According to my kids, I tell the best stories. \:\) About a year ago, I got sick of reading the same books over and over and over. Now the routine is that they each get to pick one book (as long as I didn't read it yesterday), and then they get tucked in and I tell them a Daddy Story. The famous and mush looked forward to Daddy Story is always different, but sometimes the same cast of characters lasts a few bedtimes. I really look forward to it, and sometimes I think they're so good I think I should start a blog just to write them down for posterity. \:\)


That's really cool, Peter. Storytelling is a lost art nowadays.

When I was a kid I enjoyed staying the night at my best friend's house because his dad made up bedtime stories for us. One of the games we used to play with his family was a round-robin type story where one person would start, then the next person would continue, and so on. What a creative way to spend time. Some weird stories we made up, too!

Sometimes I try to do stories with morals, sometimes I aim for funny, sometimes I just try for a good story.

Last night, I made their favorite stuffed animals (a hedgehog and a pelican) the main characters in a buddy story. The hardest part was coming up with a situation where a hedgehog and a pelican would cross paths: The hedgehog lived at the top of a hill near the beach and stumbled down it and into the ocean while foraging for food. The pelican rescued him, and that's how it all started.

I can't shut down the logic center of my brain even when making stuff up. \:\)

Ha ha. I know how it goes. I always look for some plausibility in stuff I make up.

It makes it better that way.

I'm picturing a spinning blue hedgehog, rolling down the hill and taking out everything in his path.

SEGA!!!

There was some rolling later on, but down a nice grassy slope and into a bush. You should have seen the pelican try to roll down that hill, though.

One cool thing I'd like to share is that I use the same characters in my stories for Nolan that my Mom used in stories for me!

I grew up on land with pastures and woods, so the critters of my stories were/are Bucky Beavertooth, Ssst the Snake, Barney Bear ...

As a result of Barney Bear, my son knows a LOT about honey. "It comes from a beehive! Bees make it! It's sweet! Bears eat it! It's yummy, Daddy!"

Found this story via metafilter last week. Now, I knew Pixar was cool, but this is just amazingly cool.

Wall-E and the Crying Girl

In related news, Wall-E stands up to repeat viewing quite well, and makes a great date movie, too!

Hmmmm, Axiom is having some sibilance problems with their web board. That sounded like you just said "Ssst the Snake".

I need to see it in a real theater now. That story was awesome. I shake my first at Pixar for rejecting me when I applied way back in 2000.

Thanks for sharing, Adam - cool story indeed.

I'm sure my Wall-E Blu-ray will need to stand up to mucho repeat viewing. I'm telling Santa to put it on my Christmas list.
