TOV 2016.2 Trapped on Two Springs with an Aussie during the Holidays

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 05:28:12 +0000

You guys havin' fun???

I'm back for a second show of 2016!  Just under the wire for the Holidays!!!

We start things out with a visit to Disney Springs to experience Starbright Holidays, then head to Epcot and find a duck with an Aussie, and wrap things up with the jingliest Jingle Cruise ever!

All of these experiences are tied together with a relaxing standup paddle board trip down the Wekiva River.

TOV 2016.1 Trapped in the Junkyard with a Strange Narrator

Sun, 01 May 2016 04:01:00 +0000

This is where I tell you what's in the episode so you don't have to listen.

It's been 11 years & most of you already know what to expect.  Me rambling, some mediocre audio in a theme park, and Jonathan Coulton. :)


Have fun!

TOV 137 Trapped Underwater in glittery spandex on the First of May

Fri, 01 May 2015 07:04:26 +0000

A quick and dirty "no-frills" podcast from the Magic Kingdom...  No frills and limited editing because I put it together when I was rushing to pack and hop on a plane to go to Disneyland...  (I'm typing this in Anaheim 12 hours later)

We go under the sea with our good friend Heather, and then sit in the shade and watch a parade in frontierland.

Have fun!

TOV 136 - Trapped with an old friend on their last day. - Updated

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 17:25:50 +0000

This week we head back in time to visit the Disney-MGM Studios Backlot Tour (yes, that's what I called it...) on its last day of operation. And then head to the MK to ride along with one of my new favorite Skippers on the Jungle Cruise! As an experiment, I recorded portions during my commute. Let me know what you think... I'm not sure if I like it, but I'm producing something.

Edited completely on Android.

TOV??? Really? Is it the First of May already??? I gues

Thu, 01 May 2014 05:01:45 +0000

It's the First of May!  It's like Earl's version of Groundhog Day.  If he sees his shadow, it's 12 more months of procrastination and no TOV editing, even though he's done plenty of recording... Hopefully it'll be overcast for multiple reasons, most importantly to lessen sunburn during First of May activities...

This episode includes lots of fun stuff from thte 2013 Cast Member Service Award party.

Have fun!  It was great putting it together! Believe it or not, I'm the most happy when I'm making the show... with the exception of being a Dad, because that's pretty cool too!

Sat, 25 Jun 2011 00:01:51 +0000

Hi everyone!

Last month I went to Pixar Weekends at Epcot where Jay Ward gave a talk about the Character Design of the cars in Cars 2.

Since Cars 2 is opening tonight, what better time to share it with you!  Sure it probably would've been better to have posted last month, but oh well... ;)

ToV130 - Trapped with Electric Lights and Thomas Edison

Sun, 08 Aug 2010 21:54:00 +0000

This episode marks the 5th Anniversary (more or less) of Trapped on Vacation, we're still the Longest Running Non-Commercial Disney Podcast on the Internet, and we'd like to thank you for listening and sticking with us for all of these years!  Without our listeners like you, I'd just be a guy talking to my self with a wife staring at him wondering what the hell I was doing.  So thanks for not making me look like an idiot.  Well... like more of an idiot I guess...

This week we head back in time with all new audio from the Opening Night Preview of the Main Street Electrical Parade at the Magic Kingdom.  Yes, that's how long it's been...  After that we head up north to Dearborn, MI and hear an original recording by Thomas Edison.  Without Edison's invention of the phonograph, I doubt you'd be hearing my voice today!  So thanks Mr. Edison!  (Also thanks for the lightbulbs in MSEP!)

Hope you enjoy it!  Have fun!

Good morning!  

Yes, morning...  I just edited a podcast in the morning drinking coffee instead of beer...  Weird!

Since it's the First of May, and I'm not at Disneyland for DPN Westfest '10 I just had to upload something!

This week we head back into the archives to 2006 and the first time that Jonathan Coulton's "First of May" made an appearance on TOV....  I take you along with myself, Jeff from Houston, and Patrick as we explore the Land Pavillion at Epcot. After that I hit IOA and mess with some Dino DNA!

