2023.06.09 21:14 MinuteLayer4 Coachella Art Relics - Small Big Trip

I owe a debt to Palm Springs Life magazine which I always read and take notes on the articles and columns in Arts & Entertainment because I always find inspiration for my videos. In the April 2023 issue I got the inspiration for this video I'm posting again. In an article by Emily Chavous Foster with the cover title “Coachella Art Relics” which gives the absolutely correct name for this video, the author of the article together with the photographer Brandon Harman, show in detail some of these sculptures or installations – I prefer the second one appellation – which were purchased after the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Everyone has heard of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival and the focus is largely always on the artists and their musical performances that eventually participate in that particular edition of the Festival. What most people might not know is that not only is music being performed, but also artistic installations are on display during the Festival. Some of them were acquired by cities right here in the Coachella Valley and are in Public Parks where everyone can contemplate and perhaps learn more about the artistic symbolism of each one of them. On the 30th and 31st of May 2023 I had the opportunity to visit them and I made this video that I hope you like. Don't forget to visit the website: https://www.palmspringslife.com where you can read the full article about “Coachella Art Relics” – which is certainly the source of this video of mine.

2023.06.09 17:23 smallorbits Where to see Akita dogs near Akita city?

Hi all, I'm on a solo trip this July (I know summer weather is bad etc I've been to Japan more than a dozen times, live in a tropical climate etc so not looking for comments on humidity and rain) and will be making my way through Tohoku on a two week trip using the JR East Tohoku pass which I'll be buying twice.
I booked Akita just for the dogs but just realized that Odate is is pretty far from Akita city itself, actually closer to Hirosaki and Aomori which I'd go to in the days after. Where do you recommend I see the doggos? Seems a shame to go to Akita and not see dogs.
Or can anyone recommend places to go to around Akita city itself? I'm a casual traveler, not too fussed about missing sights because that gives me a reason to head back, and am interested in more laidback things like hanging out at a park or museum or cafe. It'll be my birthday week and I don't want to be too stressed out over traveling. I plan to come back in the future during spring as well to see the cherry blossoms.
This is part of my itinerary:
11th July Sendai to Akita, reach 12.30pm No plans; chill day - originally wanted to see doggos until I realized how far they were. Open to still traveling (must see dogs) or can just sit at a cafe all day.
12th July Kakunodate Lake Tazawa (maybe if not too taxing)
13th July Resort Shirakami to Hirosaki 3.49pm arrival No plans; chill day
14th July Inakadate Rice Paddy Art Hirosaki Park/Castle Tsugaru Neputa Village if time permits Head to Aomori
15th July Hachinohe
16th July Furukawa Fish Market Nebuta Museum A-Factory Head to Tokyo

2023.06.09 12:51 House_of_Suns /r/QOTSA Official Band of the Week 23: KING BUFFALO

