“Too many people grow up. that’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. they forget. They don’t remember what it’s like to be 12 years old. They patronise, they treat children as inferiors. Well, I won’t do that.” - Walt Disney
“We’re all born with an expiration date. No one lasts forever. Life is nothing but a grace period for turning our genetic material into the next generation. The data of life is transferred from parent to child. That’s how it works. But we have no heirs, no legacy. Cloned from our father with the ability to reproduce conveniently engineered out. What is our legacy if we cannot pass the torch? Proof of our existence – a mark of some sort.”
Actor John Cygan passed away at age 63 a few days ago after a longtime battle with cancer. He was a prolific film and voice actor that did loads of voice work for Pixar films, with roles like Twitch in Toy Story 3 and Solidus Snake in Metal Gear Solid 2.
Thank you for the childhood memories, John. You will be missed.