TOV124 - Trapped in the Start of Season 5!!!

Tue, 15 Sep 2009 02:14:00 +0000

With less than a week before the baby is born, it's either now or never for Episode 124!!

It's another new year for Trapped on Vacation!  Whoda thunk I'd still be at this in 2009???  Not me, that's for sure!  Trapped on Vacation is the longest running completely non-commercial Disney podcast on the Internet, and I’m damn proud of that!  I'm also damn proud of the many friends that I've made over the years.  (That's you by the way...) 

My many friends are the #1 reason that I keep on plugging away.  While the episodes may be released a bit slower than at the start, I blame my friends for that... (that's you again!)  Between episodes I'm constantly distracted by all of you on The DPN, Twitter, Plurk, and of course playing in real life at Walt Disney World.  If I haven't met you yet, I'd love to meet you!  Drop me a line if you're visiting Orlando and hopefully we can hang out for a bit!  I've met most of my closest friends that way!!!

Speaking of closest friends, I had the pleasure of spending this episode with the Non-Podcasting Co-Founder of the DPN - BurntToast, who recently transferred from Disneyland to the Walt Disney World Resort.  We did they typical TOV anniversary things.  Although we sent you somewhere else for 1/2 of it. :)

Have fun, and thanks for 4 wonderful years!

BTW It wouldn't be a TOV anniversary if I didn't give a shout out to my friends Darcy & Holly from the  Darcy and Holly Show and The Screenless Switchers for inspiring me to podcast.  I blame them 100% for my insanity.  Thanks guys, you're the best!:)

ToV 123 - Trapped in two of the oldest WDW Attractons!

Mon, 03 Aug 2009 02:45:00 +0000

Hi everyone!
This week I take in two of the oldest attractions at any Disney Theme Park, sort of...  They've both been updated over the years, one every 4 to 8 years, and one stopped being updated around 1994, but seemed to be updated semi-regularly before that.

Ten bucks says you've already figured out which attractions, but if you haven't just listen.  :)

Oh and musical interludes and Earlioke all over the place too!

Mon, 27 Apr 2009 01:58:00 +0000

Hey everyone!
We're back with a quick episode before WestFest! (Visit for the schedule of events!)
This week was Earth Day, and Bleepin' and I visited Conservation Station and took in all of the festivities...  Of course environmental information booths make for horrible and not very entertaining audio, so we took in Grandmother Willow's Song of the Rainforest.  Since the audio booth is a binaural show, headphones are highly recommended for the full effect!

Of course this week is also the First of May, so you know what that means!!!
Jonathan Coulton FTW!!!

Have a great week, and We'll see you at DPN WestFest 2009!

Fri, 20 Mar 2009 01:45:00 +0000

This episode was a ton of fun to record and put together!
Over the last few weeks, we've had quite a few visitors here in paradise, and this episode features some fantastic moments with our friends and family from The DPN and Twitter!

Join us as we take in three totally different attractions from three different Disney Parks... Test Track at Epcot with Auntie Lo and SilverJeeper, Kilimanjaro Safari with DisneyLeigh, and Splash Mountain with AnyaPhalange , PioneerHall, & the LilPioneer. 

I think it's safe to say that hijinks and shenanigans can be found all over the place... ;)

Have fun!

Note: AnyaPhalange doesn't count as a visitor...  she's a TOV regular!  :D

ToV 117 - Trapped with... Umm I dunno... Gators

Fri, 06 Feb 2009 04:48:00 +0000

Happy New Year (a months too late!)
This episode we step outside of the Disney Bubble and take in one of Central Florida's oldest attractions, Gatorland!
We had a great time with a bunch the DPN Crew, including Jeff from Houston, Q, Chris from the Big D Podcast, 4mice+1 Heather, DisneyLeigh, DragonStorm (from twitter), and of course the Bleepin' Wife and myself.
Basically this episode is just us tooling around and making fools of ourself feeding gators hot dogs, and watching Jeff & Chris feed some gators huge chunks of beef.

