    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.

Three Veterans.

    There was no other way to say this. Three live action movie and TV veterans have passed on within the past week.

    The first was Johnny Crawford, who began his career on The Mickey Mouse Club, and then played Lucas McCain's son Mark on the western series The Rifleman. He also became a teen idol who recorded a few Top 40 hits in the early 1960's. He died on April 29, 2021, at age 75.

    Another who died on April 29, 2021 was Billie Hayes, who was in many stage and screen productions, but is perhaps best known as Witchiepoo, the main villain of the classic Sid And Marty Krofft show H. R. Pufnstuf. Wilhelmina Witchiepoo was forever scheming to steal Freddie, the magical talking flute owned by Jimmy, but invariably failed. She reprised this role for Pufnstuf: The Movie. Two years later, she played Weenie The Genie in another Krofft production, Lidsville. She also played Witchiepoo in The Paul Lynde Halloween Special. Then, in 1981, she played the female spy O'Reilly, during General Hospital's Ice Princess story arc. She was 96.

    Finally, we bid farewell to Olympia Dukakis, whose acting career included TV, Broadway, and of course, the big screen. She won the Oscar portraying the mother of Cher's character in Moonstruck, and was also Clairee in the movie version of Steel Magnolias. Among her TV credits was Dr. Barbara Moreno on Search For Tomorrow. She was related to former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis. She died last week at age 89.

    RIP, all three of them. Each one left an enduring legacy. :(

    I didn't realize that Michael Dukakis was related to Olympia!
