    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.

    Before I begin this post, yes I reverted to my old name.

    Now for the sad news. Country legend Kenny Rogers has died at age 81.

    He began his career with the New Christy Minstrels, a vocal folk group whose roster also included Kim Carnes and Barry McGuire, both of whom also became successful solo artists. After he left the New Christy Minstrels, he formed The New Edition, a band famous for "Just Dropped In," and "Something's Burning." They even had their own TV show in the early 1970's. He also advertised for a home guitar course.

    Then in 1977, he had his first solo hit, "Lucille," about a guy who discovers that a woman he meets in a bar is still married. It inspired a joke about a loose wheel(couldn't resist). From there, he had many other country hits, more than half of which crossed over to the pop charts. These included duets with Kim Carnes, Dottie West, Sheena Easton, and Dolly Parton. "Lady" and "Islands In The Stream" were the only ones to hit number one. He was also one of the many singers on "We Are The World" by USA For Africa.

    He was also an actor, appearing in TV movies based on his classic songs: "The Gambler," "The Gambler, Part Two," and "Coward Of The County." And the theatrical film "Six Pack."


    RIP. Mr. Rogers. You will be missed. :(
