Oh Captain, My Captain

I saw Captain EO at Epcot on my recent Disney trip. I hadn't seen it since it first opened there in 1986, and I'm not even kidding when I say it brought tears to my eyes. Like all little kids in the 80's I was obsessed with Star Wars and Michael Jackson, so this attraction hit me right where I lived.  Looking at it through grown-up eyes, the whole thing is incredibly overblown and ridiculous, but nostalgia's a hell of a drug.

Captain EO! He transforms Borgs into mulleted dancers through the power of music! If you don't love that that then I don't want to know you.
