We went to the Pixar exhibit at OMSI with friends yesterday. It was focused on the math and science behind the movies. Really good – tons of hands on things to do, great interviews that I had not seen yet, giant replicas of favorite characters you could pose with.
Brian’s animation skills were predictable better than the rest of ours.
Jeff and Amy find Wall-E
I feel super lucky that in the last two years I have gotten to go to three animation exhibits which have been over the top good (Jim Henson, LAIKA, Pixar). Also I want the monster wall that this exhibit had:
Laika exhibit – that’s Coraline’s head behind me (and others). Really cool to see. Portland Art Museum rocks.
This is an interview with my friend Nate, who is awesome. It includes his animated short too! Go Nate, this rocks.
My friend Nate is awesome.
Here’s what some other people think.
If you haven’t seen this yet, here is a really cool short film called Alma from one of the Pixar animators, Rodrigo Blaas. It’s only online for a short while, so if the link is dead, it’s too late.
First, here’s a map someone at very small array put together showing by state, the places mentioned in “Missed Connections” for Craigslist, broken down by Male for Male, Male for Woman, Woman for Male and Woman for Woman.
Notably, Oregon has New Seasons for one, which cracked me up. (New Seasons is the local sustainable organic grocery store that Brian and I like and shop at. And which has now caused me to boycott Whole Foods, for those of you checking in from a distance)
I am also sad that one of Wisconsin’s was Walmart. Booo hisssss.
Also notable are the blanks for woman for woman – some states not represented. Not cool man, not cool.
Second link posted to a website I frequent (warning, a short video, probably with music but I watched it muted): Notebook.
There you go. Two things that made me happy on the internet.