Bleepin' essentially planned this entire Gatorland visit on getting Jeff to feed the gators up close like I did in ToV71, if you know Jeff, you'll know that this is the complete opposite of his idea of fun....  If you want to know how it turns out, to put it lightly, THAT WAS FANTASIC! (Beauty and the Beast eat your heart out...)

PARENTAL WARNING - When it comes to this group,  if you put more than one of us within 5 miles of each other, we begin to curse like sailors (with the exception of Heather.) I have not edited language on this one. You have been warned!

This week we head back to the AC again for the Adventurers Club Welcome Party in the Library.  This show was one of my favorite shows of the entire week.  Still brings a smile to my face! I hope it brings one to your too!

ToV11*Bleep* - Trapped with Bleepin Goats and AdvClub Radios

Thu, 27 Nov 2008 03:08:00 +0000

Hi everyone!
This week's episode is in fact a team effort... The first 30 minutes, and 3 segments of the show were recorded by none other than the Executive Producer and Chief Financier of Trapped on Vacation, the Bleepin' Wife!
Go along with her as she ventures to The Mouse Guest Experience!  The attractions that you're riding along with her and the gang are The Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and finally the Goat Goat Goat event that she hosted on behalf of the DPN at MGE.  It was really great to meet everyone there, and thanks to everyone who introduced themselves to me while I was hiding by Toast.  :)

After Bleepin's Sheninagans we head back in time again to the final day of the Adventurers Club for the last Radiothon ever.

Have fun!

(Oh I forgot, there's a classic Earlioke at the end from ToV80!)

It's the annual ToV Halloween episode!

Ok, I know it's late.  But since Christmas keeps geting earlier every year, I see nothing wrong with having Halloween a little later.  I hope you agree!

This week we head to the MK to take in a performance of HalloWishes as part of Fat and Happy 2008!  Then we head back in time a month and head to the Adventurers Club for one of their final Halloween Shows.  Then of corpse we head back to the MK for a performance of the Cadaver Dans!

Happy Halloween everyone!  Boo to you!

toV112 - Trapped with Sugar Snapp and Banana Plants

Mon, 20 Oct 2008 04:00:00 +0000

After dreading listening to my AC audio for three weeks, I finally put the headphones on again. It's still tough for me to listen to because of the flood of memories and emotions that it creates.
Instead of any more dedicated Adventurers Club shows, I'm going to split them up and pair them with unrelated Audio that I recorded this week, no archives, like I've always done.... Using multiple AC clips its too much for me to handle, and I apologize.

This week we hear my dear friend Sugar Snapp's final Maid Show and then head over to the place at Epcot where I got my start at WDW.
Have fun! Because we did!

Tov111 - Trapped with Annelle and Samantha Adv Club final Week

Thu, 25 Sep 2008 17:39:00 +0000

It's Thursday so I'm bringing you audio from last night, and the night before.
I know that I said that I was sticking to daily stuff, but decided to change my mind. Tuesday was Annelle, the French Maid's final performance, and Wednesday the same actor played Samantha Sterling. She's among our favoritest performers in all of WDW, and I think it's fitting that I play both of her shows in one episode.
Thank you Annelle!

(Side Note: It's funny how even the regulars call the french maids by their maid names even when they're playing someone else... It's just easier than using their real names, and it won't get anyone in trouble. Tonight Annelle's playing Samantha...)

It's another night at the Adv Club... Starting things out is Tuesday's Radiothon. Great stuff as always! After that we head to the Hoopla for perhaps the best shows that I've ever seen in the library! There were a few moments where there wasn't a dry eye in the room! The show really highlighted the talent and diversity of the performers. Also many congratulations to the Adventurers Club Door Host, Kirk for reaching 20 years with the Walt Disney Company! Kirk received his 20 year pin in the middle of the show, which was great! Thanks to PI management for letting him celebrate this moment a week early. (That moment is the Album Art for this episode...)

