Well, I'm sure by now you're all dying to know how my, *cough*, "date" went. That shouldn't be in quotes really. It wasn't a "date," it was just a date. There, i said it. And the front page headline tonight is: Date Went Fine. Really, he was very nice. He drove, so he didn't drink anything. I skipped dinner, so my 2 pints made me rather merry. He was very pleasant, we talked comfortably, none of those awkward pause moment thingys. He was a gentleman, didn't try anything dodgy or inappropriate. Not the kind of glaringly handome guy I'd get water-kneed for from across the bar, but looks aren't everything. So there you go. Pretty unexciting really.

Oh, but do take a look at this article on Disney buying Pixar. It's not really news (I knew it was going to happen months ago), but pay special attention to the frame (from Finding Nemo) the writer has selected to illustrate the corporate takeover. So much for objective reporting at the BBC! Hehehe.

That's Pixars quality control fucked then. Toy Story 1 and 2, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, The Incredibles vs...well, Disney hasn't put out a decent cartoon since The Sorcerers Apprentice. At least. Spirit of the Stallion? Brother Bear? Holy and fuck!

If you don't believe me, look what happened to Aardman when they started playing with the big boys. From the genius of the Wallace and Gromit shorts to the shite of Chicken Run. I rest my case.
