Bolt (the movie) and Pop (the restaurant)

No image on today's post. Instead I'm just going to encourage you to go out and see Disney's "Bolt."

If you don't know more than this the opening scenes will be even more enjoyable for you.)

John Travolta gives voice to the title character and brings additional delicacy to this sweet tale. He has a lovely soft register to his voice and he utilizes it here in moments of surprise (such as when Bolt meets dogs in NYC who want to sniff his butt). Every second of his vocal performance is a delight. I will never look at Styrofoam® in the same way again.