So when you think of cities with high culture and vibrant music scenes on the east coast, what springs to mind? Obviously New York. Thanks to Drake, we all know about the growing music scene in Toronto. You prahbahbly musta tawt a Bawstan tew. Maybe Montreal or Philadelphia or even Baltimore crossed your mind.
Hah. Baltimore.
Time to check your cultural bias, pal. You passed over a quiet little city on the south shore of Lake Ontario, nestled in the Genesee River valley. It has a history as a hotbed of Abolitionism and Women’s Rights. It is the home of Eastman Kodak, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, Western Union, Ragu and other innovative companies. It has a lively music scene, great nightclubs, world-renowned universities, thriving museums, arts & culture festivals, and live theatre. It is a true cultural gem that many folks overlook.
Yep. You bet your ass I am talking about Rochester, New York.
Since we know that Stoner Rock can come from anywhere, it should be no surprise that Rochester has produced one of the leading bands in this genre. This week we are going to check out a band you are going to want to listen to. If you know them, you love them. If you haven’t heard of them, you are going to thank me.
This week’s band is KING BUFFALO.
About Them
Hold on a sec. King Buffalo? Not King Rochester?
To be fair, King Rochester sounds like the villain in a Disney movie. Kinda hard to imagine that on a T-Shirt. King New York sounds like a particularly obnoxious Yankees fan (and yeah, finding a Yankees fan that isn’t obnoxious is a tough go). King Albany sounds like a car made by Kia.
But King Buffalo? That just works.
Our heroes didn’t start out together. King Buffalo were made up of members of two other Rochester area bands.
Randall Coon and Scott Donaldson were playing together in Velvet Elvis. That five piece band played heavy rock with space-based themes in the early 2010’s. Sean McVay and Dan Reynolds were in another band called Abandoned Buildings Club (side note: kinda neat that their initials were ABC), who had a pure psychedelic rock vibe. When both VE and ABC appeared to be having limited success, the four musicians decided to merge their talents into one band. Coon had handled vocals and guitar in Velvet Elvis and Donaldson had been rock solid on drums. McVay had done vocals and guitar in Abandoned Buildings Club and Reynolds had anchored the sound with his bass. All the pieces were there for a classic Beatles-esque lineup.
So out of the wreckage of ABC and VE, KB arose. The four members gelled so well that they were able to record their first demo - aptly titled Demo - in just two days. Their sound was immediately compared to tourmates and close friends All Them Witches. But where ATW were bluesy and sludgy, King Buffalo had produced songs full of space. Oh, there were heavy riffs for sure - but there were passages of music that were contrastingly lighter and further apart. The best example of these contrasts can be found in the more than 11 minutes of Providence Eye. The first six and a half minutes come at you at a lulling pace, enveloping you in the moment. You get swept up in the rolling riffs. But then the drop happens and you suddenly realize the song has been building to this peak. The tempo picks up and you ride a relentless rollercoaster until you hit the Black Sabbath-inspired outro, which takes you home. It is an emotional experience. The two other tracks - In Dim Light and Pocket Full of Knife are smaller essays on the same theme.
It was clear right from Demo that King Buffalo had some serious talent. But if you have listened to the band you will notice that one thing is starkly different on Demo than from any of their other releases: the vocals. Randall Coon was the lead vocalist on these recordings. If you play them up against anything since by the band they stand out. Our very own QotSA may have successfully had multiple vocalists on multiple tunes, but King Buffalo was destined to have Sean McVay take over the mic. Shortly after 2013’s Demo, Coon left the band to do a solo project called Skunk Hawk.
King Buffalo stood at a crossroads: did they look to replace Coon, or should they carry on as a Power Trio? The choice for them was obvious. McVay, Reynolds and Donaldson knew that they had fantastic potential together. They decided they didn't need anyone else.
Side note: Regular readers of these write ups know that All Them Witches just went through this exact crisis in 2019. What I didn’t share then is that ATW are close friends with KB. I would not be surprised to learn that ATW had some serious conversations about their lineup with the boys from KB before they, too, decided last year to pare down to just three members.
To re-christen their new lineup, in 2015 King Buffalo went in on a split EP with Swedish band Lé Betre (I mean, hooking up with a Swedish partner is a dream of mine, so I see the appeal.) They re-recorded their standout tune Providence Eye with McVay on vocals, as well as two new tracks - Like a Cadillac and New Time. New Time opens their side of the EP with an infectious, descending riff that hooks you immediately. It is clear from the lyrics - No wasting around, it’s a new time - that they had moved on from Coon. Like a Cadillac follows up and is a three and a half minute jam that leaves you wanting more. The re-recorded version of Providence Eye closes out their side of the split EP and leaves no doubt that they are in charge. It is a tighter, heavier version, and the amazing outro is so low down that it will make you want to rob your own house.
