To Whom it May Inspire...Persist
therelevancy: A really inspiring letter written by PIXAR star animator Austin Madison. Certain to be a pick me up to all creatives who hit the eventual creative wall. #PERSIST
The Gospel According to Boogie
Walking out of the kitchen, I flip the light switch off.
Boogie: Hey! Who turned out the lights?
Boogie: No he didn't. Jesus made the lights.
Boogie: Jesus made everything.
Me: No. God made everything.
Boogie: Jesus helped him.
Boogie: At school, we read a story about this girl and this boy.
Boogie: Yes. It was a girl and a boy and they had a pet snake. And their dad said not to eat something from a tree or they would die.
Me: He didn't say they would die!
Boogie: Uh huh! Why else would he say not to eat something? It could be poison! Let me finish.
Boogie: So their dad said "don't eat it! It's poisonous"." And the girl was hungry because she didn't have any clothes on. Well... she had on... remember when we went to the beach those taaaaall trees with the super big leaves?
Me: Palm trees?
Boogie: YES! She made a dress out of palm trees because she probably watches that show you like where the people make clothes and then they walk on a table.
Me: Project Runway
Boogie: Yes. So the hungry girl with the ugly dress on was playing and then the snake told her to eat an apple. I don't know why the snake could talk probably the same reason Scooby Doo can talk. Magic.
Me: yes. Obviously.
Boogie: So the snake was hungry but he didn't want to get in trouble since Jesus or his dad... I don't know. I forgot. Somebody said they can't eat the apple so he wanted her to eat it first so that he could tattle tale on her and get her in trouble so she can't watch TV or play with her mom's ipad.
Boogie: Yes. So her brother was playing somewhere and saw her eat the apple and he wanted some too so he ate one and then they died!
Me: They died!?
Boogie: YES! Jesus told on them because he's everywhere like a ninja.
Me: Jesus is a tattle telling ninja?
Boogie: yes who told on his cousins.
Me: Who told you that they were Jesus' cousins?
Boogie: Nobody. My cousins are always telling on me.
Me: Yeah but who said that they were JESUS'S cousins?
Boogie: Jesus can't have cousins?
Me: I didn't... never mind.
Boogie: do you want to hear about the guy who got eaten by a dolphin?
