    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.

The Simpsons are renewed for two more seasons!

    The Show That Never Ends has been upped to 32 seasons, yes...The Simpsons!

    If a Nuclear Fallout was to happen...or The Apocalypse...The Simpsons will STILL be around!

    On a positive note: creator Matt Groening still collects royalties on the show, and donates a goodly portion to UCLA's fine arts college, where students of animation can get funding for skills development in the animation industry. Thus, as long as The Simpsons is airing, new animators are being grown in the greenhouse of UCLA Fine Arts. I'm good with that. :)

    Here's Homer Simpson's reaction to the news...


    But really, if FOX wants to keep losing more money (as each new episode is now like the TV equivalent to a box-office bomb), go right ahead. Less and less people will watch, and for all we know they might end up switching to Flash animation, so it'll end up always looking like those parts of the HD intro animated in Flash (like Marge, Maggie and Gerald at the supermarket.)

    It seems that Al Jean wants to keep The Simpsons on as long as possible...but people who grew-up with this show when it was must-see TV has seen the show in a rapid decline!

    Even if Matt Groening dies...I'm sure they'll find a way to keep The Simpsons on TV...even if it goes to FX!

    I enjoyed the show from the very beginning and through the next 15 seasons or so. After that, it got stale for me.