With their lineup now set, it was time to put together enough music to tour on. In 2016, King Buffalo released Orion. Here you can witness the melding of their influences into something majestic and fantastic, and it is here that they really develop their signature style.
To explain this style, you need to understand basic song structure.
Most pop songs tend to go verse - chorus - verse - chorus - bridge - chorus - chorus. Sure, you could add in a solo for the bridge, or a detailed intro or outro, or another verse - but this is a tried and true formula. Some variation of this dominates the pop charts to this day.
Not with King Buffalo songs. These guys are the masters of the drop, and you hear it in most of their tunes. QotSA fans are no strangers to that long build and release; it is an integral part of tunes like The Evil Has Landed, God is in the Radio, Song For The Dead, and I Appear Missing. One of the sickest drops ever recorded happens in the middle of the Them Crooked Vultures tune No One Loves Me & Neither Do I. It is where the music turns around, and a new riff takes over, often along with a pace change. It is then that you realize that the song has built to this climactic moment, and you are engulfed by the music.
King Buffalo does this better than anyone else, and you hear it clearly articulated, again and again, on the album Orion.
Take the song Kerosene for example.
A rolling bass riff from Reynolds establishes the song right out of the gate. Donaldson produces punchy drum beats with cymbal crashes at the end of each phrase. McVay’s slide guitar rounds out the intro. McVay’s vocals - very Ozzy like, if Ozzy had any semblance of self-control - frame the first verse, which ends in a fuzzy, heavy riff with crashing cymbals. This same pattern is repeated a second time and the drop is teased at just past three minutes in, but does not happen quite yet. The listener’s anticipation builds as the airy, soaring solo from McVay calls out in contrast to the rolling bass. After the guitar solo bridge, the band goes right back into the chorus. But then it happens: THE DROP. Just past 5 minutes in, the song takes a complete and abrupt turn for a totally different riff that is at the same time heavier and brand new, and yet has been there all the while.
What King Buffalo does brilliantly is subvert your musical expectations.
The standard structure is V-C-V-C-B-C-C.
Kerosene is V-C-V-C-B-C-DROP-OUTRO. Just when you subliminally expect something the same, you get something different.
The entire album is like that. Orion hardly sounds like a debut. It is a mature and deliberate soundscape built by talented musicians who are making significant choices about their art. Songs like Drinking From The River Rising open with an expansive and elastic topography, but drill down to the molten lava of heavy riffs and distorted fuzz. Sleeps On A Vine begins with one of the most zen riffs you’ve ever heard and ends in a tumultuous and heavy sonic assault that is pure controlled chaos. Every song on the album is a study in contrasts that leaves you with auditory whiplash and a burning desire for more.
They are that good.
King Buffalo were able to tour on their new material, and did so extensively. They played clubs and larger venues, often with friends and fellow Stoner Rockers All Them Witches and other bands like The Sword and Elder. In 2017, the released the EP Repeater as a follow up. It is just three songs (The vinyl ad reads, All songs on one side! No need to flip!) but it is a heck of a musical journey. The title track off the EP is 13+ minutes long and is one huge build. When the fuzz finally drops after almost 8 minutes, it is a true cathartic moment. It sneaks up on you, and is so welcome when it hits - especially after McVay’s repetition that “Every Day is the Same* - that you intrinsically understand how great it is when things finally change for the better. Too Little Too Late is an instrumental tune that is both enveloping and expansive. It is a terrific bridge to the final track, Centurion, which is an unbelievable groove. Centurion has three minutes of set up leading to an unreal fuzzy drop that is so dirty it will get you evicted from your apartment.
The influence of their touring with All Them Witches can also be seen on their next full length release, 2018’s Longing To Be The Mountain. Ben McLeod from ATW produced the album. ATW, The Sword and Elder are all thanked in the liner notes. The album picks up right where Repeater leaves off, with KB experimenting with long form songs like Morning Song and the title track, and shorter jams like Sun Shivers, Cosmonaut, and Quickening. Reynolds and McVay pepper the songs with synthesizer sounds that add colour and texture to the overall compositions. Donaldson drums with impeccable precision to provide each song with a safe mooring to return to, driving the guitars forward at the same time as he holds the rhythm in check. This is most clearly evident in Eye Of The Storm. The result is a rich tapestry of expansive and flowing music full of heavy jams and storytelling that will leave the listener wanting more. Their signature build-to-sonic-explosion style does not let fans down.
The success of Longing To Be The Mountain allowed for extensive touring across North America and Europe. It also led to appearances at bigger gigs, like at Rockpalast and the Stoned & Dusted desert rock event in 2019. Anyone that has seen any of their live work knows that King Buffalo are simply hypnotizing on stage. Reynolds’ bass work is reminiscent of Geddy Lee with his complex and flowing style. Donaldson brings controlled power to the drum kit, and is ready to cut loose when the drop comes. And McVay has become a true front man, comfortable with the lead voice on guitar and the microphone.
