Have you seen this slide show of all the Pixar movies being summed up in 140 characters? It’s awesome. My two favourites are the one for Toy Story—A cowboy toy and an astronaut toy must overcome their differences to find their way back home to their loving owner. Hilarity ensues.—and the one for Up—The world’s saddest montage is followed by an old man’s trip to S. America via a lot of balloons. Neighbor, talking dog, and odd bird join. The opening to Up is one of the saddest things on film. I still don’t feel like I could make it through without a real life breakdown.

The only thing I don’t like about these is I want to read more from you but they are too long to include hashtags. If you write one include it in the comments or hit me up on Facebook so I can read it.
