Where did everybody go? It has been kind of slow around here lately!


As I was playing around with my Pirates DVD, I found 3 of the four of the Easter Eggs below. The only one I had missed was the Japanese Trailer, and that is because I didn't go onto that particular page.

All of these are on the second disk

Select "Moonlight Serenade" Scene Progression
Highlight 'Main Menu' and press down twice to highlight the skeleton's tooth.
Press enter to see the Keith Richards interview

That is the best of the eggs.


Select "Below Deck"
Select "Scene Index"
Select "next"
Highlight "Pirate Ships" and go left
Press Enter for the Japanese Trailer
Select 'Below Deck'
Highlight 'Set Sail' and press left twice to highlight the skull.
Press enter to watch an early (crude) computer animation of the chase scene without voices.
Select 'Fly on the Set'
Highlight 'Play All' and press right twice to highlight the skeleton's tooth.
Press enter to watch "Pirates Cave Construction". :pirate:

Congratulations on finding most of them yourself!

Carol and I just watched all 4 of them for the first time tonight after she found them mentioned on

I think the Keith Richards interview is the best one, too. I also think we got a better trailer for the movie than the Japanase did!

It was interesting to watch them building the cave set. It made me think of the stop-motion filming Walt Disney did when he was having Disneyland constructed.

Where is everybody? Well, Mouse Fest is going on now, so some of the regulars have gone to WDW to attend that. Also, if other EchoEars are like me they're feeling a bit blue over what's happened between Eisner and Roy Disney... It is sad to me that there no longer is a Disney in The Walt Disney Company -- even sadder the way Roy was forced to leave. Also, I'm working on the upgrades to the database and forum software but in the meantime the software slows down a whole lot from time to time, so that might be putting some people off for now.

Hopefully it'll be a great big beautiful tomorrow in 2004 -- in all respects.
