Don't Play With That. You'll Go Blind

The weekend has flown by, and we didn't even do all that much.

Yesterday, we took another trip to the local museum to see if we could score tickets to the Pixar exhibit, and armed with the knowledge that admission usually sells out during the first hour, we got there bright and early. Celebrating 25 years of Pixar, the exhibit was awesome and very informative in terms of the company's background and the movies created since its inception. One of the little tidbits I was unaware of was that Pixar sprouted from LucasArts' Computer Division Graphics Group in 1979. Lots of sketches, drawings, storyboards and amazing character molds were on display, with a lot of the artwork so amazing that I'd rather have it hanging in my living room than paintings from some of the most renowned artists of the millennium.
