    You WIll Need To Reset Your Password!!!

    We just moved hosts on this system, and this has caused a few updates. One is the way we encode and store the encoded passwords.

    Your old passwords will NOT work. You will need to reset your password. This is normal. Just click on reset password from the log in screen. Should be smooth as silk to do...

    Sorry for the hassle.

    Other Side Of Maleficent

    I have been looking forward to Maleficent with equal amounts of anticipation and dread. On one hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, so cold and so pure, and I want desperately to see more of her and her back-story. On the other hand, she is easily my favorite Disney villain, and I would hate to see her parodied, taken lightly or ultimately destroyed in a film that does not understand this great character. The good news is that this film almost gets it right; but that is also the bad news.

    Disney To Feast In France

    The follow up to Disney’s 2013 Academy Award Winning short Paperman has been announced, and it will premiere at France’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Titled The Feast, the short looks to be based on the same stylized CG techniques used on last years Paperman, a more natural and hand-drawn look to computer animation.

    Renegades of Animation: Pat Sullivan

    Pat Sullivan became famous worldwide for his creation of Felix the Cat. What most animation histories gloss over is Sullivan’s checkered past and longtime standing as a wildcat renegade. He didn’t follow the rules. And he made damn sure to fully protect his intellectual properties.

My mom...:(

    I dunno where to put this thread, but...

    On September 14 of this year... I lost my mom...she was only 60.

    I miss her, and she was the one who got me hooked with classic and obscure cartoons. She really loved the classic cartoons that she grew-up with.

    Rest in Peace.

    Sincerely...

    MrC

    Losing a mother is always a whammy of reality. However, she has the accomplishment of raising a fine son. Keep that focus, and know that you have friends nearby.

    Thanks...

    ...my mom's memorial service had 240+ people at the service. She did touch many people. One quote that I want used when my time comes is...

    "No man is a failure who has friends". Though it was a quote by Samuel "Mark Twain" Clements...it was used in one of my favorite films... It's a Wonderful Life.

    Well...

    This Thursday will be the first anniversary of my mom's death. It was a tough year and it seemed that my family including me didn't want to do anything this Labor Day Weekend.

    It seems that I'll never be the same...

    You may never be the same, but you'll hang in there. This is coming from someone else who also lost their mom too early in life.

    Agreed. I'm not really the same either. The holidays/ birthdays are weird and very different. That's the thing. Things are different now.

    I was with my dad yesterday and I was the one trying to move on.

    But what would be better...me living near him or me living with him? I'm torn between both...
