Oklahoma’s Chainsaw Kittens,Tyson Meade Kickstarter project

Hi Everyone!
Sometimes lemons do become lemonade. I was forced to leave China for visa reasons, though I have now procured a new Chinese visa here in the State and I will be returning to Shanghai after Chinese New Year. Packing an apartment, booking an air ticket, not to mention picking up a beautifully hand tailored silver suit, within 24 hours is bizarrely game show-like to say the least. But on the lemonade side of the coin (if we can mix metaphors), I was able to record with three high school students from a prestigious performing arts high school in Houston. The clip is them working out the part and me forgetting to turn off the camera. So there is an extra two minutes of dark (literally) conversation. I hope everyone enjoys this!
Much love
Tyson

Disney’s Galveston cruises start in September

Mickey and Minnie Mouse are coming to Texas, and they’re bringing a big boat with them.

Starting Sept. 22, Disney Cruise Line will sail round trip from Galveston on six-, seven- and eight-night western Caribbean itineraries.

When Disney had only two cruise ships — Magic and Wonder — its home port was Port Canaveral, Fla., near Orlando’s Disney World. Now that the company has four ships, with Dream launched last year and Fantasy earlier this year, it has more options.

“Texas was a natural expansion point for us,” says Disney Cruise Line marketing manager Jennifer Haile-Tinn.

“Texas is an incredible supporter of Disneyland, Disney World and Disney Cruise Line. This brings one component of all that closer.”
