Tink’s *~*~* Links: food, film and fun!

© Copyright 2010 Tink *~*~*


030720102678-WDW-EPCOT-FandG-Fest-sign🙂 Hey, I’m back from my whirlwind weekend in Walt Disney World, where I made a leisurely tour of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and EPCOT, watched three of my “sistahs” cross the finish line in the Disney Princess Half Marathon, and mobile blogged the entire time.

You can find a lot of pictures here on My Mobile Adventures *~*~*, but I also posted unique content to the blog’s Facebook page and to Twitter as well (the tweeted pictures are actually over at TwitPic). In addition to the mobile blogging and tweeting, I took a ton more that are still in the camera, including a few lucky shots of the new baby gorilla aka the “girl-illa” who was just recently born at DAK. I hope to get those up on the blog shortly, possibly this weekend in time for Camera Critters.

In the meantime, I’ve been catching up on a little reading. Here are some things which caught my eye, tickled my fancy or provided food for thought:

SeaWorld, trainer’s family seek to prevent release of video of fatal killer-whale accident

Killerwhales_jumpingThe family of the trainer who was killed by an orca at SeaWorld is seeking an injunction against the public release of SeaWorld’s surviellance video, which captured the incident.

“Use of this video will do nothing more than further sensationalize a tragic event and traumatize our family,” said Charles LoVerde, the spokesman. “Some members of the news media have shown restraint and sensitivity during this difficult time, but many others have not. The conduct of some members of the press has been disgraceful. Our family has a right to heal in private, and we once again appeal to the media to recognize the terrible pain we are experiencing and give us a small measure of respect and privacy.”

My reaction: I hope that any web hosting company, YouTube, Flickr, etc. would immediately remove any photos or videos depicting this tragedy once they were aware of them, and also that the hosting company would deal harshly with the person who posted it. I also hope that anyone reading this who sees such a thing online will immediately inform the host and insist upon it’s removal. If you cannot figure out who the host is, email me and I’ll help track it down (belltinkr at g mail dot com)

It’s morbid, unnecessary and just plain mean to post such a thing. And as we all know, mean people suck. Karma doesn’t like them very much, either….

Mmmmm, Disney Food!

The Daily Disney offers this recipe from the Grand Floridian Cafe at Walt Disney World –

Chocolate-Crusted Key Lime Pie!

Personally, I generally do not care for key lime pie, but I think the chocolate crusting thing would go a long way toward helping me to appreciate it 😉

Prince of Persia is a popular series of video games, available for Playstation 3, XBOX 360 and Windows XP (affiliate links lead to Amazon.com). Now it’s a film by Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Pictures, scheduled for release in May 2010. Love the Aladdinesque theme – poor street waif becomes prince. I definitely want to see this -part film, part video game, all Gyllenhaal all the time! <3 Here's the official site for the film - Walt Disney Pictures | Prince of Persia. And looky, you can Become A Fan on Facebook!. And finally – feast yourself on the extended trailer (Subscribers – if you don’t see a video right below these words, click through to the blog to view it):

If the YouTube version is gone or won’t play, you can try watching it here here

I was googling around for something, but you know how it goes – click a picture here, or an intriguing title there, and suddenly I found myself face-to-face with Disney board games! I didn’t even know there was such a thing. How cool are these? (yes they are affiliate links, no they won’t bite you!). There’s something called the Magic Kingdom Game (nope, I’ve never heard of it either), and also the Splash Mountain Edition of SORRY! in a collectible tin.

That’s it for Tink’s *~*~* Links this week. After I unwind from my whirlwind weekend trip, I’ll get back to regular posting. Enjoy!

Tink’s *~*~* Links: soup, slumber, and something cool in between

© Copyright 2010 Tink *~*~*


I’ve been doing some reading in my RSS reader lately. Here are a few Disney-related links I hoarded to share with you all.

I’ve decided to call this post “Tink’s *~*~* Links” just because I like things that rhyme 🙂 And who knows, maybe this shall become a trend! On with the sharing….

First up –

Curry Butternut Soup from Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – made by The Disney Chick!

I’ve been reading her for a while, and tweeting with her on occasion. The Disney Chick’s definitely got it going on when it comes to trying Disney recipes and sharing them with us. I’ve had this soup at Boma a few times and it’s mmm-mmm-GOOD! This is going to be a must-try for me – I’ve got her post preserved in my Instapaper account!

A from-the-air comparison of Disney parks

I dropped in on the Imagineering Disney site last week. Some former cast members number amongst the site’s contributors, and I often find their material intriguing. This time, it’s a side-by-side comparison of some aerial views of Disney parks across the globe. Check it out!

Imagineering Disney – Comparing Disney parks from the air

Here’s another cool thing I found last week while browsing around.

Waking Sleeping Beauty

Documentary about the second golden age of Disney filmaking. There has been a TON of chatter on Twitter about this in the past week or so. Get ready to be very, VERY excited!

“The real heartbeat of this company was, is and will always be the film-making business” – Roy Disney

Everyone looks so YOUNG! Roy, Tim Burton, John Lasseter, Katzenberg, Eisner… guest appearances by a mariachi band (maybe the one from EPCOT?) and Gumby!

If for any reason the YouTube video is not visible above, you can see the trailer at Apple.com – which says, “in theaters March 26, 2010”
