    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.

Happy 95th birthday, June Foray!

    From Mark Evanier's blog today:

    Last evening, Carolyn and I attended a very nice birthday party for the wonderful Ms. June Foray, who turns 95 tomorrow. The event was arranged by Stu Shostak of Stu's Show but mainly by the lady in his life, the wonderful Jeanine Kasun. (And before I forget: This Wednesday, Stu starts a new season of his popular internet radio show and boy, has he snagged himself a great guest. Details later today.)

    The party for June was filled with friends and family and actors and animators and voice actors and me and all sorts of interesting folks. I got to meet Fred Frees, who is now following in the voice tracks of his late father, the amazing Paul Frees. Marvin Kaplan was there... and Rose Marie. Have I mentioned that Rose Marie recently recorded a role for The Garfield Show? The episode won't be completed for some time but I had her playing a witch who's the sister of the witch June plays on the series, the role she officially got the Emmy for. If you know of my love for The Dick Van Dyke Show, you can kind of imagine what it means to me to work with and get to know one of that show's stars.

    I'd better not start listing who was there because I'll leave too many out and hurt too many feelings. Let's just say June has a lot of fascinating friends and they enjoyed celebrating her upcoming birthday. (Someone asked her how it felt to be 95 and she said, "I'll tell you on Tuesday.")

    I was asked to make a speech and I had in mind to tell the best June Foray anecdote I know, which is a terrific story. But the party ran long and when it came time, I decided to skip the talk. I think I'm going to save that anecdote for a party in about five years. Because the way June's going, I'm gonna need it.

    Here's a video of the party: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISo8nX2L4q4
