    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.

    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.

    Sad news once again. Aretha Franklin, one of the most iconic R & B singers of all time, died today at age 76, after a long, undisclosed illness.

    She began recording in the early 1960's, and eventually scored her biggest hit in 1967, a cover of Otis Redding's "Respect." This went all the way to number one that summer. More hits followed, including, "Chain Of Fools," "Think," a remake of Ben E. King's "Spanish Harlem," and "Daydreaming" among others. She was mentioned in the classic Steely Dan song "Hey, Nineteen."

    She had a minor hit, "Jump To It" in 1982. Three years later, she scored a spectacular comeback with "Freeway Of Love," and other mid 80's hits. "Freeway" was one of many classic songs to have animated music videos on HBTV, part of The Funtastic World Of Hanna-Barbera. She also sang memorable duets with George Michael, Elton John, and Whitney Houston.

    RIP, Ms. Franklin. You'll always be the Queen Of Soul, and have our R-E-S-P-E-C-T. :(

    This song was a decent hit and co-written by Stevie Wonder...

    "Freeway of Love" also has sax player Clarence Clemons...Aretha Franklin is officially now on The Freeway Of Love!
