Inside the Mouse Castle with 'Real Steel,' 'The Muppets' and Bill Farmer

A funny thing happened on the way to the robot fight. I discovered a video camera.

If you read my blog or follow my YouTube channel, you know from time to time I dabble in video editing. I've done voice overs for a number of movie and home video reviews during the last year or so, but this week I decided to do something a bit different and step in front of the camera.

It wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.

I call the results "Inside the Mouse Castle" and this week I'm taking a look at the Oscar-nominated (for Best Visual Effects) Real Steel, the home video release of The Muppets, and a special anniversary for the voice of Goofy, Bill Farmer.

This weekend, I'm taking my camera to Disneyland to help my good friends at MiceChat celebrate their seventh anniversary. The highlight of the weekend will be a Saturday breakfast at the ESPN Zone with a host of Disney celebrities including Imagineer Bob Gurr (if it's on wheels at Disneyland, Bob probably designed it), Margaret Kerry (the original live model for Tinker Bell) and Susan Egan (the voice of Meg in Hercules and the original Belle of Beauty and the Beast on Broadway). Whether on video or in print, count on seeing my experiences here on The Mouse Castle very soon.

And since you now know what I look like, if you happen to be at Disneyland this weekend, be sure to keep an eye out for me. I'm partial to Star Tours, the Haunted Mansion and the dirty vodka martini ride at the Cove Bar.

See you real soon.