Their next release, Dead Star, dropped in 2020 and generated all kinds of buzz in the Stoner Rock scene. Of course, the tour planned to support it got axed when the entire world went into lockdown. But the (short album? EP?) is simply fantastic. Red Star Pt. 1 & 2 continues their long form examination and has everything you’d expect from them. Echo of A Waning Star is a lament of just over 3 minutes that is near-perfect. Ecliptic sounds like the soundtrack to a John Carpenter movie and is a complete jam with serious cool 1980’s vibes. Dead Star, the title track, is almost Radiohead-esque in its evocative and regretful take on death and decay.
But the standout track has to be Eta Carinae, which has one of the greatest musical drops and turn-arounds you will ever hear. The entire song pivots just past four minutes in and becomes a 70’s anthem worthy of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. If you listen to no other tune here today, you have to check it out. It will absolutely get stuck in your head.
The band dropped their first live record, Live At Freak Valley, in 2020. This is a really nice retrospective/greatest hits album kinda deal. What stands out is just how fucking tight the band is live. With some bands, live versions veer wildly from the recorded ones - and not at all in a good way. This record is the opposite. You can clearly hear on Orion and Kerosene that KB are just that good live.
In the wake of the global pandemic, King Buffalo decided to musically capture the moment in time. They decided to release a trifecta of albums. 2021 saw them drop The Burden of Restlessness and then Acheron. The third record in this trio is 2022’s Regenerator. It is really important to consider all three records in this Triptych at the same time, for they are a sonic cycle.
TBOR is a descent into despondency. Acheron is about hitting rock bottom, and being in Hell. Regenerator is about finding a way to claw yourself back into the light. Each album stands on its own, but together they form a sweeping epic journey that we can all relate to.
TBOR is an album where the protagonist gradually loses the will to exist. There is a cry of deep frustration in Burning, a not-so-subtle reference to a plague in Locusts, a study in being confined indoors in Silverfish, and an outright statement that our hero is sinking in Loam. In fact, the lyrics tell us: “Still I press my face into the ground/I’m waiting for the hammer to fall.”
It is not a happy album.
Just when you think things have to get better, we get the 4-track jam of Acheron. In this record, our hero has fallen to his lowest point. He has descended to Hell. The title track - the first one on the album - makes this clear, when it says: “Waking up under the ground/Silver asleep on my tongue.”
Just in case you didn’t get the classic reference, Acheron is the river one must cross in Greek mythology to get to the underworld. Souls going to Hell had coins placed in their mouth to pay Charon, the ferryman, to take them across the river to Hades. So our hero did sink into the Loam in the last album, and finds himself in Hell. This theme is reinforced in Zephyr, who was the Greek God of the West Wind, and Shadows, which references what the Greeks used to call dead spirits - Shades. And just in case you had any doubt, the final track on the album is Cerberus, named after the three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades.
What is even cooler about Acheron is how it was recorded. Instead of a studio, they recorded the album underground in a cave.
Now that is commitment.
The final album in this cycle is 2022’s Regenerator. While the first two records were about descent, despondency, and hitting rock bottom, this record is about regaining hope and optimism, and finding a way to come back. We hear this clearly in the lyrics of the record’s final track, Firmament, which says: “Out of the loam I rise, embraced by the etheThe river below relieves my hands of silver” - clearly calling back to the tracks Loam and Acheron. And in case you didn’t know, in Greek mythology the Firmament means the Sky or the Heavens.
Our hero has left Hell behind, and ascended into Heaven.
References to positive mythology are all over this album, from the album art to the tracks Mercury and Avalon. It is a total jam. But the best song on the album might just be Mammoth. If you don’t like the guitar on this song, you and I can’t be friends.
I got a chance to see KB perform last year when they toured with Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. They are fucking tight. They were the opening act, but were the absolute highlight of the show. I want everyone to hear this band because they really are something special.
Go check them out.
Links to QOTSA
We know that QotSA front man Josh Homme and Kyuss invented Stoner Rock in the 1990’s. They were the genre-defining band. King Buffalo (and other bands like All Them Witches) have picked up this proverbial torch and are now bringing the sound to the next generation of fans. King Buffalo drummer Scott Donaldson is known to be a huge QotSA fan. Perhaps he saw them live when they played in Rochester in 2014 in support of ...Like Clockwork.
It is also sometimes easy to forget that Josh was not the only architect of the low desert sound. Original Kyuss Drummer and co-founder Brant Bjork wrote many Kyuss tunes and continues to be a leader in the music scene today. King Buffalo have played with Bjork at festivals three times: Freak Valley Festival, Black Deer Festival and the aforementioned Stoned & Dusted. There is also a planned collaborative project between Bjork and King Buffalo that may be coming our way soon.
The future is bright, my friends.

