06:04 pm - Tragic news.
Joe Ranft, one of the main creative forces at Pixar, was killed yesterday in a car accident. Not only was he a great storyteller and creative vocal artist, but he was one heck of a guy and described, by more than one person, as "the heart of Pixar."

It's also just heartbreaking to read how the company just effectively ground to a halt today, trying to process it all. Alas for Joe, alas for Pixar, alas for us.

Joe had both the best job in the world, and the talent to deserve the best job in the world. Damn.

That's terrible. He was only 45, too.

God, that's awful news. Pixar may not be the same without him.
