Slowly going Up…

And no, that doesn’t mean I’ve found a torrent, nor looked for one in fact (I’m not into piracy).

Fab blog post here: http://www.slashfilm.com/2009/05/31/easter-eggs-in-pixars-up/ re: hidden easter eggs in Pixar’s latest film. As documented many times I’m a Pixar fanboy and looking forward to the film. By which I mean I’m waiting. Despite the fact it’s out on one side of the planet.

((if you check out the above link to the easter eggs there are some mild spoilers, possibly. Tbh it didn’t affect anything for me more than, say, the trailers did but hey, the Internet is a lawless country and some of the inhabitants can get mighty testy))…

It did make me think and wonder though: why is there such a delay between opening dates? A Pixar film will sell whatever day it’s out on, why now in the States and yonks away in the UK? The cynical side of me instantly wondered if it was a tester for Disney/Pixar to see how the move to stereo 3d would affect piracy. If you want to see who’s pirating your films you have to test it out and what better to do that with than a cause celebre? (or at least an Internet CC which in other worlds might be seen as something less awful). I doubt this is the reason, I expect there’s a better one…. But so far I’ve seen no reason for why the film release date should be so spread apart in the digital age.

Apart from that? Weird day at work. Lesson observed, went well. Finishing off assignments tonight, despite maybe not being needed tomorrow. Hey now that’s professionalism 🙂
