Cars

Saw Cars last night. Several notes:


  • Excellent CGI; although the movie is intentionally "cartoony," some of the graphics are very realistic, even if some of the motion is still a bit mechanical.

  • Note that all of the "chick cars" are Miata's

  • I would have never guessed that the blue Porsche got it's head cut off at the end

  • The best time to go to a popular movie is the late show on Sunday night. The theater was mostly empty.

  • When watching a Pixar movie, NEVER LEAVE EARLY. Some people got up as soon as it looked like the movie was over (trying to beat the traffic? WTF); there always are "outtakes" and other funny scenes at the end of the movie. For those who are extremely patient, there is one last gag all the way at the end.

Duck

Not sure how I got here, but I came across this wiki article during some surfing. Apparently duck is a funny word.

A year or so ago, I was going to register 'duckslayer.org' to use for personal/home email use. Then I found out that "Duck Slayer" is a brand of shotgun shell or something; that's not inherently funny.
