I really don't know what to call some of these posts.
They don't have a topic,
so I think I'll just use this and that.
This weekend I'll be going up to San Francisco
to hear Brad Bird speak.
This will be at the Walt Disney Family Museum.
In case you don't know,
Brad Bird is a whiz bang director
who first came under my radar with the Iron Giant
You have seen the Iron Giant, right?
If not, rent it, buy it, find a midnight showing,
whatever, but see it.
It remains one of my very favorite films.
The ability of film makers
to imbue inanimate objects with heart and soul
is what first attracted me to animation.
The Iron Giant is the perfect example
of animation in all it's glory.
After the Iron Giant,
Mr. Bird directed the Incredibles for Pixar,
He recently graduated to live action
with the latest Mission Impossible film starring Tom Cruise.
Quite the up and comer, it should be a great event.
Even though we're no longer involved with Disney,
it seems to pop up in our lives all the time.
Today, we went to our favorite restaurant,
and this was on the wine list.
I try to keep myself aware of photo opportunities
so when I saw this guy hanging out in a parking lot,
I had to take a shot.
And that's it for today.
