Things We Saw Today: Pixar’s Inside Out Explains How Memories Work
I like Goofball Island, too.
We all know Pixar has a certain… way with emotions, and their upcoming movie, Inside Out, proves it. Listen to Amy Poehler explain how memories work and how they affect peoples’ personalities in this clip from the Inside Out movie. Or, just listen to Amy Poehler. Because that’s always worth it.
- What’s that? You want more female-driven post-apocalyptic media? Well, Megan Ganz (writer, Modern Family), and Adam Reed (writer, Archer) are working on a pilot for a show called Cassius & Clay. It’s described as “a comedy in the vein of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and centers on two women living as bandits in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic America.” Yes. Yes, please.

- Hong Kong based Pizza Huts are getting something that will surely be making its way to the states soon: a pizza box that can be turned into a projector for your phone. All you need to do is take the pizza out, use the included little phone stand, and place the lens on the front of the box and bam, you’re stuffing your face with pizza while watching YouTube videos of raccoons stealing cat food.

Last week, hordes of geeks and fans descended on San Jose for Fanimecon, and there was some incredibly rad cosplay. Check out this amazing Korra and Asami flapper-inspired cosplay from @amethyst_leon and @sushimonstuh. (via Fashionably Geek and David Ngo)
- Hidden Triforce is currently running a “Triforce of Wisdom Scholarship” essay contest where an applicant can receive $500 towards college.

- SNL cast member Pete Davidson did a totally hilarious livetweet while he marathoned the entire Harry Potter movie series. Personal favorite quote? “Draco tried to rat out Harry and the gang for goin to Hagrids but ended up getting detention as well. Professor McGonagall is a true G.” True G indeed. (via Pajiba)
Woo! That’s some stuff right there. What’d y’all see?
