After a recent trip to the Disneyland Resort, I returned home with a little motivation (and a promise made to a friend) to put this new episode together. I video taped this evening at ElecTRONica during a trip last October. Since Disney has announced that they will be replacing ElecTRONica with Mad T Party later this year, I thought now was a good time to release this video with the hope that it would get people to experience ElecTRONica before it's gone. Enjoy!
