Get Over Yourself, Pixar!

Pixar this, Pixar that. Living in the Bay Area where the company is based, you'd think they'd cured cancer. It's just cartoons. Yeah, I like them. I like them a lot. But I also like 'The Flintstones' and 'Yogi Bear'.

They keep running an ad on CNBC for a Pixar documentary and it shows Steve Jobs, or some nerd that looks like Steve Jobs (I think it's him...he did own Pixar for five minutes a while back, right?) and he says: 'Even we didn't have a clue about how successful it would be.'

What an arrogant ass! 'Even we'. Just think about that for a moment. 'We' who are so great and can predict everything.

And besides, that's just a lie. They spent years making these movies, hired the #1 movie and TV people to do voices...c'mon. Don't act so surprised.

And nobody knows what will sell anyway! If they did there would never be failures. All movies, TV shows, songs, games, hats, shoes, politicians...everything would be successful.

But it doesn't matter. Pixar is just a branch of Disney now. They're just part of the Wall Street bunch trying to act like they're still edgy.
