt that plague creativity, and how to get over self doubt in a fun and impressive way. Bill Nye was used a lot in advertising materials and was sort of a mascot to the original experience.
There was Alec Tronic, an animatronic utilizing the bare endoskeleton format that was popular with Disney at the time to showcase their new fleet of animatronic technology. Now animatronics could move in a fluid way that was similar to humans, it was important to show this was actually advanced technology, and not actors in makeup and costumes.
There was also a large SEGA arcade, which became one of the main, if not the main, selling point of Innoventions. Complete with up and coming games that the public did not have access to, including a rumored beta of the infamous cancelled game Sonic Xtreme, due to the discovery of a Sonic Xtreme poster in footage. If you want a full walk-through of what the arcade offered, Badnik Mechanic has a wonderful video on it.
There was also the Walt Disney Imagineering Labs, which showcased VR prototypes that would become the basis of DisneyQuest.
There was also the Motorola exhibit which had a pretty cool (though currently dated) animatronic preshow featuring a robot fortune teller.
One of the most interesting areas was Disney's Internet Zone, an area to help kids understand the internet as well to advertise the failed Disney Go website. This area had a game called Toon Tag which would eventually give birth to the concept that became ToonTown Online. Toon Tag had guests control Mickey, Minnie, Donald or Goofy in a game where they had to catch each other to tag them. Toon Tag made its way into the released ToonTown game as a trolly game. Recently some really clear footage of Toon Tag was found. A great find for the Toontown community to get a piece of its history and for readers here today to get a glimpse of what its game play was like.
There was also Club Cool/Ice Station Cool, originally themed to a faux glacier, this area served Coca-Cola drinks from around the world. The most infamous flavor being the bitter Beverly.
There were also several sponsored attractions from the likes of Apple, Lego, General Electric and more. Including showcases like Sony's Aibo and a reported Kindle-like device.
The music for Innoventions was done by Russel Brower, who used David Arkenstone's Papillon as a "flavor" to get approved. The soundtrack became a staple for the whole of EPCOT, as speakers were placed around Innoventions, where the great score could be heard all around. Embedded in the sidewalks around Innoventions were fiber optic lights making a variety of shapes, some more generic, some related to EPCOT. There was also the Fountain of Nations out front, called such because on the opening day of the fountain, water from various countries was poured in as a sign of togetherness. The fountain was programmed to move along several grand songs during various points of the day.
The layout and lack of light ended up too confusing for guests and so in 1999, Innoventions was redesigned with a simpler layout with a map on the entrance walls to prevent confusion. The experience was also given a new marketing campaign to tie it altogether. Innoventions: The Road to Tomorrow.
Innoventions also gained a new mascot with the re-brand. Those growing up with Disney Channel in the 90s and early 2000s may recognize him, his name is Tom Morrow 2.0. His name is a sort of weird multilayered Disney reference, referencing an animatronic from the Rocket to the Moon ride, which then got referenced in the Peoplemover attraction. I suppose the 2.0 is meant to signify he's newer than the classic animatronic? Anyway Disney Channel used this character for their Imagineer That bumpers as a fun way to interview various imagineers. Tom Morrow served the purpose of introducing guests to Innoventions and what it could offer in a preshow, as well as a kinetic/directional element, as a Tom Morrow animatronic can be found sitting in directional poles as well as the exit.
Despite the need for a new layout and marketing, Innoventions was a huge success, so big in fact that Disneyland's team asked to make a clone as soon as work was under way for their late 90's Tomorrowland makeover. Finally, at last, the theater that once held Carousel of Progress and America Sings can have a proper attraction.
The Disneyland attraction was a bit of a mix between the original Innoventions and the Road to Tomorrow design wise. The attraction utilized both stories of the Carousel building to host a variety of sponsored exhibits. The Disneyland attraction also had a mascot: Tom Morrow 1.0, who reused a mold from the Timekeeper attraction at Disney World. Now the joke with Tom Morrow 2.0 is even more confusing.
The most unique part about Disneyland's Innoventions was that it hosted the Innoventions Dream Home, a spiritual successor to Monsanto's House of the Future. The attraction ended up being cloned to EPCOT's Innoventions and was renamed to The House of Innoventions. Disneyland's also had an interactive Stitch attraction, utilizing new technology that was a part of other shows, like Turtle Talk and Monster's Inc Laugh Floor.