2023.06.09 05:20 Aerosynth929 Am I losing my mind or are there like a LOT of people boondocking in parking lots in Summerlin?

Used to live in Spring Valley but moved out closer to Red Rock about 7 months ago. I guess I never really noticed this there... but when I moved to this side of town I definitely started tracking..... does it seem like there are an oddly HIGH number of tourists/travelers boondocking in parking lots? I see it everywhere but the place I notice it most often is the parking lot of the Smiths/Terribles/Home Depot at Hualapai and Charleston. [To be clear, by boondocking I mean people overnighting in their RVs/vans/campers in parking lots.]
Is this allowed by the city? Allowed by the businesses? Is this safe... not only for the people that live nearby, but the people actually doing it? I'm not really sure how to feel about it personally... other than this is Las Vegas, so if this is some sort of loophole, at some point it will probably get out of control and all of our parking lots will look like RV parks when people realize they don't have to pay to have a night or two in Vegas.

2023.06.08 23:48 dreamingofislay Royal Lochnagar Warehouse Tasting - Final Scotland Trip 2023 Recap

Royal Lochnagar Warehouse Tasting - Final Scotland Trip 2023 Recap
On our last day in Scotland, we found a fitting finale for our wonderful trip. Thanks to u/paulusgaming for the tipoff and amazing recap of Royal Lochnagar's warehouse tasting. Alas, the distillery upped the price a lot - to 70 quid - but, even at that cost, it's well worth it.
The impressive private lounge next to our tasting room; those bottles at the back were Prima & Ultima releases, with vintage years dating back to the 1970s
  • Royal Lochnagar is the smallest of the 29 distilleries owned by Diageo, and it has a nice, cozy visitor center that punches well above its weight in amenities. In addition to the gift shop, there's a cafe and a dramming bar. And through a side set of doors to the bar, they have an impressive lounge and separate tasting room where we enjoyed our whiskies today. The lounge featured a stunning display with many of the recent Prima & Ultima releases, which are ultra-expensive and aged Diageo single malts.
  • The warehouse tasting consisted of four pours: a 1974 Convalmore, a 1985 Mortlach, a 1986 Royal Lochnagar, and a 1993 Lagavulin (a slight lineup change from u/paulusgaming's experience). What a powerhouse set of single casks. The crazy part was that one couple on our tour inadvertantly booked it, never having done a distillery tour or experience before, and it sounded like they enjoy some scotches without being aficianados. I wonder what I'd think if some of the first scotches I tried and really tasted carefully were 30- to 50-year-old cask strength expressions. Hard to imagine.
That dreamy ex-bourbon Convalmore cask
  • If you visit, I hope you get Annie as a guide. She had a wonderful sense of humor and is a devoted fan of single malts herself, which is not always the case with tour or tasting guides. She had great tasting notes and could talk anyone's ear off about the food science that goes into whiskymaking, including the various chemical compounds that give whisky flavor.
  • She was also honest about some whiskies in the warehouse having overshot their ideal age. As a cool treat, she let us nose anything we wanted among the 20-25 casks. One of the oldest was a 1975 cask from Glenury, a ghost distillery, which she said wasn't that good. Based on nosing alone, I agree; it smelled like permanent marker, and I was glad it wasn't part of the tasting.
  • Cairngorms National Park is stunning, but the funny thing about the Scottish highlands is that it has so many picture-perfect pastoral landscapes and beguiling loch-and-ben views that you don't have to visit any specific park or famous site to be gobsmacked. Almost anywhere on our trek, I could point my camera out the car at a random moment and get a postcard picture.
  • Driving around Scotland is pretty challenging as an American, not because of the left-side-of-the-road thing but instead because of how narrow and winding the ways are, and how many single-track roads we had to navigate. I'd advise future visitors not to cram too much into the itinerary because even moderate drives of two hours are more draining than one would expect.