Hi all. It's the week that I've been dreading since the end of June. The Adventurer's Club is closing on Saturday, and there's nothing we can do but enjoy the last few nights. The Bleepin Wife and I will be there every night this week and I'll be posting the best audio that I recorded from each night. There may be repeats of Hooplas or Radiothons, but while the shows are similar, no two shows are ever the same. Hope you enjoy them. It's going to be tough for us to say Good Bye... Kungaloosh!

ToV 108 - Trapped at the start of Season 4!

Tue, 02 Sep 2008 03:11:00 +0000

Hi all!
I'm kicking off the 4th season of ToV the same way I do every year on Labor Day weekend since I got here in 1998:  Pirates and Pooh! (I explain why in the show...)

BTW - I've decided to go back to my roots.  Podcasting for me, with content taking priority over quality., if you like it cool.  If not then there's plenty of Disney Podcasts that take pride in their "Quality Audio" to listen to. 
Over the past year, I've lost my focus and a bit of my soul by worrying too much what people think.  F*ck that jazz. 
I started doing this show for me.  People liked it.  My numbers grew and that was cool.  I started worrying about my audio and improved my quality. My numbers grew even more, and I ignored the content. 
In doing so, I stopped having fun.  Other podcasts are businesses.  I'm not.  This is nothing more than a hobby for me...
So from now on, I'm focusing on fun, like I did when I started.  That may mean crappy audio because I'm not focused on monitoring my audio levels on my recorder.
If you stick around great!  If you don't, have a magical day!  ;)

ToV107 - Trapped in the heat with dead guys.

Wed, 30 Jul 2008 06:55:00 +0000

This week we beat the head in the Air Conditioned splendor of the HAll of Presidents! Do we need to say more???  Kick ice awesomeness all over the place!

This episode marks the debut of the Bleepin Wife Productions Vanity Card.  As "Executive Producer" (and I use the term loosely) Bleepin' wants to be just like Chuck Lorre who has a new vanity card at the end of Two and a Half Men.  Sometimes they relate to the show, sometimes they don't.  All the time they're pretty damn funny!  So check out the Lyrics Tab in iTunes info or keep clicking the middle button on your iPod until you see it!  Listeners on the web, subscribe, it's easy!  Non-iTunes people can probably see it too somehow since it's embedded in the ID3 tags of the mp3.  Just don't ask me how.  :)

tov106 Trapped at the 1937 Balderdash Cup Competition!

Wed, 02 Jul 2008 03:30:00 +0000

Hi all...
You've probably already heard that Pleasure Island and the Adventurers Club will be closing on 9/27.  They made the announcement on Friday night, so after we found out, Bleepin' and I went to visit the crew on Saturday.  We'll be heading there at least 1-2 times a week until the end of September, so we'll be sure to document the AC for your memories and ours.  Come along and join us for the annual Balderdash Cup competition!

It's both depressing and fun at the same time. 
I hope you enjoy is as much as we did/do/will.

I'm still figuring out my new recorder, so it may be a bit wonky at times.  :)

ToV105 - Trapped with Goats and Bump Bump Bumps

Wed, 11 Jun 2008 12:41:00 +0000

I'm back from the NHL Playoffs!  Well I should say I'm finally off of my couch...  Go Red Wings!

This week we head back to Westfest for the "Watch the Bleepin' Goat! Goat! Goat!" meet on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, courtesy of John from Houston of the Meandering Mouse Podcast.  After that I hang out with my friend Princess Bella and her parents and see a couple attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Parents:  I dropped 2 F-bombs that I forgot about until I was mixing down the show.  One was 2 minutes in, when I was talking about the Red Wings, and one was right at the very end.  Since it literally takes 90 minutes for my Powerbook to mix and convert, I didn't have time last night to go back and bleep.  The rest of the show is 100% safe, just those two instances.  Sorry!

TOV98 - Trapped with Heroes during the Writers Strike...

