Yesterday I went to Disneyland with my kids. After the usual morning of the fancy new Disney rides, equipped with the newest technology…we found our way to the “Captain EO tribute.” I was surprised how good the show was. Better than I remembered. Maybe it’s nostalgia. Maybe it’s sympathy. Or maybe it’s that making a great ride isn’t about wowing your audience…but entertaining them.
I know I’m late on the Mark Linkous passing. But I didn’t feel right jumping into a list as quick as I could. Wanted to give it time. Give Sparklehorse a re-listen. Mark Linkous was never someone who relished in wowing his audience. But he certainly knew how to entertain them. He will be missed.
