June 2010 is Cast Member Appreciation Month
The Disney Parks are truly amazing pieces of art and entertainment but there is an often-overlooked portion that needs to be given some thanks. It is not an attraction, marvel of architecture, new technology, or animatronic. Quite the contrary, this piece of the park really is a living, breathing, attraction in itself. It is the wonderful Disney CAST-MEMBER, and June of 2010 is Cast Member Appreciation Month at The Magic in Pixels. Without the Cast-Members, the Disney Parks would just be another place to go to blow off some steam and have fun, but the Cast-Members personally, and often thanklessly, transform Walt's Dream into what we all know and love today. Day after day, these dedicated individuals go on-stage in the heat, rain, and crowds to add another dimension to the experience. By performing their roles with enthusiasm and vigor, they can personalize your experience into a one-of-a-kind magical moment and make your children feel as if they are on top of the world.

Farewell Harry Kalas - The Voice of the Phillies

Anyone who knows me at all knows how I feel about my beloved Phillies. Today, Phillies phans everywhere lost a true legend, a piece of their collective soul, their voice. Hall of Fame broadcaster Harry Kalas collapsed and died in the broadcast booth in Washington, DC, prior to the Phillies game versus the Washington Nationals. The Phillies have lost their voice, a part of their identity.

My love of the Phillies started in 1985 when I was eight years old. Players like Mike Schmidt, Juan Samuel, and Steve Carlton inspired me to want to play but it was the voice and enthusiasm of Harry Kalas that made me love the game. Harry had a style and delivery like no other and you could instantly see how much he truly loved the game. Harry's wonderful rapport and chemistry with Richie Ashburn brought them out of the booth and into your home.

I listened to Harry during Harry's induction into the Hall of Fame, his tribute and eulogy of Richie Ashburn in 1997, and his tribute to America and baseball following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

After 24 seasons of watching the Phillies with diehard enthusiasm and faithful, I finally got to hear Harry Kalas call the final out of the World Series in 2008 as they Phillies finally won the World Series that I had been waiting so long for them to win. 24 years of baseball equates to almost 3,900 baseball games and for once, finally, I got to hear Harry cry out, "Swing and a miss, struck him out.... the Phillies are 2008 World Champions of baseball!"

I wish we could bring him back, just like anyone wishes they could bring back a loved one. Harry felt like he was one of my family. I loved listening to him and I couldn't wait until Spring Training every year after a long, cold winter so I could hear Harry call a Grapefruit League game.

Harry was certainty in a world of change. As I grew older and my life situation changed from year to year, as Presidents changed, as economies rose and fell, and entire countries came and went, I could always count on hearing Harry broadcast a Spring Training game and know that all was right as long as we have baseball in the world. I always felt like Harry was speaking directly to me, as did millions of others in the listening area.

I got to meet Harry one time, briefly, in Clearwater, Florida, about ten years ago. It was a pleasure to speak with him and he was a gracious and genuine person. He even signed a baseball bat for me. At the time, his signature was just one of about twenty-five or so signatures that I was able to collect. Now, that bat is all about Harry's signature with twenty-four others.

I write this post with tears in my eyes and heaviness in my heart. With his death, I feel like I lost a dear friend, a family member, a loved one. Now that he is gone, he becomes even more immortal than he was in life. The Phillies have lost their voice and baseball will never be the same. Thanks for the memories, Harry, we all loved you and will miss you. Your legend will live on forever, as long as there is baseball in the world.

So long, old friend.

Cinderella Castle Fantasy HDR


This fantastic image of Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom combines a series of photographs of varying exposures, combines them with HDR creation software, then tops it off with a touch of Photoshop magic for one amazing image. Quite a bit of time went into the creation of this beautiful scene, with one person commenting that, "it has an Annie Liebowitz look it to". Complement accepted for sure.

Sir William, King of Fantasyland

Once upon a time there was a Sword named Excalibur which was lodged in an anvil in an enchanted place called Fantasyland. The stone on which the anvil rested was inscribed, "Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rich and wise ruler born of England".



Along came the young price, Sir William, full of vim and vigor and in his youthful exuberance did he try to free said sword from it's prison of iron and stone. But, alas, it was not to be.


Even with his father, Lord Timoteo, by his side, young Sir William could not free the sword, despite his most passionate attempts. Clearly, all of the muscle power the young men could amass would not be enough to release Excalibur from it's prison.


Along came Lord Timoteo's father, whom Sir William doth moniker as the Mighty Pop-Pop, and try as they might, they three nobelmen could not manage to retrieve the mighty Excalibur. This was going to take more than sheer muscle and might to solve. What to do? What to do?


After wishing on a star with his tender heart, the sweet and loving Sir William got his wish in the form of a fairy named Valerie, who wore a magical white straw hat and carried a magic wand that made bubbles with every wave. Could Valerie grant Sir William the magical powers needed to release Excalibur from it's place of confinement? Did Sir William possess the purity and innocence to free the Sword from the Stone?


