–Dana Snyder, comedian and co-host of Drunk on Disney
“Dream It! Screw It! ambitiously combines photos, scrapped plans, embarrassing anecdotes, and concept art by award winning indie cartoonists to build an immersive farce.”
–Roger Palmer, DisKingdom.com

But if this stuff drives you 100% crazy instead of just 50%, a Viet Cong-themed Enchanted Tiki Room is still going to crack you up. It's biting, but never so much so that it feels condescending, and it's funny enough that the only person who isn't going to like it is that dude who has a jacket with 1,000 enamel pins and gets mad when kids scream on rides.
And the narrative that strings this all together, about the Billy Carter of the Disney family, is a great tragedy on its own.
So Dream It! Screw It! is one of those books that's full of so much humor and pleasing visual design that you'll probably want it on your bookshelf. The idea is that there's this legendary Disney Imagineer named "Dipp" who is super incompetent and has terrible politics as a human which both go into his tireless efforts to design Disneyland theme park attractions. Also he has a troubled stint in 'Nam, which translates to some of his work. This book is the collected notes and connective story behind such a blemish of a creative, upbeat individual. From an exact copy of EPCOT's Universe of Energy (sponsored of course by Xerox) to a Caligula-esque pleasure palace centered on Goofy and the "swinger movement," Dipp's legacy is portrayed in hilarious era-accurate photographs and lovely illustrations that harken to the most wild and funny satire coming out of Mad Magazine.
