  • 🤖 In this classic video from @waltdisneyworld, Walt Disney shows off his audio animatronic technology. Trivia: the original voice of the father of this family was Rex Allen (1964). His voice can still be heard today, but he no longer plays the father. Which two characters does he voice in the current version? 🇺🇸

  • Eurotrip Day 11 (pt. 2): La Tour Eiffel et Notre-Dame de Paris: Beginning construction in 1887, the Eiffel Tower was built for the 1889 World’s Fair and was the tallest structure in the World from 1889-1930. While the iron-wrought lattice is a prized cultural icon today, its design was originally met with great opposition amongst Parisians and architects who saw it as an eyesore. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the structure stands at 324m tall and provides visitors with a breathtaking vantage point over the city of Paris. If you look closely at the photos from the top, you may recognize other famous locations such as L’Arc de Triomphe and Les Invalides. While the wind at le sommet was bitter, it was worth scaling the tower at night. C‘était incroyable! Notre-Dame de Paris began construction in 1163 and is considered the pinnacle of French Gothic architecture. The medieval edifice serves as a place of worship and confession to this day. Its ornate “rose windows” are some of the largest stained glass pieces in the World. La Rose du Sud and La Rose Midi were offered by King Louis IX who wanted France to have the holiest cathedral in all of Europe. Some of the sculptures inside include Joan of Arc, St. Denis (the patron saint of Paris), and of course, Jesus Christ. 🇫🇷🗼⛪️ #paris #france #travel #architecture #history #eiffeltower #latoureiffel #worldsfair #gustaveeiffel #notredame #cathedral #rosewindow #kinglouis #joanofarc #stdenis #jesus

  • After YEARS of hearing this one recommended to me, I finally read Devil in the White City by Erik Larson! I love his brand of narrative nonfiction, and this did not disappoint. He weaves together the story of how the Chicago World’s Fair came together, along with the simultaneous rise of serial killer H.H.Holmes. At times I had difficulty seeing the connection between the two narratives, because they are so radically different...but in the end, I quickly realized that neither story would have been complete without the other. Not always the most captivating read (the architecture details could be especially slow at times), but overall it’s definitely an impressive piece of storytelling! #bookreview #devilinthewhitecity #eriklarson #nonfiction

  • Have yourself a merry little Christmas at the #AeroTheatre this holiday season with some holiday classics hosted by author Jeremy Arnold (Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies: 30 Classics to Celebrate the Season). MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS (1944) screens on Saturday, Dec. 22 at 7:30 PM. Judy Garland and Margaret O’Brien perform “Bamboo Tree” in the parlor and then there’s the enduring charm of “The Trolley Song.” Life seems perfect in St. Louis on the brink of the 1904 World’s Fair for the four sisters of a working-class family, until the father reveals they have to leave for New York. Adapted from Sally Benson’s short stories, originally published in The New Yorker, this gem of cinematic, picture-postcard Americana and youthful romance marked the beginning of the golden age of MGM musicals, and the golden age for director Vincente Minnelli as well: He married Judy Garland the following year.

  • The Mustang was unveiled at the 1964 World's Fair located in Flushing Meadows, Queens. So I put a Queens tourism plate depicting the Unipshere on my car. The monument was built the same year, for the same fair, to celebrate the start of the Space Age. While the Ford Mustang is regarded as an American icon, to me, it is like the Unipshere, a Queens icon. Photo #1 by @nelloy_moe