Wed, 30 Jan 2008 19:15:00 +0000

This week is totally different from a "normal" episode of TOV, if there is such a thing as a "normal" episode...

This past weekend I went to the FX Toy Show at the Orlando Convention Center.  While I was there I happened to catch a Q&A Panel with George Takei (Kaito Nakamura), Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman), and Stephen Tobolowsky (Bob) from the cast of Heroes.  I know that a bunch of people who listen to ToV are Heroes fans, so this one is for them.  If you're not a Heroes fan, listen anyways because the guys basically talk about random pop culture as well.  Of course there's a running commentary by me and "ABC..."

Tov97 - Trappedat Epcot: We'rew runners forever.

Mon, 21 Jan 2008 08:05:00 +0000

This week we head to Epcot for the 15th Annual Walt Disney World Marathon.
Ignore the wind... it was windy (obviously...)

At Epcot we celebrate victory for many runners of the WDW MArathon and 1/2 Marathon, and those Goofy people who ran both, and also the insane people who ran the 5k, the 1/2, and the full marathon on the same weekend!!! (Seriously... WTF!?!?!)
While I'm there I come across some slacking custodial who think that they should take their break onstage counting down the seconds until they work again like they're beating on a drum or something. (Bad Show and Lazy! Plus sideways hats and whistles!!!)
After that I came up with a scenario to make the marathon even harder than it is!

I mention that I'm not doing Earlioke, but I lied. Earlioke is back and funner than ever! (forgive me!!!)

Ok, it's January 6th, also know as Three Kings in many nations of the World, also known as the last legal day of the Holiday Season.

Mon, 17 Dec 2007 16:40:00 +0000

This week the Bleepin' Wife and I start out telling a lie about how we weren't going to do any holiday stuff at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Of course we did, so come along with us and enjoy some free Hot Cocoa and Mickey's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. After that we head to Epcot for the Holiday tag at the end of Illuminations. Then we wrap the whole thing up with Rusty Cutlass, the Pirate Band back at MVMCP.
Actually that's a lie too...
We wrap the whole thing up with the return of Earlioke!

tov93 - Trapped with Friends, Beer, and Cover Songs?

Sun, 11 Nov 2007 21:46:00 +0000

It's the last week of Food and Wine!  Noooooooooooooooo!

So of course we had to hang out and have some delicious beverages....  The beverages happened to be Sam Adams, and some of them happened to be free thanks to The Boston Beer Company's Sam Adams Seminar!  Of course after that we hung around in the area to buy some more beer at the Sam Adams tent.  Some guy happened to be singing some songs that we're pretty sure that he didn't sing originally...  He was fun though.

Have a listen.  :)

tov92 - Trapped with Dolphins that you can't hear!

Thu, 25 Oct 2007 11:53:00 +0000

So this week is a time warp episode...  I recorded it the day after the last episode, yet didn't get a chance to finish it until yesterday.

For our first anniversary we went to Discovery Cove to swim with dolphins, stingrays, sharks, and barrcudas!  I think this is a first for Orlando podcasting, and I hope you enjoy the experience...  I know we sure did and we can't wait to go back!!!

One thing to note:  My recorder was in a waterproof bag (and in the water) for much of the experience, so the crisp, clean binaural sound that you've come to expect isn't happening this week.  I think you'll enjoy it anyways...

Have fun!

I'm back! (Again...)

Join the Bleepin' Wife and I as we take in one of Florida's Historical Attractiona, Weeki Wachee Springs.  Lately the park's fate has been up in the air, so now is the time to take it all in.  Both the Bleepin' Wife and I highly recommend taking the drive from Central Florida over to the Coast to enjoy the wonderful experience that they offer.

This episode is a little bit different from the norm, because it involves a combination of storytelling and attraction audio, yet not the audio that you'd expect to hear...

Have fun!

Edit - I slipped and said that the News reported that Florida was in exploratory talks about making Weeki Wachee a National Park when I meant to say State Park.

