MCL 02-12-2013 - What's Opera, Walt?, 'Monsters University' and the Tahitian Terrace

We aim for some highbrow culture in this edition of The Mouse Castle Lounge, but end up reviewing Philip Glass' opera about Walt Disney instead. "The Perfect American" is yet another exercise in perpetuating the worst urban legends that exist about Walt. It's viewable online if you feel like trashing two hours of your life. Also, Tim Callaway previews two new books written by people who actually know what they're talking about, takes a trip to "Monsters University" and revisits Disneyland's 25th anniversary where he finds soy sauce.