Innoventions had a strong lineup of sponsors, ever changing technology within the sponsors and Disney, and immense popularity across both coasts. On paper, Innoventions seemed like a sure thing to become a long running popular attraction.
But it wasn't.
The Road of Tomorrow is Disheveled
Over time, sponsors went in and out of the attraction's agreement until there was very little left. There's a variety of reasons why this happened. The main one proposed being the rise of the internet. Internet's popularity caused many sponsors to realize that using it as a tool to showcase their new, upcoming technologies was a lot easier. Sure there was still a barrier to showcase the tech hands-on with the internet. However, videos can be used to create detailed showcases what new tech looks like and how to use it. It is also a lot easier to do a product showcase and keep it updated online as well. Having to continuously move the new technology to EPCOT or Disneyland for product demonstrations was both expensive and time-consuming. Why move tech to Disney to show it off when you can do it easier "at home"?
The internet also made it a lot easier to search what harmful things companies were doing behind closed doors. So if Disney allowed a controversial company, such as Nestle for example, to sponsor an attraction there would be bad press against Disney and larger fan outcry compared to the (mostly) more secluded 1990s.
The second was financial crises causing it to be expensive to showcase in EPCOT. SEGA being the most notable example of a sponsor that had severe money losses that caused them to cease showcases past the Dreamcast era (the Dreamcast arcade was significantly down-scaled from the original arcade for similar reasons). The financial crisis of 2008 also caused financial troubles to various companies that would have made them more wary of the costs of signing a contract just to promote some products.
The third is a bit more conspiracy-ish, but the cold feet that companies originally had in the 80s to showcase technologies in fear that rivals may steal ideas possibly never fully went away.
Finally, for Disney lead attractions such as Imagineering Labs and Internet Zone, it's possible a similar reasoning to the lack of updates to DisneyQuest happened. Which is that it was deemed easier and more impressive for new technologies to be displayed in actual, tried and true Disney rides and attractions, rather than small areas meant to showcase new tech. Plus the chances of guests revisiting the ride or attraction is greater than revisiting something like DisneyQuest or Innoventions, even with routine changes done.
If you were wondering about Disney's part of all this, according to a reputable insider, they really did try to get all the big tech firms to sign on for years. Not just within Innoventions, but EPCOT as a whole. None of the firms want to. Thus why any remaining attraction sponsors within EPCOT and Innoventions were some of the original sponsors (for example, General Motors sponsored Test Track ever since it was a dark ride) or from more traditional industries. You won't see the likes of Apple, Tesla, Google, etc. in EPCOT anymore.
However, Disney themselves are also seen as slightly an issue, as all the drunk people doing the drinking around the world challenge are also believed to be a reason why companies don't want to be associated with EPCOT anymore. Which is why there was a big push to introduce more kid friendly properties (Frozen and Ratatouille, for example) within the World Showcase recently.
Towards the end of Innoventions' life, all the cool tech showcases were replaced by stuff one would see in a general field trip or elementary school lesson. Stuff like The Great Piggy Bank Adventure and Where's the Fire?, which were not only a far cry from the past of the attraction, but also very much not the Disney quality one would expect. A failure across the board.
Things were a lot worse over at Disneyland's Innoventions, where a lot of it became abandoned, Tom Morrow 1.0 was put under a curtain, and the space became exclusively for meet n greets with Marvel and Star Wars characters.
In fact, EPCOT was lucky to have two saving graces that really made it stand out towards the end: the aforementioned Club Cool and Sum of all Thrills, which was a spiritual successor to Communicore's EXPO Robotics, Compute a Coaster, and DisneyQuest's Cyberspace Mountain. This ride had guests program a coaster on a touchscreen then ride their creation on a KUKA arm that was attached to a simulator pod. This ride solved issues with all three of its predecessors: EXPO robotics guests could see the robots, but never truly interact with them, Compute a Coaster guests could build a coaster, but never truly ride it, Cyberspace Mountain guests could build and ride a coaster, but the simulator setup made many riders motion sick. Sum of all Thrills was so beloved by fans, that its argued if the ride became stand alone, separate from Innoventions, it would still be open and would be considered a top five experience at EPCOT.