Woot! Finally got a chance to hit the parks after our short vacation and working at 6am-6pm every day (and being exhausted when I'm through!)
Last night after work I found some of the best AC in World Showcase while relaxing in Impressions de France.
This is one of the most relaxing and beautiful shows in WDW. Since it features scenery and music instead of showing the people of the country, it doesn't date itself like Canada & Norway. It's one of my favorite movies in the Park, and I discovered something that I never really realized before...

This week we head down I-4 to experience the wonder that is Busch Gardens Africa!  This is a different sort of episode.  I think it's more of an "interactive trip report" than your typical episode of TOV.  We had a ton of fun in the park that day, and I hope you have as much fun as we had!

This week we have a nautical themeas we take in 3 out of 5 Boat attractions at the Magic Kingdom. Sure I could list them, but I'd rather keep you guessing! Brand new Voicemail line - 407-792-BEER! Woot!!! Gimme a call! Of course everything's wrapped up with another Earlioke! Bonus points go to the person who guesses the reason why I picked the song. It's the shortest song yet, and I think I spent more time producing that segment than the rest of the entire show! Hope you enjoy it, although if you don't that's sort of the point of bad singing as well. :) Have fun!!!

Of course it's the first week of May and TOV listeners know what that means... It means that I play a fun Jonathan Coulton song called First of May at the end of the show that isn't exactly kid safe. So parents you have been warned. The rest of the show is fine, I'll tell you when to stop. Originally I recorded this on the First of May but the Vacation Home rehab schedule didn't let me edit until last night. Oops!

ToV75 - Trapped in Mexico and North Montana

Mon, 09 Apr 2007 11:42:00 +0000

eing Spring Break, the Bleepin' Wife and I skipped the parks on our days off because the crowds are evil! Although I took one for the team and hit Epcot on Saturday night to take a voyage on the Mexican Boat Ride, I mean the Gran Fiesta Tour starring the Three Caballeros. After that I take a leisurely stroll around World Showcase stopping to plop in a couch and listen to some music in a Flower & Garden Festival Display, and finally head to North Montana as I catch Fiddler's Joy performing on the stage there. I almost forgot!!! There's about 30 seconds of Paul Revere and the Raiders in there as well... I caught the very eng of their show.

Everything's wrapped up with either the best or worst Earlioke ever. I have no idea how Earlioke spun so far out of control, (and why you people keep sending me email encouraging me to keep doing it!?!?!) bonus points for the first person who figures out and posts what the connection is between the song and where I went in the episode.

Hey everybody , this week I'm back in the Disney bubble! Come along as we head to the American Gardens and take in a performance of one of my favorite musical groups, Toxic Audio!
I learned a valuable lesson in recording this week... If you know where the spot in the theater is where you get the best audio, sit there and don't move to where you'll get a bettter view! We sat fairly close to the stage, and didn't capture the full audio range of the performance. Oh well, it still sounds pretty good...
If you want great sound, just head over to and pick up their CDs. :)

Mon, 12 Mar 2007 13:18:00 +0000

Originally I intended to hit Mardi Gras at Universal to catch the Doobie Brothers.  That didn't happen.

In my opinion, I found something better!  Each week on the "small stage" they bring in musical acts directly from New Orleans.  This week was Big Sam's Funky Nation, and performed 30 minutes of non-stop high energy funk!  After watching their set, I really didn't think that the Doobie Brothers could've topped it, so I left.  :)

ToV71 - Trapped with a Seminole in Gatorland

Mon, 05 Mar 2007 13:36:00 +0000

If you've been following the show over at the DPN (now easily accessible at ) you already know what I did this week!

The Bleepin' Wife and I spent a great day visiting one of the oldest, and perhaps my favorite attraction in Central Florida, Gatorland!

I have enough audio to spread through a couple shows, but this week we take in the World Famous Gatorland Jumparoo and the Aligator Wrestling show.  I've been going there for quite some time, but this visit was the first time I saw a woman aligator wrestler.  It could be that they've had women wrestlers for years but I just never happened to be there when they were working, who knows... 

