  1. In my AP Physics textbook, a picture of Steel Dragon is shown, along with a caption that says the ride's vertical drop is 95.3 meters long. Alright, I can understand an ordinary textbook making this mistake, but this is a college-level physics textbook. The authors obviously should know that vertical equals ninety degrees, which Steel Dragon's drop is clearly not. There's even a picture that obviously shows the drop being non-vertical. How the hell do physics professors make this kind of mistake?
  2. Oh, how I love the BBC Proms. This is Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez, a beautiful Latin piece. I really admire that black bassoon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vwZAkfLKK8
  3. I saw the Progressive Nation tour on the 24th with my friend Ryan. We mainly went for Dream Theater but were pleasantly surprised with Zappa Plays Zappa.
  4. My school orchestra played Shost 10. I absolutely loved it. As for Barber's Adagio for Strings, it is massively overrated, in my opinion. Another overrated piece is Ravel's Bolero. Even Ravel can't stand it, and he was the composer. One of Ravel's best compositions was his arrangement of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. This is the first of four parts (I'm sure you can find the rest): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_98452AxFI
  5. My AP Psychology summer homework is to read 40 Studies That Changed Psychology and write a summary of each study. Wonderful. Anyway, on the 36th study (I'm almost there, come on!), I read an interesting sentence: The book was originally written in 1992 (although I'm reading the fifth edition, printed in 2005), but did Batman ever have the height record? I think that they were referring to Superman. And mega-roller coaster made me chuckle.
  6. Well, I was in 8th grade the last time I rode it. I'm now in 11th. Considering that I've matured more, it would make sense if the ride felt easier on me.
  7. Goodwin is a wonderful jazz comopser, but I'm afraid that he is outside the limits of this thread. Festive Overture is wonderful. Right now, one of my favorite pieces is Il Pini di Roma (The Pines of Rome) by Respighi.
  8. ...I know. That's why I mentioned them in the first place. And heck, my avatar is the cover of the Catch-22 version of Keasbey Nights. That's pretty awesome that your friend is taught by an ex-Catch drummer, though. It'd be amazing to have, say, Jim Conti give me sax lessons (I've played for six years). Anyway, back to theme parks. Mission: SPACE was running more intensely than a couple of years ago.
  9. Every time I hear that comment, I smile. I feel like more people should be exposed to the greatness that is Streetlight Manifesto. Catch-22 is awesome as well.
  10. Harry Potter won't be done for another year. It says coming in 2010, but I suspect a summer/fall opening at the earliest. You won't have to worry about HRRR, though.
  11. disneymoc - unfortunately, no. I didn't have a waterproof camera (or a waterproof case). dragsterfan420 - to be honest, it feels like Islands of Adventure doesn't make updates very often. I suppose that the others do. Universal has packed in a solid selection of rides over the past five years.
  12. Soon is a relative term, and hey, it's just a marketing technique. Universal wants more guests so they can rake in more money. If you talk to a staff member at Universal, they will tell you that they have no idea when it's going to open and that you should check the website for any information. I'm not sure whether or not they were instructed to say that. My best bet for an opening would be the end of July.
  13. Driving down I-95. At an inaugural gala with friends after Barack Obama's inauguration. I can't believe I was there. I'm the second from the left.
  14. I rode it when I was 7 or 8 and didn't appreciate the ride at all. Now that I am about ten years older and more mature, I was able to understand the ride and the humor...I just thought that Ellen wasn't funny. No worries. I'm glad that you like it; the attraction is highly underrated.
