June is almost gone. Holy crap, the summer is slipping away and I’ve nothing to show for it! That’s the sucky thing about being an adult, summer don’t mean jack smak dookey crap. We still have to work, we still have bills to pay, and the fact that summer is going by so quick only means that school starts back soon. School clothes, supplies and kids who hate you because you’re not “funner than mom”. And honestly, I’ve been to a theme park ONE time over the summer this year. What kind of mess is that? The 4th of July is coming up, and hopefully I will remedy that. Are you living the summer to it’s fullest? I hope so, because summer fades too quickly.

I don’t know if this rumor has been reported before, but it’s the first I’m hearing about it. Innoventions at Disneyland will be destroyed and in it’s place will be the Stark Expo from Iron Man 2. Makes sense, honestly. The elder Stark character from Iron Man 2 seemed very Disney like, and Disney does own Marvel. If it’s true, it would be wise for the park to get in on the action while it’s still hot. But what would the Stark Expo at Disneyland consist of? Hopefully cutting edge experimental technology, the Iron Man suits (complete with demonstrations) and even a world class Iron Man ride or something similar. Find out more information about the rumor from IGN.

It’s always important to remember that when working with chemicals, always use in a ventilated area. That was the hard lesson for about ten workers at Busch Gardens Williamsburg as they fell ill, and some even sent to the hospital. Monday afternoon employees at Trappers Smokehouse in New France reported feeling ill. Fumes from cleaning supplies were the cause. More info.
Next Halloween, Leatherface and Michael Meyers will both appear on screen in 3D to scare the money out of your wallets. Texas Chainsaw 3D seems to be a reboot of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series. A few weeks later, Halloween 3D will hit theaters, it seems this will be a direct sequel to Rob Zombies H2. Nothing official is known. Personally I hope for a remake of Halloween 3:Season of The Witch!
