Friday night was great!

Friday night at TASTE was amazingly fun! We met some kick ass "Last of the Cool People" like Eric_W and Joe. Hadley's Hope rocked as always and we all drank too much. Kyle and I, even though I was pretty smashed, did a duet of "If We Can Dream It...". (Above)

I had a pocketful of gifts, actual film strips of the Red Head girl, that Chief and I handed out.

More pics soon:)

Hadley's Hope

MVT Cool People unite!

Friday, May 28th, Chief and I will be enjoying "Hadley's Hope" (the only band endorsed by Mesa Verde Times) live at TASTE!

Info here

If you're within range or you're a millionaire and you feel like flying in from South Africa, we invite you to join us and take in this kick ass band. If we all beg hard enough they might even play their cover of "The Universe of Energy" which is nothing but total bliss.

Reasons for coming if you need reasons:

1. LISTEN to incredible music
2. WATCH Hoot and Chief consume alcohol.
3. SEE our wives join us in our drunken foolishness.
4. AFTER the show join us outside with Kyle and the gang as we chat about nothing but Horizons and EPCOT Center until the wee hours.
5. WITNESS the Incredible instrument known as "Century 3".
6. GAZE upon the only amp in the world with the Horizons logo painted on it!
7. EAT a basket full of huge tater tots!

Leave a comment if you'd like to join us!

The Death of EPCOT Center

Here's an excellent observation from Mesa Verde Times member and chief of all future living religious matters Bishop Kyle.

" I have always wondered at what time WDI 'jumped the shark' and ruined what was the mighty EPCOT Center. Here is written proof, published by Disney, that by the late 80's they were done trying to expand peoples
minds and make them think. The paragraph speaks for itself. Unreal. ("Since the World Began: Walt Disney World")

Pieces of Horizons history like this make it all worth it. Enjoy this small bit I can give to you for all you gave to me."


I've never been a fan of that book or it's author. I think it's a dismal piece of shit. -Hoot

Hoot loses his mind

Hi folks. Before I lose my mind let me welcome all 202 of you to Mesa Verde Times. I hope the people who are new here get a kick out of it and if you have any questions feel free to write to us at To our old pals, there's more to come so stay tuned.

Ok. Time to blow my stack. Remember how I said we'd be posting news articles from 1983 regarding our beloved Horizons? I was digging through our archives today and found this gem.

This article is from the Orlando Sentinel, Oct. 1st 1983 and whatever hack ass wrote it wasn't credited. We already know that Horizons wasn't a "smash" hit when it opened but this clown thinks he's Mr Funny and tries to poke fun at it only to say nice things at the end. A futile attempt at saving his job as King Douche Bag Intern at the Sentinel.

First he fucks up by assuming that GE developed the attraction. "Few visionaries work for corporations". Walt Disney was a visionary you ass clown and he nor his staff worked for GE.

"offers little that is startling" ....REALLY?? I suppose this shit-hook flew to the Sentinel building in his Hover Lift. He even goes as far as to say that if you saw Star Wars you'd have no need for this attraction.

After this initial bashing he comes to his senses and unknowingly writes about the things he was impressed by. You see, he tried to come at Horizons like "Mr Funny of all cynics" but found himself unable to be anything but amazed after all. Here's the rest:

I believe that this shit head was "born again" 1/4 of the way through writing the article! He tried to be negative but the Horizons experience got the better of him! AND then, and then and THEN, at the end he prays for a hopeful tomorrow! He's glad that Horizons didn't show the horrors of future living. My hate for this slime-slit has turned to love because I know that in this ONE article that he ghost wrote in his very short career as a writer, he found himself.

More to come if we can all stomach it.

I guess we've reached the point where our blog is popular enough to attract spammers from all corners of the globe! That's really saying something for sure.

I'll try to do a better job of deleting these comments even though I like it when Chinese people tell us that God loves us. I'm not into the selling of handbags as much.

Just don't click on anything Chinese and you'll be fine.

Even The Robots See It

In honor of us reaching 200 followers, here is a new video! heh

Anyways, in the beginning of this shot you get to see Hoot setting up to record Grove Shot 2. And then you get to see me (well, you dont really get to 'see' me, but you know what I mean) crawling around underneath our favorite spot, the grove, in order to get to the control tower monitors. I think this shot is pretty neat because it gives you a feel for what it was like crawling around under there. And by the end of this video, you should have the control tower dialog memorized! :) Enjoy!

p.s. And for those that might have missed our earlier post on it, here is an easy link to one of the other monitors shot from Hoots camera.
