  • My lame attempt to be "Peanut"-ized by a marketing campaign.

The last few days, a lot of people are engaging in a promotional campaign online that allows them to create a rough "Peanuts" version of themselves. You see them all over Facebook.

In the spirit of "Peanut" mania, I made one that doesn't look at all like me (but at least I got to listen to Vince Guaraldi's toe-tapping jazz numbers while I did it). Nothing says fall for a certain generation like tunes such as the "Great Pumpkin Waltz."

What you may not know about the highly anticipated "The Peanuts Movie" which opens Nov. 6, is that a Virginia Commonwealth University alum, Nash Dunnigan, was the art director. Dunnigan has worked on projects including "Ice Age: The Meltdown," "Rio" and "Robots."

Here he is talking about the upcoming movie with a guy (right) who probably never would be wearing that shirt if he wasn't making bank.

The trailer for the new "Peanuts" is out, also. Here it is. Will today's kids go for it? One thing is for sure, we know many of their parents will -- oh, and while the new movie looks great, the music sucks compared to the original.
