    (I would say, gearing up for the Hollywood Studios reopening and more signs of the recession to come)

    February 22, 2008-The first images of the new Hollywood Studios appear to the press. Notably, except for the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, no attractions are tied in with any preexisting property any longer, but now are colorful parodies of the like. No reference to Disney as a whole, or any of its ownerships, like ABC, remain, though it is announced that stars of ABC programming will continue to host fan conventions and appear in the park, though under certain conditions.

    March 3, 2008-Invitations are officially sent for the re-opening festivities on the 15th, with a veritable collection of Hollywood stars to attend. Nirvana's performance will occur at the Hollywood Hills Amphitheatre, formerly home of Fantasmic!, and now transformed into a 10,000-seat performing arts venue with state of the art bells and whistles to spice up performances.

    March 8, 2008-Planet Hollywood, and Cobain and Theron's investment, takes a hit in its stock price (the only thing to date they are involved in that is publicly traded), though just abut every company traded on the NYSE is similarly affected.

    March 15, 2008-Disney's Hollywood Studios reopens to grand fanfare, a loving dedication by Michael Eisner, followed by his retirement speech, and Bob Iger giving his own dedication and acceptance of the position of CEO. The press enjoys the revamp considerably, and call it "incredibly inventive, thoroughly original, and true to the intent of the original park. There is truly nothing else like it in the world!" The new rethemed attractions are praised considerably, and Nirvana's breaking in of the 10,000 seat amphitheater is similarly well-received, complete with laser displays, LED light sculptures, fireworks and fog effects.

    (I imagine there will be some posts about the filming of Bruno coming up, like the fashion show and Straight Dave event.)

    April 10, 2008-A viewing party for the final cut of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is held at Skywalker Ranch, and the members of Nirvana and Springbok are invited. At the party, enthusiasm is generally warm, though with some reservations over apparent gaps of logic in the events of the movie.
