I saw a local celebrity today, just five minutes from my house at Borders. As soon as we walked in I saw a guy who looked a little familliar, but I wasn’t really sure where I had seen him. When I moved in for a closer view, I recognized him instantly. It was Tony Baxter, Senior Vice President of Creative Development at Walt Disney Imagineering.
There’s a good photo of him at the top of this old article. (Incidentally, he was wearing the same striped shirt today that he had on in that picture.) I didn’t say anything to him. He was checking out the drama section of the DVDs. He was in there for a really long time, so I think he was looking for something specific.
I picked up a copy of the Cowboy Bebop movie and just finished watching it a little while ago. It was pretty good – like an extended version of a regular episode. If you liked the series, you’ll like the movie.