Anyways we had a great time and will probably be visiting again in the future.  The Bleepin' Wife had never been there before and loved it!

Oh, I almost forgot the death defying stupid stunts!  We also feed the gators hot dogs on sticks, and then I take in Gatorland's Adventure Hour where I paid $10 to go on the other side of the fence and feed the gators up close from 3 feet away!  That was perhaps the coolest thing that I've done in quite a while!  I'd like to thank Gatorland employee, Chris for convincing me to do it and carrying the big stick!

The Gatorland staff is among the friendliest in the area.  The all seem to have a passion for what they do and where they work.

Have fun!

tov69 - Trapped with a huge thanks to the Meandering Mouse!

Tue, 20 Feb 2007 14:10:00 +0000

This month, both the Meandering Mouse Podcast and the Disney Podcast Network are celebrating their first anniversary.

As a way of saying thanks to Jeff, I'm going back in my time machine phone booth and revisiting the first emails and clips that Jeff sent in to Trapped on Vacation back in November of 2005 when he pretty much became a co-host of TOV for a few months.  Without his contributions, I'm pretty positive that I would've given up and gotten bored with this gig back in December of '05.  Now of course with the DPN, I'm not doing this for listeners, I'm creating this show as a way of hanging out with friends that live around the world.  Just last night the Bleepin' Wife and I were discussing the fact that some of our closest friends live across the country, and many of them we didn't know just 10 months ago!  Strange but true.

So thanks for everything Jeff, here's to another great year!

(I'm such an ass kisser...  although he'll probably smack me for playing this stuff.  Compared to the Meandering Mouse today, it's almost painful to listen to!  Gotta love that Griffin Lapel Mic that someone recommended so highly!)  ;)

PG-13 Warning!!!  I missed an edit and dropped an F-Bomb...  Right after I read Jeff's original email that he sent me, I crack a beer.  When I open the beer skip 10 seconds and you'll miss the f-bomb (I called Jeff an f-in' awesome friend.)  The rest is clean I promise!

ToV67 - Trapped with an evil pause button and Tokyo DisneySea! (pt1)

Wed, 24 Jan 2007 15:16:00 +0000

This week Trapped on Vacation gets attacked by the Evil Pause Button of Death!!! All day on Thursday I kept accidentally pausing while recording.  Did I ever learn my lesson???   H3ll no!!!  Why?  Because I’m an idiot…    Actually I was having too much fun hanging out with Auntie Lo and SilverJeeper (plus the Bleepin’ Wife of course) that I just wasn’t paying attention. So this week we hit Big Thunder, followed by the biggest pause button disappointment of the day (18 seconds of heartache.)  We then head on over and get our Buzz on in Tomorrowland.   This week is also the first installment of DrDuck’s trip to Tokyo Disney Resort!  When I met him and his family at Epcot a few months ago, he gave me literally hours of audio. I’ve finally been able to begin going through it.  Over the next few weeks, months, years, etc, I’ll be sharing his wonderful trip a few minutes at a time.  It’s really incredible stuff, and his family is great!!!    Ending things this week is a segment from this week’s episode of the Teknikal Difficulties Podcast.  Sketch Comedy featuring the Main Street Electrical Parade.  It cracked me up so much that I had to email Cayenne to ask him if I could play it.  Thankfully he said yes!   Show Links: Teknikal Difficulties Podcast –[...]

Hey! I'm back and exhausted!
Before Mousefest I said that it was just another typical week here at WDW for me.
In a way it was since I had to work, but then again in a typical week I we usually spend about 6.5 hours playing in the Parks.  This week we spent more time playing than I did working, and I still worked my usual 40!

Thankfully the DPN Cool Kids are gone and I can get back to normal...
This week I give you my thoughts about Mousefest as I go thru the day by day, and wrap it up with the DPN More Fun than watching Plants Grow ride on the Land Boat Ride (Living with the Land)

We had a great time and would highly recommend the park to anyone who wants a break from the norm.  It's very quaint, I mean incredibly quaint.  So take yer Disney AP over there and relax!

