While you probably don’t have an hour or so to sit and watch this live-action remake of Toy Story, you only need to spend a couple of minutes watching to see how amazing it is.
This 2-minute video about the day Pixar almost deleted Toy Story 2 is making the rounds today. Definitely amusing, since we’ve all done something totally stupid without a backup before.
If, like me, you have to see a video linked to about six-hundred and eight times before you deign to watch it, consider this link six-oh-eight. This video that just combines scenes from the Pixar films is oddly mesmerizing and charming. If you need a little pick-me-up, this seven minute video ought to do it.

Here we have a picture of Matt who appears to be drawing the Pixar logo on the whiteboard wall. What you don’t see is that Jess had drawn the word Pixar on the wall earlier in the day. However, Matt could not abide having a less than stellar reproduction. If you look closely you’ll see has a printout of the Pixar logo in his hands.
That’s us, nerds who always strive for perfection.
THIS JUST IN! Matt has shared a picture of the original logo drawn on the wall:
