Disney: 1990s vs. 2000s

As I was doing my “research” for all of my classic Disney related blogs, I noticed that there were quite a few of comments that said that the movies from the ’90s are so much better than the more recent stuff. Case in point would the comment that veranasy16 made. This person said that he/she misses old Disney and the he/she won’t get bored watching stuff like The Lion King no matter how old he/she gets. Now, I’m a bit biased because I was raised on the ’90s movies and whatnot, but I have to agree with comments like that. I’m not saying the stuff nowadays is crap, but there’s a reason why the classics are called classics. I can’t really explain it. I think what it might be is the stuff from the ’90s is the best of cartoon animation. The current stuff, I think, is the best of computer animation. Although, I think stuff like High School Musical is kinda crappy. Anyway, that’s just my opinion.

Pleiades and Subaru

For my astronomy class, I had to read from the textbook. Well, in the section that I had to read recently was talking about different types of groups of stars. One group of stars that was mentioned was Pleiades aka the Seven Sisters. Just as a FYI, only six out of the thousands of stars in this group of stars can be seen with the naked eye. Anyway, in the little thing that was talking about this group of stars, it talked about how the different cultures have different names for the stars. The one name that they mentioned was the Japanese name, which is Subaru, just like the car. It also said that that’s why Subaru’s logo looks like stars. It’s because the logo is the diagram of the six stars that can be seen. Anyway, because of that, I looked both the logo and a picture of Pleiades. The logo does look like the Pleiades. Personally, I just found that interesting because I didn’t know that the Subaru name and logo were related to stars. All I can say is it brings new meaning to learning something new everyday.
