I've been watching the new Lilo & Stitch series on the Disney Channel, and I have to say that I'm pretty impressed. Most Disney series based on animated features are pretty dismal, but this one has a lot going for it! Nearly all of the original voice talent from the movie is here, and they've done a great job of keeping the watercolor background look (I wonder if it really is watercolor?). The animation is also nice - Stitch always looks just right, and Lilo stays on-model most of the time. It's not a ground-breaking show, but it's definitely TiVo-worthy!
Yesterday evening the Greatest American Heroes played the Fall carnival at Galindo Elementary School (where my pal Eliza works), and as the sun went down while we were playing, the clouds all around us turned the most beautiful, brightest orange I've ever seen. It was like we were in the middle of a sunset! See, if I had a camera on my phone I could show it to you - one day I will!
Mac OS X Panther is really cool. They always say a new operating system will be faster, but this time it's no joke - my iBook is definitely peppier! There are so many subtle interface tweaks that are so nice. I'm especially enjoying the slightly condensed font (a new default, I guess) - it really looks elegant!
