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).

"I plan to start teaching him server administration next summer."

Server down, someone spilled Ovaltine into the RAID.

The real Fark reference was a five minute gorgor slideshow that was cut from the final print. The resulting NC-17 rating seemed limiting to the studio. Censorship blows.

Drew teaching Storm server administration? You mean we'll get a sober admin for once? ;)

So essentially Pixar sponsored this link and Drew offers this nugget in return.

EVERYBODY RUSH OUT TO SEE TS3 NOW!

Oh... and watch for a reference to Fark.

kcfarker: Oh... and watch for a reference to Fark.

that may or may not actually be a reference to park ... the only thing that makes any sense. it looks like fark ... but it's dubious.

Does Andy have to be at the gym in 26 minutes?

WienerButt: Does that mean Andy was going to Clemson?

Well I do know this one guy named Andrew...

Talon: 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.


Pretty much what I was thinking. In real life, an unintentional gap, in an animation, either an intentional one meant to look like real life (where unintentional ones happen all the time), or a easter egg for Fark.

Remember though, they do intentionally add imperfections to Animations, to seem more realistic. This could be there, simply to seem more lifelike and hve nothing to do with fark. I mean, 3:30 doesn't mean a lot... now if it was 4:20 at Fark, I could believe it was an intentional reference for here.

/Leaning towards the explanation that it was intentional to seem lifelike, not a Fark reference.
//Or at least, not an officially sanctioned one.
///May slipped in by an artist, but if I were to do it, I would have had 4:20.

Heh, saw the movie last night, before I saw this thread...for what it's worth, I said to myself, did that just say fark, or do I spent too much time on the internet.
