Some random quick notes:

So it appears that someone in Pixar managed to slip a Fark mention into Toy Story 3. I know some folks over there, so I asked them to make sure it wasn't just an accident. Their answer was that they can't officially confirm it. So I'll take that as a yes. Thanks for that guys. I was able to point it out to Storm and Chance when we saw the movie yesterday. Actually Storm caught it first, he's quite the reading machine these days. I plan to start teaching him server administration next summer.

The East Bay Fark Party this saturday was a blast, fun was had by all. Luckily my phone was confiscated by Joe Peacock before I could tweet/FB out too many ALL CAPS messages to everyone. Also in case you were wondering, it's a lot harder for me to mess with Fark's configuration via phone, so don't expect a lot of iPhone-fueled drunken rampages in the near future or anything.

I'm planning on watching the US World Cup game somewhere in Lexington on Wednesday, but I'm still not 100% sure right now where I'll be going. I only recently discovered the amazing burgers at Two Keys so that's one possibility, however they don't open til 11am. That being said I watched Mexico vs South Africa in there two weeks ago and the bartender said come back anytime. If anyone wants to join please drop me an email (drew[nospam-﹫-backwards]kr­af­*com).

Honestly, it looks like Park to me... where there was a gap as the pen was writing. However, because this is animation, that gap must have been intentional.

I think it may have been a shot out to fark since they intentionally put that gap in there to make the P look like an F, but it is "supposed" to look like "3:30 at Park" for the rest of the viewing audience.

One of those rivalries where you can hate a school even if no one in your family ever went to either school; and even if you had finished high school and stayed in that state you most likely would have gone to the school you hate in order to get the major you want.

I've tried drugs, but nothing gets me high enough that a well-made movie, because it's suitable for children, is beneath me.

Oh and the actual statement comes out. Try not being passive aggressive, it will make your point a lot more clear.

I never said the movie was beneath me, just that I wasn't going to watch it. You infer a lot from a simple statement. I'm an adult, the movie is for children. I've seen and enjoyed lots of children's movies (as an adult and a child), that doesn't mean that I go out of my way to view them. The thing that I was more referring to, was that it was kind of a dick move not to post what the reference was (considering we're adults here, and the movie is oriented towards children).

Have a great day, try to find a reason to be happy, or else what are you doing waking up every day?