Okay, enough chit-chat, down to business. I can't hope to match the tasting notes from u/paulusgaming's post, so these are my quick impressions.
Royal Lochnagar 1986 - Older whisky isn't necessarily better, it's just rarer. That being said, in their best incarnations, older whiskies can give different notes than younger drams or more complexity. This was quite a multi-layered dram and my notes included orchard fruits, some tartness, champagne breadiness or baked goods, and a toasty, warm finish with some spice. I haven't had much Royal Lochnagar before this but, based on Annie's description, this dram seemed like a flagbearer for the distillery's light and fruit-forward character.
Convalmore 1974 - OK, I just said age doesn't equate to quality, but this particular dram might have been the star of the show. In the glass, it had so much barrel char that it looked like someone had ashed a cigar in our glasses. The aroma evokes Scottish spring: a waft of gorse and wooden barrels sitting in the dunnage warehouse, balanced out by some pleasant aromas of citrus fruit and vanilla. Its waxy palate bursts with tropical fruit and oak, and then its long finish features lemon and coconut - a return to those first memories of gorse.
Mortlach 1985 - I'm sensitive to a smell from many sherries and, unsurprisingly, some heavily sherried whiskies. It reminds me of cooking wine: tangy, acidic, and funky. Unfortunately for me, this Mortlach reeked of that note, so it was my least favorite of the day. That being said, it had a much more pleasant, fruitcake palate and finish.
Lagavulin 1993 - I rubbed my hands together for this dram, which Annie let us pour ourselves, resulting in some heavy servings! The oldest Lagavulin we've tried, and aged in a first-fill sherry cask at that, a rarity for the distillery. Jordan almonds, caramel, and toasted rice cakes on the nose. It's burly - oily and thick - and flavors of honey and tropical fruit play off of a rich base layer of earthy peat very well. Cherries and woodsmoke on the finish.
Royal Lochnagar Distillery Hand-Fill 14 y.o. - After the tasting, Annie let us try a few bottles back in the gift shop. The hand-fill is a whopping 190 pounds but a 59.1% cask-strength, refill-sherry-aged whisky. Even suffering some palate exhaustion by this point, this was a pleasure to sip, an apple orchard in a glass. Not as complex as the 1986 single cask - I know, really going out on a limb with that observation - but perhaps something I'd enjoy more consistently.
Mortlach 15 "Six Kingdoms" Game of Thrones - Perhaps a little bit of an anticlimax. My understanding is that this is a very odd whisky that started in sherry casks before being finished in ex-bourbon, a reversal from the usual order. Nothing stood out about it, although nothing offended either. To be honest, after five cask-strength drams, what 46% mass-market release could make a huge impression?
We're thrilled that we took this trip. After enjoying Scotland so much in 2018, we planned to come back for Feis Ile 2020. For obvious reasons, those plans fell apart, but we finally got our act together last summer to plan this belated return. Already looking forward to future visits and missing the whisky, the views, and the people.

2023.06.08 21:52 themightydudehtx Family of 5 - WDW Trip May 25 - June 4'th report

Background:
We are a family of 5 with my wife and I, along with my 7 yr old and 6yr old daughters and then my 3 yr old boy. They have been to disneyland before, but I'm not sure if they really remember it as it was 3-4 years ago, and my son wasn't even around. We did go to AK 2 years ago as we were in tampa staying on the beach for vacation when hurricane elsa was coming, so we made a quick 2 night escapae to disney world and were able to get a park reservation for AK for 1 day. I'm not really counting that though as their first trip to WDW. In my mind this is their first trip as we got to do everything
Travel:
We skipped out on the last day of school on May 26'th for my kids and caught a 11 am flight that morning out of Houston and got to Orlando around 1:45 PM or so. I surprised the kids with a limo for the ride to the hotel (they've been begging to ride in one for quite a while so figured why not for this special trip).

