    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.

    Fifty years ago today, Norma Jeane Mortenson -- the actress, model and singer better known as Marilyn Monroe -- died in Los Angeles of a drug overdose. She was just 36.

    Though not a natural blonde, Marilyn was the prototypical blonde bombshell.

    Such was -- and is -- her popularity that Forbes' annual list of top deceased celebrity earners estimates that her estate made $27 million last year. Monroe tweets at nearly 54,000 followers from (at)marilynmonroe and has a website and official Facebook page with more than 3.3 million fans.


    While she was alive, at last one cartoon made a reference to her: In Knight-mare Hare, Bugs Bunny squares off against wizard Merlin of Monroe.


    And, in the past 50 years:


    Cool World: Holli Would sings "Let's Make Love" as she rehearses.
    Happy Feet: Nicole Kidman's character is named Norma Jean.
    Hercules: a Muse apes the "subway grate" pose from The Seven Year Itch.
    Monkeybone: Monkeybone impersonates Marilyn Monroe during his performance in the Coma Club scene.
    Shrek 2: The Fairy Godmother makes Fiona ape the "subway grate" pose from The Seven Year Itch.
    The Smurfs: Smurfette apes the "subway grate" pose while standing over a heater on the floor.
    The Tigger Movie: Tigger dresses as Monroe from The Seven Year Itch.
