Epic of the Day #2105

Jacob decided to pick up the game Epic Mickey today, and we’ve been playing it nonstop, trading off since this afternoon. For a Disney aficionado like Jacob the game is perfect – it’s full of esoteric references to Disney history, and lets you explore a peculiar post-apocalyptic rendition of Disneyland. If I were to play it alone, most of its niceties would go over my head, but Jacob is eager to point out the clever things it does, which makes it quite fun.

The song Mickey whistles in Steamboat Willie is one of those melodies with incredible amounts of nostalgic power. I hear it rarely, but it’s always nice returning to it.
