Tales From The College Program: The Mysterious Larry Lewis

When I was in the Walt Disney World College Program I would typically leave work around 1:30 AM, so it was pretty common for me to come home to find all of my roommates sleeping (or at Not So Scary without me).  What was uncommon was to find one sleeping on the floor.

The lump on the floor was my roommate, Ray, he woke up when I opened the door and said his friend Larry was sleeping on the couch.  I said "alright" and went to bed.  The Vista Way rules didn't allow over night visitors and Ray hadn't mentioned anyone coming to visit, but it was 2 AM and I really didn't care.  Odds are I had probably just ran across I-4 after missing the bus, so sleep was all I cared about.

The next morning I met Ray's guest, his name was Larry Lewis.  He was an Orlando native, not a CP.  Ray had found him wandering around the Vista Way parking lot in some sort of inebriated state and let him sleep on our couch.  He had jumped the fence of the neighboring apartment complex looking for a party.  I guess Ray slept on the floor to make sure he didn't steal all our valuables (i.e. Miracle Blades) in the night.  We found out later that sometime during the night Larry woke up looking for the bathroom and peed on Ray, so it might surprise you to know that Larry ended up living on our couch for about a month.

During our time with Larry here is what we knew about him, he was 21 (the 21 tattoo on his leg let us know that), he worked as a salesman at an Orlando car dealership, and that's pretty much it.  He was a normal looking guy, kind of "fratty" with a stoners mentality.  He lived out of a back pack that contained 2 shirts, and if I remember correctly some cologne.  He'd sleep on the couch at night and disappear in the afternoon.  Whenever he heard someone at the apartment door he would run and hide in Ray's room, even though we told him it wasn't necessary.

After a few days Larry wanted to thank us for the hospitality so he "bought" us some DVD's from the World of Disney store.  The first one he brought home was one of his favorites, The Apple Dumpling Gang."  Other titles included, Finding Nemo and the live action George of the Jungle.  I have no clue how he decided which movies he was going to steal for us (let's face it Larry Lewis was not buying DVD's) but I always found his selections hilarious.

His greatest gift though was an awful mini poster from the movie Stuck on You.  I came home one day to see it hanging in the living room, Larry was pretty excited "I saw you guys had all these other movie posters, so I got you this one."  It was so bad that we had no choice but to leave it up.

Then as mysteriously as he had appeared, Larry Lewis vanished.  He didn't sleep over every night, so at first it was no big deal, his back pack and clothes were still in our living room floor, so we figured he'd come back for then, but he never did.

A few weeks later my schedule was altered so that I was working an outdoor food tent for the Festival of the Masters at Downtown Disney.  During a lull in business I noticed a familiar figure pass by my tent, it was Larry Lewis, I called out to him.  It was no surprise to find him wandering around Downtown Disney, I assumed this is where he went everyday when we went to work.  I asked him what was up.  He told me he was going down to the AMC to watch "In The Cut" because he heard "Meg Ryan got naked in it."  I wished him good luck and he went on his way.  That was the last time any of us every saw him.

We eventually went through his back pack to see if its contents would answer any of our many questions about him, but all we found were the shirts, cologne, and his social security card (which I still have).  I called the dealership he told us he worked for and asked them to speak with Larry Lewis, they told me no one by that name was employed there.

Who was Larry Lewis?  What became of him?  Did he find another apartment to crash in?  Is he still roaming the parking lot of Vista Way looking for a place to party?  And most importantly, why did Ray let him live with us for a month after he peed on him?  The world may never know.....

The Blank Check House

After the success of Home Alone movie studios did not waste anytime copying the formula (kid outsmarts bad guys).  While the worst offender was probably Three Ninjas, Disney was also guilty with Blank Check.  They even used it as a selling point! I saw Blank Check in the theater, I remember because it was the only time in my movie going life that the theater manager came out and talked to us about how the movie was filmed in Texas (which is where I live).  So, on a recent trip to Austin, I stopped by the Blank Check house. Here is how it appeared in the film: And today: As you can see, they've done quite a bit of remodeling. Not to mention the heavy plant growth which makes it almost unrecognizable. The old garage door is now a window The original entry way has been completely removed. This is the front door now: I drove around to the side and found the back gate open.  In the film, the back yard had a pool, go cart t

Film Cameras: Sprocket Rocket

The second camera I brought with me to Walt Disney World was the Lomography Sprocket Rocket. This camera is modeled after a toy Dick Tracy camera from the 1940's.  Like the Diana it is plastic and completely analog.  You wind the film manually, there is a dial for focusing distance, a switch for  shutter speed based on sunny vs. cloudy, and another switch to take the photo normally or in bulb mode (where you leave the shutter open as long as you want).  It takes 35mm film, but because the photos are more panoramic you get 18 shots instead of 36.  One of the coolest features though is that you can expose the entire piece of film, including the sprockets. Here's one that I took of the Tea Cups using Bulb Mode. Conclusion:  I'm a huge fan of this camera, no complaints.  It didn't wind itself in my back pack like the Diana did, and it even if it had, you can wind the film backwards t

Tales From The College Program: Getting Fired. Part 2

Getting my job back: Since Rat Face had gone as high as possible to get me fired, I decided to do the same when trying to get my job back.   Ed Backlor was the VP of Downtown Disney at the time, I decided to email him.   A day later I received an email from Djuan Rivers (who I just discovered is a Disney big shot now ).   Ed was out of town and had forwarded my email to Djuan.   We arranged a time for him to call me the next day.   I was pretty nervous as a sat there staring at my phone waiting for him to call.   I didn’t know where the conversation would go.   Djuan was very friendly, he had read my email and asked me some more questions about the firing.   I left out the part about how everyone eating for free so I wouldn’t get anyone else fired.   He told me the typical “well, I know it’s not a lot of money, but if everyone gave away $3.25 worth of food, it would really hurt the company.”   He said I could reapply with Disney in 6 months and when I did I would most likely be as
