The real news here is the $45.99 price tag. I'll wait for the non-special edition release, thanks.

Have a look at some past television commercials from the folks at Pixar.Have a look at some past television commercials from the folks at Pixar.

Shortly before Toy Story, Pixar was forced to create television commercials. The company had been losing money for years and Steve Jobs was hoping to recoop some of the money by having the company produce animated television commercials.

Daily Grind: Rested

Name: Vin (aka kevin)
How Vin feels today: Rested @ 9:40:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To enjoy this nice laid-back feeling for as long as possible.

Music Stuck in Head: Nothing Too Tough / The Backyardigans
The in-car music of choice for the little ones. Multiple times. Every car ride.

Stuff to do today:

  • Note that that the latest Pixar offering, UP, was quite enjoyable
  • Note that the Disney 3D experience is not all that it's cracked up to be
  • ...the effects were kind of neat but overall it kind of degraded the overall definition of the movie
  • Stop being such a movie experience nerd
  • Speaking of Disney, read up some more technical explanation regarding the monorail crash
  • Wait patiently to see what LucasArts has in store today for this 'special announcement' they teased all weekend on Twitter
  • My guess is still Grim Fandango
