Living Under A Large Rock

I volunteered at my high school tonight to briefly share my experiences and answer questions from prospective parents. Speaking to one parent about college, I mentioned my brother went to College of Santa Fe for arts. She asked if they did any animation; I said that I didn't know, but when I think of studying animation for Disney/Pixar movies, I think UCLA or USC. "But," I said, "Trey Parker and Matt Stone went to CU." "Who?" "The creators of South Park." "Oh. What's that?"
I wonder what her reaction is going to be when she googles it and looks at a YouTube clip. I know some people in Boulder live in an alternate universe, but even Coloradans without a TV knew about South Park by 2000.

In other news, New Vista's new digs at Baseline feel a lot more like a high school. They can have a play in an auditorium! that's not also a basketball court! that has acoustics! and permanent seats! on a slope!

On the other hand, all of the teachers are in the basement, which gave my always-on-the-lookout-for-the-zombie-apocalypse brain some serious wiggins.

I had a blast last January doing one of those "meet and greets" at the new N.V. I found the expansive new digs to be quite stunning. No more theatre/basketball court/dance hall/music room/community gathering/what the hell ever combine room!!