However, even with the declined state, everything at Innoventions still was entertaining for everyone. But then the Habit Heroes attacked.
Habit Zeroes
Fair warning, this section deals with heavy topics.
Habit Heroes was an attraction dedicated to healthy eating habits and how to avoid bad habits. Sounds pretty simple, and hey, EPCOT had an attraction like that in the past so its a perfect fit. Plus during the time, there was a big push by the Obama administration for healthy meals at schools, which brought forward a large health wave across America. So perfect timing too.
But then the contents of the ride were discovered. See the Habit Heroes, as per the title, are a group of super heroes that fight bad habit themed villains. For example, The Snacker, who represented over eating unhealthy foods. The appearances of the villains, however, were deemed demeaning and bullying to those of different body types. Many articles from psychologists, physicians, body image activists, parents, etc., were written critiquing Disney for the negative portrayals of individuals with body issues. There was especially fear the attraction could raise bullying towards the obese or cases of eating disorders and suicides in children who get a bad message from the attraction whether they were obese or not.
"We're appalled to learn that Disney, a traditional hallmark of childhood happiness and joy, has fallen under the shadow of negativity and discrimination. It appears that Disney now believes that using the tool of shame, favored so much by today's healthcare corporations, is the best way to communicate with children. Disney, in partnering with Blue Cross/Blue Shield, has taken the side of the bullies." - The National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance.
"A little Dance, Dance Revolution and some broccoli spears ought to clear everything up, right. Here's to Disney's reinforcing society's most hateful negative obesity stereotyping." - Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, a bariatric surgeon in Ottawa, Canada, on his WeightyMatters blog.
Not only that, but the handling of other, non-junk food related, bad habits were also critiqued. One super villain was Control Freak, who represented video game addictions, which was too small of an area to discuss as unhealthy addictions can branch out into other areas (for example, other forms of media and drugs). There was also Insecura, who had an insecure body image, which was not a bad habit at all and was critiqued for being too distasteful.
The attraction was reworked with consultation from health experts, but the damage was already done and the attraction closed not too long afterwards, but not before the Habit Heroes made an appearance in a Marvel comic. It's believed by some Disney fans that this attraction's failures may be the core reason why Wonders of Life, the health pavilion, became the future spot of the more generic Play pavilion and why new park specific IPs haven't been created much in America since then.
The closure of Innoventions and future plans
On May 19th 2019, Innoventions closed for a grand future vision of EPCOT. The original plan was for bits and pieces of Innoventions to be given new segmented areas, one for the gift shop, one for a new restaurant, etc. While Innoventions West was demolished for a new festival center. However, the COVID pandemic cancelled or postponed the majority of the EPCOT plans and the structures had to be rebuilt to become Communicore Plaza and Communicore Hall, with a rooftop garden. A chain of events that gains groans from many EPCOT fans who realize the error of demolishing then rebuilding buildings that should have never been demolished to begin with.
Meanwhile one of the "bits" did reach completion, as Mousegears moved and became the Creations Shop. Creations was initially critiqued as being bland compared to its predecessors, but since it has opened, Creations has had some really cool makeovers for recent festivals.
Meanwhile the core interactivity features of Innoventions seemed to move to Wonders of Life pavilion to become the Play Pavilion, which...may or may not be cancelled.
Life as an EPCOT fan is hard.
Meanwhile, Disneyland's Innoventions became Star Wars Launch Bay, a way to meet all your favorite Star Wars characters. However the opening of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge makes the space redundant, so it too needs a proper replacement.
If you do wish to experience what an Innoventions attraction looked like during its peak today, visit the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, where they host an updated version of IBM's exhibit that was hosted at Innoventions. Don't have the money? Check out Martin's Vids on Innoventions to make yourself very sad. Or boot up your favorite Toontown fork and play some Toon Tag, that always works too.
Time will tell what the future lies for interactive exhibits at both parks, but one thing's for certain. It won't be Innoventions.
EDIT: Here's a fun little bonus, Innoventions B-roll with Toon Tag footage! EDIT 2: Fixed images, minor details

