Being merely a infant in blog years, I have yet to establish what exactly this blog is for. Perhaps for pictures. Perhaps for tirades. Or perhaps for my own entertainment. I know for sure that this blog will be VERY random!

A New Era?

Well, as all of you may know, Disney bought Pixar in a $7.4 billion dollar deal. It seems that Ed Catmull was named President of the Combined Pixar and Disney Animation Studios and John Lasseter was named Chief Creative Officer; Steve Jobs is to Join Disney's Board of Directors!

I am very optimistic about this deal. With Ed Catmull, John Lasseter, and Steve Jobs at the wheel, this is almost surely a deal made to succeed.

I was reading a comment on a blog that gave me a good laugh, “You can buy a lot with $7.4 billion…”

I know a lot of people are optimistic about this deal, but I personally, wanted to see what Pixar could do without Disney.
I'd be a liar if I said I wasn't a little sad.


On the other hand, going to a digital art school right around the corner from Pixar, we've all gotten a little kick out of all the CNN/NBC/local news stations filming the gates opening and closing for hours on end.

I would also be lying by saying I am completely thrilled, but it is definitely in my nature to be optimistic about it.

I would have prefered to see Pixar make it on its own. All we can do is hope and pray that all goes well!

Also, thanks for visiting my blog!

Dude, it's gonna be amazing. Trust me! I'm watching things out here in LA and have friends up there at Pixar. Things are happening like you wouldn't believe already, a renassaince is on the horizon.