Hotel:
For this trip we decided on staying at Caribbean Beach Resort. We got a preferred room w/5th sleeper. I was using touring plans for this trip to help with the plans / hotel requests and what not and had requested a room in barbados closer to the main road that runs by the sky liner. That room request was sent in, but unfortunately we did not get that request. Instead we were put in Martinique which ended up being roughly a 8 minute walk to the Riviera skyliner station or 10-13 minute walk to the CBR skyliner station. Overall it wasn't bad, but I really wish I could of gotten that barbados request as it would of put us within a few minutes walk of the CBR skyliner station and still been relatively close to the main area of the resort. Overall though I was fine with the room. It was what I had booked and the bonus was the beds were the ones that had the space underneath them for the luggage. I had read / watched videos that said some of the CBR beds had the old style bed frames where you could not put your luggage under the bed and with us having 5 bags, that was going to make it tight in the room. So with being able to store the bags under the bed was very nice to have.
My thoughts on this resort is that it is nice and still in the process of being refurbished, but I had 0 complaints here. Skyliner is a big plus here, and I recommend getting close as you can to the CBR skyliner station for the convenience of getting to Epcot and Hollywood studios. If you get on the skyliner at the CBR station you do not have to get off the skyliner when it hits the riviera station. However, if you get on the Riviera skyliner and go to hollywood studios, you will have to get off at the CBR station then back on, so this could delay you getting to HS if you were trying to rope drop. With that being said we did this both ways and never had an issue.
Food at CBR was just fine. Quick service had some decent options for food besides your standard chicken strips / pizza. My personal favorite option they had was a pork carnitas with rice/black beans.

Parks:
Out of our 10 vacation days we had a total of 6 park days. Originally it was just 5 park days, but it was only like an extra $150 or so to add a extra day so we took that for a total of 6 days. Our schedule looked like this:
Thursday May 25: travel day
Friday May 26: HS/Epcot
Saturday May 27: MK
Sunday May 28: Epcot
Monday May 29: Rest Day
Tuesday May 30: AK
Wed May 31: HS
Thursday June 1: Rest Day
Friday June 2: MK
Saturday June 3: Rest Day
Sunday June 4: travel day

I was going to into more detail on all the days, but realized this was going to be a crazy long post. So instead I will just summarize.

We rope dropped all 6 days and 5 of the days we stayed till closing time.
We bought genie plus for all 6 days. We also did virtual queue and ILL to ride Tron twice. Amazing ride..highly recommend it. We did an ILL for guardians..again an awesome ride and highly recommend it.
We were able to hit every ride we wanted with minimal wait times due to the lightning lanes. I think the longest wait we had was 10-15 minutes. The Genie plus + ILL + Rope dropping made it easy hit the most popular rides in each park in the first couple of hours. I realize it's not feasible for everyone to get genie plus every day, but I had budgeted for it and I wasn't looking forward to waiting in line for an hour on some rides with my 3 kids.
We did Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for my 3 kids on our second day @ MK. The girls absolutely loved getting dressed up(we brought dresses my wife and bought) and having their hair / makeup done. We did the prince package for my 3 yr old and he was super excited to get his sword and shield. Awesome experience here for them.
My main disappointment was it seemed that most of the star wars stuff was in B mode and that was with a morning ride. For example doing RoR around 9:30 AM, There was no bb8, no rey, and Kylo was B mode. Then doing Smugglers Run, there was no hondo. Thankfully the second day we were at HS, we had BB8 / Rey and Hondo back on smugglers, but Kylo was still B mode, and again that second day was in the morning.



Food:
We did the following table service restaurants
Chef Mickeys:
Topolinos Terrace
Yak and yeti
Boathouse (disney springs)

Boathouse was a great start to our trip. That was dinner for us on arrival day.

Chef Mickeys was ok..nothing great, standard buffet food, but of course we are there for the characters.
Topolinos was probably my favorite plus the view was awesome.
Yak and yeti was good, plus sitting down in the shade and air conditioning was very welcome after walking around AK for a few hours.

Overall thoughts: I thought the parks were going to be busier than they were over memorial day weekend, but it seems we lucked out.
We 100% lucked out with the weather with only a day or 2 barely in the 90's. Most of the days were the 80s' which is definitely tolerable. We also managed to avoid any crazy rain showers while at the park. We got a little rain here and there but nothing that soaked us.

We used the Disney Minnie Vans a few times, and these things were awesome. We used them a couple times to get to the parks in the morning. Was nice to just book one and know we had 10, 15 minutes till it showed up. We actually made it to MK one day before the buses for opening and were there before security even opened up to let us through. Super convenient, but a little pricey. From CBR to the parks I think we averaged around $30-$40 one way with them.

