Photos of ruined and rotting themeparks around the world

by Cory Doctorow


IO9's Vincze Miklós has collected a marvellous gallery of photos from abandoned and rotting themeparks around the world. Several of these have been featured here before, while others are entirely new to me. The Katrina-wrecked Six Flags park in Louisiana and Walt Disney World's sadly abandoned Discovery Island are both especially compelling in their graceful ruin.

James Gandolfini Talks About Feeling Scared on ‘Sesame Street’

by Justin Page

As a tribute, Sesame Street has recently released a clip from an earlier 2002 episode that features late actor James Gandolfini, who passed away earlier this week in Italy. In this clip, James talks with Zoe (a muppet on the show) about how it’s okay to feel scared sometimes. He then lists off his three worst fears, which are: the dark, getting a haircut, and large talking vegetables.

Sesame Street is saddened to learn of the death of James Gandolfini. His heartwarming appearance on our show is beloved by everyone who works here. Watching it brings a smile to our faces so we wanted to share the segment with you. Our thoughts go out to his family.
