Pixar and Thrones

Pixar Canada opened today! And I also read today that Sony Animation and ILM are planning on opening studios in Vancouver too!!!

Here's a really awesome video they made for the opening. Hearing John Lasseter talk about where I live is just like when you're at a concert and the band talks about the city they're in and everyone's goes nuts:

In other news, I've been really addicted to a book series I've started called A Song of Ice and Fire. I just finished the first book, A Game of Thrones, a couple days ago and I rushed out to get the second one that night.

I haven't been this into a book series since Harry Potter o.O! If you like to read, read this!

Listen to this:

Malajube - MontrĂ©al -40°C I was looking for a song to use for my french music project and I wanted to use this one but my teacher would probly rage about some of the lyrics. So I had to settle for another song. But I still really like this one.

Capilano Portfolio

I should update more often, I've starting neglecting this blog. Anyways here's my portfolio I submitted for the Commercial Animation program at Capilano University. I should hear back from them with a decision in about 3 weeks.

I thought I'd start something new as well. I want to incorporate music into my blog so I've decided to put a 'Listen to This' at the end of my blog posts. So...

Listen to This:

People who know me well know I'm a big fan of The Shins:). They were rumoured to be coming out with a new album this year but when I found out they were going on hiatus so James Mercer could pursue another project...I died inside a little. But that didn't last long because his new band, Broken Bells, is awesome! Listen to Broken Bells - The High Road and if you like it I urge you to buy their album. It's pretty swell!
