I had a wonderful time recently working the red carpet for Disney California Adventure Cars Land opening event. I interviewed tons of amazing people including Bob Iger, Tom Staggs, Andy Garcia, John Ratzenberger and many many others. Those interviews are coming soon…

But meanwhile, see how I interviewed (or didn’t) John Lasseter from Pixar.

It was ‘memorable.’

See? I can’t imagine why he wouldn’t want to talk to me. Clearly I am totally normal and was taking the whole thing seriously. But really John- You were the ONLY A-lister who didn’t stop by and chat…. so, I think this deserves you to hire me to do voice work on your next movie.

Seems totally fair.

Family Field Trip: Angelo and Vinci’s

There is a restaurant in Downtown Fullerton (Sorry out-of-CA readers,more OC talk) called Angelo’s and Vinci’s. I have been coming to this place since I was a kid, and I still adore it. It is a feast for the eyes. The entire interior is a cornucopia (and I rarely don’t use that word often) of [...]