Note:  The first half of the show is G rated at Disney, but the Bill and Ted Show is about the same rating as South Park, with strong language (A words and B words but no F words) and slightly offensive, but funny content!  Parents use discretion, I actually warn you before, so you have plenty of time to hit Pause.

TOV 55 - Trapped in the 80's on a Starship!

Mon, 09 Oct 2006 12:38:00 +0000

This week we head to the 11th annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.  Performing as part of the Eat to the Beat Series was Starship, either one of the best, or one of the worst bands of the last 20 years depending on your point of view.

This is probably among my favorite episodes to date, not because of the content, but because of that fact that the Vacation Fiancee and I had a great time listening, watching, and especially making fun of the Band.  Usually I don't listen to the entire show when I finish, but I had to listen to it all the way through once I started because I couldn't stop smiling!

The first song has loud levels, and I noticed it while recording, so when the song finished I stopped recording and lowered the levels a bit, so the rest of the set sounds much better!

Due to time constraints, I did little editing or cutting, and no bleeping whatsoever.   I really don't remember using any foul language, however the VF and I discussed some adult topics in regards to groupies of 80's bands.


Music at the end is by "The Chicken Nuggets"  you can find them on iTunes!

Please note:  Because of my "pseudo-Vacation" last week, and my vacation to Michigan for the pre-wedding reception this weekend,  this show and next weeks show will be minimal.  The wedding's coming up quickly, and there's not going to be a ton of time to sit back and put the podcast together, so bear with me!  I'm still planning on doing something every week, just not a ton...Thanks!

I can't believe that it's been a year since I began, but it's Trapped on Vacation's First Anniversary!!!

Join me along with a cavalcade of celebrities, guest stars, (and John) as I count down the Top 3 (and more) Moments of the first year of ToV as voted on by a ton of listeners.  I had a great time putting this show together, and I hope that you enjoy it!

Trapped with Dead iRivers and Anniversary requests!

Mon, 28 Aug 2006 03:23:00 +0000

Hi all... just a quick little thing this week.
My iRiver died last week, so I had no new content. A new one should be here Tuesday, so that's good. Basically I'm sending out a request to ALL OF YOU to send me anything you'd like for the ToV anniversary episode next weekend (Deadline is Friday 9/1)
Mainly I'm borrowing a page from Ricky and Skipper Ben's book on Inside the Magic and asking you all for your top 3 ToV moments of the first year...
So start emailing me, calling me, sending me mp3s or leaving forum posts. Any way you want to reach me is fine with me, as long as you reach me!
Thanks everyone!

tov49 - Trapped with wet hair that pops balloons

Thu, 17 Aug 2006 04:49:00 +0000

Sorry for the delay this week everyone! (See the post on the DPN that explains why...) This week we take a break from the Florida Summer heat as we enjoy all of the water rides at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. The audio on Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges and Dudley Doright's Rip Saw Falls was taken in a waterproof bag. That means no binaural goodness, but the Jurassic Park segment had the good mics. (JP usually doesn't get as wet, but you can hear some staticy sounds at the end where a tiny drop of water got on the mic...) Hope you have fun and stay cool! Music inspired by the park...

Tov 46 - Trapped with Dragons and Duck Butts!

Wed, 19 Jul 2006 13:28:00 +0000

This week, I wrap up the Trapped on Vacation 3D Film Festival.  I'm sad to see it go because that meant that I'll have to actually plan my shows again!  The good news is that I'll probably be knocking more stuff off of "Earl's List."  in the upcoming weeks/months.  So pull out your 3D glasses one last time, sit back and relax and enjoy Mickey's Philharmagic (starring Donald Duck...?) 

After that we head out of the Disney Bubble and into the alternate universe known as Islands of Adventure to ride Dueling Dragons.  Hold tight to all of your personal belongings, this here's the wildest ride in the medievalness!

As always, have fun!
