southern california is a made up place. a pleasant illusion. and I lived here for two and a half years during my education. lots of industry wizards at the convention.

virtual wheelchair flying.
right next to (but not inside the gates of) Disneyland - this purgatorial place, a weird kind of protected suburban shopping mall, is Downtown Disney.