So: In honor of and inspired by these mission updates posts, I want to say what I've don't in the time I could've been on my mission. - Saw my family and friends on the east coast again, some multiple times - Started working at Starbucks - Got that free Starbucks therapy 🤑 - Met my wonderful partner - Became official with said partner - Quit Starbucks - Had to stop therapy - Got the opportunity to work in daycare - Realized how mistreated I was while living with my mom - After one last argument with my uncle, decided to move in with my partner - Stopped talking to my mom so much - Moved from partime to full time and got my own classroom at my daycare job - Got into a community theater Christmas play - Asked my partners parents blessing to marry them and my partner did the same - Made a plan to buy a house by the time I'm 30 - Gave my mom some cookies to ease the pain of a recent breakup - Started therapy again - Started being ok with the idea of mending the fence with my mom
And now I'm currently gearing up to have my first Valentine's day with my partner (and just a partner in general) and am trying to better myself not for the glory of god but for myself and my loved ones.

Greetings all,
Anyone have some recommendations on companies who could look at some of our dimmers in the theater. We had a set that got really hot for no reason, and we replaced the fuse, but we are concerned as they are fairly old and probably not had any preventative maintenance done.

2023.01.30 20:37 F4UDash4 DCS - M.A.C. - Vietnam?

Forgive / indulge me... this is a bit of "a stream of consciousness" post.
A couple of days ago I ran across a mention of the long delayed DCS "Modern Air Combat", the apparent successor to Flying Cliffs with somewhat simpler aircraft. There's a lot of ambiguity on what M.A.C. would be, even from ED... so it's all guess work at this point.
But it got me to thinking about what would make M.A.C. worthwhile? What they could do with such a project that would make me buy it?
The answer, for me, is to make it (in part at least) a full fledged Vietnam Air Combat sim. To do this they would have to make a large number of aircraft flyable at a reasonable price (hence the lower fidelity "FC3" model). These would include (but not limited to) the F-105D/G, F-4B/C/D/E/J, F-8E/J, A-4C/E, A-1D/E/H, MiG-17F, MiG-21PF. One way that lower fidelity aircraft systems fit well in a Vietnam scenario is that in many cases the full capabilities of some aircraft were not used in that war anyway. Full fidelity air to air radars are not a must because BVR shots were rarely if ever taken in Vietnam. Day time bombing in good visibility was done without the use of any sophisticated fire control (except in some later aircraft like the F-111 and A-7). I verified this latter point with several F-105 pilots recently, they stated that bombing was done solely with the "flight computer between the pilots ears". A sticking point in adding the F-105 to the sim has always been documentation of systems, for a M.A.C. F-105 this wouldn't be an issue.
This idea would also necessitate, of course, a Vietnam map. The map should be compatible with both M.A.C. and full DCS. As for the aircraft... well I don't know how ED plans to handle that. If they're available only in a standalone M.A.C. product it would be a must buy (for me) only if it were offered as I have described, IE a full fledged Vietnam sim or similar. I could also be enticed if it were instead a late 60's / early 70's Middle East sim with an Egypt/Israel/Jordon/Syria map. Or if it were a late 70's/ early 80's (with appropriate aircraft) "Fulda Gap" map I would also consider it, but that is less enticing than Vietnam or Middle East. If M.A.C is offered as a module within DCS it would still need to include more than just some new airframes for me to have much interest.

If M.A.C ever does release there has to be more to it than just simpler aircraft for a lower price, there needs to be theatebattleground that hasn't been done yet in DCS that will create some excitement in the community.

2023.01.30 18:16 richarizard What to See in NYC: February 2023 Edition

I think about retirement a lot. (Lol.) And one of the things I’m pretty sure I would do if suddenly gifted the luxury of time is go to different events and make full use of what this city has to offer. Concerts, dance performances, dramatic plays, musical theater, art exhibits, all of it.
Something I’ve always wanted to do was map out what one month of that would look like. Since I don’t have the time (or money or even energy, for that matter) to live out this fantasy, this subreddit seems like the best place to actually share this list.
If this is a total waste of online real estate, kindly downvote and move on. But if anyone actually finds this helpful, let me know and March can be next! I just hated the idea of making this and then never actually sharing it anywhere.

I think the music used in the advertisement was from an actual song, but not sure. It was a saxophone song that played during an advertisement for Midnight Movie Madness back in the 80’s. It also featured a long-haired animated person holding a guitar. Def remember it being played at East Coast United Artists Theaters whenever we went to see a movie.
