The Haunted Mansion - Grim Grinning Ghosts [Ukulele Cover]
An embarrassing public attempt to teach myself to play ukulele and sing by covering a band for every letter of the alphabet.
The Haunted Mansion is not only my favorite ride at Disneyland, it’s in…like…my top 10 things, period. So I’m happy I got to learn how to (sorta) play the theme. Gives me a chance to do a bunch of weird jazz chords that aren’t really in fashion anymore, and gave me the chance to sing the word “etherealize,” which you don’t hear too often these days.
Apologies for lunging at you halfway through this video. Turns out I was sitting on some socks.
Movie Trailer of the Day: In Disney’s animated Wreck-It Ralph, John C. Reilly voices a video game baddie who no longer wants to be the villain, so he skips out on his 30-year gig in order to do good.
The film also features the voices of Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, and Sarah Silverman — and don’t miss the cameos by some famous video game villains. In theaters November 2.
My friends Raymond and Nancy work for Disney animation, and they’ve been working on this movie for a long time now. I’ve been hearing about it for months, and I’m stoked the trailer was finally released. The way I hear it, there are tons of amazing videogame cameos (Raymond got to talk to the dude who invented Dig Dug, for instance). Should be a good time.
***Edit: I just learned Raymond DID the voice of that zombie. Holy shit!***
I enjoyed the latest Winnie the Pooh movie way more than I expected to.
