Pixar has a heart: fulfilling a little girl’s last wish

When I knew about this story, I couldn’t help but cry:

Pixar grants girl's dying wish to see 'Up'

This story, although sad, brings up to me a lot of hope for the humanity and how about we care for each other. About how a really big company as Pixar (that’s part of an even bigger company: Disney) cares about a dying little girl whose very last wish was watching “Up”--and got granted. And about the things that we complain everyday, that are really small compared with the suffering this brave girl came through in her short life.

Rest in peace, Colby. Now you’re up in the sky, as you wished :’)

Behind The Ears: The Making of WFRR

And now, thanks to YouTube user 323232user (yup, that’s his username) we’ve got the documentary included in the two-dvd version of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” from Touchstone’s Vista Series, named: “Behind The Ears: The Making of Who Framed Roger Rabbit”. It compliments the previous documentary I posted some time ago and expands it with some incredible footage like the first animated test of Roger Rabbit (shown to Disney executives, that were at first reluctant to invest a huge amount of money in Roger’s movie), and a lot of scenes concerning to the filming of the movie:

Thanks, 323232user, for sharing this cool documentary with us!

Roger Rabbit in: Movin’ to the Music

Our friend Alexander sent to me a very funny comic featuring our beloved, clumsy bunny and his errands as a moving service clerk, and how he tries to deliver a brand new piano for one of his closest comrades… Better let’s read about this =3

Every thumbnail is clickable, and will open in a new window:

Thanks a lot Alexander, for sharing this funny comic with us!! =3

About a baking bear and a very old duck

Today I got another walking Bimbo bear like the one I got some months ago. What makes him different is that he really comes complete, still holding his trademark bread loaf and sporting his ear tag. But like the other one, he’s supposed to walk and dance… Although he didn’t. Maybe is because his age. Anyway it’s OK to me, since the odds of finding one of those bears in complete condition are very, very low, and I got this one for just a couple of dollars! =D

Also I found a very interesting toy:

He’s a vintage plastic Donald Duck doll, perhaps from the 60’s or 70’s, which I got for less than a dollar. Even when he looks very played-with (with some scuffs, stains and even cracks in the neck joint) and his clothes are very worn and faded, I really love him. It seems to me like if some kid (maybe he’s now a full-fledged adult) enjoyed playing with him a lot and had a lot of fun doing it, which adds some sweetness to his smile. Now he comes to me for having a second chance, and I won’t turn this little fella down. Donald deserves to get some love again =3

My office desktop

That’s how my office desktop looked the last friday. It seems like I have some fun while working, right? Well, in fact… Yes, I do =3

Bambi & Thumper

Bought them last monday on a online bidding website (not eBay) and I got them this afternoon. Bambi is huge, and is made of floppy plush, very soft and smooth. Thumper is small, but it’s the most cute of both. His plush is very soft as well, and he looks very innocent and sweet.

I’m really in love of this couple, but specially, I adore Thumper. My little baby bunny… Mi bebĂ© <3

Huge collection update (and I mean it)

Long time no see you, guys! Since the latest news concerning to Roger Rabbit, I haven’t found more info about the proposed sequel (or prequel, or whatever it is) for “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”. Instead, I’ve found a lot of interesting things for my collection, which I want to share with all of you:

Eddie Valiant, Roger Rabbit and Judge Doom vintage action figures

Easter Thumper Plush Doll

I recently fell in love with Thumper, from the Bambi and Bambi II movies. After all, he’s Roger Rabbit’s uncle =3

The most cute thing about this plushie, is that he’s dressed… As the Easter bunny! How sweet, a bunny dressed up as a bunny:

Now, about my other finds…

 Huge Thumper Plush; push his hand and he plays a sweet tune

 Thumper Beanie Doll and Sam (official mascot from the 1984 Olympic Games, held in Los Angeles, USA) Little Plush Doll

 Another Roger Rabbit Vinyl Figurine

And one awesome find I’m very proud of:

 Optimus Prime, as a cool Dodge Ram SRT-10, from the Transformers Alternators series

And that’s all of my latest finds in toy stores, thrift stores and flea markets. Sure I spend a lot of money getting all those items, but I’m a compulsive shopper and, well, I can’t help it ;)
