What's New On The Island? Nothing.
So what's new on Pleasure Island? Well since my last visit, nothing. I was able to catch last night's 9:30pm presentation of Celebrate Tonight. It was as sorry as ever. I really feel bad for the DJ's who have to attempt to create fun where there is none by asking who has something to celebrate?. "OK, who's got a birthday this summer? Who has a new car? Who just got relief from their hemorrhoids?" Eventually DJ G-Clef was able to gather a dozen victims, er, I mean patrons, and get them to perform the old cruise ship classic, Five Cents, Ten Cents, Fifteen Cents, A Dollar. A small crowd gathered, some ran away when called and most just kept walking.
They are using the monitors to play music videos between Celebrate Tonight sets. CM's hide in the hut and at show time the doors and windows flip open and out they come like a knocked-over mound of fire ants.
Hey, it was good to see John from Mannequins tending bar at Laffers Cantina!
Meanwhile, the tethered balloon ride soared past the closed SoundStage Club. (The balloon ride is actually on the WestSide of DTD, not on PI.)
So if you haven't been out to the island lately, you've now seen what you're missing. Nothing.