Overall we had a great time. The kids did great as we only brought a stroller for the 3 yr old, the 6 and 7 yr old we had walk and they chugged along just fine with us. Albeit at the end of the night there were many requests to "hold me", but overall they did awesome. We did generally go back to the hotel room for 2-3 hours each day. The only park did we did not do that was at Animal Kingdom

2023.06.08 18:35 KrishNews The Amazing Culture and Lifestyle of the UAE A Student’s Perspective

The Amazing Culture and Lifestyle of the UAE A Student’s Perspective
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country that offers a rich and diverse culture and lifestyle for its residents and visitors. As a student who has been living and studying in the UAE at the Britts Imperial University College for the past year, I have been amazed by the beauty, hospitality, and tolerance of this nation.

https://preview.redd.it/zdsm01mgnt4b1.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a8476e2c3e3200c8e384c77176fd8c499ed60c7a
Culture
The UAE has a culture that reflects traditional Arab and Islamic values, as well as influences from Persian, Indian, and Western cultures. The UAE is home to people from over 200 nationalities, who live and work together in harmony and respect. The UAE also celebrates its heritage and history through various festivals, museums, and monuments.
Some of the cultural aspects that I have enjoyed learning about are:
Social life:
The Emiratis are very friendly and hospitable people, who value family, friendship, and community. They often invite guests to their homes for coffee or tea, and serve dates, nuts, and sweets. They also greet each other with a handshake or a kiss on the cheek, depending on the gender and relationship. They dress modestly and conservatively, especially in public places. Women wear a long dress called an abaya and a headscarf called a shayla, while men wear a long white robe called a kandura and a headscarf called a ghutra.
Art:
The UAE has a vibrant art scene, with many talented artists, galleries, and museums. The UAE also hosts international art events such as Art Dubai and Sharjah Biennial. Some of the traditional art forms that I have admired are pottery, weaving, metalworking, calligraphy, and henna. These art forms showcase the craftsmanship, creativity, and aesthetics of the Emirati culture.
Food:
The UAE cuisine is a fusion of Arabian, Persian, Indian, and Western cuisines. It is rich in spices, herbs, rice, meat, fish, and vegetables. Some of the dishes that I have tried and loved are hummus (chickpea dip), falafel (fried chickpea balls), shawarma (meat wrap), makbous (rice with meat or fish), biryani (rice with meat or vegetables), luqaimat (fried dough balls with date syrup), and kunafa (cheese pastry with sugar syrup). The UAE also has a coffee culture, where coffee is served hot, strong, and sweet in small cups.
Lifestyle
The UAE has a lifestyle that is modern, cosmopolitan, and dynamic. The UAE offers a high standard of living, with excellent infrastructure, education, health care, entertainment, and security. The UAE also has a diverse natural environment, with deserts, mountains, beaches, islands, and oases.
Some of the lifestyle aspects that I have enjoyed experiencing are:
Architecture:
The UAE has some of the most stunning and innovative architecture in the world. The UAE boasts of iconic landmarks such as Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world), Burj Al Arab (the most luxurious hotel in the world), Palm Jumeirah (the largest artificial island in the world), Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque (the largest mosque in the country), Louvre Abu Dhabi (the first universal museum in the Arab world), and Dubai Frame (the largest picture frame in the world).
Sports:
The UAE has a passion for sports, both traditional and modern. The UAE hosts international sporting events such as Formula One Grand Prix, Dubai World Cup (horse racing), Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, Dubai Tennis Championship, Dubai Rugby Sevens, and Abu Dhabi Triathlon. Some of the traditional sports that I have watched and participated in are camel racing, falconry, dhow sailing (wooden boat sailing), horse riding, archery, and desert safari.
Recreation:
The UAE has a lot of options for recreation and entertainment for all ages and interests. The UAE has world-class malls, cinemas, theaters, parks, museums, beaches, and resorts.
The UAE also has some of the best theme parks in the world such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi (the fastest roller coaster in the world), Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi (the largest indoor theme park in the world), Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi (the largest water park in the Middle East), IMG Worlds of Adventure Dubai (the largest indoor theme park in the world), and Dubai Parks and Resorts (the largest integrated theme park destination in the Middle East).
