    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.

    Remember the 1966 Marvel Superheroes cartoons and their catchy music themes? Although there was a blanket theme for the show, the themes everyone seems to remember are for the 5 individual series:

    The Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and The Sub-Mariner.

    Famous lines included "When Captain America throws his mighty shield...", and "Doc Bruce Banner, belted by gamma rays..."

    But there was an additional musical phrase, maybe 5 seconds long at most, added on to each of these themes at the end of each episode (most syndicated airings I remember played it as a bumper every time they broke for commercial. Then again, each return had a different title card for that section of the episode.) This music was played against the credit for "Grantray-Lawrence Animation". The content of the music was made to dovetail with the theme for each character, but only the music for The Hulk and Captain America seemed to use a tune related to the theme. The other three seemed to be more arbitrary compositions.

    Anyone know of recordings of these musical phrases? The themes on YouTube seem to avoid the "credits" and/or have replacement logos, and the Region 2 DVDs appear to show the same Grantray-Lawrence logo, but silently.