With some magic words and little bit of pixie dust, something incredible started to happen... the sword began to lift from the anvil! All hail Sir William, the new King of Fantasyland!

Off to the 'World!
Hey all, just a quick note to let you know that I am off to the 'World with my son and father for a few days. A much needed vacation, the highlight of this trip will be the Phillies vs. Braves Spring Training game at Disney's Wide World of Sports. Accompanying us to the game will be my grandfather, making four generations of guys in our family catching a Phillies game in Walt Disney World. It doesn't get any better than that.

Stay tuned for news and updates!

The Joys of Chaning Servers
Just a quick note to anyone who noticed that The Magic in Pixels has been a bit "wonky" the past few days...

I had to make a sudden and unexpected change in hosting companies with very little notice and no time to debug and test the site on the new server before going live. Needless to say, things don't always go as smoothly as planned. Thanks to some nice help and support from friends of TMIP, most of the issues have now been resolved and we are back to operating as close to normal as possible.

If you are in need of quality hosting with a small outfit where you can get some help when you need it, I recommend you check out Krypton Hosting and see if they have a solution that fits your needs.

Thanks for your patience during the transition period and have a magical week.

TMIP Forums upgraded to Version 2.0
I just recently upgraded The Magic in Pixels Disney Photo Forums to Simple Machines Forum version 2.0/RC1 and all in all it went pretty smoothly.

The forums have a slick new look and some new functionality, not to mention a major new feature coming very soon, just for members of the TMIP Forum. More and more addons and upgrades are coming all the time, so if you are not a member of the TMIP community, you should come on over and register for the forums right away.

Thanks to all of my loyal participants for being patient through the upgrade process; I can promise you that the forum will remain a work in progress and be subject to constant upgrades new features to keep it fresh and growing at the breakneck pace that it has been.

As always, feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Tom Sawyer Island is a hidden yet very exciting portion of the Magic Kingdom where you can get some great views of local attractions. Here is Big Thunder Mountain at Walt Disney World as seen from the edge of TSI. I really love the beautiful colors in the rocks and the sky. A very peaceful and scenic image.

Spooky Abandonment


I recently obtained a new plugin for Adobe Photoshop CS4 which will turn any color photo into a vintage black and white image. Through a careful mix of layers and blending, the resulting image is as shown. I think the treatment suits the image quite perfectly. Got any other ideas for this treatment (besides the Hollywood Tower Hotel, which is a given)? By adding the black and white to a new layer and changing the opacity of the black and white layer, some of the underlying color was allowed to blend through, creating a new image with a spooky tone.

TMIP to donate percentage of sales at MagicMeets to Dream Team Project


Tim Devine, photographer and owner of TheMagicInPixels.com, has announced that he will donate a portion of his sales at Fred Block's 2008 MagicMeets to the DisneyWorldTrivia.com Dream Team Project.

"As a father of a very healthy two year old, I know first hand the magic and thrill of a Disney vacation, as seen through my son's eyes and mine," says Tim. "I have also seen how the Disney magic can bring a smile to the faces of ill children as well and that really inspires me to want to do what I can to help. I just think it's the right thing to do to try to give that magic to someone else who may not be as fortunate."

The Magic In Pixels will have a large selection of matted 8 x 10" prints, 16 x 20" prints, and photo CDs. Additionally, orders for 16 x 20" prints may be placed in advance through TheMagicInPixels.com or at the table at MagicMeets. He will donate on-the-spot a percentage of the sales that are made at his table by the end of the Auction that day.

This is a wonderful opportunity for MagicMeets attendees to purchase some beautiful art for their homes that will also help a worthy cause!

The Dream Team Project thanks Tim Devine for his generous contribution!

New Banner on TMIP
I am sure by now you have noticed the stunning new banner that is featured on this site. Well, time to give a bit of props to the designer. Thanks to Jeff Pepper (2719 Hyperion), there is a new banner and logo for The Magic in Pixels. Jeff is also the owner of JP Graphics and Design and he has designed custom graphics for Grumpy's Hollow, ImagiNerding, and the cover for Lou Mongello's Main Street CD. If you contact him, he can design some stuff for you too at a very reasonable price.

Great job, Jeff, much appreciated.

Spaceship Earth - Then and Now
There is a new article on The Magic in Pixels titled, Spaceship Earth - Then and Now. The article takes you on a scene by scene tour of the attraction at Epcot, pointing out the new vs. the old and some points of interested in between. To read the entire article, head over to THE MAGIC IN PIXELS and click on the articles link. Here is a brief teaser of the article...





EXTERIOR

THEN



NOW



Well, it's clear to see that the classic, pure look of Spaceship Earth has returned to Epcot. Gone is the Mickey wand and "Epcot" wording in favor of the pure geosphere in it's perfect round form. There are new signs for the attraction on the legs as you enter, however other than that, not too much has changed except for some new palm trees on each side of the attraction.
