Bless my fellow technicians as well.
It's more than rehearsed; it's choreographed. Every member of the crew has a specific set of jobs to do in those 1:40 that they roll the opening credits. They cut it close, as you can see but you can count on them to pull it off. Every time.

commented on What the Northwest Wildfires Look Like from Space
Last week I drove from Seattle to Spokane and back for work. The east side of the state is really hell right now. Hot and smoky! Driving back Thursday, visibility was like a light foggy day. I drove past an area of a roadside brush fire; the red white and blue "East Interstate 90" sign was lying on the scorched grass, the post burned off at ground level.

commented on The New Peanuts Movie Is Not an Autobiography
Agreed. I grew up on Peanuts. I got sad when I could see the shakiness in Sparky's hand in the artwork; the less imaginative writing compared to previous years. When he retired, and passed away the day after the last Sunday strip ran in the paper, my tears were part sadness, part a reaction to the poignancy of his life's work, and his life ending almost at the same moment. Oh, and Charlie Brown was an autobiographical character.
