HOLY SHIT someone got a picture of the exact spot in Pasta Piazza where we always used to sit. we liked this area because it was removed from the crowd. We used to sit in those red chairs right there all the time. This restaurant hasn't existed for 18 years; seeing this again truly made my mouth drop

looking at this photo, it's so generically disney. there's a bunch of stuff that when you think about it is quite weird (that iconic garbage can design, vague inspirational "work harder" posters hung from the ceiling like propaganda at a political convention, the carpeted wall, everything in 90s shades of purple)

Some thoughts on Utopia Show more

I never went to a single religious service as a child, not even once. but i did go to epcot.

these rides were my hymns. they told me everything was gonna turn out okay. they were a soothing, comforting, vaguely sleep inducing solemn drone that were tacitly carrying a whole lot of ideology. much of that ideology became deeply ingrained in my psyche the way that going to church would have imparted that ideology

consider the final lines of Spaceship Earth (the '94-07 version):

Since the dawn of recorded time, communication has revolutionized our lives and changed our world. We now have the ability and the responsibility to build new bridges of acceptance and co-operation between us; to create a better world for ourselves and our children as we continue our amazing journey aboard Spaceship Earth.

here's the actual recording. that's jeremy irons. I heard this weekly

epcot at the time was unabashedly Utopian. It was a place that said, hey, it's the mid to late 80s, we've got everything together, and the future's gonna be awesome!"

and there I am from 1999-2003ish hearing message all the time. to us living right next to disney with annual passes, epcot was like a national park. and its ideology, of how we are on the cusp of a vauge but profound future that we have every right to be proud of sparked my utopian (at the time) socdem ideology

the thing that sticks out the most is that when you're at disney all the time as a guest the disney brand is so normalized that it felt weirdly brandless. Like, the cups were just a decorative motif, not a walking advertisement for the soda that was in them. Every store was uniquely themed, but run by the same people, with the same namebadges.

basically, to grow up in disney is to grow up in a one-party benevolent dictatorship a la Josip Broz Tito

if you make a joke on Mastodon, no matter WHAT the content is, after 50+ boosts people will appear in the replies that take it completely at literal face value.

you could post "a man walks into a bar, says ouch!" and if it receives 50+ boosts, then you will begin seeing replies like "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN STEEL BAR PLACEMENT IS DEREGULATED BY PROFIT DRIVEN CROOKS!"

this theory is commonly known as Eugen's Gambit. and i love it.
