Tuition Prices

From article on Yahoo! today:

"A pricey four-year private college will set you back by a lot more, however: Bates, Connecticut, Middlebury, Union, and Colby Colleges all had tuitions of more than $50,000 per year, including fees and room and board. After scholarships and grants are taken into account, the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., is the most expensive, at $39,672 per year."

Man! And people say CalArts is expensive! So many people want to go to Art Center College of Design rather than CalArts, claiming it's "cheaper"! Whew! Funny how CalArts is not mentioned on these kinds of articles!

I feel like a soldier
Marching through a field of mines.

Explosions going off all around me
Marching towards God knows what.

The sound is excruciating
I feel deaf, dumb, and blind.

I have no path
I have no plan.

I feel pain
The hits connect and I am wounded.

And still I march forward
Please God, let it stop soon.

Article on Cars 2

Article on Cars 2

The Tokyo party sequence was inspired by an experience Lasseter had in Italy while researching the "Cars" sequel with his co-director, Brad Lewis. The filmmakers were following Red Bull's Formula 1 racing team, observing their pit crew, noting the design of their cars, and, one night, attending a glamorous party the team threw. Lasseter donned his own take on formal wear — a blazer over one of his trademark Hawaiian shirts — and strode into the event at a modern art museum in Milan.

"It was unbelievable how beautiful the people were," he said. "Models. Everybody dressed in Armani. I just felt totally out of place. This beautiful museum, the lighting, the music, the glitz, I felt like a little animation geek."

"Sometimes you need to go to the ghetto, not only to see how far you've come, but to remind you why you don't want to go back..."

I am so spoiled at CalArts. I miss school.
